Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Overcast skies.

Due in part to rain in the forecast and likely some due to the smoke from the fires up north.

Alvin is resting on his double thick blanket on the floor beside me as I write these words.

When I was a little girl – I dreamed of phones that you could both see and speak to the person on the other end.

Remember I was born in 1957.

These thoughts were not brought on by a television program as we did not watch much television other than Walt Disney on Saturday or Sunday nights.

Too much to do on the farm.

As I got older and saw the way that technology was going – I knew that it would happen in my lifetime.

So today …. I am happy that I can sit in front on my computer and video chat with my sister.

See her in real time.

Hear her voice ….. hear her laughter.

Such an awesome way to connect.

Who would have thought that a person, me, could key the words onto a keyboard and they would appear upon a screen and click on PUBLISH and they would go out to the world.

Certainly not me.

What a life.

I am so glad to be living this life …. now ….. One day at a time.

Has not always been this way.

Seems to be an age thing.

Make the most of each day ….

 

Last night after work Alvin and I went out for our walk.

We were disappointed not to see the geese and those darling baby goslings.

They were likely swimming out of our sight.

We were just walking into the park and going round the bend when I heard “Alvin, Alvin.”

Turned around to see two small boys coming towards us.

One on a bike and the other running and ended up falling.

They were coming down a hill.

Not a big one but a hill all the same.

Neighbour boys were out with the sitter.

They got ahead of her and their smaller brother.

So cute.

They were so excited to see Alvin.

Bike was dropped close by.

Came over and gave him some love.

Alvin is definitely loved by all.

So sweet.

We chatted for awhile …. waiting for their sitter to come.

She must have been quite a distance behind them.

The older boy ran up the hill to the sidewalk to check but did not see them.

I gave them instructions to go straight home and to the younger one to stay on the sidewalk with his brother.

The elder of the two said that they walks him home ….

So off they went and off we went.

 

Well time to fly.

We slept in a bit this morning.

Glad to see brighter sunshine.

 

Have an awesome day.

Living in the moment or one day at a time does not mean that you can not look back from time to time.

Happy Tuesday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
