It is a NEW YEAR.

Hello and Welcome to Monday, Family Day here in Alberta, Canada.

Unfortunately not a great day to be out and about.

It has been snowing steadily since we were first up about 3:30 this morning.

It is still snowing.

I have shovelled the deck already and looks like it will need another time shortly.

The front is buried in about six inches or so of snow.

I see more shovelling in the near future.

Teddy and Alvin are in the office with me.

Teddy on the blanket and Alvin at the door.

I am so grateful that we were able to take in a nice long walk yesterday.

We saw Aunt J and Kobi out for a walk.

She likes to get her out after she eats so that it gets her going.

 

Almost all of this weekend I have had an annoying headache.

Go to bed with it and waking up the same way.

Normally I do not like to take any kind of medication when I am under the weather.

Sleeping did not seem to help much so I took some medication.

Actually a few times.

Perhaps I have not been drinking enough water.

I will make a point of watching how much I drink.

It is easy to drink lots of coffee and tea and forget to drink just plain water.

I do know that headaches are a sign of dehydration.

So will watch today.

I have been drinking water since the first time I was up with Alvin.

 

Also I have been trying to upload/download photos from my phone to the computer.

Some of the photos will load and others will not.

I am trying to figure out why not?

It is odd.

 

Some photos from yesterday.

The boys being good while I am on the computer.

The germanium my friend gave me has grown and is blooming once again.

The crystal shining in the window.

My glass flower stem in the Spider plant.

Poinsettia plant still blooming.

The boys hanging out.

 

Last two photos are from this morning, actually only a few minutes ago.

Teddy was on the bed and had the chew treat that Alvin now has in this mouth.

Teddy dropped the chew treat and Alvin grabbed it and ran to the hallway.

Poor Teddy.

 

Well it is time to go and eat some breakfast and have some coffee.

Then time to shovel.

I have laundry to bring up from the basement.

Couple loads of towels and bedding to do.

Yes, change the bedding on our bed.

 

Family Day spending with the pups.

Aunt J is coming for tea later.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

Headache is gone.

YAY, yes I know drink more water.

 

Happy Monday.

Short work week ahead.

That is always nice.

 

Always, Carol, Alvin and Teddy,.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 14th day of January, 2016.

Last night we received a skiff of snow crystals ….. so pretty all these super mini snowballs.

Over the next few days our temperatures are going to drop and it is going to be cold again.

We have been so lucky as it has been only a few days here and there.

 

Last night after work while on our walk we bumped into Alvin’s girlfriend “Abi” and her Mom.

I am not sure what he was thinking about but he barely gave her the time of day …. not much interest.

It was sad.

Usually they frolic and play and it is so much fun to watch.

I teased perhaps he has to “poop” and that is all that he can think about ….. one thought …. focused you know.

Abi had kisses for me even though Alvin all but ignored her.

We had a nice visit and carried on our way.

It was just after we reached the last house and the entrance to the park that someone “pooped.”

Perhaps I was right ….. maybe he had to poop so badly that he could not think of anything or anyone else.

Possible I guess.

Or perhaps he just was not into her at that moment.

We all have that …..

Sometimes when a friend calls or you see someone and you just do not feel like chatting.

It does happen.

Well it was cause for conversation and a smile by both Moms.

I am sure that Abi still loves Alvin.

 

Well one more day of work this week and it is the weekend once again.

I hope that you have an awesome weekend.

Cold or Warm ….. stay safe …. have some fun.

 

Special Hello to: FRIENDS …. FAMILY …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
