Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! Today is September 29, 2022. Second last day of September for 2022. This month seems to be flying by although at this point in my life, I could say that honestly for most months. Yesterday was at the office. It was the office as I would prefer to be working from home. I love working at home. I missed Alvin but had comfort that someone was checking on him. Next week we are back to three days per week and I hope that this schedule will remain intact. At least that way a person has some time at home with no commute. Now that the days are getting shorter, it will be dark soon by the time we get home from work making it harder to go for walks. We can manage until the white stuff arrives but after that it will be difficult. I am grateful for all the days that I can work from home and be with Mr. Alvin. Did you know that 14 in dog years is 98 in human years? He does very well for that age and then some.

There are some days when you receive news that really puts your life into perspective. Sometimes those situations that one has been stressing / fretting about – just do not seem to be that important any longer. So in the grand scheme of things, in life – I am so grateful that I am alive, that both Alvin and I are in good health, that I live in this beautiful home in this great neighborhood in this wonderful Country, that I am surrounded by loving and supportive friends and neighbors, that I can see the beauty in the leaves as they change colour all around me, that I can hear the music playing on the radio, that I can dance if I want to, that I can sing if I please, that I can walk and talk and do things, that I have time. So when someone or something whether at work or in your personal life gets you down or feeling stressed, just remember we all have a limited amount of time on this earth. DO NOT SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! Words to live by. I am going to do my best to stop with Alvin and smell the “roses” not to be worried about the time. I am going to reach out to my family and friends on a regular basis. I am going to do my best not to listen to gossip or to respond to that “silliness.” I am going to do my best to think of all the GREAT people in my life. I realize that I have in fact, a very great life. I am going to laugh more and play more. I am going to do my best to just live my life!

So on this Thursday, the last day of work for me this week, I wish you a great and wonderful day. The sky appears to be hues of pinks and blues, so pretty.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus, possibilities and coffee.

Always, Carol & Alvin

COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Tuesday, June 13, 2017 and it is the 58 day until my 60th Birthday.

I wonder how many days it will take before the countdown skips a day or two?

Just kidding or perhaps not.

So yesterday was my serious one and from here on in …. just observations and positive stuff.

 

I was thinking last night when I was in bed about all the different types of telephones that I have used over my lifetime thus far.

There was the phone on the wall we had on the farm.

Everyone had a specific “number of rings” and everyone on that line could listen to the other’s calls.

Yes, that was the start of the “party line,” and gossip.

We all knew the folks who listened in on your calls.

Then we had the “rotary dial” – I believe that was the name.

I remember when we got the touch button phones.

The FLIP phones ….the portables …… all versions of the modern day CELL PHONE.

I am almost OLD enough to remember the two cans on a piece of string (just kidding).

Time flies and technology shakes its’ magic wand.

 

Things have changed.

 

Always, Carol
