Accepting Change

Last Update: December 17, 2021

Hi, Everyone!

Short a sweet message this evening...

Recognize the doggie?

This was Ginger just last week!

Gracie and GinGin Spa Day

Suzanne and I plan Spa Day for BFF doggies. An arduous day, is softened when one is venturing, with a friend.

Gracie didn't want to get out of car, and once she smelled the place, bolted out of her collar!

GinGin? She couldn't wait to meet up with her friend!

Old Habits Die Hard

Spa day takes anywhere from 5 to 8 hours!

Today she in by 10:30. Once I return to the car, I'm always looking over at her empty seat and sometimes, talking to myself!

Same thing at the house! If it's too quiet, something's usually up.

Today was no different. Cooking in the kitchen, I just expect her to be right under my feet!

Once I get used to no GinGin, it's time to pick her up!

In with a Malti-poo and Out with a Jack Russell!

I said give her a short cut, but really?? No more sassy tail!

Spa Day wears me out!




As you can see, I must accept this change!

The up-side of this grooming? She'll be good for 6 months!!

Change means stepping out of one's comfort zone.

When I can take each day as it unfolds, I'm far more flexible. Change becomes an adventure, once the fear is faced and Attitude is changed.

As with this week's turmoils, yesterday is gone! No use crying over spilled milk.

Each day, we have a new slate! Let yesterday go, and take the lesson. Plan for the future, but "Best to Live in the Present!"

"Yesterday is History! Tomorrow is a Mystery! Today is a Present!"

Enjoy the mystery, use the History, but Today is all we have!

Taking things "One Day at Time"!


Enjoy and Appreciate all the Changes!

Growth and Adventure, await!

Here at WA, we all are taking risks. We try new things and some of them work, while others are frustrating. We take the lesson and help others!

We have the greatest platform and community support!

We are Friends going for the dreaded Spa Day! All's well when we are venturing out with Friends!

Wishing all my WAmily, an exciting Christmas week, with all that may pop up!

Except the challenge and go forth and give out Good Cheer!


Where change starts...

"Man in the Mirror" - Michael Jackson

Man in the Mirror

"I'm gonna make a change

for once in my life.

It's gonna feel real good,

gonna make a difference

Gonna make it right...

"I'm starting with the man

in the mirror

I'm asking him to change

his way

And no message could

have been any clearer.

if you want to make the world

a better place

Take a look at yourself,

and make a change!"


(Yea! My YouTube link was successful!)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Y'all!

Getting ready for a big weather change, tomorrow! From shorts and sandals, to sweaters and boots and a bonfire meeting!

God Bless You All!

That's a nice, sassy short haircut, Barb! When I had my Westie he used to get a buzz cut (except for his face) and it was great to hold off longer between spa days! Cute! Living in the moment is a skill to be worked on but certainly helps. Wishing you a wonderful holiday - stay warm :-)

Susan, she got her buzz cut right before our cold spell.
She's been staying close by and warm.
Weather canceled our bonfire outing, so she has cabin fever.
Enjoy your holiday, Susan!
Looking forward to a wonderful 2022!

Wow Barb! What did they do to GinGin!

That is a serious haircut right there! And just when things are getting colder??🤔

I hope the youngster accepts the change as we all must do in all that we do!

Enjoy a wonderful weekend my good friend!:-))

I know, Nick!
I need to pull out her "Coat of many colors" or she'll be one chilly critter.
Temps are now in the 40's, with rain.
Have one special week, Nick and a new year of peace and prosperity.
Barb and GinGin!

It's always important to have a selection of different coats for our furry friends depending on what the weather is doing Barb!

Sounds like your temperatures are coming down to what we have been experiencing daily for the last month or so!

I wish you a special week too and a great year full of peace and prosperity as well my dear friend!

Nick & Fifi!!🐾🐾

This is my Mantra to a "T", Sis! Every day is full of new surprises! I am ready to put a hold on all the new surprises that I am receiving on a daily basis, but hey, here we are now on a Saturday! Time to go to battle!

She sure got coiffed real well, but she'll be looking like her old self in short order! Mark my words!

All we can do is take things in stride, Bro.
This coming year has got to be an improvement from 2021. We must have Hope and Faith!
What's that song..."Got to admit it's getting better, a little better all the time. It can't get no worse!"
LOL
Bonfire was rained out, so we've been house bound until tomorrow morning:)
Temps are down to 40's. No wind, but dreary rain.
Pace will pick up this coming week, with plenty of holiday to-do's.
Staying busy!
Heading to the Pub in a bit!
Save me a seat!

Sure, Sis, but I'm not much of a Christmas card sender!

I'm not fanatical, but it's a effort to put out some cheer, so it's therapeutic!
Women are usually better at this, anyway! ;)

I was worried when I read the heading, I thought nooo not another one. Lol. But a doggie challenge, cute.

I have, as you know, a malti~poo too. Or it should be multi Pooh.
