Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 27th day of January, 2018.

The SUN is shining this morning.

The sky is beautiful with a mixture of colour and clouds.

The thin dark clouds appear to be dissipating and the sun shining more brightly.

What a lovely break after the overcast snowy past couple of days.

Shovelling, argh there was shovelling.

I did all but the driveway last night and will have to do that today.

We have banks of snow on the deck and on the front lawn from me throwing the snow to the side.

I will say this on my walk to the bus yesterday morning the snow shone like a billion diamonds in the street lights.

So beautiful.

 

YAY, it is the weekend.

I must make a TO DO LIST as I have so much that I would like to accomplish this weekend.

So many chores and such running through my head.

Stuff to do.

We all have stuff to do on the weekend.

I sort through the needs to be done stuff first ….

Now Alvin really could use a hair cut and bath.

It is COLD outside.

So the hair cut will be a trim and the bath will be a bath but I will ensure he is dry before he goes outside.

I also have to measure his food as it is getting low.

I was going to get off the bus and go pick it up this week but four out of the five days I got a ride home and one I got off at the grocery store.

The vet is on the other side of home.

Last night it was snowing, the traffic was well crazy and I did not reach the house until 6:00 p.m.

Usually I get home while taking the bus about 5:15 p.m. and with rides it was 4:45 or earlier.

Monday is supposed to be warmer.

A temporary reprieve.

So if there is enough food for Alvin I will get off the bus Monday after work and pick him up a bag.

If there is not enough – well I will bundle up and go.

I think it is too cold for the boy to be out.

I especially think of his poor little paws.

Always laundry, clean the office (put the smaller Christmas tree away to the basement), vacuum, wash floors.

Prepare my friend’s 40th birthday gift and card for next Friday.

I know there are more things to do and that is why I shall sit down and make a list so that nothing gets missed.

I have two days so no need to worry.

Alvin will help where he can.  LOL.

Well I suppose that I should not put off the inevitable any longer as I need to get changed and get this day going.

It was and is always Alvin that makes me get up and get going on the weekend.

I would love to dilly dally longer but he is the BOSS …. get up and get going.

No laying around for long with him.

He first was up this morning at before 4:00 am and I managed to have him stay in bed until a few minutes later.

Oh, I have not been up since then – I am not that silly.

I do have a great life and am grateful that I can do what needs to be done virtually on my schedule.

That would be on the weekends only.

WORK, is another story.

Nothing seems to go according to plan.

But that is okay.

If everything was scheduled that may eventually be boring.

Okay, I am going now.

Have a wonderful day.

Enjoy the weekend and I hope that you are able to have some down time for yourself.

Even though Alvin sometimes cracks the whip, I manage to have some downtime …..

 

Special Hello to: all those folks out there who have a dog in their household, enjoy.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day…

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 18th day of November, 2013.

Welcome to this day.

Well looks like winter is upon us.

Banks of snow line the fronts of each home in my neighbourhood.

Five weeks to Christmas.

How do you spend the holidays?

I try to celebrate Christmas all year long by being kind and giving.

Somedays I might have a moment or two where I fall short but otherwise I feel good about how I treat others.

You also have to feel good about how you treat yourself.

Because if you do not treat yourself with kindness and giving how can you treat others the same.

So on this Monday …. treat yourself with kindness.

Take a few minutes to meditate and relax.

Take a few minutes to just be still.

I think that is the best advice that you could give to someone.

“Just be still” ….

So much can be accomplished if you take the time to be still.

No thoughts about what to make for supper, or what bills have to be paid or what to buy Johnny for Christmas.

Just let yourself go and breathe.

Go to that place where your mind is quiet.

This takes some time and practice but it is worth it.

I need to do this.

You will be energized and feel great.

So have a good day and try being still.

Take care.

Special Hello to: all those who believe …. it starts with you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
