Rainy day of thanks
Gratefulness-Challenge Day 15 of 21 by KnowledgeCollective
It’s been a rainy day, which I really don’t mind. Rain is one of my happy places. Thanks for reading along today, and may the coming week bring you the sun or the rain you most desire.
Cedar - The scent of cedar is lovely. As I gathered Mom’s Christmas attire to take over to her today, I enjoyed the nostalgic smell of cedar from her Hope Chest. I now use this chest to keep Mom’s off season clothes. I hope the scent of the cedar is evocative for her as well.
Manny - in my virtual world home I have a full set of really clever artist’s mannequin figures called Mannys. The actions include Yoga, Manny Astaire, Manishnikov, Thomas Mannison with his light bulb, a Birdwatcher, and so many more. I enjoyed them so much that I got a real life Manny. Often expressing my existential angst, he always makes me relate to my inner thoughts or at least laugh.
Wrinkle Press - I am indebted to the human who thought of having this setting on the dryer. While it’s true that the repeating buzz after each preemptive tumble is annoying, that simply means it’s being successful. Getting up and pulling the clothes from the dryer is preferable to hearing that BUZZZZZ yet again.
Ice Cubes - Not just for Gin and Tonics anymore, a handful of ice cubes tossed into the dryer with clothes I’ve forgotten about after ignoring the buzzer too many times. Run the 20 minute fluff setting and the bit of moisture from the melted ice cubes released the most stubborn wrinkles. A good “Life Hack” is one of the best things ever. You’re welcome!
A New Habit - They say it takes 21 days to make something a habit, and I don’t know if that’s true, but I know this challenge is making my days sweeter. Five is a lot, and I think going forward from these first 21 days I’ll list my top three things. It’s the attitude of gratitude that is important to me, and three is a good number to keep that going.
