Down Time/ThursdayDoors

The Badge

Down Time: a time of reduced activity or inactivity. But no. It really hasn’t been except for here on the blog. An exceptionally busy time keeping the sewing machine humming, the crochet needles clacking, and so maybe letting the blog rest for a week is good for my soul. Anyway, I’m catching you up this week on some happenings during which I also found a few doors. Hope you’ll enjoy.

Persimmon Report

To start, finally made my yearly pick up of persimmons to see what the winter ahead holds……or what the superstition tells us. As you can see, it’s not the best news, if you believe in the old-timer’s ways.

Next up, I have some health news for dear hubby. Had a surgery he’d been waiting on for 6 months. Thanks to our health system dropping the ball, his polyps nearly blocked his stomach from allowing food to exit. Not happy about how much this time it took to fix things, but thankful that all ended well and he’s back on the mend. I have some doors from around that day. Click on the gallery for full views as WordPress hasn’t figured out a true gallery yet.

And last but not least, a little banjo humor to go along with my latest endeavor. I took on my first banjo student this summer and happy to report they are progressing along very well. What’s a gal to do with 47 years of banjo know-how? Pass it on! And yes, ‘classical’ banjo is a thing. Orchestras don’t know what they’re missing 😉

Thanks for dropping in this week for my version of Thursday Doors. Please stop in to see our leader Dan at No Facilities for doors around the world. Well worth the visit!



  1. I’m glad you were able to get Hubs in and see that elevator door. Six months is a long time to wait for something that needs to be done. I liked the banjo humor,. I don’t play, but I had a friend who was in an orchestra. You’re right about progress, sometimes it’s hard to watch it unfold.

    I hope you have a nice weekend.
