The other major niggle was the fact that my dryer went ca-puts. Not a big deal you might say, I am a bit obsessive when it comes to the laundry, comes from having 5 kids and not many clothes I suppose. I was all in a dither about what I would do. Then it occurred to me, for heaven sake it is summer. I ran down to the store and for $5.62, I have a clothesline, (already had pins ). Yes it is a little more work, but I have always enjoyed hanging clothes. It started when I was just tiny, mom used to put me in a harness and tie me to the pole while she hung the clothes. Don't go thinking she was mean, I made it to adulthood alive under her watch, I was always into everything, climbing up something or going somewhere. When we moved onto our own property when I was about 6,7, years old, the first thing mom asked for was a clothes line, (she had a washer and dryer). I spent anytime I could hanging clothes with her and then my own. I did this as my children grew up too, there are many memories there. It has only been in recent years that I have forfeited this tradition, I am not sure why I did. The dryer breaking is still a pain, it will have to be fixed or replaced and it is one more priority before I can replace my antique computer, I will live through it and enjoy the cloths line in the meantime . Today as I was hanging clothes Lewis was there playing with the pins and handing them to me if I asked. What could be better than that.
