This morning, I was feeling restless…and snapped the above photo because I liked the light streaming into the room (my office), a place where I spend a lot of time.
I have some videotapes stacked on the coffee table, with movies I haven’t seen in a while. Most people no longer have movies in this format…but I do still have a VCR/DVD combination, so I can watch. Here is the equipment I have in my office, the only room with a VCR…
I do enjoy the improvements for movie watching: DVR recordings; Netflix; Amazon Prime. But when I see these old videotapes, I am catapulted back in time to how excited I got at being able to record movies and keep them on a shelf. I used to have so many of them.
Now I have mostly DVDs on shelves in my hallway.
When my grandkids come over, we watch movies on the DVD player in my living room…the entertainment unit is a “dinosaur” from the 1980s…heavy and not updated for current usage, but I am making it work.
Now let’s look at the February birthday girls…neither one has come by to watch movies lately, since they’re grown. They are both turning 21 this month:
Aubrey enjoying a day outside:
And Fiona, showing off some stretches…and her quirky hair:
Many years ago, they were enjoying a February day at the cabin in the snow (image on the left)
Another tidbit from my week: my newest mani on Thursday: a sparkling purplish color…
Do you sometimes look around your rooms and feel sentimental about days gone by? Do images of children and grandchildren heighten those feelings?
