The Green that Makes Me Grin

miniature poodle and stuff toy
My contribution picture to OGIF orange group and Friday Greens.
I think this qualifies for the orange or green group My dog snowball's picture, the mean one but cute He positioned himself under the giraffe this one day Like something for comfort or warmth, I can't say I was moody that morning but yet I had to smile Upon seeing him so cute I could not just deny
If attention, he wanted, he got it alright As he helped me turn a dark day from gloomy to bright
Do you feel blue like me at times spending hours and hours or money to make you happy? Sometimes I waste time looking for apps, books, websites, clothes, makeup, food . . . that would make me happy. I end up buying a few things and not use it.
One day, I was down and low. It was hard to focus that I literally had to write each task I needed to do at the moment because I lose track easily and forgot what I was doing. Then I looked on my side to the living room and there was my miniature poodle, Snowball, tucked under the giraffe stuff toy's butt. I thought he was so cute I had to smile. His image reminds me to take things lightly. I cannot change a lot of things I have no control of. But smiling actually makes my tasks easier to do.
Of course, taking care of a dog is costing me too but he is (with my other dog) a very much available therapy for me. I do not have to make an appointment and dress up to leave the house. He is right there, following me everywhere even to the bathroom!
I should take more pictures like this that put a smile on my face.
What is your quick happy therapy?

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
