And, so there was Love.

Good Morning Starshine

Good morning Starshine!

Sunny days are here again. :) I have been feeling a pull to start writing again and hopefully I find the quiet moments and dig in and shed light on the thoughts waiting patiently to be expressed!

In the meantime.. hi! And, how have you been?

Spread the love!

Peace,

Tammy

Mother Goose



Duck, duck.. Goose! Was walking along in a park when we were surrounded by sweet ducks all hoping for a morsel of food.

We don't feed the ducks because it only encourages them to stay instead of follow their natural instincts to fly south. Something I wonder how much we actually effect their intuitive natures and instincts that have been built in for so long. I'm continually amazed to see just how much we do wrong with our good intentions! More likely, it's our selfish intentions.. yes. Really, honestly, I'm (see, we're) not helping the birds out by feeding them that stale bread.. I'm only bloating their tummies giving kidney failure and other things. Also, it's never nice to see them fighting over the food and possibly causing each other injury. But, I certainly enjoy being chased after.. boy do I feel loved when those little duckies waddle after me nipping at my ankles and singing their little whanwhanwhant song. *insertsarcasticnodandsmilehere* So, anyway.. we did not feed the army of duckies.. nor this beautiful Goose that snuck up behind me on the path. Honestly, I just felt she was more lonely and I wanted to bring her home with me but thought she looked like she was doing a pretty good job taking care of herself. :) However, I will go back and check on her again soon. She was all by herself.. which is rather unusual for Geese and her wing looked a little strange.. but then wings have fooled me before!

Walks, puppies and mushrooms

Well fall has officially embraced us here. Perfect weather to be harvesting some delicious Burdock Root and Dandy Roots, Rosehips and Sunshine.. oh my! Yes, soak up every minute of the gentle rays of sun during these shorter days and step outside to embrace the brighter, closer moons. Watch your out breath dance with each exhale and let down your hair for the wind whip around, cleansing you and energizing you!.



We went for a walk today. Our first walk with puppy off leash. We were a little nervous and truly prepared for a little excitement if we had to be, but she thrilled us! What a good puppy, coming when called.. staying close and keeping the kids in check when they ran to fast! lol


Along this walk we spotted the biggest mushroom we've ever seen. I was grateful for my phone camera as I forgot our digital and caught a couple of not so great quality photos of it. I have put out some feelers as to what type of mushroom this is and eagerly anticipate the answer. Do you know?? If you do, you may win a prize! :) (What that will be is not yet known.) oO






It's quite large and my daughter feels pretty certain that there are many fairies living in it.  I happen to agree.  It's an inspiring colour, this picture not doing it justice.  A velvet like creamy caramel.

Well, that's all for me for now.  I wish you all great blessings on these fabulous fall days!

Spread the Love!
Peace,

Okay.. stop.. now remember to breathe!


So, I'm starting another little 6 week course. Talk about an amazing summer with my herbology program which I (hopefully) graduate in October! And, I'm hoping to continue on with the Wild Women Intensive starting in May again.
But, now this is a pranayama breathing program that will gracefully take me into the depths of fall. I'm really looking forward to it.. like butterfly's in my tummy forward to it but as it stands right now, I can't afford it. It's not that it's a crazy expensive course.. well worth every penny but sometimes in our lives, every penny counts. However, I have trust that Spirit will look out for this situation for me and for the beautiful shining Light Soul offering the course. As long as it's paid by the end it will be okay she said. I really feel this is something vital for my being right now. I hold my breath much to often. I've been more and more conscious of my breath these last few months and have been feeling a strong pull to work with this person on it. If I'm being so pulled in a direction then there must be a reason for it. Fortunately, I'm meeting these wonderful Soul inspired, come from the heart with love and integrity and trust people.. that are not all about money. Really some of the most powerful and amazing teachers that have come to be in my life yet! So, with the opening of our own home to offer people an opportunity for a place to come and be still and safe.. I plan on operating it in the same way. People say.. well.. what about those that can afford but still don't pay.. I say.. it's none of my business.. that's their will to deal with.. not mine. Obviously, if that's the case.. they need Love more then anyone else!
So, thank you Universe for bringing such amazing teachers into my life and it's my promise to you, that I will carry that energy and work from integrity and trust and love myself.

Hello!

For just a moment I pop in and say hello! Life has started to slow down again.. with the tied and true signs of fall whispering hints of change and strength and inner silence I gracefully bow to the flow of life and trust in the movements of Mother Nature.


So, off I go with my camera, and my trusty new Border Collie/Lab puppy for a cool morning walk around the neighbourhood to explore the rustic grasses and pathways around us.


How is everything in YOUR lives?

Hey World!

I heard this song for the first time and wow.. beautiful. Then I was peeking around my favorite vegan geologists blog and FOUND IT AGAIN! Hey you Bobbie.. I LOVE that song too!! Imagine that. lol

And, so with you all you beautiful readers 0-10,000,000 I hope you enjoy this inspiring, sad, thinking song as well.

You don't give up on me and I won't give up on you! Well.. even if you do give up on me.. that's okay because I promise to still not give up on you. :P HA!

Herbology 101



I have started my Herbology course and I am in Love! Deeply, madly in love with the plant world. All I want to do is play with the plants. I don't want to go to work. I want to explore wild fields. I don't want to eat. I want to make Dandelion magic. I don't want to sleep. I want to lay in a field of Violas and smell them. I want to lean my back against a Cottonwood tree and daydream beside a babbling brook for hours and hours. So much fun!


I have to honestly say this is what my heart and soul have been looking for. A truly honest and authentic teacher who knows what she's talking about and isn't afraid to share the information. My teacher Barbara is the kind of women that gives you the space to be exactly who you are.. she has the kind of love for you and for life itself, that allows your light shine as big as it can possibly shine and when you think you must be absolutely, positively glowing! She raises you up a little bit more. She, in the most gentle and understated way, challenges you to shine a little brighter. She is the kind of person that I would like to be. She is the kind of person that is so confident in who she is, she has no worries or insecurities that cause her to judge and hold a person down. She's proud of you for being you! I think that most of us do that. We get so worried about us. Some of us get so scared that there just is not enough room in this world if everyone shines as bright as they might be. Like.. the world might spontaneously combust or something really horrible and well.. maybe your lightbulb would burn out seeing as you wouldn't need light in that house anymore.. but my point is well, it won't. The world won't blow up if we shine shine shine. Everyone's heart might suddenly bloom wide open and (we might stop having heart disease as one of the number 1 cause of ditching this world) we might all start seeing without a clouded and fearful vision. We might start to see that the light that is shining in their hearts is a reflection of the light that shines in your heart. And, when your light sees their light they reach out and join and the light expands and looks for more light to join with, all the while understanding that there is room because light needs no space as we know it. Aww, now doesn't that feel great?!


Well, this is what I've learned in my first class along with fantastic information on Violas and Dandelions and the beautiful Cottonwood tree and mm mmm good nettles! Can't wait for the next class.

Tammy

Bicycle, Bicycle, Bicycle!



This is my new bike lock! I personally think it's as scary looking as the name said.. BEWARE bike locks. Well, it certainly frightened off any would be wanna be bike riders from taking my ride for a spin! Good kitty.






This is my pink Cadillac. Needs a bit of detailing work maybe.. shine it up on the outside as beautifully as it makes my heart shine when the wind is blowing through my helmet, and the cheerful singing of the birds are making my ears open wide in absolute bliss. Oh yeah.

Spread the Love folks!
Peace Goddess Tammy
P.S. Do you twitter? I'm still deciding! :D

Self Potrait of my Goddess Self


Goddess Leonie inspired me deeply to create my own self portrait. However, the first to put the idea in my mind was the beautiful Deborah at Temenos of the Blessing Light. I'm not much of an artist at any rate I would say. Bad bad girl creating those terrible energetic thoughts. Would it even cross my mind to suggest to my most talented daughter that she is not much of an artist? I think not. I'm actually honestly proud of this little drawing. Simple as it may be it does capture my heart in this chosen moment in time. Even the heart shaped tear for my heart breaks when I think of some of the things that human beings are capable of. I choose not to hide who I am. I choose to love and to be love in every situation the presents itself. In this moment.

In this moment right now, what does your self portrait look like?

Herbs.. oh so lovely.

Good Morning!



A truly fabulous day indeed. It's supposed to get to 15 degrees c here.. that's 59 degrees f.



I'm so excited about the beautiful herbs I bought in the lovely rock shaped/looking planter.



So there we have lovely Organic Basil, Organic Thyme, Organic Parsley.. you guessed it, Organic Chives! We found some pretty small round pebbles outside the front 'yard'. Really, it's not a yard of grass but a front yard of beautiful little pebbles. The little girl from down the street came over and we all found the most beautiful round little pebbles to assist these lovely herbs in their growing. If there are any really avid gardeners out there please correct me if this is wrong, but I don't think it's wrong. This is going to rest on my counter top in the kitchen.

This is my opening to a really exciting herbology course that I'm starting soon! More on that later.

That's it for now.

Spread the Love!

Back!

Hello!

Well, I'm back! Maybe a little slowly at first but here I am updating after what feels like a year. :) But, really it's only been a couple of months. Lots of changes here. We are settling in comfortably in beautiful Kelowna BC. Oh, Kelowna how I've missed you so!


And! I installed Norton anti-virus and shortly after my computer crashed. Completely and totally crashed. Somehow I managed to get things up and running again (please don't ask me how because even now thinking back I certainly can't remember how I did it) and thank goodness the day before I followed Norton's advice and backed up all my photo files in their little strange online vault. I don't pretend to understand these things really. But, I wonder if Norton didn't have something to do with the crash?? So, after talking with their support staff we managed to get those files back. Still I couldn't find them and I was dreading spending another hour on the phone when I downloaded Picasso 3 (love Picasso!) and they asked me if I wanted to find all the pictures in every folder on my computer I said Yes please! And.........yes........ Picasso found all our 5000+ photos stored on our computer. My tears were now tears of joy and I jumped around the living room in an excited hippy monkey jig.
However, all these photos are in Picasso folders and if I want to post something online I have to resave it to my pictures folder. A small task really. :)
So, here are a couple of pictures that I've taken from our lovely Kelowna. Hope you enjoy and I've missed all of my imaginary readers.. and those of you who aren't imaginary too! *snickersnortgiggle*


Frost on our windows. My Mom said we are losing hundreds of dollars in heat with these windows but wow was it pretty.




My favorite beach!




Pinecone bird feeders we made to attract the birds at our new home. It's been a pretty quiet yard compared to the frogs, deer, birds and raccoons at our last home. But, we'll work on it. :)

Spread the Love!
Tammy


P.S. Do you twitter? I've just signed up for this crazy little thing and I'm not quite sure what I think about it yet. I'm Tammy2luvs on there! :D

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!


I have to say first and foremost, thank you so much for all your wonderful support and your wonderful comments on my blog! Thank you for the sweet awards that I'm truly touched to have received!

I find myself a little sentimental on this morning of New Years Eve. We've accomplished much this year and I'm entirely satisfied with the way things have gone. Entirely satisfied!

What was the best part of 2008? Tough question because I think all of it was great. Aside from the cherished time spent with friends and family.. aside from the fact that we are alive, and how wonderful does it feel to be alive? To breathe!

I mean from the adorable kittens at Katie's Place that we helped nurture their hearts from fear to love. Evelyn and her powerful strong heart, offering each and every kitty a safe, warm and comfortable home for them no matter what the circumstance. Creating and manifesting more and more for these beautiful 4 legged beings.

From the time spent at the Burnaby Wildlife Center with the wild birds and animals. Coming so close to them and having that sweet Bushtit looking at me straight in the eye, then peeping so very cheerfully while curiously beeking my wedding band. I do believe that little bird flew snug into my heart for good and forever will this sweet tiny bird stay, chirping cheerfully all the while. A true gift!

Maybe the best part was for just a short second in time meeting Janice at Heart's On Noses and her most adorable piggies ever. Being there to see her love and her faithful dedication to the piggies that she so adores, Janice is an inspiration to all.

Watching my husband kick butt through a very tough and grinding 2 year course to be able to do even more for the world. To come home and offer much needed support to his brother, all the while offering support every single day in his life to strangers who will never even know he was there or what his name was. He inspired me to my toes!

To my son working through is dyspraxia and trying so hard all the time! To my daughter in moving through her shyness to open up and grow into even more. They inspire me.

I guess maybe the theme for this last year was about inspiration. Look at how much room people have in their hearts. Look at how strong a Spirit can be, even sometimes in the face of humanity's worst. Look at all that life has to offer us! Life is a miracle and as Dancing Dragonfly likes to share so often You are a miracle!

So here's to stepping into boundless spaces! Here's to you achieving your true heart's desire! It can be done and it will be done! Here's to Love.

Spread the Love folks and HAPPY NEW YEAR! yay!



With Joy,
Tammy
