2021

Good Morning ALL! Happy Easter. Trust this will find you all well. Perhaps even enjoying a bit of chocolate from a delivery from the good ole’ Easter Bunny. I can still taste some of my favourite Easter treats. The marshmallow eggs covered in chocolate, Oh Henry Easter Eggs filled with peanuts and caramel and chocolate, solid milk chocolate Easter Bunny and more. Another favourite food item: Hot Cross Buns. Love those fruity buns. Alvin and I did not see the Easter Bunny this morning and did not find any special treats, but I guess at 63 …. he figured that I no longer required those delectable items. I think that he guessed incorrectly,lol. Maybe next year. We were up over two hours earlier than yesterday morning. Guess we just needed that sleep.

No worries, despite our late rise yesterday I had a very successful day. I spent almost 4 hours out cleaning up the neighbourhood. Shockingly I picked up over 50 of the blue and black disposable face masks. On one of the walkways I picked up in excess of 60 disposable coffee cups. There were so many shingles and the two large black garbage bags that I was carrying were getting so full and heavy that I had to leave a few behind. We have had so much wind over the past few weeks. My arms and back were sore by the time that I got home. In fact, I could not even finish and had to almost drag the bags home and pick up another bag and go back out to finish the 1/2 block by my house which I almost filled a bag doing. I am always surprised by how many people walk by me not wanting to make eye contact, do they think that I am a criminal or what? But then sometimes there are a couple of people that stop me and say thank you. I am not doing this for the gratitude but it sure is nice when it happens. I posted the story on FB mainly because I was appalled at the number of face masks that I found in our neighbourhood. I was totally disgusted by the number. No reason to be throwing them about.

I also heard a dog barking a few minutes into the trash pickup, and seemed close by so I turned to see this little yellow dog running to me and barking. The dog was on a busy street and I almost had a heart attack as I dropped my trash pickers and garbage bag and ran to the dog. He/she was alone. My heart sank. Now what? The closer I got the more she/he would run away and then back to me. As I approached the corner, I could see a man and his dog on a leash out for a walk coming toward me and I asked if was his dog and he said no. He did what he could do and I just stopped traffic trying to figure out what to do. Every time I approached the dog it just ran about. We were on a extremely busy street or couple of streets actually. I physically used my body to stop traffic. Just stood in the middle of the street so that no one could turn as I tried to keep the pup safe. As the cars backed up – a man and small boy came out, I asked if was their dog and he nodded. They both tried to coax the dog to them and finally after a frightening few minutes the boy was able to grab his tail and then scooped the dog up into his arms. They walked away. Then it was over. I apologized to the drivers of the vehicles and moved out of their way and went about my trash pick up. I did have a brief conversation with the man and his dog. We were both surprised that the owner of the dog said nothing, no thank you, nothing. Perhaps he did not know English or I just scared him. Anyway, I was so relieved that the dog was safe. I guess there had to be some excitement on my walk.

When I got home, Alvin was patiently waiting for me. I took the garbage to the back fence and then put in the garage until trash pickup. Once back in the house, time for a shower, I felt so dirty. But before the shower, I gave myself a haircut. My hair was quite long and now it is not. I haven’t had this short for awhile and am pleasantly surprised at how good it looks. Then a long warm shower. Once I was dressed, I put on Alvin’s harness and we went for a walk. I had a visit with neighbours while we were out. Then just enjoyed our walk. When back home, Alvin had his supper and I decided to order pizza as a treat to myself. It was so yummy. Always feels good to do some community service. I do want to mention that some of my friends that commented on my FB post about the trash pick up – said they saw lots of disposable masks just laying on the ground in their communities as well. I would think that this is a problem everywhere. What is wrong with people? I will say this, I was thinking that perhaps this is part of the reason that the pandemic is not going away and why our oceans and lakes and rivers are becoming filled with trash. People just do not seem to care. Easier to turn a blind eye and walk away. Well I will say this, eventually you will have no choice, it will be on your doorstep, your neighbours and mine. If everyone kept in front of their homes and packed their garbage properly …. it would help so much. On that note, I will say Happy Easter. I do hope after my “rant” that people are doing well and are safe.

Happy Easter

Remembering each day to live with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

Happy Easter ALL

Love Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you today? I am well. Had some pretty crazy dreams last night and something to do with the giving out of blankets and missing a person with a dog. I have to say that I felt pretty guilty. I remember standing in front of a bunch of people and for some reason, not sure why there was a shortage of blankets. I had two in my hands and went over to this family who needed a blanket for their dog. The two blankets that I had one was huge and the other was too small. So I said that I would find them another blanket and went on to give the other blankets to other people. Then I woke up and realized that I had not gone back to the other family with the dog with a blanket. Also they were my own personal blankets. I also remember my sister was there and she was telling people don’t worry she has lots of blankets back home as I think perhaps they were thinking that I would run out of blankets. Wow, nothing like waking up from a dream and your first thoughts and feelings are ones of guilt and disappointment. Honestly, can say that I have never had that experience before now. Very deflating.

The sunrise is so pretty this morning. There are puffs or wisps of pink clouds scattered amongst the lighter blue morning sky. I love how our sky appears totally different each and every morning. I just got out of my chair and looked out of the window and noted that closer to the eastern sunrise the sky is more orange and already the pink clouds have disappeared. WOW. This sure has been quite the morning.

This is also my late start to work day and then I work till 7:00 p.m. and Friday I go to the office. Lots to be done in between.

We had a nice Sunday. Starting the day off with a TEAM Chat, video call with my friends Gillian and Signe. So nice to catch up and to see their pretty faces. Alvin and I had a quiet day. I was happy to receive an email saying that my parcel from Reitmans had been delivered – some new clothes. Seldom do I actually purchase clothing from a “store” anymore as most of my clothing comes from thrifting or hand me downs. So this was a nice change. The package came and was delivered into my mailbox which was good. Happy to report that every item fit well. Happy to have some brand new clothing consisting of tops and one new pair of pants. My kids gave me two pair of pants for Christmas so I have three new pair which is great as my “casual pants” selection was getting a tad on the old side. I have been wearing some pants that I got from Old Navy back in the early 2000’s so they are getting close to being 20 years old. Yikes, that is crazy. I have another pair of pants that I love that I bought from The Bay in Regina just after my daughter moved to Edmonton in 2002. Over the years they have gone from loose, baggy to more form fitting. But I can still get my back end into them which is not too bad. Further update the sky is now BLUE. That happened really fast. After our chat and I tried on the clothing – Mr. Alvin and I headed out for a walk. It was quite nice out but not as beautiful as Saturday and we got about halfway into the park and Alvin turned around as I tried to coax him to keep walking forward and before I knew it we were headed for home. Not the walk that I had thought about, much shorter.

Well almost time for a shower and then get this day going. As quickly as it is going before I know it – it will be time to start work. We will go for a walk on my 3:00 p.m. break this afternoon.

I hope that life is treating you well. Have an awesome Monday.

Alvin’s birthday is fast approaching on January 19th, 2021 and he will be “12.” Looks like his party will be held after his actual birthday. I spoke to Teddy and Kobi’s Mom and invited the pups to attend when I got the party arranged. Hopefully Alvin’s sister and family will be able to attend. The plan is to have it on the weekend after his birthday which would be the 23rd or 24th, Saturday or Sunday. I will have to go and pick up a birthday cake as well and a gift for him and party favours. I cannot believe Alvin is going to be 12.

That reminds me I must call the vet this morning and make his regular appointment for one day this week.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect and compassion for all.

Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to a bright almost sun filled morning sky as the sun begins to rise in the east.

I absolutely love sunrises.

The palest of pinks and oranges and yellows.

So delicate as they fill the horizon.

Looks like another beautiful day on the way.

 

Alvin and I are doing well.

I cannot believe, well yes I can, actually.

How wonderful the people are that I have surrounded myself with …. they are the best.

I have the best siblings, daughter and son-in-law and friends.

Everyone has been so great.

My friends that live nearby have been so great checking to see if I need anything from the grocery store.

My family checks on me and I on them.

Likely not enough.

I am working from home so that fills a good chunk of the day.

 

We had a great walk yesterday after work.

Humphrey spent the day with us.

His Mom took him to the Vet for a 3:30 p.m. appointment and they were able to fix him up.

Humphrey will be on antibiotics for a bit but he was happy when it was all over.

Thank goodness.

 

A friend picked me up more groceries yesterday and another dropped off some eggs.

We chatted as we social distanced ourselves from each other.

No hugs at this time.

 

Another friend down the street called to see how Alvin and I were doing.

They are older than me and they still worry about us.

I worry about them but they are well and that is great news.

 

I can smell the coffee perking and I am happy to have freshly ground coffee beans.

I am so grateful for that little PLUTO video, noticed it was called PLUTO LIVING.

Please google it.

PLUTO is this little dog and he speaks with kind words for us all.

I am not certain who does the voice, perhaps his Momma but it is so well done.

A reminder to us all.

Look after your friends and neighbours and family.

The seniors really our help at this time, egads I am in some circles considered to be a senior.

But I am doing great.

Check in on folks.

If you know of someone struggling and you can give them even a couple of cans of beans or veggies or a loaf of bread of some bathroom tissue, do it.

If we all did this we could feed a nation.

We can all share something of what we have whether it be inspiration, kind gestures, food goods, something.

 

Well I am getting close to time to head downstairs and grab some coffee.

THe smell is increDible …. as if wafts up the stairs.

My Alvin is adjusting to this all ….

He knows when his blankets are close to the computer by the window I am writing my post.

Then when I move them he knows I am working.

He has really been great through all of this.

He does sometimes jump up from a nap when my cell phone rings (work line).

 

I hope that you are getting some exercise and fresh air.

Even when we are self isolating it is good to go for a walk.

Just stay away from folks.

You can still say HELLO from a distance.

Eat right.

It is hard to stay away from the comfort food.

A little here and there is okay.

 

Have a great Thursday.

I hope that you and your family are doing well.

Be kind to each other.

We need each other at this time and always.

This too, shall pass.

We are strong.

Support each other.

With kindness and respect.

 

With only kindness and respect to you,

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

P.S. please remember to laugh…..

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Good Morning,

Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of November, 2019.

It feels as though we are up extra early but here it is 8:00 a.m.

We have been up for a bit now as I have made the bed, gathered laundry and got dressed.

Of course we were up about 3:00 a.m. for Alvin’s routine “glucosamine chew” and bathroom break.

Then we hit the sofa for some more sleep.

Of course we were up at 5:00 a.m. so that Alvin could eat his breakfast.

He has a routine.

Now when the time changes in the middle of the night …. tonight…..

We will be disrupted for a couple of weeks until he settles into a new routine.

I am just along for the ride.

Oh well, it has been quite the experience thus far.

 

So last night.

My daughter was feeling better as she has been sick for about a week.

She went to work but by late morning was out of energy.

I know that feeling.

We decided to see if leaving work early by one hour was an option and it was, thankfully.

It feel as though I had, had a whole day off.

So nice.

During the drive to my house we decided to detour to COSTCO.

Being home sick does not help get your groceries.

We ended up home about the same time I normally get home so Alvin did not know the difference.

The late afternoon was nice once again so once Alvin had finished outside and having supper, we all went for a glorious walk.

As we approached Teddy’s house we saw his Auntie J’s car.

She was to arrive last night.

Aunt J is there to stay with Teddy while his parents go to VEGAS for two weeks.

So nice to see her and next weekend we will get together for supper and a visit.

In between we will catch some walks together if the weather allows.

Back home after the walk ….. on went the COFFEE POT ….. followed by starting supper.

Once supper was in the oven ….. we gathered up some of the Halloween decorations and took them downstairs.

My daughter remarked “that if you are going downstairs for something you might as well take something with you”

A great idea, actually as the Halloween stuff had to go downstairs at some point.

We went downstairs to bring up the Christmas Tree.

Originally my daughter was going to spend the night but being sick she thought a sleepover might be better another time.

So we brought up the tree.

Had supper.

Decided on a Christmas Movie, THE NUTCRACKER.

We always have a movie on in the background.

Moved around the chairs in the living room to accommodate the tree.

Assembled the tree only to find out that only the top lights worked on the tree.

Last year some had burned out but not that many.

The tree does not owe me anything as it is now ten years old.

Dilemma, what to do.

Luckily I had purchased extra lights last year.

By this time my daughter had to go.

I am once again grateful for her assistance.

She suggested checking out U-tube for some helpful hints on how to remove the lights from a prelit tree.

Removed her groceries from the fridge/freezer and she was on her way.

I took a look around and decided to clean up from dinner before getting into the Christmas decorating.

Once dishes were done, I sat down with a cup of coffee to assess the situation.

After watching a couple of short videos I decided that my earlier idea of snipping off the lights with my wire cutters was the best idea.

I did find out however an easier way to do this.

After everything it was after 8:00 and my energy and desire to decorate had wanned, so I just kicked back and put together a plan for tomorrow which is today.

I figured that I had all weekend which I do.

So here we are ….. Saturday morning.

Time to get things started.

Put on Laundry, the COFFEE, of course, have breakfast and then start taking off the lights.

Once done I will string the lights and then decorate.

It will take some extra time but that is okay.

A story for later.

Alvin is perhaps losing the bit of patience that a dog has …. he wants to go downstairs.

 

I hope that you have an awesome first weekend in November.

We did receive some moisture last night.

Rain followed by bit of snow.

Might be slippery out there.

I am hopeful that the temperatures will once again return to plus temperatures.

Happy Saturday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Funny as much as I love to decorate the tree and the house for Christmas; I am okay with just getting the tree up the first night and decorate the next day.

A few years ago, I would have worked through and had the tree and house decorated before going to bed.

Older and wiser?

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 28th day of January, 2019.

Temperatures cooling down and we received a fresh light blanket of snow overnight.

What a crazy assortment of weather we have had over the past few weeks.

Up, down and everything in between.

Anything but consistent.

Starting to feel more like Calgary.

 

We had another busy, busy weekend.

Yesterday, Teddy’s Mom called to see if he could come for a play-date as not great for walking, I agreed.

He spent from about 1:15 until 4:00 p.m. with us.

Then Humphrey’s Mom asked if he could come and stay with us from 4:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Earlier in the afternoon I had the most glorious telephone conversation with my sister.

I always love our chats.

We catch up and always, always have a bit of laughter.

I would say this time not as much as other times.

But she always brings a smile to my face.

I miss not having her close by.

Tonight Humphrey will be spending the evening with us.

I would say that Alvin was a tad bit nervous with Humphrey last night …. most especially when he moves fast.

He is a bit awkward when he runs as he has three legs.

But they get along and I am grateful.

 

I can hardly believe that the weekend is over.

The whole weekend including Friday night was jammed pack full of company and outings.

I did manage to get some laundry and tidying up done.

Even transplanted my two poinsettia plants into one point.

I received two beautiful arrangements over Christmas.

One of them had a poinsettia plant and three other plants.

Only the poinsettia and one plant survived in that arrangement.

That one was a red poinsettia, so pretty.

The other arrangement was a yellow poinsettia.

So I put it all together and it looks great.

I hope that it survives.

They are fussy plants.

Not good for pets either.

So have to be very careful, which I am.

 

Well getting close to time to head on downstairs and finish getting ready.

I am getting a ride to work most days with my neighbour as she works downtown.

My carpool is soaking up the sun with her husband in Mexico.

Lucky gal.

 

I hope that you have an awesome, fantastic Monday.

See you tomorrow.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, thank you for our chat yesterday and looking forward to a SKYPE chat with you soon.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Alvin’s friends and mine, too.

Humphrey the Cat

Teddy the Pup

ALVIN

ALVIN,

You came into my life almost a year ago ..

You were small, needy and unwell..

You made me feel anxious and sad,

Helpless and mad.

But then one day … the veil lifted.

I fell in love with YOU.

Loving your dog is unlike the love you have for a child, friend or sibling.

It is unconditional.

No strings attached.

No arguments or compliments

The view is one-sided

Or perhaps it is not.

But the feelings are felt.

It is true and inspiring.

You have taught me patience.

To be more loving.

You came into my life late one night.

Almost one year ago.

An idea not conceived thoroughly

But yet ….. it was …

You are where you are supposed to be.

Lucky ME.

I am blessed to have you in my life.

We are joined at the hip (sometimes at the foot) LOL.

But nonetheless we are joined.

I love you Alvin.

You bring me great joy.

Continual amazement.

I know that you understand me.

Each word ….. even when you tilt you head to the side.

I know you know….

Thank you so much…..

Love

Always, Your “Mom”

This KISS, this KISS (please stop, Mom you are embarrassing me!!)

 

Written on our first Anniversary together … January 19, 2011.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 30th day of October, 2018.

Second last day of the month.

Tomorrow is HALLOWEEN.

Are you ready?

I have my costume and accessories all ready.

In fact, I took my accessories or props, if you will, to work yesterday.

Now I just have to don my costume and I am done.

Simple and done.

Thank you to my friend “G” for lending me one of her costumes.

I am really grateful to my friends.

My friend “N” fixed my kitchen chair better than new.

I had to run over to another friend’s last night to drop off a package to be mailed to a friend in Saskatchewan.

Canada Post offers free shipping on Tuesday to all small business owners who applied for a business discount for specific posting.

While I was at her house, our friend N walked the chair over and it was waiting on my porch when I arrived back home.

I called their house right away and Alvin was barking when he heard his friend outside but no way for him to open the door.

According to his wife, he sat on the chair on the porch for a couple of minutes.

That would have been a cute sight.

I am surrounded by amazing, supportive, funny, good, awesome people that I am blessed to call my friends.

How did I get so lucky?

That is a question for the ages and one that I am at a loss to answer.

Thank you to my friends who I am over the moon grateful to have in my, in our lives.

Both Alvin and I are very lucky.

 

We went for our walk last night and Alvin turned to head home well before the half way point.

Not sure why.

Perhaps it was because when we were closer to home we saw one of our friend’s little guys outside.

He ran over to say hi to me and Alvin.

His Mom was right there and we chatted for a few moments.

They are the family with the big puppy named STELLA.

Stella is doing great and next door is a 4 year old dog named SCOOBY who is the best fit to be her friend.

He is a lively, full of energy doggie as is Miss Stella.

We were out for a walk one day and Scooby’s Dad was dropping him at Stella’s for a playdate.

How cool is that!

Guess that click on KIJIJI was meant to be.

You never know what, when or why.

But live has a way of working out.

 

Well almost time to leave for work.

Have a great day.

Take time to take deep breathes and to relax.

Even if for a few moments each day.

A good reminder for us all.

 

Happy Tuesday.

I am excited for tomorrow.

 

Special Hello to: all my friends, a girl is blessed and so is her Alvin.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 17th day of October, 2018.

It has been an odd morning here in our house.

Nothing bad for sure, just odd.

We were up at 4:00 originally which is not out of the ordinary for us.

Alvin had his breakfast, some water and outside for a bathroom break.

At 4:02 a.m. I set the microwave timer for 75 minutes which would have brought us to 5:17 a.m.

Then we hit the sofa for that extra sleep.

Next thing I know I checked my watch and to my horror it read 5:40 a.m.

I had to rub my eyes and recheck the time.

I must have slept through the timer.

Up fast and into the kitchen.

I wrote in my gratitude journal ….. slept in no time to write……thinking I am grateful that I still had time to do most everything else if I got to it.

So I ate breakfast,

Showered.

Got dressed.

Now writing this post.

 

At the rear of my house (which is where my office is located) I can hear a small dog barking in the near distance.

I think it is the same dog that barks most of the time.

This leads me to believe that the dog is outside all of the time.

I believe that I am going to investigate in the daytime (after work).

Poor little thing.

Why have dogs if they cannot stay in the house, especially if they are small.

There are no lights out back and when I opened the window it was pitch black (at this time).

Poor little thing.

 

I look at my little Alvin and think to myself that both him and I are so lucky.

So blessed to have found each other.

There are days perhaps when one or the other of us might be less than patient with the other but we would never hurt the other one.

I would NEVER leave him outside all of the time.

At the end of the day, I know he is snuggled next to me and is safe.

 

I am surprised that no one has called in a complaint to the city for the barking?

Why the once for Alvin and none for this little guy?

Perhaps if the city came out …. they could help him out.

Well in the meantime I will look into this matter.

Discreetly, of course.

 

Well almost time to leave as I am catching the bus today as my carpool is sick.

I hope that you all have an awesome day.

If you are going to have a pet …. be respectful of them.

They are living breathing creatures just like us.

 

Special Hello to:  my daughter and son-in-law who are the best parents to my grand-puppies.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 29th day of September, 2018.

The trees are swaying in the breeze while the sun rises and sky slowly clears from blue rain clouds.

Thank goodness for the weekend.

Time to rejuvenate, relax and also to do some things around the house.

This is a weekend of birthday celebrations.

We are celebrating my Son-in-law’s birthday which was on Wednesday.

No cooking for this Mum as we are ordering in ….. pick-up or take-away whatever you happen to call it.

Sounds like it will be Chinese Food.

My Son-in-law also wanted to have an Ice-Cream Cake so that will come from Dairy Queen.

What an easy party to plan.

The card and gift are done.

Just have to tidy up and have the refreshments ready.

Coffee and Water ….. easy peasy.

 

Alvin and Teddy are in the office with me while I write this post.

Teddy slept well and Mr. Alvin well he woke me up a few times.

Perhaps it was the full moon or the time of year.

I do not know.

He appears to be feeling well.

Or perhaps it is an age thing.

I get up to go “pee” so I guess why couldn’t he.

Oh well.

 

Sunday, it is coffee at a friend’s in the ‘hood.

I love to say that.

We take turns.

This time her parents are here for a visit and she is having a little birthday party for her Mom and invited myself and “G.”

The three of us girls take turn hosting coffee weekend get togethers.

Sometimes it is almost every weekend and other times it could be a month in between.

Depends on what everyone is doing.

 

So this weekend is all about celebrating.

 

Yesterday was the funeral of my friend from work.

It was a beautiful celebration of his life.

He was loved by his family, friends and co-workers.

That was clearly apparent.

He will be missed by us all.

I was saddened to hear that his little dog had passed away just a few days ago.

So much heartbreak in one family.

It is a reminder to hold your loved ones near and tight.

Tell them all how much they mean to you.

Do things together.

Phone them, visit them, text them, face-time with them, spend time with them.

It was a clear reminder that life is SHORT.

Do not take them for granted.

Treat people with kindness and respect.

We may only have one chance to do this meaning you never know the next time that you will see that person again.

Also be kind to your four-legged friends and all creatures.

They deserve your love, understanding, kindness and respect.

All living beings deserve this.

 

To all of my dear friends and family, you mean the world to me.

I think of you all in my waking moments and in my dreams.

Sometimes we are on unusual adventures and sometimes it is just a little visit to say hello.

Take care.

I thank you for being you and for being in my life.

 

One of our long-time co-workers and friend retired yesterday.

Monday is going to seem like we have landed on another planet.

Two of our staff and friends will no longer be there.

 

Have an awesome Saturday.

 

Special Hello to:  ALL my family and friends.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of August, 2018.

There be some BLUE SKY and a bit of a breeze this August morning.

Last night I figured that we should go for a walk.

We have missed a few due to the poor air quality from the smoke.

The air was surprisingly clear and not much smoke.

We enjoyed our walk.

On the half way part of our walk coming toward home, we stopped a chatted to a gentlemen who is always working in his garage.

A couple of houses away lives Teddy (our little four-legged friend).

As we approached his yard, Alvin pulled me as if his life depended on it.

Across the grass we went and toward the sidewalk.

I had to keep looking down so that I would not lose my balance and trip.

He was a dog with a mission.

Up the front stairs and he started barking at the door just as I was able to ring the doorbell.

Our friend “I” answered the door and said “Well hello, perfect timing, come on in.”

I said, “I am sorry but Alvin just pulled me across the lawn and up the walk to your door.”

So in we went for an unexpected visit.

They had just finished supper.

We had a great visit.

Teddy and Alvin.

They ran and around.

Teddy kept jumping up …. so happy to see us.

Sometimes it is those out of the blue happenings that are the most fun.

We bumped into other friends out for a walk on our way home.

What a great night.

 

After returning home, I decided that I wanted to watch the new AVENGERS movie.

This is the one that my neighbour and I did not get to see as there were technical difficulties at the theatre.

Final it is on DEMAND so I was able to rent it.

Really good movie.

Unfortunately I was so tired that I kept nodding off and there was about 45 minutes remaining.

So decided to stop it and will watch it today.

I guess all of that fresh fresh air.

 

Teddy will be spending a few days with us this week.

We always love having him over.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

Still have some items on my TO DO LIST.

One thing I did between yesterday and this morning is to write a letter.

YES, I hand wrote a letter to my Aunt.

I have not done that in a long, long time.

Felt good.

 

Well I want to do some work on preparing the photos of my vacation for this blog.

Do not want to wait too long or I may forget some important item/fact.

Also have to work on my STEEPED TEA and NORWEX businesses.

Somehow they have been slightly neglected this past while with company and vacation.

 

Have an awesome day.

Life is great.

It truly is.

Family and friends.

All of the fur babies in my life.
