Merry Monday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Black Squirrel Sprints Assault Course

Wonderful Turkish Marbling Art, Painting on Water

Hand Feeding and Playing with a Friendly Platypus

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from drama and negativity.


Did you know?  Eating chocolate while studying math can improve your math skills as well as boost your energy level.


I appreciate the ones that are there at all times, not just when it's convenient.


When it comes to money, abundance isn't about fancy cars, yachts and Prada handbags.  Abundance is really about ease, flow and peace of mind.


Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use. - Wendell Johnson


Kindness...practicing kindness helps foster stronger connections and relationships.


What I like most about change is that it's a synonym for hope.  If you are taking a risk, what you are really saying is, "I believe in tomorrow and I will be part of it."


You are capable of more than you know.  Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path.  Aim high, behave honorably, prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure, persist!  The world needs all you can give.


Loneliness is easily avoided by always serving others.


Don't wait for your life story to be perfect before allowing yourself to be happy.


When others try to get your tutu into a twist...just twirl around and keep dancing!


I am grateful.  My life isn't perfect, but it has perfect moments.






Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  3. Hope you had a wonderful weekend - we finally got some much-needed rain here and it has cooled down.
    Loved the squirrel video. They can be such a nuissance, but they are smart and (sometimes) cute!

  5. The one about friends being there all the time versus when it is convenient really struck a note with me. Those are really the true friends
    Have a happy day, Linda

  9. Good morning, dear Linda! I love to watch squirrels. Seeing how that squirrel followed the assault course reminded me of the squirrels around my house. Every day they emerged from their nests high in the trees, jumped from limb to limb and scurried vertically down tree trunks, making their way to my birdbath and the nearby spot where I scattered sunflower seeds for the birds. I never heard of that form of art in which you can make paintings on water and transfer the images onto paper. It seems like magic! My favorite video was the one of the people feeding and tickling that platypus. It does my heart good to see people whose first instinct toward animals is to love and care for them rather than shoot them to death.

    Have a wonderful day, dear friend Linda!

  11. That is one determined squirrel! And a very creative human to have come up with such an obstacle course. Personally, I think chocolate is an enhancement to any activity. :)

  14. Hi Linda, looks like nothing can stop the black squirrel from getting to the feeder. It can easily overcome any sprint assault course. I didn't know Platypus are so cute and playful. Will be fun to keep one as pet.

  35. Hi Linda! I hope things are beginning to cool down in Montreal! We're under a tornado watch here, and rain is pounding down. At least it isn't a warning. That platypus was awesome. I dearly want to see a platypus! It's one of the first animals I ever learned the name of when I was very little. Chocolate makes everything better! Have a good evening, dear friend!

  36. Platypus used to live by the creek at the back of my sister's house. We were lucky to see them regularly.

  43. Super post, Linda! Black squirrels we don't have, but we do have fox squirrels which have black and brown coloring, elongated bodies and bushy tails. The first time I saw one running I thought it was a fox. And you've given me a great idea as to how to clear our a doctor's waiting room the next time I'm jammed up in one!
