I love the smell of sheets that have been hung on the line to dry. It is a simple task that brings pleasure to my family and guests, and hopefully, aids in a great night’s sleep. Oh, the comfy feel of crisp, clean, cotton sheets! #sleeptight
Actually, I love hanging them on the line. There is something about the task that calms me. The simple work is a simple pleasure. One benefit of aging is the understanding that simple pleasures feed a happy life.
As I hung the laundry recently, I pondered why this was so. Why was I enjoying myself so much simply hanging sheets in the breeze? At that moment, I did not need anything more. Just the task, the sun, the air, the smell of Gain® and Downy®, the dog lounging nearby, the cat playing with a fallen clothes pin. It was simply perfect. #PandG #laundryontheline
Simple things slow us down a bit. If we do not rush them and experience them - live in the moment – they can be restorative.
I encourage you seek a simple pleasure this week. Swing on your porch. Lie in a hammock. Pot some plants. Sweep your deck. Hang some sheets. See if you discover in that moment that it is simply well with your soul. #simplepleasure #simpletruth
