Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 11th day of November, 2017.

Today as we should every day think of those brave women and men who gave up their lives for our freedoms.

Not only to keep us safe but so that we have a multitude of FREEDOMS.

Freedom of speech.

Freedom to practice one’s religion or not.

Freedom to be who we are free from persecution.

Freedom to live, love and play.

We thank them with who we are and with what we do each day.

By working, by contributing to society and by being good citizens of this country and of the world.

Thank you.

 

Today is the birthday of my very special nephew “T” …… he has a warm, soft heart and I love him.

I have known him since his Mom, my friend had him growing in her tummy.

Happy Birthday buddy and I hope that you have a special, special day.

I will be calling you today ……

 

Alvin and I are puppy sitting shortly so have to get ready.

 

Let us all take us some today to be grateful for all that we have and for all that we are ….

If it were not for the bravery of others we would not enjoy what most of us take for granted today.

 

Have a great Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: my nephew “T.”  Happy Birthday

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of May, 2015.

The sun is coming up with promises of a lovely day.

Well last night was “bootcamp”  …… my mind keeps saying you are young and “can do this” and my body says “wait a minute.”

We did circuits ….. OMG.

Oh the YING and YANG of it.

But I survived and I will admit, yes being honest here.

There were a couple of exercises okay maybe three that I modified as I did not feel that I could pull them off just yet.

But the thing is …. I am trying.

I want to get back into shape ….. have a toned tummy.

I want to know that I have a core and it is doing what it is supposed to do.

Not to find out after doing a class filled with exercises for the core that I pulled a stomach muscle(s) and had a hard time getting in and out of bed.

So lesson learned I do the class at my pace but building it up every time I go.

One of these days I will be able to do what the 30 somethings are doing.

I will continue to walk every night with Alvin and on the weekends double time.

I am going to start doing yoga on a regular basis as I have found that I am not very flexible.

Well it is time to finish getting ready for work but I just wanted to let you know that it is never too late to get your body into shape.

It will take time and patience and hard work but we can do it.

I want to have a flater tummy …… bye bye love handles.

They are not very “lovely” to me.

Time to fly.

Have a great day.

Remember walk when you can ….. do some squats ….. something but get moving.

We sit way too much ….. I know that I do.

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

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of March, 2015.

Ah, our poor Elton is feeling under the weather.

He had his Momma up throughout the night …. sick to his tummy.

We hope that he will be okay.

His Poppa will stay home with him.

 

Very windy overnight and this morning …..

Snowing ……

 

What a Monday morning.

I had better get going as it is just we girls driving.

Have a great Monday everyone.

 

Special Hello to: all parents out there … whether two-legged or four-legged babies …. they are matter.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
