Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! Another beautiful day on the way. The sun is shining and the sky is that perfect powder blue, there is a breeze and the trees are sparkling in the rays of the sun. Oh, how I love Nature. She is glorious. Beautiful and Wondrous.

Well yesterday went okay. I was concerned that Alvin did not drink water before I left for work but my neighbour Sonja to the rescue she came over three times ensuring that he drank water, peed and had a little treat and some snuggles. I thank whomever is watching over us everyday for the wonderful people that surround me and help me to live my life. Because after all, it really does take a village. No one human is an island. We all need someone or multiple someones. He was over the moon happy to see me. The construction held us up a bit but made it home before 6:00 p.m. Well before he needed his medication. He had his breakfast at 6:00 so having his supper around 6:00 p.m. was perfect. Once again, I am so very grateful for all the Sonja’s in my life. I have the best friends and neighbours in the world. My, our family has been so supportive now and always. I am grateful for them.

Work, so it was okay. I was concerned that my tag would not let me into the building as I had some issues with it the last time that I was at the office. But it worked. I entered a dark building which was kind of freaky. There should be some lighting. It took me a few minutes to get to the lights. Then I unpacked my laptop and few items that I brought from home. Had some coffee and then a couple of staff arrived. One being my direct coworker. We had a chat about work (nothing personal). Then it was too work. I found that I have got so used to no arms on my chair that I kept hitting my elbows again the arms, kind of annoying but oh well. There were a few things that I am realizing will have to be changed as they are not comfortable. But that can be done. Working from the office back to the disruptions and distractions and noise. Oh, how I missed being at home. My daughter drove me to work and home. She works until 4:30 so I just hung around inside the office chatting with a couple of staff that were “done” but just tidying up. I had no desire to wait outside. Our downtown area is not safe at the best of times. So inside I stayed until she pulled up out front. I love the drives with her. We chat about everything. It seems to be our catch up time.

I think that we have lost the art of conversation. Chatting about the little things like maybe “where did you get that nail polish from” OR “did you notice all of the robins in the neighbourhood” OR “did you see the sunset last night.” We are so caught up in the major “dramas” in our life that the little things slip away, fall to the wayside. No time for them when we are trying to do what is expected or needs to be done. Anyway, it would be nice to have a conversation about good things, nice things, loving things and stay away from the drama. We all need to vent, I certainly get that as I do that just like the rest of the human population. Back to living in the moment. Keeping positive. Even the way we talk affects our minutes, our hours and our days on this planet. How about when the Universe seems to be giving up that little nudge, or that kick in the butt – we listen and take action. I just realized that with these recent changes that I am not listening and I need to listen. Remember your dreams. If we just sit back and let the things that we tolerate or do just because we feel there is no choice and let our dreams just be that, dreams , then we will never move forward and realize them. Nothing is perfect, for sure. But if I have learned anything in the last few weeks, months and years – if you are not happy doing something and excited to get out of bed in the morning – then you are not living your best life. Sometimes the first step is the hardest. I believe in you and me and all of us. We can do anything. WE CAN.

On that note, time to head downstairs and get that coffee plugged in, I know that I would love a cup of coffee. Time to get this life full of happiness once again. Forget just settling.

Have a glorious day!

Sunshine and rainbows.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Last Half 2022 – September

Good Morning ALL! Thank goodness the smoke has dissipated and the sky was clear a few minutes ago. There are clouds in the sky so perhaps some rain is on the way. I sure hope that they are able to put out the fires in Saskatchewan. I am thinking of all the people, domestic and wildlife that are affected by the wildfires. Always a loss of life and is incredibly sad. We were up about 2:00 a.m. and then hit the sofa until 6:00 (up and Alvin had his last transitional meal with mix of his regular food and bland diet). He has not pooped since yesterday so perhaps everything is coming together. Gross thoughts but it is the truth. An important truth. My truth, my life.

We were up to stay up just after 8:00 a.m. as I thought there is no rush, resting is good. After that we spent a few minutes outside. Bogart and Humphrey were in the backyard, Alvin wanted to be outside sniffing and looking through the fence at them. I was following Mr. Alvin around the backyard waiting for him to poop when I noticed that Bogart, like an athlete in his prime, had jumped onto the top of the fence and was looking down upon us. I called out to this Mom and we had a quick chat.

So today with the cooler temperatures, it is time to get some housework done and some things outside. I will have to check the long range forecast and see when the overnight temperatures begin to dip so that I can bring in some plants. I need to winter my geraniums. Some I think I will put in the basement and others will put in the kitchen. I like the open kitchen window area so I will not fill it up with huge plants that block the light. Look beautiful but darken the kitchen.

I have already cleaned out most of the front flower bed so that is done. The back one can wait until it is almost time for frost and then I can clean it out.

Tomorrow is Mr. Alvin’s ultrasound and that will tell me what our future looks like. I will know what needs to be look for his care and for our future. Scary how one day can possibly change your life. I have ideas but cannot go ahead until I know what his prognosis is, no point in worrying ahead of time. I know that eventually things will change as no one lives forever but I need to figure out with our mandated return to work schedule how to care for him if I am back to work. I am grateful that I was able to spend everyday with him for the last 2.5 years and that would not have happened without COVID. Things may have been a whole lot different. At the end of it all, I have been blessed, we have been blessed. Just more changes to figure out a new plan A, likely a plan B and possibly even a plan C. It will be okay, I have faith and I will remain positive.

So time to head out for a walk. It may rain by the look of the sky. The windows are open to let in the fresh cool air. I had closed them all last night as it was getting so smoky in the house.

Head out and check out the park. Alvin will again sniff out each blade of grass and I will admire the trees, the flowers in the yards that back onto the park, the water that is flowing in the ponds and the sky and life.

Have a wonderful Monday. Today is Labour Day. We are grateful.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. if you have multiple emails and did have old emails – you should read them. I have found some treasures that make me realize how much my life has changed and not changed over the years.

Last Half 2022 – August

Good Morning ALL (it is just barely morning). What a great last almost 24 hours we have had. There is something about having your brother, his husband and your daughter and your pup in the house at the same time. We laughed and cried as we shared news and talked about “the old days.” Some of us remembered things a bit differently but it was all good. Just after the boys arrived, my brother and I left the house to go to the grocery store. Likely not a great idea for Mr. Alvin as he was left with my brother-in-law who is a lovely human being but Alvin really didn’t know him. Todd said that he tried to get him to go outside with him but did not work instead he sat on one of his beds and looked out the living room window waiting my return. Clearly no separation anxieties here, lol. I get it – for most of the time he sees only me and he had not met Todd before and to be honest, I never really thought about it. Note to self. Do not leave the house right away after bringing someone new inside. It is funny not funny ha-ha that Todd has never been to my house here in Edmonton and I moved here in 2009. My brother has been here several times over the years. My poor Todd is awaiting double hip replacement so it was not easy going up and down stairs but he does not let that get in his way. He is a real trooper. Good mindset about his whole ordeal. He will be 54 in a few days. Hopefully after waiting for over two years, the surgery will happen soon. It breaks my heart when you know someone who has been waiting to have surgery and in constant pain. So it seems to be the standard thought process to give you drugs that you may or may not become addicted to help with the pain instead of doing the surgery right away. Drugs that over time damage and destroy your muscle/joints and whatever else. So why not do the surgery sooner than later. I wonder what the real reason is? We also realized that my brother and Alvin are on the same pain medication – just a different dosage. We had a real giggle over that.

I was so happy that my daughter decided to stay and visit. We had a cold supper if you will which was great. After supper and the sun went lower in the sky we sat outside on the back deck. It was wonderful listening to the laughter coming from my house. It has been awhile since I have had that many people enjoying the deck and each other’s company. I am so grateful that they took the time and came out of their way to come from Calgary to Edmonton before heading to Regina with final destination Winnipeg – then the lake. I remember to a few days ago when we were out at my daughter’s. I love the laid back lifestyle. So much fun.

Well it is almost time to head downstairs and get the laundry going and set up the fans and close all the blinds before it gets too hot in the house.

I am grateful to the Universe for bringing some of my family together for a great evening. I drank a bit and even had a few puffs of a cigarette (my brother-in-law smokes). I was a bad girl but sometimes you just have to be “bad.” We had good food, laughed, cried, shared stories, took pictures and just enjoyed being together. Does not get better than that.

We made a pact that next summer for us to get together again but we will make sure that our sister and other brother will be there, too.

Well I should go. Get things back to normal and do laundry. Always laundry.

Have a wonderful Saturday. Oh, I have to check my lottery ticket from last night -that would be a perfect end to a wonderful time. Especially if it were enough to share with family and friends.

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

I do love to entertain. This morning I made buns with two kinds of toppings, some cut up raw veggies and a container of unbaked chocolate macaroons. That was my gift to the boys – the macaroons. A request made by them. We celebrated my birthday and Todd’s which is coming up last night. Now they will have a good snack to have on their trip.

Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. we had some rain earlier this morning.

Last Half 2022 – August

Good Morning All! I hope that this finds you well. The trees are swaying in the breeze, the sky is overcast and it is quiet except for the slow drone of the fan in our bedroom and the loud barking of a dog in the neighbourhood. I am not sure why people leave dogs barking for hours! The dog is definitely outside in the elements. I wonder if it is calling for attention or for help. It does not sound like it is in distress and Alvin does not seem to be bothering by his barking. I sure hope that it is okay. We did not go for a walk this morning even though it is quite cool outside. We were up at 2:45 a.m. this morning. After the bathroom break – Mr. Alvin was sniffing about the backyard. Like he was on sort of important mission. Whenever I tried to break him out of the trance he appeared to be in – he growled. As I was holding the phone flashlight and a poop bag just in case, I figured just to let him be. Some twenty minutes later back into the house, wiping wet paws as it had raining during the night and then laying down on the sofa. We were up at 6:00 for someone’s breakfast and outside. Back in the house we came upstairs and laid on the bed until 6:50. Actually I did not keep hitting the snooze button as I was upstairs, which was a good thing. Into the shower and then ready for first day back at work for the week. I am grateful for the cooler temperatures this week. Hopefully for all those places in British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada – get some much needed rain and cooler temperatures.

I had a lovely chat with my sister yesterday afternoon. One sibling left to call. Always great reaching out to them. Catching up.

Today is the day that we have to collect a “urine sample” from Mr. Alvin. Not really looking forward to doing that but could be worse. My daughter is coming over to help with retrieving the sample and then she will drive it to the vet as there is a one hour time limit between time you take it and time it gets to the vet. Hopefully the results are good. Fingers crossed. Not sure about the abdominal ultrasound but likely that will be round the corner.

My one concern is the long drive to my daughter’s next week. I want to go so badly. It has been a long time since I have been anywhere and quite honestly I need a break. Fingers crossed. Doing a lot of that lately. Positive thinking and thoughts. Alvin is not a great traveller at the best of times. I guess time will tell. Likely a good idea to ask the vet about the travelling.

Well almost time to head downstairs for work. I am grateful that the house has cooled off. May not have to take the third fan downstairs or at least not now.

Have a great Tuesday.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: 7 days or one week till I turn 65. I am hoping that 65 brings continued good health for me and better health for Mr. Alvin. My wish anyway.

Last Half 2022 – July

Good Morning All! How are you this morning? We are doing very well. Last night after supper I walked with one of my girl friends to the Dollar Store to pick up cards and poop bags. Guess how long the walk was? It was 6.1 kilometers and to add to that Alvin and I had a 30 minute walk at my lunch break. So I got a great amount of walking in yesterday. After we returned from our WALK, we girls sat on the deck and enjoyed an alcoholic fruity beverage. We chatted and laughed. I figured that during our walk we got even more exercise in as we chatted the whole time. That has to help the old lungs and heart! It was warm but not too hot and there was a cool breeze from time to time. Mr. Alvin was not really pleased that I had left him but he was sure happy to see me when we first got home.

After Gillian went home, I watered my flowers and plants as we did not get enough rain to really do much good. Just a sprinkle really.

This morning the sky is slightly overcast and it is nice outside. If I could have got up off the sofa we could have gone for an early morning stroll. Why oh why, do I struggle with that darn SNOOZE BUTTON! Likely because of getting up at like 4:30 ish everyday. Maybe I should start staying up. Not sure at this point what I would do and then I would be ready for bed at like 7. Yes, I do like my sleep. One of these days, I will get it figured out. Tomorrow, Thursday and Friday are supposed to be +30 degrees celsius so we will be walking in the morning for sure. I can do this.

I am so grateful to my daughter for cutting my hair and most especially the back as it was so much cooler during our walk last night.

At this very moment in time, I am feeling oh so grateful. I am grateful that I have amazing friends. I am grateful that I have Mr. Alvin for all that he is. I am grateful for summer breezes. I am grateful for pretty flowers. I am grateful for long and short walks. I am grateful that I am able to walk. I am grateful for sunshine and laughter. I am grateful for the best daughter and son-in-law in the Universe. I am grateful for good coffee in the morning. I am grateful for these hands and fingers who type these words. I am grateful for MK lip gloss, feels so nice and looks so pretty. I am grateful for my grandpups, cannot leave them out, they are the best. I am grateful for all that I have and all that I am. I am grateful for life.

I hope that you have a great Tuesday.

PS: only 14 days, two weeks till I turn 65. Still cannot believe it.

OH and I love FLOWERS, oh, I did say that! I really love them.

Last Half 2022

Good Morning ALL! I was just thinking as I typed the title of this post. “Last Half 2022” Does it have a negative or positive aspect? Food for thought. I am going with positive. The first half of the year is part of our winter months, spring and beginning of summer. The remainder of the year is summer, fall and winter. I think whether it is the first half or the second half, it is all good for different reasons. Perhaps “Second Half 2022” would have been more appropriate, lol.

I should also mention that the Pope has arrived in our city. Pope Francis. I believe. I am not Catholic but I think it is very “cool” all the same. He visits the small town/village of Lac Ste. Anne on Tuesday, which just happens to be my daughter’s home, there is a week long pilgrimage, and has been taking place for over one hundred years. I hope that the visit brings healing to all.

We had a pretty good sleep. Alvin is a work in progress, poor little guy. I don’t even remember if I told you this or not. About the tinfoil? I think that I mentioned it. Well after he brought up his breakfast he was good for the rest of the day. My neighbour who is a Reiki Master, said that she was feeling that it was just the walk and it was too warm for him and he was anxious. I am so happy that he was okay the rest of the day. He seemed like his old self. Fingers crossed. Good thoughts for Mr. Alvin.

I did not hear about the little pup that was lost Saturday night. Some of the family that were driving around Saturday night until after dark were out Sunday morning and then I did not see them after that. I am going with the thoughts that someone found him and he is happy, safe and sound with his parents.

The sky is overcast and I was hoping that we would have received a bit more rain. Looks like I will have to water the flowers and plants. The sun is peeking out from behind the clouds and there is a breeze. I was happy to have it a bit cooler this morning. Alvin was happily sitting on the deck with sniffing and looking about.

We had a quiet rest of our day yesterday. My neighbour did some laundry at our place so I helped.

So back to work, hard to believe it is Monday already.

Time to head downstairs and make some coffee and likely Mr. Alvin will need to go outside.

By the way, I love my new haircut courtesy of my darling daughter. When I woke up I loved the way that it went – before it was even washed. Looks good now. Feels better.

Have an awesome day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: 15 more sleeps till 65. I could not decide on what to have for supper last night and then my neighbours gave me some roast chicken. Lucky me. So I had chicken and veggies.

Last Half 2022

Good Morning ALL! Today is Sunday, July 17th. Wow, July over half way over. This morning the sky is overcast and there is a breeze so it is much cooler than it was yesterday, thank goodness. I love the sunshine but not so much those +30 degree celsius days. We were up at 6:00 this morning but I was pooped from the heat yesterday so we slept until 8:00. Now I am up, laundry is put away and I am dressed and we will go for a walk after I publish this post. We have company coming at 10:00 for coffee so we have lots of time. I spent most of yesterday after our early morning walk, cleaning and cleaning and doing laundry. I even cleaned out some kitchen drawers – the utensil ones. They needed to be cleaned and reorganized. So now they are done! I also revamped the kitchen counter – meaning I reorganized the items that usually sit out. It was so hot in the house – that I had to just do things slowly. Even with all of our fans running it was HOT. I had Mr. Alvin covered with wet cloths from time to time during the day. Last night the temperature dropped with the rain so with the window open and the fun running it was comfortable for us.

I just realized that I did not vacuum the stairs and the landing where lies the only carpet in the house except for the family room in the basement and the stairs going down. I much prefer the laminate or some kind of non-carpet flooring. Easier to clean and just easier period. Someday I will replace the flooring including the stairs and the family room in the basement. Yes, we can always spend time in the basement if it gets too hot. It was somewhat cooler down there. Last year when we had a hot stretch we spent time in the basement.

I even baked a banana-raspberry loaf yesterday morning for this company today. That likely did not help with the heat in the house. Oh well. All done. I made a great salad last night with the lettuce and green onions from Lucy’s garden and a homemade dressing. It was so yummy. There is enough left for tonight.

Well not much new in our world. I was happy to get some rearranging and cleaning done. Washed the floors as well, up and down. Not that my house ever really gets “dirty” as I keep things tidy as I go along but there are times that we just need to do a more deep clean. I always feel better.

Last night I gave the plants/flowers a drink of water and then a few hours later it rained. Before bed we were outside for Alvin to pee and it was a beautiful slow easy light rain and I could have stood out there forever except for the mosquitoes.

I hope that you have a great Sunday.

PS: only 23 sleeps till I am 65. Just a bit over three weeks, hard to believe.

Last Half 2022

Good Morning ALL! I hope this finds you well. We had another good sleep although for some reason I still keep clicking on the “snooze” button, perhaps it is more of a habit than anything, I do not know OR perhaps it because of the rain and no sunshine. I had a glimmer of hope last night when the rain stopped and the clouds began to part and I could see sunshine and blue sky but alas that did not last. Even this morning I was sure somewhere between 5:00 and 7:00 a.m. – I saw the sun. But looking out of the office window right now the sky is grey. Yuck. I would love some sunshine.

I think that I am going to share some cute puppy photos today. Perhaps that will bring some sunshine, smiles to our faces:

I just had to add some photos of Alvin’s friends Humphrey and Bogart, the cats next door.

Hope these will bring a smile to your face. Maybe even clear the rain clouds. My poor flowers are praying for sunshine.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Last Half 2022

Good Morning All! How are you this morning? Is it raining where you are? It has been raining here since last night. I think there were breaks in the rainfall but the sky is grey and it appears that it may have set in for the next several hours. Hopefully the Sun breaks through. We have had enough rain for this time around. I did remember to move my one Lavender plant in the shelter of the house but I noticed earlier this morning that she appeared to be wet but not saturated. Thinking sunshine, sunshine, sunshine. I can feel the warm rays of the sun falling down upon my face (oh, I think that was the line in an old song), lol. Anyway, we have a problem. Roger dodger, Mr. Alvin does not want to go outside in the rain. Even with my umbrella up and following him about, he ran out and peed and ran back to the house. I hope there is a break in the rain soon, as I am quite certain he will need to poop shortly. Here we go again, talking about poop. Could be worse, lol. Anyway, when we go back downstairs, we will try again. Looking out the office window it is hard to tell if it is raining at this moment or not.

We were lucky to get in two walks yesterday. At noon we walked to Pauline’s house, that seems to be the furthest he will go these days but if I counted our return from Pauline’s to our house, I think it would be close. Just in a different direction. It certainly takes us as long but Alvin is walking just a bit slower most days. Then again, there are times when he surprises me and seems like a puppy again. We both love being in Pauline’s garden. On the way home, we met this couple with two small dogs. So we gingerly approach, the man said the one can be a bit off, she was a puppy and the other dog was 15 years old. The younger one came up to Alvin, growled and nipped at him. He backed away. She did not bite him. Just looked like she was going to nip him. The other dog just hung out. I am always amazed at the different reactions and actions of dogs we have never met. Alvin was good. I still could not believe that dog was 15. WOW. We enjoyed meeting them nonetheless. As we approached the entrance to our park, we both stopped to smell the roses. I hadn’t really realized before that whenever there are roses blooming he noses around them – getting a sniff of that heavenly fragrance. We are both rose lovers.

Last night Cookie’s Dad texted me and asked if we would like to come one night this week for a visit. So we are going over Thursday after supper. YAY, I am excited to see them again and catch up.

There is not much else new. We are living our lives. I am so grateful to be working from home. There are two days coming up that I will be going to the office and I have made arrangements for friends to come and check in on Mr. Alvin. I am so grateful for them.

Time to head downstairs and see if I can get Mr. Alvin outside before work (hopefully the rain will let up). Sun is shining, repeat after me, sun is shining. Clear blue skies…….

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

PS: only 35 days until my 65th BIRTHDAY. YAY.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Happy CANADA Day to all Canadians. We are not a perfect country but I know that I am for one, always trying to be a better person, a better human being, a better Canadian. Happy Birthday Canada. We will get there and I believe sooner than later. As long as we have today we can always help to make/build our tomorrows better than our yesterdays. If we continue to learn, that is what matters most. We, being Alvin and I are going to spend the day doing “stuff.” We will be going to our friend Pauline’s house to check on the flowers and plants and perhaps do some watering. Again, there is rain in the forecast but how can we know if it will actually happen OR if there will be a significant amount to give moisture to the foliage. After all, that is one of my happiest places so I will go everyday and give the plants a drink, if need be. We love to hang out in the garden and just be. I promise to take some photos today.

I must say that my plants are beginning to grow now that we have had some sunshine the past few days. There is some concern about one of my lavender plants but I believe it may be turning the corner now. The sun is shining again this morning. Alvin bless his heart, slept from lights out at 10:30 until 5:00 this morning. I was so happy. After he had his glucosamine chew, his breakfast and went outside to do his business, we laid down on the sofa until 7:00 a.m. and we have been up ever since. I changed the bedding on our bed, changed out towels and spent some time looking over Instagram pictures. You see last night we were vegging at home. I had received an invitation to go and join my friends to sit around the fire pit but I graciously declined as yesterday my eyes were “burning” off and on throughout the day, making it difficult to see the computer at times. It happened in the house and not even outside. I chalked it up to allergies but to what? Nothing new in the house. Anyway okay now. I was watching a bit of television and snuggling with Mr. Alvin when I decided to look on Instagram and at that very moment a photo of my long-time friend Diana’s granddaughter popped up, she was all dressed up for her graduation and will be going into High School in the fall. The photo was posted on Diana’s daughter page. I must have been following her and not realized it. So one thing led to another and next thing I know I was texting with both of them. I cannot tell you how happy I was to reconnect with my friends. It has been forever since we chatted and I know it was not in person or even by video but it was close enough. I spent a good amount of time looking at my friend’s Insta page this morning. Sometimes technology is a wonderful thing. Most times. What a great way to start the second half of 2022 reconnecting with friends. Catching up is always good.

Well today will be watering flowers and hanging out for a bit in our friend’s most beautiful garden and taking photos. Mr. Alvin requires a haircut and bath. There be laundry to do matey! Also some cleaning as always. But we will relax in between.

Time to go and get out of my pj’s, get washed and dressed, make some coffee, enjoy said coffee (maybe even outside on the deck for a change, I just realized that I have not done that yet this summer), have breakfast and then go for walk. I want to go before it gets warmer as Mr. Alvin does not do well in temperatures over about 22 degrees. Yesterday was too warm for him. I hadn’t realized how much humidity there was when we went for our walk at noon.

Happy Canada Day to All Canadians.

Have a wonderful day.

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

PS: we are now at 39 days until my 65th Birthday.
