2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you doing today, this morning? It is still morning. The sunrise is beautiful and the sky is clear. We should have a sunny day ahead. We were up and down this morning so I am off to a little late of a start. I think that perhaps Mr. Alvin has another ear infection or at the very least his paws are bothering him. He has been thrashing his head about and usually that means his ears are bothering him. I am congested so cannot smell anything out of the ordinary. Poor boy. I have to get the flashlight out and look inside his ears as I cannot see properly without that extra beam of light. I hope that it is not an infection. He seems to be prone to them. Fingers crossed. My head is a bit achy and I am pretty sure that is due to dehydration as I have not drank much water since last night so I am working on a large glass as I write these words. We do not always realize how important keeping hydrated is until things go wrong. Like headaches, dizziness, etc.

So it is once again the weekend. Again, laundry and cleaning the house. We will get out for a walk in the afternoon. I have changed the bedding on our bed already so at least I feel like I have done something. OMG, why do I always feel guilty about not getting up at the crack of dawn? Not like there is anyone else in the household to complain or place guilt upon me. Human nature, in part, I suppose. Most of that guilt is always self imposed as I put so much pressure on myself to be almost “super human, a superwoman.” One would think at 63 that I would be over that but I guess not. Oh well, every day is a new day and I always try better and part of that is doing better for myself. So to myself – it is okay. Okay to sleep a bit later on the weekends, especially in the winter time when it remains dark later. It is okay not to be “perfect.” Sometimes I think that we should remove that words from our language and from the dictionary.

Work is back to be busy, busy once again and no longer am I caught up on mail. That always adds a bit of stress. But I remain within the acceptable outstanding mail amount so really I should be easier on myself.

Last night my daughter stopped by after work, where she is busy accepting applications for the municipal election to be held in the fall. She brought the package with my new bras and socks. So happy to see her and to have new bras. Mine were beginning to look like they had been dragged around in the mud, lol. Why is it that underwear are the last items of clothing or articles to be replaced? Out of sight out of mind? Anyway I am glad to have some new ones. Last night I was doing a little happy dance. As she said her goodbyes to Alvin, he had that look of panic in his eyes. He always thinks that he has to go with her in the car. What a guy.

Also last night I decided to order pizza for supper. Not sure if that was a great idea or not but I am helping to support a local business and in these times that is important. They always make great pizza.

Well from lack of sleep to lots of work to pizza to new bras, it has been quite the week. But I am always grateful to be working from home, to have the money to order pizza once in awhile, to purchase new bras and for any sleep that I am able to get.

Happy Saturday Everyone. I hope that you have an awesome day. Whoa, the sun just started to SHINE. It is going to be a great day. Time for a quick shower. Also I am chatting with a good friend from Regina as it was her birthday this week and we have to catch up.

Living our lives with kindness, respect and compassion.

Always, Carol & Alvin
