walking in the rain WET

I have walked in the rain before, but this time I got soaked. REALLY soaked, I now know what it is like to be soaking wet. I was able to protect the camera with a doggie poop bag. but the rest of me even though I had a lite rain jacket on, hat and my hood over the hat.. got wet right through. I marvel at how wonderful it was, the sound of the rain falling hard at times, and then letting up, but not stopping… even where a tall tree would in the past have given some shade, there was no reprieve from the falling rain drops.

There was no going back I had already started on the boardwalk, (it is a 1 way) and if I am to be honest with myself, I wanted the experience, the young families I’d met on my way down to the walkway, would be safe and snug in their cars by now.. I basically had the place to myself. The rain was hard enough, there were no birds singing or chattering in the trees, and none of the small animals were scurrying looking for food. Everyone had taken cover. The two wild turkeys that I met earlier, that sauntered down the middle of the road, causing me to actually stop so that they could get ahead of me.. then just coast along behind them, were likely on their way home before the rain.. and they too were likely sheltered somewhere.

Only the human was out =^_^= strolling along the now very wet boardwalk. The wooden planks glistened with the water, the drops danced off the boards and rolled along to the edges or pooled in the small crevices and cracks.

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

Will there be consequences.. likely, I was cold by the time I got home and was able to get out of the wet clothes. Even a hot shower didn’t take the chills away. I did make myself a warm lunch, and now will go wrap myself in a warm fleece blanket. LOL when I removed all the items from the many pockets of my hiking gear, guess what I found.. a plastic poncho still in its brand new sealed bag.

I’ll leave you with a photo of my latest post card.

take care, stay safe… c ya soon.

Jazz man

music .. that slow sensuous melody you can’t escape from,

that soulful sound of the saxophone with notes that reach inside to fill you from the inside out.

sometimes I just want to listen to music, and sometimes I want to hear the instrument, not words…

Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing, be creative and do things to improve your day,

snow Saturday

outside my bedroom window at 7:30 a.m YES it is still snowing.
guess my little Garden spirit will be smoothened under the snow. (see PS below)

What is “Normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It is important to understand others’ feelings.

Value those who are nearest to you. It is especially easy to overlook how wonderful your spouse or other family members really are. Always remember to respect and value one another.

Wordless Wednesday

Sometimes words get in the way, too many different understandings. Q

Always be cheerful, happy and good humored. When you make effort to be cheerful and happy, you will naturally begin to feel that way.

August 7

shaded, barely seen, you are always there – a friend who never pushes to be heard, or arrives in the moment just for the occasions. you are always present in the background, content to be in my world, an ear to listen, a shoulder to lean on, yes… all those things.. but mostly, you are you.. a gentle whisper of strength when I need it most. Q

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of “now”. Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

The doodle cards are 4 x 6 =^_^=

this and that

remember my MC statement
this is the final results I did two pieces.

Mixed media is one of my favourite pastimes. In this instance, I was ridding myself of the MC statement, you saw in the earlier post, the way I pulled it apart (no scissors) and using gel medium and gesso, I had fun pasting it to the backing card stock.

The other ingredients were Distress inks, and the Distress Oxide sprays. Acrylic paint (tube) and bottles. misc. brushes, and spatulas. The trick is to have fun, to just let your intuition take over.

For details here and there, used Versafine ink (black) and stamps I like to play around with. I found a bottle of Liquitex iridescent medium and brushed that here and there too. I didn’t use my photo studio box to take the snaps .. but you get the idea. I don’t think anyone will be able to read my bank statement. =^_^=

Let me say goodnight by showing you a darling picture of two of the cutest whippets.

baby Fierce and his mama Pearl

Doesn’t it just make you go “awwwww” Fierce is the lucky puppy that got to stay with the breeders. My friends are amazing with their dogs, both of mine are from them… Sorry but their darlings are spoken for, for I forget now how many years. But should you want more information you can check their web page, http://www/freckashpeng.com

It has been a long productive day. After a prayer of gratitude for today, I am off to slumber-land. May your dreams and sleep be filled with peaceful journeys, that will have you waking up fresh and ready for the new day.

Friday 13th

Sometimes the mind travels through space. Stopping in places you had forgotten you knew. Nothing unpleasant, just moments of fog being replaced with brilliant blue skies. Took one of my “free” drives today, no place special, no where to be, just the need to drive. Picked up a willing co-pilot, and off we went.

Driving towards the Quebec border, on a secondary highway, it was pouring rain, overcast skies, with only periods of lighter rain, When the rain slowed down, the sky would get somewhat brighter and the wet bark of the trees could be seen glistening, giving us sculptures reaching for the heavens.

Just past Hawksbury, we turned the car around and headed west, back towards the city. Suddenly the rain stopped, and the skies began to clear. The transformation was startling vivid. Baby blue skies, fluffy white clouds, it became a totally different day.

2 days in one. Interesting. The winds picked up.. it seems that I got home before the mega winds. I can hear them now.. hard and violent against the house.

It was a range of weather today… like emotions, the weather can be calm, restless, volatile, warm and welcoming, or like today… a roller coaster of some of everything.

When you think “I’ve got it,” Think again. It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.
