lazy day musing

 

Spent a lazy day, painting and trying to resolve a technical problem on the PC.  Am  I the only one who asks, PC or Apple?  I have both, each has their own special features that I enjoy.  but neither satisfies me 100%

P1000693Such is the way of life.  A philosophical conversation years back, Can a husband and a lover be one and the same?  Or do you have to settle on which  qualities you want to spend the rest of your life with.

Don’t you just love the solid look of this old charmer, it has been so well looked after.  While someone wanted the top one, but has left it out in the elements, the inside of it is ruined.

This beauty was ready to roll. The dealer wasn’t open when we happened by, and there was no signage on the vehicle.  So I was left with no choice but to steal a kiss and run. =^_^=

Our Honda Ridgeline was secure in the knowledge that she can accommodate all 4 us, in a way the  two seater could never do….You may love the wicked ones, but it is the solid good drives that keeps you humming from year to year. =^_^= .

I appreciate a good-looking body, especially one that has been well looked after.  You can always tell when there is pride of ownership.  Today we take too much for granted.  Life is to enjoy, and living is about exploring and discovering. When we are internally happy, the world is a beautiful place.

PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and Others.

NH discovering

IMG_2997

Hello on Tuesday.. Was bright and sunny here today, yet where I would be up and out of the house bright and early, I was slow in getting going.  Happens, I may have mentioned that while in NH I was suddenly hit with a flash of recognition.  I didn’t want to shop, or really look around. I had enough!  I’m sorry, for those of you who have had to pick yourselves of the floor, I assure you,  it really happened

Such things do happen.  Let’s face it, a book was written about the “strange events” that have been recorded to have happened, in the hills of NH. Shrouded Memories, True Stories from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, by Floyd W. Ramsey.

Will it last, who knows.  So far, so good, I ran errands yesterday and today, and was not tempted to browse, or “look around”.. I applied myself to what needed to be done, then came back home.   I do have some of my artwork on display  at  Raglan Art Walk 2017  in SL, I have participated for the last couple of years.  I do need to send out some invitations.

What you see here, is my darling Canaille (Portuguese Water Dog) watching her human “daddy” eating a sandwich while relaxing with his “notebook” after a day of driving his “lovely” wife around touring the wilds of NH.  You can see she is trained on his every move, I think, she believes, that if she waits it out, he will drop something.  LOL he never does, but she never gives up hope.

That is what life is all about isn’t it.  We need to live each moment, focused on what we are doing, appreciating the moment.  When we are “hit” with an “idea” or “inspiration” we should listen, take heed, recognize that it is a  “personal” message”

NH fever

IMG_2952

Spring fever, the desire to be outside, to be part of the awakening vegetation.  I could almost see the grass turning a deeper shade of green right before my eyes,

IMG_2944

I probably passed this drain many many times, last year, but this year, Wow, it popped up, and mesmerized me with its geometric design.

IMG_2950

Of course I’ve seen the brilliant yellow early flower of the forsythia bush, but in NH it was even brighter and more beautiful against the green of its companion Juniper or was it a Yew.  Who cares, it was a delight.

AND really have you ever seen a better piece of art.  Made in the good ole USA. =^_^=

Art is everywhere.                Discovering in NH (New Hampshire )!!   what a great way to spend leisure time.

NH moment

P1000717 (1)

New Hampshire on an early morning walk.  It is May, I’m taking my time enjoying the fresh morning air, not thinking about anything else but the moment.

P1000716

Only now am  getting to see some of the pictures I took during our time away. A holiday is time for me to wander, some pictures were taken with my Lumix, others with my iPhone.  Slowly I will get to them, for tonight, I wanted to drop in and say hi… I’ve missed you all.  It wasn’t till we were on our way back today that I gave in and bought an Acer Notebook, sorry to all you Apple peeps, I simply can’t work away on an iPad like I can a Windows/PC…

P1000718 (1)

You won’t see a lot of sunshine, just a lot of fresh mountain air, and the fresh new buds of new sprouts. When the windows were open we could hear the crystal clear water cascading down the mountain side through the gorge.  Looking out from out two side windows, all we saw was the drop down to the forest floor.  Already the bears have started to stir, one guest who stayed in one of the back “cabin/rooms” saw a bear wandering in the wooded area, in back of the Inn a few days before we arrived.  We were advised not to let our dogs off leash or unattended.

P1000710

We did drive down one day into the southern part of NH, where the bigger cities are, we didn’t stay long, a few hours. that was all we needed before we high tailed it back up north into the National Forest area, where we were staying,  Holidays are never long enough, but, we know we will go back, and really, I missed being home, and chatting with you.  Go figure. I love my time with you.  Makes me feel good.  Now I’ll be able to catch up on what you all have been doing.

It is late in the day, but to all the Mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day.

meet Ringo

Ringo dot 2 5.6.17

Sometimes we have to do what we want .. no matter what.  Ringo decided he was going to come to visit.   I saw him before he arrived, only I had my own ideas, but his desire to be present over ruled my half-baked idea.

That is what happens in life, we may want something, we have it in our mind, just what we want or what we need to do to achieve or get to our goal,  However along the way, it just didn’t or doesn’t work out that way.  You followed the steps, you went forward the way you thought you should, and when you got to the end.. It just wasn’t the same.  Not that it was a negative or simply not to your liking, it just wasn’t what you had, had in mind.

As an artist/writer, or other creative soul, it is an experience that happens to us often enough.  We are good at adapting, truth be told, we kind of like the hiccups along the way,  It allows for opportunities to experiment and usually go beyond what we have grown comfortable with.

dragon, start of.. 4.30.17

Once upon a time a dragon came to visit.  “Oh” said I, ” what pretty colours you are! ”

“hmmmp” he said, “I’m just passing through”

So, I took a picture of him and posted him on Instagram, I went about my day and didn’t think much more about him.  I was having a “dragon” kind of day, and really wasn’t that interested in what he had to say.

The next day, I was busy with activities that I couldn’t put away.  Today was the day, so I had to be present and social in a “family” kind of way.  By mid day, after guests were gone and I was now back home on my own.  All I could think of was that I wanted to pray.  It was pouring rain, the clouds were bleak and gray, but nothing was going to stand in my way. The quiet, tranquility of the church, the peace of love and community, was drawing me, like a moth to a flame.

Silently I prayed, my words and thoughts, came, they flowed, they flew into the air, the heaviness, the pain, slowly drained away.  PL Precept # 11  Always be with God.

PL Precept # 5  One’s Self is Lost by being Emotional

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions,

When I came home, the dragon looked at me and winked.  The brat I thought.  I reached out and with   steady hand, and knowing actions, his friends came to light.

happyland 5.2.17

Just like that… the dragon smiled, his friends pranced and I was smitten with their charm.  My grin went from ear to ear… life is good when we believe and trust in God
