When they dry, I bring them in .. the leaves have gone, there only remains the lanterns on their stems.. they make lovely centre pieces, or arrangements that brighten up the seasons when we are indoors more. I was told they hold spiritual pods inside that have gathered their energy from the sun during their growing season. =^_^= Because I love the idea of having the natural elements of the Universe sprinkled throughout my living space, these are “gems” that I enjoy all year long.
Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

Refreshing greetings not only enrich your mind, but also make the other person’s heart feel good. When you say hello, stretch your chest, raise your head and cheer up with a smile.
Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

In PL we learn that it is through living with appreciation for all the blessings we receive in life, positive & or challenging… we will continue to be blessed… the practice of prayer on a daily basis helps us maintain a balance in our lives.
fyi. for all of you who commented on the upside cars in last Thursday’s blog, it was an art installation that is held each year in Quebec City… the 3 cars were put there by artists who filled them with earth and made gardens for the viewers to enjoy. It was one of many displays along selected streets in part of the city.
May your day/week be filled with much happiness and positive productive moments.
Some doors are more inviting than others.. Photographer Ian Mitchell has been out exploring.. he’s found some interesting doors for us.
Mind you Ian, I’m not sure that these doors are what I would call welcoming, but you did find us a red door in Quebec city.
You’re happy, I’m happy. Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me”. Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

I’m off to try and catch a glimpse of the wild turkeys that I’m told like to hang out in a parking lot in the very, very west end. If I’m lucky you will see pictures of them soon. I was told they are there very early, so dear readers.. have a grand day.. enjoy the fall weather ..
“To do” or “not to do” There is only one way. Although we may have many choices in front of us, in the end we must all make a single decision. Once you have made up your mind, move forward without hesitation.

Seems I’m not the only one with a BD this month. Happy Birthday wishes to all other September “babies”! I know some don’t like to celebrate or even acknowledge the birthday, however, for me, I feel it is our day, not a declared holiday by another source, it is OUR day, it is the anniversary of OUR OWN PERSONAL JOURNEY.
In honour of my birthday, today I started the morning with something new. I made mashed potatoes for breakfast. LOL… I can see the eyes rolling .. I’m not a big fan of mashed potatoes in fact I seldom have them. But a friend suggested when I had the oral surgery that I should stock up on soft foods, one of the items suggested was the packaged instant potatoes. Mashed Puree butter and herb potatoes, comes in individual packages. Not bad. Just didn’t want an egg. Why not. I’m a grown up. I can have what I want for breakfast.. smiles.. that what being an adult is all about right.. we can make choices.. whenever and however.. just remember there are always consequences.
Let’s live without compromise – No compromise means that you don’t lie to yourself and you’re honest. when you deal with things without compromise, everything will be more efficient and you will surely see remarkable results.

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

Reminder – do things with makato (sincerity) willingly and joyfully.
Good morning, took many more, but.. this is a sampling, the charm is everywhere. In our walk, we thoroughly enjoyed the parks, what was especially nice was that there were seating areas everywhere along the way for the “explorer” to sit a spell and simply enjoy.
