Driving by I spied out of the corner of my eye, this quiet lady, sitting prim and proper on a hill. Her land had been farmed, ready for the blanket of snow that would soon cover the sleeping fields.
I couldn’t pass her by, I found a place to turn around, and made my way up the hill. I found her interesting, there were no cobwebs and hanging weeds between her boards, it was as if the fairies had come and swept her clean. Even her faded walls are nicely shaded as if penciled or charcoal -ed, against the winter skies.
For now I’ve dubbed her Lady Finch. Maybe I will get to see her again, when she is sun bathing on a mid-summer day. Anything is possible. =^_^=
Don’t be swayed by the past; It’s what you do from now on that counts. Your failures as well as your successes are now in the past. Always look towards the future and start with a fresh outlook.
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;
Good morning, this is last night’s project, yes it was one of those stay up late nights.. We all have them. The project that keeps us up way past normal shutting down hours. There are times when you just need to go with the flow.
PL calendar day 23 – Once you’ve set out to do something, it is your job.
Once you have accepted a task, don’t make any excuses. Continue the job until the very end and make sure the outcome is something you can truly be proud of.
ps. yes that is mould I have drying at the bottom.
Charm of days gone by. There is so much to take in when you travel a back road. You have to know that you will not get anywhere fast, you simply accept the moments of discovery. This was the scene that beckoned loud enough for me to stop and actually get out. It is aged, tired and worn, but yet it is standing proud. Wind, snow, ice, rain, yes they have left their mark, but the place, for me , still had a quiet dignity. It stood, just off a paved road, but the surrounding land, was rich and bore the remnants of a bountiful crop.
I left today, open to the possibilities, and the Universe provided “seek and you shall find” PL Precept #1 Life is Art
The day was a happy one, and totally productive in a very creative way. I hope you enjoyed the same.
Treasures found yesterday, wonderful bricks, a sign with history, and a set of doors to a root cellar.
Does anyone know what these doors are called? I want to say trap doors, but.. I am not sure? I found wonderful doors, but will save them for Norm’s Thursday Doors.
It was misting off and on, practically all day but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves. I have this lovely friend who I can always count on to get in touch at the last moment and suggest a road trip. Whooo hoooo out of the blue, we took off for an adventure that led us to a wonderful tea room in Perth, Ontario. We really did well, we got there early enough to get a table at the lace curtained table where we could enjoy the street traffic on Perth’s main street at the noon hour.
I didn’t think of it, or I would have taken pictures of the delicate china our lunch was served on, Bonnie had a fancy tea, while I stayed with my ice water.. We both tried the Thai soup, while Bonnie had a sandwich I had a wrap, all delicious. YES we both indulged in dessert. Uh huh, not telling, calories were not counted. Address will be shown below.
Doing something ..just because… can be a wonderful way to enjoy a mini vacation when none was planned.
Happiness is something that comes from within. Doing something that brings smiles and a lot of chuckling is a super way to make a dull weather day, a whole lot of fun. Good food, and great company Whoooo hoooo Katchoo.. =^_^=
Spent a lazy day, painting and trying to resolve a technical problem on the PC. Am I the only one who asks, PC or Apple? I have both, each has their own special features that I enjoy. but neither satisfies me 100%
Such is the way of life. A philosophical conversation years back, Can a husband and a lover be one and the same? Or do you have to settle on which qualities you want to spend the rest of your life with.
Don’t you just love the solid look of this old charmer, it has been so well looked after. While someone wanted the top one, but has left it out in the elements, the inside of it is ruined.
This beauty was ready to roll. The dealer wasn’t open when we happened by, and there was no signage on the vehicle. So I was left with no choice but to steal a kiss and run. =^_^=
Our Honda Ridgeline was secure in the knowledge that she can accommodate all 4 us, in a way the two seater could never do….You may love the wicked ones, but it is the solid good drives that keeps you humming from year to year. =^_^= .
I appreciate a good-looking body, especially one that has been well looked after. You can always tell when there is pride of ownership. Today we take too much for granted. Life is to enjoy, and living is about exploring and discovering. When we are internally happy, the world is a beautiful place.
PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.
Hello on Tuesday.. Was bright and sunny here today, yet where I would be up and out of the house bright and early, I was slow in getting going. Happens, I may have mentioned that while in NH I was suddenly hit with a flash of recognition. I didn’t want to shop, or really look around. I had enough! I’m sorry, for those of you who have had to pick yourselves of the floor, I assure you, it really happened
Such things do happen. Let’s face it, a book was written about the “strange events” that have been recorded to have happened, in the hills of NH. Shrouded Memories, True Stories from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, by Floyd W. Ramsey.
Will it last, who knows. So far, so good, I ran errands yesterday and today, and was not tempted to browse, or “look around”.. I applied myself to what needed to be done, then came back home. I do have some of my artwork on display at Raglan Art Walk 2017 in SL, I have participated for the last couple of years. I do need to send out some invitations.
What you see here, is my darling Canaille (Portuguese Water Dog) watching her human “daddy” eating a sandwich while relaxing with his “notebook” after a day of driving his “lovely” wife around touring the wilds of NH. You can see she is trained on his every move, I think, she believes, that if she waits it out, he will drop something. LOL he never does, but she never gives up hope.
That is what life is all about isn’t it. We need to live each moment, focused on what we are doing, appreciating the moment. When we are “hit” with an “idea” or “inspiration” we should listen, take heed, recognize that it is a “personal” message”
