Konnichiwa – bom dia!!

What goes around, comes around....  over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten.  The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”

PL calendar day 17

Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.

Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are.  Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.

With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails.  Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well.  Each day truly is a new beginning.

PL Precept #19 Begin Once you Perceive.

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?

Stir Fry Saturday

Yup.. shopping for supplies I will need for my February, and spring cards.  Time to think ahead.  On my list of places to go was a big art supply store in a major shopping mall.  I did not get there early, so…………. I was there at a time when the parking lot was wall to wall vehicles and shoppers were in possibly every walking space in the halls between the stores.

This is only November.  Imagine in the States where they still have Thanksgiving to go, before they are hit with the Xmas shopping  frenzy.  All around me I heard people talking about their lists, and how far they had gotten, and what was left to look for.

Penguins are big this year. I know the above is a Puffin, he’s a cutie, thought I’d give him some “press” =^_^=   So many of the clothing stores, had some kind of sweater with a penguin on it.  You will get to see a lot of them if you are out looking around.  The other   thing being marketed is the Ugly Sweater… These are new .. is the whole idea of the “ugly sweater” not to come up with a vintage one from days gone by???  Anybody?

Just so you know, this is what is coming, or so we are being told.  In preparation for such an event, I have begun to stock up, for days of “nesting”  Which brings me back to my card making. =^_^=   How well are you prepared for the next couple of months.  If you are in a climate with 4 seasons, and winter is ahead, do you have your snow tires yet?  Are they on the car/truck?

While I made my way from one shopping location to another, via the highways, (stayed away from the downtown area, Santa was having his parade today) I mumbled to myself that it was time, I took week-ends off from going out and about.  from now on, it will only get busier.

PL Precept # 17    Grasp what is most Essential

PL Precept  # 19   Begin Once you Perceive

I got a lot done, and best of all, I had a lot of time when waiting at lights, and traffic slow downs to think about how much I will enjoy my extra hours of “nesting” once my chores are done.

Charm of days gone by

charm and character of Sharon springs

This was taken in New York State, a few summers ago.  It was a sunny day, and I was out exploring,  in fact, this was my first time to this part of the State, I had read an article on an abandoned health resort, it was so intriguing I wanted to see it for myself.  I blogged about that trip the year I went.  This is one of the pictures that in that file.

Timing in life, is so important,  PL Precept #19  Begin Once you perceive and   PL Precept # 17   Grasp What is Most Essential  

 

Had I not been in the States on that day, enjoying the sights, and wandering down a side street I would never have been able to capture that picture.  The home was bathed in sunlight and shade, the breeze was just right, lifting the flag for almost picture perfect memory.  Whenever I see this picture I’m reminded of that trip, and I want to explore  more of the small towns in  that area.

Rev. Eisuke and I were talking yesterday of how it is so easy to “perceive” something, yet not take action… for whatever reason, we don’t follow through, guess what “something” doesn’t get done.  Or we miss something that was essential in the grand scheme of things.  We didn’t look at or take into consideration the full picture.

In the teachings of PL, we try to encourage and show why following the Precepts as best we can, is so important to our own quality of life and the happiness of not only ourselves but those around us.

Make someone happy today,  SMILE  share the  LOVE  include it in your day, it will radiate in your smile.
