It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

Welcome to a snowy Saturday morning.

What happened to the beautiful sunrise?

What happened to the clear blue sky?

What happened to the feeling of spring?

Feels like winter will never end.

That feeling of dread.

Is that because we are all feeling that things will never end?

That our way of life has somewhat changed forever.

It is a possibility.

Some things will never be the same, that is likely.

Perhaps it is ?

You know how your thoughts become things?

Right.

Perhaps we all collectively need to change our “thoughts.”

We can do this.

 

Everyone close your eyes.

Visualize a bright sunny day.

The air is warm.

You are out walking in your sandals or running shoes.

You are wearing a light sweater and comfortable pants maybe even shorts.

The slightest whisper of a breeze lands on your cheeks providing a cooling effect.

You have your sunglasses on because it is nice and bright.

As you become closer to the entrance to the park, the fragrance of wild roses overtakes your senses.

You just have to stop and take in that wonderful aroma as it tingles every part of your nose.

The shade of green that colours the grass makes you feel happy.

As you walk you have this feeling that life is great.

You just want to dance.

You are feeling joyful and safe and filled with gratitude.

Your little dog walks ahead of you at the full length of the leash.

He is loving life as he sniffs about.

Life is perfect.

You are feeling glorious.

This is the perfect day.

 

This is the perfect day.

 

Wishing you the most perfect day.

We can do this.

We have got this.

We can change this ……

We are the world…..

 

Happy Saturday.

 

Time to get dressed, changed bedding, gather the laundry, have breakfast, perhaps do some shovelling (forgot about the driveway during the last snowfall, argh).

There are things to do.

One of the television stations (old school) is playing some of the JAMES BOND movies today.

The ones with Daniel Craig.

At least two of them for sure.

Wishing you a grand day.

Be safe and in good health.

Remember to eat some oranges and broccoli.

Go for a walk if you are able OR do some stretches.

 

I/We are with you,

In kindness and with respect,

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

P.S.  answering the after hour calls last night from 4-7 p.m. went went.  I was answering with a couple of lads from the office and we made a great team.

A friend brought me groceries yesterday.

Life is good.

Forgot story from last night.

Two lads walking down the sidewalk across the street from my house.

Dressed in onesies ….. full length ….. like baby sleepers.

One was leopard print and the other a bright green.

Not sure where they were going or what they were thinking.

It definitely make me smile.

AND

There was a bunny in the yard across the street from us.

Alvin was situated in his chair looking out the window at the bunny.

A German Shepherd and his female pack leader came walking around the corner.

The dog got wind of the bunny.

Hilarity ensued.

The gal was pulled by this huge dog over a snowbank and onto the street.

She was holding on for dear life.

The bunny of course, gone.

Once they were out of site.

The bunny was back.

Bunny came across the street and was eating when my neighbour who feeds the bunnies.

Came out and started to put out some food for them.

The bunny left to the safety of across the street.

As soon as she was gone into her house.

Bunny was back.

Alvin enjoyed the show.

The photos were all taken from behind the blinds.

 

 

Happy Days.

 

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Well we are in the midst of a heat wave.

Yesterday was 29 degrees celsius not including the HUMIDEX and today will be 37 with the HUMIDEX.

YIKES.

We were going for a walk at 5:00 a.m. but ended up going at 5:15 a.m. – waited until it was a slight bit more light outside.

The walk was great.

No time for changing so I threw on a longer coat over my nightgown and out we went.

We only saw one guy with his young HUGE German Shepherd dog.

The doggie was so full of energy …. he just wanted to play.

The boys said hello, Alvin was not impressed with the energy level.

He sniffed and sniffed as we made our way around our usual route.

Even walked through a small rain shower.

We saw Teddy’s Dad leaving for work.

Home by 5:45 a.m. …. so am rushing a bit, I will say.

But how glorious …. an early morning walk.

The air was still cool.

Opened the windows before when we first got up at 3:00 a.m. ….. it was Alvin this time.

Oh well, that is what happens when you have two “seniors” on the premises.

Time is clicking away ….

I am so congested from the humidity that I could not smell the gorgeous ROSES that line the walk by the park.

Alvin gave them a sniff.

 

Sorry … just having a sneezing fit.

Well looks like time to get this show on the road.

I hope that you enjoy this Tuesday.

Nice to have the sunshine and warmer temps and I hope that you are comfortable.

 

Always be kind and respectful.

I have to remind myself as sometimes we can go in another direction.

Happy Tuesday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
