What better way to enjoy the elements of this season with snow and cuddles? Think about it – Bed…snow-ball fights – and anything else our eager adult brains can think of. energetic, fun. You? Willing to embrace this snow/season with me.
Close your eyes and imagine the most magical December holiday snow covered cities and towns, thousands of tiny lights, the aroma of holiday fare, and of course snow. The childlike joy you feel when the first snowflakes start falling. A desire to relax, have fun, enjoy the indoors & outdoors… Open your eyes and come find your winter fairy tale with me…
Silently we lie there, staring at each other. Eventually I move; rolls.. closer to you.. snuggling my head into the crook of your shoulder _ my hand on your chest. Carefully you drape your arm around my waist and comb your fingers through out my body while my other hand touches your ????
I love Christmas. I love the snow-themed everything, even when I was living in Northern Ontario, and Santa and elves and reindeer and snowmen and candy canes. Yes, I even love the non-stop playing of Christmas music for two months
Most of all, I love getting together with my family and friends. – eating Christmas meals, singing Christmas carols together, gossiping and laughing at each other. It’s tremendous fun.I love my Christmas tree as well.
I don’t love Christmas shopping, or the over consumption, frenzied malls!!!!
Bah humbug! I love Christmas, but the shopping. in malls has got to go. I do a bit of on line shopping & quaint local stores.
I love the idea of giving to people you love, but that idea has been twisted. Now people go out in a mad rush to shop, like ravenous vampires feasting on new blood. We shop for a month, rip apart the packaging one morning, and then forget about it the next day. Is this about giving, or buying?
Again, I’m in love with giving … but do we need to buy to give? We seem to think that buying is the solution to any problem, but that has lead to a society that is deeply in debt and piled high with needless stuff. We can find other ways to give.
Find hope. Christmas has so much potential to be about so much more than buying – it can be a season of hope, renewal, loved ones, inspiration, contemplation. Talk to your family about this – how can we find ways to be hopeful, thankful, cooperative? How can we be more present instead of worried about getting presents?
It’s starting to get cold, and that means sweater weather, apple cider and a lot of holiday activities are on the way. What better way to welcome the season than by breaking out the Christmas decor, and stringing up your house with Christmas lights
Some people are Christmas enthusiasts who can’t wait – some are not.
Where has this year gone? It has gone by so fast, and now the holiday season is upon us! Ready or not! Tell me, have you begun Christmas decorating already?
I like to give from the heart (not out of obligation or duty), spend time with people I resonate with (rather than feel forced to interact with) and be my genuine self (rather than be what others want me to be).
Life to me isn’t about getting and having, but it is instead about giving and being around people I love.
I hope you’ll join me in remembering those who have also laid down their lives for our freedom. Let’s never forget the brave men and women who served the cause of freedom in the past, nor those whose service today enables us to continue to live and worship freely.
We need to be reminded, to think and to reflect as a society and then appreciate what was done and continues to be done for us!
“The veterans always left us with one consistent message. It was their wish that we never experience what they had to endure but rather to strive together toward peace.”
Phew! What a month October was. I had so much going on in October that I seriously don’t know where the month went. Which means I am ready for a busy November..
Daylight saving time ends on the first Sunday in November, when clocks are moved back an hour at 2 a.m. local daylight time ……Having said that, it is a great time of year to be outside and see nature undress itself of all the beautiful autumn colors and soon to be the elegant white that we all love.😄
Remembrance Day is approching- By remembering all who have served, we recognize their willingly-endured hardships and fears, taken upon themselves so that we could live in peace.🌺
Nov. 28th our Usa friends will gather on this day to be thankful for what they have, for the family they love, the friends they cherish, and for the blessings that will come. Happy Thanksgiving!
Photo shoot soon for the most wonderful time of the year 🎄
Halloween is one of the most fun holidays, particularly for children who get to get dressed up in scary costumes and go door to door saying ‘trick or treat’! Enjoying candy and going to parties makes the holiday an exciting one, despite the fact that it is centered on ghosts, ghouls, goblins, witches, Frankenstein and zombies. 👻
Carving pumpkins into Jack-o-lanters and then placing them on the front porch with a candle in them is a time honored tradition.
Reading is an extremely important skill. It is by reading that you learn much of what you need to know about an escort or any information you need. Reading is also an excellent way to improve your general English. You can only learn from reading, however, if what you read is not too difficult.
If you read more information about your escort, you’re obtaining more insight. That has never, nor will it ever, be a problem.
Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, about your escort.. and you never know when it might come in handy.😘 The more knowledge you have, the better-equipped you are in scheduling your date.😅
We’ve all heard the old adage “you only get one chance to make a first impression.” Those are some of the truest words ever spoken.
Thanksgiving holiday serves as a reminder to me of the importance of gratitude.
We all know that Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, but yet many times in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we forget the importance of gratitude, not just on Thanksgiving, but every other day as well.
It’s not surprising that the most successful and happiest people on the planet are also the ones who practice gratitude on a regular basis. However, what might give one pause, is that the most grateful people are also the most successful and the happiest.
Which came first, the gratitude or the success? Are these people grateful because they’re successful, or successful because they’re grateful?
There is no better way to adjust our attitude than through the practice of gratitude. Knowing that what we focus on today grows into our reality tomorrow, let our hearts and our minds overflow with gratitude.
For no matter where we are in life, there is always a reason to be grateful. Always. And when we practice gratitude, everything else lines up for us almost magically.
However you choose to celebrate Thanksgiving , consider starting a new tradition in your family. As you sit together with your loved ones, go around the table and share out loud something that you are profoundly grateful for in your life at this very moment. Feel the joy that it brings to you in just thinking about it.
This practice alone will shift your energy from where you are to where you want to be. There is nothing more powerful, or nothing more effective at bringing happiness into our world, than to start by being thankful for where we are right now.
As we enter into this beautiful holiday, let us remember to practice gratitude every day, not just on Thanksgiving. Let gratitude be the first thing on your mind when you wake in the morning, and the last thought you have as you drift off to sleep each night. Talk about it, share it with your loved ones, celebrate it and you will be blessed with even more good things in your life. Make this the first day of a daily practice and watch what happens.
After all, we can all learn something from the most successful and happiest people in the world- and that is to remember that it all starts with being grateful for the many blessings that we have right here, right now.
It all starts with simply taking the time to practice gratitude as a way of life.
If we stop to think about it, there are so many things to be grateful for. As I was reflecting on all the good things, people, and blessings I enjoy, I starting compiling a list. It seemed it would never end. In all actually, it never will end because our blessings are new every morning. In this series, I am going to share different areas of gratitude in my life.
Barrie Thank you for being a blessing during my trip. I am grateful for your hospitality.
At the end of my trip I ended up with an ear infection.
Thank you to the kind gentlemen who took me to emergency..and back to my hotel..Its amazing how fast antibiotics work..
I am thankful I am now better and healthy again.
As I am back to my home base..Thankful for all of you for welcoming me back..
I just wanted a little bit of a break. I would wake up in the morning and look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it would be the last thing I looked at. I felt a little too dependent on it so I wanted to take a minute.”
I now enjoy catching up with my friends, ” It makes you realise who your real friends are and how social media takes the joy out of sharing news with people. I also feel less anxious.
‘”Wow. It feels great to be so present, and not just on my tablet.’”
So. I have decided I was going to focus on the here and now, to communicate in what much of my generation would describe as the old-fashioned way – calling and texting.
i wanted to concentrate on the human interactions around me, as well as get more involved with me. The first thing I found was that I had a lot more free time in my day.
Today my creativity is flourising ..
This is not goodbye twitter., it is only a new beginning…
