PL Calendar day 5 (2019)

Start by thinking – this is interesting

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it.  From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come out of it.

Dolls and life

3 friends, Vanilla,ChenMay,Kit

Once upon a time.  Remember the stories we were read when we were children. I don’t recall too many of them now, but I do seem to recall they all had happy endings.  Lately I’ve been introduced to the new dolls that are on the market, perhaps I shouldn’t say new, because they have been around, they are “new” to me.

It has been a delight to discover that there are many different cultures represented in the choices, however one does have to search them out.  I found one  the other day that had been discarded, she was no longer “perfect”

Someone, had given her a very bad haircut, and she had lost patches of her hair.  It was a sad face that looked back at me when I found her in the store.  She came home for a spa day, the next day I took her in and the kind lady pierced her ears for me.  I had thought to take her to the doll club meeting earlier this week.  She was very happy with her new look, unfortunately it didn’t work out that she was able to accompany me to the meeting, but I have promised her an outing soon.,

sitting pretty with her doggie 6.11.17At the doll club meeting, I learned a lot about some of the work that is being done with dolls, especially in health care.  Dolls are brought in to visit Alzheimer patients, with heart warming results.  There was also talk about organizing a tea party for young girls and boys, who would like to  revisit a social custom that many no longer share or participate in.

I myself learned that my new “young lady” was the right “doll” to introduce to others, the fact that we all go through different “phases” in our lives, and sometimes, we are left with visible signs of our “trauma”.. that doesn’t change who we are, we are still beautiful in our own unique way. And more often than naught, we are a better, and stronger person for the  challenges we faced and overcame.

I see dolls in a totally different way now as an adult.  I am amazed at how dolls have changed (varieties) over the years, yet, now as always, they still infect us with a love that transcends age.

Share a hug today.  Reintroduce a doll into your life =^_^=

PL Precept #15   All is a mirror….

the look of innocence ?

44f4c55d7e5ffdaf2e6c9c9ba827d84d

if you are a pet owner

you may chuckle at the reminder of your pet’s look of total innocence

on occasions when you know

that they were responsible for the surprise

you found on your return to the homestead

enhanced-buzz-18358-1383303680-1

the reality, they live their moments,

they don’t plan them,

they just get right into the moment and enjoy it

they are totally baffled by our reactions

to what they probably don’t even remember doing

IMG_20150517_095737472_HDR

a child will react to a moment, they will do so, without even thinking about it

either hide or pose, but whatever they do

they do with presence.  they haven’t learned the adult behavior

of avoiding a response, or colouring it.

when do we begin to change

and  become statistics

with resumes that define our existence

static (27)

now instead of telling you I love you

I send you an icon

so today, I think

I’ll be an avatar, a dinky to be specific

what about you

Q June 30_003

really… this is me celebrating Canada Day

how much more innocent can I look

Service is at 10. see you there.

j’aime ca, I like it

bears, down time

Hanging out, chilling, doing whatever comes along… it took me awhile to achieve this.. I grew up when being idle meant you had nothing to do, therefore, a parent seemed to feel it was necessary to find you something to do.  And/or, during the academic years, one was supposed to be studying and applying what time we had to achievements, goals, etc.

bear, scratching his back

I am grown up now, and I can scratch my own back. (should I need to).  We leave tomorrow for a road trip, therefore, I will not be sharing time with you till my return.  I could I guess take the electronic gear I require to stay in touch, however, I’ll be busy collecting and shuffling my thoughts and ideas, so that when I come back, I’ll hit the ground running.  Besides I’ve learned in life, that friends who are true, will be there for you when you need them, Since I have learned to like myself, I now appreciate and value my friends even more.  You understand, how important it is to “let go” and live, love..  Love is being alive.

bear,brown

You’ve seen this guy before I like to keep him handy, cuz he reminds me that taking time to chill, is alright, and the more you allow time to nurture your inner Self, the stronger, and happier you become.  I like being happy.  Sharing with you makes me very happy, Have fun, enjoy the coming days, let your creative energy soar, I look forward to catching up when I return.

so .. laugh

The other day I had to take my pc in for a health check up.  I’d already had a home visit and the problem couldn’t be solved here.  There many of you out there .. that know the void of being without your regular PC.. Sure I have a totally freaking almost new laptop.  But it isn’t my PC where all my files, pictures etc. are.

I sat at my desk when I got home and felt.. lost… abandoned. I had to set up the Asus to work with.  Not just have it for when we travel etc. Nothing is simple.  It has Win.8 so as soon as I fired her up, she wanted to be updated to Win 10. Ok made sense my PC is Win 10 so I thought I’ll just do the upgrade.   An hour later, I was still waiting for the upgrade to finish and do reinstall etc.

abandoned, country farm house

Time for seasons to change, clock kept ticking away, I wasn’t getting to my “work”..  Oh did I mention that one of the reason’s the PC was being fixed, was that Norton had disappeared off my machine.. and weird things kept happening in almost all the programs.

When I tried to used google on the laptop (my fav search engine and where I got my mail etc.) (Norton works on the laptop) a BIG warning with red X dangerous do not open, and of course it just wouldn’t let me use it. hmmm how else to get my mail, the icon that the tech had put on when my laptop was set up, was deemed an enemy.  I tried all kinds of ways to access it and all were blocked.

abandoned, tumblr

By now my creativity level had dropped significantly, the cobwebs in the gray matter were getting tangled.  Oh look, hello I think it is all updated and ready to go.. Look Look, see Jane run….no icon for my mail, and there doesn’t appear to be a browser.

outer space

I am now ready for the blotter, a small corner will be fine.  Really it was time to tune out.. and forget that the internet age is even in my office.  I thought I should get out my craft supplies and make a card. Certainly I was not in sync with my  technology.  Finally thru a virtual connection, I got a link  to download Internet Explorer.

abandoned doll

Needless to say.. it was a worn and weary little doll who wen to bed last night.  I thought I would summarize this experience with a Snoopy cartoon I found through another blogger.

Thanks for listening, it always helps to be able to babble to friends.

Hey it snowed last night!

Ahhhh don’t we wish it could be so, idyllic fresh fallen snow, the crisp country air and evergreens looking like sugar-coated fantasy trees in a Disney movie.

This was a picture found on social media after the big storm in the Buffalo area. (Yahoo  news)  Somewhere between the two lies the different realities of a winter day in the part of the world that enjoy the wonders of nature’s four seasons.

 

 

Sadly even those who know that winter comes every year, and have been how to drive in snow, forget or choose to  do it “their own way”  Often drivers have not even prepared their cars for winter driving.

This picture was taken of a snow-covered street in Tokyo  during a heavy snowfall.   Remember the stalled vehicles in Kansas City in 2013.

We are not all in positions where we can avoid being out when Mother Nature gives full expression to her capabilities, however, as in all situations in life, if we are prepared, and focused on what we are doing, challenges are always easier to deal with.  When we deal with situations out of our control in creative ways, ingenuity lights the way,

Believe you can do it.  And know without a doubt, that God/Tao  will see you through. (picture of a commuter during a bad storm in London in January 1988) – below is a picture taken Dec.13.2013  of snow in Egypt, the first time in 112 years.

37433ba23a69ad365df6a1d9dbd1a25bSnow is part of Nature’s natural wonders,  we cannot escape the negatives that happen in our lives , but we can choose the way we deal with them. Take a page from Snoopy’s philosophy in life.  relax and enjoy!
