– Just listen….

17th.

Snow, blowing snow, high winds, visibility is not good, roads are not all cleared, the cold temperatures means that under the fresh snow is the possibility of black ice, there are hidden dangers out there.

The path to achievement is “to start with what you can do” try to find out what you an do towards challenges in your own situation. This will pave the way for achievement.

Till soon

happiness is

Watching the visitors arrive and share the meal in community. Once the feed is out, I sit away from the eating areas, and quietly watch them come in to partake of the good. The Grosbeaks arrive with a lot of community spirit, they call out greetings to one another, and appear to actually visit with one another as they taste and select their morsels … I use a mixture that includes added protein.

The birds are very observant, I am always surprised at how they know when and where the fresh suet is put. I don’t see them watching, yet unerringly they will go to the freshly buttered tree bark/crevice and nibble at it. from the chickadees to the blue jays they all will fly over for a taste they are good at doing it “casually”…. the doves who prefer to eat off the floor/ground, have been seen to fly up to check the butter out.

For those interested, there is another product out like the butter, that Ritchie’s* have, it is called “Icing” it will be milder in the next week or so… I did try it, but will give it a better test when the weather warms up… The birds showed their interest, we’ll see, the butter/icings don’t spread well in the colder temperatures. Ritchie’s also has the seed that deters squirrels.

Yup… we’ve had snow.. it is not staying around, “don’t kid yourself” said the wee voice… you’ve already had your first bad freezing rain drive down the icy snow covered dirt road. So… now what… Big Smile, we can build a snowman, start thinking of a rink, and yes, maybe even give some thought on how to decorate and cheer up the room(s) for the December holidays.

If you are a dog owner/walker you get to see the snow by moonlight, when the dogs need their evening “let out”… I’ve noticed how the snow has a silver almost transparent shine as it gently and silently floats and dances down from the above. There is a light that goes on over the back door when the dogs bounce out into the night, it shines over the deck… it is really very pretty.. and sooooo quiet.

At 5:30 a.m. when I start my day, I get to enjoy the early morning quiet before the activity starts up .. today being Saturday the roads I need to take to get to the conservation area will be less busy. I’m excited, I can leave earlier and spent time with the crows while they have their breakfast. It is a pleasure I allow myself…. they are so grateful. They arrive in such numbers… but still I am starting to be able to tell some of them apart, the “leaders” the noisy ones, then there are the more reserved, even have a clown or two.. their personalities are such fun to observe… especially now that they are getting used to me again. Even have a silly seagull who thinks he is part of the “morning crowd” he sticks out like a sore thumb… give credit to the crows.. they let him/her join in.

Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

day of gratitude

This was the tree limbs back in early 2021, below is what is left.

Below is how the feeding area looks now… I’ve since changed a couple of the feeders but you can see the difference and the setting. (a beautiful wild turkey, I miss them.. they have gone further into the woods for the winter… )

For your info…. Mer Bleue has closed the board walk, it has been blocked off… so has the boardwalk at P6 off Moodie.. At Mer Bleue we are now hosting Evening Grosbeaks, and joy of happiness… they are at P23 too. (Dewberry)…. today was a real winner, I got both the red bellied woodpeckers and the grosbeaks while I was there filling the feeders.. bonus the crackle dropped in.

To everyone celebrating Thanksgiving today… Enjoy!

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Other people can sense how you are feeling … so, be cheerful.

It the 8th Susan

Mer Bleue Conservation Bog

The number 8 – symbolism and spiritual.. the symbol of infinite perfection. In numerology 8 is associated with power and strength. The power and strength associated with # 8 is said to be feminine energy, it gives you the strength to archive life’s goals.

Start by thinking “let’s do it!” Once you decide to do something and put your whole heart into it, things will start moving forward.

Perfect Liberty 2022.8

When the road ahead looks long and uncertain, taking the first step will always be an opportunity to new discoveries, even though you have walked that path before, each day is a new experience, and a new beginning.

Susan kicks into a new day! a # 8 day!

Tomorrow Sunday 9th. service at 10: a.m. and on 11th.(Tuesday) Ancestors’ day service will be 10:a.m.

Sunday

I spied through the trees the most brilliant colours, the sun was filtering through the canopy of green, lighting up and creating a halo over the vivid shades of autumn that had begun to emerge against the emerald backdrop that surrounded them. Such moments make me aware how wonderous the world around me can be.

Yesterday I had remarked how aging isn’t for the faint of heart.. yet I had experienced the above moment that morning, I had spent wonderful hours in the company of good friends, heard about a wedding that my friend had officiated at… (such happiness and joy .. young love is so tender, passionate and innocent) watched the birds arrive for the buffet of seed, suet and nuts that awaited them…. talked with fellow nature hikers along the woodland trail, and been blessed with the love and patience of my two whippets. Just to name a few of my heart to heart moments I had.. Life is super fantastically good. Why was I going on about aging isn’t for the faint of heart. ???? Could it be I was letting negativity creep in because….. hmmm yes.. why…. I was allowing negativity to creep in because physically I have slowed down, not necessarily by choice, but because my body simply does not want to rush around like it used to…

Oh joy! was I having a “poor me” moment. We all have them, and nothing is ever 100% sunshine and blue skies, but.. these moments pass. The clouds lift, the rain passes, and we move on. Thank you Universe for friends. Where would we be without them. Show appreciation today and always for the blessings in our lives. It is ok to give in from time to time and wallow or complain, it is human.. BUT know that it is only a passing feeling/thought/moment… and move on.

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Use money and things usefully and enthusiastically. Money and things are materials for self expression. Use them joyfully with appreciation.

Hello Fall

Yesterday as I drove down the road to the entrance to Mer Bleue I slowed to look over the valley beyond the trees that border the road and saw … fall colours… the whole line of trees along the far side of the valley were crimson and golds… Yikes… it is still September … I didn’t have the Nikon with me and the cell would have limited range for me to capture that colour. BUT it was there.!!! Good thing fall is my favourite season.. I L O V E IT….

Be cheerful and friendly with those around you. Other people can sense how you are feeling … So, be cheerful.

Whoa… what a “ride” the last 24 hours plus have been. However, the fog has lifted. I’m feeling human again. Sometimes we have no choice but to let the body deal with the intrusion in its own way. Certainly if it was lacking in rest, it got a lot of that in. Thank goodness for over the counter meds, i.e. Gravol and cold/flu tablets.

As you saw, I did manage to get in to cover a festival that is happening “inworld” however, I was so brain fogged, that I wrote it up on this blog instead of the virtual blog… oh well. C’est la vie… it was done.. It is one of those times when the little voice whispers.. “get over it” “move on”.

How are you doing? I finally got around to reading my e-mails and messages, thank YOU to each and everyone of you who reached out.. I appreciated your words and support.

Today I am going to try and see if I can find the turkeys and get a picture. The other day the little brats were lazing about in the P 21 parking lot.. it would have been a beautiful picture, but as soon as my car came to a stop at the end of the lot… they got off their various perches and sauntered off into the tall grasses and out of sight. No amount of sweet talk influenced them. In fact my arrival threw the raven who was visiting with them into a real temper tantrum and he began to verbally hurl his thoughts about my arrival at me. What a voice, loud and guttural, there was no missing his message or his annoyance.

Your smile can create an instant connection. A warm smile brightens everyone around you and has the power to break down barriers between people.

My smile has no effect on crows, ravens, or turkeys. just saying!
