There is one thing I've been wishing for during these hot summer days: days when the thermometer creeps up to 100 degrees (!) and we do all that we can to stay cool both inside and out. We have been grilling out instead of cooking inside, staying in the shade wherever we go, and little Hugo has been temporarily removed from the pack to relax on a blanket under a tree, because boy can he generate some body heat when pressed up against me.
As a family with three little kids, one of whom is in cloth diapers, we tend to do a good bit of laundry. I would say at least a load a day, sometimes two. And all of that drying in the machine generates a good bit of heat! This morning Ben put up a clothes line in the yard, and it might as well have been Christmas morning, I was so happy!
Then imagine my elation when I discovered that Zosia apparently has a hidden passion for hanging clothes out to dry. She ran outside to help, she was so excited.
Look at that meticulous technique! All I can say is that the standard of household chores is going way up when this girl is old enough to take the reigns. I believe that sheet she's working on ended up with nine clothespins, by the way. Bring on the wind, that thing is not coming down.
