Last Half 2022 – November

Good Morning ALL! Well today is Saturday and I am happy about the weekend. We were off to a rough start last night as Mr. Alvin was not happy about something and spent a considerable amount of time whining and going in and outside to the backyard. In the meantime, I had taken the ornaments off the tree, removed the lights and unpackaged and tested the new lights for the tree. It was well after supper (we ate very early and I had the dishes done before 5 p.m.) that our “fun” began. I had taken five of the six strands of new lights and plugged them in end to end, I had miscalculated a step and stepped on one strand of lights which broke one of them. Right away I picked up all of the tiny pieces and threw them into the garbage. Then I unplugged that strand from the line and went to see if I could remove the remainder of the bulb. I decided as the instructions were clear about only plugging in five sets of lights in one plug so I decided to just use the five strands for now. It took awhile to get the lights on and then I started to decorate the tree. I was not happy with how it was looking and Alvin was still miserable about something or other. At one point and it was just a few minutes after 8:00 p.m., he barked and then went upstairs, I had to follow to ensure that he made it up okay. Up on the bed he went while I turned on the bathroom light so he would have some light upstairs. I went back downstairs to continue decorating the tree. A few minutes later, very few, guess who was back downstairs. He was not having a good night. He was whining and barking and it is very hard on a person, “me.” Anyway, no matter what I did he was not happy and I was growing more miserable and mad by the minute so I made an executive decision to just stop and watch a bit of television without even the tree lights on. We say in semi-darkness watching television for a bit. I checked my messages and found one from a neighbour. Apparently they had accidentally sold me their Mom’s good hand blender at a garage sale a couple of months ago and were wondering if they could buy it back. I really had to laugh as I had wondered why someone (who cooked and baked a lot) would give up a KitchenAid hand mixer at a garage sale. I replied “of course.” I guess it was a good thing that it was me and not someone that they did not know. She offered me $30 but I texted back that I only paid $18. Definitely not taking more money for something – that would not be fair or even good on any level. We are friends. Sometimes accidents happen. I am just happen that they had not sold it to an unknown. We were in bed by 10:30 and I did not even read. It took me a long time to fall asleep because of the evening’s events but that was okay. Lucky for me, I did fall asleep and Alvin slept through until after 4:00 a.m. and then we were up at 7:00 (I was wondering why he kept bugging me and then I saw the time, well of course, he was hungry). Anyway, I removed the ornaments that I had put on the tree before I went to bed so this morning, I played with the lights and branches, rearranging and such. I reached a point where I was moderately satisfied with how the tree looked before starting to redecorate. I carefully placed the ANGELS all over the tree before starting to put on other of my favorite ornaments. When I looked at the clock and due in part to Mr. Alvin whining once again by the door and realizing that Humphrey & Bogart were outside and that is where he wanted to be with his friends. Even with a fence between them, he wanted to be out there. He is giving me that look so I suppose it is time to head back downstairs and finish the tree. It will likely take me another couple of hours or so. There be laundry to do and cleaning. A walk with the boy later this afternoon.

The sunrise is beautiful. Pale colours fill the sky. I am once again calm and laughing at how I stepped on and broke a light and then this morning I plugged the strand in and only some of the lights are working. Also this morning or was it last night, oh, last night, while removing the decorations I dropped one of the smaller red round ornaments. Back out with the broom. Okay two things have been broken and that is enough. Wish me luck. Perhaps it was not such a great idea on a Friday evening after a full week to be redecorating the tree. I should have just taken the ornaments off and left until this morning but oh well, would a, should a, could a.

Wish me luck again.

Have a great day.

I think that I will wait for awhile before attempting to fix the toilet handle, lol.

Need coffee.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: always brings me back to COFFEE.

Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning. Today is September 11, 2022.

To all those who lost a family member or friend at the World Trade Centre this date in 2001, you have my deepest sympathies. To all the first responders and others involved in the rescue operations, you have my deepest respect. To all those who were lost as a result of this terrible tragedy, I send my deepest sympathies to their family and friends. Time has passed but you have not been forgotten.

On this Sunday morning there is a bit of a breeze as I watch the trees gently swaying back and forth. The sun is shining. Yesterday the sky was filled with smoke from the fires in British Columbia and Jasper, Alberta. So hard to breathe.

Yesterday I did some yard work, laundry, baked some unbaked chocolate macaroons and other odds and ends before heading out for a walk with Mr. Alvin about 2:00 p.m. We had been invited to stop by for a visit and catch up with our friend Pauline. We had a great visit and I filled her in on all of our news including Alvin’s latest health concerns and the return to work order. She had lots of good news which nicely offset my news. Of course, not everything out of my mouth was “not good.” I am over the moon happy about the results from Mr. Alvin’s ultrasound from last Tuesday. We headed home just before 4:00 p.m.

When we arrived home Mr. Alvin was ready for supper so shortly thereafter he ate. I had supper early as last night was paint night. My painting the second from the left first row. The other piece of artwork was a piece of paper towel that I had been wiping my excess paint onto, it turned out to be a work of art. I might even frame it.

This morning Mr. Alvin wanted outside once again. There I saw Bogart straddling the fence. Alvin looking at him and Bogart looking at Alvin. Oh our boys.

I had a great time painting last night. For some reason I was not feeling very artistic but I loved the company. Signe and her Mom sure know how to host a party. It was wonderful to be out and about.

Lots of food and drink and great company.

Well time to head downstairs and have some coffee and get this day going. I have brought up the laundry and put away and made our bed and got dressed, lol, so that is something.

We are having some friends over for a visit and to chat about Alvin.

Happy Sunday.

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

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! While it is not a good morning for everyone on the planet, I want to remain as positive as I am able to during this time. My heart goes out to the peoples of Ukraine and also the peoples of Russia who do not wish to be at war with their neighbours. Why is it that after two World Wars and many devastating conflicts the world over we have not learned anything? I know that most people living outside of a democracy have little or no control over who leads their country. Why can’t we do something before there is bloodshed and destruction? My heart aches for the people and my mind cannot turn off the many thoughts that are racing through it. I will say that last night in bed, thinking about the world, I was hoping and wishing that Putin would just quietly disappear. I still hope this will happen today. Sooner than later. To the Russian people who are valiantly protesting the war despite their safety and well being, I thank you for standing up to him. I am not sure that sanctions made by the “west and other countries” are going to stop this war. He doesn’t care. It is all about keeping Russia’s borders safe. With each passing day – his mind and resolve grows strong. He is likely thinking that he is untouchable. That is dangerous. We have seen this before and look what happened!

I was going to write about other things but after this, it just seems flimsy and not worth mentioning at this time.

All I can say is I believe that most of the everyday people on the planet are with Ukraine. We do not wish war. We want to live in peace. We want to have a home for our families. Enough food in our bellies. To be able to live without fear of tanks driving down our streets or bombs going off in the middle of the night. To have our biggest complaint be to shovel the snow from our sidewalks and perhaps not to be able to walk due to the ice. For me, I am grateful for my quiet life with my dog Alvin.

Peace and Safety to ALL.

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

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? I am okay, we are okay. Alvin for some reason couldn’t settle down to sleep so we were up and outside at 11:08 p.m. which was only one hour and a bit since we went to bed. Then we settled on the sofa. Do you have sometimes when you just cannot shut off your mind, mine was in overdrive. I kept thinking of random, silly things over and over until I decided that we had to go back upstairs. Plus I just could not get comfortable. So back upstairs we went. As soon as I laid down, I knew that had been the right choice for both of us. Next time we were up was almost 4:00 a.m. (not too bad for a pair of old ones). Then back to the sofa and up at 6:00 a.m. and yes, you guess it, I could not help but to keep hitting the snooze button until 7:03 a.m. (yikes, momma). This is the time of year that I struggle with sleep, I cannot seem to get enough. Now that being said once I am up – I am okay. How many of you have a child, a spouse or an “Alvin” that wakes you up during the night and early morning? I am pretty certain that I am not alone in this. But this is my life. Bed, up, down, up, down, up down and then up. Sometimes I feel like a yo-yo.

I just took a glance out of the office window and noticed that there is lightness to the south which can mean only one thing that it is “later” than I was thinking. Yikes, I have to hustle as it is almost time to go to work. The night sky is slowly dissipating as the sun rises with all the colours of the morning. Beautiful. I definitely need a cup or twelve of coffee this morning. Guess I will be going now as I have a few things to do downstairs before I start to work. The minutes seem to be evaporating.

I hope that you have a wonderful day. Be well and stay safe.

Oh, yesterday we managed to get two short walks in …. Mr. Alvin has only chose to walk just into the park and then home ….. so I have to follow the leader.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing this morning? I am well but a bit on the sleep deprived side. Alvin woke up about midnight, jumped off the bed and stopped on the “white” area rug that I have surrounding the end of the bed to help soften his landing and started to wretch. I immediately without hesitation jumped up and quickly moved him to the floor without the rug. He threw up something. He was in the in between place where there is nothing more to come up but still feeling like something needs to come up. In the midst of it all I ran into my bathroom and grabbed some kleenex to clean up. Once he was done, I quickly gave a good clean of the area before grabbing my phone, and water to go downstairs. Alvin stood at the top of the stairs and I knew that he was too weak to climb down on his own. I deposited my items downstairs and ran back up to carry him down. Downstairs I grabbed a light jacket from the hall closet and while putting it on, gently guided Mr. Alvin to the back door. At the back door, I put on my outside shoes and we went out into the night. It was just after midnight by this time and he just walked over onto the deck and stood there sniffing the night air. I walked over to see if he would go down onto the grass area and all he did was run away from me. Not really thinking that he wanted to play but I think that he wasn’t quite himself. Anyway several minutes later back into the house, no pee. It was so quiet outside at that time of night, no noise from the highway a few miles away, just us out on the deck. Back in the house, I decided that we would lay down on the sofa instead of going back upstairs. Both of us did not settle down easily and before you knew it …. we were up at 4:15 ….. gave him his glucosamine chew and then outside where he did pee. I reset the alarm, then up, I do not remember exactly and gave the boy his breakfast which he gobbled down as per usual. He went outside and then we were back to the sofa for a few minutes more sleep. We did not get out for a walk. At 7:00 a.m., we were up to stay up. At least I was for the moment. Alvin stayed on the sofa while I ran upstairs to hop into the shower. When I was finished in the shower – I peeked around the corner to see him lying on the bed. He seems to be fine. His eyes appear to be clear. At this moment he got up from his position on the carpet outside the office and just stared at me and now he is laying on his tummy licking his paws. Well almost time to go to work. The clock is ticking away closer to start time. I really am going to need to cup or three of coffee this morning.

One thing to note ….. last night as I was eating supper (late afternoon) …. there was a knock at the door and a neighbour from two doors down was there to ask if I would like some more plants. She had bought some and then a friend of hers gave her more. So she had more than she had room for and so I graciously accepted. I thought of the neighbour in between us which is the one in the other half of my duplex. Last night quite unexpectedly I was sharing plants and planting more flowers in my front flower bed and in the back one and in one pot to boot. I also gave my neighbour a hand pulling weeds and preparing her flower bed to plant the flowers. There was plenty to fill her flower bed and to add more to mine. So grateful. Very kind. I thought it would be nice to give thanks by giving her a hand written “thank you” note and also a bag of my favourite fruit tea. So that is exactly what I did. Also good to give thanks.

Okay definitely have to go here. Have a wonderful Monday.

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

Always, Love Carol & Alvin

Welcome to December 2020.

Good Morning ALL. How are you today? We are at “6” sleeps away from Christmas Eve and one week day is Christmas Day. Wow, where did the time go. Thankfully I have all of the main things ready and if we had to celebrate today – I would be ready. Of course, with a week to go there is time to tweak things a bit if need be. A little off topic but so on topic is what we are wearing. You might be shaking your head or lifting your brow, thinking where on earth are you going with this? Well, last night when I was laying out / choosing my clothes for today (which I have done for all of my adult life), I was thinking “what am I going to wear?” All of my sweat or comfy stretch pants are in the laundry and all I have left is dress pants or work pants as I like to refer to them OR blue jeans. To tell the truth most of my jeans have some stretch so they are pretty comfy. I ended up choosing a pair of blue jeans that have some stretch and of course my usual tank top and cardigan/sweater combo. So this morning when I went to put them on – it was like an ah-ha moment. I was thinking here are all of my work pants just “collecting dust” so to speak in my closet and seldom do I wear any of them. There are a couple that I wear once in awhile but truthfully since I have been home and more recently since fall/winter – I have been wearing sweats with a sweater /tank combo. So I have decided that if perhaps I start wearing my work clothes during the week and change after work, that possibly it will be more of a reminder to exercise more and eat less goodies. Nothing like slipping on your work pants and finding that even though they do have a bit of stretch in them ….. the waistband folds over. ARGH, yuck. I am not very happy with myself. Not this is not a major revelation as I can certainly see and feel how much I have added to this body over the years and not just this last year. It does not happen overnight although sometimes it seems that way. So I have made a promise to myself that from this day forward I am going to dress top to bottom in work appropriate clothing. Maybe it will give me more of a professional attitude as well. Let’s face it being at home has reduced that “office” mode a bit. Also might as well be wearing that half of my pant/slacks/bottom collection that I call “work attire.” No point having them hang there doing nothing. I am hopefully that this new mindset will be good for all things considered. Cannot hurt that is for sure. I have also started to wear more jewelry. I have so many pieces and for months they sat collecting dust. Usually I would wear some rings and sometimes earrings but not bracelets, watch or necklace. So I have started wearing rings, necklaces and earrings. I will work into the bracelets. It is definitely worth trying. Besides if this will be my new norm which by the way I am totally okay with, I want to make use of my wardrobe. No point wasting what you have. This will be good for body, mind and soul. The days of sweat pants are gone for now. Now perhaps once in awhile on that morning when I wake up and it is minus 30 with a windchill, the sweat pants might get called to duty but otherwise I am “dressing it up.” Yup, I am. So that was my ah-ha moment. The light bulb went off. I will keep you posted as to my progress over the next days, weeks and months. If you work from home – perhaps you may like to give this a try. Also on that day once every couple of months that I do go to the office, I will at least have something work appropriate to wear – that still fits. If you don’t wear something – sometimes by the time you do, it does not fit. Food for thought. Perhaps I even brought a smile to your face. Hope so.

Well that Mr. Alvin is sitting impatiently at the office door …. whimpering a bit so I guess that means it is time to head back downstairs. Not like we haven’t been up already – several times. 3:00, 5:00 and 6:45 and then 6:53. That is a typical morning in our household.

Time to go and plug in the coffee which I prepared earlier when I was UP.

Wishing you a wonderful Friday. We will continue to live our lives with respect, kindness and compassion for all others.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Second Half of the NEW YEAR – last quarter

Hello All, what a morning or rather what a night. It would appear that Mr. Alvin may have another ear infection or it may be that the rainy weather has flared the arthritis in his paws. He even did the butt drag for a moment a few minutes ago. Clearly something is wrong so off to the vet we go. I will call them as soon as they are open and fingers crossed that I can get in today. I cannot go another night with not much sleep. Work is hectic and I am pooped as it feels like things are coming at me from all directions. Did I say work is hectic that is perhaps the biggest understatement of all time. Okay perhaps I am exaggerating just a bit as I am feeling a bit sleep deprived. The wind is blowing this morning and it has been raining. Today is supposed to be +11 degrees celsius. Now that is a beautiful day. Hopefully the sun comes out as I do not wish to be walking Alvin to the vet for an ear appointment in the rain. He does have a raincoat and perhaps I could wrangle him into it as he is now comfortable with his new sweater.

We did enjoy a wonderful walk yesterday at lunchtime. The air was warm with a tinch of coolness but comfortable for walking. Alvin strutted along in his new sweater not giving any clue that just the days before he was not happy about wearing it. I am glad that he calmed down and loves it now.

How are you doing today? Tuesday morning? Are you working? Home or at the office? Or perhaps you are a front lines worker. Isn’t it funny we never or rarely heard that term but now it is every day. Life has changed so much since the the early part of the year. Does not even seem possible that I have been working home for almost one year. Wow.

I forgot that our time changes this weekend on Sunday, I believe. We FALL back one hour.

I just see red lights out by the garage and realized that it is the garbage guys. That would not be much fun picking up trash in the dark. Not much fun at all. Could be dangerous. I did not see any lights on the side but there must be as not everyone has lights down the back lane.

I am going to end this post as my brain is a bit foggy for lack of sleep. I hope and trust that everything will work out for each and every one of us. Things may not be perfect but that is okay. Life is a new perfect now. Change is the new norm. Whether that is good, bad or indifferent, I have not decided.

Take Care, be safe. Live with as much respect and kindness that you can fit into your days and your life. I believe that this is how we shall survive.

I/We shall remain, as always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. on the upside it is four sleeps until Halloween and five until Christmas, I mean my Christmas Tree goes up and I decorate the house.

Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 20th day of July 2020.

The sun is shining brightly here in Edmonton.

The sky is a bright blue (no rain clouds).

The morning air remains cool and refreshing and there is only the slightest hint of a breeze.

 

Well our household is not back to normal.

Perhaps it never will.

Mr. Alvin and I slept on the sofa last night.

I figured one less time he would have to go upstairs and I have been carrying him down.

So have to keep that to a minimum.

He never has liked me to be out of sight and now even less.

It took us awhile to get settled down.

He did jump off the sofa last night and cried as he made contact with the floor.

Walking over to his bed on the floor he laid down.

I then laid back down on the sofa but a bit later he came back to the sofa for the night.

It was warm in the house even with the window open a crack.

So I decided at one point to turn on the fan.

Once we settled down we both slept.

This morning we did all of our main floor routine before coming upstairs.

I figured that I would just come upstairs in time to brush my teeth and wash my face, get dressed, write this post and then go to work.

I can then slip downstairs to grab my coffee and he usually stays up here anyway so that should work.

By the time coffee break comes it will be about four hours since he went for a bathroom break so I will have to carry him downstairs.

Very carefully I might add.

 

Most of our day yesterday was good as we had lots of company.

Two of my friends came in the morning for coffee and then my daughter came for a visit as well.

I always enjoy spending time with the girls.

 

We did not go out for a walk but I am hoping to try again today.

I think they are forecasting about 25 degrees today so it will be a late afternoon early evening walk.

Likely just a short one …. I don’t want to push him.

I understand as well that he is getting older.

He turned 11 in January so that makes him 11.5 years old.

Now that was an approximate date but not out by much, I don’t think.

Last night I also texted with one of my friends from Regina.

I am not sure why we didn’t just call each other but texting is beginning to be a habit for us all.

Even though it takes longer to get a thought across and then there is spell check and don’t get me started on that “feature.”

 

So I guess as I recently read in a post by Maria Shriver …. take one day at a time, sometimes half a day or sometimes one hour at a time….

Not exact words but you get the idea.

I really enjoy reading posts and Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper.

She just makes sense to me.

 

I need that coffee this morning.

This weekend was a revelation as well.

I had decided just at the end of last week to change my August vacation from two weeks to one.

Then with the recent events starting with the after hours calls on Thursday night and then Alvin and with help with my daughter; I realized that I do need to take two weeks vacation.

It has been a long haul and with recent events, I need a nice break.

Time to do my thing even if that thing is just relaxing with Alvin.

So I emailed my Manager to see if I can once again change my mind.

I hope that it is not a big deal.

Sometimes we don’t realize just how close we are to “that point” until someone tells us.

That point has arrived and if I want to stay healthy in body, mind and soul, I have to look after me.

I have to stop always putting everyone and everything in front of my needs.

Meaning that if I do not look after me first – then how can I look after anyone or anything else.

That sounds better.

Man, I need to run and grab that coffee.

 

We had another two big storms yesterday.

One about 5 p.m. and the other a short time later.

Lots of heavy rainfall, thunder and lightning.

I don’t think that the storms are helping Alvin much either.

Seems like everything just has come to a head this weekend.

 

I have learned so much this weekend.

I do hope and pray that Alvin recovers quickly and in full.

Thinking that his days of jumping up and down from the bed, sofa, chair and possibly stairs might be over.

Perhaps he will be able to do the stairs with some help.

Definitely not onto the hard floor even though I have strategically placed mats with padding in the places where he goes up and down.

These past few months have been full of change.

I have been trying to roll with it and find my way.

I guess we all have …..

 

Time to go and grab my coffee.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Please keep Alvin in your thoughts and with positive energy.

I will monitor him for one more day and if no change back to the vet tomorrow …..

Big sigh from the boy as he lays on his bed not far away from me.

Living with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning,

It is quiet in the house and in the neighbourhood at this hour.

We had a lovely visit and supper with Teddy and Aunt J.

Supper was in honour of her visits to Mexico.

Soft tacos.

Nothing like tomatoes, onions, lime, avocado, refried beans, cheese and more.

I love the smell of LIME.

One of my favourite things.

Reminder to pick up some limes on my next grocery shop.

I always enjoy our visits and our conversations.

Always learning something new.

I did not know that she became a certified SCUBA DIVER after the age of 50.

How cool is that for a prairie girl!

Not like there are oceans close by for diving.

It was a great story how that came to be.

Quite by accident.

Won a contest with a trip to a tropical climate.

The forecast was rain during the time that she was to be on the island.

She did not wish to sit around all week in her room; so she booked scuba diving lessons and the rest is history.

You never know what can happen.

Nothing planned.

 

Well today is organizing a book party for Steeped Tea.

With Christmas coming …. my customers will be wanting to pick up some items.

Great gift ideas as well.

I love our Hot Chocolate.

MMMMMM

 

I also see lots of shovelling in my future.

We have almost as much as the first time we shovelled.

The third time now ……

 

If the temperature is okay we might head out for a walk.

Likely will be short as they have not plowed the path around the park.

Not everyone gets out and shovels.

So many folks just leave the sidewalks covered in snow all winter long.

I am fortunate most of my neighbours do shovel.

Some may take a bit longer than others but it gets done.

 

I snapped some photos last night at bed and this morning.

Love taking photos of the SNOW.

Especially the fresh stuff.

 

 

Well I guess it is time to hit the shower.

Might be important to “smell good,” just in case someone comes to visit.

Oh, I am kidding.

I always smell good.

Just freshen up.

Don’t you find that a showers gives you energy?

I do.

Then coffee and breakfast

and

then

SHOVELLING.

Exercise.

Perfect order.

 

Happy Sunday.

With kindness and respect I shall live this day and my life.

 

Always, Carol & Al

Living … One day at a time.

Hello and it is a misty rainy kind of Tuesday morning.

Well finally after over one week the “Poopy Saga” or “The Poop Report” as my sister would say; is nearing an end.

I would say in the last chapter.

Yesterday I stayed home with Mr. Alvin as he was up and down all Sunday night.

After much debate and advice I started Mr. Alvin on 1/3 cup of each his wet food, chicken and white rice.

Happy to report that in the afternoon the poop is beginning to return to normal.

Still a bit away but well going in the right direction.

 

There is also some reason that Mr. Alvin does not want to do the second part of his business in the backyard.

Not sure why.

He always has up until the last few days.

So after watching him in the backyard to see if he was …. he was not.

After our breakfast and I wrote in my gratitude journal …. I donned a coat and got him ready to head outside.

We just went across the street as it is a corner lot and there is a long strip of grass that is not “directly in someone’s yard.”

Walked back and forth up and down the sidewalk for about ten minutes.

Nothing.

It is misting outside …. yup not really rain but a fine mist.

Did not feel cold out.

Back into the house and I had to have a shower and get ready for my return to work.

Yikes, I have spent more time in the last more than six weeks away from work than at work.

Between vacation and then time at home with Mr.Alvin.

Oh well, I will be busy but that is okay.

 

Last night we slept until about 12:30 and then he wanted to go outside.

So out we went.

After that we hit the sofa for the remainder of the night.

He did try his best to have me up and down but I knew he really did not need to go out.

Just a habit …. after being sick and getting used to me being at his every call.

We had a good night sleep.

Thankfully.

 

Well back to the office.

That is a whole nother story.

Some normal will be nice.

Our normals are all very much different.

 

I hope that Mr. Alvin has a great day.

I hope that I do, as well.

I wish you a great day.

 

Spreading kindness with respect is the only way to live your life.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
