Hello everyone~~~Did you have a good weekend? I worked yesterday, but had today off. We spent the entire afternoon out on the boat. It was a bit windy out there, but wonderful all the same.
Did you ever see that Kevin Costner movie about the message in the bottle? It's so good, yet soooo sad.
I used to think I would find a message inside a bottle when I stayed at my grandparents house at the lake. I would check the shore every now and then...looking for my treasure. I also used to pretend to be a mermaid. I'd keep my feet together as I swam under water, bobbing up and down like a dolphin. Wearing a swim mask was the BEST! I could see the sun shining beams of light down into the water, and bouncing off the sand below. I wanted to live down there...under the water. In the early evening, when the sun was still above the horizon, I would lay on my stomach at the end of the dock...looking straight down into the water.... Watching the fish and turtles swim right below. It was a magical time.
I still sit and watch the sun bounce off the trees as it reflects off the water in the evening hours.
Filling my own window sills with these same treasures gives me the feeling of living by the sea. I LOVE the blue and green bottles and jars the best! As the sun comes through the windows, and the bottles, the room fills with the colors of the sea.
I think back to those days at my grandparent's house on the water...all those childhood dreams and wishes.
I feel so blessed to live here at the lakehouse. It's not the sea...but it's the next best thing.
Have a wonderful Monday!
