It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and do some thinking.
I‘m not sure how long you have been blogging but have you ever noticed how sometimes you seem to have a lot of interaction (or Likes) on your posts and sometimes hardly at all? When it is hardly at all it makes you start to wonder why. Is it that your blogging community is busy and just not seeing your posts or maybe they just don’t like that particular post?
Some of you have been with me for a while on this blogging journey. You know that I have changed things along the way as probably many of us have. Lately it kind of seems like I am not getting a lot of interaction. It made me start wondering if it could be because I have been using cartoon images a lot more often and not writing as much. I started thinking about that and if I should try to change my posts. But I realized I really don’t want to, at least not right now, because I am finding joy in creating the cartoons.
Thinking about all of this made me also think about how we worry about our popularity or if we are fitting in. Not just with social media but with everything. But is that really what matters?
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come up with new year resolutions…or not.
I‘ve never been one to make resolutions. I’ve actually never been one that got that excited about New Years in general. So we change one number on checks when we write the date…wait does anybody write checks anymore? So we’ll soon be another year older…wait unless you’re birthday is at the end of the year. So we’ll have another January, February, March, April…well you get the point.
I hope you enjoy the poem I wrote for this post.
NO RESOLUTIONS ARE NOT FOR ME
One day out of three hundred sixty five Doesn’t magically make me strive Any day I don’t like what’s in the mirror Means I need to kick myself in the rearContinue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and put a spotlight on seniors.
November is “Adopt A Senior Pet Month” and I just couldn’t let November end without doing a post. But I wanted to do a post about seniors in general.
We start off this life depending on others to care for us and we often end this life depending on this very same thing. But there is a difference. When we’re a baby we’re seen as cute and lovable. When we’re old we’re often seen as not so cute and annoying.
But aging is the circle of life. Things WILL change.
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 →
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.
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and consider extending a helping hand for a family & their dog.
I know this is a different kind of Sunday post from what I normally do but helping animals is my mission. When I read the post an old coworker had out there about her dog, Mack, I felt I had to try to help.
Her dog has been taken from her family and is currently at a boarding facility because of some incidences of him getting out of the house or yard and running up to people or other animals and scaring them. Continue reading →
