It is a NEW YEAR.

Brrr, it be COLD here in Edmonton and most of Alberta and the prairies.

We are breaking records for these cold temperatures.

Hardly something to brag about, I know.

Oh well, just grateful to have a nice warm house and office to spend my days and nights.

I believe that Mr. Alvin is in the throes of cabin fever.

He was up at 12:28 a.m. and then again around 2:30 and then at 4:00 a.m. …….. argh.

This is way too hard on my brain.

Poor boy, I feel it.

 

Well it is Tuesday.

Somehow this cold weather is playing with my brain.

Making an intelligent thought somehow difficult to articulate.

I yawn the minute that I leave the house for work in the morning.

It certainly gives us the feeling that we should be hibernating.

 

I am going to post some happy, photos of warmer weather.

Perhaps that will change my brain.

 

The key lime iced vanilla cupcakes that I had for my 62nd birthday.

Isn’t that funny that I would go straight to the food photo, the sweets.

 

I am sitting in that chair that has the blue blanket draped over the back.

Alvin is laying on that blue blanket beside me.

I do love this room.

 

Flowers from my friend’s house this past summer.

Going to post more as they are so pretty.

Alvin peering around the far corner.

They have such a beautiful yard.

I could live in it forever.

 

Friends enjoying the view outside.

 

Well time to hit the icy trail.

But first as you now know my routine, outside to pick up those precious parcels that Alvin left for me, earlier.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Please be safe.

Please stay warm.

 

Happy Tuesday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of February, 2019.

Another beautiful sunrise.

Clear blue sky.

The smoke is being blasted up through the chimneys as it floats up into the sky.

Another COLD morning, another COLD day.

Another day with no walking for Mr. Alvin.

Sure am looking forward to our first walk once the temperatures warm up.

I am pretty certain that he has CABIN FEVER.

Every once in a bit he grabs a toy and shakes it.

Then he is done.

I am happy to report that he is healing good.

I am certainly not a doctor but there is no swelling from the area where the cyst was removed.

YAY.

Tomorrow morning is going to be another storey as I have been leaving that dreaded cone off as I am supervising him.

He stood in a statue like position yesterday after I placed the cone over his head.

Followed by shaking and then crying.

I could not take it and removed it.

Will try again today.

Hopefully he will be better.

 

Last night Humphrey spent the evening with us.

He was quiet for the most part spending most of his time upstairs.

A couple of times it appeared like they wanted to play with each other but just could not figure out the logistics.

I watch the Invincibles 2 and BOOK CLUB.

First one I had not seen and was really good, who doesn’t love a good animated movie on a Saturday night and then BOOK CLUB, I just loved the movie.

There are not many movies out there with the majority of the cast over the age of 65.

So funny and well done.

That was our Saturday night.

 

Now it is Sunday and time to finish off my secret project (which I will explain later), go and check out Humphrey … feed him and fresh water and clean the litter box.

Home to put away laundry that has been drying

in the basement for a couple of days, lunch for tomorrow, clothes ready and whatever else needs to be done on a Sunday.

Likely better eat breakfast and have COFFEE at some point.

Have an awesome Sunday.

Keep warm.

Grammys on tonight with Alicia Keys, hosting.

Special Hello to:¬† my friends and family …. be safe and keep warm.

Always, Carol & Alvin
