Awhile



                       Gone for awhile. Taking a trip!  A fun trip. No worries here!  :) I'll return in a month or so. I send you love, peace, and a happy rest of springtime!  Savor the season wherever you live!  Spend some time among the lovely returning leaves and trees!  Dance a little among the flowers...

                            Much love to all!

Just This..



                  Woke up happy this morning. And I guess I am 'still' happy after a few minutes of sadness.
                            Fed kitties. Takes them a few minutes to eat their breakfast. Tennessee likes to eat a little.     Then drink some. Then go back to his food.

               I have to put his food 'up' every time he drinks so Snickers doesn't eat it. (Sometimes she's childlike and wants what her brother has.)

                             While waiting, I pull up my facebook page. First thing I see is a beautiful, but sad post from Home Free Farm, a farm animal rescue site from Ontario. It's the story of Winnie. A pig who was bred to be someone's dinner. She was loved by the girl she played with when she was a young pig. There is a photo.  Winnie has beautiful, loving eyes. The story tells how she was lured to a ramp, to go on to a truck to, you know...

                                                 Her special girl says goodbye...  I spill a few tears...
 
                         A few months ago, I decided to go vegetarian/vegan. As I said here, it's a personal decision, and I'll not judge what friends and family eat. The man I've shared my life with for 24 years eats meat, and likely always will. His choice. I love him and always will. I love my friends.

                                    I can only choose for myself.  But there are a couple of 'friends' who became malicious over my personal decision. Made unkind remarks. Posted things on MY page. I don't give a rat's ass what they post on their own. But I've always been picky about who my friends are, and I always will be.  Some will get the ax. On facebook or otherwise. I don't care who they are. I posted something one day about being kind. Not to animals, but just to people in general. One 'friend' commented, well, sometimes that's easier said than done.  And I thought, and please excuse my language, what the fuck is so hard about it?  For that and several other stupid things he/she said, this person is gone, at least from my universe.   Gone and not missed. Troll, troll baby. Just like that Vanilla Ice song from long ago..  Oh wait.. That's Ice, ice baby.  Anyway....

                                                      I'll never understand why some have such a hard time with the choices of others. I have loved animals my whole life, but ate them up until about 8 months ago..

                         Hypocritical of me. I'm the first to admit it. This post is much longer than I intended it to be.

                        Anyway, that story on Facebook was the first thing I saw online this morning. I'm over it now after having written this. But it was difficult to read. I wanted to reach into the photo and hug the sweet piggy.

                               My tears looked extra sparkly when they fell on my iPAD..........

No Magic



                    Blog holds no magic..
                    At one time was enthralled here..
                    Now it's like laundry.

                    Boring and old hat..
                    What do you, my friends, suggest?
                    Still love to visit yours!

                As hard as i try, it seems like a chore to post.  I'm not sure what happened?  Have any of you ever felt this?  I love to visit your blogs and comment.  Is it, (or will blogger let me) keep my google 'identity' so i can visit the sites of others??

      I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday!  Peace to you..
