Fall Events

It’s fall finally, and I’m happy that it has arrived! This is my favorite season. Summer seems to last way too long. Cool weather, colors changing, fall festivals, holidays around the corner – those things make me grateful for autumn.

Houston has several activities planned for October and November. Houstononthecheap.com lists 25+ events to choose from. The fall festival at Calloway’s tomorrow sounds like very much fun for the family with crafts and pumpkins. Pearland Arts & Crafts on the Pavilion is another fun event on this weekend’s agenda. If you’re looking for something to do tomorrow or Sunday, there are several options to choose from.

When you attend any of the fall festivals or children’s events in Houston, take pictures and blog about your experience. Houston Blog Network is accepting blog contributors. If you are interested in becoming a part of a network of bloggers who blog about Houston living, email Houston Blog Network at houstonblognetwork@gmail.com for more information.

 

 

Make a Pet Happy on Change a Pet’s Life Day

Pet Adoption

Adopt a Pet for Your Children

National Change a Pet’s Life Day is Saturday, January 24th. The purpose of this national pet day was to encourage people to adopt homeless pets. It’s hard to resist taking a pet home from an animal shelter.

Visit Your Local Houston Pet Adoption Shelter

I remember the first pet my husband and I ever adopted. Her name was Jenny. She quietly looked up at us with sad huge eyes. We couldn’t resist – and didn’t. Jenny became a part of our family that day. She was the center of attention in our family.

One day I was in the kitchen when Jenny excitedly jumped up at the window. She ran toward the back door and back to the window. Obviously, she wanted me to see something. When I met her at the back door, I looked down to see a squirrel she had killed and brought to me. I praised her, and I’ll never forget how happy she was. She was a pit bull and hound mix and looked and acted more like the hound breed. Jenny added much joy to our family.

This evening two blogger friends and I talked to a lady whose lost dog had been found after four years! A white¬†Bichon Frise, known for their friendliness to strangers, the pet’s chip had brought him back safely to his owner. Amazing after so long.

Pet adoption is not for everyone. If you prefer not to own a pet, there are other ways you can change a pet’s life. Visit an animal shelter and offer a donation of money or pet toys. The shelter will appreciate your donation. If you do decide to adopt when you visit the shelter, you’ll make a pet happy by giving it a home, love, and attention.

I love Christmas – and taking pictures of places I go and people I meet. That’s the reason for the ginormous Christmas photo. It’s a fun time of the year for many. Not so fun for others who have no family nearby or for those who must work during holidays.

Making someone smile by showing genuine interest in them and what they do is part of Christmas. It’s not all about the presents under the tree. It’s about you and me inspiring others. Becoming motivated to be creative.Finding good things to think about and to do – like going to look at Christmas lights.
