happy yummy

fresh baked tea biscuit, smothered in butter, and raw honey

That sounds soooo good. The doctor is not worried about my cough, or cracked and at times absent voice. Fixing the diabetic numbers is more important. The fact that for the last many years, every time I am under the weather or allergies hit.. my voice goes wonky (pointed out by my son this morning)…. leaves me wanting a hot steaming fresh out of the oven tea biscuit. lathered with butter and creamy honey… A good cuppa ice water (told to drink lots of water during the day) I’m sure that is to make sure that my new diuretic pill has something to work with…. a fresh brisk walk around Costco.. (a couple of times to make even more steps for my exercise log) makes for a full day.

For supper .. fresh roasted yellow spuds.. tossed in a bit of vinegar and Japanese salt. Steamed green beans… again the Japanese salt and black peppercorns… served as side dishes for the fresh tender trout fillets I got when at Costco.

If you get the idea that I’m hungry and anxiously waiting for my food to be ready… You are so right. Sometimes we just have to give in to the urge to treat our tummies.

How was your day.??

I thank the Universe for the blessings I have received so far today, and for the delicious meal that will be on my plate. (hhmmmm soon!!)

It is important to say “thank you”… Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself, whether it is food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.

day of Peace 1st of the month

taking time to reflect

End of day comes, I reflect on the days events, the friends I have met, the new people I’ve shared a moment with and most of all thanked the Universe for my good fortune. I lived another day, and will be blessed with a brand new one when I wake.

1st of each month in PL is the day where we come together to renew our thoughts and commitment to bring world peace to everyone.

Harmony brings us Peace. Let’s strive to always maintain good relationships at home, at work and in the community we live in.

Rain on the 417

October 19_004

Bom Dia, Good Morning,  For those of you who do not live in the area, the 417 is the highway that takes one from Ottawa, to Montreal. It is a divided highway, two lanes going east, and two lanes going west .  The landscape between here and Montreal yesterday was beyond spectacular.

oct 31_015

The weather forecast was rain and more rain.  Ottawa was predicted to have heavy rains most of the day.  Montreal less so.  When we left, we were not expecting a great sun-filled or colourful day.  There was no sun, not even a glimmer or hint of sun.  BUT the colours were out of this world.  Brilliant, rich, full of drama, it was often gasping wow moments. It truly was mesmerizing, I couldn’t get enough of it.  Never have I been so enthralled with a rainy, misty foggy day.

oct 31_008

My co-pilot was just as blown away as I was, our conversations were constantly being interrupted with our reaction to the scenery we were driving through.  Sorry no pictures it was raining too hard,  this is an extremely busy, highway.  Suffice to say, it was often surreal. The rain was so heavy that it drenched the barks of the trees, so that they stood out, like  inked ebony sculptures dripping with leaves of wet glistening golds, and often fiery burnished copper would stand out majestically against a stand of evergreens.

oct 31_007

We don’t go out expecting to be presented with endless miles of Natural wonders…. but when it happens, friends, you feel truly blessed.  The ride home was foggy and we had the rush hour traffic for part of it, but the ride to our destination, was gift.  A picture would not do it justice, we had to live it.  Live it we did.  What a day, it was glorious, yeah, really… that great.  Neither one of us expected such a 3D high-definition all out mind-blowing show…but the heavens provided and we reaped the rewards.

Life can be exhausting, but it can also be simply divine, when you least expect it to.

Norm and fellow door chasers, there is a door in one of these pictures, with activity happening in the room beyond,  You can see through the windows.. Actually there is more than one ..

Till next time… you are loved!!!!

two of me? or is there more

 

 

Sometimes I am good, and other times, well… I want to play.  The picture on the right is of me where I accepted the challenge of wearing a bikini.  I was nervous being half-dressed like that, and couldn’t stand still.  So the picture is a bit fuzzy, but then that’s ok, cuz you can’t see all my  fat and bumps.

These were outfits I made to sell in my little shop.  The avatar is a Dinky made by a very talented artist in Second Life (Etheria Parrott)  She has  variety of dinky avatars to pick from, I happen to be a sealpoint and sometimes a lilac point Siamese.

The creative side of me can spend hours exploring the artist creations of others on the grid, and when not exploring, digital photography.

Q (that is me) can spend hours touring, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting different countries .. and never leave the comfort of my home office.  I like being Q, she is fearless, she can do almost anything,  she loves exploring and meeting people, and learning about the world around her.  I on the other hand, can be a bit of a recluse.

Awen 2008This is my friend Awen who introduced me to designing and building in/on a virtual platform.  It was a whole new world, and I was open to the challenge.

Life is unpredictable, our creativity, how we pereive the world around us, and how we want to express our individuality, is all part of a whole.  We are blessed by being given a new canvas every day.

Seize the day, make art!


PL Calendar, day 31   Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

Thanksgiving

IMG_4276

Cranberries and turkey ….stuffing and mashed potatoes ….gathering of friends, sounds like holiday cheer.  My sister was telling me about her menu, for today’s Thanksgiving feast (she lives in the States).  It was interesting to learn that mashed potatoes were not just “mashed potatoes” as I know it, but, how she specially prepared the potatoes for guests on this special evening of sharing.

Potatoes being carefully peeled and cooked, so they could be mashed and presented in a certain consistency etc.  The care and thought she has put into serving up a dinner for her friends I found heart warming.  Just listening to her explain the shopping for, and the prep done days in advance, the settings, the placement of chairs to accommodate the gathering so that all would be comfortable and feel welcome, was all “new” to me.  Our family has our own “Martha”… I was impressed.

My long time personal friends, will all chuckle and know that “yours truly” does not share my sister’s flare. I felt really proud of her, as she went on about her dinner today.  These were/are her friends, and she for years now, has them over to share in a now, “traditional” Thanksgiving in appreciation and love for their part in her life. My little sister, gave me a warm glow of love and appreciation for HER, I am still basking in it today.

LOL she will be busy today, and seldom reads my blog.. so I can get away with saying nice things about her today…hahahaha

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends…. let us ALL embrace and share the meaning of Thanksgiving, in our lives today and always.

PL Precept #11   Always be with God

meet Ringo

Ringo dot 2 5.6.17

Sometimes we have to do what we want .. no matter what.  Ringo decided he was going to come to visit.   I saw him before he arrived, only I had my own ideas, but his desire to be present over ruled my half-baked idea.

That is what happens in life, we may want something, we have it in our mind, just what we want or what we need to do to achieve or get to our goal,  However along the way, it just didn’t or doesn’t work out that way.  You followed the steps, you went forward the way you thought you should, and when you got to the end.. It just wasn’t the same.  Not that it was a negative or simply not to your liking, it just wasn’t what you had, had in mind.

As an artist/writer, or other creative soul, it is an experience that happens to us often enough.  We are good at adapting, truth be told, we kind of like the hiccups along the way,  It allows for opportunities to experiment and usually go beyond what we have grown comfortable with.

Anticipation

as the days grow warmer the anticipation grows

soon, not only will we celebrate a new day

the new buds of spring will come alive

and the art of the bloom

will bless and bring colour

to skies that have been winter gray

Bees will actively tend their hives

and our toes will be free again

=^_^=

YAY !!!

black-white

ohno-part-2e_007There is a wonderland around us.  We walk through it every day.  There are magical people that pass us by on the street every day.  People with dreams and imaginations just like ours, who from looking at them we would never know that they were actors in their own theatres and plays.  Yet at night they could be transforming the world of others with their creativity and talents.  You need only walk though a museum, see a window display, every where and especially at this time of year, you will see the creative expressions decorating homes and whole streets…. We love to delight.

oh no!

snow-dec-7_003Oh NO! the snowman exclaimed

I’ve lost my head again

As onlookers turned away

and shoppers kept rushing by

All he could do was  gasp and horror

as he saw his nose fall to the ground

snow-dec-7_002all around as the day wore on

people came and went on their way

not once did anyone notice

that the little snowman

was having a difficult day

the fresh snow on the ground

made the parks so merry and gay

snow-dec-7_004there was a shop down the lane

that if only someone would stop

he could tell them the way to find his friends

he knew his friends would come

help him put his head on again snow-dec-7_001with  a sigh of relief,

he saw his friends coming his way

oh joy, oh happy day!

you’ve come just in time

somehow my head fell off

and I’ve been at a total loss

I closed my eyes, and wished and prayed

and now….!!!! joy oh joy…!!!

 

ohno-part-2e_002

I can stand tall and proud again

his nose and smile back in place

he was ready to smile out at the world again.

ohno-part-2e_003

Life can get very busy, especially at this time of year.  We rush from one chore to another, our mind always on the task at hand.  While this is good, being efficient is always a positive, however, take time this year, to make time for your inner self, and for the friends around you who may not have the same holiday cheer you are enjoying.

Often someone really very close by or near to you can be  having a difficult time.  We fail to hear the silent plea not because we don’t care, but because in our “busy” mode, we don’t hear the world around us, we are running on remote control.
