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?

  2. Wonderful lyrics, sensitive thoughts expressed! As a "happy therapy" as you mention above, I think that photography is a pleasant way to find some happiness/positivity... Greetings and Have a great day and weekend!

Birthday Month

Here are some random photos I picked From my collection that makes me think The smiles and laughs shared With the people who care I share my birthday month with some loved ones Some close, some far With distance or heart In my thoughts they are present Sometimes that's all that matter The experience, tastes, and feelings matter too Simple things like easter bombs "cocoa" A manicure with massage And more sweet happy birthday cakes A workout in different virtual destinations I cannot go there for real but virtually I can New Zealand, Spain, the Pacific Islands All in one day Imagined or virtual They can bring joy

Easter 2021

It's that season again when the breeze is warm enough To go out in nature And the hike is not so rough The ground is dry enough The rock's not so slippery As we climbed the trails above Not so muddy but rocky There's not much greenery But a hint of good scenery With young growth below, yet premature Give a hope that reassures Then Easter Day we were looking forward to Came by and flew through A few weeks of preparation With our three generations Putting up decorations Getting gifts all ready Making food for everybody Some are healthy, some . . . just yummy The egg hunting that used to be for our children Some many years ago  are now enjoyed by our grandkids Who reminds us of those early years The happy birthday days of festivities The joy from those activities Makes me grateful for simple things  That has not changed Spending time, playing, and eating together Can bring joy altogether

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
