Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 31st and last day of March, 2015.

Crazy – I cannot believe it is the last day of March.

It seems like only yesterday we were bringing in the New Year.

YIKES, which reminds me …. I have not changed my voicemail greeting.

Oh well ….. at least for those who do call and leave a message they will receive a very upbeat greeting.


I am so glad today is Tuesday as yesterday I was stuck in some kind of “mad gear.”

I do not not what else to call it.

There was nothing really that happened that was bad or super negative that would drive me to be in that frame of mind.

But I was stuck in that gear all day long ….

Until I got home to the puppies.

Followed by going to Costco with my daughter.

Topped up the evening with GIRL GUIDE COOKIES and a walk with my daughter, the puppies and my neighbour came along.

Thank goodness for puppies, cookies and girls.

The girl guides were next door as we were leaving for our walk …. there be girls … on the lawn …. on the sidewalk ….. cookies in a wagon ….. puppies excited …. my neighbour out to buy cookies.

It was so much fun.


Well here we go again time to leave for the office.

The sun is starting to come up …. oh, how I love this time of year.

I am so grateful to have had such a great evening last night.

I hope that you have a great last day of March.

It is promising to be a great one here in Edmonton.


Thank you.


Special Hello to: YOU …..

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 13th day of February, 2015.

What a glorious day it is.

I feel so happy and alive.

More so than ever.


Last night when I went to pick up my supper from one of the vendors in the mall, my favourite place – FRESHI.

I was greeted by huge smiles and even though I was about 4th in line; one of the employees – greeted me “Hello Miss Carol.”

I love how he calls me “Miss Carol.” ……

We are on a first name basis.

A couple of the girls have come into the shop where I work (you know Bath & Body Works) which is nice.

They are the most friendly, most kind, most efficient and professional group of employees that I have ever met.

The food is great, too.

They provide the ultimate in warmth and great customer service.

One of these days I am going to contact the owners to let them know.

I always look forward to going there to pick up my supper.

For a while I ate the same dish now I have been trying new things …..


Well almost time to leave for work …. I can hear my ride going downstairs.

Time to go.

Special Hello to: my friends.

Always, Carol and Alvin
