Yes, free up time so you can do the important things in life and give them your full attention.
Well there are some things I enjoy doing that others can do for me, but there have been times in my life when I was able to delegate or hire others to do for me. The one thing I always hated doing was housework. I was so lucky to be able to hire a cleaner while I was working so I didn’t have the weekly arguments with my family about chores.
I always like birds to present the quote. I call them “birds of wisdom”. Blue Herons always look wise.
Daily affirmations should include the same ones as Pink.
Yesterday’s adventure was a trip to Point Pelee National Park, Leamington Ontario with my sister and my kayaks. The launch there is beautiful, easy to access and easy to use. You can do a short 1 hour kayak along the boardwalk or branch out into the adjoining “lakes”. But be careful, once you get out into one of the smaller lakes, everything can start to look the same with tall reeds all around you. We had a small panic moment, but found our way out and back to the boardwalk for lunch after an almost 4 hour kayak.
Our adventure started with a guided tour along the boardwalk by a beautiful pair of Mute Swans. In the larger Lake Pond we were shown their 4 babies, now adolescents.
The kayaking was wonderful so we thought we would go on the tram to the point. However, we didn’t bring long pants and the flies were biting, so we cut the trip short.
Provincial Parks are open and back to almost normal use. Kayaking season is well underway. The Ontario Government was kind enough to extend my Provincial Park Pass until the end of the summer 2022. I aim to go Kayaking at least once a week to make sure I get the most out of my 2021 Provincial Park Pass. At least this year all the washrooms are available (you don’t have to pee in the woods). I’ve learned to get out of the kayak at the far end of the Old Ausable Channel at the Pinery and use the facilities before heading back downstream.
I also bought a 2nd kayak so I can take friends with me. My husband rigged my trailer to accommodate the 2 kayaks. My first outing with the new setup was with my Sister. We counted 159 painted turtles and 2 snappers. I’m certain there were more turtles, but I kept loosing count and need to buy a manual clicking counter. We also were lucky enough to see 2 muskrats, turkey vultures, Blue Heron, King Fishers and King Birds. The slide show below includes photos from my last 2 trips on the Old Ausable Channel. I loved seeing the Juvenile Bald Eagle. The new to me kayak is a fishing kayak and is a bit more stable for taking photos.
Here we are, Federal Election Day in Canada. So for all my Canadian friends, get out there and vote. How appropriate that it is also National Gibberish Day. All the words have been said during the campaign period. Now just to see if there is any realy change or it’s all been just words.
Oh well, we can always celebrate National Pepperoini Pizza Day.
In the middle of Canada’s Federal Election 2021 we celebrate the International Day of Democracy. For my Canadian friends and followers, be certain to vote. It is your civid duty and democratic privilage.
Today is also the First Day of Yom Kippur. The last day to atone your sins in the 10 days of repentance. A day of fasting and prayer. Jews seek to purify their souls by denying the bodily pleasures.
Today is also Green Peace Day. So save the whales and save the world.
I decided today, Marco Polo’s birthday should be celebrated by Marco Polo Day. Not the swimming pool game, but the explorer and adventurer. Celebrate by nurturing the adverturer in you. Go for a walk or a short trip to enjoy the variety of life and flavours of the world around you. Discover something new to you.
40 years ago today I gave birth to my first child, a boy and a joy. We named him after his father and I was promised I could always call him Jay. Children grow up and choose their own direction. He prefers his real name over his childhood name, but I refuse to call him anything but Jay. None of his friends even recognize the name for he is no longer a child. But he will always be my son. I wish him the very best for the next 40 years. ❤
