2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Saturday morning? Alvin and I are well. We had a good night sleep and were up several times starting at 3:00 a.m. but that is my/our life. The sun is shining as it rises in the sky. From my office window which faces south I can see beyond my garage this most beautiful tree swaying in the breeze with the most glorious golden leaves. They almost appear to be magical from this distance. Absolutely beautiful. Mother Nature in all her glory. I love the colours of fall and I guess if you have been reading my posts – that is not new.

I had a great Halloween at work in my house, in my kitchen followed by a Zoom Halloween Party from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. We got a chance to see our fellow co-workers Halloween costumes and play some games. It was really a lot of fun.

Here are some photos of my costume:

I am sorry, I heard my neighbour calling out for her cat “Bogart” who is now sporting a GPS gadget as he likes to play escape artist. I opened the window when I heard her and she asked if he was in my backyard (which he likes to come into) but I could not see him nor could I see the entire backyard from my vantage point. Sonja said that she would come through the garage ….. she wasn’t coming so I called out to her and she said the keypad to the garage is dead (battery operated). So downstairs and outside me and Alvin ran. Alvin ran and jumped as he left the house as though he were two again. I forgot to take my keys to unlock the garage so back into the house. Oh, he was not in our yard. I left Alvin in the backyard while I quickly scoured the area close to our homes. The GPS said he was 22 metres away so he was not far. Alvin barked the few minutes that I was gone so I came back and put him in the house and he kept barking. He certainly does not like it when I am out of his sight. Sonja finally found him under the deck of her neighbour on the other side of her house. What a boy! I don’t think that Bogart will be getting any treats in the near future. She threatened to put a leash on him when he is in the backyard. We will see what happens. She is a good Mom and is always taking such good care of them. Giving him a chance to live his best life with a bit of “freedom.”

Photos now: My throw together WITCH COSTUME.

I was thinking that perhaps next year as it will be my 65th year that I will go all out and prepare in advance a great costume. Just have to decide on what.

Well I think that I have had enough excitement for this morning, time to get going on this day. I did water and look after my plants on the main floor at 6:00 a.m. when I was up with Alvin (breakfast). I changed our bedding and gathered the towels from the upstairs bathrooms and have written this post and searched for a missing “cat named Bogart” which is not too bad for 9:30 in the morning.

Have a great day and I am on my way to start the laundry and have some coffee. It is darn cold outside this morning. I had to come back into the house at one point and grab my winter coat. A fleece pullover was not warm enough.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
