wild fires

Excessive heat, days of it… We have had wild fires all over the place. Close enough that there have been weather warnings for days now. Yesterday the air was so polluted that Ottawa made the # 1 city for the worst air pollution in a world survey. It was not easy breathing, especially if prone to allergies, or other health problems that affected breathing and lungs. the air quality warning is still in place. Please be careful if you need to go out..

Today’s calendar.

Give importance to listening, looking, thinking, doing and speaking. Look and listen carefully befor emaking a judgement. Assumptions and hasty conclusions can lead to misunderstanding.

Be flexible to change. A flexible way of thinking and responding is one of the keys to getting along with others.

One never knows.. what we will find when we walk through an area.. simply observing.

Thursday Doors

Somewhere in Portugal, I saw this little house and was enchanted. I was inspired to write a little “verse” .. the Universe didn’t agree with my sentiment, the whole blog didn’t save, it simply disappeared. After many failed attempts to retrieve it… I gave up… however, I am still going to show you this little building, isn’t it a charmer?

For more doors, visit Dan’s No facilities site. ttps://nofacilities.com/2023/05/25/memorial-mashup/

No I won’t try to redo the verse… suffice to say, tomorrow will be another day. Meanwhile, enjoy all the wonderful doors that will be available from Dan’s site.

Always have presence of mind. If you overexert yourself, you will get easily swayed by emotion. Always put the best Makoto with presence of mind.

a Quebec moment

When you reach the edge of NOW. The Province of Quebec has many such moments, it is only when you drive through the province beyond the built up areas, when you park, get out and explore. You can find a wonderland of simplicity that can transport the viewer to another time. An example of Nature at her best. In this photo, he* shares a timeless moment. . (*Dave Renz)

I know many a writer who will find inspiration in this photo. It certainly stirred my imagination..

Top of the morning to you Update on the post of the other day, where I showed the garbage strewn all over a public area.. (if you need a reminder this was the post with the litter strewn all over.. https://dymoonblog.com/2023/05/09/crazy-antics/ ) the above pictures show you the scene I found when I returned yesterday. The area had been cleaned up.. the birds could be heard happily singing … the sun shone bright… it was a happy moment. Don’t know who took action, I posted and sent the link to the mayor and a dozen or so councillors along with a few media links.. Whatever, whoever, the Universe worked its magic…The place is once again a serene and beautiful welcoming environment. Oyashikiri.

“Respect the existence of each other.” The world consists of people with different circumstances and different lifestyles. Respect and understand each other.

Keeper is doing much better. She is showing interest in life and the world around her. She even came to bed last night and slept with Velcro and I. I was thrilled. I got my booster shot yesterday, so I was glad for an early night.

If you are still not sure if the mosquitoes are out… They are! so are the black flies. The birds who feed on insects must be in heaven. The woods are teeming with the whirring and buzzing sound of greedy hungry flesh eaters. Ours locally are ugly and savage biters.

Long sleeves, light colours, stay protected, especially if your sensitive to their venom/sting. It will be shorter season, they must know it, and are out there making up for lost time. Still.. weather is good, skies are bright.. . enjoy the outdoors… dress accordingly if you go into the woodlands, be prepared.

Have an age free life. It is not a number its about energy – balance – and – Joy.

Black billed cuckoo

I was searching for the the Northern Flicker, it was persistent with its calls, It wouldn’t let up, the Blue jays, Chickadees even the red winged blackbirds were having something to say, after all, finally a morning of sunshine and no rain. A white throated sparrow joined in along with a Snow goose.. I was wandering, listening and searching through the tree tops for the flicker when another voice joined the cacophy of sound. my reader told me it was a red tailed hawk, this had me really searching the trees. AND then I saw that in all the singing there was a black billed cuckoo joining us.

The purple finch, the house sparrows, evening grosbeaks, yes.. I had a lot of company, but the black billed cuckoo, that was totally new to me.. I began my search in earnest. Alas.. except for a flash of movement and a receding tail end…. (without my Nikon or binoculars) I was doomed to listening. I’m off again this morning with the binoculars this time… to see if it is still there.

I spent over an hour at one site, clearing dead branches and preparing the area for next fall. I needed to get some clearing in .. the new growth once it starts will be strong …. the rain has kept this season a little behind. My Magnolia I saw yesterday … is not enjoying this start to the season. I saw few buds, I hope it pulls through.

If you are wondering, I use a sound recorder, The Cornell lab, Merlin .. I have the ap on my cell phone. It has helped me a lot.. it is very educational.

Make happiness with willingness. People who like to make an effort can enjoy anything. those who spare no effort for anything and anyone know the joy of making art. make an effort with willingness.

observation. I spent over an hour clearing dead branches, fallen logs, etc in a public area, a nature trail, yet I can look at a messy counter in my kitchen and not do dishes till I’m good and ready. when I got home I even got real comfy and lay outside in a new deck chair watching the buds slowly drink in what was left of the afternoon sunshine. A lazy ME moment. Keeper joined me (female whippet)…. the mood and moment carried on into the evening. I call it turning off. Do you do this from time to time? Its healthy for us!

Northern Flicker has been dropping in now and then.. There is something about this woodpecker that makes it adorable. but then I’m a woodpecker “fan”… however, I now know from its calls yesterday… it can be very vocal.

bird images today were from the internet

Ice and thunder

Good Morning, Bom dia….. Spring in the city after a wicked ice storm that has left many parts of the city without power. I said a silent prayer last night, having been without power during the last mega storm we had not that long ago…. I knew the silence and anxiety that goes with being left without power while the storm rages on into the night. So many of us no longer have land lines.. only our cell phones.. a Cell phone without power (not able to be charged)…Morning prayers today… count your blessings if you have power and send up positive vibes for all who are in need of support …

Try putting yourself in the other person’s shoes. Put aside your own convenience for a moment and think about what would make the other person happy or what would best serve their needs.

Let’s see today is Thursday, let me find door(s) that will lead to some sunshine… or set a different tone.

What will lie ahead today, I don’t know… I’m heading out to see what.. IF .. there was..has been damage done at the feeders out in the conservation areas I have been servicing. Enjoy whatever comes your way.. this is a special week and today I believe for those who follow the tradition is the day before Good Friday and it is Passover… yes? Welcome the day whatever you are up to!!!
