Seek and ye shall find. What a glorious day, Keeper and I did our trip to the food bank, (keeper is my female whippet). It was mild with a bit of a nip, but we didn’t mind, the roads were dry and the sky and bright blue, not a cloud in the sky. The kind of blue one gets on a soon to be winter day. The vegetation was colourful in that rustic faded autumn colours that seem to charm me, with the muted shades of brighter days.
I saw fields of harvest gold inter spaced with black wet earth. another field of a crop that was being harvested tempted me, the big machine was in motion, turning a corner as we sped by. There was enough traffic going south today, I didn’t get much opportunity to stop. I could only soak the delightful scenes in for future processing. Made a mental note to come home a different route so that I could search out, a souvenir of our expedition.
Happiness is standing on a quiet road, off the roadways that travel from town to town, and enjoying the quiet of the day. This is the property I found the tree on. You can see that for the most part, all the snow we got the last week or so, is gone. I hope that you had a restful day, that you managed quality time for YOU.

come one come all, come to the ball, it is open to all..
the winds whispered and sang through the trees,
hoping to catch someone, anyone’s ear,
but, the lazy river and the foliage basking in the sun
paid no heed, there was no rush, fall wouldn’t arrive for another couple of months.
Too soon, they awoke to found that the ground was covered in snow, and the cool wind that blew, was in no mood for a ball,
It had come in with the fall, ready to blow the leaves down, and was ready to whip itself up into all it could be, to ensure a clear path
for what was to be. High above from her vantage point above the snow queen polished her wand, making sure her stars were sharp and ready to dispense of all of her glittering diamonds of flakes. With a sweep of her wand, the land below would be covered in snow…
Then, what a glorious landscape it would be. she would call back the wind and open the days to the majesty of the winter sun… Only then would her handiwork be shown at its best. Her diamond flakes would sparkle and amaze, she loved this time of year…
Once more the call would go out, come one, come all, it is time for the ball.
Seasons come and go, we need to flow with the changes. In this way, we will always rejoice at what there is before us. Always be in the NOW.
Did you just groan. LOL, get ready, it will soon be in your face. Crafters are already preparing, and many like myself have started the various projects mid October. There were several craft shows happening this week-end, I suspect from now till mid December there will be a craft show happening somewhere every week-end.
Whether you are prepared or not, you will be drawn in, the festive season is one too bright and merry to avoid. For Americans their Thanksgiving is this month. Double fun, and a lot of home cooking.
Accept everything with appreciation. Appreciate not just people and society, but everything that comes your way. You will experience a deeper joy in life.Perfect Liberty 2012.21
Today I have a deep appreciation for my friend Bonnie, she is a wizard when it comes to organization and planning, I was lucky enough to get some of her time, to help me with my “scattered files” When my husband passed away, (he had been the master planner and keeper of the files) for me it was a mountain of a task to apply myself to what needed to be done.
Wonder woman arrived with her big blue scarf, her cape was in the wash, and giving me time to gather my wandering mind… she gently pushed the procrastination file aside and began in earnest to put some order to the disorder. A big thank you Bonnie.
I have finally reached a maturity where I can acknowledge that I’m not good at everything. >will wonders never cease< =^_^=
Express your feelings without hesitation. If you hold in all your feelings, you will feel heavy. Just say what is on your mind without hesitating.Perfect Liberty 2017.4
We leave a trace everywhere we go, it seems impossible to enjoy without some how taking or leaving something behind. Some harmonize better than others. A wound may heal physically, but it will never be the same, ever. Life does go on, we are blessed in ways that we will never truly fully understand, Nature will soon blanket the scarred and littered land around us with the beauty of fallen snow.
The fairy tale world of a winter wonderland, will lull the weary, allowing for time to recharge and erase haunting memories. Right now she is blessing us with a wonder of colours and vistas of raw umber and burnt sienna interwoven with deep golden hues interspersed with rusty reds,
Today, I am the birch, patiently waiting for you to drive by, tires rolling across the asphalt, and the quiet to reappear till the next motorized vehicle comes along. Please do not be offended, it is simply time for us to hibernate.,
With the blistering heat and the high humidity, I scanned through back files to find a picture that was more welcoming to my wilting enthusiasm for another summer day.
Good morning everyone, how are you all doing this July 2. In the States I guess you are winding down or up for the big celebrations coming your way in a few days. Here In Canada we are recovering from the sweltering heat wave that lasted for all of the Canada Day celebrations. Last night I was outside when I felt the change in the air, the build up of clouds, and the whipping of branches as the non descriptive breeze turned into a very expressive energy that was very interesting to see.
I stood stock still, wanting to take in this explosion of dynamic vitality that surrounded me. I could smell the moisture that was building, I knew that it would only be seconds and it would start to pour. Lightening flashed, thunder rolled, and then, only after seeing the light flash across the sky, did I move. Just as I closed the door, I heard the drumming on the windows.. the rain had arrived.
Thinking it is coming.. makes me feel a whole lot better. =^_^=
A start to a new work week, continuing your summer vacation, whatever your plans, stay cool, don’t overdo, and most importantly, be happy.

The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever changing world.
Meet Pippa, she is a female Whippet who lives with her human parent(s). You can see that in her very short time with them, she knows how to handle them so that life is extra good for her. I’m told that she is a very patient and willing model, just look at that face.. her eyes are wise beyond her years. A ride to work in a warm cozy wrap with a fall coloured whimsical cap – she’s got style. What better way to get around and keep her pedicure and paws perfect for her lazy sprawl on the living room couch after a hard day.
Her owner graciously allowed me to share her pictures, Pippa can be found on Instagram, she is a raising star in the “diva dogs” on Instagram pippa_g_thats_me Pippa was born, in the spring of 2017 and lives in Austin TX. If you enjoy a smile from time to time, she is a whippet you might like to follow. She already has a lot of followers, the numbers grow everyday.
This is the picture that caught my eye. I call it the Gatsby look. Pippa is really good, if I tried to get Velcro or Keeper to sit and model, sigh, let’s just say, ” have you ever chased a hound when its got another place to be??”..Pippa you are a super model already, I look forward to following your career. Your wardrobe attendant is going to be one “busy” gal.
You all know that this has been a very challenging year for me, I am so grateful and appreciate so much the kindness of you have shown “us” The Thursday Door posts yesterday were just so varied and so interesting. With cancer now part of our lives, we are home of course, much much more. There will be no wandering the back roads, for a while, but I get to visit such fascinating places, and see so much through “your” eyes.
I wanted to share Pippa with you, because when she pops up on the screen, there is always a smile being shared.
Life is good, we are very blessed, the seasons give us blazing colours, shades of gray, brilliant whites and our views, stories and photographs all come together in a cornucopia of blessings, different for everyone, but there non-the-less.

Happy Wednesday everyone…. I was driving through a McDonald’s drive through for my ice coffee when I found myself beside a flowering hydrangea. Now I’ve gone past it often, but that day, it was changing into it’s fall colours. The summer white was giving way to the burnt peach/rust that will follow.
To remind you, this is what they look like in bloom early summer. This picture is from the bush on my front lawn. Hydrangea’s remind me of my Mother, she passed away last March, she was fond of the changing seasons, with each passing year of her time here on earth, she allowed nature to take its course, she would blossom in so many ways, it seemed to just happen. Whatever, whenever, she never lost her youthful glow, that came from within. Strength, determination, she held her ground.
This bush has been there for years, I always notice it, whether it is just its sculptured form during winter months, its fresh mint leaves come spring, or the first blossoms of another year.
My Mother is no longer here, but her presence is… When love is unconditional, no matter what… life/love combine, intertwine, harmonize.. like God it is everywhere, in everything we see and do. The sky is always there, weather can change, but the sky is always there.
Blessings my friends… may your world shine, love is everywhere…
Ompah is in Ontario, a little out-of-the-way, but not so far one can’t get to it. The seasons change, right now I’m sure it doesn’t look like this. It will be snow-covered, and likely there will be a chill in the air.
My body has a cold right now. Notice I’ve disengaged myself from the body that is wanting to sneeze, wheeze and be a total drain on my energy.
I envision this wonderful location, patiently waiting for the cold to have its day and disappear.
Such is life, sometimes, Nature has its own agenda, time for me to settle down, find a cave and hibernate for a while. =^_^=
I’ll do that after Hubby takes me out for our anniversary dinner…..International Buffet.. yum.. what is it, you feed a cold or starve a cold?? later, I’ll dwell on it later… =^_^=
I know… I will own my decision to go out, when I should be tucked in bed… I will not complain if/when my body does not take kindly to my actions.
Pl Principle #2 the last part….. ” I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my OWN thinking and ACTIONS”
