The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? We are good except! I will tell you in a moment. Beautiful sunrise with dark blue clouds filling the bulk of the sky. Rain clouds? Not sure. But looks pretty nonetheless. Most of the snow has gone leaving behind chunks of ice, gravel/sand, and muck.

Yesterday started out to be a great day and ended with a thump. In the morning we were up early and I finished off some laundry, had a shower and had a quiet morning, just enjoying it all. After lunch I walked over the nearby strip mall and went to Shoppers Drugmart first followed by Save-On Foods. I haven’t walked over to the mall in a long time. The walk was so enjoyable. I was struck by how many folks including myself wore masks and by how many did not. When I was finished purchasing my groceries, I called my friend Gillian to come and pick me up. I noticed that she had called twice. It was so loud in the store that I did not hear my phone which was in my purse. I had used a good old fashioned paper list. She was there in a few minutes and we loaded up her car. My friend had been calling me because she needed to get a few things. So back into the store I went. This time I totally forgot to wear my mask until I saw others with mask and the store was so busy that I decided to put it back on. I was so happy to spend a bit more time with my friend. After she dropped me off, I put the groceries away and Mr. Alvin and I went for a walk. It was so beautiful outside, I only wore a tank top with an elbow length sweater. Once back home, I putzed for a bit before giving Alvin his supper and warming up leftovers for me. I decided that I might as well eat early so I did. After supper and dishes, I went outside with Alvin to see if I could do something to make it less mucky in the grassy area of our backyard. Not a good idea. I did grab a cardboard box from the garage and broke it down. I laid it on the muck and was thinking that at least that way he could take the steps down and walk on the cardboard and then onto the remaining snow and ice. Well, not quite sure what happened but just after I put down the cardboard, I slipped and fell backwards onto the still frozen ground which was covered in a dirty mucky something. I twisted my body as I went down but did not hit my head (good thing). Not happy I muttered something not nice and slowly got up. I was completely soaked and filthy and MAD. Anyway I have to make this short as I slept in this morning. After I got up went into the house, took off my shoes and went upstairs to change. I found that my red tank top under my black sweater was filthy dirty on the back. The only part of my back that was not dirty was my head. Thank goodness. Anyway, I changed and put the laundry in the washer and carried on. I was a bit stiff and sore and that just got worse over the course of the night. I was in a lot of pain as I tried to sleep. Getting off the toilet is not easy. I have taken a couple of Robaxin to help with the muscle pain. My left toes are swollen a bit. No bruising that I have seen. Just incredibly stiff and sore although I believe that the worst is over, thank goodness. Not sure how it happened, I was not being careless. That was the thump to end my beautiful day. LOL.

Well time to go as I need to slowly make my way downstairs to grab my coffee. Yes, I am holding the railing up and down.

Wishing you a great day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
