2021

Good Morning ALL! This morning is crisp but bright and sunny for Wednesday, September 29, 2021. I can hardly believe that October is only a couple of days away. Where has the time gone? Mr. Alvin is impatiently waiting for me downstairs. We had a great sleep, one of few, but oh so, appreciated. I am trying to download photos from my phone to the computer but seems to be taking a long time.

A little while ago just after we got up, Alvin wanted to go outside, so out we went to the backyard. He hesitated by the steps but walked over to the lower end and jumped off. I was going to help him down but he really wants to do things on his own. I can tell. When he wants help he will just bark or wait until I come and help him up or down. Anyway, he was trying to look through the fence and I could see the neighbour’s patio door open so I figured either one of both of Humphrey and Bogart were in the backyard. It was a few minutes later that I realized that Bogart was in fact, in our backyard. He was snuggled beside by pot with the grasses and the upper deck railing …. just staring at us. Alvin had not noticed him. Because Bogart is not as comfortable with Alvin as Humphrey is, I scooped up Alvin in my arms before he noticed him. I even walked toward Bogart so that Alvin could see him but it took a few minutes before he could see him. Alvin desperately wanted to visit but I took him into the house. He definitely misses his friends. Humphrey used to spend a lot of time with us before Bogart came to live with him. Anyway, I grabbed my phone and texted Sonja to let her know that Bogart was in our yard (he has GPS tracking) and snapped a few photos of him. The perfect photo would have been of him snuggled in between the plant pot and the deck railing but of course, he moved by the time I got back out with the camera. I did snap a few photos before Sonja came to take him home.

Well it would appear that the “downloading” may take awhile and I have to run soon before someone wakes up the neighbourhood. We will go for a walk, then coffee and breakfast for me. We are having the furnace and vents cleaned today. So grateful for that.

I am so grateful for this beautiful weather. Bright sunshine and blue skies. The leaves on the trees continue to turn into such a glorious palette of amazing fall colours. I just love fall. Makes me smile and want to dance. I am so happy when I can walk through fallen leaves some crunching beneath my feet and the others flying up into the air as I go. It is the simple things in life that makes us the happiest. Just being in good health. Being able to enjoy a fall day. Listening to the sounds of nature. Walking in nature with your pup. A great cup of coffee. Smiles. Being surrounded by good people. Time. Flowers.

Looks like I am going to have to try later to download/upload those photos. But I will post them. Bogart is so cute. What a big guy.

I hope that on this Wednesday you are enjoying life’s simple pleasures like good health, nature and laughter. Have a great day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
