Thursday doors

Good Thursday morning all. Three of the pictures were taken by a friend in Michigan, he is a very kind and talented individual, he knows of my “passion” for old buildings and doors”. The bright Xmas door is my latest find from the Dollar Tree (stores located here and in the States)

For more pictures of doors, and to follow https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/thursday-doors-november-14-2019/ Norm has a feature every Thursday, he is the brain child of Thursday Doors.

We had a great meeting yesterday at the Doll Club, even managed to raise some money for the House of Lazarus in Mountain. (food bank) Remember to give when you can.

Always live life with a smile, life is no longer a trial when we believe.

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you. Always be mindful of the situations of others not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you always think of what is important to them too.

Thursday doors

Some looked high, some looked low, we looked behind trees, deep into the trees, under rocks, finally a door was found.

Don’t give up! Keep at it until you accomplish what you’ve started or set out to do.

Had a wonderful outing, in fresh air, mostly clear skies, and welcoming animals. (for sure carrots were the drawing card)

The hidden door

If not for the little touch of red on the latch, I would have missed this door. I did include this door in another blog it was among other doors, and thought it deserved a feature of its own.

There are days when I want to blend in and disappear. Yes it happens to me, and I suspect each one of us at some time has had that feeling.. Where you just want the world to keep rolling along, so you can catch your breath, or simply veg.

Instead of worrying do something about it. It doesn’t help to over think situations such as “what if this happens?” or “Things might up that way” Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Sine my husband’s passing have found it very difficult to do some of the things that need doing. example. Going upstairs to his offices and going through paperwork. Clearing out furniture and objects has not been a problem, yet for some reason, the filing cabinets have been like the door above, I don’t seem them. If I do, I walk right by.

There are times in life, when we have to “see” the issue, and then do something about it. In my case I have asked for help. And today, I will go to church and pray, giving thanks for my blessings, and express my gratitude that I have friends to turn to, and of course, I KNOW that PL Precept # 11 Always be with God. God is always with me.

A friend passed on the other day, massive stroke, one day he was walking in the sunshine between tall trees on one of his favourite walking trails with a friend, the next day he was gone. He was liked by his friends because he always said, he was poor in material things, but had an abundance of riches spiritually and in his friendships. Caring, gentle and understanding, he will be missed by all who knew him.

lost day

Where did the 18th go? I looked down to record my sugar levels and found that I had already entered the 19th. Checking my screen, no, today was the 19th. not was, IS… stumble stumble grumble.

However I know better than to let this little blimp start my day off in a direction I do not want to take, so I took my pen and made a messy line and began again. This is something in my younger years I would not have done, I would have torn out the page and rewritten it all so that it was tidy and neat. Isn’t being another year wiser great! What is a messy page when I am the only one to see it, and I am busy lady preparing for a fun filled day.

This is THURSDAY DOORS and I have the door I want to share with you. It was given to me by a friend who just returned from a trip, she saw it, and said “dymoon”… =^_^= I wonder do friends relate doors to me because I sometimes show my hard head….oh what the heck, rofl is that how it is said these days.. Rolling on floor laughing. You know when you pass the mid century mark, you can be a little slower at catching on.

Here is my attempt at showing you this door, it is pewter, and it opens, I am wondering if it will go with the pewter door I showed you earlier that was a brooch.

To the doll club members, this witch is not finished yet.. and no, the little door will not be part of her outfit. Just saying.

PL calendar day 19 If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it. Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome. Your daily accumulation of effort towards your goals shows just how serious you are.

Happy day everyone.

Always applaud others as well as yourself

PL Calendar day 22  – When someone notices something you have done and praises you, you feel invigorated.  So let’s praise and applaud the efforts of others as well

Aplaudir as pessoas e a si mesmo

 

You coming in?

Thursday doors 2 – continued

The house can be seen as you drive into Cornwall off the 401 going west.  From the off ramp it looked so lonely, so forlorn.  The inside is completely a mess. Without proper footwear and a hard hat, I wouldn’t venture too far inside.

The area around the house  looks like at one time it  had been a tended  lawn and garden.   I’d say a farm-house, the building (that also stands empty) that you drive past to get to this one seems to attest to my thinking, but then?   It is a brick building, perhaps when the land was expropriated for the highway, they built further back.. Of course with expansions.. this is no a place for a  “home”..  – for sale (land) it would be commercial property now.

I love the old wood, even with age, it has a quiet dignity to it.  The homes being built today, I don’t see the same character or get the same feeling of seeing a structure that was built to last, a home for generations.

The basket in the upper right corner, I remember when we would find them at markets filled with fresh farm vegetables.  How long ago since the last resident put it outside, perhaps filled with fall produce or an autumn display of bright foliage.

The house has been vacant for some time.. the wild trees, shrubs and grasses have been reclaiming what was once a tended lawn.

Thanks for visiting with me.  It was important to me.. to give the house  some  love attention, maybe one last time..  the new gravel down on the road leading to the area, suggests that something is “in the wind”

Progress so necessary, but at what cost……
