Salad anyone?

tuna,avocado, egg noodle salad

Scallop noodles – 1 cluster, cook, drain and cool

Solid light tuna in vegetable oil  (99g)   use the oil to mash eggs and avocado

Fresh garlic stem*, thinly sliced (to taste)

Fresh crisp lettuce

Sweet red pepper

Green onion and slices of sweet onion (to your taste)

2 hard-boiled eggs

1 large avocado  scooped and mashed with the eggs

salt pepper to taste

mayonnaise 1 big tablespoon

Tossed together this is a great easy salad – other seasoning can be added as your taste dictates, ie, squeezed lime, ginger, wasabi…. it is your call.

Make this a day to remember, like a salad, how we put things together, the choices we make, all become a creation of our own doing…..

*garlic stems, I have only found at Asian groceries they are not chives, they are shaped like a pipe cleaner, taste is crisp, and can vary from mild to strong in taste. sold in bunches

Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone.  A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months.  Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment.  I am in a “temporary/holding” zone.  It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.

garden geishaI never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.

My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful.  On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona,  has stood me well.  At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.

I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.

PL Day 11PL day 11

Be thankful for who you are today.

You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life.  Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.

Thursday door 6.28.18

 

flowers PA4This door is  more welcoming during the summer months, when there are blossoms blooming to invite you to enjoy the view.

These days I feel like a door.  I stand ready, each day a new “visitor” comes to call, today the stove called.  It blew a gasket, sending smoke and fumes into the air.  The fire alarms chimed in to really add to the excitement.

The dogs and I just looked at one another.  I ran for the stove, turned it off, opened the door, got the fans going, and and and.

New stove will be delivered next week.  Interesting menu if you care to stop on by. My house is the one with the happy weeds, the new weed whacker won’t start.  No wonder the house with the roses is smiling … it knows there is no competition this year.

Don’t worry, I’m as happy as can be.  I got to post a door this Thursday. Yipeee… For more doors, check out Norm 2,0 Thursday doors

thank goodness I am a positive person. I’ve had to deal with a cracked coffee maker, a burnt out toaster, a new weed wacker that is being finicky, and a stove that said I quit.  Good for me. I get all new toys.

 

quiet please

 

flowers PA5We are lucky to have a “Free Library” on our street.  There are a couple in the neighbourhood.  I’ve had a peak once or twice, but haven’t had the time to take advantage of the possibilities.

I have been looking for a book to read, but even though we have a ton of books in the house, it is interesting, that I found the interesting enough when I bought them, way back when, but today, they hold no interest. None.  I pick one up, read the summary and put it back down.  I found one that is a mystery, the detectives are sheep???? what???? when I got that, or where I got it, I have no idea.

Today is anther day, full of promise.  Let’s see what is in “store” for me today.  Life is full of surprises.  Another present?  Another discovery?

Till Next time

That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.

For some reason, this  patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed.  No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye.  I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between  them.

1.30.17 towards Osgoode

The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled.  I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now.  As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the  landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.

hogs back 4.10.18

The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me.  Like the seasons, and the changing skies.  We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE…  Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow.  What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth,  blossomed into forever.

Day 21   PL Calendar

A Thankful Person will Grow as an Individual

When you are able to have a thankful attitude, you will be blessed with good intuition and more enthusiasm, which will continue to move things in a positive direction.
