Bonnie

Do my friends know me .. or what…

Bonnie is away celebrating the Thanksgiving (Canadian) long week-end with family in other parts of the Province. She saw this and stopped to capture it, knowing she would delight me to pieces when I opened her e-mail.

I noted Bonnie you remained a lady, and unlike me, didn’t go over and take pictures all around the vehicle, and even try to waylay the owner. =^_^=

Friends are worth their weight in gold, and more. Have a good day everyone. Ancestor’s day service will begin at 10:a.m. this morning.

prepping

Before working in a journal, the pages have to be prepped.  Especially since I am a mixed media artist.  I use different medium to work on the pages.  I have had so many projects to work on the past while that I have lost track of time.  I simply spend hours in the studio.  This meant, pushing the Xmas cards to the back of the burner, while I prep* pages to work on them.

*work on the pages – doing backgrounds and then priming them with a Gesso that seals the page so the inks or paints won’t bleed when I begin working on them.

Life is the same. We commit to something then before we are done, something else comes up and we juggle. Choices pop up and we have to decide what is the best way to proceed.  I reasoned that Xmas isn’t till December, BUT. I need to turn them in before the fall, so that the agencies can do what they need to do.

Am I procrastinating when I start something else before I finish another project?  The PL Calendar for day 23 ( I know we are not where near the 23rd) ” Once you have set out to do something, it is your job. ” Job? I am retired !!! Then it goes on to say, Once you have accepted a task, don’t make any excuses, continue the job until the very end and make sure the outcome is something you can truly be proud of.

Written words and philosophies can be so confusing at times.  anyone want to put in some ideas.views, give me something to ponder???

Winks at all her readers/friends…..honestly, I really am interested.  Yes doing this blog this evening is a stalling tactic. =^_^=

Reminder  Sunday, (August 11) service is at 10 a.m.  we will be doing the Ancestors’ Day ceremony.  See you all there!

Happy start to another day!  It is Thursday, the week has flown by.  Already we are celebrating the 11th of the month.  Ancestors Day.

PL calendar day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.  Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”.  Mary Robinson.

Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are.  I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.

When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.

somewhere, sometime, a different scene played out around these doors, the pump was busy every now and then, and a traveller would stop and sit a spell

how you doing, nice day isn’t it,

going far, what else can I do for you?

now we drive up and wait in line for a self-serve pump

pay the pump with a plastic card, put the gas in ourselves,

and drive away, not a word is spoken.  no one cares.

social niceties, and genuine customer service

if it could be seen , would look like the picture above.

still there, however not appreciated, just a memory

of another time and place

Bom dia, bonjour, allo, there is no worries that there will be few hours in my day.  I have plenty  hours stretching out before me, no excuses to not getting more work done in the clearing up, cleaning out of my physical spaces.

Btw I have not cropped or changed the pictures, I am using them just the say my cousin Brian sent them to me.  He and Jon are honeymooning, I get to reap the rewards of their wonderful pictures  they travel from place to place.  There is something to be said of the arm-chair traveller, no packing, no jostling at busy airports, no line ups, etc.. At some time or other we have all been there.

Oh dear I am going to have to look at just what is I that box on the top shelf.  I am sure you have all had that experience too. Life is full of these little “treats”  reminder to self.. Find the happy in all that you do, to change direction I thought I would go make the bed, There I discovered a big lump !

he graciously got himself up and went somewhere else to have his lie in.  Very considerate.

It is now going on seven, I have been successful in removing some of the clutter, but fear not, there is still more for me to do once I take this lot away.  happy finding I found where I had put my sloth stamps away.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do (sincerity)

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things

To members of the PL community, tomorrow is the 11th, we will be celebrating Ancestors Day, service will be at 10 a.m.

Have a great day everyone, if your day is almost over.  I trust it was a good one for you.

I pray for the happiness and well BEing of all.  We are all ONE.
