Sunday Pause (Paws): Seeing More Clearly

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and put on those glasses.

cino-upside-down-glasses-aafbt

Sometimes we just don’t SEE
Things around us very clearly
We should try a different angle
And just let our feet dangle
Put on a pair of glasses too
We’ll get a much better view

How we SEE things around us is what we limit ourselves to. Sometimes we need to see things from another perspective. Sometimes we need another view.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Play!

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

Life can be hard, can’t it? If it weren’t for some “play” time we would probably all go crazy.

I‘m not one who goes out a lot or is super social. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to have fun or take any time to “play.” I work around children and I have a cat…I get play time. 🙂

The picture below is Cino playing and guarding her fuzzy felt ball with another one of her favorite toys “mousey” next to her while she lays and plays on our tree skirt. Yes we leave the tree skirt out all year long because Cino loves it so much! (I turned the picture into art)

I was awake at the crack of dawn
Another week has come and gone
Today is my favorite day…Sunday
I’m ready to go, I’m ready to play

How about you? What do you like to do when you take some time to “play”?

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Little Hello

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and wish all the dads a Happy Father’s Day.

A little hello from me to you
Mom is so busy, it’s true
Looking for a new home for us
There is so much to read & discuss

Sunday Pause (Paws): Fun With New

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy new things.

Isn’t it fun when you get something new? New furniture, a new haircut, a new car, etc. It’s even more fun when it’s something you can play around with.

I just got a new phone and I’m spending WAY too much timing playing around with it to get to know all of the things it can do.

I‘m especially excited about the camera. Here are a few of the very first photos I took with it.

We were taking a little walk in an area we love going to that’s by a river. We were shocked when we saw how flooded the usually beautiful walking and sitting area was. The water came way up into where the picnic tables and benches are. Notice the geese lying on the picnic table relaxing and catching some sun. It’s not bothering them. 🙂

Sunday Pause (Paws): Trying To Fit In

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?

Happy 12th Birthday Cino

Today is my sweet little Cino’s 12th birthday!

She is not a pet…she is my baby, best friend, comforter, & entertainer. She is a partner in our mission to change how the world views animals. She is family and so much more.

Happy Birthday to her and prayers for many more! 🙂

Sunday Pause (Paws): Are You Ready?

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and watch some football (if you’re into it).

It’s Super Bowl Sunday so here is a poem for you.

Do you like the game?
Are you really into it?
Putting all things aside
And got a comfy spot to sit

Snacks & drinks are ready
Friends & family gathered near
Everyone’s got their jersey on
And voices are ready to cheer

Even Butterfinger is ready to go
And he means business y’all
So there is only one question…
Are you ready for some football?

Enjoy your day.

Happy Sunday!
