Laundry Day

Today we tackled laundry, not a big deal for most people, but since the spring has frozen we have to haul the water for the laundry and use the old wringer washer. (I never realized how much water you use to do a load of laundry!)

First off, Joe had to heat up the motor for the wash machine with a heat lamp, so it would be warm enough to start. Then, while I put the soap, warm water, and clothes in, Joe hauled water for the wash cycle. There were times when living in town I thought my wash machine was noisy, well, i changed my mind…..it purred like a kitten! The Maytag wringer motor is so loud you have to wear ear plugs!

The washing part is simple, just keep and eye on it. Then, my favorite part…. the wringing. (seriously, it is my favorite part)

Then, all that’s left is to hang them on the line. Its funny, it takes twice as long, but I have a new appreciation for clean clothes and a sense of accomplishment.

Success!!
Success!!

So, for the rest of the winter the old Maytag and I will keep us all looking (and smelling) respectable! I have to admit it was kind of fun…. not so sure I will feel the same when its below zero.

Until Spring!!!
Until Spring!!!
Its a good to not need to wear clothes!!!
Its good, to not have to wear clothes!!!
