Road Trip, Day Sixteen: Things I Love.

Not many photos today.

But I will share with you my recent, Things I Love, list.
It was definitely inspired by my thoughts of home,
what that means, when I will have it again, and how it feels.

bent wood chairs, oil lamps, wood stoves, wooden family tables, old patchwork quilts,
woven rugs, jars of flowers, nesting mixing bowls, old ticking pillowcases, down comforters,
wool shirts, mismatched china with floral patterns, woven baskets, heavy white mugs of tea,
hand thrown pottery, norwegian ski socks, granny square afghans, wool blankets,
baskets of firewoods, music with a fiddle, hay lofts, goats, watercolor sets that look messy,
old leather lace up boots, wool long johns, enamelware, a sharp knife, cloth napkins,
clothespin bags that hang on the clothesline, claw foot tubs, zinnias, cosmos, beeswax candles,
the smell of woodsmoke, smoked salt, wrap around porches, porch swings, the ocean,
singing around a campfire, mushrooms sautéed in ghee, collections of rocks, wooden benches,
lines of boots all in a row, curtains waving in a breeze, washing camp dishes, 
cabins in the woods, the smell of ears, tea with coconut milk, old paintbrushes, bird watching,
searching the water for whales, wild edible plants, huckleberries, the smell of dirty hats,
aprons, the scent of cedar, a fireplace, barn wood, pantries with glass jars full of stores,
rain on a metal roof, floor pillows, hiking, waterfalls, icicles, gardens fenced for deer,
the smell of rotting apples, bowls of abundant fruit, dried plums, pinecones, wildflowers,
fabric with eyelets, constellations, hand knit scarves, fingerless gloves, blooming clover,
neatly stacked wood piles, moss and lichen, rooflines with scallops, clogs, 
outhouses with moons cut in the door or fantastic views, snow on evergreen boughs,
sunlight filtering through leaves, printing ferns, cursive typewriters, wooden greenhouses,
red cabooses, cedar shingles, weathered wood, log cabins, rocking chairs, leather cording,
golden pastures with daisies, watercolors and gouache, acorns, fiddleheads, buckeyes,
river and lake swimming, old barns, wearing someone else's shirt, hand carved wooden spoons, 
blue mason jars, pepper grinders, cast iron, tree houses, down jackets, hammocks with quilts.
