return to P23

I knew it was time to head back to the car when the mosquito repellent was loosing its effectiveness.

when the sun is in the right place, and the reflections in the water are crystal clear

A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

new adventure

today I’m going back to meet up with a wildlife nature photographer who has a new idea for capturing what our forest friends are up to. He has invited me to join him to show me what he has been up to.. yeah! except I’ll have to cope with the mosquitos, Eliza has thoughtfully offered up what she uses… guess who is going to pause here to see if the product can be found here. We are on lock down, only essentials are open. fingers crossed.. (note to self, save to draft)

Perceiving equals doing. Each time you notice something, it is a gift from God. don’t miss the opportunity to act.

Thursday doors

When I saw these hobbit homes, that Shirley took when she was on a tour of Hobbiton NZ, I knew I would have to ask her permission to share them. She graciously agreed.

https://www.hobbitontours.com/it is of course the movie set for Lord of the Rings.

We are all wonderful in our own way. Although results are important, your effort is what is truly precious.

new growth on the forest floor

New beginnings… a walk along the pathway showed me so much new growth, I was encouraged, after a long cold winter, the ground is thawing, photographers are showing us the wonderful blooms that are showing up all across the city. Coming out of church yesterday, the tulips were showing their happiness, looking up into the sunshine.

For the sake of others, society and world peace. Always live keeping in mind everything you do is for the sake of others, society and World Peace

we are in this together!

today’s walk

Today began in a very uninteresting place. It was such a dismal day, I actually went back to bed. Something I never do, the rain was not hard, but constant and the skies a multitude of shades of gray and bleak. Rather than face the negative thoughts and dismal attitude, I went back to bed. Keeper (my faithful whippet) obviously thought it was a good choice, she joined me (something she does not do, once she is up she usually prefers to stay up and nap in my office or sun room)… Velcro in his wisdom decided to stay in the living room where he could keep track of the comings and goings on the street. In other words, security watch.

I feel my whole body relax as soon as i enter the woodlands

Brian and I used to go to another trail off Leitrum, the parking lot was there, little else except the remains and debris that accumulates in an uncultivated area over the years. It was used mostly in winter by skiers who wanted to do winter trails. I think its called P19 now. What a difference 8 -10 years make. I walked down the winter trail, it was very muddy, I spent a bit of time collecting wood to make a trail over the mud. When I got home, I cleaned my Bogs (boots) in water, so they will be ready to go again next outing. That was my excitement … I came home feeling refreshed, altho’ going out in the afternoon is very foreign to me, mornings are my time to hike/walk/explore. On the bright side, … it will soon be bed time..

sigh, everyone’s a critic

Be creative in your efforts. If something is not going well, take a step back and look at how you are tackling the problem. There is sure to be something you can improve on.

Fiddle heads

What I came away with was a HUGE craving for steak med. rare with a side dish of fresh fiddle heads. So much so, I cut my “walk” short and headed for the local fresh fresh grocers (Farm Boy) Came home, seared a steak, tossed a salad of greens and shrimps, with a side dish of steamed fiddle heads with melted butter..

I found this woodlands to be more like a park, not so much the rugged, wilderness of other trails. the paths are well worn and the width of a rural road, I’ll have to go back another time and really wander further into and down trails that lead further in. Today I was always hearing the traffic going down Anderson. Even tho’ I was early, shortly after 8, there were other visitors, so a lot of meeting up with other hikers/walkers.

Take the first step with determination. A wishy washy attitude will not help you get a good start on things. The minute you make up your mind to do something, things will start moving forward.

forever- always

silent Sunday, sort of….

I stopped for a minute and got lost in the moment.

busy grooming

I had already realized that my Nikon was no longer going to perform having received the battery tired message. These were taken with my cell phone. I tried to capture him with his face towards me, but he just wouldn’t stop his grooming.

This duck was another one who visited, he actually started to come up to me, then the squirrel intruded. I possibly insulted him calling him a bird, and not recognizing he was a duck. I’ve never had occasion to call or converse with a duck before !!

The birds/ducks were all over the place today, I should have gotten there earlier, I would have had more time, as it was I only got to explore on the other side of the road, not the part of Mud Lake I had been on before.

This side of the road the walking is more difficult, a good pair of hiking boots would have been best.
paths were rugged, rocky and wound up and down the landscape. I’lll add it was cold today, there were other photographers everywhere.
notes on this Saturday’s adventure from Mud lake.

PL Precept #1 Life is Art…. Life is also an adventure… live it to the fullest.

Good enough

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

This bird is so beautiful so majestic -I look forward to the day, I get to see one myself

Be careful about saying “It’s probably good enough” Wholeheartedly do what you notice, when and how you notice it.

I want to say how much I appreciate the above photographers who so graciously allow me to share with you their awesome captures. My heartfelt thanks Kevin, Num and Ed, you are “tops”. See Instagram for more of their work.

stay safe

Lime kiln -Monday

Be very careful about doing things you really like. Do everything in moderation, when you overdo, you’ll lose your balance.

Perfect Liberty 2021.26

This is a good one for me to pay attention to. I have a tendency to get carried away if I start doing something that I really like doing. I can get lost in the project/moment, creating an issue or lack of time for something else I “should” be doing.

For instance today I was headed for Jack Pine trail, I wanted to add it to my list of nature trails that I have to too .. and to start a file on it… that I can expand on as the days/months roll by, Driving by Lime Kiln I thought to take a quick look at the cut trees that had been downed the other day. The quick moment turned into a better part of half an hour. There were black birds in the area I was .. I started to focus on getting a good picture of them.. then realized that if I did that, time would be taken from my trip to Jack Pine.. why did I have to watch the time… … I’d been to Costco, and had items in the car that needed to get to my freezer… like duh.. multi tasking has its own set of problems one has to watch for and pay attention to.

Have a good start to the new week everyone!
