Laundry

We finally got a laundry line!  I have been wanting one and we were at Home Depot the other day and my dreams were fulfilled.  I don't care so much about hanging my underwear or pants out to dry on the line for the whole world to see what size I wear, but I do want to hang my sheets.  I have such fond memories of my mom hanging our sheets on the line to dry and the smell of them as you crawl into bed was just bliss.  Little B-Rose helped me today.  She handed me the clothespins and we worked on her math skills.  I would tell her I need 2 and her little mind would start racing and by golly she would give me 2.  Have I told you just how smart she is lately and how sweet this little girl is?  She speaks so well.  We can almost have conversations now.  Her new favorite thing is telling me when something is funny.  She says "Momma, thats funny".  I wish I had any savvy at a video camera because you need to hear her.  Such a sweetie!

What little kid doesn't love running through sheets on a laundry line?
Speaking of laundry you need to check out the new Avett Brother's song "Laundry Room".  It is  a new favorite for me.  It will be on their new album in September but they are starting to release some songs now.  You won't be disappointed.

Seriously, Sun... really great photos. The one of her legs under the fitted sheet? I need it in my room. I love it.

We have all the pieces for a laundry line, but it's not out in the yard yet. Way to get it done!

Even your everyday pictures are great, such talent.
My Pickens friends are to arrive in 2wks, I told them to wave as they drive by.

These pictures are bliss! I miss you guys and wish you could come for a visit. I know you have been extra busy with your photography business. Maybe the Grants and the Lowrances can make a visit sometime soon? Whitewater center, swimming pool, skate ramp, fish camp food...am I tempting you enough?

You know, I could totally see you as a laundry line kind of gal.. I mean you just do everything so perfectly I am always amazed! Love the photos too.. they make me want to play in them! And your grass is so green, I'm green with envy.. (our backyard is a dirt pit) but the green will come!

Definitely get BR's voice on something.. I need to hear her sweet voice say "mommy that's funny!"..
