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

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..

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.

So it was, there before me, in its majestic glory, the ocean. It was later in the day than we expected to arrive, but here we were. Other cars were parked along the road, people with their camera poised for that perfect picture. For me, it was the moment itself that was perfect. Taking in a deep breath, the rest of the world around me disappeared. In a second one can live and relive a lifetime. No matter how often such moments occur in my life, I am always amazed that such serenity and peace can wash over me, filling me with a gratitude and appreciation that no words can fully express, the blessing is to live that moment to the fullest.
The camera can capture the landscape, and perhaps a “mood”… but that moment of connection to the “Universe” is very personal and unique to each person who was there on that highway, we all experienced our own individual “blessing”
Some of us travel on the water, some of us are grounded on land, but no matter where we are in life, when we experience that intimate connection with the Divine force of Nature, we are captivated, enthralled and in that moment, we are ONE totally engaged in the transcending power of LOVE.
