Aging Expectations

Love is in the Air

Raise your hand if you remember this:

Okay, thanks…just taking a quick audience age poll! πŸ˜‰
Now, on to the top three things I’m loving this week…

1. Fresh

It’s spring time and you know what that means – lots of rain showers. At least that’s what it means where I live. I do not mind though. I love the rain, especially at night and even more than just showers, thunderstorms. Β Which is good because summer is coming and with it comes the amazing light shows and heavy booms.

Lying in bed with my window open and listening to the rain fall is so soothing and relaxing. I love it!

2. Clean

Clean sheets. Is there anything more relaxing than getting into a freshly made bed with luxurious, rich clean sheets. I mean even my cheap sheets feel luxurious and rich when they’re clean.

I’m a little weird about my sheets, I’ll admit it. I like them a certain way at the top – you must have a lot of extra sheet up there. You have to have hospital corners (I know a lot of people probably don’t know what that means – for those of you that don’t, here’s an image and instructions). And, the sheets have got to be smoothed out.

What a pain, right? Talk to my husband…

But, climbing into that freshly made bed is a-mazing and I think, gives you a more restful sleep! Now, you gotta love that!

3. Laundry

I hate the laundry. It’s so daunting But..there is nothing like the feeling of getting all of the wash done. I mean, done. Washed, dried, ironed, folded, and put away.

Doing it is such a pain. I can’t decide which part of it I hate more…every part stinks worse than the next but once it’s done… it’s 10 seconds of pure pleasure from when I flop down on the couch and take a deep breath until the next piece of dirty clothes is thrown into the hamper. But, what a great 10 seconds! Pure bliss…

Is your laundry done?
Are your sheets clean?

  1. Yes, I absolutely know this song, and now I’ve got it stuck in my head- thanks! πŸ˜‰
    Laundry is actually going as I write this. Already finished two loads this morning.
    I’m loving the fact that beautiful weather is projected for the Girl Scouts camping trip that I’m chaperoning this weekend- hopefully that black bear won’t come for a visit!

  3. I am totally with you on the rain and thunderstorms. Just last night as I was in bed listening to the patter of rain on the roof and windows I mentioned how much I enjoy listening to it rain at night. It’s so calming and relaxing!
