I’ve Been Pebbled! :)

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.

Yes, I’ve been Pebbled. This gorgeous little imp who came into our lives last August has stolen our hearts, and the hearts of all who see her. And she is not shy about flaunting her cuteness. No; she insists on flirting with all.


To remind my readers: Back in August 2017, The C.C. advised there would be an addition to our family in the guise of a Papillon puppy-dog. To say I was surprised would be an understatement. However, within one week she was ours. Her kennel name; ‘Eternal Flame’ didn’t really suit this little bundle of energy and sweetness, so we called her, Miss Fidget.

Now this was not and is not a respectable name for any little self respecting puppy-dog! But, try as we may, her ‘real’ name eluded us!

Then, some time later, in October, they (The C.C.) informed me that whenever I felt bored I could sit and ponder and would be given…  Well, I’ll just quote them here:

“To circumnavigate this boredom we have given our dearest the means to overcome, yes indeed. We have given our dearest the means to explore newness in the form of fantasy; a fantasy that bespeaks of reality. We shall explain:

Our dearest is clairvoyant. That is to say; the future, to some extent, is known to her. However, we shall allow our dearest to know the future of all things. Our dearest only need sit and contemplate and the future shall be given.”


Guess what the first thing was I wanted to know?  You guessed it: It was Miss Fidget’s ‘proper’ name; the one meant just for her. I am very pleased to introduce:

❤  Pebble  ❤

our most recent (and cutest) addition to our family.


And who, with her trusty sidekick, Big Beau; fight a never ending battle for the best morsels of food, the softest turf in the yard, and the hearts of every single human being alike.


Yes, her name is ‘Pebble’ (formerly, & on occasion still: Miss Fidget).

2. Do you have a kind of ritual when you wake up?

Oh, this is so boring, so sorry, but, my morning routine is so ordinary. I just know I have to tell the truth… Here goes…


I kiss my man, get up, walk into the puppy-dog’s room, give them both pats and smiles, then walk around the house opening all the blinds and some windows; walk back through the puppy-dog’s room, give them more pats and smiles, watch as they slowly stretch to greet the day, and think how wonderful it is to have sleepy puppy-dogs to love, and be loved by. Kiss my man again, and what comes next is nobody’s business but mine…     😉  😉


3. What makes you happy?

Being loved, loving, having lunch with my beautiful daughter  ❤

Just Because I Like It!

Manha de Carnaval 

Elizete Cardoso

Listen and Enjoy the wonderful Brasilian vocalist, Elizete Cardoso as she sings Manha de Carnaval (Morning of the Carnival) from the 1959 film ‘Orfeu Negro’ (Black Orpheus). A haunting, tender song written and composed by Luiz Bonfa and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

English Lyrics

I’ll sing to the sun in the sky,

I’ll sing while the sun rises high,

Carnival time is here,

Magical time of year,

Black OrpheusOrfeu_Negro,_1959
Poster by Helmuth Ellgaard for the German release of the film.

And as the time draws near,

Dreams lift my heart!


I’ll sing while I play my guitar,

I’ll cling to this dream from afar,

Will true love come my way,

On this Carnival day,

Or will love stay in my heart?


Will true love come my way,

On this Carnival day,

Or will I be alone with my dream?

The result – “The word ‘Please’ must be heard,” said Ghia..  😀

Try as I may, I couldn’t resist. The Beatles’ song – ‘Please, Please Me’ kept repeating in my mind over and over again. So I gave in to an old love and found this magnificent live video on YouTube..

Please Enjoy..!  😀
