Friday In The Woods

Jodie Belle has been with us for a whole year as of January 1st.

~  ~ ~

It's another Friday in the woods.
The week was busy for me.
Appointments, phone calls and paperwork.
A few minor mini break downs
but I made it through
like I always do.

The sun peaked out a bit.
The Purr Gang loved it.
Sat in whatever spot they could find.
The Fur Gang played out back.
Rolling and smiling at me.
Yes, my rule is 40 degrees
and my girls know it.
So, out I go,
standing in that one sunny spot
with my blue sweater
and my coffee or tea in hand.
I do check to make sure it is 40
though and when they are
playing and not looking,
I go inside.
Soon there will be two faces at my door
reminding me that I went in.
Those two keep me busy.

Weekend plans are to go to the beach.
Mr. Boatman has to check on things.
Me, I'll just enjoy the views.
Maybe I'll go for a walk.
That is if the tide is out.
Sometimes I go there and it's a big lake.
Other times, I can enjoy looking for shells.

Next week is quite busy with
appointments and tests
and do this and that before my surgery.

It's not til the week after that
but they sure want to remind me
and take every test they can think of.

A weekend of no rain.
A maybe walk on the beach.
With two dogs sniffing everything.
Tea or coffee with a view.
No one reminding me of my nasty stupid kidney.
Not a bad weekend at all.

I hope you enjoy
dance, sing,
and most of all
have the time of your life.

That is such a great photo of Jodie Belle! Have a calm and relaxing weekend!

Kea said...

A year already? Seems like only a handful of months since she came to live with you. :-)

Wishing you a weekend filled with small Joys.

Blessings and Light.

I love what Kea said..I echo that. I haven't been here because being a caregiver is a very very time consuming job. More than I ever knew. But he will do better and better as time passes.

I am thinking of you. xox

Hi JC!
I like the picture of your dog a I smiled reading about two faces at your door...
It sounds so casual 'go to the beach'... So many people would love to do that... It's wonderful to have a beach close to your house.
All the best to you!

I am fostering my daughter's cat. I have noticed you have quite the bunch. Their behavior is so different from dogs. I have much to learn. Enjoy your walk with your adorable dog!

Sounds like a good plan for the weekend xxx

Judy said...

I hope you find some great shells and beach glass, and that the girls have a good run!!
I checked the price for this bear, and it is "only" $8.50! I would have thought she cost more than that new!! And she was only playing in the snow for 15 minutes, then I brought her in and blew all the snowflakes off...

A belated Happy Gotcha Day, Jodie Belle. You sure look happy :)

hi dear, 'two faces at the door'... we know what that feels like... always lovely to hear from you, and of course to come across to your place... love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
