The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Well, I hope. Alvin and I are doing great. We had some dear friends pop by for a lovely visit. Alvin’s best friend Teddy and his little sister Kobi and their Momma. It is always wonderful to catch up with them now that they spend most of their time at the farm. Both the pups were scheduled to be groomed yesterday but the groomer had to reschedule. They were very fluffy puppies. Kobi reminded me of a Wookie from Star Wars. Still cuter than cute. We had tea and visited and then it was time for them to leave. They will be in the City for about a week this time so we are going to schedule a sleepover for the pups. Always good for Mr. Alvin to have his BF sleep over. This morning I have a coffee date with my two younger friends and perhaps in the afternoon if weather permits Mr. Alvin and I may stray over to Teddy’s house. Teddy’s Mom said they had no plans and would love if we dropped by.

The sunrise is more subtle this morning and there remain clouds in the sky. Hopefully it is nice out and the sidewalks remain in good shape for us to walk, meaning the snow doesn’t melt so the ice stays covered.

I sure have been dreaming lots as of late. I guess I usually dream a lot. Wonder if that means anything in particular? Usually I do not remember many details but most times I wake up wondering? Perhaps one of these days I will keep a journal of what I remember when I wake up and see what happens from there.

Looks like Friday and Saturday of this weekend will be socializing and then tomorrow will be tax time. I just want to get them done and hopefully a refund. That is a good thing for sure. Last night I washed clothes so just have to wash towels and bedding but then again, I have enough of both – I could wash them next weekend. I also noticed that my laundry supplies are getting low.

Well, it is time to head off to the shower. Want to make sure that I am refreshed for the day.

Looking forward to coffee and visit with the girls and later with Teddy and family.

Maybe this is the day that you take some time to visit with friends or nearby family. Always good to connect and socialize. Especially in these times of such reduced time with other humans – when possible go out and see someone. Be safe as always.

I hope that you have a wonderful Saturday.

I cannot wait for SPRING. Some of my plants are flowering and that brings a special kind of beauty to our surroundings. Love it. I can close my eyes and dream of many flowers on the deck and in my flower beds front and back.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of March, 2019.

Another GORGEOUS day on the way.

Alvin and I are loving this weather.

Each night we are taking in a nice long walk.

We are feeling much better and are no longer “too fat” to fly as I like to say.

Not only do the walks help with the extra winter weight.

Which I think has actually accumulated over the past couple (saying very loosely) of winters.

But walking helps our mind, body and spirit connection.

My mind is always more clear.

Walking is food for my soul.

Walking brings great joy to my body and spirit, my soul.

I always feel as though I could conquer the world, when I walk on a regular basis.

We have that connection to NATURE ….. birds, water, trees, SNOW…..

Yup, even snow.

As we age, and there is no way around it (definitely not the alternative) – walking is so important.

Always it is a source of socializing.

We always meet someone walking around the lake and during our walk.

We need to socialize more.

It is definitely something that is being lost with the advent of the new “smart phones” and “social media.”

They all play a role of course but socializing and meeting people is a HUMAN thing.

Right.

If we were not meant to socialize to some degree …. there would not be any humans on this earth.

By socializing I do not meant “party hearty” ….. but communicate ….. share knowledge via speaking ….. share feelings and thoughts ….. and DREAMS.

I love our walks and will continue to walk until I can no longer walk and that will be the day that I leave this earth.

 

Last night we invited Humphrey to spend the evening with us as his Momma is not feeling well.

He has the best poses ever.

Humphrey just chilling at our house.

What a cutie.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.

Remember walking is so good for your body, mind and spirit.

Special Hello to: all our friends two legged and more.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 29th day of May, 2017.

Wow, what a glorious weekend.

There was time to socialize with family, friends and co-workers.

There was time to do some yard work.

There was time to relax.

Best Weekend Award.

Received email from my sister with details of trip to see me.

She is coming in August.

YAY.

I am feeling very lucky, grateful and blessed at this moment.

Alvin is laying on his belly just outside the office door looking at me as he always does.

Oh, me Alvin.

We had walks with friends this weekend and extra visits as well.

Both of us had a great weekend.

Although when he was alone during my visit to the ZOO – he may not agree with me.

So on this sunny Monday morning …… feel the gratitude.

Write it down.

Some days you may feel as though you do not have much to be grateful for but trust me everyone does …… there is a silver lining in each moment of our lives.

Sometimes you may just have to look for it.

Well time to put on the final touches (shoes) and go catch the bus to work.

I have packed some disposable non-latex gloves and a plastic bag so that I can pick up the trash on the walk way on my way home tonight.

There was quite a few coffee cups and McDonalds dishes laying about and I did not have a chance to go over the weekend.

Prepared I will be today.

Happy Monday.

Happy Monday.

 

Special Hello to: my sister ….. cannot wait for you to arrive.  I have not told Alvin or he would be waiting at the window for you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
