The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! I believe today is Friday but quite honestly I am mixed up on my days due to the start of this week. I am so relieved that situation is over. Guess what I did but was a bit anxious about – Alvin was up at 4:00 ish to go for a pee and have his glucosamine chew and we did manage to get back upstairs to bed but then he woke up at 5:22 and wanted his breakfast so once he once done he was firm in his stance and would not go back upstairs – he went beside the sofa and asked to be helped up. Politely. So taking a deep breath, I helped him up, turned off the lights, took off my glasses and set down and then grabbed our favourite red fluffy blanket laid down beside him on the sofa. My heart was racing for a minute or so and then with him beside him, I settled down. I would not say that I had a great “nap” but it was okay. A start back to our normal routine. As norm as any are these days.

I noticed that it is snowing as we have a nice little bright white blanket covering everything.

Yesterday my friend asked if I needed any groceries so I asked for her to pick up cans of pumpkins and a head of cauliflower. When she dropped them off, my “early Mother’s Day” gift had arrived. I did not hear a knock or doorbell but that is okay. The gift is a replacement for my beloved coffee percolator. My kids gave me the coffee perc early due to the accidental demise of my previous one. Actually it did not owe me anything as I had it since 2009. I am going to drink my first cup of coffee from it in a minute or two (once I am finished this post). It smells good.

Please on this Friday, January 7th, 2022 – be kind and respectful to all. Have patience. Remember we do not know what they are going through. Looks can be deceiving. Be understanding and have compassion. Be grateful for what you have and who you are. Focus on those endless possibilities. Love and laugh.

Happy Friday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
