Good morning everyone, I was challenged to post a picture of dog(s) Pffft. easy task, since I don’t get to FB much except through my blog, I have given you pictures of dogs here, to achieve the goal, of dogs for smiles!!!

I didn’t do a typo the quote today is from the 29th, year 2011.

Lack of Explanation is a sign of your lazy mind. Sometimes you incorrectly assume they should know this already. Always strive to explain things thoroughly with a ind heart.

Day 20  PL Calendar

You are YOU, Others are Others

You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing things.  Don’t worry about what other people will say.  Simply take care of the task at hand.

And that is the reality.  That is just the way  it is.  Our experiences, our past shapes our future….  Make each moment count.  Live each day with new “eyes” … be open to new experiences, choices, we all have them…

Tomorrow is the 21st  For members of Perfect Liberty, we celebrate with a Thanksgiving Service.  We give thanks and show our appreciation for the blessings of the past month, while sincerely renewing our determination to follow and practice the Precepts and Principles of PL.

PL Precept #21    Live in Perfect Liberty

 

finally, a flashback

prince-edward-county-2011This is a gate that we drove by some 4, 5 years ago.  I’ve never forgotten it, and I have hunted through my files to find it.  Never could locate it.   Today, Facebook sent me a..do you remember this.. message, it wasn’t this gate, but a location close by, in that time and space.

prince-edward-county-4I had seen this rock and was smitten.  I was sure I’d never see it again, but here it is.  Good ole’ Facebook.  There is something about rocks that appeals to me.  Any size will do, if it speaks to me, that’s it, I have to stop and take a closer look.

prince-edward-county-2When putting together a Chinese garden, (and Japanese) rocks are very symbolic.  Just seeing these pictures again, take me back to that fall day.  I can hear the crispness of the leaves under foot, and smell that delicious scent of musky  foliage and the moist evergreens getting ready for the winter season, Even the sky is a different hue of blue.

prine-edward-2011The earth and moss blend together, leaving the faint scent of the cooling breeze, I can’t help it, I bend closer for another look.

prince-edward-county-fall-2011The center leaves are fluffy with a soft baby down, or fuzz on a peach. I can almost see the first velvet touch of frost that will soon come to tenderly lie in the opening at its core. I am energized with the beauty of it all.

The gate was so haunting, it has never been forgotten… and now.. seeing it again, the memories of that time are just like new.  A rerun of my very own special “movie”

Today at church we talked about putting “makoto” in all we do.. (sincerity) (being present, in the moment) that is so true, when we are really present, our memory  is etched in such a way, that we get to enjoy it again.

Thank you for sharing these moment with me. We were in the area of Prince Edward County, we had taken a wine tasting route, totally not something we would ordinarily do.. and look what we found.  No, not wine, deliciously delightful, slices of Mother Nature.

does anyone know exactly where this fence is?

Thursday doors – “doors”

sharon-springs-doors

Sharon Springs,NY

I don’t know whether to thank Norm or not.  I have alway had a “love” for doors.  From early years I collected pictures of doors, admired doors and bla bla bla….  but with his little challenge, it has  put “focus” on doors again, in a sense that I see a door and wonder.. hmmm will do this for the challenge..

My husband and I for some odd reason, have taken to a game on Facebook called Cafeland.  It is a cute game, we have a restaurant and we make food, sell to customers and of course, build the business and you make money, and if you keep at it, your money of course builds.  I began playing the game years ago, when I first began in FB, I soon tired of it, being too busy with commitments etc. in my day to day, and my friends had basically moved on to other games.

What I didn’t know my husband who does not play games, except Scrabble and Word with Friends, who had started a restaurant to help me while I was playing, liked seeing the $$ add up, so he just over the years kept playing,  Long and the short of it is, thar when a new friend learned about Cafeland, she started to play and I reopened my cafe so that I could help her with the challenges.  WELL  Hubby was now way ahead of me in not only points but in $$$.  He’d built up a fortune.

I began to play regularly again, to try to catch up, but with years under his belt, he is just too far ahead in points and he has managed his money so that, I think there is just too much there to work through. So being the considerate wife, I offered to remodel his cafe ….evil grin….   knowing his wife, kind husband says sure, and leaves me to it on his computer and with his accumulated fortune. hehehehehehehe.. pulls my witches hat further down on my head.

window-to-the-past

I redid all the floors, walls, put in new windows, decor, and still he has millions and millions left over.  I even put in new DOORS.. two of them.  Here you go Norm… it is while I’m looking at the doors, what to put in, that I get this little “ping”   I start wondering if I can use the  doors in Cafeland, in Norm’s Thursday doors.  Norm!! what have you started.

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

sounds of snow

01bab9cc8ee11e0865791ab1861650ae8812c1af6b

There is something to be said about the sounds on waking during or after a fresh snow fall.  It is a muffled silence that wraps the house in a cozy ambiance.. .I lay for almost an  hour today visiting the many postings of friends on Facebook.  Never would I do such a thing on another day.  Somehow the quiet of the morning allowed the lazy side of me to enjoy the moment.  I got to see videos that I otherwise would probably not have seen because I would have been up out of bed and right into my morning routine.

01f3f5cd21e1530b98cb6267f005f07dd81f66074fWhen I did get up, it was to grab the iPhone and head for the back door to take some pictures to share with you on the wonders of the new fresh fallen snow.  Suet and bird feed are put in the feeders in the front where active dogs can’t get at the dropped seeds.   First line of attack for birds is the feeders themselves, only when they can’t get at the feeder or the feeder is bare waiting for a refill do they pick up after themselves.  OK ok that is not quite true, the smarter ones are happy to get the fresh seed slopped by the type A birds that are busy trying to outdo themselves by being first on the small ledge of the feeders.

While we think of decorating trees and our homes, Mother Nature has been busy putting her own signature on the look of the holiday season. “Life is Art” (PL Precept 1)  Yesterday this same scene would have been drab and weary from the cold winters day.  Today with the artistic touches of nature, it is vibrant and alive, giving us a totally different side of its many “faces”..

In every little nook and cranny of our “inner selves” is a story to be told, a “golden moment”  we have lived and will relive in another season.  Some lessons come back too many times to count, others come along, and we never see them again, why, because we captured and retained the essence of the first visit.

0162f5811908271b1e537c6350bdf4d5a7a7416f8fMy lazy mind appreciated the morning lie in, so did the dogs who never stirred from my side, we were swaddled under warm blankets and the quilt I made a couple of years ago.  We were content.  Enjoy such moments when they come to you.  The  many “sounds of snow”… just one of the pleasures of winter.

Hope you enjoyed the tour of my winter garden.  Love you all, each and every one of you. =^_^=

Rules – Good morning everyone!

!cid_1_2553387078@web160902_mail_bf1_yahooLook at the dog’s eyes, I can almost hear him/her asking his mistress “really, did I sign up for this”, this is what you want me to do?”  Meanwhile the little cuddly friend is happily drinking from the bottle and thinking only of how yummy, delicious it is. This is a wonderful picture. I send an enormous thank you to  the artist that put the energy and creativity into bringing it to us.  It brought a smile to my day and for sure, to millions of others who saw and delighted in the composition.  Before social media, we were still able to come up with such clever ideas, and take pictures to show our friends and family  But we couldn’t share like we do today, we didn’t have the tools to allow total strangers all over the world to share in our creative moment.

Yes we still had artistic expression, we still lived our lives moment by moment, we did our chores, played, worked and played some more, but the element of having our creativity, thoughts,dreams and expressions on display for all to see…  well …. that was unknown.  Until…. someone somewhere broke a rule, or stepped outside a box  and brought new potential and far reaching ideas into tangible possibilities. There is a joy in being creative.  Every day I see friends who live miles and sometimes continents apart sharing their day and thoughts with friends they’ve met in virtual worlds, on Facebook, in games.. and it is not just inane chatter, often is is meaningful, supportive and caring.

While we live in a world where there is a framework of laws, morals and rules to follow, the keyword here is framework…. when Divine Spirit is our constant companion and we are always in touch, (connected) love is our motivation,world peace and inner joy our goal, then a rule is a man made what? guideline?………… I know they are needed…………..but…………….

PL Principle #2

Good Morning everyone..  How are you on this lovely Saturday… Each day when I wake before I start my day, I like to read the PL lesson of the day, and after prayer and reflection, let my mind wander to what my personal meditation should be. Today I found that of the 21 Principles in PL, ,my mind’s eye caught #2.. and this is where it stopped    PL Principle 2  reads – I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions.  a9395a7285c43a211e4ec647f8727819

The lesson for those of you who have not read it today, or do not have the calendar itself, is about valuing those who are nearest and dearest to us.  They are so close to us, that often we forget just how wonderful and special they are to us.  We may even take for granted the love and caring they bring into our lives (smiles) My life is very blessed with a caring,understanding  husband who is a real partner in life, and friends that I treasure for the many wonderful memories and the genuine caring they have shown to me over the years.  Some friends we seldom see, yet we visit often in our hearts, and when we meet it is if we have never been apart.  I saw on FB (Facebook) the other day, that one friend had renovated her cottage this past summer.  It brought memories of all the trials and challenges she faced during the first years she and her husband bought the cottage.  What lovely memories. (mental note to self)  Call Sue =^_^=

Not all memories are fantastic, but all of them were of value in my personal development, in my “growing pains”.  It is not only our physical bodies that “age”but our mental /spiritual selves.  When we remember to value and respect one another, life takes on a more positive energy.  Oyashikiri
