There is one thing to say about snow that I really enjoy. As soon as I wake, I can hear the difference, The world (on the street around me) is quiet.
The leaves, and colour that remained on the ground is now. A blanket of white.
Bom dia a todos.Utilize all of your potential!
Utilize todo seu potencial. Don’t hold anything back, Give today and every day your all.

Bom dia, good morning
Lego, Lego, it has been around for years. I never played with it in years gone by, and had no intentions of playing with Lego now. One should never say never. Lately I have been introduced to the many “wonders” of the Lego world of activities, I thought for the younger generation, however, I have since learned that Lego is played with by the young and old, and that collectors are hugely abundant.
In my travels I came across this set. #75951 Fantastic Beasts. I thought to give it a try. It was not in the cards. My fingers lacked the coordination and my aging gray matter rebelled unkindly to my intentions. A friends grandson, I was told was a super whiz at building Lego, and that my little 100 some blocks would be sneeze. His accomplishments are in sets that have thousands of pieces. I shudder at the thought, what patience he must have. I surrendered my little horse and carriage.
And look dear friends, I have it back and it is a beauty. I am thrilled. The young man is now my Lego hero my knight in shining armor. I will never think of Lego in the same way again. btw notice that the heroes are younger now.. or is it I am getting older.
PL calendar day 14 Be a Person who invites happiness
Live your life with good timing and respond quickly to whatever appears in front of you. By doing so, things will keep getting better and better.
Life is continually bringing a lot of happiness and love into my world. I feel such gratitude and appreciation for my friends, each and every one of you.
The other day, I drove by a work site, and saw the mounds of earth, with their new growth. It rocked with me I loved it. So much so, that I went back and drove into the construction site, to take pictures.
My very own treasure chest, the dry earth, the cracks, loved it all. I really do marvel at the way nature provides me with such wonders. actually it is for everyone, but some how I don’t think everyone gets as chuffed up as I do about such things.
To have had a macro lens I would have been up there trying to catch every nook and cranny that took my fancy.
We are all different, we all take in the world around us in our own way. That is what makes the environment and the populations in it, so intriguing and inspiring.

and we are all unique in our own way. What bounty, what tremendous source of inspiration … live happy, be happy, learn, grow and pass it on.
PL Precept #15 All is a Mirror
My love to each and every one of you. Oyashikiri
visions that danced before my eyes
simple beauty that caused my mind to stray
Every day we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away. Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.
It is at such times that I am reminded how priceless good friends are. A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way. Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.
and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams. The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way. Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.
I loved the gummies, anyone care to translate… (when I figure out this bilingual keyboard I will know how to do a question mark )
PL Precept #16 Each moment is a turning point
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. =^_^= *****

Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it
Found this quote in one of my profiles. I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.
There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”. For sure, what I am living is my personal experience. Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen. Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present. To succeed I have to be present.
Every frame of the “scenes” being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”
Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.
Enjoy the first day of a new month.
Happy Canada day everyone!
