I have wanted a clothesline ever since I moved here. Sounds like a simple thing, right? But I ran out of extra money for projects and, to tell you the truth, I’ve never been overly handy at doing things with my hands (except for painting of course—I have no idea why the universe gave me that exception, except that probably I’m meant to paint—you think?). Anyway, a clothesline. Ah, to be able to hang my sheets out to dry in this lush mountain air! Even in the winter when there’s snow on the ground, when the sun is out, it’s warm enough to dry things outside.
Kim has the best clothesline hanging off his Airstream (see previous post A Very Mini Artist’s Colony) and he did me the favor of hanging my sheets out the other day. Talk about BLISS! To snuggle into those fresh sheets on that first night was sublime. So he got to thinking… why couldn’t I use the structure of the kitty enclosure to create a clothesline? Why not indeed!
So he made me a clothesline, just like that. And I have to say that every time I see laundry flapping in the breeze out there it makes me smile. So I wanted to share this small, delightful, simple pleasure with you all.
Here’s to life’s many simple beauties. May we recognize and celebrate them every single day.
Love to you all,
