Last Half 2022 – November

Good Afternoon All, as I pull out from under a blanket and freshly showered after being almost two days in my pj’s. Feeling human again. Tis the season for giving and receiving. I guess that I picked up a bug somewhere along the line. It happens.

We were deeply saddened to hear of a loss to a family who live nearby. Their 47 year old son was killed in a workplace accident over the weekend. I was told last night by a phone call from another neighbour. Today I struggle with calling them to extend my deepest sympathies. A card lays on the counter for them.

The day has been mostly sunny and warm. Mr. Alvin has been enjoying having me all to himself. I would love to take him for a walk so that he can enjoy the sunshine. Perhaps a bit later. Fresh air is always good for everyone.

Sunday night was so enjoyable. I had supper with my friends Pauline and Al and another neighbour of theirs and friend, also, Lucy. We laughed and laughed. Al cooked us a “fish fry” ….. nothing like fresh fish from this summer’s catch (froze till now). The food was great, the company even better. We learned a new card game which was so much fun. I am grateful to have such amazing friends.

Monday morning, I woke up with a sore throat and headache. Not a great way to begin a week but nonetheless, it did. Thankfully it is over now and I feel close to normal. Refreshed from the shower. I drank lots of tea with ginger when I was awake.

I just wanted to reach out so that you did not think that I disappeared. I am here. Mr. Alvin just sauntered into the office wagging his little tail and walked onto his bed and is sitting there looking at me. I wished that I knew what he was thinking. Er, maybe not.

Time to head downstairs and perhaps do a couple of little things. Not going to overdo it, no, no No.

Have a great rest of the day!

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 9th day of July, 2018.

We had a shower overnight.

Did not hear a thing – must have been sound asleep.

Alvin did not stir until almost the time that the alarm went off (or would have, rather).

The sky remains overcast.

Deciding what to wear …. changed my mind completely from what I had laid out.

 

Again this morning Mr. Alvin urged me to massage his neck area and when I stopped he “asked politely for me to continue.”

He also did not wish to eat right away this morning.

Ate banana first (which is a first).

He does not seem to be ill but I will have him checked out on our regular visit (which is soon).

I suppose just could be an age thing.

OH, I hope so.

Please send lots of positive energy our way for me Alvin (cannot hurt).

 

I can hear the traffic buzzing on the highway.

Oh, he just asked “please again.”

 

Have to run.

Alvin needs me and it is almost time to leave for work.

 

Have an awesome Monday.

Good energy for us all.

 

Special Hello to: my sisters ……

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Friday, January 25th, 2013 …..

Welcome back to me ….. I have had a touch of the flu bug …. but after two days of “bed rest” I am feeling much more my old self.

I always find that whenever I am feeling low that sleep brings me back.

Also yesterday the sun came out after several overcast days.

Anyway it is good to be back and I have missed writing on my blog.

I hope that you all had a great couple of days.

What’s new?

January has been a crazy month.

Cold, then above seasonal temperatures (like plus 10 celsius) and then snowy and colder and more snow.

I hope that from this point on the sun shines.

We need that shine ….. that glorious sunshine.

Those golden rays that make us feel good.

I sure notice when the sun is covered by a blanket of clouds.

Well here we are almost time for me to finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you all have an amazing Friday and I am sure glad to be feeling myself once again.

Have a great weekend and I look forward to catching up with you next week.

Thanks again for taking the time to read my words …. it means the world to me.

Special Hello to: ¬†all those great people who have subscribed / read my blog …. thank you, thank you, thank you.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin ……
