Wunnerful Wednesday

A full day of walking the puppy in the snow and being a domestic goddess.
Watching that pup frolic in snow up to her shoulders had me laughing and experiencing that moment of clarity about living in the present. It's how animals live all the time, and we could do well to learn a few things from them. She has to be on the leash every time she goes out, because otherwise she's running a hundred miles per hour. She's supposed to be on bedrest, but I kjeep taking her out to go potty. I have puppy pads in here for her, and she uses them sometimes, but she acts like she's done something wrong every time. lol We had her housebroken for probably 2 months before she got hit. So I'm sure she is having a hard time peeing in the house again--pad or no pad. Bless her little heart...

I made a lovely lentil soup for supper. Put it in the crockpot and it cooked up like a charm. I had some leftover bbq'd country ribs from the other night, so I cubed them and threw them in, along with some other stuff. Made a loaf of bread, too. It was a good hearty supper for a cold winter evening. Not a lot of leftovers, but some, enough to put a small bowl into hubby's lunch for tomorrow with a peanut butter sandwich. That'll hold him over til supper.

I was in my pantry searching for something today when I noticed that the latest stray cat that adopted us, Muffin, seems to have built a little nest in there. She was so starving and scrawny when she came and I thought she was just fattening up. Now I suspect she's pregnant. Ai yi yi...we do not need kittens.

Anyway, I was looking around at all the good wholesome food in there, and I realized that I really do have a lot to be grateful for these days. Without exagerrating, I'll bet there are a hundred meals in there. Is this over the top ??????

I am blessed to be well fed. I am blessed to be educated in more ways than one. I am blessed to be a child of the Universe.

Today's blessings number in the tens. How do I pass it around? How do I share the bounty and prosperity?

Life is a banquet...


Namaste.

Annie K...HA! ONE way you share is by inviting everyone who is able, to come to your town (and your house) June 12-13-14, to eat, talk, eat, talk, crash a few meetings, also HAVE a few meetings!

What a WONDERFUL way to spread your own blessings among us, some of whom ARE anxious to meet you and others!

BTW, could you send (or maybe publish? -grin) the names or phone numbers of the motels you were describing? Thank you. REALLY!
