COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Thursday, July 27, 2017 and it is the 14th day until my 60th Birthday.

Well as I am gearing up for the big day – I am wondering what would be appropriate or good to post today.

Quite frankly, I am running out of thoughts to share.

Maybe it has been the heat, I do not know but please forgive me on this day …..

I will share a couple of photos that make me feel relaxed and calm.

To you on this day.

May you have a wonderful, stress free, joyful day.

 

Is it wrong to post a bowl of cookies here?

But honestly they do make me feel joyful, less stressed and calm (oddly enough).

Always, Carol

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 14th day of November, 2016.

So dark out at 6:00 a.m. – easy to tell the season.

Beautiful day yesterday.

Alvin and I enjoyed a morning walk visiting with neighbours along the way.

Our weather has been absolutely incredible for this time of year.

We had rain Saturday and even into the night.

The grass is green.

On our walk yesterday I noted that the water on our lakes is still flowing no frost in sight.

On the lake were some ducks.

I guess they did not get the memo.

I am pretty certain they normally do not hang around here for the winter.

But Mother Nature has been temporarily tricked.

I hope that they will be safe and “warm.”

Alvin and I had a good weekend.

I spent several hours over Friday and Saturday with my daughter preparing for and then entered in a craft sale.

It was disappointing but at the end of the day it was great to spend the time with my daughter.

I guess we have to determine where and when we want to spend our time.

Our time is more valuable than money.

That goes without saying.

Even though I will be the first to say that without money it is difficult to have stress-free time.

If you cannot pay your bills or buy food – not good.

Sometimes we get in over our heads just to have some of the things that we think we want or need.

That is not good.

But human nature is always wanting.

Thinking we need when it is more like we want.

Well here it is almost time to leave the house for another Monday morning.

I wish you all a wonderful, stress-free, productive Monday.

Think about what it is that you really need and focus on that instead of all the things that you want.

 

Special Hello to: ┬ámy friend “V” who always makes me feel better than I am.

Always, Carol and Alvin
