Laundry

Laundry is my favourite chore. Nope, not kidding. I like sorting the dirty clothes into loads. I like adding soap to the washing machine. I like the rhythmic sounds made by the machine as it churns and spins. In the winter, I like pulling the dry clothes out of the dryer all warm and good-smelling. I like making neat uniform stacks of folded clothes, ready to be put away. But most of all, I like summertime use of clotheslines. I like clothespins with their funny little shape and practical purpose. I like hanging out clothes in multi-coloured strands or flags. I like seeing the sun shine on the clothes and watching the wind blow the clothes gently. I like the crisp feel and smell of the clothes after they're dry. They seem to take on the smell of the sun and wind. And too, I like the fact that it saves us money and energy by hanging things out to dry. Clotheslines should be legal everywhere, without question.

Clotheslines are the way to go!

BTW, would doing laundry still be your favourite if the laundry machine didn't do most of the grunt work? :-)

You and Michelle should do some laundry together - she loves laundry also. Can't say it's my favorite especially on the weeks when there is 9-10 loads to do. Happy washing & folding! :-)

Yep, love laundry day, it's right up there with washing dishes! I will think of you next time I launder :-)

Girls I have laundry to do today any takers. I will also have some dishes after I finish making cinnamon buns.
