The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! What a beautiful morning. Feels like a tropical heat wave. Almost time to bring out the sandals and light jacket, almost. Well something kind of unnerving but cool at the same time happened this morning, almost one hour ago now. I was on my way back upstairs to have a shower when I saw a dog running by my house. As it ran, I realized that it was a coyote and not a dog. I have never seen a coyote go by my house. It turned down the next back lane going east and then headed north. Unfortunately I did not have my phone in my hand as I was going to pick it up when something caught my eye outside on the street. Would have been great to have had a photo of our visitor. I sure hope that no one left their dogs outside unattended as I think that they can actually jump the height of our fences. I immediately texted all of my friends in the neighbourhood to warn them. One of my friends already texted me back to say that she saw a big one running down the street about two days ago. They are getting brave and must be hungry. Quite scary. Another reason why I do not walk with Alvin or by myself in the dark. It is hard not to in the wintertime. But when we go after work, will make sure that we go right after work no dilly dallying about. We have a lot of rabbits in the neighbourhood. I know it is the circle of life but the thought makes me feel bad/sad. Anyway, it is good to be aware of your surroundings and I am glad that I let my friends and neighbours know.

I sure could have stayed out in the backyard this morning as it is so warm. Really nice. The snow is becoming sticky and is feeling like snowman making time. Perhaps later.

Last night I went to visit one of my neighbours, the one with the new pup. The name reverted back to its’ original one which is Kami. She is a delight and for eight months old, quite well behaved. We will be watching her on Wednesday night while her Mom goes curling and I cannot wait. Excited for Alvin and Kami to get to know each one a bit better. They have met so that is great. I also have to go into the office tomorrow for the day. My neighbour will come and check on Mr. Alvin as I do not wish to leave him alone for that long of a day. Too long for an older guy.

Well time to have some coffee (sure am enjoying my new coffee perk) and get settled in for work.

I look forward to walking at my lunch break again today. Yesterday was nice but today is warmer already.

Have an awesome day. Be careful and enjoy your day.

Continuing to live this day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities.

Always, Carol & Alvin
