Why not. I am on a bit of a rant today. Where are all the farm toys. Where does one find a small John Deere tractor, OK it doesn’t have to be John Deere, any old tractor will do. How about an old truck, a hay baler, one of those thing a-ma-bobs that make rows in the earth …little chicken coops, barn, toys that help depict farm life, or life on a farm.
Is that passé .. I guess I have not looked at children’s toys lately. I found construction, firemen, police, lots of race cars, and space stuff, no farm equpment, or buildings. (second hand, and thrift shops)
Busy trying to locate items for a friend who is doing a diorama of life on a farm, I didn’t get to my doors. Sorry. Wait… maybe I have a barn.
After traipsing around town the last few days.. I feel like the door on the right. Oh dear, I just flipped open an old PL calendar, it reads.. Your surroundings reflect your state of mind. Think it is time for a nap.
Happy Thursday everyone. Tomorrow is another day.
HELLO ? anyone home,
years have come and gone,
somehow, somewhere along the way,
the grass,. just grew and grew,
no one walked this way.
now there is no path to this door
it waits patiently to be opened again
so please come again another day
Door lovers, I cannot tell you the joy I felt when I looked into a jewelry case, and saw this brooch. Pewter.
I drove food up to the food bank some 30, 40 miles from home. I always wander around a bit and try to find something that catches my eye in their “boutique” or “home decor etc”…. this time… I felt truly rewarded. A pewter door, brooch. YaHOOOOO

Some doors should just stay shut, and others should be explored. A door opened yesterday, that gave vent for deep rooted anger and hurt to escape. Fortunately I was able to close the door again. But it is obviously one I will have to explore again, at another time.
My Mother passed away 2 years ago, my husband one year ago. There is more processing to do. I give thanks for the blessing of friends.
PL Precept # 5 One’s self is lost by being emotional
PL Precept # 4 Being annoyed limits your expression.
Question, when your hurt is disrespected and tossed aside, my reaction is to withdraw, so that I can be respectful as much as I can of another persons stubbornness… Why is it so difficult for me to accept. I am not a masochist .. I distance myself my preference to be to live in peace and be happy. However, there are times, it isn’t that simple. So by golly, shut that darn door, and leave it closed, in fact, bring the nails and hammer and I will nail it shut.
How serious am I.
We can open a door and walk away, or we can look out and shut the door, staying inside, or …….. ?????
