Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 24th day of February, 2018.

The sun is shining brightly and the sky is a beautiful blue.

Smoke from neighbours chimney signifies that it is still winter and the snow resting on the garage roof tops.

All this I see from my office window.

A birdie flew by …. ah.

The house is quiet without my Alvin.

He is visiting at his sister’s home since Thursday night arriving back home tomorrow morning.

I miss the little guy.

I think that I tossed and turned more than I slept …. too used to have Alvin snuggling next to me.

Some of the gals that I work with had purchased a LOTTO MAX TICKET for last night’s draw.

The draw was for $60 MILLION DOLLARS.

We did not win.

The lucky ticket was purchased in one of our ATLANTIC provinces.

Great to see them win for a change.

I cannot imagine what it would be like to have no thoughts about money.

Imagine having $15 MILLION as that would have been my share.

No mortgage, retirement sooner,than later, and so much more.

It would be wonderful to have access to that kind of money.

If you wanted to donate a large sum to charity – you could.

If you wanted to hop on a plane and go visit family and friends – you could.

If you wanted to hire a professional painter to paint your entire house – you could.

If you wanted to spoil yourself – you could.

If you wanted to pay for someone’s education – you could.

If you wanted to help your siblings and children to retire and make life changes – you could.

If you wanted to help a friend pay off their mortgage – you could.

If you wanted to buy a house for someone that would likely never have that opportunity – you could.

The dream will keep running.

Not giving up.

What would you do with $15 MILLION DOLLARS?

I guess it is time to go and have breakfast, make coffee, empty the dishwasher, tidy up the house and prepare for finishing up canvassing for the HEART AND STROKE FUND.

Followed by dinner and a movie.

Night out with the girls.

I usually stay at home, so this is a nice treat.

Happy Saturday everyone.

Special Hello to: all those folks who are celebrating birthdays today and this month.  It has been a busy birthday month.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, January 30, 2013.

Well we have passed the bitter cold day of yesterday and it feels a bit warmer this morning.

It is snowing here in Edmonton.  It is funny how much we as human beings talk about weather.

I was reminded by someone that sometimes my blog sounds like a weather report for Edmonton.

But I guess we write what we observe and usually that is the first thing that I see in the morning as I write.

 

I always think Alvin looks so cute when he comes in from outside with the snow glistening on his coat (his natural one).

He always makes me smile in the morning as he wants to go out but hesitates at the doorway.

He sniffs the cold air and sounds like he is sneezing as he decides ….

But when you have to go you have to go and no matter how cold it is …..

I always have to giggle when people at work are sharing their similar pet stories.

Oh, the puppies.

I am glad that for Alvin and all the other puppies that have good homes .. that their only hardship is having to “go outside.”

I wished that all of the dogs and cats had good homes and were well looked after …..

 

On this beautiful Wednesday morning I hope that life is treating you kindly.

I hope that you have all that you need and a little of what you “want” …. because you deserve it.

I hope that when you wake up to a warm house you think “wow, I am so blessed to have heat” on this cold day.

I hope that when you have your bath or shower you think “I am grateful to be clean” and have running water.

I hope that when you put your clothes on you think “this is great, I am so lucky to have these clean, nice things to wear.”

I hope that when you eat breakfast you think “I am so grateful to have good food to eat.”

Remember that even if you are not a millionaire ….. or live in a big house ….. or have five cars in the garage …. you are BLESSED.

We are lucky …. you are lucky.

I wish you the best day ever.

Spread the wealth ….. be kind …. smile ….. lend a hand.

 

Special Hello to: all those pet owners and kind people ….. you rock.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Isn’t it absolutely wonderful!   The sky was already getting light at 7:00  this morning.   The sun is already up and shining now.  Just like someone upstairs just turned on the light switch.  YAY.  Makes me feel like a millionaire.  The snow on the roof of the garage is gleaming like a field of diamonds.  Looks so pretty.  The smoke from the chimneys is going straight up into the sky like a rocket.

Thought for the day…….. oh, the beauty of Mother Nature.  She never disappoints.

So amazing.

Always be grateful for the sunshine and clear skies.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol
