new beginnigs

Sitting out in the sunshine yesterday, I marveled at how in just a few days the trees had doubled their foliage, even the magnolia seemed happy in her spring frock of pink/purple blooms. The long week-end just past, traditionally is when the gardeners plant get their summer gardens going, but this year, due to the frost warnings still in effect (overnight).. I heard many are waiting for another week or two for the warmer weather to really take hold.

For me, sitting out on my deck… it was wonderful, cool enough there were NO biting insects.. my guests and I could simply sit and enjoy the sun’s warm rays and the clear sky. I did see the pollen flying about, I’m sure allergy suffers are having to cope. Sending out healing vibes and a happy wave to all.

” Making memories with you, is my favourite thing to do” I found this small card on my studio work table a left over from a card making project I had. I love the thought, and was going to send it to a special friend… then.. the thought came to me that the saying made me smile and think of YOU… so I am posting it here so anyone finding it, and enjoying the sentiment… can share it too.

I feel so blessed, sharing with you over the years… you are locate in far off places some just minutes away, others oceans away, yet… you are all part of the community that I am blessed to have in my life. thank YOU!!

a Quebec moment

When you reach the edge of NOW. The Province of Quebec has many such moments, it is only when you drive through the province beyond the built up areas, when you park, get out and explore. You can find a wonderland of simplicity that can transport the viewer to another time. An example of Nature at her best. In this photo, he* shares a timeless moment. . (*Dave Renz)

I know many a writer who will find inspiration in this photo. It certainly stirred my imagination..

Sun shines bright- Shadows cast – days go by – today there are clouds in the sky – soon it will be midnight and the day will have gone by.

The turning point is now. Life is a sequence of moments called now. You have the key to turn yourself around.

Omega Park

Meet my newest “friend”… yesterday I got to have a wonderful “away” adventure .. Having a friend who will drive and give me a chance to just “ramble” and let my “mind” wander .. take pictures… and basically just chill…. is an amazing way to share a few hours. Boniway is such a friend… it was so wonderful … I got to ohhh and awww at the wonderful animals who came up to the car to greet us… Miss piglet here was such a personality. AND the baby piglets who were trailing around behind her…were just the cutest.

We were favoured with gorgeous weather. The sun shone bright the weather itself was cool and refreshing…. a big enough breeze that there were no mosquitos .. at least… we didn’t encounter any. It was a day of blessings. I even got to cross the river on the ferry, not once but twice. Much appreciation and gratitude in a day makes for a perfect day. Boni… you were super fantastic in your generosity of spirit…thank YOU.

Day of Peace

!st of every month. In Perfect Liberty we have a special service/ceremony… we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds which include our home, school,work and community

Today the 1st is in the month of April and on our calendar here I see that this week, tomorrow for many it is Palm Sunday and later in the week, Passover and Friday is Good Friday leading to Easter week-end. A special time indeed for many.

I found a quote from Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne. “When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles”

How beautiful the world is when we can look around and feel the caring and love of friends/friendships. Some where tho’ there will be someone who needs a kind word or a smile today. If you can be that someone who can share a smile or offer a kindness, please…. try. A smile is priceless when it comes from the heart.

Let’s pray for World Peace. The path to world peace will open up with each person’s prayer for peace.

Good Morning ?Hola!

“Don’t worry, I’ll come to you”, as he/she makes its way towards me, there is a huge puddle (maybe two and a half car lengths and maybe a good 4 -10 inches deep in places) between where I was getting the feed out of the back of my car. I did wade the water and he/she followed me back to the upper area where the other birds were all feeding.. The water could be a problem I heard grumbling that recommendation could be made to shut the parking lot down while it is so “wet”. This morning while it is still on the “cold” side, I’ll brave the darkness and head out soon. The water may still be ice.

BTW, am not a big telly fan, but while I waited last night to meet up with friends, I sat and watched a taped segment of The Masked Singer… I missed the performance but at the unmasking .. I was delighted to see Dick Vandyke, he is 93 now.. wow.. he was still so vibrant and full of energy. His voice was still holding up, he did a few bars of the Mary Poppins song, superfragilistic superallydocious. Inspiration for sure.

We all, no matter our age, have noticed how with each passing year, our bodies show signs of wear and tear. 93 .. yes he looked fragile, but he was never a heavy or big man, he was always tall and lean. Kudos to him for doing such a high energy show and allowing us to enjoy him once more.

That is what life is about isn’t it. Taking each day and doing our best to live it in the most memorable way we can.

Be mindful with Prayer. If you work on things with a prayerful heart, there will be many things you can be taught.

Have a wonderful day dear friend, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, know that someone cares and is wanting only the best for you, today and always.

Sun bathing

This bench is where I did my sunbathing. I cleared off most of the snow, gathered my coat around me and lay down.. closed my eyes and basked in the sunshine. There was a gentle warmth that warmed my face. I was in a happy space. It was so quiet, there were no birds singing, no little critters running about. I had the place to myself. Where was I, in the middle of a bog. It was at least a twenty minute walk to the spot where I was lying down. The boardwalk you can see still has snow packed on the boards, but with the use of my walking stick it was doable. The first bench I came to, (boardwalk photo) was totally covered in hard packed snow. Make no mistake, this area is still in its winter wardrobe.

Sun bathing in winter is not something I usually do. This was a first actually. Would I do it again, yes… it was pleasant, and I liked the silence. If you look at the bench photo, you can see where I dropped a peanut in case a little critter wanted to join me.. I had no takers. What time was all this, somewhere between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30..

“Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

Whoa Slow Down

Remember the rabbit in Alice in wonderland.. ” I’m late.. I’m late… for a very important date!” Is this YOU. Sometimes it is me, and duh… I’m retired… yet I still have moments of “OMG look at the time” and I know that the wildlife and other critters don’t have watches. I stopped wearing a watch years ago. Curious, do you still wear a watch?

When we spend our time rushing from one task/obligation to another, & we seem to be constantly on the go – when do we/you/I slow down, when do we actually regroup, recharge, reenergize?

Let’s find the secret door to a private hide away

Today is your lucky day, it is Thursday Doors, you can visit Dan’s No Facilities site to explore just which door you can disappear through… for your fantasy retreat. But.. remember, it is a visit, you still have to come back to deal with your everyday “stuff” https://nofacilities.com/2023/02/23/wor-union-station-grand-hall/


Life is fragile at the best of times.. Ever since I found the Merlin and got to admire the beauty of her markings and her head I have been haunted by the experience. A small member of the falcon family she often hunts on the fly, catching her prey in mid flight. Today while at the feeders I could hear the crows going ballistic in another part of the woods, I attempted to follow the “noise”.. looking up as I took to the trail. I have never been able to use binoculars without getting a headache.. thinking I might try again with these newer and lighter models. I gave up as the noise grew louder but seemed to be moving further away from the area I was in. I didn’t have my camera with the powerful lens, I wouldn’t be able to see the bird if it was high up in the trees.

What I learned from this incident was that I “knew” and thought it was a Merlin when I saw her lying peacefully on the snow.. but when someone else told me no it was something else, I doubted my knowledge. I have since found out, I was right, this /that angel was a Merlin. I am unhappy with myself that I didn’t 1. take a picture, and 2. take better care in burying her. In PL one of our lessons in life is to learn to trust our inner voices. Here is an example of my not following my instincts, and then living with the consequences. Every life is important.. /has value.

Why am I finding it so hard to shake this little bird’s demise. I don’t know..I can only guess, it was a loss of life and I was privy to the passing on, of this life, Thankfully I didn’t settle for an answer that I got that I felt in my heart was wrong. Every life should be recognized and acknowledged. I have since said a prayer for her little spirit..

I have to practice – letting go.. The little bird is at peace, now I have to find mine. Wishing and hoping won’t bring her back.
