Figureoutable and Critters Too

Welcome to another


and I'm also posting to City Daily Photo

I have my eye on you!

No matter what, everything is figureoutable.

"The most powerful words in the universe are the words you say to yourself." So be nice to yourself!

My sweet Dash on bunny rabbit watch!

Misty never, ever wants to have her picture taken. 

Rusty my youngest son's dog is extremely smart, he amazes me every day with just how intelligent he is!

We are everything. What matters is what you grasp. If you have heart. You can do anything. 


It's a look like this that makes me wonder what is she thinking?

Another incredibly intelligent, kind and caring pup is Artemis my daughter's dog which I post almost as much as Rusty! Well, they love having their photo taken! 

"The poet, the painter, the sculptor, the musician, the architect, seek each to concentrate this radiance of the world on one point, and each in his several work to satisy the love of beauty which stimulates him to produce."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

So, they bring me to the Minnesota State Fair and what do they do? They stick me in a cage!

Somebody please tell me which way is it to the woods?

Did somebody mention Halloween is coming soon?

Yep, Halloween is soon approaching so we must get our scare-fest ready.

Sugar rush! My tummy is full of yummy Candy Corn!

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."

Antonine de Saint-Exupery

Please color me happy to see you!

Love Grows by Giving

The only love we give away is the only love we keep.

The only way to retain love is to give it away.

Elbert Hubbard 

"Nearly two decades later, I can say that the only thing that allowed me to take that leap was because a deeper wiser part of me believed that somehow I'd be able to figure it out."

Marie Forleo


Remember summer is waning, school begins soon and goodness working for retail we're already putting Halloween to life! So, grab every precious moment of nature and togetherness that you can! 

Thanks for spending time with me and your delightful comments brighten my day. 

Take good care of you.

Live Intentionally With Critters

 Welcome to another


Let yourself get swept away with the love of critters!

"Intelligence without ambition

 is a bird without wings."

Salvadore Dali


 post and shouting out to my City Daily Photo friends.

My sweet Dash enjoying the sunlight.

Live with Intention

Dare. Listen. Learn. Laugh. Play.  

My Misty is probably secretly counting the days until she can eat falling snowflakes, although I believe our extremely hot days are nearing an end. Maybe.

It's not just about being inspired, but how many you are able to inspire.

I don't believe it's just about having dogs or cats in your life, any living critter or creature for that matter will undoubtedly teach you, reach you, show you and most of all please you in an abundance of ways.

Furnish your life with those things that inspire and delight you.

My daughter and one of her pups, Artemis.

That same daughter's daughter and charming and delightfully smart Artemis again. 

What did the mama Racoon say to her cub? "It's garbage night so I'm taking you out for our dinner."

"Favorite Quotations.

I speak my mind because it hurts to bite my tongue.

The worth of a book is measured by what you carry away from it.

It's not over till it's over.

Imagination is everything.

All life is an experiment.

What a caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly." Pat Frayne 

"Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing."

Salvador Dali

Sweet daydreaming Rusty!

"Give me two hours a day of activity, and I'll take the other twenty-two in dreams."

Salvador Dali


Thanks for stopping by and gifting me with your comments.

Enjoy your weekend and take good care of you.

Theme Day at City Daily Photo

Hello, City Daily Photo friends it's the beginning of the month of August and our theme is 'Wood' and follow this link at City Daily Photo for other wood posts.

Our theme for August is Wood!

Wood, we'd be in a world of trouble without wood in our lives.

Have you ever played with a wood pile?

Gold is more precious than wood, it is true. But you cannot and will not cook with or write on gold, you cook with 'wood' and write on wood.
Just because one seems to have superior value does not render others useless. A forest full of trees is as important as a gold mine.
Paul Bamikole

We build giant chairs for fun.

We sit on wooden benches nearly everywhere we go.

Artsy wood stuff hangs from trees in Hastings, Minnesota.

Designed and built especially for Gnomes. 

We walk on wood.


Sit on it.

Carve it and sometimes,
Drill holes in it while designing arts and crafts.

Can you see the natural face design in this piece?

"To dwellers in a wood, almost every species of tree has its voice as well as its feature."  Thomas Hardy

Just imagine the table or chair or anything else for that matter that may come from this piece above. 

This last weekend I went to Pioneer Village and the Little Log House, and this is where they had a woodsman doing various wood presentations.

An axe, wood to split, and a determination to keep warm is enough to keep any fire burning. Craig D. Lounsbrough

Wood if you stop to think of it, has been man's best friend in the world. It held him in his cradle, went to war as the gunstock in his hand, was the frame of the bed he came to rejoicing, the log upon his hearth when he was cold, and will make him his last long home.  It was the murmuring bough above his childhood play, and the roof over the first house he called his own. It is the page he is reading at this moment; it is the forest where he seeks sanctuary from a stony world. 
Donald Culross Peattie

Thanks for visiting and if you play along and join in on our wood theme. I'll be checking in with your posts as well.
Take good care of you.
