After a rainy week, we've had the perfect day for laundry, light and breezy. Our bedding, towels and clothes were dry and fresh-smelling within a few short hours, ready to be taken off the line and brought back home.
Usually, even in the winter we have more than enough sunshine for line-drying our laundry. We do not own a dryer. We do have an occasional few days now and then when it's too rainy to hang the laundry outside, and then I open my laundry rack inside the living room. It gives a cluttered look, to be sure, but there are only so many days we can do without a refreshed supply of clean socks.
I love the most those sunny days, though, when I'm out in the back yard, busy at my clothesline. Shira usually sits by my feet in the grass, playing with the clothespins. We're both enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. It's pure bliss.
After living my whole life in apartment buildings, I'm so happy to have our own home that is located right on the earth. Sometimes there's a fox creeping in the back yard, and the array of birds and insects is incredible. All we need to do to enjoy nature is take one step out of the door.
