Last Half 2022

Good Morning ALL! I hope that you are doing well this morning! Wow, can you believe that it is Monday, November 21, 2022 today? We had rain before 4:30 this morning. Rain past mid November. That is just very strange. Thankfully I am working from home today. Anyone having to drive, I hold you in my heart and wish you safe travels to work and back home or wherever you may be going.

Well this truly was a weekend of diversions from the “TO DO LIST” but in the end I managed to get most things crossed off/completed. I took this afternoon off from work as Mr. Alvin has his regular 5 week appointment for ears, nail trim and “anal glands.” Thankfully the weather is nice so we should be able to walk there and back. By later this afternoon any ice should have melted. I could not believe that it was +3 degrees at 8:00 o’clock last night. Wow, this weather. Can you imagine if it was like this for Christmas. So much of the snow has melted although the ground still remains with a thick thick blanket but gone are the four foot snow banks. We had a nice walk yesterday afternoon and Alvin enjoyed sniffing along the way. We also visited with neighbours that were out and about on the warm afternoon. One was even putting up outdoor lights. Perfect time to do it. After our walk, I dropped Mr. Alvin off at the house and went over to my friend Gillian’s for a cup of coffee and to pick up the floor mats. Yes, I ordered two more of the floor mats that I had recently purchased from Costco. Reason being is that I have been using my yoga mats on the floor for Mr. Alvin. I really do not want the wear and tear on them plus they look a bit odd. Not that appearances really make a difference to me but this time, they did/do. We had a great visit with her brother making a surprise appearance. I had not seen “D” for a long time. Nice to chat with him. Once back home, I finished upstairs. I had previously gone through both of the bathrooms and cleaned out the cabinets upper and lower. Throwing away unwanted things. Felt so good. I vacuumed. Did some things before making supper for me and Mr. Alvin. After supper I did dishes and then set up my workstation for today.

Well time to head downstairs, back downstairs. I will have a few hours before his appointment this afternoon to clean out some kitchen drawers. Then all of the kitchen drawers and cabinets will have been cleaned/tidied up. I moved some coffee mugs about by putting the Christmas ones in the cupboards where they can be reached when company comes over.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Have an awesome Monday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: Happy Monday!
