Tuesday

Many of us have had a lot of time alone this past year an a half, not that we are or were lonely, simply life changed. Now there is another change, school is out no more on and off switch there, restaurants have started to reopen, mostly patios are ramped up, I see many restaurants have now got patios where there was only a nod to one before, a few have actually built decks the length of their restaurant (where they could do so) Others have roped off a section of the parking lot.

Everyone is trying to recapture what was lost. (When and even IF they can) Reality check, we can’t go back to relive what was. Even if our physical surroundings change .. Our friends, neighbours, co-workers, ALL have been affected in some way by the adjustments we ALL have had to make over the many months, weeks and days. We ourselves if we look objectively at what our lives have been like and our thoughts over the past months. Many of us … have discovered or rediscovered a part of us (our inner most thoughts) – Once you’ve gone through a door, what was behind that door, it is no longer a mystery.

Perceiving equals doing. Each time you notice something, it is a gift from God. Don’t miss this opportunity to act.

Everyday is a new beginning!

Tell yourself “things happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it you’ll be able to move onto the next step.

When I first saw this picture that Num (NumOttawa on Instagram) posted I wanted to write a love sonnet, a sentiment of caring and adoration, I was so inspired. I didn’t do it, I put the idea aside and .. yup, l lost the moment.

PL Precept #16 All things progress and develop.

PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a turning point

How often have I had an idea in the middle of the night, wake enough to think I should write it (notebook and pen are right there by the bed) I don’t do it, thinking I’ll remember, I don’t.

Yesterday I went for my second covid shot.. I got the appointment in the morning, for 5:10 that afternoon. Booking online you then have to wait for confirmation that your request was accepted and that you are confirmed. There were public announcements bookings were not happening the city was out of vaccines, people couldn’t get through to the call in centres, or if they did they were told sorry, call back. It was a day of waiting and hoping that mine would happen. It did. Whew… so relieved.

But somehow during the day, I lost the TV remote. Don’t ask I have no idea, how, why or where, it is not to be found anywhere, I’ve looked and searched to no avail. At one time, there were two of us looking, my friend who drove me for my shot.. helped turn everything upside down too.. nothing. The two heads are better than one, didn’t work.. sigh.

So guess what, it is time to tell myself “things happen” and yes its darn inconvenient, but accept it I must and move on

Have an astounding Tuesday everyone!

Thank you Num (NumOttawa on Instagram)

Silent Wednesday

Be carful about doing things you really like. do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you’ll lose your balance.

Perfect Liberty 2021.26

A quick note- example – I love to hike/walk in the woods.. for days on end I go out every morning and drink in the world around me. Yesterday the heat/ the miles/ many steps, caught up with me. I lay down just for a second and lost the rest of the day/night. MODERATION.

stay safe – love U

Lime kiln -Monday

Be very careful about doing things you really like. Do everything in moderation, when you overdo, you’ll lose your balance.

Perfect Liberty 2021.26

This is a good one for me to pay attention to. I have a tendency to get carried away if I start doing something that I really like doing. I can get lost in the project/moment, creating an issue or lack of time for something else I “should” be doing.

For instance today I was headed for Jack Pine trail, I wanted to add it to my list of nature trails that I have to too .. and to start a file on it… that I can expand on as the days/months roll by, Driving by Lime Kiln I thought to take a quick look at the cut trees that had been downed the other day. The quick moment turned into a better part of half an hour. There were black birds in the area I was .. I started to focus on getting a good picture of them.. then realized that if I did that, time would be taken from my trip to Jack Pine.. why did I have to watch the time… … I’d been to Costco, and had items in the car that needed to get to my freezer… like duh.. multi tasking has its own set of problems one has to watch for and pay attention to.

Have a good start to the new week everyone!

wood fun

Knowing church was at 10, I made my way to the woodlands earlier.. I got there as the cleaning crew was leaving.. had the place all to myself. Still a little early but I did manage some photos.

Let’s begin today with a smile. Let’s start the day with a positive outlook, looking forward to what we can discover.

morning walk

The day was so promising, sunny, mild, I got to the lake early enough there were only 3 cars in the parking lot. few people its a large outdoor space. There is something about walking into the woods hearing only the call of the birds, and the scurrying of the squirrels and other ground runners. Early enough in the day I could still smell the earth warming as the long reach of the sun made its way down into the ground teasing the moisture out of the soil

I’ve grown accustomed to the early morning visits with nature.. I like to wander along the paths and envision the hidden activities that I know are happening all around. I see a bird in the distance, a butterfly dances by, somewhere above there is the rat-a-tat of a woodpecker.

always I am rewarded with a new find… =^_^=

Live expressing your own unique self in your day to day life. We each are given our own duties and roles in life. Take the time to find what makes you unique, and you will be able to live your life expressing your own individual beauty.

I am strong

I have seen, I have grown, I live on

I am not one, but many, yet alone I would not be the picture of life that I am today.

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

Like these footprints in the snow, what we do each day makes an impression that will last only as long as that moment in time allows. As we move forward in life continue to break new ground.

You can freely express yourself within the rules. Consider rules as a canvas on which to express your specialty artistically.

It is important to say “thank you”. Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether its food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.
