Sunday Pause (Paws): Those Furry Little Christmas Helpers

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and appreciate our furry little helpers.

Last weekend I got together with some friends I have known since elementary school to do our Christmas cookie baking. One friend just adopted a new kitty, Asha, and she was the star of the night.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Romp & Play In The Snow

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and have some fun.

Brrr…baby it’s cold outside. But that doesn’t stop a lot of people (and animals) from still getting out there and having some fun.

Do you all really know
How fun it is to play in the snow?
Sure it is pretty cold
But the joy it brings never gets old

My friend’s dog, Bogey.

So I think I’ll spend my day
Outside where I can romp & play
A Happy Sunday I wish to you
I hope you go out and have some fun too

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Friendship

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and be thankful for friends.

We all have our highs and our lows in life. If you read my post from last Sunday then you know I’m kind of at a low right now. But during this low I’ve been feeling love & support around me from some people that I didn’t even know cared. I don’t know where I’d be without them. I wrote the following poem as an outlet for what I’ve been going through and to express gratitude for the support.

WITH THE HELP OF YOUR FRIENDS

It’s an emotional journey
This thing called life
Sometimes filled with peace
And sometimes filled with strife

Chaos everywhere you turn
The world is not in a good place
Sometimes making it hard
To deal with challenges you face

Emotions are building up
You’ve kept them bottled up too long
You’re brought down to your knees
Trying to figure out what’s going wrong Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): It Might Be An Angel

Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some poetry.

I wrote a poem to go along with what I think is an adorable photo of Cino that I recently got with my new camera. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

IT MIGHT BE AN ANGEL

When I look at that sweet face
I see an angel among this place
For me the word “just” doesn’t exist
Your needs are always high on my list Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Photo Fun

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy photos of the beautiful season of fall.

We have had way below average temperatures and it has been rainy and cloudy for weeks. So when I headed out with my new camera on a fall road trip it wasn’t a very ideal day. It didn’t rain but it was still very cloudy and cold. But even so, there were many beautiful trees to see despite the weather.

Along our drive we also saw different animals such as horses, cows, and deer. Continue reading

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.
