TRAVEL THEME – RELAXING

It would be wise to take a tip from our animal friends.  These critters  know how to relax.

Our neighbor’s cat comes to our door every so often.  We don’t feed him because her people say he’s covered in that area, so we respect that.  Apparently, Tripper doesn’t really care if you feed him or not.  Unconditional love.  🙂  He visits anyway.

He must find it very relaxing here.  In return, he gives me a chance for a little time out for myself.  We rest together on the deck.  I talk.  He listens.  Very relaxing.   I’m following his lead.

Our cat, Phoenix, seems to have a similar take on what’s important and what can wait.  She is THE MOST relaxed cat I know.  CATTITUDE!

She’s a fast learner or it’s just a cat thing.  (It’s the latter, I do believe.)

Not to digress, but I will.  Yesterday, after seeing Ailsa’s challenge, we went to dinner and this is what greeted us at the door.  I had to include it, just in the off chance, as corny as it is, that it makes you smile.  (one of my goals)

UGH! I told you it was corny!

And of course, there’s our old pal, Rocky.  He and Phoenix are best buds, and I think he’s taking a few tips himself.

Now this dog’s perfected relaxing!

Relaxation at it's finest!

We don’t tell him to go in there, he just does!

Have a relaxing weekend  –  and then some.  While you’re chillin’, stop off at Ailsa‘s blog for more on the art of Relaxation.

Bob’s Challenge: Frameable Keepers

Here’s one of my best friends. Rocky. I’m entering him into Bob’s Challenge, Frameable Keepers because I think he’s a beauty and worthy of being on display. Wouldn’t you say?

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – MY 2012 PEOPLE OR ANIMALS

It’s snowing and I’m sitting here thinking about sunshine, warm breezes, beaches, and coconut oil.  I can’t help it.  I’m not a fan of the winter months.  My oil bill could choke a horse, and I’m still just as cold inside as I am outside.  ( can you say “old drafty house?” )

My thoughts turn to summer and a fun trip to the zoo with my beautiful grandkids that I only see once or twice a year. UGH!

So for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, I decided to showcase a few Cape May NJ zoo animals and any other critters I’ve come by along the way.

Enjoy and have a super happy new year.  Be safe!

And not to forget family and friends
