Is it me?





Is it me? Or am I the one of the lonely who still feel comfort in hanging my clothes on a real clothesline? For me, it gives me time to take things down a notch. To feel the warmth of the sun on my skin and hear the birds sing. To see flowers growing in my backyard in different stages of their lifecycles. And more importantly, time to reflect. Listen to my inner thoughts that the busyness of life drowns out during the day. A time to reconnect with my thoughts and to visit memories of my childhood and to somehow feel connected to generations of the women of my family. My clothesline ... a simple but complex blessing of my life.

I see you're new to blogging. Welcome and you're going to love it. Are you friends with Tiff for real? She's a blogging friend of mine.

And BTW, me and clothelines do not go together. Dryer all the way for me. But, it definitely was a simpler time when everyone did have to use them.

Talk to you soon.

Good afternoon ladies... Yep, Tiff has been a CyberSister of mine since oh gosh... what, Tiff? 8 years, possibly 9 years! Although we haven't met face to face, Tiff knows me better than most people I know and work with.

Nice to meet you "belle".

YOu are not alone here. I enjoy hanging up clothes on the line too. I love the fact that I am helping to save energy and have the earth working for me. The clothes smell good and it is a time to relax and take a moment.

Glad to come upon your blog!
