Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning,

Well we are closing the gap on the middle of November, 2019.

In less than 2 weeks it will be one month until Christmas Day.

 

Another year to reflect upon.

I am so excited for 2020.

Not that I am wishing the days away or anything like that but I am looking forward to the New Year.

In this moment, Alvin is resting on his blue blanket as I click away on the keyboard.

In this moment, I am awake perhaps not 100% rested but I am awake.

In this moment, I am dressed and ready to set upon this day.

In this moment, I am happy to be writing these words.

In this moment, I am happy to be me.

 

We were so blessed to have a nice walk, our regular walk, last night.

The sidewalks were wet mostly but not icy.

Such a relief.

Yesterday we had plus temperatures here in Edmonton and that is the forecast for today.

We were mostly alone as we walked.

It was dark by the time that I caught the bus home from work, looked after Alvin, changed my clothes and then headed out for our walk.

The sun sets mighty early these days.

Thankfully it was not pitch black out and of course living in the city there are lights.

In places around the lake the street lamps are a bit too far apart for my liking.

I understand why but still ….

Alvin wanted to turn around and go home a few times as we walked in the park in the darkness.

I told him “not to worry and that I would keep him safe.”

Poor boy.

In his older age he is not as brave and fearless as he once was.

Although most days when he hops across the threshold to go in or out; you would never know that he is coming eleven years old in January 2020.

 

Well as the seconds pass here it is becoming closer to our time to go downstairs.

Finish the last minute items.

Grabbing my lunch.

Going outside with Alvin and picking up any little bundles he left out there for me.

Then donning the boots, the coat, scarf and mitts.

So grateful that the weather is staying warm.

Grateful for the little layer of crusty snow covering the ice.

 

Be careful out there.

Happy Wednesday.

 

If we spread kindness with respect all day long ….. the world will be a better place.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
