HOT LAUNDRY

Hot Laundry: Acrylic and Pastel.
                                                
I have to admit that I am really grateful not to wash my laundry and hang it out on the line in 100 some degree heat as my grandma did.  My mother insisted that all our laundry be dried outside in the sun and warm sea air.  But she didn’t do it.  The housekeeper did it.

Me.  My fifteen year old washing machine died last Friday.  It had Friday’s laundry in it, washed, full of soap, but unrinsed.  We removed the clothes, wrung them out, and popped them in the dryer.  G called the repair folks.  They came out Monday, and decided that it was not the motor.  Oh, hurrah.  They left us waiting for the part.

George went to work. 

I bagged last week’s laundry including the sheets, Grabbed HP-6, and got George to drive me to the corner laundromat.  Thank you G.  There I was faced with massive construction, cute new, gay owners, and all new massive machines.   Frankly, they were almost beyond me.

When we got home, there were the dried soapy clothes forgotten in the dryer.

This morning I bagged up the semi soapy but dried clothes and headed to the laundromat. 

“Oh, you’re back,” said one of the owners with a smile.

  • Myself:  Finding myself in a domestic day.
  • Photo:  Mine.
  • Reading:  Harry Potter 6…the last one.
  • Gratitude’s:  George has to be tired of running me hither and yon.

  1. You don’t realize the real value of an appliance sometimes until it’s broken.

  3. "But she didn’t do it. The housekeeper did it." Priceless.

  6. One of my favourite jobs is hanging laundry on the line but we never have 100 degree heat.

  7. Love the impressonistic/contemporary painting. Very springlike. All of my appliances are beginning their 13th year. I dread when the fridge goes!!

    1. Thank you. It's 3' and a half feet by 4. Lots of wow factor. In 25 years. we replaced all our kitchen appliances once. Yes, the Bosch dishwasher get's the dishes really clean, but every couple of months, you have to go in and clean it. Ugh.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
