Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning Everyone,

Back to work after a great weekend but a sleepless Sunday night.

Alvin is settling in at my daughter’s house.

I do miss him but I know he is being well looked after and is a nice break for both of us.

Sometimes you just need to change things up a bit.

 

I am also very angry this morning.

Just a few minutes ago I received a text from my neighbour asking if I had taken a box into my house for her.

Usually if we are out walking and I see a box on her step, I put it into her house.

Within a nanosecond of her text, I realized that the big black truck that had stopped out front of our houses was stealing from her.

It was in the afternoon and I do not even remember the exact time.

I was on the main floor and saw this black truck slowing down and kind of looking which I thought was looking for a house number.

They stopped and a man got out and walked out of the range of my sight and then shortly thereafter came back with a box and put it in the box of the truck.

They drove off.

I remember for a second thinking “Oh my neighbour must have received a package by mistake and owners came to pick up.”

Which has happened before but no, someone stole her “food box” right in front of my eyes.

I feel really bad as I innocently watched the crime take place.

Please folks keep your eyes out as people are desperate for many reasons.

Food boxes are not cheap and I cannot imagine that the company would replace it.

Be aware of strange vehicles in your neighbourhood.

If you are expecting a delivery and not going to be home, please ask a neighbour that you know and trust to keep an eye out for it.

I wished that I had known.

 

Well it is time to have that cup of coffee and start work.

I hope that you are well and safe.

Be aware.

 

Have an awesome Monday.

Living with kindness and respect.

 

As Always, Carol & Alvin

P.S. I did manage to get some photos deleted from both my phone and computer.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 21s day of September, 2015.

Rained all night but has stopped now.

I think we have had more rain in September than all summer or at least it seems that way.

How are you feeling this fine Monday morning?

I always have to boost myself up after Sunday nights.

Usually I cannot settle down and go to sleep …. too many thoughts.

Are you this way?

It is just like the night before going on a big trip?

You go through your suitcase ….. do a checklist.

You make sure in your mind that you have your passport, traveller’s cheques, cash.

Because you keep imagining the airline clerk asking for your passport and you cannot find it.

I had that dream and wasn’t even going anywhere.

Who knows … what that means?

You make sure that you gave the spare key to your neighbour who is watching your house while you are gone.

You make sure that unnecessary electrical appliances are unplugged.

The whole gambit …. you go through.

For me most Sundays nights I go through that day, the next, the week and it certainly did not help that it was raining.

Oh well, I made sure that I had some energy boosters for breakfast ( oh, the natural ones of course ).

Green tea – MATCHA ….. very good.

Just in case you are going somewhere ….. always have a checklist.

Passport anyone!

Well it was an interesting Sunday …. my daughter was supposed to come but was not able to in the end.

Part of the plan was to make pancakes (which I did … pumpkin spiced ones) and give Mr. Alvin a hair cut & bath.

OMG, he is such a DIVA.

I will admit that I raised my voice …. likely close to yelling very briefly when I struggled to trim his paws.

Finally I managed to get them trimmed pretty good or at least way better than the time before …..

We did have a good Sunday …… all in all.

Well I guess I had better get this show on the road.

Almost time to go and catch that earlier bus ….

So happy it stopped raining and hopefully the sun will shine today.

Special Hello to: my friends back in Regina …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
