Sunday Pause (Paws): The Three Leaf Clover

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (maybe).

I personally don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I do, however, enjoy seeing the children where I work make leprechaun traps and go on a treasure hunt looking for them and their gold. πŸ™‚

I decided to focus on the three leaf clover and what it is said to represent: faith, hope, & love.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Poetry Read Aloud

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy a poetry reading by me.

If you have been following me for a while you most likely know that I am always trying new things such as photography, editing, poetry and now the newest…making videos/reading aloud. With these new things I still always have animal advocacy in mind. I’m sure I have a lot to learn yet but through some online research about poetry I found that it is important to read it aloud. The following was taken from dummies.com.

The music of poetry β€” that is, its sounds and rhythms β€” isn’t just for the eye and the mind, it’s meant to be given voice.

I never really thought about it but I get it because that is exactly what I have to do. To tell how the “flow” of a poem is going I have to read it out loud to myself as I am writing it.

Now reading them aloud while recording…that’s another thing and it’s not an easy task. Aside of the Dr. Seuss type of short story/rhyme I wrote, read aloud, and posted last Sunday (which is probably more geared towards children and I actually did read it to the children where I work this past week) this is only my second time recording myself. So although it may not be perfect I created the following video from a poem I wrote last year called “Butterfly Wings.”

I hope you enjoyed it. Comments welcomed and encouraged to help me learn & grow.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Cat In The Hat (My Version)

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and listen to a story by me. πŸ™‚

Yesterday was good old Dr. Seuss’s birthday! So I made my own online little rhyming book in honor of him.

This is my first attempt at making something like this where I use my voice and my own images. I found out I still have a lot to learn. The images don’t seem to view very clearly on all screens sizes. But never fear, I am sharing each story page first so you can see them clearly.

So presenting the short rhyming story…The Cat In The Hat (my version).

Sunday Pause (Paws): Breaking Records

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and break some records…

Not that kind of record, silly Cino
It’s about all of this endless snow
The most in February in history
It just won’t stop, it just won’t go

We’re already buried up to our chin
Mounds of white everywhere you turn
And yet a blizzard warning is out Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Love & Appreciation

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and for me I would like to express appreciation to all of you!

It’s Valentine’s week and Valentine’s is all about love and appreciation. So I wanted to take this time to thank all of my new followers, my old followers, and the ones who have been with me since the beginning.

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!
