Scallop noodles – 1 cluster, cook, drain and cool
Solid light tuna in vegetable oil (99g) use the oil to mash eggs and avocado
Fresh garlic stem*, thinly sliced (to taste)
Fresh crisp lettuce
Sweet red pepper
Green onion and slices of sweet onion (to your taste)
2 hard-boiled eggs
1 large avocado scooped and mashed with the eggs
salt pepper to taste
mayonnaise 1 big tablespoon
Tossed together this is a great easy salad – other seasoning can be added as your taste dictates, ie, squeezed lime, ginger, wasabi…. it is your call.
Make this a day to remember, like a salad, how we put things together, the choices we make, all become a creation of our own doing…..
*garlic stems, I have only found at Asian groceries they are not chives, they are shaped like a pipe cleaner, taste is crisp, and can vary from mild to strong in taste. sold in bunches
PL Calendar – day 9 – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU
A person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about. An optimistic person will attract happiness. A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.

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!
Sunday Monday – Happy start of the week everyone….
Bom dia…thought to start the week off with some colour. this was a water-colour I started, it has advanced several steps since the picture, but.. that was the beginning or part of it anyway. Blending, and marrying of different colours, adding texture, and different strokes applied with changing the brush. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is a surprise.
Life is Art, (PL Precept #1) how we decide on what steps we will take, to address challenges/opportunities, will dictate the outcome. We can either accept what we “see” or take creative measures to embellish or completely change what “was”
PL Calendar -day 2- Be Forever Young and Seek New Challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.
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.

HI. =^_^= Wanted to show you a page from one of my art journals. This picture so delighted me at the time, I couldn’t pass along the magazine or get rid of it. Finally I started an Art Journal, or a Junk Journal… in it, I put in the various ” art pieces” that have caught my attention. This is one I wanted to use today, but… didn’t fit. So adding it in a post script.
Life offers us so much that challengers our creativity, it is staggering. I love it.
I accept that life isn’t always “fun” but it is powerful, it is an emotion that transcends words, happiness is LOVE and LOVE is GOD.
Day 30 PL Calendar
USE YOUR RESULTS TO MAKE THE NEXT TIME EVEN BETTER
Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.
Standing under the branches of the towering trees
looking out, to my left and then my right
shades of green everywhere, bright sunlight dancing through
outstretched limbs that reach for the sky, in prayer
how can I cry, it is
so peaceful, so serene
alone with my thoughts, surrounded by nature’s embrace
life is full, it is plentiful, it is full of grace
a child of the Universe, I am, ONE with GOD
Baby bananas how cute is that.
Come on now. Baby bananas.
Have a banana-rama Saturday everyone. Catch the rays, ride the trails, simply kick back relax and enjoy what the world has to offer.
Listen ** See ** Accept ***
PL calendar #24 Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions. Then you will be able to see their true intentions.
Listen and See with Careful attention and Accept Each Other
