Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 22nd day of December, 2016.

TWO sleeps till Christmas Eve.

It is funny that even though “time” is the one constant on this plane of existence that it feels as though it goes more quickly as the years go by.

Now that is a mouth full at this time of day.

Mr. Alvin has been waking up at about 3:00 for the past while and I manage to get him settled until around 4:00 (usually 3:45 a.m.).

Not sure why he does not appear to be sick or upset.

Just cannot get his time straightened out.

So by the time we hit the sofa for a bit after he eats (not a good idea) ….. I am getting a bit silly for lack of a better word at this moment.

Anyway back to front.

Christmas is just around the corner.

I am working on my Christmas gifts and will have them ready soon.

It feels nice actually using things you have and making them into something new as a gift to another.

We appreciate something just a bit more, I think, when it is hand-made or hand-crafted.

Today is our last work day and I am grateful for that and hopefully I am able to zip through the mail with little or no interruptions.

We have been receiving so much mail this last while.

It would be great to have it caught up before Christmas break.

Anyway because we were up early and I just needed a few more minutes on the sofa … that constant old time is … well you know.

Time to go and grab my coat and boots and head for the bus.

I hope that you have an awesome Thursday.

Remember that even when things seem the darkest the light will come on.

Remember to give everyone a chance.

Remember be kind to yourself first and then to others.

Kindness should rule the world.

Happy Thursday.

Special Hello to: all my friends all OVER the world….. Merry Christmas.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. I am most looking forward to catching up with reading of blogs …. somehow there is never enough time and so many to read.

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 23rd day of February, 2016.

Today is the Birthday of my sister and two of my girl friends.

We wish them all the most wonderful of days.

May this day be filled with love and laughter.

May your year be filled with good health and abundance.

Happy Birthday “C”, “D” and “A” ……


Our weather has been absolutely incredible as of late.

The next few days are to be seeing plus temperatures ….. single digits but that is okay.

Hard to believe that it is February.

The lack of snow is not a good sign for spring and the farmers.

Who knows maybe we will have a wet spring and then it would all work out great.

I do not remember if the groundhogs saw their shadows or not.

Only time can tell.


I just heard a huge sigh from Mr. Alvin as he lays curled up on the small piece of rug under my office chair (it is longer than it is wide so there is room for him at one end).

It is amazing that 99% of the time when I am at home ….. he is right there at my side.

Dogs are such loyal creatures.

I can see where some of them seek out their human friends when they pass on.

So sad as they can not articulate their feelings ……

So for our time together on this plane of existence …… I will continue to treat him with kindness, love and respect.

My buddy …… my pal.

He looks so small when he curls up in a ball.

He is so cute ……


Well here we go again can you believe ….. time for me to finish getting ready for work.

The nights sure seem to pass by so quickly.

Last night I slept right through …… that is definitely an accomplishment for someone of my age ….. LOL.


Happy Tuesday ……

Remember to express your kindness wherever you may go …..

Everyone deserves to be treated with kindness.


Special Hello to: ¬†Happy Birthday Ladies ……

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 11th day of October, 2013.

The last time this day will come and go.

Do you ever think about the fact that this very nanosecond, this moment will be here and gone and never to return?

Unless there are several different planes of existence or dimensions if you will.

I find it fascinating to think that there might be more than one of each of us, existing out there.

It would be cool to step through a portal and be in a different time and see yourself doing something totally different.

I would like to see myself as being financially secure and working from home.

I would like to see myself involved in a happy loving relationship with the most dreamy man on the planet.

I would like to be a self sufficient writer and jewellery maker.

That’s my dream.

Who knows.

So many ideas …..

Something to think about, anyway.

So happy Friday everyone.

For those living in Canada …. Happy Thanksgiving long weekend.

We all have so much to be thankful for ….

Special Hello to: my fellow Canadians.

Always, Carol and Alvin
