I have been helping at habitat for horses, as if I didn't have enough. I like to read, crochet and play with the grand children. The children come first. I'm the kind of grandma that when the children come in and say "it is a pretty day, lets go to the park" I drop everything and go to the park.

What spare time? I seem to fill it quickly. Prayer Shawl crocheting, volunteering at B.A.R.K. and gardening in the summer.

I can just imagine how hard it is to give one up. I get so attached to my pets. Good luck with it and thank you for being a foster parent.

Pretty soon I will be spending a fair amount of my spare time on our new foster dog! We will be getting a foster in the next week or so, meaning that there will be 4 dogs in our house!! We might be crazy!! But it's such a great way to help! The hardest part is giving the dog up when he finds a home. sigh....

I don't have much spare time, either. I LOVE to travel, but that's an expensive 'hobby' and money is too tight for THAT now. At home, I watch t.v. when my hubby is home and usually surf the net while we watch. When I'm alone, I like to cook and bake and, of course, spend time with my furry family!

Thank you everyone so much for your kind words about my poem!

Here is another one I wrote after the rescue league I volunteer with took in 19 dogs that were being hoarded by a man who lived in Maine. As you can imagine, the dogs were living in horrible conditions. Many of the B.O.N.E.S. volunteers helped in a massive all-day transport to get every dog from Maine to their foster home. My husband and I drove several legs and saw many of these poor little sweethearts. I am happy to report that they all are in loving homes now and doing wonderful!

Relay the Beagles

They rode on laps
or on soft blankets in backseats.
They leaned toward or away from caresses.
They slept or kept vigilant.

We cried or choked back tears.
We felt like cursing, and we prayed.
We all knew what was most important,
and we tried to show it with every word and gesture.

It would be all right now.
From now on, there would only be love.

They must have been able sense it,
with their clever noses and ears,
to hear the tenderness in words they couldn’t understand,
to smell the concern on our skin.

And so we passed them along, gently,
each of us leaving our fingerprints
on coarse, dull fur,
to blot out the misery,
until every part of them,
had been touched with love,
and they could start again.



Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of your life, keep peace in your soul. - Max Ehrmann

Kendra, I loved your poem, it brought tears to my eyes. I could just imagine what a scary situation that must have been for you and your family.

You have a great writing talent, would love to read more of your poems, if you want to share them, of course :)

I love the poem Kendra and I know how both you and Patty feel, I have epilepsy too and those seizures aren't fun so I can imagine what the pets feel like.

I also seen one of my kitties have a seizure once, earlier this year, Carbon Copy. I got up in the morning & went downstairs. CC was on the floor on his side and my first thought was is he dead? Then I noticed his shaking and the eyes and spit coming from his mouth. I started panicing and raced upstairs to get dressed to take him to the vet all the while going up and down stairs checking on him in various stages of dressing. When I went down the last time to check on him he wasn't there or any where I could see right away. Then he comes from under the desk as if nothing happened. Then it dawned on me, he had a seizure. That was the only one he ever had. That is truly a scary sight.

Glad Patty is fine and doing better on the meds. It's a pain taking them though. But it helps. Good thing your vet was open at the time, mine wasn't for at least another hour when it happened. Tummy rubs to a brave furry friend. And good thinking for you and hubby, sweet parents.

And of course, I love to watch my dogs do zany and adorable things! Just this morning, my Patty got herself tangled in the bra that I had left hanging on the bedpost. She got one strap caught around her middle and was stuck. But in true Patty fashion, she just waited there patiently until I got her untangled!! She never makes a fuss!! I remember one time she was lying down on our bed and she rolled over onto her back and slid down between the mattress and footboard. She didn't make a peep!!!! My husband saw it happen and rescued her, but I swear that if no one saw it happen she would just wait there, not whine or bark or anything, until someone fixed it!!!

I love to write in my spare time. In fact, here's a poem I wrote for my Patty-Poocha after we found out she had epilepsy.

The First Seizure

We didn’t know what to do
the first time you started to shake.
We thought maybe you were cold
so we wrapped you in a blanket
and hugged you.

Then we saw your eyes,
they were dull and unseeing,
as if a heavy curtain had dropped behind them,
to conceal the secret activities of your brain.
You wouldn’t respond to your name.

We thought you were dying
so we rushed you to the vet.

By the time we arrived
you were back behind your eyes again
looking dazed and tired, but otherwise fine.
And while you explored the vet’s waiting room,
we tried to convince our hearts to slow their hammering.

Our Patty Pooch, our Little Sweetheart
Our Sleepy Little Beagle-Basset!
It’s only taken a week for you to
embroider yourself into our lives.
Would we be going home without you?
What could be wrong?

The three of us did go home together,
with a prescription,
and a new word to describe you.
You have epilepsy,
and now we know what to do
when your nerves begin misfiring
and the curtain drops behind your eyes.
We create a safe, calm place,
speak soothingly, pat you gently,
and wait for the curtain to rise,
and the next act to begin.


Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of your life, keep peace in your soul. - Max Ehrmann

Cindi that is awesome, I am so proud of you. I've lost about 25 but kind of at a stand still right now. We are at our mountain cabin in No. Ga. for another week so when I get back to Fl. I will be more strict. At least I haven't gained any back and that is definitely a VICTORY for me!!!!!

Now that I have help on the team, I'm going to concentrate more on getting stuff done for the craft show. Done all my fall towels, just have to get the Christmas ones done then go back to making a few potholders again.

The craft room is on hold, again, indefinitely. With still paying off my hospital bill from foot surgery, dr bill, and now vet bills-which have to be paid in full, things are tight. Maybe I can set my goal for Christmas for the craft room????

Cool, another computer "geek" we need you to help our resident CG is she doesn't know the answer! What kind of books do you read? I would like to start some flowers but the weather here is crazy and cold. And another crafter, sweet!

Shop, go for walks. I don't really have hobbies, but I usually can find things to keep me busy. With the weather warming up, I like to plant flowers and take care of the gardens.

Try anything once. Or pick a craft that doesn't take a lot of time, maybe crochet. I love doing that while watching T.V. And you can make fun things! Make some money off fellow students making scarves, hats, fridgies or since you're in college, beer can holders!! No offense to you about the beer thing. I just know the guys are physcho.

In my spare time I do the things I listed on the hobby page. But my absolute favorite is when we go to our no. ga. mtn cabin, I love to sit on the porch with my book and coffee, tea, coke etc. and read while also watching the birds and an occasional deer. Last winter we had a bear visit, can't say as I liked that.

I also like to knit or crochet. emoticon emoticon

Spare time?? Who has time for that?? emoticon

My biggest 'hobby' is volunteering for a dog rescue group. I foster 3 dogs, transport dogs, work adoption applications. Then I take care of all the dogs (7 total with the fosters), play ball with them, then there's bicycling, walking/hiking, traveling when I can,reading when I can catch a few moments ... I used to do counted cross-stitch but haven't picked that up in years. I'm not very talented when it comes to crafts.
Oh, and of course, I enjoy spending time with my family!

It hard to list everything. Kat, I'm with you on the sports. My kitties and gardening take up most of my time and, of course, sparking. I will be volunteering to help place kitties in homes - start that on May 8th.
I am also the extra pair of hands at the food cupboard.

I'd love to volunteer at shelters too, but they are all so far away :( And I don't have a driver's license.
I love to read in the bathtub, playing and walking with Nelly, sewing, knitting, music, running, and I love to bake :)

I can't do the volunteer work you do Em with being a carer.

I love to paint, knit, read, listen to music, I love ambient and world music and Linkin Park. Since the fires I've really got into gardening and landscaping. I do all the handyman stuff at home and some of my best presents are things like saws and drills etc. I also love to cook and be on the computer.

And I have major verbal diarrhea

Peace and long life - Jules

Here's alittle something we all like to have more of...Spare time. For me I love to read, hobbies, or one thing I'd like to try to do is volunteer again at a shelter. I miss that though I know the knees don't. But with summer coming up, I know the shelters will need all the extra help they can get. Besides it'll be great exercise for both me and the dogs going for walks. That was always my favorite thing, walking the dogs. They need that more than me. Spending quality time outside in the fresh air stretching their legs.

This is just a few of the things I like to do. So, what about you guys... emoticon emoticon
