Smiling Wind

Have you ever just stopped to watch the wind? Not just listen but watch. Earlier today I was sitting in the yard with Ariana and noticed she was intently watching a leaf skipping across the yard. Funny how she was so intrigued at only three months old. You really should try it sometime...sit outside and use all you senses...feel it, smell it, hear it, taste it, let it move you. Come to think of it, I think that's some therapy thing. It's true that just being outdoors changes you. Lifts your spirits, calms you and acts as a perfect harmony. Try it at night and it's even more exciting, then your senses really heighten.

The clothes on the line swinging in the breeze just takes you back to when life was simpler. Not to mention the energy saved! I'm still using my make shift clothesline but it serves it's purpose. Only problem is I can only get one load on at a time. Really need to get the proper lines up. (Hint Hint Hubby!) LOL! Guess I'll be going to borrow a post hole digger tomorrow. Yea ME!

Hanging the clothes out is like therapy to me, don't know why. I just feel good doing everything the "Simple" way. Not the simple way your thinking...throw 'em in the dryer. Yes physically that's simple but it's not simple in terms of environmental impact. Ya know...back to nature! There is no better way than utilizing the heat and bleaching power of the sun and the slightest stir of wind to dry your clothes. Don't want stiff laundry coming off the line? Pour some Vinegar in the rinse cycle and they wont get "crunchy". A nice constant breeze helps too. Ta ta for now!
