Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 20th day of December, 2017.

WOW, one more day until WINTER is official.

Then the daylight hours begin to get longer.

It will be nice to at least leave work in the daylight and not in the dark.

Tonight Alvin and I are hosting one of our friends.

Our friend who grows the most amazing garden of flowers.

Their yard always looks so beautiful.

We are excited for her visit.

She is the gal that I went shopping with on Sunday that insisted on buying us the turkey.

Yes, turkey is back on the menu.

That is okay.

I love turkey.


At this time of year, we begin to reflect of the year that has almost passed.

Did we accomplish everything that we wanted to do?

Did we meet new people?

Did we laugh enough?

Did we eat enough green vegetables?

Were we good to our family and friends?

Did we visit everyone enough?

Did we help our neighbours?

Did we …. could we ….. should we ….

Always lots of questions?

One important question?

Did you take time for YOU?

Are you well rested?

Are you happy?

Are you okay with you?

So many questions.

At the end of the day …… be kind to yourself and you will be kind to others.


Have a great Wednesday.

Gotta run.

Breathe ….. I know this time of year ….. is BUSY.

But there is always a few minutes to sit quietly somewhere and be quiet.

Just breathe.


Special Hello to: You, my friend.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Thursday Morning and today is the last day of May 2012, the 31st.

I love this time of year …. spring turning into summer.

Just a few weeks and it is officially summer.

We tend to take license and start doing summer things while we are officially still in spring …. before the first actual day of summer.

But that is okay …. we just want to enjoy the weather and the time.

So on this gorgeous spring almost summer day ….. I hope that you are smiling and laughing and having a grand time.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing …. make sure that you take a few moments/minutes to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer….. the sunrise, the clear blue sky, the trees, the green grass, ladybugs.

Just enjoy.  It is a fantastic day….. full of promise.

If you are unsure of what to enjoy first …. may I make a suggestion?  Remove your shoes or flip flops and walk in your bare feet on the grass. I can feel it now.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to:  all those people walking around in bare feet on the grass…..


Always, Carol and Alvin.
