We never have to worry about someone being near our house without us knowing about it.
Nothing gets past Winnie (and Ruby, too).
"Whatever we choose to imagine can be as private as we want it to be. Nobody knows what you're thinking or feeling unless you share it."
As soon as a car pulls into the driveway, or someone walks onto our porch, the barking starts.
"How many times have you noticed that it's the little quiet moments in the midst of life that seem to give the rest extra-special meaning?"
In Winnie's case, we think that sometimes she forgets what she's barking about and keeps at it WAY longer than appears to be necessary.
Me: Little things and quiet moments. I strive to notice and appreciate these every day, instead of rushing through and missing something that could turn out to be special. This series of Winnie photos is a good example. Dog barking ... a multiple-times-per-day occurrence at this house, easily ignored. Taking time to really watch and document the process? Just another one of the little things, something that could easily have gone unnoticed, that gave a boost to my day. I hope this makes you smile, too.

During the month of November, I plan to share wisdom from Mr. Rogers with you each day (from the book "The World According to Mr. Rogers") ... Mr. Rogers's words accompanied by everyday images from life here at Hartwood Manor ... this place that I am blessed to call HOME.
