2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you this very windy Thursday morning? Or at least it is windy here in Edmonton, Alberta. I have to apologize (which I have already done) for forgetting to shout out Happy Birthday wishes to my younger brother. I completely forgot that yesterday was his birthday when I was doing this blog and then I got sidetracked when Alvin and I had gone downstairs after I got dressed and wrote my blog to find an Emergency Vehicle, Firetruck and Ambulance parked outside my house. The Head vehicle turned around and left leaving the Firetruck and Ambulance. The Emergency staff from the Ambulance were outside donning their COVID19 gear of gown, masks and gloves. Kind of through me for a loop. I had no idea where they were headed. As they were not coming to my house, they were next closest to Humphrey & Bogart’s house, my heart sank. When they walked past her house, I quickly texted Sonja. My heart was racing. I know most of my neighbours …. some obviously better than others. In a matter of minutes the “phone lines were hot” with people checking on me. They were in the house for what seemed forever but as this was a work day for me, I could not stand at the window gawking out. At some point the firetruck left leaving the ambulance. A bit later I checked and they were back at the ambulance removing their gear. They did not place anyone in the back. I hope that all is well. Not like you can knock on their door and ask. I am not nosey just concerned. So that started my day. Not long after that the wind got up and it started to rain. I could only think how grateful that I was for making Alvin’s vet appointment for Tuesday and not Wednesday. After some rain the rain turned to fluffy snow. So the sidewalks are icy where the wind blew the snow away. I found that out when I went to shovel last night. We did not go for a walk as we had a mini blizzard happening. I did some walking on the spot to get some steps in and of course up and down the stairs several time. Mr. Alvin is now whining at the doorway to the office so I had better get going.

So it was quite the Wednesday. I had a nice chat with my brother last night. He had a good day. Said it was raining in Calgary …. raining for his birthday. The first time he can remember that happening.

Oh and President Trump was impeached for a second time. How could I forget that. This Wednesday will not be forgotten anytime soon.

Time to get this day going.

I hope that you have an awesome Thursday. Hoping you are well and take care, be safe.

Continuing to live our lives with kindness, respect and compassion.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 2nd day of March, 2018.

Well no storm happened overnight.

There was strong gusty winds but no snow as yet.

Hopefully it dissipated.

I would not want to wish a “winter storm” onto anyone.

 

Alvin has been “not his usual” self this morning.

When I was getting ready I leaned and with my hand gently caressed his neck and back of his head.

Normally he would walk away and shake it off but not this time; he put his paw up to “ask nice.”

He did not want me to stop.

Oh, how I love me Alvin.

What a guy.

 

Well I am running late …. we had something happen out of the norm last night and ended up going to bed late and it was semi stressful for both me and Alvin.

No worries, we are okay.

Anyway, am wishing could stay here and snuggle with my boy but I am off to work.

Thankfully it is the weekend.

 

Just a thought ….. sometimes we all like things that are slightly off character.

Maybe a hug when you are not the hugging type.

 

Have an awesome Friday.

Stay safe, keep warm and love the one you are with.

 

Special Hello to:  all those folks who are feeling lonely, you are loved.

Always, Carol & Alvin
