Haiku Moment: second breakfast bath

second breakfast bath;

after canned dish, free range mouse,

and dry food chaser

That’s our girl, Monet. First breakfast is half a can of Fancy Feast. After, she heads out to roam the pasture for a second breakfast on the hoof, er, paw. Next she takes a quick bath and chomps a few crunchy bits of dry food (to wash it all down?) and she is good for the morning.

Pardon the irreverent pose. She IS taking a bath . . .

We’ve decided to make hiking the Cowiche Canyon an annual event. We hiked it last January 1st and made a return trip today. It’s becoming very popular!

May the Lord bless you and your family in this new year of a new decade.

I might be slow, but I finally figured out why all the New Year’s Eve parties were 20s themed. May your 2020 be filled with roaring good fun and great health!

Haiku Moment: remember summer

DSC_1232

winter winds blow brisk

dark skies strip warmth, steal hope, joy;

remember summer

 

hold tight, my dear ones

bundle and cocoon yourself,

summer will return

Haiku Moment: fire

blaze of summer’s last

fling; scarlet burns in sunlight

leaves aflame with light
