Every other Thursday we get our produce co-op delivery. It's kind of like a mini Christmas, and the kids get excited, too. This time we ordered a bonus 8# of strawberries (I'm going to try my hand at freezer jam tomorrow!) and a case of oranges.
I've been craving orange juice all week, so I juiced several oranges and had a nice tall glass. It was certainly labor intensive, but very delicious!
Finally it was warm enough on a day I was doing laundry to hang some out to dry. My clothesline is one of my favorite things. I absolutely love the smell of line-dried things, especially sheets, and it always takes me back to my childhood as I have many many memories of mom hanging the clothes out, or me helping when I was old enough. The sight of clothes blowing in the wind is as calming to me as watching ocean waves break on the shore. (Which is good, seeing as how I make it so infrequently to the ocean!)
This is something else I like: my clothespin holder made out of a bleach bottle. Mom had (and still has, actually) one of these and I loved clipping pins along the edge of the opening and along the hole at the top. Funny I don't do this with my own...I guess I've finally realized it makes it more time-consuming to get the pins.
Aww, he thinks he's people. I love finding my pets enjoying the sun in unusual places. It's those times when I wish I could trade lives with my pets for a day--especially one of my cats. To lounge around soaking up the sun for a day sounds like sheer heaven. This is Noni, my large (ahem--fat!) kitty boy.
