2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you on this fine Sunday morning? Alvin and I are doing well. Went to bed a bit early for a Saturday night before 9:30, the boy slept until I believe it was around 4:00 and then we were up at 7:00. Now that would have been a great time to get up and start the day but I just felt like snuggling on the sofa with Alvin. I feel asleep and the next thing I knew it was almost 9:00. WOW. I was grateful for the extra sleep. Nice to wake up to bright sunshine. Another windy day but perhaps it will subside. I am not sure why it is so windy in Edmonton. Is there an actual reason or just because? Yesterday we had an awesome day, up and did most of the things that I had planned to do, had a nice walk with Alvin and one of my friends that lives nearby came over for a deck visit. Oh it was so wonderful. I made coffee and we sat and chattered away for about two hours. By the time we finished up it was almost time to feed Mr. Alvin (4:20 p.m.). What a great day. Work and Play. Does not get much better than that for sure. I am grateful to my friend for coming to add some “play” to my day. Thanks “G.” I have one more load of laundry – Alvin’s blankets to wash and then continuing on the washing of my daughter’s baby/little girl clothings and baby blankets. I am removing the chemical smell from them. It is taking a few washings of each load but it is working. I then want to snap photos of each item so that my daughter has them. Will perhaps get them printed into a book for her. That way if she chooses not to keep them, she has a photo as a reminder. I am thinking that she will keep the special blankets. The clothing is in mint condition and I am sure that some little girls out there would like to wear some of the items. Most little girls clothing does not change much over the decades. Also was thinking that I should be deleting photos from my computer as I have them backed up with a company that I am paying for to do so. Makes sense to get them off the computer. Perhaps not all but a good portion. I am still going through my phone as well deleting duplicate and poor shots. Why is it so difficult to keep up and to do this. This is high on my TO DO LIST to accomplish before the end of the summer. Likely should have been doing during the winter but that did not happen so summer it will be. If I just spend one hour each day doing this ….. it would get done. Perhaps from now on, one hour before we would go to bed, we could come upstairs and I could work on it otherwise get up earlier and do it in the morning. Either would work. I need to get it done. It is much easier to keep putting it off until you can no longer. I am quite certain it is the 40,000 some odd photos on my computer that is slowing it down. I would be slow if I had that many photos in my memory. Whoops, of course I have that many and more and perhaps that is why I am so slow some days, lol. Oh well.

I watched part of one of my all time favourite movies “Black Panther” last night. It was on television so I set the PVR and recorded it so that I can keep watching it over and over and over again. Love that movie. So we will be watching from the beginning this evening my favourite movie. It is three hours long with commercials.

Time to get this day rolling. Mr. Alvin is being extra patient this morning. Lucky Momma. My flowers are looking beautiful and I am over the moon full of gratitude that they survived our recent “late spring storm” and look forward to enjoying them until September or so. I must make a note of spending more time on the deck. Taking my coffee breaks on the deck during the week would be a great idea. At lunchtime we go for walks.

Life is great. I am so grateful for each and every moment. Even the ones on the sofa like this morning where I had the oddest dreams with family that I have not seem for a long time. It was great.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin
