Good morning all, I used this picture yesterday it is how the Parks and Services composts vegetation they clear in their forest.
Often we just take for granted that our park lands, forests our there for us to enjoy and explore. The big pile left to compost over winter and into next season, reminded me of all the workers that we don’t see during the weeks and months that keep the trails free and open for us to use, 4 seasons of the year.
It is important to say thank you, and appreciate those that work behind the scenes, men and women who we don’t get to see, but work doing things that we get to appreciate every day. Last night JR (company here in Ottawa) had drivers out clearing lane ways that were hard to clear due to the heaviness of the snow and ice. built up over the last couple of days. It is a service I pay for. Yet it was not really an amount of snow that they usually come out and do. This was an accumulation over several days.
When I heard the plow in the lane way I was truly grateful and happy. By the time I got myself organized to run out and say thank you.. the plow was at the end of the street moving to the next customer on the street. That gratitude was so heartfelt. I had tried to move the snow, and it was hard, I had given up, and come inside. This was earlier in the day, to get to church I drove over the hard crusted snow. I so dislike car tracks in the snow/ice that leave ruts over time.
I will make time today, to call the company and say thank you. Appreciation feels good, and I want to pass it on. You?
It is important to say “Thank you” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether it’s food, people or things. Learn to accept everything whether it is something you like or not.

Another day of sunshine, mild temperatures, and welcoming countryside. Savor each moment of the day. It is a gift. I searched the branches for birds, the ground for little paw prints. The day was still young. I stood and took it all in. How grateful I am that I am able to adventure the back roads and really see the beauty that can so easily go unnoticed.
I thank the UNIVERSE that I still have my sight and sense of smell. That I am strong and able to still explore the land as it is meant to be seen. I am grateful that I have a home, and a place to call my own. I will not forget to say thank you at the end of the day…. I pray for peace .. each and every day. Be kind to your fellow man… a smile goes a long way.
Good morning, a week or so ago, went on a door gathering expedition. This last one was the door to a small 3 season canteen. On this brisk day in December it seemed to be saying..”Help, I’m being held up, and shut down, it’s lonely”….. Yes when operating it is busy little place on the main street of a small town, with an active community.
Houses, buildings, streets, what makes them interesting is the PEOPLE, a house is just that, until someone comes along and makes it a home.
Each person has their own special qualities. Each of us is born with a unique worldview. Be respectful of others and learn to get along with people of all types.
My earlier wordless blog, was a fun snapshot I had, that simply had me smiling at the funny things we do when we are young and not caught up in being “prim” “proper” “lady like” and all the other wordings adults have to reign in the innocent playfulness we have as children.
As we mature, and develop, we soon discover that part of us needs to be held back, or kept in the shadows, because “it” may not be appreciated by others. However, we are who we are, and it is not healthy to always try to supress our “child” or “drama”.. drama is not always negative, it is about emoting and expressing feelings.
When we live doing our best not to hurt or slight others taking care to be mindful, avoiding arrogance and conceit, then the simple pleasure of pure expression, can be fun… silly, and inane. When was the last time you made a silly face? Just for fun
To see the snapshot, you will have to visit the first blog of the day =^_^=
Yes there were better pictures, but I wanted to share my special friends (family) from yesterday. These two little girls, are such a joy and Eartha, well she and I have been friends for years.. we are like simply “sisters” from start to finish.
I can’t recall the last time I did a siss boom bah and a chika latta, chika latta chika latta Boom, cheer in a public parking lot before. It was great fun, I didn’t even remember that I knew the cheer. But here I was out in the parking lot showing little A, the footwork, jump and cheer in the parking lot. My older niece is grade A gymnast, she had gone on with her Mother to another location, or she would have outshone our jumps for sure.
Letting go, enjoying the day, and today still enjoying the glow. there is something very special about sharing time with those we love. don’t squander your days, include your family and friends when you can.. Thanksgiving is for everyday.
Doll 1. I am so uncomfortable, the human couldn’t get me to sit up, so she lay me in this box.
Doll 2. well! have you not noticed she dressed me and left me without a head.
Doll 1. Oh! I see now.. I don’t think mine was put back on right.
Doll 2. My feet are cold, where are my shoes. My outfit is incomplete. You have shoes!
There is always a cause behind every result. Good things and bad things can all be traced back to the cause. Once you discover why things turned out a certain way, your outlook will change.

Neither doll has taken into consideration that they just arrived, and their owner is trying her best to figure out how, for doll #2 to put her head on. and for doll #1, when her head was assembled, for some reason, her balance was compromised Research is being done, and soon they will be as right as rain. Meanwhile neither is left naked and in bubble wrap. Shhesh! Got to love them tho’ yes?
Have a great Tuesday everyone. Sending positive happy vibes your way. Enjoy whatever you are up to.
