House by the lake.

A place to rest
enjoying the rays of the sun
listen to the birds chirping.
looking toward the lake
the slight ripple on the water,
the quietness of the minute
then the cry of the loons
calling each other
making certain the babies follows.
such music to the ears.

Walking along the dirt road,
looking at all the beauty
that surrounds oneself.
high above the tall trees
where an eagle sits like a king.
low on the ground
the mushrooms show their heads.
bending down,looking closer
very tiny flowers cover more space,
their color so brilliant
their scent filled your senses.

The tall pine trees
send such special aroma.
birch trees shining silver.
among all the green foliage
hidden birds singing
their song of happiness.
the rustle of the leaves on the ground
as rabbits makes their way to and fro.
one must admire all the beauties
that God provide us for our pleasure
thanking Him for his Love for us.

Continuing on my journey,
arriving at the barn
two beutiful horses waiting
for their evening meal.
I call"Leo,Dusty"
their ears perks up
looking my way,heads bobbing,
galloping to the fence
hoping for special treats
an apple each,which they enjoy.

The chores done for the evening
now is the time for a rest.
recalling the day,
all the beauties seen,
admiring over and over
the quietness that surrounds me.
I sit there looking up
at the very tall pine trees
the leaves of the birches
fluttering every so slighty
in the coolness of the evening.
at peace with myself
very content with my world.

Birch Trees Painting.

In front of me stand a
blank sheet of canvas.
what will I do with it?

Paint a nice landscape,
a sea scape,flowers,
maybe an abstract painting.

Paint brushes in hand,
all the paint tubes at the ready,
I review all the subjects,
and decide what I will do.

It is not hard for me as
I like to put birch trees in my painting
So here I go,
nice blue sky,
evergreen in the background.

Reflection in the water,
a couple smaller birch trees on the left,
a larger one and companion on the right side.

Now I better put some color in the foreground,
some green bushes along with some flowers,
deep pink,blue,purple,white, scatter around
the tall grasses and rocks.

I peruse the painting all over and
being satisfied with the result,
I will sign it with my new pen.

Remark, this painting was done quite few years ago.I just wrote that poem few months ago.

More reflection.

About yesterday Friday. Heather and Allen arrived around nine last night. She had phoned sometime in the afternoon to tell me they might be later than they thought.No problem there .I done the same routine than the day before,feed the horses and then a walk with Cadeau and Heidi,although I had a visitor coming to visit while at the horses."Shadow"the neighbor dog came while there and walk with us as well. I did not walk far this time as it was very hot ,five oclock in the afternoon. My mind wondered a bit ,now that I finished my CQ cushion,and what will I do lack of ideas for sure,in fact too many,as there are quite few things I want to work at.
I think I will try to do "needle tatting" Few years ago I did buy a book on needle tatting,and about a couple months ago I did try my hand at it .Also went on the internet to search and found a couple places with youtube for needle tatting as well as using shuttle. It is good to see how it is done. The book is ok and the instructions are fine . So I will be teaching myself tatting.
Now I am home. Heather brought me back this morning.We went groceries shopping. I could have stayed longer, but Faryn, Allen daughter wanted to spent a couple of weeks with them,and as there is only one other bedroom,it would not have been fair for Faryn to sleep on the sofa. I will be going back in September for a week when Allen goes to the state for a week with a friend to see about skidoo and all that guy things. I know that Heather and understand.

Reflection of today.

I am at Heather place for few days,as her and Allen had to go to Saskatoon. They left early this morning and expect to be back sometime tomorrow,friday,maybe around supper time. Anyway,as usual when I am staying here, I looked after the animals,so I go to the horses around nine in the morning,to feed them and make sure they are fine.The horses knows me very well after all these years,specially Dusty,as he like to come to smell my face. I will be going back again late afternoon for their night feeds. I sure like this time with the horses. Then I take Cadeau and Heidi for a walk. This morning is beautiful and not too warm. The sun shine on the trees,and all is so quiet, not a sound to be heard,no birds chirping or the call of the loons.If one stood still you could hear a pin drops as the saying goes. This walk is really good for the soul as well for the body. As I admire nature, I consider myself very lucky indeed to be in a place like this.even if only for few days as I know I will be back again and again,and enjoy this all over .

Defining"Beauty". Poem.

Beauty is in
the eye of the

Beauty is everywhere.
look around you
open your eyes
and see everything.

Nature hold
its own beauty.
be trees,lake,
wild flowers,
even insects have
a beauty of their own.

To ear the cry of the loons,
the chirping of birds,
the owl screeching,

Havin good friends
is consider beautiful.
beauty is not only
on the outside,
but what is inside
of a person who care.

What about family?
This is the most beautiful
of all beauty,
one can have
in this world
of ours.
