It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

What a lovely morning and awesome day  this is already.

We of course were up at 3:00 (actually this time I woke up and then there is no going back).

Downstairs and gave Mr. Alvin his Glucosamine chew and then back to the sofa for a couple of hours.

 

I settled right into a dream.

This dream has come to me on several occasions.

What it means or doesn’t mean is beyond me.

I am at a party, a big corporate party.

Everyone is dressed to the nines.

I decide to change purses in the hotel and bring only a small purse with only the necessities.

Somewhere before the buffet dinner, I lose my purse and spend a great deal of time trying to locate it.

In fact, dinner carries on without me.

I do sneak and fill a bowl with turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy.

Back later for a piece of cake as the dessert table is massive.

I look in the kitchen (why, don’t know) and everywhere.

No one seems to notice me including my date (not sure who that is).

The night ends without me finding my purse.

I give instructions to the coat check person and to the staff.

I think it was held at a big HOTEL, for some reason.

Back at the hotel, I am distraught at the loss of my purse.

My debit card, a new lipstick, keys and other small items.

I decide that I had better cancel my debit card.

Keys well no ID had an address although with the debit card maybe they could figure it out at some point.

I don’t know what technology is out there and I know thieves are smart.

That is providing someone actually stole my purse.

I loved that purse.

I know I did but for the life of me when asked for a description I could not provide one.

It was the strangest dream.

First time I have remembered such details.

Oddly enough, I keep going back to the same party night after night.

Every night the same story.

At some point, I think I even found the purse or what I thought was my purse.

The housekeeping staff located a purse.

No memory of what happened to my debit card, lipstick and keys and other small items.

So strange.

Just one big loop.

Around and around.

Well that is it, all of the dream.

So weird and odd.

 

Almost time to head back downstairs and finish our morning routine.

Grab lunch out of the fridge.

Go outside with Alvin ….

Boots on ….

 

We enjoyed a walk last night and changed it up and got in a bit longer walk.

Oh how we long for dry sidewalks.

Last night on the way home from work in one of the neighbourhoods along the way that we drive into to get around a traffic bog, I noted a couple of small caterpillars clearing snow.

I remarked that possibly the City had contracted them to clean the neighbourhoods.

What do you think I saw when Alvin and I were walking home ….

A Caterpillar.

I was grateful but upon looking out of the bedroom window this morning, I realized that he had pushed up a ridge in front of Humphrey and our houses.

ARGH.

Oh well he did help somewhat for sure.

 

Time to fly.

Have an awesome day.

I hope that you have funky odd strange weird dreams, too.

Gets the imagination working trying to figure them out.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of October, 2017.

Frost this morning ….. it stands out on the cars as I looked out the bedroom window.

We are going to have double digits to the positive up to and including Friday.

Not sure about the weekend as yet.

I am so grateful that ALL of my yard work is complete.

Well almost ….. the grass has to be raked ….. my neighbour said she would give it one last cut and that would take care most of the fallen leaves.

So at that, I guess I am ALL done.

So grateful for a great neighbour.

 

I was speaking to Mr. Alvin this morning while I was getting ready this morning.

Saying that “yes” we are getting older but that is okay.

He cocked his head to one side and then to the other.

Agreed or not.

 

Well getting close to time to leave.

It is difficult to get up when it is starting to get colder outside.

All our bodies want to do is SLEEP.

I would have made a great BEAR.

Mmm, maybe not.

But I would have the hibernation thing down pat.

 

I hope that you all have an awesome Tuesday.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” who has a relative that is dying ….. I wish her peace and to be surrounded by love.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 14th day of June, 2015.

Looking out of the office window facing south I can see the trees blowing in the wind in bright sunlight.

Looking out of my bedroom window facing north I can see the clouds starting to roll in.

So should be enough time to write this blog, drink my first mug of coffee and get dressed so that Mr. Alvin and I can go for a nice walk.

Yesterday it rained after our morning appointment at the Vet …. for Alvin’s pedicure …. only thing was …. his nails were not long enough so no pedicure……first time going to the Vet and no charge ….. so we bought some toothpaste.  They are so nice.  It was the perfect day to remain indoors and tackle my extra long “TO DO LIST.”

I was so pleased with myself as I managed to to everything on the list.

How is that for a productive Saturday.

Today is baking, bath for Alvin and relaxation for us.

YAY ……

This morning I realized for the first time something about Alvin …… he got me up at 4:30 to have his breakfast and to go outside… then we hit the sofa for some more zzzz’s ….. he got me up at 7:30 to go out again ….. then just after 8:00 he sat there and starred at me….. then he settle back down …… then finally at 9:00 he got up barked and jumped off of the sofa …. I got up and then he jumped up into my spot.  Mr. Alvin’s way of getting me up and out off the sofa.  I had just figured that I had deserved to just relax and lay there but guess he figured otherwise.  Thank you Mr. Alvin for being such a good friend and alarm clock.

I hope that you had a great weekend thus far.

The coffee is tasting pretty good and Alvin is pacing looking for the perfect spot to “leave” his CHEWIE ….. he sure can take up a lot of time going from room to room “burying it or hiding it” …. sometimes in plain sight.

Have an awesome Sunday as we have to get the show on the road.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Everyday I learn something new ….. even about Mr. Alvin.

Special Hello to: all the puppies out there who teach their Mommas and Poppas everyday.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 29th day of July, 2014.

It is starting to lighten up outside ….. each morning it stays darker just a bit longer.

Ah, how I miss those mornings when the sun was up high in the sky before 7 a.m. …..

It has been cooling off at nights so makes sleeping easier.

Always good when you do not have to have the air conditioning on all night.

Alvin sits at the window looking out upon his domain …. or at least the back half.

I think we are all adjusting to the move.

Just a few more things to finish up at the house over the next couple of days and it will be ready for the new owners.

I love having my bedroom window open and listening to the neighbourhood waking up.

In the not to distant distance you can hear trucks and cars passing on the highway that goes around our city.

The odd dog barking to be let into the house.

Folks are likely running about their homes getting ready for the day.

Stay at home Moms preparing for the day ….. crafts and other activities.

Dad’s dressing and ready to leave for work.

Working couples getting everyone ready so kids can be dropped at daycare.

Dogs and cats wanting to go outside.

We are almost ready to leave for work.

I hope that whatever you are doing today whether going to work or staying at home or perhaps travelling to some faraway location …. that you have a smile on your face and contentment in your heart.

Lives are worth living.

Always remember to live your life.

Each and every moment.

For that moment will never pass again.

Happy Tuesday.

Special Hello to: my friend “L” back in Regina ….. miss you my friend.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Wednesday Morning and welcome to June 13th, 2012.

I was over the moon, ecstatic and surprised to see a RAINBOW out of my office window this morning … just before 6:00 a.m.  OMG, I love rainbows.  Not too often that you see one early in the morning but it was great.  The sun was shining and the sky beginning to clear up.  At the moment a few dark blue clouds have rolled in but I can still see the sun shining in other parts of the sky.  The grass is a brilliant green as I took a panoramic view of the neighbourhood out of my bedroom window.  That window faces the street and the front yards of my neighbours.  So beautiful.  I love the colours of spring/summer.  The brilliance.

So as I am truly “later” this morning …. I shall leave you with my wonderful sights of this Wednesday morning.  I hope that wherever you are that the view from your bedroom window (or whichever room) is spectacular.  I feel so GREAT this morning.  Off to a great, great start seeing a rainbow.  Happy Days……

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello: to all those folks taking in the view from their windows…..it is breathtaking….. mmmm

Always, Carol and Alvin….
