Day 263 – LSS Attitude of Gratitude – Blog/#SoCS for-fore-four – There is always something to be grateful for.

screen-shot-2019-01-19-at-1.53.56-pm-1Linda Hill’s stream of consciousness makes my Saturday blog different than my norm.  It means instead of focusing on what repeatedly popped in my head, I need to focus on what popped in my head from her topic. A subtle difference but one I enjoy. 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you want. Bonus points for using all three. Enjoy!

As is my usual goal I attempt to join my blog topic with her parameters. 

I was waiting for Annie to give her a bath today. She decided to play in the area I had painted again. I thought she had paint on all four of her limbs, but happily the fore legs were not dotted with white paint. I adore our four legged furbaby. She brings such joy to my life. She is well behaved, most of the time. She loves attention as done any dog. She always wants to be wherever her people are. She has a bed in almost all the rooms in our house. The only time Annie is allowed up on the furniture is outside. She likes to sit on the swing when anyone is there. But of course, her rules still apply. She must be petted at every moment.

I am grateful we rehomed this little mixed breed. Before her, we had Brittany Spaniels as our last many rescue dogs. I am grateful that she is such a good bark dog. She always lets me know if someone is near. I am grateful she dislikes the squirrels as much as I do. Perhaps with her help,  we will actually get to eat some of the pomegranates off our tree this year. I am grateful she has caught a few critters. I am not as grateful that she likes to bring them to us as a present.

I am grateful for the opportunity to join in the SoCS blog challenge.  If you would like to join in the Saturday challenge, saunter over to Linda’s blog to see all the guidelines. I always try to read as many other blogs as I can. Usually the variety of interpretations are so varied.
