Spring yay!

To walk where no one has walked before

I wish, =^_^= but I was the one to make a new trail

down an unused road, that led me to another time

P1000643

a family home, once filled with laughter

now stands silent, waiting

this was not the structure tho’ that had caught my attention

rather I was drawn to a building that called out

to my searching ” eyes”

P1000641

“look, look, see my charm”, I got a picture in full sunlight

but this one with the little building half in the shade

I found had more to say

I sensed this is where the children played

on rainy days, on sunny days

this little structure captured and ignited

their imagination in every way

Wordless Wednesday – snow update

Members from Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, USA, wanting to see the snow in Ottawa, Canada, today, here is a picture taken early this morning.  Currently the snow has stopped.

Blessings on this beautiful day of winter.

snow and ice

snow and ice

as seen under a sky

of faded blue and powder gray

such beauty

in the stillness of the day

captured my heart

and stole it away

that even now

holds me captive to its charm

Life – Nature is ART

chop suey Tuesday

1-30-17-c-towards-osgoode

Blue skies, dazzling sunshine, a fresh crispness in the air, it was time for a day trip. We are fortunate that we can just pick up and go, if the spirit moves us.  The landscapes look so different when they are blanketed with snow and the trees are bare of their leaves.

1-30-17-towards-osgoode

Notice the happy shadows, at the time of my visit, they are free of critter tracks, but I’m sure had I ventured in further, I would have found evidence of the abundant life within the little woodland patch.

1-30-17-aI was content to simply peak silently into the little world I’d come across. Hoping that by standing very still, I’d catch a glimpse of another wandering nomad, or furry critter going about its day.

The simplicity of the moment, the beauty of the shadow a silver-gray on the textured snow brings tranquility and beauty to my tired eyes. The natural sunlight, the fresh air, background noises of the woodland and the cars in the distance, all blend to harmonize into my moment of communion with Nature.

It takes but a second to connect, to allow God to colour our day with a joy of recognition, that it isn’t man-made news that is important, rather the essence of happiness lies within.  Life IS.

To achieve peace and happiness, we must find it first within ourselves.  Peace is a by-product of LOVE.

poached egg on toast

 

Poached egg on toast no… do I know what it is… no.. I somehow press a button that creates a video of sorts.. this is 1 sec. My creative expression doesn’t always work out the way I want it to.

p1000579

Moving along, I tried to capture the berries against the red door of the house next door, ok,

 

click on it.. there should be something there.. this is my morning of poached egg bloopers.

From my mail box to yours, happy day, the snow is light, fluffy and a little sticky, the temperature not balmy, but nice, cozy with my down on.

Oh, and btw, my eggs were delicious, salt and peppered with a tease of a Japanese chili pepper… yummy.

Life is not about everything having to be perfect, I enjoyed being outside, trying to find just the right angle and the perfect frame.  So it didn’t happen like I would have wanted it to, I did get pictures, and in the process, I’m learning.

btw= by the way

 

 

polar vortex, Artic chill

What do you think?  Does this suggest to you that it is cold outside 🐱

weather-dec-15-16

The sun shone so brightly today, for the first time EVER in my life, I out on a second pair of sunglasses over the ones I was wearing so that I could drive safely.  Even then, the glare was so hard on my eyes, it actually began to feel painful.  My eye balls wanted to retreat deep into the recess of my skull.

The sky was the purest of blues, if not for the constant reminder that we were under a frost bite warning, and a caution that it was going to get colder as the day wore on, AND with the wind chill factor, it was like minus 30 degrees Celsius .. Note I am a Canadian that relates to the weather, as seen above in Fahrenheit.

snow-coming-down

I have been told, snow is coming, it was clear and bright today, but it seems certain that over the next 24 hours, we will have snow.  The snow will come and the temperatures will raise, so that we will be in for freezing rain/sleet.

Knowing this, I have prepared myself for a day of creativity indoors.  I am lucky that if I decide not to go out, I don’t have to.  The joys of being retired.

shovel-snow

Yes, snow does have to be shovelled, or getting out of the laneway, could be a challenge, but for those who love to be outdoors, skiing, whether downhill or Cross-Country, snow is welcome. When was the last time you sailed down a snowy slope on a toboggan

tobagganing-fun

LOL true, once at the bottom, you have to make your way to the top again.  Great way to stay in shape, and it is something the whole family can do.

Yes it is cold, Yes it is going to snow, Yes it could get slippery, but you know what, you have managed all these years, you know how to deal with the Canadian winter, or the Colorado lows… where ever you are, use common sense, dress accordingly, drive safely, enjoy the world around you.

Catch a falling snowflake on the tip of your tongue, see how long you can hold it there =^_^=

** remember the weather forecasters, are not the ones who  “control” what you do, YOU are the master of your own “world”

Gather information if you want, but YOU decide how and what you will do .. and when.
