sometimes out of nowhere

tree coventry 1

you don’t know why

but there it is,

you’ve been beckoned by a  tree

it is just a tree you say

either way,

here you are

tree coventry

examining and wondering

what the message will be

after all, there is something

really special about the tree

look how proudly and

beautifully it shows off its scars

life is not always easy

for a tree

Tree on RCMP coventry

suddenly by jove

you see the cutest of faces

smiling at you

love at first sight =^_^=

always now I’ll know

when I drive by

my friend, the tree

will be looking out for me.

Chop Suey Saturday

off in the distance,

under the afternoon skies

they saw the same grouping

that they were looking at

just down the path

half covered by vines

background 7.29.17

Neither spoke

they stood rooted on the spot

another mystery

to be uncovered

journey doll 7.29.17c

Yvette arrived earlier

Clementine was due next week

excitement was building

Rosie promised she would

let them explore her

chest of drawers

they still had no idea

where the music came from

it happened when she was

working in her room,

and now, double statues

3 maidens high above

and 3 maidens on the ground

somewhere there was a clue

quietly no words spoken

they turned

walking deeper into the gardens.

chest or coffin 7.22.17

neither saw the chest hidden further in

from where they had been standing.

Happy Monday

How nice, another birthday card.  Rosie sipped on her tea, and listened as the movers grunted and called out to each other about the best way to get whatever it was they were moving into the house.  Her birthdays usually came and went without much fanfare, but this time, she had to admit, all the activity of getting the “girls” settled in was a lot of fun.

Each was so different, and the luggage and pieces of furniture that were arriving each day, was so fascinating.  So far, the silver dragon sculpture had been the best, although the very old roll top desk was also interesting. packages of odd sizes and shapes arrived day and night.  She was so glad she had accepted the offer to be here.

Even her old chest of drawers fit in, her room was big enough for her to enjoy the privacy of her room when she needed it.  Yet close enough to the kitchen and public area, for her to keep an eye on the coming and goings of the participants in the project that had brought them all together.

Birthdays were such happy times.  She wondered how old she was… but then, catching sight of herself in the mirror, she smiled.  Who cares she thought.. It is how I feel, and darn it all, I feel pretty good.

roses for Rosie

*knock *knock…” Roses for Ms Rosie”…. said a voice…

The day just couldn’t get any better thought Rosie.  Every day was so full of surprises.!

We hope you had a grand day dear friends… join us again for tidbits on Rosie and her friends.

a dragon appears

dragon 1

Yes she knew he was not real, of course he was made out of pewter, and the blue gemstones were not the best… or so she was told…  then why did she feel that he watched her every move.  She wanted ChenMay to be there, but ChenMay was not with her, ChenMay was in another part of the grounds.

She hadn’t seen him at first, and now she didn’t know what had made her look down.  As soon as the sunlight had gleamed on his eyes, she had known to stop.  She searched her mind to try to recall what ChenMay had told her about the dragon.  The dragon was part of the Wizardology   classes that ChenMay gave each fall to new Apprentices.

dragon 2She looked closer, and saw the defined scales all over his body, he was majestic.

“Oh there you are” ChenMay’s voice drifted towards them, as she approached where they were standing.  “You’ve met ” she smiled as she bent to pick up the dragon.

Leonie would say later, that one minute the dragon was on the ground, and the next he was gone.  ChenMay bent down, and when she stood, the dragon was gone. ” I saw him” she would exclaim, “he really was there, his scales shone in the sunlight. ”

ChenMay would only say, “dragon’s play, dragon’s fly away” then chuckle and turn away.

oh dear, oh dear,

what a silly tale

a dragon who can be seen

 then simply

disappear

can this be true

what need I do

to have the dragon

appear to me

or is there a story

PL Precept # 20 Live Maintaining Equilibrium between Mind and Matter

There is a world of wonder all around us!

why?

IMG_0622

Why?

I tried, I wanted to

I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,

pristine white, blank pages,

for days I even  practiced the different styles of lettering

anticipation high, time to doodle and write.

Yet when I got to where we were going,

Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering

The pads of blank pages, came home empty.

Why?

It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries,  a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a turning point.

When we live in the NOW, there are no regrets.

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

May happiness and good health bless your day today!

lazy day musing

 

Spent a lazy day, painting and trying to resolve a technical problem on the PC.  Am  I the only one who asks, PC or Apple?  I have both, each has their own special features that I enjoy.  but neither satisfies me 100%

P1000693Such is the way of life.  A philosophical conversation years back, Can a husband and a lover be one and the same?  Or do you have to settle on which  qualities you want to spend the rest of your life with.

IMG_3014

Don’t you just love the solid look of this old charmer, it has been so well looked after.  While someone wanted the top one, but has left it out in the elements, the inside of it is ruined.

P1000696

This beauty was ready to roll. The dealer wasn’t open when we happened by, and there was no signage on the vehicle.  So I was left with no choice but to steal a kiss and run. =^_^=

Our Honda Ridgeline was secure in the knowledge that she can accommodate all 4 us, in a way the  two seater could never do….You may love the wicked ones, but it is the solid good drives that keeps you humming from year to year. =^_^= .

P1000701 (1)

I appreciate a good-looking body, especially one that has been well looked after.  You can always tell when there is pride of ownership.  Today we take too much for granted.  Life is to enjoy, and living is about exploring and discovering. When we are internally happy, the world is a beautiful place.

PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and Others.

NH moment

P1000717 (1)

New Hampshire on an early morning walk.  It is May, I’m taking my time enjoying the fresh morning air, not thinking about anything else but the moment.

P1000716

Only now am  getting to see some of the pictures I took during our time away. A holiday is time for me to wander, some pictures were taken with my Lumix, others with my iPhone.  Slowly I will get to them, for tonight, I wanted to drop in and say hi… I’ve missed you all.  It wasn’t till we were on our way back today that I gave in and bought an Acer Notebook, sorry to all you Apple peeps, I simply can’t work away on an iPad like I can a Windows/PC…

P1000718 (1)

You won’t see a lot of sunshine, just a lot of fresh mountain air, and the fresh new buds of new sprouts. When the windows were open we could hear the crystal clear water cascading down the mountain side through the gorge.  Looking out from out two side windows, all we saw was the drop down to the forest floor.  Already the bears have started to stir, one guest who stayed in one of the back “cabin/rooms” saw a bear wandering in the wooded area, in back of the Inn a few days before we arrived.  We were advised not to let our dogs off leash or unattended.

P1000710

We did drive down one day into the southern part of NH, where the bigger cities are, we didn’t stay long, a few hours. that was all we needed before we high tailed it back up north into the National Forest area, where we were staying,  Holidays are never long enough, but, we know we will go back, and really, I missed being home, and chatting with you.  Go figure. I love my time with you.  Makes me feel good.  Now I’ll be able to catch up on what you all have been doing.

It is late in the day, but to all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day.
