a quiet moment

Quiet, blue skies, puffy clouds, shadows, the dignity of dying, allowing for the next season to begin.  Gratitude and Acceptance.

Some stay behind, some go on to reclaim their freedom, their work on earth is done.

21st Sunday Thanksgiving

blue riibbon and button 4.2.17

Creativity is seeing things everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has ever thought


 

PL thought for today – When you are able to have a thankful attitude you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.

Original expression done shortly after my Mother passed away. Could I do it again, no. Once we express something to the world it is done, there is no going back.  We move forward.  In anger once I spoke angry words about someone.  My Mother quickly and quietly told me that I should think before I spoke.  Words spoken, actions of unkindness, are negative not only to the person you are directing your anger to, but to your self.  If you have nothing kind to say, say nothing.  Deal with the moment, you can do it.. tomorrow will be another day.

 

Witches Woods~

love this post of Cindy’s


In Oban Scotland, The Dunollie Woodland Trail, will lead you into The Witches Woods!

The deeper you go into the forest, the older it becomes.

The trees in the forest were twisted over time into witch-like shapes by the actions of fierce coastal winds.

Some of the oaks are over 400 years old.

The Witches Woods surround Dunollie Castle,

which was once home to the most powerful clan in Western Scotland, the MacDougalls.

The remains of the castle and the old manor house can be toured.

I was first scheduled to visit Oban about 30 years ago, but The Queen was doing a walk about, so our plans were changed. I am happy to have finally visited this charming town and the gorgeous Hebrides.

We are home at The Holler now, but it is cheers and BOO to you from misty Oban’s Witches Woods~

cranberried chicken wings

 

chicken wings   how many wings will determine the amount of cranberries you use

fresh cranberries   I used half a cup for about a pound of wings

half cup of honey garlic sauce   I prefer the strong garlic, but medium and mild is sold

pink Himalayan salt    to taste

simmer in a pot with about an inch of water, wine if you prefer

keep heat low, let it simmer covered till meat is falling off the bones

Serve on rice or noodles.

If you are not a person who enjoys the delight of sucking tender meat off the bones, this is not a dish for you.

next time I think I will add a black Japanese pepper to add to the sweet and tart of the dish.

Side dish is always mounds of a fresh veggies, steamed and served still on the crisp side.

Enjoy

Bom dia, greetings … hope you are heading off to have a super fab week-end.

Church Sunday  21st will be the Thanksgiving Ceremony, morning 10 and evening at 7

Cranberry delight

 

IMG_1206I felt like I was walking in my own wonderland.  Given permission to wander and enjoy, I took full advantage and drove down towards the fields of now harvested cranberries.

 

The light drizzle and clouds over head, did nothing to dampen the thrill of the experience.

There was a calm, the ducks, and birds were nesting and peaceful, the waters drifted lazily along, enjoying the pull of the breezes.

I had wanted to visit the Cranberry fields for a very long time.  The other day, I slowed down, and took the winding country lane down to the farm.   Upper Canada Cranberries, Ottawa’s only cranberry grower.  Greely, Ontario.  613-798-6232, or the other number shown, 613-720-6232.

It is of course off season, the harvesting had been down, workers were gone, it was just me and whatever wild life  called the farm home.

I was happy, my spirits were soaring with the high of being alive and able to be there at that moment in time. For me, it was a blessings, pure  intoxicating love for all that IS.

The owner was busy when I was driving out,  I hope he knows how content I was.  He lives and works in this environment all year.  WOW…  He has a small store front, for days he is open.  You can get fresh cranberries, and pure cranberry juice, no sugar.  That my dears is a find.  If you are in the area, please look the place up.

IMG_1302This was a very special blessing, I followed through on my desire to visit the farm, there was no distraction.  My reward was the intense feelings of being ONE with the environment I was in.

I wish this for each and every one of you. Have a joy filled day… now and always.

A gateway to a new experience

IMG_1294

 

When we were younger, the new experiences were self-generated and often kept us busy for hours, the doors were special, giving us access to … happily ever after.

Big, small, old, new, a door, doorway is a different to each and every one of us.  But boy oh boy, they still hold a fascination, keep us wanting more.

PL Calendar day 18     Look Forward to What’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
