And what does it look like at your house today? We got about two to three inches of snow (Mankato, just an hour from us got eight inches – sigh) but lots of wind!
This past week has been a busy one for both Norm and I. He is starting to work on the washing machine – well, actually, getting the area ready to move the machine into the house and use. Our wringer works well, for washing, but the drain doesn’t, so we need to drain the water outside with a long hose running out the door. Then the lovely laundry sink I have doesn’t have a drain (see above) so we rinse our clothes in a five-gallon bucket and Norm dumps that outside. And, now, the wringer is broken so Norm wrings the clothes out by hand. Now this may all be well and good for youngsters with energy, but for old fogies with weak hands and sensitive necks, it ain’t so hot!! I am really looking forward to the modern automatic so I can wash just one load of clothes, if desired, and at midnight, if desired! We can still hang outside or use the rack in the kitchen (or bathtub – as we do since the clothes drip too much when hand wrung) or we can use the dryer when desired. I can’t wait!
Norm got the stain out and I stained my new spinning wheel; Norm helped me put it together so I can now spin on it. (Aurora got a wheel for Christmas! Now she has joined us obsessers!)
It is a beautiful sunny day today – you have a beautiful day!
