The topic: When I opened the house up


I opened the front door. Occasionally, we get a hummingbird in the entry, they try to fly up to get out, but there is a skylight, so they can't. This morning, there were three hummingbirds!

I told Brian and he pulled out the ladder and got them one at a time. The last one just sat on his hand, the poor thing was so tired. But, it did fly away, hopefully to never go into our entry again.

The topic: The laundry I did yesterday


And hung up....was mostly still damp when I took the stuff off of the line right at sunset.  The towels and blankets were tossed into the dryer (aarrrgh!) and the socks and underwear where put into a basket for folding. Except the socks were still damp. Okay, so, hanging up laundry on a day where the temperature barely breaks 60° and there's no breeze is a waste of time.

Not having tried the delay option on the washer and knowing that today will be in the seventies, I put my cleaning towels in last night so that their first launder would be done by 7:30 this morning, then I could do the second launder (where I add just vinegar to the water to get rid of all the detergent residue). That went well. Now, there's a load of jeans and sweatpants. I have shirts that need to be done, but I don't know if I'll get that far today. Depends on the heat.
