Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 15th day of August, 2015.

It is overcast here in Edmonton and the deck remains wet from the rain, overnight.

We could use some moisture so it is all good.

At least here in the city.

Farmers well that will be another story.

I am so excited to be back and as always it was something so simple.

Doesn’t it just figure.

Something I could have done myself …. something I did do myself.

When plugging the computer and equipment back in I plugged it into the wrong “jack.”

Can you imagine?

The young man “Abdul” was very sweet and did not make me feel “stupid.”

I did write a few lines on FB yesterday just after I was “live” again after one week.

The troubleshooters for our cable/communications company are in a country on the other side of the world from us.

They do not know the setups (this was from the tech that came to my house).

These people just read from a script so not their fault.

He said they do not usually mention the “jack” in the script ….

If they had – I would have tried putting it in the other jack.

It is very sad that it is always about the money.

Companies having to make more and more money.

Anyway I am very grateful to have television once again and the internet.

So on with life.

I found during the week …. the house to be quiet.

So we listened to more music.

Spent more time outside.

Watched movies on DVD.

Snuggled more.

I think it was a good thing at the end of the day.

I did miss writing my blog, watching my recorded shows and going on FB.

But it was a good thing all in all.

Today I am hosting my second “Steeped Tea” party and am so excited to announce that I am now a Consultant for Steeped Tea.

I love the product and look forward to learning more as time goes on.

Well I have a bunch of things to do before my guests start arriving and thank goodness my “leader” will be leading the party and I will be watching and learning.

I had a wonderful Friday …. my daughter and grand-pups spent the day and slept over.

She helped me put together the second desk for my office and it looks great.

I will post some photos once I get the room in order (not today).

We walked with the pups in the rain.

I won a big prize at our company barbecue on Wednesday.

It was all about popcorn (hot air popcorn maker, ceramic popcorn container, popcorn to pop and Chicago mix popcorn, liquorice, M&Ms and two movies).

The popcorn tasted so yummy as we watched a movie.

Well I had better get this show on the road.

So good to be back.

I hope that you are all well and enjoying your Saturday.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all of my friends and family who sent me wonderful Birthday wishes … it was a wonderful day.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 14th day of July, 2015.

The sky is a clear blue and the sun is shining brightly.

It is a glorious morning here in Edmonton.

I am feeling over the moon filled with gratitude.

I am grateful to live in a peaceful country.

I am grateful to have my own house.

I am grateful that I can make my own choices.

I am grateful to be surrounded by loving and most importantly “supportive” family and friends.

I am just plain brimming with gratitude on this Tuesday morning.

I hope that you are as fortunate as I.

We all too often forget about the important things like being able to walk down the street during the day with no fear of being bombed or attacked.

We forget that we are able to make our own choices …. so very important.

Just the simple day to day life things that we take for granted … clean water …. good food.

So when you are feeling low because you do not have the latest iPhone …… remember……

Well time for me to go to work ….. am running late.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: people all over the world ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……..

Well here it is almost 4:30 on Friday, February 11th, 2011.

My thought for the day is:  KEEP IT SIMPLE.

Simple food, simple pleasures, a good simple life.

Try it ……… you may just find that you love it.

Have a great weekend.


Always, Carol

Thought for the day

Keep it simple.  Most of us tend to over think every facet of our lives.  Even when we sleep our dreams can be complicated.  So for most of the past couple of years I have  made it my mission if you will, to just live my life as simply, and as happily as I can.  Some days when the  hormones rage it can be a challenge, but for the most part I keep it simple.  Try it.  Just breathe, relax.  Do one thing at a time.  Make a list and each time you complete a task, mark it off.  Trust me, that feels so good.  You can see what you have accomplished.  Nothing over complicates life as much a multi-tasking.  You can hold the baby and chat on the phone but stay away from talking on your cell phone, texting to plan a meeting while driving your car and drinking a cup of coffee.  Even in a sentence that is too much.  I guess you get my point.  So my thought for the day is:  keep it simple.
