what to do?

memory candle for Brian

What to do when your day starts with a “bang” (unpleasant one) and then more or less continues on in similar fashion.  During the 10 a.m service today, (Day of Peace) I found myself crying thinking of what happened early before I got to the church.

The dog got his tail chopped off by a closing door.  My precious baby.. yelped,  then I saw the piece of tail on the floor and the trail of blood as he escaped into the house.  Such misery, such helplessness.. I could only react. Meanwhile his sister who is white, was now looking like a red dalmatian and blood was everywhere, on me and on the carpets. Didn’t matter all I wanted to do was pick him up and hold him to me… of course that did wonders for my outfit.  When I finally got to church, I realized that I still had blood on me, and my clothes.  What a sight.

Fortunately the vet made a house call.  I was so relieved.  We are all resting comfortably,  the human will be taking to her bed very early. Oh dear, just remembered have to check on the laundry.  Used cold water. back.. looks like all the stains came out. ahh sigh.

PL Calendar, day 2    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.

During all of today’s “activities”, I picked up the memory candle from the Funeral home, isn’t it pretty, there is a small compartment that is sealed under it.  During the service, the candle is lit.  I had never seen these before.  I am comforted that it is home with me now.

Life is what it is.  I need to slow down, and let my journey set the pace for peaceful healing.

oh no!

Barbies 2.11.18Always in for a challenge.  I picked up two Barbies today, one had articulating arms the other articulating legs.  I wanted the one doll to have the articulating limbs.

Barbies c 2.11.18Did I know what I was doing?  The simple answer is ..No..

Hmmm. thought to find something on YouTube.  It could be there but so far, I have not found what I am looking for.  Meanwhile, I now have two dismembered dolls.  I did enjoy the exercise.  However, I will have to put the parts away now till I find out what I need to do, from what I have seen so far, the gals who show restoration of Barbie type dolls, simply switch heads..

But then, they still have a doll that doesn’t articulate the way I want.. you get either the arms or the legs.  Either or.  I’ll just have to do some more research.  Anyone out there, rebuilt a Barbie type doll?

I think that I am left with pieces that may not be re-useable. tsk tsk tsk.

If you never try something, you will never learn. Life is about learning, I will keep you posted.  Tomorrow will be a brand new day.  Here is wishing you all a smashing invigorating start to a new week.  Keep it all together. =^_^=  “rock on”

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a Turning Point

Chop Suey Tuesday 6.28

Sometimes we want to rest

we do our best to make the time

only you find yourself

being watched with expectation

IMG_1689

just to make sure you understand

that your taking a break, is NOT

what you should be doing

I did my best to ignore the pair

however their persistence

was not to be ignored

dog noses are very cold

being stared at is not really

a soothing lullaby

beaver maple leaf_edited-2

all is not lost

I did find two cars for my

“play car” collection =^_^=

I started a card

the beaver has a chewed ear,

I did find two maple leaves

then suffered a kind of writer’s block

so except for hello

that’s it for the day

my Mother is 95, legally blind  and hard of hearing

yet here she is doing what she does best,

living each day, getting the best out of whatever opportunity

comes her way

In this case she is looking at a smart phone to catch up

on recent pictures.

my sister who is trying to catch a glimpse is now in Iceland

where she will be surrounded by

happy people, celebrating the win today against England (soccer)

 here .. my addiction…

cold, very cold, ice coffee with a side glass

of ice water..

the perfect mix.

all this to say

life is good everyday

someone sent me a smile today

let me share it with you

saying

take your pick

the caption on this one was… take your pick…

PL # 15.  All is a mirror

When we are calm we reflect that quiet serenity

I love this picture, like, WoW, these mountain goats are climbing a near vertical wall.  I found it on a site, that just now when I went back to reference it again, the page was gone, or not available to me.  We speak of reflection, perception, to the photographer who took this picture, I say kuddos for your patience and ability to do this capture.  My musing is, in Nature, the animal does what is instinctively right, …. need to get to point X,  hmmm what is the best way, oh yes, this way, and simply goes about doing it.

The mind, I can speak for mine  will often prevent me from doing something, because I think about it too much.

 

PL Precept #1 – Life is Art

Every day, every waking moment, is a new beginning.

Spanish moss draped like a golden chandelier, some one with a creative mind and vision, got the idea, “saw it” “acted on it” et voila!

PL Precept #19 – Begin once you Perceive

Love is not an emotion that can come and go

if you truly love, it is forever

love is God

you / me

Open Up

Opportunities don’t always come and knock on the door,                                        landscape 3

Usually, they present themselves as a challenge.

Today was the church garage sale, we do one, once and  sometimes twice a year

As I watched people arrive, park and saunter over to the tables, I wished I had ..  more time to say Hello, Hi!, So nice that you could drop by…..

But of course, there was little time for anything but to keep putting stuff out and answering the many questions being asked by the eager early arrivals.

Church staff were kept busy, putting stuff out, or helping with things being purchased.  There was a steady stream of new arrivals.
here are several reasons our church does a garage sale, and yes it is to raise    money for the church… but it is also to meet the many people who drop in to       visit us  each year, and to get acquainted with them

What I realized today, was that the opportunity was there, but the reality was, we were not staffed to properly achieve the part about.. getting reacquainted  having time to actually visit and say hello to the visitor who dropped in.

So… did we really accomplish what we set out to do?  The opening our doors to say Hello and  meet new people… That was/is an important part of our intended goal.  Sometimes even when we are proactive, it isn’t till we actually play out the steps that we have scheduled and planned, that we are able to see the discrepancies.

hmmm time to rethink, how to “open up”
