Fallinter of Nature & Life

Dry crispy chilled air

Partners with shorter daylight.

Fall’s vibrant colorful leaves,

Now

Lay as a blanket

Of brown crackling chips.

Signs of winters arrival

Looming.

As with life,

Do not allow

Your preconceived ideas

Of what you thought

Happiness’ appearance

Would be

At this time of your life

Interfere with reality.

Though it may not

Mirror your dreams

Could it be better?

Happy Monday!

Kind Regards – K

Vacation colors in Troutman, NC

 

Each morning, as I took my walk,  IPhone in my pocket,

and for those who know me, my head in the clouds.

I am drawn to the beauty in the sky.

Clouds, sunshine…

Ever changing, always unique.

Morning  pinks!

Each morning I was greeted with the distant  sound of a rooster crowing.

Though I never saw him, each morning, better than an alarm clock,

he let the world  know it was time to rise and shine!

 

Grayish with pink
One morning as I walked out my daughter’s front door. There was this beautiful artwork in the sky!
Good morning sunshine
Right at my halfway point, I looked across the street. And this is what I saw.
Golden morning
On the other edge of the field were cream colored clouds.
Band of Gold
There it is my band of gold across the sky.
pinks galore
Another day of pink delight!
Fall in NC
The last of the Fall colors. It reminded me of home in New Hampshire.
Decorating for  the Holidays
Oh how Blessed I felt as I helped my daughter & granddaughter decorate for Christmas!

 

Today,  I am  prepping to fly back to NH.

Hard to say goodbye, tears, hugs, but comfort in knowing

We will soon be together again.

 

XXOOXXOOXXOOXX

Temporary

Wishing You the Best Day!

I’m Singing –

“Every morning I wake up… I say a little prayer for you.”

soul happty

That moment you awake, 

Swirling ’bout your mind

A random  upbeat song,

Somehow sparkles

From some memory 

You dreamt,

While you were deep in sleep,

You head  to start the coffee

Barefoot,

Doing a hallway boogie

While,

Your soul overflows with tune.

Feeling jovial and  free.

Pondering only  a moment

 I wonder

 A Morning starting  with music,

What else can be this sweet?

Dionne Warwick- Click here

Wouldn’t it be  fabulous if we could find a way to hang onto that morning musical feeling all day!!

Music really does seem to elevate our positive mind!

It helps me to block out the toxic environment around me, whether it  be  a person  or

just the negativity of the atmosphere.

If you are able, try to find a way to include music through out your  day.

Sing a little ditty, find some headphones and play it at your desk or in  your office.

Go for a drive at lunchtime  and ‘CRANK THOSE TUNES”!

Kind Regards and singing – K

Particular

What Defines You.

Her childhood was terrible.

At the age of 18

she made the decision

that she would rise above

Anything negative that her parents

could have said or done.

Her thoughts and actions were

her own responsibility.

Her parents could  not change their past.

But,

she had the power to change her own future.

And  did.

 

img_0447

So live your life the best you can

Pay it forward,  love unconditionally.

Remember, people are people.

The only person you have control over

is yourself.

 

Today is the perfect day to

start molding and finding

the path that  helps you to become

the greatest, most beautiful

version of yourself.

Options

Just because you have had tragedy in your  life

It does not  have define who  you are.

Almost  everyone has had to deal

with something that rocks their world.

Your  choice?

Allow  it to make you bitter,

play the blame game

Or

Go through the  grieving  process

And move  beyond it.

It is our reaction to what happens to us

that helps  define  our character.

People experience terrible losses.

As  they go through

the  grieving process,

they have to experience

and feel all the steps it takes to heal.

But

Feeling anguish, sadness and lost

does not give them permission

to be  unkind to others.

The past  is the past

I have yet to find  anyone who has been

able  to go backwards and redo

what has already happened.

No  one should be held accountable

for days gone by

when they were learning

the dos and don’ts

and  truly believed they

were doing their best.

The  only thing in our control

is ourselves.

What can we do?

Each day strive on being a little  bit

better than the day prior.

Hard to  believe this is my 466th post.

Our  followers have reached 688!!

We feel darn lucky to have such wonderfully, inspirational

fellow bloggers, writers, photographers and friends in our blog  world.

Just think that most of us randomly stumbled onto each other in this life path

And decided to walk together for awhile.

When my day feels dark,

Full of strife.

A post,

Your like,

Your smile,

A comment

Is often just the nudge

That helps me to remember,

All the brightness in my life.

Yesterday, was relax and play in our pj’s.

As usual I was up early,  I took a short walk and snapped a

picture of what I thought was a star.

 

It wasn’t!

It was better-

It was the planet

VENUS!!

HOORAY for GROUPS 7, 8 and 9!

626981E9-D844-4ACD-9068-387072261711

Early morning, up with the roosters!

🛫      🛩.     🛬

I love to fly.

Times sure  have changed since the 80s, 90s or even 10 years ago.

C9EDF75B-623F-4F0B-A789-B19A3ED99F6C What is going on with some of  these airlines?

Yes, I understand budget cuts, and that economical changes needed to  be implemented “LEAN”,  multi-tasking personnel- etc etc.

What HIGH PAID CFO/CEO BRAINSTORMED – load by THE GROUP METHOD?

Breaking into small  groups IS an excellent idea.

The fact they have found a way to utilize it to nickel and dime a person, abhors me.

(These days nickels and dimes are equivalent to  $25 – $100+).

If you want “the privilege” to board earlier than the rest, (NOT First class), you can pay $39 or more to get on the plane with the first, second, third or fourth group. This guarantees that you will not be part of  the lowly  groups 6, 7, 8 or 9!

Due to this  option, the latter groups,  board and trip, excuse themselves and finally sit amongst the people already settled in, (supposedly),  our  seat assignments are no different.

I bought MY ticket 2 1/2 months in advance, shouldn’t I get a bonus for planning ahead?(smile)

To check a bag it’s 25 dollars, that’s okay until you get to the gate and they make the announcement,  “It’s a full  flight” (lately, it always is), anyone who  wants to volunteer to check your luggage, please come to the podium, it well be complimentary” – aka FREE!

Really? (I hear the guy behind me growling, because he checked his bag in before he arrived at the  gate).

I see it every time I fly.

NEXT I contain my groan as the flight starts descending, after 2 hours of  playing my sardine role,

THE ANNOUNCEMENT  comes over the speaker, about signing  up for THE  credit card. “Earn free 60k miles, simply -PAY THE ANNUAL FEE-  to earn those first free miles, start accumulating new AND for special privileges  like – YOU GUESSED IT-  being one of the first to board!

My thoughts?   BITE ME!

Ha! ha!

Personally, I believe it should be people that need a little extra help first, any member of  the military,  then everyone should board based on their seat assignment,  starting from  the back and working  forwards.

OH wait, that makes sense….

BUT, HOW can you make those extra nickels on that??

Can someone tell me what happened  to “THE FRIENDLY” skies?

Going forward, wouldn’t it  be great if we all pulled together,

SAVED OUR NICKELS AND DIMES, and  boarded with Group 7, 8 and 9.

Before we know it, 7, 8 and 9, might become 1, 2 AND 3!!!

The best part of my trip?

C315FAE1-0873-4619-A83B-ED6E0140C2E6 Seeing the little munchkin, that’s looking up at me from my left.

We Thank you…


Veteran’s Day, 2017

Mere words cannot express

How grateful that we are,

Nor can we understand 

All that you’ve been through

So today, I offer a heartfelt

seemingly simple set of

Words, 

Blessed are we,  for you.

THANK YOU for your service.




  

Kind Regards  – K

Always Learning – “Get To”

To experience feelings

and emotions,

Means we are alive 

We are living.

Happiness, joy and excitement 

Are wonderful!

Anger, fear and sadness

Not as wonderful, but

Are also part of living!

Finding a good balance

Seems to be the key.

Seething, ugly anger,

Seeing red.

Exasperation.

This week, 

I experienced all the above.

All I wanted was inner peace,

Happiness and to let go.

Journaling like a mad woman,

On a mission,

I searched for the trigger,

A solution and to find 

My way back.

 
It took 3 1/2 long days

And two sleepless nights.

But, I was determined. 

Then I watched a video on

“Get To”.

 

Each day we are lucky

To “Get To” enjoy our 

Morning coffee.

Everyday we “Get To”

Spend time with friends.

Nothing is guaranteed.

 

Life is a privilege.

Ask the person going

Through chemo or radiation,

As they fight to live.

Spend time with a parent or child

Who is grieving 

For the loss of their loved one

Who lost their battle against 

Depression, 

Or was taken from them due

To an unfortunate accident.

Today, take a stroll along 

The river,

Meander through the woods,

Breathe in all that fresh air,

Feel the sun’s rays on your face

Or capture the raindrops 

On your tongue.

 
Focus on the simplicity,

The beautiful,

Yet complexity of nature.

Remember,

TODAY

YOU, 

“GET TO”!


Kind Regards – K

Friday the 13th Myth Or Mindset?

Each day is what we believe

It to be.

Friday the 13th

In my mind

Is a good luck day!
Find that positive.

Black cats are beautiful!

I will admit,

After I have spilled some,

I still throw salt over my

Shoulder!

🎃😈🎃

Join me in my journey

Of viewing the muted colors of

Fall 2017 in Vermont!

I didn’t see any

Bad Luck.

Did you?
