Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 6th day of August, 2015.

Wow, one week into August.

It has been a great one thus far.

In just three sleeps I will celebrate my 58th Birthday and in five sleeps one of my brothers will turn 53.

My sister turned 56 in February and our baby brother turned 50 in January.

It only happens for two years every decade.

Kind of cool.

I cannot believe that I am almost “60.”

It is not that I am afraid of that number or even growing old for that matter (for the most part).

It is just that wow …… it seems like I am still in my 40’s or younger.

I feel young and my friends and family keep me there.

I am so blessed ….. truly I am.

This morning the kids are dropping off the grand-puppies.

They are staying with me and Alvin for two nights and three days as they are looking after my son-in-law’s niece and nephew.

So we are excited.

It is always wonderful to have Elton and Penny visit us.

Alvin is beside him …. actually I only mentioned in passing quietly otherwise he would have been running around and looking out of the window ……

Well only a few minutes until they arrive.

After they get the pups settled they will drop me at my office on the way to theirs. (just like the old days) ….. NICE.

I took tomorrow off as a vacation day so will have some quality time with the pups.

The sun is coming up and shining on the neighbour in the back lane’s huge garage that stands almost done ….. apparently waiting for “paper work” from the City.

I hope that you have an amazing Thursday.

If today is your birthday have a wonderful one.

If today is not your birthday have a wonderful one.

Stay safe and have fun.

Special Hello to: my sister who is back home in Regina and my brother in Calgary ….. to our brother who hosted … THANK YOU.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 14th day of June 2013.

TODAY IS MY “777” blog and that is my number ….. my self designated great fulfilling lucky wonderful number.

It has also happened on a Friday which is the day of the week, that I was born.

Also this morning I noticed that the roses along the pathway by the lake are in full bud and will be filling the air with their beautiful fragrance very soon.

They so remind me of my Grandma Stella who was had a green thumb……

So I feel crazy wonderful and fantastic this morning.

Today is the day …..

I am so happy to be sharing this day with you.

The sun was just coming up this morning when Alvin and I walked at 5:00 and the little birdies were singing to us as we walked along.

I felt just like Snow White …. with the birds singing to her.

I am so glad that you have chosen to come along with me along this journey.

I love to write and have been doing so since I was eight or at least that is how far back I remember writing.

I loved words as a child.

I always did extremely well in spelling tests.

So it is on this day that I celebrate how far I have come and I know now that I can do it.

So book here I come …..

I have the weekend off Saturday through Monday from both jobs so wonderful time at home with Alvin and my grand-puppies.

Their parents have a wedding to attend.

Lucky me to be surrounded by the three of them for the weekend, I am so grateful.

Well time to go …. spend the day at the office and then off to the store.

We are having a semi-annual sale at the moment so it will be busy ….. just the way I like it.

So have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading my blog and giving me the courage and support to carry on writing.

I am so grateful.

Special Hello: to all those wonderful friends who share my passion for words.


Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin ….. he is proud of his Momma ……
