The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Friday morning? It is Friday thank goodness. I am ready for a nice quiet weekend. I shovelled about a foot from the deck and out front a little while ago. It just started to snow again. Does that not figure somehow? Oh well, it is March in Western Canada and we usually get snow. At least it is fluffy and easy to shovel so that is a good thing. I was sweeping it from spots on the deck throughout the day and evening. All the snow that melted has now accumulated once again. The rooftops that were bare a few days ago are now covered. The sky is white this morning to match the ground cover. I do love how gloriously white the snow is. Hard to imagine that it is so white. Okay enough about snow.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to mention this or not but I will as it is important. Last night I received a text from one of our friends advising that both of her pups have lice. We were last in contact on Saturday. So I googled dogs and lice. Not very impressive list of things to do. First off, I removed everything -blankets, his sweater, his harness, dog bed covers and put them into a hot washing cycle. Then I took Mr. Alvin up and gave him a bath. Then I took a break and went outside and did some shovelling. Once back in the house the one load of wash was done so I popped in the second set of sheets that I should have washed last weekend but I was busy and decided that I did not need them, who knew. Thankfully this happened after we had an early supper. I washed the towels from his bath. Spent the night with the phone flashlight poring over him looking for something that I did not wish to find. He has not been scratching so hopefully that is a positive sign and I will hold myself to that thought. I will also keep an eye out. So that was my Thursday night. Best part of the evening was shovelling snow, argh.

So morning came extra early this morning as it was quite late or late for us when we got to bed. I had to do a bit of reading before I turned out the lights.

We never know what is going to come our way. I hope that our doggie friends are feeling better – they have medicine and of course, the best parents to look after them. They were doing laundry as well. Our friend got the news as they had taken the pups to the groomers. What a surprise for the groomer although I am sure that happens more times than not. It might explain a lot of things.

I hope that you have a lovely Friday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
