Joy! Wa-hoo! Today’s the day! Buzzing with excitement We’re celebrating indoors today! My owner created a scavenger hunt for me She hid some delectable treats throughout the house Pop a tunnel of floating bubbles along the way Canine peanut butter, vanilla cookie treats Await me at the end of the obstacle An excursion to the back patio Fetching a squeaky ball My owner loves me No fireworks Tender Care
I hope everyone is well and healthy! Hence, the reason for my orange filled banner to encourage people to take care of their immune systems. 🙂
I want to apologize for my late blog posts for the A2Z challenge. I’m currently coping with the death of a friend who I had a real deep, caring connection with. For those of you who understands how that feels, it can be quite an emotional roller coaster. I’ve been sleeping and resting after being thrashed around by my feelings, memories, and thoughts.
Yet, I can just imagine him telling me, “Sa, hike with me. The beauty will surely make you feel better.” I will miss him dearly.
Imagine my smile when I woke up from my melancholic slumber to find a nomination in my inbox for The Real Neat Blog Award. This is actually the first time I’ve been nominated for this particular award. Thank you kindly James!
James has published a few books and possesses an otherworldly sort of imagination. One of the titles to his book, “The Haunting of a Marcasite“, surely has me intrigued. Stop by his blog for an interesting read and step into another world of memorable characters!

What is your favorite place to get away to? There are so many beautiful places in the world that I would like to visit, but I can only speak to places I’ve been to. There’s physical places where I’ve only visited once in my life.
Like… Ha Long Bay in Vietnam. Visited this wondrous place 11 years ago and its natural beauty astounded me as the captain navigated our boat between the rocks. I was in awe and wanted everyone I knew to experience this with me.
Right now, in the midst of this “self-quarantine”, my favorite place to get away to is here on my blog as I drink a good cup of tea. I’ll be working on my challenges today and check out the worlds of other A2Z participants!
If, you choose to become a famous actor or screen writer? What would you choose? I’ve really enjoy memorizing lines and acting in theater plays. I relish the idea of performing on stage playing a role and entering the mind of another character. Even though I enjoy creative writing on a small scale, I never really thought of screen writing before. Acting feels instinctual to me whereas writing requires a lot more work to imagine an extensive and cohesive plot line. I’ve known a lot of people who were highly skilled in it though. We tend to work together quite often!
What is your favorite holiday ? Why ? It’s difficult for me to choose as it’s split between traditional and non-traditional holidays. There seems to be a holiday for anything and everything. There are some “holidays” that I celebrate everyday.
That being said, I’ve celebrated many holidays with friends and family. I enjoy the big, traditional holidays as they allow me to reconnect with loved ones such Christmas, Thanksgiving, Lunar New Year. However, I’ve had some very meaningful, quieter moments celebrating Passover, Veterans Day, Palm Sunday and Lent.
I also like World Water Day, Earth Day, Random Acts of Kindness, National Comic Book Day, and May the 4th be with You.
Ice skates or Rollerblade? Ah! I love both equally. I have great memories for ice skating and rollerblading!
Style is that which indicates how the writer takes himself and what he is saying. It is the mind skating circles around itself as it moves forward.
What are your favorite toppings to put a pizza ? Pineapple, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, black olives
A strawberry milkshake or a vanilla milkshake ? Strawberry milkshake! I love strawberries! I found out that my birthday lands on National Pick Strawberries Day. 😉
What is the funniest show you have ever seen ? Movie wise I kept laughing throughout “O Brother, Where Art Thou” & “Miss Congeniality”!
As for TV shows, it’s difficult for me to choose! There’s funny shows that I think I can only watch once like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Big Bang Theory, & Malcolm in the Middle. There’s other shows that I can watch more than once like How I Met Your Mother, Simpsons, or Gilmore Girls.
America on Coffee: Coffee shops have been near and dear to my heart. I love the random assortment of music and shows that are shared.
Kate @ Holistic Life by Kate: Beautifully designed site, chock-full of mindful resources to help others live a better life.
Dr.Tanya @ Salted Caramel: The positive & sound advice she gives is a beacon of light. I appreciate her wisdom. She hosts “Blogging Insights Series” and shares great pointers.
