PL Precept #1 Life is Art

Sydney Australia

A beautiful capture by Hillwalker (Darren Su)(Sydney Australia)

Life is about sharing, not able to see the vistas that Darren does in his travels, I enjoy his view of the world he visits and lives in. No two people will view the same sunset or sunrise the same way. It is always fascinating to see the world through the eyes of another.

Be open to new discoveries, as bloggers we are blessed with this opportunity many days in one given day.  I have discovered worlds and pieces of it, in so many ways, by sharing with fellow bloggers and readers.  You all participate in my world.  Thank you!!!

Give thanks and appreciation to all those that come your way today.

sky high – Monday

festival winds bondi beach 9.17

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

look at me – flying so high

I am in the sky

riding the free-flowing breeze

oh… to never touch ground

yikes, if I do, will I be found

go away negative thought

God pilots my path

and in God’s grace/love

I have faith and know

wherever I go

it will be where I am bound

I sit high when driving, we have a truck.  I as struck by the vegetation and rooftops as I travelled how 43, going east.

It was a beautiful day as you can see.  The miles slipped silently by as I rode along taking in the views.  It was a “me” day.  A day to allow my thoughts to come and go, my only objective to watch the road, and take in the beauty around me.

Farmland as far as the eye could see.  Small villages, and towns, expanse of fields waiting for harvest.  Rural Ontario. (250km)  Lots of time to entertain my thoughts.

PL Precept # 15  All is a Mirror    –  I sought tranquility and peaceful surrounding.  The Universe granted my wish.  I enjoyed conversation and friendship along the way, then back in the truck  as I continued on my way………….. the steady hum of the tires and visual delights as Nature provided the beginning colours of her  fall palette.

Just before the final stretch, I stopped for fresh produce and discovered a new fruit.  Ground cherries.  physalis longifolia

Enjoy each new day, give thanks for the opportunities that come your way.  Life is good.

A day spent with and in Nature, alone, in meditation and quiet

is a special day indeed!

Friday smile

lemur from 1994 magazine

Whenever you need a smile, you can always count on someone to pop up and say – Hey!

Hi!  I’m thinking of you…  Makes me smile every time.

Everyone gets busy in their own day-to-day living.  When someone takes the time to drop in and say hello…  appreciate the moment…  this is one way the electronic world has changed over the years..  Where before we waited by the mailbox for word from a friend, now… with the internet, a few clicks and the smile is on its way.

This little guy I’ve been dragging around with me for years, I mean YEARS.  He was on some magazine cover that someone had thrown out.   I rescued him, every so often he pops up,  I find him amongst papers, or stacks of magazines.. we share the familiar (by now) hello… and…. puff…. he’s gone till next time.

We need to tidy up and clean house  in the fall, I prepare for nesting come the days when it is so cold outside.. we know we will be enjoying it from inside.  For all the crafters and collectors out there, check your stash.  Time to stock up.

Blessings to you all.  Share a smile today.  Love with all your heart, what goes out, comes back… Always.

Thursday -mystery

mystery photo 1

Happy Thursday morning all.

I went to take a picture yesterday of a door.  That was my intention, unfortunately, I drove by, missed the laneway, and could not get back.  It was rush hour in Ottawa, and for some reason, where usually traffic flowing west on this road, is usually pretty good at this time of day, yesterday it wasn’t.  Missed opportunity.  I will go back another time.

Last night, looking for something else, look what I found.  No, no way it is a door, but gall darn, could I figure out what it was.   I know it is familiar.  but it just wouldn’t come to me.  Certainly I was intrigued.

This morning with a new day on the horizon, I had a “bingo” moment.

Here is a second picture the elf in my camera took.

How I managed this, I’ll have to ponder on a bit longer.  Does anyone out there, recognized what this is?

Life is full of surprises.  We need only take out our phones sometimes, to discover a whole new world.  For sure we meet new friends  =^_^=   My Chinese name, associates me with the moon, I believe that a “moon spirit” has drifted into my virtual world……

=^_^=  sunshine smiles to everyone today.  May your day be blessed with the happiness and joyful memories that last today, tomorrow and always.

field fresh tomatoes 9.4.17

Field fresh tomato, sliced with a toasted bagel, and 4% cottage cheese.  I just discovered the 4%, in the past I’ve opted for 1%, BUT with hubby needing as much protein and nutrition as I can get into him.  I got the 4%………now I’m  in love.. doubt I will go back to 2 or 1%    Just looking at the picture I want to have my breakfast all over again.

This is a picture taken by my nephew, Darren Su, he is a wonderful photographer, who can always capture a figure or sunset in a way that shows it at its best.  Seeing this picture again, was a reminder to me that in life, we need always be prepared.  Not necessarily to do battle, but to seize new opportunities in a way that will be creative and bring our desired results .. this means… it is important to arm ourselves with stress busters and a healthy lifestyle.

Spend time with a canine friend.  If you have a whippet like we do, they are true couch potatoes in the house…  emulate their techniques of relaxation =^_^=

Remember – PL Precept #18  Each Moment is a Turning Point….

Happy start of a new week… from our home to yours… Blessings & Sunshine hugs.

homemade Gazpacho 9.2017

Good evening everyone…

With a busy day, a stressful afternoon, and a stomach that was being quirky, I just wanted to zone out… crash in my recliner and daydream.  It wasn’t happening, my mind just wouldn’t settle.  So, I called my sister.  She had just made herself a yummy lunch (different time zone) of freshly made Gazpacho with fresh produce and some tasty pasta.

In her part of California, they were experiencing record highs (heat) so she came up with a zesty dish she could enjoy  chilled.  Talking about her recipe and the thought of something similar I was inspired to get up and check out what was in my kitchen.

deck flower 3To my delight when I looked out on the deck I saw that a plant we had been nurturing for the last couple of years had bloomed.  Wow… I had no idea, I found the plant next to a dumpster in the West End, looking very pathetic, didn’t know what it was, but I saw it, and another plant that looked like a vine,  Liked the look of them so brought them home.

They have been watered, and simply tended.  In the spring they go out on the deck and in the fall they come in.  Nothing was expected of them.  The vine grows nice big green leaves, they fall off during the winter, and return in the spring, no more no less.  The one you see above, looked like it was just surviving,  When I saw the bloom it was a real treat.  I put out a “what is this” on Instagram, my cousin in Halifax replied “hibiscus”

Isn’t family wonderful!

PL Principle # 3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

We always have choices, we can dwell on negatives, or we can enjoy the positives, show appreciation  and be rewarded, with more happiness and contentment in our daily lives.
