Thought for the day….

Welcome to Friday, January 4th, 2013 ……

Are you having a great start to the New Year?

My week has been great.

Started out on Monday being New Year’s Eve, then I had New Year’s Day off from the office, worked Wednesday, Thursday and today.

The week was great …. full of pleasant surprises and even found out that I had won a bit of money on the first day back at work.

So that was great …..

Today is the day that I work both job ….. go to the office during the day and work at the store in the evening.

Should be fun.

Well as I am running late ….. had to catch some extra zzzzz’s this morning.

So I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.

Keep the faith.

Keep dreaming.

Thank you for reading my blog.

I am enjoying reading others, as well.

Special Hello: to all my fellow bloggers …. you rock.


Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Welcome to Monday, August 20th, 2012 ….. the sun is starting to rise here in Edmonton.

With promises of a great, great day.

I hope that you all had an awesome weekend.

Mine was fantastic.

Friday I slept in, and then had coffee with my friend G and her boys and two of the kids that she “looks after” ….. it was great.

Then I did some cleaning and the usual …. I mowed my front lawn and two of my neighbours Thursday night so that freed up some time on Friday.

Also picked up Alvin’s food and then bam boom bam it was time to get ready for work at the store.

Saturday I had completely off so spent it working around the house and also picked up the trash from around the neighbourhood.

Only one bag ….. that was the best part.

I ended the day with our walk (me and Alvin) and watching a movie.  Perfect Saturday night.

Yesterday morning, my daughter came for coffee before I went to work. (Alvin spent the day with them).

One of my close by neighbours was having a front lawn sale so we bought some items.

I spent the day at work handing out coupons which is different for me.

Usually I spent my shifts in the Home Fragrance section of the store, and I love it there.

Being out front of the store handing out coupons was great ….. the people.

Wow, the mall was crazy busy yesterday.

There were people everywhere …… some happy and some not, families and not, men and women and children, all nationalities, all fashion styles … it was great.

I love it best when I am surrounded by people …… I greeted everyone with a smile and enthusiasm.  (the coupon was a great offer, if I do say so myself).

So I was busy but I also had a fantastic time.

My house is clean, me and Alvin got lots of exercise, had time to play with Alvin, mow the grass, did some writing, grocery shopping,  and yard work and worked two shifts at the store and cleaned up the neighbourhood.

Man that sounds like I am SUPERWOMAN or something ….. well I am just Carol …..

Well just Carol has to fly as today is my early shift at work ….. so my ride will be here shortly.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Monday …… talk to you tomorrow.

Special Hello to: all those people who are always incredibly busy but still find time for the little things.


Always, Carol and Alvin.
