31 Days of May ~ A Project ~ May 25, 26 & 27


May 25:
  • Be grateful for a sweet friend who reads between your lines and can feel your desperation.  When she calls you and invites you out to her acreage for a little animal therapy ~ jump at the chance! Donna from kirkville, you have a compassionate soul and I thank you for your friendship.    
  • Soak up the serenity that walking around her land provides.  

  • Taking another friend along for the ride, Corinne (Vancouver last October), who is a crazy cat lover as well always adds to the enjoyment.

  •  Sylvester, the polydactyl Manx kitty soaking up the love. 

  •  Watch the sweet pup named Summer survey her land.

  •  Enjoy watching baby geese swimming.

  • Feed the horses

  •  Once in awhile look up ~ you never know what you might see.

  •  Take a horse's advice on not taking life or yourself too seriously.
  • End the visit with a cup of tea and some snacks and perhaps a bit of talking and laughing.  Thank you for a wonderful morning Donna!  It was very much appreciated and exactly what 'the doctor ordered'.
  • Don't get insulted when the geese give you their true opinion of you stopping along the side of the road to take photos of them and their babies.

May 26:
  • Although you said you wouldn't plant any pots this year (no time and not in the mood), break down and buy yourself a cool green pot for the front of your house and add a little curb appeal.  

  • Walk along the creek and the golf course with your sweetie.  See?? There's trees in Saskatchewan!

May 27:
  • Savor the dessert your sweet friend Penny from A Penny for My Thoughts (and from my "My Lucky Penny" post last year) brought to you today after spying it on her blog.  Walk an extra 15 minutes in the evening to wear it off.  :)  Thanks Penny it was very yummy!

Hi Catherine, Two things are very important in your post today: FRIENDS and NATURE. Both can do wonders for one struggling... You obviously had a wonderful time with your friends --and enjoyed that special dessert. YUM....

Hugs,

Donna said...

oh my what funny shots of Rocky and his showing off of his teeth and you know he was showing off because I have never seen him do that? hilarious, but my favourite shot is our cat and the one of Summer - thanks for that and it was so fun to visit with friends where conversation is not lacking!

June is coming up fast...

love your pictures ...may the sun shine upon you and bless you this day!

Wow your friend Donna's place is so lovely! It must have been so much fun to meet all the animals! I love the picture of horse when you looked up! And thae faces of horse giving you advise and goose giving you true opinion ( your caption is so funny!) are priceless!
The dessert looks super yummy. Gave me sweet tooth :-)
Few more days of May and your project is definitely going great!

Lin said...

Looks like a wonderful day! Glad you have some good friends to pick you up when you need it.

I always say that I'm not gonna plant pots either....never happens. And I end up complaining about watering them too. :( But they are sooooo pretty.....

Hope your month of May has lifted your spirits!

Wow. Looks like you had a great weekend! Nothing is better than a little furry fix, in my opinion. So cool to see the extra toes on the cat. *smile*
