How wild does their garden grow
wow I don’t know said Mr Crow
For years now I come to explore
each passing year brings new colour in the rows
see the roses are in full bloom right now
& cherries are forming on the trees
come back in a week or two
the Saskatoon berries will be a feast
bring friends, this garden is here for us
nice meeting you Mr Crow,
my name is Jay
in a flash of blue he was off
cawing as he flew
I’ll be back to see you soon
Rosco chuckled as he flew higher up the tree
life is good when
friends drop in showing appreciation and enjoy their visit
he liked being called Mr. Crow
Mr. indeed, and he chuckled some more
could he be getting old
in full voice, he cawed and called out
Happy Sunday everyone!
PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things
I tried, I wanted to
I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,
pristine white, blank pages,
for days I even practiced the different styles of lettering
anticipation high, time to doodle and write.
Yet when I got to where we were going,
Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering
The pads of blank pages, came home empty.
It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries, a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

Interesting door, the little house was nestled on the main street of a small town in Ontario. It begged notice. I was intrigued with the half seen figure that could be seen from the road. A charmer on an otherwise ordinary street.

Wear a smile today, share happiness and laughter with friends.
I will tell you no lies…
instead of being weed free
this year, this garden patch was left to be
what a surprise to walk by and find
that the fall colour
and nature’s design
presented such a pretty sight
for my eyes
truth be told
I got bold
and asked that I be given a sign
on what to have for supper
what I was given
was a package of frozen clams
sigh, not really what I had in mind
but I did ask
so here it is
clam, fresh okra on a bed
of fresh Japanese noodles
I’m off to partake
of the bounty on my plate
see what happens
when left on my own
no questions asked
the mix and match
that rolls around
in my cluttered head
have a delightful day ahead
smiles will bring my day to an end.
frozen clams small package
spaghetti squash cubed 1 cup
fresh okra 8 med, size
thin slices of yellow potato (small)
noodle sauce to taste
salt, pepper, red peppers mixed
Japanese fresh noodles
steam ingredients together (wok) the okra creates a nice sauce texture
When we had our new fence put in, we had to remove a cement/rock border along part of the driveway.
I see the pieces every time i come down the driveway, and for some reason, I am not wanting to just “get rid of them”.. they stand there like our own version of Easter Island “statues”.. waiting… watching.. standing guard
There are still pieces like this along the front edge of the property. They have been there for years, and are very much part of the landscape. the iron fence seems to be very much in harmony with them. They just “are”
You can just barely see the top of one if you look along towards the fence. Not wanting to disturb the blue spruce the rest of the edging will stay where it is.

Happy week-end everyone..
remember, Funky Monkey Boutique Sale is tomorrow
Saturday, October 15th. 9 a.m. – 1 pm
1010 Hunt club Road,
On the 11th of every month, we celebrate ancestors Day. through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors, and those who have contributed to our lives in a way that has shaped us into the person(s) we are today.
I speak often of appreciation, and gratitude, why because it is important to realize and remember that we do have much to be thankful for. I thank the Universe every day for the blessings in my life. I am alive and able to experience the joys that come my way. Sometimes I don’t realize it is a joy, I “react” but.. in the long and short of things… usually, almost always, I come to realize that the obstacle or challenge was a gift.
Sometimes we forget how wonderful something is, till it reappears in our lives. Be open to the “adventures” that come your way. Believe that if it is “in your face” there is a good reason for it.
