New "I Love..." thread, can't be emotional love, like a spouse or child.

Ok. So what do you love besides the obvious relationships with family and freinds. And don't take the easy way out and say something like "D.C." That's too easy.

My first attempt at this: I love U. P. Michigan Forests. They tantalize the senses with fragrant aromas, breathtaking beauty, and serentiy where you can get away from all people, if only breifly, or better yet, share time with someone special, away from all other people.

I love working in my garden. It calms me and makes me happy. I love the smell of the dirt and the plants. I love the sun on my shoulders. I love the lowers and the veggies and the fruit. I even love the earths worms and the frogs. (Hurry up spring)

There are so many for me.

I love the smell of laundry as it dries on the line. I have to qualify that statement by saying we have a clothesline in our family room. Weird, I know, but it's part of living in this big old house. On laundry day the family room smells so fresh. As a twin to this fragrance, there's something magic about how laundry smells when it's been dried on the line outside.

Another of my loves is that of slipping into a freshly made bed onto cool percale sheets in the summertime. In the wintertime, that is equaled by snuggling between soft flannel sheets.

Great idea for a thread Goodweed!!

I love how the outside smells after a good rain storm.The air is so fresh from the rain washing away the dust and washing all the trees and plants.

Ditto all the loves mentioned above. In addition:

I love the smell of onions and celery frying up together.

I love the feel of HH's unshaven chin on my itchy shoulder.

I love the way sand feels between my toes.

I love having someone else wash my hair.

I love reading a perfectly turned phrase.

I love hearing wind blow through tall grass.

I won't mention anything about food because that list would just go on and on.

I love music and how it can transport me someplace else.
I love the sound of waves on the ocean.
I love warm sun hitting my skin.
I love sitting outside at 3am in the summer when everyone else is asleep and it is so peaceful that you feel like you are the only person alive.
I love being on a sailboat and getting that perfect breath of wind that just makes your boat take off.
I love sitting by my pool on a lazy Sunday morning with a hot cup of coffee in my hand.

I love being up in the mountains during a thunder storm.

I love hearing the laughter of small children.

I love to feel rain on my face.

I love looking at old family pictures.

I had better quit, I am starting to get pretty emotional.

I love how reading a good book can make me feel as if I'm there.

I love watching the sun rise with my first cup of coffee.

I love a hot shower in the mornings to get me started & a hot bath at night to relax me.

I love sitting in the boat fishing & feeling that first tug of the day on the line.

I love tending to my roses & seeing them thrive from my care.

I love walking through the woods at my parents house just to see, hear, feel, & smell nature.

I love roasting marshmallows in a fire & feeling the warmth on my face on a crisp fall night.

I love giving gifts.
I love seeing my son smile and hearing my husband laugh.
I love that first sip of a cold drink when I'm really hot. The feeliing of coolness going down is great.
I love my feeling of my hair when it has been warmed by the sun.
I love being heard and really understood.
I love the power of huge waterfalls.
I love feeling protected and loved and needed and wanted by the person who I want to protect and love and need and want the most in this world. ( Is that too close to saying that I love my husband?)

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost
