Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 11th day of March, 2019.

Yesterday was so WARM with no breeze.

I decided yesterday to take Mr. Alvin to our friend’s birthday celebration.

The cats and Alvin did well.

He kept his distance.

Cricket knows Alvin but Casey has only joined their household last October (2018) and she wasn’t quite sure.

Both are used to dogs but everyone knows that sometimes there can be moments.

Casey did take a swipe at Alvin but he was not close and he retreated to the safety of his Mom’s legs.

Funny how that works.

Poor Alvin had wanted to say hello but Casey was not having any of it.

He pretty much stayed beside me the whole time except when our friend opened the fridge as he knows she keeps the treats in there.

We had a great visit and was interesting watching two cats and a dog navigate their time together.

After the visit we headed home where I quickly changed into boots, coat (had light jacket on) and mitts and of course grabbed some “poop bags.”

Our friend J had left the party when we did and by the time I stopped in and got changed she was outside with Jazmin.

She had not planned to go for a walk but when she got home Jazmin gave her the sign that she wanted to walk.

Miss Jazmin is I believe 14 years old and has a heart condition.

Somedays she just doesn’t want to go.

Yesterday she was excited to go and she tried and mostly kept up with Mr. Alvin.

They get along so well.

I was so happy to see her out and enjoying the warm day.

We had a great walk.

Perfect end to a perfect day.

 

I think that Mr. Alvin is beginning to dream “CATS.”

We were surrounded by CATS this weekend.

AND Miss Jazmin, who is a doggie.

We missed seeing Master Teddy this weekend.

 

Well back to work today.

We had a great day.

Quiet and relaxing and FUN.

 

I hope that you all had a great Sunday.

I hope that if you are in the “time changing zones” that getting up this morning did not hurt too much!!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday.

 

Listening to dogs barking in the distance.

One sounded big.

 

Happy Monday.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 28th day of December, 2018.

The SUN is shining brightly in the morning sky.

Today is the birthday of one of my friends and neighbours “S” ….. Happy Birthday.

Alvin and I had company last night.

Two of our friends “A” and “J” and her pup JAZMIN came for tea and a visit.

A had mentioned about stopping by last night after work and then J called to see if okay for her to stop by.

I said bring JAZMIN and she wasn’t sure.

JAZMIN is getting older and has a heart condition.

Alvin and Jaz get along quite well and he doesn’t get too excited when she arrives.

It is as if they know.

Anyway J & J arrived first and we visited and then A arrived a bit later.

J & J left for home first so it worked that we had visits separately with them and together.

So nice to see these ladies.

 

Yesterday afternoon Alvin and I went for a walk in between doing some laundry.

His paws were starting to get cold as we neared Teddy’s house.

Strange thing … just as I about to say we could stop for a minute their garage door opened and there was Teddy’s Dad “W.”

He spotted us and I mentioned about Alvin’s paws.

W said that he was just about to leave for an appointment but there was time for us to say hi and for Alvin to warm his paws.

Oh, Master Teddy was so excited to see us.

Always, always warms my heart to see him.

W also mentioned that we should stop by tomorrow (which is today) as J, sister of Teddy’s Mom is going to be visiting.

So we will likely on our walk this afternoon stop by for a bit and say hello.

 

So this time off from work has been filled with resting and relaxing and visiting.

I am going to put together a coffee date with two other friends for tomorrow morning.

Our friend “V” called from Regina yesterday.

These days have been filled with phone calls and visits.

The best kind of days off.

I am also thinking of perhaps taking down the decorations on Sunday.

 

Well I guess it is time to get dressed and get this day going.

These later nights and sleeping in ….. well I will have to get back into our routine before next Wednesday (back to work) or the 5:00 a.m. is going to be painful.

Will have to check around and see what project I can take on for a few hours.

Certainly has been wonderful having this time off.

 

We wish you a great day.

WOW, the 28th day of December, 2018 …. almost a New Year.

 

Special Hello to: all of those folks who have time off from work and are just resting and relaxing. DO NOT feel guilty.

Always, Carol & Alvin
