Camera Critters: Time To Go Inside

Shelby decided there was too much snow outside so
she hurried out, went potty and ran back to the porch.
She is ready to go inside, get a treat then take a nap.

Panic Attacks Are Sneaky

Panic attacks are sneaky. I can be completely happy one minute then the next minute go into a full blown panic attack. Death is my biggest fear. I do NOT want to die. But I know that I will die one day and there is not a damn thing I can do about it.
One of the worse things about my panic attacks is the overwhelming, intensity in the feeling is being nothing....of not existing....of once day not waking up. Recovering from a panic attack is getting harder each time. I just want to stay in bed and never leave my house.

One Word 365: Peace

Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap that long list of goals you won’t remember a few weeks from now anyway! Choose just one word. One word you can focus on every day, all year long… One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live.  One word. 365 days. A changed life.

For 2020, I am once again going to use the word "Peace". This is the same word I picked for 2019 and find it is still appropriate since I am still searching for inner peace.

Sunday Stealing: The Queen's Meme

 https://sundaystealing.blogspot.com/
This week's Sunday Stealing was stolen from The Queen's Meme.

1. January usually has ample amounts of snowfall in parts of the world. Did you ever make snow cream as a kid?  

Of course! And I still make it now and then. Yummy!

2. January is one of the months with 31 days. What are you going to do with that extra day? 

It does not feel like an extra day. It if was a true extra day I would spend the day relaxing in bed.

3. What is your favorite magazine? 

Reader's Digest

4. If you live to be 99 years old, what would you like your life to be like in that last decade?? 

Happy, peaceful and carefree.

5. The great world of Wikipedia tells me that scientists claim 99% of all documented species are extinct. Which remaining species in the 1% category would you really like to see extinct. And which species in the 99% category would you like to bring back?

I would not mind if cockroaches went extinct. They are so gross.  There are many of the extinct species I would like to bring back, to include the Northern White Rhino and the Passenger Pigeon.

6. On January 14, 1986 motorists were required for the first time to wear seat belts?
Do you always buckle up? Why or why not?

I always buckle up, and I buckle up properly.  I feel safer with my seat belt on. Also, I believe my mom would have possibly survived the car crash that killed her if she had been wearing her seat belt properly. 

7. Why did the cow jump over the moon?

The cow jumped over the moon because she was extremely happy.

9. Have you said anything in the last 24 hours that you regret?

Nothing I can think of.

10. Have you ever written anything on your blog that you wish you could take back?

I am sure I have, I just don't remember what it was.

11. Are you the blabber or the blabbee? Tell us your most embarrassing blabbermouth moment.

I do not like gossip and blabbering. I think it can be very hurtful, so I do my best to not be either.

12. How important is a cell phone in your life?

It is very important to me because it keeps me in touch with my loved ones at all times.

13. A "cuisine" is typically influenced by and named after geographical regions and cultures. Pretend your blog is a country. What is the name of your cuisine?

Moment Food!  At this moment in time, this is the food we will eat.  

14. You are the Blog Paparazzi! Which blogger's real photograph are you most interested in getting?

Anyone willing to let me post their photo.

15. Are you always on time or just a tad late?

I tend to be 10 to 15 minutes early.

16. Can you think of a time when you were late for something and it was REALLY a big deal?

Many, many, many years ago I was late to work twice in one week and was fired.

17. If you were on your way to work and had five minutes to get there, would you stop in the road to rescue a crossing turtle?

I would stop to recuse the turtle. The boss can yell at me later. 

18. When you are having a really good day, what usually makes it good?

Low stress, good music, and a nice glass of sweet tea.

19. What is the most annoying Christmas song?

Santa Baby

20. You are Snow White. Which dwarf is your favorite and why?

Sleepy is my favorite dwarf, because I too, am always sleepy.

Happy New Year 2020

At the sound of the tolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let’s raise our hopes in a confidant toast,
to the promise it ushers in.

May your battles be few, your pleasure many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.

May peace of heart fill all your days
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.
