Last Half 2022 – November

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? The sky is a beautiful mix of orange, pink, blue and grey white. Absolutely gorgeous. We had a pretty good sleep but as usual up a few times but that is our lives so that is it. This morning I am going to Costco with one of my girlfriends and then to the Dollar Tree to pick up some bags to put cookies in for Christmas. Only a couple more weekends until Cookie baking time. The days just seem to be flying by but I guess that is nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year. I/we were invited to Pauline and Al’s for supper this evening. I am debating on whether to leave Mr. Alvin home or not. Leaving him alone always gives me feelings of guilt and worry and anxiety. He will be home for a couple of hours this morning and then a few hours tonight. I know he will be okay. The neighbour that looks after him on most of the days that I go back to the office for work is beginning to get more hours at her new job. So there may be days that I have to ask someone ask to come over and check on him. I have to keep in my mind that there will always be someone available to come over but as the days and weeks pass this may be increasingly more difficult. I do not want to go there. Okay, enough. I will always be able to have someone come and check on Mr. Alvin. There will always be a neighbour that can come over.

Yesterday I gave Alvin a haircut and bath, he looks so good. Filled in the rest of the day with laundry, a walk and some tidying up. I will need to clean bathrooms after the shopping trip this morning and hopefully be able to get Mr. Alvin out for a walk. He will definitely need his sweater with his shorter haircut. Also yesterday my daughter put in an order with Costco online for some photo Christmas cards. I gave her some photos and she put them together for us. I am so excited. This will be the first time that I have used photo cards instead of cards with a photo tucked inside. I wanted to do something extra special this year. It will be difficult to decide which to send to who.

Time to head back downstairs and have a coffee or two before Gillian arrives. I am excited to get some shopping done. I added a few things to my small list but it is still not huge.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
