Hey, how was your day? Decided to drop in to the Diabetes Fund raiser in Second Life. It is a good cause, of course since I was there, I felt I should look around. Found myself a fun costume.
I wasn’t ready to do a lot, change worry about hair style etc. so you can see, I chose accordingly, the virtual world, is no different from our day-to-day, we still have to deal with choices.
My ribs are showing. You can’t see how hard I had to resist having one of the special Halloween cupcakes I got for hubby. LOL it was hard, but knowing I had just committed to not having dessert for a month, and I mean JUST…. I settled for the plastic spiders on the icing.
I actually took up needle and thread today, instead of applying more bond, or glue to the fabric piece I was working on. I sewed the part of the roof that had not bonded properly to the background material
Now I’m at a dance with some fab music happening while I am busy sharing time with you. Multi-tasking at its best. You can see my avatar is dancing behind Nick, he and his wife Mel are dressed in identical outfits. They are rather clever. The party is just getting underway. Will go and be social. Meanwhile, we are ending October, tomorrow we start into a very busy month… some time soon we hope to here when the operations will be. I do know that we already have a lot of medical appointments set up for November.
Please understand if I am not as regular with my posts…. I will do my best, because sharing time with you all, is good for me. Over the years, you have all inspired me at some time or another. I love the connection we share. You are all the best!!!
Here is looking at you… “wink”
Happiness after a hard-fought game. Sorry Ottawa, but, Yay Penguins. Sid you are the best! born in Halifax, Canada, he is an amazing player, all round professional who earns the accolades he gets.
Somewhere along the way, I became a den mother to three dolls. I wouldn’t swear to it, but I think Tanya* had something to do with it. I went from finding a doll that kinda reached out to me, to have two more who like being dressed and combed. Do you think this has anything to do with as a parent I was a Mother to a very talented young boy, who grew up to be a gem of a son.
I was part of a group of artistic souls who made one of a kind dolls. We scoffed at the ladies who played dress up with the young dolls as shown above. Preferring our out of the box, one of a kind creations. One should never say never, we simply do not know what lies ahead for us. Or how we end up somewhere we had no idea that it was a direction we were going.
The small cloth doll you see, in the middle is one I made when I was sewing and felting,I was trying to combine the fibre for felting with scrap material I had. My own version of a rag doll.
Salmon pasta salad made with fresh vegetables. Red sockeye salmon, tad mayo, and dash of Himalayan salt. Tempting me to go have my dinner.
Happy week-end to everyone, a long week-end to my American friends, and a busy walk/run week-end here in Ottawa, lots of events going on…
Oyashikiri – Blessings !
we begin with an idea…
PL Precept # 19 Begin Once you Perceive
PL Precept #17 Grasp what is most essential
In this case, my sister lovingly sought out and found this material and presented it to me. I loved it.. I wanted it to be something that would be used, and appreciated every day. I don’t get to see my sister every day, she lives in California, but I appreciate her every day. This pillow graces our bed, so every day, she is part of my daily life. A sister is a precious gift, I am lucky and have two =^_^=
PL Precept # 7 Everything Exists in Relativity
In PL we have a Thanksgiving service every month on the 21st. It is the most important service of the month, held at 7 pm. Members humbly express appreciation to God for all the blessings of the past month, and sincerely renew our determination to follow and practice the PL “Way”
Our 2017 Perfect Liberty Calendars are here and ready for those interested in obtaining one or having them for gifts to friends and family for the coming year. They are available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and of course Japanese. A reminder if you need them mailed to you, there would be a cost for the shipping.
YOU are a blessing in my life
It is September right. If you are a craft person, or an artist, what are you doing right now? working on Halloween or Xmas? If like me your passion to create has you sewing, making, baking, pickling, sculpting, painting your studio/craft room has got to be one big jumble of on the go projects.
Some of my friends are very organized, I myself am a clutter pro, don’t touch my “mess” cuz I know where everything is. Sign at door should say, “enter at your own risk”.
Why am I telling you all this you ask? Because I know that many of you out there are my mirror image.. we tidy, get everything organized when we are in non productive mode.. but, once we start on our projects, there is no stopping us, time disappears, and the ideas are coming fast and furious.
If we stop to look around, we could get discouraged, however, **The key to success is to continue without giving up ** You need to continue and persevere to make your wishes and goals come true. Once you start something, see it through to the end.** this is a PL teaching that works for me every time. Sometimes I need to read it again, when I hit a lull, but by practicing PL every day, I get a lot more done.
I go to bed smiling and feel the smile in my sleep, Life is good.. and I’m here to share it with you. Creativity makes the world go round, when we accomplish something, we feel good, and our smiles work their magic for miles around us.
Smile, today is the start of a brand new day. Loving Blessings to you all!
