Charlie O'Shields

  • That’s so wonderful to hear! Sounds like it’s going to be a fun month of creating ahead for you! 😃💕 Yay for keeping that wonder of a child, and the constant courage. Little kids assume everything they create is an instant masterpiece. I don’t see why we adults should ever feel differently about our work! Hugs to you, my friend!

  • That’s exactly what dazzling hope looks like! Good friends are always a wonderful thing! 😃💕 And thanks for sharing your truth… it’s never easy when we know we have to wait on getting our dreams. But, I’ve always found that if it’s a really good dream, it’s always worth the wait. And what we have now, in this moment, even if it doesn’t amount to…[Read more]

  • Thanks so much, Mary! 😃💕 Hehe… a little mischief at the holidays can also be fun! lol Hope you have a lovely season!

  • Thanks so much!! 😃💕 So happy you enjoyed this post. Glad to hear your holiday editing is coming along! hehe I hope you have a beautiful season ahead!

  • For our final November prompt of “Decorations,” I ended up with a little mouse marveling at shiny holiday ornaments. As we head into the month of December, I do hope you’ll join us for our “Happy Holidays” art

    • Charlie you are a poet at heart, those beautiful words — I feel your love and happy wonder. I know the three of you will have an incredible Christmas. Enjoy and give thanks!

      Done with my editing I mean decorating after six days changing things around on the poor little tree. I got it though. Except that today I had to fix a branch gap.

      Who knows what tomorrow brings….

      • Thanks so much!! 😃💕 So happy you enjoyed this post. Glad to hear your holiday editing is coming along! hehe I hope you have a beautiful season ahead!

    • Beautiful reminder of what makes the holiday so special and that little mouse looks like he has mischief on his mind. Sweet!!!
      Have a wonderful visit with your family!!!

    • Marisela you must find someone there to talk with and get some help. The best way to heal is to come out of yourself by helping others. Find some volunteer work in the community. The Catholic church is always looking for helpers. Seniors alone always need companionship and there are agencies set up for volunteer visiting etc. Daycares use volunteers. The only way to come out of yourself and the misery is to reach out to others and help them. In helping others (loving your neighbour) you fill your own soul.

      Pursuant to that, try not to use occasions (Christmas, Easter, birthday etc) as markers for your journey becasue then you might give up just before the miracle, as the famous saying indicates.

      The only one who can change your life is you. God will get you there. Ask. Seek. Find. Doors open.

      The tree finally did what I told it to. Now I can go edit the world…?

But, I’ve always found that if it’s a really good dream, it’s always worth the wait. And what we have now, in this moment, even if it doesn’t amount to anything close to that beautiful dream, there’s always something beautiful to cherish. Like this virtual hug that I’m sending your way!! ❤️

    • Hmm. Get a notebook and a good pen, the kind you can’t feel in your hand and then take the cap off, helps us write faster and under creative brain. Write all this kind of stuff into the journal. Yes I forgot about the pandemic when I said do volunteer work, oops. Take care.

    • Marisela the pen I use is a PaperMate 0.8 F . There are two hearts atop each other between Paper and Mate. I use the black ones, with the cap off. I will look for the video.

  • Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 And welcome back my friend!! And seasonal winter fruits sound amazing too! Truly… I just love food, so any food that arrives once a year is super special. Sending you warm hugs in return! Much love!

  • Thanks so much, Gary! 😃💕 I’m so thrilled for the long weekend… can’t wait!

  • Aww thanks so much, Zoie! 😃💕 I’m so happy you enjoy my stories!! Hope you have very Happy Holidays ahead!

  • Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 I love blankets… we have so many of them! hehe Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

  • Thanks so much, Mary! 😃💕 Yep… we’re going to relax and hibernate through the long weekend. Can’t wait! Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Thanks so much, Jacob! 😃💕 Blanket weather is the best when it’s not too terribly cold. hehe And eeeeek!! The countdown to Christmas is nearly here!!!

  • Thanks so much, Irene! 😃💕 Sounds like you really know how to enjoy the season! Hibernating during this time of year is a great strategy! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Aww thanks so much, Irene! 😃💕 Glad you enjoyed this one!

  • Indeed! Best time of the year!! 😃💕

  • That sounds like a good plan! We definitely do that for anything on the exterior of the house. hehe… Our neighbors do enough to take up the slack! hehe 😉 💕 Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Thanks so much! 😃💕 Hehe… sounds like quite a process! Enjoy! And have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Thanks so much, Kathy! 😃💕 Indeed! It’s wonderful time of year to hibernate! Happy Thanksgiving!!

  • Thanks so much, Janna! 😃💕 Happy Thanksgiving!!

  • Thanks so much, Janna! 😃💕 I’m so happy these bring back wonderful childhood memories!

  • For our prompt of “Hibernate” today, I ended up with this little bear snuggling under a blanket. The weather has gotten quite cold where I live and so Philippe and I have pulled out all of our warm blankets.

    • Yours is the way to embrace the season! We should take the cue from Nature. Get cozy, hibernate, re-charge, and spend precious time with loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving, Charlie!

    • Charlie have fun with your tree. I erected mine this morning. First the branches had to be edited. Two hours. Then I took the string of lights and draped those over the tree but left their actualy placement til I feel like editing those for another long time. Then I’ll have the ornaments. Every day I edit everything til anytime between Dec. 24 – 25 and then it comes down. Happens every year.

      We had our Thanksgiving a month ago — enjoy yours!

    • I didn’t have too much planned for the holidays, which is good since I’ll be doing some unexpected travel between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m just going to enjoy all the lights and decorations that everyone else has up, and not worry about having to do any of it, or clean any of it up afterward!

      • That sounds like a good plan! We definitely do that for anything on the exterior of the house. hehe… Our neighbors do enough to take up the slack! hehe 😉 💕 Happy Thanksgiving!

    • So, I do like your description of hibernating like a bear…that is exactly how I feel these days…we’ve had a busy fall, but now get nestled in. Cozy blankets are everywhere…on the couches and chairs, on the beds… you can always get warm here. The shorter days and cooler nights do make me “hibernate”…sleep in longer, and I do enjoy this b/c I am retired now. So Happy Thanksgiving yo you and yours. Enjoy your family time, and quiet time.
      All the best of everything!

      • Thanks so much, Irene! 😃💕 Sounds like you really know how to enjoy the season! Hibernating during this time of year is a great strategy! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Adorable! It’s meant to get a lot colder here over the weekend, it might actually feel like blanket weather! I feel a bit like hibernating at this time of year, at least until December, when the Christmas countdown officially begins – music, lights… yay! Have a fun Thanksgiving!

      • Thanks so much, Jacob! 😃💕 Blanket weather is the best when it’s not too terribly cold. hehe And eeeeek!! The countdown to Christmas is nearly here!!!

    • Hibernate is precisely what we plan to do for Thanksgiving and I am soooo looking forward to it!! Hope you have the happiest Thanksgiving ever!!!

      • Thanks so much, Mary! 😃💕 Yep… we’re going to relax and hibernate through the long weekend. Can’t wait! Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Oh Charlie Baby Bear is so delightful. I read your descriptions of this season and I think to myself “I have to be more like Charlie”. But your stories of what you are doing cuddle me up in a blanket like Baby Bear is cuddled up and I enjoy each and every one. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and the tree decorating. 🙂

    • Very cute doodle, Charlie. I hope you both have a great thanksgiving.

    • Indeed! Best time of the year!! 😃💕

    • Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 I love blankets… we have so many of them! hehe Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

    • Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 And welcome back my friend!! And seasonal winter fruits sound amazing too! Truly… I just love food, so any food that arrives once a year is super special. Sending you warm hugs in return! Much love!
