It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and another Monday Morning.

That is a good thing actually a great thing.

This may be the most unpopular day of the week.

But the fact that you are reading this post and I am writing it are a great thing.

I hope that this finds you in good health.

 

What did you do this weekend?

As you know I had Friday off after a quiet celebration on Thursday for my daughter’s 40th Birthday.

I did the normal chores like laundry and some cleaning.

Alvin and I had the most glorious walk yesterday the first full one in as many days.

I was blessed to have had a girls night on Saturday with my young friends.

Spoke on the phone with other friends over the weekend.

Did you have a quiet or noisy weekend?

Did you stay home and watch movies?

Did you colour a picture in your daughter or son’s colouring book?

Did you play board games?

Did you go for a walk with your doggie?

Did you make a bit pot of soup, just because?

Well whatever you were doing as long as you are in good health, that is the most important thing of all.

Yesterday I started putting my papers together to do my taxes.

So shouldn’t take me too long.

 

Guess what?

Big news.

Alvin slept through the night.

I would say this is the first time in weeks, months and possibly years.

He did not get up in the middle of the night nor did he stir before the alarm went off.

You may think that perhaps I did not hear him but I always hear him.

Actually I got up once but did not check the time, assuming it was middle of the night.

He appears to be okay nothing out of the norm.

That is my big news.

 

Well it is almost time to head downstairs.

Today we will find out about work.

Are we working through this or is the office closing.

We are closed to the public which is a good thing.

 

Please make sure that if you have an elderly neighbour or someone who is not easily mobile, that you call by and see what they need.

Take them some bathroom tissue and some food items.

Think of others during this time and all times.

Please be kind and respectful.

Please think of others.

We need each other during this time and always.

 

Time to head downstairs.

Pick up the poop.

Grab my lunch and stuff.

 

Have a wonderful Monday.

Be kind and respectful.

Be well.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 11th day of July, 2014.

YAY ….. it is Friday and I get to work at the store tonight after the office job.

I always love going there.

We work hard but have so much fun.

Always meet interesting people.

Oh my “cuteness” is standing on the bed with his front paws resting on the window.

He does love checking out the neighbourhood.

This was a great move.

Changing bedrooms.

Only just over a week until the kids move their furniture in …… they are already moving in boxes.

We are having a garage sale tomorrow to sell a few things but mostly to give away so much.

We have a lot of things that we no longer need or want.

So why not have a garage sale and give things away.

Start a new trend.

Sell a few items but give away more.

I am so excited to have my daughter, son-in-law and grand-puppies living with me and Alvin.

We are going to have so much fun.

It will be so nice to have us all under the same roof.

Company for both me and Alvin.

So much easier to cook for three than one.

So much easier to be three than one.

Well I am looking forward to the next chapter in our lives.

It is always good to help one’s family and my kids have been so good to me.

So on this awesome Friday morning I hope that you are able to help someone.

Whether family, friend or a stranger.

Lend a helping hand.

You will feel great and so will someone else.

Isn’t that really what it is all about ….. helping each other.

Right Mr Alvin?

He is still looking out the window ….. kind of ignoring me, I think.

Oh well.

His alone days are numbered and I am very grateful for that ……

Have a great Friday.

ENJOY.

Happiness and Peace will overcome the world one day soon.

What a great thought.

Special Hello to: my sister …. miss you “bunny.”

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Happy Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012.

I just read something that sparked my interest, and it goes like this:  “always give more value to what you are doing than you are receiving.”

That makes so much sense to me.

So my thought is simply this…….  “always give more to what you are doing than you are receiving” ……. whether you are working, helping a friend or loved one or whatever you are doing …..

Have a wonderful Tuesday and I hope that your dreams are all being realized as we start this New Year …… 2012…..

Special Hello:  to all my friends who are vacationing …… have fun and stay safe.

Always, Carol

Note:  just noticed that this is my “430th” BLOG …… wow, hey…..

Thought for the day……

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT …… ALWAYS, AND I SAY ALWAYS,

HELP OTHERS.

EVEN IF YOU ARE OUT WALKING YOUR DOG, AND YOU SEE SOMEONE STRUGGLING CARRYING A TON OF GROCERIES …

GO HELP.

HELPING IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED BY OTHERS, AND IS SO GOOD FOR YOUR BODY, MIND AND SOUL.

Always, Carol
