Wash Wednesday

Now that we have had some sun and warm weather, I can finally participate in Garden Mama's Wash Wednesday!
Using the sun to dry our clothes is just so much more eco-friendly than a clothes dryer. And, for me, the methodical process of hanging each item up and taking it down again later is almost like a meditation to stop and think about my day. Our backyard doesn't get full sun, but we have finagled a spot that gets enough sun to get our clothes dry. And clothes on the line means non-rainy weather, and THAT sounds great to me!
Pin It Now!
