Hanging Out: The Clothesline
So apparently clothesline is hard to find in Brentwood, Tenn. I confess that maybe I didn't put as much energy into the search as I could, but the stores I checked were without clothesline options.
Thus introducing my makeshift clothesline. Until I am able to get a real clothesline, this will do. And I happen to think that as makeshift as she is, she's a pretty darn cute clothesline! I'm excited!
According to the website for An Inconvenient Truth, "You can save 700 pounds of carbon dioxide when you air dry your clothes for 6 months out of the year."
Unfortunately, some communities ban clothing lines for aesthetic purposes. But I think they're fun! And they save money, preserve your clothes (all the lint in the dryer has to come from somewhere), and save the environment. Why not take in the free gift of the sun and hang out most of the year?!?
