Sunday Pause (Paws): Into The New Year

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax!

Here we are into the New Year. We had a mellow New Year’s Eve and just snuggled on the couch. New Year’s Day we went to see the movie “A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood.” What a great example Mr. Rogers was for all of us. He really tuned in and listened to others, validated feelings, saw that everyone matters, and was very kind. His kindness extended to non-humans as well. He was a vegetarian who said he could never eat something that was walking around or that has a mother. This movie was an encouraging way to start off the New Year!

When Cino and I were talking resolutions this is the look I got.

Sunday Pause (Paws): So Cute

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax!

I am sharing a video from a few years ago. The video has pics of pets from family, friends, and followers. They’re so cute they’re worth sharing again. 😊

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Beauty, It’s All Around

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

Things are so busy for me with the move and I can tell will be for a while. But where I live the last few days we’ve had beautiful weather and I made sure I took time to sit back and enjoy it.

I stopped unpacking and organizing around 6:00 last night so I could sit down, look out the window and enjoy having the windows open, write this post and watch “Jurassic World.” I do not like horror movies or Godzilla type movies but there is something about Jurassic movies I do like. Except, of course, the parts where the dinosaurs are chasing after a pig or when a goat is tied up waiting to be their dinner. 😦

The picture art below is of the beautiful tree right outside my window.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Change

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and sometimes in our lives…embrace change.

This has been a tough week/weekend for me because our time is coming to an end in our current home. I didn’t think I would feel so emotional. I’m really concerned about how Cino will do with this move, although in time I know she will get adjusted, as I will. Change can be exciting but it also can be scary.

With moving day very near I don’t have a lot of time to write this post. We’re buried in boxes but we wanted to peek in and say HI!

Happy Sunday!

We can make a change for the future of animals…

Another change for us is we are now on Instagram. Hope to see you there!

Moms Are The Best

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and wish all the moms out there a wonderful day!

I chose this picture of my mom because it really does truly portray her. She can be so silly and that is what we love about her!

My mom is a courageous, strong, beautiful, independent woman. She has been through so much…divorce, cancer, and even the death of her own child (just to name a few). Yet she has always been an example of how in tough times you press on. Continue reading
