Some rules are puzzling, aren’t they ?
Clotheslines were not allowed in our Ontario neighbourhood.
It was felt that they were unsightly, and would reduce property values !
Here in rural Newfoundland , almost everyone has an outdoor clothesline, and traditionally, laundry is done on Mondays, weather permitting, after the observance of the Sunday day of rest.
Sunlight and fresh air help to disinfect laundry, and help fabrics stay new-looking longer.
Today I am drying silk pillowcases, under the watchful eye of our Seagull pet, Scott, who is sunning himself.
I am happy to report that with the realization that electric clothes driers are great energy hogs, and with the movement towards green energy, many Ontario communities have now stopped their restrictions against outdoor clotheslines.
May God help us to increasingly enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
And may He, by his grace, help us not to take any of our freedoms for granted.
