THURSDAY POTPOURRI: SENTIMENTAL THOUGHTS ON A FEBRUARY DAY…

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:

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?
