Whooooo is getting ready for the witching month.

Whooooo has gathered her friends to discuss the possibilities

Me, that’s whoooooo!

The possibilities are endless of course, and I have changed my mind 1000 times at least.  Think about it, isn’t one of the joys in life, anticipation.  When we were children the excitement of special holidays, or time away from routine was always so exciting. Some included gifts, others trips, time for getting together with friends, and just plain old. play time.

As an adult, yes, now I can really say I am an adult…LOL  no questions asked… for sure I am seen by many as something very different from how I see myself.  That is something we call come face to face with.  Life has it is seen by the different generations.

However .. the fall is the time of year where my creative juices really get charged. I know I am not alone, just visit any shop in any town, city or  hollow, and you will see a different palette than the one earlier in the year. Colours are vibrant with jewel tones, the air is crisp, the apples crackle, pumpkins spill out everywhere.

If you haven’t had the small pie pumpkin as a veggie,you are missing a treat.

Today being the 21st. of the month, in PL, we are celebrating Thanksgiving, where we pay special attention, to giving thanks for our blessings of the past weeks, and pray for the continued blessings of the Universe.  Recognizing that we, and we alone are responsisble for our actions.  Love/peace begins in our hearts.

Being happy within ourSelves makes for a much more fulfilling life, don’t just exist, have the passion to BE.  Share a smile!

Service will be at 7pm.

 

Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

oct journal pageHappy September 18th everyone.

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

How are you

 

IMG_0885While out driving the other day. I reflected on that question myself.  We are asked, at least I am, on a fairly regular basis.  I was out driving the back roads, and needed to find my way, or get my bearings.  After a while, the farm land was starting to all look the same. In other words I was getting weary, and needed a change.  Searching the skies I saw a steeple off in the distance, in the countryside here, both in Quebec and Ontario, you can always count on a church steeple to guide you towards “civilization”

It was a peaceful day for me, and certainly the quiet appeal of the church sitting, basking in the sun, added to my “mood”.  The manicured lawn and large paved entrance was a huge contrast to the visions I had been enjoying on the back roads. Another visual of the differences in life.

I am fine, thank you to all who have asked. Life IS different, my personal space has been reconfigured.  To that end, all my past experiences, adventures, and lessons have served me well.  Possibly the enormity of the change has not quiet fully dawned on me, but it is present.  I feel it, and I do intellectually “know” it.  So yes I am fine, but am I REALLY fine,I think it is too soon to tell.  No one can predict the future. And, every day is NEW.

No two friendships are alike, therefore, how I am although influenced at times by my immediate circle of friends, changes, why, because at the core of it all is ME.  And the secret I am sharing, is that Me, myself and I is constantly being kept busy with the help of the Universe, with reminders that I am never alone.  Service yesterday at the church, where the ceremony of appreciation to our Ancestors and those who have helped us become who we are, was performed.  For me was very calming and spiritually refreshing.

For that is a focused prayer of appreciation and thanks to all my family. friends, past and present who make me the person I am today. I like me, and I really and truly do appreciate each and every one of you, for you touch me in ways that transcend mortal definitions.  Love is PEACE.

Wednesday 12th

How many greens can you count….

PL Day 12     Carry out what you believe in

Once you’ve prepared everything to the best of your ability seize any opportunity that comes your way, take action without hesitation.  Express yourself to the fullest.

The world is not only full of colour, but provides us with an abundance of textures, variation on shades and so much more,  Yes there is beauty in a flower, but the subtle shading of the vegetation that often is the back drop for a flower(s), is more lasting, and enduring.  Changing with the season we can never be bored.  We need to see beyond transient beauty.  The icing though good, and often very pretty, would be nothing without the cake. It exists because of the cake.

brazil, que mais?

an early birthday surprise….

Many years ago, I would not have known who Neymar Jr was, nor would I have wanted  a futbol shirt. See how time changes us.  Time and the various experiences we live shape our development.  A stint in  a Spanish country, a visit to the French seaside, life is full of possibilities.  Each step we take outside our comfort zone, makes us stronger.

Tomorrow the 11th. in PL we will be celebrating Ancestors day.  In some countries it is already tomorrow.  For my many friends on the same time-table as myself, wake to a new day, and be thankful for who you are today.

Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.

(PL day 11 on our calendar)

IMG_0912Sending my love and deep appreciation to each and every one of you.  I am grateful that you share part of my world with me.  Oyashikiri

 

Cool Monday

IMG_0875

Good morning everyone, look what I came across the other day.  No, not for me, I brought it to the attention of someone else who was delighted.  Her husband explained, she had one rooms with wall to wall villages, all for the month of December.  Yes, it was kept out all year, there was too much of it to  put away each year only to be taken out again in a few months.  Her happiness at this find was INFECTIOUS.

I happily went on my way towards the area I wanted to check out. But it was a good reminder on how another person’s happiness can have such a positive effect on others. Everyone around got into the “spirit” as she told us about her Christmas room.  Meanwhile for me it was back to the search for items to work into my fright journal. –smiles— just thinking about the black soot pages, splattering of dried blood, and other fiendish fun things I can find.

fright journal 9.9

To each one’s own…. pleasures be… and happily for me, I delight in the décor and fun of Hallow’s eve…. pour me another !  coffin- tender… stale black coffee with a lot of ice….make sure it is cold enough to turn my fingers blue…and I’ll thank you with a wink from my stitched and bleeding eye, if you are quick about it, I will tip you with a 1000 year old egg.

oh dear, oh dear, I think the fresh air is too intoxicating for me

Have a screeching fun day.

ON a serious note..Service is at 10 tomorrow... {Ancestors Day ceremony} by then, we hope to have tamed the brat in me.

Remember spread happiness today and always.

relax

1.4.17_006… so easily muttered, relax, relax…

Relax. I said, relax, sometimes the word itself is like an exLax

ever notice that

you are being told to relax,

when all the while you thought you were relaxed

maybe to some the word relax could be replaced by passed out

no somehow I doubt that

next time I should ask

please be more specific I will say

and just maybe, they will go away

then I will really be relaxed, eh!!
