Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 16th day of April, 2018.

Well just over half way through the month of April, 2018.

First quarter of the year has absolutely zipped by.

The sky is overcast as I look out of our office window.

There was/is snow in our weather forecast for today and part of tomorrow.

Time will tell.

I took this day as a vacation day.

Plans changed but it is nice to be at home.

I am going to concentrate on writing today.

I wrote some lyrics last night after being inspired by the ACM Awards (American Country Music).

You never know when or where inspiration will appear.

Most times for me it is just as I am about to turn out the lights at bedtime.

Likely not the best timing.

Also early in the morning.


Yesterday a friend/coworker let me know about a Calendar/Photo Contest for your pets.

So I am going to enter Mr. Alvin’s photos.

You are allowed to enter three.

I went through my photos on the computer and picked the ones that I thought were the best of the best.

I think that he has a great chance.

He has one Calendar under his “belt” so to speak.

The deadline is the end of May, 2018.

So lots of time.


Well time to get going and get dressed.

Still in pyjamas.

There is laundry to put away, coffee to drink, Alvin’s little parcels outside from earlier this morning to pick up.

Lots of time to relax and write.

Gotta love vacation.


Special Hello to: my friends and family all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin





Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 24th day of October, 2013.

What would appear to be on most everyone’s radar these days is money.

It would seem by comments from most people these days that everyone is looking for ways to make extra cash.

So, I am offering the question.

How do people go about making extra money?

What if you work full-time but it isn’t quite enough?

What if you want to do something from home?

So other than getting a part-time job which by the way I know so many folks who are working both full and part time jobs.

What do you do?

Perhaps you are passionate about something and could offer lessons about your craft?

Perhaps you could make things and sell them?

Maybe you are an excellent baker and could sell your baked goods.

There are lots of ideas out there.

How do we go about helping people find a way to make extra cash without having to leave their homes?

Is there a way to make money from writing a blog?

Perhaps you can write song lyrics?

So where do you start?

Thank you in advance.

I hope that you are all having a most enjoyable day.

Special Hello: to all those idea creators out there ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

My Favourite Things …..MOST FAV ONE!

As I sit here at the computer this fine Sunday, I am reminded that one of my most favourite things in the whole wide world is: WRITING.

I love to write.  It is my passion.  It is my dream.

I love to write stories, poetry, verses for cards, essays, speeches, and song lyrics.

I love to write on sunny days and cloudy days.

I love to write when I am over the moon, happy.

I love to write when I am sitting in an airport.

I love to write when I am in bed.

I love to write whenever the mood strikes me.

I love to write about my family and friends.

I love to write about the weather.

I love to write about Alvin (I really love to write about Alvin).

I love to write about flowers.

I love to write about lawn mowers.

I love to rhyme, and keep the flow in time.

I love to write about the sun, the moon and the stars.

I love to write about my feelings.

I love to write about –  anything.

Yes, writing is one of my most favourite things.

I love the freedom it brings.

I love thinking of words.

I love combinations of words.

I love WORDS.

Words can take you away to sunny sandy shores.

They can whisper “sweet nothings” and make your imagination soar.

They make you laugh and make you cry.

Writing is my passion, it is my favourite thing to do.

Always, Carol
