Well it’s been about 4 months and I’m still going strong with the whole line drying thing. It was something that happened quite by accident. I really hadn’t given line drying a second thought when we moved in because I didn’t do it where we moved from, so why should I worry about it now? But there was this thing that was bolted onto the side of the screen porch and I had no idea what it was until Kathy came over and and was like, “Oh, that’s a retractable clothesline. See you just pull it out, hook it on the other end then make it tight by pushing this thing over.” Uh, what? Can you explain that again? LOL!
But what that did was get me to thinking. And once I get to thinking there’s no stopping me. Just get out of the way, the thinking train is a comin’. I decided to do a little experiment on just the money we could save, which I posted about here.
But then something happened. I found myself REALLY enjoying the whole process.
A. I get my vitamin D each day.
B. It just plain gets me outside to enjoy nature. I love listening to the birds and feeling the breeze on my face.
C. It’s saving us tons of money. YES!
D. I get to wear a really cute apron that I made out of an old sheet I bought at a thrift store, to hold the clothes pins.
E. There is a gardenia “tree” right next to where I hang the clothes and it smells heavenly.
F. It does something to my hubby because he’ll walk by while I’m doing it and whistle and start carrying on like he’s a school boy. LOL! Must be the money I’m saving him. Hey if that’s all it takes I’d be out here in sub zero weather. LOL!
I admit it’s getting a little warm out there these days (low 90’s) but if I time it right it’s not so bad.
What chore brings you unexpected pleasure?
HAVE A FABULOUS DAY MY FRIENDS!
