We begin our journeys with such innocence
so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness
we find ourselves discovering something new every day.
Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..
These dolls I found the other day
Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one
Where have they been, what stories could they tell.
These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting
hopefully I will learn more there.
For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to acquire.
Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.
Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.

Being Attentive Makes Life More Enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
Happy Ancestors’ Day everyone. A month ago today, we had the service for Brian, it will be another couple of days, before he will have been “gone” two months. Somehow, time has lost a place with me at the moment. I am in a “temporary/holding” zone. It is thanks to my wonderful friends, and thoughtful neighbours that I get through each day.
I never know if I will be overwhelmed with an emotion, or find myself wrapped in a cloak of silence.
My friends seem to know just when to call or be present, for this I am truly grateful. On the surface years of wearing a “public” persona, has stood me well. At times I feel like I am cast in stone, and watching the world go by, while other times…. the sunlight just quietly misses me, letting me hide in the shade.
I am thankful for who I am today, my world is evolving and changing, I am so appreciative of you my friends, who stand by me, help me in this time of such overwhelming emotions, uncertainty and uncharted tomorrows. Thank you.
PL day 11
Be thankful for who you are today.
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you throughout your life. Show your appreciation, by giving back to the world around you.
I say hooks because that is how they were advertised. The display was way up high, the store might have had problems with them disappearing, they are so cute. (Ikea)
Miniature buffs, they are metal.
Have a great day everyone! Be enthusiastic, step outside the box, turn left instead of right, you might just discover something new and interesting.
With the blistering heat and the high humidity, I scanned through back files to find a picture that was more welcoming to my wilting enthusiasm for another summer day.
Good morning everyone, how are you all doing this July 2. In the States I guess you are winding down or up for the big celebrations coming your way in a few days. Here In Canada we are recovering from the sweltering heat wave that lasted for all of the Canada Day celebrations. Last night I was outside when I felt the change in the air, the build up of clouds, and the whipping of branches as the non descriptive breeze turned into a very expressive energy that was very interesting to see.
I stood stock still, wanting to take in this explosion of dynamic vitality that surrounded me. I could smell the moisture that was building, I knew that it would only be seconds and it would start to pour. Lightening flashed, thunder rolled, and then, only after seeing the light flash across the sky, did I move. Just as I closed the door, I heard the drumming on the windows.. the rain had arrived.
Thinking it is coming.. makes me feel a whole lot better. =^_^=
A start to a new work week, continuing your summer vacation, whatever your plans, stay cool, don’t overdo, and most importantly, be happy.

Be Forever Young and Seek New Challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever changing world.
This door is more welcoming during the summer months, when there are blossoms blooming to invite you to enjoy the view.
These days I feel like a door. I stand ready, each day a new “visitor” comes to call, today the stove called. It blew a gasket, sending smoke and fumes into the air. The fire alarms chimed in to really add to the excitement.
The dogs and I just looked at one another. I ran for the stove, turned it off, opened the door, got the fans going, and and and.
New stove will be delivered next week. Interesting menu if you care to stop on by. My house is the one with the happy weeds, the new weed whacker won’t start. No wonder the house with the roses is smiling … it knows there is no competition this year.
Don’t worry, I’m as happy as can be. I got to post a door this Thursday. Yipeee… For more doors, check out Norm 2,0 Thursday doors
thank goodness I am a positive person. I’ve had to deal with a cracked coffee maker, a burnt out toaster, a new weed wacker that is being finicky, and a stove that said I quit. Good for me. I get all new toys.
We are lucky to have a “Free Library” on our street. There are a couple in the neighbourhood. I’ve had a peak once or twice, but haven’t had the time to take advantage of the possibilities.
I have been looking for a book to read, but even though we have a ton of books in the house, it is interesting, that I found the interesting enough when I bought them, way back when, but today, they hold no interest. None. I pick one up, read the summary and put it back down. I found one that is a mystery, the detectives are sheep???? what???? when I got that, or where I got it, I have no idea.
Today is anther day, full of promise. Let’s see what is in “store” for me today. Life is full of surprises. Another present? Another discovery?
Till Next time

There is no reason to hold back
If you skimp on the paint, then your painting will not turn out well. Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest
That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.
For some reason, this patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed. No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye. I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between them.
The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled. I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now. As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.
The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me. Like the seasons, and the changing skies. We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE… Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow. What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth, blossomed into forever.
