Blog Prompt – The clothes that we wear some what describe our personality. Tell me about your favorite clothes.
I am a very casual clothes person for sure.Â I love my pull on tshirts and shorts.Â Throw in a pair of flip flops and I am happy.Â I haven’t put on a dress inÂ a very long time now.Â Thats sad!
Now I have my nice shorts and my everyday shorts.Â Things are so casual around here that if you don’t wear shorts, then something is really wrong.Â I really love the skorts that our out there, but its hard to find a pair that is long enough for my legs.Â I like my shorts and skorts to be knee length.
Oh, and I love capris too!!Â So many different colors and styles to choose from.Â And I really love the tshirts that have just a bit of sparkle in them.Â My mother has some really nice tshirts like that.Â But, she has many functions to go to that she has to look “nice casual”.
My husband and I watched Marley & Me last night and we just loved that movie.Â Beware!!Â Have many tissues available during the movie.Â Anyone that has ever had a dog for a pet for many years can relate so much to this story.
Even though its been 3 years since we had to put down our aging and very sick boxer, Mia, this movie made me think about what a wonderful pet she was for 10 years.
And as I watched the movie last night with our boxer now, Ernest, and seeing the small tumors that are already growing on him, broke my heart.Â He has only been here with us for 3 years but he is about 7 years old and his little muzzle is already turning gray.Â He’s a great boxer, my buddy and my friend.
Here is one of my favorite pages of Ernest, my favorite subject.Â Â Â The kit is by April Staker.
Here is part of Marley’s Eulogy that I thought I would share with you today.
“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours.
Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things â?? a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity.
Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
Great movie for the whole family to watch and love and I bet a lot of you will own the book or the video afterwords.
Give your dog a big hug and have a great day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
