Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 27th day of November, 2018.

Another beautiful day on the way.

Yesterday was a bit cooler than the past several days but still so nice for this time of year.

A time of the year when weather can change in a heartbeat.

Oh, that is most times of the year.

That is living in Canada.

Our weather can change drastically from morning to noon to night.

My Grandma always said “Variety is the spice of life.”

Do you think she was referring to the weather?

Likely not.

Oh well.

I feel sassy and full of vim and vigour this morning.

Most times I am not an early morning person but perhaps it is the extra things I am doing that are helping.

I started taking Vitamin D, a multi-vitamin and onto MATCHA again with breakfast.

Anyway, I feel great.

Certainly is a good way to begin one’s day.

 

Sunday night I came across something that Charles Dickens had written.

It was on a Christmas card.

I thought it would be appropriate to share it with you:

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

     Charles Dickens

 

Such a lovely sentiment and something that we should all try to do.

I do try and keep positive thoughts in my mind (most of the time) and following with kind and generous actions.

But to say that I will honour Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year – just brings it up to another level.

 

We all have heart ache in our lives.

We all have situations that do not go the way we thought or intended.

We all have moments/times when our thoughts and actions are less than stellar.

If we all just take 5 minutes each day for ourselves.

To bright the light back.

We can live through the heart ache.

We can change our thoughts and intentions.

We can have more stellar thoughts and actions.

If you are feeling great and in a good place …. your thoughts and actions will show this.

 

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Keep Christmas in your heart.

Be kind to yourself and to others.

 

Special Hello to: all our Angels on earth and in in the heavens, thank you.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 21s day of September, 2015.

Rained all night but has stopped now.

I think we have had more rain in September than all summer or at least it seems that way.

How are you feeling this fine Monday morning?

I always have to boost myself up after Sunday nights.

Usually I cannot settle down and go to sleep …. too many thoughts.

Are you this way?

It is just like the night before going on a big trip?

You go through your suitcase ….. do a checklist.

You make sure in your mind that you have your passport, traveller’s cheques, cash.

Because you keep imagining the airline clerk asking for your passport and you cannot find it.

I had that dream and wasn’t even going anywhere.

Who knows … what that means?

You make sure that you gave the spare key to your neighbour who is watching your house while you are gone.

You make sure that unnecessary electrical appliances are unplugged.

The whole gambit …. you go through.

For me most Sundays nights I go through that day, the next, the week and it certainly did not help that it was raining.

Oh well, I made sure that I had some energy boosters for breakfast ( oh, the natural ones of course ).

Green tea – MATCHA ….. very good.

Just in case you are going somewhere ….. always have a checklist.

Passport anyone!

Well it was an interesting Sunday …. my daughter was supposed to come but was not able to in the end.

Part of the plan was to make pancakes (which I did … pumpkin spiced ones) and give Mr. Alvin a hair cut & bath.

OMG, he is such a DIVA.

I will admit that I raised my voice …. likely close to yelling very briefly when I struggled to trim his paws.

Finally I managed to get them trimmed pretty good or at least way better than the time before …..

We did have a good Sunday …… all in all.

Well I guess I had better get this show on the road.

Almost time to go and catch that earlier bus ….

So happy it stopped raining and hopefully the sun will shine today.

Special Hello to: my friends back in Regina …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 1st day of September, 2015.

WOW, it is September ….. yikes.

How many days until Christmas?

I guess first I had better look at Thanksgiving and Halloween and Remembrance Day.

All special days in their own right.

How is it that Christmas shines over all of the rest?

Perhaps maybe because of all the lights!

Okay, being silly here …..

Crazy, being funny at 6:30 in the morning.

I guess the “Matcha” must be working (green tea powder).

I don’t think that it makes one funny ….. just feeling better.

Well it is beginning to lighten outside.

Argh …. it is dark now when we get up in the morning.

The sun rises about 7:00 a.m.

Do you have plans for September?

Oh, and how could I possibly forget this weekend.

It is Labour Day.

One of my dear and long-time friends from Regina is coming to visit this weekend.

I am so excited …. can barely sleep or think.

I guess that is why I have not been sleeping proper.

It is always great when I have a chance to visit friends.

The years pass by and sometimes it can be a few in between visits.

Thank goodness for technology other than the telephone.

We can email and SKYPE.

Wishing you the best first day of September.

My favourite season is officially only a few weeks away.

I love everything about fall /autumn (depending on where you live).

The colours / the temperatures / the air / the scents.

Just the perfect time of year.

Well almost time to hit the road to work once again.

I hope that this day brings you closer to realizing your dreams.

Happy Tuesday.

Special Hello to: all those folks out there who love the fall.

Always, Carol and Alvin
