Last Half 2022 – November

Good Morning ALL! I hope that your Sunday is going well thus far. I am freshly showered and feeling GREAT and Mr. Alvin is resting on the rug outside the office, so I am going to go out on a limb and say that he is doing great as well. Sky is overcast and it is windy.

I would like to wish my nephew in Heaven a belated Happy Birthday and to a friend here on Earth, Kris, a very Happy Birthday.

Today is I am going to do some shopping. I am hoping to pick up any last minute gifts and most of the groceries that I will need for the next while including for the Christmas parties, baking and Christmas. There will be another trip to the store later for those items that were forgotten and fresh produce. I will also mail my Christmas cards inside and outside of Canada. Yesterday I wrote cards and letters most of the day in between doing laundry, going for a walk with Alvin and some cleaning. A very productive day.

They started out in order but somehow the tree photo with only the lights ended up last, lol. Anyway more Christmas decorations photos, my favourite time of year. The bannister turned out great.

Time to head downstairs and make some coffee, then have coffee and then go shopping.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Last Half 2022 – November

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? The sky is a beautiful mix of orange, pink, blue and grey white. Absolutely gorgeous. We had a pretty good sleep but as usual up a few times but that is our lives so that is it. This morning I am going to Costco with one of my girlfriends and then to the Dollar Tree to pick up some bags to put cookies in for Christmas. Only a couple more weekends until Cookie baking time. The days just seem to be flying by but I guess that is nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year. I/we were invited to Pauline and Al’s for supper this evening. I am debating on whether to leave Mr. Alvin home or not. Leaving him alone always gives me feelings of guilt and worry and anxiety. He will be home for a couple of hours this morning and then a few hours tonight. I know he will be okay. The neighbour that looks after him on most of the days that I go back to the office for work is beginning to get more hours at her new job. So there may be days that I have to ask someone ask to come over and check on him. I have to keep in my mind that there will always be someone available to come over but as the days and weeks pass this may be increasingly more difficult. I do not want to go there. Okay, enough. I will always be able to have someone come and check on Mr. Alvin. There will always be a neighbour that can come over.

Yesterday I gave Alvin a haircut and bath, he looks so good. Filled in the rest of the day with laundry, a walk and some tidying up. I will need to clean bathrooms after the shopping trip this morning and hopefully be able to get Mr. Alvin out for a walk. He will definitely need his sweater with his shorter haircut. Also yesterday my daughter put in an order with Costco online for some photo Christmas cards. I gave her some photos and she put them together for us. I am so excited. This will be the first time that I have used photo cards instead of cards with a photo tucked inside. I wanted to do something extra special this year. It will be difficult to decide which to send to who.

Time to head back downstairs and have a coffee or two before Gillian arrives. I am excited to get some shopping done. I added a few things to my small list but it is still not huge.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Last Half 2022 – November

Good Morning ALL! Can you believe that today is November 6, 2022 already. Yikes. It has been a snowy snowy November thus far. Colder, too. Our clocks were turned back last night at 2:00 a.m. which has already played havoc with our minds and bodies. I will admit that I am happy that the time goes back as it gives us one more hour in bed and when it is a reasonable time in the morning – we can see outside without the aid of a flashlight. It was snowing earlier when we got up. In fact, we went to bed at our usual time last night as the Momma was tired after a full day of decorating the house in all of our Christmas attire and the much later than usual Friday night. Mr. Alvin was awake and had to go outside at 1:30 a.m. The one thing about winter and senior dogs. You cannot just open the door and let them go out or at least I do not like to, so it means grabbing my winter coat, boots and mitts before heading out and if it is dark outside, I need my phone and with help from SIRI, the use of the phone flashlight. It is a whole deal but I gladly do it, as I do not wish my boy to slip and fall.

With all this snow and all of the shovelling so far, I am thinking it is going to be one of those winters where the snow banks are taller than me me. My computer brought up photos of a winter since I moved to Edmonton where the snow banks were taller than me. Who really wants that memory jog? But it is history and I thought it was important for whatever reason, lol, to take the photo, so I will not delete it.

Mr. Alvin is finally pooping on the deck in the snow. Easier for me to clean up and less likely someone will get injured jumping off the deck into the snow. I am going to shovel some of the excess snow off the deck onto the grass area so he will not jump off. There is quite a lot down there now.

My friends Gillian and Signe are coming for coffee and a visit this morning. I need to get outside and shovel the sidewalks. A couple neighbours have already been out. I have been shovelling every day. But it is good for the arms and good cardio.

I will post photos of Christmas decorations once I have taken a few more. I am almost done my shopping. As per usual, I am supporting small business and direct sales. That is the way to go. Helping where I am able. I do have to get some photos printed of our “family photo from summer” to pop into the Christmas cards. This year I am cutting back on the cards that I give to people that live near to me. There are a few that look forward to the card and photo so I will continue hand delivering those. I hope that stamps stay at the same price. Then baking. The big question. Everyone has been asking me. Are you doing your baking this year? What are you baking? That has not been yet decided. I will for sure do some but whether I give boxes of treats to 50 different families, not sure. I will do my best. I do know that everyone appreciates the treats.

Time to head downstairs. Get that walk shovelled. Put on the coffee and be ready for company.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Half Year 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? The sun is shining brightly and the sky is blue. Not much of a breeze this morning. We have company this morning. Amanda and Mi-Mi slept over. We had a great time. They arrived in the late afternoon, we left the pups together and went to Costco. After returning home from a busy Costco, we put groceries away and I boiled the potatoes for the potato salad for supper. I baked some chicken breasts and boiled the eggs for the salad earlier. My daughter was able to download/upload those garden photos that I have been wanted to share with you all for the past couple of weeks. I won’t have time to do that this morning as she will be leaving in a few minutes. Tomorrow will be photo day.

We have come to the realization that my computer is too old for some things. It seems to be only uploading a few photos at a time. At some point, I will need to get a new one. My computer will no longer take updates. So my phone and computer at not in sync. Or at least we believe this to be true.

Mi-Mi is staying with Alvin and I for the day. I will take the boys for a walk at my lunch break proving it is not too warm.

Coffee is ready and I will make a to go mug for my daughter to take to work.

Earlier this morning while juggling two bowls for the pup’s breakfast, I dropped one of Alvin’s large ceramic (glass) bowls and it broke into a million pieces. It served him well. I bought it shortly for him when I adopted him in January 2010. So it has lasted. I have another one similar but different pattern on the outside of the bowl. I am glad to still have one of them. He has other dishes but I did love those bowls. They are just the right size for him. I no longer have a spare while the other is being washed. Oh well, I guess I do have others but I loved these particular dishes.

Yesterday Alvin and I went for another full walk in the morning. It was so beautiful out.

My neighbour cut the lawn yesterday. He has been working on it and it is looking great. This is Sonja’s boyfriend. He is such a good guy. I think that all the rain that we have been having has definitely helped, too. But his patience and hard work is paying off.

Okay, time to go. I hear that someone is ready to go back downstairs.

Have a great day.

Last Half 2022

Good Morning ALL! Well I am so proud of Mr. Alvin. We were in bed by 10:00, I read for a bit before turning out the lights and next time up was 4:00 to take Mr. Alvin outside. We laid down on the sofa and he made it until 5:45 and I had the alarm set for 6:00. I was able to coax him to wait for another couple of minutes before I hopped up off the sofa. We have been up to stay up since then. I gave him his breakfast and we went outside. The breeze was cool but felt really refreshing. The sky was clearing but now I see rain clouds beginning to form. We have had such a weird and wonderful spring and summer. Next week hold onto your hats, they are forecasting +30 temperatures. WOW. The sun just gave a burst of light through the clouds, so pretty. I have such a great vantage point from my office window – just keying away and looking out the window for an update every so often.

Yesterday at noon we had a great walk and after work we made it just inside the park and the boss of me stopped and turned for home. He is truly the “boss of me.” When he says suppertime, I “run” to the pantry and then to the fridge. He has a mix of dry and wet food and pumpkin. I also realized something if I cut the pumpkin back to only in the mornings and not with his supper, that also seems to help his poop. Yup, just what you were waiting for, another “pooping story.” I am sorry but my life revolves around Alvin and part of what he does on a very regular basis is pooping. Now, let’s face it, his stories are more entertaining than my pooping stories! LOL. Life is breathing, drinking, eating and pooping and paying taxes. I hope that you are smiling now and not crying.

A couple of weeks ago, I met a woman at our garage sale. She was looking for antique/older rhinestone jewelry as she was making a bouquet. I did not have anything in the sale but I knew that I had some in my collection of odds and ends. So I took her contact info and called her a few days later. I found actually several pieces that she would be able to use. Well, last night she came after work to pick them up and we chatted and looked at the pieces of jewelry that I had out. We chatted for over 1.5 hours. I found out that she was actually making her bridal bouquet using rhinestone jewelry (some broken and other pieces too beautiful to take apart, using the whole piece) and would make the boutineers and add to table decor if she had enough. She is using coloured rhinestones for her bouquet and possibly the clear for the boutineers and tables. What a great idea. Her knowledge of jewelry designers / makers was incredible and I learned so much in a short time. I think it is safe to say that we will be keeping in touch.

My friend Gillian is borrowing some space in my fridge for food items as her work is having a barbeque and she was the person that did the shopping. It was hard not to open that big huge cake that she had picked up from Costco, looks so good. There is also salads and vegetables in the fridge. She will be picking it all up in a few minutes so it is almost time for me to sign off. I think that I have caught you up in my last day. It has been a good one. The week has had peaks and valleys but way more peaks. My cousin is home recovering from her major surgery and I am so beyond words joyful about that news. Work is going well, busy as usual but that is okay. No time for getting bored although perhaps sometimes that may be a nice change of pace.

I hope that you have an awesome Thursday. We are invited out after supper for a visit at Cookie’s house with her family. Cookie will be there, too. We haven’t seen too much of them lately so will be nice to catch up. I am grateful to have such great people within walking distance to visit. They are super close to us, just a few doors away.

PS: yes, it is only 33 days until my 65 birthday. I took a really hard look in the mirror this morning after I applied some makeup (which I do not always wear this much but sometimes) and I am pretty proud of the way in which I am aging. YAY, me.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! What a nice surprise to wake up to SUNSHINE. I thought we were supposed to have the opposite. I will take this in a heartbeat. Now I can go out and pick up trash in the “HOOD.” I slept in a bit later than I wanted but still pretty early so I am just doing a few things like having coffee and eating breakfast and then I am on my way to clean up our neighbourhood. At least as much as I can do today. I have decided to take one bag at a time. Too hard to carry multiple bags for blocks and blocks although it can be quite the workout. I am excited to clean up the crap that I have been seeing on our walks. Although I do pick up the odd thing when I am walking with Alvin. It is hard to walk with him and pick up trash. Besides kind of ruins the walks if I am doing both. Could you see me with Alvin on his leash in one hand, his water bottle, a garbage pack and trash picker in the other. OMG. Not happening. Besides if I get out earlier then we can hopefully get a walk in while the sun shines.

So this post will be short. We had two shorter walks yesterday with the second one being after 8:00 pm last night. It was really nice out. Quite enjoyable.

I did go out right after work and pick up groceries. Thanks for my neighbour for lending me her car. I am grateful that I get to drive once in awhile. Don’t want to lose my skills, lol. It was nice to escape my “lovely partner in crime and sometimes brat Mr. Alvin” for a little while. Good for him too. I was gone for less than one hour. He was fine. Don’t worry I love him and he is always well provided for …..

It seemed last night in the grocery store that the average price of anything was $7.99. YIKES. I am so grateful that I only have to provide for me and Alvin. Cannot imagine buying groceries for a large family. Even junk food costs a lot of money now.

Okay time to get going here. COFFEE is calling my name and I have to make it first.

Have an awesome day.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? We are good except! I will tell you in a moment. Beautiful sunrise with dark blue clouds filling the bulk of the sky. Rain clouds? Not sure. But looks pretty nonetheless. Most of the snow has gone leaving behind chunks of ice, gravel/sand, and muck.

Yesterday started out to be a great day and ended with a thump. In the morning we were up early and I finished off some laundry, had a shower and had a quiet morning, just enjoying it all. After lunch I walked over the nearby strip mall and went to Shoppers Drugmart first followed by Save-On Foods. I haven’t walked over to the mall in a long time. The walk was so enjoyable. I was struck by how many folks including myself wore masks and by how many did not. When I was finished purchasing my groceries, I called my friend Gillian to come and pick me up. I noticed that she had called twice. It was so loud in the store that I did not hear my phone which was in my purse. I had used a good old fashioned paper list. She was there in a few minutes and we loaded up her car. My friend had been calling me because she needed to get a few things. So back into the store I went. This time I totally forgot to wear my mask until I saw others with mask and the store was so busy that I decided to put it back on. I was so happy to spend a bit more time with my friend. After she dropped me off, I put the groceries away and Mr. Alvin and I went for a walk. It was so beautiful outside, I only wore a tank top with an elbow length sweater. Once back home, I putzed for a bit before giving Alvin his supper and warming up leftovers for me. I decided that I might as well eat early so I did. After supper and dishes, I went outside with Alvin to see if I could do something to make it less mucky in the grassy area of our backyard. Not a good idea. I did grab a cardboard box from the garage and broke it down. I laid it on the muck and was thinking that at least that way he could take the steps down and walk on the cardboard and then onto the remaining snow and ice. Well, not quite sure what happened but just after I put down the cardboard, I slipped and fell backwards onto the still frozen ground which was covered in a dirty mucky something. I twisted my body as I went down but did not hit my head (good thing). Not happy I muttered something not nice and slowly got up. I was completely soaked and filthy and MAD. Anyway I have to make this short as I slept in this morning. After I got up went into the house, took off my shoes and went upstairs to change. I found that my red tank top under my black sweater was filthy dirty on the back. The only part of my back that was not dirty was my head. Thank goodness. Anyway, I changed and put the laundry in the washer and carried on. I was a bit stiff and sore and that just got worse over the course of the night. I was in a lot of pain as I tried to sleep. Getting off the toilet is not easy. I have taken a couple of Robaxin to help with the muscle pain. My left toes are swollen a bit. No bruising that I have seen. Just incredibly stiff and sore although I believe that the worst is over, thank goodness. Not sure how it happened, I was not being careless. That was the thump to end my beautiful day. LOL.

Well time to go as I need to slowly make my way downstairs to grab my coffee. Yes, I am holding the railing up and down.

Wishing you a great day.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! I hope this finds you well and having a great morning thus far. We are up and ready for this day. The sky is overcast but it is warm outside which is a plus. Looks like more snow on the way. I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when we did have some wonderful bright sunshine filling blue skies. So pretty. My daughter came for a visit while she was in the neighbourhood at the Dentist so I took a late lunch break so that we had some time together. Alvin was so happy to see her and very pleased when she sat down on his bed and gave him some rubs. It was great to catch up although we both had so much to say but then forgot at times just what we were going to say. Excitement. It was great spending time with her and I am always grateful for all the time we have with her. She is one of the best people I know.

Teddy did not end up coming for a sleepover so that was disappointing but his Mom said that he was clingy and she just felt that he needed to stay home. But she would bring him over for a visit again before they return to the farm. So that will be nice. I totally understood.

Last night I called one of my friends. We had a lovely chat and caught up on all our news. We miss our walks as usually we walk together over the summer, fall and after the sidewalks clear in the spring. Her husband is celebrating his 69th Birthday today. We wish him a wonderful day.

Yesterday I was watching one of my recorded “talk” shows and they gave some great ideas for trying to lessen the impact of the food ever increasing prices.

  1. Buy staples such as: dried beans, lentils, pasta, rice and quinoa and canned goods. If there is a sale stock up. The shelf life is a long time and you do not have to worry about them going bad in two weeks.
  2. Purchase frozen green vegetables in the winter time when they are not in season. Frozen vegetables are picked at the height of goodness and are flash frozen for maximum freshness.
  3. Do not purchase berries in the winter time as they are not in season and are expensive and do not taste anything like summer berries. Instead purchase tropical fruit like bananas, oranges and pineapple. The oranges and pineapple may seem expensive but they go further than berries and last longer.
  4. Cabbage is another vegetable that is usually cost effective and can be added to many dishes. Filled with Vitamin C.
  5. If you are purchasing meat such as chicken, buy it whole. When it is cut up for convenience you pay so much more. A whole chicken depending on family size will do for at least two meals. You can always make soup out of the bones and little pieces and who doesn’t love chicken soup with vegetables, noodles or whatever you like.
  6. Also if you purchase fresh herbs, clean them, chop in small pieces and freeze in small bags or containers and then you will have for later. Most people use them for one recipe and then into the bottom of the fridge they go never to see the light of day again until they are passed their goodness.

Those are my tips for today. I think if we all work together. We can make things just a bit easier. Maybe it is a time to go back. Less time using electricity. Turn off the lights. Do not leave the television on all day (I am turning mine off).

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

2021

Good Morning ALL! Hard to believe we are now at FIVE sleeps until Christmas EVE. I am starting to get SUPER excited for Christmas. Later this afternoon our little neighbour Cookie is coming over to spend the next two weeks with us. We are preparing for her arrival. I got most of the laundry done yesterday. Spare room bedding all washed and changed, should someone other than my kids spend the night. I made a double batch of fudge as somehow we ran out of fudge and we cannot have that. I had to make a bit of change to it as I was short of chocolate chips so I added a bit of peanut butter. So will see how that goes over. I sure hope that no one has any allergies to peanut butter. It is the only item made with peanuts. I did my last shopping which included gifts for Mr. Alvin, Aspen, Milo and Cookie. That took two hours and I will say quite a lot of money, things should have increased over the past year or so. I am grateful that I did in fact have the money to pay for them although I was a bit disappointed that Shoppers did not honour the President’s Choice Gift Card that I received from my Employer. Oh well.

Last night I wrapped the gifts for the pups and one extra item that I picked up for my son-in-law’s stocking. Alvin was sniffing around the table where I was wrapping as he did smell in the shopping bag some little peanut butter treats that I picked up along with their main gifts. I added ribbon and secured the treats for the pups and put them into the fridge. Once the gifts were wrapped I debated about putting them under the tree as we know what happened last year. I had them on the kitchen counter and then thought that would be four more gifts under the tree which would look nice so I went to put them under the tree and guess who was in there like a dirty shirt? You got it, Mr. Alvin. So back to the counter they went. Last year I was in the kitchen working and I heard this rustling in the living room so I quickly went to check things out only to find someone had found his gift amongst all the presents under the tree and was starting to open it. OMG. I did not wish a replay of last year. So the gifts will remain on the counter in the kitchen.

This morning I will vacuum, dust and clean the bathrooms and the floors. Hoping to get out for a little walk with Mr. Alvin before our company arrives. It is to be minus 12 celsius this afternoon which is the warmest temperature according to the long range forecast for awhile. So we shall see. I have shovelling to do because it snowed more overnight. Thank you to our neighbour Steve for shovelling the front walk decreasing the amount that I have to do. There is snow in the forecast so I will have to stay on top of it. The sun is shining which energizes me. The coffee has perked so time for a coffee break. Lots to do before 4:00 p.m. and luckily there is pizza left from Friday for more leftovers tonight. Planned that right, yes, I did.

Happy Birthday to my great nephew LEVI who turns THREE today. I cannot believe you are three. We wish you a wonderful day and year to come.

Have an awesome day everyone!

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? We are well. For the second morning in a row we slept in. This morning we were woke up by the phone ringing. Which was a good thing. I think it is safe to say that this last week of incredibly hot temperatures has taken a toll on us and likely the rest of the country. It is only 17 degrees outside now and it is 8:16 a.m. – what a difference. Top temperature for today is to be 21 degrees celsius and rain. We did have a bit of rain earlier. We were up at 5:00 the first time.

The last couple of days have been very eventful and I cannot believe that tomorrow is back to work already. Thankfully the workplace remains at the kitchen table. Did I say that I love working from home. So much less stressful and no commute. Sure love that. I can be home right after I am finished work. Home for Mr. Alvin.

Saturday morning as I mentioned we were up and down and then not up until close to 9:00 a.m. I had a shower and was shocked, really shocked to find the water cold and did not warm up at all. In my heart, I knew that it was likely the hot water heater. My home is about 15 years old. After the shower and my brief post to you all, I headed down to the basement to find that there was water leaking from the bottom of the hot water tank. That is never good news. I googled to find out for sure and it was not one of the “fixable” things that were mentioned. Not surprised. I texted a few people for guidance. My daughter replied right away. She helped me find a plumber to call. I called the company and set up an appointment for 3:00 p.m. (by the way the technician/plumber was here at 2:30 p.m. which is always a good sign). He assessed the situation and I agreed to go ahead and replace the old one. We did the paperwork and then he started to process to drain the tank while he went back to the shop to pick up a helper and the new tank. About one hour later they were back – about 4:15 p.m. They started right to work. By I think it was 6:00 p.m. – the new tank was installed and the old tank was removed. I was grateful that they took the old tank, I had originally not thought of that. YAY, new tank. There is a smell to the water so I emailed the company and they called first thing this morning and are sending someone out. Luckily I have several jugs of water in the fridge for me and Alvin. I did do a load of dishes in the dishwasher and some by hand. So hopefully that is okay. So that is my hot water tank story.

I forgot to mention about Friday. Thankfully Friday was a bit cooler than the rest of the week. We had been up early and gone for a walk. I had booked the day off as vacation which was nice especially after having Wednesday off for Canada Day. We were just “chilling” trying to keep cool watching some television when I laid back on the pillow and before you know it I heard a voice and woke up to hear my daughter entering the house. She had planned to come over but I didn’t know the exact time. It was nice to have about a two hour nap on a Friday morning. Amanda and brought Milo (her smallest dog) with her. We visited and had coffee. Decided that we would take the box of items that I had collected from my basement reorganization to GOODWILL and then hit Save-On for a couple of items. So that is what we did. The fans were blowing for the pups and they had lots of water. We were gone less than two hours. I ended up finding five or maybe it was six tops, mainly sleeveless ones because that is what you buy when it is hot and one pair of jeans. Actually years ago I had these lightweight cotton not really denim pants that had an elastic waist and were so comfy to wear in the summer. I found a pair not quite as lightweight as the others from years gone by but close enough and they had an elastic waist. I was going to try them on but haven’t yet with all of the excitement. I did try the tops yesterday and they all fit. Anyway, it was great to get out for a bit. 24/7 – Alvin has been my constant companion. I really enjoyed my outing. We filled a bin at GOODWILL with the items from the basement and three big bags of clothing (previously cleaned my closets). Once back home – Amanda picked up Milo and they were on their way home. So nice to have company for both me and Alvin and an outing to boot. For some reason I think there was something else I wanted to tell you all but for the life of me I have forgotten. Also my neighbour is away for the weekend so I have been checking in on Humphrey, Bogart and Cynder.

At the end of it all, I have a new hot water tank and some new tops and a pair of jeans. What a weekend!

Well we should head out for a walk before they come to check our water.

Luckily I have water in the fridge for us to drink and for COFFEE. Walk first and then coffee.

I hope that you are keeping safe and cool. So grateful for cooler temperatures for today and next week. Looks like Friday/Saturday will be warm.

Also I set up an appointment for July 14th to have my central a/c serviced so for the next hot weather we will be ready.

Have an awesome Sunday. Looking like this is my cleaning day …… I have had lots of “relaxing time” so need to get some things done, lol.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin
