Living … One day at a time

Hello,

Good Morning.

Raining outside.

Shout out this morning …. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR SON-IN-LAW.

I am so grateful that he came into our life almost 2 decades ago.

He is smart and funny.

Warm-hearted and the best son-in-law and brother-in-law to Alvin.

Wishing you a great day my boy.

We love you very much.

Wishing only the best in the year(s) ahead.

 

Yesterday morning I snapped these photos of my tree as I was waiting for my carpool.

Bear in mind that it was dark outside.

The leaves are turning but still a great many are green.

The lawn is covered with crunchy gold leaves.

 

 

Last night we had a GREAT walk.

We stopped and visited with our friend who was out in her garden.

Winterizing.

After our visit there we continued walking until we reached Alvin’s BF’s house.

This time I said let’s go and visit.

We walked up …. rather Alvin flew up the steps.

I said as I was going to ring the doorbell …. Alvin why don’t you bark and announce yourself ….. he did.

I was surprised.

I could hear Teddy recognizing who was at the door.

So inside we had a nice chat and visit.

Alvin had some treats.

He is terribly spoiled.

After leaving there we continued on our way home.

We stopped to visit with some new friends.

There was a one year pup named —, oh dear I have forgotten her name ……. she was really well trained.

This pup was a lab and oh how smart they are.

The other was a three year old Basset Hound named FLOUNDER.

Alvin did really well with them as they are bigger.

After watching the Lab pup and Flounder the b hound play we headed home.

Lots of visiting going on.

Then when we were home we saw Humphrey outside.

Chatted with my neighbor for a bit and then Humphrey came to stay with us for a bit.

We were walking into the house and he was on his leash and walked up the steps.

He wanted to come in.

So I yelled back to his Mom that he was with us.

After that I quickly cleaned the front flower bed.

Trimming back the flowers.

Putting the cut stems/leaves into a blue bag and into the garage.

Also decided to clean up part of the deck …. put away a few items.

I put my flowers in the garage as I was worried it may freeze.

They are doing so well.

If we get some sunshine, I will put them back out.

 

Well time to fly here.

We are busy.

Happy Birthday to all those folks celebrating today.

 

If we treat ourselves with kindness and respect it comes naturally to treat others the same.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
