Laundry can be fun

30 Jul

OK, I want to see some hands, and don’t be shy. How many of you out there just LOVE to hang out laundry?

I mean, I can’t be the only one who sees hanging laundry not as a chore, but as a simple pleasure. It’s a great time to just be alone, to check out from life for a few minutes, and just think. Or don’t think. Just listen to the birds chatting with each other. When you bring the clothes in, they smell great, and that fresh aroma seems to last forever. And it makes me feel good to know that I’m saving a lot of energy and money.

My mother used to hang laundry out all the time. One of the fondest memories of my childhood is the “scritching” sound of her kicking her laundry basket across the driveway as she worked her way down the line. I think about her every time I’m out there.

So I know this dry summer has been tough on farmers and lawns, but it’s been great for line drying.
