Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 29th day of November, 2015.

The second last day of November …. where did it go?

I think that we say and think that every single month.

Time just has a way of marching on, right!

That is why it is so important to live each day to the fullest.

Now fullest does not necessarily mean that you have to get up at 5:00 a.m. and go to bed at midnight filling the day full of doing things.

Fullest to me, means that when you go to bed at night that you have done your very best.

I believe that living each day to the fullest is not so much about the number of things that you accomplished from your “list” but more about how you felt, and reacted to situations/people through the course of your day.

We all tend to judge ourselves and others.

How about we try not to.

Turn those nasty thoughts and remarks into a happy dance.

Instead of making others feel bad and making yourself look “like a butt” try to make others feel good …. say something pleasant / do something nice.

You will feel so much better.

Just be your very best self.

Be kind …. Be respectful …… do what you can do to that end.

Do not be disappointed or critical of yourself just do better that is why we have tomorrows.

Living each day to the fullest ….. I smiled at everyone.  I treated myself and others with kindness and respect.  I felt good about how I handled each situation and each encounter.

Food for thought.

Now it is time to get this day going …. Mr. Alvin’s haircut and bath were rescheduled to today as yesterday got away on me.  Finish the laundry and have some fun with me Alvin.

Thank you.

Special Hello: to my fellow humans …. let us always do better today than yesterday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 25th day of April, 2015.

Well guess what happened overnight?

Can you guess?

Coloured rain?

IT SNOWED.

OH no!

Well on the good news front it pretty much melted as it reached the ground.

Just a light layer on the patio furniture, windshields on the neighbouring vehicles and on the grass.

I am so happy and grateful that the young man arrived at my door last night from Canadian Property STARS and aerated both the front and the back lawn.

Perfect timing.

It was kind of funny that two days ago I tossed around the idea of having another company come and possibly do the aeration and maybe power rake.

Last spring CPS did our lawn and it did not really do much but then again I did not water much as I was depending on the rain.

The young man who aerated the lawn last night did a much better job so I think we are going to have beautiful lush grass.

YAY.

Well the weekends are now my favourite days of the week.

I am at HOME.

I love being at HOME.

I am happiest at HOME.

Cleaning ….. writing ….. visiting …… WALKING with ALVIN……making jewellery……cooking and all of the things that I can do at home.

Home is my most favourite place on this EARTH.

I am happy to be at home with a long to do list for this Saturday.

But I can take my time ….. no rushing ….. I can stop for a coffee break …… stop and go for a walk ….. do things in whatever order I wish.

Oh how I am loving this Saturday.

Alvin is loving having me at home now – I can just tell.

I am loving being at home with him.

Tomorrow my beautiful daughter and grand-puppies are coming for brunch/breakfast which will be “pancakes” …. her favourite and then a trip to COSTCO.

YAY …. what a grand weekend.

Well time to go and grab that coffee and perhaps start the laundry.

I think that sounds fine.

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I was in the throes of making banana muffins when the young man arrived on my doorstep to do the lawn ….. he went home with some muffins.  He was so excited.  I was excited that he would want them.

It was funny ,I put four in a plastic container and when I saw all of the guys climbing into the van (with the trailer hauling the equipment), I asked if he would like more to share as he unzipped his backpack, and placed the container inside, he said “just for me” and smiled.

Nice young man.

GREAT NIGHT had by ALL.

Today is a great day and I hope that you are enjoying this Saturday as well.

No matter what the weather …. just do your thing.

Happy Saturday.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello to: my daughter and family ….. we miss you guys.  Still seems strange to wake up and no one else in the house except Alvin…..

Always, Carol and Alvin
