It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Monday morning.

The sun is shining brightly here in Edmonton.

Alvin and I were up early and then back to the sofa for extra zzz’s.

Back to work tomorrow.

Well moving one desk over tomorrow morning.

 

We had a great Easter weekend.

Yesterday one of my girl friends brought me a turkey dinner plate with apple pie for dessert.

I am blessed.

She also dropped off some homemade turkey soup.

How lucky am I?

 

I pretty much completed everything on my TO DO LIST.

Today I want to trim the fur on Alvin’s paws a little.

His ears need to be cleaned.

I will give him a bath at some point soon.

Submitting a Steeped Tea order later this afternoon.

Garbage goes out tonight.

 

I rented the latest JUMANJI movie last night.

It was funny and made me jump a couple of times.

I do like Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black.

Also good to laugh these days.

 

I should be calling family and friends but honestly phoning is not one of my favourite things to do.

Most especially since part of my work is being on the phone.

Anyway, that has to be set aside and I need to reach out and contact family and friends.

We have been texting and sending emails but that is not quite the same.

So if you are like me, reach out today or tomorrow and call someone.

 

I hope that you all are having a great Easter weekend.

I am blessed that we have an extra long weekend.

Sending good thoughts your way.

 

With kindness and respect,

I/We, remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 23rd day of April, 2019.

The sun is well up and the sky is slightly overcast.

My last day of vacation before heading back to work tomorrow.

I have so enjoyed this time at home with my Alvin.

So much has been accomplished and I am most grateful.

Last night we went to bed a bit later than our usual time as we had Mr. Humphrey over while is Momma was out for her dancing class.

Up then up at 5:30.

Alvin ate his breakfast and went outside and then we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

I figured last morning to sleep in for a bit.

I was dreaming stories which was great and now only remember bits and pieces.

Like out for a walk with Alvin and a small dog (one we knew but do not remember) with no leashes.

Not something that I would ever be doing.

Alvin went to turn onto the street and a red car turned at the same time he stopped and rolled down his window; it was my son-in-law.

I do not remember if he even spoke to me.

I managed to get the pups to safety across the street where my son-in-law stayed with them while I got into the car.

The windshield was covered with a sheet as I struggled to get the seat ready for me to drive the car.

It was so strange.

The seat was not your ordinary one.

Every time I moved it back for forward; it would zig and zag.

Finally I managed to get it sort of okay and pulled the sheet up and caught it in the door so that it would not move.

Why I did not take it off I will never know?

Why was it there in the first place I will never know?

Why did I drive the car?

Why did I not put the pups in the back seat and my son-in-law drive us home?

Why did my son-in-law bring the pups home?

We were very close to home.

Just down the street by the park.

More questions that not.

So many dreams in that few hours that we were snuggled on the sofa this morning.

At the end I drove home and my son-in-law brought the pups home.

I think he carried them.

Stuff of dreams.

 

Well last day before heading back to work.

Some laundry to do and I am going to check on Mr. Humphrey after getting dressed.

A bit later than we have been getting up as it is slightly after 9:00 a.m.

We have been up for about 20 minutes or so.

Will be enjoying a walk or two today.

 

I hope that you all had an awesome Easter weekend.

Spent time with your family and friends.

Perhaps got some spring cleaning done.

Had a walk with your pup or with family and friends or ALL.

 

Wishing you an awesome Tuesday.

Happy Day.

 

Looking forward to coffee after I get dressed and go check on Mr. Humphrey.

Perhaps later will bring him over to spend some time with us.

He likes to go outside.

 

Special Hello to: all my family and friends.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 31st day of March, 2018.

The last day of March 2018.

Today is the birthday of a dear friend of mine from Saskatchewan “P.”

Wishing my friend the most wonderful birthday.

 

We had a guest for a sleepover last night.

Master Teddy.

His Momma dropped him off about 7:15 p.m. last night and she also stayed for a little visit.

Teddy’s Mom also brought both Alvin and Teddy this huge chew treat.

Somehow during that few minutes afterward Alvin was chewing on one and Teddy had none.

We looked all over the main floor and nothing.

Could it be that Mr. Alvin ate the huge treat in that short of time.

We looked under the sofa and chairs.

Under the pillows and throw blankets.

In the corners and everywhere.

Not to be found.

After our investigation it was plain to see that Alvin had been the culprit.

Eating most of both of the treats.

We visited for a few more minutes and then it was just me and the boys.

Deciding that Teddy should have some of the last remaining treat, after all it was his.

I managed to wrangle what was left of the second one and cut a piece off for Teddy.

Alvin had no problem sharing his new bed with Teddy.

Nice to see that someone loves the new bed.

Both black and white.

On older and one younger.

Both cuteness galore.

Having fun with these guys.

Alvin is learning to share ( a little ).

 

You never know what will happen at night time.

Teddy has a cute little black & white blanket and a stuff animal “Eyore”  (possibly not correct spelling).

Alvin thought that he should have it so I had to wrestle it away from him a few times.

 

While I was reading the boys started to get comfortable.

Alvin slept near the pillow at the head of the bed close to me.

Teddy had his blanket, Eyore and was by my legs.

I find it uncomfortable to sleep in one spot for the whole night.

I usually go from one side to the other after I have finished reading.

At one point the little one was sleeping in between my legs as I lay on my side.

But both settled in and both managed to snuggle close to me.

Nice to feel “wanted.”

Teddy ended up on the outside side of the bed next to me with Alvin beside me at the top of the bed.

It is always interesting to see what Alvin will do and he has not really surprised me.

He is a Momma’s boy.

 

Alvin as usual was up early but Teddy would have slept (given the opportunity).

At this time Teddy is laying on our bed chewing on a treat and Alvin has his treat on the blanket in my office.

He keeps going back and forth.

He really wants the treat that Teddy has but after being scolded earlier for attempting to take the treat from him, he has listened.

Imagine that.

Alvin listening.

Well time to go and get dressed and have some coffee.

We are enjoying this sleepover.

 

Later my daughter and family are coming over for a visit and for supper.

Will be interesting to see FOUR puppies …..

Funny …. Alvin is laying in the doorway to the bedroom watching Teddy.

What a guy.

 

Well I must get going here.

I hope that you enjoy the photos.

 

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: my friend “P” back in Saskatchewan enjoying a birthday.

Always, Carol & Alvin
