I hope you pop over to my blogger page and check out my post here:
For the long weekend we took the opportunity to go back home for a visit with family and friends. There never is enough time to see everyone and do all the things I imagine possible. We did get to spend some quality time with family and a few close friends and get some awesome seafood. Next time will be round 2!
Imagine my delight when hubby exclaimed, “Hey, there are the doors for your blog post this week!” as we drove away from my sister’s house. Of course we turned around so I could get some good shots. In the moment we made the turn around we zipped through a nice neighborhood with some pretty cool doors as well!
But these were the icing on the cake!
What a wonderful display of love, acceptance and right thinking. These lovely doors were on display out in front of St John’s United Methodist Church. in Baton Rouge, LA. Check out their website for more info on their progressive ministry and outreach programs.
The last doors in our weekend showed up when we took a detour on our way home via Biloxi, Mississippi, I just had to put my toes into some sand. This little ‘relief station” says it all. We were there in BR at the time and felt the impact of this storm, of many storms over the years that, for many, were just reports on tv. For the residents of these Southern states, it was more than. real.
You’ll have to zoom in to see the placards marking the water levels for the various storms that affected Biloxi and the other Southern states. WP has informed me I have no more room for photos so I am having to adjust my image sizes in order to import new images. I can’t afford the ‘upgrade’.
Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend and do check out the other great doors over at Norm’s place.
When we went in search of breakfast on our recent trip to Chattanooga, we thought we hit the jackpot at Puckett’s, a local bar and grill venue with a lot of history and a tasty breakfast. Conveninetly located within an easy walking distance of our hotel and just across from the Tennessee Aquarium, it seemed the perfect stop on our way to see what the Aquarium had to offer.
The main doors were oddly unremarkable, although nice. The restaurant name is plainly visible on the huge awning that spans the length of the buiding but there was no sign on the door or near the door. The only indication we made it to the right place was a printed door mat as you step inside the front doors.
But look at that breakfast! Simple but yummy. And the biscuit tasted even better than it looks. I loved the mug so much we had to snag one for home. Of course we paid for it, silly. 🙄
I only wished we had more time to return for an evening meal when there was live music, but maybe next visit. The inside is appealing, open and warm-a lot like Cheers!
It wasn’t until I needed to visit the ladies’ room before we headed to the Aquarium that I found them! All in the ladies’ room. 🙊🙈
From the main door…
to the stall doors, which were so cool…
I was tickled to find such a treasure trove of doors. Then in the hall was a cache of train memorabilia that was the icing on the cake.
This time train memorabilia, next time real train experience!
This post is brought to you as part of our host Norm Frampton’s weekly doorscursion event, where participants post about doors they have seen, photographed, sketched…any doors. You can make a beeline over to his blog and get the schedule and itinerary for this event.
PS..tomorrow is Fridaaaay!!!
I fear my countenance now has changed,
the wear and tear of life has stained
the cracks grow long,
what once so strong
now wounded, bleeding
as my soul pleading
begs for release from
time’s relentless march,
the Minutemen beat at the door,
I ask for just a moment more-
Where were we when
began the end?
Why did we sneer
the thought that all might end
and no longer could pretend
still called this life so real..
Future is but a memory
and past has long forgotten me.
But this sweet moment
here and now
etched on creased
and weary brow
will for eternity be pressed
in memory’s book of

Yep, that’s me most often. When it comes to my creative endeavors and meeting deadlines for prompts, I am not as dedicated as my Mussel Loving friend Dan of No Facilities . He meets all deadlines with ‘i’s’ dotted and ‘t’s’ crossed, with humor and nice photos.
I am more aptly categorized as scattered and prone to whimsy when it comes to sharing those things that I do for fun. I have often been asked why, since I enjoy doing so many things creatively, I don’t do ‘such and such’ as a business. For me, to focus all my energy on one particular pastime would steal the joy from it and also possibly prohibit me from doing those other things I love so much. I guess maybe I am akin to the bees and butterflies I love to photograph so much, flitting from bloom to bloom and drinking in the sweetness each has to offer, but not lingering long enough to miss another possibility.
So, for #ThursdayDoors I am late, but sliding in to home base for the #SoCS prompt by our host Linda Hill
Forgive me for not being more present on WP lately but I have definitely spent the last week enjoying life’s precious offerings so that I could share them with you, my precious friends in the blogging world. I am hoping your #Free48 is filled with many precious moments. Hugs!
Last Saturday’s adventure led us to Sope Creek National Park in Marietta, Georgia. I was so thrilled to be in the shadows of the woods, dip my toes in the cool water and breathe softly with Mother Nature. Precious indeed.
My art time is also precious to me, though it takes me much longer to complete a piece than most folks. Still working on my devilish mermaid who loves her Old Fashioned made with Angel’s Envy. 😉
Finding moments to whip up energy bites can be a challenge too, but I never regret the time spent. Yummy!
And, when you say it often enough, someone finally obliges!!
Now, here’s another favorite hymn from my days in Sunday services as a child
My new favorite door.
For so many days,
shadows and ways
blocking the sun
as she rose
to look between the lines
push back the creeping vines
pursue her smiling face
with dignity and grace
until at last I find
she was with me all the time.
Hello Sunrise. Let’s face this day
with hands clasped and hearts entwined.
Step by careful step.
This post is for Norm Frampton’s #Thursdaydoors prompt. While he is on hiatus, the prompt is being hosted by the very talented willing bloggers who are stepping up to help. This week the prompt is hosted by Joey. Check out her page for more great posts. Just find the little blue frog.
A practical door, practically a door! Another little wonder in the wonderland of the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
I can’t believe I missed this the first time we went to the gardens. I wonder if they are retired soldiers….
Thursday Doors is a prompt brought to us by Norm Frampton.
Visiting his blog and clicking on the blue frog will take you to other great doors posts!
