“’cause there’s something in a sunday, makes your body feel alone”

April 6, 2009

It’s beginning to be a house! A house with a clothesline, no less.

laundry

The weather’s been absolutely ridiculous lately, so i only just got to the using the clothesline part this weekend. And then it rained (again). But not disastrously, only a sprinkle. Plus which, i’m from the sort of place (and family) where you never complain about rain. A few notes on clotheslines:

Clothespins do their job; don’t sweat it. We had the sort of wind that could knock you over all day yesterday, with no ill results. In fact, the wind kept the clothes nice and soft, not crisped like clothes that dry in the still, still sun.

sorry about the upside-down girl

Your neighbors can see your underwear. If we had neighbors. But all will be well; just remember Miss Avarice’s advice.

also your cute hanging socks

I want one of those clothespin baskets that hangs on the line, as well as line tighteners so that i can un-rig it and have proper pulley lines.

And, well, sometimes there’s bird shit on your pajama pants. But that’s okay, because i can do my laundry outside with the sun and the puppies. And because she says it turns her on when i’m domestic. I think, perhaps, she’s perfect for me (also, see below).

so this is what she does when she's up all night!

so this is what she's up to all night! are they not gorgeous?

and this is what i do (with the -griddle- on our shiny new stove!) when i'm up all morning.

and this i'm up to (stealing cookies) all morning. with the griddle on our shiny new stove!

    Ah those cookies look great!

    I can’t deal with laundry hung out on a line to dry. It’s so stiff and uncomfortable, I love the feel of a tumble in the dryer. For my clothes, of course, not me. I could also never get comfortable with the idea of hanging everything out there for all to see. Maybe one day when I live far enough in seclusion I’ll reconsider.

    hehe. so far i haven’t had any stiff-clothes problems, but it’s still springtime. as far as i can tell the stiffness is due to direct hot sunlight (and leaving them too long). but i can totally respect not thinking your laundry ought to be so high maintenance =)

    yes, the cookies were delicious. except the orange ones – they were kinda gross (cheapy-cheap fake orange flavor not recommended for anything ever)
