Making the Most and Critters

Welcome to


and I'm posting to City Daily Photo

Fill your days with what makes you joyful.

 It is always the simple that produces the marvelous.

"Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it. Sauté' it. Whatever. Make.

Joss Whedon

Let your tongue hang proudly!

"Creating means living."

Dejan Stojanovic

My granddaughter loves play and exercise time with the pups!

"How you make others feel, says a lot about who you are.

"The thing about a hero, is even when it doesn't look like there's a light at the end of the tunnel, he's going to keep digging, he's going to keep trying to right and make up for what's gone before, just because that's who he is."

Joss Whedon

"Passion. It lies in all of us. sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us, guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love, the clarity of hatred, the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms shattered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead." 

Joss Whedon

When you know something is right you will feel it in your bones.

Doing good to others is not a duty. It is a joy for it increases your own health and happiness. 

So many projects making after school snack bags, activity bags for cancer patients, placemats for Meals on Wheels, cards for the homeless, Fleece blankets for kids, diabetes hypoglycemia kits, Save the Bees" seed balls, birdhouses, dog and cat toys.

My granddaughter joined the event too.

Unbelievable number of toys for rescue dogs and cats. Lots of scraps leftover from making tie blankets. Everything has its use!

"Create. Not for the money. Not for the fame. Not for the recognition. But for the pure joy of creating something and sharing it."

Ernest Barbaric

Introducing several communities to a day in the life of Lions.

"Life will throw so many trials your way, but never let them distract you from your goal, for you are destined for phenomenal greatness."

This was a hands-on messy event but so worthy!

Promis me you will always remember, you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

Much wisdom and beautiful photos in this post. I do love the kitty in the basket, but I am a bit prejudice.
