Remembering summer

After a rainy and dreary day, this old photo caught my eye...we have not even had a hard winter and I am ready for summer.

Does anyone ever just relax on Sundays?  I always feel like I need to accomplish a little something each day.  I tried to just sit and work my puzzle and do nothing but kept feeling as if I should be up and doing something.  So, ended up down in the basement and did a couple small loads of laundry. 

While clothes were washing, I decided to try to find something to toss in the garbage or a donate bag.  I found old VCR tapes where I had recorded quilt shows.  I thought I had gotten rid of all of them, but got in a drawer and found some that I had had there handy to watch while I was down there.  So into the garbage they went. 

Even though I had disposed of a lot more than those, it still felt strange to throw them away.  Sort of like getting rid of an old acquaintance.  They had all been watched numerous times.  I watched them when I recorded them, then later there were favorites that I watched several times more.  Anyway, they are gone.

And I found 3 or 4 more boxes to collapse and throw in the garbage.  Does anyone else save boxes because they think they might need them to mail something in?  I don't save all boxes or anything...but I always save one here and there.  

A little here.  A little there.  It is all better than nothing.  One of these days, maybe I will feel like I am done I hear laugher out there?  You know, it could happen.
