It was a snowy and very windy night here. A perfect night for hot cocoa, a blanket, and snuggles with Cino. We stayed in and stayed warm & safe. What did you do?

Cheers to a blessed 2019 for you and your furiends.

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.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Reminiscing

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and reminisce. Do you ever think back to when you first met your pet?

There were no special circumstances in my meeting Cino. I saw her on a Humane Society website and decided to drive over there and meet her. She was shy and aloof but after she made eye contact with me for the first time and let out a MEOW, that was it!

Things Are A-Changin

Things are a-changin!

We’re in that in between time where summer is ending and fall is approaching. I’m noticing a small amount of leaves turning. But with the rain we are getting today those leaves are already falling off the trees and onto the ground.

I don’t mind this weather at all! I will be spending the night under a blanket on the couch with some tea and an apple candle burning. Ahhh…the small things can be so comforting.

What’s the weather like where you are?
