Watching

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever felt like someone is watching?


I looked out my window but didn’t see anyone!
Then I looked out my front door,
Then I looked out my back door,
I’m really, really getting nervous!

Hmm! I decided to make myself a cup of tea and write down why someone would be watching me.

I almost fell off my chair. So you are the one.

Have a great day! Hope

Inari Fox

Hi Everyone!

Isn’t this little guy cute? He’s called an Inari Fox.
They come from Japan and have they are so cute!

Look at those big eyes. You just want to hug this little creature.
These little guys don’t have to be pampered to much like other foxes.

The fox (known as “Kitsune”, pronounced as keh-tsu-ne) is part of the culture and the Inari-fox is the epitome of good foxes, all bad foxes are scared of it.
Inari is a god known to protect rice cultivation and is worshiped by merchants and tradesmen, Inari, according to Shinto beliefs, is the son of the storm god, Susanoo.
The foxes are the messengers of Inari and at Inari Shrines, outside are orange shrines torii gates and red inari shrines. So, it’s important to know that the fox is not a god but a messenger of Inari.

But it’s important to note that in Shinto belief, foxes are either malevolent or benevolent.  And there are youkai foxes that are evil and are kitsune fox demons.  There is some belief that there are foxes that are demon foxes, foxes that try to entice people to do bad things.

Bored

Hi Everyone!

Bored?
Hmm bored??
Me bored???
Wow! Bored????

Bored – first meaning I found was make a hole. That is not a meaning I was looking for.
Then I switch to Thesaurus meaning “world weary” bored with life, strolled through a museum with a bored air.
Not showing any type of interest whereever you go – movie, baseball game, football game, soccer, basketball, dinner with friends.

For some reason when I’m writing my blog I think to myself;
Hope your blogs are really, really boring sometimes.
Hope you need to stir up your writing, people are falling asleep.

Zzzzzzzzz. Sorry I knotted off there!
Will have to continue another day.

Have a great day! Hope

Accolade

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations to all who have made someone smile!
Bravo to all who have saved animals safe!
Thank you to all who give their time for assisting elders!
A salute all who serve and protect their country.

Remember it’s the little things that matter in this world believe it or not.
To me it was the smile my aunt gave me when I got off the elevator to see her at the nursing home. That was my accolade!!
She would laugh at all the bags I had on my cart. I learned to carry everything when I went there. You just never know when her TV remote needed batteries. The ladies would be wondering if I brought any goodies. Did I?

Intoxicate

Hi Everyone! undefined

I believe most people think “intoxicate” means people are on highs from alcohol or drugs.

Me I think of “intoxicate” as feelings, scents, smells, adventures;
love,
friendships,
scent of blooming flowers in the Spring,
scent of ocean, sea, river,

scent of fresh baked pie,
scent of new perfume,
riding in air balloon,
the hunch you felt was true,

reading a fantastic book,
watching a fantastic movie like Marvel’s Ragnorak.

  • Think positive!
  • There is so much out there. Is it easy to find? Not always.
  • Is it easy to do? Not always.
    • Think positive!

Have a great day! Hope

Nonpareil

Hi Everyone!

Wow! Doesn’t that cake look delicious? I wonder how the chef made it? Even if you would ask they do not give away their secret ingredients.

The word “nonpareil” did not start out as a cooking, baking word. It started way back in French as “not equal”. Pareil comes from a “Vulgar Latin” form word “par” which means “equal”. Then “nonpareil” back in the 15th century became an adjective, then in the 16th century it became a noun as a individual of “unequaled excellance”.
Then finally we get to the good, delicious part of “nonpareil” candy. It’s chocolate with white sugar pellets on it.

“Nonpareils” are not just used on candy. They are also used on cookies, pretzels, cake decorations, ice cream.


I have to sign off now. I’m on a sugar high!

Have a great day! Hope

Capybara

Hi Everyone!

Abby: Hi Dot! Have you seen Hope’s new pet?
Dot: She has a new pet and I wonder how Milo is getting along with the new?? Abby what is the pet’s name?

Abby: You will find out soon. Here comes Hope & Maxie.
Dot: Ahh! It’s not a cat, or dog, or rabbit, or horse, or donkey. What the heck?
Hope: Hi Abby & Dot! I want you to meet Maxie. Isn’t she cute?

Dot: I’ll give you my answer once I know what it is.
Abby: I agree.
Hope: Oh My Gosh! You two (2) are tweedles. Maxie is a “Capybara“. She is one of the friendly animals on earth. All other animals love “Capybara”.

First of all these animals are very social and often live in groups of 10-20 individuals. This lovable creature is the largest rodent in the world, growing to a size of up to 134cm and weighing up to 66kg. Native to South America, capybara’s are semi-aquatic mammals that prefer to live near bodies of water; in fact, they are excellent swimmers, can avoid predators by staying submerged for up to 5 minutes, and mate only in water.

Have a great day! Hope
