What Do You Do...

... when it rains...

enough for walks to be cancelled

Stuck indoor

Bored Jumbo on her back

Keep your trunk up, Jumbo.
I'll take you for a walk in the woods
What do you mean they are just furniture?
They are made of wood and cane, aren't they?

Done with the walk. What's next?

Hey LS, can we make paper boats with that?

So what do you do when it rains?

Thankful Thursday


Does it sound crazy to say that I'm thankful for a break of monotony of the smell in my house? On normal days the place smell mostly of cleaning agents, vinegar and dettol. No, I'm not living in a hospital LOL. But I do live with a dog.

Recently I attempted to bake a cake. I was really relieved that I didn't produce some blocks of unidentified and inedible objects. The cake wasn't much to shout about but the smell of baking was something else!

You know how certain scents evoke certain memories... The smell of baking cake wafting in the air brought me back momentary in time to those happy moments of my childhood. The times we used to gather around in the kitchen, talking and laughing as we watch mom bake. Although moments like this were long gone, but the memories are enough to warm my heart all over again. I'm thankful for God's gift of our sense of smell.

A Happy Dog on Thursday:

I'm thankful for my sense of smell too. The nose knows... To a dog, the whole world is a smell! It updates us constantly on all that is happening around us, alerts us to the presence of food (very important), help check peemails, acts as GPS...the list is quite endless, isn't it?

Don't worry LS, we're not lost.

Just give me a sec to consult my GPS

Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers now!

What are you thankful for?

Do You Think We Sleep Better...

...when surrounded by our best buddies?

Recently we received an award from Ellen, Au & Target. A belated thank you and apology from us for taking ages to post it.

There's a To-Do List that comes with it.

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award

Thank you Ellen, Au & Target!

2. Share 7 things about yourself

We were told from Au and Target that this has to be about the human. Over to you, LS.

1. I find myself remembering names of dogs better than humans nowadays. Do you think I need help?
2. I'm a morning person. My energy level goes down in tandem with the setting of the sun.
3. I enjoy gardening. When I'm not too busy grieving over their death.
4. I'm a flop in the culinary department. My mom's pained look is enough to attest to it LOL.
5. I love people with a great sense of humour.
6. I love skywatching.
I hate loud noises especially screaming kids (I'm with you here, Ellen)

3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
