Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 30th day and second last day of January, 2014.

Just curious.

I was thinking last night and earlier this morning (even earlier than 6:30 a.m. – I was actually have some profound thoughts).

What is your favourite time of day?

I actually have two times and for two special reasons.

In the morning I get to see my daughter on our way to work (as we carpool together) and at night I am greeted at the door by my beloved Alvin.

How much more can one person be blessed?

I know in my heart that I am so lucky and so blessed to have two of the very best “beings” on this planet as my family.

So think about that question, and see if someone you love happens to be a part of  that time of day.

You are very lucky, too.

Have a great, awesome, fantastic day.

Special Hello to: my siblings …. love you guys.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, the 21st day of March, 2013.

Quick weather report:  SNOW.  AGAIN.


I am wondering how “single” people deal with coming home from work or school when you have had a less than a stellar day.

You cannot “kick the dog”as after all he is your best friend …..

No one to talk to or throw your thoughts out at.

Perhaps this is good or not.

I do a lot of thinking and sometimes writing ….

Sometimes I just talk aloud to Alvin, my dog.

Sometimes I cry.

Sometimes I laugh.

Sometimes I eat.

Sometimes I drown myself in television.  Mindless bliss.


I am learning though and have learned over the years …… to take a deep breath and clear my thoughts.

Now, that is not always easy.

Sometimes we work or are around “cranky” individuals who always seem to have something wrong, and they are never happy.

So I work on just being as nice as I can.

Sometimes I have to “vent” and I have a couple of people that I can just mutter a quick “OMG, can you imagine …. or this just happened.”

But I do try very hard to not be that person who every time they encounter another breathing organism they “spew negativity.”


But when you are alone even dancing is not easy.

We were meant to be in pairs and to this day I have just not managed to find the other.

But I shall endure and life goes on.

I do have my Alvin, and I am truly blessed to have the best family and friends a girl could have.


Food for thought ….. if you have any thoughts or comments that you would like to share …. please do.

I love feedback.


Special Hello to:  all those people who are alone, and wish to someday be a pair.

Always, Carol and Alvin
