♪♫She left the suds in the bucket♪♫ and the clothes hangin' out on the line..♪♫

Despite my slogan "musings of a country girl stuck in the city', I can assure you that I have adjusted quite well to my plight.

It may just surprise you to hear me say this, but I actually enjoy city living. However there are lots of country things I do miss....
the smell of hay, cattle, and horses. The sound of the whippoorwill lulling me to sleep. 

But mostly, I miss the smell of clothes drying on the line. 
Easy enough to rectify....


Yes, you might be a redneck living in the city if you dry your clothes on the deck....

Does it look tacky? No! 
 Okay - yes!! It does! 

But I don't care because these garments are going to smell heavenly when they're completely dry!

Luckily, I don't live in a subdivision and don't have to adhere to HOA rules. 

And since the deck/backyard are private I don't have to worry about it being an eyesore to the neighbors.

Ahhh, I just love the smell of clothes drying on the line,  hanging off the outdoor furniture. 
Don't you?

I do the exact same thing, my porch is covered. I really need to get an actual clothes line.

I agree! I love the smell of fresh air dried items, especially cotton sheets! I wish I could do it, but we have an HOA.

Oh Kathy, made me think of my grandma! I can still smell those sheets of hers when you would climb into her bed! Love that smell!

I love line dried clothes. I hang my wearing clothes on the shower rod, but it is not the same thing. They don't have that line dried smell. My mother has a clothesline and uses it. She line dries all of her wearing clothes and her sheets.
