Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 12th day of January, 2015.

WOW ….. almost my youngest brother’s 50th Birthday ….. it is tomorrow.

I cannot believe it.

Time flies.

Yesterday he was a baby…..

Or so it seems.


Yesterday one of my co-workers from the store had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her.

She is a great lady …..


You never know what the day will bring ….

I had one customer yesterday who was very mean to me.

I was only doing my job.

I hope that she realized this at some point.

Another customer even pointed out her rudeness.

Life is too short …

Just be kind.

We are all just trying to make our way.

We are all just trying to make a living.

Be kind to those dear souls working in retail.

It is not “easy” work ……


I hope that you all have a wonderful Monday.

Special Hello to: my friend “B” from the store ….. hope you are well soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 1st day of August, 2014.

My first full day of vacation.

I was able to sleep in for a while this morning and that was nice.

Now to mow the back lawn and then give Mr Alvin a hair cut …. it is so necessary and then a bath.

The sun is shining.

Despite all the speed bumps on the road for our family these past few days we will endure.

We have our health and are together.

I am bound and determined to keep positive and find the silver lining in each situation.

I am grateful that we are all together.

I am grateful that we are in good health.

I am grateful that there is food in the fridge and that we have a fridge.

I am grateful for the walks I had last night with the puppies.

I am grateful for today, tomorrow and yesterday.

I am grateful for my life and yours.

I am grateful that we have each other.

Happy August 1st.

Happy Vacation to Me.

Now back to work…… mmmmmm

Special Hello to: everyone who is taking a break from work …. enjoy.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 24th day of June, 2014.

Bright, sunny with a bit of a breeze.

Just enough to make it comfortable to be outside for any length of time.

Well looks like I am home today as I had an unexpected trip to the dentist yesterday afternoon.

Had some work done and with the after care no way to go to work.

They told me to “watch television and rest” ……..

I guess that is good but I have so much to do.

The appointment kind of put a damper on my plans yesterday …..

Oh well, what can you do.

Perhaps me and Alvin will go for a little walk before it gets too warm.

Then I will just do the “after care” and rest.

Not everyday you get instructions to rest.

Kind of nice for a change.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful day and remember to take time for yourself.

Special Hello to: all those people who work hard and put themselves second ….. put yourself first ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Fantastic Friday Morning …… Hello Everyone….

Today is my niece Dee’s (Dara’s) 27th Birthday, and I want to WISH her the most amazing, awesome, great, wonderful DAY.

It seems like only yesterday that she was born.

She was my first niece, and will always hold a special place in my heart.

This young woman is soft-spoken but can certainly hold her own when she has to.

She has a heart of gold (which runs in our family)   ……

She is smart, witty and funny.

She is a superb Mom and Wife, Daughter, Sister, Niece and Friend.

At 27 she is going back to school (upgrading) so that she can become a nurse.

She works full-time, too.

How wonderful is that!

I am so incredibly proud of her.

I really could write for hours about this girl, this woman but I shall keep it short and sweet.

On this day ….. let’s tip our hats or lift our hands high into the air to WISH DARA …


Happy Birthday My Girl.

May your light continue to shine down upon this earth.

May your blessings be too many to count.

May your days be filled with love and laughter.

May abundance be all around you.

May your dreams all come true.

Special Hello: DARA, DARA, DARA, DARA …….. Happy Birthday….

Always, Carol
