Sunny Day With A Saddened Mood

"The early morning was bitter cold, but there was a promise in the Eastern Skies of a beautiful day ahead."

"Our driveway no longer filled in, with the Highway clear, bare and wet.  Great driving conditions this day."

I was feeling a bit "off" this morning when I got up, however I still went through the motions.  Regardless of how I might feel on any given day our "Checkerboard Aussies" still have their needs to be looked after regardless if nothing else gets done.  I threw in a load of laundry, did up a few stray dishes in the sink, and made an attempt at sweeping up the floors.

Rob got up around 10 am to start his day.  Just before he had gotten up I had received a phone call that ended up with a very unpleasant interaction which unfortunately "set the mood" for my day ahead.  I am not a person who is able to just "let things go" easily.  I always try my best, with the interests of who I care for put first most times, unfortunately not everyone always thinks the same as we do ourselves at times.  I believe communication is always the best, but some of us are unable to communicate without outbursts ensuing, or cruel words being thrown.  This is unfortunate, never mind how very unpleasant for all parties concerned.

Strange that this came across my path of reading today.....

Don't dwell on the past or worry about the future for too long. Right now is life. Live it

... this is something I need to do, as really I do know how short and precious Life is.  

However as easy as it does sound, it really isn't always easy to practice as many of us know.  My day I felt was lost to me, as there are times upset seems to consume my being.  However I was grateful for the silver lining that wove itself throughout part of my day ....

"The couple who had set up an appointment to see the last puppy, had came today and claimed themselves to be the Forever Home for our littlest Red Tri female "Checkerboard Aussie" puppy.  Not only have they all been spoken for by Forever Homes, they now all have been named on this 7th Day since being born."

"This Memory was written down and put in my "Memories With Love" jar that will be opened next January 1st, 2014.  Has anyone else made themselves a "memory jar" this Year?  I do not put one in every day, but I am certain by the time it gets opened next Year there should be lots of wonderful memories to read."

This day the Sun had come out in full force.  Regardless of anything else I had plans to get done, that never got off the ground, at least my "Checkerboard Aussies" and I all had some fun time out in the Sunshine with a bit of ball throwing.

For me this day had been a sunny day with a saddened mood, but really every day in Life can't always be Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows, as much as we would like them to be ....

... at least I do know I am in Love with my best friend who is my husband, Rob.  This I would never change for anyone in this World, even though there has been times others have tried for us to part.  What I have learned in this Life, nothing does come between True Love, however mushy that might sound to some, I have found it to be true to my Heart.

On this day that is all she wrote, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. Love that song! lol!! Feel better my friend!!! (((Hugs & prayers)))

  2. I love those pups soo cute lovely colours and markings ! I am sorry to hear something put you off today that sucks when that happens ! It was a lovely sunny day here to but bitterly cold . Tomorrow is to be sunny as well ! Have a good evening !

  3. I don't think you sound mushy at all Cindy - I married my best friend and after 32 years of marriage we are still madly in love... The only thing that matters in your life Cindy is you and your happiness! You are a kind loving and caring person to everyone... Don't loose sight of that my dear xoxo

  4. I'm sorry your day was not very good! Don't put this in the memory jar :) I hope you get a good night sleep and tomorrow will be much better.

  5. Wow, it's uncanny how similar I'm learning that we are. I too have a very hard time letting go of things, and let upsets with people colour my whole day. It's such a hard thing to do, but I'm trying to work on not letting things affect me so much, because as your quote said, life is too short. So glad you have you Checkerboard Aussies to help cheer up your day, and remember that you have many friends who totally support you, which is what true friends do.

  6. absorbing the tone of others and having it derail the day happens to me quite often. I wish I had more advice- deep breathing and lots of outdoor walks help me get back to where "I" am.

  7. I dwell on stuff too.It's hard..but there are things to smile about..and things to get on with.
    take care
    Jane x

  8. I just don't like mean people!!! The End. Hope you can move on soon, get in that kitchen lady and whip something up, works for me every time! Ha

  9. Oh I am sorry you had a bad start to the day.
    Look at those cute little furry beauties I think they should keep you smiling Do not let whatever it is keep you down.
    AAAAHHHH I love mushy . Take care OK B

  10. Sometimes life is hard and people can ruin your mood in a minute. But look at the life you have, its wonderful, look at the friends you have on line and real life and know they care about you and really like you(I do) and most of all holding a puppy like holding a baby is the best feeling in the world.

    Have a better day tomorrow. Start fresh. And in my book you are one of my friends if that means anything

  11. I hope today is a better day for you. Glad you now have forever homes for all the puppies and love all their names. Have they opened their eyes yet?


  12. I hope today is a better day for you too Cindy. Try to get outdoors and breath some new air in. It will clear your mind and your heart.

  13. I have the same problem Cindy and find it so difficult not to be affected by something like that and hang onto it so it completely ruins my day/week/month! That quote is great and I will try and live by it too. x

  14. I've had my experiences with nasty people- within the family, of all things. It took me a long time to get things figured out, and a lot of help.

    I think people with a nasty nature are prisoners of their own bitterness or anger.


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
