obstacles

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things The outcome is in your hands.

It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk or running for office.

Shirley MacLaine

Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.

Margaret Thatcher

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

Have you ever..

a new sprout

Of course you have. This morning my “kick to my lazy self” was the familiar, why didn’t I save the pictures of previous works. to my new PC. “Cuz you are lazy, lazy, lazy” said the little voice. Sigh, I am, this is one of my lessons in life, .. the battle between the me that wants to do things “my way” and the me that then has to live with the me that doesn’t do something, BEEEE CUZ! (=^_^= a wee rant.. sorry)

I did motivate myself to go up to my husband’s lair and pack a few more bags to take away to the Goodwill. I am getting there. I am from the generation that doesn’t sit still long, we prefer being active/busy. However my body (as wee piglet pointed out) when off balance and needing rest, wants and needs REST. She may be little but she is feisty!

Work well with everyone regardless of their age or position. The opinion of those who are younger may lead to new solutions, and we can always learn from the accumulated experiences of our elders.

and then 27

Really a work day after time off, and the next day is a week-end again!. Do I remember, the groans when holidays would fall mid week. However every day in PL is a good day. It is just to get that motivation to actually get out of bed, and get going. Once we are on our way, we are immersed and right into living the day. whispers rah rah rah…. keeping it quiet just in case, you haven’t had your coffee yet.

Don’t you just love the Pollyannas in this world. I know deep down inside you agree we are the captains of our ships. You can decide to make it a good day, or not. Truthfully sometimes, I make the decision, for ” Time out”. Taoist philosophy, “wise man know when to stand still”.

Whatever you decide. Make it count.

The 2020 calendars are out, did you get yours yet?

Thursday doors

Good morning, a week or so ago, went on a door gathering expedition. This last one was the door to a small 3 season canteen. On this brisk day in December it seemed to be saying..”Help, I’m being held up, and shut down, it’s lonely”….. Yes when operating it is busy little place on the main street of a small town, with an active community.

Houses, buildings, streets, what makes them interesting is the PEOPLE, a house is just that, until someone comes along and makes it a home.

Each person has their own special qualities. Each of us is born with a unique worldview. Be respectful of others and learn to get along with people of all types.

Thursday doors

Driving by I spied out of the corner of my eye, this quiet lady, sitting prim and proper on a hill. Her land had been farmed, ready for the blanket of snow that would soon cover the sleeping fields.

I couldn’t pass her by, I found a place to turn around, and made my way up the hill. I found her interesting, there were no cobwebs and hanging weeds between her boards, it was as if the fairies had come and swept her clean. Even her faded walls are nicely shaded as if penciled or charcoal -ed, against the winter skies.

For now I’ve dubbed her Lady Finch. Maybe I will get to see her again, when she is sun bathing on a mid-summer day. Anything is possible. =^_^=

Don’t be swayed by the past; It’s what you do from now on that counts. Your failures as well as your successes are now in the past. Always look towards the future and start with a fresh outlook.

dumplings

Dumplings are out of this world, they come in a zillion flavours and in China depending on what part of China, they all have different tastes, flavours and are cooked if not steamed, fried, however they are presented they are wonderful.

Oh you noticed, that a toasted avocado got in there, that is what you can eat when you are out of dumplings. However travelling sister, without access at an airport will have her next favourite, potatoes the burger was on the side. =^_^=

The self is not something ready made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action

Identification ?

A friend captured this beauty, (on camera) but we do not know what it is. Does anyone out there recognize this little critter? She spied this while out camping, past Deep River, Ontario. (Canada)

Don’t blame others. It is easy to place the blame on others and society for the problems you encounter in the life. But you are the one with the power to change the outcome.

My sister and I went to lunch with a good friend along the St. Lawrence yesterday. The fall colours are beginning to appear. In some places they are brilliant in others they are still shy. How luck we are to live in a country where the four seasons are so distinctive and beautiful in what they offer.
