jingle happy

OK this is a happy sound, but for me, I found recently a pair of these at a thrift shop so I was very happy.. The jingle of change to acquire them, pleased me big time…

The clerk at Nordstrom, held up this evening bag for me, it was on sale for hundreds of dollars, I bought the backpack (purse) in her right hand.  I’m silly, but not “there” yet… for a “lark” maybe, but not at that price.  =^_^=

Sunday greetings..

People were being seated at the table next to us, so I quickly snapped my picture, not knowing how many were in the group and where they would sit. The view you see above is what I had been enjoying while I dined on my fish and chips (pub style)  the slaw that was served with it, was done with fall veggies.. different and very tasty.  It however was the view that help my attention, and my friend who had introduced me to this charming pub, assured me that after we ate, we could walk out side for more.  In the summer it seems there is an upper patio where one can enjoy a brew and eat with friends while appreciating the roar of the water below.

the rushing water looked so vibrant and yes I will say exciting. It had a purpose, it was going somewhere.  The nippy frost in the air was a perfect companion for its journey.

There are days when I feel my life is flowing like the water was yesterday, where the movement is so fluid that I am lost in the vapours of the rush.  The roar was constant, the movement rolling, and in some places it was careening past as if chased by demons.

Yet for all the movement, there was a sense of tranquility.

Life was at its very best, time spent with a friend, a good meal,  nature’s ambient sounds  and visuals,that filled  our senses,  The “world” was alive.. the sun was shining,  the air clear and invigorating…perfect.

May your day be blessed with much happiness, enjoy it, share it, and pass it along.

Good Tuesday morning to one and all.  I have used this picture before, I don’t recall where I got it, but it is one I’ve obviously kept.  It still has an appeal.

I believe in balance.  There is no wrong without there being a right.  Everything seems so subjective, it is not always easy to find objectivity. We try.  At times it is like walking a tight rope with no safety net.  Even when we see and intellectually know the safety net is there, We doubt.

Today, no matter what, I want a happy day.  So… I found Pippa’s post on Instagram… come on… doesn’t she make you smile.  She gets my smile every time.

Friday – Happy Day!

Pippa in backpackGood morning,

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.

Thursday Doors 11.2.17

abandoned 7

Hello on Thursday!  This is the door I’ve tried to get to for the last month or so.  I remember when this house was occupied and the welcoming decorations that adorned the door in years past.

I chanced the drive up the long  drive way, but no… there was no  way I could closer or move the brush to take a clear picture of the door.  Such is life, it looks like the homes on the next door lot have also been purchased, and are being left to… waste away as the weather does its work on them.

Eventually  the contractor will come, tear them down,  some new buildings will go in, condos, or another type of multiple family building, with little to no green space for the children to play.  It is happening all over, I’m sure not only in our city.

A door was often a welcoming part of the home, during times of celebrations, or events, they would be  a place to decorate, with festive colours and maybe even a banner. Welcoming guests,  just being plain neighbourly.  People know their neighbours, children played with each other, learned about how each lived.  Learned to respect and enjoy another’s culture if it was different from their own, and even if it was similar, no two families were carbon copies of the other.

My doors today, have had life take over, and are no longer the symbol of welcome they once were.  Please, visit   Norm 2.0 for his blog and a link to other Thursday Doors

Does your door open to new possibilities, on a regular basis?

Every day we are blessed with new opportunities. For a healthy life, it is our responsibility to keep our passage way/doorway  uncluttered.

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!!!

Disco Monday aka Wednesday

arriving for some disco

the clan start to gather

the fun began

at Pacifique (SL) the music, the atmosphere, the friends,

a musical interlude, a nice way to end the day.

Ok that was how I ended my day, but the start was just as great.  We drove out to visit with our new whippet, here she is spending some time with her soon to be brother.  Who is being as aloof and distant as he can be.  Real party poop.

Keeper 10.18.17b

Meet Keeper, she is 5 years old.

Keeper 10.18.17cOK she saying, I’ve done my few minutes with big brother, now let’s do something else. She is a sweetheart, can’t wait for her to be home with us full-time.

There is room in a day to do a lot of things, attend to what needs doing, resting, and having some “chill” time.
