Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 2nd day of October, 2015.

WOW, it is October now.

Well into fall.

The past few days have been absolutely gorgeous.

Alvin and I have thoroughly enjoyed our walks.

Last night when we were just about to turn down the path to the lake, I heard a young girl shout “Hello Carol.”

I turned to see a black car and a little girl’s face beaming out the window ….. one of the kids in our neighbourhood.

Now this was special …. you will never guess why??

I will tell you.

Because it is always Mr. Alvin who gets the recognition/attention.

Which is okay by me but when someone shouted my name ….. I was super excited.

YAY …..

Last night after work while Mr. Alvin was chowing down – I was going to make a phone call and found I had a message.

So upon checking said message … I found it was from my dear cousin “J.”

I wrote down the number and called her right away …..

Would seem she will be visiting my Edmonton today to see a play at the Citadel.

So guess what?

I get to have a visit …. overnight with my cousin, go see a play at the Citadel (theatre not movies) and go out for supper before the play.  ALL HAPPENING TONIGHT.

Now just seeing my cousin would have been cause enough to be SUPER EXCITED but to go out on top of it …. well there are no words.

I will really have to set my concentration on deep mode today….

I was worried about Mr. Alvin but then I thought well I will be home to feed him and let him outside etc …. I had an idea that perhaps he could have a sleepover at his sister’s house.

Called his sister and she said “of course.”

They will be in the neighbourhood at our Vet on way home ……

Perfection.

I am so blessed.

Slept in this morning …. couldn’t sleep ….. once too many times on the sofa with the microwave timer set.

Anyway my neighbour is giving me a ride to work.

So lucky ….. I am on top of the moon …….

So somedays when you think that life is going pretty well …. like my Steeped Tea sales are whistling a long …. it is the weekend soon ….. and then all of the above happens …. well ….. okay now I am babbling.

But I am HAPPY …… can you hear Mr. P. Williams just a singing that song … love his voice.  Oh and THE VOICE this season …. incredible ……. I have quite a few favourites…..

Well almost time to go and grab my lunch and make sure I have everything ready to make a quick change after work…..

Just beaming at this end …….

Have a great great Friday and I hope that you get that call that brightens your day or maybe a knock at the door.

Something extra to push your over the HAPPINESS PLUS METER.

Special Hello to: my cousin “J” who is coming my way and to my sister – got your email ….. talk soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Well here we are at Wednesday – March 21st, 2012.

We are officially in springtime.

I love spring.

The smell, the sounds …..

The whole of it.

I remember when I was a little girl walking in the pasture (field) on the farm, and for as far as I could see it would be a sea of purple ….. crocuses.

They were from what I remember a furry flower, and I guess that helped them from freezing on those cold spring nights.

I truly loved seeing those flowers ….. they marked renewal for me …… a new beginning as I would imagine every spring.

I also remember that the snow would gradually melt and the smell of spring would linger in my senses for weeks.

Water would slowly run from the melting of the snow.

Sometimes on the farm there would be “dirty snow” remaining on the north side of the house until the beginning of July.

Now it seems that spring arrives ….. the temperature rises almost overnight and the snow melts …. almost overnight …

The grass is brown one day and green the next ….. trees bud, blossom and bloom……

Perhaps spring is only in my imagination and boosted a bit by the memory of a small girl.

But it is my memory and I shall treasure it forever.

I hope that you have wonderful memories to draw upon for comfort and entertainment.

Have a happy second day of spring.

Special Hello: to all those wee spring flowers carefully starting to break through the soil and the snow ….

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ….. ah, my Alvin….. I am so blessed….

Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning Everyone !

I was reminded by a thought when I was in bed last night of something that happened to me when I was a little girl.

This event changed my life forever.

It made me realize that I can do anything ….

If you have read the book “THE SECRET” ……

Then you have heard or read the term “Thoughts become Things” ….

This is so true.

So funny that I have read the book so many times and have been practicing the positive feelings and outlook.

I have read all of the amazing stories of people who using the Law of Attraction have brought miracles of all description into their lives.

Only I had not remembered yet about my miracle.

I can use my mind and my thoughts to create the life that I want ….

Dream BIG.

I am so blessed and I am so grateful.

So on this Monday …… use your mind to create your day ….. deliberately ….. intend it.

This is the best Monday ever!

 

Special Hello to:  Linda, Mary Lynn, Pat (my coffee buddies from Regina).

 

Always, Carol
