Why is that when you walk with dogs they have to go potty like 5,000 times? LOL! It’s so hard to actually go on a walk with them. I feel that we are so at odds with each other when we go out on a nice day for a stroll like we did today.
But I re-noticed something walking with our dogs today…they like to sniff. Everything. Multiple times. They go from the left side of the sidewalk to the right side. They see a tree and they want to sniff it (and then pee on it). But oh, the bush over there looks good to check out! And so it goes.
But all I want to do is walk in a straight line. I want to get from point A to point B. I want to get into a nice walking rhythm –– but not them. They want to smell, stop, change direction and bark at everything. It’s not my preference.
But I think that I will try to be more of a dog this Sabbatical year. As I’m working towards my goals this year I shall smell the flowers on both sides of the path as I go. Okay, the dogs aren’t interested in the smell of flowers and I won’t be peeing on the flowers, but I think I will take this little thought into this next year.
The house is looking organized and clean. I’m taking stock of what I have. My voice is returning slowly. Girls are happy. Isaac is provided for. Sunny day. Shabbat dinner is waiting….
Happy Shabbat, World!
