Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

We just arrived home from a nice walk a little while ago.

There is ever so slight of a breeze as the temperature is already begin to climb.

Supposed to be +26 degrees celsius today.

Which is warm considering the temperatures that we have been experiencing this summer.

In the some of our Canadian provinces east of Alberta the temperatures have been ugly hot.

With the humidex it has been almost too much.

I cannot imagine being a dog or cat or any animal including human in +40 temperatures.

Not for me.

While out and about we bumped into Humphrey and his Mom.

They were also out for some fresh air and sniffing.

Mom for the fresh air and Humphrey for the sniffing.

He likes to go into everyone’s front yard and sniff the trees and plants.

In a little bit after a late breakfast for me and a cup of coffee, I have decided to move up Mr. Alvin’s haircut.

Might as well get it cut before the heat of the day.

 

Last night after work Humphrey visited.

After supper and clean up I went over and picked up Bogart to introduce him to Alvin.

Alvin wanted to say hi but was a bit reluctant but the kitten just hissed and did a baby kind of growl.

We did go into the backyard and I placed the kitten down at one point but he was scared so I picked him up.

We spent a few hours just chilling on the sofa.

The kitten draped loosely around my neck, Humphrey dozing on Alvin’s doggie bed and Alvin stretched out on the sofa beside us.

By the time that I took the boys home, Bogart was hissing a bit less.

Alvin was panting so he clearly had some anxiety over the whole thing although he wanted to get close to the kitten.

I don’t think he has seen a kitten before in his life.

Not so easy taking photos with a kitten in your arms.

I snapped these photos earlier in the day from my office window.

The deck was still wet from that wicked storm the night before …

I love my backyard.

Flowers have survived.

 

Gotta love a little kitten.

Well time to fly if I want to get Alvin’s hair cut down today.

I hope that you all have a wonderful Saturday.

Enjoy the day.

Each moment.

Living my life with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

How are you today?

I am great.

Had a time actually getting up though.

I was dreaming away and just kept wanting to go back to sleep.

Seemed pretty real.

We went to bed at our regular weekday time of about 9 p.m. and Alvin was up about 4 a.m.

Then we were on the sofa until approximately 5:00 and he wanted to eat or at least it appeared so.

So he ate.

Then outside again.

Timer on the microwave, once, no twice but actually three times before getting up about 8:30 a.m.

Sometimes one just wants to lay down and rest and dream.

Right.

Alvin well I guess he sleeps all day or I assume he does because I am at work and do not know for certain.

Now yesterday and the past couple of days may have been different because Teddy was here.

Teddy’s Dad called and came for him about 5:30 p.m. last night just after our walk and pup’s supper.

Teddy’s Mom was coming home later in the evening.

Perhaps that is why Mr. Alvin went to sleep and slept through until about 4:00 a.m.

Well anyway …. we are up and by looking at the sky I am thinking before laundry and my breakfast, perhaps a walk.

Our weather has been all over the map.

Mostly clouds and rain.

But there are breaks when we get out and go for a nice walk.

Thankfully our temperatures have not been so HOT as in Eastern Canada.

Where they have soared in the high 30’s with 40’s humidity factor.

That would be too much.

The weather channel is showing some high 20’s for next week.

I will say this our grass has never looked more green and the flowers and plants are incredible.

Last night we had a real downpour just after Teddy left and I even managed as it was coming down with hail to move my plants on the deck into some shelter.

I am hopefully that we will have sunshine in August when I am on vacation.

My sister is coming for a visit and sunshine is a must.

How about time for some photos.

I love to share photos.

Especially pretty flowers.

First photo taken yesterday morning when I was on my way to work

The pups were each laying in a chair looking out the window (well Alvin was kind of watching me take the photo).

These photos were taken this morning … just a few minutes ago.

The deck is still wet from last night’s rain.

The flowers are so vibrant and beautiful.

The grass and shrubs/plants in the back garden are growing like mad.

 

Well hopefully it will stop raining so we can mow the grass.

I have the office window open and we can some dogs barking behind us somewhere.

Alvin is getting annoyed.

 

Time to go.

Also he did not like the fact that I was trying to clean his ears earlier.

 

I hope that you have an awesome Saturday.

Perhaps something wonderful will just happen for you.

A nice surprise.

I wish that for you.

You deserve nice surprises.

 

Kindness and Respect are always the direction to take.

 

Happy Saturday.

Alvin is back on his blue blanket.

By himself.

The house is quiet once again.

We miss Teddy.

He does bring us joy.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 26th day of September, 2017.

Today is the Birthday of my Son-In-Law “S” ….. Happy Birthday Buddy.

He keeps us all on our toes, constantly challenging us to be better.

He has a good heart and is very intelligent.

A great combination.

Happy Birthday Buddy ….. Alvin and I wish you a great day.

 

Well back to work today.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day off yesterday.

Ended up cleaning and putting away most of the deck furniture and flowers pots.

Only a couple of things remain.

On our walk in the later afternoon we saw, actually Alvin saw our friend “P” working in your yard.

He can spot her a mile away.

What a guy.

We had a visit and she gave me  some plants.

So upon our return home ….. I again rearranged my back flower bed.

I think that I now have a plan.

Or at least for now.

 

Our weather is incredibly nice.

Bright sunshine …. blue skies ….. warm temperatures.

Of course not near the temps as in eastern Canada.

In parts of Ontario and Quebec the temperatures have exceeded 30 degrees celsius which is way too hot for this time of year.

Breaking all sorts of records.

I like our temperatures …. low 20’s.

Perfection.

 

Well time to put the finishing touches on before leaving for work.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: the Birthday Boy …… Love Mom & Alvin

Always, Carol & Alvin
