Thought for the day…..

Well here it is Saturday, September 10th …… WOW.

Our weather has been amazing and my thought for this wonderful Saturday morning is ……

ENJOY.

Have the best day ….. I love this time of day before it gets too hot (but is great to have this weather at this time of year).

Take a walk now …… sit out on your patio, deck or steps and enjoy a cup of coffee and just gaze around your “hood” and be happy.

SMILE.

So from me to you …………HAP…HAP….HAPPY SATURDAY….

Now I am going to sit out on my steps and drink my coffee while waiting for my ride.

Going to help a friend…..

 

Always, Carol

Alvin and his new “bed”

Some weeks ago,  I purchased this cute sort of plaid cloth doggie bed for Alvin.  I thought that perhaps he would lie in it when we were in the kitchen or out on the deck.  Thinking it would be more comfortable than lying on the cold floor or the hard wooden deck.  The first time that I put it down all he would do was to chew on it.  After about five minutes, I realized that this was not the best idea that I have ever had, so I put it into the basement for future “use”.  This afternoon I am up in my office working on my BLOG, and also attempting to get my closet (papers and stuff) cleaned out.  Alvin was kind of “bored” so I thought that I would go into the basement, and fetch his new bed.  Once again he started chewing on it and I “calmly”  explained to him that this was his bed, and that he should not chew on it.  I tried to give him his bone to chew on in it’s place,  but to no avail.  I guess that I did this for about fifteen minutes before opening the office door, and gently tossing the bed into the hallway.  I started to giggle when Alvin laid down beside the door and started to “cry” …. you know that sound that all “babies” make no matter if they are human or animal.  After a couple of minutes I picked him up, and held him on my lap (he really is too big now).   Once he settled down I grabbed the bed from the hallway, and gently urged him onto the bed.  It was so funny because he did the “digging” thing that he and all dogs do when they are settling down to sleep.  Then he just laid down.  No chewing or fussing or coaxing from me.   WOW.  I put my foot on the inside corner of his bed as he always likes to touch me when he lays down.  I know, I know.  Spoiled, not MUCH!!   Okay, this will generate some “ah’s” –  he nestled his head to touch my foot and went to sleep.  Ah.  Some days he is just too cute for words.  He does have his moments but OMG …… most of the time he is “just too cute for words”…..

Mmm, I am not sure how I am going to get up and clean out the closet.  I do not wish to “wake him”.  I guess I can continue to write for a bit longer.  After all, that is what I am supposed to be doing……. LOL.

Another adventure of Alvin and his Mom…

note: my foot is falling asleep – LOL

FOOTNOTE: LOL (Alvin moved into another position and I removed my foot.  Perhaps, my sock smelled or something.  LOL)  All is well.
