Linking up again for week 7 of the Inspiration Workshop, hosted by Maggie over at GussySews. Make sure to head over and check out her awesome shop! So many cute things to choose from! This weeks prompt for the Inspiration Workshop was “Sunshine”. You want to know the first thing that pops into my head when I hear that word? It’s “Sunshine, Daises, butter mellow, turn this stupid fat rat yellow”. That was Ron Weasley’s first attempt at a spell in the first Harry Potter movie. I must just have Harry Potter on the brain since the last movie comes out this week…so sad!
Besides that silly little quote, sunshine is just a happy word! You hear the word sunshine and it just makes you smile. It brings back memories of playing outdoors in the summertime with my brother and all our friends. We used to like to wash the car, just to give us an excuse to get out the hose and play in the water. We also spent many summers playing in woods behind the house climbing trees, petting the cows in the adjoining pasture. Just being silly and enjoying the outdoors. So many kids now days stay cooped up inside all the time, playing video games, surfing the internet, watching t.v….sad really! I’m so glad my parents made us play outside. We didn’t have a/c growing up, so it’s not like it was any cooler in the house, so we’d spend out days outside until the sun went down & even then we’d stay outside to chase and catch fireflies. We’d get a nice little collection going in a mason jar and then we’d let them all go at the end of the night. Sometimes it would be nice to go back to those good ‘ol days when we didn’t have a care in the world!
