Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 7th day of July, 2014.

It is a pure “light” blue sunny sky here from my home in Edmonton, Alberta.

There is a nice breeze keeping the early morning hours – cool.

All of this week the forecast is in the high 20’s – celsius that is.

Yesterday morning when my daughter came to pick me up for work (so lucky she drove me to and from the store yesterday).

She found just comfortably attached to my front door wreath another one of the biggest dragonflies I have ever seen.

I did not notice them to be so big years ago but the last two or three they are huge.

We snapped some photos for you to see.

Are not dragonflies the coolest insect on the planet.

They are my favourite.

Every time that I see one I feel so blessed and lucky.

It is like they draw positive energy into my body.

Just make me feel so good.

It seems that for the past three years one of them has always landed on the front wreath just waiting for me to come and snap a photo.

So on this gorgeous Monday I hope that you are feeling great as well.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello to: everyone who loves dragonflies.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday, the 31st and last day of August, 2013.

Last night it rained after we were in bed.

This morning bright blue and sunny sky.

Such a great way to start the weekend.

This is a long weekend in Alberta and in Canada.

“Labour Day”

The long weekend is usually only a day off for those people working in offices and for some businesses.

If you are in retail or work in a hospital or are a fireman or policeman then you are working.

I am working tomorrow and on Monday at the store.

West Edmonton Mall brings in people from all over the world.

Monday will likely be busy at the store.

It is always fun working there with people from all over Alberta and actually the world stopping by to see us.

Well Amanda should be here for coffee right away and I am yearning for a cup right about now.

So have a great weekend and I will be back tomorrow.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all those people in retail …… you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin



Thought for the day…..

Well, Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, March 1st, 2013.

I usually do not write on my blog on my day off from the office but today is different.

As I look out my office window the sky is beginning to lighten with the sun starting to peek through the cloud cover.

I read a couple of my fellow blogger’s “blogs” …… we all have unique and wonderful stories and thoughts.

It is so great that we have this forum to share our lives.

We can learn and grow from all of this information and gain such incredible knowledge.

Thank you to everyone who reads my blogs – you make my day – you make my life so rich.

I am so grateful to have this day off and to tackle some of my “jobs”  before going to work at the store tonight.

As I listen to some of the songs that I purchased from the I TUNES store I am enriched by the words …. and the music.

Thank you to all those musicians ….. song writers …. our talent on this earth is so vast.

Have a great day.

I am going to read something each of you today …. thank you.

Peace Out …. Love Forever.

Special Hello: to all my fellow bloggers … you rock.  I love your stories.


Always, Carol and Alvin
