Cranberry delight

 

IMG_1206I felt like I was walking in my own wonderland.  Given permission to wander and enjoy, I took full advantage and drove down towards the fields of now harvested cranberries.

 

The light drizzle and clouds over head, did nothing to dampen the thrill of the experience.

There was a calm, the ducks, and birds were nesting and peaceful, the waters drifted lazily along, enjoying the pull of the breezes.

I had wanted to visit the Cranberry fields for a very long time.  The other day, I slowed down, and took the winding country lane down to the farm.   Upper Canada Cranberries, Ottawa’s only cranberry grower.  Greely, Ontario.  613-798-6232, or the other number shown, 613-720-6232.

It is of course off season, the harvesting had been down, workers were gone, it was just me and whatever wild life  called the farm home.

I was happy, my spirits were soaring with the high of being alive and able to be there at that moment in time. For me, it was a blessings, pure  intoxicating love for all that IS.

The owner was busy when I was driving out,  I hope he knows how content I was.  He lives and works in this environment all year.  WOW…  He has a small store front, for days he is open.  You can get fresh cranberries, and pure cranberry juice, no sugar.  That my dears is a find.  If you are in the area, please look the place up.

IMG_1302This was a very special blessing, I followed through on my desire to visit the farm, there was no distraction.  My reward was the intense feelings of being ONE with the environment I was in.

I wish this for each and every one of you. Have a joy filled day… now and always.

Thank you Oshieoya-sama for teaching me to love, to see God within me  and everywhere around.

*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)

I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind.  I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find.  Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza.  Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza

With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.

Greetings on Sunday

 

fright drucillaMay the day shine brightly for you.  Sunday and we are not having a service this morning, because of the service last evening. What does one do on a Sunday morning, when there is no service.  I to Drucilla’s displeasure, decided to play with my paint and other supplies to start on a  makeover for her.  I have told her that this is therapeutic for both of us, but her silence tells me, …. it is all in my head.

Tomorrow begins another month.  October.  The leaves have started to change, when driving the back roads yesterday, I saw more sights of reds peaking through the evergreens.  Actually not only the various shades of red, but the yellow orange hue were also taking over the fresh greens of the summer.  The camera buffs who have been slumbering through the sweltering summer, will be polishing off their lenses to take full advantage of the fall display that will soon be in full bloom.  I confess, I love, LOVE the autumn season, here in Canada where we get four different seasons, the fall months tantalize and delight me.

With that in mind I will be on the watch this morning, for “something” to catch my “eye” while I am out driving along the river, into rural Ontario. Some time, when you are inclined to do so, you must tell me how you mange to drive and “catch” that perfect moment, when there is other traffic on the road… =^_^=

PL Calendar day 30

Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it to the next time.

If I could make this lesson, flash with neon lights, I would do so,  I think the mice are back, or trying to come back in  As you know, it took a long time to rid this house of the little “devils”…. So! mon ami, it looks like we will again, take on the capturing of mice.

I have spent my evenings with Poirot (Agatha Christie} audio books, so delightful!

faith and coping

sim entendo, yes I understand

Good morning, Bom dia dear friends.  How often do we say these words, yet when we give it more thought, we realize that maybe we didn’t really “get it” or understand it, the way the person was explaining it to us.  Because a lot of my creative expressions that are visual, are abstract, when I am done I have a feeling of satisfaction  I can sit back and see all the many possibilities of what, if anything, had been going through my conscious mind, while I “played”

The other day, I had so much pent-up unproductive energy that I simply exploded, verbal garbage and anger past and present erupted.  Such is life, when we least expect it, poof the angry dragon appears.  Fortunately I am blessed with a happy dragon, and she is more powerful than her counterpart.  She knows the angry dragon doesn’t have the staying power. WE, my dragons and I are happy munchkins.

In PL, we know that Each Moment is a Turning Point.    PL Precept 18

Don’t let a negative moment in the day, ruin your day, accept it and move on.

Wednesday again

fright group pic 9 26

bom dia, este e um costume?  no no, the dolls are coming home for the October festivities. Are they ready, they have been jabbering all night about their experiences and the stories they want to tell.  The acts of kindness they have been able to participate in, now, with October just days away, they have made their way home to celebrate the month of the year, reserved for them.

They are aware that they are not like the rest, and stand out in a crowd.  But each one is unique and has his/her own story … Here they are not judged by their “look” LOL or lack of, they simply can enjoy letting down their hair, not replacing an eye, wearing what they want, and and and, the list goes on.  Who knows maybe one will have a story to tell that I can share with you. rubs hands with glee and gives a crackling chuckle.. “time will tell dearies”

Day 26  PL Calendar     Maintain a positive attitude and wisdom will come to you

Worrying will prevent you from having good ideas.  Stay positive and you will find a solution.

Reasons

 

IMG_0745Bom dia..

Sim yes, my inspiration today is the bark of this tree.  There is something about textures that appeals to me, I paint using textures, I create a lot of “art” dimensional, I have never analyzed why, I just like it.  After a painting dries, I will close my eyes and gently run my fingers over the canvas to discover its hidden delights.

After years of trying to take in all of what I am seeing, I know that I can see a lot of things at one time, some details will stay with me, some won’t.  So much like I did here, where I focused my lens on one area of the tree, I do that with life. I don’t ignore the rest of the picture, but when I see something that is of interest, then I delight in discovering what it is that is communicating with me.

If you are a photographer, you know  we can walk by a landscape a zillion times, then one day, the lighting is just right, shades dance across our vista, and wow, we “see” an amazing sight.  Just like walking out your back or front door, is different every time you walk into the “outside”.  hmmm did she mean to say it that way.. yes I did =^_^=

remember this picture..

IMG_0748Same day, same place, same time of day give or take, but a different tree. Each had its very own appeal to me.  “that day”  I suspect if I went back today, I couldn’t find them again.  Thus the harping on… live each day to your fullest, today is today, and tomorrow will be a new beginning.

After going on about “observation” I will share with you an incident this morning. I washed my hair (I know exciting stuff) as I was towelling my hair I looked down and wondered what was sticking to my night “dress”.  Hello I found the “bleeding” thing has a pocket. No, I didn’t know, and again no, it isn’t new. So you can see what I wear to sleep and around the house, does not get the attention  I give to other areas in my life.  Oh dear! I am human after all.  sigh.

With that, I will wish you all good cheer, make the most of today, I am off to enjoy mine. Thanks for sharing this brief interlude with me.

The other day, this pond was quiet, still.

Yesterday it was populated with a gaggle of ducks happily enjoying the sunshine of an early fall day.

same location,   except in this picture I am on the other side of the little pond.

The only constant in life is change.   Life goes on.  Eliza’s post that I reposted to you just before writing this, caught my “mood” perfectly’.

As one life ends, another begins  ——— one door closes, another opens.  This is what life is all about. new beginnings.
