Second Half of the NEW YEAR – last quarter.

Good Morning All. Well it is much later than usual for me/us to rise for the day but that is okay because it is Sunday. The sun is rising and erasing the night sky. It is kind of overcast out there and definitely felt cooler than yesterday morning about the same time. Yesterday ended up being an different day according to my plans. Teddy’s Mom texted to see if we wanted to go over for a visit. So how can we turn down an invitation to socialize with friends, cannot be done. Besides we are very mindful of the rules. I will call them rules. Rules are put into place for a reason and in this case a very good one. I got some cleaning and laundry done before we headed out for a walk and a visit. The puppies Teddy and Kobi are always so happy to see us. I love how Kobi will stand up on her hind legs and place her front paws on my lap and then just look at me almost waiting for me to bend down and get really close to her face. SO cute. She will just gaze intently into my eyes and then lick my nose. I love them. Teddy always has to sit on my lap and have a few minutes of snuggles with “Aunt Carol.” Iris is a generous kind being. She reminds me of a real life “Mrs. Klaus,” so kind and sweet. Our visit was great. During the visit – Iris who happens to be an “Energy Healer” gave Mr. Alvin a session. So happy for that. She was able to clear out some old dead energy that had been blocking him since he was a puppy. At one point early on, his eyes got very bright ….. like a fog had been lifted and even the white fur around his “mouth” got more white. You had to see it to believe it – it is the truth. I was so excited. When we were dressing to leave, she asked me not to put on his sweater as it would cover the old energy still leaving his body and then to wash his harness. It is liken to just having a bath and putting on your dirty clothes. Alvin virtually ran home. He was definitely full of energy. Once home, I made sure to place his sweater and harness into the next load of laundry. Last night I finished the laundry, worked on my craft project (yes, I did), made some energy bites and a few other things. Just before bed I watched an interview via INSTAGRAM between Katie Couric and a young woman named “Robyn.” I hope that I remembered the spelling of her name. I have always like Katie as we are the same age, both born in 1957. Her birthday is in January and mine in August. We both have daughters, she has two and I have one. She has Molner and I have Mr. Alvin. Now just recently, I think it was at the office that one of the “younger staff” after I had given them a Christmas Card had thought Alvin was a my husband as I signed the card “Carol & Alvin.” I guess likely anyone who did not know us, me well might think that. I thought it was cute. Trust me most days he feels like a very needy husband although I am pretty sure that husbands don’t need the door opened to go outside to pee. Although you never know. Anyway I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Katie and Robyn speaking and the fact that they had “dressed up” and the difference between a 63 year old’s dressing up and a thirty something’s. One with a wrap and evening gown and the other with a leather jacket, dressy top and leggings (I think). The younger one quickly grabbed an evening gown and put it over top of her clothing minus the leather jacket. I haven’t laughed as much as I did listening and watching these two women. Robyn is a comedienne who recently made it to “fame” after one video went viral. Bedtime was very late last night.

Plans changed for today. My daughter was going to come for a visit but will be coming tomorrow instead which is fine. I am just happy to see her whenever it is possible. In about one hour a gal from work is stopping by to pick up her tea order. So I had better get this show on the road, er I sure say that alot, don’t I ? Then we will go for a walk and then I will give the boy, Mr. Alvin a haircut and bath. Later I will work on the craft project. There are a few little things that I have to finish up like bringing up the laundry that is drying on racks in the basement, emptying the dishwasher, washing the main floor – floor. That kind of stuff.

I hope / I wish you all a great Sunday. Please check out that INSTAGRAM interview with Katie Couric and Robyn, You will be happy that you did. Take the time to do something nice for someone. Yesterday I delivered a Christmas Card and photo of us to a family down the street. I had tried to deliver another day but no one was home except for the doggies and trust me they wanted to get that door opened. I received a text from the Mom (the sitter was there when I dropped off the card) this morning to say thank you so much for the card and photo. They have three little boys. The middle son most especially loves Mr. Alvin and he was so happy to have a photo with Alvin in it. That warms my heart. Made my Sunday morning reading those words.

Well time to fly. Need COFFEE now.

Be safe and well and happy. May you spend some time today in laughter. Laughter is truly the best medicine.

Happy Sunday.

Living this life with kindness and respect.

Always, Carol & Alvin
