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!

Sunday Pause (Paws): They Feel, We Feel

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and “feel.”

I‘m feeling pretty proud of the number of shares the following image I made has received so far. It is the most shared image of mine to date so I wanted to share it with you and talk a little bit about the word “feel.

All animals do feel the same as your pet. They feel pain, fear, loneliness, sadness, boredom, stress, happiness, comfort, and love (to name a few). Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Those Gifts From God

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and rap…yes I said rap! (Or just listen to a rap).

I wrote a poem not long ago
My niece said it read like a rap
She sees a new career in my future
Ehhh…I probably wouldn’t get one clap 🙂

But I do have a video of someone who can rap that I wanted to share with you. If this doesn’t show that animals are gifts from God then I don’t know what does.

Grab some Kleenex, wipe your tears, and go give your gift from above a hug.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Fun With Pics

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let the artsy fartsy side come out.

Sometimes you just never know “what you want to be when you grow up.” I still really haven’t figured it out and I should be retiring in less than 20 years. A lot of my life I feel like I was just “surviving.” I always felt lost and unsure of myself. So I made some bad choices and went down the wrong path for a while. Basically I was just trying to pay the bills, fit in, and trying to be happy. But it was when I started paying attention to God that things started changing…I started changing. I’m still a “work in progress” and will be all of my days. No one is perfect. But I’m not just trying to survive anymore. I’m trying to “live”…really truly “live.” Because it isn’t just about what we “do” to pay the bills, it’s who we are and how we live.

I still haven’t figured out “what I want to be” to pay the bills but I have discovered that I enjoy being creative. My love for animals is nothing new. I have loved them all of my life and have always tried to advocate for them. With discovering that I like being creative I can take my love for animals and my love for creating and combine them. 🙂

This week I took a photo of Cino and started playing around with it and turning it into artwork.

It’s so fun playing with images
And turning them into artwork
Editing them on your own
Or using filters can be a perk

Sunday Pause (Paws): Take It Easy

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take it easy.

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season as much as I did. It was so great to see family come home all the way from Norway to spend it with us.

I LOVE the holiday season and am always a little sad when it is over. I have been off work for a few weeks and am going back tomorrow. Like I saw on a Facebook post…I have to go back to “adulting.” Ugh. It’s always so hard that first day.

Since I am trying to feel ready for that first day back and get in a little more “take it easy” time today’s post is a short one. I captured this picture of Cino during my time off when I was playing around with my new camera (still trying to figure it out). She’s doing exactly what I will be doing right after I post this…chillin’. 🙂

Take a midday nap
With your pet on your lap
Take it easy for one day
Just enjoy your Sunday

Enjoy your day! Take it easy! Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Resolutions Are Not For Me

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come up with new year resolutions…or not.

I‘ve never been one to make resolutions. I’ve actually never been one that got that excited about New Years in general. So we change one number on checks when we write the date…wait does anybody write checks anymore? So we’ll soon be another year older…wait unless you’re birthday is at the end of the year. So we’ll have another January, February, March, April…well you get the point.

I hope you enjoy the poem I wrote for this post.

NO RESOLUTIONS ARE NOT FOR ME

One day out of three hundred sixty five
Doesn’t magically make me strive
Any day I don’t like what’s in the mirror
Means I need to kick myself in the rear Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Very Merry Christmas To You

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the holidays!

It’s hard to believe tomorrow is already Christmas Eve. Time got away from me this year that I didn’t even send out Christmas cards. I have never done that before. Since it seems too late to send any out now I made one to post & share with all of my friends, family and with all of you. The picture of Cino & I is from a photo shoot a friend did months back. As you can see Cino LOVED it!
