The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you today? Alvin and I are well. Just had a refreshing shower so I feel extra good. The sky is almost white matching the recently fallen snow. The only colour is the in between – the garages – the houses – cars. I have recently heard more birds singing, is that a sign that spring is close by? I sure hope so.

Today is the official retirement date of my long-time friend Linda H. She lives in Regina and we met at work although growing up we lived not too far away from each other. Alvin and I want to wish her the most wonderful retirement. I know that she will be happy to be at home and not have to commute to work any longer. No more political stuff. She can decide what she wants to do on a daily basis. Congratulations my friend.

On the upside it is lighter earlier in the mornings and that is a good thing. Alvin and I enjoyed a walk yesterday at noon. The wind was a bit cool but so great to get outside for some fresh air.

Just thinking of life in general and of how grateful I am for so many things. Family, friends, Alvin, good health, working from home, my house and well everything.

I hope that you have a great day. Keeping it short today. Looking forward to that first taste of freshly brewed coffee. So good.

Oh, thank you to my friend Signe, who baked cinnamon buns yesterday and decided that her friend needed a treat. Last night they dropped off a couple with some cream cheese icing. I will enjoy them today, and if I can hold off having the second one until tomorrow, that would be great. They will be enjoyed over a couple of days. Thank you.

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! How are you this morning? It is FRIDAY, yay. Well I am okay and so is Alvin. Another choppy sleep night but that is okay. I am up and ready and also ready to start drinking my coffee. The sky is lightening out my office window but I do not see the colourful rays of a sunrise. We had more snow overnight as we found out the first time that Alvin went outside around 3:00 a.m. But at least it is getting lighter even without the sunrise. I just found out yesterday that Monday is a holiday for us. No work. I am over the moon excited to have a day off. Just a nice break.

Did you all know that yesterday was “Random Act of Kindness Day?” Well I knew a few days before hand and then I totally forgot yesterday. I will say that I do try to “kind” everyday. Somedays I am better than others. How about you?

We had a great evening. Just quiet and watched some television. There are some good half hour comedies on. A couple that I am just starting to watch: “Children Ruin Everything” – a Canadian Comedy, “B Positive” which is chalked full of great actors and I love this one, Call Me Kat is so funny and a couple of others whose titles elude me at this moment. Always good to laugh before you go to bed. Call Me Kat, I have been watching for awhile along with Bob Hearts Abishola and Young Sheldon. Those are the ones that I was missing. Great shows one and all. Check them out.

When there is no colour in the morning sky you just need some photos of pretty colourful flowers. I hope that you enjoy them. I do love flowers.

On that note, time to take a swig of the caffeine. Coffee, yum.

Happy Friday. I hope that you have a beautiful sunrise wherever you may be.

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

Aways, Carol & Alvin
