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.

Bearbrook, trails off

At first I was disappointed, my first stop was where the big hill is for tobogganing. (winter activity).. when I explored the possibilities along the trails close to the hill, I found them more suitable to “bikers”.. not the first time I’ve considered the idea of a trail bike, the kind with the big tires. ….. don’t worry the thought came, and went.. =^_^=

some sections today were very steep, I needed to craft a walking stick to help me balance when I started the upward climb.
found a carpet of dandelions – the bees love them

The sun stayed out for me .. it was a beautiful day, got my exercise, now I get to sit back and just relax.

If I can exercise every day, so can you !!

Happiness

You’re happy, I’m happy. have the mindset of “good for you, good for me” Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

Perfect Liberty 2021.7

Happiness is something that is subjective. My Mother who would have been 100 this past May 1, did a lot of volunteering, and was very involved in working with and for the sake of others. She would sit nights making blankets, baby sets, and whatever else was needed for the “causes” she was committed to. There was always knitting needles or a crochet hook in hands .. She was when I think back seldom idle. She was constantly looking for material(s) that she could put aside for one project or another. She had three children to feed and raise, My Father having passed away when I was only 10, my sisters were much younger, maybe 6 and the youngest 2.5… it wasn’t easy, but she did what she had to keep the family together.

Happiness is fleeting at best, when it comes from an outside source. Happiness isn’t what someone else can give you, it is how you live and appreciate YOUR blessings.

I visited a nursery yesterday, I needed a few pavers for the backyard, it is something I’ve neglected doing over the years since my husband passed away, many “to do” chores/tasks simply just disappeared from “view”. A nursery was once one of my happy places, I would comb the nurseries for miles around for just the right plant. Today when I walk outside and see my “young charges” they are no longer young, some are old and ailing, over grown and a few I noted the other day, have serious health issues. They need serious pruning and … sigh… some will just stand like sculptures .. they will no longer produce life..

When I’m out in the woodlands, I see so many fallen branches, and remains of trees that have lived their cycle, and are now returning to the earth. Currently these once stately trees are surrounded by new life, fresh minty greens, soft pale pastel and delicate buds are bursting forth from the damp ground that is swollen with the moisture from the winter blanket of snow. Every season has its purpose. Every moment of the day/night there are new beginnings.

Lose your attachments to money and things. Money and things don’t have value unless you actually use them. don’t be stingy nor overly attached to your resources and utilize them to their fullest potential.

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.

Doors in the woods

Don’t think “I can’t” from the start. Begin by taking the first step, then you’ll be able to see what comes next and a path will open.

lots of log walking, and wet muddy bog

Today being Thursday, fellow door lovers can see more doors by visiting Dan’s No facilities site, for todays door offerings https://nofacilities.com/2021/05/06/march-april-leftover-doors/

The boardwalk above, was the one at Old Quarry Trail, if you have not been on that trail, it hooks up with the Trans Canada trail, which I discovered when I took a turn to the right instead of to the left. ( gave me many extra Km, to walk to get back on track to find my way back to the parking lot off Eagleson)

Also note.. the trails I’ve been on, the two yesterday were very VERY wet, muddy, and the boardwalks were slippery and in some places in need of repair, be careful, and wear your gum boots or good hiking boots!

my reward he visited with me while I was on the boardwalk! Yes this is on the same trail where I met the porcupine.
no zoom, he was that close to me.
just wanna hug

I like it!

Be a person who can say “I like it” Find what moves you the most and express your appreciation.

Lost in time

Welcome to my secret world – a place where time stand still

no two people who wander down the well walked paths, will see or feel the same things…

One can search and search for what is often, right before us

stand still, look around, a single baby shoot, breaking through the ground

is life at its finest. That is life awakening to a new season, a new cycle of beginnings

each day is a brand new canvas – be the artist in you, allow your inner self to shine

explore every dimension of your self. for you are a wonderful part of this world we live in.

poetry in water

If only the music had been playing, these two gave me a wonderful performance, they showed off their graceful maneuvers with their synchronized ballet, it was such fun to watch them enjoying themselves. I wished there had been more of an audience.. alas it was me, myself and I…

See how clear the water is in this last picture, then scroll back up to the one above, the murky water is due to the geese dive bombing the bottom and stirring up the mud when they are searching for food. They stick their little faces right down into the mucky bottom. They focus, and are very intent on getting sustenance. I’m sure these are the same two that had a chin wag with me the other day.

With one thought, “the world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

Petrie Island .1.

this is where I wanted to be

There is nothing as enjoyable as a quiet walk along the water’s edge. Early morning before the hustle and bustle of the day begins in earnest.

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

Feel joy in doing things for others. We all live helping one another in our daily lives. Let’s find joy in helping others first.
