Day 3138: Take a Break

Yesterday, when I was taking a break from work, I noticed this on Twitter:

Since we’re not able to take a break from the world-wide pandemic, it’s especially important for us to practice the ability to take a break.

I couldn’t help but notice this way to take a break:

… since we’re going to take a break this afternoon to meet this kitty in her foster home:

Her name is Ginger but Michael wants to call her Joan.

Harley, seen here taking a break in the curtains …

… will soon be taking a long break from being the only cat in this household.

Now it’s time to take a break by looking at my other images for the day.

Time to take a break with this song from Hamilton:

I hope you can take a break and leave a comment about this take-a-break post, below.

At least take a break to take in my gratitude to all who help me blog every day, including you!

  1. She doesn’t look like a Joan or a Ginger. More of an Ali.

  2. I am so excited to get to know Ginger Joan. She is a very fortunate cat, to join your family.

  3. Debbie T

    Love the “50 Ways” poster.

    I’d like to take a break on that dinghy in the above photo. I wish you well with the kitten.

  5. I’ve been taking a break from work this week and it’s been a great relief. I really think I should go this more often.

  6. I really like the different images and what you’ve done with the light and varied compositions. I like the food plate with the landscape of the shore in the back. I also like the flower images, of course, and I found this about the flowering Hosta ‘Minuteman’ plant you have there:

    The Hosta ‘Minuteman’ cultivar was named to commemorate the “Minutemen” of the American revolution of the 1870s. The “Minutemen” were volunteer militia-farmer forces, who pledged to be able to grab their guns and be ready to fight in one minute, should the call come. The name was given to the plant as the cultivar Hosta ‘Minuteman’ because it grows with lightning speed compared to many other Hostas.

    Hosta is a genus of plants commonly known as hostas, plantain lilies and occasionally by the Japanese name gibōshi. They’re native to northeast Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and the Russian Far East). The genus was named in honor of the Austrian botanist Nicholas Thomas Host.

  7. I love Joan already, as she may be sassy and witty like Joan Rivers, or brave like Joan of Arc, or a brilliant activist singer like Joan Baez, or a rocker like Joan Jett or ?

  8. Joan is a fabulous name for a sweet kitty! I have a good friend we call Joanie, and then there’s Joni Mitchell…so you have options. She’s a sweetie. I hope you are able to bring her home and give her a good life.

  9. Home sweet Joan, Ann. And unless she meets some hair coloring, she will forever be a ginger!
