We have been experiencing some delightful weather here in Minnesota lately.
The days are warm and sun filled. The nights, clear skies and crisp, cool air.
It reminds me of the beginning of autumn when the days are still quite warm yet the nights are cool.
I adore this type of weather. I hope it lasts for weeks, and weeks.
I've been inspired to hang my laundry outside to take advantage of the warm breeze. Unfortunately, I have no clothes line since hubby is not a fan.
No worries, this girl knows how to rough-it.
Simply stringing some clothesline between the tree and the porch posts makes the perfect spot to hang freshly washed clothes. I wrapped it around the tree, then to one post, across to the other post and then back to the tree.
Now I have a three sided clothes line which holds almost two loads of laundry.
Sure it won't win any awards for best laundry line but I can't put in words the delight it has given me.
I love everything about the process of line drying clothes. It may seem crazy, but I love carrying the basket of wet clothes outside, I love placing each item on the line with clothes pins, I love watching the clothes flutter in the breeze, I love folding each item and hearing the cluck of the clothes pins falling into its metal bucket.
Somehow, it's almost magical.
OK, maybe not magical but definitely delightful!
Not sure what hubby's going to say, but I'm hopping he won't notice right away. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the scent of line dried laundry and delighting in my new found love of laundry day!
Have a lovely day,
