Are You Happy??

I don't know who said this but it is well worth considering...

"It's important not to confuse love with being stuck together."

I wonder how many people in your very own town are living their life... simply being stuck together??

Today's Quotes About Beauty

Beauty comes in so many different terms. Now that we have moved to the country, my list of all things beautiful have grown in so many ways. For example... we saw a deer today. We have been here two weeks now and that is the first animal that we have seen. The bears, I don't want to see, but there's something gorgeous about seeing a deer step onto our property. Now if they venture into my garden, I might change my thoughts lol, but at the moment all is good!

The deer saw me first... Apparenly I spooked him and he took off running across the lawn. I would hate to be hit by a deer that was running full out. That would hurt. I think that I was more scared that he was!!

A Quote About Saying Good-bye

"I don't know how to say goodbye. I can't think of any words."
Gregory Peck, Roman Holiday

Don't you wish more men were like that!! I have known too many are quite happy to just turn and walk away! Now I have a friend who is learning how to be the one to turn and walk away! From what I have seen... it's her turn!

“Remember me and smile, for it's better to forget than to remember me and cry.”
Dr. Seuss

Today's Quote About Manitoba...

The earth seemed to shake as the bear walked towards me. Boom. Boom. Boom. Actually, it was my heart beating out of my chest. ~ Jillian Recksiedler

Speaking of Manitoba...

When I'm not keeping my eyes open for bears wandering into the yard, I'm playing in the garden!!
There are so many really unusual plants here in Manitoba. One that really caught my eye is called a Kiwicha.. I don't know if they come in any other colors, but this particular one is ruby red.  Apparently it is from a very old family of plants that have been around since the Aztects and really good for you. They even added the seeds to a hot pan and they popped just like popcorn. Never expected that!!

I Found a Quote About a Snake!!

The thing about words is that meaning can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
Terry Pratchett

Speaking of Snakes...

I have heard that Manitoba is known for it's Garter Snakes, but I really don't want to know anything more!  We have been here a grand total of 2 weeks and I have seen two so far. That is more than enough.
Darling daughter mentioned at breakfast this morning that there are actual dens of snakes that you can view. Don't know where and didn't ask!! That just creeps me out!!
The snake that I saw yesterday, slithered into a little opening under the front steps. Now every time I go up or down them, I'm going to be wondering how many snakes are under there??
