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.

To yours truly, gardening is very therapeutic

Apprehensive

Have you ever felt that way when you had something important to face?

I most recently experienced this anxiety this morning, as I planned to close my doctoral survey this weekend to run my statistics and start analyzing my results for my dissertation. When I was about to pray the Rosary (Joyful Mysteries on which to meditate today on Saturday), I tried to calm my overwhelming sense of a ton of bricks falling on me and my sudden urge to purge those aforementioned bricks…

Then Angelic Annie approached me and snuggled up against my right side!

Angelic Annie

Face of an Angel: To the ♫tune♪ of Hinder’s Lips of an Angel♫

Therefore, she most certainly is my Right-Hand Cat!

PURRfect Annie

Although Annie‘s not verbal, she’s most definitely vocal!

As I prayed, she purred!

During times like these, I’ve previously turned to other people who I’ve trusted or terminal degree grads, but I don’t want to burden anyone, even if they’ve joined #TeamDrDISPO … This time, I’ve reflected back on similar situations when I’ve overcome this apprehension:

At this point, I must allow my go-getter attitude to prevail, as it’s led me to what I consider the greatest feeling:

A sense of

  • Accomplishment
  • Achievement
  • Completion

Based on

  • Ambitions
  • Aspirations
  • Confidence

Here’s Angel Annie‘s and my theme song ~ ♪I Can Only Imagine♫ ~ by ♫Mercy Me♪, who performed in the Valley the weekend when she found me/I rescued her!

Fitness Friday: Bunny Buddy

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!

Angelic Annie is the prayerful† pet ~ reverent with our Rosary!


This glow-in-the-dark Rosary goes well with reverent Angelic Annie‘s green eyes ^_^

Last Memorial Day🇺🇸 weekend, I longed to stay home🏡 and relax with my Double A😻 ~ to play and pray✌ ~ before teaching this summer☼ and my work trips🚘 slated for next month!

 
To kick it off, my bestie‘s family held Mass💒 at their new blessed 🏠home! Her always generous mom was sweet🍭 enough not just for the food🍛 that she cooked🍗 and baked🎂 for their guests, but also for sending me home with plenty of leftovers🍱 and one of the beautiful flower💐 center pieces! 

  
Before I followed in my mom’s lead by bringing them to the 🙏Virgin … 

 
        

… My 🐱girls🐯 and I enjoyed 🌺them, and I made the most out of my QT with my ♥cuties! K&K‘s💪 FFF book📖 (2015) cited research🔬 from 📙Journal of Evolutionary Psychology that revealed how fresh flowers🌷 provoke 🌻joy!

 
        

FYI: Due to my the heavy load ahead for my remaining dissertation🎓 work ahead, I may not post📓 on here as much. Best wishes of blessings† to all who stay in my loop📳 as I deliver the scoop🍦 … and I seek y’all to please send good vibes☺️ and lift yours truly in ☝prayer, thank y’all!

TGIF! April Showers with a Chance of … Scrambled Eggs ✌

From ☼sunny☼ to stormy, I’m honestly relieved to sleep in on this rainy day because we all need downtime (something that I took for granted and recently realized is a necessity in order to thrive and survive).

Before I made myself this brunch:

Grilled Cheese Garlic French / Texas Toast: French Toast with egg wash (Almond Breeze Coconut Milk blend with cage free egg scrambled) * grilled cheese (Kraft Colby Jack marbled Big Slice) * garlic garnish (McCormick Perfect Pinch Garlic & Herb) for Texas Toast

♪Gotta have coffee♫ … I dig those days when I’m can drink from my mug at home instead of taking my tumbler on-the-go!

I also fixed my family theirs:

Sharing is a skill!

Simple and Savory is the Flavor of this Friday!

Final note: good thing that we chowed down our hearty meals before the heavy hail hit! I saw our neighbor cat sprint across the front yard to safe shelter!

🌞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!

Annie does purr

As I stroke her fur

Vocal Anne may have sharp claws

Yet she does biscuits with her paws

They both can be sweet

So going home to them is a treat.
