end of a perfect day!

along the Ottawa river – going towards Petawawa, Ontario, CA

When something comes to mind, do it right away, the moment that you notice something is the best time to take care of it. If you react quickly, your life will be more efficient.

Had a wonderful “SPECIAL DAY”. my wonderful friend Eartha spoiled me, doing all the driving. We headed towards the Military base, taking side trips along the way…. all the while keeping the Ottawa river in our sights.

A “time out” day.. perfect in every way. Thank you for all the well wishes, and the birthday greetings.. I feel very blessed.. without you all … life would not be the same… Thank YOU.

chop suey moment

I’m having flash backs and feeling fractured.. Ever get that way? Your parts are all together, at least most of them are.. but somehow, your assembly isn’t sitting well on your frame.

These are pictures taken from my files..Sometimes pictures say more than words. This way the viewer gets to attribute their own “storyline” to what they see.

Back when Chinese food was being introduced to the North American palette, cooks used whatever vegetables that they could find that were fresh and in season. Seldom will you find Chop Suey made the same way from one restaurant to another, never mind one county or geographical area to another.

This moment will pass. they always do. What did I saw the other day, Learning is a lifelong process. =^_^=

Remember that learning is a lifelong process. No matter your age, there is something to be learned and there is always room for improvement. always remember that there is wisdom to be gained from any situation.

Friday 21st.

Here we are, another Friday, today tho’ is not just another Friday it is the 21st. for PL members this is the day we attend church for a special Thanksgiving day service. Reminder this evening 7 pm. Eastern Daylight Time.

Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying, “Thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.

In life, the changes we live don’t always show up, like it did in the above pictures. (of my avatar China) But the happenings around us, can impact us, emotionally, and mentally in ways that do leave us with a profound sense of change, and we are left to struggle and relearn to find our “balance”

I used China as an example today, because, it took months, weeks and days, for me to realize that visually she needed a make-over. Then it took hours and hours of trials and redos.. for me to get this far. I have to give a huge shout out to Truth Wizardly who when I asked for help in the chat group came to my rescue. (Truth is a blogger for various designers in SL Glam affaire and Lelutka being two of them)(see him Flickr)

When we make a change in our lives or have one thrust on us, the adjustments take time, and they require patience. In the case of upgrading my avatar, like buying a new car, everything is new and technology has moved on from what you had previously. there is a learning curve.

If we live with appreciation in our hearts, and accept that some of our “realities” will incur deep emotion and require “letting go” With acceptance, and the desire to move on.. We will grow with the changes in our lives… to become even more of the “person” we hope/strive to be.

Ian’s picture is pure “magic” … thank you Ian!

PL PRECEPT # 1 LIFE IS ART…

Strive to Overcome Obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation of how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.

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.

Scrapbook Centrale

3349 Boul Des Sources
Dollard Des Ormeaux, Quebec H9B 1Z8 Canada

English and French, check out her website …..

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.

Being!Princess Perfect

Freedom to be!

Not a care, dressing for comfort, and because it is what you want to wear.

This is the innocence of youth. happiness is getting dressed so you can get out and play. You put on what appeals to you.. as soon as I saw this picture I was hooked. I knew I would have to share.

Treasure those fleeting inspirations. The best time to seize an opportunity is when you first notice it.

It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our ow way of thinking and our own individual lifestyles. That’s what makes life interesting.

mixed media

LIFE IS ART

Perfect Liberty Precept #1

EVERYTHING EXISTS IN RELATIVITY

perfect Liberty Precept #7

In life we live each moment of our days, doing, thinking, taking action,eating, sleeping, whatever, there is usually an activity involved. the results of our days, some are productive, some less so, but…. the reality is.. for every “action” there is a “reaction”.

When we take a picture, we capture that moment in time. To the photographer, he/she saw and did so much before he/she took that picture. We see only the results .. what was captured in that moment when the picture was taken.

Mixed media is another re-enactment of sorts. the artists starts with an idea or inspiration, then pulls, tears, shreds, paints, pastes, stamps, whatever to accomplish an end result. In my case, instead of a photo, I call it a “doodle”. (dictionary -verb- to scribble absentmindedly etc.)

Will you “doodle” today, or dawdle…. LOL whatever you do, have a grand time doing it. and… SMILE!!

Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.

maudlin

photo Dave Renz (day 68)

Yuppers today I woke up with a maudlin mind. My thoughts travelled down roads, through valleys and dales that well…just brought tears that needed to be expressed. Crying doesn’t mean I’m unhappy, it means I am reliving a series of events that tugged at my heart strings.

I talk to you all about love all the time. Love is forever moments that live on in the energy field that is me, myself and I. Crying is cleansing, to allow a tear drop to fall is to allow the sunshine in on a sunny day.

music,singers,song writers, story tellers, what a beautiful world we live in

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Now I’m off to exercise, walk my many steps, and move. How about you! step, step, step, exercise your brain, your body, your everything. Life is for living.

when privacy eludes us

the rudeness of some humans

There are days when getting back under the covers seems to be the best course of action .. however, there is always someone in the “crowd” that has different ideas.

With the sun making its early morning appearance, comes the moment when the human decides its time to get up. Does that mean we have to do likewise? Guess it does. The promise is for very hot and humid weather today.. meaning. .. an early morning “walk/run”

Use things for what they are meant for. Everything has a purpose. Let’s use things to their fullest potential.

Perfect Liberty 2020.26

The reward is often in the taking of the risk, or stepping out into the day. Wake up and live each moment of your day.

changing season

When the ebb and flow of life, flows easily from one season to another. On the surface, all is calm, while internally each and every molecule of life, is stirring with renewed energy.

a love affair comes full circle – yesterday life was.
Today is a new canvas, a new beginning, the tears of sorrow, slip silently away
as we herald a new day.
A lawn is nature under totalitarian rule – Michael Pollan

We live to die. That is the cold hard fact.

How we live, is our choice.

Maintaining harmony is just as important.
