Tale Weaver #136 – 7/9/17 – What I want…

Oh, this opens up so many wishful possibilities!

When we were in the house, we’d ask ourselves three questions when we thought about a luxury or extravagant purchase.
They were:
Do I want this?
Do I need this?
Will my life end if I don’t have it?
On the boat, our questions were modified somewhat due to lack of space to
Can I eat it?
Can I wear it?
Where will I put it?
Boat living taught us a lot about wants and needs.

Materialistically, I can’t think of anything I really want.
Now that a new home is on the horizon, the basics are included, and we only need to purchase the necessities, like something to sleep on, something to sit on, and pushing the boat out a bit perhaps, a table to eat from.

So what do I want?
I like to believe my heart is in the right place,  but as we all have our own way of doing things, any idea of making things better could in fact turn turtle and make things worse.
I would love to be able to find a way to smooth away the stresses and strain of living and make life enjoyable for all.
I suppose it comes down to wanting to change things I have no control over.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Great thoughts Di, I agree so often its about accepting what we have and being happy with that…as you say somewhere to sleep and eat and all the rest fits in behind.
