Happy 150th Birthday CANADA

Under a celebratory mood after decompressing from "another day in the real world" meaning paying the bills so I can retire at freeDUMB75 [my unique self-term ] ... having a few chuckles and many inspirations from circulating around the community online.

When I am online, as a form of escapism of the mental or mental-health kind, I am the driver of my path merely by the barest of fingers only by tips, I can navigate what I am reading [mostly] relatively carefree but usually in the knowledge accumulation or enlightenment or humorous vibes.

You see, I am the driver, mechanic, doctor, therapist, politician, activist, feminine, enthusiast who loves her city and likes to see the best in everyone and everything.  Unlike so many of us, we've been kicked a few times, had to kick back another moment, if not physically, mentally inclined.

My mother and even youngest daughter have communicated that I am too much of the trusting kind.  Then on an excursion adventure minutes from my …

Hey Cheery You,

Just want someone to know what is going on because you will notice me being away for the next two weeks.  10 days of which are vacation with 3 days of suspension.
THAT WOMAN hustled me, graceful lady, union rep and me into an "Investigative Meeting" yesterday at around 11 am, giving me 15 min to mentally and physically to prepare with the Union Rep {lovely nice gal, fairly new to the role but really a natural in conflict resolution and mediation--she REALLY should consider as a career choice!}.THAT WOMAN had 2 areas of concern:
1) Calls with customers, and 2) Adherence to schedule
Well, ironically I knew I was in deep sh*t when I got to work yesterday morning, going through my email first thing.  There was an email on RP&O with the "APPROVED" subject with link to NOTA appearing.  So naturally, I clicked.  To my gasp, it had only approved one third of what the CANVASS was about.  
You see, my husband and I had some important things going on and we had …

Don't you just hate family spats?
Well, if you happen to have a family that includes me (oh dear) a stepdaughter (oh my) and a diva daughter (sigh) ....... then there is the youngest daughter whom I never seem to get into spats with at all.  How is this possible?  



Heck, find my THISnTHAT playlist on iTUNES.  I'm just playing SHUFFLE and amazed at what a selection.  Sometimes we even surprise ourselves eh?

Ode to Spring

A collection of spring poems
flowered by some of the greatest word artists. Accompanied by images with wise words to bring spring forward to our minds:  blooming optimism, renewal, inspiration and beauty.



Spring by William Blake Sound the flute!
Now it’s mute.
Birds delight
Day and night;
Nightingale
In the dale,
Lark in sky,
Merrily,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year. Little boy,
Full of joy;
Little girl,
Sweet and small;
Cock does crow,
So do you;
Merry voice,
Infant noise,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year. Little lamb,
Here I am;
Come and lick
My white neck;
Let me pull
Your soft wool;
Let me kiss
Your soft face;
Merrily, merrily, we welcome in the year.
