Good Morning All! I am late writing as this is my late start to work day. Usually twice a month we work from 11:00 am till 7:00 pm with 4:00-7:00 pm on the after hours phone line for our clients.
They are delivering our garbage cans for new program. Yay, garbage bins with wheels and recycling bin as well.supposed to be compost bin as well. How exciting. There are a few things to work out as property slopes and is not flat to the back lane. I’m sure that we will figure it out. I don’t fill my regular garbage cans weekly so only put out once every two or three weeks.

We had a good sleep snd then up to stay at 7:00, Alvin has a great internal alarm clock. Speaking of the boy, he wanted down from the sofa so he could check out where the noise was coming from out front. I will go and move my new bins shortly.

We had a walk right after I got dressed snd so nice outside. Then we watered the front and back flower beds and the pots of flowers on the deck. Alvin was a good boy but I put him back in the house when I went to finish watering and deadheading the pots on the top deck. The old fart is fast and I cannot chance him going up the steps. He now goes and climbs up the first step from the backyard to deck and I lift him up. He has started to play with his toys more and more. He definitely is feeling better.

I have decided to clean out some flower pots on the weekend snd also bring my geraniums into the house. There was a heavy dew last night so thinking frost is not far behind.

The plants were hit hard by the extreme heat a few weeks ago and no amount of water made a difference. Maybe I will be able to get some hardy plants next year as I think these hotter temperatures are going to stick around from year to year.

More photos as I love to share when using my phone as is so easy.

Well time to go and out away the bins. Finish my coffee and put away my bins and read the instructions.

Have a great day.

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

Always Carol&Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to a Windy Sunny Saturday the 21st day of June, 2014 and the FIRST DAY OF SUMMER.

Today will be the longest day of the year.

I am going to make sure that Alvin and I take a long late walk tonight.

Today I have two major tasks to complete.

One is laundry (it is an easy one).

The other is going through the office and deciding what to keep and what to store in the basement.

It is so easy to collect things without even noticing.

Usually once a year I go through all of the “paper” and am brutal about what stays and what goes.

I grab the recycling bin (that I have on my basement landing) and bring it upstairs, also a cup of coffee, crank up the music on my computer, and away I go.

The time goes fast but usually at the end I have done what I set out to do.

This time is a bit different.

My kids are moving in with me near the end of July while they have their new house built.

Their house sold about a week ago.

So I want to make sure that I only keep what I need.

Man, this is great because it forces me to be conscious of what I really, really need.

Sometimes the bigger plan can be the bigger plan.

Anyway, time to go and put on the first load of laundry, grab the recycling bin and a cup of COFFEE.

I look forward to going through things…… sometimes you find little things that you forgot about ….. mmmmm

So have an awesome first day of summer …… make sure that you take your body outdoors and enjoy this day.

Happy First Day of Summer….

Special Hello: to my dear Sister …. sorry that it is has been crazy busy here …. we will SKYPE soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin
