Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 5th day of April, 2015.

Happy Easter.

The sun is shining here in Edmonton on my first official day not working at Bath & Body Works.

Yesterday’s shift was bittersweet.

My shift was from noon until 8:00 p.m.

Over the course of the day I said good-bye to my friends ….. some I have worked with for almost four years others not as long.

I shall miss them all.

There were hugs and tears.

I received email addresses and phone numbers so that I may keep in touch.

There is a group of us that meet at Bath & Body Works and we shall get together from time to time.

It seems weird not getting ready to go to work at the store but I am so excited to begin this next chapter in my life.

Everyone enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies and card that I made.

I shall miss meeting people and all of the fragrances, too.

 

Our office had voluntary lay-offs so it has doubled my work load.

So this will be easier for me only having “one job” so to speak.

Now I shall have time to visit my friends on a regular basis and to do all of the things that I have been either putting off or doing occasionally.

So on this Sunday …. my plan is to do laundry and give Mr. Alvin a much needed haircut and bath.

 

If you are on the fence about making chances …. just do it.

Sometimes it is scary but at the end of the day sometimes you just have to move on.

Try something new.

Work on the things that you love.

 

Well off to enjoy some coffee and get out of my p.j.’s …..

I wish you a great day …. full of sunshine and laughter.

 

Special Hello to: all of my friends at Bath & Body Works …. you rock. ┬áBest Wishes to everyone.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 4th day of April, 2015.

Well it is overcast and snowing here in Edmonton.

On the deck the snow is sticking as it makes touchdown.

Just a steady stream of rain-like snow coming down.

When I look out of my front window the streets and sides are only wet.

What a start to the weekend, yesterday was bright and sunny, and I think it was 15 degrees celsius here.

Now today exact opposite.

 

Well today is my last shift at the store.

Last night I baked a bunch of chocolate chip cookies to take to the staff this morning.

To show my appreciation for them all.

I am both excited and sad for this day.

Excited to have Friday night and the weekends back but sad to not to see all of my friends.

Today will be bittersweet.

 

Alvin is intently gazing out of our temporary bedroom window.

The kids move into their new house on the 16th which is right around the corner.

So much happening right now.

Still busy but at least now it will be on my own timetable.

 

I hope that if you are travelling on this Easter long weekend that you have clear skies if you are flying and dry safe roads for driving.

I hope that you are surrounded by the love of family and friends.

I hope that you are surrounded by laughter ….. always good to have some giggles.

I hope that perhaps you reach out to someone less fortunate than yourself.

I hope that if you see an animal in distress you help them.

May this weekend be all about love and respect for yourself and others.

Always remembers “others” includes all beings …..

 

Have a great Saturday.

Special Hello to: all those folks who read my blog, thank you so much.

Always, Carol and Alvin
