Hello, Hallo greetings to you in every way! Isn’t it a lovely day, we had a new blanket of snow over night. Everything looks so “winter wonderland” white! Looking out this morning, it was hard to imagine the trees with their fall colours of crimson, gold and multiple shades of russet and fading greens .Being that we are already into January, the days are getting longer, and soon, yes soon, in a couple of months the same trees that are looking like wooden bark sculptures of gray/browns dipped in crisp white snow crystals, will be showing off their new dressings of mint & apple greens, buds of tender pale shoots will be breaking through the branches that will have soaked up the nurturing rays of the sun, providing them with the nutrients they need to open up to their full splendor.
The PL calendar today, is about not being swayed by the past. It says ” It is what you do from now on that count” Another way of saying to live in the moment. So much time is often spent on dwelling what was, or what could be, and again, if only…. We can’t relive the past, but we have every opportunity to make each day a day we will enjoy so that come end of day, we feel that it was a day well spent.
The internet is abundant in quotes and sayings. Where do they all come from. Some are very good and thought-provoking, others…. Again it is all in the eye of the beholder isn’t it. Today I plan on having a great day… what about you!!
This is not my back yard… LOL…. but I sure wish I could gaze on this vista with my own eyes. Be there, to hear the water cold and clear slowly make its way over the rocks. New Zealand, the more I see of this beautiful country, the more I want to explore. Maybe someday. Who knows. Meanwhile, thanks to you, I get to research and find destinations, we can visually enjoy from our desks. Life is for sharing, thank you all for allowing me into your homes, I so appreciate you all.
