My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Wash Day Before & after..

Today, I am thankful for my own Washer and Dryer.. As long as I am listing the "things" I am thankful for this is  one  luxury, although it may not seem like a luxury  in today's
Don't get me wrong ...On those sunny warm days  I Love to hang my clothes out on the clothesline. But now  during the colder, wetter months I am grateful I have indoor facilities to wash &  dry our clothes. I do remember in my early marriage  back in 1967 having to take my laundry to the laundromat because I could not afford a washer and dryer.. I remember hanging out on the line jeans to dry that became  frozen solid by the end of the day because they did not dry and bringing them inside to dry hanging by the fire.. Oh  that was a long time ago....
Can you imagine how it must have been to live in these times?

 I would have been one of   the first one to Go on Strike! We are  so fortunate  to have  the  modern day conveniences..don't you agree?
