Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 29th day of May, 2017.

Wow, what a glorious weekend.

There was time to socialize with family, friends and co-workers.

There was time to do some yard work.

There was time to relax.

Best Weekend Award.

Received email from my sister with details of trip to see me.

She is coming in August.

YAY.

I am feeling very lucky, grateful and blessed at this moment.

Alvin is laying on his belly just outside the office door looking at me as he always does.

Oh, me Alvin.

We had walks with friends this weekend and extra visits as well.

Both of us had a great weekend.

Although when he was alone during my visit to the ZOO – he may not agree with me.

So on this sunny Monday morning …… feel the gratitude.

Write it down.

Some days you may feel as though you do not have much to be grateful for but trust me everyone does …… there is a silver lining in each moment of our lives.

Sometimes you may just have to look for it.

Well time to put on the final touches (shoes) and go catch the bus to work.

I have packed some disposable non-latex gloves and a plastic bag so that I can pick up the trash on the walk way on my way home tonight.

There was quite a few coffee cups and McDonalds dishes laying about and I did not have a chance to go over the weekend.

Prepared I will be today.

Happy Monday.

Happy Monday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. cannot wait for you to arrive.  I have not told Alvin or he would be waiting at the window for you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 20th day of July, 2016.

It is overcast which is an understatement because there be RAIN CLOUDS bringing us moisture as I type these words.

Despite not going to bed until after 11:00 p.m. last night and listening to the thunder roar and the lightning flashing I feel pretty awake.

My daughter picked me up from work yesterday afternoon and was able to stop and pick up my friend along the way.

So it worked out perfectly.

I love company.

She came bearing gifts of some extra special treats some edible and some not.

So I feel very special and so grateful at this moment.

We had a nice supper last night and visited.

We went for a walk with Alvin and visited.

We sat out on the deck and visited.

Such an awesome Tuesday evening.

This morning my kids are picking me up and Elton will be spending the day with Alvin.

So everyone has company.

So hot and humid last night and also this morning.

Funny how that whole humidity and temperature thing works.

I feel a bit warm at the moment.

The air conditioner ran most of last night to catch up to the change in the temperature as I had to turn it down (too hot in here).

Well the kids will be here shortly and I have to put the finishing touches on getting ready.

So excited to have some company for the next few days.

She will visit with her family during the day and then with me at night.

So perfect.

I hope that wherever you are and whatever you are doing that sunshine and rainbows follow you.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Special Hello to: my friends and family all over the world.  Thanks sis, we will.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 14th day of February, 2015.

It is VALENTINE’s DAY and also the BIRTHDAY of my son-in-law’s sister “H” ……

Seems like there are so many Birthdays this month.

There were at least three people with birthdays this month at the office.

My sister’s birthday.

I have several friends with birthdays this month.

I have two nephews with birthdays in February.

A BUSY Month for sure.

Last night on my way home from work there was freezing rain which was followed by white fluffy snow.

What a combination.

I have some photos to share.

 

I would like to take this time to wish every single living breathing creature on this planet a “Happy Heart’s Day.”

May your life be filled with kindness and respect, warmth and safety.

I believe that every living creature deserves the opportunity to live in peaceful, loving surroundings.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day to me Alvin …… the guy who makes my heart go pitter patter …..

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Daughter ….. my first born who makes the stars shine in my sky …..

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Sister and  Brothers ….. to whom my life has meaning …….

Happy Valentine’s Day to my family …. who keep me grounded and loved……

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Friends ….. you all give me strength to start a new day ……

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Son-in-law …… who gives me a new perspective on life ……

Happy Valentine’s Day to You …. you give me joy …..

 

Special Hello: to each and everyone on this beautiful sunny day ….. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Last Saturday two ravens flew onto our street.  They were the size of a small dog.  Thank goodness there were no little ones outside.

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 12th day of January, 2014.

What a great day …. SUN IS RISING AND THE SKY IS CLEAR.

It always makes me feel so ENERGIZED and HAPPY.

It is surprising what a good shot of VITAMIN D …. NATURE’s FINEST …. SUNSHINE can do.

I had a wonderful Saturday ….. two visits from my daughter and then after supper two of my friends ( sisters ), and their doggie “ABI” (Alvin’s girlfriend) came for a visit.

How blessed am I?

VERY.

The icing on the cake ….

In less than 15 minutes I am to SKYPE with my beloved sister.

A perfect end to a wonderful weekend.

I am working today at noon so I am very happy to have the time to visit with my sister via SKYPE.

I hope that this weekend found you surrounded by good friends and family, of course.

So I am off to chat with my sister and enjoy a cup of coffee before toddling off to work.

Enjoy your Sunday wherever you are and whatever you are doing …..

Special Hello to: ALL MY FRIENDS ALL OVER THE WORLD …. I am nothing without you.  Blessed, thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
