The gift. Shortly after nine last night, there was a light tap o my back door. The dogs didn’t make a huge fuss.. still, I was hesitant. The top picture is of my Saskatoon serviceberry tree that I took, wht, maybe a couple of weeks ago. It seems the two young lads from across the street, came over with a ladder and harvested what they could from the tree. It was a gift from them to me. How lovely is that! My rascally dogs, had to have known, they alert me to anyone, who sets foot on the property.
The berries for those of you who have not tasted this delightful fruit, is unique, sweet looks like a blueberry but it has more of an apple/asian pear almond like nuttiness. the scientific anme is Amelanchier ainifolia I love the berries and had planted this one as soon as we bought here.(Ontario)
Check out all the nutrients, its profile is similar to the content of blueberries.
Needless to say, I was delighted, what a lovely gesture, and a kindness that added to my already wonderful day!

I missed Canada Day because I was “under the weather” putting it mildly. Could it have been different, yes and no. In PL we believe things happen for a reason. I had a long day to reflect on how I got myself into such a state. The love and caring of friends, helped me to get through the “moment”… We don’t think we are being careless… “because, we always do something, or have “….
A wise Yoda ..”Change is constant, and change we must. We must be open to the observations and loving concern of others. “We” don’t always know best. ” One doesn’t always see the forest for the trees” ” Ok Yoda may not have said things in the same way. But you get my drift.
I have made a conscious decision, to be more aware, and to make changes.
Always think that “everything will work out” When you allow yourself to be pessimistic, your thought and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

A HOME is a special place. A door welcomes you home. This picture tells a story, each one of you will discover it in your own way. The first time I walked through a door of such a “home”.. I was struck with the simplicity of the building, and overwhelmed by the “life” it contained.
I had peaked into the window.. and I saw right through to the yard out back. Simplicity, sturdy, provided the necessity, protection from the elements, and those who shared the insides, appreciated and enjoyed the comfort it provided. Gratitude for the essentials in life.
A heart felt thank you, to the wonderful friend who thought to send me this photo when it was found. She sent me a few.. which I will share with you in time.. this one was the gem that my eyes found and stayed on when the package arrived.
the body’s message loud and clear, STOP, don’t move, lie down,close your eyes, focus on your breathing. Let the swirling debris of sediment settle fill the cracks, and allow the mind time to regroup and fall where it may.
STOP trying to introduce brilliant, vibrant and chaotic energy into the reality of NOW. There is a world of discovery at your feet, stop looking into the distance, there is a whole world to be discovered and rediscovered.
With all the negativity of late in the press, media and being spoken and conversed about…. my brain needed a change of venue.
I have a very special friend, who in introducing me to the America he knows, sent me a video that stirred my emotions and left me wanting more. I searched YouTube and found this video by Ann M. Wolf. I would like to share it with you. please feel free to pass on having a look, if it is not of interest to you.
https://youtu.be/9-Lf9WTiawQ This is a video on the flag folding ceremony of the flag of the United States of America. It was done as a dedication to Honor Guards and the fallen from across America.
Church service today is at 10 a.m. and I believe that Reverend Eugene is going to try to send out a video of same.
There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.
Where are the words. A lot of green. Blue open sky. Potential danger lurking in the vegetation. Crystal clear spring water. Overwhelming intake of visual woodland, rock,calcium deposits on dried moss, dense brush and over growth, poison ivy, snakes, and wild life that watches, waits, a sudden cloud, drops of rain, too much input on a mind that needed to zone.
I may have to work on today’s lesson.
Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you,

Good Morning everyone, when you look out your window today, what do you see?
It is so easy to look and not see.. Think about it, you leave the house very day, sometimes to walk, sometimes you will drive, .. when you leave, are you looking at your surroundings, or thinking about where you are going.
I took out an old folding chair that had been tucked away out of sight and out of mind. When I opened it, I saw that the metal was rusted, and certainly was not appealing….my first thought was to give it away, it was still very functional, in fact it had been new when it was put out of sight.
On going out the side door to the laneway where I would take it to the curb (garbage day) or to my car to cart away, my eyes fell on an empty corner of the house. Where .. for years.. I have thought of having something there to sit on.. not for the view, it faces the garage and the wall of the house next door… I had just thought I’d like to sit there.. just never got around to doing anything.
I plunked the chair down, sat on it.. and looked around.. hmmm my wind wheel on the fence was spinnning with the breeze.. it was pretty. Then I noticed the vine I had planted when my new fence went in.. and and and. Yes suddenly I had a whole new “resting place”.. and it was cooler there in the shade of the house… the trees from my backyard were blocking any view of the neighbours in the back. Wow.. my little chair gave me a whole new “window” view…
A window view, is a whole new way of seeing a piece of life that you have yet to discover. Are you open to new discoveries.?..
