Good Morning ALL! How are you this Saturday morning? Alvin and I are fine and are moving slowly. Went to bed a little later than usual for us and then he of course, was up and down several times. Oh well, we have lots of hours in this day to accomplish what needs to be done. Sometimes you have to change your plan. We never know what will happen from hour to hour. That is our case. So up a little later than planned and that is okay. The sky is a brilliant blue this morning and the trees from my office window seem to be just ever so waving ever so gently. Over the earlier hours I viewed the beauty of the sunrise from the back door, from a lying position on the sofa and from my bed. At one point when Alvin had us up …. I noticed a light in the back and wanted to make that no one was doing something they should not be doing. When I was certain all was good, I went back to lay on the sofa only to find that Alvin had gone back upstairs. So that took a few minutes to sort out. Lay on the sofa or go back up to bed. Never a dull moment.

Yesterday I was able to go after work and pick up both a case of wet food and a bag of dry food for Mr. Alvin and of course the glucosamine replacement (Movoflex), I believe. Also while I was out I picked up some lottery tickets. Just felt like I should have some tickets. You cannot win if you do not have tickets. I would love to win some money ….. pay off the mortgage and perhaps be able to retire earlier than later. A gal can dream. Dreams are what got me to this point so why not. Our walk yesterday at noon was fantastic. It was so warm and dreamy …. felt like a summer day. Life. There are moments we love and cherish and others that we would love to toss into the garbage bin. But we cannot have one without the other. Hopefully more great ones for sure. I am looking forward to using my new Bissell Crosswave and I hope that it does what I need it to do. Time will tell.

Oh, I watched the new show with Katy Sagal as REBEL, the lead character and also John Corbett and Andy Garcia. It was great and I will definitely keep watching it. Something just a bit different from everything else on television. Which is great. Some of the other shows I am now watching are 9-1-1 (which has been on for a bit and I am late to the table, and love the characters), still watching the NCIS shows all three of them, back to THE VOICE after not watching a season or two, Bob Hearts Abishola, and a few others. If I listed all of the shows that I watch, you may think that all I do is watch television and while I watch quite a bit, it is not all I do. LOL.

Well I guess time to change the bedding and get dressed. There are bills to pay and a pup that appears to want me for something. My needy guy. I love him despite the fact that sometimes he drives me a bit off the deep end. But that can be said for any relationship, right! Oh well.

Continuing to live this life with respect, compassion, kindness and patience.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Friday morning? Alvin and I are well. I did wake up at 5:30 with a headache so I did take something. Not very often that I get headaches and not very often that I take any kind of medication. I am thinking it is due to the snow mold as I was raking grass last night. Might be a good idea when I do the front lawn to wear a mask. Never thought of that but it might just help. Anyway at the moment the tylenol seems to have worked. I am congested but then I spend most of my days in that state due to allergies. Oh well. I am alive and breathing and living in my own home with my trusty companion Alvin and am employed, so things are pretty great. The sunrise is beautiful this morning. Appears to be no wind, not even a little breeze. After work tonight I will have to run over to the vet and pick up more food and glucosamine for Mr. Alvin. I am grateful that the vet is within walking distance and that today is Friday and that they extended their hours past 4:00 p.m. and open on reduced hours on Saturdays. The weather forecast is for cooler tomorrow so I was thinking that I would go after work but may just go tomorrow. Will see how the day progresses.

What are your plans for the weekend? I want to try out my new Bissell Crosswave vacuum / wet cleaner tomorrow. See if it will clean the area rug and carpet although will start small. Maybe will try the stairs and landing tomorrow. Always there is laundry and the usual bathrooms and dusting. I am not sure if the front lawn will be dry enough to rake, so might leave for next week or weekend when the temperatures are warmer. I am going to submit a tea order. I also want to watch a new show with Katy Sagal that I recorded. The name escapes me and there are other well known actors in the show as well so looks really good. Some of the shows coming out now are extra good – not sure why. Has the Pandemic changing things, I do not know.

I am sorry that this will be short as I needed a few extra minutes to sleep this morning. How about some pretty photos? I love sharing my new found wealth of photos.

Take care and have an awesome weekend.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

Always, Love Carol & Alvin
