Mid-January Friday

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

Montreal Food Markets

Crickets Chirping Slowed Down 800%

How to Make a Watermelon Cake

Ministry of Silly Walks (Monty Python)

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.

Keep doing the best you can.  One foot in front of the other, one minute after another.

Don't be bullied by your own thoughts.

Light is easy to love.  I want to know your darkness.

Everything's going to be okay.  It won't hurt this badly forever.  You will get through this.  You will feel happy again.  Please be gentle with yourself.  Find reasons to be happy every day.  Again, everything's going to be okay.

Prayer is the road to Heaven, but Faith opens the door.

There are two types of people in the world:  people who think the government is looking out for their best interest and people who think. - Nathan Fraser

Sometimes someone says something really small and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart.

Find joy in everything you choose to do.  Every job, relationship,'s your responsibility to love it or change it. - Chuck Palahniuk

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. - Anne Frank

Honesty has a power that very few people can handle.

You are responsible for the energy you bring in the room. - Iyanla Vanzant

Ignorant people are more likely to believe they're brilliant, while intelligent people underestimate their abilities.

Keep your heart filled with gratitude for all you have today...there's so much to be thankful for!

A puppy mill dog's dream...I wish I may, I wish I might, set them all free by Christmas night!

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!

  8. Hello Linda!:)I would love to visit the Montreal market and taste the apple cider and try some of the market's wares.The funny walk vídeo (although I have seen it before) always makes me smile, but the star attraction for me today is the chirping crickets vídeo. At one point I could have sworn I was listening to an owl, and then the wind through the trees. It was just amazing. Thank you Linda!:)
    Enjoy your weekend!:)

  9. If only every dog could have a home on Christmas night.

    That's why I got my dog fixed, the world does not have a shortage of dogs, just a shortage of adopters

  10. Those food markets are really amazing. Thanks for your shares and have a great weekend.

  17. je te souhaite une belle journée , ici ciel de plombs et chute de neige fondante , elle ne tient pas encore au sol ce qui transforme la ville en mare aux canards géantes , s'il gèle cette nuit ça fera une super patinoire

    dans les Ardennes la neige là-bas tient , y'a même des congères .... et dire qu'on avait encore des roses en fleurs

    je suis heureuse de chauffer au bois :)

    bisous et douce fin de semaine

  26. Those crickets sound eerie! I keep crickets for our pet salamander but they've never sounded like that ;) Monty Python is always good for a laugh, thanks.

  27. As always, dear Linda, you have the most wonderful mix of beautiful, silly and sublime. We rescued a puppy mill puppy and it was hard. He had so many issues in the beginning but we loved almost all of the fear out of him.
