Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 2nd day of September, 2015.

It rained a wee bit overnight as the deck has wet splotches here and there.

You can begin to feel the difference in the air that September brings.

It is not so much cold as cool and crisp.

It smells fresh.

You definitely need a wee jacket in the morning while waiting for the bus.

Most especially if there be wind.

I feel the Scots part of me coming out this morning.

Likely soon to be followed by the Irish and English.

What a lovely combination.

Well here it is mid week.

Work has been going well …. busy but that is nothing new.

Somedays I wish that I could be completely caught up when I leave at night.

But alas not likely ….. nature of the beast so to speak.

I am excited we are down to three sleeps before my girl friend arrives from Regina.

I have been patiently waiting since she confirmed her plane ticket.

It will be nice to sip coffee and catch up.

I am also excited to see the photos of her newest grand-baby.

YAY ….. baby photos ……

I wished that they could bottle the smell of a newborn baby.

Well what is on your plate for this fine morning/day?

Going to work?

Staying at home?

Cleaning the house?

Filing papers?

Going for a walk?

Volunteering some time at a local senior’s home or animal shelter?

Cleaning out your closet and bringing your fall/winter clothes to the front?

Lots to do.

Cleaning the yard?

There is always something to do if you wish to do it.

Always start with a list ….. makes life so much easier.

Write down what you have to do ….. even a bit of a timeline if you wish….

Check items off as they are completed.

Trust me you will have such satisfaction when you check an item as done.

YAY ……

I do it all of the time.

Plus, you do not forget anything.

Well here it is time to leave once again.

Happy Wednesday folks.

ENjoy.

Special Hello to: my friend “P” see you soon….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to a Rainy Monday, the 15th day of July 2013.

Well here we are once again …. the beginning of the work week.

I think that for most of us ….. it is a continuous loop …. no beginning or ending.

It seems to work out better ….. Sunday nights no longer keep me up thinking about the week ahead.

Sometimes I don’t sleep but for different reasons.

Part of it comes from my age. ¬†Okay, we will not go there ….. because everyone knows “M” for us older women.

 

I am so lucky, blessed and grateful to be working at Bath & Body Works at West Edmonton Mall.

So many people from all over the world visit us there.

Yesterday we had a family visiting from South America.

They were visiting their other grown daughter who just had a baby …. the first grand-baby on both sides of the family.

Such a wonderful family….. I had so much fun helping them and visiting with them.

I have met people from every corner of the planet and perhaps someday I will have the opportunity to visit their countries.

 

If you could go anywhere on the planet where would you go?

Have you travelled away from your home country?

Or at you like me …. do most of your travelling via others and over the internet.

Thank goodness for technology …..

 

On Saturday I got my very first “smaller” version of a personal computer – “a tablet” …. very cool and a brand new digital camera.

The camera fits in the palm of my hand and now when Alvin and I go for walks I can easily put it in my pocket so that I can take photos and videos.

I know …. I am very lucky …..

 

So on this overcast rainy Monday morning I hope that you enjoy your cup of coffee – or glass of juice or maybe tea …..

Put a smile on your face …..

Close your eyes and travel the globe.

I am going to do that on my break…… yay.

 

Special Hello to: ¬†everyone who enjoys a challenge …… “new technology” ……

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
