Day 160 – Thankful for the Smell of 2×4’s

06 Mar

Today I’m thankful for the smell of 2×4’s.

One of the manliest smells in the world.  A scent that makes me grunt and scratch myself more.  An odor that brings out my inner caveman.  2×4’s.

Driving home from Menards with a Pilot full of 2×4’s I was getting pumped for building shelves.  There’s just something about the smell of pine lumber that gets me ready for building.  

It reminds me of the times when my parents were building our house growing up.  It makes me think of projects I made as a kid.  The scent reminds me of building the garage.  There’s something about that smell that brings back many happy memories and smiles.

So as the scent of the fresh pine shelves drifts up from the basement I can’t help but be thankful for the smell of 2×4’s today!
