Yesterday was a day trip to Montreal to pick up supplies had ordered. Yes I could have had it shipped, but then I would have missed a wonderful long visit with a cherished friend I had not visited with these past months, due to “circumstances” Plus in Montreal at the shop itself, I got to see the owner and friend, who has been working very hard to keep us (her clients and friends) all in the loop of her activities in the stores, She just never stopped, bringing in the supplies we need and want. Even taping little workshops and showing us all the goodies that were there for us to ponder on.
She looked out for us, and now we are ensuring that she gets our support with the reopening of her shop .. still in a limited phase.. BUT people, Scrapbook Centrale is open, 7 days a week. check with Natalie for hours.. and appointments are still best. The doorbell kept ringing the whole time we were there. Her shop is a goldmine of paper art supplies that we can find no where else within miles.. Not under one roof.

In the same plaza there is a pasta restaurant that you might want to try, if you like fresh pasta, homemade there, the pasta and their sauces. it is an unassuming plaza restaurant. We almost passed it by when we first saw it, now we drive anywhere near, and that is our choice place to eat. To the right of the Jean Coutu (pharmacy)
Every day is special, but when you get to spend time with a friend, it makes for an extra special day. I was one tired fortune cookie when I got home. my little fortune read.. Time for sleep.
Today, is another day… I welcome whatever comes my way. Have a grand day everyone… I send you all the warmest and brightest wishes -filled with love and colourful butterflies of hope.
Good Morning everyone, how are you this fine sunny morning? Cards are made for the church, they are used to raise $ for the church and available at a tea room in the downtown tourist area, and I believe in a small art gallery bistro. (I know members know this, but we have new readers, =^_^= fyi… This is the first new batch in a while. )
A big thank you to all of you who have commented on the Thursday door post, I hope that I haven’t missed responding to someone. You were all very receptive to my wander in the forest too. I’m so lucky to have you in my life, your comments and little notes are very appreciated. I feel so blessed, I truly do. All because you share a little time with me when you can, it always makes me smile.
Offer your services instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
I wish I had found this one, but alas, it came to me by way of a dear friend who know of my “love” of doors and such. To all my fellow writers out there, doesn’t this just grab at your “imagination” tug at a bygone feeling that hasn’t quite disappeared from your box of “shadows”
There is something so tangible so totally “earthy” in natural product.. in this picture the wood. I can even imagine the smell of the wood in the heat of summer, and feel the cool hardness in winter. What a “wow” moment it had to have been for the photographer who captured this frame.. my thanks to the “gods” to have kept it safe all these years and to MC for sending it to me so I could share it with you all today.
Don’t hold anything back; give it your all. Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy. Then, things will develop in a new direction.

Your willingness to learn will make you shine even brighter. as long as you are motivated to learn more, you will continue to progress in life.
I’m usually easy going, I do have an opinion, when asked, I have always done my best to be honest with my reply, if I disagree, I tend to soften my stand, unless it is something that really is important.
Today I was asked about whether or not our church should open for Thanksgiving service on the 21st. Contrary to what was said by someone who does not come to the church at all, I feel it should be open for those who would like to attend, observing of course, social distancing, and the wearing of a face mask. Because our members are scattered all across Canada, the actual numbers who can or would physically attend has always been low in number.
Those of us who find comfort in being in the church, some have been with the church since it was built. (the new one).. It is our home, our sanctuary . PL has always been unique in how it offers personal guidance responding to problems of our every day lives.
It is through consultations given by PL ministers, the personal guidance tailored to the individual character and situation that makes PL such a bonding experience.
That the question even needed to be asked.. (.. WOW..) Needless to say, I disagreed with the statement that we stay closed, … and I spoke out. These past weeks have made me realize, that too often, doors are closed, and the support that should be available is withdrawn.
Ministers are front line care givers. Not only the physical body needs to be addressed, now more then ever, we need to feed, heal and nurture our spirits.
Think carefully dear friends.. There is a lot of “stuff” happening out there. Don’t let go of your dreams, and your hard won friendships, and relationships. I had a long conversation yesterday with someone who is a very special friend to me. She married my ex-husband (who is currently battling a nasty illness) I heard and listened to her… “version/life” with a man I had known so many years ago.
Life is very precious. The relationships we make at any stage of our lives, is and are, always part of us .. in some way shape or another.
Everyone has an opinion, and everyone is entitled to express and feel their thoughts and to live their dreams.
But… we do not have the right, to force our thoughts and wishes on others. Or to use our talents and means to create negativity that will cause hurt and unrest, that leads to pain, distrust and emptiness in the lives of others.
God/Universe is divine, and is for all of us. We are blessed to live in a time where we can hear almost instantly of situations happening “worlds” away. During the first and second world wars, how many families were torn apart, living day to day, not knowing where a loved one was, or what was even happening miles away.
We trusted in our faith, our beliefs, and we prayed.
Loving one another is a gift we all have been given us. Love is a feeling emotion that we have all lived. If you’ve lost it. PLEASE look for it.. Love, respect and honoring life.. is the only way we will find World Peace.
As a diabetic I have learned to never take for granted that what works today, will work tomorrow. We, like the Universe are always changing. Recently, you all know that due to my meds. I had a few days/weeks of oops and wow, darn, and golly.
Changes were made, and the waves took on a more realistic ebb and flow. However, it is never that simple. All the other pieces of “me” then have to adjust to the new ripples in what can be a very calm environment. One drug was changed, to be replaced by two. Sounds simple enough, and it will be once the body adjust. Meanwhile..we practice patience and relearn to stand still while what needs to happen .. happens.
It is in these times, that we give thanks, for the blessings we have had, and the love and the friendships that we have had enrich our lives over the seasons.
Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about> Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

Can we disappear, yes from view maybe, but from ourselves.. no. never.
Today is another day in our lives. For some, you are still enjoying a long week-end. for others it is back to a work week. Whatever, where ever you are. May you be blessed with the Universal love that surrounds us all.
Is there a sound to grief. When a loved one dies.. leaves our world leaving us to adjust to continuing on the journey on our own. No one told me of “grief attacks”or the immediate excruciating pain that can be triggered by a “memory”
I was not told to expect exhaustion and disruption, I was told that early grieving is perhaps the hardest work you will ever do.
Without your former companion, you no longer have a “mirror” to reflect back to you who you are and what you want in life. Now only you can furnish the answers by getting to know yourself.
-Dorothy Edgerton, ( learningto live alone)
We experience so many emotions after a loved one passes,when we think surely life is leveling … we are hit with an ongoing echo.. of loss, pain, and a fresh waves of grief.
Grieving requires an enormous energy, but pretending that you are not grieving requires even more.
It is important to say “Thank you” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether it i’s food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.
