SIMPLICITY IS HARD WORK

Sometimes

We just need time off. Time to be lazy, to do nothing, and just chill. Try it, you will discover, it is a good thing… love is forever, love IS.

Lunar Dog Year

Year 2018 —— Dog (earth )

Dogs are capable and knowledgeable, and it is not unusual to see Dog people in high demand in the job market.  Dogs like to work at whatever career they choose.  Prince William, Elvis, Cher, George Gershwin, Mother Teresa, were born in Dog years

As a partner Dogs are extremely loyal  although they think they know best, it is fortunate that they are usually open-minded. and will be open to advice. Generally speaking with their sensitive and compassionate heart, they do well in occupations or careers that “serve” or work in the best interest of others. ie. teachers, charity workers, doctors etc.

Unlike other Dog years the Earth Dog is less idealistic than most Dogs, the Earth element makes them practical enough they don’t lose sight of reality.

In China dogs are usually associated with justice and compassion.

We are living at a time, when the plus, positive characteristics of the Dog, could stand us in good staid.

  HAVE A HAPPY START TO THE NEW YEAR.  BLESSINGS, GOOD HEALTH, AND PROSPERITY always.

Wordless Wednesday -PWD -Porti

 

Portuguese Water dog, also known as Porti, or PWD, prayer garden 4.18.12 026

This is our current Porti, she is now a senior, and as spoiled as ever.  Hard to get her eye action, but she is and will always be a charmer.  The breeder didn’t name her Canaille without reason,  I tried to find her pictures from the days she was winning ribbons, but they elude me.

Thanks for asking to see more of Canaille, she is the apple of my eye.. my one and only… =^_^=   .. and of course… I am smitten.

Blessings…  Have a wonderful week.  Imagine, we are almost through the week.  In Canada this will be a long week-end coming up.  This is the time when gardeners get serious.  Really serious.

Wordless Wednesday – What?

We take pictures, that is what we do.. those of us with a camera at the end of our arms/fingers, we take pictures, some we use right away, some get filed away till we discover them another day.  Well this is Wordless Wednesday, and I thought, let’s have a look at previous files/folders.  There are several whippet owners out there, that have recently hooked up to my blog.  I thought I’d share a picture of our boy.  This is one that I couldn’t remember when I looked at the small previews.  I uploaded and there was the picture. While I was looking at the messy bed (he is great at messing the bed, our own whirling dervish) I saw this head behind him.  I knew it wasn’t me, I took the picture. I was I admit stumped for a second or two, wondering who was in the bed.

My hair is no longer that long, or black.  that did look like my pillow and it is where I would be.. What was going on ?  Then “bingo!” the light went on.  Those of you who know us, have probably guessed already. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t know, I really had to question what had happened.

There you have it, our secret it out…. the dogs have taken over the bedroom.  Wordless Wednesday it is…. Enjoy mid-week everyone… if you live with a whippet or Porti, be aware, they have minds of their own. Before you know it, they have you trained. =^_^=

I am blown away by some of the photographs that fellow bloggers post.  There are several who capture the most amazing pictures of flowers, not just the flower, but their artist reproduction of it as they see it through their lens is very interesting.

Living in the city, right next to the downtown core, the object of our landscaping when we bought, was to allow nature to grow and give us a bit of country in our own private space.  Perennials were fine while the trees and shrubs were growing, but as the bones of the garden grew, the perennials soon lost their place in the sun. Add two active dogs to the mix, and…  …. we now enjoy the serenity of an escape from the concrete and buildings around us, but have lost the colour of the annuals and perennials.

This is only the beginning of June.  The garden is only beginning its journey into the growing seasons.  So when I say “Wow, amazing” to my wonderful blogger pals, it is because I’m totally enjoying life through your photography and stories.  Thank you.

Life is gray without friends, my world is full of colour, I am truly blessed.
