Disco Monday aka Wednesday

arriving for some disco

the clan start to gather

the fun began

at Pacifique (SL) the music, the atmosphere, the friends,

a musical interlude, a nice way to end the day.

Ok that was how I ended my day, but the start was just as great.  We drove out to visit with our new whippet, here she is spending some time with her soon to be brother.  Who is being as aloof and distant as he can be.  Real party poop.

Keeper 10.18.17b

Meet Keeper, she is 5 years old.

Keeper 10.18.17cOK she saying, I’ve done my few minutes with big brother, now let’s do something else. She is a sweetheart, can’t wait for her to be home with us full-time.

There is room in a day to do a lot of things, attend to what needs doing, resting, and having some “chill” time.

tired takes on new meaning

dragon soft

This was a picture a did a while back.  I titled it, Dragon Soft, you’ve  seen it before shortly after I painted it.  As sometimes happens, I paint something put it away, and don’t look at it again, till doing something else I come across it.

Today we are moving into several weeks into the journey of our cancer voyage.  Each day is a new day, nd every day, I am blessed with the kind words, and messages of friends who remind me that they are holding us in their prayers and sending healing vibes our way.

It is an amazing feeling to know that there is such caring and thoughtfulness surrounding us.  I appreciate it especially when out of the blue, I am struck down with an over-whelming feeling of “tired”.  It is like nothing I’ve ever known, and I really can’t describe it.  Everything just seems to grind to a halt.. and I NEED.. to sit down, close my eyes, and just wait for the moment to pass.

When my husband is out, I find I’m waiting for him to come home, just so I know he is safe.  I know that over the course of the next weeks, even months.. I will be inconsistent with my blog.  I beg your patience.  I am eternally grateful for your continued friendships and support.

Tuesday – friendship!

hydrangea 3

When a friend lets you down

there is disappointment along with a frown

it won’t last long,

never-the-less it smarts

or hurts that someone you care for

so casually drops the ball

thinking nothing of how you feel

and appears not to care at all

hydrangea 8.20.17

on the surface

nothing seems changed

yet, I know now

that altho’ we had/have plans

my friend will again,

drop the ball

if a more attractive offer comes along

not a pretty reality, is it

I am thinking that

our definition of friendships

are not the same at all

sad..

happy day

lunch Baton Rouge 7.25.17

Every once in a while, you get to have a special lunch with good friends, there is shared laughter and playful fun.  Let’s not forget, great food.  Steak rare… tender, moist lobster tail, and a baked potato that was simply delicious.  The waitress said try it, I did, and .. let me tell you.. it was wickedly sinful.  No dessert needed.

Enjoy every moment of your day!

Today it was easy peasy.  Genuine laughter, conversations, light, interesting and comfortable.  Yup, a hedge hog, possum and fox, make for good company and a great lunch. Me? a cross between a fennec and a cat =^_^=  That is all I’ll say.

Happy mid-week everyone!

a spa day – really!

For real.  A special visit for 2 MapleLea dolls who got to visit an American Girl Salon at the AG Boutique at Chapters downtown Ottawa, right in the heart of the city. They were so thrilled..

First they got to pick their new hair styles, and then the colours of the bows they wanted.  There was even talk of nail polish for their nails, and having their ears done.  We did look at earrings, but when  roller skates were added to the want list.. it was agreed, we would come back on another day. I got to look around for new accessories for their wardrobes that to will wait for another day.

The staff is so courteous, and well-informed, they were able to answer all the questions, well most of them, the girls had about the history and back grounds for a couple of their friends.  Seeing where their friends came from was very exciting for them. they couldn’t stop talking about their experience all the way back home.

There was a lot of excitement and giggling when it came time for the young ladies to get ready for bed.  I somehow think it will take a wee bit of time to get them to settle down.

Being positive,  sharing a good experience with friends, is always a good way to create happy memories

Appreciation for the uniqueness in each of our friends will build a stronger relationship

Friendships are blessings in our lives.

Happy Monday

How nice, another birthday card.  Rosie sipped on her tea, and listened as the movers grunted and called out to each other about the best way to get whatever it was they were moving into the house.  Her birthdays usually came and went without much fanfare, but this time, she had to admit, all the activity of getting the “girls” settled in was a lot of fun.

Each was so different, and the luggage and pieces of furniture that were arriving each day, was so fascinating.  So far, the silver dragon sculpture had been the best, although the very old roll top desk was also interesting. packages of odd sizes and shapes arrived day and night.  She was so glad she had accepted the offer to be here.

Even her old chest of drawers fit in, her room was big enough for her to enjoy the privacy of her room when she needed it.  Yet close enough to the kitchen and public area, for her to keep an eye on the coming and goings of the participants in the project that had brought them all together.

Birthdays were such happy times.  She wondered how old she was… but then, catching sight of herself in the mirror, she smiled.  Who cares she thought.. It is how I feel, and darn it all, I feel pretty good.

roses for Rosie

*knock *knock…” Roses for Ms Rosie”…. said a voice…

The day just couldn’t get any better thought Rosie.  Every day was so full of surprises.!

We hope you had a grand day dear friends… join us again for tidbits on Rosie and her friends.

Dreams

 

sleepingPeaceful sleep, a deep slumber, or simply resting, our bodies need the down time.  Time where physically we can just let our bodies relax in whatever way is comfortable. This way, not having to thinking of anything in particular, we can allow the mind to drift.

There are some who find that it is easier to have low lighting, and quiet, and others will tell us they like quiet music.  Their mind latches on to the melody and they float off into space.

Back when… we used to call wandering in space astral projection.  Are you familiar with that expression.  Dreams are a form of memory recall, but in a code known only to the Universe.  Eartha* and I touched briefly on this during our last outing, From very different backgrounds, and cultures, we still … as human… relate pretty much to LIFE in the same way.

As writers, a dream world is ever-present in our daily lives, as an artist, dreams explode into colour, pattern and textures  if we paint, if we are musical, our voice, or skills with musical instruments, take us beyond our own realities.

Imagine a world with out dreams.  Let go of day-to-day drudgery, allow your spirit to soar and take flight.  Explore in the night, your inner Universe will bring a kaleidoscope of worlds, past ,present and future  to you, open your mind to new possibilities =^_^=
