Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Day Twenty-Eight of Thanks

Giving Thanks Post Day Twenty-Eight
My Clothesline

I am very thankful for my clothesline.
The smell of line dried clothes is one of my favorite scents,
especially the sheets!
I enjoy the act of hanging the clothes on the line.
I like seeing them hanging there all in order,
blowing in the breeze.
I have lived in places where clothesline were not allowed,
but that never seemed to stop me!
We fought it and won!! : )
I am thankful that where we live now there is no such silly rule.
There are a lot of people who hang their clothes out around here.
My current clothesline.
Another one of my clotheslines at another place I've lived.
I even had a clothesline when we lived in a townhouse without a yard.
Here it is up on the deck.  There was rope through blocks of wood
with hooks which hung over the top on the sides of the deck.
The lines were easy to put up and take down as needed.
I am also thankful for all the money I've saved over the years
NOT having a dryer.

A happy day to you my friends.
Make it a good one.

  1. I love the smell of sheets when they've hung outside! A lot of places don't allow clothes lines any more and I think it's such a shame. Have a blessed day.

  2. I agree with you very much Karen! I love to hang out clothes too. We gave up our dryer 20 years ago. As long as it is sunny and above freezing I will hang out!
    Have a good weekend.

  3. Wow, now I wish I had a clothes line. Have a great day and weekend!

  4. Never knew there was such a rule, but I've also never seen anyone personally use one in many many years.

  5. I remember that fresh aroma of clothes dried outside. For several years, I used a clothesline and didn't have a dryer. That changed when the girls were born, though. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving Day!

  6. Hello dear K! I love clotheslines, too! I especially like your resourceful town home clothes line!

  7. Now there's a positive attitude to hanging out the laundry!

  8. Some days I wish I still had a clothesline. It's not a good mix with a backyard of bird feeders!

  9. It is a silly rule, but I am amazed you don't have a dryer for cold and wet days.

  10. I love my dryer, but would also enjoy having a clothesline, if only the clothes would smell like fresh air...
