I love this time of year, especially the coming months.  Those of you who follow along, know of my utterly obsessive interest in doing “October” art forms.  I have begun again, I see it sneaking into my various “art” projects.

What has also claimed some of my attention, is fall allergies… We are really not anywhere near fall season, but the weather has been blowing up the country harvests and mites.. The air must be full of something that is not sitting well with my “system”.

Such is life.  The stock pile of tissue boxes will now start to diminish. and the sinus and allergy pills will come out of hiding to be front and centre in my activity areas.

I have long accepted that having seasonal allergies is part of my life experience. Acceptance, makes it easier to do what needs doing, so that I sail through the season with not too many changes to daily life.

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.

Thursday doors

A hot dry day, finally with Piglet with me in the car, I could park, and walk in off the road to take pictures.  This little treasure had caught my eye some time ago, but it was never a good time to park off to the side of the busy roadway, and walk over to where this little house is.

The lot is big enough and shows signs of having had two outdoor  “toilets” off to one side. There is also a bigger building, commercial from how it appears. but of course, I only had eyes for the two story charmer.  The top has been removed from the ground floor, and placed as you see them.  The small doorway is between the building, and has lost its door.

Someone at some time, had, intentions for this little “cottage”  It would have been bright and welcoming inside with all those windows.  I was surprised that the  remains did not have a musty smell.  The wood was dry and still had the smell that wood gets when it has been baking in the sun.

Rust has been working on the metal for some time.  Building its many layers producing wonderful displays as only rust can.  It is not very everyone, but textured materials, remnants of another time, another life, for me are inspiring.

Hope you have enjoyed this little visit to a place  on an old road that once was the main  highway to the city of Montreal, in the province of Quebec.

Finally she gets to rest, and the boys want to play.  Will she give in, or chase them away? Choices, there is no getting away, they are part of every day!

The greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions and not upon our circumstances – Martha Washington.

PL calendar day 26      If you face a situation head on, a path will open up

No matter how hard the situation is, face it head on.  If you approach it seriously you will be able to find a way to break through.

Happy Friday everyone, smile at passers by they will wonder if you are alright, but it sure will feel good. Some will even smile back.  Smile, you are  a winner!!! just for being YOU.

Thursday doors

Good Morning, these are the doors I found yesterday in my travels. No concrete cement sidewalks, no asphalt driveways, open space and  blue skies were the order of the day.

PL Calendar day 25 –   Pay Careful Attention without Overly Straining yourself or Taking things too lightly

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that will help you to better express yourself.

windows

flowers at TD bells corners

Windows, so important in our daily lives.  Often neglected, still, they reflect and offer up a wonderful array of visual delights.  I hoped the light wouldn’t change before I captured the beautiful yellow flowers.  I was granted my wish.

I know I am not alone in my joy in the simplicity of simply enjoying the creativity in the world that surrounds me.

What have you seen out of your window recently that had a WOW factor.

Hope your week-end is full of discoveries, you are in my thoughts, always and forever.

PL Calendar day 14 – Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you.
