Lego reality

 

lego harry potter fanastic beasts

Meet the Lego Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts Mini figures, this set can be purchased retail.  In it you get the complete set of 22 Factory sealed character pieces.  If you decide not to invest in the whole set, and try your luck at  purchasing individually, then you have to take your chances and purchase a single pack, for 3.99 and hope you get the hero that you want.  Otherwise you keep trying.  I believe that the set in Canadian dollars is about 180$ give or take.

The figures are rather cute, the collector that I am thought,  I want one.  I liked the figure third from the left, front row.  My first bag, I got Harry himself along with his owl, my second try I got #11 (yes they are numbered,) the character with the red hair and green  uniform holding a tea cup. 2nd row, to the right of the other figure I would like, the one with the pointed ears.

My next bag I tore open to find that I got #6, he is standing behind the one I want, in the back row with the green plant.  So far three tries, and each one is  3.99 with tax.  Do you see where I am going with this. By the time I am done, trying to get the two or three that I want, I will likely end up paying for the cost of the full set.  but then what do I do with the other figures?

They are darn cute,  I see the attraction, my reality is, with arthritic  fingers, and often diabetic numbness that visits these same fingers…. I ask myself if this is a collection that I really really want to start  playing with.  Of course the one option is that I find others who would want to trade.  LOL.. somehow I think that the age group I usually “play” with, won’t have any interest in mini Lego figures.

Oh!!! I was smitten by the dragon and figures in Lego #75951 (Fantastic Beasts)  why?  One figure looks like a Chinese magistrate, and the other is a an older character who looks dignified with his white hair.  Grindelwald’s Escape, it is 132 pieces, suggested for ages 7-14.  Take the hyphen away and turn the numbers around, maybe……  the characters are Gellert Grindelwald, and the other is Seraphina Picquery  I did get it, how long will it take for me to put 132 small pieces together.  It is anyone’s guess.  =^_^= will I try?

Some people never grow up, I could be one of them.  However, where my mind might be willing to explore  the opportunities, The body will often give me hints on the realities of actually following through.

To my many Lego adult friends who are Lego buffs, ever think you would see the day???

 

 

faith and coping

sim entendo, yes I understand

Good morning, Bom dia dear friends.  How often do we say these words, yet when we give it more thought, we realize that maybe we didn’t really “get it” or understand it, the way the person was explaining it to us.  Because a lot of my creative expressions that are visual, are abstract, when I am done I have a feeling of satisfaction  I can sit back and see all the many possibilities of what, if anything, had been going through my conscious mind, while I “played”

The other day, I had so much pent-up unproductive energy that I simply exploded, verbal garbage and anger past and present erupted.  Such is life, when we least expect it, poof the angry dragon appears.  Fortunately I am blessed with a happy dragon, and she is more powerful than her counterpart.  She knows the angry dragon doesn’t have the staying power. WE, my dragons and I are happy munchkins.

In PL, we know that Each Moment is a Turning Point.    PL Precept 18

Don’t let a negative moment in the day, ruin your day, accept it and move on.

IMG_0745Bom dia..

Sim yes, my inspiration today is the bark of this tree.  There is something about textures that appeals to me, I paint using textures, I create a lot of “art” dimensional, I have never analyzed why, I just like it.  After a painting dries, I will close my eyes and gently run my fingers over the canvas to discover its hidden delights.

After years of trying to take in all of what I am seeing, I know that I can see a lot of things at one time, some details will stay with me, some won’t.  So much like I did here, where I focused my lens on one area of the tree, I do that with life. I don’t ignore the rest of the picture, but when I see something that is of interest, then I delight in discovering what it is that is communicating with me.

If you are a photographer, you know  we can walk by a landscape a zillion times, then one day, the lighting is just right, shades dance across our vista, and wow, we “see” an amazing sight.  Just like walking out your back or front door, is different every time you walk into the “outside”.  hmmm did she mean to say it that way.. yes I did =^_^=

remember this picture..

IMG_0748Same day, same place, same time of day give or take, but a different tree. Each had its very own appeal to me.  “that day”  I suspect if I went back today, I couldn’t find them again.  Thus the harping on… live each day to your fullest, today is today, and tomorrow will be a new beginning.

After going on about “observation” I will share with you an incident this morning. I washed my hair (I know exciting stuff) as I was towelling my hair I looked down and wondered what was sticking to my night “dress”.  Hello I found the “bleeding” thing has a pocket. No, I didn’t know, and again no, it isn’t new. So you can see what I wear to sleep and around the house, does not get the attention  I give to other areas in my life.  Oh dear! I am human after all.  sigh.

With that, I will wish you all good cheer, make the most of today, I am off to enjoy mine. Thanks for sharing this brief interlude with me.

The other day, this pond was quiet, still.

Yesterday it was populated with a gaggle of ducks happily enjoying the sunshine of an early fall day.

The only constant in life is change.   Life goes on.  Eliza’s post that I reposted to you just before writing this, caught my “mood” perfectly’.

As one life ends, another begins  ——— one door closes, another opens.  This is what life is all about. new beginnings.

being attentive

Good Sunday morning dear friends.

Day 15 – PL Calendar – Being attentive makes life more enjoyable.

Live life paying careful attention to every detail be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.

That said, I began the world with a visit to a long ago time, in a galaxy far far away. I now know what an ewok is.  Cute little fellows, and very good warriors.  The little story I read had them fighting biker scouts.  Have to admit that I found that the biker scouts were interesting.  Best of all I liked a character called Chewie.  If you are a Star Wars fans you by now realize that this is a brand new world for me.

Golly Gee Mollie, where have I been =^_^=  Goes to show we are never too old to learn about new galaxies, and the worlds that live in or on them.

I learned that there is a forest moon.  How cool is that!  The Ewok is small, furry and lives in the forest.  Sigh every day is so exciting when you can learn about such amazing new characters ..there is such an incrediable amount of talent out there, I can’t wait to make new discoveries.

What about you, have you taken on anything new?  Do you think about new ways to do things that you have being doing in a routine fashion?  One of my upcoming challenges will be to do a character doll for the month of October, Doll Club meeting.

Challenge yourself,  You have so much unused creativity, step outside your comfort zone, live life to the fullest.  Can’t wait to read or hear about your adventures.

Keep the Faith…..
