2021

Good Morning All! It is a frosty window here in Edmonton. There remain many trees in our neighbourhood that are full with leaves. The sun is shining in a full clear blue sky. A beautiful fall morning. I took an extra day of vacation to make this an extra long weekend. Just chilling on the sofa with Mr. Alvin. I am trying a Mary Kay facial mask. Feels good. The coffee has finished perking and not quite sure if I can drink with this mask on. it is not your typical clay mask but rather a mask filled with good things for your face. You remove each mesh side and then lay the mask which has holes cut out for your eyes, nose and eyes. Then you lay on your face and press in place. Feels great.I will report back later with name and results.

I am so grateful to have this extra day to finish up things before back to work. Some time for self pampering which is the facial mask. I do not often take the time to pamper myself like having a soaking bath, facial mask, feet soaking etc. But when I thought about it just after I washed my face and got dressed – it felt like the time. So here I am sitting on the sofa with a mask doing its’ job softening and treating my skin while writing this post. Sometimes you just have to take time and do something extra for yourself. Might have been better if I had been laying on my bed relaxing but that okay. Better than not at all. Take the time. When I was listening briefly to the news a little while ago and heard that 90 year old William Shatner is going into space. Maybe only for 13 minutes but he is still doing it. I feel at 64 that I should be doing more and maybe this was the kick in the pants that I need.

Okay almost time to remove the mask and have coffee.

Remember to take time for you and not just sitting on the sofa watching television.

Have a great Tuesday.

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

Always, love Carol&Alvin
