Female Evening Grosbeak

Good Morning meet our queen of the woodlands theses days, Our female Evening Grosbeak that has been at the feeders these pasts weeks. These photos were taken by photographer “Sasha” for now if you want contact information, please text or contact me. Sasha is another faithful “bird photographer” who patiently waits for the birds to “pose” for him. The top two really show her precious little face and her expressions.

Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.

Grieving

There is no expiring date on grief….grieving is something that happens and we have no control of how it will affect us or for how long we will live with the emptiness and sense of loss.

Its a door that just never closes… a pain that seeps into every nook and cranny of your being. Just when you think you’ve moved on, when you feel the sun on your face, or a chirping bird sits on your shoulder, yes there is that moment of awe and pleasure, but… it passes… then the shadow slips in, and you feel the burden of the pain, the emptiness of loss.

“Time heals” you hear it time and time again.. yet as the years go by, when you least expect it… a sliver of the cold grief wraps around your heart once again. There is nothing to be done… it will pass. It does, but let me tell you, from the moment the icicle begins to drips its glistening tear, you are engulfed in the hopeless feeling of loss. The shattered pieces of your heart lie like broken shard with edges that are still too sharp to even begin to pick up.

You can’t go back .. you can’t retreat, you can only accept and live through the moment. The more you seek solitude, the more it eludes you. Love that endures, love that wraps its tentacles into forever, is beautiful, but it has a cost. How many moments were squandered, lost to foolish pride/ego. The seasons will change. and yes, you will get by, you will live another day… But oh… how crippling the grief is when it comes to call.

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

This and that.

I have been a couple of years trying to find out the name of the bird(s) that I would see driving down the dead end road to one of the woodland areas I go to. Finally … Dan Cadieux, (Wildlife photographer) who you’ve met on this site gave me the name of the bird. I was at the site where he had just seen one, and was patiently waiting for it to come back, it had come and scared off the smaller birds. He did finally get a picture later that morning, I hope to share it with you soon. This was just down from where I would usually see them “hanging out”… when I looked the bird up.. YES .. I recognized it right away. Patience ..!

Use money and things usefully and enthusiastically. Money and things are materials for self expression. Use them joyfully with appreciation.

heart- ache-break

Gosh, golly darn…. last Friday I attended a benefit for a long time friend. We were predominantly from the music world, singers, performers, djs, club owners, etc. I heard a lot of music… Friday was mostly blues, ok, it was 98% blues. Tonight I was listening to country, so it was a mix of Etta James, Gene Watson, Tana Tucker, Mo Pitney, Merle Haggard, etc that filled my week-end.

Gosh there are a lot of ways to love. meet. partner, relate, have your heart broken, torn up, ignored, OH, and betrayed, and the other one was unrequited love. That’s a lot of emotion. A lot of lonely nights, and tear stained pillows.

Golly darn, I’ve known it all, I listened and wept. Music is so powerful when it reaches in and grabs your attention. It was actually wonderful to relive some of the “storylines” I’ve lived, even if it cracked my veneer =^_^=…. (Tanya Tucker is singing – What do I do with me, without you……)(without you, what do I do with me…)

Interesting that so many songs that speak to us… mirror what we have lived. We relate to the pain, or the anticipation, rush of that new beginning… and all the chapters that follow.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you… Let’s live with gratitude towards everyone and everything all day today.

The pictures were taken after the big snow storm of the other day, we had almost 20 ” fall in one day. Our amazing winter crews worked all during the storm, plowing and clearing the streets/roads and parking lots. Canada might have some whopping storms, but we are prepared, we deal with them our city especially (Ottawa) gets top marks for the effectiveness of the planning committees in all areas of the city, and companies that focus on keeping our roads and city streets open.

Winter is a fact of life. When I was out filling the feeders in the woods, I was happy to see that those who could were out with their snowshoes and skis embracing the new snowfall.

Have a good day everyone find time to share a smile… enjoy your day!

snow day

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.

really! believe!

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.

change

Being Thursday I realized it was Thursday Doors, this year I thought to maybe explore a door that grabbed my attention and discover why it did. Doors are needed to enter and leave a building but for me they also add character to the site/location. This door was off a main street of a small tourist town, I was taken by the owner’s use of natural woods to use in the window box in front of the big picture window. Decorative it allows light in, but gives privacy to the occupants inside. The door is an old wooden door with decorative trim, blending in with the other décor used on the façade… simplicity at its best.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Every day we evolve, every day we face new opportunities, every day we get to make a decision on how we spend our time. What we want to do to accomplish this moment in time…is our decision… make it worthwhile.

for example — I ask myself why I only spend 5, 10 minutes with the crows, when I am on my own time table, they are giving me pleasure, why do I rush away.? Silly thought, random moment.. but there you have it.. caw caw caw….

and that is fact!

long shadows =^_^=

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.

waiting

Waiting for the day to get warmer, for the sun to shine on his/her patch of grass… I drive by each day and wave. I wonder if by now they recognize my car… It is a long distance love affaire.

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.

Have a great start to a new week.
