a bloom for you

with snow falling, I wanted to share an exotic bloom with you..

Be very careful about doing things you really like. do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you will lose your balance.

Handle things that come your way one by one. Tackle your issues in the order they appear in front of you. You will be able to get things done more efficiently this way.

the gathering

Today I tried the Nikon. They were patiently waiting for me to give them some space so they could dive down to the banquet I’d laid out for them. There is another tree off to the right, there were more on that tree.

Today was a day of “waiting”. If anything getting to know birds and their tolerance for a human wanting to get a picture, is teaching me “patience”

Ok. can you tell if the other bird is facing us, or is that his/her rear?

I was waiting for someone to turn up between these two trees. I managed to push the button in time to get these two.. They aren’t doing anything interesting, but it was an accomplishment for me. It was 7 degrees here this morning. My fingers were not getting, they were numb.

this certainly looks like Mr. Grump

I have a great appreciation for the wildlife photographers who sit for hours to get a good picture. Not only do they have to wait for the bird to come into view, they then work their lenses to capture the bird in action or at least getting a good resemblance. LOL.. I at least can tell this is one of the blue jays.

Face challenging situations with positive determination. When you encounter difficulties, boldly take measures to overcome them. By creatively finding solutions, you will feel the joy in tackling any situation.

note… The crows are not in the same location as the Blue Jays

At Dewberry today I saw so many Evening Grossbeaks, it was a sight to see, the sunlight gleaming against their black and gold feathers. Sadly I didn’t even try to get pictures there. I was too occupied with filling the empty feeders. The Blue Jays were at Mer Bleue.

note… I got my fresh air. 🐱

Cheers on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Changes

With One thought “the world” will change … changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

Perfect Liberty 2021.24

The only constant in life is Change… how often do I say this. How often do I meditate on where I am, where I was, where I think I want to be. With the Chinese New Year looming, it will be in a couple of weeks now. I really have to make time to look at last year .. what if anything I accomplished, and what I think I want to change, or be different in the coming year.

February 12. will begin the new year – white metal Ox.(lunar calendar) it will last until January 30th 2022. diligence, persistence and honesty. In the Chinese’s Culture the Ox is a faithful friend and makes a great contribution to the development of society.. Can we use some of these qualities in our world today.. People born in this year are industrious hold their faith firmly, and are always glad to offer help. The year of the Ox occurs every 12 years.

My personal tradition is to spend the months prior to a new year, reviewing and contemplating on how I have been living and if I am happy in my “circumstances”.. praying for guidance that I will do what is right, and continue to grow as a person, who contributes to life .. as it is lived around me. I cannot change the world, I can only change “myself”.

I am so grateful that I am blessed with the good fortune of friendships that have enriched my life and that I continue to make new friends who share in the joy of life.

Sharing, caring and listening, are important ingredients in our desire for change.

Everyone has a good side. Make effort to see everyone’s good side. You will become more open minded and your ability to see the good in others will increase.

Perfect Liberty 2012.26

Blessings of the day.. I have only love in my heart for you.. I want only that we grow together in a world where the sun shines (goodness) every day in all ways. for EveryONE! Be open to change…

There is great joy in being able to appreciate and dwell in a world of such beautiful wonders.

Stir Fry Friday

we never know just where a road will lead, even when there is a sign
who we will meet and what they will have to say
some mind their own business and really don’t care to interact at all

Free yourself from being overly attached. Overthinking hinders ideas and actions.

Do your best today, have a great day, smile a lot.. and always.. have caring kind thoughts for those around you.

imperfections are part of life – Q

crows, snow and a door

I started the day with the thought that I would go on a door expedition. However that thought was swept away by the constant shifting of the winds and drifting snow/rain. We see a lot of door exteriors, this is the interior view of a lonely door. It doesn’t get used much except to hold left over “this and that” from my creative moments.

This morning the crows dined on freshly baked, chicken hearts, giblets and liver. My babies (whippets) got to have the nutritious gravy with their kibble. During these times of restraints and “forced” isolation, I find that being in and with nature is very calming.

Express your appreciation with enthusiasm. Appreciation is the driving force for progress and development.

PL Principle # 2 I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

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

PL 21 Principles.

I am reminded every day of how blessed I am to have the wonderful friends that I have around me, and how when I meet strangers while in nature, they smile, and always have a sunny greeting to call out. Not only do the birds sing, and call out to each other, but there is children’s laughter, and the joy of people who have come to commune with nature. Everyone stays respectfully distant, and except for the odd person, all wear masks if they are going to be coming by or past you. It’s a new year. and a new way of BEING.

church on the 21st.!

but really? we are on lock down!

We all got the same e-mail last night.. I did late last night.. Read and re read the message, yes, there will be a service this Thursday on the 21st. We know it is last minute, and that most of us are simply unable to attend. Here is where we put into practice what we did the other night, when I held an evening service. If you are unable to attend, please join us at 7 pm EST. while Rev. E. performs the special service. It is called service of Appreciation.

Cast your mind to the church, find your seat, and sit quietly while others gather in their homes to join us. Service will start at 7, begin with your salutation, move on to reading your PL prayer, then sit in quiet reflection while Rev E performs the Appreciation ceremony. spending time with us, in quiet prayer is all we can ask for at this time.. The positive and healing energy of the group will surround you even if you are miles away from the physical church. God is with us everywhere, God is in the air we breathe and in all that we see, feel and do. Be mindful.

But we are here together, and we will support one an other. THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY!

Use any results, good or bad, as a stepping stone. All outcomes, whether positive or negative are important experiences. Let’s use them wisely for our our future progress.

PLEASE, we ask that you call the church prior to any action, should you consider coming physically to the church, we are on Covid-19 stay at home orders. Physical attendance at this time is very restricted.

red poll

isn’t this the most adorable of birds

I have Kevin Baldelli to thank for patiently standing in the cold for hours today to get this picture. He is a gem! I first saw this bird the other day, I was told that she was a hoary red poll by a birder who was at the site when I caught a glimpse of this bird. She was alone, and stood out from the other birds at the feeders. Kevin is very efficient, he got this picture and a few others, this is the one I am using today I just was so pleased when I saw it. He also looked the bird up and after careful perusal of the information determined it was a common red poll. I don’t really care about her name (I don’t even know if she is a she, but I am so taken with her, it doesn’t matter. My many thanks to Kevin for this picture and the others he has taken, which I will share with you later. =^_^=

To see more of Kevin’s work , you can check out his Instagram …

Change your mind, thinking “it will be alright” do the best you can without being overly attached.

I am finding that it is therapeutic to spend time outdoors watching and listening to the birds. How about you? Have you taken up any new interests over the past weeks/months.??

crow/raven

watchful, sharp powerful foresight- change, transformation, prophecy and good luck

I’ve never met a crow/raven that I have not fallen in love with. Today, I was in the right place at the right time, I saw one, and then another, it was kismet. For me they symbolize intelligence, flexibility and destiny.

Ebony feathered wonders. The are very vocal, usually having a lot to say. I saw them in the parking lot of a McDonalds… Yes I was picking up my black iced coffee, no cream, no sugar. (for those of you who know my need for cold coffee when driving) Then at Dewberry Trail, the sky was full of crows, they were in the tree branches .. my first time, in all my visits there to actually see them there.

Throughout history, these birds have been portrayed as spirits and divine messengers. I would like to think, they are letting me know// something good is going to happen! Crows are not afraid of dealing with something new (unknown). Entering into this new year, we can all take a page from their chapter on optimism.

It’s Okay, God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

Have a grand day everyone. The sky has finally started to get brighter.. (still a dull gray, but I can now see a better definition of the trees outside the window). Yes, I am one who likes longer daylight hours. =^_^=

Smile, make every moment count!
