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?

Sunday Pause (Paws): Helping A Family & Their Dog

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and consider extending a helping hand for a family & their dog.

I know this is a different kind of Sunday post from what I normally do but helping animals is my mission. When I read the post an old coworker had out there about her dog, Mack, I felt I had to try to help.

Her dog has been taken from her family and is currently at a boarding facility because of some incidences of him getting out of the house or yard and running up to people or other animals and scaring them. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Dream Tale

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, grab a cup of coffee and read a little story…a little dream tale.

ONCE UPON A TIME…

A princess had been working hard at her day job and on her blog at night. She was also battling a bad cold so she was extra tired when she went to bed that night. Thoughts were going this way & that way in her head and soon she was in a dream.

She heard about a horse that had ran off and his family, who lived in Canada, was very worried. There was a sighting of the horse and the word was he was last seen standing in the middle of a parking lot. The parking lot was in a strip mall in the town the princess had grew up in. She knew this area well so she drove down there to try to help.

Meanwhile the family heard where their beloved horse was so the man jumped in his car and took off to go and get him.

Back at the strip mall the horse was now standing in the parking lot frozen like a statue. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Paws, Hooves, & Feet

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come along with me to take a little closer look at a few of the animals I have featured in my banner.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For the Word “Just”

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and today I would like to take a pause and look at the phrase “just.”

A coworker was telling me a story at work the other day and at one point she said how she talks to her dog to let her know she is leaving. Then came the words “I know it’s stupid, it’s just a dog.” I don’t know about you but I am so tired of hearing people refer to animals as “just” anything. So I came up with a list of what I think they are just

Just a creation of God
Just a loyal friend
Just a family member
Just a living being
Just a comforter
Just a stress reliever
Just a joy to watch
Just a joy to play with
Just someone to come home to

Just a snuggler
Just created BEFORE humans
Just improve their “owners” health
Just teachers of responsibility

Just LOVE!

Just a joy to watch

Here is what a Facebook follower friend of mine in her own words shared with me about her beloved cat Jasmine pictured above.

Jasmine chilling on the bed with me. I wonder if other people take pleasure in watching their pets enjoy themselves? From jumping on the bed and just enjoying each other’s company to watching her sniff the air whilst sat in the garden or getting her toys out the bowl I store them in and playing with them. I’m sure they do, but it often an unspoken pleasure of pet ownership when in comes to cats. But I enjoy watching my cat just enjoy herself around the house from sunbathing to cackling at birds out the window or sniffing the breeze.
