Eschew – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence #NationalPetDay

Lydia had made plans to go out with her friends, but after finding out that her beloved senior cat, Lula, had terminal cancer, she decided to eschew the plans and throw a final, fun birthday party for her cat instead. Lydia’s friends, who were the type to not take “no” for an answer but who were also completely understanding and supportive, decided to join her.

Bird Poop – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds



“You were really hoping to see a bird poop on my head again, weren’t you?”

That’s what I told my mom the other day when we were out shopping and she had me get out of the car to “plow the road” for her when she came upon a section of the parking lot that was filled with seagulls just sleeping and sunning themselves on the asphalt and not at all interested in moving out of the way for us.

This Tuesday’s Tale Is Your Story: Cinnamon & Shadow

My sweet angels Cinnamon and Shadow have their story featured today 🙂

Animals Are Feeling Beings Too


The tale of Cinnamon and Shadow told by Jeanne


Cinnamon was technically my mother’s dog, but I was like the second mother to her. A lady I used to work for had a miniature poodle named Ginger, and when my mother saw her, she wanted one. When Ginger’s breeder had some more puppies, my mother got one. Amazingly, Cinnamon and Ginger had the exact same markings, only Cinnamon was a little bigger. I suppose that’s not all that surprising since their parents were the same, just from different litters (about 2 years apart).
