cheating, really?

avocado toast b 5.31.18Good morning everyone…

Remember my discovery of Avocado on toast, it was wonderful.  Now I cheat, I buy the prepared avocado at Costco and use it on my toast.  Why!  well, because… I found that I would purchase fresh avocados from the grocery store, and then either they would not be ripe enough, I left them too long and yuck.  I decided on the lazy way.  I saw the packaged avocado dip/spread, looked at the ingredients.. and just like that it was in my basket.   Sigh…When there is a will there is a way!

I learned to live   (Aprendi a viver)

To practice every day  (pra gente pracicar)

To solve many problems,     (resolver nossos problemas)

To progress and improve   (proredir e melhorar)

And so can you…. we need only to look at what we want, then  look at how to resolve what we want so that we can enjoy  =^_^=

It is not cheating, it is achieving… an end result that works for YOU.

We are all unique, and how we go about looking after ourselves, well… there is always a way !!!

wanna dance

Bruno Mars

Sometimes I wonder how my brain functions.  It was bedtime.  need to shut down and rest… The above link will take you to what I decided to watch to wind down. Duh, is this a case of “mixed emotions” or a tiny bit of “silly”

Bruno Mars is an “energy” that encourages me to get up and dance, move, keep fit, he makes it all look so effortless, but of course, we all know that such dexterity and co-ordination comes with hard work and practice.

The lazy me, knows that I won’t retain ease of motion if I sit around all day, and the “smart” me knows that right now…  I can use some “slowing down”.. BUT whether I feel like it or not, I need to stay fit.  So…. today, I may not get up and dance, but I will do my steps… walk, one foot in front of the other, and step step step.

How about you?  Are you making time for YOU.  or….. are you letting the world hold you down, and not looking ahead…… come on….  move it!

carpet colours 6.7.18

Magic carpet.

Not really but the colours appealed to me.  I did however resist bringing it home. I have been busy for weeks now cleaning up, doing a major spring cleaning.  So much to be done, true I didn’t need to do it right away, but, type AAA that I am, once I know something has to be done.  I make it happen.  In a way, I got on my own carpet and worked “magic”..  I revved up the old broom and pulled into drive.

Day 9 PL Calendar – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU.  

I believe that to be true.  For over a year now, I have been unable to focus on my surroundings, it was no longer a “comfortable” ambiance.

Day 10  PL Calendar – Everyone has their own unique Personality

I have been told  “not to do anything major for the next while because, whether I realize it or not, I am going through a “phase of adjustment”  So…………..little by little I have been cleaning out…  removing “illness” “pain” and “discomfort”   Sweeping, cleaning, washing, and making changes, that enhance the “home”  ensuring that the “balance” and harmonizing of “energies” comes alive again, and grows with each passing day.  A home is where the “heart” is.  Always, forever and always.

The next few days will be busy, on Monday the 11th. at 10.am. we will have the Ancestors’ Day ceremony and special prayer and  memorial for Brian.  Where-ever you are, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time  if you are able to, join us in prayer.  What a positive VIBE it will be. =^_^=

Blessings dear friends… may the Universe shine down  loving rays to warm your days and sprinkle night dreams with enriched star dust.

the door

doorHello door

how come you are so small

if I open you, where will I go

first you need to open me

only then will you see

if it is possible to enter within

well, I thought that isn’t so welcoming

still it was a pretty door,

I was intrigued

I bought the door and brought it home

now you are mine

I smiled and thought of when I would go inside

the door silently stared back at me

yes, I am yours it finally said

but just because you bought me

doesn’t mean that I will open up for you

hmm there was a message there

not so much in what was said

or was it……….. what was said

I had the door, the physical door was in fact mine

no doubt there, it sat on my desk as pretty as ever

Sometimes, it is not the door we want .. is it?

It is what is inside…. or what we “think” is beyond the door

Have you come across a door of late

where you  are willing to wait

to see if you have the “key” to open the door

and go beyond the physical barrier

of a shut ” door”

Some doors are open

some are not

even when open

do you really want to go inside?

dreams

f4af79db6c796300f3bc58ba0f756dfcThe last few nights I have had the strangest dreams..  Well .. really if I think about it, they are not all that strange, the themes in most of my dreams are multi-coloured and always, I seem to be drifting from one “act” to another…usually I’m in the same locations, but the back drops are different.  Players change in appearances but in the long and short of it all, they bear similar personalities to the actors I’ve interacted with in the past.

I found this picture in my files, and thought it appropriate for this post.  The colours are cheerful, however there is something about the picture that although I like various aspects of it.. For me, the total doesn’t really pull together properly.  And that, dear reader, is what I am “feeling” this morning.  My dream, my recollection, the moment, etc. is OK, but there is a BUT.

Ever happen to you, can you relate.  It is Tuesday after all, not Thursdays when I usually like to participate in Norm’s Thursday doors. link to Thursday Doors

What else to do but go forward with the day and see what transpires. Exciting eh~!

what to do?

memory candle for Brian

What to do when your day starts with a “bang” (unpleasant one) and then more or less continues on in similar fashion.  During the 10 a.m service today, (Day of Peace) I found myself crying thinking of what happened early before I got to the church.

The dog got his tail chopped off by a closing door.  My precious baby.. yelped,  then I saw the piece of tail on the floor and the trail of blood as he escaped into the house.  Such misery, such helplessness.. I could only react. Meanwhile his sister who is white, was now looking like a red dalmatian and blood was everywhere, on me and on the carpets. Didn’t matter all I wanted to do was pick him up and hold him to me… of course that did wonders for my outfit.  When I finally got to church, I realized that I still had blood on me, and my clothes.  What a sight.

Fortunately the vet made a house call.  I was so relieved.  We are all resting comfortably,  the human will be taking to her bed very early. Oh dear, just remembered have to check on the laundry.  Used cold water. back.. looks like all the stains came out. ahh sigh.

PL Calendar, day 2    Be Forever young and seek new challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.

During all of today’s “activities”, I picked up the memory candle from the Funeral home, isn’t it pretty, there is a small compartment that is sealed under it.  During the service, the candle is lit.  I had never seen these before.  I am comforted that it is home with me now.

Life is what it is.  I need to slow down, and let my journey set the pace for peaceful healing.
