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

I’m thinking Wolf or Tiger for myself. What about you? Which do you think fits you?
A spirit animal is a representation of different characteristics and skills. I like to explore this type of mythology because I find it very uprising when you can refer to yourself through an animal like a panther which symbolizes astral travel, reclaiming your power and guardian energy. Spirit animals can be used as motivation in everyday life by you trying to live up to your animals meanings and prove them to be correct. I’ve researched this list of animals with their significance so you too can find your spirit animal! Comment below which animal represents you.

“Honey, I can’t find Hex or Jinx anywhere! If we don’t find the cats soon, we’ll be late for the v-e-t!”
Jessica chuckled at Harold’s frantic voice. “Don’t worry, dear. Let me show you a trick.”
She went into the kitchen, and Harold stood in the doorway, watching her. She took a can of tuna out of the pantry and plugged in the can opener. “I’d stand out of the way if I were you,” she warned him.
She attached the can of tuna to the can opener and pressed the button. The can had barely started turning when the sound of paws thumping on the hardwood floor sounded outside the kitchen. Startled, Harold quickly stepped out of the way before he got knocked down by two black cats that suddenly came running into in the kitchen, seeming to have appeared out of nowhere.
“What the -” he said, staring at them.
Jessica chuckled. “No matter where they are, they always come running the instant they hear me opening a can of food. Let me take care of them. You get the carriers.”

(note: the cats’ names come from a dream I once had where I had two black cats named Hex and Jinx)

As a proud owner of a black cat, I wanted to share something for Black Cat Appreciation Day to help dispel the superstitious stigmas and myths that still somehow surround them, and thought of something that also works for One-liner Wednesday:
“A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.” – Groucho Marx
John and Jim were helping their grandfather out on the farm. Young Jim was tending to the chickens and young John was over with the cattle. Chuckling, Jim took one of the chicken eggs and snuck up behind John.
“Hey, John!” he called, and as his brother turned, he tossed the egg at his face, where it cracked. “Ha ha! The yoke’s on you!” Jim said with a laugh as the egg ran down his brother’s face.
John scowled and wiped his face. “That’s ‘yolk’, not ‘yoke’, Jim. Get the joke right, would you?” He sighed. “Come here.”
He led Jim over to the nearby shed and grabbed a wooden crosspiece with two large collars on it. He placed one of the collars over Jim’s head. “There. Now the yoke’s on you.”
