Clothesline Reflections

During the summer, spring and sometime fall months I love to hang my clothes on the line. Not only do the clothes smell fresh and saves money on electricity, but there is something so peaceful about hanging clothes.

ClotheslineSun is shining, birds chirping,  and blue skies overhead. It’s a perfect time for thinking, planning, or just taking a much needed break from the busy of other things. It’s accomplishing something without having to focus on it. Do you know what I mean?

We’re only one week away from the last Polyface Farm Field Day. Team members start arriving next week and we’re working on food items and farm clean up. It’s one of the busiest weeks of year for us, that’s not even mentioning that we’re in the middle of hay season too.

I’m in the middle of launching a new website which I’m hoping to post more about in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. Sneak peek the Facebook page here.

Life sometimes gets a little crazy, doesn’t it? For me, I like to take the little tasks and use them to reflect and slow down a little (at least in my mind). It’s kind of like taking time to smell the roses.

What do you do to de-stress? What’s your favorite non-thinking chore?

Take some time today to think and reflect and slow your mind down from the constant shuffle of life. Just breathe. 🙂

Happy Friday!

    My favorite non-thinking chores always happen in front of a cutting board. Peeling apples, potatoes, seeding tomatoes…you name it, if it involves a paring knife and my two hands it puts me at peace.

    For me, it is chopping vegetables to make a huge pot of soup. So relaxing.

    Beautiful picture! My clothesline is no more, sadly…but I live in town so it was never as lovely a view. 😛

    I loooooove watering and weeding the garden. If I can do it without my youngsters hanging off of my legs, lol…then it’s probably my most relaxing chore!

    I might be the only one bothered by this picture, but over lap the sheets slightly and use 1 clothespin. If you do this down the line you’ll use half the amount of clothespins.
