I love doing dishes, okay, maybe love is an understatement. I don’t mind them though, because I have a window over the sink that overlooks my back yard.
This is a big deal for me. Two houses ago, the sink faced a wall, next house the sink faced a window but the view was blocked by the biggest ugliest sunroom you’ve ever seen. Finally, this house has a sink with a window view.
When we first moved in I put a bird feeder and a few flowers. Not much happened, the birds were shy and it was too late in the season for much floral fireworks.
Each year since I’ve added a little bit here and there. This year, I think I finally have the best view ever. It helps we’ve had a cool spring and early summer so all my flowers are still healthy, no heat stroke yet.
The birds come to my feeder and the birdbath and my flowers are all in full bloom, so doing the dishes isn’t a chore. While my hands are busy washing and drying my eyes are busy watching the birds dart around. I marvel at the explosion of color in each of my planters.
What is your favorite view and does it make a chore pleasant?
