One of the things I have always found very relaxing and enjoyable is a Word Search puzzle. I am pretty good and can get them done pretty quickly. There have even been times when myself and someone else competed to see who could find all the words first. I think I won every time. 🙂
Well I created my very first Word Search and I am sharing it today. It is not an online interactive one except for you may be able to do so with the PDF version. I have a link for that below. Otherwise you will need to print it out or save the image and use a drawing app or something. I suppose there is always the option of just finding the words while having the puzzle open on your screen and just not marking them.
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax. We can take a break but must never stop.
This past week I was in a conversation with a coworker about why I do animal advocating. I don’t even remember how we got on the topic. I just remember telling her about a video on animal experimentation I watched many years ago. I won’t get into the details but I will say that when I told her one thing I saw them do to a dog she was horrified and said “What?! Why would they do that?!” My response…..”EXACTLY!”
Whatever it is you feel is wrong in the world, stand up, be courageous, and make a change.
It’s been very chilly and gloomy lately here. It’s hard to be motivated and, once again, I was drawing a blank in creating a post for today. I don’t always have something to say. Luckily sometimes nature speaks for itself. I saw a bunch of birds flying around the trees and wooded area outside my home. They were chirping away and seemed to be playing…flying from one tree to another, then flying around some more, and again, landing on a tree or the grass. It was so fun to watch. I was trying to get a picture but it was NOT easy. Somehow I managed to get the picture of the bird below about to take off. It isn’t the best quality because it was a very tiny bird, a cloudy day, and I had to zoom way in. But I still was very happy to have gotten it. I actually didn’t even know I had captured it. I didn’t see the bird open its wings when I was snapping the pictures. It was when I was reviewing the images on my camera that I saw it. It was a pleasant surprise.
Fall is my favorite season. It’s just too short! I know any time now all the leaves will be completely turned and off the trees. Not only that but the weather is going to get very chilly before we know it.
So I’ll take the lesson from Cino and take it easy and enjoy the warmth of the sun and the beautiful colors while I can. Pets are such great examples of slowing down and enjoying every moment.
Today we’re doing just that. We’re meeting a friend at a park. I hope to get some pics of the leaves and trees. What are your plans?
The most beautiful time of the year Autumn is once again here Take a walk and enjoy the changing trees Under your feet hear the crunch of the leaves Feel the warm sun among the cool breeze Soak it in because soon comes the time to freeze

The definition of the word “time” when used as a verb is plan, schedule, or arrange when (something) should happen or be done. Obviously we need to go by time to be at work, meetings, appointments, events and so on. But today I am looking at the words “when things should happen.”
I was looking through some old piles of papers, notes, cards, etc. in my office and came across some of the cards I received when my sister suddenly passed away a few years back. For quite a while I couldn’t look at old pictures of her or see her name come up in a Facebook memory without breaking down and crying. While it still makes me sad, and sometimes I still can’t believe it’s real that she is actually gone, time has begun to heal my heart.
Speaking of my office, it is still a mess. I haven’t done anything in there for a few months or more. But this weekend I decided to try to weed through some more of it. I am taking my time with getting it in order and decorated because I don’t want to rush and just throw things in closets or just anywhere. I want to throw away whatever I can or bring items to Goodwill that I no longer will use. I want it to be somewhat organized so I can utilize things better and have the room and space for plans that I would like to bring to pass for my blog and animal advocacy. Continue reading →
All we have to do is look around to see that the world is in chaos. I don’t see how this will change things.
There is so much going on and yes, there is some good in there, but the bad and the ugly really seems to be coming out.
We’re battling a pandemic, there is looting and violence going on everywhere, and it’s election year.
Some say the pandemic is a hoax. Some are against wearing a mask. The truth is nobody likes wearing a mask. But if there is even a minuscule chance that wearing one will save someone else’s life (or your own), shouldn’t that be enough?
When it comes to elections I would be curious to see how many people actually learn the facts, views, and plans on both sides before they start criticizing the other candidate, the candidate supporters, and before they actually cast their vote. I suspect there are many people who focus in on one thing they are angry about or just listen to what others are saying without finding out the facts and making their own decisions. Elections in themselves never bring out the good in people. This is when you can see people at their ugliest. Everyone is so passionate about their beliefs which there is nothing wrong with. What is wrong is when people become so blatantly cruel toward those who do not believe the same as they do.
Who out there likes food? Just kidding. I think it’s safe to say we all do. Some of us like it a bit too much. 😁 But what kind of food we like is different.
I am a vegetarian and may some day be vegan. I have never been a big fan of meat, it always bothered me that I was eating an animal. About 5 years or so ago I decided I couldn’t do it anymore. I can’t eat what I advocate for. I always thought if I fought for humane treatment of farm animals that was good enough. But it’s not. I don’t believe we were meant to eat them and that we do and consider it “normal” is just part of the fallen world.
I am not trying to make any of you feel guilty. But I do hope you give some thought to it. There are many plant based and dairy free foods out there that are very delicious and that you can have a lot of fun with.
Today I wanted to share what I just recently discovered…the White Castle Impossible Slider, oh my….yum!
I haven’t eaten a White Castle in forever. But after trying this, I’ll be a more regular guest.
Have you tried it? Or any food with Impossible meat? If not, I challenge you! You’ll love it!
