Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 13th day of September, 2013.

Yes, it is Friday the 13th and it is a GLORIOUS day here in Edmonton.

The sun is shining, there is a slight coolness to the air making it the perfect morning.

A few minutes ago I heard geese honking as they pass overhead.

Ah, flying south ….. oh how I wished that we would have a nice long fall.


The colours in this glass mosaic vase are some of the colours of fall.

I love the oranges, reds and yellows every shade.


Soon the ground will look like this ….. I love leaves …. mmmm

As I dream of a long, warm and beautiful fall I hope that you are enjoying a cup of coffee outside in the sunshine.

I hope that you are loving life and that life is loving you.

Just a short note this morning as I want to go and enjoy what this morning has to offer.

I thank you all for taking the time to read my blog …. my words as it means the world to me.

Have a great great day.

May a “rainbow” shine on your “wall” today and make you smile.

Happy Friday everyone.

Special Hello to: all those bloggers out there giving us your passion everyday.

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 9th day of September, 2013.

So on this Monday morning I wonder what makes everyone happy?

Is it love?  Money?  A big house?  Having a family?  Having whatever you want to eat each day?

Is it being safe?  Is it knowing that you are surrounded by the people that you love?  Is it having a job that you are passionate about?

Is it dreaming?  Is it pursuing those dreams?  Is it writing?  Is it creating art?  Is it being in great health?  Is it going on vacations?

Is it travelling all over the world?  Is it cooking for your family?  Is it walking with your dog?  Is it sipping on a great cup of coffee on the patio on a Saturday morning?

Is it watching the night sky?  Is it stopping to smell the roses?

There are so many possibilities.

For Happiness.

Is it that you are just plain happy with life in general?

Are you naturally happy and do not need material things to make you happy?

What makes or creates happiness in our lives?

Something to ponder, to think about and perhaps create conversation around the water cooler or over a cup of coffee.

I hope that you are happy.

Special Hello to: all those positive energy happy people …. keep up the great work.


Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Happiness is a RED LEASH.

Happiness is being the “leader of your pack” ……

Now, I know in my heart that being in charge or being the leader is not “really happiness” …. but let me tell you

when the dog is pulling you along or

your 5 year old is screaming because you wouldn’t buy them the latest new toy and you are in the middle of a busy store, or

your teenager is having a meltdown because they think they need the latest designer blue jeans to live or

your partner just cannot seem to understand why you need a night out with the girls to relax.

Believe me ….. Happiness is the RED LEASH…..

Regaining some kind of order in your life is all about the red leash and being “the leader of your pack”.

So when the kids are driving you crazy or your spouse just doesn’t get it or the world seems to be banding against you ….

grab your “red leash” ……. relax …… be strong …… be powerful……. be the great person you were meant to be!!


Always, Carol

Thought for the day……

Love yourself, be full of joy and happiness.

Then you can love others.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol
