Bom dia, Good start to the day!  Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner?  What do you eat, when do you eat, do you skip meals, do you like vegetables.  Food is a topic that is talked about all over the world, day in and day out.

Gosh I had potatoes today when I really wanted rice.  I could have had spaghetti, I’ve been thinking about pasta for days.  We have to eat.  AND… we have to or should drink so many glasses of water a day.  Knowing this, we either have to come up with what we want to eat, then how we will go about getting the meal we want with or without a lot of effort on our part.  In some way, form or another.

Day 18  PL calendar – You will feel better when you take immediate action.

Things have a way of getting more complicated when you procrastinate. Work on taking immediate action and you will discover many ways to tackle the situation.

My eating habits are nothing like they were when I was younger. Change is constant in my life.  But no matter how my tastes have changed, for better or worse, I have to eat,  Yet I dither, I procrastinate, then out of habit, I will see the time, and fix myself something to eat.  It may be nothing like what I had hoped for, or thought I would eat. Can anyone else relate?

Choices, we all have to make them.  How are you doling these days?  The week-end is here, do you change your meal choices for the week-end?  Just asking… =^_^=

Curry on the 21st at church after service, see you there?

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens,   Kahlil Gibran

“A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other wisdom that he is wiser today, than he was yesterday”.  Alexander Pope

This picture was taken on a day trip exploring the back roads in the Gatineau Hills,  We never know what we will find when we turn a corner, or turn left instead of right.

Yesterday I was driving along  with clear blue skies when I came to a red light.  Instead of going left I went right and drove right into dark gray clouds, driving winds, and hail. In an instant the world went from, what a beautiful day, to Whoa!!! hello adventure.  Such is life.  For 15, 20 minutes or so, we drove in a gray snow blind. Barely able to see the road ahead. Then as quickly as it came, the storm left us.

Life is full of surprises, and how we accept and deal with them, is our choice.  Have a great day everyone.  Visit Norm’s blog for a link to more doors. Norm 2.0

Day 16 of the PL calendar for 2019

Even thought you may have put your best effort into doing something, you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Be happy, live to spread happiness and joy wherever you go – people will think you mad, but oh how divine it is to share a smile with another being.  A dog wags his tail enthusiastically when you say hello, the cat, rushes to snuggle and purr in your arms. ah there is an unspoken bliss when we are harmonizing.  Try it.  You may like it.

PL Principle 21    will live in true harmony with the world around me.

Bom dia…

flashback 2006

back yard a2006The last few days, maybe even weeks, I have found myself thinking of a different time and what was.  How a young garden, took shape, and grew till it no longer resembled what was.

back yard 2006

Life mirrors nature, the link between the two has been established since way before I was born.  I am only now pulling the fragments of the past into what I have been living and what is to come.  I can feel the stirring of new beginnings, I know that I am already well into discovery mode.

Today, day 15 of the PL Calendar – Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses an develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.

Yesterday I drove to Montreal, the day was bright, balmy and welcoming.  Each mile was a new beginning.  Even though I have travelled this route many times, it was like a first visit.  The landscape along the way, simply would not be still.  The shades of late autumn strutted their charms against the blankets of pristine snow.  I felt their happy waves, and delighted in the variety of picture postcards they flashed my eager eyes as I drove by. Mother Nature, stayed with me all the way, the best tour guide ever.

2006aLife is a blessing, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude.  Thank you all for sharing my world,  Life is love, and love is YOU and the world we are in.

Feliz domingo

Good morning all, if you live with dogs, you know that getting out of bed in the middle of the night can lose you your place in bed very quickly.  Pulling up the covers didn’t help, they simply repositioned themselves so that your entry back under the warmth of the blankets can’t be managed without their help.  You will note that neither one of them has drifted back into a deep sleep.  The little mischief makers are patiently waiting.

Thank you, yes, I did manage to get back under the covers, all three of us had a very fitful sleep.  And now.  Another day begins.

PL Calendar day 13 (Perfect Liberty 2019)

Kejimkujik National Park, NS

_mll5657 nova scotia

Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia, a very large and lovely area, with many hiking trails, rivers and falls.  Included are areas sacred to the indigenous MiKmaw people of Nova Scotia.  (photo M. Lewis)

I saw the picture on social media, and was totally blown away, especially after I found the face that was looking out from behind the trees.  I just loved the picture… so was taking a closer look, and et voila, beautiful isn’t it.  The photographer, often has breath-taking photos… this one, begged a second look.  I am so thankful, that my request to use the picture was greeted with an affirmative answer.  Another reason for considering visiting Nova Scotia again.  It has been too long since my last visit.

PL Calendar, day 12   Be cheerful and Carefree

Without putting on airs or trying to be someone you aren’t just be yourself.  This will give people a good impression of you and things will move forward in the right direction.

This world is filled with wonders still to be discovered.   Let’s go forward into 2019, with peace in our hearts, and the desire to  be in, and share more of the natural wonders in this great land of ours.

void or

gimme bling

A black void.  As an artist, I had a moment the other day, where I wanted to express that very moment,  not think about anything but saying, Blah. Snap, and so what. Followed by many exclamation marks.

My eyes searched my workroom… till they fell on a big bottle of black glue.  Ah Ha! I took an old canvas and began to just vent with the glue on the canvas.  It was black and shiny that I dug out a bottle of cut glass pieces I had for dear knows what reason… and some gold cording.  Then gave way to.. come what may.

Voila… t’is a black void.   my sometime co-pilot, when she saw it, said it looked like “inside a sparkling cave filled with shiny somethings. enchanting”  =^_^= I have been blessed with wonderful kind friends.

In the sunlight or under a light, it is true it has bling.  Bling  that winks and shines in a very cheerful way.  This is an example of, starting out with a blank – need to just vent/express…. letting go, and then seeing the results.

PL Calendar day 9 (2019)   It’s interesting because it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.
