The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning. Well my anxiety level has decreased somewhat but still no capture. I have moved my workstation upstairs to my personal office and confused Mr. Alvin. He wants to be downstairs and just does not understand.

Thanks to my next door neighbour for bringing me coffee as I will have to wait to make my own until the weekend. Thanks to my daughter for ordering me a new coffee perk. I am not sure that I will be able to actually make coffee – if I can stay in the kitchen that long. Longest time I spend in there now is to get Alvin’s breakfast and supper. Yesterday my neighbour also helped me take down the Christmas tree. Which has opened up the living room space and gives me breathing room. All the other decorations remain up at this point.

Also thanks to my daughter for stopping by on her way home from work and for bringing me supper.

I am running late as I could not close my eyes without seeing you know what. Sometimes even just the mere thought drives me to the edge. I know that I have to be strong and I can get through this.

We have make contact with professionals via email and I will call them today to see what can be done. I cannot live like this for long and neither can Mr. Alvin. I realize that all these extra trips upstairs is not great for his poor legs but if need be I will carry him up and down.

I must go and get to work. Truly short commute. One chair over.

I wish you a wonderful day. With no anxieties.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to a very Windy Tuesday.

The sky was overcast earlier but is beginning to clear.

With hopes of a bright sunny day with no rain.

We do need the sunshine.

The crops and gardens need the sunshine as do the animal life including we humans.

 

Last night after work we went out for our walk.

It was super cloudy with a great chance of rain or so I thought by the looks of the sky.

But I wanted to get a second walk in if it were possible.

We were just a few doors down when I heard music turning my head to listen, I was startled by someone calling my name.

One of our friends down the street was in her front yard and was partially hidden by her tree.

She wanted to chat.

Her son had made her a new wooden television stand and she had a brand new t.v.

He did a beautiful job as the pieces of the stand were carved and then put together.

Very nice.

So we chatted and was nice to catch up.

During this time it started to pour so when we left no further walking.

We ran to our house.

I dried Mr. Alvin off including his ears.

He is prone to yeast infections in his ears if they get wet.

So always watching them.

 

Last night after supper,  I had brand new combination smoke/carbon monoxide detectors installed on all three levels of my house.

So happy to have that done.

The last ones had expired as I did not realized that they had to be replaced.

They are hard-wired HOWEVER the battery life of the detectors only last a specific amount of time before need to be replaced.

The new ones are 10 years.

2030 they will need to be replaced.

Will check the date on the box to ensure that they weren’t sitting on the shelves for a year or more.

Very happy it has been done.

Another job checked off my TO DO LIST for this summer.

I am most grateful.

 

I noticed on the front door wreath last night I had a little visitor.

I suppose he/she stopped to take a rest perhaps thinking what a pretty flower.

Sorry it was not a real flower.

So beautiful.

DRAGONFLIES are one of my most favourite creatures on this Earth.

Also reminded me to find a way to clean that wreath which is starting to look a bit on the dingy side.

 

Well time to get to work.

We were up early before settling on the sofa.

I believe it was 3:30 a.m.

I gave MR. Alvin his very last pain med with hopes that he could settle down and sleep.

I woke up with a headache.

Go figure.

So decided against coffee this morning.

Just water today.

 

Time to go.

Wishing you a great day.

Maybe something will come off your “TO DO LIST.”

Remembering always to live with kindness and respect for all living creatures and our environment.

I/We, shall remain,

Always, Carol & Mr. Alvin
