Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 5th day of December, 2015.

Another beautiful morning here in Edmonton weather wise and life wise.

I am feeling very blessed AND

There is a tad bit of being overwhelmed this morning with the list in my head of what needs to be done.

It is almost nine …. ARGH …. I had to sleep in ….. likely not the best plan but nevertheless I did.

Alvin has a pedicure this morning at 10:00.

I need to run to Shoppers DrugMart and Save-on (grocery store).

Laundry needs to be done.

More Christmas cards to write and deliver (not all today of course).

A few miscellaneous items.

Clean the HOUSE ….

BAKING ….. today and tomorrow.

Somedays it would be lovely to have a car, I think.

Oh well once I get my list written up and get that first cup of coffee into my belly, I will be much better.

Just do one thing at one time.

I should not be complaining as I lead a pretty great life.

Okay enough of WOE IS ME…..

I have my own home, I have family and friends who love and support me, I have me Alvin here, I have employment and I am in good health.

So much to be thankful for ….

If you are feeling a bit low and just need that boost.

Take a minute and write down all of the things you are grateful for ….

Come on …. there is always something to be thankful for ….. grab that pen.

I am going to get this day started and we will have fun …..

I love to bake ……

Have the best day everyone.

Special Hello to: my sister …. yes, we will SKYPE tomorrow evening.

Always, Carol and Alvin





Thought for the day…..

Every morning upon rising and taking Alvin outside for his morning “constitutional” …. I sit at the table and write one page of whatever comes to my mind.

Most days I begin with a few lines of my previous day and then I write down all the things that I am grateful for and also set the tone for this day.

I think that this is a good exercise for most people.  It is calming and thought provoking.

So if you are so inclined ….. take a few minutes and sit down at your kitchen table and write out your gratitude list.

Guaranteed to start your day on the right track.

Have a great Tuesday everyone.

Hello Cindy, Wayne, Anick and Janice.

Always, Carol

P.S. time to celebrate this is my “377th” POST, YAY …… break out the champagne, cheese and crackers.
