Our washing machine broke.Â A replacement has been arranged, but in the meantime, I wash things in the bathtub.Â I do this as seldom as possible. Things come out of the tub pretty wet and heavy.Â So that I don’t break the dryer, I hang them outside for several hours before drying.Â The first time I did this, it was the load that the washing machine made wet but wouldn’t swirl around.Â There wasn’t much choice about the timing.Â It rained.Â I wrung.
The next load I did got to bask in a bit of weekend sunshine.Â Spring is truly edging its way in.Â I took advantage of the light to play with my camera.
Little jammies drip.
Oh, is this what the lens hood is for?
On a work day, drying laundry like this is a bit of a gamble.Â You just look on helplessly if it decides to rain.Â Also there’s not much time before work to lean over the bathtub impersonating a washing machine.Â Also, impersonating a washing machine gives you Popeye forearms.
That’s why the new washing machine is going to have its work cut out for it when it arrives.
