dog park

It was a good morning. My puppies curled up next to me on the couch as I sipped my coffee. My husband was still sleeping soundly in bed next to the cat. And there was no headache. No headache at all.

With the sun streaming through the window, I felt alive for the first time in weeks. I actually wanted to go outside. How long has it been since I took the dogs for a walk? Months?

When all of us were up and about, my husband and I put on our coats and boots, filled our pockets up with plastic bags, and headed to one of my favourite places - the dog park.

The puppies ran and tumbled, bowed and growled and chased. They looked so happy to be in the sunshine, running freely. I'm holding hands with my love, and feeling absolute joy. This is my family, this is my life. This is what a good life feels like.


  1. Awww, Penelope, sounds very cuddly and scrumptious. What a beautiful day you had to actaully enjoy outside with things you wanted to do and no headaches to boot! Blessings and thank you for sharing!!

  2. What a wonderful way to start things off. I wish we had a dog park around here, we really need one.

  3. Yay! I love the dog park. When I lived I lived in Chicago I used to stand outside the fence and watch the dogs romp around. It was so relaxing.

  4. So glad your headache cleared up!

  5. Sounds like a lovely peaceful day. I'm so happy to hear you had some relief from your headache.
