Critters and Humans for this Saturday

 Welcome to another

"Joy is your heart's housekeeper."

Gayle Wray

Hello everyone from Artemis, my daughter's dog after a bit of, running about the lake and rolling in the grass!
I'm excited to see her again as I'll be heading to Alabama next week for a visit, and I'll meet their newest member of the dog family, Athena!

Athena on her first birthday! 

If you can wear a crown, always wear crown.

"Sometimes, to be yourself you will have to forget yourself and become something else. Your character is not a fixed thing. You will sometimes have to move to keep up with it." 

 Matt Haig

"Obey your head. Obey your heart. Obey your gut. In fact, obey everything except commands. (Not entirely true for dogs, as most pups are all about commands.)

"With joy in every task and whimsy in our hearts, we are the Dollmakers, it is who we are."

Gayle Wray

and it's not about dolls only, it's whatever whimsical creature or critter that uplifts our human spirit in immeasurable ways.

"I felt the beautiful melancholy of being human, captured perfectly in the setting of a sun. Because, as with a sunset, to be human was to be in-between things; a day, bursting with desperate color as it headed irreversibly towards night."

Matt Haig

Critters romping and children reading, life is good.

"You don't have to be an academic. You don't have to be anything. Don't force it. Feel it. Feel your way, and don't stop feeling your way until something fits. Maybe nothing will. Maybe you are a road, not a destination. That is fine. Be a road. But make sure it's one with something to look at out of the window."

Matt Haig 

What once was a bouncing ball is now history in the making of Rusty's demolished chew toys!

"A dog might feel as majestic as a lion, might bark as loud as a roar, might have a heart as mighty and brave as a Lion's heart, but at the end of the day, a dog is a dog and lion is a lion." 

Charlyn Khater


"No matter how few possessions you own or how little money you have, loving wildlife and nature will make you rich beyond measure."

Paul Oxton

Thanks for stopping your visits brighten my day.

Take good care of you.

Sometimes when you facetime with your grand daughter you never know what she might share to brighten your day.

Life Rafts and Critters That Delight

 Welcome everyone to another 


I'm also posting to City Daily Photo

Honest seeing - through the eyes of your dog,

or another beloved critter.


Or perhaps a witty Scarecrow.

How I know it's going to be a marvelous day,

 is always determined by what feeds my mind.

Your thoughts are everything.

"Nothing is stronger than a small hope that doesn't give up" Matt Haig 
and I add, the bond between you and your beloved critters.

It's all about unconditional love. No judging. It ensures emotional health for all. 

Hello from my daughter's dog, Athena.

Of course, human beings are important but what gives you joy and endless caring in your life? Think about it.


"Believe the incredible, and you can do the impossible."

Bishop Fulton J. Sheen


"Just as dogs were thwarted wolves, parks were thwarted forests. Human loved both, possibly because humans were, well, thwarted."

Matt Haig

"We are beautiful beings." 

Lailah Gifty Akita

"Your opinions about me does not change who I am."
Lailah Gifty Akita 

Advice for humans.
Our critters live this way.

"Do not fall for categories. Everyone is everything. Every ingredient inside a star is inside you,
 and every personality that ever existed competes in the theatre of your mind for the main role."
Matt Haig

"The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts."

Marcus Aurelius 

"If you think something is ugly, look harder. Ugliness is just a failure of seeing."
Matt Haig

"No one will understand you. It is not, ultimately, that important. What is important is that you understand you."
Matt Haig

"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars and see yourself running with them."
Marcus Aurelius

Never underestimate the power of reading.

Always, carry a bag of happy moments with you.

Don't forget for those of us that acknowledge Daylight Savings Time we set our clocks back at 2 am or earlier tonight if you go to bed before that. 

Thanks for you visit and comments 
and may sunshine and happiness follow you everywhere you go.

Take good care of you.
