Dog Psalm 27

My business is not to remake myself,
but make the absolute best of what God made.

Watch the roof line

It will unexpectedly dump an ice berg bigger than you.
But it's worth navigating the hazards for the view.

Too Deep

Winter marches on 
 the snow is too deep for walks
 when I open my eyes
PLEASE let it be spring

Dog Psalm #26

"Watch your thoughts, they become your words.
Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny."
frank outlaw
It's a sentiment that can't be said too often.

Cabin Fever

I can't seem to rub the grumpy off of me.
I'm sick of winter.

Dog Psalm #25

You will hear it
whispering your truth.
Gather all your strength.
Pick up your head and honor it.

Sewing Project

First there is the fabric selection and layout
and adjustments needed for an excellent fit,
followed by the patience to put it all together.
Wha-la. An "after bathrobe" for a small furry friend!

I believe

in fairies
They dance on the window sill when you are not looking.
They are bashful and will dart away if you try and stare at them.
But once you sense they are near
you can see them in your mind's eye
and the outfits they would wear...

Dog Psalm #24

Ten thousand flowers in spring,
the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter - 
if your mind is not clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.

GoD and DoG

 The best book I ever read.
and it's not just a book -
it's an animated video and a song.

Short is Good

Finally it is February. 
And while this is the shortest month of the year
it is certainly not short on history or action.
February is jam packed with auspicious birthdays:
president Abraham Lincoln, astronaut John Glenn, Jr
and The Boy Scouts of America to name just a few.

It's library lover's month and chocolate lovers month.
February hosts Valentine's Day and President's Day 
and tomorrow is Ground-Hog Day.
I declare today as Dog Hog Day. 
I went outside and saw my shadow. 
That means I will hog a full side of the bed 
until the end of winter.
