You Write it Wednesday

I’m not sure if this is a challenge or a weekly post but the question posed is:

What do you love most about your life.

So many things come to mind, especially recent events with so much to be thankful for and so many to be grateful to.
Our life is simplistic but not ideal to most, and some even think we’re mad.
But it suits us as we are part of a community and have made friends here.
We don’t need the fancy gadgets of modern living, aren’t engulfed by unacceptable noise, the rat race and fast track of busy roads and crowded streets, though they are only a short distance away.
We love the peace, tranquility and solitude, but are far from alone.

Yet when life is at its most annoying and frustrating, what better way to push it all to one side than this view from our window:
reflectionHubby took this picture on Monday when the water was like a millpond and the reflection flawless, like Time standing still.
What’s not to like?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    It does look very tranquil 🙂

    • I seem to have been ‘unfollowed’ and have just spent ages catching up! So sorry I hadn’t noticed before, but I’d missed everything dated 2017! Am I still listed as one of your followers? interesting post about your 1000. I seem to get new ones that turn out to be advertising sites or no longer exist (how does that work when they’re liking all over the place????)
      I’m still here!

        As far as I know, once you follow someone, you always register as following, even if you delete your blog! WP and their weird stats! I’ve also found myself not following someone even tho I have Not un-followed them!
        Thanks for noticing and following again, and all the likes. 🙂
        I just assumed you were busy and/or tired when I didn’t hear from you, but I am still following you. 🙂
        Since I no longer blog every day, I do miss out on others’ posts. I just read what’s in my WP Reader the day I’m blogging. 🙂

      • If I’m late in logging in,sometimes there is so much in my reader, I can’t get through it all. Think I;ve caught up with everything now.

        Yes, it is time consuming to keep on top of things. 🙂

  2. Love this post! Thank you for answering. I love the unpredictability. One minute the world seems to be apart and the next I’m on cloud 9. I love that every second is not the same.

    the boats are so festive and I bet they each have a story

    • this is our normal view. The boats that take part in the Stratford Upon Avon festival or the festivals here decorate with bunting and flowers. Some are really fabulous, others really nice and traditional especially with the narrowboat art bins and pictures. Then you get us, but we’re working on it! We did put lights up at Christmas!!
