Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! I hope that you are doing great on this Wednesday morning. We are doing very well. Both Alvin and I had a fairly good sleep. I do appreciate when he wakes up for the first time after 4:00 a.m.

Last night I was in a slight panic as I watched the weather forecast stating there could be frost in low lying areas. This was just before we were going to bed. In fact, we were going out for Alvin’s last pee before bedtime. I took all of the remaining flower pots with the exception of the large pot with the tomato plant and either carried the pots into the house or placed them in the garage. The pink flowered Impatiens came in from the front porch and are sitting just inside the door on the entranceway mat. The Calla Lily and the Oregano plants are sitting inside by the back door, not blocking but inside, warm and dry. All of the other plants including the Lavender pots, the Citronella plant, the plant for which I do not remember the name are all in the garage safe from frost. I will take them out at some point today. My house looks like a flower shop. I must admit I do love all of the flowers and greenery. Who am I fooling I have a bunch of flowers and plants already in the house, lol. Anyway, I do love flowers and plants. They make me happy and content (when I am not freaking about the possibility of frost).

Yesterday we had two lovely walks. One at my lunch break and the other after work. The leaves are beginning to turn to different shades of yellow and gold. I do love the colours of “fall” or “autumn.” The word autumn is much more pleasurable than fall. I get where “fall” came from but why! Note to self: must get the tree trimmed this weekend. Saturday, if the weather is nice will be a busy outside day. Finishing off the winterizing of plants, putting away the patio furniture, trimming the tree, washing down the deck, the windows etc. Lots to do.

The sunrise is pretty as it lights up the morning sky in a more subdued palette.

Mr. Alvin is snoring away just outside the office doorway.

I am so excited that the fall shows have started. I watch 9-1-1 last night. Such a good show. The NCIS series are back which is great. I wished that they would have had NCIS Los Angeles in the season opener. I guess I don’t know if they are back for sure but I would hope so. Would be nice to see all three together for an episode or two.

Well time to head downstairs and plug in the coffee. Check the temperature and perhaps move some of the plants back outside. Or they can wait until later when the sun is shining and a bit warmer. Might be a shock for them to go out now.

I hope that you have a great Wednesday.

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

I am very grateful to be working for home on this day.

Thank you for joining me on this blog writing journey.

Always, Carol & Alvin
