Sitting out in the sunshine yesterday, I marveled at how in just a few days the trees had doubled their foliage, even the magnolia seemed happy in her spring frock of pink/purple blooms. The long week-end just past, traditionally is when the gardeners plant get their summer gardens going, but this year, due to the frost warnings still in effect (overnight).. I heard many are waiting for another week or two for the warmer weather to really take hold.
For me, sitting out on my deck… it was wonderful, cool enough there were NO biting insects.. my guests and I could simply sit and enjoy the sun’s warm rays and the clear sky. I did see the pollen flying about, I’m sure allergy suffers are having to cope. Sending out healing vibes and a happy wave to all.
Being asked for a favour is a chance. When someone asks for a favour from you, this is a chance for you to help others. Face the chance proactively,

” Making memories with you, is my favourite thing to do” I found this small card on my studio work table a left over from a card making project I had. I love the thought, and was going to send it to a special friend… then.. the thought came to me that the saying made me smile and think of YOU… so I am posting it here so anyone finding it, and enjoying the sentiment… can share it too.
I feel so blessed, sharing with you over the years… you are locate in far off places some just minutes away, others oceans away, yet… you are all part of the community that I am blessed to have in my life. thank YOU!!
it was a beautiful sunny morning, The male was wanting attention, the females were more interested in climbing to a sunny spot and chilling. Timing wasn’t on his side yesterday.
If you work on things with the attitude of asking a favour, people around you will advise you what they have noticed. there’s something in fact you are not aware of that you do

Special prayers today for friends, family and everyone else who needs that extra boost today. Whatever it is, oral surgery, a bad cold, simple “anxiety overload”.. this is just another moment in time. prayer is a silent moment — a reaching out — a calm in the middle of a muddle… PL Precept # 1 Life is Art.

If the giraffe here was in my back yard, maybe his head would be out of the snow, maybe. That is how much snow has fallen these past weeks. Good morning, Bom dia a todos. Here we are heading into another month. A few days ago, so much of the snow accumulation we’ve had Jan. and early Feb. was really disappearing, Now. . . we have had so much snow fall the last 48 plus hours.. the snow piles in areas where it had not been taken away ( our street had been cleared of the snow piles) the snow is deep enough that cars were getting stuck on our street, and neighbours and passer bys had to help get them going again,
Snow on my back steps was over 10″ deep almost the depth of my broom ( I was trying to sweep the steps, determining if it was a good idea to venture out or not.) I don’t know when it stopped snowing, I do know that I went out twice (in the back) to shovel a path for the dogs.. Had to do it a couple of times, that is how hard and fast the snow was falling. There is one section of the yard where the snow is taller than I am.. I am 5’3″ and shrinking.
Today’s calendar message is about World Peace.
Let’s pray for World Peace. The path to World Peace will open up with each person’s prayer for peace.
Strive to live with a positive outlook everyday. Put your whole heart into whatever you do. With motivation you will feel joy and excitement.

When I was younger, my Dad would take me to Chinatown with him … there I would see the dragon’s performing outside a new restaurant or shop that was opening. It was always so festive and at the same time solemn – the gods were being asked to surround the new venture with good fortune and prosperity.
Dragons can fly, breathe fire and are extremely powerful, strong and intelligent.they have an extended range of supernatural powers. They breathe clouds, move seasons and control the waters of rivers, lakes and seas. Linked with Taoism, yang masculine principle of heat,light,sun and action as opposed to the feminine principle of coolness, darkness, repose, softness and moonlight.

How many dragons do you have in your life?
In Mythology, a female dragon is called a drakaina…. but, I just look in the mirror. wink.
Someone asked me “where do birds go to die”… Last night I was reading that the birds work very hard at surviving our winters… the nights are the worst time.. they have to eat enough to fuel their bodies till they can feed again.. they huddle puffed up in their “safe” place till they can start feeding again as soon as the daylight begins again,
I went around yesterday to various shops looking for “fats” to try my hand at making suet cakes for them, Every little bit helps.. This is a month where so much is happening, celebrations around every corner, people gathering … Please remember that not everyone will live the same experiences, or have the same opportunities. Reach out if you can.. remember to smile… and share a positive or happy vibe whenever you can.
You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for world Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.

There was a dream like ambience at Caledon yesterday (Second Life) Organizers are and were preparing for a concert. Money is being raised in a number of places for Diabetes, Cancer and other very worthwhile foundations in SL (Second Life). If you are part of the virtual platform(s) please give if you can.
Feel like I should play a few bars of “who do you love”…. by chance I chatted a photographer who was standing by the feeders. I asked for his coordinates… you can see, I had a hard time deciding which of his photos I wanted to use.. he had a Raven…. ahhhh be still my heart… and then I saw the Wild Turkeys… my heart skipped a beat…. and and… and.. look at the turkey vulture…!!! the faces.. so adorable.. The bear hit the cute factor high score… to see more pictures you can visit his Instagram.. his name is Dirk Haukenfrers https://www.instagram.com/dirkhaukenfrers/ Initially I wanted a crow.. but that thought drifted off into the ethers when I saw the Raven.
Your smile is what is needed. A smile invites happiness and cheer and is essential to energize others as well as yourself.

La vie est belle – life is beautiful
Do what you can, where you are, with what you have…. Theodore Roosevelt
Aggghhh I did something today that I’ve never done before.. I intentionally climbed over a barrier that was put there to prevent people from going on the boardwalk. I knew the risk.. I was told, the sign was there to protect the people responsible for the conservation area. Anyone who goes beyond the barriers is doing so at their own peril….. the weather has been cold but so far there is no snow and ice on the boardwalk, I had my walking stick… big waterproof boots … and I knew I would be extremely careful.
Can one capture “cold” I tried…the ice is forming on the water, it is still open in some areas… I have walked the trail in the winter before, I’m not sure why they have shut it down this winter. I will enquire. For sure.. I had the place to myself.. only met someone when I was on the trail that leads back to the parking area.
I wanted to be alone. I wanted to experience the quiet and the complete solitude of being in the open space of the bog that would be devoid of other humans. I wanted to hear my own thoughts, to listen to the distant sounds of the world happening around me, but not near me. My wish was granted.
Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.
