2021

Good Morning ALL! First thing, this morning. BIRTHDAY WISHES going out to my son, my son-in-law Steven. Happy Birthday. Wishing you a great day and may the days and years ahead be filled with great joy, good health, much love and laughter and abundance. Alvin and I won’t be able to spend time with him on his birthday for the first time in many years so we shall miss seeing him but we are so looking forward to spending a few days with the family at Thanksgiving at their new home. It will be great.

We had a pretty good sleep last night on the sofa. Only up at 2:00 a.m. (although I am pretty sure Alvin wanted up at other times but either I coaxed him to lay down or I did not hear him) and then up at 6:00 a.m., which was spectacular. So happy. Much better way to start the day.

As I looked out the living room window earlier I realized that most of the trees had virtually gone from green to gold and reds overnight or at least it sure seemed that way. So pretty but most of the green has slipped away for another year. The vibrant golds and reds are a good way to bring in the following season which hopefully is several weeks or even a couple of months away. December would be good. In Canada, you never know when that “season” will arrive …. never according to the official date that is for sure.

Thursday night we visited our friend Pauline. Her beautiful yard. Doesn’t even matter that it is almost the end of September. The flowers are still absolutely beautiful. Colours so vibrant. My happy place. Both Alvin and I could just lay on the grass forever and be perfectly happy and content.

Friday night “Paint Night” with the girls. We had so much fun. I even had a drink and I don’t mean coffee. We laughed and painted and painted and laughed. Here are some of our paintings over the course of the evening.

We have had a glorious last few days. I know that Alvin was not out with me for the paint night but we did enjoy another walk with Pauline and Georgie. Yesterday about 4:45 p.m., the phone rang and it was Pauline. They were going to be busy for the next few days so she wondered if me and Alvin would like to go for a longer walk with her and Georgie. I thought that Alvin was up for a longer walk. It was glorious we even saw folks we had not seen in months and had a quick catch up. Met a new pup Daisy and her Mom Ashley. I was so happy to see Miss Sadie and her Mom and Sister. It was great. Alvin had no problems and was happy to be out sniffing in new places. Places that we had not been to in a long time.

Well time to get going and plug in that coffee pot. Time for coffee and then breakfast. I am going to work a bit on the yard but I was thinking that maybe I would leave the plants for a bit longer. I just cannot pull them when they are blooming. Just not right.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
