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.=^_^=

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.

Ok I’m not in the wilderness, but I could be. Right, I’m not lost either, but just because I know where I am doesn’t mean I’m not lost. If I was an ant wandering around down there amongst the foliage, it would be a wilderness. (perspective)
Especially if I had to find my way home, and back up the tree. Would the rain hamper my progress? Certainly in a downpour in the truck, when it comes down in sheets, it is very difficult to see, even with the window washers going at full speed.
Picture perfect isn’t what the day is all about. I guess basically my thoughts are wandering, and tho’ I’m in a familiar place physically, my gray matter is heading for the wilderness, to find some breathing room.
Sometimes it is best, to let life around you, sway and bend as it may, tomorrow will be another day. So when you wake, it will be a brand new day.

Good Morning, thought I’d show you the snow outside the house today, it isn’t so pretty today. After the huge storm of the other day, dropping over 50 plus centimeters on us, we still have a lot of it piled on the streets. It is cloudy and overcast, and with the sidewalk plow having gone by, well this is what we can see. This is the pile along the street, and below is the snow on our front lawn.
The blue spruce is playing peek-a-boo, happy that we put a barrier between it and the sidewalk. Not every day is sunny, and not all days bring out the crystal lights in the snow. But it is still the same snow we love to see when the sun shines merrily on it, dazzling us with its glittering display. I’m not a skier, but when I did do X-country, the wet snow of day such as this, was sloppy. Temperatures are going up and the snow out there is being rained on.
Even the house has lost its country cottage charm this morning. A positive here, I see the bird feeder needs more seed. Actually, I loved the vintage, look when we bought ther house, and even today, as I see her braving yet another winter…I admire how she has stood the test of time. They the weather forecasters, tell us it will be a cloudy wet day, all day. As the temperature rises, the streets will really get mushy. Hmmm choices, stay in, go out, its darn warm and cosy inside, and I certainly have a lot of projects and things to do… isn’t it wonderful to have all these choices. =^_^= we can sit and share a cuppa tea/coffee..
Luckily I share my world with other bloggers who travel the globe and live scattered all over the world. I know they’ll be dropping in during the day with stories of their own. Many will bring a ton of sunshine they’ve captured here and there. No matter where we are in the world, we are always sharing life/the Universe with others. In today’s world of the internet and social media, we can cultivate and explore all parts of the world, make new friends, and best of all, we thrive, we grow when we allow friendships to blossom and bloom. In exploring the various dimensions of ourSELVES through the friendships we make, our world as we know it, expands, we know that what is outside our door today, is only a moment in time.. in this very same moment and time, a friend is basking in sunshine on a mountain top or sandy beach.

Does anyone, can anyone remember or recognize these little give aways?
I once had these Black eyed Susans in our garden, over time, they simply disappeared.

Have a good day everyone!
Good morning dear friends, I found a quote today, that I am going to post the way I found it, and then make a few changes to it. Smiles I hope you enjoy it.
Can’t do it, I’ll have to retype it for you……. Yay it worked. See persevere and you will get results! Ah life is good!!!
So here goes, for me this says..
It has little to do with the position I have in life
or the title that is given me (status)
whether or not I have fame or fortune
but everything to do with
the Dream in my heart
and my sincerity and desire with in me
to give everything I have
to being the best person I can in this life.
PL Principle 1 I will live paying careful attention,putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
