Trees reaching towards the sky, as far as the eye can see,

lost in the bush, no not me, but lost in the moment, yes

I travel the distance to visit the open skies and the wild abandon of the tall-growing trees

In any direction I head, I know that just around the bend, I will find a crop of trees

Yesterday with the azure skies and dazzling sunshine, it was anyone’s guess just where my day would lead, without a care, I let my spirit roam.  I soon found myself on a highway headed south-west.  Crossing the 416 I knew I would stop for food in Kemptville.  Taking myself out is always a surprise.  A&W and fries, and lots of cold water. yum.

Happy is different for everyone.  Find yours today.  Every day is a new opportunity to find and express, appreciation, and gratitude for the “happy” in our lives.

Did I spot something in the field?  No, I caught the moment.  For me it was joyful.

PL Calendar, day 16   Don’t hold anything back; give it your all

Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy. Then, things will develop in a new direction.

I love my life, and all the goodness that surrounds me.  You are a part of this goodness, when you share with me, I appreciate the time you took to visit my blog, and thrilled to bits when you drop in and say hi, or express your views.  Life is good when we appreciate those around us.  Life is good when we love unconditionally.

off route 43

Wednesday

alexandria 8.4.eTravel down an old country road on a lazy afternoon just two old friends, out for a drive. A country lass and an urban miss.  The old hydro lines are what caught my eye.  We stopped so I could get a shot.  We were not that far off the beaten track, yet, the fields of green, and the old lines, gave me a feeling of another time and place,.

Best of all I was with someone who had grown up in the country, and loved the fields of crops and the newly cut hay just as much as I did.  We would sigh with contentment when we passed peaceful gathering of cows enjoying the shade of sprawling trees  sheltered by outcrops of large boulders and rocks.

Too often I am traveling down a major highway or road to a destination, this was a just because drive.  No deadline, no specific time frame, just a drive, with a stop for lunch at a marina along the way. talking was optional.

alexandrria 8,4,18Be kind to yourself.  Make time for you.  Lazy summer days are few and far between when we live a busy lifestyle.

That day we had mostly sunshine, but the rain did fall, we got the black rolling clouds, and vivid display of lightning.  Made our day complete.  Have you ever smelled the lush green meadows after a rainfall?  Experienced the return of the sun and clear blue skies after an explosive down pour.  the change in temperatures during all this variety of weather.  Mother Nature works her magic in very special ways.

Get out and enjoy the day, make today a special day.

birthdays =^_^=

hwy 43 9.16.17b

LOL.. no getting away from you is there. You are all so super fantastic.. No way you gonna let me forget it is my birthday. I wasn’t running away from it, really I wasn’t. I woke up and found that I’d lots of visits overnight. It was actually really pleasant to wake up and see that so many of you had dropped in.

hwy 43 9.16.17e

So many of you have traveled through the years with me, always there with your smiles and friendships.  How many times have I hollered out.. HELP  I’m stuck… it could be late in the night for you, and mid afternoon for me.. Always, if you are around, help is to be had.   I am so truly blessed.

hwy 43 Alexandria 9.16.17b

The colours of fall have started to appear as you see in one of the pictures.  Friends, are blessings I believe that. Even tho’ with the technology today (internet) we are able to reach out almost anytime… We don’t always get the chance, or think to do it, our day to day passes by on us too quickly.

Like the seasons, I am changing, my life takes new directions, doors open that I wasn’t expecting, opportunities that I hadn’t expected, drop in, and like nature, I accept and find creative ways to deal with the landscapes before me.

Hwy 43 Alexandria 9.16.17d

Always precious friends, I know that along the shorelines of my life, a friend is there.  Thank you .. thank you, thank you…. each one of you helps me, live a life that is more complete, because you share this world with me.

Another year to mark off on the calendar…  sigh… means I’m wiser, yes!

I sit high when driving, we have a truck.  I as struck by the vegetation and rooftops as I travelled how 43, going east.

hwy 43 9.16.17c

It was a beautiful day as you can see.  The miles slipped silently by as I rode along taking in the views.  It was a “me” day.  A day to allow my thoughts to come and go, my only objective to watch the road, and take in the beauty around me.

hwy 43 9.16.17a

Farmland as far as the eye could see.  Small villages, and towns, expanse of fields waiting for harvest.  Rural Ontario. (250km)  Lots of time to entertain my thoughts.

PL Precept # 15  All is a Mirror    –  I sought tranquility and peaceful surrounding.  The Universe granted my wish.  I enjoyed conversation and friendship along the way, then back in the truck  as I continued on my way………….. the steady hum of the tires and visual delights as Nature provided the beginning colours of her  fall palette.

Just before the final stretch, I stopped for fresh produce and discovered a new fruit.  Ground cherries.  physalis longifolia

Enjoy each new day, give thanks for the opportunities that come your way.  Life is good.

ground cherries

A day spent with and in Nature, alone, in meditation and quiet

is a special day indeed!

sharing

montfort

This was taken on the last day at the Montfort before hubby was transferred to a larger hospital in the city.  Isn’t this just the most welcoming space.

My nephew took this other one a while back, for me it give me the same sense of tranquility as the one I took the other day when leaving the Montfort.

Whatever, or where you find your “calm” today…. enjoy it.
