2021

Good Morning ALL! Well only TWO more sleeps until Christmas EVE Day. Wow, I am excited to see everyone. We are not having a big crowd that is for sure – especially with the latest variance of COVID. I wonder just how many more of these we will have OR if this will be our new norm? Time will tell. All we can do is to be safe and take care of ourselves and each other. If that means being vaccinated, do it. If that means wearing a mask, do it. If that means staying at home, do it. If that means, not travelling, do it.

On the lighter side of things. Last night one of our friends and neighbours popped in to give us a Christmas present. She always thinks of Alvin and brings him some freeze dried liver, which he loves. Arlene did not know that we had a guest and who knew that Cookie liked the FDL, but she did. She tore around the main floor like she had ants in her pants. So excited for company other than me and Alvin? LOL. We had a little visit in the foyer before she left for home. We had a pretty good sleep last night. She is beginning to get used to our home. I am happy to report that she did her business (both) on pee pads this morning. She did not eat much other than one bite this morning. I keep trying and she nibbles. I am not used to a pup that does not eat much. Alvin loves his food and he inhales it.

I noticed that it has been snowing a bit so looks like more shovelling in my future as I want to keep the snow shovelled for our company on Christmas Eve. Now that the days are getting closer to the BIG DAY, I can start to do some things – well not until tomorrow. Like taking some things out of the freezer to thaw, do another load or two of laundry, quick dust and the like.

Yesterday, I wanted to get the mail at my lunch break. I did not know what to do with Cookie knowing if I opened the door she would be out before I could stop her. Only thing I could think of was to put in her the main floor bathroom while I stepped out. It took a few tries because she always got out before I could close the door. Finally success! I already had my coat on and my keys in my pocket, putting on my boots as I got to the door. I was happy to see a mailbox full of more than just flyers and junkmail. I had TEN, yes, TEN, Christmas cards and letters. My heart was full. I love, love, love receiving Christmas cards and letters and even the odd photo. It was so much fun reading each card. Last night I hung them up on the string that I leave up all year long. It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Oh and Miss Cookie survived being in the bathroom for like 5 minutes. She was not happy with me but she was okay.

Well on this Wednesday, December 22, 2021, I say to you – have a wonderful day. May you be surrounded by love and good health. Happy Wednesday.

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

Always, Carol, Alvin and Cookie.

P.S. you never know what life is going to give or bring you!

Things have changed a bit since then!
