2021

Good Morning All! How are you this Wednesday morning? Alvin and I were up late as it was so hot in the house last night. Needless to say we couldn’t settle down to sleep very quickly. Also I could not stop the thoughts from pouring into my head. That was last night and this is today. The house did cool down somewhat as the outside temperature dipped to about 17 degrees Celsius last night. Because of timing and this beautiful morning we are comfortably sitting on the love seat on the deck. Yup, you guessed it I am writing my blog using my phone and with one finger. Actually I started to use my phone a few days ago as Alvin just cannot bear for me to be upstairs without him. So here we are. It is absolutely gorgeous out here. I have 18 minutes till work starts for me.

Yesterday, with my late work start we sat out on the deck for quite a long while enjoying the flowers, the birds, the cool air, the sounds of life outside our estate. To me, this is our estate, our sanctuary, our place, our home.

I’m going to share more flower photos because they make me happy and I hope they will brighten yours as well.

I hope you have a great day.

Plus couple of others of Alvin and me.

well almost time to head back inside. Wished I would have moved faster and had my coffee outside, perhaps again tomorrow. The a/c is getting serviced today so we shall sleep well tonight.

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

Always Carol&Alvin

2021

Good Morning All! Well my boy sure has had some challenges in the last six months or the first half of 2021. Let’s hope that the second half of 2021 is more kind to my little guy.

it has been interesting adjusting to this new norm. I feel like we are living in a two room apartment with access to another floor to get dressed and do my blog. I am grateful that we have a main floor bathroom. Alvin does not like staying in his little gated area by the front door while I go into hyperdrive doing whatever I need to do upstairs.

He is semi adjusting to my lifting him up from the sofa to the floor and visa versa and up and down the steps to the grass area. The grass was beginning to be green again after the rain but after one hot day it is looking a bit brown.

We definitely have to work on his staying on the main floor while I slip upstairs as he is in his gated area while I am getting ready and typing this post and he is BARKING. OMG, I pray that he calms down over the next few months.

My flowers appear to be peaking and are so pretty. I hope they last till September.

I guess lifting him up snd down will build up my arm strength and maybe more muscle, lol.

I feel so bad for Alvin. Cannot imagine the pain ge is experiencing. Thank goodness for pain meds. Poor guy has bouts of gas and poor Momma when downwind to that smell. I shall miss the fragrance of the roses near the park as it Will beautiful long time before we are walking again.

For the next two and a half months we are housebound. I’m going to have to incorporate some exercise into my days as I find myself sitting more than usual. Mainly to keep the boy still and to make sure he doesn’t jump up or off the sofa. He did get away once this morning and I grabbed him at the third stair as he realized that it wasn’t as easy as usual. So carried him up and back down. Very carefully.

I am grateful that I booked an appointment to have a/c serviced on the 14th as temperatures are warming up but thankfully not the high 30’s.

Well time to go.

I hope you have a great Thursday.

Remembering to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love and gratitude.

Always, we are Carol&Alvin
