“On this Day” Repost – I don’t do Math

I may have mentioned once of twice my favourite FB feature – NO?  Oh, well it is “on this Day” – and on this day in 2014 I wrote the following post.  Strangely enough, today my FB feed has been full of posts of a similar nature; learning to be, living in the moment, being happy.  The Universe does work in mysterious ways – and it pays to pay attention unless you want a kick up the backside.

*****************************

What does it all add up too?
the seconds of my life,
count them off in gratitude,
daughter, sister, mother, wife.

No number can ever tally,
the measure of our worth,
the answer is in living well,
each day upon the earth.

“On this Day” Repost – The Dog

Facebook has one good feature – “On This Day”, and it’s reminded me why I’m feeling a bit …”off” … today.  My original post can be found here.

*************************

The dog takes me for a walk,   
pulling against the leash,
strong and determined,
straining to break free.

We only walk in winter,
the dog and I,
weather grey and gloomy,
under short day skies.

My dog is black.

Exploring Acrylic Pouring

Yes, I meant it to rhyme!

I had fun today playing around with acrylic pouring.  I’ve been watching videos of it on Youtube for the last few days and decided I wanted to have a go.  Pretty happy with how it went, and think I may be doing this again real soon.

My favourite is the last one (excuse the bad photo, the lighting wasn’t good in the kitchen by the time I finished doing it).  It is true fire engine red, with tones of black, and I was so happy to see the cells form that large.
