The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Well we had pure sunshine with a clear blue sky until a short time ago and now the clouds are rolling in. Guess what? Alvin slept until 3:45 (1st wake up) and then until the alarm went off at 6:45. I cannot believe it. Only woke up once. He never sleeps that long without eating. He ate his food with me by his side because some days he likes me right there while he eats and all the time when he drinks. Not sure if his sight is beginning to go or he is just a needy guy. Anyway, does not matter, I am thankful that he is still with me after last year so I am happy to be at his side. Work was “yucky” for lack of a better word yesterday so I was kind of grumpy last night. Not mean or yelling – just feeling sad about the whole thing. Anyway, I do not like to speak about my work so I will leave it there.

I am so grateful to have good friends and neighbours in my life, in our lives.

Everyday we prepare more for the upcoming garage sale. Some more items were brought over yesterday and last night for set up on Friday night. I think we will have a nice amount of things but not too much. I am excited for Saturday and hopefully Mr. Alvin will stay quiet and remain in the house for the most part. Hard to do a garage sale with your pup wondering about (would be on leash, of course).

We had a walk at lunch time yesterday which was great stopping at our friend Pauline’s house. She may have been at home but we did not see her. It was nice just to see her yard and all of her beautiful flowers.

Well it is almost time to start work. I sure hope that today is a quiet day “at work.”

I hope that you are well. Thank you for reading my posts. I know that some days the content may be lacking but I write in the moment – whatever comes to my mind. There are times when I have lots to say and others that I do not.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: only 47 days until that number 65th birthday …..

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of July, 2016.

The sky is a dark blue bordering on a deep grey and it is raining.

It started just before we got up at 5:00 a.m. (for Alvin, of course).

Today is my company day.

In just a few minutes at ten one of my friends “G” is coming for coffee and then after lunch my daughter is coming for a visit.

I am excited.

Then to top off the day I will Skype with my sister and nieces after supper.

Oh my gosh, a sudden down pour …. my company may be late.

Well I guess that is what umbrellas are for ….

Just felt a wave of warm …. guess those hot flashes are not totally over.

Everything in Edmonton is nice and green.

Sunshine is what we need now.

Well I should go and finish the preparations.

I hope that you are blessed enough to share some of your time with special friends and family on this day.

Happy Sunday.

Special Hello to: my friends back in Regina and all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 5th day of September, 2015.

Today is the day that my friend arrives to visit from Regina.

She is already in the city visiting with another friend.

Lucky gal … lots of friends.

The sky is clear as the rain clouds have moved on.

The sun is shining.

It is a glorious day.

This is going to be ultra short as I have a few preparations yet to complete.

Always last minute things …. it has to be perfect.

I am even going to bake some “Steeped Tea” confetti cupcakes and the house will smell awesome.

Well I had better hit the shower (get dressed – just ironed my jeans and top).

Still have to vacuum and wash all of the floors so that they are freshly cleaned.

Perhaps a bit of last minute dusting ……

Check each room …..

Write up her card to put alongside her little welcome gift that is sitting on her bed.

I am so excited ….. always great to have guests.

Well it is just after 8:30 a.m. and she will be here around noon.

Better fly …. the time will pass quickly.

Alvin is wondering who I am speaking about …..

Soon he will see her ….. Miss P.

YAY ….. it is a great weekend.

Oh, yesterday we had company …. Miss Penny and Sir Elton.

Penny has been under the weather and was doing great yesterday.

We are hoping that she will be better and in our lives for many, many years to come.

All of our babies …. we love them so much.

Okay …. quit babbling I gotta go …. so excited.

Coffee … drink … shower ….. dressed ….. Alvin what? ¬†outside ….. just a minute.

Thank you for reading my blog … I hope that you have an awesome long weekend.

Special Hello to: all those folks who have company on the way to visit …. enjoy.

Always, Carol and Alvin
