It is only natural that YOU are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. that’s what makes life interesting.

I’ve explained to Hermit (doll in last post) that she is who she is, and not everyone will find her to their liking. She understands, at least she says she does, but a friend noted, she looked sad. So I took another look, I took a good look and sought to see the sadness. But it didn’t come, for when I look at her, I feel joy, and giddy sense of “wow, you really rock” She wears her years of experiences, lost love, forgotten friendships, and numerous disappointments for all to see. She can’t help it, she was made this way. I didn’t try to change her, I simply gave her breaks, bruises and scars the recognition they deserved.
We have all felt pain, longing, sadness, we’ve loved, we’ve cried, and the disappointments have taken their toll. Yet, the reality is they have actually made us stronger and more beautiful/handsome., then ever. For in living life, we learn more about our SELVES.. The me, in I.
Chinese New Year (Rat) is January 25th. In China this celebration of “family” and LIFE… goes on for weeks, when able to, everyone that can, heads home. To you my friends, I wish you all, Long life… prosperity and Good health.. YOU are all part of my family.
I should have taken a before picture. But… I don’t think I did. She is long, lean and beautiful in her half skeletal form.. maybe at a later date, I will polish her bones that are protruding. For now.. I’m happy to let her rest and bask in the sunlight that streams in from the window on sunny days.
Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself, your true beauty will shine through.

the blank BJD comes from China. I do the makeover.
Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things The outcome is in your hands.

It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk or running for office.
Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.
It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.
Not picture perfect, but there you have it. Leon has his rights. He knows when it is his time to chill, and he takes it.
It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.
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! =^_^=
