Good Morning, Bom dia!
The day is young and really not decided on what it is going to do. The forecast says rain and lots of it. In our area, there has been a lot of flooding already, this newest bit of rain could be a real disaster for many at risk communities. My prayers go out to all of you at this time.
Across the river on the Quebec side, the military has been brought in to help with the filling of sandbags and volunteers from all around are coming around donating their time. It is in such times that we see how community pulls together despite any differences at other times. Oyashikiri.
What you see above is my trying out a new product, seeing what it can do with a variety of molds or embossing/texture plates. The product used (coloured) is by Finnabair, called Icing paste (Prima marketing), It is through trial and error that I will find how it will work with my particular style of “working”. The challenge and opportunity of discovery. I love it.
PL calendar 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.
Konnichiwa – bom dia!!
What goes around, comes around.... over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten. The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”
PL calendar day 17
Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.
Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are. Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.
With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails. Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well. Each day truly is a new beginning.

I came, and went, laughed, cried, blossomed and flew away.
You missed that moment, didn’t you?
A moment comes, and vanishes, within seconds,
true intentions come from the heart
no day is like another
a moment lost in anger
is time not lived in happiness
with winter comes a calming bliss
purity and stillness
no matter the chaos around us
when we are present in every way
a moment is never missed
life is what we make of it
choices we make,
be happy today, make it a special day
why, because you can!

Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone. A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months. Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment. I am in a “temporary/holding” zone. It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.
I never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.
My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful. On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona, has stood me well. At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.
I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.
PL day 11
Be thankful for who you are today.
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life. Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.
This is a piece of pie (she said)
let me explain,
it is my second piece of pie (she said)
fresh baked, rhubarb & strawberry crumble
a dab of whipped cream
teamed with a fresh pot of tea
not a dream, no
I really intend to eat the whole thing
Yes, that is what she said….
I did it! I did it!
So pleased was she, not a crumb was to be seen
that was one dessert
that made an impact
for now it is a fact
she willingly ate
a second piece of pie
that is no lie
you know who you are!!!!!
you ate 2 pieces of pie.
PL Calendar day 6
Your joy will increase, Once you make up your mind
If you’re going to do it. Do it with determination. your resolve will create good rhythm.
*** my friend made up her mind, she would have a second piece of pie. She did it. We had a jolly time, the calorie count was of no mind. They will be counted another time. =^_^= *****
Perth Tea Room on the main street.
We are lucky to have a “Free Library” on our street. There are a couple in the neighbourhood. I’ve had a peak once or twice, but haven’t had the time to take advantage of the possibilities.
I have been looking for a book to read, but even though we have a ton of books in the house, it is interesting, that I found the interesting enough when I bought them, way back when, but today, they hold no interest. None. I pick one up, read the summary and put it back down. I found one that is a mystery, the detectives are sheep???? what???? when I got that, or where I got it, I have no idea.
Today is anther day, full of promise. Let’s see what is in “store” for me today. Life is full of surprises. Another present? Another discovery?
Till Next time
