Today was the first day I've been able to hang my laundry outside this year. Hooray, hoorah!
After the cottonwoods were finally done 'snowing' and after three weeks of rain, the weather went straight for temp's in the 90's. We kind of expected that, and no complaints here - at least we're under 100!
I have three lines in my backyard, and my awesome IKEA rack which can hold a whole load by itself (and is especially great for dishcloths, kids' tshirts, cloth napkins, underpants and socks).
I love hanging my laundry outside. I love having the excuse to take a few minutes in my backyard under the cottonwood trees and hang or fold laundry, several times a day. I love watching the kids play behind/under the flapping sheets.
I love that it's better for the earth, too.
Now where did all my clothespins go? I ask that every year. I really need a clothespin bag, I guess...
p.s. Go read Molly's post about hanging laundry, too.
EDITED TO ADD:
The first load dried very quickly on the line - the second one? I had to take it in nearly dry... because of a thunderstorm.
Aaaannd.... we're back.
