Pups

I saw the cutest thing today. Fern, one of the neighbor's new pups was out romping in their yard. She waddled up to the pen entrance and starting yipping. Nick went to let her in, which was strange because usually they are begging to come out. But before he could let her in, she pushed the gate open and let herself in. She went straight to her water dish and then promptly found her bed and took a nap. It was so cute!

Rouser is also protective of his sister. I was holding him and giving him some scratches when he whined to be let down. When I put him back in his pen, he ran to the barrel they sleep in and peeked in on Fern. Then he plopped down outside the barrel and took a nap.

That reminds me, I miss the sound of beagles hot on the trail of a bunny! And I miss the taste of fried rabbit in the frying pan.

Life is for living

I'm signed up to receive daily quotes from a website about living life fully. Something Nick and I have been talking about. That life is for living.

It sounds so basic and simple but something I have not really given much thought about until recently. Life...is...for...LIVING!!!

It's not about being in fear, worry, distrust, anger, unrest, unhappiness. It's for simply living.

I started making a list, titled, (can you guess?)  Life is for Living and on this list I write out either things I want to do or things I want to buy for the sole purpose of enjoyment.


Too many times I don't do something because of my wrong mindset. And I think again, to the simple phrase "Life is for living".

Once you get that thought into your head, your whole world changes! If you read it and think, "Yeah, I know, life is for living, but I've got to be practical. What if...?", then you haven't let those words really hit you yet. Because once you do. Once you really let it sink its way deep inside, nothing is the same again!

And that's right where I'm at. Living every day, every moment in the moment. Not worrying about something even five minutes down the road, not playing the "what if" game because that alone can suck life's energy right out of you!

Each day is a gift. Live in it now.

Live life fully.

I know it's been awhile since I last posted.

I had a big allergy attack a few weeks ago which left me feeling weak. So, I spent the week in bed resting and recuperating. The crazy weather here sure is strange! One day it's cold and windy and the next day hot and stuffy.

Then after that was over, we got the news about Nick's grandfather being in the hospital. The family all came to say their goodbye's.  He passed away on Sunday.

His death has made me think about how short our life is. How we never know when our time will be up. And to live life fully.

I bought some yarn this week but could not bring myself to start another project until I finished at least one of my current WIP's. So, ...
