It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday.

The sky is overcast with slight cracks of sunlight peering through.

We had a good night sleep last night.

Alvin did not stir until 4:30 a.m. and we went to bed at 9:30 p.m.

I give Teddy much of the credit for this.

We enjoyed a walk yesterday.

Part of the day I was doing laundry and working on my photo project.

It takes a long time to go through pictures/photos.

Deleting/throwing away multiples or out of focus shots.

Sometimes the out of focus shot may be the only one that you have and you just cannot bear to part with it.

It might have been the only photo of a special person or place.

The project is massive but if I keep with it I will get it done in this lifetime.

 

I just had a refreshing shower.

Nothing like a shower to start your day.

The boys were good as they waited for me.

 

Another part of my photo project is to scan photos to the computer.

Just the single shots.

So that I have them all on my computer.

I figure by deleting the multiple shots from the computer and the out of focus or just plain bad shots, I will have room for the scanned photos.

I have wanted them in the same place for a long time.

Easier to work with and to view.

In my heart there is nothing better than to spend hours going through photos boxes.

 

Well I should get this day on the way.

Lots to do and in the afternoon we shall go for a walk.

Me and the pups.

 

I wish you a great Sunday.

Filled with kindness and respect.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin and Teddy.

Living … One day at a time.

Hello and it is a misty rainy kind of Tuesday morning.

Well finally after over one week the “Poopy Saga” or “The Poop Report” as my sister would say; is nearing an end.

I would say in the last chapter.

Yesterday I stayed home with Mr. Alvin as he was up and down all Sunday night.

After much debate and advice I started Mr. Alvin on 1/3 cup of each his wet food, chicken and white rice.

Happy to report that in the afternoon the poop is beginning to return to normal.

Still a bit away but well going in the right direction.

 

There is also some reason that Mr. Alvin does not want to do the second part of his business in the backyard.

Not sure why.

He always has up until the last few days.

So after watching him in the backyard to see if he was …. he was not.

After our breakfast and I wrote in my gratitude journal …. I donned a coat and got him ready to head outside.

We just went across the street as it is a corner lot and there is a long strip of grass that is not “directly in someone’s yard.”

Walked back and forth up and down the sidewalk for about ten minutes.

Nothing.

It is misting outside …. yup not really rain but a fine mist.

Did not feel cold out.

Back into the house and I had to have a shower and get ready for my return to work.

Yikes, I have spent more time in the last more than six weeks away from work than at work.

Between vacation and then time at home with Mr.Alvin.

Oh well, I will be busy but that is okay.

 

Last night we slept until about 12:30 and then he wanted to go outside.

So out we went.

After that we hit the sofa for the remainder of the night.

He did try his best to have me up and down but I knew he really did not need to go out.

Just a habit …. after being sick and getting used to me being at his every call.

We had a good night sleep.

Thankfully.

 

Well back to the office.

That is a whole nother story.

Some normal will be nice.

Our normals are all very much different.

 

I hope that Mr. Alvin has a great day.

I hope that I do, as well.

I wish you a great day.

 

Spreading kindness with respect is the only way to live your life.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 23rd day of June, 2o17.

Last night we had another lovely walk with our friends Sara and Presley.

Tonight my girl is picking me up from work and coming over for supper and a visit.

Excitement ensues.

Life is great.

Alvin will be happy to see his sister.

Looks like great weather for the weekend.

This morning is bright and sunny ….. YAY.

Well running a tad late …. just had to have those extra few minutes on the sofa snuggling with me Alvin.

The real reason we were up at 4:00 a.m. – right in the middle of some good sleep.

ARGH.

Oh well it is Friday.

Happy Friday.

Keep the faith ….. be cool but not COLD …… BE KIND and RESPECTFUL OF YOURSELF AND OF OTHERS.

Have an awesome Friday.

 

Special Hello to: YOU, remember you are so special.  Give yourself a hug from me.  You are the best.  Enjoy your Friday.  Do something just for you.

Always, Carol & Alvin
