Second Half of the NEW YEAR – last quarter.

Good Morning ALL. How are you all this morning? Alvin and I are well. I want to send out Happy Wishes to my niece on her 36th birthday. Hopefully I got the year right. I cannot believe she is all grown up. Time flies and our babies are no longer are babies but yet they are! Have a wonderful day “D” on your special day. Woke up this morning to more snow. Looks like this is going to be the year of the SNOWBANKS. Alvin just sneezed. Lots of shovelling. Yesterday I shovelled the driveway after our walk at noon. When your garage is detached from your house …. it is the old adage you always see what is in front of your nose but forget to look behind. Definitely is in this case. I will have to shovel at noon or after work today. Always good to keep everything shovelled. SNOW and more SNOW. Alvin is enjoying all of the snow on the deck. I left some for him to sniff around in as he likes to bury his head in the snow so to speak. He does actually bury some of his chew treats in the snow. Then spends the winter looking for them. In and out. He loves it and that is all that matters. Just like a little one with a wooden spoon and pot. Simple is always better.

Well I guess today is Wednesday already. Midweek. I am slowly putting together my craft project and hopefully it will be near completion this weekend as after that there will be baking happening in the kitchen and I don’t want to haul everything back and forth to the basement, Christmas project that is. I must make some decisions soon. I have one last obstacle, if you will before I can make it to the finish line. But I will figure it out. Just waiting for that inspiration to hit and it will. Hopefully not in the middle of the night, lol.

Not much else new in our lives at the moment. I must say thank you to my friends and my daughter who have collectively picked up my Christmas baking ingredients so that I did not have to go to the stores. I only have a few items left and then I am ready next weekend, not this weekend but next to start the CHRISTMAS BAKING. Just what we all need after this year is more treats but maybe we do. Anyway I am baking and that is all there is to it. Everyone needs a treat, right!

Time to get on downstairs and make that coffee. I kind of slept in this morning. One of my ears is plugged (happens more often in the wintertime and it is a thing for me) so I was sleeping on my side and didn’t hear the alarm at first. Anyway, all is good.

I hope you are having a good day and have a great Wednesday. We will continue living our lives with kindness and respect for all.

Thank you so much for reading my daily post. I do so appreciate your time. When I first starting writing many years ago now, I had dreamed of having 1 million people reading my blog posts. Now I may not have a million reading but those of you that do, thank you from the bottom of my heart. If we do not have dreams and stay positive – then not likely things will happen close to the way you would like. Anyway, I am grateful to you. Thank you.

With kindness and respect and gratitude,

Always, Carol & Alvin
