My Wednesday Wishes for the week:
1) A Magical Door - One that will take me back in time. Not permanently. On a day when I miss my grandma, I can open it and step right into her living room. General Hospital will be on the tv and she'll be making something yummy in the kitchen. Or maybe it's a Saturday morning and we're just rising around 10am. She'll make some yummy coffee. Or maybe it's a playoff game and we're at the stadium in her and grandpa's seats surrounded by their friends that tell us not to yell so loud (before she swats them on the head and tells them to stand up and cheer like a real fan!). It really doesn't matter what day as long as it's a day. It might be nice to step back into production for a day here or there - see old friends (and get paid to hang out with them!) and remember why I got out in the first place. There are even high school and college days I would step back in for a day! Relive the fun here and there. "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." Ah, Dumbledore. Always the voice of reason. But I promise not to sneak off in it often. Just every so often.
2) More Time to READ - Wouldn't it be nice to crack open that book you've been dying to dive into, read for as long as you like, then have it be exactly the same time when you closed it that it was when you opened it? I don't think reading should count. It's a GOOD thing. It's good for us, good for our brains. Why should we have to give up so much time to do such a wonderful thing? We shouldn't! Reading should be like hitting a pause button in our lives. Book opens, time stops, book closes and time restarts. I think we could get MORE people to read that way, don't you?
3) Another dog - Kharma Rescue just got a litter in.
Look at her!
So precocious - you can see it in her eyes.
And this one!
But I swore no more puppy and I'm sticking to. Holding firm. We'll foster puppies in the future - do all the hard work so they go easy into a home.
For now, this is more my speed...
Meet Damon, 7 years young. Enough time left that I don't have to be worrying over, but old enough that he's ready for just a good snuggle all the time! I love a dog with years. There's wisdom there. And so much love to give. They're always grateful for that second chance. Lily's a good girl, don't get me wrong. Fantastic even. But she has no idea how rough it is out there for dogs, especially her breed. Dogs like this know. And they're so happy to get another chance. Give them a bed INSIDE the house and some belly rubs and they are good to go! Man, I love that face.
What about you - what are your wishes for our Magical Kitty this week? Wednesday waiting to grant them...just after her mid-morning nap.
