Kristi's Photo a Day

Day 8



It was so nice today that Serena and I were outside without coats. The sun is so wonderfully warm here in the winter. I hung out two loads of laundry and she played. Took some pictures of her playing and the laundry but this was so sweet I had to post it. :D

Here's a laundry shot just for fun. I love the idea that I am drying winter clothes outside. Can you tell I was obsessed with reds against the blue sky?



ETA I had to respond to JoAnn's disbelief that I hang laundry. I begrudgingly started hanging laundry this fall - the sun is so strong here and it is so dry I felt guilty not at least trying it. Well turns out I LOVE it. I love the time outside at times I wouldn't ordinarily go out. I love how the laundry smells. And most of all I love spinning my little line to sort by family member as I take it down and folding outside. Every time it is even remotely warm and sunny I get excited and I put laundry in first thing so I can hang it out. Does this make me an eco-dork?

  7. Gorgeous photo of Serena - and the laundry :) The red does look fantastic against the bright blue sky!
    I hang laundry all the time - there is just nothing that beats the smell of laundry that's hung to dry outside! It's so windy here most of the time that it just gets dry really quickly too!

  8. Love the pink and blue! I wish we could hang laundry but then hanging laundry in the bathroom doesn't compare to hanging it outside! :)

  10. Such a sweet photo of Serena. We had to hang our laundry for about 6 months when our dryer went out and I didn't mind it but it is sooooo cold here now everything would freeze and I'd need my dryer to thaw it out. That's too many steps for me!

    I LOVE that photo of Serena! And, you're right -- the red and blue are a great contrast. I want to capture more of those types of "visuals" in my photos this year.

  12. Gorgeous photos! Amazing colors and the most beautiful smile.
    About hanging the laundry outside, it's already dark here but I just looked at the temperature, we have -10°Celsius right now (about 12 degrees Fahrenheit) so I think I'll wait until Spring is back. So nice you have such a mild winter.

  16. great photos! but I'd be the lady that forgets to bring it in before it rains and it would need washing all over again! But you are right, it does smell wonderful when hung in the sun. Just not the same when I hang it in the basement, even with a heater and a dehumidifier, but it stays clean and doesn't freeze :)
