Canadian mosquito,,, wicked pest

they are tiny,hungry, sting, bite and are aggressive

my heartfelt appreciation to all the birds that feed on these nasties.

When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you ar able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

morning missive from Japan. –

πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€ 2022/05/12 [Lilac] The flower language is “an important friend.” There are a lot of people around you. “Treasure” is hidden. “Treasure” doesn’t make money. You’re involved, you’re accepted, you’re cared for, you’re cheered up, Sometimes they worry and encourage me. Such an important companion is a treasure that money can never buy ☺️ And you are someone’s treasure. Your kindness is my treasureπŸ₯°πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈ

Re- mosquitos .. started noticing them the other day. It wasn’t too bad, the odd bit of buzzing, but yesterday they were bolder, I suspect with each passing day they will get more persistent. Time to find another way to get my walking in. Something to ponder on. for sure.. long sleeves, neautral colours.. note to self, they bite through some clothing, somehow they even manage to get into your hair and will find any open areas to get at your skin. I am not exaggerating their zeal.

Have a grand day everyone, we have been experiencing weather in the 80’s here. day after day, we are not in the summer season yet. Forecast is for sunny skies and a lot of record breaking heat.

Wednesday 4th.

Some forever moments require standing still

Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying.. “thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.

Perfect Liberty 2014.21

Have you heard the expression… not my monkey, not my zoo -this is what kept going through my head last night, I even wrote out several times in a journal page, something I have not done in a long time. “It is none of my business, let it go…”

Take action without thinking too hard. No matter how hard you try to foresee the future, you really don’t know how things will turn out. Do your best and see how it plays out.

Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.

Benjamin Disraeli

Loss is painful. It’s natural for us to grieve over things we’ve lost. And it takes time to fill the hole left by a loss. The larger t he hole, the longer it takes to fill it. At some point, though, we need to put painful feelings aside sot hat we can get on with the business of living. this doesn’t mean ignoring or forgetting our loss, but, rather recognizing that life is a gift that we have a responsibility to honor. We honor what we have lost as well when we learn from our loss, incorporate it into who we are and move on. Loss is natural and unavoidable. I understand and accept t his.

Ottawa and water

Be in tune with the feelings of others. Let’s start by trying to understand other peoples feelings.

Perfect Liberty 2022.22

If being near or around water is something that you enjoy, find soothing, Ottawa is the place to explore. The city and the surrounding areas are full of wonderful places to explore and discover.

Happy Friday everyone,

noticing now

I woke with too many thoughts running through my head. So much so, I wanted to turn over and pull the covers up over my head. Then I remembered that today was the 21st. and a day for giving thanks for the blessings in my life. Followed by that thought came the reminder that my late husband’s birthday is this week-end.

These doors are on campus in Japan (PL headquarters Foreign Student building). We would roll out the futons at night to sleep, and then roll them back up during the day.

I think I may have a fuddled day. My thoughts seem to be drifting from one place to another. This next picture was in Quebec. (top picture too)

Maybe I will just stay where ever my day takes me… and say thank you for whatever comes my way.

Thank you thank you thank you… Let’s live with gratitude towards everyone and everything all day today.

Sorry folks, I’ll just say thank you.. and log off.. the grey cells are just not wanting to activate. As I continue on with my day, I’ll remember that every moment is an opportunity to practice (mindfulness) and be aware that – this too shall pass….

winter white

Snow has melted, leaving the trees waiting patiently for the sun to warm the ground around them, and to release the awakening sap so that their new buds will begin to appear. Perhaps not as awe inspiring as the fall when they are wearing their autumn colours, but it is peaceful, quiet and there is an anticipation in the air. See the sign, I first showed it to you a couple of years back. By the end of this growing season, it will be interesting to see how much more it will be hidden by the growth around it.

When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you are able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

It looks so quiet, but it was anything but.. the woodlands was alive with sound and activity – yet in its own way, it is the “eternally quiet – that never is…_ https://youtu.be/1jFwdGho1IA my first time to notice and be aware of the grouse… I’d heard the sounds before, but never knew what it was.. Yesterday I was with someone who knew… what a Wow moment.

circumstances

I happened on this duck while walking along the path that goes along the shoreline of the lake

He/she was not interested in me.. simply walked on by.. and down to the water’s edge. Here are some of the other encounters – You can see it was a very peaceful walk, everyone was just lazing about.

Always be aware of the beauty around you. See who is sharing your day with you, maybe not up close and personal, but under the same vast skies, taking in the fresh spring air.. to harmonize with the world around us, is a gift we give ourselves.

Don’t let circumstances sway your decision. It does not help to overthink things. Sometimes we just need to make up our minds and move forward.

This is a conservation area I was visiting, thus the many different wildlife. We re very fortunate here in the area, that we are surrounded by green spaces, and not one, but many conservation park. I am grateful and hold a lot of gratitude in my heart.. that I am able to enjoy the richness of the world around me.

I was looking at Num’s pictures .. was actually looking for doves … I have been seeing doves at Mer Bleue (NCC conservation area) Doves have been eating with the Blue jays, red wing black birds, and yesterday there were a dozen or so cackles there too. Fewer chickadees, but several groups of finch.. it was cold enough that the ice was solid underfoot, but one an feel the difference in the air, spring weather is here. Up and down, yo yo.. weather.. cold, mild, more cold, you get the drift. Then I saw the owl picture and knew I wanted to share.

At P23 (DewBerry, again NCC land) I was thrilled to see a couple of woodpeckers, they have not been around that much. However for those of you who are interested the white “ferret” has been around, he/she is changing colour..but I have seen him/her scampering through the woods, up, over and under what snow remains on the forest floor.

Also the wee ones are chasing about in great numbers. Where in the dead of winter the squirrels were busy gathering and munching on what they could find, the smaller animals I didn’t see.. but now I see little critters, chipmunks and smaller, scurrying with tails waving in the air behind them…. they seem to be everywhere. Maybe that is why I hear the owl(s) especially if I am there very early. Also its mating season right?…

Yesterday I heard that sexual energy (it was a quote) is one of the strongest drives in nature.. (for creativity and inspiration) Hey.. i was half asleep You Tube Quotes was playing actually I think the series is Kuotes spelled with a K.

Have a great day everyone… Till soon.

The owl is sought out by photographers and birders.. for some reason, they are fascinated by the owl and want to see it, usually he/she keeps hidden and certainly far from humans. It must wonder at the strange behaviour it sees from its perch .. as the two legged beings point and stand for long periods of time focused on him.. content to watch him sleep, and thrilled when he winks or turns his head…. forget the reaction if he stretches and spreads his wings.

chickens

Unlikely pair to find on my way to the woods. I have to turn off a country road unto another very rural road that leads to one of the conservation area… I drove by the two chickens just sitting on the road (opposite side from the side I was driving).. at first I thought, my eyes were deceiving me.. I stopped looked in the rear view mirror to find two heads turned my way. I backed up. what else could I do.. stopped beside them, turned my flashers on and got out. They watched with interest .. didn’t move… just waited for me to???

I got seed from the back of my car and put it on the other side of them.. hoping to lead them off the road itself. they didn’t hesitate they began pecking and moving to the side of the road. What to do.. I didn’t want to leave them the woods there are full of coyotes and other critters that could do them harm. In the end I did drive to the parking lot and got the phone number for the NCC (National Capital Commission) the land owners … who in turn assured me they would get in touch with someone from the conservation team. And a ranger would come to the rescue… I sure hope they did.

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.

Perfect Liberty 2022.29

New encounters can help you change. BE up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being.

Perfect Liberty 2020.30

btw. no I don’t think the chickens came from somewhere near by.. it is in the woods there are no farms in that area.. it is all protected land. It snowed last night.. there were no tracks in the snow.

For everything there is a reason .. maybe not at the time … will you know why? … but there will be an aha moment when something will “relate”

Till soon..
