Work is a pile of chores (minor things) How sincere are you in your daily life from morning till night? Life is a series of small things, a pile of small things, reminder, happiness is something not to neglect.

Rumours are curses. When people who like to gossip get together, they turn into the conversation into “bad language” Just being there saying bad things and so on is a negative. It is not wise to gossip

I picked a variety of “doors (openings) today, let your thoughts, imagination wander and explore the possibilities, of how and what these images evoke.
OK virtual worlds are not for everyone, but.. let me tell you, laid up, not able to get out and get around by myself right now.. being able to visit the fun creativity of Halloween themed parks is super Fun. This is my avatar China dressed for her dance set at a club where my friend Yume is DJ for a two hour set of rocking Blues.
I know that every year the decorating and hauntings are becoming more and more festive, in and out of virtual. What will be doing, have you got plans… will you dress up, is your home/office/school decorated. For me I’ve already started with the pumpkin pie, turkey, dressings and all the fixings that go with the cooler season and the holidays associated with it.
Be very careful about doing things you really like. Do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you’ll lose your balance
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.

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.
Are we ever ready for the changing seasons… Do we ever get all we want to get done in time for the change in the weather and the changes in our lives that we know will happen…. Animals live in the moment, they accept what is happening and deal with it. They have no choice but to interact with the moment when it happens. We on the other hand, have too much going on in our gray matter, we think too much. Or in some cases, we don’t think at all, we miss “it” all together.
Multitasking reduces your joy by half. When doing something give it your all. There is joy in everything.
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.
Second Life is a virtual world that can be accessed from almost everywhere in the world. https://www.secondlife.com/ By now everyone knows about virtual worlds, and many of you are familiar with what an avatar is. To move around in SL, you need an avatar, but all that will be explained to you by visiting the SL (Second Life) website. If you are already in SL, then this is the venue you won’t want to miss. SAX on the Beach. https://wordpress.com/view/virtualnws8.ca
Two full days of live music, the musicians come from all corners of the world and all have their own unique way of presenting their music to you. The times they are playing ( you will see the schedule in the virtual news blog) will enable you to schedule a time convenient to you.
The links I’ve provided will take you to two of my earlier posts that will give you (1) the details of the Sax on the Beach venue, and the Pacifique Halloween themed park. Halloween will run at Pacifique till the end of October and maybe a wee bit beyond.
October is my favourite month… I don’t get to dress up in RL, but in SL I have a blast.
Thank you to my wonderful caring friends who have been helping me while I heal. Friendships are treasures that one can’t find with a credit card, they are priceless.
Today in PL is Appreciation Day (formerly Thanksgiving) it is celebrated on the 21st of each month. We gather for a special ceremony at the church, services are held at 7 pm.
I have much to be thankful for, I have been unable to do to much for myself these past days, i.e a simple glass of water if it was out of my reach, was a total effort to attain if I had to get up out of bed and be mobile. Time heals, and with the help of my friends, I have managed, I am so blessed. I can now move around with the crutches in a much easier fashion, at times, I manage with one if the distance is short and there is furniture I can hold on to. A stool was placed in the kitchen so once I get there I can sit, reach the fridge, micro, toaster etc. and at least manage to get something to eat on my own.
It is easy to take for granted the mobility we have, I will certainly be more aware and remember to give thanks for all of my abilities and not take them for granted from now on. Appreciation is sometimes something we give lip service to, IT IS IMPORTANT.. our abilities, talents and skills are earned and when one is taken away even for a short time, “life” changes. In PL we ask that prayers start our day and end the day.
Service tonight is at 7 pm. if you cannot attend in person, please pray from home, Give thanks for the blessings received the past month, and ask for guidance for the coming weeks.
Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

PS- if I lived closer I would want to get a cloth and polish the chrome on the old truck.. isn’t it a beauty!
It’s OK! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

First I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes.. I certainly appreciated hearing from you knowing my well being was being assisted by your prayers .. I can’t promise that I won’t try to take down another dead tree on my own… but I will exercise more awareness when I hear my knee snap and my leg give a whimper to PAY ATTENTION… and not try to “finish up what I started”
This will be a quickie since I can’t sit for any length of time.. the affected muscles etc. run up into my buttock.. I’ve been provided with a set of crutches which I need to even get off the bed. And friends are coming by to ensure that I “behave”, eat, etc. the dogs are being wonderful.. carefully staying out of the way when I try to manoeuvre from the bedroom to the bathroom. I’m afraid I might have to spent more time reclining with the leg up.. for another 24 hours. (sigh I’m a terrible patient, I want to find a way to get back into the woods to finish what I started!) (Ducks as Awen readies to whop me with a fish)
OK OK I promise I’ll be good (for this morning anyway ) All the medication yesterday is still making its way through my system. Later I’ll catch up on your adventures and drink in the wonderful visual presentations.
Take care everyone! Enjoy the crisp fall weather..
btw. anyone else, have WP change the font etc. on them?
