I think a lot of contemplation happens in bathtubs. It does for me. Nothing like a hot bath to ease the tension and think about what's going to happen next.
For me, there's nothing like a nice, hot bath at the end of a long day.

It was bitterly cold today, but lots of sunshine. I decided to head to the conservatory for some winter shots. I didn't find much inspiration. There was a lot of brown and bare. I found this empty nest. I wonder if the bird family will be back this spring?
I know it's winter and that I live in Michigan. It's supposed to be cold and snowy. But I'm ready for a thaw!

Does a certain smell trigger memories for you? It does me. Original scent Palmolive reminds me of my Grandpa. He used to do the dishes all the time. He was particular about having an empty sink. If someone placed a dirty bowl or glass in the sink, he'd happily wash it. He always kept busy tinkering around in the garage or yard. He liked to keep busy and doing the dishes was one of those things.
Both of my Grandparents have passed on now. My Grandpa died in the spring of 1995, just before my daughter was born. I was hoping that he'd make it until her birth in August. But his heart failed him. He did visit her, in my dreams after she was born, however. I truly believe he was with us for the first few months of her life (or it could have been my crazy hormones getting the best of me). I'm sure he still is "here" I just don't notice as much now.
So now, when I tackle the most dreadful chore, I ponder two of the most wonderful Grandparents I could have had.
