Chop Suey Tuesday

With the goings on in the world today, I’m never sure what will greet me when I first listen to the news after a lovely night of sleep.

I first wrote this little poem back in the fall of 2007, I made a few changes, to share it with you now…. have fun, let your imagination flow.

How eerie the night

when everyone looks for a fright

carved pumpkin heads

leer with evil delight

their eyes bleary and red

their lopsided grin

sends a chill from within

children cheer with delight

when ghosts go bump in the night

So tuck yourself in

don’t let the news of the day,

scare your good sense away.

Once upon a time, October came once a year

Now it seems, every day is one the speaks of fear.

Really, let’s think on this, do we want to live this way

I pray each day, that our friendships

will flow and grow

till each and every one of us

in reaching out, will overtake

the negativity spread by “others”

and put pumpkins back on the table

 in tasty pies that we will gladly share

with everyone, for they will be filled with

 thanksgiving, love. friendship and appreciation,

stock ingredients of  our every day.

Blessings.

Dolls and life

3 friends, Vanilla,ChenMay,Kit

Once upon a time.  Remember the stories we were read when we were children. I don’t recall too many of them now, but I do seem to recall they all had happy endings.  Lately I’ve been introduced to the new dolls that are on the market, perhaps I shouldn’t say new, because they have been around, they are “new” to me.

It has been a delight to discover that there are many different cultures represented in the choices, however one does have to search them out.  I found one  the other day that had been discarded, she was no longer “perfect”

Someone, had given her a very bad haircut, and she had lost patches of her hair.  It was a sad face that looked back at me when I found her in the store.  She came home for a spa day, the next day I took her in and the kind lady pierced her ears for me.  I had thought to take her to the doll club meeting earlier this week.  She was very happy with her new look, unfortunately it didn’t work out that she was able to accompany me to the meeting, but I have promised her an outing soon.,

sitting pretty with her doggie 6.11.17At the doll club meeting, I learned a lot about some of the work that is being done with dolls, especially in health care.  Dolls are brought in to visit Alzheimer patients, with heart warming results.  There was also talk about organizing a tea party for young girls and boys, who would like to  revisit a social custom that many no longer share or participate in.

I myself learned that my new “young lady” was the right “doll” to introduce to others, the fact that we all go through different “phases” in our lives, and sometimes, we are left with visible signs of our “trauma”.. that doesn’t change who we are, we are still beautiful in our own unique way. And more often than naught, we are a better, and stronger person for the  challenges we faced and overcame.

I see dolls in a totally different way now as an adult.  I am amazed at how dolls have changed (varieties) over the years, yet, now as always, they still infect us with a love that transcends age.

Share a hug today.  Reintroduce a doll into your life =^_^=

Lo-Mein Wednesday

aimer sans mesure 3

Good Day! Woke up this morning, and for some unknown reason, thought I’d go for a walk. Not just any walk, but to one of the main streets in the area, and from there I thought to hoof it up to another main street, and come back that way to one of our bigger shopping centers.  Have I been walking these days, nooooooooo but I used to walk these little hikes without a second thought.  Fortunately my brain wasn’t completely out in left field, I did make arrangements with Hubby to be on standby.

Walking, means you get to take different side streets and meander through the various little communities instead of skirting them by driving along streets where the buses travel.  You see the little corner stores, and the well tended lots, even little parks you didn’t know where there.

The church on the Montreal Road, I pass numerous times,  (in the truck) but, even thought I see the sign, I don’t usually get to really read it.. that would be a distraction, I just know there is a sign there.  Today, on foot, I was able to stop and read the message. It is a good one isn’t it.  For those of you who don’t read French, it says, Forgive and Love unconditionally.

We must learn to forgive not only others, but ourselves if there is to be peace on earth.  We really need to practice everyday, goodwill to one and all.

McDonalds 5.31.17My reward for talking myself out for a walk, a cold, ice cold, black coffee, with lots of ice. Oh Yum.  I called Hubby to pick me up, while I was half way on my little mini “trek”  For a first time out this year, I’m happy.

Lunch, kale salad and skinless salmon. Made at home, no store dressing. Just lite mayo.

Kale salmon salad

Life is good isn’t it.

Wordless Wednesday -PWD -Porti

 

Portuguese Water dog, also known as Porti, or PWD, prayer garden 4.18.12 026

This is our current Porti, she is now a senior, and as spoiled as ever.  Hard to get her eye action, but she is and will always be a charmer.  The breeder didn’t name her Canaille without reason,  I tried to find her pictures from the days she was winning ribbons, but they elude me.

Thanks for asking to see more of Canaille, she is the apple of my eye.. my one and only… =^_^=   .. and of course… I am smitten.

Blessings…  Have a wonderful week.  Imagine, we are almost through the week.  In Canada this will be a long week-end coming up.  This is the time when gardeners get serious.  Really serious.

Thursday Doors 4.20.17

P1000339

Another time, another place

lazy days, quieter times

where television news didn’t rule the day

where children played in innocence

in country lanes or on tree-lined streets

off the towns central core

of country store, drugstore, and maybe a diner or two

with a small town community center

and of course the church

where friends and neighbours

gather Sundays to pray.

Today on Thursday Doors I searched for this picture, that I might have shown you before.  It inspired me then, and it does now.. because my friend, I want to slow down, we are not slowing down before we act.  We are seeing this in the upheaval in the world around us.
We celebrate the past, and the soldiers who died for a cause.  Yet on the next page is a story of aggression and violence.

People move to the country to get away from “city” living, and then they want the “city” comforts to be built around them,  Where once the quiet town enjoy a peaceful surround.  They discover that where once the dairy farm had been, a big box store was going in.  The lovely little glen and babbling brook that ran behind the farmer’s home, was being paved over for a parking lot

Doors are opportunities. They open to new discoveries, or close to hide or forget the past. Doors are symbolic, doors are not a decoration, they serve a purpose.  This door, to me, is symbolic of another time, a reminder that yes, we can go forward, and we can progress, but look how well maintained this door is.  It may be plain, but it serves, and it is respected, someone has lovingly kept this building maintained.

Let us look after our selves, we do maintenance on our cars and homes regularly  to keep them tip top.   It is time to make sure that we maintain balance in our lives too. Spiritual healing, is imperative, put love back in our lives, not lust, but LOVE
