Avocado toast

Avocado toast

??? so where is the picture of my newest discovery.  Simple, it was so good, I ate it before I could take a picture. That is what happens when you skip breakfast, buy fresh avocados and come into the house hungry.  I mashed the avocado and tossed it with mayo and garlic salt.  Nothing fancy, but oh so yummy.

I’ve got fresh shiitake mushrooms and new type of dried mushroom soaking so that I can have mushrooms and “fish” for supper.  Side order of fresh green veggies from the Asian grocers ( T & T )  I got fresh ginger, that I will slice into slivers to toss with the greens. I am not going to tell you about the toasted bagel I had for dessert.. =^_^=

No, to those of you raising an eye brow.. nothing on the bagel, no butter, not cream cheese, I ate it nude.

Sunday Greetings!

kayaking,iceEver tried ice kayaking………….. I certainly haven’t, nor had I even heard of it …  There is so much of life beyond  what we know in our own personal  worlds. So much to see, do and explore.  Question begs, do we do them, do we even get up out of our comfort zones and  travel the roads, or are we arm chair travelers.  No answer required, you know the answer in your heart.  Recently I had a “blue” patch, I had a yearning for a good cry, had no idea why.  It just washed over me. To me this is a sign from above, means something is happening in and around me and I’m not reading the clues, I’m missing something.  The Universe has been obviously sending me subtle messages and I’ve been missing them. We all have such ahHA moments.  In our own way, we are faced with a challenge and for some reason, either we follow the same old patterns at dealing with them, or we stumble through the process and really come no closer to resolving the matter.

Tao say, a wise man/woman knows when to stand still.  Go neither forward. or sideways..  stand still, retreat  step or two.. stop. Practice being still.  Pray, meditate.. don’t just do it.. you have to put our whole effort into being still, listening to your inner voice.  Really listen.   Sometimes we reach a point where change is both necessary and timely, but we cling and try to hold on.  Nature is every changing, trying to hold on to something is futile, spring, becomes summer, and summer fades into fall, our lives move forward, whether we want them to or not.   PL Precept. #11   Always be with God.

michigan,Glen arbor, crystal lake by forestladt flickrThe photographer of this picture, managed to show us the fish in the water, and the stillness of the lake/stream…. I’m winter wearing, =^_^= and long for the sounds of spring/summer and fall……  but today is here, and I will embrace what the day has to offer.  Starting with saying my good morning to each and every one of you.  Thank you for sharing this moment with me.  I so appreciate and love each and every one of you.  God Bless…………Oyashikiri    

Remember to smile…                         smilePencil   psst  do you know what fish symbolize?

 

Lost and Found

X nov 23b_007Lost to us is the simplicity of yesterday

Lost is the innocence of your younger years

X nov 23b_001Lost is the time when we were happy to simply explore and enjoy the world around us, where everything was new, being friends meant secrets shared and fun and laughter was just being together, free to play out our dreams and fantasies.

Where are those moments now?  Do you still cherish your dreams, do you make time for that young boy/girl you once were..

X nov 23b_013Today I found a quiet place, far away where nature was at play, and the day was playing out like a long forgotten song.  I watched while a bear patiently waited for the fish to come her way, I heard the sea gulls call out as they flew across the skies.  In the distance, I spied a small cottage waiting to be discovered.

X nov 23b_009To my surprise, as I got closer, I saw two chipmunks sharing nuts on the porch.  I’d found a bit of paradise and it was all mine to enjoy.

X nov 23c_002For a time anyway – after all, happiness and beauty should be shared.  Today I found a quiet corner, a place where imagination and dreams can be relived.  Link will follow at the end of this blog.  It isn’t enough to do things just to make yourself happy =^_^=  I did meet a fellow traveler while I explored.  He too was taking in the beauty of the build.

X nov 23b_006Like two ships that pass in the night, we exchanged greetings and moved on, each respectful of the other’s space.  No matter we were in the same place, our photographs I’m sure were very different.  Just like in life, even when we stand shoulder to shoulder and look out at the world, each person will draw their own impressions.  That is what makes life so interesting.
