Sunday Pause (Paws): Kindness Matters

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and…be kind.

We’re not suppose to put on our Sunday best, clothing & attitude, only on Sundays. Kindness should be in the daily things.

I recently received this message from someone at work congratulating me on 14 years there. Continue reading

Oh Deer

I told myself I wasn’t going to sit at the computer tonight and that I was going to just lie under the covers and rest. I tried.

Oh deer, I’m wiped out.

I haven’t been feeling good for a number of days now, I hardly slept last night due to a severe thunderstorm, and work has been really crazy busy. I came home from work early and planned to lie on the couch under my blanket and take a nap but no luck. I did rest for a long time on the couch and even had a hot cup of tea. But I started getting bored & restless. So here I am. Continue reading

Things Are A-Changin

Things are a-changin!

We’re in that in between time where summer is ending and fall is approaching. I’m noticing a small amount of leaves turning. But with the rain we are getting today those leaves are already falling off the trees and onto the ground.

I don’t mind this weather at all! I will be spending the night under a blanket on the couch with some tea and an apple candle burning. Ahhh…the small things can be so comforting.

What’s the weather like where you are?

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Conversation

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and hopefully enjoy taking a little time to read a poem I wrote. It’s a conversation between Cino & I.

THE CONVERSATION

You brought me into your home
From that place you set me free
We’ve been together for a while
But do you really know me?

I first saw you online
And then drove miles to adopt you
You convinced me you were the one
With that look and meow I knew

You keep me safe and fed
Even though sometimes you make me wait
Minutes between my meals
Uh hem…I need to set you straight

I love it when you decide
It’s time for you to eat
Your persistent meows and stares
Until you get that treat

Writer’s Block

As a blogger, do you ever feel like there just isn’t much to write about? Of course I am just talking about certain times, not all of the time. This is me lately. I know it’s just a temporary “writer’s block.” Sometimes I have tons to write about that I have to keep a list.

I don’t want to force myself to create a post if I don’t really have anything to say because then I just don’t feel it will be a very good one. This is one of the reasons why I stopped doing “Tuesday Tales.” I have kept “Sunday Pause (Paws)” though because it gives me an opportunity once a week to write a more positive, happy post (at least most of them are). But I do have a hard time coming up with something for those too at times.

There are times when I feel more inspired to create an image than to write about something. But then sometimes the image says it all like this one that I created.

Sunday Pause (Paws): It’s A Jungle Out There

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy being home.

After a week of unexpected fees, upset clients, and news stories about animal abuse cases, I was so ready for the weekend. I was thinking of writing a post or a poem to express myself, which you know I do, but I decided to stay on the lighter side and make a little comic about the reality of our society.

I Can’t Let It Be

I can’t even bring myself to read the full story about the dogs & roosters rescued from a place in Wisconsin. I read the dogs had wounds & scars and the roosters were surgically altered for fighting. That was all I could handle and I can barely handle that.
