Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 10th day of November, 2016.

Happy Birthday to my brother who rests with the angels, he would have been 53 today.

Gone but not forgotten.

 

The mornings are now dark until I am at work.

It is dark now as I walk home from the bus after work.

Up in the dark and down in the dark.

It is that time of year.

Our walk last night was so beautiful.

I wore a long sleeved t-shirt and a vest instead of a jacket and was plenty warm.

 

Perhaps you are feeling a little blah today with everything that is going on around the world and in your life.

Here is something to think about or ponder.

Hope is what separates us from every other living creature on this planet, and our ability to accessorize.

Perhaps we are not the most intelligent creatures on the planet but we are hopeful.

( I used “ability to accessorize” from part of a line from one of my all-time favourite movies “Steel Magnolias” ).

So no matter what is going on around you just remember there is always hope, always.

As long as human beings inhabit this planet there will always be hope.

It is what gets us out of bed in the morning.

It is what gives us the drive to do better.

It is what gives us a reason to live.

 

Have a great Thursday.

Special Hello to: my friends back home.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. so excited for Saturday as my daughter and I are taking our Dear Stella Jewellery inventory to a craft sale.

Thought for the day…

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 31st day of October, 2013.

The last day of the month and Halloween.

Last night was beautiful.

Alvin and I had another wonderful walk.

I figured out my Halloween costume and will wear it to wear to work.

I have this long pink satin bridesmaid dress from the 80’s that I thought I would use as my base.

Now it has been almost thirty years since I work that dress and I could tell by looking at it that my waistline has grown a tad since then as well as my “—–” (I would rather not say and to call them by … well you know what I mean).

I figured if I could hike the dress over my shapely hips I would have it made.

I was so fortunate to be able to do just that, and then it was almost on.

OMG, there was no way on this earth that I could ever do up the zipper so I figured that I would just wear a vest over top and it works.

Kind of reminiscent of back in the day ….. except it would have had laces, and forced the small waistline back or squeezed the breathe out of me.

Top off with a killer mask (the fancy kind that one would wear to a masquerade ball – some black booties – some sparkling “diamonds” (not real) and a black table cloth that doubles as a shawl.

It just works……

I am excited.

For several years, I have found my costume by looking through things that I have in my closet or in a storage container.

With that and a little imagination.

I will post a photo later.

So Happy Halloween everyone.

I hope that you have a great day.

I am excited to see Mr. Alvin’s reaction as he loves all of the attention.

Special Hello to: TRICK OR TREATERS … be safe and smart and have fun.

Always, Carol and Alvin
