Mid-Week Melody

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have chosen for this post are:

Cat Mate Pet Drinking Fountain

Bewitched - No, Tabitha!

How to Build an Outdoor Zen Garden Water Fountain


Heartwarming:  This Friendly Fish and a Japanese Diver are Best Friends for 25 Years


For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

The first to apologize is the bravest.  The first to forgive is the strongest.  The first to forget is the happiest.


We're so distracted regretting what has already passed or stressing about what may never come...that we overlook the priceless goodness present in our lives this very moment.  What a delight it is to breathe the air, to see the sky, to touch the grass, to hear the birds sing, to taste a juicy fruit.


Can you drop trying to solve your life story for a moment, and enjoy being alive?  Can you feel your heartbeat this second?  Can you feel the air going in and out of your lungs?  :)


I wish Noah had swatted those mosquitoes.  :)














Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  18. We have a different kind of cat fountain for our kitties, but they love the thing. Now they won't drink out of a regular bowl; they put their paws in it and spill the water all over! :) Did you see the latest "Bewitched" movie? I think I bought it but we haven't watched it yet. I didn't much care for the original version! You got some super quotes from Karen S. today, and she's right on. We often obsess so much about the past that we forget to live in the moment. Love the Canadian thing again and the Noah myth takes place in the middle east - perhaps there were no mosquitoes there?

  19. Once again, I love today's "Meanwhile in Canada" meme!

  20. I'm sure mosquitoes must serve some purpose in the greater scheme of things... but I can't see what!

  21. Very interesting videos. The quotes were great as was the art work. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  22. Wow, the friendship between fish and diver is wonderful!
    LOL at Meanwhile in Canada - I totally agree :-)

  23. Our neighbor's have a beautiful fountain in their backyard; I enjoy it from our 2nd floor deck, but someday I'd like to have my own. We purchased a cat fountain many years ago; neither paid it any attention. Am hesitant to try again, as much as I want them to drink! So...I add filtered water to their canned food!

  42. That is such a neat drinking fountain, a very clever idea. It was fun watching the Betwitched video. I loved that show and watched many episodes. I also enjoyed the fountain tutorial. They make it look so easy. A sweet video between the diver and the fish. Love that one especially. I always enjoy the artwork and the wise words with their pretty illustrations. Another wonderful post Linda. Thank you for putting them together. Happy day to you my friend.
