Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 8th day of July, 2016.

It is partially overcast and breezy here in the City of Edmonton this morning.

YAY, it is the weekend.

So excited for this one.

Time with Alvin, tea tasting with my team leader and team mates, coffee with my girls and a visit from my daughter.

Does not get better than that.

In between I had better get some laundry and cleaning done, ah, do I have to???

Last night one of my neighbours have me a hair cut.

It has been awhile since I actually paid for a hair cut.

Normally I do it myself.

But I was feeling like I needed to treat myself and so I did.

She was going to charge me $25.00 (came to my house) but was late getting here so only charged me $20.00.

Close to being FREE, gotta love that.

I feel so refreshed and free and NEW.

So today I am going to present a new me and a cheery fresh outlook …. get back to me.

Sometimes all it takes is a hair cut to get you back on track.

I feel GREAT this morning.

So that is my thought for the day ….. try something new or just do something you have not done for awhile to refresh your outlook.

Something that will give you that little boost to get going.

I honestly have felt blah, not sick or anything, just that my get up and go had got up and left.

Now is that not a mouth full.

But so true.

If you do not have that get up and go ….. it is hard to do anything other than what you immediately have to do and even that is a strain.

But I am back ….. better than usual.

I feel GREAT.

So here we are once again ….. almost time to leave for work.

Oh, great news.

My friend “V” from Regina …. the one that bakes a wicked biscotti and I mean the most delectable creation on this planet and her treats for Valentine’s and Easter were to die for ..

Well anyway she is coming to  Edmonton to see her brother and she is going to spend some nights with me.

I am so excited.

A visitor.

Well gotta run.

Life is so good.

Something even more wonderful is coming, I can feel it.

I could not before but it is coming …. a dream fulfilled, I think, I know.

Happy Friday.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” so grateful that you are coming to stay with me during your trip to our city.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 18th day of March, 2014.

How was your St. Paddy’s Day ( realized the correct spelling )?

Mine was interesting…… all good on the St. Patrick’s side, anyway.

 

Here we are fast approaching the first day of spring, 2014.

Can you believe it is almost the end of March, already.

Wasn’t it just New Year’s Eve?

 

I am so grateful that the sun is warming the earth here and all around us.

I am so grateful that the snow is melting and that the earth is showing once again.

I am so grateful for the smells and sounds of spring.

 

So on this timely Tuesday – I am so grateful to be alive.

I was thinking this morning I wonder what my grandparents would think of what is going on around us if they were alive?

My Grandma Stella would have embraced the internet and all that it brings.

I could see her sending emails as she loved to write letters ¬†…. perhaps in the beginning she might have been a bit reluctant but she would have converted and surfing the world wide “web.”

I am always amazed by how much of our glorious older people have embraced technology with cellphones and email.

 

I hope that you have an amazing Tuesday.

If you happen to find yourself in a situation that starts to remove your positive sunny outlook and peace of mind ….. stop take a deep breath.

If you can remove yourself from the situation.

If not, with your sunniest face ….. just carry on.

Find the right words …. always good to have a “catch word” that can bring you to your best place.

I have found myself as of late stepping off my glorious plane of peace and positive energy to the “dark side.”

It is not something that I am proud of nor to I wish to stay there but it has happened.

So I am going to practice what I “preach.”

After all, we are all human.

I hope that you have a lovely day.

Wish me luck and I, you.

Take care, my friends.

Special Hello to: my cousin “J” and my sister “C” ….. who have always been supportive and loving ….. thank you.

Always, Carol

P.S. very excited that our first Trade Show for our Dear Stella Jewellery is only four sleeps aways…… YAY
