It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

Monday's Look at this Blog

This is today's Blog of Interest .. 

Little Emma English Home

We are having nothing but heavy rain with  more rain expected. I am staying in with my bark, err cough and staying warm and dry. 
Thank heavens I can do this because I have one of , if not The, Best  Husband in the World. 
He tells me to stand by with towels, arms himself with an umbrella and off he and Pup go, into the wind and rain and small rivers running along where gutters are supposed to be, leaping across lakes where corners are supposed to be and into the paved but also muddy park , where Pup has a good ole time, sniffing... what can they smell in  the wet? 
Checking out who has been there and what is going on around him and finally getting down to doing his own business.. Pup is a Water dog .. he loves getting wet. 
His hair (not fur) holds it and when my sodden husband returns, he has this Rastafarian looking thing standing there beside him .. dripping.. waiting to come in .. where Only after his mama has knelt on the floor in front of him with a towel, can he feel free to Shake it all off.

So there you have it .. we all end up getting wet when Pup takes  a rainy day  walk.
Not to mention the kitchen and many towels by the end of the day.

I find myself getting lost in the world of Blogs in Beautiful Places on days like this . 
Places where the sun is shining right now.

This blog is beautiful, charming, full of pretty Things and she takes you to places that are wonderful to read about and look at.
