Bom dia, hello everyone

Fall is in the air, the perky nip of cooler weather is there to greet me in the morning when I let the dog out. 16 degrees C, ( 45 F).  The fall has to be my favourite season of all.. I enjoy each  one of our very different seasons, but fall weather  has a special place in my heart.  Every year  around this time the leaves start to work their magic on the landscapes.  The lazy hazy days of summer disappear, there is a quicker and snappier mood to our walk.  The fall clothes come out, the warm sweaters, closed in shoes, and wonderful combinations of casual fashion.

It is true, in the fall you are more likely able to draw me out into nature, the bugs and insects are not around, and where I would love a night in this cabin, I really feel the we would have problems taking the dogs out at night.  The next picture is of a “pond” in a secluded area of Nova Scotia, Canada where someone camps.  We have been to such locations in our travels, believe me, the exhilaration of such moments is beyond words.

In my personal journey to become a better person, I enjoy my time away as much as my time in the city.  Life is wherever I am.  It is when we stop moving forward in our lives that we grow stagnant.   One one  personal card I had printed, read, Discover a new you…. explore active meditation…. Step outside the box.   What is active meditation, active meditation is when you live each moment of your day with Makoto (sincerity) with a focus on being a better person in all you say and do.  Like the world we live in (nature)  our moods and self expression changes. When we accept that the only constant in life is change, then we are well on our path to living with a peaceful heart.

Internal Clock

Internal Clock

Meet the Tin Man, he is one of the garden personalities that hang round to talk and chat with visitors to our “outdoor living space” He has been around for years, if you are willing to listen, he will regale you of many of his life changing experiences.

My personal internal clock tells me it is time for Mr. Tin Man and his other seasonal friends to come in for awhile. Days are getting shorter, nights longer, Taste buds are asking for more “warm comforting, nesting” nourishment. I don’t crave the rich energizing broth of ox tail soup till my body starts to feel the daytime chill in the air.
Then it is time for a visit to the market for freshly pulled carrots,I love the new darker ones that when you slice them open there is a bright orange center to them. YUM, the sharpness of the northern home grown garlic, the many varieties of onions, and of course the multitude of different squashes are now ripe for the taking.
The roasting pan has been getting used, I’ve had it out several times this week. Where the last many months, we’ve seldom had meaty meals, I’ve now added small pieces of either pork, chicken ( dark meat), or beef not only for the flavour but for the nutrition they offer.
Yes dear reader, the internal clock has kicked in, nesting is occurring.
I’m wanting the smell of baked bread, home made soup simmering on the stove, and my constant glass of water, has gone from iced, to hot from the tap.
Sandals are being put away, the winter footwear is being examined (no I didn’t do it when spring arrived, I was too busy and excited about the baby buds, and beckoning skies) There are two more bags of clothing/shoes etc. to be recycled. Ever notice that what you liked and felt good in last fall, just doesn’t cut it this year. =^_^= LOL its all part of that darn “internal clock”
The shift in colours and materials being used for my artist expressions have also changed. The changes don’t happen overnight, they just happen. When you realize that your “internal clock” has been activated and acted on.. then you “know” you’ve entered the “new” season.

Our “Internal clock” and “inner voice” work together as ONE to GUIDE us on a DAILY basis, often we simply don’t hear or get the total drift of what is being said until we are well into the “new phase” of or life

In the rearranging, storing and sorting, I have rediscovered another “teacher”…  delighted to have reconnected, I will be bringing “Woody” in to church to meet you, one Sunday in November.  Woody is looking forward to sharing with you.

Once you are in sync with your “internal clock” and you make up your mind and accept that it’s a new season… be enthusiastic, jump on board “with the program”, after all, veux,veux pas,  (want or not want), soon it will be winter.  Have your winter coat ready, your woolies (if you wear them) make sure your boots will keep you dry and warm………………………….and SMILE…

Embrace winter, you can’t change it, and it has a lot to offer.  Stay tuned.

Toasty warm Blessings, now and always.

Yup, Fall is here

Yup, Yup,, Fall is coming

leaves are falling some trees will soon be bare
it is cooler outside, but still the sun shines bright.
I love being outside, anytime,  any where.
as long as I have you dear friend in sight.

have I told you lately, how I love having you in my life
gosh, I should tell you every day
why, because not a day goes by
not one single day, where I’m not touched by your love
and enthusiastic acceptance of me, in your life.
Human that I am, self absorbed I get.
patiently you wait, you sit, lie or just rest
always by my side, I feel you there, and know
I always know, with you in my life. I’m never alone.

>>Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life…I will not fear, for you are always close beside me……
my strength renewed, you guide me along the right path….
Like a tree, I stand strong and proud, arms reaching up into the heavens….alleluia, alleluia

The Joy of Expression is in the Process!

Blessings .. always and forever…
