Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 26th day of July, 2016.

Sun is shining and the sky is scattered with small purple blue clouds, so very pretty.

There is a slight breeze making it comfortable.

Forecast is for a warm, humid week.

Last night was one of those nights when things went awry but worked out in the end.

Thank goodness for that….

What can you do?

Freak out one minute and then be calm in the next.

Not a good idea to waste time being anxious …. I will admit sometimes as was last night it was slightly more than one minute.

But all you can do is to do your best realizing that sometimes things get forgotten, mixed up and so on and so forth.

We are perfect imperfections.

Well just a few more sleeps until my vacation time.

I am so excited to have some extra time at home ….. no rushing about …… I can get some things done around here.

We can lounge and have coffee on the deck.

Sleep in …. ┬ámaybe a bit.

Go for long walks and see what is going on in other neighbourhoods.

We have not done that for a long time.

We being me and Alvin, of course.

Just live life and enjoy.

Well time to get the show on the road once again.

The mornings sure seem to zip by.

I am grateful for good weather, wonderfully patient people that I call friends, and good food still in my fridge.

I am grateful for my family.

Well time now.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. SKYPE on Sunday?

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of December, 2014.

“17” days until Christmas Eve…..

How was your weekend?

Mine was great.

Busy as per usual.

I can check off “Christmas Baking” as completed.

Taste test done by my daughter and son-in-law and all is good in that department.

Last night I wrote up some cards for the office and will take them in this morning.

Still have a few more to do.

I also have a few more to mail.

Our weather has been great …. feels like spring.

Supposed to be plus temperatures all this week.

How crazy is that for December in Alberta?

It is crazy, believe me.

I am so excited to have some time off at Christmas from the office.

Still working some of those days at the store but to have only one job will be a good break for me.

Time to recharge my batteries so to speak.

I am almost ready for Christmas.

We measured the puppies so that I can go and pick up their new harnesses which is their Christmas present from me.

I am so excited.

They are so much nicer than the ones they have now.

New technology.

Well almost time to go to work.

I hope that you had an awesome day and that you took some time for yourself, and that when you were in the company of others you were kind and respectful.

It is not an easy thing to do all the time.

I am a work in progress.

It is not that we are not necessarily kind and respectful, more like impatient and sometimes perhaps a bit rude.

I know at this time of year with people rushing around including you and me; it is something that we need to take into account.

I know that sometimes my patience runs a bit low.

Sounds like the “bus” is almost ready to leave so better go grab my lunch and coat.

Have a great day.

Remember as long as we try to be good and decent human beings – we likely are.

I hope that you are enjoying this holiday season.

Special Hello to: family and friends, near and far.

Always, Carol and Alvin
