You see the fence, then the shadow.. the shadow begins to shift, but the fence post, remains in place. Where did the jacket, shirt and tie come from.?
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and everyone of your actions, can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.
Trekking through an area of land that until very recently was unknown to me, it is only some 15 minutes from me.. Yes I’ve been driving by for years, and never knew his gem existed. Took a serious world ” happening” to get me to actually get out of my car and explore the area. Also.. to give credit where it is due, it took my dog taking off on me out of the car .. and heading down one of the trails with an urgent need to explore.
I took him back there today, but on a leash. He was not impressed. The little missy, balked at going out, so .. guess what.. she got left at home. Too bad so sad, was not going to insist. When Velcro and I came home, we were both full of the most wonderful tantalizing smells. Don’t know how they communicate, but they certainly seemed to be having a good exchange of information ..
About the birds, I saw flashes of colour here and there, and birds darting from one tree to another.. but was unable to get one to light long enough for me to grab a picture. What I can tell you is that right now the woods are filled with the chirping and singing of the many species that are taking temporary accommodation in the area as they migrate through Ontario.
Life is really an adventure, some chapters are easy reading, and others are jam packed with excitement, tension, and the unknown.. Whatever chapter you are in, you have to know.. that the next page will bring something new into your awareness, it will be forever unfolding.
There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.
Good morning all, I used this picture yesterday it is how the Parks and Services composts vegetation they clear in their forest.
Often we just take for granted that our park lands, forests our there for us to enjoy and explore. The big pile left to compost over winter and into next season, reminded me of all the workers that we don’t see during the weeks and months that keep the trails free and open for us to use, 4 seasons of the year.
It is important to say thank you, and appreciate those that work behind the scenes, men and women who we don’t get to see, but work doing things that we get to appreciate every day. Last night JR (company here in Ottawa) had drivers out clearing lane ways that were hard to clear due to the heaviness of the snow and ice. built up over the last couple of days. It is a service I pay for. Yet it was not really an amount of snow that they usually come out and do. This was an accumulation over several days.
When I heard the plow in the lane way I was truly grateful and happy. By the time I got myself organized to run out and say thank you.. the plow was at the end of the street moving to the next customer on the street. That gratitude was so heartfelt. I had tried to move the snow, and it was hard, I had given up, and come inside. This was earlier in the day, to get to church I drove over the hard crusted snow. I so dislike car tracks in the snow/ice that leave ruts over time.
I will make time today, to call the company and say thank you. Appreciation feels good, and I want to pass it on. You?
The mounds you see are chip-wood, or mulch if you will. I tried to get a picture of the haze that was happening over them. If you are able to close in, I hope you will see the steam. Very interesting. When we stop to enjoy, we see “LIFE” happening.. =^_^=
Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.
Good morning, see… a lot of “things” are forbidden, not wanted in the forest. Rain is not one of them. Rain in mid January how wonderful is that!! I am aware that it will dampen things a tad for the outdoor enthusiast that would like to X cross country ski today… It is a small blimp, we are sure to have more snow in the days and weeks ahead.
At our Doll Club meeting last Wednesday, for some reason, instead of the usual “gang” of gals, we were only five, Joan, Marge, Pat, Tanya, Barb and myself. It made for a very cosy gathering, where the agenda if there was one, was put aside, and we had a wonderful time, yes talking about dolls, but about the “history” of how dolls became a favourite over the years.
A change in what usually is, is always a great time to regroup, to sit back and do something different. i.e. Right now with the rain, the temperature is milder, most roads will be wet but clear of snow and ice. As the day progresses, towards late afternoon early evening, the temperatures will drop. Then if it is still raining, you guessed it… it will turn to freezing rain and pellets.. So by gummy and golly gee.. get out and get cracking early =^_^=
Today is January 11th. Ancestors Day is at 10:a.m. I am on my way! =^_^=
Have you ever wanted to roam free in the wilds of your country, province, or state? Some of us dare to follow our dreams, and take to the woodlands despite physical limitations, if there is a will, there is a way.
Success doesn’t just happen. It is not just by coincidence that things go well. The results are based on the hard work you have put in up until that moment. Remember to be thankful and use your current success to reach the next level.
