Good Morning ALL! How are you on this Wednesday, September 22, 2021. Happy Birthday to Ashley. I hope that you have a great day. Today is also the first day of FALL or AUTUMN. My favourite season of all. Although I do love them all. I am so grateful that here in Alberta, Canada we still enjoy four different seasons with winter being the longest of them.

Quick update about the ongoing saga and me and Mr. Alvin. Well I won’t say that he is loving sleeping upstairs because I am not convinced at this point that he is. I do think that he actually likes sleeping on the main floor more. Not a big fan of being carried up and down the stairs. I guess things in our bedroom look different from before with the addition of some pieces of furniture from my daughter and son-in-law and the “sofa spot” that I made up of cushions/his dog bed in case he jumps from the corner of the bed. We went to bed at 9:30 ish, he was up about 12:30 so I took him outside and then back upstairs. He was up again at 3:00 and we came downstairs and settled on the sofa until almost 6:00 a.m. So the in between times seem to be getting longer. If he would just say settled/sleeping from the time that we went to bed until even 3:00, I would be a happy Momma. As I was reiterating to a friend yesterday he never used to sleep through the night anyway so for him to sleep from bedtime until 3-4 would feel like a good night sleep. Not sure what to do tonight. Last night when he was up, he was panting and when he is panting he is super anxious (as he was not hot) so I do not like him to be in that state so of course, we were up and outside. The only thing is he is heavy at 30 pounds to lug up and down the stairs at anytime but most especially in the middle of the night. Oh well, every night is a new opportunity, a chance for things to be better. I just have to keep positive thoughts and see a better outcome.

Yesterday was a good day. I accomplished lots at my job (working from home). We have been going for walks at my lunch break from work and after I am finished work. Last night after work, we got ready and were outside when our neighbour in the other half of the duplex arrived home. We hadn’t seen each other for a bit so we stopped for her to give Alvin some love & attention and to catch up. Then we were on our way to the park. When we got to the park, Alvin was so happy sniffing that I thought let’s go and see our friend Pauline. The extra walk would be good for both of us. It is not that much further beyond the entrance to the park to her house which backs onto the park. We love her and they have the best backyard. I realized as we were walking that it has been months since we have walked in the park. We missed the whole summer. Alvin happily sniffed each and every blade of grass along the way. I took in each and every leaf on the trees which are slowly beginning to change colour and any bird chirping and everything in the park along the way. I, we were in our happy place. Definitely this was something that we both needed badly. An escape from the routine and back to some semblance of our old life which seems like years ago now. When we got to her house, we did not find her in the backyard but I noticed the kitchen window open so I called up with hopes she would hear me and not loud enough to disturb any neighbours. A couple of minutes later, I heard a little voice say “Oh’s it’s Carol” and then come down the stairs to the backyard calling us to come in ….. We were both so excited to see her as we have not been to her back yard since June, 2021. I missed seeing all of her beautiful flowers. Thankfully over the summer we have seen each other when she has come to our house. This was the best medicine for us. I desperately needed that for my mental well being. A piece of what we had not that long ago. Pauline checked the gate at the top of the yard to ensure it was closed so that Alvin could come off his leash and run around the yard. His favourite thing to do. She invited us to stay for a visit. We were all so happy for this time together. We chatted and chatted. Looked at flowers. Her husband popped in to say hello and then said better let you girls visit. He is a wonderful guy. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. Oh, almost forgot to mention that Georgie, Pauline’s grandpup, a wee little dog was there visiting so he joined us as well. He spent a great deal of time on my lap. No photos of this time as I did not have my phone with me but perhaps that is a good thing as I have my memories locked in to remind me that life is good.

On our way home we bumped into another neighbor and her pup. We hadn’t seen them for a bit so we stopped and chatted making a plan to get together soon.

When we got home it was 6:30 – two hours past the time we left for our walk. A long time past Alvin’s suppertime so I fed him right away and as I got his food out of the fridge, he then realized he was hungry. What a guy.

Well time to go and put on the coffee. I love using my computer instead of the phone. Much easier.

I hope that you have a great first day of FALL. Enjoy the colours and the changes in temperatures and smells. Our tree is a lovely mix of gold and green now.

Thank you for continuing to read my blog, I so appreciate your time.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, patience, compassion, understanding, gratitude, love and laughter.

Always, Carol & Al

Good Morning All! How are you this Friday morning? I am upstairs just having finished having a refreshing shower and getting ready for the day. Even popped on some sparkly earrings. I guess by the positiveness of this post in the first few words you can tell that I actually some sleep, we actually had some sleep. Nothing near perfection when when you are running on near empty, some is better than none. I am so grateful for the sleep and grateful that today is Friday, last day of work for the week. We did not get frost at my house but I cannot speak for the rest of the City of Edmonton. Last night after work I put my Callas Lily into the garage to protect her, just in case of frost. They were forecasting the possibility of such. Mr. Alvin is quiet at the moment. I think when I leave the upstairs hall light on, he barks as once I turned it off he has remained quiet. I decided to write my post from my computer this morning. Such a difference actually typing with both hands on a keyboard as opposed to a small screen and with one finger. I am looking at my poor little plants in my upstairs office and they will need a drink of water before I head back downstairs.

I am surprised at how many leaves remain green and by the amount of yellow leaves on the ground from my tree. It is that time of year and things can change quickly. We have increased our noon walks and after work to include the entrance to the park. Sometimes we sit down on the benches, well I sit on the bench and Alvin stays on the ground. Yesterday when we went for our walks, I found his sweater so he sported a sweater on our walk. The wind was brutally cold considering it is only September. I decided to stop the early morning walks as it does not get light until later and I do not like walking in the dark. Soon it will be dark later but with working from home we can get a walk in at lunchtime and if we go right after work, we should get at least a partial walk in. When I was in my bedroom getting ready, I was dreaming of sleeping in my bed. I cannot wait until that time. Alvin’s neck appears to be healing. He cries a lot less and allows me to pick him up and put him down from the sofa and going off the deck and the front steps for our walk without fussing.

Well the time is quickly passing and it is almost time for me to head downstairs. I have to put on the coffee to perk before I start work. I am so grateful that I am able to work from home. No commute has been amazing. To be able to walk at noon and after work and some days before work. Our days are a bit longer together because of this and I am so grateful. As we age, time together is so important. Which reminds me – I need to see some of my friends. Once Alvin is able to be left alone, I will sneak out for a coffee with my girls for a couple of hours. We all need our friends. Texting is not enough. I wished that I could see my sister and my friends from back home in Regina but between Alvin’s surgeries, that financial twist, and the Pandemic, I will have to wait yet another year.

I hope that you have an awesome Friday. Looks like the sun is going to shine. That is a good thing.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love, gratitude and laughter and so much more.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Nice to be able to properly categorize my posts and use tags properly. Someone I have not figured that part out using my iPhone, guess not too smart that phone is or maybe the user. LOL.

2021

Good Morning All! Another beautiful morning and warmer than previous mornings. A couple of days ago I could see my breath in the earlier hours. We had a great sleep and today is my late work start with beginning at 11 am and working till 7 pm. Usually I am not scheduled two weeks in a row but this week I am.

I am closely watching the overnight temperatures and thinking I will bring in my geraniums tonight. I will winter them in my southern exposure kitchen window as last year. They thrive there with the warmth of the sun. Will be more moving things around as I seem to have plants everywhere. They make me happy and are good for our air quality. Plus having some actual flowers in various shades of pink throughout the winter months certainly does not hurt.

I stopped writing to go upstairs and get dressed and then we went for our ten minute round trip walk. I’m back. It is gorgeous outside. I wish this weather to stay till November. The trees are pretty green with our recent rain. The grass well that depends on what side of the street you live on but of course the rain didn’t hurt.

I was thinking last night while watching a series on Prime called Solos, I believe. The first one was with Anne Hathaway which was cool as it was about a woman who had a Mother with ALS, I believe and her desire to time travel. I don’t remember the name of the actor in the second one but it was interesting as well. I think he paid to have a clone of him to live with his wife and two children as he had only so much time left. Maybe his duplicate wasn’t a clone. Now his daughter Peg was in the next episode which was cool. Peg was 71 and travelling on a one way mission in space. She was speaking about not being noticed partially because she was scared. By the time she was ready to, it was too late. I guess the whole point is to leave it up to your imagination. Well done. I do enjoy some of the different programs on Prime. Anyway I was thinking of some of the things that Peg said and how those thoughts applied to my life and others. I often wonder why some people end up alone and others do not. Of course, I am intelligent enough to know that you have to want to be with someone and actively be in pursuit. But what about the ones that have desperately wanted someone but they were never good enough. Maybe due to religion or being divorced, maybe they had children or maybe because their Mother would not approve or maybe that right person never came along? I know people that have had these situations occur during their lifetime. Very sad. I guess you have to be specific on what you want and not go back and forth. Life is interesting and I will say that I have had one thus far. When I think back to my youth it seems like a lifetime ago. I guess it was. Well with Mr. Alvin in my life, I certainly am not alone. I am blessed to have a daughter snd son-in-law and grand pups. I have a sister and brothers. I have a great many friends and some I have known for almost my whole life. Very lucky. You can feel alone even when you are not. Sometimes I feel alone!

Well it is time to enjoy my cup of coffee before it gets cold. Maybe spend some time on the deck before work.

I hope that you are well and maybe asking those life questions? Always good to ask questions.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love and gratitude with laughter each day.

Always Carol&Alvin

Thought this was interesting and a good thing to do, cannot hurt.

2021

Good Morning All! How are you today? We are getting better with each passing day. Sure is not the way that I had planned my vacation. But that is okay. I’m not sure why I reviewed my post from yesterday but I did and found typos. Lack of sleep snd using my phone keyboard with one finger – the reasons.

Yesterday my friend Pauline called to say if I would like to have a shower or do anything that she could come over and watch Alvin. Actually it was more of a gentle order and I graciously accepted. You quickly realize how much we take for granted. Making coffee, cooking, showering and all the things we do without any thought. I had the most enjoyable shower and am so grateful. My daughter came after a busy day at work so I could look after my flowers and get the mail. This surely has been a time with no sleep, appreciating the small things like giving Alvin pumpkin so he has good poops, enjoying a cup of coffee while the boy rests and seeing friends show up offering time and ready made meals just defrost and warm. I’m so lucky and grateful.

I wanted to share a couple of quick stories. There were two times when Alvin decided he was going to sleep partially on my lap. I had a blanket across my lower body with my legs folded under snd the other time one leg under and one on the floor. Not good positions for any movement with his head and shoulders on my lap. He slept for a long time and I had to pee so bad, lol. On the other hand so happy he was sleeping.

So with each passing day he becomes stronger. The incision is healing well. He is walking but more hopping than trying to put any weight on the leg. Although he does stand on it while on the grass. He almost was running this morning. Less whining. I can tell by his eyes that he is starting to feel better. I have to keep an eagle eye on him as he has been trying to figure out how to get off the sofa. When I’m in the kitchen I bring him and he lays on one of his beds. So that works well.

Few minutes till meds.

Well time to sign off. I never thought I would spend most of my summer/ early fall in the house looking out watching people and their pups walking and doing things outside. Life can change in a split second and all you can do is make the most of it. I’m trying. Certainly is easier with some sleep. Time to watch some of the Olympics from Tokyo which is nice.

Remembering to live each day with Kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love and gratitude.

Have a great day.

Always Carol&Alvin

Good Morning ALL! I thought that I would share what my life was like on this day one year ago on July 11th, 2020. By all accounts it was definitely more active. I hope that this finds you well and enjoying your weekend. Perhaps you are watching the rerun of some of the STAR WARS movies. Always enjoy re-watching them.

From July 11th, 2020:

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.

******************

Unfortunately the only photo that copies over from the above post was the one of Alvin. I do love that one of him.

He almost always takes a great photo unlike someone I know.

So in contrast, we are not out for an enjoyable walk enjoying the sights and the smells.

We did spend some time on the deck as I was retrieving the flower pots from the garage.

By the way, the storm did not amount to much here in my neighbourhood.

I just brought the laundry upstairs, got washed and dressed and writing this post.

Alvin is downstairs and is making it know that he is not happy.

Such is my life.

Looking ahead, I am thinking that this is going to be a good memory compared to after his surgery.

Trying to keep him from moving and being able to go upstairs, do laundry, make meals, water flowers, even go to the bathroom will be an undertaking until we figure it out. I hope that the surgery goes well. Still two weeks away. Which is good and bad. Good for us and bad for him, I think.

Well he is barking and I do not wish to make him more anxious, he is the boss, so downstairs I shall go. Time to have a cup of coffee, anyway.

Thank you for sticking with us on this journey we call our lives. Not too exciting but never a dull moment.

Have a wonderful Sunday. Remember to check out the STAR WARS movies on television.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Monday morning? When Al and I were first up at 3:30 a.m. – it was dry, next time we were up at 5:30 it was overcast and the deck was wet and it was lightly raining and it continued. Until a few minutes ago the sky was grey with rain clouds but now the clouds are breaking up and I can see clear blue sky to the south. I cannot believe that the forecast had the rain starting and ending down to the hour and were correct. How is that even possible? Luck? Perhaps. It is windy. The temperature was to be 30 today but has been reduced to 29 but what is the difference of one degree? Likely won’t feel any differently.

Yesterday was a FANTASTIC day. We were up in good time. I wrote my blog, had a shower and went for a walk before my friend, S came over for a visit on the deck. We had a great visit in the sunshine. Mr. Alvin was barking and was getting warm so we moved from one side of the deck to the sofa. He laid down and I sat next to him. He settled right down. We, girls continued our visit. My friend still had some sunshine. I love my talks with my friends, I get caught up on all things children and with them. I learned so much yesterday morning. Also another thing that happened after our walk. I checked my phone to find two missed calls from our friend G, who usually comes with S for coffee and visits. Quickly called her back to find out that the “upright freezer” that I had been eyeing up at the COSTCO store where her husband works was on sale. He had not noticed and yesterday was the last day of the sale. It was a huge $60 off so I could not refuse. Lucky for me, they have a truck and could load up and bring it over to me after he was done work and that is exactly what happened. I am so grateful to have an upright freezer. Now there is no chance of me falling in and not being able to get out. For some reason I had that in my head and what would Mr. Alvin do? Would be funny for sure! Also for a second time I had groceries delivered to me. This time from Save-On Foods. They were a few minutes with their delivery but the driver called me to let me know he would be late and to make sure that okay to leave on the steps. I advised him that I would be at home and it was okay. Poor guy. Last night we watered the flowers and plants after a hot day. Yup, watered everything and everything had another good drink this morning. Thankfully it has stopped raining.

Sometimes you just never know what can happen during the course of a day.

What a day we had. Good on all fronts. I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends and family. Thank you to my daughter for ordering the groceries from Save-On to have them delivered. I tried to use the APP and had nothing but problems. My daughter to the rescue as always. So grateful to have her ….. she is good to her Momma. Sometimes technology drives me crazy.

Well looks like it is almost time to head on downstairs and put on the coffee, turn on some music, and grab Mr. Alvin’s bed from the living room and set it up in the kitchen so he can lay down there when he chooses. Usually he flip flops between the kitchen and sofa in the living room.

Too bad we could not get out for an early morning walk but to walk in the rain is not a great idea especially when there was thunder and lightning. Better to be safe. Hopefully the temperature will allow us to walk at noon. Most days we get in two walks so I guess if we miss one here and there we will be okay.

I am continuing to write the story that I started Saturday night ….. another chapter …..making more notes. Going in the right direction. So grateful for that ah ah moment.

I wish you a wonderful Monday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you this fine FOGGY here in Edmonton morning? Alvin and I are doing well although he may say something different as he is squeaking by the office door. He is getting pretty used to me jumping every time he makes a sound. My fault not his. There has been some thick fog out there this morning although it has dissipated somewhat already. I am feeling more back to my old self this morning. It is not the end of the world if we do not go with this roofing company. Sometimes if we get a “bad feeling” or experience doubt it is better to just walk away. Both myself and my neighbour had those feelings. It was not just the feelings it was the information as well. Anyway, we are on the search for another roofing company and we will find the one that is right for us. Right credentials, right products, right price. We will secure the best company for the job and for us.

Yesterday we had quite a lot of rain in the afternoon. Alvin and I managed to get a beautiful walk in over my lunch break. We even saw some of our friends over the course of our walk and stopped for a little chat. We made it back home with minutes to spare so not late for work. My flowers are doing great with all of this moisture, I think that they grew overnight. The front flower bed is coming to life and the colours are beautiful. Even my snapdragons are all starting to come up or at least I believe it is them. I love flowers, the colours and the scents.

Life is continuing along. Not much new. Just chugging along. Experiencing life as I should. Trying to keep the positive thoughts flowing and remembering that “thoughts do in fact become things.” I know this to be true.

I have recently changed my thoughts to ones of retirement, being mortgage free and new shingles on my roof. Likely would be a great idea to make a vision board to help me in my new vision.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Almost time to head downstairs, get on that pot of coffee and put on some music. I love to start my day with music now that I can.

Continuing to live each day with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love and gratitude.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

P.S. one of my neighbours spotted a pelican in one of our park “ponds” / “lakes.” I did not think we had them here in Alberta but apparently we do. I cannot wait until I see one.

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this beautiful sunny Wednesday morning? Alvin and I are doing great and we had a wonderful sleep. Great way to begin any day for sure. There is a breeze but the sun is shining. There are some dark clouds to the south of my house but to the north it is all bright blue sky. I love how it seems like I can have two kinds of weather from one end of my house to the other. Wednesday, how wonderful. Mid week and yesterday was the start of the work week. Nice have a short work week.

We walked at noon yesterday. It was almost too warm for a light jacket or sweater at one point and the rest of the time you definitely needed something covering your arms. Makes a difference if the sun goes under some clouds with the wind blowing. I am surprised at how cold the wind has been as of late. But we enjoyed the walk all the same …. checking out for the goslings who were nowhere in sight. I love seeing the spring babies.

Last night I came across two packets of flower seeds that my friend P have given me and decided that I had better get them planted. I usually don’t plant much from seed but this time I thought why not. I had room in my front flower bed and one extra pot and dirt in the garage to make another pot on the deck. The pepper plant is growing fast. I love looking out my kitchen window while I work to see all of my beautiful flowers and then when I am in the living room, I can take in my front flower bed. Flowers make me smile.

Last night I had thought of something that I should write about and now this morning I have forgotten. Note to self: pick up the phone and make a note!

Well I did sleep in a bit later cause it is cool in the house and I love to snuggle with Mr. Alvin. It is time to run downstairs, put on the coffee and get the work day started.

I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Remember it is okay to take notes. There is way too much to remember all of the time.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, gratitude and “understanding.”

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? I/We are doing well, had a fairly good sleep. That is so important. So many of us do not get enough sleep. It is reflected in everything we do. Shows up in our patience, bigtime. I hope that you had enough sleep so that you can function the way that you are meant to and that you are in your happy place this morning. Little smile on my face. Well Mother Nature gave us a good rain shower yesterday later on in the day and then overnight. Even the lawn that I share with my neighbour is beginning to come alive. I wished that I had some fertilizer to toss on as would likely give it a boost. I keep seeing one of the neighbours across the street tossing on what I imagine to be fertilizer and their grass is a beautiful lucious green. The colour that I dream of and one of my favourite shades of green, actually my top favourite green. Lawn green or Kelly green. This morning the sky is overcast so no beautiful sunrise but we do desperately need the moisture and I am grateful for the rain. Does not appear to be windy which is a good thing.

I was thinking of my dear friend Les N. who came into my mind last night as I was going to sleep. He was giving me support,as always. Les passed away a few years ago and I think of my dear friend often. He was a good friend, husband, father, son, uncle and human being. I miss him all of the time.

Often times we do not realize what we have, until it is gone.

I am most happy that Alvin and I had two walks yesterday, one at lunchtime and the other after work. Walking sure brings down my stress level after a long day of work. The benefits of walking are so important in our everyday life.

I see red flashing lights through the leaves of the tree directly behind my garage across the lane, must be the garbage truck.

Well today is Tuesday. Another day of work. I hope that you are doing well and that this day brings us all great joy, much laughter and love and abundance. This could be the day. Perhaps there will be a knock at the door and you won the Publishers Clearing House Lottery or something like that. Maybe someone left you a thoughtful package at the door. A phone call from family or a dear friend. A special coffee and lunch delivered to you from a thoughtful friend. This is going to be that day …… are you excited, I am!

Continuing to live this day with respect, kindness, compassion and patience.

Time for coffee.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning ALL! Welcome to a grey windy WET Saturday morning. Both Alvin and I are grateful for the moisture as it is so terribly dry out there. We hope that some of this rain is coming down in the areas affected by the wildfires and helping to extinguish them. I also hope that the winds there are calm. Definitely not as windy at this moment as it was yesterday and the night before as it felt as though we would blow away house and all.

Alvin and I were disappointed when Teddy and Kobi did not come over yesterday for the day. Their parents were going to paint the rental unit and with the rain they would not be able to keep the windows opened. My friend has asthma. So perhaps next Tuesday. Looks like the rain is settling in for this day at least. Tomorrow is supposed to be partial cloudy/sunny, I think. We did not go for a walk between the wind and start of the rain yesterday. Does not look like a walking day for us today either. As this is laundry day we will get in several hundred steps going up and down three flights of stairs. Up and down and down and up this day. LOL.

Last night I was watching a recorded favourite show of mine and it was running past our usual bedtime. Next thing I knew Mr. Alvin was standing at the bottom of the stairs and just glaring at me. I understood and as the show was in the final couple of minutes I watched it and then quickly turned off the television, grabbed my phone charger from the kitchen counter, my glass of water and phone and headed upstairs where now Alvin was waiting for me. What a guy. He is truly a “routine” kind of creature. I do understand that. He has also been sitting by the side of the sofa that faces the fireplace and staring into the glass doors looking at his reflection. Sometimes he growls, whines or barks. Odd, that he has only now in the past few weeks realized this in all the years that we have lived together. What a guy!

Well time to head on downstairs, we have had another one of our up and down early mornings. I don’t know why I even mention them anymore as this is my life/our life. Every night and every morning. Nothing new here.

Time to get the coffee perking and laundry going.

Tomorrow my family is coming for Mother’s Day. I am going to cook an early supper.

On the Menu:

Tomato, Caramelized Onions with Lentil Pasta

Homemade Black Bean Burgers used kind of as a Meatball

Green Peas

Corn

Garlic Chili Scone/Biscuits

Homemade Brownies for dessert

This is a Vegetarian almost Vegan meal.

I am using butter in the Biscuits/Scones otherwise would be Vegan.

Sounds yummy to me.

I cannot wait to serve this to my family.

I am going to make the black bean burgers today as a trial run. The pasta I made last weekend and it was so good.

Brownies is a new recipe.

Well time to go. Wishing you a wonderful Saturday. I am going to do laundry, wrap a gift for my daughter for Mother’s Day and do some writing. I was inspired last night as I prepared for bed.

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

Always, love Carol & Alvin
