Blue Jay watching over a huge stash of peanuts that someone came and dumped in the area. He wasn’t alone, there was a couple of doves, lots of chippys, a couple of squirrels, a cow bird and blackbirds that flew away as I came closer.
Everyday is a new day.. . PL Precept # 1 Life is Art
Start today with a fresh outlook
Every day there is new growth…
The heat is really hurrying the seasons. The magnolia which is now in full bloom, is also totally wilting and drooping, petals dropping… … the buds came out and …. the heat so intense …. they seemed to just burst out, then as if all the energy was drained out of them, they began in earnest to reach out, exhausted themselves and are now all over the ground.
Many of you are seasoned gardeners, what has your experience been with the magnolia trees, are they all so short (the flowers) lived.?? When the tree was younger, I seem to recall stronger blooms, that would stay around for weeks.??
Think of the timing before you say “but…” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being resepctfuly of others’ opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak.Perfect Liberty 2022.14
It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasmPerfect Liberty 2022.10
The trees, are plentiful, the ground is boggy in places, the roots don’t go down that deep . in the winter, with the cold freeze, the changing temperatures, trees fall over… limbs break, they land wherever .. sometimes I wonder how they end up where they do.. but . they do end up across paths, some are bigger than others, some have lain there for a long time and they are in various stages of returning to the earth.
My frustration with my self.. is that I love to spend time wandering therefore I encounter deliquent limbs branches, stumps etc. that for some reason end up across a path, or parts of the limb are obstructing easy movement in some areas..AND I without thinking bend over and lift/move them out of the way. Or I see that the way something has fallen or rolled down an incline is hindring or fallen on new growth, of say a fern or other ground cover that is seeking to reach up into the new day.
I forget that my left/knee and hip are still recovering from a serious “strain” that occurred in the fall.. and my rib is still healing… my body was very vocal last night, Today no walking the trails. The “wee” ones will have to wait till tomorrow for my visit. =^_^=
Tomorrow is Ancestors’ Day, there will be a ceremony at 10 a.m. in all PL churches across the world, enabling us to express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and those who have touched our lives with their love/guidence.
It is by daily walking through this wonderland that I am learning of all the many species of birds and wildlife that share it with me See all the new growth, I marvel at the progress it makes . I get to see it push its way throught the carpet of leaves and other matter that is decaying, reaching up into the morning light, I am inspired and filled with awe.

Life is briliant, it is wonderful, and when it is filled with love/appreciation it is awesome beyond words
Don’t let circumstances sway your decision. It does not help to overthink things. Sometimes we just need to make up our minds and move forward.Perfect Liberty 2022.6
Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying.. “thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.Perfect Liberty 2014.21
Have you heard the expression… not my monkey, not my zoo -this is what kept going through my head last night, I even wrote out several times in a journal page, something I have not done in a long time. “It is none of my business, let it go…”
Take action without thinking too hard. No matter how hard you try to foresee the future, you really don’t know how things will turn out. Do your best and see how it plays out.Perfect Liberty 2022.4
Today is another day… PL Precept # 1 Life is Art..
My very first actual sighting of an owl sleeping in a tree. I can’t tell you the thrill it was for me. This little darling was used to being photographed.. the experienced photographers knew he was there, and most had already taken his/her picture. “kristoff” from Gatineau, was kind enough to point him out for me .. and show me where to stand so that I could get a clear shot. I knew from previous visits that there was an owl in a tree in that area… I had seen others gathered around getting a picture, but always there were so many I just wandered off to other areas.
Yesterday was cooler, and there were less people around. Ground was still muddy (very) from the rain and the snow of the previous days. Please if you know which owl this is.. can you you leave me his/her identification below. Much appreciated.
This was another of my host birds.. this one was at my feet, we just stood looking at one another. She/he patiently waited for me to move aside. I was the intruder.
I’m including this next picture, because, these critters were everywhere, if they could have pulled on pant legs for attention they would. There are big signs all over, not to feed… I simply moved on.. but they were very persistent.
Can you guess where I’m headed as soon as I finish here…. LOL… have a good day everyone..

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things but you may be imposing on others as well.Perfect Liberty 2022.29
Finding my way through bramble, brush,& fallen trees, was a challenge I gave myself today See the small opening, once the vegetation gets going, this is barely visible. I thought I could follow the animal trails and explore beyond the initial growth. forgetting that the animals using the trails are on all fours and much shorter than my human 5.3″ frame. I had to push aside the branches with thorns and duck under the bigger branches that wouldn’t push aside.. Curiosity drove me forward.
I did come across a small clearing that at one time someone or persons had tried to put up some kind of shelter. the picture on the right, you can see there is a shelf of some kind.. not sure if someone perched on it, or it was used for ??. There was no clear access to this area, not now anyway… so how long ago this area was used and what it was used for, is unknown to me. I spent time rummaging around looking for clues, but if there were any, they eluded me.
When I finally headed out back to the more “civilized” part of the woods, I found I was not where I thought I was, and had wandered off course, I could only get to the main “path/road” by crossing over or through water. and then making my way up a rather steep incline. How About that.. I had wanted to explore, well… hello unexpected…. I tried going one way, following the water’s edge.. looking for a place but I was blocked by really dense branches, shrubs etc. I turned to retrace my steps.. and saw a lone figure coming along the upper road (the one I was trying to get to).. hello I called.. and surprise, the voice that answered was a friend…(who had just texted me, cuz she saw my car in the parking lot)
When there is a need, the Universe “answers” – sometimes two heads are better than 1…. I made it out, and then went on to walk with her for awhile… There is always yin/yang it was a wonderful experience but all the hacking through brush and hiking over rough terrain jarred my ribs again.. – smile you are on camera!!!!!! tsk tsk some people just never learn……would I do it again… yes….. life is G O O D, dragons appear everywhere.
Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.Perfect Liberty 2-22/27
Yesterday a little weasel ran across my path.. never stopped to say hello, just kept on going, what it had in its mouth, I didn’t want to know anyway… they move fast. Usually I see them in the winter when they are wearing their winter coats.. this one yesterday was dark, and darker at the tail, they are sleek, and mean. The other picture Dan had of this little fellow was one of the weasel and his capture. they are not only fast, they have powerful jaws. -(reminder >> never judge a book by its cover)
Use money and things usefully and enthusiastically. Money and things are materials for self expression Use them joyfully with appreciation.Perfect Liberty 2022.25
