I love this time of year, especially the coming months. Those of you who follow along, know of my utterly obsessive interest in doing “October” art forms. I have begun again, I see it sneaking into my various “art” projects.
What has also claimed some of my attention, is fall allergies… We are really not anywhere near fall season, but the weather has been blowing up the country harvests and mites.. The air must be full of something that is not sitting well with my “system”.
Such is life. The stock pile of tissue boxes will now start to diminish. and the sinus and allergy pills will come out of hiding to be front and centre in my activity areas.
I have long accepted that having seasonal allergies is part of my life experience. Acceptance, makes it easier to do what needs doing, so that I sail through the season with not too many changes to daily life.
PL # 27 -2014 calendar
Let’s Interact proactively with an ever -changing environment, society and life in general.
Monday morning greetings… I am revisiting some of the farms I have taken in the past. The big red heritage one in particular because I was out that way on the week-end. The construction has started now. Now we see bigger mounds of earth, as they rip out all the pastures around it to map out the streets that will be going in, and where the houses will be built. Already it is surrounded by big box store shopping areas, and a small mini golf course. There are all the convenience fast food stops as well..
The skies are still a beautiful blue, and stretch on for miles, but gone are the rows of produce and the beauty of wandering farm animals enjoying the sunshine and breezes.
I have been out driving back roads lately, had special events that were way out of the city, one along the St. Lawrence. A small town along Hwy 2 and the St. Lawrence, Iroquois. Small it might be, but it has a good restaurant(s), a small thrift shop, and a couple more interesting little shops. For me it was the drive along the secondary roads to get there. I took my time and drank in open spaces.
For button collectors, the thrift shop has big bowls of buttons you can go through and pick out how many and which ever ones you want. Fill a small cello bag for $1.00.
PL Calendar day 12 Be cheerful and carefree
Without putting on airs or trying to be someone you aren’t just be yourself. This will give people a good impression of you and things will move forward in the right direction.
I heard a definition once. Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I had invented it, because it is very true. Audrey Hepburn
My Mother used to say, an itching palm means you will be favoured with $ and/or something pleasant. YAY. if I am not to sleepy from the allergy meds, it will be fun. Another Mother memory is she said ear lobes can grow longer when you age. Mine have!! Message to self, you still have lots to learn.
PL calendar day 9 It is interesting because it’s different
Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently you may learn something from them. Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be,” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.
My husband used to tell me that saving 50% was not a big deal, he would be more impressed if I learned to save 100% .. Subtle … you think!! I am still working on this one.
Smiles and waves.. love and love and love.
With a prayerful mind, put your heart into everything you do..
PL Calendar day 8 – Discover the joy of transforming yourself…

We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love. Tom Robbins

Piglet and I were out wandering, I felt I needed to check in on my friend from a few weeks ago.
This time he had a few friends with him. He looked no better tended to, even though the zoo was open for business, and there were cars in the parking lot. But never mind his appearance, he made me smile, and coming over, he began to mooo? bray? Funny how animal can be so friendly in their own way. There was what looked like a reindeer type of maybe moose in with them. He looked like he had faded out, dried and withered Xmas garland hanging from his beautiful antlers. However he wasn’t ready to come say hello … we had to admire from afar.
Thankfully they can’t read the sign on that storage container that is on ground in their enclosure.
PL calendar day 29 You gain strength through your hardships
Whatever you learn easily or master effortlessly tends to be forgotten. The lessons you gain through repeated mistakes are what gives you genuine strength.
It was hot, the heat was a steady blanket of relentless “ugh” for me. Not for everyone, but me, myself and I, tend to wilt in the hot sun of summer. I feel an affection/love for these creatures, even the short visit with them will be a happy memory.
Wishing you all a great start to a brand new week.
The forbidden finger making its way to share a personal moment. Yesterday I gave him some fresh taller green leaves from my side of the fence… but did not touch, only with my voice, did I whisper my love. Every living being needs to know love!
