Last Half 2022 – August

Good Morning ALL! How are you? Alvin and I are doing well. Up and at it at 6:00 a.m. for the third day in a row. Which is good for me. The noise from the highway is so loud, usually it is a hum but today it seems more loud. Not sure why. The sky is that beautiful hue when we transition from night to morning just as the sun is rising. Oh, how I remember when the sun was coming up at what seemed like 4:00 a.m., wasn’t that only last week, lol. There is a breeze this morning which is nice. I have a fan blowing from the hallway by the office door and the window is open with the breeze coming in on my right. Surrounded by coolness, love it. We are in for another hot day, then a bit cooler tomorrow and then warming up again for the weekend. At least summer seems to be holding on for awhile longer. I have said before how much I love the autumn/fall weather and just feel of it all. We can have very comfortable temperatures during that time. Here’s hoping that fall lasts until Christmas. I would love that so much.

Well another day of closing all the windows and the blinds. Mr. Alvin does not really seem to like that as he likes to look out of the window. Poor guy.

There is not too much new in our daily lives and not anything that anyone would be interested in reading about that is for sure. We are carrying on and the main plan is to keep cool during this blast of heat. We are grateful to have cooler temperatures overnight so that one can leave the windows open which nicely cools down the house. Then turn on the fans which makes a huge difference. I am grateful to have the fans. I am grateful that today is August 31, 2022. I am grateful that both Alvin and I are in good health. I am grateful to be alive.

I was watering my flowers last night and noticing how much they have changed in even the last week or so. I think they are tired of the extreme heat. The geraniums are doing pretty good and I want to transplant and winter them in the house again. Actually they started in the house. I love them but there are so many. Note to self, find out methods of wintering that do not require them being transplanted and in my kitchen. I have so many plants and am running out of space. Last year the plants were so huge that they blocked out a lot of light coming in through the kitchen window or at least at the level I am at when I am working at the kitchen table. I will check.

Do you notice when it is hot that you find it difficult to concentrate and have energy? Feel sleepy? I noticed that I really have to focus on whatever I am doing. I have been tired with this heat and not a lot of energy. Most days I have to force myself to get up and do things.

Time to head downstairs and go for our walk. Perhaps we will see Jaime and Sadie. Oh, how I love that Sadie, pup. She is so sweet.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

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

Yes, I will be needing that coffee this morning. LOL.

Happy Day, okay. Everything will work out. I have faith.

Always, Carol & Alvin

    Hi: Mom kept the same geranium since dad passed and she just left it in the pot in the basement and brought it out in spring. Its bloomed every year after that. No need to transplant.
