I love my clothesline. Really. Just thinking about it makes me smile.
It’s just so beautiful, visually and spiritually. With the start of spring I know that I can begin to use my clothesline neglected all winter long. This past weekend I hung out my sheets for the second time this year. When I went to bed that night it felt so crisp and so clean.
I wish I could explain how much happiness I feel when I hang out my clothes. I’m not sure what it is exactly. Something like a combination of that feeling you get when you do good, and that feeling of complete peace. I feel so peaceful when I’m out there. It’s so quiet. It’s just you, the sunshine, the breeze, and the refreshment of cool, wet clothes on your skin. It is quite heavenly.
Now let’s just hope my dogs don’t poop under and around my line!
National Hanging Out Day is April 19.
