So far we have had a foot of snow and it is only 10:51a.m. it is forecast to snow till around 8 pm this evening. I did manage to get out to where the crows will gather if I put out food. It was shorty after 7 a.m. it was as you can see very overcast, and snowing when I ventured out. It was snowing lightly, as the day progresses the snowfall is heavier.
Start today with a fresh outlook. even though people and situation may look the same, they are constantly changing. Start each day with a fresh mind.

Driving was slow and visibility was awful. Took my time, fortunately I live near main roads, and was able to pretty much follow plows all the way to where I was headed. I did not dilly dally, as soon as they were fed I came back home.. drove into my garage, got out.. shovelled in front of my garage (a car’s length) and my steps leading up to the veranda.. Used the remote to close the garage door, and came inside to the warmth and comfort of my home.. where I plan on staying till tomorrow. 5 minutes after I got in, the contractor came by with the plow to do the first run of my laneway.
Where ever you are today, enjoy the day, make good use of your time. I roasted a turkey leg with baby spuds, that will be my lunch.
Stay safe, stay warm, and be mindful of all that is the world around you.
How we age, our acceptance of the changes to our physical “selves”, our mental awareness of these changes, and how we have catalogued our experiences and assimilated life “lessons”… will always elude our “present” state of mind.
I am doing a project that involves “anatomy” do you know when you research the male anatomy and then the female anatomy the results are very different. We are different, both human .. but very different in our makeup and how we are perceived.
What interested me the most.. what stood out (pardon the pun) was that the male anatomy pictures all showed, except maybe 1 or two, the member in the state of arousal. It was getting late and I had plowed through maybe 3, 4 dozen pictures.. as I told a friend, I thought I was going through a car parts inventory it got so boring.
Reminded me that.. one should never focus on just one issues, or fact.. but to try always to see the full picture, to understand the circumstance one finds oneself in. LOL sorry if my example is a little “wonky” this morning, blame it on all the research*.
A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

Face the speaker, make eye contact and listen carefully. Listening to people is also a form of expression. Listen with Makoto (sincerity)

research sites, are plenty when it comes to the male anatomy who knew!
Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. When we are doing something, especially if its a small or easy task, we tend to get sloppy. Let’s put our whole heart into everything we do, even if its something as simple as pushing a button.

I have no likes or dislikes Even for those who say “I’ll have anything” there are things that I love ” I don’t see many people getting sick without eating what they don’t like, but I often see people getting sick from eating too much of what they like. The same goes for hobbies. It is a human path that doesn’t touch and stay.

PL Precept # 20 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter.
Think of the timing before you say …”but” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being respectful of others’ opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak.
When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you are able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

Key to happiness – Rather than blaming others for thing that don’t go well, such as “work isn’t interesting” or “I’m unhappy” it’s important to reconsider your perspective and method. The key to happiness lies in problems that seem unhappy.
Think “Now is the time” Instead of “it’s no use now”. don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

Have you noticed that late fall, early winter, there is a quiet that falls over the woodlands as it adapts to its nakedness. Without the camouflage of foliage we see the true “bones” of the forest. Driving along the road if we drive slowly and look down between the rows and isles of the growth, we see “paths” and “possibilities” that we don’t get to enjoy in the spring, summer months. Every season has its “reason”
Hello out there, I have a feeder at P23 (Dewberry) that needs food, this is the big feeder usually supplied by Ottawa Field Naturalist Club/Club des naturalistes d’Ottawa. They are experiencing supply shortages and a few of their feeders are therefore without feed.
I know from personal experience that there are a lot of photographers out there and nature lovers who come to P23 often .. to take pictures and enjoy the wildlife that habits in the forest there. I have been feeding there every day (except spring/summer and early fall).. I know that many people bring a small stash of seeds to lure the birds. Now IF we can, is the time to pool our resources.
The OFNC needs help in getting food to the feeders that are not being serviced. I’ve made arrangements for another feeding.. The feeder takes a huge amount, and needs refilling about once a month. Are there volunteers out there.. to help us get this feeder supplied with food for the next 3 months.
The mailing address for OFNC is email@example.com in subject line please put P23 feeder. If you would rather connect with me.. you have my co-ordinates, contact me thru the blog I will be happy to forward your info.

We got an amazing number of birds last year, P23 was the hub for a lot of the Evening Grosbeak activity, let’s continue to be “the” place for visiting birds.
Sarsaparilla Trail, cold and quiet this morning, came across another photographer who was intent on trying to get a Pileated woodpecker that simply was not interested in being distracted.
I was looking for a picture to use for a holiday greeting…. I was so enthralled with my walk through the forest, that his red head will do for the holiday colour. After all, the blessing of the day will be my trip into the woodland, the peace and quiet that I found there.
Someone has shared/his/her talent with everyone, and put a homemade food “hut” out so that the seed will stay dry during our often wet/cold/freezing rain/snow and ice that comes to us over the winter.
May the spirit of the season, bring many hours of joy and happiness to you and your loved ones. Stay warm and dry. Be safe! Blessings of the season!
