wanna dance

Bruno Mars

Sometimes I wonder how my brain functions.  It was bedtime.  need to shut down and rest… The above link will take you to what I decided to watch to wind down. Duh, is this a case of “mixed emotions” or a tiny bit of “silly”

Bruno Mars is an “energy” that encourages me to get up and dance, move, keep fit, he makes it all look so effortless, but of course, we all know that such dexterity and co-ordination comes with hard work and practice.

The lazy me, knows that I won’t retain ease of motion if I sit around all day, and the “smart” me knows that right now…  I can use some “slowing down”.. BUT whether I feel like it or not, I need to stay fit.  So…. today, I may not get up and dance, but I will do my steps… walk, one foot in front of the other, and step step step.

How about you?  Are you making time for YOU.  or….. are you letting the world hold you down, and not looking ahead…… come on….  move it!

what to do?

memory candle for Brian

What to do when your day starts with a “bang” (unpleasant one) and then more or less continues on in similar fashion.  During the 10 a.m service today, (Day of Peace) I found myself crying thinking of what happened early before I got to the church.

The dog got his tail chopped off by a closing door.  My precious baby.. yelped,  then I saw the piece of tail on the floor and the trail of blood as he escaped into the house.  Such misery, such helplessness.. I could only react. Meanwhile his sister who is white, was now looking like a red dalmatian and blood was everywhere, on me and on the carpets. Didn’t matter all I wanted to do was pick him up and hold him to me… of course that did wonders for my outfit.  When I finally got to church, I realized that I still had blood on me, and my clothes.  What a sight.

Fortunately the vet made a house call.  I was so relieved.  We are all resting comfortably,  the human will be taking to her bed very early. Oh dear, just remembered have to check on the laundry.  Used cold water. back.. looks like all the stains came out. ahh sigh.

PL Calendar, day 2    Be Forever young and seek new challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.

During all of today’s “activities”, I picked up the memory candle from the Funeral home, isn’t it pretty, there is a small compartment that is sealed under it.  During the service, the candle is lit.  I had never seen these before.  I am comforted that it is home with me now.

Life is what it is.  I need to slow down, and let my journey set the pace for peaceful healing.

PL Precept #11    Always be with God

 

Thank you!

old menu =^_^=

old menu from 1967

Sorry for the quality folks, I was trying to handle it without ripping  or doing damage to it.  This menu was from the Regency Room, I think in St. Catharines, Ontario.  Long gone are those days,  The pies were all .20 cents a slice.

Anyone know what Bruxelloise is/was?

I told myself no way would I have a bedtime snack, but guess what, the call of the avocado toast was too great.

Ahhhh, I’m one satisfied little person.  off to dreamland for me…

Have a great Friday everyone… First day of a new month.

PL Day 1 – Harmony leads to World Peace

change – in spades

Bali Nov. 2015

Yesterday, driving home from a meeting at the funeral home, I was feeling good, a lot had been accomplished, when bump…. a car side swiped me.  Yes in my brand new car. I honked and indicated that the car pull overt, which it did, we drove to a safe place and pulled off away from traffic.

I got out to look at my car, and found that there was no scratch on the metal but there was one on the black trim over wheel.  I was not amused.  Turning I saw the elderly man getting out of the other car.  Dressed as gentlemen do … there was a time when a man would not be caught at any time away from home, without a dress shirt and pants .. the driver of the errant vehicle was slow, his hands a bit shaky.  He had come prepared, he had his wallet out, should he need to give me identification.  What I saw and felt was a man who dreaded what was possibly going to  happen.

He waited for my “reaction”

bali nov 2015

I felt like the empty beach, with the mist that hangs over the water, in the picture you see above this text,  I couldn’t erase the “damage”, turn back the clock, he was already upset, my words were quiet, and I explained that this was a new car, and that my husband had just passed away, I was not happy about the scratch on my new car.  I couldn’t believe I was being so “quiet”..

He did his best to assure me that a bit of shoe polish would hide the scratch.  He sighed philosophically and said, “a new car doesn’t stay new  forever”.  He offered to pay to have it fixed, however, except for asking for his name and phone number, I let it go.  My mind wanted to walk into the mist.

After apologizing again, he explained that he had lost his only set of keys and had been frantically searching for them, and had just found them, his anxiety, and stress, caused him to swerve into my lane.  I said goodbye and left.

It is a new car, and maybe later I will react differently, but somehow.. I don’t think so, life is very fragile, material things, can’t replace feelings. The news around the world these days is unsettling we are all human beings, we all bleed if we are cut, and we all hurt when someone is thoughtless or cruel.

Day 31 in the PL Calendar – Your World will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

May your day be filled with sunshine, and your nights calm and serene.

Saying Hello

a view

I can see you in the distance

I know you are there

everywhere I look

I feel your presence

 tears have abated for now

somehow

like the rain on the window pane

I know the sky will clear

but you my darling

will always remain

in the sun, the sky

the night and stars

 always

you are, today, tomorrow

and forever

Q

 

Another great picture Bonnie, thank you.
