Every year, just like many other people, I make a list of my new year’s resolution to tackle, but this year, surprisingly even to me, I failed to do so. Instead, I decided to do things I’ve been meaning to do for a while and unlike past years, 2014, although today is only January 4th, is proving to be quite fulfilling. The first thing I addressed was continuing with Alex’s training and small walks. How’s she doing? Better every day.
The second thing I’ve been meaning to do is to take care of a plant and not kill it like I’ve done in the past. With that in mind, Cynthia gave me a beautiful white Orchid for my birthday that I named Snowflake. Yes, I name them because in my mind it makes me more responsible, and between you and me, I think its working. A week later, we went and got another Orchid, the one featured in the above picture, that I named Lilly. A month has gone by and they are both doing great and thriving.
And the last thing I’ve been meaning to do for a while was to foster a dog. Cynthia and I finally went to the shelter in Baltimore, BARCS, yesterday, Friday, and picked a dog to foster. This picture I took yesterday, a couple of minutes after we got home, but I stopped right away because she seemed afraid of a lot of things and I did not want to frighten her. To our surprise she slept soundly, actually she snored, and ate all her dinner last night, followed by a breakfast I could have sworn she inhaled this morning.
I’d venture to say that this is a nice way to start 2014, don’t you think? Have a great weekend.
