pointedly domestic tasks in which i take great pleasure



+hanging laundry on the clothesline
+hand washing dishes in a sink full of warm soapy water

... and their logical counterparts that I despise:

+ loading the washing machine.
+ loading/unloading the dishwasher

Sometimes the old school ways are still the best.

Hi Ginger

I love hanging clothes on the line. ummm that wonderful smell and what better way to dispense with cellulite than a brisk rub with a line dried towel. But!___Hand washing dishes? YUK. Too many years of that after meals for six people. No. I would give up almost any appliance except the dishwasher. And I would sure hate to go back to the old washer with a wringer and two tubs for rinsing. Swinging the wringer over between the tubs and once getting my hand and wrist run through the wringer. My grandma Bunch was there and she pulled the plug fast to stop it. Not fun.

Love your clothes line display. Are they quilts? Beautiful.
