Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 9th day of March, 2016.

I thought for a different twist on my “thought for the day” that I would go back to this day last year and see what was going on.

It is great having this daily blog because I can go back yesterday, six months or several years and see how I was feeling and what was happening at that point in time.

It is a good way to gage how things have/are progressing in your life.

So this is from March 9th last year ….. it was a Monday ….. this year it is a Wednesday due to leap year.


Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 9th day of March, 2015.

WOW, seems like I was right in the middle of a dream when I heard this loud buzzing near my head.

In less than a nanosecond I realized it was the alarm and alas the dream was then over.

I do not remember much about it other than it was a good one.

Perhaps I will be able to pick up where I left off tonight when I close my eyes and approach dreamland.

I dreamt that I received a letter stating that my mortgage was paid in full.

Nice dream, right?

That is a good positive thought.

Nice to visualize “no more mortgage.”

Well almost time to go to work …

Somehow the morning got away on me.

I hope that you have a great Monday.

Keep happy thoughts floating around your mind …..

We shall keep on this positive trail together.

Sometimes it may not be so easy but we can do it.

Take Care.

Thanks for reading.

Special Hello to: family and friends, today.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S.  … Alvin asked to get up on my lap this morning (in his own way) … I love to cuddle with me Alvin …..


Well things have not changed so much ….. still dreaming of no mortgage …. perhaps that has to change somewhat.

I am still keeping more positive thoughts than not.

Life is not so much different than one year ago.

Have a great day.

Thanks for reading.

Special Hello to: of course you my fellow Earthling.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S.  funny thing is … Alvin did want up but just didn’t get that far ….. he is a funny guy.

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 2nd day of December, 2015.

It is an absolutely beautiful morning here in Edmonton …. warm temperatures.

I do not know what it is outside but it felt warm on my face when I was out with Mr. Alvin earlier ….

How are you this morning?

Thinking about life?

Thinking about time?

Thinking about December?

Yes, me too.

I am thinking that it is a gorgeous morning.

I am thinking that my life is pretty great.

I am thinking that wow I am 58 and it is December 2, 2015.

I am thinking that wow December already time to finish those cards and get baking.

Lots to think about.

Always good to take a few minutes here and there to reflect on things.

Perhaps change up your dreams.

Write that list ….

Mix things up.

I guess that is my thought for the day ….

“Mix things up.”

Even though change scares the pants off of me …. I do love change.

Maybe it is the fear that drives the love, I do not know but it works.

Perhaps it is that way for most folks …. you have to be scared in the beginning to find the love.

I guess it could be true for most things in life.

Well I spent one two many minutes on FB this morning.

I have changed up our schedule due in part to the recent visitors and hopefully that is the last of them …. I hope that they went south.

Today I am going to mix things up …. just a little.

It does not have to be radical change …. just move things around …..

Last night as I was getting ready for bed … I realized that I must have over 15 perfumes from Bath & Body Works ….. definitely more than 15.

So I am taking them to work.  Most of them have been sprayed once or twice.

Might as well let someone else enjoy them, right?

So this is mixing it up so to speak.

Moving things out so that you can bring something in.

I am perhaps babbling as it is now time to hit the shower …

Time always flies by in the morning …..

I will do better with something over the course of the day …. change wise.  I promise.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Special Hello to: my baby sister ….. Hello …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 9th day of January, 2014.

Another gorgeous day….. temperatures on the rise.  YAY.

I believe that the “topic” of friends/friendship deserves a few editions on “Thought for the day…”

Friends are those special people or animals that light the flame in your heart, and make you feel warm and wonderful.

They are there to listen, to give advice, to lend a helping hand, to see things that might not be obvious to you.

They laugh with you, they cry with you and jump for joy with you.

They are mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, grandparents …. they all fall into one or more of those roles.

They are your friends.

If you are lucky enough to have friends then you are truly blessed.

You must remember to be there for them, as well.

Friendship is a two way street.

It is important to always give more than you receive.

I am truly blessed to have so many friends and each friendship is unique and special.

I believe that people come and go during your lifetime …. some they go because they move or because they pass on.

But each friendship is there for a reason.

They come at that time …. when needed the most either for yourself or for them.

Some are forever …. others are not.

If you sit and think about it you will notice that each time a friendship has been forged during your life ….. it has been for a reason.

Perhaps you met someone on a trip …. you just clicked …. you love to laugh …..

Perhaps your parents had friends who had children ….. you became friends when small, and remained that way your whole life.

Perhaps it was a four-legged furry little guy,  that graced your life with a friendship that you wanted to last forever.

So many variables.

Something to ponder for sure.

Happy Friend’s Day.

I love my friends.

Special Hello to: my childhood friend “D” who is always in my thoughts …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
