This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Do you know someone that is always looking for the good and the positive in each day? I sure do. Fruity is pretty much the most positive and appreciative person I know.
Positivity and appreciation I have found usually go hand in hand and paw in paw.
It’s when i find fault and reason to be negative that I get to my lowest. Here in this Savannah, Georgia place, with all the rain and the bitter cold, it’s going to take a lot of will power to stay pawsitive the next few days. But I have high hopes I can do it. If I get some help.
Help? Yes. I have high hopes that the persons will try and see the good instead of the negative, even though they dislike the cold. You see, traveling has taught me that each place has its own needs.
Different animals and plants do better in different seasons. No where in the world is the same. That’s ok.
Why do we feel the need to complain when things don’t suit us individually the way we want them to? Wouldn’t it be better and kinder to change our circumstances and our location if we can? Wouldn’t it be better to change the location of our attitude instead of bringing others down?
Every day is full of high hopes for Fruity. Hopes of a good breakfast and a good dinner and good snacks. Hopes of love and comfort and warmth are on the list too. Everything in between is just a bonus. Do we see the bonuses?
We may be used to being negative. It’s hard to change. But I have high hopes we can all work on it together.

I know it’s getting colder the next few days, but it won’t last forever. I think it will warm up in less than a week. I’m farther south, but I was looking at the forecast for the eastern half of the US, and especially everything from Maryland southward and from the Atlantic to Texas. We’re expecting a low of below 20 tonight, and below freezing for four consecutive nights, then it will warm up. It’ s forecast to be up to 70 at the end of next week. Meanwhile, I’ve drawn the bathtub full of water (for flushing) because the water will be turned off at the meter in a little while, and probably won’t be turned back on for at least 36 hours, if not 60 to o72 hours. That means sponge baths, and, planning in advance, I washed my hair today. I have plenty of drinking and cooking water, as I buy several gallons of distilled water at a time because that’s what I use in my coffee pot to avoid the mineral residue that clogs the pot. So, as long as you spend most of your time inside in the warmth of the fireplace, you and Fruitycake snuggled up under a blanket or two, this thing will pass and you’ll soon be feeling much warmer when you go outdoors. Walks will resume next week. Hope! That’s all you need. That and Accuweather.
Yes Brickle it is hard to be positive all the time. I have very high anxiety and always seem to assume the worst first. My husband is the opposite so he has to talk me through it. My doggie Crystal the beagle is always happy and positive ❤️🐕🦺🙂🐾🧑🎄🎄
