howling time

fright nite b

LOL the howling month approaches.  Love end of September, and all of October.  Witches, goblins, spiders and bright vivid shades of oranges, blood reds and black. It is time to dig out the dies, stencils and paints. Yahoooo where is the glue.

OK so not everyone is enthusiastic and carries on like I do.  But a roll of big bright ribbon with pumpkins and black cats… wow what a blast. here they are ready to be part of my stash

I had so much fun, just finding the right shadows to go with the ribbons.

Having fun is what life is all about.  Happiness is… living each moment to the fullest.  At one time I would have cropped out or photo shopped out shadows etc.  Now I find that they are part of the moment, so I leave them in.

canvas torn

I found a picture of some torn canvas that I had happily ripped into shreds for a project.  I think I still have some, so will go in search of what is left.  I feel a new project coming on.. inspiration is rounding the corner.  Time to rock and roll!!!!

Have a good day my friends.

sadness

fesrival winds bondi beach

look at the sad face

soon he’ll be soaring above the clouds

but at this moment, he looks so sad..

for a fleeting moment

a memory pierced my heart

a wink, a blink of an eye

a treasured moment

flashes before unsuspecting eyes

the colour of blue,

a bluejay’s call

transports your heart

to another port of call

the sad dog will soon fly

or could it be, he has just returned

from playing in the clouds

an emotion waits in the wings

tomorrow is another day

precious puppy will you stay

or will the winds

lift and carry you away

I will pray

God will keep you safe

and take the sadness away

A beautiful capture by Hillwalker (Darren Su)(Sydney Australia)

Life is about sharing, not able to see the vistas that Darren does in his travels, I enjoy his view of the world he visits and lives in. No two people will view the same sunset or sunrise the same way. It is always fascinating to see the world through the eyes of another.

Be open to new discoveries, as bloggers we are blessed with this opportunity many days in one given day.  I have discovered worlds and pieces of it, in so many ways, by sharing with fellow bloggers and readers.  You all participate in my world.  Thank you!!!

Give thanks and appreciation to all those that come your way today.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

look at me – flying so high

I am in the sky

riding the free-flowing breeze

oh… to never touch ground

yikes, if I do, will I be found

go away negative thought

God pilots my path

and in God’s grace/love

I have faith and know

wherever I go

it will be where I am bound

Thursday -mystery

mystery photo 1

Happy Thursday morning all.

I went to take a picture yesterday of a door.  That was my intention, unfortunately, I drove by, missed the laneway, and could not get back.  It was rush hour in Ottawa, and for some reason, where usually traffic flowing west on this road, is usually pretty good at this time of day, yesterday it wasn’t.  Missed opportunity.  I will go back another time.

Last night, looking for something else, look what I found.  No, no way it is a door, but gall darn, could I figure out what it was.   I know it is familiar.  but it just wouldn’t come to me.  Certainly I was intrigued.

This morning with a new day on the horizon, I had a “bingo” moment.

Here is a second picture the elf in my camera took.

How I managed this, I’ll have to ponder on a bit longer.  Does anyone out there, recognized what this is?

Life is full of surprises.  We need only take out our phones sometimes, to discover a whole new world.  For sure we meet new friends  =^_^=   My Chinese name, associates me with the moon, I believe that a “moon spirit” has drifted into my virtual world……

=^_^=  sunshine smiles to everyone today.  May your day be blessed with the happiness and joyful memories that last today, tomorrow and always.

homemade Gazpacho 9.2017

Good evening everyone…

With a busy day, a stressful afternoon, and a stomach that was being quirky, I just wanted to zone out… crash in my recliner and daydream.  It wasn’t happening, my mind just wouldn’t settle.  So, I called my sister.  She had just made herself a yummy lunch (different time zone) of freshly made Gazpacho with fresh produce and some tasty pasta.

In her part of California, they were experiencing record highs (heat) so she came up with a zesty dish she could enjoy  chilled.  Talking about her recipe and the thought of something similar I was inspired to get up and check out what was in my kitchen.

deck flower 3To my delight when I looked out on the deck I saw that a plant we had been nurturing for the last couple of years had bloomed.  Wow… I had no idea, I found the plant next to a dumpster in the West End, looking very pathetic, didn’t know what it was, but I saw it, and another plant that looked like a vine,  Liked the look of them so brought them home.

They have been watered, and simply tended.  In the spring they go out on the deck and in the fall they come in.  Nothing was expected of them.  The vine grows nice big green leaves, they fall off during the winter, and return in the spring, no more no less.  The one you see above, looked like it was just surviving,  When I saw the bloom it was a real treat.  I put out a “what is this” on Instagram, my cousin in Halifax replied “hibiscus”

Isn’t family wonderful!

PL Principle # 3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

We always have choices, we can dwell on negatives, or we can enjoy the positives, show appreciation  and be rewarded, with more happiness and contentment in our daily lives.

Chop Suey, 9.1.17

Movati 8.31.17Magical

Futuristic, a playground for my “Me” time.  I’ve gone back to the gym.  My favourite  place, my get away Movati Athletic … It was time, I’ve been back a couple of days now, and it is wonderful.  Staff have changed, the older carpet has been replaced, still the magic of the place is intact.

Having started with them back in the late 90’s when they opened, it was where I wanted to be.  I went up to the co-ed floor today, a must for me, it means walking up the flight of stairs, there is an elevator, but the whole idea is for me to start rebuilding my whole over-all “body”.

My fit bit was very happy, I finally met and exceeded my goal that I had set for myself.  =^_^=  sparkles went off when I looked at my figures.. Yay!!!!

On my way home from errands, I went into on of my “haunts” and woweeeee   I found a Madame Alexander Doll (2014)  She was not in the best shape, her hair was a total mess, and all frizzy.  Her body was scuffed and marked, but…. never having had one to check out up close and personal, I brought her home.  She has been bathed and washed, and her hair cleaned, but it will be awhile before I get all the knots and frizz under control, IF it can be done.

Took items to the church for the upcoming garage sale, remember everyone, mark your calendars, September 16, Saturday  from 8 am – 2 pm.  1010 Hunt Club, Ottawa,On. Church of Perfect Liberty

Icing on the cake… I got home to find a big happy balloon tied to a floral dish garden.  Thoughtful friends in Australia, reached across the globe, with their love and healing prayers.  Muah darlings, I will write soon.

My husband and I have been overwhelmed with the love and friendship that has been coming our way.  This is a journey that is truly blessed in many many ways.  We our humbled by the love that has transcended the distance of geography and time.  Thank you for letting us know, we are not alone.
