Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and today is August 8th, 2020.

I know at least three with today as their birthday.

One of is nephew’s wife, Happy Birthday S.

One is a young cousin, Happy Birthday T.

The other is my friend from work, Happy Birthday K.

Wishing you all a great day and many happy, healthy days months and years ahead filled with laughter, love and abundance.

 

Well the sky is once again overcast.

We have not been out for a walk as yet.

Debating as I am feeling lazy.

We may wait and go a bit later.

Another windy morning.

That is life.

Choices.

The ones we make and the ones we do not.

 

Well yesterday …. last night was my family birthday celebration.

My daughter, son-in-law and grandpups Aspen and Milo came to our house bringing supper and bearing gifts.

Greek food was on the menu for a welcome change.

I was spoiled with many gifts.

Consider myself to be blessed.

Earlier my co-worker that bakes my birthday cake dropped of my fourth carrot cake order from her along with two dozen cupcakes.

The cupcakes (have not tasted as yet) are chocolate with salted caramel icing and the others are vanilla with key lime icing.

They look so yummy.

I will share some photos later.

After supper, I opened gifts and we had cake.

Followed by some time on the deck.

After a cooler day the evening was bright, sunny and warm.

Absolute perfection.

Who could ask for more …. family ….. sunshine ….

My daughter wanted to snap some photos of the three pups:  Mr. Alvin, Aspen and Milo.

Well they had other ideas.

Also Milo decided he was going to jump into my back garden.

It was cute and maddening all that once.

Grandma was mad for about 3 seconds and then laughed as we snapped photos.

Not sure why he decided to go into the garden.

Later he had a treat that he was trying desperately to bury in a flower pot.

That seems to be going around.

Alvin hid a chew treat in one of my flower pots a few days ago.

Aspen and Alvin were in one photo together.

We had a great visit.

Happy Birthday to me.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I am going to pop in on the cats next door for a visit.

Over the next couple of days I will be sharing my Birthday Cake and Cupcakes with friends and neighbours.

Because everyone needs cake from time to time.

 

Well this is going to be a quiet weekend except for the birthday celebrations.

Just plan on reading, maybe even do some writing and definitely walking.

Woo, looks like there may be some sunshine coming.

Will take a look at the weather channel and perhaps go for a walk shortly.

 

I hope that you are having a great weekend thus far.

Remember to take some time for a nice walk.

Take time to unwind, relax and enjoy life.

Take time to smell the roses.

There is something about the fragrance of flowers that makes one feel so wonderful.

 

Well I can hear Mr. Alvin moaning so that is my que to sign off.

The boss has called or sounded.

 

Take Care.

Living with kindness and respect.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Well another super HOT HOT Day in Edmonton.

I am not a heat person.

A tropical climate would not be for me.

I feel for animals in this heat …..

Of course, Alvin won’t stay in the bedroom with the fan blowing cold air.

He has to be with me in the hot office.

No fan and even with the window open there is no cool air.

So I guess this will be short and sweet.

I just cannot leave him in here for ten minutes or so while I do my blog.

He will not let me out of his sight.

 

One of my girl friends texted out of the blue to ask if she could come over.

She brought a nice “beverage” with her and I enjoyed it immensely.

We sat in the house and then on the deck.

 

I have some photos that I want to share but it is taking too long to download/upload them from phone to the computer.

They will be for another day.

Man it is hot in this room.

I can feel my forehead starting to release droplets of “water.”

 

Alvin is panting like crazy.

 

Update he is feeling better despite the heat wave.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Two more days of work and then vacation.

 

So excited.

 

Looks like another storm tonight.

I watered my potted flowers and moved some of them into the shelter of the house.

 

Thank goodness for fans.

 

Have an awesome Thursday.

 

Take care.

Be healthy.

 

Living with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 20th day of July 2020.

The sun is shining brightly here in Edmonton.

The sky is a bright blue (no rain clouds).

The morning air remains cool and refreshing and there is only the slightest hint of a breeze.

 

Well our household is not back to normal.

Perhaps it never will.

Mr. Alvin and I slept on the sofa last night.

I figured one less time he would have to go upstairs and I have been carrying him down.

So have to keep that to a minimum.

He never has liked me to be out of sight and now even less.

It took us awhile to get settled down.

He did jump off the sofa last night and cried as he made contact with the floor.

Walking over to his bed on the floor he laid down.

I then laid back down on the sofa but a bit later he came back to the sofa for the night.

It was warm in the house even with the window open a crack.

So I decided at one point to turn on the fan.

Once we settled down we both slept.

This morning we did all of our main floor routine before coming upstairs.

I figured that I would just come upstairs in time to brush my teeth and wash my face, get dressed, write this post and then go to work.

I can then slip downstairs to grab my coffee and he usually stays up here anyway so that should work.

By the time coffee break comes it will be about four hours since he went for a bathroom break so I will have to carry him downstairs.

Very carefully I might add.

 

Most of our day yesterday was good as we had lots of company.

Two of my friends came in the morning for coffee and then my daughter came for a visit as well.

I always enjoy spending time with the girls.

 

We did not go out for a walk but I am hoping to try again today.

I think they are forecasting about 25 degrees today so it will be a late afternoon early evening walk.

Likely just a short one …. I don’t want to push him.

I understand as well that he is getting older.

He turned 11 in January so that makes him 11.5 years old.

Now that was an approximate date but not out by much, I don’t think.

Last night I also texted with one of my friends from Regina.

I am not sure why we didn’t just call each other but texting is beginning to be a habit for us all.

Even though it takes longer to get a thought across and then there is spell check and don’t get me started on that “feature.”

 

So I guess as I recently read in a post by Maria Shriver …. take one day at a time, sometimes half a day or sometimes one hour at a time….

Not exact words but you get the idea.

I really enjoy reading posts and Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper.

She just makes sense to me.

 

I need that coffee this morning.

This weekend was a revelation as well.

I had decided just at the end of last week to change my August vacation from two weeks to one.

Then with the recent events starting with the after hours calls on Thursday night and then Alvin and with help with my daughter; I realized that I do need to take two weeks vacation.

It has been a long haul and with recent events, I need a nice break.

Time to do my thing even if that thing is just relaxing with Alvin.

So I emailed my Manager to see if I can once again change my mind.

I hope that it is not a big deal.

Sometimes we don’t realize just how close we are to “that point” until someone tells us.

That point has arrived and if I want to stay healthy in body, mind and soul, I have to look after me.

I have to stop always putting everyone and everything in front of my needs.

Meaning that if I do not look after me first – then how can I look after anyone or anything else.

That sounds better.

Man, I need to run and grab that coffee.

 

We had another two big storms yesterday.

One about 5 p.m. and the other a short time later.

Lots of heavy rainfall, thunder and lightning.

I don’t think that the storms are helping Alvin much either.

Seems like everything just has come to a head this weekend.

 

I have learned so much this weekend.

I do hope and pray that Alvin recovers quickly and in full.

Thinking that his days of jumping up and down from the bed, sofa, chair and possibly stairs might be over.

Perhaps he will be able to do the stairs with some help.

Definitely not onto the hard floor even though I have strategically placed mats with padding in the places where he goes up and down.

These past few months have been full of change.

I have been trying to roll with it and find my way.

I guess we all have …..

 

Time to go and grab my coffee.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Please keep Alvin in your thoughts and with positive energy.

I will monitor him for one more day and if no change back to the vet tomorrow …..

Big sigh from the boy as he lays on his bed not far away from me.

Living with kindness and respect.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Oh what a beautiful morning,

Oh what a beautiful day.

It is sunny with a full on powder blue sky and there is a breeze wafting in through the office window.

Making this the most perfect Saturday morning.

Today June 20, 2020.

Hey 20, 20 20.

Cool.

Just realized that ….. okay slow to the party!

What can I say?

Added bonus I can hear the music of birds drifting in the breeze through my window.

 

Well we had a great Friday.

In the morning one of our neighbours and friends stopped by with Starbuck coffee for a little visit.

Alvin and I went for a walk at noon.

After work I cooked my first of three new meals from Good Food.

It was yummy.

After supper we walked over to our friends down the street.

We spent just over three glorious hours swinging on their patio swing.

Alvin sat in between us here and there.

He ran around the back yard not as much as previous year.

He was more content to just walk around sniffing.

Somehow in this immaculate yard he managed to find a bone of some sort tucked into the bed of river rocks under their deck.

The deck is off their dining room so it is raised and you take stairs up from the backyard.

Anyway, he found that darn bone.

We managed to get it away from him, not an easy task once he has his jaws secured.

In the beginning it was just me, Alvin and Irene.

A few minutes later her husband and our friend Norbert came down and joined in the conversation.

We had a great time.

Alvin loves them.

Norbert tried getting him to run after a ball he found in their shed but he was not really interested.

The train has left the station in that regard or at least most days.

It was so nice to sit outside in a private backyard enjoying great company on a Friday night.

They have the most lush and most delectable colour of green lawn that I have ever seen.

 

In 2020, the June solstice occurs on Saturday, June 20, marking the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

So what that means for us, is the longest day of the year.

Perhaps it might be close to 11 p.m. before the sun actually goes completely “to bed” and darkness befalls us.

 

Well on this longest day of the year.

It will be the usual suspects …. laundry, putz in the yard and garden, bit of cleaning.

RELAXING.

I see that on my calendar.

A walk sooner or later.

Likely later.

Supposed to be a warm one today.

 

Time to go and put on the coffee pot.

Get this party going.

Okay perhaps not quite anyone’s idea of a party but let’s get this going …..

 

Have an awesome day.

Remember to laugh and relax.

So some chores.

Perhaps help someone outside your household with a task or chore.

Living with kindness and respect.

 

As we continue our day living with kindness and respect,

I almost forgot to mention this good news.

Just as we were leaving last night to go out …. Humphrey’s Mom announced the newest member to their family.

A baby kitten name BOGART.

Welcome to our family and neighbourhood “little one.”

I see visits in our future for sure.

 

Happy Days.

 

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Oh, no another photo subject !!!

 

 

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning ALL,

Friday April 10, 2020.

So quiet in the house.

But then again it is always quiet in our house as it is only me and Alvin.

I was thinking this morning of all those single folks such as me, sitting alone in their homes.

I have a brother and sister who are among us single folks.

My heart goes out to all those folks who are alone.

The quiet can be almost crippling sometimes for some people.

Even for me.

I am blessed to have Alvin who gives me the push to go for walks.

I do like walking and I have him to keep me company.

More and more people in my neighbourhood are out walking.

Whether they are alone or pairs or in family groups.

People are out and about ….

It is too hard to stay in the house all of the time.

As long as we practice “social distancing” when outside being outside is SO good for us.

The fresh air and the exercise and the socialization.

If it you are by yourself out walking like I am with Alvin.

Even folks we do not know we always say “hello.”

That is socializing.

We all need that now more than ever.

I do think of folks who live on farms, in small towns, in rural settings.

People who going to visit friends and neighbours was the world to them.

For the past three days we have been outside for TWO walks.

Yesterday we bumped into Alvin’s best friend Teddy, his sister Kobi and Mom.

So we set up a playdate for Alvin and Teddy.

Teddy will be coming over this morning and stay until sometime this afternoon.

I am happy that Alvin is still able to spend time with his friend.

Oh and while out on our walk after work.

I noticed the garage door was up from across the street as we neared our friends house.

So we crossed and while practising social distancing we had the best visit in their garage.

Alvin of course, got some pats and attention.

We talked about weather, the world economy and at home, getting groceries, working from home and so much more.

I told them about my geranium as we talked about our flower gardens and that they may not be.

But I said that I would gladly share some of my geranium so that she could have some pretty pinkness in her garden.

I was so happy to have a visit with them even if it was from a distance.

They are older than me and I worry about them.

Even though they are in good health.

I think that people are beginning to come with creative ways to met with friends and family during this time.

When the snows melts we could gather in garages and on front lawns.

Probably not able to have too many people but in small groups of three or four and practice the social distancing.

We can visit.

So important not only to wash your hands, eat properly, gets lots of sleep, stay hydrated but to have social contact is important to our sanity.

We don’t have to be touching to have social contact.

Just be close enough to chat which is okay ….. six feet or two metres apart.

This summer may be different for a great many of us.

Unlikely that we can run out and pick up flowers from the local nursery or maybe we will.

I hope so.

 

I was going to share some photos of my geraniums but alas I am suffering from technical difficulties.

So will do that later.

Teddy will be here soon and I still have to have breakfast.

We slept in ….. yup …. we did.

Bed later as I read until quite late.

Poop to pick up.

Toast to make.

Coffee to perk.

Quiet day ahead …. Alvin with his friend, walking and just vegging.

We have three days ahead to do laundry and do my taxes and whatever else I decide to add to the list.

Oh, the sun is coming out.

More snow will melt.

YAY.

 

Happy Friday.

Living with kindness and respect.

I/We remain,

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Morning All,

Welcome to a bright and clear blue sky on this Sunday morning.

Our time changed.

We flipped our clocks ahead by one hour here in Edmonton, Alberta.

I just returned from shovelling once again out front and going to look after Humphrey and Cynder.

Changing food, water, litter box and so on.

Then I gathered up Mr. Humphrey as he was happily waiting at the door for me to do so.

I carried the shovel in one hand and Humphrey in the other arm.

I am so happy to see that the snow has stopped falling.

We have so much.

I will have to shovel the driveway as well.

My driveway is at the back of the garage.

This morning I did some on the deck as well.

We have lots of ice build up so where there is ice, I left some snow cover.

Especially out front.

Gives a bit of traction when walking and less chance of falling and hurting oneself.

Thinking about all those folks including me that are out walking with their pups.

 

Yesterday was a great day.

My daughter, her husband and grand pups dropped by for a visit.

We had coffee and I share the chocolate chip cookies and no bake energy bites with them.

I also sent the remainder of the cookies home with them.

Less for me to eat.

 

Later on, Alvin’s best friend Teddy and his Mom are coming for tea and a visit.

Then we gals will head on over to the grocery store.

I am a bit anxious to see if our nearby grocery store still has bathroom tissue.

Some of the people I work with were telling stories that the places they had gone were out of bathroom tissue and Walmart actually had bare shelves.

If so, the worries of the Coronavirus have hit home for sure.

There are more and more reports on the news from around the world of shortages, closures of businesses and schools.

Hospitals are crazy busy.

I am going to remain calm in this storm.

Wash my hands as often as I usually do (after bathroom, after being in public and so on).

Covering ones face when coughing and sneezing and then washing hands is so important.

I even notice at work people taking great liberty with coughing and sneezing.

Forgetting that is how germs are spread.

We are cleaning our desks and workspaces with wipes.

When on the bus, I am wearing my gloves and not touching anything.

One night on the way home a teenager was on his cell phone, wiping his dripping nose with his hand, arm and sleeve and then going on his phone.

ARGH.

He was old enough to know better.

 

Anyway I am looking forward to seeing our friends later on.

Humphrey is downstairs.

Alvin is of course at my side.

Going to head to the shower, need to feel some refreshing water hit my body.

 

Thursday night we are going out for supper to celebrate my daughter’s 40th Birthday.

So excited to celebrate my baby’s birthday with my kids.

Tuesday is the birthday of my son-in-law’s brother.

Happy Birthday D (early).

 

Okay, time to get going here.

Lots to do.

Have to have some toast and coffee.

I think I have worked up an appetite.

Happy Happy Sunday.

 

Be kind and respectful always of everyone and everything in your path.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Friday Morning.

One step closer to Saturday.

 

Do you have a favourite day of the week?

I would say that mine is Saturday.

We can sleep in a bit if we choose.

Breakfast is always toast and that is my weekend treat.

Sometimes with Cheez Whiz.

I know that it is not really a healthy choice but I love the taste.

Most times it is peanut butter and saskatoon jam.

Sometimes just peanut butter.

Other times it may be cinnamon and sugar (brown sugar).

I can listen to music or the television as I run (okay walk) up and down the stairs doing laundry and cleaning.

Even though I could be more busy than work sometimes – it is wonderful to be busy at home.

In my very own house.

I love my house.

Did I mention that before to you?

Nothing fancy but yet it is to me.

The phone just rang downstairs so I made a mad dash down to see an unknown area code.

I answered but nothing.

Yikes.

That will get your heart pumping.

Back to the weekend, to Saturday.

Usually if Alvin has an appointment with the vet it is made for Saturday.

Otherwise the day is spent mostly at home.

Sometimes there is baking.

Other times I may have a coffee date with two of my friends in the neighbour.

Sometimes I sip on my coffee and just look out the living room for a bit of time.

Taking in my neighbourhood.

Sometimes I look out of the office or kitchen windows.

Taking in my neighbourhood.

We can stay up later although we seldom stay up very late.

 

Tomorrow my daughter, son-in-law and pups are coming for a visit after lunch as their pups have vet appointments with our Dr. Karen.

We started to go to see Dr. Karen as my first grand pups were clients of hers.

It will be wonderful to have a visit with them.

Also we are looking after Mr. Humphrey for the weekend.

He will be with us during the day and go home for the night.

I will have to ensure that he is home during the pups visit.

Aspen and cats do not mix.

Well almost time to leave for work.

One more trip outside.

 

I hope that you have a wonderful day.

A reminder to me and to you, be kind and respectful.

Some days when folks are yelling and mean-spirited it is difficult.

But we don’t know their stories.

I am saying this for me not necessarily for you.

I have to be reminded as well.

I am human and sometimes I falter.

Perfection is in the learning every day.

 

Happy Friday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

PS: we did manage to get a pretty good walk in and surprise we walked on the other side of the street.  I wanted to check out the path that I will take to the bus this morning.

Luckily it is pretty clear.

Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and today is Saturday the 14th day of December 2019.

We are coming closer to Christmas with each passing day.

Some folks are stressed as they have not started shopping, baking or decorating or wrapping.

Some folks have stressed as they have finished shopping, baking, decorating and wrapping but feel as though they are missing something.

See how it does not matter at which point you are at someone is always going to be stressed.

As I age, keeping it simple is the most important.

Now sometimes I may do/change my plan as I did with the cookies/baking.

Just to be a “cookie hero.”

New phrase but same meaning as “people pleaser” or “cannot say NO when someone gives a compliment.”

That is what happened with me and the baking.

I had decided that I was only going to bake sugar cookies this Christmas and a small batch of fudge for one little boy.

I had decided that I was not going to participate in the “cookie exchange” at work.

It is not really an exchange but there ended up being 15 people participating.

We were supposed to bring enough for everyone in the group to have some.

Now people pass by where the cookies are that are not participating and of course, have one.

But at the same time we always have treats out and about so doesn’t really matter.

I am doing as I have done other years, wrapping them individually for each person.

So they will be just for that person.

I ended up baking fudge, sugar cookies and couple of kinds of chocolate chip cookies.

I would say that I have more than enough for every person/group/event.

 

Story from Friday December 13, 2019.

As I mentioned yesterday my daughter was going to pick me up from work and we were going to go to PETSMART and pick up the clipper head so that I could give Mr. Alvin a haircut.

She would then drop me off continue to COSTCO (pick up my few items, as well) and then come back to my house for supper.

So ended up she did not get away from work on time – much later as they were short staffed and she is in Management, so she could not leave the new staff person alone.

By the time she left her office, got to her car and over to me it was 4:45 p.m.

She was tired and frustrated.

No blame there.

The car needed gas so we stopped at a nearby SAFEWAY GAS BAR and I ran to the SAFEWAY store and grabbed a couple of items.

One of our long time staff members had retired and we had a big party for her at the office.

There was so much food that they were asking folks if they wanted to take some.

I took a few things for us for dinner and grabbed some salad as well.

After we were done (which was quick) we found that there was a PET store nearby so decided to stop there and grab the clipper head and some Christmas gifts for our fur babies and their friends.

I asked one of the staff at the pet store and no they did not carry that particular clipper head.

There was no way that I was going to spend more than $100 to buy a new one so we picked up a few gifts and left.

The traffic was so bad and backed up and SLOW that we just continued home.

COSTCO would wait until next week (better for me, anyway).

Poor Alvin was waiting patiently.

We arrived home at 6:30 p.m.

CRAZY.

Snowing …..

Anyway, Alvin got to go outside and have dinner and all was forgiven.

We had a bite to eat and visited before I filled a tin of Christmas goodies and she was on her way.

It was almost 9:00 before I actually sat down for a break.

Dishes and tidying up and stuff.

 

So my plans changed for today.

I was going to be giving Mr. Alvin a haircut right about now.

Needless to say we were not up when we should have been.

But that is okay.

We are having company at 1:00 p.m. so time to eat breakfast and put on some laundry.

Tidy up the house (which to be fair looks good) but I want to vacuum and wash the main floor and do the bathrooms before she arrives.

So there is time.

It is almost 9:00 a.m. – the coffee is brewed.

Time to throw on some clothes and get going.

 

I hope that you all have a wonderful Saturday, December 14, 2019.

Remember that no matter what is thrown your way …. you just take a deep breath and if you need to scream going into the bathroom and SCREAM.

Not an actual SCREAM that would wake the neighbours but a silent scream at the top of your lungs.

It is amazing how wonderful you feel after releasing all that anxiety and frustration.

It works.

 

Have a great day.

Remember there are not many things that happen in life that cannot be changed, fixed or put off.

Of course, there are some things not the majority of things that we deem to be so important are not really in the grand scheme of life.

 

Happy Saturday.

Coffee is ready.

Yes, I am going.

 

Always, Carol & a patient Mr. Alvin.

 

Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and welcome to a sky filled with a soft palette of pinks and oranges.

The sky looks as though you mixed some fog in with the sunrise.

It is absolutely gorgeous.

I just snapped a photo but the camera lens just does not grasp that wondrous beauty.

 

Humphrey unexpectedly has joined us today while his Mom is going out of town to visit family.

So Alvin will have some company while I clean the house and prepare for my girls to visit tonight.

We, three friends are going out for supper to a nearby restaurant called “Original Joes.”

This is our “Christmas party.”

Once supper is over we will retire to my house for a visit, perhaps a few drinks and maybe even a sweet treat.

Everyone can walk home from my house so not drinking and driving will happen.

There will be some cleaning and laundry to do today.

My friend who sells the FIFTH AVENUE JEWELRY is dropping off an order today around noon.

I will go with Alvin for a walk at some point.

We walked last night for our full walk.

Last night I visited my friends down the street.

We had such a great visit.

I was there for over three hours.

The time passed by so quickly.

 

With respect to our our family member who had surgery yesterday.

He is doing well and I pray that each and every report is great news.

It will definitely mean more hospital time but under the circumstances that is a must.

 

Well time to get this show on the road.

I actually took Monday off so that I would have some extra time at home finish Christmas cards and letters.

Some downtime.

Works has been crazy busy for me but I can finally see the light.

 

Well time to get dressed and start the laundry.

Check on the boys.

Alvin keeps walking back and forth so that means Humphrey is now upstairs.

I guess he likes to keep an eye on him.

Company?

 

Have an awesome Saturday.

I hope that life is treating you well.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Even though sometimes it is hard to be kind and respectful – we still have to put our best foot forward.

I had a bad day yesterday.

Not everyone is always happy about decisions.

I should know that by now.

 

 

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Well here we are at Monday morning.

The sky is filled with dark blue rain clouds.

Sounds like they have forecasted rain for this day.

Tomorrow my friend is taking me to the Devonian Garden to check out the new Aga Khan Garden at the Devonian Gardens just a few minutes away from my home,

and just outside the City of Edmonton.

Alvin is curled up on his blue blanket beside my chair.

I would love to be curled up beside him as it is cool in the house this morning.

It was difficult to remove myself from under the blanket that I was covered with on the sofa.

But it is time to get up and at it.

Vacation day or not.

There are things to do.

Vacation has to be a good mix of work and play.

My sister comes in just 5 sleeps so the house has to be ready.

We are getting there.

Today is Alvin’s hair cut and bath day.

Tomorrow the Devonian Garden which is a birthday gift from my friend.

There is some cleaning, laundry, shopping to do before Saturday but there is time.

Some planning …..

Hopefully the sun will shine some more as I find it difficult to push myself into action especially with days to go.

I guess procrastination would be the word.

Making a list always helps, I find.

I am looking up at my beautiful bulletin boards.

Thinking of what should be displayed on them.

There are still finishing touches waiting.

This is where I shall end this post.

Things to do …. list to make.

 

Living each day with kindness and respect for myself and for others.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
