Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 13th day of March, 2015.

Wow, Friday the 13th ….. I think it is my lucky day ….. well it is Friday after all.

I am so blessed.

Had an awesome Thursday ….. got lots accomplished at the office and met some incredible people that were shopping at “my” store.

Yesterday was one of my double duty days.

Say that three times fast.

I have decided now that I will be working seven days a week that I must make a list of the regular chores and schedule them in ….. otherwise I may forget to do laundry or mow the grass.

Then save some time for walks with Alvin.

Time for reading, writing and making jewellery.

Picking up trash around the neighbour and a couple of other projects I have on the go.

Also time for coffee with my girls.

Time for my daughter …. making jewellery ….

Time for me….. well that will all of the above things ….

Well I hope that you have an awesome Friday…..

Be grateful for all that you have and all that you are ….

You are the best and I am so grateful that you spend your precious time with me.

I do so appreciate it.

Always take time for you …. walking your doggie, walking yourself, coffee with your friends, yoga alone in the dark or on the deck in the sunshine.

Well here I go ready to tackle another day …. perhaps “tackle” is too strong of a word … but nonetheless.

Special Hello to: all of the people that I meet over the course of a week who constantly remind me that life is wonderful.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 19th day of July 2013.

Up before eight overcast but already feels muggy.  Small pools of water and wet grass evidence of rainfall overnight.  What a beautiful morning.  So glorious.  The fragrance of the remaining roses lined our walk around the lake.  I must get some of those roses for my flower beds.

Today is my Friday off from the office (not that office).  What a grand morning.  Already have walked Alvin, had breakfast, changed bedding, wrote in my journal and now my blog, then put sheets in washer and followed by picking up trash in the neighbourhood.  Once I am done I will mow the grass (that is mine, and two of my neighbours (we take turns) out front and then mine in the back and then quickly freshen up and go for COFFEE at my dear friend “G’s” house.  All before lunch.  YAY.  I feel great.  I have a TO DO list that has at least 30 items on it.  Now some of them are small things that only require a few minutes while others might take some time.  Always feels good to accomplish things.


So I will keep this short.  Just wanted to share my morning…..


Well better get going as I do not want to lose momentum ….. you know what that is like.

I would just like to thank all of the new people who are reading my blog and to those who have been reading …. thank you, thank you.  You are making my dreams come true.

Have a great weekend.

Special Hello to:  every one who has this day off from your job …. remember to take a deep breath and enjoy a few minutes of pure joy…….


Always, Carol and Alvin
