I am always so thankful on laundry day. (photo by Elizabeth, taken in Italy)
I am kind of an old-fashioned woman and do my laundry on Mondays. You remember what the dish towels always said -
Sunday - church
Monday - laundry
Tuesday - ironing
Oops, I forgot a few. Is Thursday for cleaning house, Friday for shopping, and Saturday for cooking?
Why am I always so thankful on laundry day? Because I don't have to carry the water in to heat on a wood stove where I carry the wood in and the ashes out; I don't have to scrub the clothes on a scrub board, breaking my back as I lean over the thing; I don't have to carry the water out and then spend hours hanging up the clothes only to have the weather not co-operate and have to bring them back inside.
What things remind you to be thankful?
