Saturdays are usually laundry days around here.
The use of water is cheaper on the weekends.
It was the perfect day!
Gorgeous sunshine and a summery breeze.
My husband had just cut the grass.
Cut grass is one of the summer smells I enjoy.
I remember watching Mom hanging up the clothes.
Everything had to hung in groups.
I still remember seeing all the cloth diapers on the line when my youngest brother was a baby.
(He's almost 48!)
They were all hung in a row.
Nothing different hung in between.
When I was old enough to start hanging up the laundry,
I hung up whatever I saw next in the basket.
That was a huge NO NO!
All the socks had to be hung together, all the t-shirts, all the pants,
You get the idea.
A few years ago, the girls in my family went on a road trip to Strasburg PA.
We had a lovely time. Lots of shopping and good eating.
We saw the story of Joseph at the Sight and Sound Theatre.
I highly recommend you go if you get the chance.
We left on a Monday, and that is laundry day for the Amish.
The picture above is the best shot I could get as we were driving in the car.
But you can see all the towels are together.
They hung their laundry the same way my mother did.
Another one of my favourite summer smells,
is the summery breezy smell as I crawl into my sheets at night.
I take a few deep inhales and enjoy the aroma.
That fragrance lasts for almost a week.
Do you get to enjoy that fragrance of fresh laundry hung outside?
Wishing you lots of summer goodness.
