Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to the 2nd day of August, 2013.

Happy 5th Anniversary to my first born nephew and his wife.

This is such a wonderful day.

I got to sleep in, of course after getting up to feed Mr. Alvin at 5:00 a.m. ….. so that was nice.

Last night after work I did three loads of laundry, mowed the back lawn and raked it and had a most enjoyable walk with Alvin.

Plus some little things so now it is time to have a morning off and I am on my way to my friend’s house to have COFFEE and a visit.

She always makes me roar with laughter.

Don’t you love people who can make you laugh and tell great stories.

My friend “G” just has a way of telling a story.

She puts her heart and soul into it and it is always so much fun to listen to her retell events.

So on this Friday I wish to all of you “laughter” and more “laughter” and even a great cup of coffee if that is your “thing.”

Also I am going to move my “one line per day” story to another folder but will advise (this should happen this weekend).

So from me to you …. have the best day ever.

I hope that your days are filled with abundance and love, laughter and great health.


Special Hello to: of course the Happy Anniversary Couple ……. you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin





FIRST LINE …..July 25, 2013

As we walk along the water’s edge the coolness leaves my skin with goose bumps and prickles, as if there is someone behind me.

July 26, 2013

Alvin pulls on his leash and brings me back, the fragrance of freshly cut grass fills my nostrils; my heart beat quickens, and I am unable to shake the feeling.

July 28, 2013

The sky is overcast with a hint of sunrise peeking through and the leaves of the trees rustle in the breeze, and I think how did I get here? 

July 29, 2013

What does that mean, and what is making me think these thoughts?

July 30, 2013

All of a sudden the leash tightens as Alvin pulls me forward.

July 31, 2013

My body lurches forward as I fight to keep my balance, what is going on …. “Alvin,” I cry as things appear to be happening in slow motion.

August 1, 2013

Alvin turns his head and with eyes as big as saucers; I suddenly realize what is going to happen.

August 2, 2013

I had no control, and could feel my breath slowly leaving my body as it was happening.
