Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute. And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.
Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t. They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.
There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered. This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them. Until I actually say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.
Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap. They instinctively know, that there will be no sharing.
Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily? Are we considerate of others? Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day. Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.
Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync. This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere? Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.
Bom Dia, A happy greeting to you..
Today, while picking up a newspaper for my husband, I spied this colourful book. Bring Back the Bees by Paulette Bourgeois and Josee Bisaillon. It was so eye catching that I asked to see it. Hello, it is a give away at Chapters Indigo. It is Produced by Kids Can Press, and sponsored by Honey Nut Cheerios.
It has beautiful illustrations, rendered in watercolour, collage and digital
I am very interested in saving the bee population, and believe that more awareness is needed … therefore I am sharing this information with you.for more info. bringbackthe bees.ca
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”

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 ***

I want to cheerfully say…
Good Morning everyone… however, having been awoken to activity, and then have 2 full-grown whippets try to snuggle down with me.. ((((who let me add, wanted their breakfast)))) shall we just say, “happy Saturday” and get up to meet the day.
I know you have met little Piglet, but I have been working on texture, I think that you are able to glimpse it. What you can’t see is Piglet’s nose is shiny, with a wet look. I’d love to know what is at the bottom of the cup, she seems so pleased with herself. From the smudges on her face, ?? anyway, she seems happy. That is all we can ask for isn’t it. A happy Piglet.
In life there are circumstances we can control, and other’s we can’t. A wise person once said, “know when to pick your battles”
Today’s PL Calendar page reads, “Listen” and “See” With Careful Attention and Accept Each Other.
“Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any preconceived notions. Then you will be able to see their true intentions.”
I like this card, I no longer have it, but still have this picture .. Makes me smile, YOU make me smile, Let us all have a day where we share our happiness with others.
