I’m wife, mother and grandmother who has had various unplanned encounters with animals that I will share here on Splendippity. Throughout my life, I’ve had many animals cross my path. While a fair share of them were dogs, I’ve had a variety of other animals as well, both domestic and wild, wander into my yard and life. I never realized that this was unusual, in fact for many years I thought such things happened to people all the time. When I would share a story about the latest animal to show up and people would act like it was odd, I assumed it was happening because of where I lived. I thought that maybe I just lived in an area where people did not control their animals well. In 1997 when my husband and children and I moved to a new home I remember telling them, “Well, this should put an end to our strange animal adventures”. Three weeks later there was an ostrich in my front yard. To learn more, click here: Cross My Path
Of course there is more to life than stories about the various animals that randomly appear in my yard so I will also be writing about some of those things as well; about the random things that just happen; just as the animals just happen.
Why Splendippity? Because it came to me when I was sleeping. What does it mean? It’s a word I literally dreamt up that means splendid serendipity. But to make this work for my blog, I had to spell it with a pp instead of a p. So who knows…..maybe I didn’t make it up alone, maybe there were other forces at work. Either way….I like it and I hope you do too.
