Sunday Pause (Paws): Down Time

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some down time.

I did just that yesterday. Me and a couple of friends got together yesterday and spent the entire day baking cookies. I don’t know if you can actually call this “down time”, it’s a lot of work. But it’s the fun of not worrying about anything else but making delicious treats, having great conversation, a great meal, and a few laughs.

I am posting today’s post later this morning than I usually do because Continue reading

Winter Is Here

We have had the nicest weather. Autumn has been gorgeous, the temperature has remained warm and comfortable for this time of year, in fact yesterday it was in the 50’s, and there has been no sign of snow. All of that changed today.

It was only in the 20’s for a high today and “feels like” -5 degrees with the windchill. Brrr!!!

It’s  Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and wait.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Things You Enjoy

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the things you enjoy doing.

I enjoy writing poetry and a more recently discovered passion of photography. Not even the photography as much as the editing and fun you can have with one single photo.

Below is an image I had fun creating to go along with a poem I found on Facebook. (Note: I contacted the author of the poem and she knows I am using it)

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Little Things

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the little things.

What are “the little things?” They are having a cup of tea, talking to a friend on the phone, spending time with your pet, lighting & enjoying a scented candle…wait a minute. These are not little things at all, rather they are the big things.
