A few Christmases ago, my friend Robin gave me a set of wind chimes. Not only do they have cute wooden elephants dangling on them, the chimes have a very soothing sound. They are just the right pitch. I hung them in the living room of our old place and they would chime every time a breeze from the fan would hit them (those were the days of no AC).
I remember lying on the couch, trying not to move because it was so hot and hearing those chimes. I remember thinking how nice it will be when I have my own backyard sanctuary to hang those chimes. I can see the place so clearly in my head. Lush green ferns, some sort of gazebo and most importantly, some sort of swing. Better yet, I can even hear what the sanctuary will sound like, with a bubbling fountain of some sorts and birds. Oh and don't forget the crickets.
Those chimes are packed away neatly in storage for now. I don't know why I just thought of them or the image of them just so clearly popped into my head. Maybe it's because the weather has been so nice and I've been dressing like an island girl with tank tops and flip-flops all week. We are on the very cusp of summer.
Happy Friday everyone. Enjoy the holiday!
