A Strange Beauty

I love finding photos in unexpected places.

Like in the dryer.

When I took the lint trap out to clean it, I noticed how pretty the colours were.  All these little fuzzies were caught up in a wavy line along the bottom of it, looking very much to me like abstract art.

So I grabbed my camera and spent some time photographing it from different angles before I finished doing the laundry.

It was much more fun than housework.

The Clothesline


I love hanging out laundry.

I love sorting the sizes (I’ve even been known to rearrange!) from longest to shortest, love snapping the clothespins onto the edges of towels, and love looking out the window at the clothes flapping in the wind.

It is a moment I look forward to after each winter’s thaw, and enjoy until my fingers freeze in the fall.

It is an excuse to get fresh air and still be productive. It is a quiet minute to feel the heat of the sun, see the trees, and listen to the sounds of summer.

Now, if only the hornets would stay away…
