Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of June, 2016.

It is a gorgeous bright and sunny morning here in Edmonton.

Elton arrived about 45 minutes ago to spend day two with his Grandma and Alvin.

We enjoyed a REALLY quiet relaxing day at our house.


Today is the day to get some work done.

Laundry and Alvin’s hair cut are the two big jobs of the day.

Always love the hair cut days ( just a little ).


I have been reading and re-reading about the power of INTENTION.

So I am going to make a habit of practicing being intentional.

My intentions for this day is to feel great and to know that great things are about to happen to us.

I have a great life and it is going to get even better.

Sunnier days ahead.


Well time to get that laundry going.

Time to grab a cup of coffee that is ready and waiting.

Time to cuddle with my boys, Elton and Alvin for a bit.


It feels like an amazing day already.

I hope you have a really great day.

Fill it with intentions.

Intend for your day to be great and it will.


Special Hello to: to all my friends who take the time to ready my blog ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 24th day of February, 2015.

It was a lovely bright sunny and warm day in Edmonton yesterday.

Today will  be a bit cooler and possibly snow.

It is late winter – early spring.

That’s our weather.

It changes faster than we can change our socks.

But alas it makes for great conversation.

That is something we North Americans like to chat about all day long.

Whether it is around the water cooler or on a coffee or lunch break …

While sitting on the bus going to and from work.

While waiting in line at the grocery store.

We discuss how much snow we got, how much rain.

Who had the most.

Who did the  most shovelling.

No matter where we are it is the one thing that brings us all together …. a common thread.

Because no matter where you live on this planet there is weather.

There are rain storms, snow storms, ice storm, dust storms and sand storms.

There are hot sunny days.

There are below cold days.

There is every type of weather imaginable.

Mother Nature PMS …. ing.

Smiling all the while…..

Anyway no matter what it always give us food for conversation.

I love that we have less than perfect weather because we appreciate the warm sunny days all the more.

So when you are gathered around the coffee bar enjoying that cup of coffee and discussing just how cold it is … remember there is someone around the corner discussing just how hot it is…..

Enjoy your day and your conversation.

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

You are my sunshine ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
