Dumplings are out of this world, they come in a zillion flavours and in China depending on what part of China, they all have different tastes, flavours and are cooked if not steamed, fried, however they are presented they are wonderful.

Oh you noticed, that a toasted avocado got in there, that is what you can eat when you are out of dumplings. However travelling sister, without access at an airport will have her next favourite, potatoes the burger was on the side. =^_^=

Left overs for breakfast some like it hot.. which it was first time around… but this I had chilled.  Nice way to start a day.

cartoon dogThis is what happens when you start to doodle a mouse, but are not really into it.  distraction – big time –  I was using charcoal, the actual piece (still at the church) is different, I used scotch tape to remove shading in place.  I sent it around to friends, but got no reaction to “what happened”  .. ok that’s not true, because they all answered something completely different .. and not related to the picture I had included

Distraction?    We have a tendency to read sometimes., actually we glance at it, and then respond.  OK OK not all the time.. but often. I do it, and I know I’m not alone.  The only reason I worked at not doing it, was because I had a husband who having been an editor, was patient and consistent at pointing out to me how often people in his “circle” didn’t answer a question, or completely misread his missive.  He was especially hard on the journalist he worked with.  We won’t go into when he was doing government contracts.

Why do we skip over material, I have discovered that I have begun to skip over pages in a book when it gets boring.  Or, the writer is taking to long to get me to where I want to go.  How unfocused is that?

miceSee I do know what a mouse looks like…   I was going to doodle another mouse.  like duh!  DISTRACTION..

I’m suffering from Not In My BackYard…..symptoms…. torn…. church members and friends are being so helpful.  I’ve gotten some good ideas.  There are actually videos on YouTube. !!!! I’m learning something new every day.

Happy Sunday everyone!  Enjoy the day. Tomorrow is Monday!!!  focus, focus, focus.

Facebook has a habit of popping the past at you.  This morning, I found this on my FB page.  I wondered what on earth !! then I read the notation at the bottom, they had provided that too.

Do you recall what you did 6 years ago?  And the next question, Do you really want to know?

Curious, that’s all.

Personally I care more about what I’m doing now and how I live now, PL Precept # 16  All things progress and Develop.  Every moment counts, I love the experience of living.  The past.. yes it was good at the time, but the reality is, I don’t even know where Mr. Spud is today, what happened to him. OH and the spuds, were they significant?  who knows, that was then, this is now.

Enjoy the day everyone!

It is full of such potential and possibilities

Having a good day and loving it

OK, what does that mean,  It means just what I said, I had a great day and I loved every minute of it. I got some work in, some play, I spent time with a friend, tried a new recipe, Potato and chick pea balls, seasoned with garlic (forgot the ginger) diced onion, cheese,celery, I used eggs and bread crumbs to hold them together.  Baked for about 45 minutes till they were golden brown.. Delicious.

Now the fun part, as you know I’ve been going back into SL, Q (Qyhat Harbour) has a shop in SL, actually 2 shops,  She has been working at getting the shops ready for the Holidays.  I saw a teddy bear that really took my fancy, and thought I’d like to have it in my condo (a touch of home) on a space over the Tiny Outpost that I share with Q.  This got me thinking that other people like bears, so I decided to build a bear for the Emporium. Productive


Got  a new hairdo – isn’t it fabulous.. changed my eye colour to a blue to go with my new dress.  I also got leg warmers, Shopping,   A new friend gave me a gift   =^_^=   I made the time to go through a large chunk of my landmarks, getting rid of all the outdated ones, Organized  I actually worked on the small holiday gift cards that I will need in the next week or so, International mail has to be ready to mail out by end of the month, first week in December if you want your greeting to get to friends in time.  I even found time to go dancing at a club where another new friend works.. She was however not working this evening. Still it was a good time


The dancing in the club gave me the incentive to go to the Animation shop and purchase my own dance moves. –More shopping =^_^=

You know one of the PL lessons is to keep in mind that people grow by being praised and applauded by others, this is true, however, I think it is very important that we recognize our own merit as well.  That we recognize our accomplishments and celebrate them.

God knows no strangers.  God Loves us all… The poor, the rich, the great, the small… God is a Friend who is always there….To share our troubles and lessen our care…. No one is a stranger in God’s sight….For God is love and in God’s light,, may we, too, try in our  small way, to make new friends from day to day  Helen Steiner Rice Foundation.

Now it is off to bed I go, to dream of great memories I made today.  Tomorrow will be a brand new day…

Blessings everyone.. I hold you all in my prayers! Now and always.

Did you know?

If you rub a potato on your snow goggles before you start your descent, do it when you get on the ski lift.  rub raw potato over the goggles, and your ride down should be nice and clear.

Out of silver polish, take a few potatoes and boil them up.  Remove them from the water and save them for another use.  Put your silverware in the potato water, let it sit for about an hour, then remove the silverware and wash.  Tarnish should be gone.

One more.  Use slices of raw cold potatoes over your eyes, to make the puffiness go away.

Lessons can be learned through awareness.  If you think of the hardest thing for you to do and how much you resist it, then you are looking at your greatest lesson at that moment.  don’t let resistance stop you from making changes.  Observe yourself, watch how you resist, then go ahead anyway.  Here are some non verbal clues, of how our actions often show our resistance…   Changing the subject  >> Leaving the room >> Going to the bathroom >> Being late >>> Getting sick >> Procrastinating by doing something else, doing busy work, wasting time, etc….

Then of course there are the verbal clues – “I’m waiting for the stars to say it’s OK….>>>>>>> This is not the right environment >>>>> “they ” won’t let me change >>> It’s all “their” fault.>>>> how many more can your fill in here.

Oh and let’s not forget the self concepts >>> Too old >>>>Too young >>>> Too fat>>>> Maybe its just all too much >>>> and if we are honest with ourselves, there are the delaying tactics, denial and fear.  Truth is… the  process begins the moment we begin to think about making a change.

TAO ..The only constant in life is change …

PL .. Have the courage to take the first step. break free, start something new… believe in yourself and take the first step…
