I am having fun looking through my archive photos. This was taken as we were driving along the road, and the washing on the line caught my attention.
I have these memories from childhood when my mother did hers. To this day there is nothing that equates to the smell of freshly washed bed sheets that have been dried in the sun. For me another wonderful childhood memory helping my mother as best I could, handing her pegs to hang up the washing, carrying the oversized basket to her when the washing was dried, and being given more chores to help out as I got older, hearing her laughter as I got into the occasional childish antic which made her laugh. I loved making my mum laugh and that didn't change as the years went by.
I hope you are all doing okay. Our days seem to be going quickly thank goodness. There is always something to do. Yesterday we were changing two of the lightbulbs that had burned out in the front of our house, and our new neighbors were across the street. They were enjoying the sunshine and were sitting under their cherry blossom tree. It made a pretty sight. We shouted over and asked them how they were doing, had a mini conversation. A pleasant interlude while keeping our social distancing. I look forward to the time when we can get to know them better. I still intend to invite them to a meal when this is all over.
The lightbulb change turned into a bigger problem and now we have called an electrician and will be getting four new light fixtures. The ones we had are as old as our 30 year old house. We got an estimate from one electrician and the two others haven't called back yet (hopefully business is good). Mundane tasks but we never take anything for granted these days, even more so now.
It is very windy today. I am watching the branches from one of our trees. There are pine cones from another that have blown onto the deck. The cherry blossoms from our neighbor's tree were falling like snow earlier. Pretty sights in nature also not to be taken for granted, and the sun is shining, a gift.
There are fences in my photo so I grabbed it for Gosia's Meme.
