owl or beetle

Tin man June 25

an owl or a beetle

in the end it was neither,

instead the rusted tin man emerge

and I heaved a sigh of relief

with the decision made,

I could go on with my day

the sun is high

a heat wave is on its way

it is not good-bye

cuz somewhere in your day

I will pop in and

click or hoot

a boo

at YOU

Have a wonderful start to a sunny happy long week-end if you are in Canada, if in another part of the world, enjoy the moments from sunrise, to sunset and the twinkling  winking beyond… Hooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooo loves you..-^+^-   I do!

Pl Precept #10    Love Yourself and Others

 

Chop suey 9.27.16 -abandoned

There are times when I feel simply overwhelmed by the creativity of others.  Thus was the case here, my husband is used to my hollering “stop the car, stop the car” and having to pull over turn around and bring me back to the “whatever” that brought on this outburst.  I was totally taken by this building, it was once an antique car lot.  The detail, the whimsical  character of the architecture.  I would have loved to have met the previous owner.

See the tie man!!  I loved, loved, loved it.  I toured around the building, as much as I could without being an intruder.

The second floor balconies made me itch with curiosity.  Wanting a ladder or access to the inside to I could get closer..  I’ll post a shot from the road, so you can see what I first saw.

Like HELLO.. how could I just drive by and not get a closer look.  It was on getting closer that I saw all the details, and the charming way the owner had put character into the building.

This is what life is.  Think about it.  How often do you meet someone, or see someone and think, how interesting, I wonder??  But, we never follow through, we never take that chance .. we are polite, and go about our business. I was blessed that in growing up, I was encouraged to meet and greet the world in a positive light.

Not only in old abandoned buildings and lost,left behind vehicles do I see beauty and wonder.  I see it in my fellow-man.

PL Principle # 3   I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

There will be more pictures of this house, (Norm’s “Thursday Doors”  but before I sign off, please let me show you the car that was left behind. It was being textured by Mother Nature, she was looking “some” good…=^_^=

Beauty if in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it ….

For those of you who love “rust detailing” and the different patina that Mother Nature can bestow on metal

this car is showing a lot of promise

Internal Clock

Internal Clock

Meet the Tin Man, he is one of the garden personalities that hang round to talk and chat with visitors to our “outdoor living space” He has been around for years, if you are willing to listen, he will regale you of many of his life changing experiences.

My personal internal clock tells me it is time for Mr. Tin Man and his other seasonal friends to come in for awhile. Days are getting shorter, nights longer, Taste buds are asking for more “warm comforting, nesting” nourishment. I don’t crave the rich energizing broth of ox tail soup till my body starts to feel the daytime chill in the air.
Then it is time for a visit to the market for freshly pulled carrots,I love the new darker ones that when you slice them open there is a bright orange center to them. YUM, the sharpness of the northern home grown garlic, the many varieties of onions, and of course the multitude of different squashes are now ripe for the taking.
The roasting pan has been getting used, I’ve had it out several times this week. Where the last many months, we’ve seldom had meaty meals, I’ve now added small pieces of either pork, chicken ( dark meat), or beef not only for the flavour but for the nutrition they offer.
Yes dear reader, the internal clock has kicked in, nesting is occurring.
I’m wanting the smell of baked bread, home made soup simmering on the stove, and my constant glass of water, has gone from iced, to hot from the tap.
Sandals are being put away, the winter footwear is being examined (no I didn’t do it when spring arrived, I was too busy and excited about the baby buds, and beckoning skies) There are two more bags of clothing/shoes etc. to be recycled. Ever notice that what you liked and felt good in last fall, just doesn’t cut it this year. =^_^= LOL its all part of that darn “internal clock”
The shift in colours and materials being used for my artist expressions have also changed. The changes don’t happen overnight, they just happen. When you realize that your “internal clock” has been activated and acted on.. then you “know” you’ve entered the “new” season.

Our “Internal clock” and “inner voice” work together as ONE to GUIDE us on a DAILY basis, often we simply don’t hear or get the total drift of what is being said until we are well into the “new phase” of or life

In the rearranging, storing and sorting, I have rediscovered another “teacher”…  delighted to have reconnected, I will be bringing “Woody” in to church to meet you, one Sunday in November.  Woody is looking forward to sharing with you.

Once you are in sync with your “internal clock” and you make up your mind and accept that it’s a new season… be enthusiastic, jump on board “with the program”, after all, veux,veux pas,  (want or not want), soon it will be winter.  Have your winter coat ready, your woolies (if you wear them) make sure your boots will keep you dry and warm………………………….and SMILE…

Embrace winter, you can’t change it, and it has a lot to offer.  Stay tuned.

Toasty warm Blessings, now and always.
