Thursday doors 4.25.19

Thursday doors, how much I have missed being able to participate in this series.  My hankering for a door brought me to my desk to look through my photos

An open doorway to another time and place?  A place tended and serene.

A romantic hide-a-way where one can laze the day away.  In this one, fall is in the air, and the weather holds that rustic charm of warm colours and textured wood grains.

To so many of us, who chase the many varied and interesting doors, and doorways.  They are passages to hidden or unknown “adventure”  There is always a story to be found when one enters through a new door.

Garden gates are another temptation. How many of us have had wonderful conversation in a nursery or greenspace over the admiration of floral and fauna.

We need only look around at all the different ways we use and display doorways, archways, gateways.  They are the subject of stories, and many are the central focus in a photo-story.  To the door chaser, they are a work of art,  not in themselves, but their presentation.

 

I know that spring is outside t.he door, but my mood this morning appears to be mellow. I am drawn to fall colours, and the charm I’ve found in my library of photos that I have collected.

When we wake up in the morning, we get to decide which will be the doorway we will use to begin the day.

The choice is ours.

PL calendar, day 25

Pay Careful attention without overly straining yourself or taking things too lightly.

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that  will help you to better express yourself.

foo foo food

 

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?

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)

Face Challenging Situations with Positive Determination

When you encounter difficulties, boldly take measures to overcome them.  By creatively finding solutions, you will feel the joy in tackling any situation.

PL Principle #5   I will not get angry at anyone or anything.

PL Principle # 7  I will not have a mind to be hasty, worry, nor be pessimistic.

Be happy everyone, it is in our power to be happy, the choice is ours.  Having problems attaining some of your goals, we are here for you.  Always.

Graffiti art

IMG_1123

Segunda-feira, Greetings everyone, Bom Dia – What is art?

In PL, Precept #1  Life is Art and because we believe that each individual is unique, that says that each person, will have their own creativity.  Their own way of addressing life’s opportunities, and deciding how they will express their personal creativity.

If I had cropped the above picture in a different way, it would have been simply a work of art.  Someone’s way of making a statement, expressing their “need” at the time.  Because it was done on someone elses’ property, we call it graffiti,  The person expressed themselves but at the expense of a neighbour or the city .  “Art”  in this case, the act of expression, made or makes a statement beyond the person’s creativity with a paint can, it says that this person has a disregard for his /her neighbour’s or communities property.

We all make choices, each and every moment of the day.  At the end of the day, only you know if your true intentions were expressed, or if you made choices that perhaps could have been expressed in a different way.

PL Calendar 29   Be cheerful and easy-going.  Everything has a way of turning out alright in the end.  Relax and always try to think positively

Salad anyone?

tuna,avocado, egg noodle salad

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
