Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday and the first day of September, 2013.

Wow, it is a beautiful “summer” day here in Edmonton.

Yesterday morning when my daughter was over for coffee I had a “light bulb” moment of sorts.

It is funny how different generations use things differently.

Here are our different methods of keeping track of appointments and to do lists.

My day planner .... keeper of the lists.

My day planner …. keeper of the lists.


        The modern method, the trusted “I PHONE”

I have found that when you write down everything that you wish to do in a day or a specific time frame and then as each task is completed you cross them off of the list; it gives you a sense of accomplishment.

So try it and see what happens.

You will feel so great.

My daughter noted that on my “to do list” that I even had “coffee with her” and why not.

Then at the end of the day you are reminded that in between all of the work you had a lovely break with your special girl.

So I invite you to try the “list thing out” … doesn’t matter whether it is on paper or on your I PHONE.

Have a great Sunday.

I am going to go and enjoy coffee with my daughter before going to work at the mall.

Thank you for reading my blog.

I hope that you are also enjoying my story – one line at a time.

Special Hello to: all those bloggers you rock and thank you for sharing your stories.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 21st day of May 2013.

How are you this fine morning?

First day back to work?

For me, after the long weekend.

I did work at the store on Friday night and Sunday.

I noticed while working ….. a small child (found out from Mother – 18 months old) was playing with an I Phone or something similar.

She was moving her finger gracefully over the screen just like they do on the crime shows.

Something I have no experience in ….

She was playing games ….. she was 18 months old.

Absolutely mind boggling.

By the time she gets to school she will be BORED …..

I hope that our education system can keep  up with all of  these technology and keeping the children interested.

She will be way above the others.

I do think that socially some of these children might be behind and not catch up …. but who knows.

Guess that is in the hands of the parents.

But very interesting.

I am so behind.

I am getting a tablet so perhaps this “55” year can catch up …. or at least be somewhat “savy” …..

Have a great day.

Time to finish getting ready for work.

Sun shining ….. promises to be a great day.

Special Hello to: parents ….. children ….. technology ….. yikes.


Always, Carol and Alvin
