Living … One day at a time.

Hello, well we are looking forward to a daytime high of 20 degrees celsius.

YAY, that will be wonderful.

It felt good when we were outside about 5:00 a.m. this morning.

The boy is on the mend.

Slowly adding his regular hard food back into the chicken, rice and soft food.

It is quite the thing to figure out each and every day.

But I am so grateful that he is feeling better.

 

Yesterday morning Mr. Humphrey jumped up onto the corner post and top of his deck so that he could say hello to me.

He was having a whole conversation with me and Alvin.

I only wished that I could understand what he was saying.

Even after work he jumped up to say hello.

So last night, nothing says “feeling better” than hanging with one of your besties, right!

I could take photos of the boys all day long.

 

 

Humphrey on one side last photo on above row and Alvin on the blue blanket beside me.

Humphrey was not licking his paw he was actually sleeping.

Such cuteness …..

I am so happy that life is almost back to “normal” and sometimes we do not realize just how wonderful that “crazy normal” is until it is not.

So grateful to all our friends and family for their love and support and GREAT IDEAS.

I would not have made it through this past almost two weeks without you ALL, thank you.

 

Well time to take the boy outside one last time before I leave for work.

Yesterday my ride arrived while we were outside.

Then panic … running through the house …. changing shoes …. grabbing ID…… grabbing keys ….

 

Happy Thursday.

With kindness and respect we shall mend the madness.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th and second last day of July, 2014.

Wow, what a month July has been.

Some rain storms, hot weather, kids moved in, cleaning their house, and I hit 500 followers on my blog.

What a month.

What a great month!

Well tonight we should finish up at the house and the new owners move in on Friday.

My kids lived in their house for seven years.

Moved in July 2007 and moved out July 2014.

Lucky 7’s.

After tonight we will start to get into a regular routine.

The puppies will be happy about that …..

The sky seemed to be overcast earlier and I am quite certain that we saw some lightning flash in the sky during the night.

Alvin woke up and was up at the window barking at something in my neighbour’s yard.

Not sure if a cat got in there or not ….

Well almost time to go to work.

Another day another $1.00 …. isn’t that how the saying goes.

But thank goodness it is more than that…

I seem to use the word t-h-a-t several times in this blog ….. or maybe I use it a lot.

Celebrate being alive on this Wednesday.

Be grateful for all that you have and all that you are …..

May grace and kindness guide you.

I love that Alvin lays outside our room as I type this in his “guard” protector mode.

Or at least it looks that way.

Special Hello to: you all ……. everyone on the planet.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 26th day of June, 2014.

A bright and sunny breezy morning here in Edmonton.

Alvin is wondering what is going on as I have been at home for the past few days and now out of the blue I am back to the regular routine.

He will have a surprise a bit later as his sister told me she was going to come and pick him up.

She is on vacation this week.

Well, I am so happy to be feeling much better …… my mouth is healing properly.

I am going for a checkup with the dentist tomorrow ( I have a bunch of old fillings that likely will need to be replaced ).

I wished that dental work was less expensive …… even with benefits we still have to pay.

But I am very grateful to have benefits and a dentist nearby.

So on this Thursday I am just grateful to be feeling great ….

Alvin and I went for a walk yesterday with my daughter and her puppies so nice to get out and get some fresh air.

The roses line the walks with blooms so heavy they nearly reach the ground.

The fragrances so magnificent there are no words.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Well time to get downstairs as my ride will be here soon (catching one with a neighbour).

I hope that you all have an awesome Thursday.

Enjoy Mother Nature whenever and wherever possible.

Thank you.

Special Hello to: Nature lovers ……

Always, Carol and Alvin
