Sunday Pause (Paws): Celebrating Birthday At Home With Cino

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

I‘m sorry I haven’t been around as much. I hope you will continue to check in for posts and continue following me. I assure you helping animals is where my heart and soul is. I just don’t have the time or motivation right now for regular posts. Once I finish getting my new home together and some upcoming projects I will post more. Do you follow me on Facebook? I post images with messages and other things a lot more regular. Please check me out there too.

Well I guess it has to get brought up….coronavirus. Are we tired of hearing about this!? But it is a very serious issue affecting all of us. My birthday was yesterday and my family had plans for me today but we had to cancel them. It is obviously much more important that we all stay healthy (and we can always reschedule the birthday celebration).

Some people were asking me what I was going to do at home for my birthday. I said I will be working on the office. They said “well that doesn’t sound like much fun at least have a glass of wine while you do it.” Someone else said “she doesn’t drink” followed by “you have to do something fun for yourself.” 🙂

I get it. They wanted to make sure I had a good birthday. But having a relaxing day at home with Cino is actually a nice birthday! Any dent I can make in getting the office unpacked and cleaned out is also time well spent.

Happy Sunday! Take care of yourself and others during this crazy time. Prayers for good health for you all!

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Tale Of Caution

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

The weather is changing where I live. Winter is here! I am really nervous about driving in it. I am used to driving only blocks to get to work and most other places. Now that we have moved I have a commute. Because of the weather and traffic I decided to get snow tires for the first time ever. I am hoping that will make a difference. The season has barely begun and there has already been treacherous driving conditions and many accidents. It made for an idea for a post today so I have a little rhyme for you. I hope you enjoy!

A WORD OF CAUTION

The alarm clock rings
The birds outside sing
You jump out of bed
Need to get everyone fed

No time to make a meal
Jump in car hands on wheel
McDonalds is on the way
Gotta get on with the day

Let me give you a word of caution
Things happen when you’re not careful & watching
And the crew is not ready for the disorder
From this kind of drive through food order

Sunday Pause (Paws): Just Be (and Thank You)

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

In the United States people are celebrating Memorial Day this weekend. My family was going to celebrate some birthdays but now it looks like we’ll be waiting until next weekend. So instead I think we’ll hang out, go for a walk, enjoy the beautiful weather, and take time to…just be.

What are your plans?

Whatever you’re celebrating, wherever you are
Be sure to relax and set your mind free
Set the busy schedule aside on this day
And give yourself time to just be, “JUST BE”

Chocolate Rabbits Instead of Real Rabbits

Easter is almost here and sadly many people think a rabbit is a great gift for their child. They are not a thing that should be thought of as a gift or object to be given for a holiday.

Sadly most people don’t do the research to find out what is required to have a rabbit as a pet. They actually require A LOT of care to be happy and healthy. I am an animal advocate and I had no idea how much care they required until a friend of mine adopted one.

Because of the impulsiveness to get a rabbit on Easter people aren’t educated on the proper care care which leads to a lot of neglected, returned, or abandoned rabbits.

It was a snowy and very windy night here. A perfect night for hot cocoa, a blanket, and snuggles with Cino. We stayed in and stayed warm & safe. What did you do?

Cheers to a blessed 2019 for you and your furiends.

Happy Halloween 2018

BOOOOOOOOOO!
Did I scare you?
I dressed up as a ghost

For this Halloween post
But mom says instead of being frightful
I am so cute and delightful
So I guess I’ll just say to all
I hope you have a Halloween ball Continue reading

Fireworks Are No Fun For Furry Ones

If you live in the United States it’s about to get real loud!

They may be pretty and we may have been doing them for hundreds of years, but it is now that we are truly paying attention to what affects fireworks have on our animal friends.
