Oh the Joys of Laundry! (for real)

Today I did the laundry!  Now that’s not only earthshaking just because I did it (Kris most often does), but because we have no clothes dryer available.  Our dear neighbors (once again) offered us the use of theirs.   So when I asked what they do, I was shown the clothesline in the backyard.  It’s one of those sort of octagonal kind that have tons of wires going octagonally around, with lots of little plastic clothespins.  Very cool.  I remember Grandma and Mother doing that!

Today was a sunny day in San Miguel — temp was about 78 degrees and there was a breeze blowing about 10 miles an hour.  I washed 5 loads of clothes, hung them up and they all dried in less than 3 1/2 hours.  Now that beats our gas dryer at home all to pieces.  We simply can’t get them dry that fast in a dryer.  And tonight the sheets will smell so nice and fresh.  Ahhhhh!

Besides, to tell the truth, it was a peaceful and joyful activity, outside in the sun and breeze, nothing pressing, no phone, no TV, no car, no schedule, no problem, and I enjoyed it.  Yes, the joys of laundry —  are for real!Laundry Day
