Day 2 – Pawsitively Adorable

I couldn’t get too deep into my June ‘Accent the Positive’ challenge without sharing some moments with our precious Cavalier Kat. Our lives would not be the same without her. πŸ’ž

When Dan and I decided (ok Dan agreedπŸ˜‚) to get another dog, I wanted something small and manageable. Dan wanted a ‘real dog – not a pocket-size accessory’. We decided on a Cavalier – sight unseen. When I picked her up, she was so tiny. She could fit in the palm of my hand. I was a little leary about Dan’s reaction to her size, but she snuck right into his heart – and she quickly grew into a fair size dog (15kg.)

Kat & her big sister – the late and so great Casey. (Casey was an American Eskimo/Pomeranian. She was intelligent, empathetic, and protective of our grandbabies, our elderly parents, and anyone human or animal who was sick, injured, or fragile in any way).
Discovering the garden planters. I have no idea how she got up there. 🀷

Who let the dogs out? (Song of the day🎢). Visiting at our son Dan’s with Baccardi and Cornelius
Looking for a snack. Always!
Out walking – sort of. We have to stop to check out every tree, gopher hole, fence post and the like. πŸ™„
And, Kat’s favourite pastime – nap time. 😴
Thank you for dropping by! Have a great dayπŸ’ž

Two days down! Twenty-eight to go. See you tomorrow. 🌞

Day One – The Sky’s The Limit

After much deliberation, I decided to kick off my June ‘Accentuate the Positive’ blogging challenge with a salute to our province – The Land of the Living Skies (Saskatchewan).

In Saskatchewan, our skies stretch forth as far as the eye can see, unimpeded by mountains, or skyscrapers, or the like. Our winds also blow unimpeded by such natural or man-made windbreaks. Thus, we not only see anything in our skies, chances are it is moving and constantly changing – giving one the impression that they are in fact ‘Living Skies’.

A clear blue sky beaming down on the Jag we used to have. It was gorgeous – the Jag and the sky. πŸ˜‚
😳
Sky in the Water – I think that used to be a songπŸ€”
I love it when that happens. πŸ’ž

One down, twenty nine to go! Have a good day and I hope to see you tomorrow! 🌞

Accentuate the Positive

I have kept things pretty free and easy since I retired last spring. What can I say? I have gotten a bit slack and have possibly (probably) developed commitment issues. πŸ€”

Anyway, the time has come for me to step up and challenge myself. Sooo…. for the month of June (2021) I have decided that I will post a blog EVERY day! Not just any blog. I will post a blog that ‘Accentuates the Positive“. 😊

If you need a smile, a virtual hug, or an occasional snicker, drop by (any day in June) and hopefully I will not disappoint you. If you have the urge to challenge yourself likewise, feel free to join me on my mission! Tag me or send me a link to your blog in the comment section and I will keep an eye on how you are doing throughout the month. πŸ‘€

It is too funny that I am nervous about embarking on this challenge. For decades, my life revolved around countless projects, responsibilities, and implausible deadlines. Now, committing myself to a few minutes each day for a month has me in a tizzy. 🀣

To kick off this big undertaking, I turn things over to the great Willie Nelson and this particularly positive little tune!
