contentment

leon aug 16

A day at the beach with your favourite people.  Then a sound sleep at the end of the sofa while your human takes a nap.

In PL we learn to appreciate life, not only humans in the world with us, all living beings, and  the material objects that make our lives more comfortable.  Appreciation, respect  are the natural fibres of/in our lives that bring contentment.

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

Happy Saturday, may it be a productive one for you.

sister project

IMG_20190802_082931_resized_20190802_125322083

Something neither one of us had done before.  Painting on wooden what nots.  A nice quiet activity, but with results that will leave a lasting memory.  Fun.  Having been to Holland, my sister picked the tulips.  I have seen these wooden pictures in the stores, just never thought to try doing something with them.  There is a light in each one.  A very different look when seen at night with the light in the back.

Anyone else given these little wooden what nots a try?  If yes, post a picture, it would be delightful to see your “vision”.  I noted the Halloween ones are out now.  Do I dare try spooky  🐱


PL Calendar day 6     Begin each day with a renewed sense of appreciation.

Always remember that you are here today thanks to God, and thanks to the many people around you.  Lets make each day meaningful by starting out with a feeling of gratitude.

working and living

2006a

Working and living =^_^=   go together – living in the NOW means you are interacting and being present all day, whether it is work or play, you are involved.  by putting your best into all you do, the experience is uniquely yours.  What ever you do today, enjoy it. Yes, really… do your best.

PL calendar day 4 – Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others.

Junho 4, Pense em felicitar a si e aos outros, sendo honesto consigo.

research

scrapbook centrale may 25

Object,    considering a class at Scrapbook Centrale, pick up deck of cards.  Live in Ottawa, drive to Montreal for deck of cards. ????

Look again, see the deck of cards.  No I don’t either.  I went next door to a Dollar store to find a deck, and it took walking up and down the aisles several times. I kid you not.

The workshop that I had considered taking, was one that involved 52 cards (standard playing cards)  Having purchased the playing cards, and begun the first step of putting black gesso on a few…..I am now, no longer considering that class.  Yup.. I have been drawn to brighter more electric colours and find myself reviewing options.

Research is good.  So is change, timing is everything.

PL Day 26   Put your whole heart into whatever you do, no matter when or where you are.

Don’t try to cut corners or be careless about things.  Be fully responsible completing whatever you set out to do.

It is a bit of a drive to Montreal, but the inspiration I get there, the ability to see and enjoy the creativity of others AND the vast array of products allows me plenty of fodder to research.

There has been a profound change in my life that am adjusting to.  My faith, LOVE and Life itself, keep me filled with appreciation and gratitude for I am humbled every day by the kindness, and genuine friendships that I have been blessed with.  Whether near, or far, I do love you all.

Thursday doors

IMG_20190514_125911_resized_20190514_115707432

The fascination of a door.  I loved that the lace curtain still hung on the door.

IMG_20190514_125311_resized_20190515_120012809

This doorway was further away, however, I couldn’t resist a capture so I could revisit later..  Had someone built a fort for the children to enjoy, or… was it an old structure, repurposed.  The character of places found when exploring other landscapes far from the city. Absolute heaven.

Eartha my travelling companion, shares in the delights of taking that secondary road, the quest for adventure, the joy of a discovery.  We did have a final destination and arrived soon enough.  But, not before we found another gem.

The past is part of our present.

PL calendar day 16

Avoid being careless or overconfident.

Even though you have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Why would someone put an old tire there?

PL calendar day 10

When you are not having fun, could it be because you re being lazy?  Sometimes you feel blue or can’t seem to find  the joy in doing anything.  At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.

If sadness and lack of hope knock I your heart – try to do something positive for someone else.
