Weekend Walk

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

Rescued Baby Elephant is Healing Thanks to Daily Cuddles with Orphaned Ostrich

How Mosquitoes Use Six Needles to Suck Your Blood - Deep Look

The 1940's House - The Kitchen

Uncle Arthur - Bewitched

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.

To you...you're awesome.  You're needed.  You're alive for a reason.  You're stronger than you think.


The future can be better.  You have the power to make it so.


Someday, somehow, some way, you will find a path that takes you where you want to be.


I complete me.


Do not worry, my sweet one.  Often it's just when you're ready to give up that your miracle arrives.


Move at your own pace and remember...a single tiny step you actually take is better than any big plan left undone.


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


There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever.  There are only small steps upward;  an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn't matter anymore.


Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things more clearly.


Don't watch the clock; do what it does.  Keep going. - Sam Levenson


Life is a journey and YOU hold the map.


Tend to your spirit as you would a garden and watch your whole life bloom. - Helen Russell






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!

  2. Dear Linda

    I read your blog almost daily, it is an abundance of wisdom, funny or less funny videos, just as life plays. There is always something for me, with which I can identify.
    I just can`t decide what I like most ;-)

  7. The one about distancing yourself to see things more clearly is so true. Often it's hard to really understand a situation until you take a step back. Have a fabulous weekend :-)

  8. I never realized 'til recently that elephants are very emotional animals and respond well to affection. The ostrich seems a bit out of place with the elephant, though. Love the 1940's kitchen...I reached high school in the 40s and it looks quite familiar. Those mosquitos are certainly blood-sucking good-for-nothings! Ugh! Bon weekend-a-tous.

  9. I love the quotes today. It's inspiring to see so much positivity

  10. Awww on the baby elephant and the ostrich. That's adorable.

    The 1940s kitchen. I'll pass. That's a lot of work.

    I loved Bewitched. What a great show that was.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ♥♥♥

  11. The kitchen, than..., wasn't it cosy, Linda ?!

  12. The ostrich and the elephant was a delight to see, such a lovely clip.

  13. Great videos. Love to watch baby elephant healing with friend ostrich. Bewitched was one of my favourite TV show when I was a kid. Over here we are fighting a war against mosquitoes.

  14. Hi. Great pictures and adorable the little elephant.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Linda, We used to watch Bewitched all the time...did't miss an episode! They don't make them like that anymore! The video on the English kitchen during the 40's and WWII was interesting. I can't remember our kitchens during those years but in the early 50's we did have a house that still had an outhouse (brick 2 - hole affair) instead of an indoor bathroom. Among my collectables, I do have a USA WWII ration book... Love the elephant and the ostrich! Animals are so much fun and so unpredictable too... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  18. Bonjour Linda,
    Cet après-midi,je n'arrivais pas à te laisser un commentaire je ne sais pourquoi.
    J'ai bien aimé la vidéo du Bébé éléphant et les cuisines des années 40. Elles avaient un certain charme.
    Belle fin de journée à toi. Un beau bonjour de Haute Provence

  25. Oh the elephant and ostrich! That is so precious, I do wish more humans were more like that. : ) "Ask the animals and they will teach you."

  33. These are nice, Linda. My favorite is "Someday, somehow, some way, you will find a path that takes you where you want to be." That one fits, my Dad was like that too. He was always asking me if I thought that he could be doing what I was doing, what ever.

  38. Hello Linda, wonderful post as always! Thanks for sharing the video and inspiring words. Happy weekend to you!

  39. El vídeo sobre los mosquitos muy instructivo no sabia que solo las hembras serian las portadoras de las enfermedades.
    El de la cocina de los años 40 interesante en especial para aquellos que lo vivieron y los que no para saber que no siempre fue tal como lo conocemos hoy.
    El futuro si nos empeñamos todos realmente puede ser mejor.

    Saludos.

  43. Dear Linda - that orphan Baby Elephant video was so touching and enjoyed seeing the house of the 40's too. Things appeared so much different then...somehow we think it was a sweeter time and maybe it was! Hope you have a blessed weekend. Hugs!

  44. Some excellent picks here again, thank you.

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

  47. Hi Linda. Those mossies are really scary close-up like that. I never liked them buzzing around my head but I like them even less now. Thank goodness we have birds to gobble them up.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The elephant video moved me to tears, as most elephant documentaries do, friend L ... I also remember a film about 2 old circus elephant ladies meeting and recognizing each other instantly after being many years apart ... another film was about how the herd took care of a sick newborn ... Love makes the world go round ... smiles ... Always, cat.

  55. Hello Linda!
    What a delightful blog. I am so glad you came to mine which led me back to yours. What a find! I love the videos. Sweet story of the elephant. Nasty mosquitoes as you will know from mine. My son and husband have had malaria and my daughter was down for weeks with chickungunya. The side effects stayed around for two years and even now there are times when she goes into relapse. It messes with the immune system. We had a carpet sweeper like that in the 50s! And I remember ration books!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Linda, you know I just finished reading a book about attachment issues - children who didn't form a bond with a significant adult at an early age. The bond must be both physical and emotional. Looks like animals need their daily cuddles too. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I really enjoyed yes the 1940's kitchen! Very interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I got itchy from the mosquitoes! LOL! And, people look at me weird in the summer time, wearing long shirts! I am smart! I don't want those needles in me! LOL! Love the elephant and the quotes! Big Hugs!

  59. after watching the video of the 1940's kitchen, i'm off to google more images! I forgot in the 50's we had a bread box.

  60. Love the elephant and ostrich video. :)

  61. The quote about an actual small step being better than a grand plan really hit home. I used it on my blog post today and gave you credit. Hope that was okay. But who is Princess Sassy Pants? I don't have grandchildren, so I'm in the dark a lot.

    Happy Birthday next Thursday. We're going to toast you at lunch.

  63. The future can be better. You have the power to make it so...... very true.

    The elephant ostrich duo - wonder why they didn't get any video of them together.

  64. Baby elephants are just the cutest! Grown-up elephants are cool too; we have much to learn from them.

  65. Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.

    It's is so true! Positive thinking yields positive results!
