I'm trying to get the hang of blogging. Still. I feel like I have no clue what I am doing. I'm evolving shall we say. And dear Face Book is taking a lot of time. Evolving another side. I'm happy with that now and want to turn from Face Book a bit while I try to blog more. All that to say that I've been poking around the blogging sphere and found this:

Gift of Green's Clothesline Challenge 2009

Isn't that just the cutest button ever?? I naturally joined the challenge and am almost a Super Star! But I have this wonderful helper who prefers to toss things in the dryer. I am not one to argue with husband helpers, so my goal is to maintain Advanced.
So far, so good. In May we did 18 loads of laundry. 16 were dried on our clotheslines. Now in June I did two loads yesterday and hung them both. (That was all the vacation laundry. Can you believe it? Shows how we practically lived in our swim suits.)
Are you up for the challenge? Go for it!!

I used to hang dry our clothing BUT...2 doors plus 1 gate or 2 doors plus 1 gate or 1 door plus 2 gates to get to the clothesline with #50 of laundry and guess what? I ran out of steam. Add to the mix a giant Newfie puppy who EATS laundry and the fact that a tornado drove our trampoline through the clothes line and tore it apart and I'm at the point that it would take a much cuter button, as well as a better located clothes line ;) to get me back out there.
Our power bill reflects my poor attitude.
Hope you're having a good summer!

What? not cute enough??

but I so understand the treck out to the line, and it sounds like your laundry's had quite the adventure. I don't think it's poor attitude. I think you're keeping it real.

Our summer so far is fantastic! It looks like yours is too.
