My dad’s puppy was small enough to hold in one hand at Christmas. Well not anymore! She’s almost all grown up. Look at those toes!!! She’s got Grinch feet! She’s so sweet and loves to cuddle and chase her sisters around the yard. Dogs just make life so much better! God couldn’t have made a better companion for us.
When we both my girls joined our family I had short hair. Hope, my youngest had begged me to grow it out, so I thought, sure…It took me several years to grow it out, but it got really long after I left my marriage and I just kept letting it grow.
Getting it cut this time was more than just a change of style, in a way it felt like I was lopping off a lot of negative energy. Like when people who have dreadlocks cut their dreads off. It feels like a freshness that I have needed for quite a while.
A visit he made
To visit my Zelda Sue
and of course me too.
She was exhausted when he left. They had so much fun.
She’s making faces
Decorated with war paint
A beautiful mask.
Riding in the car,
My dog is weirder than yours,
Or she’s really smart.
When taking trips in the car my dog Zelda has figured out that she can lay in the sun in the back window. Plus, she gets the bonus of being able to see everything around her. Silly girl.
In the works is a painting based on a picture that I took of my niece with a goofy hat on one day when we were thrifting. The picture is 5 from years ago, but I have always loved it. She crinkles her nose just like Auntie when she laughs.
Footfalls on the stairs
They are smaller than my own
My daughter is HOME.
Missy Boo is finished. She has always looked crabby even when she’s purring and happy. I think that I was able to capture her pretty accurately. I miss her. She lives with my ex boyfriend and I haven’t seen her in a while.
His love fortifies my heart
He never lets go
