2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this fine FOGGY here in Edmonton morning? Alvin and I are doing well although he may say something different as he is squeaking by the office door. He is getting pretty used to me jumping every time he makes a sound. My fault not his. There has been some thick fog out there this morning although it has dissipated somewhat already. I am feeling more back to my old self this morning. It is not the end of the world if we do not go with this roofing company. Sometimes if we get a “bad feeling” or experience doubt it is better to just walk away. Both myself and my neighbour had those feelings. It was not just the feelings it was the information as well. Anyway, we are on the search for another roofing company and we will find the one that is right for us. Right credentials, right products, right price. We will secure the best company for the job and for us.

Yesterday we had quite a lot of rain in the afternoon. Alvin and I managed to get a beautiful walk in over my lunch break. We even saw some of our friends over the course of our walk and stopped for a little chat. We made it back home with minutes to spare so not late for work. My flowers are doing great with all of this moisture, I think that they grew overnight. The front flower bed is coming to life and the colours are beautiful. Even my snapdragons are all starting to come up or at least I believe it is them. I love flowers, the colours and the scents.

Life is continuing along. Not much new. Just chugging along. Experiencing life as I should. Trying to keep the positive thoughts flowing and remembering that “thoughts do in fact become things.” I know this to be true.

I have recently changed my thoughts to ones of retirement, being mortgage free and new shingles on my roof. Likely would be a great idea to make a vision board to help me in my new vision.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Almost time to head downstairs, get on that pot of coffee and put on some music. I love to start my day with music now that I can.

Continuing to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

P.S. one of my neighbours spotted a pelican in one of our park “ponds” / “lakes.” I did not think we had them here in Alberta but apparently we do. I cannot wait until I see one.

It is a NEW YEAR.

Yes, we are well into this new year.

One month over and done.

Now almost one week into February, 2020.

Where are we?

 

Well some folks are vacationing and enjoying life.

Some folks are at home working, waiting for said vacation to arrive.

While others work and never get away on a “tropical” or winter vacation.

Now there are likely a great many folks who never have the luxury of going away on vacation whether it is a winter or summer one.

That is very true.

What percentage of the population has that luxury?

I wonder of the ones that go away how many run up their credit cards in order to do so?

It doesn’t matter where you fit in above, we are all blessed.

I am blessed to live in a nice, no beautiful house, a home with my trusty companion Alvin.

We may not travel far from home but we have our house, our sanctuary.

We have a yard to putz about in the spring and summer and fall.

We could build a snowman on the front yard or the back when the snow is sticky.

I can plant flowers and some vegetables, if I desire.

Having this house is important to me, it is not just a house.

It is my place to relax, to entertain, to live, to grow, to write, to clean and so much more.

 

Sometimes we do not know where life will take us when wherever we are, we can make it our own.

Grab a piece of cardboard or heavy construction paper and make that Vision Board.

Make your dreams come true.

Some may have small dreams and some may have large ones.

But whatever they are ….. you have the ability to make them all come true.

Live in gratitude each and every day.

 

Well, I am thinking that I should go and shovel the front sidewalk before my ride comes.

There is lots of time and then Mr. Alvin will need to go out back.

 

Life always amazes me.

Whether it is work or play, it never ceases to amaze me.

 

Wishing you a great day.

Filled with kindness and respect.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 18th day of October, 2013.

Well here we are again …. the weekend.

Tonight one of the lottery jackpots is $50,000,000.00.

Can you imagine?

I often think of what I would do when I win the lottery.

I know I am going to win …. just a matter of when.

Perhaps I should be making a vision board.

I do make lists of what I would do.

WOW, it would be crazy good to always have more money than you need at any one time.

So make that list.

Create that vision board.

Visualize.

WINNER – WINNER – WINNER – WINNER – WINNER.

Tropical vacation …. Hawaii here we come.

So wonderful …..

I can see myself relaxing on a lounge chair by the water with a big floppy hat on reading a book, mmm.

Well let us all use our imaginations today and start making our dreams come true.

Maybe it is winning the lottery or maybe it is simply being able to go to visit your family who lives faraway.

Whatever it might be ….. we can do it.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: DREAMERS ….. WE ROCK.

Always, Carol and Alvin
