It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk or running for office.

Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.

Thursday Doors

old and worn, always dependable

Chinese New year (Rat) this Lunar year will be January 25. My door is old and I use it often to paint on, or simply try out new techniques. Solid wood, it is dependable and always welcoming. (to me).. At this time of year, it gets a festive holiday New Year greeting (blessing) for those in the home and friends coming in.

longer view to show off the dog prints too..

To the right of the entrance door is the old milk box, where the delivery service would come in the mornings, take away the old empty bottles and exchange them for fresh new milk, if lucky with a wonderful dollop of cream floating on top. How many of you remember these boxes…

Yes Norm, the door is faded from the last time you saw her. Maybe this spring, I will give her a new look. Stay tuned =^_^=

Thanks for visiting.. muah.. hugs to you all …

Wednesday 15th.

Not picture perfect, but there you have it. Leon has his rights. He knows when it is his time to chill, and he takes it.

It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.

Offer your services instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

red sails or Koi

What do we see when we are shown an abstract painting. Do we even see anything at all. Maybe only the colours jump out at you, is it the texture, the groupings. This is one of my latest pieces, turned in all directions. I know which side I see as up, but then when doing the photos, I saw so much else when I viewed it from the different angles.

In my mind when I started, I had the song “red sails in the sunset” running through my gray matter.. later when I stood back and looked at it again, a few days later…. I saw Koi. Each evoked different emotion and thoughts.

When you think.. “I’ve got it,” Think again. It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

composting

Good morning all, I used this picture yesterday it is how the Parks and Services composts vegetation they clear in their forest.

runs along the St. Lawrence, from Cornwall towards Morrisburg, Ontario

Often we just take for granted that our park lands, forests our there for us to enjoy and explore. The big pile left to compost over winter and into next season, reminded me of all the workers that we don’t see during the weeks and months that keep the trails free and open for us to use, 4 seasons of the year.

It is important to say thank you, and appreciate those that work behind the scenes, men and women who we don’t get to see, but work doing things that we get to appreciate every day. Last night JR (company here in Ottawa) had drivers out clearing lane ways that were hard to clear due to the heaviness of the snow and ice. built up over the last couple of days. It is a service I pay for. Yet it was not really an amount of snow that they usually come out and do. This was an accumulation over several days.

When I heard the plow in the lane way I was truly grateful and happy. By the time I got myself organized to run out and say thank you.. the plow was at the end of the street moving to the next customer on the street. That gratitude was so heartfelt. I had tried to move the snow, and it was hard, I had given up, and come inside. This was earlier in the day, to get to church I drove over the hard crusted snow. I so dislike car tracks in the snow/ice that leave ruts over time.

I will make time today, to call the company and say thank you. Appreciation feels good, and I want to pass it on. You?
