Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

Well I had an interesting day yesterday to say the least.

Who would have thought that not having cable would affect your WiFi connection for work.

Well it does and it did.

So it was a long day working remotely with one of our IT staff.

Even had to take the laptop upstairs and plug it into the MODEM/Internet Connection to see if could access.

Of course, that worked (which was a good thing).

So I learned some valuable information yesterday.

TELUS Optik is Internet.

The TELUS repair person came about 12:30 which was 1/2 hour early.

Thank goodness for that.

He also found that I had a cord attached from the External Hard Drive off my Computer to the Modem that should have not been there.

So now the green light on my External Hard Drive is not flashing yellow.

Good thing.

It was after 2 p.m. when I actually was able to start work.

When I checked phone messages for work I had 32 and then received more after that.

Wouldn’t you know that I then had issues with the phone app that we are using.

So had to change password and that worked.

It was an incredibly long and frustrating day.

Of course, Alvin was needy because I was anxious.

So this will be short as I desperately need coffee and would like to start work early.

With hopes that sometime in the not too distant future I can actually get caught up or at least relatively close.

Oh what a life.

I am most grateful to our IT guy and the guy from TELUS.

They were patient and I learned so much.

Hopefully I can remember.

Alvin is whining.

I hope that this is my productive, quiet on the phones kind of Tuesday and the rest of the week.

Fingers crossed for me ….. send me some good vibes.

I will try to remain calm, cool and collected.

 

I know that good things are coming to me and to you.

I know that my life is very blessed despite the odd blip on the screen.

I am grateful.

And I can watch television once again.

 

Wishing you all a great Tuesday.

May you be surrounded by love and support.

Kindness and respect.

 

Living with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Day TWO of working at home for me.

Well actually I was pleasantly surprised and most happy that everything went well.

I was able to do my work (there are a couple of jobs that we are not able to do at this time from home but that is okay).

We are able to take phone calls as we have a new phone system that we have had for a little while now.

With this phone system we are able to download their APP and set up on our cell/mobile phones.

So it is okay.

Phone calls are not my favourite thing to do but that is okay …

Our clients need to have multiple ways of contacting us and even more so since our office has closed to the public.

 

Yesterday one of our friends and her daughter came to take Alvin for a walk in the early afternoon.

I got him dressed including his jacket as the wind was cool.

He seemed like he was happy to be going out.

I watched from the living room window as they went down the steps and tried to go onto the public sidewalk.

They were on the sidewalk and Alvin was still half way down the sidewalk looking back at the house.

He has separation issues, clearly.

After a few minutes they walked back to the house, Alvin stood on the porch and whined.

I opened the door and his walk was over.

I felt bad as they were really excited to take him for a walk.

He knows them both really well as we see them all the time.

Anyway what can you do.

We did go for a nice walk after work.

4:05 p.m. the computer was off and I was downstairs and few minutes later we were out the door.

Sure is nice not having the commute.

 

The sky is clear as the sun begins to rise.

I can smell the coffee perking and am excited to have a mug of my freshly brewed from beans coffee.

It is a good thing that today marks the beginning of the weekend.

I am pooped, all of this has been slightly exhausted.

 

Alvin was supposed to have his regular vet appointment tomorrow however, they want to close to all non-essential visits for Saturdays (weekends) and during the week.

As Alvin goes in regular and needs to have his anal glands checked out, we have an appointment today at 4:30 p.m.

I will pick up another bag of his food and his glucosamine chews.

 

Well it is almost 7:30 a.m. and 1/2 hour till I officially start work although I will start a bit early.

Getting set up ….. and all.

 

Please keep an eye on any seniors or friends/family/neighbours that have mobility issues …. checking with them daily by phone, text or even if you set up a way to say hello

by going to their house, ringing the doorbell or knocking and they come to the window and wave or thumbs up.

Something ….

We need to keep an eye on each other.

Another new phrase “social distancing.”

Perhaps it is not new but I had not heard it before recently.

 

Be safe …..

Treat others and yourself with Kindness and Respect.

 

Watch some old movies for fun.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

I got the first day of spring mixed up.

It would appear that spring officially came upon us YESTERDAY.

Oh my ……

I saw a bunny with a brown tail and ears.

That is the best sign ever.
