Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 21st day of February, 2018.

Today was my Grandmother Stella’s Birthday.

If she were alive she would be 117.

I miss my days with her.

She taught me so much and sometimes said things that I did not wish to hear.

Happy Birthday Gran.

 

I would like to think that it is warming up but not sure at this point.

Yesterday was cold.

Who knows.

I do know one thing – spring is right around the corner.

Just a few weeks until our time changes.

We put our clocks ahead one hour ….. now that takes some getting used to ….. losing an hour.

 

Last night as I was chatting with a friend at the bus stop.

A bus stopped, and I had not really been paying attention when my friend “C” appeared in the door way of the bus.

She said …. “Come on, wanna a ride.”

I quickly said “Have a good night to my other friend” and hopped onto the bus.

I also thanked the bus driver for waiting and he said “No problem, there was a red light.”

Made me giggle.

 

What a great Tuesday I had ….. I got so much done at work …… more than my TO DO LIST.

Today will be even better.

Stay focused and give it my all.

 

With being home so early and able to see the ground beneath us, I figured it was time to walk.

The weather has been cold, icy and on those nice nights too much salt on the walks.

We made it to the park and home but my poor Alvin seemed to find all of the salt.

I did my best to steer him away and when he stepped on it, I quickly wiped his paws with my mitts and scarf.

I guess I should take a towel with me.

During my ride home last night we chatted about the salt and walks.

Came up with an idea ….. baby socks ….. I should try them.

I am pretty certain that Alvin will not keep them on his paws but you never know.

At least it may help.

That way if he wears them …. I would know okay to purchase actual booties for pups.

 

Well time to get this show on the road once again.

I truly hope that you have a fantastic Wednesday.

Yesterday on my bus ride to work I repeated my mantra over and over.

I tell you …. certainly helped me get through the work day.

Try your mantra ……

If you do not have one ….. make one up…..

You have to start somewhere.

Happy Wednesday.

 

Special Hello to: my friend “V” ….. finally tried all of the items in the Valentine’s gift box and everything was AMAZING.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of February, 2017.

Today was my paternal Grandmother’s Birthday.

She was born this day 116 years ago.

Her legacy lives on in her daughter and grand-children and great-children.

My daughter and I named our jewellery line/business after my Grandma Stella.

She was always full of surprises.

 

Yesterday was a quiet day.

I had coffee in the morning and a visit with my neighbour.

Alvin loved the attention and took advantage to say the least.

 

Well here we are back to work again.

The days off always seem to fly by but then again so do the workdays.

In approximately three weeks we will be moving our clocks ahead by one hour.

I do like moving ahead because it means less getting ready in the darkness ….

 

Food for thought.

Do you have something or someone in your life that makes you crazy?

In your thoughts all of the time?

Not in a good way.

Does this something or someone lead you to cry yourself to sleep some/most nights?

My advice:  if you have tried approaching the situation head on, and nothing changes.

Simple walk away.

Life is too short to be miserable some or most of the time.

 

Just my approach to life in my “golden” years.

Always surround yourself with love and light.

No drama.

Who needs it.

 

Have a great day.

I hope that you all enjoyed Family Day yesterday.

 

Special Hello to: You ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 21st day of February, 2016.

Today was my Grandma Stella’s Birthday.

She passed away at 97 years of age back in 1998.

 

I love this time of day because other than the warm air being pushed by the furnace fan, and the clicking of the keys as I make these words, they are the only sounds I hear.

I am pleased to announce that Mr. Alvin made a full recovery.

Guess he just had an upset tummy.

We enjoyed a walk yesterday after laundry was done and just before his supper.

It was a bit cooler with the odd snowflake falling out of the sky.

 

I also planned a birthday supper for one of my friends as she turns 70 on the 23rd which also happens to be my sister’s birthday.

The birthday supper that I am hosting will be Saturday, February 27th, 2016.

I decided on carrot for the birthday cake with a slight twist no cream cheese icing but my special icing instead.

It will be homemade vegetarian spaghetti sauce with pasta and PARM cheese, peas for the veggie and oregano infused biscuits.

Should be good.

 

The sky is slightly cloudy with those morning clouds but I can see the sun coming up.

Oh, I am so excited for spring.

Supposed to be on the plus side today for temperatures and low plus side for the next few days.

 

Well I suppose I should get this show on the road ….. I need to rinse my hair it feels yucky ……

Today will be a mix of things.

I think today is bath day for the boy ….. he needs his ears cleaned and some TLC.

So as soon as I gather up the laundry drying in the basement and empty the dishwasher and have some breakfast and coffee ….. BATH TIME, BUDDY.

Not one of his favourite things but doing earlier might be better.

 

Well I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Happy Sunday to you.

 

Special Hello to: all those February born babies …. I seem to know so many.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 21st day of February, 2014.

Today is my Grandma Stella’s Birthday ….. she was born in 1901 and she would have been 113 today.

Isn’t that crazy ….. I wished that she was still here.

She was a unique and special person ….. she lived her life to her own “beat.”

Happy Birthday Grandma wherever you are …..

 

Sometimes when I wake up I feel very reflective.

Other times I am thinking of what is going to happen.

I am thinking “WINNING THE LOTTERY” …..

The jackpot is $50 MILLION and our group at work has a ticket.

It is about time that a group won again.

We sure could do lots of amazing things with that much.

It would be about $3.3 million each.

WOW, WOW, and WOW.

Doing my happy dance ….. 🙂

 

I am so blessed in my life and the money would just be the icing on the cake.

To have financial freedom.

 

So on this fearless Friday I am dreaming of the big win.

I am visualizing and feeling great.

Thank you Universe.

 

You know what at the end of the day –  I have already won big.

I have the best puppy dog a gal would ever ask for and the “best” daughter.

I have a great son-in-law and the cutest grand-puppies.

I have my OWN house ( I have always wanted my own place with a yard for flowers).

I have a rocking wonderful sister and two crazy good brothers.

Lots of nieces and nephews and cousins.

I have more friends than a person should be blessed to have ….

I am in great health.

I love my life.

 

There you  have it ….. I have WON big ……

I am so grateful.

Have the best day everyone.

Dream big and follow your heart.

 

Special Hello to: my family who are my support and my loves – you are my dream come true.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin …. my main “dog” ….
