New House Site in NC
The construction will take a while, and the move won’t be for a while. All these things will become more concrete as the house takes shape.
I treated myself to some quiet time with nature this morning. It was cool enough to sit on the porch and listen to the wind blow. There is nothing like communing with the great outdoors to stimulate creativity. May we all have time for ourselves like this.
May your day be blessed!
Almond eyes filled with canine wisdom
Peer into my soul
Content to be nearby
I rise, she follows
“Where are you going?”
Heart entwined with mine
Live long dog friend
Stay with me, always
"PET " OF MY HEART
Pets, how we love them. They are forgiving, constantly giving us love and affection in turn. Here is the lovely Magnolia with my friend Ruriko. This dog will snuggle forever, as long as you snuggle her!
Domestic pets give us more than love. Animals also help us to have lower blood pressure and enable greater healing for patients who have had heart attacks.
Studies show that pet owners have less depression, greater self-esteem, and more social contacts. Apparently, the dog or cat can act as a social catalyst between the owner and another person. Furthermore, pet owners report being happier and having a lower stress response, which lowers blood pressure.
I know that my sweet dog makes my life happier. She is playful and joyful. I am more present when we are sharing a moment.
