Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! Well I super slept in this morning. It was 7:28 a.m. and it is now 7:43 so this post will be short. I am going to post some photos. I am sorry. We were up a few times during the night which led to this ….

What a summer we had along with a couple of fav photos from last Christmas.

I am so sorry for the rush.

Have a wonderful day.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus, possibilities and COFFEE. Definitely need coffee this morning.

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


Thought for the day……

It was almost 11:30 p.m. when I got to bed last night and up at 7:20 as Alvin had to go outside.

The sun was already up ( OMG ) and the sky a beautiful blue.

I am happy, happy, happy to say the least.

So grateful first off that Alvin slept past his usual 4:20 a.m..

Secondly that the sky is blue and the sun is shining.

Thirdly I just feel GREAT.

Ready to take on the world.

So the thought for this day …..


The World can be within your household, neighbourhood, city, country or global.

We are after all – all connected.

So on this Thanksgiving weekend for us Canadians and for you all everywhere.

Have a safe, happy, healthy, wondrous weekend.

Be thankful for all that you have and all that you are.

You are amazing, always remember that!

Take Care.

Always, Carol

P.S. –  A very special Happy Thanksgiving to my dear family and friends all over the globe.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning World…… or at least Wayne, Cindy, Amanda, Janice and the rest of my faithful readers…

Have you tried tried to count your thoughts or at least keep track of what you thought about over the course of a day?

Yikes, the number is staggering.

It definitely though worth working on keeping the mind still ……. no thoughts …..or at least fewer and more selective ones.

I know that I tend to have silly thoughts and they will go to the “dark side” if I do not remain focused on the positive things.

OMG, it is almost 630 and I have to put my lunch in the bag, change Alvin’s water, the stars aren’t out, I wonder if the phones will be busy today, and you get the picture.

It is tiring …. batting all of those thoughts around and around….. I feel like a yo-yo.

We have so many random thoughts in a day.

I have heard the 60,000 number bounced around …… whatever it is ….. we have a lot of them.

So have a great day.

Just keep your thoughts on the “bright side” ….

Always, Carol

Thought for the day…..

OMG, the sun is shining again this morning.

Always it is the simple things in life ….. the things that just happen…

Like the sun rise in the morning.

Like the stars and moon in the evening sky.

We are such lucky and blessed beings.


Have a great day my friends.


Always, Carol
