It is a NEW YEAR.

Well Good Morning All,

It is windy, overcast and warm here in Edmonton.

This morning I am hosting the birthday party for one of my younger friends.

I was hoping to have the party on the deck but it appears that I will have to wait until the last minute due to the skies and wind.

Perhaps we shall have coffee on the deck and grab our snacks from the house and just take them outside.

Time will tell.

There is a few minutes less than 2 hours till start time.

There will be four of us ladies as the birthday girl is bringing her Mother.

I have not seen her for awhile so it will be nice to catch up.

I have already prepped our snack which is a fruit tray of strawberries, blueberries and watermelon.

Actually three bowls filled with the delectable fruits.

The bowls are tupperware and so colourful.

I thought if we were outside, with lids would keep bugs out more easily.

All taste so yummy as I had to try them while I was getting them washed and prepped.

It has been a bit since I had watermelon and it is ripe.

The watermelon as well as the berries are from COSTCO.

Will be sending watermelon home with the girls as it is just at the perfect eating stage and will not last for long.

I am hoping that it is okay this morning after I cut up half of the large melon early last evening.

We are also having a strawberry shortcake from COSTCO.

It looks so good.

Nice and light and yummy.

We will have coffee as our liquid refreshment.

One of the girls not the birthday girl is very fussy about her drink so she always brings along her tea bag.

I have tried to convert her to Steeped Tea over the last five years but to no avail other than she loves our Sangria teas in ginger ale.

Well help from my daughter yesterday we gave Alvin one of his best hair cuts ever.

With her help the hair cut was done in just a bit over one hour and then the bath took a handful of minutes compared to the usual 3+ hours by myself.

He looks so handsome.

Perhaps I should have snapped a photo, cannot believe that I forgot.

She also helped with a few other chores around the house.

I feel like I did not get much housework done like washing the floors and dusting.

The floor honestly look okay and dusting …. well there are not many dust bunnies hanging around.

With my injured foot, I have been trying to be a good girl and stay off it here and there.

As my son-in-law said yesterday when he came to pick up my daughter …. “it looks like it” ….. meaning not really.

It is hard to keep me down especially when I have company company.

The bruises were definitely more prominent yesterday as the day progressed and even this morning.

My baby toe and the next one are badly bruised with the little one taking the brunt of the injury.

The top almost half of my foot from my toes upward is bruised.

Definitely looks worse than it feels.

I really have not had much pain but I am blessed as I have a high tolerance.

Which I suppose can also be a problem.

Anyway, other than taking it slow up and down the stairs and I am good.

I elevate the foot when I am sitting down.

Icing it from time to time.

 

Alvin for some unknown reason, decided to be up multiple times during the night from about 11:00 p.m. onward.

We were up to stay up just before 7:30 a.m. so I feel a bit on the tired side.

Perhaps an afternoon nap will be in store for us later.

He is napping now.

 

Well I suppose that I should hit the shower and get dressed.

I want to have a cup of coffee before the girls arrive.

Make sure that I have things ready although I will say that having my friends over is less stressful.

We are pretty laid back when it comes to our get togethers.

I have the gift wrapped and the card written up.

Cake and goodies are ready.

Just have to make the coffee and decide on where I am going to set up.

I actually wrote on the “new section of the fence” in chalk “Happy Birthday ….. ” and drew some flowers (my version of a flower).

I have a birthday banner and I will hang it after my shower.

So wherever we are you will know it is a birthday.

Long gone are the days of balloons and streamers.

I do not like balloons and do not use them anymore.

Bad for animals and for the environment.

 

Okay time to fly here.

It is almost 8:30 and I have a short list of things that I would like to do before the guests arrive.

 

I hope that you have an awesome Sunday.

Living with kindness and respect,

I/We remain,

As Always Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Saturday Morning!

Do you or have you ever had a day when from the moment you woke up you just felt incredibly happy!

More so than the usual daily happiness!

That deep to the core feeling that all was well, really well, it was great.

You felt good.

Your trusty companion was finally over the “worse” of whatever it was he was that kept him from being his best health.

The morning had started out raining.

The finishing touches on the fence were to be done at 10:00 a.m. and were pushed ahead to 1:00 p.m.

This did not diminish my overwhelming feelings of happiness, joy.

I had decided to take my morning 15 minute break from work a bit later as my friend was filling my grocery order from COSTCO.

She would drop it off and then I would put it away on my 15.

All worked out.

I was working away.

It was a great Friday morning.

I guess it was after 10:30 when she rang the doorbell.

I went down the stairs as my office is upstairs to unlock the door and quickly brought in the items as she brought them to the porch.

We chatted for a second, I thanked her profusely, and she left to put away her groceries.

After she was gone, I went upstairs to advise my Supervisor that I was taking my break now.

I had grabbed my coffee and my phone and continued to go downstairs.

Somehow I slipped, lost my footing and down I went.

I managed to hold onto my coffee (not spilling a drop) but dropped my phone as I slid on a angle down several steps.

My left foot stopped me just before the bottom landing.

Alvin started barking, he knew something was wrong.

It felt like I was in a dream, almost like an out of body experience, which seems strange as I type these words.

But it did feel very unusual.

I could tell that my left foot was not in it’s usual happy place as I began to regain composure.

In that moment there was pain for sure, not unbearable.

I was mad at myself knowing full well at that point that the next day or so would not be the same.

So I slowly made my way into the living to sit on the sofa.

I texted my daughter so that she would know what had happened and a bit later I texted my friend as well.

During the next few minutes I put away the groceries that needed to be refrigerated.

Some things I just left out.

Alvin and I managed to get outside so he could go pee.

Then I went upstairs very carefully and quite slowly to send a message to my supervisor to advise what happened.

After a bit, I went back upstairs to work.

The chap that was working on fence was coming at 1:00 p.m. so I decided to take a late lunch.

So I slightly elevated my foot while continuing to work.

The pain was easily bearable.

Later I took a couple of over the counter painkillers.

I received a text just before 1:00 that he was here to continue on the fence and I quickly told him what had happened knowing it would take me a few extra minutes to get back downstairs.

I advised my supervisor that I was taking lunch.

Then out we went, I opened the garage door so he could back his truck into the garage for easy access to his tools.

After a few minute chat back into the house we went.

While I was taking a break, my manager called to see how I was doing.

She mentioned that I should have a chat with our HR guy about the incident in case I had to report to WCB.

I said after lunch I would do so.

After my 45 minutes was over back to work I went.

Spoke to the HR guy and as it turned out did not have to complete WCB forms as it was not a “workplace injury.”

Not sure why as I am working from home and was on a paid break when it happened.

Anyway, that’s okay, whatever.

I had thought that I would take the rest of the afternoon off but then got busy and kept on working until the end of my shift at 4:00 p.m.

Just about the time I was finished so was the chap working on my fence.

So it worked out perfectly.

Over the next few hours I tried to stay off my feet but not realistic.

Anyway I fed Alvin and we had to skip yet another walk, argh.

I put my supper in the oven to cook and elevated my foot on a pillow.

In between somewhere I put out a call for an ice pack as the ones that I had just did not work on my foot no matter what I did.

I was just eating my supper when I received a text.

My friend who picked up my groceries – came to the rescue bringing me the perfect pliable “Barbie” ice pack and a couple of others.

Then finishing up supper, I did the dishes, cleaned up and made some tea.

After that I sat down and iced my toes while watching “Love it or List it.”

Quiet night.

About 9:00 p.m. we started to get ready for bed.

I was happy to lay down.

What a day …..

You never know what will happen.

Life can change in a blink of an eye.

Well I had better get going here.

I want to show you some fence photos.

Might even throw in a “toe photo.”

My foot had turned a light shade of purple after the fall.

The toes were swollen for a time.

I noticed at bedtime that my smallest toe is black and blue and it is a bit swollen.

Still this morning.

 

Okay photos.  Alvin needs a haircut and bath.

My daughter is coming to help me.

I am hosting a birthday party for one of my “young friends.”

So lots to do.

Hoping to have it on the deck.

I have a birthday present to wrap.

House to clean.

Cake was purchased.

A fruit platter to prepare.

Fresh strawberries, blueberries and watermelon.

The cake is a strawberry shortcake from COSTCO.

It looks so good.

One more day.

So much to do.

 

Finally got all of the fence photos from beginning to end for you to see.

Also added on of my ugly toe injury (I do not have pretty feet).

For some beauty, I added a photo of our tree.

 

Next spring the fence will be painted, there will be mountains of colourful flower pots filling in the deck space.

I will have a new umbrella or two for my tables.

But life is good.

Just a bit tender this morning.

Alvin, is sticking close by and keeping an eye on his Momma.

Time for coffee and some toast.

The sun is shining and there is a cool breeze coming in through the open office window.

Alvin will be receiving a haircut and bath in the next little bit.

The first load of laundry has been started.

I was very careful and holding onto the railing on the stairs going both up and down.

Lesson learned.

Slowly wins the race.

 

With kindness and respect,

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Mr.  Alvin

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to a BRIGHT SUNNY DAY here in Edmonton.

I hope that it is bright and sunny wherever you may be.

Today is the day finally that our fence gets repaired.

Work starts at 9:00 a.m. or rather the workman arrives at 9:00 a.m.

Hopefully it can be finished today or at the latest tomorrow at noon.

I would not wish there to be a space in our fence overnight.

 

Quick story:  last night after work when we arrived home from our walk.

Humphrey was out front.

The boys went nose to nose to say hello.

Humphrey followed us home.

I stopped to fix the drainpipe.

The boys were on their leashes and waiting by the steps.

When I was done.

They both ran up the steps.

It was then that I realized that Humphrey’s leash was not hooked to anything.

He went into the house with us, all safe and sound.

WOW, that was a close one.

His Momma was grateful.

Timing again, is everything.

Right place at the right time.

 

Yesterday the weather was beautiful in between the rain so we took advantage and went for two walks.

Today we will miss the noon walk as we will have the workman here fixing our fence.

I am so excited to have that done, finally.

 

With the rain, the grass just turned the most gorgeous shade of green.

My favourite “kelly green.”

I love greens, most greens with the exception of khaki, not a big fan.

The trees are swaying in any breeze in a rhythm all of their own.

The sweet smell of the trees that are in flower is intoxicating.

I love the birth of a new year.

Spring should be the beginning of the year with all of the renewal of life.

 

I feel like some flower photos …..

Nothing like colour to boost the day….

Flowers from previous years living in Edmonton.

I love flowers.

They are one of my most favourite things on this planet.

Thank you for the flowers.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

Work is calling.

Coffee is ready to be poured.

 

Soon the workman will arrive.

 

Wishing you all a glorious day.

May you be surrounded with beautiful flowers.

 

Wishing you a continued live of kindness and respect.

I/We remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning Everyone!

The sky is a patchwork quilt of deep blue and light blue clouds.

It is windy and cool.

Not a great morning to start the repairs on my fence but it is nonetheless the start day.

It has been delayed due to personal matters on the repairman’s side and then time delay this morning as I have a 9:00 a.m. morning.

The start time was to have been 9:00 a.m. but I didn’t think that would work out if I am in a meeting as I have to open the garage door etc.

Anyway with much luck from Mother Nature the work will begin today and hopefully end early tomorrow.

Not a huge job but big enough for sure.

 

Good news on the Alvin front.

Finally the closest to a normal poop that my boy has had since May 13th, 2020.

I will be so glad to get back to our new norm.

That seems to be an ever changing thing these days.

 

I am hopefully that we will get news on the return date to work.

Deep well not that deep in my heart, I am hoping that we will stay home until the end of August, 2020.

There are many people with children and with the schools closed and daycares closed, who looks after the children.

Not everyone has a parent or family members that is able to do this.

Hopefully we then have some more nice weather.

 

Every morning or most mornings Alvin stands by the fence that separates us from Humphrey and his Mom.

He loves his friend, Humphrey the cat.

They usually have a little visit by the fence everyday.

I guess we can all learn a lesson from animals.

Traditionally cats and dogs do not really get along but look at these guys.

They love being together.

Both are excited to see each other.

I can always tell when it has been a few days.

If we have a rainy spell and no one is really outside ….. man, are they happy to see each other.

When Humphrey visits, they both line up at the pantry door wanting a treat.

Everyone that comes to visit knows where the treats are located.

Man and Beast alike.

Too strong of words.

Okay, my daughter, grandpups, Alvin, Humphrey and Teddy to name a few.

That sounds much better.

 

Hey, if you have not heard of “PLUTO LIVING” – please go and check out YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Pluto is the cutest little dog and with help from Mom, well they are the best team to come out of Canada or anywhere in decades.

Great at giving us the news, telling funny stories, giving advice, poetry and so much more.

But most of all bringing us great joy through laughter in these uncertain and sometimes scary times.

Please seek them out you will not be sorry.

Take the time, please.

 

Well it is now time to get to work.

I have such a long, long, long commute.

I think it might be two regular steps, no maybe less from my personal computer and space to my work computer and space.

ARGH, so tough, I know.

No complaints, really.

Alvin is resting comfortably on his little bed that I made with some fluffy towels and two nice blue warm blankets.

Oh, I see the sun shining now that is a great sign.

Still pretty windy and hopefully that does not bring in any storms or hamper the work for today.

 

I wish you a day filled with love and laughter.

I wish you an easy Wednesday.

Perhaps time for a walk.

Enjoy.

 

I will continue to live my life with kindness and respect.

As I am human sometimes I have moments where I may be less than perfect.

But I will always try by best to be a good soul with a warm heart living with kindness and respect to myself and most of all to others.

 

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

I need a haircut as my hair looks nothing like this photo.

I do like this photo of me and I am not a huge fan of photos of me.

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Monday Morning.

What an absolutely gorgeous morning it is.

Alvin wanted to just sit on the deck and take in the morning but alas I have to go to work and that just is not possible.

The bright early morning sunshine has disappeared behind a bit of cloud cover but I believe it is temporary.

The forecast is for fairly mild temperatures with some clouds over the week.

We will take that.

 

I was able to upload/download some photos.

My flowers and the boys relaxing.

I just ran downstairs to grab some coffee as the photos was uploading to my photos on this blog.

Alvin was certainly enthralled with something out front as he gazed out the living room window.

I took a peek and it was a bunny.

He just stood there and checked him/her out.

No barking.

No growling.

Just silent gazing.

So proud of my boy.

 

Tomorrow the fence gets repaired, so happy about that.

Well it is almost time to begin work.

How did that happen?

 

We had such a wonderful weekend.

I hope you did as well.

 

Happy Monday.

Enjoy your coffee or morning beverage, whatever it may be.

Living with kindness and respect no matter what.

We just have to.

 

I/We, shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning ALL,

What a glorious beautiful sunny warm morning.

The birds are chattering away and life is good.

I am so happy to wake up to sunshine.

We have been up for awhile.

Slowly and methodically enjoying each moment of this beautiful morning.

Yesterday was a great day.

Alvin had a poop …. getting closer to normal.

I am waiting for him to poop again today.

He seems more like his old self as each day passes.

I can tell with his reactions to people and with his friend Humphrey, the cat.

We had a much better sleep last night, thank goodness.

My daughter stopped by to pick up her NORWEX order and to drop off some items that I needed.

She also had a great surprise for her Momma.

Guess what she brought me?

One of my favorite things in the whole wide world.

FLOWERS.

She brought me some impatiens and some petunias and snapdragons.

We had a wonderful pancake breakfast following by planting.

It has been a few years since we actually planted flowers together.

The sun was shining and the temperature was warm enough on the deck for me to be in short sleeves.

I am so happy.

Also I transplanted my geranium, only sadly to find out that this plant is very toxic to dogs and cats.

Alvin has never really paid much attention to plants but I have to make some decisions.

Thinking of moving it into a safe spot.

Where not sure.

In the meantime, I keep a careful idea on the fur babies when they are on the deck.

Now with the flowers ….. it looks like summer.

I was over the moon happy to have time with my daughter and to plant flowers on a sunny day plus Alvin having a better poop.

Life does not get better than this ….. so happy.

I was trying to upload/download the photos from my phone but am experiencing technical difficulties so will be for another day.

Time to go and have coffee and some toast and honey.

Alvin is signalling that he wants to go back outside.

The simple things in life are the best.

If we try not to overthink, overdo, stress about things to much, everything will work out.

I know this…..

Keep it simple.

 

I hope that you have a glorious Sunday.

Enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

Sit on your deck, patio or by an open window with your cup of coffee.

Turn on your favourite tunes.

Breathe and enjoy.

 

With so much respect and kindness sent to you on this day and always,

I/We remain,

As Always, Carol & Mr. Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Welcome to Friday morning and it is raining and windy here in Edmonton.

Started to rain in the early evening.

Not constant.

 

How are you this morning?

I am well.

Couple of things.

We were up I would say about 5:00 a.m.

Alvin had his breakfast and did his business in the backyard of course.

Then we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

I must have fell into a fairly deep sleep quickly as I had the most unusual dream.

When we woke up and I started to write in my “Gratitude Journal,” I found myself writing quickly about this dream.

Some of the details were fresh in my memory.

Which is unusual for me.

I madly wrote them down and filled the page before I knew it.

I made connections with some things that happened over the course of the day.

The premise of the dream was: I was in my Grandmother’s house in the small town where she lived decades ago (I lived there at one point with her).

There was this dog, not Alvin.

I had given him a haircut which was a perfect replica of a dog, a clone.

Not even the same dog.

After it dropped to the counter or whatever the surface was, it basically came alive.

From just what would have been a haircut.

The original dog was not hurt or anything but now there were two dogs.

I remember being frightened of this second dog but it was so cute.

There were a great many things that happened in this dream.

There was another woman with me with the dogs.

Almost feels like other people but I am not sure.

At one point I am sitting in the passenger side of a white SUV.

Waiting for someone.

It was winter out as I remember seeing snow.

We were pulled over near a sidewalk.

There were two Real Estate Agents with signs that opened the back door of the SUV and were in and out with their signs as they tried to put them up.

When I finally had enough and climbed into the driver’s seat, they yelled “don’t run him over” and there was this third Real Estate Agent behind the car.

It was odd and creepy and weird.

I looked for traffic as a car slowed and waited for me to pull out.

The street that I turned onto was busy but I finally got turned.

When I turned the street some cigarettes started to fall out of a little nook in the steering column near the wheel.

OMG, strange.

I remember hearing a conversation between the woman and the house and another …. the woman was explained some things …. I don’t remember the details now.

But she called me the B word.

Yikes.

Well that is it.

That was an odd one.

So I have been watching a lot of “Love It or List It,” lately.

I saw a white SUV drive by yesterday.

The second dog was PLUTO the newest Canadian sensation.

I recognized the town as where I lived for a short time with my Grandma.

She lived there for more than 25 years.

 

Anyway, I was going to post some photos and I see by the clock on the “wall” that it is almost time for me to grab my coffee and start the work computer.

I might try and post a few from the week that was …..

 

I was trying to snap some artistic photos of my flowers and a glass flower from different angles.

Well some turned out better than others.

Then there was Alvin and Humphrey on the deck.

You can see Humphrey sitting on the deck post with the beautiful sunrise behind him.

My first ever BUBBLE TEA sold my Steeped Tea of course.

Well that was the week that was …..

 

I hope that you had a great one.

Remember to live in kindness and respect.

We got this.

 

I/We Remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

Second last day of April.

Can you believe it?

Today is a great day for many reasons.

My kitchen tap is getting fixed today.

Hip Hip Hooray.

So excited.

My daughter is popping by for a visit and lunch.

No hugging, I know.

Keeping the proper distance, we shall.

One of my friends is picking me up some light bulbs.

Then there shall be light.

So a great day.

I was lazy as we were first up just before 4 p.m.

Then up a couple of times afterward until up at 6:30 a.m.

Which is super late for us.

So running a bit late.

In this case, I am going to share some cheery photos.

Who does not like green, flowers and pets? and perhaps some geese?

I apologize.

Sometimes you just need that extra bit of zzz’s.

 

Greens, anyone?

Two friends just looking out of the window

Mr. Dave, gone but not forgotten.

A true gent.

Penny, Alvin and Elton.

Always looking for a bit to eat, a treat.

Miss Penny and Sir Elton gone to heaven.

Our little angels.

Two of my favourites: Mr. Alvin and Flowers.

Who does not like pretty colours dancing on the wall.

Ah, Mama’s boy…….isn’t he cute!!!

 

Well time to fly downstairs and grab my coffee.

Then to work.

I have a meeting this morning and lots of work to do.

This afternoon I am off as my kitchen tap is getting fixed.

So happy about that.

A visitor, too.

Great day.

Bit of work and a bit of play.

 

Wishing you days filled with kindness and respect,

I/We remain,

As Always, Carol & MR. Alvin

 

 

 

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning ALL,

A bright sunny morning.

As you may have noticed I am posting this a bit later than my usual.

That is because today is my shift to work from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Our team shares the after hours phone line from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

But today I have been requested to attend a meeting that starts at 10:30 a.m. so I will sign on about 10:15 or perhaps a few minutes sooner.

Just to ensure that I get everything ready.

So this will be a mixed up day.

My first break won’t be until 1:00 and then “lunch” will be at 3:00 p.m. and final break about 5:00 p.m. so that I can feed Alvin.

The Hello Fresh food order is supposed to arrive today but I won’t be making that tonight or else I will be eating way too late.

Also UPS did not deliver my Steeped Tea order yesterday so I will have to look into that and see what happened.

My coffee is perking away and should be ready momentarily for me to enjoy.

Even this one day with different hours reminds me of my time in retail.

Working all sorts of shifts.

It does take some getting used to that is for certain.

I have the office window open a crack and can hear a goose honking.

Perhaps he or she got separated from the flock.

It sounded like a cry of desperation.

I hope the poor goose finds her/his flock.

Not great to be separated from the group for sure.

 

Yesterday was gorgeous.

We enjoyed another two walks.

One at lunch break and the other after work.

Although I did finish work a bit later than usual.

 

Last night I snapped some photos of my plants.

I am smitten with my pink geranium.

Actually all of my plants are doing quite well at this time.

The time is getting closer to transplanting the geranium outside.

I will likely place it in the biggest pot that I have …..

 

One lone goose just flew by …. honking away.

Perhaps the other may have been more than one as the honking was quite substantial.

 

Well friends time to get this day going.

We were able to sleep in, had breakfast, I had a shower, my post is almost complete -COFFEE TIME.

Hopefully my tea order will arrive today.

The Hello Fresh food order arrives today.

YAY.

 

In life, if we all practice daily, living with kindness and respect.

We shall manage to live our lives just fine.

There will always be ups and downs.

That is for sure.

 

Take care.

 

With kindness and respect to and for all,

I/We remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Happy Monday Morning Everyone.

No colourful sunrise as yet but am hopeful that we shall see some sunshine today.

More snow yesterday and overnight.

 

Yesterday I snapped a couple of closeups of Mr. Alvin.

Is he not the cutest boy?

He has such a cute innocent face.

His eyes …. I guess only one is visible…

When I am eating something and he comes up close with his face and turns on the cuteness …. those brown eyes can melt you into a puddle.

 

A Story of Six Bunnies

Over the past few days I have become enthralled with the bunnies that gather in the nighttime on our front lawn.

Okay, on the front snow covered lawn area.

Last night as I started to turn off the lights in the house before we went upstairs to bed, I noticed five rabbits out front of our house.

One came bounding over to join them.

We watched the bunnies as they munched away on the food that my neighbour so graciously has left for them.

It has been a hard winter for these little ones with all this snow.

At one point in the second photo, I saw two of the rabbits leaving the group to the other side of the street.

They stopped along the side where there was an abundance of soft fresh snow (not packed down by traffic).

One of the bunnies laid down and rolled around in the snow.

Well yes he/she certainly did roll.

Then jumped up while the other bunny watched.

I giggled as I watched the playfulness of the bunny.

The little one did this a few times before continuing to the other side of the road.

I figured perhaps I could grab some better photos so we raced upstairs and I took the photo on the left.

The one on the right captures the two bunnies, the one on the left was the one playing in the snow.

 

This morning from our bedroom window.

Appears to have been a party happening in our front yard (my neighbour and ours together).

The tracks filled the front yard or at least most of it.

There are tracks from every direction.

There was lots of good food and good company.

I should have put out some liquid refreshment.

 

Well that is what was happening in our neck of the woods as Al Roker would say.

I am an Al Roker fan (Today Show).

 

Well the time is passing and is almost time to start working.

 

In addition to watching the bunnies yesterday I made another banana cranberry orange with coffee spice load and a massive pot of the best chili ever.

I am so proud of both.

Good eatings ahead.

 

Time for caffeine …..

Have an awesome day.

 

It is the small things in life that mean the most.

A snuggle with Alvin.

Video chat with my daughter.

Text from my sister.

Fresh made banana loaf.

Smell of chili bubbling away on the stove.

A bunny rolling in the fresh snow.

Fresh perked cup of coffee.

 

Time to go.

 

As Always, I/We

Carol & Alvin
