No More Pain


  • It is not too easy to focus on gratitude but we are trying. We are grateful for the ten loving years our miniature poodle, Snowball gave us.
  • His pain from a deadly attack of a loose Pitbull ended. He is now pain-free.
  • We are grateful for animal control staff assistance.
  • We are grateful for the pictures reminding us of many years of happiness with a loving dog who loved daily walks up to his last day.
  • We are grateful that none of us humans were physically hurt.


  • Switching gears, I am grateful for my grandchildren who plays with me outdoors, snow or sunshine.
  • I am grateful for takeouts, and in a way, I help the restaurants still have a little business.
  • I am grateful for reusable personal protective equipment at work to use in isolation rooms in the hospital.
  • I am happy to report that over 180 COVID-19 patients were discharged out of my hospital since March. Some are even publicized in the news happy and back with their families.

  1. Very sorry for your loss. It is a truly awful equation, the pain we feel at the loss of their unconditional love is directly proportional to the good they have added to our lives.

  3. Oh, how terrifying. I am so sorry!
    I remember the time a dog (not a pitbull) attacked our dog when I was walking him on a leash. It was scary. Neither our dog nor the dog who attacked were breeds known for attacking humans or other animals.
    I am glad you have the protective gear you need at work and that there are COVID-19 patients able to return home.

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.
