2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you doing today? Tuesday again. My how the weeks fly by. Interesting how much can happen in the span of one week’s time. Alvin and I had a pretty good sleep last night. As we laid on the sofa as the sun was coming up the beautiful colours seemed to fill the sky or at least most of my window. Absolutely breathtaking. I love those moments. No place to go …. just cuddling with my best companion watching the sun come up. I don’t think Mr. Alvin has as much appreciation for the sunrises but then again I could not say for sure. Perhaps as I was enjoying the moment – he was as well.

Yesterday we had a lovely walk at lunchtime and then again after work. After arriving back home from the later walk, I gave Mr. Alvin his supper and made mine. Once suppers were out of the way, cleaned up the dishes and the kitchen and headed out to the garage. I put out the trash for this morning which consisted of the plants that I had dug up on Sunday. Grabbing my heavy duty gloves and back into the house through the back door, I was out the front door picking up my shovel from the front porch and at the flower bed. I quickly surveyed the situation. After a few shovels full of dirt and rearranging things, I decided it was time to put back the rock/stones. After placing a few I soon realized that I was not getting them placed correctly so I ran into the house to retrieve my phone and check out the photos. That did not really help me, much. I even walked over to the neighbors who have the same stone wall surrounding their front flower bed as they were built by the same person. After a bit of time rearranging and arranging these heavy stones, I decided it was time to go and ask for help. I ran over to ask Humphrey’s Mom if she had a few minutes to help assess things. I just needed her eyes to figure out how the rock needed to be placed as I was getting nowhere fast. She grabbed her shoes and came over. I am only a few steps away, lol. This just seemed like a puzzle that I could not solve as I had stone/rocks laying everywhere.

We went back and forth and I moved the stones for a few minutes before we stopped and brainstormed about how they needed to be before we finally together moved the stones and before you know it had them back in a perfect wall. YAY, girl power. I am so grateful to have the best neighbour and for her to drop what she was doing to help me out was awesome. After she went back into the house, I quickly shovelled the dirt back into the hole that I had dug. Smoothed it over and now already to plant some new flowers/plants. Time to do some plant researching.

Well it is time to head downstairs and put on the coffee. Almost time to start another work day. I am grateful to be working from home and to be with Alvin each and every day. I am grateful to be right where I am.

Continuing to live this day with kindness, respect, compassion and patience for all.

Always, love Carol & Alvin

CANADA – love our beautiful country.
