I have a soft spot for rocks. There is something about a rock that seems to be so attractive and mysterious at the same time. I have never come across a rock that I have not enjoyed meeting. They come in all shapes and sizes, for sure some are more valuable than others.. depending on their composition… For me.. they are story tellers. Each one has its very own unique story line. This group with the water as a backdrop appealed to me, I studied it for some time. There was a seating area near by…
I dared not sit .. I wanted to badly, but I was not dressed for the brisk freshness of the early morning. It will be my “destination” on another day. the above rocks are just off to the left of this wonderful chair. I picture myself there on one of our famous “indian summer” days lazily allowing the day to wash over me.
Treat today as if it your first time around. Just because you succeeded in the past ti doesn’t guarantee that things will go as smoothly this time around. Every day, each moment, there is a new challenge to face.

I will get to see the rocks in a different light, I will be curious to see if the same images appear. Enjoy the coming week… Sleep sweet dreams this evening, and if it is morning when you read this.. have a stunning day!

Yesterday was a day trip to Montreal to pick up supplies had ordered. Yes I could have had it shipped, but then I would have missed a wonderful long visit with a cherished friend I had not visited with these past months, due to “circumstances” Plus in Montreal at the shop itself, I got to see the owner and friend, who has been working very hard to keep us (her clients and friends) all in the loop of her activities in the stores, She just never stopped, bringing in the supplies we need and want. Even taping little workshops and showing us all the goodies that were there for us to ponder on.
She looked out for us, and now we are ensuring that she gets our support with the reopening of her shop .. still in a limited phase.. BUT people, Scrapbook Centrale is open, 7 days a week. check with Natalie for hours.. and appointments are still best. The doorbell kept ringing the whole time we were there. Her shop is a goldmine of paper art supplies that we can find no where else within miles.. Not under one roof.

In the same plaza there is a pasta restaurant that you might want to try, if you like fresh pasta, homemade there, the pasta and their sauces. it is an unassuming plaza restaurant. We almost passed it by when we first saw it, now we drive anywhere near, and that is our choice place to eat. To the right of the Jean Coutu (pharmacy)
Every day is special, but when you get to spend time with a friend, it makes for an extra special day. I was one tired fortune cookie when I got home. my little fortune read.. Time for sleep.
Today, is another day… I welcome whatever comes my way. Have a grand day everyone… I send you all the warmest and brightest wishes -filled with love and colourful butterflies of hope.
The story teller in me, found a tree stump one day in a small forest setting nestled off a well trod trail. Not this one, but one similar. I was so taken with the setting that a whole story emerged about a wee family of forest folk who lived nearby and used the stump as their outlook. They would come out during the day, hike up the base of it, then stroll the “high grounds” enjoying the view of their little dens and glens.
I didn’t have the time this day to stop and really have a proper look around. Could this be where the wee creatures who live within the ferns and wild flowers, sit out on warm days.. to catch the rays of the sun, and visit with passers by. And what wee ones would they be?
The whole area was full of life, birds, crickets, butterflies, ants, mice, chipmunks, the activity was alive with sounds … all blended in to form a natural melody that harmonized and weaved into a calming ambiance. It is a world of wonder like no other.
It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the point of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.
I started out for one place, was in the wrong lane, ended up in a totally different direction, and smack dab to the entrance (parking lot) for the Larose Forest.
Was I dressed for a hike through the forest trails, no. Being the trouper I am, I decided to hike down one of the trails to get some pictures. Hot, was it hot… yes, but walking along under the canopy of the trees, there was a breeze.
My day was planned out for me by a higher being. I would not have started out to visit the Larose Forest on a day when temperatures were going to give us a scorching heat, with a high humidity factor thrown in. But I end the day with gratitude in my heart. I had a lovely day, it was a productive day, the myriads of greens, and earthy tones, was a palette that not only pleased the eye, but soothed a weary “soul”
Live in the moment. Whether you are walking, having a conversation, or having a good time, it is important to be fully engaged. Remember to live in the “now”
