Canadian mosquito,,, wicked pest

they are tiny,hungry, sting, bite and are aggressive

my heartfelt appreciation to all the birds that feed on these nasties.

When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you ar able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

morning missive from Japan. –

πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€ 2022/05/12 [Lilac] The flower language is “an important friend.” There are a lot of people around you. “Treasure” is hidden. “Treasure” doesn’t make money. You’re involved, you’re accepted, you’re cared for, you’re cheered up, Sometimes they worry and encourage me. Such an important companion is a treasure that money can never buy ☺️ And you are someone’s treasure. Your kindness is my treasureπŸ₯°πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈ

Re- mosquitos .. started noticing them the other day. It wasn’t too bad, the odd bit of buzzing, but yesterday they were bolder, I suspect with each passing day they will get more persistent. Time to find another way to get my walking in. Something to ponder on. for sure.. long sleeves, neautral colours.. note to self, they bite through some clothing, somehow they even manage to get into your hair and will find any open areas to get at your skin. I am not exaggerating their zeal.

Have a grand day everyone, we have been experiencing weather in the 80’s here. day after day, we are not in the summer season yet. Forecast is for sunny skies and a lot of record breaking heat.

Today is Thursday Doors... I invite you to follow this link to Dan’s site to see all the wonderful doors that will be posted by fellow door aficionados https://nofacilities.com/2022/05/12/other-cheney-structures/

interesting?

the ground is still very wet in areas… this part of the conservation forest is so beautiful

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm

The trees, are plentiful, the ground is boggy in places, the roots don’t go down that deep . in the winter, with the cold freeze, the changing temperatures, trees fall over… limbs break, they land wherever .. sometimes I wonder how they end up where they do.. but . they do end up across paths, some are bigger than others, some have lain there for a long time and they are in various stages of returning to the earth.

My frustration with my self.. is that I love to spend time wandering therefore I encounter deliquent limbs branches, stumps etc. that for some reason end up across a path, or parts of the limb are obstructing easy movement in some areas..AND I without thinking bend over and lift/move them out of the way. Or I see that the way something has fallen or rolled down an incline is hindring or fallen on new growth, of say a fern or other ground cover that is seeking to reach up into the new day.

I forget that my left/knee and hip are still recovering from a serious “strain” that occurred in the fall.. and my rib is still healing… my body was very vocal last night, Today no walking the trails. The “wee” ones will have to wait till tomorrow for my visit. =^_^=

Tomorrow is Ancestors’ Day, there will be a ceremony at 10 a.m. in all PL churches across the world, enabling us to express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and those who have touched our lives with their love/guidence.

It is by daily walking through this wonderland that I am learning of all the many species of birds and wildlife that share it with me See all the new growth, I marvel at the progress it makes . I get to see it push its way throught the carpet of leaves and other matter that is decaying, reaching up into the morning light, I am inspired and filled with awe.

2022.05.10 [Always do your best with a spirit of learning] Everything is said to be experience and study. If you live your life with this mindset, you will learn many things over time.There is boundless progress and improvement there. Also, don’t forget to learn while having daily conversations with other people, and try your best to express yourself without being distracted. translated in Japan to English.

Life is briliant, it is wonderful, and when it is filled with love/appreciation it is awesome beyond words

till soon

Happy Mother’s Day!

Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life.

Benjamin Disraeli

Loss is painful. It’s natural for us to grieve over things we’ve lost. And it takes time to fill the hole left by a loss. The larger t he hole, the longer it takes to fill it. At some point, though, we need to put painful feelings aside sot hat we can get on with the business of living. this doesn’t mean ignoring or forgetting our loss, but, rather recognizing that life is a gift that we have a responsibility to honor. We honor what we have lost as well when we learn from our loss, incorporate it into who we are and move on. Loss is natural and unavoidable. I understand and accept t his.

noticing now

I woke with too many thoughts running through my head. So much so, I wanted to turn over and pull the covers up over my head. Then I remembered that today was the 21st. and a day for giving thanks for the blessings in my life. Followed by that thought came the reminder that my late husband’s birthday is this week-end.

These doors are on campus in Japan (PL headquarters Foreign Student building). We would roll out the futons at night to sleep, and then roll them back up during the day.

I think I may have a fuddled day. My thoughts seem to be drifting from one place to another. This next picture was in Quebec. (top picture too)

Maybe I will just stay where ever my day takes me… and say thank you for whatever comes my way.

Thank you thank you thank you… Let’s live with gratitude towards everyone and everything all day today.

Sorry folks, I’ll just say thank you.. and log off.. the grey cells are just not wanting to activate. As I continue on with my day, I’ll remember that every moment is an opportunity to practice (mindfulness) and be aware that – this too shall pass….

Silent Sunday

Start today with a fresh outlook. PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror…

Till soon

storytellers ..

Hello… I took a different path today while wandering in the woods.. Look at what I found. Anyone have an idea, or story on how this came to be?

Mr. Racoon here was my only companion that travelled along with me.. well part of the way.. I did have a hawk fly over who gave me a nod.. but continued on his journey.

I did stop outside the beaver’s home to see if he or one of his family would come along, but, no.. the day was my own. This is where I was, when the hawk flew over head.

Have a joyful day by being a little more creative. You will enjoy your day more by adding a little creativity to your daily activities.

Wonderful Wednesday

an early morning by the water

Good Morning… ordinarily I would have cropped this picture,, I was interested in the fallen tree when i stopped to grab the picture – but when I saw it on the screen I was loath to cut away the quiet flowing water.. it was so beckoning. stretching its shimmer across to the distant shoreline. I left it. LOL my choice.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Ancestors Day

Ancestors’ Day ceremony is today at 10 a.m. If you cannot make it to the church for the actual service, please take a moment to pray (moment of silence) to express your gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors. Ask for protection and guidance, that we may continue to live the PL WAY.

You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for World Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.
