Charm of days gone by. There is so much to take in when you travel a back road. You have to know that you will not get anywhere fast, you simply accept the moments of discovery. This was the scene that beckoned loud enough for me to stop and actually get out. It is aged, tired and worn, but yet it is standing proud. Wind, snow, ice, rain, yes they have left their mark, but the place, for me , still had a quiet dignity. It stood, just off a paved road, but the surrounding land, was rich and bore the remnants of a bountiful crop.
I left today, open to the possibilities, and the Universe provided “seek and you shall find” PL Precept #1 Life is Art
The day was a happy one, and totally productive in a very creative way. I hope you enjoyed the same.
had a good co-pilot that helped..
shared adventure, doubles the fun!
We begin our journeys with such innocence
so many dreams, hopes, genuine happiness
we find ourselves discovering something new every day.
Why do some of us stop discovering, and allow routine to take over..
These dolls I found the other day
Have been around, the top one probably more so than the other one
Where have they been, what stories could they tell.
These little treasures will come with me to the next Doll meeting
hopefully I will learn more there.
For the moment they have a new place to stay and experiences to acquire.
Every day is a new opportunity to live another story line, every day is a new beginning.
Look down, look up, look around, pleasures abound, waiting to be found.

Being Attentive Makes Life More Enjoyable
Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small. By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy in things.
Treasures found yesterday, wonderful bricks, a sign with history, and a set of doors to a root cellar.
Does anyone know what these doors are called? I want to say trap doors, but.. I am not sure? I found wonderful doors, but will save them for Norm’s Thursday Doors.
It was misting off and on, practically all day but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves. I have this lovely friend who I can always count on to get in touch at the last moment and suggest a road trip. Whooo hoooo out of the blue, we took off for an adventure that led us to a wonderful tea room in Perth, Ontario. We really did well, we got there early enough to get a table at the lace curtained table where we could enjoy the street traffic on Perth’s main street at the noon hour.
I didn’t think of it, or I would have taken pictures of the delicate china our lunch was served on, Bonnie had a fancy tea, while I stayed with my ice water.. We both tried the Thai soup, while Bonnie had a sandwich I had a wrap, all delicious. YES we both indulged in dessert. Uh huh, not telling, calories were not counted. Address will be shown below.
Doing something ..just because… can be a wonderful way to enjoy a mini vacation when none was planned.
Happiness is something that comes from within. Doing something that brings smiles and a lot of chuckling is a super way to make a dull weather day, a whole lot of fun. Good food, and great company Whoooo hoooo Katchoo.. =^_^=

Crossroads Tea Room (Perth, Ontario, Canada)
Once alive with tourists, visitors enjoying a bit of history while touring the carefully tended gardens, and game park nearby. This “car” now sits, empty. A relic days gone by.
Plattsburg, New York. USA, May 14.2017 taken by myself Q – Dymoon
Spent a lazy day, painting and trying to resolve a technical problem on the PC. Am I the only one who asks, PC or Apple? I have both, each has their own special features that I enjoy. but neither satisfies me 100%
Such is the way of life. A philosophical conversation years back, Can a husband and a lover be one and the same? Or do you have to settle on which qualities you want to spend the rest of your life with.
Don’t you just love the solid look of this old charmer, it has been so well looked after. While someone wanted the top one, but has left it out in the elements, the inside of it is ruined.
This beauty was ready to roll. The dealer wasn’t open when we happened by, and there was no signage on the vehicle. So I was left with no choice but to steal a kiss and run. =^_^=
Our Honda Ridgeline was secure in the knowledge that she can accommodate all 4 us, in a way the two seater could never do….You may love the wicked ones, but it is the solid good drives that keeps you humming from year to year. =^_^= .
I appreciate a good-looking body, especially one that has been well looked after. You can always tell when there is pride of ownership. Today we take too much for granted. Life is to enjoy, and living is about exploring and discovering. When we are internally happy, the world is a beautiful place.
PL Principle # 3 I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.
PL Precept #10 Love yourself and Others.
