Monday 12

Monday morning greetings… I am revisiting some of the farms I have taken in the past. The big red heritage one in particular because I was out that way on the week-end. The construction has started now. Now we see bigger mounds of earth, as they rip out all the pastures around it to map out the streets that will be going in, and where the houses will be built.  Already it is surrounded by big box store shopping areas, and a small mini golf course.  There are all the convenience fast food stops as well..

The skies are still a beautiful blue, and stretch on for miles, but gone are the rows of produce and the beauty of wandering farm animals enjoying the sunshine and breezes.

I have been out driving back roads lately, had special events that were way out of the city, one along the St. Lawrence.  A small town along Hwy 2 and the St. Lawrence, Iroquois.  Small it might be, but it has a good restaurant(s), a small thrift shop, and a couple more interesting little shops.  For me it was the drive along the secondary roads to get there.  I took my time and drank in open spaces.

For button collectors, the thrift shop has big bowls of buttons you can go through and pick out how many and which ever ones you want. Fill a small cello bag for $1.00.


PL Calendar day 12  Be cheerful and carefree

Without putting on airs or trying to be someone you aren’t just be yourself.  This will give people a good impression of you and things will move forward in the right direction.

Chop suey Tuesday- impressions

p1000339

First Impressions – we all have them, when we see something, we take it in and in seconds, we have an impression

p1000340

No matter the impression, I find myself looking at the details, and the story the building tells me.

p1000344

Sometimes, the impression is one that is a statement, and I “know” it is not a place that I want to visit or know too much about it.  It  has a facade that clearly says…”I’m here, don’t mess with me”

p1000353This oldie sat off the road, I had to get out and take a closer look, this is the back of the house.  We tried to find out more about the house, it was for sale, we took the details, unfortunately, the seller, didn’t have a web site, and we were out of State by the time we were where we could look further into it.  I’ve not forgotten, and given the time hope that we will discover more about the house, and the selling price.

p1000346What is the fascination, don’t really know… we are on the look out for a property in the States that we can easily get to, and tour from there.  Maybe it is just a dream, its nice to be able to travel into the possibilities.  Life is busy, it is nice to have a place to drift too

p1000333my travels take me to a lot of places, I thrill on them all.  Each tells a story, each one is unique.  I feel like that about people too.  It is not what someone else tells me, it is what I “see” for myself.

The past may play a part in what a person, or place is “today”… however, we live in the now, and it is what you see and feel NOW that counts.

PL Principle #2   I will not have complaints about others, matters nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

PL Principle #6  I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.

PL Precept # 6 Efface your self conceptions.

What impression will you make on the world today?
