Thursday Doors NZ +

I can only begin to imagine what the fragrance must be around that wisteria at the time Shirley took the pictures. For more pictures of doors around the world, visit Dan’s site for today’s Thursday door feature. Being a Penquins fan, I was delighted today to see his own post features doors from Pittsburgh, PA. Here is the link…https://nofacilities.com/2022/10/13/driving-by-pittsburgh-doors/


Thanks to Eliza I was on a site that had a picture of a male wild turkey.,

sorry I can’t find the photographer’s name I searched again this morning, she was from Ontario Canada.
photographer Antonio Salvadori, 2007 Texas, USA

and here is a picture of the ones I am getting at Mer Bleue..

Good Morning everyone, my eyes are tired already from trying to find the photographer for the top photo.. time marches forward.. wishing you all a happy Thursday, this is today’s PL Calendar quote of the day.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Dan, thanks again for the pictures of Pittsburgh, you just saved me a long drive.=^_^=. I have been a Penguins fan for years.. not because I was a huge hockey fan, but because I loved penguins, and besides friends live in Philly and are Flyers fans. ^^^ you know how it is ^^^ Go Penguins !!!!!!

He shoots – He SCORES !!!!!!!! I think there is a game in October between Pittsburg and the Canadians Oct. 17, they play the Maple leafs Nov. 11 the Senators on Jan. 18/23 But the only one that will have me checking the scores will be NOV 25 when they play the Flyers. (hahahah).. hey.. not me, I’m not a hockey fan!

5 – 0 Penguins!

first rose of season

Good Morning everyone!

Timing.. Today’s calendar is about Timing

PL Calendar day 19

The Moment you notice is the best timing

Procrastinating will only weigh you down.  The best tie to do something is when you notice it.


For any hockey fans… my Penguins won last night   5  –  0  When it comes to timing this team “rocks”

LOL  what a way to end the day last night!!

Smiles are lasting into the new day!!! waaaaa hoooohooooo!!! Ka Chew!

PL calendar lesson 21 – accept everything with appreciation

he shoots, he scores

Even if we are not hockey fans, at some time in our lives we have seen, heard or even gone to a game.  If it wasn’t or isn’t hockey it could be some other sport, soccer, baseball, there are a lot of people who are enthusiastic fans.

In hockey, like in soccer, there is a goal keeper, or tender. obviously there are other positions, but it is the goal tenders that I seem to have a special interest in.  they function differently than the other players, and their training and  skills sets are honed in a different way.  There powers of observations tend to include a lot of mental agility that they spend hours developing moves to instinctively kick in with what computes with their visual intake.  I can watch a good goalie in action and be totally mesmerized by their performance. (soccer since this is what I have watched the most of)… now I have an interest in a Penguin player, Matthew Murray who has made 47 saves to lead the Penguins in a 3-2- victory against the Capitals, giving Pittsburgh a 2-1 series lead.

I know it takes a TEAM to win a game, not just one player, the spirit and the fabric of their cohesiveness is at the core of a TEAM’s overall performance.  Whether it is Sidney Crosby (centerman) or Kris Letang (defenseman),  Pat Hornqvist spoke after game 3,  Murray has been interviewed,  the players all seem to have a sense of confidence and speak of their performances during games in a positive way, even when discussing what happened during a game where they loss.

Nooooooooooooooooooo for all of you who know me wondering if I have fallen off a glacier.  I have not taken to hockey… but I do appreciate teamwork, and in this case my love of penguins, and a bit of friendly competition, has me rooting for the Pittsburgh Penguins, that they have good goal tending is bonus.  When my son thought he wanted to play hockey, he wanted to be a goal tender. So I heard all about the goal tenders of the day.  Watching Soccer honed this interest …  for me the “specialist” on the teams are the goalies

In every day life, we are our own goal tenders.  Do we let challenges that are coming at us, around us, affect our lives are we passive….. no, to be happy, and to live the way we want to live, > in a state of happiness< ( the best antidote to stress and stress related disease)  a dedicated athlete, practices daily, it is a way of life… so too must we, focus and live in the NOW.

Like what is that!  That is a picture of my fossil purse, (texture)  I bought this one a couple of years ago while wandering downtown in a high-end shopping outlet that draws  tourists.  It was a purchase that I made in one of my “gotta have” moments.  No real reason or rhyme, I just really  took to the bag.  It wasn’t even a style that went with “my lifestyle” or manner of dress.  I just liked it.. it was one of the moments where you see something and .. you don’t think of the price, or what you’ll do with, how you’ll incorporate into your wardrobe.. you just buy it and bring it home.

These are pictures of clocks I found but resisted.  I stood there and considered them, appreciated them, but didn’t get to the stage where I REALLY wanted them.. so I took their pictures instead.

IMG_1347

Now what does that tell you, have I changed my shopping M.O.  noooo, just found an easier way to enjoy some of the treasures I find, and not end up with a lot of clutter, “just because”

IMG_1348

I also discovered Jo-Annes, I knew the one store, but had not experienced the store in a bigger city centre… had a great time.. here I did come out with a rather full bag of goodies. The fact that I was unable to use my  lap top for most of my time away, contributed a lot to the items I was gathering since they are tools of the trade, that fuel my creativity in a manner that will bring in extra pennies. =^_^=

IMG_1343

I found these interesting, who and how can anyone wear such high heels.  Gone are those days for me, I did find the decoration down the back of the heel fun, so they made the photo capture, and so did this little doll.   cute as a button, but certainly not something i was going to come home with.

IMG_1231

Now this cheerful little fellow, he was cute too.  Since I have a friend who delights in rooting for the Flyers, I only thought it fitting to perhaps, send some Penguin cheer his way, for those of you reading this, Flyers and Penguins are hockey teams.  I think the Penguins are doing well???  obiously they are a happy lot. IMG_1255

I can see all my friends out there, chuckling over my time away with that knowing.. there she goes again, shopping… Ha.. on you.  I wasn’t shopping I was on a photo excursion.  Let me look, I’ll show you a picture that had nothing to do with being in a treasure shop.

This was a charming church we found on our way from Syracuse to Watertown, It appealed to me enough that we circled around and parked so I could catch it for you.  You were on my mind all the time.. always, I was looking for subjects that could or might interest you. (really)  nooo you did not see the sign on the ground, besides the shop was closed.

Really we had a great time and weather, except for when we tried to see the falls, in Niagara Falls, both Canadian side and American,  There we encountered rain mist,fog,clouds,etc. so thick that we saw absolutely nothing of the falls themselves.

IMG_1225

.. I missed reading your posts, following along on your adventures, discovering new far away places, that those of you who are travelling keep us  waiting for the next chapter and verse with delightful captures. I obviously have more pictures, but there is lots of time ahead.  For now just wanted to say I’m back.  Oh and quickly, I discovered on the Canadian side, another one of those designer outlet malls, and… err… I now own another purse like the one I started this blog with.. only in blue.  I was over the moon.. really.. Canadian funds even!!!!

Can a Puffin count for a penguin?

The only vintage cars I found this time, were models, good ones, but not good enough to bring back with me.

IMG_1324

I have totally left the building, when I find myself again, I’ll be back..

Meanwhile..  Happy Monday everyone!

Namaste      –      Oyashikiri

PS I am unable at this time to find another file of pictures.. you have been spared.

Smile and be happy !
