The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! What a beautiful morning. Feels like a tropical heat wave. Almost time to bring out the sandals and light jacket, almost. Well something kind of unnerving but cool at the same time happened this morning, almost one hour ago now. I was on my way back upstairs to have a shower when I saw a dog running by my house. As it ran, I realized that it was a coyote and not a dog. I have never seen a coyote go by my house. It turned down the next back lane going east and then headed north. Unfortunately I did not have my phone in my hand as I was going to pick it up when something caught my eye outside on the street. Would have been great to have had a photo of our visitor. I sure hope that no one left their dogs outside unattended as I think that they can actually jump the height of our fences. I immediately texted all of my friends in the neighbourhood to warn them. One of my friends already texted me back to say that she saw a big one running down the street about two days ago. They are getting brave and must be hungry. Quite scary. Another reason why I do not walk with Alvin or by myself in the dark. It is hard not to in the wintertime. But when we go after work, will make sure that we go right after work no dilly dallying about. We have a lot of rabbits in the neighbourhood. I know it is the circle of life but the thought makes me feel bad/sad. Anyway, it is good to be aware of your surroundings and I am glad that I let my friends and neighbours know.

I sure could have stayed out in the backyard this morning as it is so warm. Really nice. The snow is becoming sticky and is feeling like snowman making time. Perhaps later.

Last night I went to visit one of my neighbours, the one with the new pup. The name reverted back to its’ original one which is Kami. She is a delight and for eight months old, quite well behaved. We will be watching her on Wednesday night while her Mom goes curling and I cannot wait. Excited for Alvin and Kami to get to know each one a bit better. They have met so that is great. I also have to go into the office tomorrow for the day. My neighbour will come and check on Mr. Alvin as I do not wish to leave him alone for that long of a day. Too long for an older guy.

Well time to have some coffee (sure am enjoying my new coffee perk) and get settled in for work.

I look forward to walking at my lunch break again today. Yesterday was nice but today is warmer already.

Have an awesome day. Be careful and enjoy your day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 27th day of July, 2018.

We made it through another week and a lovely weekend ahead.

The sky is overcast with that hazy pink smoky grey and on the other side of my house you can see the sun shining.

Funny how a direction can change things.

My carpool is not running again today as she had to make another trip to the hospital with her son.

Keeping them in thoughts and prayers.

 

Alvin decided for some reason unknown to me to get up at 3:00 p.m.

Perhaps it was due to his over eating last night.

After work and after Alvin was looked after, I checked my messages on FB.

I found one from the Momma of Master Teddy inviting us over for supper.

So I sent a message back stating we would love to come if it was not too late.

I called her as well but no answer.

A little while later the phone rang … it was our friend and she had been out for a walk with Teddy.

So supper was a go.

After completing a few small tasks we went on our walk and as they live on our route we stopped there for a visit and supper.

We had a great time.

She has a beautiful home and yard.

The evening zipped by and it was after 8:00 p.m. when we left … continuing our walk home.

Alvin got into Teddy’s food as Teddy’s food dish is always out and he just eats as he is hungry.

I could never do that with me Alvin – he would just eat it all at one time.

It was a great Thursday night.

I do not often go out during the week and seldom for supper.

It was a great treat and most appreciated.

Always so nice when someone else cooks.

She is a great cook.

We had salmon (it was so good).

 

Well my friends …. that was our evening.

I am so grateful to be surrounded by wonderful people.

I know sometimes work drives me crazy but I can come home to me Alvin, who even when he gets me up in the middle of the night, he is my light.

Tonight my daughter is picking me up after work and we are making a run to COSTCO.

Need a few things before the company arrives next week.

 

I wish you a wonderful Friday and that you are surrounded by love and light.

Happy Friday.

 

Special Hello to: my daughter, thank you for being you and for helping your Momma….

Always, Carol & Alvin
