Weather Checking Dog

This boy is fearful,
yes, fearful of his own shadow.
Today for example has been one of those 
rainy off and on days,
I had a lovely time in the garden, 
between showers,
but when I go indoors Dougal's sat hiding 
in a dark place under the stairs!
The thing is he is too intelligent
 for his own good.
He knows that a grey sky 
means rain is imminent, 
he associates rain with thunder,
thunder is a nasty banging experience.

Of late he has spent much of his time gazing 
through the window checking for 
changes in the sky!

On a positive note we experienced 
some spectacular light changes today.
Off to see an animal behaviourist tomorrow!
Wishing you all a good week.

PS  I'm remembering the day too
with all you folk over the pond.

Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor
