What Finding Out My Dog Is Sick Has Taught Me

Being Lydia!

First of all, I apologize for not posting sooner. Life kind of got away from me. I have been down with a cold turned bronchitis and spending time with Violet. Also, this has been a very difficult and emotional piece to write.

Last Saturday we took Violet to the vet. She had a lump in her throat that seemed to be growing, was not eating and had other symptoms that concerned us.

We were quite worried on the half hour drive to the vet. Violet is 13 years old and has several health conditions. We know she won’t live forever, but we also want to make sure she isn’t suffering.

The appointment showed that all of her lymph nodes are swollen and sore. The vet alluded to the fact this is not good and may very well be cancer. He took some samples and on Monday called to say that…

What Does Waiting Look Like to You?

Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

Each week, I eagerly await the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge that asks bloggers to share appropriate images based on that week’s theme.

As I anticipate my last weekend at the Sacramento River delta, I keenly recall animated conversations during the late winter and early spring of how we were going to spend every weekend windsurfing. “Best laid plans” and how quickly time flies!

While we anxiously waited and dreamed of our new season, I am sharing some older photos that have been waiting to see the light of day and work for the theme of windsurfing and Waiting.

Waiting for ??

Almost two years ago to the day, I posted this image of a man observing the windsurfers and kiteboarders waiting for wind.

One Minute Recipes – Skinny Microwave Banana Mug Cake

The Purple Almond

For this week’s morning videos, I’m going to focus on “mug recipes”. While I don’t typically advocate using the microwave, sometimes it’s warranted, due to lack of time. For today’s recipe, I have a healthy “Banana mug cake”.  If you can’t have nuts, swap the almond butter for SunButter (Sunflower seed butter). If you’re like me, and can’t eat oats or grains, use Cassava Flour (NOT tapioca flour).

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Let us stop for a moment to pray and meditate.

Some People Never Cease To Amaze Me

I had someone tell me that I am lucky to have the life I have.  And honestly it made incredibly angry.  Luck occurs when preparation meets opportunity and I am constantly preparing myself; which means I work diligently and hard!  I’m not lucky, I’m a dedicated worker.  To say I am lucky negates or minimizes the years of struggle and sacrifice to get where I am.  To tell me I’m lucky is to slap my face and spit on me.

I didn’t hit a lottery, I worked my a$$ off!!

My First Time

Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns

I was sixteen. He, a mere fourteen months my senior. We sat facing one another, my knuckles wrapped tightly around the armrest, his hands lying casually in his lap. Conversation was light, the air around us tense for me, for him, not so much. He smiled mischievously and I, trying to hide the sheer panic creeping through my every vein, returned that smile with what could not have been more than a grimace. Suddenly, his position changed, as did his facial expression. We were no longer eye to eye. It appeared that he was rising, but without standing. From where I was seated and from what I could see between the tears flooding from my eyes, the smile on his face had become a huge grin accompanied by a full fit of laughter.

By the time the plane leveled, my brother had regained his composure while I was still dry…
