Saskatoon service berry

The gift. Shortly after nine last night, there was a light tap o my back door. The dogs didn’t make a huge fuss.. still, I was hesitant. The top picture is of my Saskatoon serviceberry tree that I took, wht, maybe a couple of weeks ago. It seems the two young lads from across the street, came over with a ladder and harvested what they could from the tree. It was a gift from them to me. How lovely is that! My rascally dogs, had to have known, they alert me to anyone, who sets foot on the property.

The berries for those of you who have not tasted this delightful fruit, is unique, sweet looks like a blueberry but it has more of an apple/asian pear almond like nuttiness. the scientific anme is Amelanchier ainifolia I love the berries and had planted this one as soon as we bought here.(Ontario)

Check out all the nutrients, its profile is similar to the content of blueberries.

Needless to say, I was delighted, what a lovely gesture, and a kindness that added to my already wonderful day!

Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at east and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.

Thursday doors.

a memory, a treasure, once upon a time

Always think that “everything will work out” When you allow yourself to be pessimistic, your thought and actions become sluggish. Approach everything optimistically without hesitating.

A HOME is a special place. A door welcomes you home. This picture tells a story, each one of you will discover it in your own way. The first time I walked through a door of such a “home”.. I was struck with the simplicity of the building, and overwhelmed by the “life” it contained.

I had peaked into the window.. and I saw right through to the yard out back. Simplicity, sturdy, provided the necessity, protection from the elements, and those who shared the insides, appreciated and enjoyed the comfort it provided. Gratitude for the essentials in life.

A heart felt thank you, to the wonderful friend who thought to send me this photo when it was found. She sent me a few.. which I will share with you in time.. this one was the gem that my eyes found and stayed on when the package arrived.

migraine moments

clarity is blanketed

the body’s message loud and clear, STOP, don’t move, lie down,close your eyes, focus on your breathing. Let the swirling debris of sediment settle fill the cracks, and allow the mind time to regroup and fall where it may.

let definition settle where it may

STOP trying to introduce brilliant, vibrant and chaotic energy into the reality of NOW. There is a world of discovery at your feet, stop looking into the distance, there is a whole world to be discovered and rediscovered.

With all the negativity of late in the press, media and being spoken and conversed about…. my brain needed a change of venue.

I have a very special friend, who in introducing me to the America he knows, sent me a video that stirred my emotions and left me wanting more. I searched YouTube and found this video by Ann M. Wolf. I would like to share it with you. please feel free to pass on having a look, if it is not of interest to you.

https://youtu.be/9-Lf9WTiawQ This is a video on the flag folding ceremony of the flag of the United States of America. It was done as a dedication to Honor Guards and the fallen from across America.

Church service today is at 10 a.m. and I believe that Reverend Eugene is going to try to send out a video of same.

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Good Morning everyone, when you look out your window today, what do you see?

It is so easy to look and not see.. Think about it, you leave the house very day, sometimes to walk, sometimes you will drive, .. when you leave, are you looking at your surroundings, or thinking about where you are going.

I took out an old folding chair that had been tucked away out of sight and out of mind. When I opened it, I saw that the metal was rusted, and certainly was not appealing….my first thought was to give it away, it was still very functional, in fact it had been new when it was put out of sight.

On going out the side door to the laneway where I would take it to the curb (garbage day) or to my car to cart away, my eyes fell on an empty corner of the house. Where .. for years.. I have thought of having something there to sit on.. not for the view, it faces the garage and the wall of the house next door… I had just thought I’d like to sit there.. just never got around to doing anything.

I plunked the chair down, sat on it.. and looked around.. hmmm my wind wheel on the fence was spinnning with the breeze.. it was pretty. Then I noticed the vine I had planted when my new fence went in.. and and and. Yes suddenly I had a whole new “resting place”.. and it was cooler there in the shade of the house… the trees from my backyard were blocking any view of the neighbours in the back. Wow.. my little chair gave me a whole new “window” view…

A window view, is a whole new way of seeing a piece of life that you have yet to discover. Are you open to new discoveries.?..

Wednesday – tenderness

when no words are needed
the rest of the world disappears
tenderness is felt, not spoken

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Jimi Hendrix

Love is the condition in which another person’s happiness is essential to your own.

Robert Heinlein

Everything exists in relativity

PL Precept #7

a wee world

a wee one

It is much cooler in the wee world, where one can travel, play, explore and enjoy any temperature that pleases. along the mushroom trail is where you can find Q today, She is having a ME day.

Some days the greatest playground is the one that you can discover while never leaving home.

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

moments

a moment in the sun

I close my eyes tight

the moment will not disappear

physically there is no disappearing

my body is heavy

the sun is hot

I feel caught in the moment

moment in the sun

my restless mind is stopped

I feel the shade across my face

yet I am in the warm embrace

of a moment that won’t go away.

the heat, the moment

transports me to another time and place

moments ARE forever

they can never be relived.

good or bad

in that moment

you live, the past, present

and yes, the future

the shade will shift

with each breath I take

for my sake

I want the moment

to pass, and let me wake

another day, for

another moment awaits.

Q

PL Precept #18 Each moment is a turning point.

yada yada bla bla bla

my attempt this evening at tea biscuits

raw white honey? butter? crab meat with garlic mayo? creamy almond butter? First time to use my made in Italy pan I found at the thrift the other day. You can’t see it, but the outer pan is lazy baby blue.

Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.
