Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 25th day of May, 2015.

The sun is coming up and forecast is for 25 degrees celsius today.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

Mine was wonderful.

Great company, accomplished many items from my master TO DO LIST and relaxed.

Doesn’t get better than that.

It feels strange ….. I have decided to wear dresses more often.

They are cooler in the warmer weather.

So today is a dress day.

I am so used to wearing pants and capris and shorts that I feel almost naked.

Also this dress is a tad shorter.

My daughter picked me up a couple of cute dresses from a swap she had at work.

They fit perfectly.

It was funny because I had been thinking it would be nice to have a couple dresses for the warmer weather.

Voile they showed up.

In my favourite colours, too.

How is that for “thoughts become things.”

So here we go …. try something a bit new.

Well I am running a couple of minutes later as it took some time to do up the back zipper ….. I must show Alvin how to do up a zipper ….. would that not be a sight.  But should would be nice.

Have an awesome Monday.

Special Hello to: all those people who are trying something new today, you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Tuesday morning!  Another gorgeous day.  We are so blessed.  Take a look around you – all around.  What do you see?  Are you surrounded by people or things or perhaps both?  Do you love everything that envelopes your life?  It is easy to get surrounded by stuff.  Stuff that does absolutely nothing for you ….. it just takes up space.  Space in your house, your life and your thoughts.  I have found that we all at some time or other in our lives ….. felt that we needed those things.  Whether it was due to peer pressure or just because you wanted them. We really have so much.   Recently, I hosted a girl’s night out party which included a swap.  We had everything from jewelry to aprons, purses to coats and everything that a girl might appreciate.  It was so much fun and everyone got things that they wanted and or needed.

Most of us take the time in the spring and fall to do some purging of the closets.  It is a good thing.  I always feel so much lighter afterward.

So take a couple of hours and go through your closets, your drawers …. all over the house.  There will be things of course that are ready to be tossed as they have seen better days and others that can go to another owner who will appreciate them.  Happy cleaning. Giving is an amazing thing.  You must give in order to receive…..

Have an awesome day.


Always, Carol
