Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Thompson, I had two spare metal fence posts after work was done at this house so I set them in concrete and built myself a four-strand clothesline. I understand your glee at having the use of one with special features! I find hanging the laundry to be peaceful; the process of standing back there behind the greenhouse, surrounded by (not under) trees, hanging sheets and clothes. The dogs are usually hanging out nearby enjoying my company and I'm listening to birds and neighbor's wind chimes. I like the process of reusing available materials (a portion of my fence was removed to put in the new garage so I sledge-hammered off the old concrete footers, and I had a cedar 2x4 piece of lumber to cut into two and mount on the fence brackets. All I needed to buy were the heavy duty hooks for the cedar, the metal rope channels, and the nylon clothes line.)
