Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 11th day of February 2019.

Well back to work.

Have to leave Mr. Alvin alone now after four days at home with him.

I always love our time together.

The weather remains cold but now it is snowing.

I would like to make a correction to the name of one of the movies that I noted on my post yesterday.

It was The Incredibles 2 not The Invincibles 2.

When I realized that I had posted the wrong name, I felt very silly.

Not the end of the world, of course.

But still felt silly.

Correction done.


How are you doing today?

Feeling great and full of energy.

Ready to take on your world.

Ready to be the best YOU ever!

I hope that you have the most awesome Monday in recorded history.


Did you watch the Grammys last night?

I think that Alicia Keys did great.

Man, can she play the piano and sing!

Love, loved, loved Dolly Parton.

Great singer and song writer.

Probably one of the best song writers ever.

She has written so many of the greatest songs recorded.

Diana Ross, 75, are you kidding me?

She looks incredible …. and that dress.

Love her music.

MOTOWN, some of the best music ever.

I really enjoyed Lady Gaga singing Shallow from A Star is Born.

Can you imagine if Bradley Cooper was singing with her?

Off the charts, for sure.

I only watch until I heard all of the above so that was just after 8:30 p.m., I think.


Well “here we go again.”

I have had that song in my head and singing all morning.

Not sure if Alvin really appreciates my gift??? or not???


Wishing you a fantastic Monday filled with kindness, respect and always laughter.

We have to have laughter.

Always, a giggle or three.


Special Hello to: My Daughter, My Sister and My Dear Friend – thank you ladies, you rock.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 8th day of April, 2017.

It is raining this morning and has been raining through the night.

Not a hard rain but a lovely soft rain.

Cleaning the earth as it touches down.

The sky is that soft grey colour …. the one that you know is going to last for awhile.

There is no break in the sky …. no sign of the sun.


Alvin and his internal clock.

Up and then down.  Up and then down.

I feel like a yoyo but there was something about getting up at 4:00 or even 6:00 a.m. on a Saturday when you do not have to that was not appealing.

We are up now.

Time to head to the shower perhaps that will give me the boost to get going…. making coffee and pancakes (just in case we have company) and laundry and stuff.

Gotta have clean clothes.


My sister is now in Peru, South America.

I have seen shows on Peru, reads lots of stories and seen it on many a map.

I am excited to hear all about her travels upon her return.


Time to go and have that shower.

Have an awesome day whether you are travelling to faraway places or just going to the grocery store or even just staying home like me.

Special Hello: my sister and her guy …. safe travels.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Tuesday morning and today is August 14th, 2012 and it is the birthday of my great nephew AZLIN.

He is SEVEN today.

It seems like yesterday that he was born.

I remember waiting anxiously in the waiting room with his Grandma (my sister) for his arrival.

That was seven years ago today ……. WOW.

It seems like only yesterday.

All these babies being born and now they are seven, nine, ten, two and one …….

When you remember an event and it seems like only yesterday ….

Then someone kindly jogs your memory to tell you that it was ten years ago or more ….

Well that is just crazy.

It seems like only yesterday or maybe three weeks ago that my daughter was born.

She is thirty-two ……

I just turned “55” last week and that seems unreal to me.

I guess age is simply a number ….. something to remind us of all the memories.

Of all the years that we have to be grateful for ….

Happy Birthday my boy ….. your Anta misses you very much.

I hope that you have a great day.

Birthdays are special as they are a reminder of a life lived …..

So remember to remember on your special day ….

That is the most important thing of all ….. the memories..

Your life is a great memory.

Special Hello to:  all everyone …. have a great day.


Always, Carol and Alvin

In case you were wondering why no blog yesterday … I was home unwell …… but today feel much better.
