There are things that inspire me, that bring joy to my soul, or that remind me of someone special. I've decided to share some of my favorite things when they pop into my head.
Tonight I find myself craving the warmth of the sun. It has been particularly cold and dreary here in Michigan lately. I'm constantly cold and find myself somewhat depressed (seasonal affective disorder?). So, tonight as I was looking through photos from last summer, I remembered how nice it is to hang clean clothes on my clothes line. Who would have thought that some rope between two poles would bring me joy. But it does!
Clean clothes hanging on the line remind me of how grateful I am to have my own washing machine now and that I don't have to go to the laundromat. It reminds me of the fresh air and warm sun -- and the smell of the green grass and honeysuckle. This photo reminds me of how helpful my husband was with stringing up the new rope so I could hang the clothes. The tea towel hanging on the line was given to me by my Grandma after she embroidered squirrels and the days of the week on seven retro towels for me.
I just cannot wait for a nice warm sunny day. I figure two months from now and we could be getting some occasionally warm days (40-50 degrees would be amazing right now!!!). Until then, I will just be dreaming about it.
