Connections

There is something about water that connects…..

Wellness

Wellness is not how thin you are or how many hours you spent on the gym or how many carrots you ate for lunch last week. wellness is feeling good inside yourself and knowing who you are. If you don’t know who you are you will only be a lost soul at sea. If your soul is shining so are you on the outside and this is notice by many people around you and this is like rings on the water without you even knowing it. By our mind and consciousness we effect others around us by having a soul filled with wellness. And with wellness comes happiness. You catch my drift here? 🙂

I notice myself being grumpy sometimes for no reason at all, like the atmosphere we live in effect us most negatively once in a while. This effects of course my surrounding and all of a sudden the moment that just been so good for all just died. Most unnecessary and this is why I write this post, To make you remember who you are and how you feel and how that effects everything you do and and around you. To reach a goal it is important to not loose the ground on reality as the world we live in today is rough and not at all what you think it is. Open your eyes and hearts and you notice that the world will opens up to you.

Lots of love to you all.

Baking while travel

I love my baking and while travel on the canals it is perfect to make a cake that’s ready when you come into port. yesterday I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for the coffee together with our friends. It was a success 🙂 I also tried another frosting with some green color but I think that one got yo sweet so i used the lovely cream cheese frosting instead.

Tulips

Yesterday we made a trip to our friends camping and on the way we stopped to look at the tulip fields as we realized we never seen them since we came here, now we have and the colors was just amazing. I love flowers but  as live aboard is not always the optional to have a vase of lovely tulips on the table.

 

 

New meetings

In the boat world you meet a lot of different people and I love that. people you never would talk to otherwise you hang around with and have the same interest, boats.

You have the stressed vacation sailor, the old couple that been out for decades, the young boys and girls with loud music and the rentals….. Yesterday was no exception when we met a German couple that were adorable. My German is crap and my understanding is so and so and their English was the same as my German, so a mix of German, English , Dutch and the body language we had a nice chat and a coffee. 🙂

After that we left the harbor and tied up outside one old classic boat called a Skutsje. Two gentlemen form the little club was very friendly and invited us in and we sat down for a while and got some history about the boat and how the life was on board 100 years ago when a family live there with as much as 10 children! these were old school bulk carrier for inland water use and especially canals ways and shallow waters. It was like a tiny cabin and one of the cutest boats I ever seen inside. There are 14 clubs that owns one each of these and every year they have a big sailing competition where they sail from town to town.

Thaifood tonight

Rose and Leif which we sail with at the moment came over and Rose was a Thai food chef and her food is just amazing. She started to cook the most wonderful chicken soup and her food shows up now and then in Happy Six. Almost like we have our own cook as I have not cooked dinner in days now. 🙂 Som tam and some other names I don’t remember, lovely and very spicy.

Love hurts

I love my husband so much that it hurts inside, we been through a hell of a ride. Together we are queen and king strong together we can achieve anything. I walk miles and cross the oceans for you and my love for you will always be true. See you scared and weak makes me so very sad and it also makes me really mad. Mad so I can scream and cry, please let me know why? Life is not always fair to another that’s why its important to cherish your lover,

I do my best but it does not seem enough, what can I do and how did life get so rough?

To hear your voice makes me warm inside but when you don’t speak to me its hard and I cant read your mind.  I hope you wanna grow old with me, that was my plan that’s how I want it to be. Your a man different from anyone I met, you are a free spirit with a different mind set. ♥♥♥

And off we go.

The sailing season 2016 has officially started today. Cold fresh air, lovely sun and hardly no wind made the first day out for the year extremely nice. We went from Kampen and ended up in Enkhuizen, a old fishing village that we usually spend our last summer in.

There were not a single other boat out today except the working boats. To bad they not knowing what they miss as it was so nice. Now we just finished dinner and a stroll in town with the dogs and I am finished. Now a big bowl of popcorn and a blanket then slowly grow into the sofa. That’s a great way to spend the evening onboard. Tomorrow we go further to Amsterdam and hopefully we end up in a marina we have not been before…. Just have to convince my husband as our thought splits there. 🙂

I find myself at peace on the water, more relaxed than I can ever be, people that knows me know that I have to much energy and hardly never sit down. On the boat out there I do….
