Happy Cat, Happy Dog

The animals are delighted to have us home. In particular, Sophia has become my shadow. She’s either on me or sleeping right next to me every second I am at home. Although she looks totally relaxed and asleep, if I were to leave the room she would follow.


Charlie is a bit more aloof, but he also sticks close. He pretends to be disinterested and then starts begging for treats.


Elly is perhaps the happiest animal. She loves having her routines like breakfast at curbside cafe resume. After breakfast, she always gets a treat — a bit of egg, banana, or something else. Given her preference, she would choose bacon every time. Tomatos are OK, but never eaten if there is the possibility of something better.



Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
