Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

We are in the middle of a summer thunderstorm complete with rain and wind.

Thank goodness Alvin has already been out twice so we are good for awhile.

I moved my potted plants away from the protection of the house around 6:00 a.m. and hopefully the storm passes without any damage to my flowers.

Yes, I am one of those people who move their flowers when the clouds start to roll in.

I love my flowers and they bring me joy.

They cannot bring job if the hail flattens them or heavy rains.

So I try to take care of them so they will last long into the summer and even fall.

A drink is what they got this morning …. raining some but not heavy, thankfully.

 

I am feeling a lot more rested after spending a glorious night in my/our bed.

Alvin slept through the night and only went to get up when I showed to be doing so.

Yesterday I called our Vet and spoke to one of the staff who in turn spoke to the Vet.

She added another prescription to his pain med, this one he will take every 12 hours for three days on top of the other that is once every 24 hours.

I think he is also freaked out by the storm.

I will say one thing that is odd, he listens to my commands now.

If I say stay (he was on the bed), he stays until I help him down.

If I say have a drink of water, he went and had a drink of water.

Very strange.

Not that he is unruly or doesn’t listen but he doesn’t ….. not a bad doggie.

Just spoiled, I guess.

It is raining a bit harder.

I am hoping that the clouds keeping on moving ….. I am sure that someone somewhere needs some moisture.

We would like some sunshine.

I don’t think that the grass is get any more green.

The colour of grass – oh, how I love that shade of green.

 

I can smell the coffee perking and I cannot wait to have a sip of the Hazelnut blend that I am perking.

Well thankfully things in our household are much better.

To think it all started with a storm last Thursday, me on the after hours phone line, a slip getting up on the deck, a visit to the Vet and who knows what else.

I am grateful that today even though it is storming …. I am feeling a lot more ZEN.

Which is a good thing as Mr. Alvin can sense when I am anxious.

 

Last night after work my daughter went to COSTCO.

She picked up some items for me.

Luckily I just had prepared a black bean burger with all the toppings including some fresh lettuce that she had given me.

When she arrived with not much time and with a sore foot (her story to tell), I offered her half of my burger which I had already cut in half.

I unloaded the car while she had a bite to eat.

She had another stop to make and I figured that she might be a bit hungry as it was after 6:00 by this time.

I love seeing my girl even if it is on the run …. all time, every second, minute is priceless.

Well that rain is coming down harder.

I will have to watch my flowers.

Might have to make a mad dash out to move them.

 

Well 8 days to work before vacation time.

So time to sign off here and grab my coffee as the fragrance has curled its’ way up the stairs to my nose.

Mmmmm.

 

Have an awesome Wednesday.

I hope that kindness and respect follow you every second of every day.

Living with kindness and respect is the only way.

 

I/We, shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin
