When I saw this picture, I had to look twice, it was on a Pinterest feed, but you can see on it, it originally came from Facebook. Text was on it, you are seeing the photo exactly as it was sent to me.

Does this picture ring any bells for you?  Can you relate to this picture.  How long ago do you think this was?  I don’t think it was really all that long ago.  I do recall seeing old replays of television shows where people had to go to where-ever the phone was to answer it.  Often, there was only one phone to a household.

I do have a cell phone .. but confess to often forgetting it at home, or not having it where I can access it.  In fact, I prefer meeting up with a friend, and chatting in person. It is true with cell phones, and Skype, we can communicate with family, friends and do business using the internet or cell phones more conveniently.  But do I consider it an improvement on the quality of life?.

Any thoughts?

Good morning everyone, today is a church day, the sale is this week-end, therefore there is a lot of setting up to do to be prepared.  If you live anywhere in the area, please pass this information along,  The garage sale will be in the parking lot and the Boutique sale will be in the lower level of the church.  We have lots of “treasures” and “goodies” for you to discover.  This year, we have handmade one of a kind greeting cards that we are excited about.  Affordable and fun.  Lots of retro and diva jewelry, rings, necklaces, earrings, accessorize you look, you will have lots to choose from.

Yesterday’s visit to Montreal was very successful, as you know I’m working on Holiday cars for a group that gives crafted cards to shut ins, and seniors without families.    To be ready for the holiday months,  artist and crafters have begun working already on their projects.

There is something enduring about older vehicles

when you opened a door or closed one

there was a “feel” to it, that doesn’t come with the automobiles of today.

retro, breakfast maker

When kitchen gadgets were perhaps simpler.  Note that the idea for breakfast, was that cup of coffee, toast, eggs and I think those are sausages.

campe+ bike UK

When the romantic dream was to camp in a quiet serene lot somewhere, far from the busy cities and towns,  perhaps park the car and if transportation is required, there is the trusty bike to pedal to a country store.

Of course the realities of today when we look back on our dreams of a quiet get away, are not as romantic.  We have to make time to get a way, we need plan and organize, the darling camper, needs to be found and then it has to be reconstructed to meet one’s needs.  Do these small campers have bathrooms, showers, we have to look at logistics, etc. etc.

Important, is our lifestyle such that we can travel with the barest of essentials, or do we need/want more.  Will the car we presently have pull a trailer, do we want to stay in camp grounds that seem to be stuffed with other campers, trailers, and families tucked together between trees much like the some of the communities in the city.  The only difference being, there are more trees, and likely there is water near by for swimming.

And, let us not forget the pets.  We travel with two dogs.  where do we find open space and safety for them.  As the list of needs and wants mounts up, the reality of that romantic dream coming true fades into the distance.life is a journey

Life itself is  journey, how many times do we hear that said, or alluded to. There came a time in my maturing process where I began to realize that each day was my opportunity to explore a piece of my dream, make it a reality, instead of planing  and working at something that may or may not happen, I decided to focus on NOW.  I still dream of future projects, but my interest is in today, how I am feeling today, and what I am doing with my time today. Somehow, that works for me, being present in all I say and do means that I don’t regrets, and I work hard at not having expectations.  I’ve learned when we expect something, we are often disappointed.  The only person that I have control over, in all respects, is myself.  I own the actions and choices I make.  No more, no less.

bacon loaf

Totally irrelevant to anything previous,  this bread takes one hour to make. and I want to taste it. like NOW =^_^- It has 8 slices of bacon in it.   I’d want more.  1/4 cup of Jalapeno,  3 cups of flour, 1 tbsp baking powder,  2 tbsp  granulated sugar  1 tsp of salt,   1 tbsp  vegetable oil,  12 oz buttermilk, 2 cups cheddar cheese,  8 oz cream cheeze.

Namaste    –    Oyashikiri

 

I’m a confessed bacon addict, if I squeeze a recipe in from time to time, I hope you enjoy!
