2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this fine Saturday morning. Alvin and I are doing well and have been up for hours. We have already been for a walk, watered all of the flower beds and flower pots and did some yard work. I wanted to get in all of the outdoor work before the heat sets in for the day. I really am enjoying our early morning walks. Other than two people out for a walk we were the only ones. Surprised that folks with pups were not out for a walk but perhaps they were out even earlier. Alvin really loves his new travel water dish and usually drinks the whole bottle on each of our walks. I put the coffee on to perk while I am writing this post. Lots to do this Saturday. After this post, coffee and breakfast followed by changing and preparing to give Mr. Alvin a haircut and bath. His hair is not really long but in this next week heat wave a shorter cut will be better for him. Then of course, there is laundry and I think in the heat of the day we will be in the basement. My daughter and son-in-law gave us a leather love seat which fits perfects in the family room in the basement so we have a place to sit for my, lay for Alvin and watch a movie and just hang out and be cool. I have some rearranging to do in the basement so perfect time when it is hot outside. The fans on the main floor keep the temperature at about 80 which seems hot but isn’t too bad. I am not a heat person by any stretch of the imagination. Not at all.

Last night we went to one of our neighbors and hung out in their beautiful backyard. It really is gorgeous. First thing that Alvin does is to roll around on the grass as it is cool and thick unlike ours. He really loves this couple as do I and we always have such a great visit. Laughing and sharing news and information. Alvin made sure that he sniffed every part of the yard. He was fixated on something in one of her flower beds and surprisingly enough lifted his paws as not to squash any of the flowers. We were shocked. It was an deliberate action. What a guy!

Well this is going to be short as I have to get going and get Alvin’s haircut done. At least the fans will help. I need that cup of coffee and perhaps some toast before starting.

I am grateful to have fans for us to be cool. Not much housework this weekend. Thankfully I usually keep things tidy and clean so really not much to do. I am grateful that we were able to go for a nice walk earlier. The roses smelled amazing and the birds singing their morning songs. So beautiful out.

I hope that you have an awesome Saturday. Keep cool and safe. Enjoy the weekend.

Living this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, understanding and gratitude.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning All. How are you on this 2nd day of January, 2021? I am doing well. Again, up a bit later than I would have liked but I have to stop feeling guilty as when the body and mind are in tune and want to do something that is when it gets done. What can you do? The morning sky is now bright and sunlit. Seems to go from darkness to light quickly as the days begin to lengthen. Alvin and I are enjoying our time at home on my “work break” and will enjoy our time at home when “works begins.” I am still in disbelief that I have now been working from home for nine months and come March 19th, it will be a whole year. WOW. I am so grateful that this is my new norm.

Everyday you wake up is an opportunity for change, to be better, to learn more, in essence to grow, to take chances, to dream, to live. Food for thought.

Something that I must learn and fair quickly as it has been a bit of time since the changes were made to WordPress is to learn all those changes. I realized that I should have written down how to find the photo gallery as yesterday I looked and could not find it. Sometimes I wonder when things change if it is for the better. Sometimes I think that people change things firstly because they can and for the sake of change. Trust me it is not always necessary to change things. Keeping things simple is always important especially when you have a broad range of technically savvy folks using your programs. Just saying. Putting it out there to the Universe. Am I alone in this? I am 63 and I know for a fact that I am not the most tech savvy person on the planet nor am I the least tech savvy person either. I have learned so many things this past year working from home thanks in large part to my daughter, to my friend Signe, and to our systems staff, most especially “M” at “work.” All have tremendous patience with me and that is what I need in order to learn. Once I know something – generally I am good. I like to take notes to refer to for those days when instant recall is not working. Besides our brains are overloaded with information and sometimes those tidbits cannot be located in amongst the massive amount of other tidbits lodged in there. My thought anyway. I also know that we only use a small amount of our brain power but is it in connection with memory? That I am not certain. Anyway, I will figure things out, I usually do. Sometimes it takes me longer as I get frustrated and give up. How did I get on this topic. I seldom plan what I can going to write about and just go with whatever comes to my mind. Sometimes it may seem frivolous and other times it may be worthy of writing about. It is what it is. I also like to make people laugh. So perhaps along the way you giggle at my “frivolity” of thoughts.

Well today is Saturday – good old laundry day in this household. I love doing laundry actually – it is the carrying up and down of said laundry two flights of stairs that I am not fond about. Every time I feel less than impressed about the up and down, I think back to the days when I was a child and did laundry for seven people using a wringer washing machine and then hung the clothing, sheets, towels (everything) on the clothesline outside. Later in my youth we did get a dryer but still used the wringer washing machine.

P.S. how many know used a wringer washing machine?

I managed to give Mr. Alvin a haircut and bath yesterday although looking at his front paws and the back of his front legs, I wonder. What a guy. I spent over two hours trying to calmly, gently and reassuringly give him a haircut. He does not like it and I guess it is not going to get any easier over time as he ages. Oh well, I did my best at the time. Over the next days I will grab the scissors and trim a piece here and there until it is better.

Well I suppose it is time to get dressed and go check on the first load of laundry. Yes, I put on the first load after I hauled my butt up off the sofa about an hour ago. Wow, it is now 9:42 a.m., time just seems to fly. I think because work is now only today and tomorrow away. But perhaps getting back to “norm” will be okay. What is normal anyway? Different for most people, I suppose.

Enjoy your Saturday. If you have an opportunity to go for a walk, go and enjoy nature. It is true to take the “time to stop and smell the roses.” Alvin does every time we are out – except he is not exactly smelling roses, lol. Although in the summer he does stop and smell them. Gotta love my boy.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect and compassion for all. We all deserve to be treated with kindness, respect and compassion, ALL creatures big and small.

Always, Carol & Alvin

December 28, 2020 – close to a New YEAR

Good Morning ALL. Well we sure seem to be sleeping in although we are up earlier and then keep hitting the “snooze button” and returning to the sofa. The sky is most pretty this morning as the sun rises. It is filled with ribbons of blue and pinks and yellows. No visible wind. Looks like another beautiful day. Alvin and I went for a great walk yesterday afternoon. Not quite melting weather but single digits below zero, which cannot complain about this time of year. Today I am going to try on frames for my new glasses. I am excited and nervous as it will be much different than usual. They make appointments to do this, I am not sure exactly how much time I will have to pick them out as I forgot to ask that question when I had my eyes checked and realized that you had to make another appointment. Oh well, I will soon find out. My appointment is for 1:00 p.m. – I might see if I am able to text photos of me in the frame to show my daughter for advice. I am not sure how they have this all set up. I can see the sun starting to brighten up the eastern horizon. How rude of me, I forgot to ask how you are doing? Are you back to work or are you enjoying some extra well deserved time off? I am enjoying the later as our office closes for the time between Christmas and New Year’s. I have decided that I am going to take down the decorations and tree starting tomorrow as it takes a couple of days or so to do this. Big job. I want to have some days before I go back to work that are relaxing. Oh, who am I kidding? For the first time in my life, I am ready to have everything down and ready to bring in the New Year. I have taken down the Christmas decorations or at least started on New Year’s Eve but I cannot remember the last time that I had everything down and put away before New Year’s Eve ….. I don’t think it has ever happened. Perhaps some of my family and friends will remember? Anyway, I think that as this has been such a tangled, unbelievable, no word description of a year that I am going to start the NEW YEAR doing something different. Why not. I may give Mr. Alvin a haircut on the weekend. He needs more food so I will be making a trip to the Vet with on my way home from picking out frames or else will pop over there tomorrow. Likely tomorrow.

Wishing our neighbour and Humphrey’s and Bogart’s Momma a very Happy Birthday. She is feeling under the weather so wishing her a speedy recovery.

Nice to see the sun shine early in the day.

To my daughter and son-in-law as I do not remember who gave me which book, I started reading one of them last night and using my new magnetic bookmark (such a great invention). The book is good. Do not remember the title. Yesterday I wrote in my Christmas Card book – all of the lovely and thoughtful gifts that I received for Christmas 2020. Definitely spoiled this year.

I also went through the freezer and packed up a large container with baking – texted first – then delivered to a family who lives two doors down. I thought what Mom of four has time for much baking and I had so much and I certainly do not need any more. We had a quick visit with me on the sidewalk and her on the porch.

I hear a plane go in for a landing but the airport is 25 minutes away OR perhaps it is a big big truck on the highway. Not sure which but loud. LOL.

Well time to go and get changed and cleaned up. Perhaps I will put on some makeup today as I am going out. Might be a good thing when trying on frames.

Wishing you all a great Monday, December 28, 2020. The New Year is right around the corner and I have a feeling that although it may start off slow meaning we are not going to be rid of this virus as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. Actually more than a feeling. My wish for the New Year is for people to listen to the Health Care Professionals. Wear Masks. Social Distance. Stay home. Wash your hands. If you think about it and I know that there were families out there that got together for the holidays not heeding the restrictions set out by the Government / advice by Health Professionals that the new cases are going to once again rise. Was it worth it? I will never understand the reasons why some people may think that it was a necessity to get together for Christmas. I would rather be alone and have another Christmas to celebrate than get together and then have someone die or me.

Sometimes we have to say something.

2021 is going to start quiet. We are going to listen. Christmas 2021 will be spectacular.

Well time to get this show on the road. Argh, almost 9:30. Where does the time go?

Have a great day. Be safe.

Living with kindness, respect and compassion.

Happy Monday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Oh, Good Sunday Morning.

The sky is overcast and there is a breeze here as I look out my window.

Again, finding it difficult to get out of bed.

Again, up early.

Mr. Alvin woke up at 2:30 so downstairs we went.

He suffers when it is damp outside.

Arthritis in his little legs.

I was thinking as he was shaking his head that maybe he has an ear infection OR

perhaps he has an allergy to something.

I know that my first grand pup Elton used to have allergies.

While we were up …. outside for a pee …. him not me …. doesn’t that always help.

Then I gave him one of his glucosamine chews and a few minutes the last pain pill that we have on hand.

Now he does not have some pain meds from last time but they are pretty strong and I don’t want to give him them unless Vet says okay to do so.

The one I gave him this morning is one that he can have when needed.

I will keep a close eye on his ears.

When my daughter comes this morning for a pancake breakfast followed by hair cut for the boy …. I will see what she thinks.

Probably a good idea for me to cut back on the extras like pea pods, strawberries, blueberries and carrots.

I will just give him banana and his own food and treats for the next while and see if that helps.

Also I note that when his paws / legs bother him he does shake his head and of course licks his paws quite often.

I feel so badly for the little guy.

If he needs to go before his next appointment, he will go.

I will need to go and pick up food this week so will ask when I do so.

He is resting on his little bed that I have made for him in my office.

Two thick towels and two blankets.

Folded up just for him.

 

Well guess what?

I started washing/cleaning the window blinds.

Yesterday afternoon, I washed the living room blinds, moved the chairs by the window, vacuumed and washed the living room floor.

I just vacuumed the kitchen as will want to wash once Alvin’s haircut is finished.

Oh, I watered the flowers last night and shortly after we went to bed and I had just closed the window and it started to rain.

Wouldn’t you know it – I left the cushions out on the deck furniture !!

Oh well.

I did most of the laundry and cleaned the upstairs.

We had a nice walk in the afternoon.

Argh, I am seeing the odd mosquito has made its’ way into the house.

 

I made the COD dish from GOOD FOOD last night for supper, it was very yummy.

Two more to make.

I have to make one tonight and one tomorrow and then will have leftovers for couple of nights.

Works out well.

 

Sometimes I like to look back to see what was happening on this day last year.

I am so grateful to have this blog so that I can do that.

I do keep a gratitude / journal but to see what happened last year this day would mean locating the journal.

I think if you have a computer or laptop – it is well worthwhile keeping an online journal.

It is history in the making.

This is from this day day September 6th, 2019.

It would appear that things were different.

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

Hi,  well this has been one of the longest and at that the same time shortest weeks of my life.

Each day wrapped in what felt like a time capsule.

Moment to moment filled with hope.

Hope for a good healthy “poop.”

Really, I have never or not recently hoped for someone to have a good healthy poop.

Yes, I do remember wanting needing to have a good one for myself…. LOL.

Each day, every time that we go outside, I say to Alvin “please have a good poop.”

This whole week has been wrapped up and around “poop.”

Not really funny or humorous but at the same time how can you not smile.

So much of our lives … okay all of our lives revolve around having a good daily healthy poop.

We write about it …. doctors journal about it and test it ….. we think about it daily.

It is necessary for a good healthy life.

Yes, it does.

I cannot believe that we, I have been home with Alvin for a whole week filled with eager anticipation around a bowel movement.

But alas I have.

Still no “good poop” today so we have another appointment with the Vet for blood-work.

Argh, I was ever so hopeful that it would have happened and we would not have come to this point.

I cannot believe that he has not had a good poop yet.

He jumps onto the sofa, sniffs when we are outside, happily eats his chicken & rice meals, drinks water and pees.

You would not know upon looking at him that there is anything wrong with him.

In all of the nine years that we have been together he has never had diarrhea for this length of time.

We started the medications on Tuesday late afternoon and I had high hopes that yes, he would have had a good “BM” by now.

Perhaps he can feel my frustration and anxiety.

I feel badly that I have left my coworkers with extra work to do for a whole week only one week after returning from vacation.

I feel guilty that I cannot magically make Alvin better.

I feel guilty that despite my days at home that I have not really done anything …

Well I have looked after my boy.

We have walked, I have cooked for him and put salve on his bum.

I am available to jump on a moment’s notice to go outside …..

Well our appointment is for 3:30 p.m. so as I am a glass half full kind of gal …. I am hoping for a miracle …..

Time will tell.

 

Alvin has remained patient …. more than me during this whole ordeal.

Considering it is his insides that are not functioning properly.

Considering that his life has been turned upside down for the past week.

Missing his friends …..

But that is me Alvin ….. always surprising me.

 

Quick little story to share before I sign off.

Yesterday morning while we were outside with hopes for some bottom end action, the good kind.

Something flew above us and landed on the railing on the deck.

I ducked while squinting in the bright sunshine to see what it was …. I was pretty certain it was not a bird.

In seconds I realized that it was a bat.

I have been carrying my phone with me to take “poop photos” here and there.

Okay I know, crazy poop lady.

That will be a handle that I will not soon lose that is for sure …..

While the bat was busy on the railing ….. I called out to my neighbour ….

Quickly made sure that Alvin was out of the way (into the house).

I managed to capture some video.

I did not see the face of the bat clearly due to the bright sunlight but definitely could see the wings when it landed and was about to fly away.

Never been that close to a bat.

It was small and we thought it was a baby or young bat for sure.

My neighbour thought perhaps it was injured but we could not tell for certain.

It was definitely trying to get out of the sunlight.

I had the umbrella open on the deck and it flew underneath.

At one point it actually was hanging upside down.

After opening the kitchen window …. the baby got active once again and flew away.

We figured that it was in my neighbour’s tree.

Later on I sent the videos to my kids and they replied with a phone number for Animal Control – with the Bat link.

So I decided to call just to ask some questions and was happy that I had called.

The guy on the phone just happened to be the “bat guy” …. yes, he was.

He said that the adult bats have already left for caves and other spots but the juveniles are still about trying to get their bearings.

Some may fly into an object and then be confused or could be sick or horror among horrors be rabid.

He said under no circumstances to get near to it and to keep my dog away as well.

He also said to watch when taking my dog to the backyard for a brown patch on the grass as it might be the bat.

ARGH.

Anyway, I have been examining the grass and the deck every time we go outside, just in case.

No baby bat.

I do hope that it survived and found its’ way to a safe place.

Also I learned if you happen to get near the bat and see that it is agitated or making clicking noises …. signs that it may be rabid so GET AWAY and call him.

So even at home waiting for poop to happen we have had visitors.

 

Well time to get back downstairs once again.

Time to sweep the floor and do a couple of things before we leave for the Vet.

Time for one more small meal for Mr. Alvin.

He has been eating four small meals each day.

Also he just passed some gas.

Not great.

Oh, my poor boy.

This has been the week for sure.

 

Showing kindness and respect to all creatures is important.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Okay, no complaints.

Just as I was about to say that the weather was different from last year …. the sun has peeked out from behind the cloud cover.

I am so grateful to have a computer and be able to write this blog most days.

Of course, some days life gets in the way making it impossible but for the most part I have written this blog everyday for the last ten years.

Time has a way of slipping away so we have to make the most of it while we can.

This morning I am exciting to make some “pannie cakes” for my girl and catch up with her and to give MR. Alvin a haircut.

I think after all that excitement I will work on deleting the out of focus and duplicate shots from my phone and computer.

OR perhaps clean the kitchen blinds and then the main floor would be done.

Who would ever have thought that I would be working from home ….

This year has brought some amazing changes.

 

Okay time to fly here.

Get dressed … what to wear !!

Perhaps we will go for a walk now before my daughter arrives and before I make the pancakes.

I always like to have them made and warming in the oven.

I want to have coffee but realized that my coffee is in short supply and do not wish to run out before the next COSTCO trip.

But perhaps if I make only one cup …. or two.

I could drink tea in the mornings, too.

By the way, how is our FALL CLEANUP 2020 challenge going?

I have been deleting emails as I can access email on my phone.

I have also deleted some photos from my phone but really later this afternoon I am going to delete some from my computer.

 

Wishing you a great Sunday.

Life is always filled with hope.

You just have to be open to it.

Living with Kindness and Respect,

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & her Alvin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 25th day of July, 2017.

Yay, we are back to sunshine but am grateful for the rain.

Well the rainy day of Monday is over and all the trees, grass and plants got some much needed moisture.

I only hope that all the areas affected by fires get some RAIN.

 

So many birthdays this month and next …..

I missed one of my first cousins yesterday …. Happy Birthday “L.”

I am countdown mode to my birthday which happens to include a 10 day …. yes, TEN DAY visit from my sister and SEVERAL day visit from my youngest brother.

Best Birthday EVER, I am thinking.

To add to this I am on vacation for a couple of weeks.

So excited to spend time with all of my siblings.

 

I was shocked at how fast the house cooled down.

It was 69 degrees celsius in the house when I got home from work last night and 68 this morning.

Poor Alvin was thanking his Momma for not giving him a hair cut last weekend (post phoned it until this Friday night).

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

Just feeling so grateful at this time.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks celebrating a birthday in July.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 4th day of May, 2017.

What a gorgeous morning outside.

I had planned this weekend to work hard and get everything or most items done on Saturday so that Alvin and I could take a walk to one of the “northern parks.”

It was our “spring, early summer” adventure before it gets too hot.

So yesterday after four hours Alvin had another haircut and bath.

OMG, I had even more anxiety than he had by the third hour….. if he would just let me know it ….. the haircut would be over in likely about one hour.

After that, it was six loads of laundry, mowed the front lawn including my neighbours that we share and the back, weeded by the garage on both sides, vacuumed upstairs and main floor, cleaned two out of the three

bathrooms, made pizza for supper and made chocolate pumpkin muffins ….. and then crashed.

We did not even go for a walk ….. we both were done.

So this morning after getting up ….. having breakfast ….. got dressed and headed out.

We spent about two hours outside walking and even sat down at the North park on one of the benches.

I placed Alvin on my lap and we sat there enjoying the cool breeze.

WHERE ARE THE GEESE?

Then we  saw some two geese and a gosling managed to snap some photos.

Bear in mind some are a bit shaky as I was holding Mr. Alvin who was sniffing and investigating on his leash, the camera, and his bottle of water.

So it was tricky to say the least.

As I was trying to take some photos of the geese with the goslings – a lady stopped and held Alvin while I quickly snapped some photos.

Also I had to keep stopping to delete some old photos.

Note to self:  time to buy a new memory card.

I always download the photos but I do not like to delete them all.

It was fun …..

Mr. Alvin wanted to come home even before we got past the middle park.

But I pushed him to go further.

We stopped for several water breaks (for Mr. Alvin).

I carry water for him but not for me.

So here are the photos that we took on our little adventure and then I need COFFEE

 

The geese are the first ones that we saw.  These photos are from what I nicknamed the “Northern Park.”

 Oh, the goslings were so cute.  Two adult geese were watching over the gaggle of goslings.  I could not count how many there were …….

Wild roses ….. the fragrance filled the air.  The roses by our park are not blooming ….. I hope they do.

Okay time for that coffee which has been brewed for several minutes now.

Ready to kick back and relax.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: all those nature lovers …… nothing better than a walk with trees, geese, roses and a cool breeze and Mr. Alvin, of course.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 3rd day of June, 2017.

It was bright and sunny with a bit of a breeze this morning and now the sky seems to be filled with scattered clouds.

So we shall see.

Yesterday was a rainy day until about supper time.

Alvin and I managed to get a walk in after supper and the evening remained beautiful.

Mr. Alvin is about to have a haircut and bath as soon as I am done here.

My first job is to give him a haircut, bath and clean his ears and double check to ensure he has no TICKS.

I have been checking after each walk but have to make doubly sure.

The front lawn, back lawn and by the garage are filled with those beautiful little yellow flowers er, weeds, we call “dandelions.”

So I have to figure out some way of getting rid of them that does not call for poisons that are bad for animals, the environment and wallet.

There is no way to dig them out.

They just got crazy after this last round of rain.

So lots to to do.

I will keep busy this weekend.

 

Hopefully tomorrow Alvin and I can walk over the one of the parks north of us and check out the baby geese.

I see them every morning on the bus ride to work.

I would like to get some photos of them.

WISH me luck.

But that is for tomorrow.

I would like to go first thing tomorrow morning if it is sunny …..

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

Food for thought:  Stay within your budget and keep old friends close.

 

Happy Saturday Everyone.

Special Hello to: my family and friends ……

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 10th day of May, 2016.

It is bright and sunny outside this morning.

COOL.

That is the word for today.

Our house is freezing and poor Alvin has been shivering as have I but to turn on the furnace at this point seems a waste.

So we are wrapped in blankets and have been snuggling.

I guess if the temperature is supposed to continue to be this low over night I will have no choice but to turn on the furnace.

This is the time that I wished Mr. Alvin had a sweater.

I guess poor timing with the hair cut.

Oh well we will survive.

Almost time to leave for work.

We both were snuggling extra time under the blankets this morning.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day.

I guess the question is:  OFF or ON?

Special Hello to: my faraway friends and family.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 6th day of April, 2015.

Easter Monday ……

I have the day off from the office and am just getting ready to go and have brunch with my neighbour and friend.

The sun is shining with a slight cloud cover.

How exciting I have had two days off in a row.

I am sure enjoying my time at home.

It is just the beginning.

Alvin looks so handsome with his new haircut.

He is all nice and clean after his bath.

Looks like a new puppy …..

That’s my guy.

Last night I made a big supper of vegetarian meatballs, mashed potatoes, huge salad with apple crisp for dessert.

We have so much leftover … no cooking this evening.

So I am going to enjoy brunch with my friend.

I am going to enjoy a bit later a nice long walk with Mr. Alvin.

Quiet evening watching a bit of television.

Well time to go.

I hope that you all are having a great Monday.

I will be back tomorrow.

Special Hello to: my family and friends ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 5th day of April, 2015.

Happy Easter.

The sun is shining here in Edmonton on my first official day not working at Bath & Body Works.

Yesterday’s shift was bittersweet.

My shift was from noon until 8:00 p.m.

Over the course of the day I said good-bye to my friends ….. some I have worked with for almost four years others not as long.

I shall miss them all.

There were hugs and tears.

I received email addresses and phone numbers so that I may keep in touch.

There is a group of us that meet at Bath & Body Works and we shall get together from time to time.

It seems weird not getting ready to go to work at the store but I am so excited to begin this next chapter in my life.

Everyone enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies and card that I made.

I shall miss meeting people and all of the fragrances, too.

 

Our office had voluntary lay-offs so it has doubled my work load.

So this will be easier for me only having “one job” so to speak.

Now I shall have time to visit my friends on a regular basis and to do all of the things that I have been either putting off or doing occasionally.

So on this Sunday …. my plan is to do laundry and give Mr. Alvin a much needed haircut and bath.

 

If you are on the fence about making chances …. just do it.

Sometimes it is scary but at the end of the day sometimes you just have to move on.

Try something new.

Work on the things that you love.

 

Well off to enjoy some coffee and get out of my p.j.’s …..

I wish you a great day …. full of sunshine and laughter.

 

Special Hello to: all of my friends at Bath & Body Works …. you rock.  Best Wishes to everyone.

Always, Carol and Alvin
