It is a NEW YEAR.

Welcome to Friday morning and it is raining and windy here in Edmonton.

Started to rain in the early evening.

Not constant.

 

How are you this morning?

I am well.

Couple of things.

We were up I would say about 5:00 a.m.

Alvin had his breakfast and did his business in the backyard of course.

Then we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

I must have fell into a fairly deep sleep quickly as I had the most unusual dream.

When we woke up and I started to write in my “Gratitude Journal,” I found myself writing quickly about this dream.

Some of the details were fresh in my memory.

Which is unusual for me.

I madly wrote them down and filled the page before I knew it.

I made connections with some things that happened over the course of the day.

The premise of the dream was: I was in my Grandmother’s house in the small town where she lived decades ago (I lived there at one point with her).

There was this dog, not Alvin.

I had given him a haircut which was a perfect replica of a dog, a clone.

Not even the same dog.

After it dropped to the counter or whatever the surface was, it basically came alive.

From just what would have been a haircut.

The original dog was not hurt or anything but now there were two dogs.

I remember being frightened of this second dog but it was so cute.

There were a great many things that happened in this dream.

There was another woman with me with the dogs.

Almost feels like other people but I am not sure.

At one point I am sitting in the passenger side of a white SUV.

Waiting for someone.

It was winter out as I remember seeing snow.

We were pulled over near a sidewalk.

There were two Real Estate Agents with signs that opened the back door of the SUV and were in and out with their signs as they tried to put them up.

When I finally had enough and climbed into the driver’s seat, they yelled “don’t run him over” and there was this third Real Estate Agent behind the car.

It was odd and creepy and weird.

I looked for traffic as a car slowed and waited for me to pull out.

The street that I turned onto was busy but I finally got turned.

When I turned the street some cigarettes started to fall out of a little nook in the steering column near the wheel.

OMG, strange.

I remember hearing a conversation between the woman and the house and another …. the woman was explained some things …. I don’t remember the details now.

But she called me the B word.

Yikes.

Well that is it.

That was an odd one.

So I have been watching a lot of “Love It or List It,” lately.

I saw a white SUV drive by yesterday.

The second dog was PLUTO the newest Canadian sensation.

I recognized the town as where I lived for a short time with my Grandma.

She lived there for more than 25 years.

 

Anyway, I was going to post some photos and I see by the clock on the “wall” that it is almost time for me to grab my coffee and start the work computer.

I might try and post a few from the week that was …..

 

I was trying to snap some artistic photos of my flowers and a glass flower from different angles.

Well some turned out better than others.

Then there was Alvin and Humphrey on the deck.

You can see Humphrey sitting on the deck post with the beautiful sunrise behind him.

My first ever BUBBLE TEA sold my Steeped Tea of course.

Well that was the week that was …..

 

I hope that you had a great one.

Remember to live in kindness and respect.

We got this.

 

I/We Remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

So I wonder ……

At this very moment, I am alone with my thoughts and body as Alvin is away for a sleepover.

There are times and this is one of them – that I wonder.  Why, is there no man in my life?

I am a great gal, girl, woman, human being.

I  am loving, giving, considerate, funny, artistic, attractive and a lot more.

People have asked me over the years, “how come you are single” – some probably are thinking that there is a major flaw or something.

I always repeat the same mantra …… “just haven’t found the right guy” ….. he’s out there….. somewhere.

I finish by saying that “who knows someday he might just walk up to my door”  ….. and that will be that.

I do miss having someone to talk to daily.

Up until a couple of years ago I was working (not from home), so I had the carpool guys and co-workers.

So on a daily basis I was able to connect with a human being.

These days, it is me and Alvin.

I see my daughter as often as possible (but she works full-time).

I have new friends here and do see them often.

I am grateful for this life.

I love being at home.

It is a dream of mine come true.

But somedays and I guess this is one of them, it  would be great to have someone to cook supper for ….. to chat about our days …… cuddle on the sofa …… go out for dinner…. take a walk in the neighbourhood…

So this is the moment I am currently in ……

I am very grateful for all that I have …… for my dear family and friends…….

I am happy as they say “in my own skin” ….. which is a good thing……. cause who else would be??  LOL

But a girl can “wish” right……

So for now ……. I will just be grateful to have this wonderful life and maybe, just maybe someday soon…… someone to share it with……

 

Alvin ......

 

 

P.S. they will have to LOVE Alvin …….

Always, Carol
