Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 4th day of February, 2017.

The sun is rising.

It is cold out but not snowing.

Looks like the perfect winter day.

My daughter just called.

She is bringing Mr. Alvin home this morning.

YAY.

Me Alvin is coming home.

Always good to see my daughter.

 

Don’t you always love the weekends?

Even thought they are usually jammed packed with things to do around the house, grocery shopping and the like …

But it is at home in your home with your peeps …. your loved ones.

Even though we may like our co-workers and our job …. there is nothing like “Home Sweet Home.”

Right?

I decided to get a jump on things and did a few items from my list last night so it will make my “to do list” a bit shorter.

More time to spend cuddling and playing with Mr. Alvin.

 

Just thoughts of gratitude this morning.

I truly feel blessed and grateful to have my own home, amazing family and friends, a job, good health and so much more.

Take a moment if you are feeling grateful and just SMILE.

Nothing like smiling to bring up your joy level.

I know on my way home from work when I am on the bus and all I really want to do is just get home and cannot wait …. I smile.

People might wonder …. so be it.

Smiling makes me feel good.

 

So smile today.

Have an awesome Saturday.

Excited to have coffee and catch up with my girl and snuggle with me Alvin.

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends ….. I am smiling at you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 23rd day of March, 2016.

Mid week …..

Actually for me only today and tomorrow to work as it is an extra long weekend for us.

I am so grateful to have some extra time off.

Alvin is going after work to his Sisters for a sleepover until Friday.

She will bring him home and stay for a visit …. I always LOVE her visits.

So I packed him food, treats (cooked carrots as they have to be soft), his blue blanket and his medicine.

He loves his blue blanket.

This was the special blanket that his Foster Parents gave him when I adopted him.

The blanket covers the seat and arms of the chair by the window so he lays on it every day except laundry day.

Amazingly enough the blanket looks like new and it is six years old.

I will miss him as I always do but it is important for him to spend time with his sister, brother-in-law and Elton.

He will have fun for sure.

 

I have been thinking as of late about all of the children and animals that are not allowed to live proper happy, safe lives because of ADULT human beings.

There is always an add on television or on social media about the abuse and neglect going on across this planet.

It breaks my heart and whenever I hear or see these stories I just want to give the person doing these terrible atrocities  a SMACK across the head (I know violence does not help).

I am outraged at these ongoing actions and it hurts to my core.

POWER,  MONEY and downright GREED …..

Something needs to be done.

This needs to be stopped.

What is wrong with these people?

My wish is that every living creature on this planet is able to live their entire lives in peace, happy and safe.

We all deserve this ….. EVERY creature big or small.

 

I hope that you would intervene if you saw a child or an animal being neglected or abused.

It is up to us to help …..

 

Well it is time to get ready to leave for work.

I hope that you have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those people who work hard each day to bring goodness and light to every person and animal they encounter.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 16th day of April, 2015.

Well today is  moving day.

Sun shining – check

Coffee made – check

Up and dressed – check

Everything packed – check

Yesterday the kids received the keys to their brand new house/their home and did the final walk through.

Me and the puppies were so excited to go and check it all out.

The house has that brand new smell that I absolutely love.

It is gorgeous ….. down to the colour scheme.

Alvin, I guess I should mention was a bit less than thrilled about the car ride.

But he made it both ways …. drooling and panting but did not through up……

Poor little guy.

I really do not know what to do about that other than he needs to do it more often perhaps ….. then he might settle down better.

The puppies definitely know something is up.

One hour till the movers arrive.

I am on puppy patrol.

Wherever the movers are ….. we are not.

That is the plan.

There are three guys coming with the moving truck so it won’t take them long to get everything loaded.

This is short as I have a few things to help my daughter with before the movers arrive.

I hope that you have a grand Thursday.

Today is a great day but brings with the greatness a sadness as I bid my family a fond adieu …… they won’t be far away, thank goodness.

Special Hello to: to all those folks who have family moving away …. hopefully it is not too far.

Always, Carol and Alvin
