With the blistering heat and the high humidity, I scanned through back files to find a picture that was more welcoming to my wilting enthusiasm for another summer day.
Good morning everyone, how are you all doing this July 2. In the States I guess you are winding down or up for the big celebrations coming your way in a few days. Here In Canada we are recovering from the sweltering heat wave that lasted for all of the Canada Day celebrations. Last night I was outside when I felt the change in the air, the build up of clouds, and the whipping of branches as the non descriptive breeze turned into a very expressive energy that was very interesting to see.
I stood stock still, wanting to take in this explosion of dynamic vitality that surrounded me. I could smell the moisture that was building, I knew that it would only be seconds and it would start to pour. Lightening flashed, thunder rolled, and then, only after seeing the light flash across the sky, did I move. Just as I closed the door, I heard the drumming on the windows.. the rain had arrived.
Thinking it is coming.. makes me feel a whole lot better. =^_^=
A start to a new work week, continuing your summer vacation, whatever your plans, stay cool, don’t overdo, and most importantly, be happy.
PL day 2 2018 Calendar
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.
an owl or a beetle
in the end it was neither,
instead the rusted tin man emerge
and I heaved a sigh of relief
with the decision made,
I could go on with my day
the sun is high
a heat wave is on its way
it is not good-bye
cuz somewhere in your day
I will pop in and
click or hoot
Have a wonderful start to a sunny happy long week-end if you are in Canada, if in another part of the world, enjoy the moments from sunrise, to sunset and the twinkling winking beyond… Hooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooo loves you..-^+^- I do!
Pl Precept #10 Love Yourself and Others
We 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
PL day 25 (calendar)
There is no reason to hold back
If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well. Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest
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.
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”.
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

Happy Wednesday everyone….
PL Precept # 11 Always be with God
PL Precept # 18 Each Moment is a Turning Point.
The pictures tell the story. If you have never experienced an air bag hitting you full on, then I suggest you try hard not to experience. It hurts. Not only did it leave me disoriented, I will have the sharp ache for the next while as a reminder, that I was very blessed to have been able to get out on my own, and walk to the ambulance.
The first responders were amazing. I can’t say enough about their kindness, and the care they took to ensure I was looked after. Always ensuring I felt safe and as comfortable as I could be. They even saw to my getting home to my husband, who was at home unable to do anything but anxiously await news.
I wish that I could personally call all my friends who have been wondering what has happened, but with the current situation of the setting up of the home care for “end of Life” it has been very busy, with people coming and going. Both husband and myself exhausted come end of day.
Tomorrow the palliative care doctor is going to make her first house call. =^_^=
Everyone is kind, caring and compassionate. For this we are grateful ..and appreciate each and every thoughtful gesture that has been directed our way.
I dream, I walk, I talk
snap, crackle, pop
the mind is active taking off in all directions
time, to astral travel and make corrections
pop, crackle snap,
oh dear, earth to outer space
time to chat
I need a face to face
PL Precept # 2 To live is o Express One’s Self
Greetings everyone… A bright sunny day shines before us. I started a pen and ink last night, but of course, since I do mixed media, I of course played with different mediums.
Life is much like when we begin a painting. We start out with an idea, and as we progress with our idea, we find that we want to either add or subtract from our possibilities. The advantage of course of a visual on canvas, is that we can stand back and review what we are doing. If it is really unsettling, and we don’t like it, we can either paint over it, or throw it out.
Not so in life. that is why we encourage the practice discussed in today’s calendar lesson.
PL Calendar day 7 Don’t strain, don’t rush and don’t be greedy
When you are doing something, you may rush things to get good results quickly. Instead, relax and enjoy the process.
Experiment, have fun, be playful. Enjoy today, it will never be back in the same way.
