2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Thursday morning? The sky is partially overcast and the trees line my horizon in all glorious colours of the fall palette. I have to announce in my most loudest happiest voices ever. We went to bed last night at 10:00 p.m. and the next time Mr. Alvin woke up was 5:00 a.m. (I woke up to go to the bathroom at 3:00 a.m. but that does not count). The boy slept through seven hours. We got up at 5:00, he had breakfast and we went out to the backyard to do you know what. The boy did you know what!! Then back to the sofa and the next thing I know it is after 8:30 a.m.. I guess all of this fresh air we have been getting lately is catching up with us! I am so happy that he finally had a good sleep and me, as well. The technicians from Modern PURAIR came out yesterday to clean the furnace and vents. They were awesome. Of course, they fell in love with Alvin. I have photos to share but will have to post them later. We are running late and I need to take Alvin for a walk before I leave the house at 10:00 a.m. My friend Gillian invited me over for a morning coffee. Yes, not working today. I feel relieved to have the vents and furnace cleaned. The filter in their “giant vacuum” was not as dirty as I thought it would have been after not having the process done in over five years. The price was under my budget amount which made me even happier. Now I can go to the Vet and pick up both Alvin’s wet and dry food before payday which is great and some money leftover. There appears to be a bit of a breeze so I will check the temperature before we go – just in case Alvin needs to wear his sweater.

On this day and every day, I wish a wonderful, respectful, kind and loving time for everyone and every creature. If we could only learn to treat all life with the deep respect, kindness and compassion that “they” deserve then our todays and tomorrows would be glorious. There is work to be done of course. We all live on planet Earth together and together it is our responsibility to make it the best place to live and to be that we can. This is all we have. I look to today as I learned from yesterday to make tomorrow the best it can be for myself and for all others.

Lovingly and with hope for better tomorrows, I remain …

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

My Life …..

I was just looking at the photos that are on my home page.  The ones that my daughter chose.   I suppose that I was about  “4-5”  in the photo from my childhood, and I know exactly how old I am in the other photo.  The second photo was taken last fall by my daughter so I was “53”.  So that would make close to fifty years that have happened in between photos.  A lifetime by all accounts.  I was just thinking that it would be an interesting exercise to go through those almost fifty years, one at a time.  How much do I remember?  How much do I want to remember?  How much do I want to share?  Can I actually put a date on things that happened thirty or forty years ago.  I am going to try.  Also wherever possible I will post photos, now that should be a hoot.  Hairstyles and pant lengths, oh my…

Over the past few years, I have been on a quest for self improvement, and  of self examination, so I figure this would be good therapy.  GOL (giggling out loud).  Why not?

Well, Mr. Alvin is commanding me to get his supper for him.  Sure would be nice if he could get his own.  But that might prove to be …… well not so much.  So I am going to publish these thoughts and see what you think.  Is this something you would be interesting in reading?

While  you ponder that question, I am going to give supper to the boss of this household, my dog, Alvin.  Truly he wears the “pants” in this house.

Until later……

Thought for this day ……

Remembering happy times from long long ago …… is a good thing.

I am writing stories from my youth and throughout my life.

It is a good thing.

Take time to remember …… it makes you appreciate and live each moment to the fullest.

Live NOW….. but remember always…..

Always, Carol
