Clothesline Transitioning

I find that one important factor of being a 100% air-drying laundress, is also being open to constant transition.  I was reminded of this today while hanging my laundry outside on the clothesline;  summer is on its way out.  I hang my clothes in the backyard, which usually gets full sun for most of the summer.  Today I noticed a sharp decrease in the angle of the sun,  being in a more southerly position it casts a longer shadow in my north-facing backyard.

I’m realizing that my halcyon days of sunny summer outdoor hanging are drawing to a close.  Autumn is near.  Shortly I’ll have drying racks filling up my kitchen space — oh, the freedom of having all the laundry hanging outside, soon gone!

In the meantime, I’m doing sort of a hybrid air-drying thing;  I’m using my drying racks outside.  I position them out in the backyard where the sun is still hitting, and load ’em up.  I don’t want to waste any precious sun, limited in scope that it might be.  I will always find a way to air-dry!
