Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of April, 2016.

How are you doing this fine mid week morning?

I am doing pretty good – we are doing very well, I mean.

Me and Alvin.

Alvin enjoyed having Elton come for the day.

I took the boys for a walk after they had supper and stuff.

We even visited with some folks in the neighbourhood.

It was a great walk.

Elton was so full of energy …. you would never know he was almost 13.

So wonderful to see.

I hope that when I am of equal age that I have that much “energy and fire.”

Age is something that truly creeps up on you …. even though it is just a number ….. there are things that come with age.

Like forgetting things (but you can do puzzles that help).

Like getting stiff (exercise more, most especially stretching, do some yoga).

Like wrinkles (wash and moisture and do no smoke).

Like insomnia (drink herbal teas and take warm baths before bed).

Like being grumpy (have some patience).

These are just a few things that have been noted between me and friends who are over 1/2 century mark.

But if you live your life – take things in stride.

Reach for the sky (dream).

Then age is just a number and it is what happens.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Time for this cat to leave for work.

Special Hello to: my sister who is soaking up the sun in Hawaii …… wish I was there.

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 4th day of April, 2014.

Today is 4th day of the 4th month of the year 2014.

Sure lots of fours.

I am always intrigued by numbers.

How they arrive to you on a daily basis.

Whether you believe in numerology or not – numbers always play a significant role in our lives.

Numbers are attached to everything we do.

Each second, minute, hour, day, month and year has a number attached to it.

Sometimes if you have a number or series of numbers that you attach a certain amount of “luck” to ….. they sometimes appear in the oddest of places.

On a license plate, on a street sign, on television, in a newspaper, in a book or absolutely anywhere you could see.

So four has a nice ring to it.

I like the number four …..

No matter what you say or do or think ….. there is always a number attached to a memory.

So take a couple of minutes and think about what memories are attached to say “4” ……

They may be pleasant or not so much …..

I hope that you enjoy this 4th day of the 4th month ……

I am happy it is Friday and that I get to go and see my friends at the store ….. and work, of course.

Have a GREAT GREAT weekend.

Oh, I also get to shop for more beads for a special order ….. so will be fun.

It is always wonderful when I get to spend time with my daughter.

Also have a coffee date with my friend who just got back from Hawaii a few days ago.

So Saturday is going to be a FUN day.

Always remember to take some time out of your busy day and do something FUN.

I do ……

Yes, Mr. Alvin ….. walks with you, too “Buddy”

Special Hello to: all those folks who celebrate a birthday today…. Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 29th day of August, 2013.

I was just wondering how many people think about the passing of time.

Last night on our way home from work we, being my daughter, son-in-law and myself were just chatting.

We remarked on how I am now 56 and my Mom was just 55 when she passed away almost twenty years ago.

Also that my paternal Grandmother was 56 when I was born.

She was 32 when she gave birth to my Dad in 1933.

My daughter is 33.

My Mom would have celebrated her 75th Birthday a few days ago and my Dad would be 80 this November.

My paternal Grandmother was 97 when she passed in 1998.

I am always enthralled by numbers and such.

Do you notice these things?

Does it make you wonder?

Another thought …. today is my last day of work at the office and then I am officially on vacation for one week.

I am so looking forward to getting my office and computer stuff in order and working on our Dear Stella Jewellery.

Doing all things that I love.

Also doing some visiting and coffee “ing” and perhaps having an extra walk or two with my Alvin.

Well on this absolutely gorgeous Thursday morning from my home to yours, have a wonderful day.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello: to all those parents who are running around picking up school supplies – I sort of remember those days.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

I always wonder …. why certain number combinations keep showing up in my life.

I was born in 1957 and “57” has been showing up daily for the past couple or so months.

Does that mean anything?  I do not know.

Do certain number combinations show up in your life?

That is what I am pondering for this 9th of July.

I would LOVE for the SIX numbers on my 649 lottery ticket to come up …..

Now that would be one series of numbers that I know definitely know the meaning for …. to…. YAY.

Happier life …….  I would be as happy as I am at any given moment but it would mean “complete peace of mind” …

After all isn’t that what we all strive for ….. peace of mind ……

So after that thought provoking jumble of words …… HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY NIGHT.

Me and Alvin are going to kick back later and watch a movie.

Always, Carol
