The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Welcome to Monday June 13, 2022. Happy Birthday to my dear friend Pauline, grandmother to grandpup “Georgie.” We wish you a wonderful day. Yesterday we were all dozing on the sofa (me, Alvin and Georgie) when there was a knock at the front door. We all jumped up. The dogs were barking as we all ran to the door to find Pauline there with two trays of pansies in her hands. I had scooped up Georgie before answering the door so that he did not get free and perhaps run away. That would not have been good. George wriggled to get free and get to Pauline. He clearly miss his Grandma. Finally Pauline was able to get into the house. Here they being her daughter (George’s Mum) and Pauline decided to get me some flowers to plant in my garden as an extra thank you for keeping care of George. I was paid as well. Not that I asked, they insisted and I gratefully accepted. So sweet. Anyway we had a visit for a few minutes and I heard of some “Jasper stories” before she and George were on their way back home. I of course, helped carry his food, his bed and dishes to the truck as it would have been too much for one person to carry. Last night it was very quiet without George. He followed me wherever I went. Mr. Alvin must have been tuckered out as he slept without moving for a good two hours after my supper. He did not move when I ran upstairs to put clean sheets on the guest bed as Amanda is coming over the night, today. So great to have company.

Just after I planted the pansies, well not afterward it started to rain. Perfect timing. I ended up putting them in with some existing plants as I had not overfilled any of my pots. The pots look great. Very grateful for the additional flowers.

I also broke down some of the boxes in the garage last night. Just a few left. Some of them are hard to do so will wait until this evening and ask my daughter to help.

The sky is overcast this morning although there have been moments of sunshine and there was a pretty sunrise earlier in between the dark rain clouds. I think the forecast is for rain for most of the week.

Well time to fly. I hope that you have a great Monday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, love, laughter, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities (and coffee, I want to add).

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. 57 days to my 65th Birthday. I even had an opportunity to help a neighbor and friend after I saw Pauline and George off, I saw a neighbor out moving a load of rocks from her lawn to the space beneath her living room window at the front of the house. So I happily went over and helped her.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Happy Friday and I hope that you are doing great! The sun is shining here FINALLY and the sky is a beautiful BLUE, not grey. YAY. The long weekend is off to a great start. Oh, I am working but as far as I am concerned we are almost there. It has been one of those weeks, right! But we made it. The weather here in Edmonton is supposed to be quite nice so perhaps I will be able to plant my flowers, oregano and tomatoes that are taking up real estate on my kitchen table, window sills in the kitchen and with nestled in between my other plants.

Okay, so the vet visit yesterday. We were able to walk there are it had stopped raining. We had a nice walk there. While I was waiting in one of the exam rooms for Alvin, I could hear him crying. I wondered what was happening as he was just supposed to be getting his ears rechecked and checking his paws as I thought perhaps something else going on besides the arthritis and sure enough there was. I am not sure why I did not notice it but this is what Dr. Karen told me afterward. He had some matts in his front paws and they were in between his toes so creating some problems walking and otherwise for the poor boy. No wonder. Anyway it was tricky cutting them out and they started to bleed. The bleeding stopped. I have salve to put on every twelve hours for the next 7-10 days. I forgot to ask about walking. Then of course, he has an ear infection. I was truly mortified by how much gunk came out of his ears as I had cleaned them on Sunday. I guess I did not go deep enough. Cleaning his ears is not an easy job for one person. Anyway, he is on medicine for another yeast infection. I swear it must be a all time record for number of yeast infections in one’s life time. Poor guy. Now this sounds like I do not look after Mr. Alvin which could not be further from the truth. I started to cry when the vet was telling me about his paws. I cannot believe I had not noticed. Now his paws are dark and he does not like them being touched. Now he has no choice. I have to call back because I forgot to ask if we can go for walks during this time. The salve won’t likely help if he continually gets his paws dirty. I had to put his paws in a dish of lukewarm water after the vet visit and remove any dirt he got on them after we left the vet and then pat them dry. Well we had more water on the floor than in the bowl. I managed to clean them but wasn’t easy. Then I put on the salve which was hard to see if I was even getting on the right area. Anyway, the ear medicine prevents any cleaning for the next month so I guess that helps. So just have to concentrate on his paws. I will have to watch more carefully when I am giving him a haircut. I know that I usually have pulled hair out of his paws as he would step in some was I was cutting his hair even though I cleaned it up continually. It was raining when we were about to leave the vet so I called my friend and she came to pick us up. So grateful. Then he would not get all the extra grime on his paws from that back walkway. Which I cleaned up a couple of weeks ago and it is filled with garbage again, maybe not as much but still enough.

We did not have a great sleep but I am going to keep the faith. We have medicine.

The coffee is on and I can sort of smell it. I am very congested. The leaves on the trees.

We had a quiet evening after supper and cleanup. I am very grateful to Dr. Karen and staff for helping Alvin. We are adding to the list of his regular 5 week appointments having his paws checked for matts. How lovely!

Sorry.

I am happy that the sun is shining.

Life is good. Better for Alvin now, thank goodness.

My daughter is popping by after work to pick up something that was delivered for her. I cannot wait to see her.

Have an awesome Friday. Be well. Check your dog’s paws for matts.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Merry Christmas or at least it feels like it. Thankfully the sun is shining brightly this morning. The snow rain mix began to fall yesterday just after Aspen and I started our walk. It was light at first but throughout the day it became more heavy and eventually the temperature dropped and it did not melt as it made touchdown to the ground. When me and the pups were up at 4:15 this morning there was even more than when we had gone to bed. The places on the deck and in the backyard where I had shovelled before going to bed where once again covered by a pile of the white stuff. We would need double digit plus temps before this will melt quickly but not going to happen. Not likely it will stay long but will require shovelling “one more time.” April 20th, 2022 and we have what feels like a foot of snow and I am so grateful that I had the foresight to take Miss Aspen for a walk yesterday before all of the snow. We will likely go later this afternoon. Once the sidewalks are clear and hopefully dry. I am never totally surprised by the weather in Canada or in Western Canada. It changes quickly. We did need the moisture and I do hope that the areas to the south where it is incredibly dry got some of this moisture. I will say that someone was happy to see the snow and has already gone sniffing about some of the piles on the deck. Actually all three of the pups were happy to see the snow this morning – well actually last night. So someone is happy. Perfect for making snow people.

Today is my last day of vacation before work tomorrow. I am so grateful that I am able to work from home. I am grateful that I don’t have to worry about the commute, about leaving Alvin alone or having to find someone who could come and check on him, that I don’t have to worry about the large cost of public transportation or carpooling, about the extra costs for clothing, shoes and food and the costs of being in an office. There was always something going on that required extra money. This way my money is my own. With the increased pricing of just about everything – working from home has made it so that I can afford to pay my utilities and to eat properly. Life.

Well time to head to the shower, then coffee, some laundry, shovelling, walk the pups at some point, find all of the pup’s things tonight as their parents come home tonight, make supper, cleaning and ……

Milo and Alvin did not have a walk yesterday. I decided it would not be pleasant for them to walk in the ever falling wet snow. Alvin is sensitive to yeast infections in his ears from moisture. I was drying him like mad yesterday after each visit to the backyard.

I think he secretly like having all the snow as he could pee on the deck. Who would know and really who cares at this point. Much easier to clean the poop up for sure.

I hope that you are well and having a great day. Hard to believe it is this late, after 10:00 on a Wednesday. Tomorrow at this time I will be just about to take my first coffee break.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin, Aspen and Mi-Mi

P.S. I shall miss my grand pups when they go home. We have had a good week.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! I hope that you are doing very well! I think that Mr. Alvin might have an ear infection. He was thrashing his head about for what seemed like forever this morning. I gave him a tramadol (pain) and shortly thereafter he seemed to settle down. Anyway, looks like another trip to the Vet. I will be calling as soon as they open. Also hoping that the grey skies turn to blue by the time we go or at least it is nice out when we walk there. No sunrise this morning. It is happening without a view.

Yesterday was a fantastic day. I had coffee with my friends and took the treats. The hostess went just a tad overboard with a tray of fruit and iced butter pecan cupcakes. She also gave Gillian and I a spring coloured plastic bucket with a handle filled with all sorts of goodies. There was a sign for Spring, notepad and pen, chocolate, hand cream, fluffy socks (as we still have snow), more chocolate and a flower that is solar powered. I tell you she is one of the most thoughtful, generous people I know. Gillian and I were grateful. We had a great chat about everything and then more and ATE. So many goodies. Three hours later I was home. Mr. Alvin was happy to see me but I think by the way of his other end, he was anxious. We got ready shortly thereafter and went for a nice long walk. The rest of the day was quiet. I just putzed doing odds and ends of things.

We, I watched the OSCARS. I was happy to see that the movie KODA won all three of the awards that it was nominated for: Best Adapted Screenplay, Supporting Actor: Troy Kotsur and Best Picture. If my memory serves me correctly. Congratulations. So happy for them. Jessica Chastain and Will Smith won the Best Actor. Supporting Actor went to Ariana DeBose. Other winners: Best Director: Jane Campion for The Power of the Dog, Best Original Screenplay: Kenneth Branagh for Belfast, Best Original Score: Dune and Best Original Song: Billie Eilish and Finneas for No Time to Die. Dune won several awards. The show went over by about 35 minutes despite them dropping several categories from the televised show and having earlier. It was a nice escape. Even some drama.

Well I am running late so best be going.

All in all, Sunday was a good day and Monday is yet to be seen. So far we are okay.

Have an awesome Monday.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Trust you are all well. Alvin and I are doing well. The sun is rising and the skyline is absolutely gorgeous. Pinks and oranges. It sure seems like spring is in the air.

Today is the 65th Birthday of my friend Terry from back home. Happy Birthday my friend. Wishing you a great day and many more happy, wonderful healthy days ahead.

Also today is a special day to all those people with Irish Heritage. I am one of them. This goes out to my sister do you remember the Irish Concerts at Corning Hall when we were little girls. I love our blouses and skirts and dancing. A great memory. I have always loved a good jig. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Well my second day at the office yesterday went okay. It was good to see some of my coworkers but I will say that I got stuffed up/congested being in the office. Dry air and paper. Of course, I was working with a lot of paper so that did not help. Otherwise it was okay but not as good as working from home.

I had a hard time stop hitting the snooze button so definitely need that good cup of coffee this morning.

This is going to be really short, I am sorry.

Celebrate with your Irish Family and Friends!

Remember when Irish Eyes are Smiling – Sure, they steal your heart away!

Have an awesome day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. Are you wearing something green today?

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Alvin and I are well. He missed me yesterday and I missed him. I am so grateful to my neighbour for taking such great care of him and she will pop in and check on him again today. I am off to the office for the second time this week. I am so grateful that this is only once in awhile. It is great working from home. No commute, not having to spend money on transportation especially when the costs of utilities and food and almost everything else has skyrocketed. I love being home for my Alvin as well, he needs someone here to ensure he is well hydrated and then can get outside to go pee. Yesterday at the office was okay. There were parts that were enjoyable and others that were not. The first session was not. That is all that I am going to say.

We were “let” go early as they felt our day had been long enough and that was unexpected and wonderful. I think more people even though most enjoyed seeing their coworkers – they were not comfortable to be in large groups at the office in confined spaces. There are some people that have had to work throughout these past two years at our office but they were in groups of 3-4 people. Easier to ensure safety during he pandemic.

Today we do our large mailout. Folding papers and stuffing envelopes.

Yesterday when I got home, Mr. Alvin was so happy to see me that he even jumped up when I bent down to give him a little pat that he kissed him. So sweet. Once I had my computer (laptop) hooked up once again and did a couple of things in the house, we got ready and went for a walk. I wore my Sketchers and all went well until our return home when we went down the wrong side of the sidewalk. We had walked down to the next corner and crossed the street where the sidewalk is more dry. Coming home we had made the loop in the crescent and should have crossed back but we did not and it looked like snow but was really partially melted and more wet than dry, more thawed than frozen and my feet got soaked. I laughed it off because what else can you do. We just carried on. Luckily for Alvin he can just get dried off with a towel and me, sock change. It was so warm outside. So beautiful and sunny. This whole week is supposed to be nice and I believe it is supposed to carry on next week as well. Time is chugging on here and it is now about twenty minutes until Amanda is coming to pick me up. My daughter is dropping me off at the office this morning. It will be nice to visit with her on the way to work. I enjoyed my chat with my coworker Michelle who picked me up yesterday morning. I am blessed. So glad that spring is close at hand.

Well other than that, life is rolling along and life is good. I hope that you are well and Happy Wednesday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I managed to score some Girl Guide cookies from a coworker yesterday. She is doing a fundraiser for her children. I also bought some coffee beans which are on order. Nice to be able to help out some children with their fundraisers and for their extra-curricular activities. I guess I spelled that correctly as spellcheck did not tell me anything different. Bye for now.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Saturday morning? Alvin and I are fine. He was up early and a few times so we slept in. But today is laundry and cleaning and more shovelling so the time I start is not as important as if you have to be somewhere for a specific time. I am grateful for that. The sky is white matching the ground once again.

I am happy to say that we were able to get a treatment for Mr. Alvin and my friend, his BF’s Mom picked it up from the Vet yesterday and even helped apply it. We ran a fine comb over him and did not find anything. Breathing a sigh of relief. There were two treatments in the box so there is one to apply in one month’s time.

Today is the birthday of my Aunt Lorraine, my Dad’s only sister. There was only the two of them. I mailed her a birthday card and letter a while ago to ensure that it arrived on time. I am like her or perhaps she is like me but we are the same in that we love to receive cards and letters. I think that mailing cards and letters is beginning to make a come back. I have not stopped. With the price of postage I have cut back but I still try and send as many as I can. Who does not like to open the mailbox and find an envelope addressed to them that is not a bill or spam mail or flyers. ME, I do! Happy Birthday Aunt.

Does not look like we got much more snow overnight which is great so I will only have the driveway to shovel. It is good exercise so I don’t mind.

What are your plans for today? Are you leaving the house? Or hanging out like I am and doing laundry and cleaning? I love being at home. We had another survey from work about “how we feel about going back to the office even if it is only for meetings such as the all staff one coming up on the 15th of March?” Well I can tell you this it freaks me out big time. I love being at home and have no desire to go to the office. I like my coworkers but I prefer to be at home. Anyway I explained why I would like to continue working from home with only the odd time going to the office. If there are people that want to work from the office – go ahead but if you are like me and you have been able to do your job effectively from home – then you/me should be able to continue to do so. Working from home has been great my health and sick time (when I was at the office I was always catching something from people who didn’t think to stay home when they were sick or clients coming in when they were sick). I am so happy without a 2-3 hour commute everyday. I love being able to walk at noon when the weather allows and after work. Being home with Alvin especially since his two surgeries last year and his age has been a godsend. Back to our all staff meeting coming up – gives me anxiety but I am trying to just breathe and not think about it as I do not have a choice in the matter. I understand why they want to have meetings but that does not mean that I have to “love” it.

Well back to the weekend. I am grateful for weekends and having time to do my thing. I hope that you have time to do your thing as well whatever that may be.

Happy Saturday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I had the first of the two cinnamon buns with cream cheese icing from my friend last night and it wa so delicious. Time for coffee.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Both Alvin and I are well. I am just back in the house from shovelling the front walk. More snow overnight. A bit of exercise. Thank goodness today is Friday, I am always excited for the weekends. This weekend the weather is supposed to be almost what we could consider to be TROPICAL for Western Canada in the winter time. Plus +6-7 on Sunday and I think plus 2+ or so for tomorrow and that is in celsius. YAY. We will be walking and I cannot wait. Not many walks in this winter.

Well still haven’t be able to get just the right “deadbolt” can you believe it? Oh well, three times is the lucky charm. What can you do? We are trying. My poor friend making all these trips to LOWE’s and with the price of gas! I will be giving her some more money when I am paid.

Not much new in our household. Alvin and I are happy to have quiet non eventful evenings and days for that matter. I will, we will be happy to have dry sidewalks once again and warm temperatures so that we can enjoy walking.

Well this is going to be a short one. I kind of hit the old snooze button a couple of times this morning when I should have been getting my “fanny farkle” out of bed, off the sofa, is more accurate. Anyway, not much new and I have no words of wisdom to share this morning.

I hope that you enjoy this day. Be kind and take care.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? It is extremely windy here in my neighbourhood and likely in the rest of Edmonton and surrounding areas. Feels like the vents are going to be pulled right out of the house. I was happily surprised when I opened the front door that my shovels and little tree had not blown over. But the force of the gust when I opened the door covered me in snow. Wasn’t that a lovely blast at 4:30 a.m. this morning. Anyway, not very nice outside. I would imagine that outside of the city and on the highways that visibility is not great. Looks like we have fresh snow but I cannot see it snowing. I cleaned the backdoor area at 4:30 for Alvin and then there was even more snow a few minutes ago. The wind actually woke me up I think somewhere around 3:00 or even earlier. Very strong. Be careful out there. My daughter is bringing the grand pups in for a vet appointment at 2:00 p.m. – hopefully things have calmed down by then otherwise they may have to cancel again. They cancelled the other time due to ice and snow. What a winter this has been. I have asked to take the afternoon off if they make it into the city. I sure hope so but only if it is safe. Certainly do not wish my family to be driving in less than safe conditions. I guess time will tell when it becomes light outside. I am so grateful that Alvin and I spent some time outside yesterday. We went for a walk and found our friends out chipping away at the ice and snow. They live on the corner and have the long sidewalk. Bless their hearts in their 70’s they are out clearing the ice away so that people would not fall and the other folks on the corner lots, not out doing anything. Very sad. Anyway, it was so nice that Alvin and I walked the length of their property and then down the street north of them which happened to be pretty clear and dry. So we did that about four times which is about the length of going to the park. So it was some fresh air and safe walk and a visit to boot. We had a great day.

I put away most of the last of my Christmas decorations including the Christmas cards. Now I have to finish packing everything away in the basement. I have a few things waiting to be reorganized. I also went to make a pitcher of fruit tea with ginger ale and I must have hit the sink as the picture shattered with ginger ale and fruit tea flying in every direction. It took me about 30 minutes to wash down the counter, cupboards, the floor and baseboards. There was ginger ale everywhere. Inside the cupboards, too. What a waste of a big bottle of ginger ale. But stuff happens. There was just a big hole in the side of the picture. Luckily the only thing on me that was sticky were my socks.

In between the ginger ale incident and the walk and taking down the remainder of Christmas decorations, I managed to watch three Star Trek movies (give or take a few minutes here and there). I love those movies.

Well that is all that is new from our house. I really had to coax Alvin to go outside. I cannot blame him. It is not fit outside for man or beast. Mom or Alvin.

I hope that you have a good day. Keep safe and warm. If you have to be out driving – make sure that you leave the house early, make sure that you have an emergency kit in the vehicle and drive carefully and do not speed. I want you to be safe.

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

P.S. so grateful to be working from home. I have to thank two of my neighbours for putting the rubber weather stripping back on the bottom of the garage door. So grateful for that family and every family surrounding me. I am surrounded by good people.

The New YEAR 2022

Hello, I cannot say that it is a good morning. I am terrified to go back downstairs and start this day. Last night while I was cooking supper, I heard a noise from the kitchen. The noise was the lid from Alvin’s wet food tin falling onto something, which I had left by the sink with some dirty dishes. I had put some water in the sink and was going to do dishes after I ate. Both Alvin and Cookie were with me in the living room. My heart sank, I knew what it would be. I stood up and walked around the sofa and to the end of the kitchen counter and on the other side of the sink I saw the creature that I fear the most, bigger than a spider and faster, a mouse. I can barely type those words. My throat is dry as I am so scared to go back downstairs to start this day. Poor Alvin. Anyway, when I saw the mouse, I grabbed my phone from the charger and ran to the door, screaming as I ran to the farthest point from him/her. It took me a few seconds or perhaps even a minute to actually text my neighbour Jessica, and all I could type was HELP followed by the word Mouse. I believe that I was hyperventilating. It felt like my throat was dry and I was crying and screaming. The poor dogs were frozen in positions on the sofa. After I texted Jessica, I texted another friend quickly as I know that she is not afraid of these creatures but I also knew that she has a sore back. It wasn’t long before I heard I heard a noise on the porch, so I scooped up Cookie so that she would not run outside. I surely did not need something else wrong. My neighbour came into the house and immediately went into the kitchen, the mouse was still on the counter. It ended up behind the stove but when she moved the stove, it was gone. It did not appear that there was any place for it to go. Somewhere in between all of this my friend and her daughter arrived. It may have been before the stove was moved, I don’t really remember. I was beside me. My friend had brought a mousetrap with her and the girls were trying to set it behind the stove. But after several tries it would not work. Someone googled to find what could be done in interim. Apparently they do not like tin foil, I did not know that. My neighbour had stuffed tin foil around the entrance points by the stove and counter and floor. I knew that they do not like bounce sheets or dryer sheets and I have them all over the furnace room, well not all over. In a few spots. Anyway, after several minutes of not seeing the mouse, my friend and her daughter went home and my neighbour suggested that she go to Walmart and pick up some traps and other supplies. I feared to be alone but it was the best thing to do. I had the pups there. Also Cookie’s family were on their way home. What a mess. My dinner had been cooking in the oven. So it was on the kitchen table but my appetite was not there but I did have a couple of carrots and roasted potatoes. I held Cookie while the girls were there and she was shaking. I can only imagine that I scared her half to death. Alvin just kept staring at me. It was not long before my neighbour was back. She pulled out the stove, set two traps, just like that and pushed the stove back. At this time, I have no idea if the mouse was caught or not. I cannot move the stove. I will need help. I had to take a day off work as I am so petrified to be downstairs. Anyway, my neighbour stayed for a few hours. We threw away some items from my counter that I could not easily clean and sanitized the rest. We washed, well she washed dishes and I dried. We did a load in the dishwasher. Bless her heart, my neighbour accidentally put the coffee perk in the water before I noticed, it is electric and cannot be submerged in water. How could I be mad? She was in autopilot mode trying to keep my spirits up and help. The pot actually needed to be replaced. Anyway, Cookie’s family got home and picked her up just before 11:00 p.m. and shortly after that we came upstairs to my safe place. Alvin is whining now so I must go. He likely has to pee. He has been so good. My neighbour is going to bring me coffee and stay for a bit while I figure out what to do. I still have to take down Christmas decorations. What a mess! Well not a mess, I feel like a mess. It would not have been so bad if the creature had not been on the counter, that freaked me out bigtime. Note to self, never leave the lid from his food uncleaned on the counter. It was not there long but enough time.

Breathe. Oh and I spent some time on the phone with my daughter while my neighbour was at Walmart. Oh, I am surrounded by strong women. I am so grateful. I wished that I could have the essence of CAT in the house so that they would stay away.

I am going to text Jessica and she will bring over some coffee. I definitely need coffee. I will put my winter boots back on, they give me a false sense of security but a security nonetheless. I put them on right away last night when this all started. I had to take the bag of garbage out to the garage and then they were covered in snow so I had to put on slippers. Not quite as good.

What a night. I pray and hope that it is gone forever and never to return.

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS I am thinking that I may set up my workstation in my office for the rest of the week. Not sure if I can work in the kitchen at this point. I am even afraid to open cupboard doors and drawers. All the things we washed are cleaned and sitting on the kitchen table.
