2021

Good Morning ALL! Well we made it through another night. One of us who shall remain nameless (ME) had to get up and go to the bathroom and then the young one was awake. She did pretty good and better when we went downstairs to the sofa. She seems to like the main floor better, not sure why. She spent most of the night on the cushioned bench at the end of our bed. OH, today we are at THREE SLEEPS until CHRISTMAS EVE. YAY. Almost there. I found out yesterday when my daughter dropped by at noon that her BF will be joining us on Christmas Eve. I cannot remember the last time we had someone join the three amigos on Christmas Eve. We are excited to say the least. Oh and just to add: Cookie peed last night but a bit missed the pee pad and ended up on my white rug (yes, the rug in my bedroom). She did better. So more cleaning done.

Well it has been an interesting couple of days or not quite that yet with little Cookie. Yesterday we peed on the mat at the foot of the stairs that was covering a yoga mat making Alvin’s landing when he comes downstairs easier and going up gives him courage. Anyway, it was a “pad” of sorts, so what can you do. So the mat got an extra wash. All good as new. She pooped on the pad at noon which was great. How is it that my life always seems to revolve around POOP? OMG, I guess it is an important function of most life forms on this planet. In some way, shape or form. LOL. Anyway, things are getting better. She seems more calm. This morning she ate a bit more of Alvin’s hard food. A bit later I will try some of her wet food and see what happens. She is drinking lots of water and everything is coming out the back end, lol. I love how she lays beside me on the sofa with Alvin on the other side. We are settling in.

She has disappeared somewhere so I had better cut this short. Alvin is in his regular spot right outside the office door.

I wish you a great December 21st, 2021. The big day is almost here. I cannot wait.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience (definitely working on this one), love, laughter, understanding and gratitude.

Always, Carol, Alvin and Cookie.

P.S. Puppies always teach me to be patient as do older dogs. A good lesson to learn and practice.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 2nd day of May, 2019.

Well this is what we woke up to at 3:30 a.m. today ……

Photos were taken a few minutes ago just after 6:00 a.m.

The temperature is to be +10 degree celsius so it will once again melt by the time that I reach home.

Or at least I am hopefully.

The moisture is good.

 

Sometimes you just feel in your very being that all is being purged.

All the bad stuff.

All the unnecessary junk.

A lightness is in your heart that feels as though life is given a second chance.

Sometimes it does feel as though you have control over life.

Anyway I know I am being cryptic but not my place to give details.

Just so happy that all is well ….

 

So on this Thursday I am feeling so extra blessed.

 

Alvin and I enjoyed a beautiful walk last night.

After the bad roads and multiple accidents near and around the City of Edmonton; I did not think that we would be walking.

But the temperature warmed up throughout the day and was pretty much all melted by the time that I got home from work.

We saw a muskrat in the pond by our home.

Swimming away.

We saw a goose wandering about.

A duck enjoying a swim.

One singles were out and about, I guess.

We also bumped into a young couple out walking their pup whom we have met before and pup is almost 17 years old.

Still lots of energy and grit.

We met a young pup named Miso (after the soup).

Miso was so full of energy …. at first Mr. Alvin played and sniffed to get to know the young one.

After a few minutes he was “done” or so I thought and then they were playing again.

I enjoyed this encounter.

Always nice to meet new people and pups.

 

Well almost time to head out of the door.

My ride came early yesterday with the roads so am thinking the same today.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Happy Thursday.

Remember “gratitude” is the answer.

Yes, it is.

 

Special Hello to:  all our family ….. near and far ……. we love you all.

Always, Carol & Alvin
