When evening comes

It has been so hot lately that we have been going for walks in the evening. The neighborhood looks very different at this time. The air seems full of quiet secrets...
Life is so unpredictable! Change is hard, but change is good, too. If I keep breathing and doing my best, I can make it through the dark. 
I feel so tired...
 but when the light returns, it brings new gifts.
Have a bright and shiny day!

What have I left behind today?

I recently made a goal for myself to only leave happy footprints behind me. When faced with ugliness, it would be satisfying, in a way, to strike back.  Of course, the satisfaction wouldn't last very long! How happy can you be if you respond to pettiness in kind? Okay, I'm not perfect, but I am doing my best to gain a reputation of loving kindness.

I have found some unexpected things left behind by others. Here are a few of them...

 Today is a gift. Have fun with it!

Happy 3rd of July!!!

Last summer, one of my neighbours protected their impatiens from the sun every afternoon.  
That's what I call vigilance! And do you notice the chain weighing down the umbrella so that it doesn't float away? There was a part of me that wondered why they didn't plant sunflowers or zinnias in this hotspot instead, but no matter. This was their garden, and they seemed to love it, so who was I to question their choice? If you care about something or someone, you will do whatever it takes to keep them safe.

Lily and Ruby like to nap side by side. Ruby feels so safe that she sleeps belly up with her paws in the air!

She feels so safe that she can be her goofy self, even during sleep.

Protect the ones you love, and don't forget to protect yourself. Be safe and be goofy!
