Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 17th day of August, 2015.

Wow another August Monday morning to enjoy.

The sun is coming up a bit later each morning …. shorter days.

The air is cool as summer slowly turns into fall.

I love late summer and fall.

Most especially fall.

After last week’s blast of hot hot air it is a good 10 degrees cooler during the day.

Much easier at night for people to sleep as it gets quite cool during the night.

The temperature in the house was 68 degrees F, this morning.

Well Alvin and I had an unusual Sunday as my neighbour in the other half of our duplex held a “front lawn sale” ….

We ended up out front from basically 9:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Few inside breaks as it was kind of cool to be just sitting …..

It was relaxing and fun.

I found some items that I could use so helped with her sales.

Alvin enjoyed all the folks who stopped by.

I had him on a leash and at some points sitting on my lap to help keep me warm.

Ended up with a winter vest on and thankfully I had put on socks (yup socks with sandals).

We even weeded our front flower beds in between customers.

Leftovers of peach salsa and tortilla chips for lunch and a couple pots of hot coffee.

Well time to get going to the office.

I hope that you all had some time to yourself and enjoyed your weekend.

If you were working I hope that you did take some “me” time.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello to: yes, sister …. so far this tea venture has been great …. am loving it. ┬áLots to learn.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 21st day of September, 2014.

It is a bright sunny warm day here in Edmonton.

My neighbour is having a “front lawn” sale so my daughter and I checked it out.

Picked up a few things ….

Did not get carried away ….

Only items I knew that I would use ……

After giving and selling a ton of things this summer, the last thing that I want to do is get a house full of items that I do not need.

It is so easy to pick up things when on sale or at garage sales because of the pricing.

But really ……

ONLY GET WHAT YOU REALLY NEED.

That is my motto.

We, North Americans are notorious for accumulating material things.

I think we should start a trend and all downsize.

My neighbour also told me of a friend of hers that was doing a 21 day cleanse.

It was not the cleanse for your body but for your soul.

Starting on Day one you give away one item until you are up to 21 items per day.

What a great idea.

Wished that I would have thought of that…..

I think that for every item other than food that you bring into the house you must give away an item.

That way you never get overloaded with things.

Well almost time to leave for work ….. have to go to the mall early as we need to pick up a few things and I am on the hunt for a good pair of winter boots.

The kind that actually keep your feet and legs warm……

Something that has good grip on the ice and snow.

Wish me luck.

Happy Fall to You.

Special Hello to: all those people who are “cleansing your soul” …… you will feel better as you clean it ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
