What’s Been Going On? A Lot!

If you’ve been stopping by now and then, I want to say thank you! I’ve been doing so many things and neglecting this blog. The main way I’ve been spending my time is by finally finishing a children’s story I started over 10 years ago! The title, as of now, is Dinosaur Gardens. I’ll be posting cover art very soon, so check back or even better, subscribe. That way you won’t miss anything. I will also be renovating this site so I can post about my writing. In the meantime, I have a photo and a few new videos to share. All the animals are doing well and we have a new addition: my older son’s kitten, Harley!   She was being fed at the local dump by my friend Jan. We’re so happy we were looking for a kitten at the...

A Lot Has Been Going On!

This will be a longer post, but I hope it makes up for the lack of posts lately! First, I haven’t mentioned before that I’m taking Dressage lessons twice a week. Here’s a picture from a recent lesson. Lakota is such a good boy. I used to be afraid of him! Ha ha!     Another horse-related announcement: I have a new project horse! Megamove has been retired from racing. He will be retrained by my riding teacher, Anna Toomey. We’re excited for a new challenge! Isn’t he a beauty?       Now that Fall is officially here, it has cooled down slightly. The animals have been outside more, enjoying themselves. Here’s Shade, trying to hide in the grass.   Monster is always up to something. I really can’t...

Schedule? What Schedule, It’s Summertime!

Of course Summer is more relaxed, less rushed, less busy, right? But it’s also much easier to become distracted, to stay with a schedule, even to get things done. It’s also a great time to learn new things. I signed up for an online Seminar about writing and publishing, so I’m very distracted and off schedule. However, it should soon lead to getting things done! In the meantime, here’s a few photos for you to enjoy. Rain showers and storms are becoming a regular thing again. Typical Florida Summer weather.       It seems the tree frogs are too hot to hide themselves properly. This one’s above the shutter by a window.       The cats get lazy. I threw a cat treat to Monster, but he didn’t notice it...

A Little Reminder, Especially Now . . .

Since I write about animals, I thought it would be a good time for a quick reminder about Canine Heartworm preventive and Canine and  Feline Flea medications. In the Summer months with the increased humidity, it becomes a necessity to remember monthly medications to keep our animals, and ourselves, free from discomfort caused by flea bites and possible illness. My personal choice of Heartworm preventive for my dogs is Trifexis, since it also provides flea medication in the same tablet.     Another choice for dogs in flea medication is a product called Capstar. This begins killing adult fleas within 30 minutes! Unfortunately it doesn’t last a month like other medications.  Capstar is also available as a feline medication. My choice for my cats is a...

From The Weekend

    I was busy this past weekend and it seems the animals were, too! The early mornings showed a surprise – we have bats in the neighborhood! I’m happy to know they’re there, though, since they eat a lot of bugs.     The dogs kept each other busy by playing together outside. It’s nice, they can keep each other out of trouble and tire each other out at the same time:     Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched? Turns out, Shade was watching me and the dogs!     I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did. Share...

Cats Being . . . Cats!

Cats can be very amusing at times. I love it when mine chase each other through the house or do silly things when they think they’re all alone and no one is watching. I hope you enjoy these 2 videos of my cats being themselves, having fun and just being, well, you know, cats!                 Share...
