Second Half of the NEW YEAR – last quarter

Good Morning All. A much more quiet morning than yesterday’s. We had Teddy and his little sister Kobie here overnight on Friday as you know, and they went home about 5 p.m. yesterday. I always enjoy when the pups arrive at the house. Iris can put Teddy down on the sidewalk and he makes a beeline for our house and Kobie she has to hold securely and carry to the house. There is a feeling of excitement when they arrive. Alvin comes to life and well me, I love seeing them. Kobie wanted up. I picked her up and she just gazed into my eyes. She has the most gorgeous dark eyes with long lashes. As she looked in my eyes she put her nose right up to mine. Makes you feel liked you are the most special human in the world. Teddy was so excited to see his buddy Alvin and Alvin in return. Their Mum stayed for a visit before leaving as it was getting late (actually past our bedtime but it was a Friday night so that was okay).

We slept on the sofa Friday night. I was drenched in furbabies. Teddy curled up behind my knees, Alvin beside me on the pillow and Kobie basically on my head (she curled up on top of the pillow). I sure wished that I could have had taken a photo of that night time set up. Now it did not remain that way and there were lots of movement over the course of the night mostly from Alvin. I forgot to take the chew treat away from him, the ones that Teddy’s Mom had given them upon their arrival. Argh, it was up and down and down and up. Anyway we survived and with no defined time to get up we did sleep in a bit later, thank goodness. I do enjoy having the pups here. Alvin loves having them here although I will say this when we were having a sit down on the sofa yesterday afternoon both Kobie and Teddy were someone sitting on my lap and started to wrestle/play and at times would go back and forth on the sofa running on or over Alvin ….. that Mr. Alvin did not even flinch if it was Teddy who walked/jumped over him but when it was Teddy ….. he growled. Funny. The pups usually have a hard core play/wrestle match for about twenty minutes each day. Good exercise for sure. Most times the playing takes place on the floor.

Meal time is always interesting. Alvin is what I have deemed the “FOOD MONSTER” as he will eat almost anything, anywhere at anytime. Teddy could care less. He is a bit on the fussy side and seldom eats breakfast although he does like to chew on Alvin’s hard food and will usually eat some supper. Kobie is sort of like Alvin but not as hard core. She ate some breakfast and will eat supper. Last night I had just set up the feeding arrangement for supper when Iris arrived to picked them up. Alvin of course, gobbled his food down just as she got to the door and the other two ….. we decided to pack it up and they would have it at home. Like I said ….. food time in this house ….. with Alvin …. is you cannot get his food out fast enough. He does chew his food but eats so fast. Sometimes I like to feed him by hand to slow that process somewhat.

After the pups left for home …. our normal quiet takes over. I decided that I was going to check the ON DEMAND movie schedule to see if the new Kathie Lee Gifford movie “Then Came You” with Craig Ferguson was there yet. I was so pleased to see it on the listing. I have been waiting forever and hopeful it would come to Canada. Of course, after supper and clean up ….. we, well I watched her movie. It was so well done. Not often the lead characters are over 55. Elizabeth Hurley and Ford Kiernan were also in the movie. I really enjoyed Ford’s character. The movie ran the gamut of emotions but mostly it was funny. The chemistry between Kathie Lee and Craig is so evident and makes for a great movie. The music was great as well as was written by KLG and her writing partner Brett James. They even had a scene where they sang in the movie. Well done KLG, well done.

Well now it is Sunday morning. Today is the birthday of the gal that I used to carpool with so I must send her birthday wishes. Happy Birthday Candie. Hard to believe that I used to see her almost everyday and now have not seen her for months. Funny how life can change so quickly.

The girls are coming for coffee …. cannot wait. Have to jump into the shower first …..

I hope that you are doing great. Living with kindness and respect, that is the best. The sun is rising and the sky is that most beautiful pink orange at the horizon gradually turning to blue. Today is Sunday. YAY.

Happy Sunday.

I/We shall remain, As Alway, Carol & Alvin

P.S. Six sleeps until Halloween and seven sleeps until CHRISTMAS TREE GOES UP ….. I am shouting that in my mind ….. cannot wait. I will have to check and see if my daughter can help me erect the tree. I do need help setting it up …..
