Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! Another beautiful day on the way. The sun is shining and the sky is that perfect powder blue, there is a breeze and the trees are sparkling in the rays of the sun. Oh, how I love Nature. She is glorious. Beautiful and Wondrous.

Well yesterday went okay. I was concerned that Alvin did not drink water before I left for work but my neighbour Sonja to the rescue she came over three times ensuring that he drank water, peed and had a little treat and some snuggles. I thank whomever is watching over us everyday for the wonderful people that surround me and help me to live my life. Because after all, it really does take a village. No one human is an island. We all need someone or multiple someones. He was over the moon happy to see me. The construction held us up a bit but made it home before 6:00 p.m. Well before he needed his medication. He had his breakfast at 6:00 so having his supper around 6:00 p.m. was perfect. Once again, I am so very grateful for all the Sonja’s in my life. I have the best friends and neighbours in the world. My, our family has been so supportive now and always. I am grateful for them.

Work, so it was okay. I was concerned that my tag would not let me into the building as I had some issues with it the last time that I was at the office. But it worked. I entered a dark building which was kind of freaky. There should be some lighting. It took me a few minutes to get to the lights. Then I unpacked my laptop and few items that I brought from home. Had some coffee and then a couple of staff arrived. One being my direct coworker. We had a chat about work (nothing personal). Then it was too work. I found that I have got so used to no arms on my chair that I kept hitting my elbows again the arms, kind of annoying but oh well. There were a few things that I am realizing will have to be changed as they are not comfortable. But that can be done. Working from the office back to the disruptions and distractions and noise. Oh, how I missed being at home. My daughter drove me to work and home. She works until 4:30 so I just hung around inside the office chatting with a couple of staff that were “done” but just tidying up. I had no desire to wait outside. Our downtown area is not safe at the best of times. So inside I stayed until she pulled up out front. I love the drives with her. We chat about everything. It seems to be our catch up time.

I think that we have lost the art of conversation. Chatting about the little things like maybe “where did you get that nail polish from” OR “did you notice all of the robins in the neighbourhood” OR “did you see the sunset last night.” We are so caught up in the major “dramas” in our life that the little things slip away, fall to the wayside. No time for them when we are trying to do what is expected or needs to be done. Anyway, it would be nice to have a conversation about good things, nice things, loving things and stay away from the drama. We all need to vent, I certainly get that as I do that just like the rest of the human population. Back to living in the moment. Keeping positive. Even the way we talk affects our minutes, our hours and our days on this planet. How about when the Universe seems to be giving up that little nudge, or that kick in the butt – we listen and take action. I just realized that with these recent changes that I am not listening and I need to listen. Remember your dreams. If we just sit back and let the things that we tolerate or do just because we feel there is no choice and let our dreams just be that, dreams , then we will never move forward and realize them. Nothing is perfect, for sure. But if I have learned anything in the last few weeks, months and years – if you are not happy doing something and excited to get out of bed in the morning – then you are not living your best life. Sometimes the first step is the hardest. I believe in you and me and all of us. We can do anything. WE CAN.

On that note, time to head downstairs and get that coffee plugged in, I know that I would love a cup of coffee. Time to get this life full of happiness once again. Forget just settling.

Have a glorious day!

Sunshine and rainbows.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
