Nothing Special.



We're well into our 'tedious' period here; mornings are quite cold, days are cool, and either frost or mist can often linger all day. Very little happens.

As regular visitors to this page will know, I simply chronicle our everyday lives; whether they be good, bad, or occasionally 'tedious' (as yesterday).

We choose to live a quiet life, otherwise we would be bored stupid. I'm pleased to say that this is only very rarely interrupted.

I suppose I'm rather predictable in Winter. I often wander aimlessly trying to keep myself busy, I shout at the Television, and I dream of leaving my little patch better than when I found it. Nothing exceptional in all that; there's not much else to do!

There are plenty of Winter days when hardly anything happens. OK, I chop mountains of wood, I light fires, I cook a couple of 'gourmet' meals, but that is every day ordinary stuff; it's far more interesting to write about days which involve something unusual or exceptional.

It has to be said that on days when absolutely NOTHING happens, it's almost a godsend to have unruly neighbours; but having been reprimanded, even they don't misbehave that often any more.

So, please allow me once in a while to write about the absence of an eventful life; as it was yesterday.

I know I must try harder, and will attempt to do so tomorrow.

  1. Even your "uneventful" days seemed packed with goodness to me. ❤

    1. Boringly busy. The cold makes me lethargic.

  2. It is quite nice to have an uneventful day. I would love to have more of them.
    The photo was quiet and lovely.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Being a Saturday, there were still a few distant shots to be heard, but otherwise very quiet.

  3. I am thankful for uneventful days. Those are the days I get most done just pottering about. A little sunshine does help a lot I must admit. Mist and frost might just confine me to a chair with a good book or some knitting.
    The days are getting longer...slowly. have a good Sunday

    1. I must admit to having planned a few things to do today, but managed to put them off yesterday.

  4. There are always blogs to keep one amused. Never a dull moment over at my comments. Did you see that Elaine told me she is giving up her blog?

    1. Yes. Her photographs were always superb. Maybe that's what she'll concentrate on from now-on. Pity!

  5. Sometimes uneventful is good. That, in itself, can make a day special.
    Beautiful photograph. X

    1. At my people's lovely home in Sussex there was a knocker on the master bedroom door. The previous owner hibernated, and the knocker was for his maid to bring him everything he needed! Very wise man!

  11. You need these uneventful days to make the exciting days a bit different. I'm quite happy with my uneventful days, like Local Alien I am quite happy pottering about and feel quite annoyed sometimes if my pottering is interrupted by 'excitement'!

    1. They don't come round too often, so maybe I should just enjoy.

  12. Sounds similar to most over 60's lives ..... I guess life can't be exciting everyday !!!! We are having that awful misty rain type weather at the moment which doesn't inspire !! Still, in just a few weeks, Spring will have sprung, new green shoots will be appearing and you can start digging Cro !!!! XXXX

    1. From time to time, but it's no longer a priority.

  14. The tranquility you describe seems very close to paradise. Even though I live in a city that can be very hectic, over the years I've found way to resist many of those exciting temptations. It's good to know they are available, but not mandatory.

    Best wishes.

    1. When I lived in central London, I always found somewhere to be quiet too. It was surprisingly simple.

    1. Yes, the tedious tasks are always there, the dog needs exercise, and we have to eat. Otherwise....

  17. Often, I don't take time to appreciate the ordinary, the routine which in itself can be quite beautiful. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. I thrive on routine; I can never understand people who don't!
