Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Sun rise beautiful and the skies are a mixture of clouds and light.

So we will take that…..

The heavens opened up while I was on the bus on my way home.

In fact, the rain started when I was about 10 minutes from my bus stop.

By the time, I got off the bus, the rain had slowed down.

Luckily for me and all my fellow bus riders.

I managed to be mostly dry upon reaching home.

Which was a good thing.

Alvin went outside to the back yard and did his business.

We decided as it was still raining to have supper first.

Ended up walking about 8:00 p.m. and it was wonderful.

The air was fragrant with fresh rain and roses.

I keep forgetting to mention the roses that line the entrance to the park by my house and in other spots throughout the park and other walkways.

The rain …. oh, they love the rain.

The fragrance …. I closed my eyes and stood still for a few moments breathing in the beautiful fragrance.

Even Alvin took a moment to take it all in …. he likes to get right in there.

I have warned him about the thorns but he is a dog and most times has to figure it out firsthand.

There is no fragrance on this earth like roses.

Seldom can man come close to this amazing smell.

I love roses.

Can you tell?

But these roses.

The “wild” roses not the ones that have been tampered with by man throughout the ages.

Just a plain rose …..

We met a new friend “Rickie” last night on our walk and stopped to see others as they were sitting in their garage.

It was a great walk.

Alvin was over the moon that he did not have to wear the dreaded red rain poncho.

I thought he looked handsome and debonair but he did not.

 

Sometimes you just get to bed later and then want to sleep more.

So am running a tad late here.

 

Wishing my darling cousin L, a very Happy Birthday …..

Wishing my best friend from early childhood and her twin sister a very Happy 62nd Birthday.

I am getting close to that special year as well.

 

Well time to fly here as Mr. Humphrey will be spending the day with Mr. Alvin.

He has a doggie friend at his house.

So as my Alvin and Humphrey get along so well ….

Humphrey will be coming over here.

First time ever.

One cat and one dog for the whole day with the Mama.

I am quite certain that they will be fine.

At least they have two floors in the house ….. space.

 

Happy Thursday.

 

Kind and Respectful.

Even with cats and dogs.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 18th day of March, 2018.

The sky is white.

The rooftops are white.

The cars are white.

The tops of the fences are white.

The trees are white.

The snowbanks are white.

The ground is white.

It has been snowing since yesterday except for a small break earlier this morning.

Fine snow coming down.

Coming down.

Coming down.

It appears to be heavier now.

Shovelling, shovelling, shovelling.

I shovelled yesterday on my second visit to see Humphrey.

OH my Humphrey, what a guy.

He is a three legged orange fluffy cat.

The new love in my life. (don’t tell Mr. Alvin).

On my second visit of the day after we had snuggled in his favourite position.

Better description …. I picked him up ….. he was sitting in my lap upright with his back to me.

I placed one arm under his front paws and he rested on me.

The other hand I used to massage and stroke him.

He purred and I relaxed in the moment.

What a guy.

When I went to put him down when it was time for me to go home to Alvin.

He placed one paw on my leg as if to say “please stay.”

I did.

How can you say no to that.

I knew Alvin would be wondering what was going on.

Oh my boys.

One cat named Humphrey.

One dog named Alvin.

Both guys that have won my heart.

Both so cute that you could just cry.

Time to go.

Shovelling to do.

Friends coming for visit at 10:00 a.m.

Coffee to drink and tea.

Visiting to do.

Laughter to take.

What a great day.

Exercise and laughter.

That will help my core …. the middle section of my body.

Who has decided to expand with perhaps a bit of help from me.

Oh well.

More exercise and more laughter.

That is and cut down on the amount that I eat.

That would likely help.

I cannot seem to remember that I am now 60 and not 20.

Watch what we eat.

Okay, time to go and do some shovelled.

Front first and then the back.

Alvin can come and help with the back.

Happy Sunday.

Good day to have some fun.

 

Special Hello to:  my friends and family all over the world.

Always, Carol & Alvin
