Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 21st day of January, 2015.

WOW, it is Wednesday.

Seems like mmm Wednesday ……

Just being silly.

I think that is what Wednesdays should be all about …. being silly.

Cracking jokes ….. lots of laughter …..

What a great way to break up the week …..

Because we all know that Thursdays bring on Friday and that is the weekend.

Mondays are always Mondays just because it was just the weekend and no matter what …. it will be the first day back to work …

Now this is for all of us that work in a office Monday through Friday.

I do know about other weeks where the days all run together and weekends are just that when other people have time at home and with their families.

Perhaps taking a day trip or just kicking back and relaxing because they have two days for which they can clean and relax.

But for all of us who know both ways of work we do appreciate our days off and generally make the most of them.

My day off from both jobs is Saturday.

So I am very blessed because right now my daughter and her family live with me until their house is finished so she helps (actually does most of the cleaning).

On Saturdays my main task is laundry and anything to do with Alvin (vet visits, hair cut, baths), coffee with my friends and errands.

During the other nights that I am not working at the store I fill them with all of the other things that I like to do: write, jewellery, watching television ……. mmmm

Well sounds like it is almost time to go ……

The troops are rallying.

I hope that no matter how your week runs that you will consider making Wednesdays ….. SILLY WEDNESDAYS.

After all it is so healthy for us to laugh and enjoy our lives.

Unfortunately the realty of it is we work too hard.

Let us make the time to have some fun ….

Play in the snow.

Perfect time for us here to make snowmen with the snow melting.

Go for a walk.

Turn on some music and dance. Alone or with someone.

Happy Silly Wednesday.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. she always makes me laugh.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of August, 2014.

Just remembered today is the 6th Anniversary of my nephew “T” and his wife “S” ….. Happy Anniversary Guys.

Just a few minutes ago my daughter and son-in-law left for the weekend.

They are going to look after his niece and nephew while their parents go away for a mini break.

MMM, just me and the puppies left in the house ….. it is quiet.

I have a “TO DO” list of things that I would like to accomplish over the weekend and also I work on Sunday.

Today is get the kitchen and spare bedroom upstairs in order.

The air feels cool as I sit here in the office typing away with the window opened slightly.

When I got home from work last night just after ten – I took Alvin for a walk.

AM thinking that I will take Elton and Penny after I have breakfast before it gets hot.

Then everyone will have had some recent exercise.

All of the puppies received haircuts and baths yesterday.

They all look handsome and beautiful for Miss Penny.

Alvin needed it and looks so good …. like a new doggie.

Well I guess I had better get this day going ….. it is almost nine already.

My how the time flies.

I hope that you are having a great weekend thus far.

Take care.

Special Hello to: all my family back in Regina …… have a great long weekend.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Wow, welcome to DAY   ” 777″  which represents the number of days that Alvin and I have been together.

Isn’t that crazy!  Seems like only yesterday that he came to live with me and then again it feels like we have been together forever.

I think that we should be celebrating …… that is a long time ….. a great deal of days and nights….

We actually did celebrate a bit early …. we both got “hair cuts” …. me on Friday and Al yesterday.

Both way shorter.

I do not know about Alvin but I feel so much lighter and younger.

My hair was past the half way point on my back ( I have not had my hair that long since I was 17-18 ).

Today is Monday, February 20th, 2012 and it is FAMILY DAY.

Celebrated all across this wonderful country of ours.

I am over the moon as I am blessed to have today off from both of my jobs.

Yesterday I worked from 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at BBW …..

We were as I would like to call us: the “Fairy GodMother Effect”  …… wave your wand and voila.

Only the “voila” took us four hours of “sweating” to accomplish…

But everything looks brand new again….

I am so happy that the sky is blue and the sun is shining for my last day before heading back to my office job.

Oh, I have one more story to share with you.

Yesterday as I noted we had to be at work extra early and I got to the mall about 6:30 a.m.

I parked the car and went on my way to work.

Unbeknownst to me …..

When I arrived back to the car after work which was about 3:40 p.m. …. from a distance I noticed that the driver’s window appeared to be open, wide open.

My heart was in my stomach.

OMG, what happened.

I had not considered for one moment that someone might have broken the window.

As I neared the car and confirmed that the window was open, my heart sank.

It had been snowing off and on for part of the day.

Luckily for me ….. there was only a little snow inside the car.

I quickly closed the window and began to wipe up the snow.

Afterwards I cleaned off the windows and as I was about to get into the car to head home …. a young man wearing a bright yellow jacket came toward me.

In bold black letters:  S-E-C-U-R-I-T-Y.

My heart sank temporarily …..

What now?

I found out that he was in fact my “ANGEL” in disguise of a construction security guard.

He told me that he had got to work about 6:40 a.m. that morning and when he happened to glance over to where the car was parked it appeared that the back window was out and then he noticed the drivers window.

Thinking it had been either vandalized or perhaps a stolen vehicle …. he wandered over (it was very close by).

He found the driver’s window to be wide open and the back window was closed.

He told me that at this point he did not know if it had was stolen or not.

So when he saw me ….. he was relieved.

Talk about luck ……. on the first day that we have had snow in a long while ….. and only a little bit got inside the car …..

Talk about luck ….. that this particular young man took the time to come and check the car…. and then

Talk about luck ….. when he watched the car all day long until I got there.

I am so blessed …… when I told the kids about what happened ….. well you see it is their car ….. they were surprised and relieved.

So on this Family Day …. I am feeling more than great …… I have the best family, friends and also blessed with the kindness of strangers.

Really what more can a person ask for ……

Time to go as Amanda is on her way over and we are going to work on some jewelry today.

I also want to bake some banana muffins or perhaps a loaf….

Have a great day everyone.

Special Hello: to all of the families out there …… remember families can be of all configurations …… Happy Family Day!


Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ……. together forever ……. 🙂
