Living … One day at a time.

HEllo,  good morning and it would be Monday, December 16, 2019.



Tis the week before Christmas.

And all through the world not a human was sitting.

Not even Grandma or Grandpa.

Everyone was running about, here and there.

There was shouting and tears and even some fears.

Would Santa get their letters?

Were the rumours all true?

Would he fulfil their lists?

Would be bring Janie her Barbie and Jimmy his first kiss?

No one could be sure, especially this year.

There were rumours abound.

No one really knew for certain.

Could it possibly be true?

That Santa & his Mrs. were missing.

I heard that they were calling it quits.

After several hundred years who could blame them.

But then who would replace them?

I also heard that they had retired to a tropical island.

What about Rudolph and Comet and Donner and Blitzen and all the reindeer?

What about the Elves?

What about the North Pole?

I guess this is something that we just have to wait and see.

Will he arrive?

With his usual glee?

Or will there be empty stockings this year?

My heart aches with the thought of no Santa Clause.

What a world without that jolly old guy it would be?

I don’t know.

Patience is something we humans forget.

So I promise this year I will be patient and see.

If there is no Santa this year.

I do not know.

Christmas will be different … that much I know.

Happy Monday to ALL

And to ALL a great day.


Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of December, 2013.

Only 23 days until Christmas.

I hope that Santa finds me again this year.

OMG, I was such a good girl …… er I mean WOMAN.

I did my best.

I was kind 98% of the time and the other 2% I felt badly that I was not at the 98% kindness level.

I  did community work by helping to keep out neighbourhood clean.

I was a good neighbour ….

I was a great friend.

I was a good ….. NO GREAT,  MOMMA.

I worked hard and played HARDER.

I was true to myself.

Honest to others.

Thank you and I will see you Christmas EVE.

I will be the one with the Red Flannel Snowflake Pyjamas sitting on the sofa.

See you soon……


ALLways, Carol and Alvin
