I Love Doing Laundry Now

August 4th, 2019 at 01:34 pm

It's because of my clothesline. I used to hate doing my laundry. I used to procrastinate on it for as long as I could. My sister had this running joke where she'd call me at 10pm the night before I had to go on a trip to check and see if I was doing laundry - I would postpone it for as long as I could. I'd wait till I was down to my last pair of underwear. I don't know what I hated about it, but I just hated it.

Not so now. On Sunday, I wash my clothes, and then hang them up on my lovely clothesline in my lovely backyard. It has been quite warm lately, so in about a half hour or 45 min, they are all dry. Apart from saving me money and extending the life of my dryer, there is something so therapeutic about it. They smell so wonderful as they dry in the sun. I love pulling them off the line and carrying them in.

I'm sure some of you will think I am weird - getting so excited about laundry. But, if you knew how much I hated laundry before, you would know how big this is for me. :-)


I harvested some hot chilis, three red plum tomatoes, 3 green beans and two zucchini today.

I did a bunch of cooking for the week.

I cleaned up my yard, pulled some weeds, added more material to the composter, cut some flowers for my table.

I feel so freaking domestic. I love it!!!! Living in MY house, getting veggies from MY garden, washing MY clothes and hanging them on MY clothesline. I am so grateful to be able to be in a position in my life and live in a place where it is possible for a 40 year old single woman to own her own home, be able to pay for it, and to love the small and wonderful delights within it.

Have a lovely week, everyone!

    I chuckled over your domestic comment...there is a lot to be said to having a lovely home, a lovely garden, and fending for yourself. Well done!
