It’s Sunday! A great day to just hang out and get refreshed and recharged.
I‘ve had some time off this past week. It was time for Cino’s annual exam which is always a bit stressful. She, of course, doesn’t like it, and that makes it stressful for us too. We had to do curbside for the first time ever. It was weird but went just fine. We have an awesome vet! You can really see & feel that he genuinely cares about his patients and their parents. Believe me, I don’t say that lightly and wouldn’t say it unless I truly believed and felt it. It actually took at least a few years after bringing her there and getting to know them before I was able to see this was a good place with an incredible vet. My advice is to always do your research and choose wisely who you bring your pets to.
Cino got a clean bill of health and with that done I spent some time cleaning and organizing the office. It is hard to believe that one day I won’t have a bunch of junk sitting around the office. It’s the room things have gone in, since we moved here, that we are unsure of what to do with. Some things will go to Good Will and some things just need a storage spot. I have no idea how all of this stuff fit in the last place which was quite a bit smaller and yet here with a bigger space I can’t find a spot. 🙂 OK, so part of it is that I got really good at utilizing every nook & cranny at the old place. But here, I don’t want a bunch of packed to the brim closets where you can’t get at anything so I have been trying to slowly go through things and keep closets, and everywhere, as clutter free as possible. We sure do accumulate a lot of “stuff” don’t we?
Well today we are going to just hang around like my cousin’s cat is literally doing in the picture below. 🙂
Whatever you do today, I hope it’s a great day. Happy Sunday!
Finally! I was finally able to finish the video I was working on two weeks ago when I ran into all kinds of software/computer trouble. It so happens that today is Cat World Domination Day! So it worked out ok because what a perfect day to share it. 🐱
I put the video together in honor of a cat that was beaten on live video. Continue reading →
Over this past week my friend’s dog, Dakota, celebrated his 15th birthday while someone at work had to say goodbye to their dog, Niko. This got me thinking about how important it is that we see how all life matters. Dakota is not just a dog, but a part of my friend’s family and worthy to be celebrated! Niko was not just a dog, but a part of my co-worker’s family and worthy of a time of mourning and remembrance.
I wrote the following poem thinking about these two precious lives. Photos are included of each of them. (Dakota’s mom is a professional photographer).
A pet is not just a pet But one of the best friends you’ll ever get Your comforter, therapist, friend, & baby A pet is so many things including family
They are worthy to be celebrated in a big way To throw a huge party for on their birthday Decorations, friends, photos, and cake These are special memories that we make
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!
Things will be busy for the next few days for me as I am sure they will be for you. That’s why I am dedicating this Sunday’s post to wishing you a Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy the photo and here is a poem I wrote. Continue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and be thankful for friends.
We all have our highs and our lows in life. If you read my post from last Sunday then you know I’m kind of at a low right now. But during this low I’ve been feeling love & support around me from some people that I didn’t even know cared. I don’t know where I’d be without them. I wrote the following poem as an outlet for what I’ve been going through and to express gratitude for the support.
WITH THE HELP OF YOUR FRIENDS
It’s an emotional journey This thing called life Sometimes filled with peace
And sometimes filled with strife
Chaos everywhere you turn The world is not in a good place Sometimes making it hard To deal with challenges you face
Emotions are building up You’ve kept them bottled up too long You’re brought down to your knees Trying to figure out what’s going wrongContinue reading →
