Sunday Pause (Paws): Birds & Nature Pulling It All Together

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

I‘m working on pulling together a few of the rooms in our new place. The pics in the collage are some of the main items and color scheme I am going with for a bedroom. It’s funny because I’m thinking when it’s all done it might be my favorite room and it started off my least favorite.

I love the beauty of nature and the beautiful beings that live in it. I’m enjoying the bird decorative items and they inspired this poem. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Festive Bow Tie

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

Today I wrote a little poem and added pics/images of Cino in her bow tie to accompany it. 🙂

We’re in that time of year
When everyone is filled with cheer
Dressing up with a festive bow tie
Singing “Angels We Have Heard On High”

Sunday Pause (Paws): Friends, Cats, & Hot Flashes

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

My two friends and I just had our third annual friends cookie making day. We have been friends since elementary school and we don’t see a lot of each other during the year so this is a really special time.

I like to try new recipes and this year not only did I try a new one but I made vegan cookies for the first time ever. You know I’m always thinking of animals! They were not easy to cut out so I settled for alot of mitten shapes. They aren’t the prettiest cookie either and a bit on the sweet side but still a decent cookie.

I love this pic I took of my friend’s cat in the tree. She is so much fun and always right there to “help.” Continue reading

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

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

I was really feeling the need to take the weekend off…so I did. I allowed myself to stay in my pajamas and slippers all day on Saturday.
