Not only must I keep up with myself, I have to make sure that I take care of my little ones at home!

Aside from regular medical maintenance

I also keep up with A&A‘s grooming

  • bathing / showering
  • brushing and wiping

IMG_9093Since I taught in South Texas away from my Double A-Team last ☼summer☼, I returned to three hairballs from Sweet Annie

And I finally was able to remove her last one last month!

The key to my Pretty Kitties‘ beauty is

to make this a fun, rewarding and purrfect experience for them

Now that they’ve burned calories to consume calories: time for catnip!

What do you think of Pope Francis‘ Laudato Si environmental encyclical?

Praise Be His creation!

I’m taking full advantage of taking care of my share of †GOD’s† ☼creations☼ and creatures this weekend!

Following a long week filled with grading speeches and continuing my doctoral dissertation data processing, I beat the heat before today’s rain hit to tend to the garden.

When I lived in the 🌅Bay🌉 Area, home to Western Conference Champions, the Golden State Warriors, who beat Eastern Conference Champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers, in last night’s 🏀NBA Finals🏆 Game 1, I actually had friends who walked their 🐈cats {Happy Belated Hug-Your-Cat😻 Day yesterday, by the way}

 
This morning, I joined Mami Aya and Coco 🐰Bunny🐇 on their 🐾walk! #QTwithThisCutie

 


Since my mom’s taking care of my sis’ Yorkie, they’ve been 👣walking👟 everyday, and I made a point to join them this time around!



We went to my Bestie’s 🏡house🏠 now that we’re neighbors, so Coco made friends with the Cake🎂 and Cookie🍪 Corgies: Twinkie and Oreo!

 

One of my buddies also 🏁rolled🚗 by…

 
 … And we proceeded with 🚦caution🚥 as we approached this 🐍snake!

 

Since I haven’t exercised much 🌳outdoors🌴 this 🍀spring🌷 due to my 😰sickness, I shoot to login more miles this 🌞summer🌼 little by little again!

Manny Monday: Fight, 4th, Cinco, Nurses & Moms

Happy May the 4th be with You!

Princess Elaina

Monday’s multiple feature is about May days …

  • First, I traveled to SA for school and to meet with my esés for the game and fight*
Pinoy Pride

Pinoy Pride

*My remarks about Manny:

  • He has way more going on in his life than just being a fighter:
  1. He lives by his faith
  2. He is a hero to his family and my native country due to
  • his generosity from his earnings and
  • his political career

… while Fighter is the only identity that Floyd Mayweather has achieved:

  1. Professionally, obviously
  2. Personally ~ considering his history of violence

This self-proclaimed $Money$ was in it for

  • The title and to remain undefeated
  • $elfishly keeping his winnings

 

  • Before and after my trip back home, I had to celebrate May the Fourth be with You

🌞Everyday, I greet👋 GOD☝️ as soon as I 😵awake😲 and right before I go to 😴sleep💤 plus any moment in between. As I welcome His presence by opening my window 🌅shades🌇 to bring in the 🌈sunlight☀️, I simply pray🙏

This is the day the LORD has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Sweet Annie

I love to wake up to Sweet Annie from slumber and cat naps! 😻

Then throughout the day, I’ll pray before 💻working🎤, 🍕eating🍧 and 🚘traveling✈️. Prior to 🍱meals🍮, I have series of prayer💒 cards, yet I have a couple that are short and sweet…

Quick Picnic

I packed this picnic real quick for after my Holy Hour. 💝

GOD is good, GOD is great.
Let us thank Him for this food. AMEN.

Bro Joe

Add to the mix more fruit and goodies from my CHRIST Bro Joe! 🍎🍊🍌

  • Also, another traditional one:

Bless us O LORD, for these thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through CHRIST our LORD. AMEN.

Pano Park POV

Panoramic Park POV 🌳

  • Following the 🍜feast🍰, I also pray:

We give thee thanks to the Almighty GOD, who lives and reigns forever, and to the souls of the faithful departed, Rest In Peace. AMEN.

Groundhog Day

Our Groundhog pal also approached us for apples! 🐒

Once I’m about to hit the 🌆sack🌄, my bedtime prayers include the 🌹Rosary💍 and these from my childhood:

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the LORD, my soul to keep…

  • Guide me, JESUS, through the night, and wake me with the morning light. AMEN. 
  • If I should die before I wake, I pray the LORD, my soul to take. AMEN.

Thank you for another blessed day, LORD!

Since today’s snow day reminds me of the holidays, how about I show off the dogs who I’ve professionally photographed for season’s greetings?

First, I was fortunate to have two well-behaved French poodles of my doctor friend ~ with Kool-aid smiles!

Prada and Dior

Then, I took (many takes later) my sister‘s family’s card pic, complete with her Yorkshire terrier*!
