Thursday Doors

I’m going to need a houseboat, if it doesn’t stop raining pretty soon. We haven’t seen the sun in about a week. We’ve gone well past mud season into some type of New England swamp season. The only residents here who are enjoying it are the ducks. ๐Ÿ™‚

But, if I need to start looking for a new residence that will float, this would be a good one. Itย not only has a handsome door but a patio area and room for plants. ๐ŸŒท

  1. Would love to try living on a houseboat. I’ve heard you can find some for rent in some places. Might be fun!

    Well, of course you couldn’t have a houseboat if it didn’t have a place for plants. I know that sky very well. I thought it was supposed to be clear and warmer today, Judy. I walked out into fog and drizzle ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Oh no … You can’t get out in the garden … In spring! We get cabin fever after two days if we can’t get out. I wouldn’t want a house boat either .. No garden!

    How peaceful to wake up every day surrounded by only water and ducks! That’s cool!
    Sorry about the deluge – you deserve perfect gardening weather. We were told today would be pouring buckets – instead it’s sunny again. I’m okay with that. Wish you could enjoy the same – you’d make better use of it outside than I would!

    Not so much rain in central Maine.Just the right amount, actually. Funny how the weather can be different not that far away. Hope you get some sun soon.

  8. We’re back to rain and clouds here, too, Judy, so I’m sympathetic and empathetic as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ Fortunately, we’re not near to floating yet, although if it came to that, this place would be a great choice and would also cause me to have to pare back on belongings. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. We almost took the ‘plunge’ to live on a houseboat, Judy, but at the last minute bought an old cottage to renovate. We still have our little riverboat and it’s lovely to spend time on it even when it’s moored. Being on the water is so relaxing – for me anyway. Hope the weather dries up soon for you. We’ve had an unusually dry Spring here in Ireland, maybe all our rain is falling on your part of the world instead. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Living at 3000 feet the rain does not bother me, knowing it will all flow down:) But I do love the ocean, and if I had the chance, I would take it!

    Forget the houseboat….you may need an ark!!! Basically same weather pattern here day after day after day after….well, you know.

    But that is a pretty little home. No mowing or trimming. No lack of parking space. Not so sure if there would be a mold/mildew issue though. But that picture is so inviting.

    Hope the sun shines on you soon. Happy gardening! ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒผ

    Good news is we are no longer in a Moderate Drought in NH. We are now Abnormally Dry. Maybe the water ban will be lifted SOON although my garden doesn’t need any more water for awhile.

  15. At least your garden will be enjoying the rain. Hopefully the sun will come out again soon.

    It works for me. Not sure I’d want to live on a houseboat but maybe for a few nights on vacation would be nice.
    The weather has been crummy here too. There has been some flooding and a few road beds that were washed out not far from us. The sun was out today though and should be for the next few as well.

    There are times I think we might need one, too. Thankfully, it is not now.

  18. It’s been gray and overcast here too. This would be a good plan. That boat looks pretty sweet too.

  19. Nice houseboat. Hopefully it stays put and doesn’t float away with all of the rain.

    We’ve been nervous about the rain, and the lake level, too, but we’ve actually had a pretty good week and not so much of the wet stuff. But wouldn’t a houseboat be fun?!

    I’ve always thought it would be fun to spend a week on a house boat but wouldn’t want to have to do it out of necessity. Which you could send us some of your rain, we could still use more.

    I can only send sympathy — and empathy. Weeks like that are so depressing! We are sure soggy in Indiana right now, and I can only hope that this weather isn’t headed toward you. If it is, belay the houseboat and order those ark plans.

    That’s a lovely door. Have you ever tried straw bale gardening? It’s doable anywhere – even on a houseboat (I think) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think you have some reasons to live in a houseboat, Judy. We have rain and sometimes snow, wind so I would buy this house as well ๐Ÿ™‚ Lovely white door and patio, I agree.

  26. We had a drought and now a lot of rain; I prefer having the rain but I don’t live in a flood plain so I can’t speak for everyone. If you live in a houseboat and have a drought (like we had for several years in California) your houseboat would be sitting several feet above ground level.

    Mother Nature doesn’t always get her schedules aligned with ours does she? Sincerely hope the skies clear too so you can enjoy your spring planting. I would worry being on a houseboat in rainy weather. (We had 8 inches of rain last Monday and Tuesday and set a record for the most recorded ever in April. Then had 92F the other day. Temps should moderate this week but rain clouds are forming again.)

  28. Lots of rain here lately too. It’s getting old, lol ! The other day I was VERY unhappy with 87 degree weather in April then strong storms and a deluge came and took that away but it does seem to rain way too much lately whether it is hot or chilly ๐Ÿ™‚

    Humor plus a great houseboat set of doors made this a fun Thursday’s Doors post, Judy.
    The idea of living on a house boat amuses me. I am not sure I would be okay on windy, rocky days or nights. I get seasick or a bit of my sickness on planes, rides and boats. . .
    I liked the movie with a nun played by Leslie Caron and Cary Grant, who lives on a houseboat. It might be called, “Father Goose.” ๐Ÿ™‚
