On Friday I was thinking: What am I going to do on Saturday. I didn’t have anything planned and, sure I could have gone out and gone to the garden, taken pictures, etc. However, I wanted something a little different. Thinking back to a couple of weeks ago when I volunteered at the Dachshund rescue, I thought that I might volunteer somewhere, if anything was going on this weekend. Somewhere that I could blend volunteering and my camera. I checked…

Nope. Not a slip up in grammar. I am doing well, but on this past Sunday, I was doing good. 🙂 I was volunteering at Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue in York, SC about 30 minutes or so from my home. How I got there. As you may know, I attend The Peaceful Dragon, where I practice Tai Chi. Well, my Sifu, Eric Sbarge and his wife Debra are, shall we say, big fans of Dachsunds. As a matter of fact, when…

Joe Joe, for the most part, is part of my morning ‘routine’. That is, I see him most every morning while he and I are out doing our walks. He’s always happy to see Hobbs and gives him a nice rub on the head. Occasionally, we’ll see him walking his daughter’s two schnauzers, Ginger and Fred. 🙂 Hobbs like to stop for a sniff-fest when they are around.

Our first stop on the city tour took us to a small street…

This morning, I was enjoying the light and the warm weather during my walk. Suddenly, I realized that it was May 1st! Yes! May 1st. Where did the time go? Tony is finishing his up his first year of college and will be returning home. It’s been almost a year since I went to Australia. My goodness, I remember writing about my excitement about going! Many of us sit upon the precipice of summer … well most of us, except…

Every once in a while, I get the urge to try something different. A few weeks ago, I started looking at design magazines, books, and videos, trying to get an idea of what interior design is about. I cleaned up around the apartment, bought a few plants, nothing major. The place does look better, primarily because it is clean. LOL. Also, I’m pretty impressed. I’ve had the plants for a few weeks and they actually seem to be, dare I…
