Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 7th day of March, 2019.

YAY, another walk under our belts so to speak.

OMG, longest COLDEST winter in decades.

Last night there was a breeze that blew us around our walk and I felt the cold but Alvin all snug in his winter coat did not seem to feel it.

I guess the gust were more at my level, thankfully.

Another warmer day that the past few weeks on the way.

It has been cooling down at night but warming during the day.

We are so grateful.

 

About a week ago, the alarm clock that I had in the bedroom died a somewhat painful death as it would beep, flash and then work for a bit longer.

Poor thing did not want to give up.

It was not long after that that the battery died in my TIMEX Indiglo watch so that leaves us getting up on our own accord.

Now Mr. Alvin is known to be an early riser, more like middle of the night riser and for that matter I am starting to wake about 3:00 a.m.

Monday and Tuesday nights we had Humphrey over so we were in bed later than usual and then last night we hit the hay a bit earlier than usual.

So guess who woke up at 1:00 a.m. …… not me.

I managed to get him to settle back down for a few minutes but alas we were up and downstairs.

He went outside to pee (wished that he could use the indoor plumbing).

Then to the sofa for some sleep.

We were up another time or two but managed to get some good sleep before getting up to start our day.

 

Oh what crazy lives we lead.

I am so excited when I look out at the office window to see lightness in the eastern sky.

Looks so beautiful.

Dark blue running down to meet hints of yellow on the horizon.

I could lay on the ground and look at the sky all day and all night.

I love the morning and night sky the most.

 

If you are over the age of 50 you will appreciate the “getting up in the middle of the night.”

I am most grateful to be turning 62 this August.

I still cannot believe that I am 61, although my body reminds me on a regular basis.

My mind on the other hand keeps me somewhere in my 30’s with a smidgen of 50’s thrown into the mix.

I am most blessed to have friends and family of all ages.

Everyday I learn something new.

BRAINPOWER.

Keeping it real.

Or something.

 

Well time to hit the road ….. gotta pay the mortgage.

Although winning the group lotto at work this Friday would be GREAT.

NO MORTGAGE ….. perhaps a CAR…….can you imagine me with wheels of my own??

Yes, I can.

A girl can dream.

Have a wonderful Thursday.

 

Happy Thursday.

Special Hello to: my sister who keeps me younger …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 21st day of February, 2014.

Today is my Grandma Stella’s Birthday ….. she was born in 1901 and she would have been 113 today.

Isn’t that crazy ….. I wished that she was still here.

She was a unique and special person ….. she lived her life to her own “beat.”

Happy Birthday Grandma wherever you are …..

 

Sometimes when I wake up I feel very reflective.

Other times I am thinking of what is going to happen.

I am thinking “WINNING THE LOTTERY” …..

The jackpot is $50 MILLION and our group at work has a ticket.

It is about time that a group won again.

We sure could do lots of amazing things with that much.

It would be about $3.3 million each.

WOW, WOW, and WOW.

Doing my happy dance ….. 🙂

 

I am so blessed in my life and the money would just be the icing on the cake.

To have financial freedom.

 

So on this fearless Friday I am dreaming of the big win.

I am visualizing and feeling great.

Thank you Universe.

 

You know what at the end of the day –  I have already won big.

I have the best puppy dog a gal would ever ask for and the “best” daughter.

I have a great son-in-law and the cutest grand-puppies.

I have my OWN house ( I have always wanted my own place with a yard for flowers).

I have a rocking wonderful sister and two crazy good brothers.

Lots of nieces and nephews and cousins.

I have more friends than a person should be blessed to have ….

I am in great health.

I love my life.

 

There you  have it ….. I have WON big ……

I am so grateful.

Have the best day everyone.

Dream big and follow your heart.

 

Special Hello to: my family who are my support and my loves – you are my dream come true.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin …. my main “dog” ….
