2021

Good Morning All! Another bright sunny morning here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. When Alvin and I were out in the backyard a few minutes ago, I could see my breath. Yikes and it is still August. Does not appear to have frozen but it is rather chilly. As Alvin was busy walking slowly back and forth at the fence (controlled) watching his friends Humphrey and Bogart through the cracks between the fence boards and partially due to the fact that he kept running under the table and there is not the time for games, opted to go for a walk on my first break. It will be warmer as well. What a guy. I’m sitting on the sofa and as he cautiously comes into the living room and I stand he runs back to the safety of the kitchen table as he although likes to walk is not in love with having to put on his harness. So I shall sit here and write while he decides what to do as the clock ticks closer to my work start time.

My daughter and son-in-law took their pups to the new house last night to show them around as they got possession, the keys yesterday. They didn’t get the keys until later in the day so didn’t have time to clean and then move their belongings. But I wanted to share this, the pups, Aspen and Milo had such different reactions to the new house. Milo, the smaller one with the big personality just ran from room to room barely stopping to really look around and then there is Miss Aspen, she very slowly and cautiously moved from room to room with a bit of coaxing. My daughter sent videos and so cute. Wished I could share them. I am excited to see their new place.

I also snapped some boots of my plants yesterday with drops of rain still lingering on their leaves after the rain was over, so pretty. The sunbeams on the flowers priceless.

All I hope for at the end of the day is that the weather holds so I can get Alvin nursed back to good health. Most days he does not limp and others he does, mainly in the morning and after he jumps when I cannot get to him. I will say that the past couple of days for the most part he waits for me to help him up and down. We both cannot wait for this to be over. I doubt that he should be doing too much jumping but it is hard yo 100% stop him unless I block everything off all of the time snd that is not much fun as we have already been down that path. I know patience is a virtue, I’m trying.

Well I guess it is almost that time. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. Tomorrow is another late start day.

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

Love Carol&Alvin

PS: I apologize for any spelling errors or misplaced words, gotta love spellcheck. I don’t get it. The choices. I can spell and type but sometimes odd things come up and if my editing skills are off, yikes.
