Saturday Solace

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

How Aromatherapy Works - Healing with Essential Oils

How Beavers Build Dams - Leave it to Beavers, PBS

How to Clean and Sanitize the Kitchen

Organizing for Safety

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.

Love...peace....joy...hope.  Share the spirit of the season wherever you go!


Canada...we are not Americans.  Not everyone lives in an igloo.  We do not bathe in maple syrup, but if we could we would.  It's not winter 12 months a year. We have a goose named after us.  It's O.K. to say "EH!"  Not everyone has a pet polar bear.  We think the mountie's uniforms is stylish.  The beaver is a cherished animal.  The best country in the world since 1867.  :)


Let's stop believing that our differences make us superior or inferior to one another.


No matter what happens, life is too short to be anything but happy.  Live fully. Have fun. Love lots. Learn lots. Take chances. Let go. Face forward. Don't let people bring you down.


A secret to happiness:  never allow another person to control your emotions.


There's one problem you face after becoming a butterfly.  What will the caterpillars say?  Will they make you feel guilty or weird for the changes you've made?  Never mind the caterpillar chatter.  Spread your wings and fly high.


If you want to outdo where you are, outbe who you are.  Outbelieve your limitations.


Smile.  Some of the happiest days of your life are coming up in 2016!  :)


Today's TO BE list:  grateful; giving; smiling; loving; silly; thoughtful; compassionate; friendly; creative; innovative; kind; MYSELF.


Gratitude in advance is the most powerful creative force in the universe.


Work for a cause, not for applause.  Life life to express, not to impress.


Let us feed the hungry, house the homeless, stop the killing and provide medicine for the sick.  When we have accomplished that, we can sit around and argue about religion.






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

  2. So many good bits but I especially enjoyed the beaver video. I had no idea they used rocks like that or that iron is why their teeth are orange! I already loved beavers, but now they're even cooler-if possible. :)

  3. "Let's stop believing that our differences make us superior or inferior to one another." Yes, acceptance, tolerance...mutual respect for one another, all these are so very important in our world today. All men are brothers, we are all the same.

  15. Lots of suggestions for cleaning up and straightening up your life, but I think I'm too old and lazy at this point to do them! :) Love that Canadian comment...Eh? And the Raphael kitty is too cute!

    I agree with you Linda. I remember when a person came across the Ambassador Bridge in summer time and he wanted to know where the ice & snow was. He didn't know that Canada has a warm time just like he has in the US. I wonder how stupid some Americans, remember I said SOME Americans can be. Oh well.
    Have a great time my friend. See ya.

  22. Good morning, Linda! I really enjoyed each of your videos today! I am a firm believer in aromatherapy, and I have experienced many scents through my massages over the decades. And beavers! I am fascinated by them. I always found a way to work them into our third grade curriculum. Once I had my third graders all psyched to see beavers at the Denver Zoo, only to discover that the beaver exhibit I was remembering was at the Calgary Zoo! Big oops! So we saw otters and meerkats instead. I didn't know that you shouldn't mix bleach and soap which I have been doing forever. I shall change my ways. Not only am I inspired by visiting your blog, I often learn something I can apply immediately in my life! If people could do what Higher Perspective's quote suggests, the world would be a much better place! I shall return to catch up after I have touched bases with all my blogging friends! Have a great day my Montreal friend! Love and Hugs!

  23. I loved the video on how to sanitize your kitchen. I didn't know about some of it. I did know about the wet sponge in the microwave though. I do that often.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  24. I do love that Meanwhile In Canada pic, especially the part about if we could we would bathe in maple syrup!

    I've seen that PBS doc on beavers. They're such amazing animals.

  25. Bonjour Linda, c'est incroyable de voir le castor à l'oeuvre, dommage qu'ils font tellement de dommage... Bise et bon week-end dans la joie!

  26. Dearest Linda - so enjoyed watching the beavers build their dam. Such an interesting animal with amazing capabilities. Maybe people could take a few lessons in building bridges by working together. Thanks sweet friend for wonderful quotes and art. Have a blessed day.

  27. There's lots of wise happiness advice here, Linda, thanks for all the positivity you find for us.
    Love the last picture of the very happy flying cat.

  28. I enjoyed these! We have a cottage in northern Ontario and living close to border life, we like to think of ourselves as "Honorary Canadians." :) We love our beavers (though this last year they cut down several trees and flooded or yard!) and maple syrup, too.
    Cold here in northern Minnesota, as well. We're under a windchill advisory this weekend, -25 to -40 windchill values. Winter reality finally arrived this past week or so! Warm thoughts your way!!

  29. Haha, that Canada t-shirt is so funny! My mom is from Canada, although she moved here when she was fourteen, but she definitely still says "eh?" enough that people notice where she's from!

  30. Last summer we went to a beaver damn. There was this amazing foot bridge that went around and through the whole thing, going in different directions. We were able to see up close just how intricate the damns are and how long they must take.

  31. This is the first time ever I have been disappointed in something I read on your blog. Tell the truth, Linda: you're bathing in maple syrup occasionally, aren't you? I so want to believe that about Canadians, ha ha ha! Something made you sweet, right? Love ya, buddy!

    ReplyDelete
  32. The power of a beaver's jaw and teeth is absolutely mind-blowing.

  33. Hi, Linda! Hope you are doing well these days. I especially appreciated your quote regarding differences. Whose to judge? I usually tend to put myself down, but you have shared several quotes which helped me rise above the old ways of thinking? Thank you for making a difference in my life! Hugs, de

  40. Lo de los tópicos que nos dejas sobre Canadá al igual que los que circulan sobre España y supongo otros lugares como es habitual no son ciertos.

    Saludos.
