Sunday -strolling thru

Because (update) I had a bit of a set back yesterday, I will be off my leg for another while. I was thrilled when I saw Num had posted the above pictures, this is where I want to be.. I so much want to be back wandering the woodlands..Sooooo I am being good, and practicing patience as best I can to ensure the leg heals. My new camera is heavy, and the terrain I like to wander is on the rugged side.. current mantra is patience girl, patience.

With one thought “The world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

I will be doing a blog on the Sax on the Beach venue I attended (virtually) later today or tomorrow to show you some of the talent I got to see and enjoy, I will post to my Virtual news 8 blog, SEE LINK. Please subscribe to it for news on the event and other venues and entertainment news from SL (Second Life) It is an opportunity for you to enjoy and get to know about people from all over the world through their creativity and talents. All from the comfort of your home. https://virtualnws8.ca/

My friend Shirley in NZ visited the most wonderful attraction in Denniston of an old coal mine. I’m going to share some of her pictures here for you to enjoy.

Where ever you are in the world, this is a wonderful time of the year, the cooler air is exciting, it brings with it the winds of change, and therefore we have new discoveries to explore. Through the adventures of my friends who like myself like to wander and explore, through my blog I try to share with you the awesome world we live in. In Shirley’s pictures I could envision how the coalfields must have looked back when it was operational, the hive of activity, the human energy it required to function.

We (as a people) have come such a long way, the history of our past, the trials, the hardships, the joys and the new discoveries are all part of what we have to thank for, where we are today.

With the new season soon to be with us, let’s strive to be better at being open to new ideas, new possibilities, and remember to give thanks for where we have been, and the people/ancestors who paved the way for us.

With one thought “the World” will change, it begins with US.

Love you all. Till soon

flipping Friday

Cranberries and meat pie. Cranberries and chicken pot pie. Cranberries and roast turkey with dressing. No those are not cranberries… they are the cherries from my cherry tree this past summer. I simply have not been able to find all my pictures of cranberries.. but.. the season is coming when I want to taste cranberries.

Free yourself from being overly attached. Overthinking hinders ideas and actions.

I doubt I will curb my enthusiasm for cranberries right now.. but I did stop looking through old files for the pictures of my trip to the cranberry fields.

Have a great start to the week-end everyone.

Till soon.

Monday

Chinese Lanterns from my garden

When they dry, I bring them in .. the leaves have gone, there only remains the lanterns on their stems.. they make lovely centre pieces, or arrangements that brighten up the seasons when we are indoors more. I was told they hold spiritual pods inside that have gathered their energy from the sun during their growing season. =^_^= Because I love the idea of having the natural elements of the Universe sprinkled throughout my living space, these are “gems” that I enjoy all year long.

Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

Refreshing greetings not only enrich your mind, but also make the other person’s heart feel good. When you say hello, stretch your chest, raise your head and cheer up with a smile.

Silent Sunday

Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing be creative and do things to improve your day.

elusive

In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..

What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.

Happy today to you! Share your smile!

coming…

When its time to eat, the clan/family gathers. There is a time of gathering, each makes his/her way to the “table”. We were not part of the dinner party, but we did get to watch as they arrived. I had stopped the car, there was such a feeling of quiet and tranquility, no city sounds, just the calling of the birds, a dog barking his/her welcome, and the ambience of the day. A perfect day in the country.

Every time we take a “day vacation” it energizes and helps put perspective on the current “state of affairs”

Have a “let’s do it” attitude. Even if a task is difficult, keep in mind it is given by God and accomplish it.

Perfect Liberty 2021.14

Keep your balance. A life that ignores balance will eventually lead to a deadlock. whatever you do, look at people, the environment, the state of the economy, the trend of the times , and try to express yourself properly after balancing yourself with them.

Tuesday -smile

Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

Perfect Liberty 2021.12

In PL we learn that it is through living with appreciation for all the blessings we receive in life, positive & or challenging… we will continue to be blessed… the practice of prayer on a daily basis helps us maintain a balance in our lives.

fyi. for all of you who commented on the upside cars in last Thursday’s blog, it was an art installation that is held each year in Quebec City… the 3 cars were put there by artists who filled them with earth and made gardens for the viewers to enjoy. It was one of many displays along selected streets in part of the city.

May your day/week be filled with much happiness and positive productive moments.

Rain on Sunday

The rain comes to wash away the dust, dirt and grime of the past weeks. We mortals that we are, also have a way of clearing away the “mental” debris we accumulate over the days and nights we cohabit on this planet. We pray! Whether prayer is silent, or voiced, we offer our thanks and express our gratitude for everything in our lives, whether they have been happy or challenging.

In PL, we offer our gratitude and prayer monthly with a ceremony at the church, however, I try to start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude, I offer my thanks for a good night of sleep and my thanks for presenting me with a brand new day. In the fall, there is a stir of excitement in the air when the weather starts to change, we visually see the beginning of a new season. Orange’s and bright yellows begin to appear with dashes of crimson here and there, till almost all the greens disappear and only the fall pallet is before us. Then we are blessed with a cornucopia of golds, burnt umber, rusts and the evergreens that remain show off the many variances of their colour range.

The foundation of our faith, PL Precept # 1 Life is art…. “as a living person, you interact with the people and things around you in order to express your feelings. Your life is shaped by the way you express yourself each and every day. Through your daily artistic expressions, you can create your one and only life.” It is easy to get so caught up in the chaotic energy of the world around us, that is why it is so important to remember to pray and give thanks each day for the blessing of life itself.

Our lives are our very own unique work of art. If you cut corners or miss important details, you will not be able to live up to your fullest potential. PL Precept #2 To live is to express One’s Self!!

I am most grateful to each and everyone of YOU, for being part of this community of “friends” who share and enjoy this world with me. I truly feel blessed and appreciate your visits and the sharing of your thoughts, stories and pictures that I get to enjoy and read… Oyashikiri…

Till soon -love always!

crow teachings

This morning I took off to find the wild turkeys, instead I found a group of crows.. there were only 4 – 6 of them.. I was pleased to see them.. you know I love my crows.

There were not familiar to me. I was in a different part of the city, they kept their distance. At least with this camera I could get a little closer to them.

I love the look on this fellow. He kept his distance, but didn’t fly off after I put out a bribe or two =^_^=

Life is for living. Make each moment of our day count.. Remember it is always important to take time for YOU. Self Care these days is paramount. This is a lesson I have to pay heed to myself, we tend to sometimes overdo… Seeing the crows today, when I was expecting wild turkeys was an “ah ha” moment, at first I was disappointed, then I realized .. crows are my favourite birds, I love crows.. and here they were just waiting…. it was an opportunity to make like the willow/bamboo and go with what was presented to me… Enjoy the crows … make new friends.. everything happens for a reason.!
