  1. Sorbet is a great thing to be grateful for, but today I’m grateful that I got some laundry done before the rains began.

    • You must hang your clothes outside?

    • Yes, you’re right. In fact, I don’t even own a dryer.

    • Huh, then do you hang inside in the winter or does it not get that cold or does it get that cold but you hang outside anyways? So many laundry questions…you don’t have to air your dirty laundry if you don’t want too…hee hee

    • Australians have these amazing clotheslinesโ€”the Hills Hoist.
      It gets cold enough here to be awkward sometimes in winter, but we can work around it. The saying for putting laundry on the line goesโ€”out by 11 and in by 3. And if they happen to be a bit damp when I bring them in, I just drape them on a frame or around the living room. Pretty much everyone does this.
      Alternatively, if it’s not going to rain, you can leave them out overnight and they are completely dry by 1pm the next day.

    • Very interesting. It looks similar to our clotheslines, we have two types, one where you have two t-shaped wood pieces about 10′ apart and rope going from one wood piece to the other and there are several rows of rope, and the other looks alot like yours. In my winters my clothes would be able to stand up on their own when I brought them in…ha! They would be frozen stiff. Thanks for the link of Hills Hoist.

    • When I was growing up in Nebraska, we had a clothesline like the one you’ve described. My mother used to hang out clothes in winter. She’d leave them out all day and then bring them in to a line in the basement.

    • Ohhh you grew up in Nebraska, how long have you lived in Australia? I’ve always been drawn to Australia, it seems like a wonderful place. My Mom used to hang ours out in the nice months but never in the winter and we did not have an indoors line.
