Thought for the day….

Good Wednesday Morning and Welcome to the 8th day of May 2013.

Wow, where does the time go?

It seems like it was just Sunday and my wonderful nephew was here to have a visit before going to work.


Do you think about time?

Does it seem like the day starts and ends before you truly get anything accomplished?

Does it seems like one morning you were 16 and the very next day when you got out of bed you were 55?

Does it seem like one morning it was Friday and then it was Friday again the following week?


I would like to bottle time.

Wouldn’t that be great and then you could just have a sip when you wanted to extend your day or some event.

I guess that would be too crazy.


But as we all get older ( I know lots of you are young, and don’t think about this quite yet ), but time does seem to zing by.


Don’t sit on the sofa thinking about what could have been.

Don’t wallow in the “I didn’t get everything done today.” stuff.

Cause it is not worth it.

Just have fun …. enjoy every moment you can …. take the ball and sink a basket ….

Well here it is time to go to work.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day ….. make sure that after supper you go for a walk.

Enjoying nature always makes me feel wonderful and the exercise doesn’t hurt either.


Special Hello to:  my friends all over the world.


ALL ways ….  Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day…..

Well, GOOD MORNING ALL and WELCOME TO MONDAY, September 17th, 2012.

How are you this morning?  I hope that you are feeling great and ready to get this day started.

I had a great weekend.

Friday, I spent most of the afternoon in my office going through stuff …… and I am “proud” to say that for as much as I accomplished there is still lots to do.

But that is okay….. I set up another desk (table like) so it extends my regular desk and shuffled my book cases around so now the room looks twice as big.

If you walked into this room you would think that I am done but I have several containers in the closet and in the spare room to go through.

But one day at a time.  It will get done …. and having it done perfectly all at once sometimes is not possible, and that is okay.


I am grateful for the beautiful weather this weekend and that I was able to spend some time outside.

Yesterday, I cut the front and back lawns …. (including two of my neighbours as we take turns).

The grass out front was not very long.

I am grateful that my daughter was able to come over for coffee, and share her latest photo shoot stories as well as work on our Dear Stella photos.

We posted some new jewelry and have already sold two pieces, YAY for us.

I am grateful for the walk last night with Alvin and for a visit and walk with one of the neighbours down the street that also has a cock spaniel.

Their dog is not social with any other dog except he has taken a shine to Alvin.  They told me that other dogs seem to aggressive.

So isn’t that great for Mr. Alvin …… my kind and gentle spirit.  He is such a wonderful guy.

Well today is the day that I start work a 1/2 hour early …. so I have to run.

I hope that you have a great day ….

I am grateful that I was able to share this time with you all.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all those people who rescue animals and people …. you ROCK and we are grateful.  Be safe.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin
