Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 14th day of May, 2015.

Well the sun is coming up ….. still a bit on the cool side in the mornings.

I still am wearing a jacket for my walk to the bus stop.

Maybe in a week or so ….. a sweater will do.

This morning I went to retrieve a voicemail message on my home telephone.

The old fashion touch tone portable phone …. I do not have a cell phone yet.

There is static on the other end.

Guess time for new phones.

They sure do not make things like they used to ….. everything is disposable.

Why oh why.

I do know the answer, but really I would love for manufacturers to have love for their products and make with integrity and quality.

It is so disappointing when items do not last.

I remember a deep freezer that my grandparents had on the farm.

It was there when I was a child, and it was moved from the farm to town.

I figured why it was about 30 or so years old.

Stoves and fridges used to last for 25 years or so.

One would tire of them long before they broke down and then most times they could be repaired.

Can you imagine house hold appliances and gadgets lasting that long?

Or at least make things to be repaired and not throw away.

Okay, I have had my little “rant” for the day.

Just disappointed …. I am not mad or sad …. just disappointed.

Well almost time to get back downstairs, grab my lunch and jacket (will need shoes, too) and snuggle with Mr. Alvin for a few minutes before heading off to work.

YAY, tomorrow is my day off and I am so excited.

Have a great great day everyone.

Special Hello to: all those people who take the time to read my blog, I so appreciate it.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 31st and last day of March, 2015.

Crazy – I cannot believe it is the last day of March.

It seems like only yesterday we were bringing in the New Year.

YIKES, which reminds me …. I have not changed my voicemail greeting.

Oh well ….. at least for those who do call and leave a message they will receive a very upbeat greeting.

 

I am so glad today is Tuesday as yesterday I was stuck in some kind of “mad gear.”

I do not not what else to call it.

There was nothing really that happened that was bad or super negative that would drive me to be in that frame of mind.

But I was stuck in that gear all day long ….

Until I got home to the puppies.

Followed by going to Costco with my daughter.

Topped up the evening with GIRL GUIDE COOKIES and a walk with my daughter, the puppies and my neighbour came along.

Thank goodness for puppies, cookies and girls.

The girl guides were next door as we were leaving for our walk …. there be girls … on the lawn …. on the sidewalk ….. cookies in a wagon ….. puppies excited …. my neighbour out to buy cookies.

It was so much fun.

 

Well here we go again time to leave for the office.

The sun is starting to come up …. oh, how I love this time of year.

I am so grateful to have had such a great evening last night.

I hope that you have a great last day of March.

It is promising to be a great one here in Edmonton.

 

Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: YOU …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 2nd day of December, 2014.

Only 23 days till Christmas Eve.

This morning as I was getting ready I realized that I was humming a multitude of different songs from Christmas movies and television shows.

The catchy ones ….

The Grinch

Frosty the Snowman

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

There are so many.

I think that some of the most “catchy” and recognizable songs and definitely ones that withstand the test of time are the movies made mainly for children.

The lyrics are rhythmic and so much fun …. ones that you hum all day long.

I must fit in some of those shows during this hectic holiday season.

Also I just remembered I must change my voicemail message ….

I always put on some Christmas music and play it in the background and then give my annual holiday greeting.

Yup …must do that……

Well I guess it is almost time to leave for work.

Seems like we just got home.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

If you have the chance listen to some of those classic songs …. and instantly a smile will appear on your face.

Special Hello to: lovers of all things Christmas….

Always, Carol and Alvin
