Unfurled


A little poem written in about five
minutes one late evening while
deep in thought!


Unfurled
 The egg  has broken
discussion now open
The yolk of it all
will cause many to fall

waiting in the wings
to see who sings
 held for years deep within
waiting for the conversation to begin
Substance abuse, food as drugs
pain suppressed corked with plugs
 Civil words never safe
trust eroded, an internal chaff
 On the edge years and years
waiting until someone hears

shake in your boots to be exposed
As they divulge, to gain repose!


Someone really knows how to have fun!!

These two getting into the 
spirit with their traditional 
first peppermint mocha
together to kick off 
the season! 

Anyone feeling the Christmas Spirit yet?

We like to enjoy the lights
music and colours of the season longer than most!

Attitude of Gratitude


I splashed colour on the page and coaxed these girls out of the paint!
It's difficult not to be happy when you're feeling grateful. I can honestly say despite how sick my daughter and I were there was ALWAYS something to be thankful for. I was counting down the days to feel better. To once again have a really good sleep.
This is the back page of my Happytiler peeps journal!
Each day I was extremely grateful someone was there to care for me!  I was so fortunate to have a nice bed to cough in, a phone to play games on, and tv in my room to distract me when I couldn't talk for two days! 
These ladies were coaxed out on the opposite page... hence their similar coloured outfits!
 Even though there are rough days I always find joy in something. A lot of the 
time  colour really perks me up too!! Which surrounds me in my home!
First snow fall and Cupcakes photos were used in many online News outlets!
The leaves were still on the trees when it snowed!!
Cupcake loves the snow and took these  in the middle of the night!
The week before it was unusually warm at around 70 Fahrenheit
Sadly we both barked like seals for too many days to count!  Which prevented 
Beardo from getting any sound sleep. The remedies of old didn't work. All the
while we were sick,  good things continued to happen. Cupcake won a couple
of wonderful restaurant gift certificates, and got two really nice pieces of
clothing in the mail to survey. I had two nice conversations with friends and family.

Despite our grief, illness, pain, life still goes on and there are always beautiful
 little things to be grateful for. Especially when you live in such a rich 
country as Canada.

It's often difficult to tune out the nasty news and sad events but there is always
something equally  of good value  to focus on! Lately,  those days where the
news and coughing get me down I change my focus..... it seems to help. 
Along with a marathon of Jane the Virgin....on Netflix...what a quirky show that is!! 

      Other than art what have you been focused on lately?
 I missed everyone  the last few weeks and will try and catch up on blog 
reading this weekend!! I pray none of you get the nasty virus we just had!!
