The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Welcome to Friday. We did it! We made it through another week. Fast approaching the weekend. What are your plans? Well I have another busy one ahead. We are starting it off right with a visit after work this afternoon from my daughter, always laundry, lol, Alvin gets a haircut and bath, more cleaning out of the garage to prepare for the June garage sale, house cleaning, going through more things (including the basement) and on Sunday an early birthday party for our friend Gillian. Our other friend in the group Signe is hosting this time round. We generally take turns. I do love to host though but Signe is a great host. Oh and I have to finish putting the birthday present together. I cannot be too clear about anything because G usually reads these posts. I am not going to give anything away. SURPRISE.

This morning it is warm outside but the sky is overcast. There is a breeze. Temperature forecast to be plus 21 degrees celsius. A beautiful day.

Yesterday I went on three walks totally about 1 3/4 hours timewise. A walk at noon with Mr. Alvin and then after work with him. We saw the goslings out with their parents by the lake and I wished that I had my phone/camera with me. Every day they grow so much. At 6:30 p.m., Gillian and I headed out on a beautiful walk. We had such a great chat. So grateful that she invited me along and I cannot wait until I have actual runners or walking shoes. I was walking in my Clark’s “flip flops” which are comfortable for walks with Alvin but for longer walks would be better to have proper support, proper shoes. Another thing on my list. So a good amount of walking and I slept good except for Alvin waking me up but that is nothing new, lol. You know last night was perfect for a wonderful walk with a friend. Thanks Gillian.

I am grateful on this Friday:

To live in Canada, I know we have not always been or are even now, perfect but closer than others.

To have clean drinking water and good food to eat.

To have so many wonderful caring, loving and supportive friends.

To be surrounded by beauty everyday.

To have my darling Mr. Alvin to keep me company each and every day.

To my daughter, son-in-law and grandpups for your kindness and love and support.

To my sister and brothers for being lights in my life.

For every rainbow and every sunbeam.

For love and laughter.

For every creature.

For every flower.

For the smell of perking coffee most especially in the mornings.

For life, for good health and for you, thank you.

Have an awesome Friday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. when nothing is sure everything is possible!
