I love love love hanging out the laundry. It's a bit of a pain when it's raining because my house resembles the inside of a laundromat, but it's good practice for winter. On warm sunny days, I actually take my time, just listening to the birds and soaking in the sun. It's a nice, reflective time for me. I do a wash every day. Most of the washes are small, so I was psyched to see this cool, no electricity, minimal water usage, Wonder Wash. A perfect 10 year Anniversary gift for me, don't you think? "For the woman who has everything.." Bwa ha ha. Seriously though, I think I'll give it a try. I do have some small loads that give me serious guilt trips. Then again, Mae's monster loads are worth the real machine. We'll see. Yet again, very nice to see something out there that is an alternative to using energy and water for something I do every single day.
Ted starts HHS camp tomorrow and the other two JCC on Wed & Fri. I'm looking forward to a brief 2 weeks of routine before another week of mellow summer. Today, after biking to swim practice and then to the other pool, I swam laps again. My breaststroke is fine but my ridiculous ski injury (rotator cuff?) made freestyle slow and painful. Ted spent lots of time in the lap lane practicing his strokes or, literally, on the bottom of the pool sneaking up on me. Both Sam and Mae did a lot of swim-float-swim to me today too. A nice, mellow day.
