PL calendar day 16 Be creative in your efforts
If something is not going well, take a step back and look at how you are tackling the problem. There is sure to be something you can improve on.

Blessings all .. may your week blossom as the days progress.
Good morning everyone, bom dia..
I was out of the city most of the week, travelling the roads…Gone are the fields of green, I was met with beautiful skies, that reflected the cooler temperatures, and the fields of white. Interesting how the sky actually looks bluer and the clouds whiter when below is a blanket of crystal white snow.
I love that the world is constantly providing us with an abundance of new vistas, opportunities and challenges. Letting go of what was, is an ongoing process of growth and new experiences.
PL calendar day 24 – Listen and See with careful attention and accept each other
Focus your “eyes” and “ears” towards the expression of others without any pre conceived notions. Then you will be able to see their true intentions.
Life is what we make of it. The choices are always ours.
Every new day is a blessing, each exchange with a friend, is a double blessing, for often through the eyes of our friends, we see a part of ourselves. Q
Meet the Lego Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts Mini figures, this set can be purchased retail. In it you get the complete set of 22 Factory sealed character pieces. If you decide not to invest in the whole set, and try your luck at purchasing individually, then you have to take your chances and purchase a single pack, for 3.99 and hope you get the hero that you want. Otherwise you keep trying. I believe that the set in Canadian dollars is about 180$ give or take.
The figures are rather cute, the collector that I am thought, I want one. I liked the figure third from the left, front row. My first bag, I got Harry himself along with his owl, my second try I got #11 (yes they are numbered,) the character with the red hair and green uniform holding a tea cup. 2nd row, to the right of the other figure I would like, the one with the pointed ears.
My next bag I tore open to find that I got #6, he is standing behind the one I want, in the back row with the green plant. So far three tries, and each one is 3.99 with tax. Do you see where I am going with this. By the time I am done, trying to get the two or three that I want, I will likely end up paying for the cost of the full set. but then what do I do with the other figures?
They are darn cute, I see the attraction, my reality is, with arthritic fingers, and often diabetic numbness that visits these same fingers…. I ask myself if this is a collection that I really really want to start playing with. Of course the one option is that I find others who would want to trade. LOL.. somehow I think that the age group I usually “play” with, won’t have any interest in mini Lego figures.
Oh!!! I was smitten by the dragon and figures in Lego #75951 (Fantastic Beasts) why? One figure looks like a Chinese magistrate, and the other is a an older character who looks dignified with his white hair. Grindelwald’s Escape, it is 132 pieces, suggested for ages 7-14. Take the hyphen away and turn the numbers around, maybe…… the characters are Gellert Grindelwald, and the other is Seraphina Picquery I did get it, how long will it take for me to put 132 small pieces together. It is anyone’s guess. =^_^= will I try?
Some people never grow up, I could be one of them. However, where my mind might be willing to explore the opportunities, The body will often give me hints on the realities of actually following through.
Day 2 of the PL Calendar Be Forever Young and seek new challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever changing world.
PL Precept #2 To live is to express One’s self
To my many Lego adult friends who are Lego buffs, ever think you would see the day???
This door is more welcoming during the summer months, when there are blossoms blooming to invite you to enjoy the view.
These days I feel like a door. I stand ready, each day a new “visitor” comes to call, today the stove called. It blew a gasket, sending smoke and fumes into the air. The fire alarms chimed in to really add to the excitement.
The dogs and I just looked at one another. I ran for the stove, turned it off, opened the door, got the fans going, and and and.
New stove will be delivered next week. Interesting menu if you care to stop on by. My house is the one with the happy weeds, the new weed whacker won’t start. No wonder the house with the roses is smiling … it knows there is no competition this year.
Don’t worry, I’m as happy as can be. I got to post a door this Thursday. Yipeee… For more doors, check out Norm 2,0 Thursday doors
thank goodness I am a positive person. I’ve had to deal with a cracked coffee maker, a burnt out toaster, a new weed wacker that is being finicky, and a stove that said I quit. Good for me. I get all new toys.
Sometimes we open a door, and we are hit with an unexpected view. One we had no control over, but we’re now faced with the “What the ?!?!?!”
The camera of course was the first thought, take pictures, details, catch it before it is touched or anyone comes. Then talk to the workers, who are pretending not to be aware of your actions.
Keep calm, ask for an explanation. PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.
Listen with intent. Pay careful attention to what is said. Appreciate, and remember to say Thank YOU.
Then return to your office, make notes, and then # 1. call the city, #2 call the owner of the property who the workers are working with. Being polite, and asking for answers and suggestions to the problem will usually inspire others to be helpful.
PL Precept #5 One’s self is lost by being emotional
Sincerity, faith and trust … are important ingredients to a life that is “balanced”
I’m not saying it is always easy, but they become part of your daily responses to opportunities when they are practiced on a regular basis.
Blessings of the day to each and everyone of you. May much happiness shine on you day from morning to night.
PL 2 (calendar) The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world. BE FOREVER YOUNG AND SEEK NEW CHALLENGES.
Focus, don’t have an Oops day….
cartoon found on Pintrest
Shadows cast their imprint on the forest floor, not looking up, I wanted to read the storyline that played out on the fallen pines and organic debris that carpeted the way
autumn sun was high in the sky, so that the filtered light cast beautifully defined lines against the rusted shades of brown and grays that lay textured, the perfect foil for the images being projected for our viewing.
PL Precept #1 Life is Art.
How we creatively interact with the challenges and opportunities that come our way, if we were to see them only visually, it would be like the shadows shown above. dynamic and static meeting as ONE.

Stop Hesitating – Abandone la actitud reservada y vacilante –
When we travel, we pack up our suitcases with our destination in mind. When we are being moved because we are at a stage in life where we need more care than can be had if we stay on our own.
Packing to go away, I never know just what I’ll need, so I take some of this and two pairs of jeans, etc. Especially if we are to travel in our own vehicle, we can take more, “just in case”
But if someone else is packing for you, you find yourself watching, listening to the activity around you. I am the person packing, the person watching and listening was my Mother who will be 96 on May 1st. There was no hesitation on my part, I needed only to know what it was she wanted with her. BUT my Mother who has travelled the world, toured China, walked the cities of Greece, bought opals in Australia,always independent and full of curiosity to see where she would visit next, now knows her destination will be to a health care facility miles away from her home city. Temporary, never-the-less I know it is a trip she would rather not make, wanted very little.
My Mother has always been strong and stoic, whatever challenges the Universe sent her way, she dealt with it. She didn’t dwell on how, she simply did what was necessary to get what she wanted done.
Her attitude is.. bring it on, I’ll deal with it. She never hesitated to live her life, so while we her daughters, do our best to make it happen in a way that is best for her. I believe that the Universe will watch over her. The most important thing in life that she will need, won’t need to be packed, because God has blessed her with the Divine presence that lives within her.
