So I read my horoscope this morning..

Friday, March 01, 2013

And this is what it said:

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

You now have the necessary tools to create enough stability in your life that you can balance your need for fun with your desire to go the distance and reach your destination. It's as if you're preparing for a marathon because you're in it for the long haul and not just a sprint. But don't give anyone the power to talk you out of your view of reality. Ultimately, you're running your own race; it's your choice and no one else's. Trust your feelings and act on them with confidence.


Whether or not you believe in horoscopes, you must admit seeing a message like that directed at you would likely help bolster your determination to do things your way to reach your goals.
I'm taking it and running with it!

Bub and I went for another run last night. When we started, it was not raining. After the first mile, it was misting/drizzling, so I looped back by the house to drop him off with Bill. Bill, however, was still out with Maggie and Millie (and the house was locked) so I popped Bub a treat and we took off again. He finished the 3 miles with me, and went from a creamy white dog to a road-grimed gray dog.

We toweled off, warmed up, and had dinner. Bill made yummy bbq-pulled-pork enchiladas. They were really good! I have another one for lunch today.

Bub will get tomorrow off while I go for 5-6 miles. I'd prefer 6, but we'll see how I'm feeling. I'm a bit off my schedule but I should be able to correct and finagle enough to get back on track.

I'm finding myself more and more engaged in the Humane Society world, and not just because I want to bring home one out of every five animals. Like this one!


That little girl came in with her littermates and is just adorable. Bill went to meet some of them and offered to put a hold on one so Bub could meet them, but I waved him off. We may be adding another four-legger to the family later in April so it's just not sensible to add another one right now.

Tempting, but not logical.
I still emoticon her very much. Her and Heavenly.


Heavenly's picture does not even do her justice. She's one of the Brooks rescue dogs and is a total lovebug and snugglebunny. She would not get along with my other dogs, and that's why she's not coming home with me.

YOU however, if you're looking for an active companion should consider her - and by YOU I mean my friends here in the Portland/Vancouver area.

See? I diverged off onto a kennel kids tangent again. Sorry.

I'm eating healthy today.
I'm getting my steps in today.
I'm going to train Julian later today.


Last one, sorry, swear.
Until next time at least....

    Such cute pups! Alas... I'm too far away to be of any help.

    I see the universe is sending you signs too. Let's take them and run with it girlfriend! Woo hoo!

    Oh my gosh. They are adorable. LOL, can you hear my DH saying "back away from the dog pictures!" Sigh! He knows me too well.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Oh all dos babies of yours! I need to do something like that. Hopefully when we're back from OR in May, I can get involved fostering kitties for the RSPCA.

    LOVE your horoscope. WOW! I rarely notice or read them either but I'm going to have to look for mine to see if I get some equally special advice.
    [You don't know it, but I left to find my h-scope and came back. I didn't know where to find it so I googled it and I ended up with two completely conflicting scopes. Not everyone can have such a fitting h-scope as Candy! ]

    WOO HOO! On your runs with Bub and without! Love to hear about you burning pavement!

    And I want to bring home that first dog too! But no more than two furry friends in our house at a time! Our little Terrier is the equivalent of at least 3 dogs and 2 of the three aren't even nice. LOL!

    Have a good rest of your day and weekend too!

    Keep up the puppy love! That horoscope speaks volumes whether I believe in them or not.

    Oh my goodness... what a great message in your horoscope.

    and as for the doggy pictures you shared... too cute!! (I especially like the first picture) our house feels rather empty now. Sure we have Sadie (the caique parrot), but no fur-babies at the moment. I like dogs but with us working and our townhouse, we're better suited to cats... maybe one day.

    I like " you're in it for the long haul.... But don't give anyone the power to talk you out of your view of reality. Ultimately, you're running your own race; it's your choice and no one else's. Trust your feelings and act on them with confidence. "

    But I love the puppies! emoticon emoticon

    You're killing me with the cute doggies!

    We want one so. stinking. bad. But it would be mean to keep it locked up in our tiny apartment. Hopefully in 2 years we'll have a house, and can get at least one dog. We shall see!

    I love them all! Not sure Toby would but hey, he shouldn't get a vote. LOL

    Keep going on your goals!

    Love the pup pics--you never know who might see and fall instantly in love so they find their forever homes, nothing wrong with that.


    I don't put stock in horoscopes, but that one is right on the money for you, Candy. You do have all the tools it takes to find balance in your life and reach for your goals. Way to go on getting out there and continuing on even in the drizzle. That's the reality of running outside in the beautiful Northwest: wet happens. You go, girl!
