The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? I am great now. Just had a refreshing shower and it always amazes me on what a difference water hitting your skin can make. I was debating taking the day off as I had a bit of a headache and just feeling not so, no so. Mainly because of the getting up and down multiple times during the night with a little four-legged guy who shall remain nameless, lol. Anyway I feel much better now. The sky is that brilliant blue and the sun is now shining. We had a great walk at noon with partially cloudy skies. By the time that I was finished work for the day, the sky had really clouded over. There was an in between time after supper where the sky cleared. Later in the evening the sky filled with these scary black clouds with orange in them. Likely due to the sun going down around the same time. I feared that we were going to get a terrible storm but luckily just a light show with sound and some rain. The grass is a more brilliant kelly green this morning. I love GREEN. Did I say that, yes I do. My favourite colour. The colour of life, I would say. I am grateful that neither Alvin or I are afraid of storms. He is such a trooper. In fact, when we were going out for his last pee before bed, he wanted to stay out and sniff about in the backyard despite the roaring thunder and lightning in the distance.

So today is Thursday. Oh, after work, I had planned to walk to the store. Just as I was getting ready, I noticed Alvin walked to the living window and was looking out. I saw why, Sonja had just got home from work. I saw here taking some items into the house and decided to ask if she was just going out to golf and if so, could she drop me at the grocery store as I wasn’t sure if I could get there and home without being rained on. Not that I mind getting wet. What a day. One minute clear blue skies and the next minute deep rain clouds. Anyway, Sonja loaned me her car so that I could run to the grocery store for a few items. I think I made it home in under 30 minutes. I did not need much and there were not many people in the store. Nice to get out on my own for a few minutes.

Not an exciting Wednesday night but it was a good evening.

After 19 seasons ELLEN is saying goodbye and hanging up her talk show cap. I love watching her show. I did not see every episode but I have watched a great many of them over the years. She can make you laugh right down to the core. Has the biggest heart and just a good all round person. Alvin and I want to wish her all the best in her next chapter. She will go on to do great things. I cannot wait to see and hear about what she does. This has been a heartfelt week of shows.

Okay, time to head downstairs and plug in the coffee. I am going to try a new blend. I bought from a co-worker doing a fundraiser for one of her children. I will let you know the name and how it taste tomorrow.

Have an awesome Thursday.

Enjoy …..

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I just thought of something – a thunderstorm with lightning and rain – is Mother Nature’s “Concert”. Is she ever talented.
