Imagine walking through the woods, hearing water, going to explore and discovering this site. Wow. A lot of beauty has been rediscovered this year with travel restricted to places closer to home, many are revisiting the greenspaces not far from their own “doorstep*”.

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

this morning, the ground is covered in snow

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

Last night when I was clearing the deck it was light and fluffy. This morning, you can see it is heavy and wet. I also note the difference, top picture taken with my Canon (Power shot SX730HS) and this morning’s offerings were taken with my Huawei P20… I love my Huawei =^_^=

Have a splendid day everyone! Whatever comes your way.. I know you will shine through it all.

Offer your service instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

At first when I saw this picture, I thought “nothing like being caught between a rock and a hard place” The second thought that came to mind was ” a rose between two thorns” Still I’m not decided.. but I am attracted to this shot. What do you see, what comes to your mind?

There is always a balance .. hard/soft, fast/slow, flowing/solid…

Have a great day everyone!

wood

There is something about the evolution of a tree, and what we have learned about how it grows, the different types of wood, hardness, texture, colour. I am captivated when I walk into a workshop where wood is being worked on/with. I love the many shapes, forms and characteristics of the different species.

I never tire of discovering an old wooden building/structure

In Wakefield the other day, the wood workers shop was not open when we went, but I got to explore his outdoor work space. Wood everywhere, it was a mini paradise.

I know that pictures are not the same as being there, but I’m sure for those of you who love this kind of “setting” as much I do… you can almost smell the wooden wonder of the place. In the back of this property is a babbling brook. YES I not only got a visual “high” I had the ambience of the running water and clear blue skies. YuppeeDoooo!!!!

We all have different ways of feeling and thinking. Let’s always accept others differences and respect one another. Remember that “different strokes for different folks” is the key to having harmonious relationships with the people around us.

garden at night

Just when I thought I had all the leaves… I noticed tonight when I let the dogs out.. that “oh NO! more leaves to fall”! How on earth did I not see them the other day… Goes to show me that I am not as observant as I think I am! This little corner got completely missed.

I must admit tho’ that I found the little vignette rather pretty. I even came back into the house to collect my camera.

my first night photos with my new Canon =^_^=

Always there is a positive to be found ! Note to self, bring in my garden “keepers” for the winter. =^_^=

Be thankful to your parents and to your Ancestors. You are here today because the “torch of life” has been continuously passed down. Always remember to be thankful.

Tomorrow, is the 11th of November, in PL we will be doing the Ancestors Day service at 10:a.m.

shadows in the fall

Fall and winter is when we get to see just how many trees there are in the the forest If you happen by at just the right time, you get to see their shadows adding to the design of the textures on the ground.

We had a light dusting of the snow still on the ground from the snow that fell the other day. Today with the warmer weather, it could disappear, in my next shot you will see the wonderful earthy colours of the ground that was more open to the sunshine.

I love the fall. Simple statement that I make each year. The season never fails to thrill me with its bountiful warm rich colours.

Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.

Mother Nature is the energizer for us all. Return that energy with your smile. Share your smile today!

Happy Oct. 30th.

lanterns from the garden

Years ago I saw this plant and knew I had to have some in my garden. Now I have a wonderful bed of lanterns, so pleasing to the eye. It was my friend Eartha tho’ who took the initiative to actually get a picture before the frost comes and puts them all to bed for the winter. Thank you Eartha.

We all have good intentions, we all have creative ideas, and we all have at times missed out on our opportunities to follow through. That is why I have such an appreciation for the difference and the uniqueness of my friends. Life is so much richer and fuller when we embrace “new” encounters/situations. I give thanks everyday for my friends, I am so blessed,

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.

We are all facing the challenge this year on how we will celebrate (Hallows Eve) Halloween. A time when many enjoy the crazy silly ways we can welcome the coming season, and say good-bye to the summer. In Canada we already have had Thanksgiving, but our neighbours in the States, are preparing for theirs. Pumpkins, and all the trimmings of that holiday are bountiful in the shops and outlets. Fall is a brilliant season!!

However you decide to spend this week-end.. be safe, be careful and stay well.

a tree

stood alone
but not on its own
a cow on its own
but not alone

With the wind and rain of yesterday, already, many of the trees are bare.. When cows lie down (said me Mom) “its going to rain” Rain it did, it poured, it pelted the car windows, it filled the gutters, it washed away the dust and grime, leaves fluttered to the ground, it was a wet new world all around.

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Thomas Edison

A pessimist makes difficulties of his opportunities; an optimist makes opportunities of his difficulties.

Harry Truman

The teacher who is indeed wise doe snot bid you to enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.

Kahil Gibran

You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. when you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.

Another way to enjoy the fall colours, and the creativity that happens when the fall season begins. Today at church we were reminded that soon we will be turning back the clock! Yup, October 31. Where does the time go, it seems to be flying by!

Wishing you all a very happy and productive week.

Monday, October 19th.

Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself, your true beauty will shine through.
