Saturday Sushi


Saturday..groan.. another morning

Dogs want to eat, I just want to sleep

ok already, I’m up


what, no coffee

some days, the world can seem weary

the trick,

treat yourself


you might still be a tad out of focus


but you CAN do it

head for the woods, hills, whatever beckons


yesterday, was yesterday

today is today

seize the day

make it yours

have a great day

I’m rooting for you..

you bet!! I LOVE you

portal-iwz_001Right. If only life were that simple..

Oophs sorry, wrong door, and you can simply close it and go to the next one.  It happens more often than we would like to acknowledge.  Another project, another impossible discussion with ?, a deadline looming and we’ve not come to a decision.

If we landed in a bit of a pickle, chances are, we by our own actions  had a hand in lading us there.  Time to stand back and really examine the “door/issue/challenge”.  See it as an opportunity.

vampires-graveDon’t be deterred by how it looks, if you want inside, or to know what is behind the doors, then you will need to creatively find a way to do just that.

fairy-garden-ds10940-mebob2000-on-flickrA door big or small, any shape at all, has always fascinated me, I doubt that will change anytime soon.  Even when I know what is behind the door.  I want to open the door and go inside.  Unless of course it is housework, and dirty dishes waiting on the other side.

Where would you like to be today?

Come on, come outside and play..

we can each take a turn

at having our own way…


do you believe me?

sure you do

after all

I am after all

PL Precept # 2  To life is to express One’s Self

PL Precept #17  Grasp what is most essential



Hi Everyone… my apologies to those of you who have joined our little “group” in the last month or so.  I have been experiencing issues with Windows defender, and my security software.   While away on my last trip, I noted that several new members had joined up.  However when I got back home to have a look and say hello, thank you etc. Some were not to be found, and others caused problems when I tried opening them.  So now I am being cautious.

I welcome you .. in time I will find a way to actually get to your blogs.  Meanwhile, welcome, welcome,  I look forward to getting to know what part of the blogs you enjoy the most. =^_^=

blog-10-12-14_007The month of October is a very creative month. In August I begin with the fall greeting cards, and doing up Thanksgiving one, and yes… I get a head start on the ghoulish and witching ones.  Yet.. I do not do Halloween.  Go figure, I simply like the creativity it brings out in me.  I remember in the days when I did ATC* challenges, my envelopes would be decorated with tombstones, ghosts and “characters” in all shapes and sizes.

Today I was told that our cards will be sold at one of the Craft fairs, by two of our members.  So here I am doing HO HO HO cards. By December I’m doing Hearts and Flowers cards, and working my way into Irish greetings.=^_^=

PL Precept #1   Life is Art

have fun, explore allow your creativity to flow

if you visit virtual worlds, you have lots of room to play.

where ever you are.  be present in the moment

and enjoy being YOU

ask no questions

I will tell you no lies…


instead of being weed free

this year, this garden patch was left to be

 what a surprise to walk by and find

that the fall colour

and nature’s design

presented such a pretty sight

for my eyes

truth be told

I got bold

and asked that I be given a sign

on what to have for supper

what I was given

was a package of frozen clams

sigh, not really what I had in mind

but I did ask


so here it is

clam, fresh okra on a bed

of fresh Japanese noodles

enough said

I’m off to partake

of the bounty on my plate

see what happens

when left on my own

no questions asked

you get

the mix and match

that rolls around

in my cluttered head

have a delightful day ahead

till then

smiles will bring my day to an end.


 frozen clams small package

spaghetti squash cubed 1 cup

fresh okra 8 med, size

thin slices of yellow potato (small)

tablespoon water

noodle sauce to taste

salt, pepper, red peppers mixed

Japanese fresh noodles

steam ingredients together (wok) the okra creates a nice sauce texture


cement – rock -concrete

When we had our new fence put in, we had to remove a cement/rock border along part of the driveway.


I see the pieces every time i come down the driveway, and for some reason, I am not wanting to just “get rid of them”.. they stand there like our own version of Easter Island “statues”.. waiting… watching.. standing guard


There are still pieces like this along the front edge of the property.  They  have been there for years, and are very much part of the landscape.  the  iron fence seems to be very much in harmony with them.           They just “are”


You can just barely see the top of one if you look along towards the fence.  Not wanting to disturb the blue spruce the rest of the edging will stay where it is.
