I just got back inside from the shed where the washer and dryer live.
This is the first time since spring of this year that it feels great to take my clothes out of the dryer. The air outside is chilly, so warm clothes against my skin is a treat.
In summer, warm clothes against my skin is...um...almost painful. Uncomfortable at very least.
Out back, there is also this clothes line. I don't use it much - my clothes I almost always dry in the dryer - but sometimes, towels and sheets - things that I don't wear and that suck up lots of heat in the dryer, find a place here.
But now that the rains have started (in the last few days) and the temps are dropping, it will probably be some time before I use these clothes pins any time soon.
