Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 25th day of April, 2017.

I now know why I was having an “off day” ….. apparently there is/was a full moon.

That darn moon always plays with me ……

Cannot see the moon for the overcast sky but I will take the word of the person who made the statement.

Snow and rain mix was most of Monday.

We shall see what happens today.


Well yesterday I wore a new pair of shoes that I had picked up on the weekend from the Thrift store …. big mistake to wear them to work the first day.

They did not feel great with socks off the get go so I removed said socks.

Another mistake.

I had a couple of blisters before day’s end.

So I donned my winter boots and wore them for the rest of the day.

Which leads me to a cute story.

This morning I decided to place a couple of bandaids on my feet on the “delicate spots.”

As I was opening the bandaids – Mr. Alvin came along to check things out.

So I explained to him what I was doing.  He kept watching closely and listening intently.

Man oh man, those eyes of his – could melt even the coldest of hearts.

Big brown … soft beautiful eyes..

As I was opening three ….. he watched and listened and sniffed at each one.

I guess he was making sure that I wasn’t doing wrong.

Such a little honey, my boy.

Lesson learned about the shoes.

They felt so good in the store and were like new.


I have to start incorporating some type of exercise other than walking into my daily routine and it has been a long winter, just saying.


So here we go again to work ….. HI HO …. HI HO ….. it’s off to work I go …..


Okay time to get this SHOW on the road.

I hope that you all have a fantastic day.

Keep safe as you go out and about this day.


Special Hello to:  my fellow bloggers …..

Always, Carol & Alvin






Thought for the day….

Welcome to Monday, June 25th, 2012.

It is a gorgeous Monday morning here in Edmonton.

We had rain overnight so the grass is glistening and oh, so beautiful.

Happy to report that the garage sale was a huge success.

Sure met some interesting people.

We were most happy with the results and it just started to rain as I was shutting down yesterday on the third day.

I must admit I was “pooped” ……. today will be a quiet evening …… after supper Alvin and I will go for a walk.

I removed all of the signs but two, and will take them down this evening while Alvin and I are out and about.

Well I hope that you have the most wonderful day.

Today is my early day to start work so have to make this very short.

Special Hello to:  all those folks who held a garage sale this past weekend or those who plan to in the near future ….. good luck and remember to have patience.  I had to relearn that lesson a couple of times.

But at the end of the day I am most grateful to all of those people who came and made our sale a success.  Also am grateful to Amanda, Gillian and Signey (Madeline) who were great company.  They all sold things in the sale as well.


Always, Carol and Alvin (gotta go)…..  🙂
