Second Half of the NEW YEAR – last quarter

Good Morning All. Wow, can you believe it is Friday already? Time flies whether you are having fun or not. I always like to say “time flies when you are having fun.” I would like to think that for the most part I am a positive person trying to exude positive energy. Of course, there are times when I am positively not positive. We all have our little moments and we hope they are just little moments. Life zooms from beginning until end and if we don’t stop and enjoy it ….. well it is gone and there are no do overs. My life is pretty sweet. I own my home (well the bank does but I will ), I am surrounded by great neighbours, I have wonderful friends and family, I am in good health, I have my trusty companion Mr. Alvin always at my side, I have a job and I can work from home, I live in the best country on the planet, we have 20% of the world’s fresh water in Canada (just thought I would mention that fact), I am able to write everyday (love to write), I can see and hear, touch and feel and smell, I well, the list could go on forever. Needless to say I am very happy and happy within myself. That is important. Absolutely. Joy within before you can spread that joy.

Alvin and I went for a lovely walk yesterday at lunchtime. The air was warm on our faces as we walked along. Alvin only needed to wear his sweater yesterday and I could tell he was very happy about that.

This morning Alvin’s best friend Teddy and his little sister Kobie are coming to spend the day with us as their parents are going to their farm. Alvin is excited and wants to go downstairs already ….. Mr. patience, remember?

Gotta love this guy ….. he is truly spoiled ….. he wants what he wants when he wants it….. oh well …… what can a Momma do.

The sun is beginning to rise and clear away the night sky. I can see light ribbons of orange and light colours starting to fill the horizon. Love sunrises.

Well I guess time to go and put on that pot of coffee to perk. Go outside and pick up the earlier little parcel of poop. I haven’t mentioned that in a bit. LOL. I wish you a wonderful day …… don’t worry about the date ….. I believe it to be lucky as my youngest brother was born on Friday, the 13th of January, 1965. Happy Friday. Be safe and healthy and spread that kindness and respect wherever you go …..

Living my life with kindness, respect and love. Goodness shall prevail.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 7th day of July, 2016.

WOW, July 7th ….. 7th day of the 7th month ….. should be a lucky day.

Isn’t every day a lucky day ….

The sky is overcast and it is raining off and on.

Our office is cold so I have dressed a bit warmer today but likely by the time we are off work it will have warmed up.

Gotta love these days.

It seems to be that in any multi story building it is hard to regulate air conditioning.

There is always an area that is super cold or hot and some are just right.

Sounds like the three bears story.

Well today is payday and that is great.

That thought reminded me that I had a threatening phone call with a badly recorded message.

A poorly devised SCAM ….. I was not fooled.

The Federal Government would not be calling and leaving that kind of message before they took everything.

Not too likely.

I kept the message as I was going to have someone listen to it and report it to the RCMP.

Anyway …. bad people out there.

Be aware.

Well here we go almost time to leave once again.

Alvin had fun yesterday with Elton.

Elton is so full of energy.

I am so happy that the kids went ahead with his surgery a few months ago.

It was expensive but how can you put a price on “life.”

Anyway, I enjoyed the walk with my boys Alvin and Elton.

Elton was so enjoying sniffing about …..

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Happy Thursday ….

May your day be filled with love and laughter.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. yes, SKYPE on Sunday…… do not forget (this message is mostly for me) LOL.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 13th day of December, 2013.

Friday the 13th …..

Somehow that always conjures up mixed feelings.

I like to think of it as an especially lucky day.

One of those specially blessed days.

Where everything is possible.

Where you can wipe the slate clean?

Carry on?

New beginnings.

One of those days.

Remember yesterday when you had an envious moment or THREE.

Well now you can truly start all over.

Truly you can do that anytime but why not celebrate starting anew on Friday the 13th.

So on this great end to the week and to this new beginning …. let us celebrate.

I hope that you just take this opportunity and run with it.

Be happy …. be kind ….

Do something nice for a stranger or someone you know.

You know that clerk in the mall …. maybe give them a gift card for a cup of coffee and a muffin.

You know that elderly couple who live three doors down ….. pull out some of that Christmas baking and one of your extra Christmas tins (you know the ones) and make up a little treat and to top it off … shovel their sidewalks.  This only works if you live in a place where there is snow.  If no snow …. just give them the “cookies.”

I think you know what I mean.

We or at least most of us have so much ….

We can afford to share.

Actually we can’t afford not to share …

Make sense?

Have a wonderful day.

It is getting closer.

I have been a good girl so I hope that Santa remembers to stop by my house.

I do not ask for anything big ….. perhaps some new socks or a notebook and a pen.

Special Hello to: my sister and nephew who are travelling this day to visit our brother.  Safe travels.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Welcome to Friday, January 13th, 2012 …..

Today is a special day as my youngest brother celebrates his 47th Birthday.  So Happy Birthday Little Brother …… I hope that you have the greatest day.

Also this morning Mr. Alvin decided to change our morning routine up a bit.  As I was getting my notebook and pen – Alvin was rummaging around in his toy box.  His toy box is a small rubbermaid container  which lays on it’s side so that he can get things out.

When I was ready to sit down at the table to start writing which is the point where I pick him up, and place him on my lap – he comes over with his snowball in his mouth, ready to play.  So I figured what the hay …… so we played “fetch” for a few minutes.  Very cute ….. playing is always on his terms.  When he is ready to stop …. he stops.  No loud parade …. he just walks away.

So two things today …… Happy Birthday to my brother.  I so remember when he was born.  I do not remember the day that he came home from the hospital, but I do remember him as a baby.  Giving him his bottle and changing diapers, I was all of eight.  He was my dolly, a real life doll.  He was a pretty good baby and got lots of attention from his four siblings.  He always followed his older sisters around, and although there was only one year between the three boys …. he spent most of his time with us.  We played a lot of school and used our imaginations daily.  So have a great day …… there in Calgary.

Special Hello: to all of those lucky people to be born on this day ….. Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol
