I have always loved visiting art museums. Despite that, I have not yet developed an eye or preference for any particular style of art, nor will I ever claim to have an expert knowledge of paintings. When I see something that stands out to me, draws me to it, and tells a story – I usually tend to like it. This is true for paintings, sculptures, illustrations, and photography. I don’t like boring art, I rather enjoy art that shows emotions and vulnerability. Still life has never captured my eye that much – but people and showing how they live and expressing what they may be going through or thinking at the time, has.
If I had to pick my most and least favorites, then it would begin like this: View Post
Throughout the years, I have owned many dogs yet, It is only very recently that I realized how much of a role a pet has played in my life. I cannot recall ever crying over my dogs as they passed away. Most died with out me around and also suddenly, and so I think that had something to do with me being able to control my emotions when they finally crossed over. Recently though, reality hit me when my latest dog was given a terminal diagnosis. I’ve oddly been dealing with it very different than the rest of the pets I have ever owned. Why have I been so emotional lately though? I believe it’s because she has been right at my side through most of the toughest times of my life – the death of a child, illnesses of my own, court dealings and also various changes in my life – and so I hold a perhaps larger connection and love for her that I had not had with any of the others.
Many of us see our pets just as our children. And so it hurts just as much to see them in pain, to know that they are dying, and that there is nothing that you can do or say to change what’s going to eventually happen. No one wants to hear that they will soon have to have their loved pet euthanized, or that they will die fairly soon. But when that time comes, there are a few tips you can utilize to prepare for the situation a bit better. These tips have helped me thus far. View Post
I’ve got to admit, I have never been a yogurt fan.
When I have bought yogurt, it has always been the sweet stuff with tons of added sugar… Also, I always have to top it with fruit and tons of granola. Not too healthy but filling nonetheless. Then the “Greek” variety soon became popular on store shelves and came out from various different companies like Chobani and Activia but I would never get used to the texture. I’ve also tried the fairly new Yo-plait dippers but I was more than disappointed with that – it tasted more like spoiled milk and stale cookies more than anything else. View Post
