Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of August, 2018.

There be some BLUE SKY and a bit of a breeze this August morning.

Last night I figured that we should go for a walk.

We have missed a few due to the poor air quality from the smoke.

The air was surprisingly clear and not much smoke.

We enjoyed our walk.

On the half way part of our walk coming toward home, we stopped a chatted to a gentlemen who is always working in his garage.

A couple of houses away lives Teddy (our little four-legged friend).

As we approached his yard, Alvin pulled me as if his life depended on it.

Across the grass we went and toward the sidewalk.

I had to keep looking down so that I would not lose my balance and trip.

He was a dog with a mission.

Up the front stairs and he started barking at the door just as I was able to ring the doorbell.

Our friend “I” answered the door and said “Well hello, perfect timing, come on in.”

I said, “I am sorry but Alvin just pulled me across the lawn and up the walk to your door.”

So in we went for an unexpected visit.

They had just finished supper.

We had a great visit.

Teddy and Alvin.

They ran and around.

Teddy kept jumping up …. so happy to see us.

Sometimes it is those out of the blue happenings that are the most fun.

We bumped into other friends out for a walk on our way home.

What a great night.

 

After returning home, I decided that I wanted to watch the new AVENGERS movie.

This is the one that my neighbour and I did not get to see as there were technical difficulties at the theatre.

Final it is on DEMAND so I was able to rent it.

Really good movie.

Unfortunately I was so tired that I kept nodding off and there was about 45 minutes remaining.

So decided to stop it and will watch it today.

I guess all of that fresh fresh air.

 

Teddy will be spending a few days with us this week.

We always love having him over.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

Still have some items on my TO DO LIST.

One thing I did between yesterday and this morning is to write a letter.

YES, I hand wrote a letter to my Aunt.

I have not done that in a long, long time.

Felt good.

 

Well I want to do some work on preparing the photos of my vacation for this blog.

Do not want to wait too long or I may forget some important item/fact.

Also have to work on my STEEPED TEA and NORWEX businesses.

Somehow they have been slightly neglected this past while with company and vacation.

 

Have an awesome day.

Life is great.

It truly is.

Family and friends.

All of the fur babies in my life.

Happy Sunday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, ditto my darling.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Wednesday Morning and Welcome to the 10th day of April 2013.

How are you this fine morning?

I am doing fantastic.

Today I would like to charge you with a mission to give back to your community.

I know this is a strong statement but I feel over the couple of decades we have lost our sense of community.

This does not mean that you have “less than nice” neighbours.

I mean with regard to helping a stranger, picking up trash outside your “home boundaries”, perhaps donating some of your  time to a library or hospital or an animal shelter.

There are so many things that we can do to help out.

Doesn’t mean we have to spend a billion dollars to do so.

Can you imagine what our world, our beautiful blue/green Earth would be like if WE ALL HELPED ONE ANOTHER.

So on this mid week day I would ask kindly that you all take a few minutes and do something to help your neighbour, a stranger ….. someone outside your boundaries.

Thank you so much.  I appreciate this.

Have a wonderful day.

Spread the joy and kindness.

We all reap what we sow.

Special Hello to:  VOLUNTEERS …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good for the waistline….

Most of us living in North America these days are concerned with our ever expanding waistlines.

Even Dr. Oz is concerned, and has lots of helpful hints on his show.

Oprah has had many, many shows about it.

There are articles in magazines, shows on t.v. (Biggest Loser to name one).

But there is one thing that you can do that has not been mentioned (that I have heard) and it is this……

GET OUT THERE AND HELP OTHERS.

How many times have you been out for a walk and seen someone carrying groceries?

It only takes a few minutes to help out and guess what it “BURNS CALORIES”……

Helping others burns calories.

Somewhere along the way – in this busy society – we have lost our sense of community.

Well, I am on a mission to bring it back.

I think that we should help our family, our friends, our neighbours, and most of all STRANGERS.

Those people become our friends and sometimes even family.

So take the dog for a walk or your children or just yourself.

Be aware of who is around you and please help that person, if you are lucky enough to see them.

They will so appreciate it and so will you.

It is good for the waistline but also good for the mind and soul.

I appreciate your future efforts, and so will those people that you are blessed enough to come across.

Thank you so much.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol
