Have a grand Thursday!
Our ancestors lived with the land, they worked hard to cultivate and bring what they hoped would be lasting foundations for generations to come.
In Perfect Liberty we celebrate our Ancestors every month on the 11th. We offer our appreciation and gratitude for all that was, that made us who we are today.
Our ancestors built and walked through many doors. Many still stand today. A humble home with a solid door, one that opens in welcome, and at night provides shelter from the cold.
Open your door today, welcome the opportunities that come your way, carpe diem …. seize the day.
Have a joy filled day, may your hours be filled with blessings that stay with you forever. Life is meant to be lived.

Hello on Thursday! This is the door I’ve tried to get to for the last month or so. I remember when this house was occupied and the welcoming decorations that adorned the door in years past.
I chanced the drive up the long drive way, but no… there was no way I could closer or move the brush to take a clear picture of the door. Such is life, it looks like the homes on the next door lot have also been purchased, and are being left to… waste away as the weather does its work on them.
Eventually the contractor will come, tear them down, some new buildings will go in, condos, or another type of multiple family building, with little to no green space for the children to play. It is happening all over, I’m sure not only in our city.
A door was often a welcoming part of the home, during times of celebrations, or events, they would be a place to decorate, with festive colours and maybe even a banner. Welcoming guests, just being plain neighbourly. People know their neighbours, children played with each other, learned about how each lived. Learned to respect and enjoy another’s culture if it was different from their own, and even if it was similar, no two families were carbon copies of the other.
My doors today, have had life take over, and are no longer the symbol of welcome they once were. Please, visit Norm 2.0 for his blog and a link to other Thursday Doors
Does your door open to new possibilities, on a regular basis?
Every day we are blessed with new opportunities. For a healthy life, it is our responsibility to keep our passage way/doorway uncluttered.

Some times when we are travelling full speed down a Provincial highway, we admire the beauty along the sides of the road. Same is true when we are on secondary roads. My mind will pick up on a detail, that later brings me to another storyline.
Two very different landscapes, yet each sends me images and text. I imagine that for many this is also true. This morning, when I opened up my mail, one of the images I saw was this one.
Of course I thought immediately of Norm’s Thursday Doors. His this week is AWESOME Norm 2.0 For those of you who know my love of the “character” doors, you will appreciate why today he had me mesmerized..
My husband has been wanting to take me back for a visit to Newfoundland and Labrador, he worked there years ago when he was still doing radio/TV… I have also been there, but just to visit, now seeing Norm’s doors, you can bet your booties, I am going to be suggesting that YES, Let’s pack up the truck, bring the dogs, we are going exploring.
See that is what an image can do for me. I love seeing the world through the lens of another, as well as my own. When we focus, a whole new world opens up for us.
BE present. always. listen giving full attention. the rewards are A MA Z I N G
I didn’t plan on a trip to the States yesterday, but there I was, having lunch in NY State, and adding to my fabric stash.
Life is good, life is great, being alive to see the fall colours, WOW, we are so lucky those of us lucky enough to experience Nature in all her seasons. Yes even winter.
PL Precept # 21 live in Perfect Liberty
Happy Thursday morning all.
I went to take a picture yesterday of a door. That was my intention, unfortunately, I drove by, missed the laneway, and could not get back. It was rush hour in Ottawa, and for some reason, where usually traffic flowing west on this road, is usually pretty good at this time of day, yesterday it wasn’t. Missed opportunity. I will go back another time.
Last night, looking for something else, look what I found. No, no way it is a door, but gall darn, could I figure out what it was. I know it is familiar. but it just wouldn’t come to me. Certainly I was intrigued.
This morning with a new day on the horizon, I had a “bingo” moment.
Here is a second picture the elf in my camera took.
How I managed this, I’ll have to ponder on a bit longer. Does anyone out there, recognized what this is?
Life is full of surprises. We need only take out our phones sometimes, to discover a whole new world. For sure we meet new friends =^_^= My Chinese name, associates me with the moon, I believe that a “moon spirit” has drifted into my virtual world……
=^_^= sunshine smiles to everyone today. May your day be blessed with the happiness and joyful memories that last today, tomorrow and always.
Our thanks to you all for your prayers, and healing thoughts, my husband begins his “treatments” next week, starting on Monday. 23 days of radiation and 5 weeks of chemo. We appreciate each and everyone of you!
Some doors, are simply necessary. required to gain access to a building for service or product. Other doors, also serve a similar need, but look very different, and what they deliver is often more philosophical, and/or spiritual.
Going through a small town, I saw lots of doors, and opportunities, but travelling on my own with a dog in the car, I felt that I shouldn’t make so many stops, although the weather was nice and breezy.
At the bank, they told me that dogs were welcome, (obviously I was not in the city, but a small town)… so… next time… I now I can bring Velcro in with me. He did very well today, it was our first time, touring the country side on our own.
We stopped at the breeders, so he could visit with his “distant relatives” and former pack mates. That was such a nice experience for us, his tail wagged, and his mates were happy to run in the enclosure and frolic in the fresh air. Since Canaille’s passing, he has been on his own, and at times.. feeling the “loss” of his friend and companion of many years.
We forget that it is not only the humans that grieve, but a pack member will also feel the loss, Keeper, a female whippet who is expecting in the next week or so, was very nurturing with him. It was a tender moment, they shared, and it lifted some of the weight of our loss from our shoulders.
On the way home we stopped at a couple of farms for fresh corn on the cob, cauliflower and broccoli. This is the time of year to really indulge. =^_^=
Guess who will have steamed cob on the corn for supper…..
Till next time, thanks for the visit.
These doors off Coventry on Belfast (Ottawa) have always caught my eye. For years now I’ve told myself I’d stop and take a picture.. it is always too busy, it is just before a busy intersection. On foot the other day… finally.. I walked the extra steps.. to capture them.
Have a wonderful day everyone.. thanks for stopping by.
