I woke with too many thoughts running through my head. So much so, I wanted to turn over and pull the covers up over my head. Then I remembered that today was the 21st. and a day for giving thanks for the blessings in my life. Followed by that thought came the reminder that my late husband’s birthday is this week-end.
These doors are on campus in Japan (PL headquarters Foreign Student building). We would roll out the futons at night to sleep, and then roll them back up during the day.
I think I may have a fuddled day. My thoughts seem to be drifting from one place to another. This next picture was in Quebec. (top picture too)
Maybe I will just stay where ever my day takes me… and say thank you for whatever comes my way.
Thank you thank you thank you… Let’s live with gratitude towards everyone and everything all day today.

Sorry folks, I’ll just say thank you.. and log off.. the grey cells are just not wanting to activate. As I continue on with my day, I’ll remember that every moment is an opportunity to practice (mindfulness) and be aware that – this too shall pass….
which door would you like to explore =^_^= Doors are the keepers of “mysteries’ they come in all shapes and sizes, no matter the age, the shape, or location, they tell a story. These doors were all taken during my fun adventure on the Quebec side of the Ottawa river the other day. I can’t […]
I had a day yesterday that didn’t start out well. I got hit by a taxi backing out of the lane across from where I live. Smacked right into the passenger side of my car. NOT happy. The driver had two children in the car, I heard her calling in to her dispatch, she looked both ways, she didn’t know where I came from?? hello… that is why cars have rear view mirrors … I had come out of my laneway and was on the road, ready to drive away. Because she was at fault, my insurance is handling all the details, but I will have to take the car for an estimate etc. blaaaaaa…..
Having said that, I wanted an escape.. I remembered this picture that Shirley had taken, with the red door, isn’t it the perfect little get-away… hmmm hope it has running water and electricity.. LOL I might like to escape, but I do love my creature comforts.
Think “Now is the time” instead of “it’s no use now” Don’t give up by thinking its too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.
Pouring rain here today, glad we got out for a drive Monday in sunshine. We ate at a restaurant that is on the water’s edge, I like the food there, and love watching the rushing water while I enjoy a companionable visit with a friend and feed the taste buds. I have never seen this kind of door anywhere else but at this restaurant. The other doors were found along the side streets on our way into the little town.
Have a great day everyone. I am feeling a bit like the doors today .. been around awhile, still function, but tired and a shade worn. LOL its called “character”
Num’s work has always been a joy for me, he is always taking his skills one step further. I thought I’d let you see Ottawa through his eyes.. there are doors for you to discover.
It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.
