pleasure – quilting

When we apply ourselves to making something we enjoy, it is a pleasure.  The results are rewarding.  When we apply the same philosophy into any of our choices, life is good.  There were “difficult” moments, for example when my sister decided that she didn’t like her first choice of threads when doing the finishing, she ripped out and redid by hand in smaller stitches with a smaller needle and different thread, to get the results she wanted.  Voila, a beautiful and happy quilt.  Was it hours of work, or pleasure.. =^_^=

1, 2 buckle my ?

Bom dia, What a day it has been.  Problems with my e-mail have been giving me problems for the last couple of days.  After three attempts with the provider to determine why the e-mail was not coming in. and 48 hours later, they try to sell me a plan (  until then it had never been mentioned).  It would only cost me six dollars a month, and they would watch over my PC and mail (they are the provider)  Needless to say I was not a willing player of that game.  When I asked to speak to a Supervisor I was told, there was no Supervisor, they were in a meeting.  A Manager then, no sorry no Manager,  Seems manager and supervisor were one and the same.

PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.

PL Precept # 2 To live is to express one’s self

I did get annoyed and I did express myself.

PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

My day started with my leaving home without my phone.  Then discovering, that I couldn’t find my phone at all.  Since I was/ am waiting for the insurance people to get back to me about the car, let us just say, it wasn’t a banner start to the day.

3 – 4 – shut the door

It is almost 8, I can close off and shut down, call it  day.  Tomorrow is another day. I am sorry I missed getting on earlier today, I hope you all had a very productive day

Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Any one know the rest of this little ditty.

5 – 6  Pick up ??

It is all good, my son called concerned about my phone, that was a big “happy” for me.  and Leon my bbf  (wonderful caring dog) was happy to see me, content to snuggle and cozy up.  What more can a gal ask for. =^_^=

Always count your blessings come end of day.  (yes phone found)

accidents happen

IMGP2660 Nick

Sorry everyone   I didn’t get to church today, was busy being hit by a car, and dealing with having to do an accident report, and getting my car towed etc.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

Sometimes, things happen that are unexpected.  Living in the NOW, you deal with it and move on.

PL Precept #7    Everything exists in relativity

PL Precept # 4  Being annoyed limits your expression

I won’t refuse positive energy being sent this way.  =^_^=   Thanks!!

waiting

1st day 12.14.18_036

Waiting for 2018 to end.  What a year it has been,  Major changes, a much loved story book romance, came to an end.  Lost in thought last night, I wandered through the open doors of the memory vault. Each new day, brings me further away, from the day last May when I was left behind at the runway, my time not yet come to fly.

What will the new year bring, one will never know till the time comes.  Meanwhile, the clock ticks a steady beat..counting down to what…

Chinese New Year is at the start of February this year.  We will enter the year of the Pig.  Tonight in my part of the world, we will slide into 2019, a little over twelve hours from now.  If I didn’t know the time would it make a difference.  Not really, my life would still be in change mode, and after a good sleep, I will wake to begin yet another day of adventure and exploration.

inner travels

IMG_1362

I lay watching the slow rotation of the ceiling fan, a very lazy start to the day indeed. Keeper (female whippet) lay sprawled out beside me.  She was showing her nurturing side, concerned that today might be a repeat of yesterday.

IMG_1358She gets very concerned when I cry and wail.  Velcro (male whippet) her older brother, takes it in stride, he saw and lived through my display of raw emotion, when my husband was in his final days, and Keeper got out and ran away.  Yesterday he simply got up from his favourite chair in another part of the house, to come  lie beside me, to lend me his support and quietly wait it out.

IMG_1360My son the other day, looked at me, and said, ” Mom, its OK to cry”  and of course it is, but for me, I can’t just cry, I have to be  totally shaken and depleted, the body has to over-ride my happiness and stubborn mind that tells me, that there is just so much to be thankful for.  And of course there always is, I am so blessed.

However sometimes, the sadness, and discontent of others is too much for me to bear. I feel their pain, frustrations and disillusion.  And I have learned that I cannot be happy for someone else.  You can not lift the happiness from your life, like a shawl and put it around someone else. You can be kind, listen, share in their “present state” and lend what-ever support you can.

IMG_1363

In the end, the choice belongs to them.  Yesterday I cried, all the sadness, the disappointments that I have listened to for the last many days and months, welled up and demanded to be released. I wanted escape, and freedom from the continuous onslaught of negative news, the vicious nature that is surfacing in the world around us.  The curiosity we seem to have for the gossip tabloids, that thrive by reporting or should I say offering up gossip about cheating, lying and fornication.  Where we lust instead of love.

IMG_1365Time for some time out.  Quality time without a cell phone,  computer, laptop, or tablet. There is a reason, dogs (pets) are the best of friends.  They offer unconditional love. Nothing more, nothing less.

Cherish your family and friends, offer kindness and understanding to those around you, when there is unkindness, or dishonesty aimed in your direction. Deflect it, or let it pass you by.  Life is too short.

PL Calendar, day 26        Maintain a Positive Attitude and Wisdom will                                                   come to you.
