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!

When the feeling and the words lie under the surface and just won’t percolate to the top..

When your inbox is just too full…

Silent Night

The night was clear – the darkness was inviting – there were few stars in the sky – a stillness lay over the land – she moved with slow deliberate steps, yet her feet barely touched the ground – her movements were almost invisible shadows …the moon’s sliver of silver light highlighted her graceful form as it now picked up speed…. did I imagine her… one minute she was there, and then… … the night was clear. Only a faint scent of a lingering breeze eluded to her having been.

There are days when the you know .. the night hasn’t gone away.. it is waiting in the wings.

till soon

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

Turkey here a turkey there

this footage by Kevin.baldelli.photography

I was delighted yesterday to meet up with Ed Hodgins, where else in the woods of course… smiles… how does that song go, “if you go out to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise”.. lol mine was meeting up with Ed who I had not seen for awhile. he was of course out taking pictures, he had his faithful camera at the ready, and a bag of “goodies” for the birds to entice the feathered beauties.

We, the “birders” who enjoyed the Evening Gros beaks last year, are waiting to see if they will return this year. I certainly hope so.. They were delightful last year. Meanwhile I asked Ed if he had any pictures of wild turkeys, and he did! (see two top pictures). Kevin bless his heart, remembered I was looking for Wild Turkeys and sent me footage from his inventory of pictures.. I get to do my turkey post!

No, I have no idea why I had this interest in the turkeys this year.. they just seemed to catch you fancy, but were always eluding me when I had my camera with me. Does anyone out there know what their vocal call is? They are always on the move like in Kevin’s picture when I see them or eating in some farmer’s field.

What is normal is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.

light and shadows

Being sidelined these past weeks has meant that I have had plenty of time to visit and revisit some of my creative endeavors that I’ve played around with over the last couple of months. In particular it has given me time to work on the Christmas greetings that I have to have ready to send over seas. The new year is fast approaching, and if mail (snail) is to get overseas in time for the holidays, I need to meet the postal deadlines set by our postal system to ensure that mail will arrive on time. Last year there was a huge rush and a lot of delays depending on the country you were mailing to. Check with your local postal authorities for the deadlines this year.

We are all wonderful in our own way. Although results are important, your effort is what is truly precious.

Sometimes an overcast day provides the best natural lighting to evoke a mood or an ambiance that is soothing and calm…..

In the quiet of the moment – now becomes forever

Thursday doors.

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

World Peace does not invite people just by praying… praying for peace is important, but let’s take concrete action. Efforts and sincere actions to create harmony, not only in the home but also in the workplace and community, will lead to world peace.

in the woods

A friend returned to the area, she obviously pulled it out of the area I had felled it in, and put it up against the tree on the other side of the feeding area. Friends are invaluable treasures!

It was my first time out on my own… I was careful, however, what did my day in was that when I got home I decided to do a wash (laundry) and had to do the stairs several times.. That gave my leg its last hurrah, it shoved back… it is now back in an upper brace, to assuage the swelling.. and I will rest and put it up to let it regain the steps it lost yesterday!!!

However the outing itself was “awesome” I loved the solitude and welcome silence of the woods as I entered. I was able to feel the freshness and smell the fallen leaves. This is my favourite time of year. The blue jay with his brilliant blue and white plumage came to the party, and sang his delight at finding the peanuts. They (the birds) didn’t reprimand, they were joyous in their acceptance of fresh seed.

Speaking of food, hmmm its breakfast time… =^_^=

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

Rain is here for the day

Listen to the falling rain
Till soon

elusive

In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..

What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.
