Welcome to December 2020

Good Morning ALL. I am so happy that I booked today off as a day of vacation. Starting off lazy and just going slow as it was such a rushed busy but glorious weekend. We were up early but then back for extra zzz’s to the sofa. My ears are plugged this morning which happens to me so will take a shower in a few minutes to see if I can hear again. I can hear the rumbling of the fan and I can hear my voice if I speak …. just did not hear the timer on the microwave when it went off earlier. OH WELL! Yesterday was busy with baking SUGAR COOKIES and icing them, chatting with my youngest brother, attending the LIVE for my Fifth Avenue Jewelry party, walking with Alvin, laundry and cleaning. Today I have lots to do but no absolute schedule other than I have to be at the Vet before 4:00 p.m. I want to pick up food for Alvin, toothpaste, his “glucosamine chews,” and whatever else is on his list and drop off some Christmas treats for Dr. Karen and her staff. So around noon or a bit later I am going to take the baking out of the freezer and fridge and start making up some treat boxes. I have about several people in the neighbourhood that I want to deliver some Christmas Baking to and hopefully can catch everyone at home. It will be something that I have to do by myself as is hard to hold onto a bag full of boxes and Alvin ….. we shall see, I might. Also will be masking up. There is laundry that will be dried in the basement that I have to put away. Bathrooms to be cleaned (they did not get done on the weekend), garbage to put out later as pick up is tomorrow. There is always something to do and that is a good thing. Can you imagine if someone did everything for you and you had nothing to do but to eat and sleep and I guess personal grooming (shower etc). Sounds like being a teenager. LOL. I was one of those once but I had lots of things to do. Everything was not done for me. I am so glad that it was not. We did not have video games and all the technology of today. Different time. Each generation has it’s gains and losses for sure. Well.

The sky appears to be overcast to the south. I have not heard the forecast for today and am hoping another good day for my “deliveries.”

Perhaps I shall have time to figure out why I am not able to add photos to my computer. Time for some new photos. It has been forever since I posted some photos.

From the VAULT – December 21, 2010.

What happened to 2010?

I am so pondering while writing up the letter to be enclosed with my Christmas card about where 2010 went?

It came in quietly, I barely was aware.

It snuggled down tightly and buried within …..

Suddenly March, then April and then June.

But where it did go?

As I watch from above …… July and then August …..

Summer came and summer went.

Autumn well it was spent.

Now it’s December and almost Christmas.

If you are wondering what happened to 2010

You are not alone, I share your sentiments along with another eight billion or so people.

If you noticed at the beginning of this “story” I was drafting my Christmas letter – just so that you know – it did get written and sent.

So from me and Alvin, WE WISH YOU A HAPPY HAPPY CHRISTMAS & ALL THE BEST IN 2011.

May you always be surrounded by a loving family and friends.

May you be in perfect health (focus on good thoughts, they keep the body healthy, too)

May you laugh every single day (even if it is at yourself, because if you cannot laugh at YOU, who can you laugh at?)

May you love and be passionate about all that you do..

May your life be abundant in every single way.

May your gift of smile brighten someone’s day.

May you remember to help those less fortunate.

May you always be the BEST that you can be.

Happy Holidays …..

Always, Carol and a very patient Alvin (sniffing around in the hallway,

************************

Well it is time to hit the shower and get this day back on track. I hope that you are well and enjoying Monday, December 7, 2020. I guess this means we are “17 sleeps” till Christmas EVE DAY.

Be well, continue to live your life with kindness, respect and compassion.

Always, Carol & Alvin
