Yesterday I found an outdoor clothesline locally. I was so excited, and it was only $52. Not sure how sturdy it is in the long run, but it works great right now. It’s a colapsible one, that spins, so I can stand pretty much in one spot. We also found a retractable single line, which we installed to hold blankets and sheets when needed. I felt like a kid at Christmas yesterday when we had finished installing both lines, lol. After we got them installed, I started a load of laundry and guess what? The washer wasn’t working. I had to laugh because I really wanted the clotheslines so that I wouldn’t have to go to the laundromat because I don’t like to talk to folks while folding unmentionables. And here my washer broke so I’d have to. God has a sense of humor eh? But He also has much grace. He brought back to my memory a time when the repair man came out for this same error code, and I remembered what he did. So, I did what the repairman did, and my washer is happily washing a load of laundry now. God is good. The washer does have a tiny leak in the door, but that isn’t urgent yet. I’d like to save a bit of money specifically for a new washer before buying one.
Because I ran out of laundry detergent last week, and couldn’t afford to buy more we are once again behind on the wash. But I only have about 5 loads this time, so I should be able to get caught up today. Well as caught up as you can get with Mount Never-rest.
As far as crafting goes, I have been making face scrubbies for my family that work wonderfully. I’m going to make each member of our family a different color so it’s easy to keep track of whose is whose. And I bought some inexpensive yarn, and some super cheap double pointed knitting needles and when I watch my Mom’s house in a couple weeks, I plan to try to learn to make socks.
Well, that is a slightly boring update of what’s up in my world these past few days.
