Contemplative Monday




The following quote is from 'The Pocket Thich Nhat Hanh'
and published by 'Shambhala Pocket Classics'.

MINDFUL  LIVING


"When you eat your breakfast, even if it is just a small bite early n the morning,
eat in such a way that freedom is possible.



While eating breakfast, don't think of the future, of what you are going to do.



Your practice is to simply eat breakfast.



Your breakfest is there for you; you have to be there for your breakfast.



You can chew each morsel of food with joy and freedom.
Eat with gratitude."

Eclectic Tastes



I heard this group on the radio in the car yesterday
and enjoyed their sound and harmony.

They are a Canadian folk/country trio and were formed in 2006
combining their three solo careers.

Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

Saturday Morning Post


Tuning in for another week.....


This is the BEST sounding radio I have ever heard.
I got it last week from a friend's friend who was selling everything and moving out west.


Parking lot at beach.


Shop corner.


Since Ron is still building strength from his heart attack in March,
he does not always go as far as Sophie and I do at the park.
Hills can be very difficult for him....either up or down.
Takes time.


A view of MacDonald House from the front for a change.
My shop is on the third floor from the basement.


Cleo, one of the three 'resident' dogs at day care
 when we were picking up Sophie yesterday. I think Cleo wanted too come along too.


Very calm sea from 'my perch' last Sunday.


Now who couldn't use with a little more sunshine this time of year?!
OK Jean in New Zealand, you would be the exception here!!


From a series called 'Glamour Girls'.....a plate series that is.

A Little Christmas in The Park



We had Sophie at the park in Halifax on Monday and came across this 
'nursing tree trunk' with this 'little Christmas scene' on top.

Still No Snow


The garden is ready for our first snowfall......any time now.....


'Word' has it from Canada's national weather service that the Maritimes
will have a wet (snowless) winter this year.


And of course as soon as I say this, we'll be waking up to two feet of snow!!


It has been a few years since we have had a 'mild', by Canadian standards, winter.


To be honest I just wish we will have winter with snow any day now.
I love those cold and crisp days with the sun shining.
Not these gray, overcast ones we've been having.


It just doesn't feel like winter until we have some snow around that lasts till April!!


We are prepared and ready for whatever nature decides to give us.


Still we wait......

From My Perch



Must be a better surf up at the point
because there was nothing here on this side of the hill.


Looking out my shop window at MacDonald House on Sunday.
