Living … One day at a time.

Merry Christmas ….

The sun is already up ….

We were up late last night and slept in this morning.

I managed to keep Mr. Alvin in bed until about 7:00 a.m.

The pups were up shortly after that ….

My daughter went back to bed and my son-in-law is still sleeping after an extra long day (he had to work).

We had a great Christmas ….

Had some late night snacks just after they arrived from an earlier Christmas feast with my son-in-law’s family.

Opening the gifts after that …

Mr. Alvin was the unintentional star of the night.

He absolutely loves opening gifts.

First he opened his gifts, Aspen and Milo’s gifts and then mine.

He does so great …..

There were toys and more toys and treats for the pups and a bandana each.

The boy got his duster with extender that he wanted and more.

The girl got some jewelry as what girls do not love some bling and more.

The Mama got spoiled.

I needed kitchen towels and a stir fry pan and those were two items that I received.

Along with scratch tickets, crystal ornament, HONEY, more kitchen towels, single serving Tupperware food chopper, Magnolia & Vine bracelet and extra charm and more.

I was so spoiled this Christmas.

Thank you to my family and friends.

Here are some photos and then I better go clean up some more and make some COFFEE.

Merry Christmas.

Oh and make some phone calls.

 

Bit of action shot so blurry

Some of my gifts.

Alvin enjoyed opening his gifts and mine.

Aspen and Milo just enjoyed their gifts.

We had a great Christmas Eve and now it is Christmas Day.

I went and spent over one hour with Humphrey and Cynder.

Giving them fresh food and water.

Cleaning the litter box.

Everyone wants a clean one of those ….

Time to go downstairs and make me some coffee.

Then call some family before I start to make brunch which I am thinking will be kind of like “lunch.”

There are no rules on this day.

We just go with it.

Whatever happens, happens.

 

I hope that you are having an awesome Christmas.

Merry Merry Christmas To You and Your Family.

Always, Carol & Alvin

I guess I should upload our newest photo.

 

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of February, 2019.

Another beautiful sunrise.

Clear blue sky.

The smoke is being blasted up through the chimneys as it floats up into the sky.

Another COLD morning, another COLD day.

Another day with no walking for Mr. Alvin.

Sure am looking forward to our first walk once the temperatures warm up.

I am pretty certain that he has CABIN FEVER.

Every once in a bit he grabs a toy and shakes it.

Then he is done.

I am happy to report that he is healing good.

I am certainly not a doctor but there is no swelling from the area where the cyst was removed.

YAY.

Tomorrow morning is going to be another storey as I have been leaving that dreaded cone off as I am supervising him.

He stood in a statue like position yesterday after I placed the cone over his head.

Followed by shaking and then crying.

I could not take it and removed it.

Will try again today.

Hopefully he will be better.

 

Last night Humphrey spent the evening with us.

He was quiet for the most part spending most of his time upstairs.

A couple of times it appeared like they wanted to play with each other but just could not figure out the logistics.

I watch the Invincibles 2 and BOOK CLUB.

First one I had not seen and was really good, who doesn’t love a good animated movie on a Saturday night and then BOOK CLUB, I just loved the movie.

There are not many movies out there with the majority of the cast over the age of 65.

So funny and well done.

That was our Saturday night.

 

Now it is Sunday and time to finish off my secret project (which I will explain later), go and check out Humphrey … feed him and fresh water and clean the litter box.

Home to put away laundry that has been drying

in the basement for a couple of days, lunch for tomorrow, clothes ready and whatever else needs to be done on a Sunday.

Likely better eat breakfast and have COFFEE at some point.

Have an awesome Sunday.

Keep warm.

Grammys on tonight with Alicia Keys, hosting.

Special Hello to:¬† my friends and family …. be safe and keep warm.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 2nd day of January, 2016.

I almost typed 2015 instead of 2016.

It will take a couple of weeks to do the year without thinking.

I am excited to think that in less than four years it will be 2020.

That will be so cool.

 

This morning the sky has a pale orange / white hue …. so very pretty.

It has been wonderful the past couple of mornings to see the sunshine.

We have been getting up to stay up later but with only one morning left before going back to work …… we had better get up earlier tomorrow.

I always like to have a practice run if you will …… just so it will not be such a shock to the system.

 

Well yesterday Mr. Alvin had his bath and he looks so handsome ….

I think he feels better.

 

Last night I went to my friend’s house for supper and a visit ….. there were three of us friends and neighbours.

After supper I ended up going and getting Alvin ( just felt badly that he was home alone ).

Alvin spent the first I would say half an four sniffing about the whole main floor …. every corner …. every inch.

My friend “A” has a cat named Cricket and they get along pretty good.

There were a couple of times that she was a bit miffed with him as he went into the bathroom where her litter was ….. she went in …..

Alvin raised his paw and backed away.

We went in and brought him out …..

But it was okay ….. proud of the boy.

He did not chase her and she did not chase him.

They kind of respected each others space.

 

Had an awesome evening …… home kind of late …… but that is okay.

Not something that I do very often if ever but something I need to do more.

We are going to take turns hosting supper and evening.

All three of us are single ….

We each have a four-legged friend …. two dogs and one cat.

I look forward to that …. my turn is next.

Am thinking of Italian ….. pasta and stuff.

 

Well time to get dressed and get this day started ….. we need bananas and I need a bus pass for work.

So will have to make a trip to the grocery store and the drugstore.

Only a six minute walk …… should go this morning.

Supposed to be another mild day so will go for a nice long walk with Alvin this afternoon.

 

Happy Saturday and I hope that you are enjoying the start of 2016.

Be joyful, healthy and abundant.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who have a four-legged friend …. cherish them ….. treat them with respect.
