PL Calendar #5

A cheerful greeting brings people closer to one another

Interactions between people start with greeting one another.

Take the initiative and be the first to open your heart.


A quilt is made by piecing pieces together, each quilt is different.  Even a quilt done using the same pattern, when done by another person, will end up looking very different.  Choices in size, material, colours used, textiles selected, like people, no two are alike.

A smile, a friendly word, listening with an open heart, make today another special day. Share an invisible hug, smile and say hi!

a winter’s day

winchester fog

Driving through the take out lane, I saw the fog was lifting. earlier, not even an hour or so, I could see only two car lengths  in front of me

I was heading back towards the city now,  with each passing mile, the sky got brighter

building across from po

bright enough, that I thought to stop to take a picture.  Usually I am driving by this site during the work day, and the road is just too busy.  I may have mentioned that I have been wanting to get a picture before the whole building disappears.  It has happened before, I am driving  along a road I travel many times a week when suddenly I realize that a building has disappeared.

The world around me is in constant flux.  For some reason, the demolition, began at a time that for whatever reason, I missed it.  I happened to go to the post office one day (it is across from this location) and when I drove out, it was a “WOW when did that happen???”  That was in the fall, and here it is February of the following year, and there it still stands.

building across from post office

I did see an opening in the fence.  However, my common sense, held me in check.  No hard hat, and not wearing my steel toed footwear.  Maybe I’ll get a chance another day. LOL if I were to find rust I would be in 7th heaven.

This adventure took place last week, today, I am looking forward to what’s ahead.

PL Calendar 18    Look Forward to What’s Ahead.

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

What a good teaching to start a new week.  Hope everyone is enjoying a long week-end, and is revving up for a stunning brand new week.

lobster eh!

Brian and Jon lobster

I want lobster I head for a fish market or to a specialty fish restaurant.  Not my cousin, no.. he and his partner want lobster they head for the wharf, no matter the temperature…Then tease us with photos on Instagram. =^_^=  Obviously they live near the ocean, in this case the east coast.

Meanwhile here we look out at piles of snow and frozen rivers.  An example of how while we live our daily lives, at the exact same time in another “dimension” someone else is experiencing their daily life.  AND.  it is so very different from ours.

The making of another person , is like ours, only the components that make up their personalities and experiences are different.  Yet they love, live, share happiness, sadness and joys exactly the same way we do.

So why I ask .. when strangers meet, if they show differences in their outer presence do we hesitate in reaching out in friendship…

chop suey 12.11.

Dec.11

No, not my birthday, but I am sure it must be somebody’s birthday, somewhere.  With my husband’s surgery fast approaching, I am finding that playing in my studio is a distraction that I find “restful”   In the truck I have been listening to a story about King Henry the VIII’s last wife, Catherine Parr, and the court life she led.  Interesting enough I guess, but I have decided I can do without the court drama.

The radio is either Holiday music, or if it is talk radio… the news, happenings of the day, budgets, politics and again, not what I call ambient for a soothing companion while I travel around doing last-minute errands.

skyline card started 2.25.17

On Sunday, the church was all festive with a decorated Holiday tree, even had lights. That was a nice surprise, I realized that each year, my husband has put up coloured lights on the garage, of  course, this year, that hasn’t been done.  Seeing the lights, reminded me that yes, it is the holiday season… but… for us… we will miss it all, it will be a quiet and hopefully healing one.

The Tree 5.20.17Snow is in the forecast, starting early evening, and, on into the night and most of tomorrow.  For everyone wanting a white Christmas, looks like you just might get your wish.

May the joy of the holidays fill your homes with glad tidings.  The merriment of shared laughter and tender moments be the ingredients of your days, and peace and serenity the balm of your nights.

Zen Friday

be thankful

This little flag was brought back a year ago, it was to fly happily at the church reminding one and all, that we should be thankful at all times.  Somehow, it just never got put up, and it was  only discovered recently again, when I picked up several boxes of goodies I had to be recycled to the House of Lazarus, Community Outreach Mission, in Mountain, Ontario. *

Seeing it again, was uplifting and reminded me that I do have so much to be thankful for.  I kept it, and it hangs where I can see it everyday.  Actually it sits where both my husband and I can see it and rejoice at the blessing we have been given.  An illness is an opportunity to revisit  the purpose of life, and why we are here.

A reminder not to squander your days and nights doing things you don’t enjoy, or with people who are possibly toxic in your world.  Rather than peace, love and caring, they can only offer, negatives.  They project hate, greed and selfishness.

This is the Canadian Thanksgiving week-end.  Families will gather, with friends and family to share the bounty in their lives.

Be sincere, be honest love with an open heart.
