One of my first posts on this blog was about washing. It was late summer or early spring and I was happily hanging out my washing outside and having it dry and ready to bring in at the end of the day. What a joy! The only thing I really really enjoy about summer is being able to do that LOL.
It's mid-winter here now and I'm still hanging out my washing. But now, it is pegged or folded over a clothes horse and placed over a heater vent. The picture above shows one of my three clothes horses. You can see the heater vent at the bottom. This window also faces west and so any afternoon sun comes streaming in, aiding in the drying process. It takes about a day and a half to dry. It seems winter laundry baskets are always full of washing that needs doing.
It is times like this I am sorely tempted to just throw what I can in the dryer! I hate using the dryer. The cost of electricity that it requires horrifies me. But I am starting to think I need to get on top of the washing that seems to be piling up LOL.
