Bella Martadella.

My Beautiful Bella is 6 months old now and looking
 more and more enchanting as she is growing into her
 eyes and body.
She is a wonderful personality and I think she is more
 Havanese than anything else.
They say this breed loves to shred toilet paper
Yes, so true.
They love to train their owners.
Yes .That's so true as well.
They say they are loving social dogs and get anxious when left alone.
Yes. Bingo.
This is a dog definitely for stay at home people or maybe a travelling
Loyal , friendly, and very loving,
they would make excellent dogs for hospitals
as they are soft , long haired kissers.

The other day we took her out and she enjoyed her head
being stuck out the window but she keeps stepping on the
automatic window opener button and it shuts on her neck.
Gosh! So scary. Poor puppy.

Tanya gave up and is friends with her now but Tanya is a very
loyal old dog and no one can come near me except another dog and family. lol
So poor thing has to be separated from visitors.
Kinda sucks.
Sometimes she behaves and she is certainly given the chance to but it is
tricky and when she gives into guard patrol, she has to go to her room.
So far Bella has not learned to be unfriendly to strangers.
Makes it so much easier and nicer.
I hope you like her portrait.

Have a great day.

Slip and Slide Life

Ballet Slippers was a very nice movie of struggle to live and to
achieve ones dreams.
Goes to show united we stand, divided we fall.
 A lot more fun to be united.

Another beautiful Saturday to enjoy  and so many places to enjoy it in.

I used my dremel yesterday to cut through a thick bone.
I am excited about carving it now using the dremel.
I am bleaching the pieces in vinegar and salt solution.

Hope what ever I make turns out lol
When you get new toys, it takes a while to learn how to use them.
It will be a new experience.

Have a great one

Sing Carrot Sing!

The world is full of ingenuity

Imagine an orchestra of vegetable instruments..

Have a great Day!

Who Pulls The Strings?

Stradivini is another excellent movie with Anthony Quin who plays a violin maker.
It comes in two parts.
I also watched The Red Violin which is also wonderful and worth watching on you tube.
Back then every piece was carved by hand and today these violins are sold for over a million dollars
because of the history behind them and who played them.

Makes me wish I played the violin.
but then I'd be crying most of the time because the strings do tug at the heart.
This is why it is such a special instrument.

Today was dog clipping day. My Bella screamed blue murder. Ayayyay!
Don't like this! Don't like that ! lol
but she came out looking beautiful.
After a few more times she will know the groomer and accept what has to be done.
(I hope).
Then we were glued to the news and the M17 crash.
What a terrible thing to happen. One family has people lost now on two Malay planes.
Andrei Anghel was a 24 year old Canadian, learning to become a doctor, flying to Bali.

After listening to a panel discussing the issue, there was only one fellow, A Professor of Russian studies, who spoke the truth.
The world is full of opinions understanding nothing as usual. Including Mr Obama.

This man said you can have an opinion but you can't change the facts and the facts tell a different story.
They are attacking Mr Putin to create another problem in the world.
Every one is pointing fingers because someone needs to pay for the crime.
How do you pay for a mistake?  All seems so senseless.

Someone is profiting from all this trouble not caring about all the loss of blood and heart ache.
 The people are still lying on the field in pieces and no one knows when they will be picked up,
while looters walk around picking up things they find on the ground.
Just unimaginable.
A while back, before 9/11, there was one woman who disclosed that soon there will be a cleansing of the world of people, because there are just too many mouths to feed.

Then all this trouble began. One thing after another.

The Sun Shines and Innocents Die.

The Sun Shines Bright by John Ford.1953

 What a great movie Sure shines a BRIGHT light on
 relationships between people and race.

Thomas Jefferson was a slave owner but he believed in human rights. His major achievements; "his preamble has been considered an enduring statement of human rights.[52] "All men are created equal" has been called one of his best-known sentences and was promoted by Abraham Lincoln." We give ol Abe credit for another mans' words. The main worry at that time was what was a slave to do once he was freed and needed to look for a job? Many slave owners treated their workers very well. They worked in exchange for food, shelter, clothing, etc.... and that was not cheap in those times to do. Its nice to hear something good about this era as opposed to hate and violence.
 Transition to freedom was bound to happen sooner or later.
Today listening to the petty political arguments going around the world, I think men are not born equal.
Women are not considered human and there fore do not require education or rights.
Children are there to send out for meat in war including ours.

It is a sad state of affairs for religion and for politics.
Neither group is doing the job they were designed to do.

Religion is to keep peace through love but even brothers have no love for their own brothers today.

Politics is supposed to be there to organize a society so it has food shelter schools water jobs
celebration and instead they sit and bicker because the ones running for politics are not honorable men and women interested to do good. Like law , it is all about law and not justice. It is not about doing the right thing.. They lie cheat steal... how can we trust their judgement decisions when making
rules and laws? for example how can they justify Human Rights to relate to abusive prostitution?
Today we do not need Unions with the existence of Human Rights do we? But we do.
If companies did to their employees what pimps do to theirs, they would be closed down.

Plastics in water apparently change male fish into females so one wonders how it relates to people and the sudden rise in the gay population. Should we not therefore be concerned about
creating healing water as found in the hot springs and water around volcanoes?
We have so many things to worry about and yet we are all distracted by the world around us
who sits and fights to live, by killing you, for doing the right thing.

Why is it they don't do the right thing at home? It would keep them busy and away from killing
and this would make us all happy.

We speak of killing of innocent people. How can the HAMAS infested area call itself innocent when they send people to die in suicide bombings.
Innocence in Palestine has long been lost since before Yasser Arafat times. The man kissed hands and then bombed. Collected Nobel Peace Prizes and then bombed.
 Everything the free world does, is meaningless to them unless it is their way.
We are not their brothers and never will be.
All these kids will grow hating and damaged by their religion.
Yes the sun shines and innocents die but we are not innocent as long as we support and send our children to war.

Look at how Mexico decided to invade the US and turn it into a Spanish country?
It makes sure the kids cross the border and turns the US into a political mess because they can't do a thing about it.
Ghandi did this. Cuba did this and now Islam is doing this.
Our laws have to be changed and enforced or crime will grow and then INNOCENT people will die here.
In order for multiculturalism to succeed, people have to live and work and study together and not in separate communities. People have to be kept innocent of differences and what unites us, has to be enforced.

Have a great one

Beauty of Grace

Watching the Princess Grace of Monaco movie,
 I could understand why Prince Rainier loved her so.
She did so much for Monaco and was admired by all
who came into contact with her.
She is similar to Queen Elizabeth and Princes Diana who also took their
 duties seriously more so than the other royals.

These are beautiful women, setting great role models for many
to follow.
I am sure the lives they led/lead are not easy but it is nice to know
that somewhere in this world, duty inspires politeness, gentleness of spirit ,
teaches leaders to be kind and caring of the people in their country who love
and support them.
By such royals, people are inspired to be better people in nations that would otherwise
lose the meaning of such things as dignity, self respect, honesty, grace,....

Like Nicole Kidman said: It is a fairy tale that can come true for every one.

I think Nicole Kidman did a wonderful job portraying Princess Grace.
Great movie.

It was not the most exciting game but Germany finally pulled through before penalty kicks, in overtime. Argentina had plenty of chances to score 3 goals but screwed up. Messi was a very bad loser but hey! It wasn't theirs today. Schweinsteiger made such a mess on the field confusing every one and injuring himself so many times. He wanted it so bad he could taste it and this is what it takes to win. I never saw so many head bangin in one game like in this one. I was surprised they had players left to play. One thing I did notice was the shin guards. They all wore long thick ones. The close ups when they tangled legs and feet looked so dangerous. Boy. I hope they get a chance to enjoy the beach before going home. Big party tonight for these guys lol xoxoxoxoxox

Carpet Laughter.

I don't usually like Joan Rivers cause sometimes she goes too far and gets gross but this
episode made me laugh.

The weather is super duper these days so I took out the carpets and hung them to wash on the porch.
I used Ivory dish washing liquid and a good jet stream from the hose and now they are drip drying in the sun. Power washing carpets is the new thing dontcha know.
The sun should kill anything left in them should there be something.

My Mom used to take out her Indian rug out in winter to clean in the snow.
We would both be there throwing snow on it and swooshing the broom on both sides of it.
It came back in fresh and clean. We never had dirt or dust or chemicals in it.

My Mom was meticulous that way. Everything had to be disinfected all the time.
No one allowed on the rug.
Her floors were polished to a mirror shine and she would sit talking about her floors all the time cause no one was allowed to walk on them either .
 My Dad one day got mad at her and told her he would remove the floors if she continued to bicker about them. When we sold our house the people who bought it stripped all her wood floors and tiled them My Mom was heart broken. lol
Had she known, we would have used them.

No wonder I am the exact opposite of her. I say dirt is good for you.
Farmers sit in it all their lives and a good farmer knows his soil by the texture and taste of it
and you know what they use to fertilize soil dontcha ? lol
 When we would drive by a field freshly fertilized by cow manure, we would take a deep whiff and say hmmm Good Fresh Air!!
while my Mom who hated dirt and farms, would be turning green.
My Dad and I enjoyed playing with her this way.

As she got older she got over it cause we loved farms and towards the end, I'd take her to the horse club where my kids would ride and she and I would enjoy feeding the horses carrots.
What a lovely life to live amongst such gentle beasts who really perk up when they see you coming with a bag of greens. Doesn't take long before 10-15 horses surround you waiting their turn to crunch.

I love throw carpets for this cleaning reason. The wall to wall can never really be clean cause they lay them over dirt to begin with so when they get wet, guess what you are wetting under neath on the wood?
Have a great Day!

Ball of Christmas Faith

I found this bauble I made a while back because people were saying
Christmas should be about Jesus. So this one, is all about icons representing Mother and child. and a story of peace love being promoted through the Saints. It is nice to decorate the tree with a true Christmas message. I like every year to be a different tree. One year it was all teddy bears. One year all ribbons and stars. One year all Santas. One year all candles. One year all things pertaining to the birth... Donkeys lambs mangers wise men and of course Mary with Jesus and Joseph. One year angels, one year snowflakes.

 Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.
All about a young girls dreams and fantasies learning about life.

Hard Times

This is something I did and it turned out I think.

 Tess of D'uberville is a very nice classical movie.
I enjoyed it. I have the book and sure would love reading it again.
 Complications of Love in Society.

Have a nice day.

the great deception

This is interesting cause it says all the visions people see of the Virgin Mary and the crying Icons are a deception Before the end of times the Bible speaks of false gods prophets angels and that the only way to God is through his son. Today holograms are so real, that one cannot tell they are not real people. And Mary would not give a speech about herself and her importance, if she was speaking for her son. England told her people not to go to places like Syria where they will be in danger and can't be trusted not to become terrorists on their way back home People dont care about the country they live in and go anyway. They are so misguided so as to say when Jesus returns, he will make every one Muslim. Such beliefs can only conclude that when they come back, they might be trained assassins and Britain is right in believing something like this could happen. Jesus is so far away from the Islamic reality . He, for one thing , was a pacifist, a lamb led to slaughter. He would be more like Ghandi than Muhammad. He put himself into harms way but never his people. He said he would die so his word could live. He was a true leader. The fight was spiritual having to do with faith in the good. When you believe in good, you cannot do bad things,to hurt people. You walk through life in innocence. How many people can say they do that today? Do we need to look at our Charter of Rights and Freedoms again and change it so it becomes more effective in doing the job it was really intended to do, to promote good? Truth is the biggest sword anyone can carry. Truth is feared and hated. People fight to keep the lies but truth stands on its' own. Religion, as it pertains to Christ, is about truth. We have to remember why Christianity came into existence. It was because of the sadistic cruelty that existed whereby man lived in fear every day. When it comes to free countries, we stay in the middle of the road so balance exists and in this way, we keep peace. Once the balance is lost, trouble begins. xoxoxoxoxo

To Love Is To Sin

 Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the room. The teacher says, "Why are you arguing?" One boy answers, "We found a ten dollor bill and decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie." "You should be ashamed of yourselves," said the teacher, "When I was your age I didn't even know what a lie was!" The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher.
Oh the good ol days when we had to go to confession.

It was a nightmare for me.
What was I to confess?
Of course I always went to the 10 Command ments
and this was basically what I referred to, to confess from.

Not listening to my parents.
Getting angry.
ummm.................nose picking......ummm...putting elbows on the

But today I know I am going to hell for sure.

I still get angry or frustrated would be a better word and well..
I am still not listening to my parents
but then my kids dont listen to me either lol
(which is frustrating lol)

I eat too much . Drink too little.(in my opinion)

Sometimes the odd bad word pops out.
I like to bop my husband in the head at times
but then I think he's too little, too cute and funny to bop lol

Abhore housework.

Dislike  cooking.

Sex?  Well .........God better NOT be looking there . lol
Do priests really need to hear ALL the minute details?
This is where one can have fun making things up for them.
and for the alter boys listening behind the walls.

People tire me easily now.

Loss of patience listening to people with empty heads, talking about their rights.
 Don't they understand there is no such thing,
any more than there is freedom?
Most words are an illusion of existence or reality. We are all insane.
Oh and this word "Intolerance"
People are getting sick on this word.
You can't have a yes or no opinion anymore cause its intolerance.
A law = intolerance to something.
To say NO to pass a law is also intolerance.
The way its used today, you can't say no at all so everything has to be yes.
Then people get hurt and all heck breaks loose and you have to ask why?
If you are for tolerance..... then tolerate rape, killing, pedophilia, prostitution , drugs.
.... they get off anyway
because passing laws to stop them =  intolerance.

Irks me that people dont see all the love  and caring I hold inside of me
for the world and family and friends.

Sloth? Well not really. I like messy houses cause they are lived in
When I see a clean house it tells me people either live somewhere else
or this is just not a healthy home.
You need stuff to be the person that you are. Books memorabilia clothes papers...
 coffee stains, dirt....pets...
The toilet should have used towels and the tub should look like someone took a shower in it
and the waste basket should have at least used toilet paper rolls..

Argumentative?  Well I would call it debates and discussions which people don't like doing or dont know how to do. We did a lot of that growing up in school..
In fact, it was a teaching tool to teach you  to think both pro and con.

Hard to get a good discussion going cause people fly off the handle or sit in a daze cause it goes way past over their heads. Now these are the voters they want to day 18 and over and now they want them at 16.
What country do you live in son?
Vancouver. Oh ya? How do you get there from Alberta?
 Well, first you have to fly to California.....

Hey I heard they had some good bargains in California
Ya. I went to get a play station and they let you bargain.
Wow ! So how much did you get it for?
Well, they wanted 279.00 and I told them I would not pay more than 299.00 and they said SOLD!!
Her teenage son was having trouble mastering the fine points of balancing his new checking account. "The bank returned the check you wrote to the sporting goods store," she said. "Oh good," he said, "Now I can use it to buy some stereo equipment!"

Liberals! They are raising Liberals in schools today.

I get... don't talk to her. You just get her going. lol
My sons friends have a gas laughing while my sons hide in shame. lol

When I was a kid I was shy.

So I learned to speak up. Now I get:
You are talking too loud.

I answer irked... THAT"S CAUSE YOU CAN'T HEAR ME!!!!

I use accents a lot, cause if you don't, people dont understand you.
Russel Peters made a mint exposing just that, using his East Indian Dad
and the arabic/chinese languages when they speak S' English.

Crossing the border the US side always says I have an accent.
Where are you from?
My Answer: From Canada Eh?.

Then I say: You have an accent too. Where are you from?
Should you be working at the border?
R U letting in people you shouldn't,with the wrong accents?
I really want an American at the border.
A tourist in LA is walking through Chinatown when he sees a sign saying, ‘Hans Olafsen’s Laundry’. Curious, he walks into the shop and sees an old Chinese gentleman sitting in the corner. ‘How did this place get a name like Hans Olafsen’s Laundry?’ asks the tourist. The old man says, ‘It’s named after me. I’m Hans Olafsen.’ ‘That’s an unusual name for a Chinese man,’ observes the tourist. ‘Yes,’ says the old man, ‘But when I came to America I was standing in the immigration line behind a man called Hans Olafsen. And when they asked me my name, I said, Sam Ting.’
Our teachers put a lot of stress on DICTION
So using diction, turns into an accent,cause people today slur their words
talking too fast.
We had to talk slow, so people could hear and understand you.
You slow down and read with emphasis on question marks and exclamation marks.etc..
Today you look and sound like a moron doing that but I have to say,
we lose a lot by NOT doing it.

So this is another reason why Rap is irksome to the ear.
You just want to slap the guy around silly.
The rain in Spain..............
 Do u really wanna hurt me? Do u really wanna make me cry.....
I don't hear a word you're sayin, so why bother tryin to make me understan?
Q.- What is Method Man's favourite novel?
A: Tical a Mockingbird.
Q: What did Dr. Dre say when judging a vegetable show?
A: "Word to these hyped-ass leeks and dope beets".
Basically, I love life.
I love nature, especially the air that I breathe and water and the critters I share it all with.
I think in my past life, if there is such a thing,  I must have been hanged  because I don't like anything around my neck.
In water, I wish I had gills so I could swim forever.

I love sunshine , dancing and singing and flowers and people and peace............
I love to hear laughter. celebration, children, books, knowledge, space
I love artwork symphonies crafts. engineering. fashion. fireworks.............

If you want to get through to alzheimers and parkinsons patients this is how you do it, through
question marks, exclamation points, colors....These are people , sitting, very much alive, trapped inside their heads not knowing how to get out. Stimulate their nerve endings and they find ways.

Ask me: What don't you love?......
 and really I have to say, there is nothing I don't love.

Some things I may not like but only because of love.; As a result of love.

I guess I am very guilty of being SELFISH to wanting and holding on to all my senses
so I could live and feel , touch and desire because these are the things which keep my spirit alive.

My spirit can live forever on good , if be it, sinful memories.

I am a person full of sin and on judgement day, that's all I will ever be able to tell my Father.
 I can't blame the devil saying HE made me do it like Flip Wilson does. (what happened to him?)

You .......GOD...........created me to love and to love to sin.

Take My Love

Leslie Caron is exceptional in this movie
The Glass Slipper
I always liked her movies anyway.
Here she plays Ella from the Cinderella story.

Leslie reminds me of this French teacher we had from France.
She also had short curly hair and a special aura of grace and beauty around her.
She was tiny and muscular , very fit and when she walked into a room,
well all eyes were upon her.
Suddenly we all wanted to learn French lol
She was the kind of lady we only see in movies.

It was a sad day when we came to school and were told that she died
coming back from skiing in the Laurentians.
I wish I could remember her name .
We had her for such a short time but we all cried like she was a
member of the family.
It was a sad loss. She died far away from home and
she had everything to live for.
It took a while to get over the shock of it.

My Dad never allowed me to go to the Laurentians.
My parents were very strict till I was 18 and then just let me go.
Its funny cause I never got into trouble as much as they could have.
My Dad loved cars and in those days driving 120 MILES per HOUR
was nothing. Try doing that today.
Back then we saw our parents as Gods. They could do no wrong.
 Today looking back, mine
were just two normal people
making mistakes like every one else.

Have a good one.

Fancy Lace Baby

I finished this little outfit on Canada Day It is for a newborn to 3 month but
it  took a while to make because of all the lacy stitching.

 As  I was making it, I thought it's a good thing its not for a big kid cause it
 would take a month to do lol But it was well worth it.
It is soft and lovely.
The lady SarahSweethearts gave the pattern and said she makes this dress
for charity and hopes others can do the same.
 I can just imagine the joy to get a dress like this.
I keep thinking little boys get left out here cause they just get guy things. lol

The hat was simple enough. I garnished it with flowers and buttons
and although it distressed me to add another color to the white dress
I thought if I just embellished it with a few flowers and the same buttons, the hat
could go with the outfit.

Catching flies was fun today to feed the venus fly trap. I even found a few
little spiders but they never made it cause my husband hit them too hard
with the fly swatter.At night I should be able to get a few mosquitoes.
Funny how a plant gets two people to work for its' keep lol

Clara Hughes bicycled 11 thousand miles across Canada for Mental Health .
She said one in five are affected by some form of mental illness  .
This was shocking to hear.
One in five people?? WHY?
This should concern all Canadians and even Americans since we share one continent.
What do we have to do to change this?

Today was grass cutting day. It is so nice when the lawn is so short you can
play golf on it.
You don't even care about the weeds because you can't see them.
I am glad people don't use insecticides and pesticides on their lawn anymore.
But it sure grows like a weed and by next week it will need another cutting.

We dont remove the cut grass cause it is the best thing for it. It just goes
back into Mother Nature, self fertilizing.

It's nice to be able to sit back and enjoy the back yard and sunshine once in a while.

Have a good one.

Canada Eh?



Well the US lost to Belgium. The US had the best goalie ever but
even he finally could not stand alone. It was good to see one of my
sons US soccer players out there, in an actual Fifa game. We even
saw his grand father watching the game. Too bad my sons US team
 was not playing. They had it together and would have pulled through.
 Things change.
Have a good one

These are so cute and fun to make and add to a little basket
for kids to play with or to put into a big bowl in your family room
or to add around a plant in a wide clear vase or even place into the dining room hutch.
I think they would make nice toys to hang in  a childs crib or book case.

Sitting outside, doing these little  things is very healthy for both adults and kids.
I remember sitting by my Dad when he fiddled with his motors and cars.
He loved cars but he would not teach me. He said I should go wear a dress
and be a lady keeping my hands white.
This is why women wore white gloves and slept in gloves full of creme at night.
Kept the germs away too.
So apart from handing him tools and washing the car, I spent my time curling my hair.
It didn't curl much then and it doesnt curl today.
 Teasing was in style and along with wonderful hair spray. I managed to make some nice doos on myself and my Mom . She loved me doing her hair.
I also loved the layer look when they used a blade to cut the hair. It did give it a nice look.
 Most hair dressers today are not taught this method of cutting hair.
So when I see an old guy I head straight for him/her.

I got into dress making watching my grand mother cut and sew. She was a professionally taught lady
and knew the world of design. If it wasn't for the wars and revolutions, I am sure she would have done something wonderful with her life and talent.
 As it happens, getting nice material to work with was not easy and very expensive but it sure beats the throw away clothing we spend tons on today.

Women today rather spend on cheap clothing ( me included) than buy a sewing machine, not helping the local apparel industry at all.. I love sewing but it costs me a lot more buying thread and material to work with ,than going to the store and buying it ready made. Imagine buying a pair of jeans for 5 dollars. The jean material you would need to make the jeans, costs more than that ,plus the pattern plus the time to make them, plus the expense of buying the machine.
Makes me wonder how they can do this with shipping costs salaries plus the material.
Something is wrong there .
 It means we can't get supplies here, made in our own homeland.

Today lace is not in fashion but as I discover the world of lace, it is an interesting world
with so much to learn and should not be limited to bridal gowns. Women used to sit making it, chatting over social evenings. I had an Italian neighbor who did lace piecework at home.
It was a nice past time for her and made her a few dollars.

 I love the Irish lace and found a link where it was shown how they take all the pieces and sew them together to make one beautiful piece of garment.
I course I would cut the garment to be made before laying down the lace as it is time consuming to make but well worth it in the end result. There is a big difference in lace made by machine and lace made by hand.

I also got myself a knitting machine but was disappointed to see that it did not make the same kind of
texture a hand made knit piece made.
So unless you want to hide the under side behind some other material, it would not look nice turned over or rolled.

So much to learn and keep busy .
Sure beats yelling and screaming on the street.

Venus! Oh Venus!

A new pet it seems or so like one.
A Venus Fly Trap has beholden my home
So far it ate one fly and it has to be supplied
with two a week.

How amazing it is when it catches something so fast.
One almost wants to have a chat with it.

Hope you have a pleasant week end.

Balling it with the Mayor of Caster bridge

These balls are so much fun to make and great for your animals
since they are not toxic. Add a happy face to it and it will
cheer you up as well.

The Mayor of Casterbridge is  a tragic story written by Thomas Hardy in 1886.
It is about a man who drank a lot and sold his wife and child for 5 guineas ( 1.5 lbs x 5 or 7.5 lbs).
When he sobered up he realized what he had done but could not find them . 
He vowed never to drink again.

Time passed and soon he became the Mayor of Casterbridge 
doing very well for himself.
The story continues as he falls in love with a girl but could not
 marry her as he had a secret that his wife might still be alive.
As it happens she was and  she returned with his daughter, when the sailor
 who bought her died.
Well the saga continues how two women wanted him and how
 he lost everything when the truth about him came out and died.

When you compare with todays' world where no one cares who is married to who,
not much sleep is lost over it.
 Having a fling with a married person or even living with one doesn't affect ones' job
 or social status. You can even make a buck in social media on it.
Today people are not ashamed of breaking up families with children,
 as they were in the past.
There is no suffering or guilt about doing so.
One just moves on.

Trial and Death of Socrates.

One for the money.
 Two for the show.
 Three to get ready and
Four to go.

Platos' Trial and Death of Socrates was an interesting story.
I could not believe that a man like Socrates, could be sentenced to death for thinking and asking questions and teaching students to think.

He did not believe in the dieties of that time.
His death resulted from drinking hemlock in Athens in 399 BC.

Apparently none of Socrates works survived.
It is only through the eyes of Plato, that he is kept alive for so many years
as a philosopher and scholar.

Socrates  was not a follower of Democracy or mob rule..
He believed policy should be made by people with genuine knowledge and
 professional competence.

Men who deserved the name of "honorable man" should rule.

I like to compare this thought to today, when we elect people for their acting abilities,
 rather than knowledge and competence and actual love for the country
 they become leaders of.

This book gives lots to think about.

The First Circle in Life.

Gnomes are considered to be protectors of homes
so people put them around their yards as little men
who could not be underestimated.

The First Circle was a book given to me by my uncle.
It was an eye opener as I had never thought of such things
going on in the world before. I could not even imagine it.
The book of course was written by Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

It foretells a story of life in a gulag under Stalins' rule.
It was a prison for academics, technicians, engineers,
physicists etc.. learned men and women who were given privileges
to do work in their field.
The rules of course were very strict and breaking any one of them
would lead to automatic  dispersal to Siberia where life
was very inhospitable.

I think it is still a good read.

Lysistrata an Amazon of Women

Lysistrata by Aristophanes, is a gender based,comedy.
Lysistrata showed her power as a woman, by getting
all the women to give oaths to  deny sex to men so they would stop the
 Peloponnesian War, sooner than later.
The old women then seized the Acropolis since this is where all the money was held to fund the war.
The women in those days were not considered as rational beings and in constant need of protection.
When I read this book as a kid I thought boy, if women took over the world, as mothers, there would be no more wars. No mother wants to see her child dying in battle.
When Putin said he knows better than to argue with a woman I thought AHA!
the air of Lysistrata is still in the air.
Men actually fear women. lol
Lysistrata is an old classic but well worth reading.

Awareness Be Blind

Awareness ...

Of life, breath, freedom, love, touch, smell...

To  time and stopping to smell the roses....
Stopping and tasting the salt of the earth and sea.

To inhaling wisdom on lifes' journey
Of transforming into a spiritual giant
While seeing yourself engulfed and consumed
By the reality of insignificance, in the scheme of things.

To open ones' eyes to the spoken word
Heard only by the heart and soul within,
Being blind no more..

Of pleading for more pain and suffering
 This world inflicts
In constant trials for balance ,
To see and know more.

SEE me..........LOVE me
For I am here... waiting, with
TOOLS sharpened for life.
A Lady's Life.

New is Good!

New Is Good.

A New birth, marriage job , friends, house, pet, book, clothes, haircut , faith ..
The list goes on as we march through life exploring, finding
NEW on our list to inspire us.

New is good but once we get hold of it what do we do with it?
The responsiility, the up keep of new , which quickly becomes old and boring,
becomes difficult but it is here where we begin to develop (or not), character
of spirit and who we really are, begins to show.

Do we throw away NEW?
Or do we recycle and rejuvenate and make new again?

Just looking at BC's lush forests,
the answer rings true.

Have a great Sunday.

Chuck Wagon Canary.

I had a canary named Chicklet.
He had a moppy head, fluffy wings and legs.
He was a darling and sang all day long.
I had him perched over my kitchen sink, behind a window,
 surrounded by spider plants. He was very happy there
and so was I doing  dishes and making supper.
He made chores seem like fun. Back then, being young,
love was every where around me.

The Chinese love surrounding themselves with song birds.
They would bring their cages into a park setting and
 hang them on tree branches and while they socialized,
a judge sat and judged the bird who had the best disposition
and sang all day long and it got the blue ribbon.

Many times I'd walk and find these cages hanging on tree branches
and it was quite lovely to see.
I wish we would do the same thing here,
but not many people are into birds and well, probably the
 weather is not the best for them either.

I found this Chuck Wagon link for recipes, from the old west.
I thought it was interesting.
It comes from a time when things were scarce to buy and when people
worked herding cattle on grassy plains.
Women had to know how to keep food from spoiling. There were no
refridgerators back then.

One might get a notion to try one of these recipes.
I know I had one for vinegar pie crust I liked and I found one similar
here. Would be good to have lying around in case
 we end up with no power.
Kinda like survival skills.

Tiny Steps Moving Forward

Adjustable hat and booties.

I finished these today. They were not hard to do and the results
sure enlighten you.
The day was dull.
We waited and waited for the rain and finally a few
drops did honor us with their presence.
We made bouillabaisse 
 today with seafood with a side of rice, tomatoes and cucumbers.

For supper I had this fresh arab bread and made a pizza on it.
It took next to no time at all since the oven was already preheated.
Nothing like home made.
I looked through all my recipes I am trying to write them down in a book
because trusting a computer to keep your stuff is asking for trouble.
Something goes wrong, you lose it all.So I try to keep copies as I go along.

Apart from watching the world cup in soccer nothing much new.
Spain is out so I will not win  my lottery .
Filipe the 6th has become Spains' new King how ever.
This will give them other things to celebrate.
I think it is a good idea to keep people busy with celebrations.
Young people especially will grow with many good memories.

In BC we are having a problem with the oil pipe line.
BC people don't seem to want it saying it's not worth the risk.
If cleaning will be anything like the roads we have here,
it would be next to impossible to do it.
Under normal circumstances it might not be a bad
idea but with the volatile world we live in politically
and all the enemies the oil companies make with the people
it just takes one person.....
I don't understand why they play so many head games with
gas prices. It's just not right.

The Butterfly Effect

These are the latest butterflies. I made a few more since
 these pics were taken. They are so much fun to make and
 great to sew on many projects as well as pins for hair and
blouses. I thought they would make for great napkin holders.

Every doily could use one with a leaf and flower.
 Little girl dresses and hats and chokers for teens.

 It's amazing how thread made such a hit throughout the ages.
 Women specially, love to work with it and create so many
 amazing things. Thread has become the oldest art form.

 So now they are added to my bag of flowers waiting to be used.
 When I went to Walmart, they had little pouches of about 6 little
machine made flowers, leaves etc.. for hobbies and they
 charged 2.99 a pouch.
 Ok ........professional but not craft.
 Nothing beats hand made craft projects.
 The old west was won by piecework.
Life is lived through piecework.

 I don't think anything worth something is machine done
because it just doesn't have the spirit behind . This is why
 I get discouraged when people throw things away which
 belong to their family because it was made by loving hands,
 especially for them.

 People throw things away and thus have become themselves
 throw aways.
 Lost souls who flutter away like these butterflies.

"When I count my blessings
I count you Twice"

But if you are looking for excuses
You have not far to look

Excuses flounder and surround you
Directing which way you will roam

If you're looking for excuses
Life shows you many lonely roads

Many lead you to no exits ,
Dead ends, just to start again

But lifes' all about exploring
For life is always about spring.

One day it's laughter, mirth , and honey
One day the tears flow without end

One day you dance as light as fairies
Upon green leaves in soft, sweet winds.

One day you plunge  from heavens' crevice
One day frustration makes you scream

Excuses, they always surround you
But truth is "ONE and ONE for all"

Life As We Know It.

New born outfit with flower appliques.

A red Peonie in my garden with yellow center.

It is a blessing to have things like this to look at as opposed
 to what is going on over seas. The people who want peace
are living hell on earth and all for what?

What an idiot I am lol
I finally see what kind of dog I have

It's a Havanese.
She is so different from the Sichon I have
This video describes it to a T.
There are four types of Bichon:
 Maltese, Bolognaise, Havanese and Tenerife and they did originate in the Mediterranean area.
She is so talkative and absolutely adorable that all you want to do is cuddle her.
Well Finally I know but then who were her parents?
Both parents had much longer legs.

I guess I will never know.

To Pan or Not to Pan

Latest hat with buttons. I added buttons to the booties so have a set now.

Today is a beautiful day. Made french toast for break fast.
 Son power washed the balcony so it is nice and clean now.
He took down all the flower pots from last year.

My hibiscus continues to flower but the flower can only be enjoyed a day.
So sad.

 The news continues to be distasteful.

  I got 4 small metal rounds to cook things in the pan with,
so they keep the round shape. Each piece was 1.45 so I thought man,
 highway robbery and here I was throwing cans away from sauces and beans.

 So now I use the can opener to cut off both ends and then
I cut the can in two and now I have a lot more round shape containers
 I can use in a pan to make eggs, scones, pancakes, and what ever.

I thought to next time, cut the coffee cans into 4 round pieces to make pan pizzas.
This way you can make 4 at a time either in 4 pans or in the oven.

Heck you can even make 6 or 8 individual sized pizzas at a time for those soccer
games people come to watch on TV.
It's not hard to do and recycles the can and you don't feel bad when they get lost.

The days fly by. I slept so well last night with the ceiling fan and woke up refreshed.
 I know the designers say they are old fashioned but for me they are the best.
They keep the house cool and you don't have to worry about opening doors to
let in fresh air like you do with air con.
I play with my beautiful dogs who cheer me up big time. Bella now uses Tanyas' box
and collects shoes balls plastic bottles she likes to crackle, etc..
When Tanya wants to find something , she goes to the box to steal it from Bella.
They keep each other busy this way all day. lol
Its funny cause Bella comes and picks up one shoe at a time,
 carries it somewhere in the house
and then comes to get the other one and places them together.
 So even though the shoes
disappear, when you find them, they are together. lol

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Poppie Taco Days.

This is a better picture

Beautiful Poppies have popped up this year.

 We have beautiful days to enjoy this past week.
 I got everything to make tacos . Even the Guacamole.
So this is what we will have today.
Made another hat last night .
This makes 8 baby sets put away in plastic bags.

Today will be car cleaning day. My poor car is neglected.
Every one wants to drive it but no one volunteers to clean it.

Hubby got a scooter and we are enjoying it.
I have yet to try it out. They are great to go to the beach
or to get milk and bread or even just to ride for no reason at all.
However the cars are disrespectful and so one needs to
ride in the bicycle lane or in groups.
We see more and more seniors enjoying them.
Nothing beats them for gas mileage.

Well have yourselves a nice day.

The Flower of Gender

A small flower stands alone, amongst a crowd of weeds, trying to smother its existence.

 Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act or Bill C is being argued against as unconstitutional.

 Although the subject of prostitution is as old as we can remember historically, it has always been a trade which hurt people. It is curious that people would fight for its continued existence, in a society such as ours.

 Sex is a beautiful thing but obsession with it, is not healthy. I remember the precious days of youth when young people exchanged glances and blushed and sweet love grew out of this endeavor to last a life time. I remember how we laughed watching PORKIES the movie.
Today, our society seems to feed off of sex as opposed to love and it affects children, who begin to have sex at an earlier age even when doors are open to them to find there is more to life than sex .
Then they grow up angry and one day poof! Explode and begin to kill every one around them.

 Let's face it, where do uncontrollable urges in sex lead to?

 Stopping Prostitution Unconstitutional?

 Is killing also constitutional? There are demands being made today to say it is.

 Prostitution sure advocates it in more ways than one. It kills healthy young bodies and souls. It turns people into cold uncaring individuals, zombies.

 The money made from it, is usually used to obtain drugs, to forget what one had to do to obtain it . In a social democracy,where we give aid to those in need, there is no need to make money in this fashion anymore. If we made these laws for nothing then what is the point? Lower the taxes and legalize prostitution.

 Prostitution furthermore opens a society where fathers unknowingly have sex with daughters and brothers with sisters, because of sperm donation and having children born to women who dont know who the Father is.

 The whole issue of sex has become some what corrupt and distasteful and it's pushed every where. The sooner virtual sex becomes a reality, the better.

This way no one gets hurt abused sick or denied and no one has to break any laws pertaining to sex.

 In the mean time, supporting good causes is a better use of laws than using them by society for self destruction reasons.

 The constitution, as all laws, is meant to save and protect people, not help in self destruction because that falls into criminal intent.

 If everything is lawful then why have government and laws?
Why have a constitution?
Why have a country?
 Without government , laws and order, we are open to forsake the freedom we so enjoy, to be overtaken by countries such as China and Russia and
 live in the gulags they will provide for us for the purpose of re education.

 One must work towards the better good and the better good,
 is in keeping our families and children safe and loving the gift of life and breath.
There should be no need for prostitutes or their trade.
Our job is to make sure the flower does not stand alone
 fighting for its survival but ubiquitous, blooming with many friends.

Spring of Life

Every year she comes up so beautiful with her sisters.

Every year I keep gazing at nature and all her splendor.
One wishes ones eyes never had to close to all the nice
 things out there.
Man has destroyed much, built much, changed much and
continues to outdo himself.
I wonder where it will all end?
Will the flowers covering graves finally die?
Will they adapt to changes?
The floods? The cold? The heat? The fires? The chemicals?
Energy which flesh cannot tolerate..sound ears cannot hear,
eyes which will never see...?

It has to be assumed that if it exists, it must be for a purpose to be used.
To survive , man has to adapt, as nature always does, to something stronger,
better, using everything at her disposal.
She never debates the right or wrong of anything.

We test ourselves every day at a great cost to life.
We experiment. We fail and try again and as God and faith in him would have it,
we know the answers are out there to open and unfold unto us.

Man will prevail as it is his destiny to prevail but along with him,
 he carries the active spirit
which dares not rest and with each birth seeks new adventures and
 answers to questions that have no end.

"Let the enemy persecute my soul and take it
Yes, let him tread down my life upon the earth and lay mine honour in the dust"
Psalms 7:5
"What is man that thou art mindful of him?and the son of man that thou visitest him?
For thou has made him a little lower than the angels and hast crowned him
with glory and honour."
Psalms 8 4:5

Man refutes God because he does not understand that God is everything and thus man in God.
Therein lie the answers waiting to be unfolded, only at the will of the one who knows
 which chamber he has put them in.
For there are many chambers in my Fathers' house Jesus said.

The stories speak in riddles and one cannot but help to rejoice, as we begin to
understand them more and more and......more
 throughout the ages always living in the Spring of Life.

Perfect Day for Flowers

This pretty dress I finished today.
I woke up to this beautiful hibiscus flower. It made my day. xoxoxox

All's in Bloom

These pink Carnations are lasting more than a week and still look soo good.

The weather outside is gorgeous and the grass is growing lol

Bella wants me to play with her and sits trying to interact all the time
I have never had such a blabber mouth dog before. lol
She is soo smart. I wish I could talk dog language.
 I have to try to teach her tricks.

Life  thus seems to be all in bloom both inside and outside.

So as not to cook, my husband takes me out for Donair to this new place that opened up.
They fill up their donairs so thick for 4 dollars and you can also get the falafel which is very healthy for you.

We played with Bella. She is like a real baby requiring all your attention.
I think if there was an after life, she must have been a person.

My dress is coming along. I just have the sleeves left to do.
It is so pretty. I will have to make another one.
Little girls dressed like this, are to die for, CUTE!!!
I think if they don't have things to wear under neath (which they do) a little
crinolyn would be nice to add to this outfit.
I can't wait to see it finished..

Tea for Two Tidbits.

I have been busy enjoying the sunshine, cutting grass, rewriting
 my recipes and cooking new meals. I
still need to transplant my house flowers with fresh soil.
No time for tea and tidbits although I would love to have these little
people wearing my clothes around me. lol
When I was a kid I had my dolls and story books and I was in love with the black
shoes in one of them. I thought, when I grow up, I will have a little girl
and buy her these same shoes. Well I never did cause I have boys. lol

The top pinafour was so easy and fun to make and turned out
so pretty with the blue button. It would fit a 6 month baby.

The pink out fit was also easy and fun to make using cluster stitches.
I especially love the hat and the fact that it is a yoke pattern.
 The button on the hat and the sweater is a daisy.
It is certain to keep a little one toasty warm.

I love these as well. The lacy hat and booties are soooo soft.
I will have to make another lacy hat since I have two sets of booties.
The top of the booties have picot edgings.
I could not make pom poms for them .
Booties are so much fun to make for tiny feet.

I love this pinafour. The colors are soft, as well as the piece itself.
I could caress it all day.The picture did not come out well so I will
have to redo it. I am sure it is for a 6 mo to a year old baby.

This little shell outfit is for a new born with silver buttons
and picot edgings. I can't imagine my son today but he did fit
 t shirts as small as

So much for the outfits I made so far.

Today  was a somewhat productive morning.
Put the chicken and potato with okra to bake.
Rewrote some recipes into my journal. I have some really good egg recipes.

I found my old mayo recipe using dry mustard. I used to love making that mayo.
Its french. Nothing you buy in stores today compares to it.

Lately I carry my recipes with me cause I forget what needs to be put into them once I get to the store. So when I get there I look up what I want to make and then buy for that day.
Began a new christening dress in crochet . I already did the neck line and think now the sleeves and skirt will start. I did not check the pattern.

I love christening dresses. We used to have such beautiful ones when I was a kid and today they keep it simple.
But I would love to get the lace and sew a few the way they were made before.

Really have to get that sewing machine out again.

Bella is becoming a pain in the ass lol
Every time I lie down she comes and barks at me to get up.
I have to put my feet up but she says no put them down and then she sleeps beside them. lol

I really love this dog She is so expressive and her young spirit is very attractive to my old one. She keeps me smiling . All young life is beautiful because of its' innocence.

Beau is happy getting his walkies and Tanya just has her eyes peeled to everything the little one wants or has so she can take it away. Lately it is the squeeky ball.

The little one is already longer than she is and quite fluffy. I keep thinking she is a black angora cat. then I see she is a dog. lol
Yesterday we came across a beautiful bandit looking cat.
It had a black bandits' band around the eyes and the rest of it was gold.

Such a beautiful cat. I will have to take a picture of it if I see it again.
 I have never seen one like it before and well Bella saw it too and flipped out. lol

Yup, the old cat thought, well this ain't good and casually walked away.
This Bella will have to learn that cats are out of bounds.
If this was Tatty, he would stand his ground.
The other animals were raised with cats so for them a cat means nothing but
 for Bella this is all new.

Hope you  are all happy and healthy keeping busy with the spring weather.

My Thai

 Thailand is truly a beautiful place to visit.
I always loved these houses the people lived in.
The life style seemed so quiet and peaceful.
If only places like this were not disturbed by
The richest people in places like this were those who could
afford electricity for a light bulb or a TV set.
Today with solar energy, every one can afford electricity
and have the best of both worlds.

We craved for Thai food so found this little place in Langley,BC.
It's called:    My Thai.
 It's not a fancy place but the food is good. The prawns were absolutely so fresh,
its just as if they just caught them.
It's on one of these little streets where cars are parked sideways
on both sides like one would see in a cowboy town where you tie up your horse
in front of establishments.
They had a nice little art gallery which also offered
lessons to stay alive. My Thai also offers cooking lessons to keep the public
Out of the way places like this, could use a little more advertising.
Unlike White Rock which has an ocean to attract people, they just have their
little special kind of attractions worth coming to see.

I think we would go to My Thai just for the Tom Yum soup they make
with rice. It is absolutely delicious!

This link is a recipe for what we had I think.

Man, As Innocent as a Babe

My beautiful lacy baby hat.

Lev Kulikov seems to be a spiritual educator I found on you tube.
He tries to explain faith as consisting of two parts :
Intellect and emotion.
This then falls into how we see faith and how we work to keep it pure and clean.
Intellect and emotion affects every man. If man is not of the right faith or mind, it is difficult to get him out of the hole he is in.
The first thing needed, is to understand that we are not separate from God. Even Karma ( which is a collection of mistakes affecting our health and destiny or future) is not given all at once by the creator, because if it was, we would live a total of six years before we self destruct. 
To enjoy life longer than six years , we have to learn organization and self control and God gives us time to do this. He watches over each individual and so we are always in contact with the creator so our emotion and health can heal from our mistakes, through wisdom. 
The creator regulates mans' karma or extra sensory perception.
A sick man comes to get healed of an illness. He leaves and then comes in again. Why?
 Because the karma program changes in each man with reality of health and destiny.
To stop all these karma programs, is the only way to totally heal a persons intellect and emotion.
We can ask God to do it and he can but instead he gives us karma because something is not right.
Man has to take charge of his life, clean it, put it in order and the first thing required, is faith in God, that he exists and that he has no other objectives other than love for mankind.
The rest man can do with as he wishes. He can take what he can and leave what he can't, push what he can and deal with his existing emotions.
The question becomes then is does man affect faith or does faith affect man?Who is the boss?
The answer is that man is God and King who does what he can.
When a man gets a cold he goes home and takes medicine and heals. When he has emotional problems affecting his health, he seeks help and is given instruction to do this by cleaning up his soul faith and intellect.
Emotions live in space which develop creation, yielding intellect, deciding what a man must do.
Space could be destructive to the building of life.
We must know how to build our faith using 4 things:
right : that everything begins with right beginning with mental creation
Physical realization
Emotion which is electrical
thoughts which is a magnetic field
When we remember we remember in emotion, the electrical part.
God is part of the living reality whereby man understands that he cannot live without him.
Once he understands this his life becomes easier because it has structure.
Harmony is a system existing on many infinite levels.
Parasites live at the lowest level.
Parasites live in what he call hell but the existence of hell is our own creation and is separate from what is.
for example:  A man can eat a mushroom but a mushroom can't eat a man.
Suppose one grows on a finger and we ask why? Well this is because the blood does not reach that part of the finger to give it the blood chemicals it needs to kill the mushroom.
Another system of Anarchy is also a criminal faith.
The middle ground between heaven and hell exists on the 9th-10th level of infinite harmony.

Physically man has a point of termination If someone tells him he will physically live forever he is lying.--
Life is a spirit from God. Its a system with a soul and body
The spirit controls the body.
It has a memory where emotion is kept in many places.
Knowledge contained in the body and spirit yields emotion.
Our purpose in life is education where we learn to correct mistakes through passing an exam.
Info in and of itself is not education unless it is understood.
Worry for example can result in other problems.
Man doesn't understand that he is King over his situations or problems in life.
Spiritual problems requires passing an exam through learning to understand it.
Family and relatives try to teach but learning can take place anywhere.
A mother has a child it tries to teach but sees the child is not learning.
The child does not understand the mechanism of life.
The child does not understand faith
or maybe the child does and the teacher doesn't.
I like the way this man explains things in lay mans terms and this is why he is called a man of wisdom and man who can pass on understanding to other people.
I always found that turning every problem in life into an element of education helps a lot in mental harmony.
Everything bad that happens or crosses your path in life, is about
educating you to become a better person.

Every Mom gets a Red Red Rose
for knowing the passion of what
having and loving children is.

For what is a Mother without the golden hands
caressing her child and leading it by the hand
into a world so foreign, preparing it for the struggles ahead.

What is a Mother if not the aged lady who sits watching her children
with old  devoted eyes, a Mother who would still lay down her
life for each and every one of them.

A Red Red Rose for Mother
The Guardian of strength and power.
The giver of life and love
Preparing a destiny for another.

Little Bit of Lovin

This little new born 0-3 mo. set I made with silver buttons
is so cute.
I got a really nice designer, dark gray ribbon for the booties,
and the hat in the right hand corner.

The hat in the right hand corner is larger so I will keep it for another set.
for the 3-6 month babies.

They are fun to make cause they don't take much time and it keeps me busy
passing time.

It is raining a lot this end of the country. The grass is really long and
 needs a good cutting but we are waiting for it to dry a bit or
 the lawn mower will not cut it. I need a good garden tractor so
 I can do it myself since pushing a mower would be out of the question.

I always take the skins off the chicken . Usually I roll them up and freeze then
and then chop them and
give them to the birds outside in winter.
Now what I did was roll them up and put them into another container to roast with the chicken.
They dry out and cool and now my Rovers have home made chicken chewies.
Pays to make them at home.
With a big dog I guess you would have to roll out a lot of skins to make it thick and long
but with my little girls one chicken leg makes a nice tid bit to chew on.

Hope you all have a nice day.
