Unexpected

I had an unexpected reaction to someones comments on Facebook this week and I don’t know why it got too me so much. Breaking it down, my state has this incredible public Facebook page (well two at least) where people from all over the state can make public posts about if they have pets go missing. There’s one page that’s for any pet and another specific for dogs, cats, etc.

Now I am sure if you are a pet owner, you know around New Years it can be dangerous for pets when it comes to fireworks. They can scare them and make them so scare they will just go for it and run. These two pages are just FULL of missing pets around this time every year, some end up being happy stories, some not so much.

There was one story I was reading and my heart broke. Now I must say apart from the owners saying that the dogs had dug under the fence, there was no other mention about things like, if the owners were even home, if the dog had ever suffered from fear of fireworks before. The only two things for certain was that the dog dug under the fence, and the fireworks would have gone off illegally. There was this one poster though that made a comment about how selfish the owners were for leaving the dog outside.

And it made me SO mad! I couldn’t help myself, I tore into this person, as well with others.

What is it with me and animals? I cannot help myself. I also could not believe this person couldn’t see how inappropriate their comments were. They were just so unnecessary.

I think that I found my weakness!

Share Your World … Week 50

Can you believe that we are up too Week 50?! Only two more weeks left of the whole year!

What is your favorite smell? What memory does it remind you of?

I have a few different ones that I love, especially when they “match” with a particular season. For example, I love the smell of freshly mowed grass when it’s Spring and I love the smell of rain coming during Summer, because you know there’ll be a thunderstorm coming. I love the smell of a beach during Summer and I love the smell of cocoa during Winter. Personally as well I love the smell of men’s aftershave, it just does things to me. Sometimes I’ll follow my partner around the house because I love how he smells when he puts it on,lol

What type of pet do you have or want to have?

I already have a dog, a chihuahua to be more specific. There are so many animals that I would love to have as a pet though, but it’s just wrong. Like your Lions, Wolves and Owls. Animals like that should never ever be pets.

Are you usually late, early, or right on time? 

I will always try to get somewhere at least 10 minutes early. It might have been the way I was brought up, but it just seems more respectful. Even being “on time” can put you into a rush. It’s amazing how much you can do and how much you can sit and take deep breaths when you give yourselves 10 minutes. For example, I try to get to job interviews 10 minutes early, so I can do things like pop into the toilets and refresh myself. I have a friend that whenever we get to together socially, she is always late. It drives me nuts! She’s never late for work, so why not show the same respect? Sometimes we can’t get table until she’s there and we can’t order until she’s there. One of our friends has actually started lying to her about the time to make sure she get’s there reasonably on time…And she still manages to be at least a few minutes late each time.

For recharging, would you rather meditate, swim, walk, listen to music, write, read, yoga, qigong other?

There’s usually two things I do to recharge. I either read or I play a computer game that I enjoy and doesn’t make me “rage”. At the moment the two games that I use to recharge are “The Sims” and “Guild Ward 2”. Both these games relax me because they’re not too complicated for me and I usually end up playing them for a while, without even realising how much time as passed.

Share Your World … Week 37

(I’m just warning you all, this ones a bit long!)

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?

I don’t think that I have really ever owned a pet rock or jem that is Jewellery. I do remember once someone giving me a very pretty rock that was painted beautifully, but I never considered it to be a pet. I had a lot of plush toys, so I never really needed a rock pet, I guess?

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

Strength – A lot of people say that I am one of those people who is just there for others. I think it’s one of my strengths, sometimes I don’t even realise how weird it is how I’m there for people. One particular situation that stood out was after I broke up with an ex, there were all these girls who thought he was going to date them…And he didn’t, and they all came to me, trying to hurt me initially I guess, to get back at him? I managed to turn it around and ended up being their friend. I felt kind of bad for them really, he cheated on me with all these girls, but he also clearly made them feel like they were “the one”. He didn’t seem to really care how much he had led them on either. I helped them and I was over him before they were.

Weakness – As strong as I feel these days and I feel I can stand more on my own when it comes to my point of views and beliefs. I wish I just didn’t have so many “triggers”! There are some topics, especially on Facebook where I still get really wound up and get emotional with people and their comments, instead of just ignoring it. I recently unliked a page because of their refusal to even acknowledge, that men do in fact suffer from family and domestic violence.

What makes you feel grounded? 

Spending some times with my furbabies, they just want love really…Except for the cat, sometimes he just want food and for me to let him in and out of the house (we rent, so we can’t put in a cat flap). Other then them, I love having a shower and/or bath and listen to music that takes me away, like Enya, anything Celtic, anything “mythical”, if that is even a music genre,lol.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

I think I would rather not eat cold food again, although a lot of salads are “cold”…Or are they more neutral? I love having hot food during Winter, it makes me feel warm on the inside, which then radiates through the rest of me. Whereas I don’t really feel like that with cold food, except for maybe ice blocks/ice cream.

Happy Fireworks Day

In a time of uncertainty, uncertainty politics, uncertain employment, i your country even still going to be there tomorrow. Sometimes it’s good to see traditions continue. I wish my American friends and readers a happy Independence Day. On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States.

Please just remember though fireworks can scare your family pets, so please make sure that your pets are securely secured!

Share Your World … Week 19

  1. You win a pet monkey but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair. What would be the trick?Oh, my goodness, what a choice! It’d have to be something to do with when I suffer from my sciatica. It’s hard to get up and down. Maybe if they could just help me to get dress when I’m suffering from it? That would help so much! It gets really frustrating when I am used to getting dressed in 10 minutes and then it suddenly take 30 minutes with no warning.
  2. What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?This might sound a little weird, I’m a casual where I work. So I don’t get set days, but I had a set work today. Sometimes the most caring thing I can do is go to work. I get money that helps me live not a rich life, but one where I can proudly help my family out with bills and food. Plus I am planning on having some junk food when I get home,lol
  3. What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?
    I have to say that lately I have been wearing a lot of Red and it has been such a hit! I remember years ago somebody telling me that Red was my power colour and it’s definitely been proving itself worthwhile!
  4. Complete this sentence:  When I travel I love to….
    Look at the scenery. It’s one of the reasons I want to travel to Rome and Greece, it’s on my bucket list to see all of their ancient travels! I take a lot of photos of the scenery of a place.

Baby Animals <3

BearHug

These last two weeks I have been surrounded with baby animals…The baby Ostriches are now just a little over two weeks and are doing amazingly well! There were a few days there were we all thought that they may have “Fainting Ostrich” syndrome…Which is basically where the new hatchings will not eat or drink and eventually starve to death…THIS DID NOT HAPPEN! =D

For some reason ever since these two lovely little lights of life have come into the world all I have been seeing recently are baby animals everywhere!

With this edition of “Fact Friday” I have decided to add a few pictures and links were you can say all the “Awws” you want to the sweet little baby animals and some interesting sites as well as sites where you can donate and are helpful sites dedicated to saving our wildlife and pets (please click these pictures to get to websites).
