It is a NEW YEAR.

Happy Monday Morning Everyone.

No colourful sunrise as yet but am hopeful that we shall see some sunshine today.

More snow yesterday and overnight.

 

Yesterday I snapped a couple of closeups of Mr. Alvin.

Is he not the cutest boy?

He has such a cute innocent face.

His eyes …. I guess only one is visible…

When I am eating something and he comes up close with his face and turns on the cuteness …. those brown eyes can melt you into a puddle.

 

A Story of Six Bunnies

Over the past few days I have become enthralled with the bunnies that gather in the nighttime on our front lawn.

Okay, on the front snow covered lawn area.

Last night as I started to turn off the lights in the house before we went upstairs to bed, I noticed five rabbits out front of our house.

One came bounding over to join them.

We watched the bunnies as they munched away on the food that my neighbour so graciously has left for them.

It has been a hard winter for these little ones with all this snow.

At one point in the second photo, I saw two of the rabbits leaving the group to the other side of the street.

They stopped along the side where there was an abundance of soft fresh snow (not packed down by traffic).

One of the bunnies laid down and rolled around in the snow.

Well yes he/she certainly did roll.

Then jumped up while the other bunny watched.

I giggled as I watched the playfulness of the bunny.

The little one did this a few times before continuing to the other side of the road.

I figured perhaps I could grab some better photos so we raced upstairs and I took the photo on the left.

The one on the right captures the two bunnies, the one on the left was the one playing in the snow.

 

This morning from our bedroom window.

Appears to have been a party happening in our front yard (my neighbour and ours together).

The tracks filled the front yard or at least most of it.

There are tracks from every direction.

There was lots of good food and good company.

I should have put out some liquid refreshment.

 

Well that is what was happening in our neck of the woods as Al Roker would say.

I am an Al Roker fan (Today Show).

 

Well the time is passing and is almost time to start working.

 

In addition to watching the bunnies yesterday I made another banana cranberry orange with coffee spice load and a massive pot of the best chili ever.

I am so proud of both.

Good eatings ahead.

 

Time for caffeine …..

Have an awesome day.

 

It is the small things in life that mean the most.

A snuggle with Alvin.

Video chat with my daughter.

Text from my sister.

Fresh made banana loaf.

Smell of chili bubbling away on the stove.

A bunny rolling in the fresh snow.

Fresh perked cup of coffee.

 

Time to go.

 

As Always, I/We

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Overcast skies.

Due in part to rain in the forecast and likely some due to the smoke from the fires up north.

Alvin is resting on his double thick blanket on the floor beside me as I write these words.

When I was a little girl – I dreamed of phones that you could both see and speak to the person on the other end.

Remember I was born in 1957.

These thoughts were not brought on by a television program as we did not watch much television other than Walt Disney on Saturday or Sunday nights.

Too much to do on the farm.

As I got older and saw the way that technology was going – I knew that it would happen in my lifetime.

So today …. I am happy that I can sit in front on my computer and video chat with my sister.

See her in real time.

Hear her voice ….. hear her laughter.

Such an awesome way to connect.

Who would have thought that a person, me, could key the words onto a keyboard and they would appear upon a screen and click on PUBLISH and they would go out to the world.

Certainly not me.

What a life.

I am so glad to be living this life …. now ….. One day at a time.

Has not always been this way.

Seems to be an age thing.

Make the most of each day ….

 

Last night after work Alvin and I went out for our walk.

We were disappointed not to see the geese and those darling baby goslings.

They were likely swimming out of our sight.

We were just walking into the park and going round the bend when I heard “Alvin, Alvin.”

Turned around to see two small boys coming towards us.

One on a bike and the other running and ended up falling.

They were coming down a hill.

Not a big one but a hill all the same.

Neighbour boys were out with the sitter.

They got ahead of her and their smaller brother.

So cute.

They were so excited to see Alvin.

Bike was dropped close by.

Came over and gave him some love.

Alvin is definitely loved by all.

So sweet.

We chatted for awhile …. waiting for their sitter to come.

She must have been quite a distance behind them.

The older boy ran up the hill to the sidewalk to check but did not see them.

I gave them instructions to go straight home and to the younger one to stay on the sidewalk with his brother.

The elder of the two said that they walks him home ….

So off they went and off we went.

 

Well time to fly.

We slept in a bit this morning.

Glad to see brighter sunshine.

 

Have an awesome day.

Living in the moment or one day at a time does not mean that you can not look back from time to time.

Happy Tuesday.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 12th day of December, 2016.

Wow, could it be so.

Just 12 sleeps until Christmas Eve.

I think so.

Are you kiddies getting excited?

I am ….. but I must confess, don’t think Santa will come this way as I have not been as good a girl as I should have been!

That is okay because this gal has everything that she needs.

 

Me Alvin came home yesterday afternoon from his three night sleepover at his sister’s house.

Baby Milo stopped by for a short visit while his Daddy went to pick up some items at the store.

He sure has grown since he first joined our family – almost doubled his weight.

So cute.

He loves Alvin …… follows him everywhere.

Alvin is adjusting.

 

Last night I video chatted (Skype) with my sister and great-niece.

Thank goodness for technology.

I remember being a young girl and dreaming of the day when we could see people as we spoke to them “over the phone.”

Crazy hey.

I am talking about in the early 60’s ……

We had a wonderful chat …. I always love talking to my sister.

When she smiles she lights up the room.

Not much new with them but that is not a bad thing.

The girls were putting up their Christmas Tree just before we chatted.

 

Well looks like it is almost time once again to leave for work.

I cannot believe how quickly time goes on the weekend.

So am looking forward to our week off between Christmas and New Year’s.

Time to walk ….. extra snuggles with Mr. Alvin and some time with my girl.

 

Okay … time to leave here.

I hope that you have an awesome Monday.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. I love you, Sis…..

Always, Carol and Alvin
