Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 29th day of January, 2015.

How are you this morning?

Another weekend about to arrive.

What are your plans?

Mine are pretty much the same from week to week.

I have a list of things to do on Saturday my day off for the week.

The list can range from laundry which is always on the top to running out to take Alvin to the Vet to have his pedicure to coffee with my girl friends to making jewellery to cleaning.

It is a varied list for the most part from week to week.


I am very blessed and even though sometimes my “EGO” gets in the way ( I do not like when it rears it’s ugly head as I always go over and over the situation and give myself heck ).

I guess most people have a moment or three.

I try very hard every day to be polite, helpful and kind and not to let my feelings which are my EGO take over a situation.

Because it usually means I let a comment or situation be personal and most times they are not.

Last night I let some comments get my EGO and I regret a couple of things that I said and not that they were particularly mean or low-spirited but I felt regretful for letting the words leave my mouth.

You know what I mean.

I believe that most people let it happen from time to time.

Sometimes it is just that we take things personally when they are not meant to be .

Anyway …. that is my “thought” for this Friday.

Try to … I will be a better, more thoughtful, kind and generous person today.

Thank you for reading and I love your comments.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers ….. great job.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S: this thought has always ran through my mind ….. who are the people who get to design the “facial tissues boxes” ….. the KLEENEX boxes and such.  They always do such an awesome job.  Now I want my kleenex boxes to match my decor.  I would love to design these boxes.  I think this would be one of the best jobs on the planet and you never hear about it.

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of September, 2014.

This morning as it is a bit later the sun is shining brightly.

I am feeling so grateful this morning.

Grateful that I have a roof over my head …

Grateful that it is my own house….

Grateful that I have the best kids and grand-puppies and of course, me Alvin….

Grateful that I am always surrounded by the best friends and family that anyone could ever ask for …..

Grateful that I am in great health …..

Grateful that I have siblings who remind me that all things are possible…..

Grateful that even when the sun doesn’t shine the world is bright ….

Grateful that a cup of coffee with a dear friend is a great way to start the weekend…..

Grateful that I have such wonderful neighbours…..

Grateful that I have a computer so that I can write this blog…..

Grateful that I live in this amazing country …..

Grateful that all things are possible.

I ask you to take a few minutes on this Saturday to sit back and list on paper, on the computer, on your phone or just in your head or aloud ….


Grateful to be able to see and hear the world around me.

So thankful for the beauty that Mother Nature bestows upon us.

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. yes SKYPE soon …. maybe tomorrow morning before I work at the store …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 2nd of October, 2013.

I hope you are doing great this morning. 

I am feeling wonderful.


Last night I moved all of my outdoor furniture and plants into the garage.

They were forecasting the “wet white stuff” but it looks like only rain this morning, YAY.


One thing I am curious about ….. how often do you over think things?

Do you play things over and over in your head before acting?

It is different to think about what you are going to say in a situation.

I know sometimes I wished that I had thought things through a bit more before opening my mouth.

I think that for most people there are situations that we are comfortable with making a quick decision, and not over thinking things.

I think that when it is something we are uncomfortable with we hesitate and mull things over and over.

I do believe that most people do not like confrontation.

We as a race I think tend to be passive more than aggressive.

That being said I think our emotions might drive us to be aggressive in situations.

Emotions like fear, anger and greed.

I know when I am uncertain about something I tend to play it over and over in my head.

If I had just thought about it and acted upon it sooner than later, I would have saved myself some agony.

Well something to think about…..

Where do you fall?

I hope this makes sense ……. early morning thoughts ……. ah, my comfy bed……

Special Hello to: THINKERS

Always, Carol and Alvin
