visions that danced before my eyes
simple beauty that caused my mind to stray
Every day we have the chance to see an array of colours, that really do take the breath away. Yet, somehow we fail to let the quiet impressions of calm, take hold and keep us in a serene state for the rest of the day. Instead we are affected by the sometimes negative incidents that pop up to distract and cause us to stumble or hobble.
It is at such times that I am reminded how priceless good friends are. A kind word, a gentle nudge towards a happier experience. little steps can go a long way. Rain may fall, but the sunshine will always return. Always.
and so, the hours passed the mind tired of wandering down rocky pathways, and returned to wander blissfully towards the captivating land of dreams. The flowers still smiled and waved from their happy beds, only this time their cheerfulness stayed to lead the way. Sleep will come and tomorrow will be another day.
I loved the gummies, anyone care to translate… (when I figure out this bilingual keyboard I will know how to do a question mark )

Feel the positive and energizing energy coming from this photo, the composition, the colours, the presentation. I can inhale and imagine the fragrance of the fresh flowers.

always another day
reality, there is only now
this very moment
Colours of my day…… of late instead of writing in a journal, I do a colour piece, mixed media, these pieces, are either stand alone, or I will use them for backgrounds to other works I might be inspired to do.
Colour plays a part in my day. I love colours that speak loud and clear. Probably because I like life to be clear and uncomplicated. I spent part of today, calling what friends of my Mother’s that are still around to let them know the memorial is coming up soon. Like her, they are up there in age. It is more a courtesy call, to let them know so they are not forgotten. The memorial will take place right down town, not convenient for parking.
As beautiful as they are, all flowers eventually wilt , dry up and fall off. They are so vibrant and joyful when in bloom. I feel so alive, so bad ass healthy. Too bad, when I catch a glance in a mirror, I’m not sure who the person looking back at me is. I say to myself, I’m like the bark on a stately tree, I get better with age.
To celebrate my husband’s birthday, we had dessert.. which is not something we do often. There are advantages to celebrate the passing of time =^_^=

Hi Everyone… my apologies to those of you who have joined our little “group” in the last month or so. I have been experiencing issues with Windows defender, and my security software. While away on my last trip, I noted that several new members had joined up. However when I got back home to have a look and say hello, thank you etc. Some were not to be found, and others caused problems when I tried opening them. So now I am being cautious.
I welcome you .. in time I will find a way to actually get to your blogs. Meanwhile, welcome, welcome, I look forward to getting to know what part of the blogs you enjoy the most. =^_^=
The month of October is a very creative month. In August I begin with the fall greeting cards, and doing up Thanksgiving one, and yes… I get a head start on the ghoulish and witching ones. Yet.. I do not do Halloween. Go figure, I simply like the creativity it brings out in me. I remember in the days when I did ATC* challenges, my envelopes would be decorated with tombstones, ghosts and “characters” in all shapes and sizes.
Today I was told that our cards will be sold at one of the Craft fairs, by two of our members. So here I am doing HO HO HO cards. By December I’m doing Hearts and Flowers cards, and working my way into Irish greetings.=^_^=
Love transcends all known boundaries

Isn’t this beautiful. A picture of a faded bloom from Australia, a very dear and talented friend down under sent me flowers the other night. This was one of the pictures. With the hours spent sitting in the hospital this past week, I felt that this could be a floral representation of my “bed hair”… Soft wispy and static charged.
Being in a different climate, and location on the globe, the vegetation will be so different, here we are going into the colours of autumn, which for us, are the reds, golds, deep metallic shades of rust and crimsons. Where Mother Nature has yet to focus, there is a soft peachy blush to the greens on the hardwood trees, Even a squeeze of lemon.
Please permit me to take a few moments to say a heart-felt thank you to each and every one of you who share this time with me. I know while I was away recently, this blog gained new readers, with my being away from the office, i saw mail, but could not respond. Thank you. Welcome. I could not be … without you.. I truly do care for each and every one of you. It is a joy and a pleasure to visit with you.
In Canada, this is our Thanksgiving week-end. please travel safe if you are on the roads, eat wisely, =^_^= think, “waste” or “waist”. LOL there is a spoil sport in every group.
Happy Weekend …. may your days be blessed with activities that will bring happy memories for years to come.
