Heidi is feeling much more comfortable, as you can see. Her training continues. She’s now potty trained too. I also have her walking on leash and for the most part, it’s loose leash, and consistently well behaved. Plus she has learned to really love play, especially with her ball. She’s pretty lucky she ended up living with us.
I need to take another video to show you how well she’s doing with some of her training. But no promises how soon that may be.
Before I carry on with this post I wish to thank all of you who left such lovely comments on my previous post — it was wonderful reading about your own thoughts on cinnamon toast or simply cinnamon. Thank you all!
Have you ever wondered How the oceans got their names! I love learning about things like this — why on earth don’t they teach this in school? I would have been much more interested I’m sure. Remaining with the nautical theme, find out the origins of SOS and Mayday.
Noticing Six Things A Day. I read about this some time ago and I feel badly that I don’t recall whose blog had mentioned it — if it’s you or you know who mentioned it, please let me know so I may provide the proper credit for this concept. Now on to the topic. Let me share with you my list from only one day this past week:
- tides appear to be breathing as they ebb and flow along the shoreline, often with a whisper if you listen closely;
- mares tails in the early morning sky;
- Heidi’s eyes full of expression especially when trying to engage me in some play;
- while reading before bed beside an open window, the distress call over and over from a Blue Heron, slowly painfully fading …
- spiders building webs in multitudes;
- looking closely at the individual leaves on trees as they’re now turning colour, many appear to have blood in their veins
Okay, now for something utterly uplifting. You need to hear this video. A friend of mine lost her brother recently. As you can imagine, it was incredibly difficult and another friend of hers shared this song with her on Facebook — what a perfect way to add some cheer or hope to someone whose heart is broken. But it’s for those of us who are also in perfectly positive minds too. It had me dancing in my jammies.
So my dear friends, until next Monday may your week be full of wonder and “It’s Gonna Be Okay.”
So tell me one simple thing you observed this week.
