Last Half 2022

Good Morning ALL! Thinking that I would change the category name this morning. Definitely no longer a new YEAR. I hope this finds you well. We had some excited already this morning. We went to bed close to 10 and were up at 4:15, so not too bad. Although I can always sleep given the opportunity. By the time that we were up and downstairs and what not, and went outside, it was closer to 4:45 so I gave Mr. Alvin his breakfast. Then after all was done including giving him the second last Tramadol (pain pill) as he was licking his paws and shaking his head. Not good signs. He seems to be okay now. Will have to watch him. I noticed another little piece of fur that must have been wedged in the bottom of his paws had broken free, likely when he was madly licking them. This would have been from his hair cut. I spent a lot of time looking over his paws and pulling out any pieces that had been trapped but it is hard to see, so I may have missed some. Another job which is difficult on your own with a dog that does not like his paws or ears touched. Just more fun in my day to day. Anyway, we went back to the sofa and he did settle down however he decided he would lay across the chaise part of the sofa so I had to move the pillow and lie down on the other part, which is small and I have to bend my legs but I was happy to do it, if it meant he would sleep. Trust me. You would, too. I was dozing off and on when he woke up, I checked my phone for the time and it as 7:48, definitely time to get up and going. I grabbed my sweater as he wanted to go outside and I was in my pj’s. Put on some footwear and grabbed some pooping bags just in case. Poor Alvin has had some diarrhea over the past couple of days but this morning it was almost back to normal. I had given him a bit of banana on Friday, I think. So NO MORE HUMAN FOOD except the pumpkin. Last night for his supper I did not give him pumpkin, now that I think about it. His poop this morning was almost back to what it should be. Maybe I need to cut that out and see? Anyway, time to get this day going.

By the way, I did try several times earlier to download/upload those photos. Something is definitely wrong with the technology as several blank videos showed up on my computer. Three miscellaneous photos. I give up. Thankfully my daughter said she will come by at some point and take a look. Unfortunately not just anyone can look as I have APPLE products and you need to know how they work as they are quite different from others. Anyway, they are having company this weekend so perhaps one night after work this week. I also thought that this was a short week but that was last week, lol.

One way or another I will get those photos to you. You must see her garden. I wished that I was tech savvy.

Yesterday after our very late start, it was raining so we had a quiet morning. I did finish the laundry and later in the afternoon we went for a walk. We were just a few doors away from home, when I thought I heard someone call out my name and sure enough I turned about and saw our friend Joanna out on her porch. So we walked back and stopped for a porch visit. We chatted for several minutes and then were on our way. We made it just inside the park and then he wanted to go home, so we did.

Last night was quiet. The sun came out which was lovely. The sun is out now.

Just after we got up to stay up. We went outside. I thought that perhaps he had to go pee so I had grabbed my sweater to cover, yes my pj’s and headed outside. He walked around the deck for a bit while I went and sat on the edge of the deck that goes down to the grass. I listened and watched this huge crow cawing away and then land on the neighbour’s chimney. He was huge. He sat there for a few minutes making some noise in response to another crow in the distance. After I turned my head to see what Alvin was doing – I noticed that he was looking up. Turning my head in the direction that he was looking, I noticed this big black and white cat perched on the roof of our neighbours garage. Alvin and the cat had a quite intense staring match going on. I got up to see if Alvin would come down and looked back to the garage and the cat was gone. We were both up on the deck and then Alvin made a beeline for the fence on the other side of the deck. Then it was that I saw the cat looking down from the top of the fence. Alvin started to bark and jumped up onto the upper part of our deck and I could not stop him so I quickly followed. He kept barking and the cat was swishing its’ tail back and forth, looking very scary and I was thinking it may jump so I quickly went into the garage and grabbed a broom. I gently placed the broom between Alvin and the cat and moved Alvin away. Finally with the aid of the broom I was able to coral him down the steps and onto the other deck and then into the house. Then I turned and the cat was gone. Alvin likes cats so I was surprised when he barked. Anyway that was our excitement for the morning.

Okay story time over and time to head downstairs and get some coffee brewed. It was so lovely on the deck earlier basking temporarily in the sunshine that I think I may go out again with coffee this time.

Have a great Sunday.

You never know in this house – there be cats – there be good poop or bad – technology issues – sun or rain ……..

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: now 37 days until my 65th Birthday. Thank goodness my birthday is in early August or the summer would be gone, lol.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! Welcome to Sunday, June 19th, 2022 and FATHER’S DAY. Happy Father’s Day to all those Dads out there. You are considered a DAD if you look after another being. For example: if you have children you are a Dad. If your partner has children, you are considered a Dad. If you have puppies or kitties you are a Dad. Any living breathing creature in your custody or care, you are a Dad. Happy Father’s Day. We need as many good Fathers as good Mothers out there. Remember you rock and we need you. Don’t worry if you are not good at grilling, doing laundry or dusting – you can fix the family car, you can mow the lawn and you can go for walks with the pups or kids or just chill with the cat. You give good advice and you help with math questions.

We just ask that you do the best that you can. We appreciate all of the Dads/Fathers out there in the world. Alvin and I want to wish each and every one of you a great day.

Happy Father’s Dad to my son-in-law who is the best Puppy/Dog Dad out there. He looks after my grandpups “Miss Aspen” and “Milo” with love and care. We appreciate you.

There was sunshine earlier but now the sky has clouded over. There is also a breeze. Guess I should have gotten my fanny farkle up earlier but I just could not get “it up” off the sofa. Might have something to do with the sleep patterns of a little four-legged guy, oh, I don’t know someone named “ALVIN.” Oh well. Yesterday we left the house for a walk at noon and got home at 1:30. We saw our friend Pauline out in her backyard and she invited us in for a visit and I ended up going home with a flower to plant in my back garden. There was Jamie and Miss Sady out for a walk and we had a nice visit. Our neighbour and friend Husam was out working in their front flower garden and stopped to chat. It was a great outdoor experience. We even had a walk in between the visits. YAY, Us. I got the laundry done and set up for the garage sale, mowed the grass in the backyard and did some cleaning. All in all, a good day.

Today will be more quiet. After this, I am going to have a shower and if we are lucky enough to have sunshine or no rain, we will go for a walk. Then just some odds and ends of things to do for the day. You know there are always those things.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

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

Always, Carol & Alvin

PS: 51 days to my 65th Birthday. AND Summer is officially a couple of days away. Hope that means some sunshine……..

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? I, we are well. It is light outside and in fact the sun was shining brightly when I looked out of the living room window but now that I am upstairs in the office facing south, there is a blue veil covering most of the sky. The remainder of the night sky perhaps. The morning sky always amazes me with all the different aspects. Tomorrow is supposed to be +12 degrees celsius. Cannot wait. For some people that would be “flip flop” weather. Not me but definitely light sweater weather.

This morning in less than 2 hours my friends are coming for coffee. Remember how I said that we decided to get together every weekend from now on, so we are. YAY. I am excited to chat about the week since we last were together. It is great having friends that are younger as they have both have young teenagers and I hear stories of technology, friends, school, and so much more. They give me their perspective on the world and life. Different sometimes from my friends that are around my age for example. Having friends of all ages is a wonderful thing. I absolutely love it. Brings me joy and gives me a more round perspective on life and the world. Isn’t that what most people need is a broader view?

I wonder if all of my neighbours are up for the day? Do you sometimes think when you got up a bit later than you would have liked what others are doing? I do, does it matter in the grand scheme of things, not really. So I stress about it now? I only wonder.

Yesterday we had a nice long walk at my lunch break and it was nice. After work we walked only to the park and then home as I needed to prepare for my daughter’s arrival. I had all of the prep work done and was cooking supper when she arrived. The apple crisp (her favorite) in the oven and the vegetables prepared for stir fry and I had the chicken prepared as well. The water was on for the rice. I turned off the burners when I received a text that she was at the back waiting for me to open the garage door. Alvin and I went out and opened the big door and happily waited for her to park. Back in the house, burners on and started cooking. Stir frys are a quick meal so it did not take long before we were eating one of her favourite meals. We had the best visit and enjoyed supper and then apple crisp. I can tell you I had one happy happy daughter. Then before you knew it time to say goodbye until our next visit which will be next week. The following week they leave for VEGAS and the pups Aspen and Milo will be staying with us. I am on vacation during the time they are gone and cannot wait. So happy to be having a nice break surrounded by the pups.

Well it looks like the clock is slowly inching its’ way toward the arrival of my girlfriends so I best be getting this show on the road. Certainly will be enjoying my first cup of coffee this morning.

Today will be laundry and the usual but I need to figure out what to do in the backyard as the snow on the deck is basically non-existent. Too hard to take Alvin out the front every time he has to pee or poo and the backyard area is frozen ice/bit of snow on one end which would be okay but the area by the stairs and on the other side pointing to the north is one slime bucket, I do not know how else to explain it. The grass is bare in spots but so mucky and I certainly do not want him down there as it would be hard to clean both the area he used and to clean him. OH no!! So I have to figure out something. Perhaps with tomorrow be 12 degrees that area will dry up. I sure hope so. Anyway!!

I hope that you have a great Saturday!

Did anyone get pranked for April Fools? Not me. I do remember being pranked and pranking others in my youth.

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.

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.

The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! What a gorgeous morning. Alvin and I are well. The sunrise is incredible and early. Each day it is earlier than the one before and I love it. The pale oranges and pinks that just seamlessly flow into the pale blue sky and adorned with a crescent view of the moon. How can anything else be more beautiful. I am in awe. What a great way to begin a Friday with such a wonderful view. Does not get much better than this, I can tell you.

I received a text from Teddy and Kobi’s Mom and they are in town for a few days. We plan to get together and quite possibly this evening. How exciting! Always great to see our friends for both Alvin and me.

Last night with the street lamps shining down on the fresh blanket of crisp white snow, it appeared to be billions of diamonds shining from a blanket of white. It was glorious. Another Mother Nature show of absolute beauty. Simple but elegant beauty. I tried to capture the absolute wonder of it all but no camera can do it justice. I could have starred at the “diamond” covered snow all night long.

Looks like we are going to have some warmer weather for the next week or so. That will be great. Perhaps we can finally get rid of those darn snow banks that line our streets. Then we can clear the ice from our sidewalks and WE CAN ONCE AGAIN WALK. Oh, how I miss our walks and I am pretty sure that Alvin is missing them as well other than getting his jacket/sweater/harness on to go.

Tomorrow morning I am having coffee with my two “younger” girlfriends. This is going to be a weekend full of seeing friends and I am happy for that. I do plan to do my taxes on the weekend as well as laundry. So a full plan ahead.

I am thinking of how grateful I am in this moment for my life. For the past, this moment and for whatever the future brings to me which will in part be due to how I am arranging it by my thoughts. Our thoughts do become things, our futures. I am strongly attest to this.

Have the most glorious Friday. I hope that you can get outside in nature – nothing like fresh air.

Maybe just maybe we will be able to get out for a walk at lunchtime. With the snow covering the ice will gives us some traction. Fingers crossed.

Good Morning ALL! How are you today? Alvin and I are doing well. When we were outside much earlier about 4:00 a.m., a strange cat was on the railing around the fence at our neighbours, the home of Humphrey and Bogart. I hadn’t heard the cat calling out to the others but when their Dad popped his head out the window, I guess that the cat had been. We or at least I did not hear the commotion. With this weather I do not like to see cats outside. Thankfully the new few days are going to be warm. The sun is breaking through the clouds and we are well on our way to a beautiful Saturday. Mr. Alvin is trying to tell me something.

This weekend I am going to spend some time putting together the documents for my taxes so that once I have my T4 – I can go ahead and submit them. Laundry. Those are my two jobs for the weekend. We will get some walks in and also it looks like I will be chipping away at ice once again out front. Dratted ice. With this weather it happens a lot. We have so much snow and then melts and runs down the lawn onto the sidewalk where it is lower and pools freezing overnight making a deep pool of ice. That is a job that follows me every single winter. Good exercise for the arms, though. The snow banks look pretty as they glisten in the morning light.

I have not seen any coyotes or bunnies as of late, not a good sign for the rabbits. Poor little ones.

It is nice see that most of the snow has melted from the roofs as it had been accumulating. At least on my neighbours to the south. I will have to check the back of my house next time I am in the backyard.

I have been thinking of my friends and neighbours as I have not seen much of anyone as of late. With the cold weather we were not walking, then ice. No one is visiting. I think that today I will also reach out to a few of them. Perhaps we will be able to walk as far as our friend Pauline’s house. I miss her, I miss them all. Before the Pandemic I saw friends almost every week/weekend whether walking or visiting NOW if I see someone once a month, I feel blessed. I am however, grateful to be of good health so I will patiently wait till I can see them again. We can video chat and I think that would be a great idea at this point. Likely a good idea for everyone. Thank goodness for technology. We are more lucky than we know.

That SUN is starting to sparkle and shine. A great day is here for us all to enjoy.

Have an awesome day. “See” you tomorrow.

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? 10 sleeps till Christmas Eve Day. Yesterday it started to snow late afternoon and did not stop overnight. We woke up to I would say a couple feet of snow to shovel. I had to shovel some of the deck at 5:00 a.m. so that Alvin could go outside to do his business otherwise I would have lost him in the snow. Plus he likely would not have gone out. We were in bed just before 10:00 last night and not up until almost 5:00 this morning. YAY, Mr. Alvin. Before getting ready for work after getting up at 6:40, I went to shovel the front thinking that I would beat my friend’s boyfriend out to shovel the front but we were out at the same time. He was just on his way to work and only had time to do theirs, I said that I wanted to do theirs as well but just did not get out early enough. I am grateful that he did shovel their half as there is a lot of snow. Certainly do not want to overdo things. Anyway, I want to go out and shovel the driveway and ensure that my recycling isn’t covered in the snow otherwise the garbage person will not see it. They are usually out and about before now but imagine they are running late. For all those people in our area, please be careful if you have to drive anywhere today. There is one heck of a lot of snow. Thankfully it is not wet but dry snow and not cold out.

Yesterday I took the afternoon off from work to go with one of my friend’s to Costco to get groceries. I am so glad that I did. I was able to finish my shopping for the humans and get some food items for Christmas. YAY, me. It was busy but didn’t take us long to get in and get out.

Last night I delivered more Christmas baking packages to friends and neighbours. I had a few visits along the way. I was out for 1.5 hours and everyone is less than 5 minutes away. Nice to chat with my friends. Catch up.

Well I had better get out there if I am going to do some more shovelling. Be careful out there and have a great day. Feels like Christmas now.

P.S. never a dull moment with the weather.

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? We are up and at it. Mr. Alvin is having a “fit” downstairs as I hastily try to write this post midst the barking and whining. Not sure why some mornings he is better than others but that is the way that it is. I left the light on for the stairs so he knows that I am up here and I have called down to him but nothing seems to make him feel less anxious. Life in my house. I am trying. It seems whenever I get confident that things are turning around this happens. Oh well, he is fine. In good health, has a belly full of food, I just heard him take a drink of water (yup all the way up here) and he went outside at 5:00 a.m., and he is loved. So I think he is good. Just a bit on the anxious side.

Yesterday one of my friends who lives close by popped in for a visit and coffee and a game of JENGA. We chatted about life and work and it was over two hours later and we had not had a game of JENGA. She had to leave a bit later so we managed to score a couple of games of JENGA. I was also happy that she won both games. My friend seems to think that I am really good at this game and that she can never “win” against me. I personally don’t care if I win or lose, it is playing the game and being surrounded by good company. So I was very happy when she won both games. Happy for her and happy for me. Isn’t that the way life should be. Doesn’t matter if you win or lose!

My youngest brother called during our visit so I called him back after our company went home. It was so nice to hear his voice. He is a good kid, a great younger brother and he is 56. So not really a kid but he will always be that little one that I looked after when he was a baby and a small child. He lives in Calgary which is approximately 3 hours from here. It all depends on what area of the City you live in as to how long the drive can be. Anyway, his family are doing well and he is doing well and that is all that matters. We chatted about life, about family, about his job and a multitude of things before saying goodbye until next time. It was a reminder that I need to speak to my sister and catch up. Life seems to always get in the way and before you know it ….. significant time has passed.

Alvin and I went for a walk after the phone call with my brother and were so happily surprised to see our friend Pauline outside in the yard. She finished up what she was doing and joined us for a walk. We went on a different route that our normal one and ended up home almost one hour later. We slowly walked about letting Alvin take the lead. I had a sweater on under my coat and was actually hot by the time we got home. It was not hot according to the temperature check but there was no wind and the air felt warm. The walk was most enjoyable.

Okay, I can no longer retain my composure with someone squeaking downstairs so I shall go. Wishing you a wonderful day. A friend of mine “C” has a birthday today. Happy Birthday to you. We used to carpool before the Pandemic and I have not seen her since starting to work from home. Just the way things worked out. I miss our drives to and from work.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience (really working on that this morning), love, laughter, understanding and gratitude.

2021

Good Morning ALL! How are you this Thursday morning? I am doing okay. Been a rocky sleep last night but it is morning and I am up and dressed and now writing this post before starting my last work day for this week. I am looking forward to an extra long long weekend. I am off from tomorrow and go back to work next Wednesday. So two short weeks in a row. But that means lots to do on the days that I am working.

Looks like we had a light frost last night. We were outside several times during the night and early morning so I am feeling somewhat like I imagine a “zombie” to feel like …… a little sleep deprived. At one point the sky had cleared and the stars were shining brightly. That I so enjoyed. The sun is coming up as the sky begins to turn from night to morning. So beautiful. I always love the colour palette of sunrises and sunsets. So vibrant and gorgeous. A feast for the eyes. Most of the leaves have fallen from our tree in the front yard. There is something eerily stunning about a bare tree. Very cool.

I am afraid this will be short but I have a couple of things left to tell you. Yesterday it was smokey in the morning and at noon so we did not venture out for a walk. Our friend Pauline dropped by during my lunch break to drop off some apples. She offered to take Alvin for a walk as the smoke had dissipated somewhat and did not bother her so I put on his harness and leash and out they went. I forewarned her that he may not want to go. He is like that. If I am at home he does not want to leave me behind or go without me. I figured if he would go with anyone it would be Pauline. So out they went. After a few minutes there was a wee knock at the door. He would not go. I believe if I were not there – he would have gone. Kind of sweet in a way that he won’t leave me behind and that is how I tend to look at it instead of the other that he is so much a momma’s boy that he won’t go without me. My Alvin.

Near the end of the day our friend Iris, Teddy’s Mom had called but I was working so the call had gone to voicemail. I decided that we should just walk over as they were home from the farm. So after work off we went. We had a great visit with them all. I cannot believe how grown up Miss Kobi is becoming as she is not longer a wee pup. I love the word “wee.” Iris gave me some of her homemade mulled apple sauce like cranberries but made with apples. After a nice visit we were off home. Alvin had been trying to tell me something for the last bit of our visit and I found out what it was ….. he had to poop. I should know better. Really he seldom barks for no reason. I have to put on my listening cap and try not to be distracted. Anyway he had a poop on the way home and I of course picked it up in one of the bags that I always carry with me.

Once home it was, suppertime for both of us. Alvin first and then I had to wait for my supper to cook. We had a nice quiet evening.

Time to fly. Put on coffee and let the boy out again before I start work which is in just over 15 minutes. Time is zipping along.

Take Care and enjoy this October 7, 2021 day.

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

Always, Carol
