Tuesday Tangos

vibrant and playful energy that communicates itself through dance, it is a unique language where the partners, express their desire to listen to, understand and converse with the person they are dancing with.

Multitasking reduces your joy by half. When doing something give it your all. There is joy in everything.

The tango can be many things for different people. it can be light spirited, fast, sensual, a flexible embrace, ahhhh what will you do today…. will you dance to the beat of your own drum…. will you want violins, piano and double bass…

Let’s make today special. Begin with a smile and pass it on..

happiness is sharing with YOU

stop the car!

“Stop the car I would holler”.. however now, I am driving alone, so there was no one to alert. I checked my rear view mirror, pulled over, put my hazard lights on, and got out to capture this moment. Gosh snow can be so beautiful, alluring, and captivating. Never mind that just minutes prior to this scene, I had passed a car that had driven off the road into a scene similar to this one, how the driver had managed that I don’t know.. the side road had been plowed. The car had taken a nose dive into the ditch on the opposite side of the road that it had been headed in.

It was a beautiful day, you can see the sky is a lovely shade of blue. Earlier on my way out to the woodlands, I had passed a long stretch of road where all the vegetation was covered in snow and ice. The lighting was such that it looked like silver and gold encrusted on all the shrubs .. but I couldn’t stop, so I told myself I would get it on my way back. We all know that was not going to happen, the hour or so that had elapsed, meant the lighting would be all different, and I would be on the other side of the road. However…. I did get the above capture, and that pleased me.

My crows were not around today, well not all of them, usually they are in the multiple dozens, today there were only about a dozen, and they were quiet, there was none of the hooting and hollering that I am usually greeted with. It was a sunny day, and milder, they obviously had something else to do and were dining elsewhere. It was also quieter in the glen when I got there. There were just too many people, being such a beautiful day, and the lock down lifted, people were itching to be out on their X-country skies and snow shoes.

At Mer Bleue my second stop, it too was quiet, but it has been so, since I think Dewberry draws the enthusiasts that want to have longer trails. Here I got to stand and bask in the sunlight, while the Blue Jays, Evening Grose beaks, nuthatches, and little chickadees happily went about their business. I felt rooted to the spot where I was standing, a couple of times I was used as a spring board .. I didn’t mind.. in fact, secretly I love it. even the squirrel came over to run across my foot.. just because. =^_^=

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

dreams

promise of things to come

A friend took this picture many years ago, he is someone who came into my life at a time I needed a special friend, he became that friend, His kindness, gentle heart and curiosity about life and relationships was heart warming and had great appeal. He showed me another side of friendship, one I had not explored before. He had a dedicated way of dealing with family/ life that was honest, I appreciated his energy in my life very much. He sent me this picture one day.. I loved it. Tucked it away, so that I would always have a reminder of the “freshness and beauty of/in new life ” that abides in our world.

The gentle kiss of the morning sun embrace the young shoots as they emerge from their sleep .. the melting snow that had blanketed their world, was now nourishing them with its sweet gentle liquid drops. From the harshness of winter & the sweet caresses’ of the soothing warmth in the morning sun, new life was raising up to meet the day. Love so pure, so beautiful, captured in that moment. For me, always to be remembered.

Love is not a dream, love is real.

Once lived, once shared, can never be forgotten.
forever – always

The beauty of

Fresh fallen snow

There is beauty all around us, we have opportunities every day to wonder at the world we live in. It is hard at times to remember that life is good, and that there are new discoveries to be made very day. Stay positive!

This is the bird that has been catching my eye at the feeders. Cute little critter eh!?

Till soon… waves virtual hug your way.

more snow

just posted this on Q’s Story Telling site. (thru windshield)

I admit to at first letting my lazy mind nudge me deeper under the covers when I saw how much snow had fallen. but the call of the wild, the fresh air and the bird chatter got me up. The side roads were in dreadful condition, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Anderson Road was well plowed and clear. However, when I got to the road that leads down to the parking lot of the woodlands, I saw only tire tracks in the DEEP snow. Having come this far, I turned and carefully made my way down the road, following the tracks ahead of me.

Needless to say, I was greeted with a lot of chatter from both the birds and squirrels when I alighted from the car. The parking lot might have been plowed sometime late last night, cuz, it was not in great shape. However, there were a few other cars in the lot, with no sign of people, so obviously they belonged to the early X-cross country skiers/snowshoe enthusiasts Most of the feeders (seed/nut mixtures) were empty, no one had been down the path leading to the feeders so it was a good exercise for me to tromp through the deep snow (Yes I got my exercise)

.As soon as the peanuts and sunflower seeds were put out, the Blue Jays arrived to grab their share. Happily for me I got to spent time with the Evening Grosbeaks who were enjoying the fresh serving of the big seeds they like and of course the side dishes of shelled nuts and sunflower seeds.. what a beautiful bird they are, their colours contrast so much with the blue and white of the Jays.. Maybe its because this is my first year of knowing them, but I love looking at them, their yolk coloured feathers, their sculptured beaks.. I find them very sophisticated looking.

Because of the road conditions, I did not attempt to go down the road to Mer Bleue, when I saw the state it was in, I turned and returned to the city. Stopping only for more birdseed and food supplies for my charges. It was a good day. I very much enjoy the fresh air during my outings. With all the exercise tho’ the shovelling and the walking.. I was ready for an afternoon nap. 🐱

Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing be creative and do things to improve your day.

leave me be

What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.
