It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 25th day of January, 2020.

Last night my daughter gave me a ride home from work.

I always enjoy our rides and visits, catching up.

Cannot believe that we have already been in the newly renovated old office for one full work week.

 

Today, this morning, in about two hours; the pups Teddy (Alvin’s BF) and Kobi (his little sister) are coming to stay with us for one week.

Mom & Dad are going to Mexico for a vacation.

We are excited to have them stay with us and I am a little afraid of the unknown, like our first night together.

Kobi sleeps in her own “condo” at home which is basically their front entranceway.

Their front entranceway is like a room with a door so it is easy to block it off.

I borrowed a metal enclosure so that I could set it up and put her bed and things inside.

It will go in the kitchen which is the biggest area on the main floor.

I will set it up after supper tonight.

Apparently she chews baseboards and stuff.

The stuff I know as she took my shoes from the back door and was going to chew on them.

Alvin never did that although I will say that when I adopted him he was closer to a year old.

But he did always have hold of my pant leg.

Perhaps it was for fear that I would leave or just anxiety.

Puppy power.

So many things we never think of but Kobi’s new parents are learning with each passing day.

Last time she was here, there were three pooping accidents, so eyes need to be open and paying attention.

Which I did think we were but apparently not.

My hope that is Mr. Alvin sleeps through the night otherwise it could be several early mornings.

Tonight will be the test.

I surely hope it goes smoothly.

I love these little guys but need to have sleep.

So please Mr. Alvin no repeat of last night, er, this morning.

Looks like a nap later this morning.

Well life is full of lessons and learning.

I am excited to have that little bundle of fur spending time with us.

She is so full of energy and happy.

There will be three juggling for a spot beside me.

Good thing that Kobi will be sleeping downstairs (she has been used to that since the first weeks she came to live with Teddy and his family).

She likes having her own condo, her own space.

Teddy and Alvin like to sleep with me.

So that all works out, just fine.

 

Well time to go and change bedding, get dressed, gather towels and get that laundry going.

Today will be quiet.

We have spent a day together so this is not new.

 

Our friend, Alvin’s girlfriend’s Mom is going this afternoon for a visit.

Feel so sad about losing Miss Abby.

I am now spelling her name correctly.

I apologize for the wrong spelling in prior posts.

Past coworkers and friends are coming to visit tomorrow afternoon.

We are going to visit and have a round or two of JENGA.

So excited to see them.

Time for some puppy love.

One person for each pup.

That works out well.

 

Well I hope that all is well.

If I have a day that I cannot get to the post, please forgive me.

I will do my best.

 

Have an awesome day.

So happy this weather is mild.

The pups can be in the backyard for a bit.

We can go for walks.

 

Happy Saturday.

Fill it with kindness and respect.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the Day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 19th day of November, 2015.

Another morning waking up to brown/green ground.

YAY …. for the 19th of November that is great.

I heard that the white stuff is everywhere outside our City … but not here.

For now.

I am going to enjoy it.

So nice being able to wear shoes or else boots but not slipping and sliding as you carefully plod along.

 

To answer the question …. still no.

Our unwanted guest still eludes us.

I will remain patient and hopeful.

SOON.

Perfection would be that it has gone back outside.

 

This morning back upstairs with my lemon water, breakfast, and gratitude journal.

Decided to just have breakfast in my office so I can relax with no shoes on my feet.

I am much more at ease upstairs although I do not wish to live my life on the upper floor of my house, that would be ludicrous.

However, I am doing much better than the first time they came into our home.

I spent three days and nights at my daughter’s house.

So this is definitely conquering my fears somewhat.

 

Well this week has been all about being Happy and being Kind.

How did we do thus far?

Feeling better about life?

Did you do a random act of kindness above and beyond your normal routine?

We have two days left this week to feel more Happy than usual and to go that extra distance with Kindness.

How about it?

I would love to hear from you.

We need to start a planetary movement.

BE HAPPY AND LOVE YOURSELF.

BE KIND AND RESPECTFUL TO YOUR NEIGHBOURS, YOUR FELLOW HUMANS AND EVERY CREATURE ON THE PLANET. 

STARTING NOW. GO ……

 

Happy Thursday ….

Special Hello to: my sister …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S.

Just had to add this note.  After I wrote this blog and went into my bedroom, I opened the blinds and what did I see?

The white stuff all over the ground.

Guess it decided to snow less than half an hour after we got out of bed.

We officially have snow.

It may not last …..

Who knows.
