|Fresh laundry on the newly installed clothesline|
...but there was one small problem...my clothesline had been taken down in the the wake of Hurricane Irene this past August for fear of tree damage (the tree it was attached to is dead) http://alacartegreen.blogspot.com/search/label/Hurricane. But never fear, hubby to the rescue!
Besides being a warm April Day, we also had a holiday celebrating Patriot's Day in MA, and the Boston Marathon. For those of you who live outside of MA, Patriot's Day is a state holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord and the start of the Revolutionary War. With hubby home for the holiday, he agreed to reinstall the clothesline in a new tree and after some effort, sweat, and thankfully no swears or injuries from tree climbing, the clothesline is back up! It didn't take long for me to get the fresh load of laundry up on the line and take advantage of saving some energy.
