Second Half 2022

Good Morning All, i hope this finds you well. i had to resort to writing my daily post via my phone due to timing and circumstances. what a night and morning thus far. we had a quiet semi productive Saturday until about 8pm. one of our friends and her daughter came to the door just before I was planning to go for a walk with Alvin. She explained how she had seen a little chihuahua dog go by on the sidewalk with no human. After that people were out looking for him. They went walking and looking and I got Alvin and we went out as well. do many people were out and he was not found. I walked at different times with each of the owners. They were devastated especially one of the young men. I felt do bad. At 10:00 it was getting dark and I had to get home as I had dropped Al at home after a short walk. Signs are up in the neighbourhood, I hope they find the little guy.

So this morning we were up earlier for trip outside and then one hour later for Alvin to eat. Following we hit the sofa for extra zzz’s. we didn’t get up until after 9:00. I thought we should go for a walk before it gets hot.

I got washed and dressed and him ready and on our way. A friend was outside so we stopped to chat for few minutes before continuing on our way. We were almost at the park when Alvin managed to get tinfoil into his mouth. i managed to get it out but I was upset with myself for not picking it up on a previous walk. We continued to walk meeting a woman out with her dog. The dog was gigantic, we chatted for awhile. Dog’s name is Grizzly, appropriate for his size. The pup was just one year old. Owner said pup was very gentle as was noted when he laid down to be at Alvin’s level. I had to come upstairs and go onto the computer as I was having slowdowns on the phone.

Once home I turned on the fans to cool off the house, my neighbour Sonja had asked to use our washer and dryer as they are renovating the basement and cannot use their machines at this time. Just after she left, Alvin wanted a treat so I gave him some of his wet food and then set about to make some coffee as it was after 10:30 by this time (and now it is almost noon) when I turned and noticed that there was a pile of vomit by the fireplace on the floor. I almost started to cry. I have no idea if he actually did manage to swallow a small piece of the foil or if it was the heat or what. I am praying that it was just an one off and that this is not a repeat of last week or an underlying issue. My heart is in my stomach. I have a headache from the stress of it all. On the way back from the park, I stopped and picked up every last little piece of that damn foil and all the time wishing that people wouldn’t throw stuff on the ground and that people would clean up the garbage from their lawns. I also picked up a ice treat wrapped and stick close to our house. Man, people make me mad. What is wrong with people?

Anyway, I need to have something to eat and relax. Get away from this head space. Between the missing pup and Alvin, I am ready to pull the covers up over my head and stay in bed permanently.

Likely not the best thing to do. I will recover as long as Mr. Alvin is okay. Hoping that the little dog is also found in good health. Maybe a good samaritan found him.

Well I have to go. It has been a very trying last few hours. Alvin seems to be okay. I am going to keep positive thoughts and hopefully the Universe will hear them.

I hope that you are having a good day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: Well 16 sleeps till 65. Maybe time to get lost in a movie while drinking coffee.
