Posts Tagged ‘clothesline’

I took advantage of my time today, not just getting stuff done but getting certain stuff done.

When I got off work today at 10:00 a.m. I dove into the laundry.  The bed linens, to be specific.  Why?  Because the sun was shining, there was a slight breeze blowing, and that is the prime time to hang laundry out on the line.

I don’t know a lot of people who hang clothes on the line anymore.  Sure, it might be quicker to dry them in the dryer, but guess what?  They’ll never smell as good as they do when they’re hung on the line.  Also there are certain neighborhoods that don’t even allow clotheslines because it might make for a dastardly appearance.  To those neighborhoods I say, fie on you!  I’d never live in a neighborhood that judged me for saving money, and more importantly the environment, by hanging laundry on the line.

There wasn’t a lot of time to work with.  By 5:00 the rain clouds moved in and we’re due for some rain this weekend.  So my quick work of washing the bed linens paid off because I could hang them and dry them on the line before the rain came.

Sunshine and a spring breeze will make me sleep well tonight.

The neighbor was mowing the lawn while my linens dried on the line. Perfect! Another wonderful aroma penetrating into the fibers.

I can hardly wait to crawl into bed tonight with my fresh bed linens.  The mattress pad is nice and fluffy and the sheet and pillow cases smell like spring, and make the whole bedroom smell fresh and clean.

Fabric softener has nothing on springtime sunshine!
