Last Half 2022 – August

Good Morning ALL! How are you this gorgeous Friday morning? Alvin and I are well. Just finished having a most refreshing shower, Alvin has had his breakfast and gone outside to do his business and I am writing this post before we head outside for our morning walk. I can hear the hum of traffic on the highway which is a short distance away. The sun is starting to shine with all its’ brilliance, there is a breeze (thankfully) and the sky is a smoky blue colour. I am congested so I am not sure if that is smoke blowing in from fires somewhere? Might be. The house was 75 degrees when I looked at the thermostat and then dropped to 74 at that moment when I was standing there. Never had that happen before. I will take 74 but hopefully we can capture the coolness the way that we did yesterday. Will have to close the blinds and windows before we head downstairs.

Cute story but rather frightening too. Last night I was dreaming. The only things that I remember was that some kind of animal with long sharp horns was coming toward me and I was asking for help. Apparently my first attempts were feeble and quite low as nothing happened but then I shouted in a scared voice at the top of my lungs “help me” and it was not a dream as Alvin literally bolted up from his spot where he had been fast asleep. I scared him so badly that he would not settle down for a good 15 minutes. I had the windows open and luckily no one heard me. Perhaps everyone had their fans on, too. Anyway, I think I know where that dream was hatched from “The Big Bang Theory” as the episode that I was watching before bed was when Sheldon and Raj were in the tunnel at the University and Raj was babbling on about something or other when Sheldon noticed some four legged furry creatures standing on a ledge behind Raj’s head. He screamed and ran up the ladder throwing down the hatch leaving Raj all alone with the you know what. I cannot even say the word. Anyway, pretty sure that did it for me.

We are back to normal now. I did a few things this morning as my brother and his partner Todd are coming to visit us. I cannot wait. They should be here about 2:00 pm or so. We have decided to have a cold supper of sorts with buns, egg salad, veggies, pickles and cold cuts etc and with fruit and macaroons for dessert. I am also excited that my daughter Amanda will be joining us and wished that my son-in-law and grandpups could also be here.

Well time to head downstairs and get on our walk. I will be posting my blog later tomorrow after the company heads out but I will be here.

I hope that you have a great Friday. I can feel the fan blowing from the hallway and the breeze coming in through the office window.

Oh, almost forgot that one of my friends and neighbours down the street joined me and Alvin on the front porch during my lunch break yesterday. She also gave me a belated birthday gift which was a lovely book and a card. This birthday just keeps on giving. I so so grateful. Love books and reading them.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Today is to be 31 degrees celsius.
