Pine Grove Trail

I was so sad this morning when I visited P18 otherwise known as PIne Grove Trail. You can see the destruction of this beautiful location .. it is completely torn up. My husband and I walked the dogs there years ago.. it was such a beautiful serene area. The story I wrote about the woodland creatures was set in this location. Seeing the devastation was heart wrenching.

Times like this brings home.. nothing is forever. Forever is now.. in that moment. The trees were like cathedral walls, their canopy was magical. Now as you can see, what was, is no longer. When the crews finally do get in to start clearing away the fallen trees, the landscape will be forever changed.

Much like my world without someone I thought would be in my life “forever”.. was called away into his own “forever” – life IS. only we (me, myself and I) can make changes within our “selves”

Start today with a fresh outlook. Even though people and situations may look the same, they are constantly changing. Start each day with a fresh mind.

nature therapy

Today was a day for reflection.

yesterday I found this little fellow sunbathing
today I watched the breeze weave and dance through the tall grass
I heard the rustle of vegetation and a wee chipmunk ran out, I was walking softly she was like a herd of cattle. =^_^=

the quiet of the day, the slow walk along the path, the vegetation, the birds, the activity of the wee ones in the woods, a blessing.

peek a boo

I see you looking back at me, I was thrilled you didn’t fly away

Free yourself from being overly attached. Overthinking hinders ideas and actions.

I took today as a ME day … I spent the day visiting with nature, even drove out to Shirley’s Bay and the Firing Range, it had been a very long time, it was good to revisit, and reacquaint myself with places I haven’t been to in years, now I can plan to go again. Sometimes we do the same things over and over .. visit the same places.. there is just so much more to explore and discover. A big thank you to my friends who are encouraging and being supportive. Actually to each and everyone of you… you inspire me, I appreciate you.

Always and forever

Long Sault Parkway

Long Sault Parkway – a surprise .. this was not where we were heading, but it is where we ended up.. The Long Sault Parkway is a series of 11 island that were created from high points of land after the flooding of the St. Lawrence river during the construction of the Seaway in 1950’s. for more info. on the Long Sault Parkway visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Sault_Parkway

We drove the whole 10.1 kilometers (6.3 miles) then continued on to Preston and highway 416 to get back to Ottawa. We couldn’t have had a better day for a drive. It was hot, but walking along pathways we found that took us along the banks of the St. Lawrence, offered up wonderful breezes off the water. We saw lots of water =^_^= Stopped at more than one beach!

Being a “vacation” day, we treated ourselves to hot fries from a chip truck, they also served up the most wonderful hamburgers.. and yes, we indulged.. DELICIOUS… Dessert – salted caramel ice capp.!!!! yes.. its true !!!!!! (yes from Tim Hortons)

You’re happy, I’m happy. Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me”. Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.

Holiday Monday

there is a hush and a quiet beauty when there is a blanket of snow
now with the melt, there is new growth, the mating calls of the birds and mosquitos
yes, each season has a reason
even in Tennessee, the water’s clear and running
the mountains are teeming with wild life and adventure under clear blue skies
Tennessee chickens bathe in the heat and sunshine
hmmm where do I want to be today….
yeah, I think so…

With one thought “The world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.
