Good day to everyone… Bom Dia!!
We all have that friend who can walk into a room bringing the warmth of the sun and the breeze of a tropical day just by smiling. Caring, and thoughtful, the energy is a bright light around her, and sweeps the cares away.
Of course not… not forever, but when that friend comes to share it is a genuine, one on one.
Perfect Liberty calendar, day 16
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.
When we live our lives with genuine feeling, commitment, (Makoto) it is the smile that shares with the world. Others around you feel good, and in turn, radiate, and pass it on.
Love is genuine, it cannot be defined, contained, or captured, it simply IS. Love is life, death and everything in between. Smile today and pass it on.
Take ordinary and turn it into extraordinary and sensational.
We begin our journeys with such innocence
so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness
we find ourselves discovering something new every day.
Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..
These dolls I found the other day
Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one
Where have they been, what stories could they tell.
These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting
hopefully I will learn more there.
For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to acquire.
Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.
Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.
PL Calendar day 15
Being Attentive Makes Life More Enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
Scallop noodles – 1 cluster, cook, drain and cool
Solid light tuna in vegetable oil (99g) use the oil to mash eggs and avocado
Fresh garlic stem*, thinly sliced (to taste)
Fresh crisp lettuce
Sweet red pepper
Green onion and slices of sweet onion (to your taste)
2 hard-boiled eggs
1 large avocado scooped and mashed with the eggs
salt pepper to taste
mayonnaise 1 big tablespoon
Tossed together this is a great easy salad – other seasoning can be added as your taste dictates, ie, squeezed lime, ginger, wasabi…. it is your call.
Make this a day to remember, like a salad, how we put things together, the choices we make, all become a creation of our own doing…..
*garlic stems, I have only found at Asian groceries they are not chives, they are shaped like a pipe cleaner, taste is crisp, and can vary from mild to strong in taste. sold in bunches
Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone. A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months. Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment. I am in a “temporary/holding” zone. It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.
I never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.
My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful. On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona, has stood me well. At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.
I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.
PL day 11
Be thankful for who you are today.
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life. Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.
Good morning everyone… I would like to share with you, the special love greeting I got the other day. What a welcome surprise, thank you both so much.
True friendships, last the years, and transcend the borders of time and distance.
When love is true, it is always with you. Always!
PL Precept # 11 Always be with GOD
PL Precept #15 All is a mirror.
With Gratitude, much appreciation and affection. I thank you.
This is a piece of pie (she said)
let me explain,
it is my second piece of pie (she said)
fresh baked, rhubarb & strawberry crumble
a dab of whipped cream
teamed with a fresh pot of tea
not a dream, no
I really intend to eat the whole thing
Yes, that is what she said….
I did it! I did it!
So pleased was she, not a crumb was to be seen
that was one dessert
that made an impact
for now it is a fact
she willingly ate
a second piece of pie
that is no lie
you know who you are!!!!!
you ate 2 pieces of pie.
PL Calendar day 6
Your joy will increase, Once you make up your mind
If you’re going to do it. Do it with determination. your resolve will create good rhythm.
*** my friend made up her mind, she would have a second piece of pie. She did it. We had a jolly time, the calorie count was of no mind. They will be counted another time. =^_^= *****
Perth Tea Room on the main street.
I say hooks because that is how they were advertised. The display was way up high, the store might have had problems with them disappearing, they are so cute. (Ikea)
Miniature buffs, they are metal.
Have a great day everyone! Be enthusiastic, step outside the box, turn left instead of right, you might just discover something new and interesting.
