Tenancies






















It has been one of those weeks for the last month, where as a member of a tenant association, the time I usually spend on more pertinent matters such as this blog, book reviews and writing, has been on issues related to general maintenance combined with preparation for a tribunal hearing.

If life were much simpler, as in the photo above, of an abandoned homestead in south-west Saskatchewan. Of course, from its state new housing is in order and imminent. Hopefully this will not be the case with the apartment complex I live in.

Ah, the wide open wild. I'd live there in a heartbeat.

Leah, I prefer a place with a few more trees for shade in the blistering summer sun and a wind break in the winter to ease those whipping blasts of driven snow.

The loneliness of the open spaces - very nice in the photo, but maybe not always when you live there?

Looks like that would be a great place to write!

Ah yes, sometimes one longs for the simpler life without the complications of modern dwellings! I like the contours of the land in the photo - undulating and restful.

Barbara Martin said...

RuneE, perhaps living in solitude is not so much the issue but whether one has the conveniences of life at hand. I suspect the area went through a dry period and the people moved to another location.

Charles, perfect for an afternoon or a few days.

Phoenix, this area of Saskatchewan is full of these hills. Its a wonderful place to be.

Lovely landscape, I wonder how far away the next neighbors lived.

I hope you are soon done with the tenant association work and can get back to do all those things you missed out on!

Nice pic. Hope all is working out well on the tenant front.
