2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you today? I am well but certainly could have done with a bit more sleep. Bed early and then up a couple of hours later up and then back to bed upstairs, then up and down from about 4:00 a.m. until I finally gave up and got up for the day. Anyway, that is my life for now. I have to get used to it.

Yesterday when I wrote my post, I had no idea that it was International Women’s Day. Isn’t every day Women’s Day? Should be really. Cheers to the women of this planet, to all the girls, to we females. Thank you for birthing the children of this planet. Thank you for looking after the children. Thank you for preparing meals. Thank you for your contributions to society. Thank you for caring. Thank you for homeschooling the children. Thank you for aiming for the stars. Thank you for every job that you do whether at home or to support your family. Thank you for never giving up. Thank you for everything you do. This list is incomplete as we do so much. But it is early in the morning and I am writing and thinking and also did not get a full night’s sleep. I appreciate everything that the women have done before me, now and in the future. We rock. Some day things will be more equal. I am certain of that.

Also it is Pet Week. Well there is a lot to be said for our beloved pets. They come in all sizes and packages. Some are furry with four legs, some chirp and some have scales. To all those folks out there who hold their pets in high regard, thank you so much. We owe animals so much and often times we push them aside or do horrible things to them. I am grateful, even though I am sleep deprived at the moment for my friend and companion Mr. Alvin. He brings me great joy, comfort, laughter, love, compassion, gratitude and so much more. Cheers Alvin and to all our Pets. Thank you for being you. Please treat your pets with kindness and respect and love. The world would be a much better place if we treated all of its’ inhabitants with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

The sky is overcast. We had some snow yesterday. I am grateful for snow as it helped me catch that Mr. Alvin had some serious health issues.

Well time to go and plug in the coffee pot. Love that first morning cup of coffee.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion and ever working on the patience factor.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. if you have not watched the series “OUR PLANET” on Netflix, please watch it. I learned so much and it is a reminder about the environment, animals, us and our world. There is drama, love stories, action, comedy included. Check it out. The colours are incredible. The photography was amazing and breathtaking.
