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”

Posing for pics looking our best
Hoping others are impressed

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

Sunday Pause (Paws): A True Pause

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.

Sunday Pause (Paws): So Cute

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

I am sharing a video from a few years ago. The video has pics of pets from family, friends, and followers. They’re so cute they’re worth sharing again. 😊

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Beauty, It’s All Around

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

Things are so busy for me with the move and I can tell will be for a while. But where I live the last few days we’ve had beautiful weather and I made sure I took time to sit back and enjoy it.

I stopped unpacking and organizing around 6:00 last night so I could sit down, look out the window and enjoy having the windows open, write this post and watch “Jurassic World.” I do not like horror movies or Godzilla type movies but there is something about Jurassic movies I do like. Except, of course, the parts where the dinosaurs are chasing after a pig or when a goat is tied up waiting to be their dinner. 😦

The picture art below is of the beautiful tree right outside my window.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Naps In Laps

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

I am still creating posts on my smartphone because I am still waiting for my internet to get hooked up. Grrrrr…why do things in life have to be so difficult? Doesn’t it seem rare that things just go smoothly?

Ok. I know I’m being a negative Nelly. It’s Sunday, time to kick back, relax, and sometimes you just need to close your eyes and take a nap.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For New Surroundings

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and for us…take in new surroundings.

The move went fine but there is still so much to do and get used to. It is always very strange when in a new home. I am having trouble sleeping and getting into a groove around here. Cino is too. She spent the first couple days hiding but is now wandering around most of the new place. But I can tell she is uneasy and confused.

We now have a stairway and she spends alot of time going up and down the steps and meowing. I’m not sure if she’s having fun or stressed. I don’t think she’s ever experienced steps before. New surroundings, new adventure.
