Walking our nature trail
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir
Walking in nature is my happy place!
So happy I am healthy and smart enough to walk regularly
My pansies give me joy every time I step outside
They have been happily blooming since late spring
“The earth laughs in Flowers” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
On our nature trail
Joy! She got up to bark when I sneezed! So, Summer, our
first sheltie from 1978 or so had all these moments when
she would bark – one was when I sneezed!
Summer passed that on to the next sheltie and so on and
So on and now in 2023 it’s like a bit of our first sheltie is still
Hope, our border collie does NOT bark when I sneeze…
Hope – Please, may I have some more.
“If you don’t own a dog, at least one,
there may not necessarily be anything wrong with you,
but there may be something wrong with your life.” – Roger Caras
Dogs definitely help make a house a home
Thoughts? Favorite simple joys? Dog person? Do flowers give you joy? Gardening?
