Good Morning every one, how are you today?  It is not that I don’t have a lot to say, I could, but I came across proverb today, and spent a good time digesting it.  Thought to share it with you.

This description of this picture says it is an Amish man riding his horse-drawn buggy through a blizzard in St. Mary’s MD. USA, Feb. 10.2010.  I reflected on this moment of his journey, and eventually I decided that  yes, dressed properly I would have loved to have shared the experience.

Not everyone is on the same page we are .. or even reading the same book.  appreciate and accept the differences we meet along the way, focus on the chapter in our own lives and live the day to its fullest capacity.

Smiles

What gives you an instant smile?
What when you see it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy?
Could be lots of things..
One of my “smiles” are sheep/goats..
I’m not alone, I see sheep pictures, curios, soft toys in all the shops.
Sheep, in person, when you visit them on a farm, may look soft and cuddly, but if their coats are full
and they are out in the pasture, its ah… not so inviting to throw your arms around them for a snuggle.. LOL nor will they necessarily let you.

A Felter, I have tried to clean raw fleece.. what a chore that was.  I loved the activity though, the thought that I was doing what pioneer women did, clean, dry, and the  prepare the fleece through the different stages to either felt or knit/crochet with.  I only made it so far, I stumbled and stalled when i got to the spinning wheel phase.  My wheel sits waiting for me to gather the patience to sit and try again.  Still when i look over and see my spinning wheel, I smile.. it reminds me of happy moments when I was knee-deep in organic fibers .. the other project that I will leave to others is the dying of the fleece.  In the living room I have a showcase full to brimming of all the different colours I could find.  My stash is another “smile” in my life.

Smiles come in all shapes and sizes and they originate from a happiness inside.  a person who is always pleasant and cheerful, can spread their joy wherever they go.

Just imagine the thrill and happiness this athlete is experiencing.  A “smile” he /she will remember for an eternity.

Always remember to smile.  Seeing a resident of Raglan Shire (Zoolie), makes me smile.   photo taken by Q    avatar is a Loco Poco kangaroo … You smiling?

Did you know – Sheep people (Chinese Astrology) are thought to be sensitive, talented and extremely creative, elegant and charming.  They get along with almost everyone, they are peace loving, ardent and easygoing.
