Last year it was tolerance, sometimes I really wanted to deck someone that hurt my feeling but than thought it over, you know that count to ten backwards stress relieving process. But I think just the thought of decking someone might have not been any better. Oh well, but as a human I find the challenge a continuing hill to climb.
So today I took out my moral compass and sat down to do a little soul searching. In a moment of pure silence it came to me. I have pulled out this soap box so often that people knew it was coming and ran. I love this word...RESPECT.
I realize respect covers all things. Think Green, respect for our planet that God gave us, respect family and friends and they will be kinder to you, and respect what I have, not to replace because I am tired of it but because it is truly wore out.
Come back next year to see how I did. You may say this is a high standard to set my goal at, but as I see it, if I try and fail, at least I tried but if I succeed, wow, I will than influence others to try the same.
Happy Birthday to ME.

The hardest part is in the grocery store. At the end of the isle that's where the candy for any holiday is displayed. I find myself running my hand over the bright colors of the Peeps, yellow and pink. I think to myself, Carol step away from the Peeps. As my hands slide off the Peeps and my fingers ease off the pressure that usually take the product and places it in my cart I feel great. I do have to take one more trip past those sugar wonders. Once again I have made it to the cashier, pay my bill and head out of the door. I however, look back and wink, I will be back for the Peeps after Easter.

I know it seems impossible for a dog to second guess her humans. But Timber does that on a regular basis. In the winter she will consider a cuddle with me, but when spring comes she has little time for us. Often when she is laying on the rug and John and I call to her she looks annoyed. I think she is saying to herself....it sure takes a lot of work to keep these two happy.
But one thing we know is that she loves us. Otherwise she would get tired of the hugs, and all the attention we demand. Her agility is slipping and she gets off the floor a little slower, she sleeps harder these days not unlike here humans.
Her favorite thing in the world is a riding. She would rather be in her vehicle than anywhere else. I know if you could ask her what she loves. We would come in second after a good road trip. It is good to come home to a wag of the tail, and a smile, yes a smile. She has unconditional love even when she feels she has better things to do.

I designed a card that give the first born a little notification that the parents know how hard it was. Now some of those children have children themselves and will understand the card and the thought even more. I hope you like it.

Boy does that feel good. Well, that is all I have to say. Now as most of you, I have to go to work. Wish I had a good picture to add to this but you probably wouldn't appreciate my facial expressions this morning.
God Bless my readers.

But no....it started to snow, and yet here I was still denying it. Let me tell you, it not only snowed, it snow stormed and the temps dropped. Got up to five below, and at least 10 inches of snow. Here is a picture of our steps going up to our deck, they are right outside my drawing room and I don't like the looks.
The weather will stay the same for two days, they say warm weather is coming. Yah right...it sure doesn't look like it. My mind doesn't think think this way, snow up to your nose and melting tomorrow. Fine, I will put a blog up when 10 more inches of snow melt. I just want sun, tulips, and buds on the trees. The spring shell come. Ok, this is enough bad news for the day. I am so cranky today.
God Bless to my readers.
