It has once again been a pleasure to have housesat in North Yorkshire.
A beautiful scenic part of the United Kingdom. Not forgetting to mention the friendly locals.
When the sun is shining, she is indeed a beauty.
Abe and Lou were no longer two, they were now three. Ageing another year had made them calmer and definitely still lots of fun. The sun umbrella was out most days, with the creation of another outside office for us. With many hours relaxing and absorbing the warmth. It is indeed a home that encourages its visitors to relax and take a deep breath.
That is precisely what we did.
With a few hours out and about, the camera did not make much of an appearance. For now, I just wanted to be in the moment. There did not seem an urgency to fumble away in my bag to retrieve my camera to capture that small square of scenery. I wanted to see the whole picture without acknowledging that overwhelming desire to take a photo. Believe me, it is still a strong urge, and I always think “that” will make an excellent shot. Not that there was any concern for a lack of photographs as I have hundreds stored on my computer of this area. A recent development that overrides the photography mind is the reoccurring thoughts of what I can write in my next blog post than about snapping more of those unique ‘shots’ while out walking.
More importantly, while housesitting is capturing those priceless moments with Abe and Lou.
Over the last few weeks, we have been organising get-togethers with others for the time we are North Yorkshire and other various times throughout the year. More on those in another post. With that comes more organising of travel arrangements. Not of course forgetting applying for housesits for 2019, which is starting to pick up momentum. At this stage, we have three already booked, which is excellent as it gives us dates to plan a few roadtrips around those housesits.
One of the North Yorkshire get-togethers included having the opportunity to catch up with three fabulous bloggers while we were up north. What we lack in selfies we excel in stringing words together to either make people think, laugh or both!. We may have to work on those selfies!
What has also been fun is having the opportunity to be a dirt hugger which literally means getting my hands dirty in the garden. Something I don’t get to do very often. With the sunny and warm days, we saw a spurt of growth in the garden here. We have even had plants delivered by mail that needed to be potted up. With these activities, we have really got into the spirit of Spring
Not sure about everyone else, we are feeling that time seems to be flying by so fast.
Of course, there was always time to capture another of those priceless moments from the loveable Abe and Lou.
