The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you on this rainy Friday, May 6th morning? We are doing well. Yes, I said rainy and looks like the forecast is for mainly raining days for the next week including this weekend. So that changes my trash pick up tomorrow. Oh well. Once it dries out again, I will get out there and clean up my hood. I can see the buds on the trees out of my office window as they sway back and forth in the morning breeze. The sky is a deep grey with pockets of white clouds. Beautiful.

Yesterday was an odd day as I took the afternoon off for Alvin’s vet appointment. Unfortunately there is no other way other than to take 1/2 day vacation when I have to take him to the vet but that extra time turned into this. Just as I was ending my work day yesterday, my phone rang and I picked up my phone to see it was our friend Iris (Alvin’s best friend Teddy’s Mom). I said hello, she said we are in town and was wondering if we could get together, I literally screamed “YES.” How about your perfect timing. They had not been planning to be back in the city so soon and then Alvin’s appointment was not until 3:30 and it was 12:20 at this time. We decided as she had her lunch in the oven that it would be better if we went over there so that we would have some real time to visit and then she invited me for lunch. Alvin as you know has been in an odd frame of mind. So I finished off what I was working on (work) and shut of the computer and got ready for us to walk to their house. Alvin sniffed and walked along not in any particular hurry which is not him when he knows Teddy is in town. When we got to the park there was a single goose sitting on the grass only a few feet from the sidewalk. Mr. Alvin starting walking toward the goose, the goose hissed and I pulled him back quickly. The last time he walked toward a goose was when he was a puppy. Odd. Who knows what he was thinking or not? When we got to Teddy’s house he did run across the driveway and up the steps and sniffed at the door. I rang the doorbell and could hear Iris tell the pups “wonder who that is at the door, lol.” Door opens and Teddy and Kobi are so excited – Alvin is happy but not as much as usual. Anyway we had a great visit and he settled in and loosened up. I think he has been a bit depressed. We had made plans for the pups to come over after supper and then Iris was free, too. So we had another visit. It was wonderful. Kobi was sitting on her hind legs looking out of our living room and then she put her paws on the window sill and sat on her bum. So cute.

Alvin’s appointment went well, only nail trim. A $25.00 vet visit. I don’t think that I have ever had a bill that low and was very grateful.

It was a great afternoon and evening.

Lots of walking yesterday in the +22 degree celsius weather.

We may not get too many walks in over the next week. I hope that there are breaks in the rain. But it is dry so moisture at this time is well received.

Time to head downstairs. I hope that you have a wonderful day.

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

“Every next minute is filled with possibilities if we focus and have gratitude.”

Always, Carol & Alvin
