A step in the right direction.


So, I've been looking at clothes lines recently. I would like to hang some of my laundry...sheets, towels, linens, blouses, etc. I will still use my dryer...but just not as much. It will save on energy...plus the clothes I dry on the line will smell sooo nice.

Well, just now, as we're at the shop trying to conduct business, I spring it on Chris, "Hey Honey...I'd like to install a clothes line in the backyard!" (And you know...and I know...and he knows...that I use the term "I" very loosely. As a matter of fact..."I" in this case means "I'd like for YOU to install a clothes line FOR me. Please. Please? Honey?")

Regardless of the context...or proper grammar...before I'm even finished stating my case he says, "Hang on. Hold that thought."

He goes out to the shop and returns with a retractable clothes line and says, "Your wish is my command."

I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I swear...since I turned 40 the strangest things make me happy. Apparently he had it here at the shop for some time. He was going to use it in the spray booth for something but it didn't quite work out. Lucky for me! I can't wait to hang some clothes...and it's supposed to be nice and hot this weekend, too. Perfect! Thank you, Honey!

Don't you just love it when things like this happen? Enjoy. I love the feel & smell of sheets fresh off the line.

Chris is such a sweetie. You two go so well together.

Now I'll bet you're EXCITED to do the laundry! (I wonder how many loads the excitement will last through. :) )

I sure wish there were a clothesline here. There are several behind one building of apartments. I don't think they get used. I want to go ask the tenants if they'd mind if I use them. But, I'm too CHICKEN.

When we moved into this home there were three of these type of clothelines in the basement. I use them in the winter for items I want to line dry. I'm thinking of putting one on the deck.

nice. i have to jerry-rig (is that how you spell that?) a line each time.

oh, the kids hate it because I use their play area for it.
