Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 6th day of July, 2018.

The sky is partially overcast at this time of the day.

Another HOT one is on the way.

I have windows OPEN at this moment at each end of the house so that the breeze can come into our house and cool the air.

So far so good.

The air feels cooler.

The furnace FAN is on and an electric fan all working together to cool the house for Mr. Alvin.

With the office window open I can hear the humming of the cars and trucks on the nearby highway that encircles our city.

Today is Friday.

Thank goodness for the weekends.

Just seeing the sun making its’ way higher in the morning sky.


I am reminded by just how important it is to be surrounded by positive energy.

Work is one of those places that can be negative.

At work I sit and work, I seldom participate in any conversations.

Somedays the negativity washes over me like a COLD shower leaving me feel drained and blue.

If only people would think about what comes out of their mouths, if only.

I am far from perfect and have from time to time SAID the wrong words.

If you work with people please be aware of others.

Be kind and recognize that perhaps others are in the same position as you are OR perhaps worse.


I am so grateful that I have a quiet home with Alvin.

He greets me every night and from time to time gets vocal.

But that is okay.

We all have to something to say.


Well here it is almost time to leave for work once again.

Grateful today is Friday.

Grateful that the house is cool for Mr. Alvin.

Grateful that I prepared the bags of clothing and odds and ends for DIABETES to pick up today.

Always good to donate.


Special Hello to: my sister ….. have a wonderful day.

Always, Carol & 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
