Sunday Pause (Paws): A Tale Of Caution

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

The weather is changing where I live. Winter is here! I am really nervous about driving in it. I am used to driving only blocks to get to work and most other places. Now that we have moved I have a commute. Because of the weather and traffic I decided to get snow tires for the first time ever. I am hoping that will make a difference. The season has barely begun and there has already been treacherous driving conditions and many accidents. It made for an idea for a post today so I have a little rhyme for you. I hope you enjoy!

A WORD OF CAUTION

The alarm clock rings
The birds outside sing
You jump out of bed
Need to get everyone fed

No time to make a meal
Jump in car hands on wheel
McDonalds is on the way
Gotta get on with the day

Let me give you a word of caution
Things happen when you’re not careful & watching
And the crew is not ready for the disorder
From this kind of drive through food order

Sunday Pause (Paws): Breaking Records

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and break some records…

Not that kind of record, silly Cino
It’s about all of this endless snow
The most in February in history
It just won’t stop, it just won’t go

We’re already buried up to our chin
Mounds of white everywhere you turn
And yet a blizzard warning is out Continue reading

If You See It, Don’t Ignore It

With this week’s insanely cold temperatures I worried every day & night about any animals out there. I can’t stand the thought of a dog hooked to a chain, a bunny stuck in a cage, or cat being left outside to endure the temperatures when there is a warm house feet away. When people choose to leave their pets outside during these dangerous temperatures, let’s face it, the animal’s life is at stake.

If you see this…do something.

The New Year Is Here

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.

Beginning Of A New Season

We’ve had two days of light snow and very cold weather. Between the snow and cold temperatures it has been very slippery on the roads and sidewalks. Even though I am not a huge fan of summer, it’s way too soon for this. It’s only the first week of November!

Anyway, since it can’t be stopped, during this change of season let’s not forget our pets.

How about your area? Any snowfall or cold temperatures?
