Washing Clothes

Monday, June 25, 2012

 Water splashing, hands soaked and squeezing, garments wet a dripping...thus our day will progress in the summer, on occasion. What is this phenomenon on our back porch? Why, clothes washing of course! No, I do not mean to say that we wash all of our clothes by hand (imagine how long that would take!) but two certain little sisters of mine absolutely love to hand wash some of their cotton dresses, pretending to be Laura and Carrie Ingalls. So Momma gets out the metal ice bucket, they fill it with water from the hose, a few bubbles, and scrub away.  It's beautiful to see how happy they can be while working, and I don't protest in the least. (how cute are soap-stained faces & hands?)

What chores do you enjoy?

pssst! don't forget to enter the giveaway - it ends june 30th.
