lessons – PEACE

Growing up, I remember my Mother collecting the tools she would need when she retired.  She was determined she would weave.  She also sewed, growing up in the early years before Father passed away, Mother made our clothes, pretty dresses, frocks with smocking, we were little charmers.

Upstairs she stowed her treasures, materials for sewing, wool for knitting, and the materials she would weave with.  We had boxes and boxes stored for that time when she would retire and spend her time lazily doing the things she loved.  Did I tell you she painted too.   Was a creative lady my Mother was.

When she finally did retire from her years in a Government office, away from her officer, desk and responsibilities there, guess what, she dove into her volunteering with a non profit group managing their business affairs.  She was part of a group of ladies who felt more needed to be done for seniors on low income,  They did what needed doing to have an apartment built to meet their goals.

Mother managed the building, did all that needed doing to keep it afloat. Went to meetings, volunteered with other groups, for other needs she felt were not being fully addressed.  Drove seniors for appointments, opened a tuck shop in the building she and the others in her group had now enlarged on ….She was part of Meals on Wheels.

All this to say, she never did her weaving, her sewing interested faded away, She did knit and crochet at night while she rested in front of the telly, but that was for babies in the home for unwed Mothers, blankets for the hospitals, you name it.. Mother had her hand in it.  If it was to help others, she was there with a helping hand.

She outlived most of her friends, (close ones) and others who she had know  over the years, were now, like her, too frail, age had slowed them all down.

We all do our best to live each day as best we can. If my Mother had any regrets, she never spoke of them.  My Mother and her friends were of a generation that grow up with World wars 1 and 2, they knew about scrimping, saving, and making do.  They also knew how fragile a life can be.

PL calendar day 31    Someone who is mentally prepared is strong.

Even when things look grim, if you take on the situation with determination, you will be able to make a fresh start with a positive outlook.

World peace is essential if we are to give hope to the next generation.  Love, caring, and understanding, begin within ourSelves.

October 1st

pomegranate paintOctober has arrived… Outubro 1… Bom dia

Yesterday I went in search of a colour of paint that would mix well with what I had to enhance the suggestion of blood.  Dried blood.  Luckily where I shop there is always someone to help and with my cohort  Little Piglet, we spent a happy hour browsing and shopping.  I know it is not often someone comes in looking for blood, but Isabelle, at Scrap En Mass (Alfred, Ontario) was up to the task.  When you shop with a goal in mind, you are more easily able to describe what you want.

The ambience of the place is also a factor, the display of merchandise, the overall sense of creativity and fun that is generated by other customers.  The time spent searching out, then playing with the items later, is always an interlude, that passes quickly, it is refreshing.

old menu =^_^=

old menu from 1967

Sorry for the quality folks, I was trying to handle it without ripping  or doing damage to it.  This menu was from the Regency Room, I think in St. Catharines, Ontario.  Long gone are those days,  The pies were all .20 cents a slice.

Anyone know what Bruxelloise is/was?

I told myself no way would I have a bedtime snack, but guess what, the call of the avocado toast was too great.

Our ancestors lived with the land, they worked hard to cultivate and bring what they hoped would be lasting foundations for generations to come.

In Perfect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors every month on the 11th. We offer our appreciation and gratitude for all that was, that made us who we are today.

Our ancestors built and walked through many doors.  Many still stand today.  A humble home with a solid door, one that opens in welcome,  and at night provides shelter from the cold.

Open your door today, welcome the opportunities that come your way, carpe diem …. seize the day.

Have a joy filled day, may your hours be filled with blessings that  stay with you forever.  Life is meant to be lived.
