Today while out and about, I heard that it was St. Pat’s day, wearing of the green… I wondered how I’d missed that, I did know it was the 17th. and it was March… that is what this last year has been like.. I thought I’ll just find some green and take a picture.. well I was out of luck.. mid March in this part of the country, no green.
There was nary a leaf on the trees, nor was there anything on the ground but snow and ice. It was a beautiful day, not too cold, bright, sunny, but no green.
Since today is supposed to be a day of sharing and celebrating, I did want to share some green with you, I’d like all your day/;night(s) to be sparkling and bright. However should you decide to celebrate,… be safe.. and share good times with true love in your heart.
Have clear goals and take appropriate Actions – Always begin with a clear idea o what your goals are. Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.
If you celebrate the wearing of the green, from our home to yours, we wish you a day of rainbows and golden moments to cherish always.
If you are like Velcro, he was patient for the picture, but much happier when his “duty” was over. Our “babies” are constantly reminding us, that altho’ they don’t always understand our actions… they graciously put up with us. Trusting that we will get over the moment soon enough. And we do! Cheers!
Keeper did her part too. They shared the burden of humouring the human. Yes they were well rewarded. =^_^=
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.=^_^=

no matter where we are, who we are interacting with, how we are interacting, it is a very real “connection”
Happiness is not about luck, it is about how you perceive the world around you. I grew up thinking I was Chinese, then one day discovered that I was part Irish. Go figure on my Mother’s side, Did that change who I was, no, for some reason, I have always just said, when asked, I’m Chinese. Interestingly, come March 17, I want to wear green, and I feel a kinship for all that is Ireland. (Irish)
The PL teaching for the 17th . is “The things that happen in our lives are neither good or bad. It is our perspective that determine whether the outcome is good or unfortunate.”
Later in the day I spoke with a special lady who told me of a beautiful relationship she had, and how it had ended when her partner passed away.
Love is such a beautiful emotion, when there is true love, I am a believer that life is and will always hold that love in a very special part of who we are. A good friendship never really dies, it fades away, but the joy of that friendship will live in our hearts for a long time.
I agree, some people are just not meant to be lovers, or married, but at one time they shared a very special bond, and that memory, that experience, will always be part of their chemistry, (makeup).it will form who they are in the present. We all know the expression, “it is better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all”.
What happens when we fall in love, and what goes wrong, who really knows. But when the happiness and joy of being together is no longer there, When you no longer can share your heart willingly, then it is time to let go and move on. Love is a blessing, it is a gift, not a chain that binds.
So today, while the leprechaun play, and the fiddler has us dancing, hold out your hand and clasp the friends you care about … recognize and appreciate that this is a day to be happy that they are in you life.
Another time and place – Cloud People of Peru. These figures balance on the ledge of cliff, their gaze fixed where the first rays of the rising sun will appear. They wait for a new day to dawn. The Chachapoyas were an ancient Andean people known as the Warriors of the Clouds. They inhabited the mist swathed rain-forests of what is now known as Northern Peru. These figures stand as remnants of a civilization that was wiped out some 5 hundred years ago. They look out over the vast Utcubamba Valley (sourced disclose.tv)
civilizations, come and go
nature and its natural wonders
reminders of another time
echo unspoken wisdom
and for true seekers
the stories unfold & knowledge is shared
digested and recreated
for the pilgrims of tomorrow
These Celtic figures on Boa Island, have stood the test of time… (irishmegaliths.org.uk) these stone aged megaliths show a tender embrace. Love is what transcends all the realities of today, and fine tunes our lives for tomorrow and ever after.
