leaves on water

Had a little fun with a photo of leaves I took that were fallen over on the water…. the early morning dew was still on one of the leaves.

Till soon

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

I started out with the intention of walking around the bog at a very slow pace. I wanted to concentrate on how quietly I could walk. As often happens, the bird calls, the textures of the various plants were distracting for me. I found myself taking pictures (what’s new!!). As I slowly made my way around the trail, I met a couple who were also out for a morning stroll. I think one of the greatest joys is meeting new people who share the love of the land.

In PL, we believe that PL #18 Each moment is a turning point.. how true, the pleasant visit, the exchange of ideas and information left me with lots of possibilities to put on my “to do” list. Places I have not been to in a long time, they reminded me of in telling me of their experiences. I feel a happy anticipation, a couple of the places they brought to my attention, I used to visit when my husband and I traveled the backroads.

We are heading into a new week – lets in following the teachings of PL, remember that .. PL # 15 All is a Mirror We should try to start each day with a smile .. PL Precept # 2 To live is to express One’s Self. If we are smiling and happy, people around us, will feel the positive energy…

Energy Springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

Friday 2nd July

Where does the time go…
There are no empty spaces between the trees now, everything is covered with vegetation all vying for a place in the sun.

PL Precept #16 All things progress and develop.

Nowhere can this be seen more when walking the nature trails – the landscape changes every day, there is always something new to see or find. I didn’t crop the second picture, I wanted you to see the wall of vegetation that is so abundant with life.. The bird songs are always floating over the land, coming from all directions. Woodlands are alive with activity.

PL # 16 Tudo progride e se desenvolve

Be well –

loving you always and forever

pretty textures

I managed a few pictures of the sun and shadows that played amongst the ground cover on the forest floor. I confess to giving in to the hoard of biting mosquitos that swarmed all around me. This is the first time they have managed to get up my sleeves, and /or bite through the flannel shirt I was wearing. My arms are covered in bites/welts, I will be taking allergy pills for the rest of the day.

I have a video that I somehow took while capturing the pictures I got this morning. Try as I might I don’t know how to size it so it will show up here. You can actually see all the activity of the mosquitos flying back and forth around the lens of the camera. If someone out there also on WP can offer a suggestion I’d appreciate your comments. What I have is 1:48 minutes long. In the past I just insert and it has copied, but not today.

Tell yourself “Things happen” Even if something is inconvenient once you accept it you will be able to move onto the next step.

Nature always wears the colours of the spirit.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Look up, look up

The standing tree minus any leaves or sign of life, was surrounded by lush vegetation. On the other side of all the green was the St. Lawrence. I tried to capture the dozen or more ducks swimming along the shoreline but they were too far off, and I didn’t have my camera, being the driver of yesterday’s jaunt, I had not expected to be taking pictures, one should never make that assumption, I’ll eventually learn.

I tried to find another way closer to the water but the only “easy” way was to climb up a grassy embankment and get to the road, and then walk down to the bridge. By the time I parked and got to the bridge, they were specs in the distance. However that said, they were chatting and singing as they sailed down towards wherever they were heading. There were a lot of birds in the trees too, we just didn’t or couldn’t see them.

Flowers for you =^_^= may your week be a blissfully happy one, lots of sunshine and tranquil moments to ease you through a stress free week!

You’re happy, I’m happy. Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me” Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

today’s quote

can’t help but wonder, what sound(s) took place when the tree fell

My first “conversation” this morning was with Dan https://nofacilities.com/, a wonderful man who lives with a special dog called Maddie, they eat /share a piece of toast after a walk. In his post yesterday he shows a very contended dog chilling on the couch after a walk, and the shared time with her human,

My second “read” was https://rebeccasrevels.wordpress.com/2021/06/02/day153-footnotes-of-a-forced-hand/ how Rebecca’s had to deal with inconsiderate neighbours who allow their untrained dog to terrorize her dogs that are in her yard, securely fenced in and collared.

Yesterday was a beautiful day as you can see from the above photo, today it is a happy day for farmers, it is raining. Not sure how much rain we will get, but from what the radio announced yesterday, it will not be nearly enough. While in Pennsylvania it has rained, stormed and rained some more, we have had little rain to speak of, just lots of bright sunny days, one after another.

We live in such a complex world, so much is happening all around us, Some we can control, and much of it, is simply out there. There is nothing we can do but accept some of it, work around a lot of it, enjoy and appreciate what we can, and move along beyond what is not in our power to do anything about.

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

the cycle continues

In PL we have the 21 Precepts and 21 Principles to help guide us through the maze of experiences we encounter in life, the ministers and Hokyoshi (assistant ministers) are always available to help/assist ..

Key is PL Precept #11 Always be with God.

#16 All things progress and develop. # 15 All is a mirror # 18 Each moment is a turning Point

Simple statements, yet very difficult to master, we are constantly learning and relearning… believe me, it is not from lack of trying.

Today is a new day, PL Precept # 1 Life is Art… PL Precept # 2 To live is to express one’s self.

Change we all need change in our lives, yet for some unknown reason, the tendency is to hang on. Let’s work to improve ourselves… meditate, find inner peace.. even if it is for a short time. ie. for me its the walks in the woods…

Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy

be safe – you are loved!

Beaver and Chipmunk trails

Be a person who can say “I Like It” Find what moves you the most and express your appreciation.

chipmunks everywhere -not shy either …

They were everywhere, I could hear rustling in the vegetation, they scampered from place to place, up and down fallen trees, up and over rocks, they chatted, they nattered, there was no way you were going to not notice them. When I think of it, the only place I didn’t have them scampering about was when I was on the observation decks.

I saw photographers grouped around a tree, because of the mosquitos and because they were all intent on what they were photographing, I decided best to let them attend to their project with out more human traffic. Guess what I missed!!! A mama owl and her young offspring…. one of the photographers met up with me on the trail, bless her heart she steered me on the right track to get back to my car. She also showed me what she uses when in the bush to ensure she keeps the ticks away, (Deep Woods) another piece of advice for the novice here.. she puts her clothes in the dryer on her return to the house to make sure, any ticks or other unwelcome “insect” that has jumped on for a free ride is annihilated.

On the way home I heard an interview with a weather specialist, our summer it seems is going to be another hot one, maybe not as intense as last summer .. but high temperatures with high humidity for days on end. Not the best for farmers. If you’ve not experienced a Canadian summer (in this region) its not for the faint of heart. =^_^=

Monday morning

A beautiful morning, started at Dewberry and went on next Mer Bleue. I’m pleased with this new app. it tells me that in the last 15 days, I have hit the 50K mark.. Not sure what that is, I still measure in miles, but I do know I average 2 miles a day. (tracked data)… often I don’t have the app tracking .. I’m active, but the cell phone is sitting on a side table or on my desk. Such is life =^_^=

Also note, that today I used a stronger repellent, and I’m pleased to report, that I was hardly bothered by pesky insects. I could see them swarming, but they kept a good distance from me.. I actually stopped. sat on a bench and closed my eyes, allowing the sun and sounds to filter through and just enjoy! It was delightful.

Leaving Mer Bleue I saw two wild turkeys cross the road, and walk along on the side of the road, but on the other side of the ditch. I know I took pictures, but can I find them……….no……not at the moment. =^_^=

the vegetation is so lush… I was there very early between 7- 7:30 a.m. might try to get there even earlier later this week.

Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what you should do.

Do things joyfully instead of taking it easy. enthusiastically engage with what’s in front of you. You’ll enjoy it more.

Good morning everyone, I wanted to repost a blog from a fellow blogger in Japan. I loved his blog this morning, it talks about Shinto in Japan, and how in building and in ancient tradition, there is a belief about the supernatural beings who live in the forests, woods, and on the lands. I grew up with similar teachings in the Taoist tradition. The reblog didn’t work this morning, please if you would like to know more, follow this link..https://covingtonandsons.com/2021/05/30/salt-rice-sake-and-prayer/#like-47483

It is a long week-end for you in the States, please enjoy the day whatever you are planning.

For us here in Canada, we are starting a new week- please stay safe, be well..

Reminder, June 1. we will have a 10 a.m. service at church (1st of each month, Day of Peace ceremony)

This morning I will take my cell so I can clock my steps/mileage for my walk prior to morning service.

following the trail

Pictures of some of the “ladies” that were on display today… the vegetation is growing in leaps and bounds, won’t be long and the road will have reduced by half. It (vegetation) is coming in on both sides.

I’ll do it later. No, I’ll do it now. To make progress, do anything while its still fresh.

Perfect Liberty 2021.25

Today’s visit was longer than I expected it to be. I found that the trails I would have or had been taking, were not that inviting. With all the new growth, they were dark, and from a distance, I could hear the hum of mosquitos. Not inviting. I sprayed on the repellent and took off down the paved road. Thought I’d try to find the green gate on my own. Not that it would be difficult, it was just a matter of walking till I came upon it.

The spine that I should you pictures of in previous blog.. was at one time found just in, beyond the gate. Its been weeks now since the first “hiker/walker” found it… I doubted it would still be there, still I decided to venture in beyond the gate.

this was what I was hoping to find. I didn’t see any trace of it.

What I did encounter was an immediate invasion of cannibal minded mosquitos. They were everywhere, swarming around my head, trying to bit through my sleeves.. Not pretty. When I left the car I thought to bring my “Off”.. but I didn’t.. obviously my protection I had sprayed on when started out, was not going to hold these attackers off. I made a quick exit back to the open road.

The new tracker app that a friend suggested I put on my phone, has been fun, it tells me how many miles and steps I do. I’m happy that with each outing I’m getting better, and able to go just that little bit further without huffing and puffing! LOL there is hope for me yet!!

Take care everyone, enjoy whatever it is you are embarking on….

and BE HAPPY!!!
