Laundry Day at My Cottage

My day so far.

Webster and I hung out two loads of clothes today. It was very mild with temperatures in the mid 60s.

I always hang the wicker laundry basket on a piece of rough bark sticking out of this tree.

These ugly apples from a friend's orchard are the most delicious I have ever tasted. We picked all we could reach with our long apple picker on Saturday.

The sun was shining brightly on these leaves and they almost looked as if they were on fire.

You have Californias weather!
We have's only 50 right now...47 here at the cottage!
I am actually enjoying the crispness in the air and the sweater wearing ;)

Our temperatures reached into the 70s today but will drop once again tonight. I would love to have a place to hang clothes out to dry. What type of apple? Happy Monday! Bonnie

Rosemary and Webster, you have turned this Monday's wash into a work of art.

Happy to see someone else hanging out clothes to dry. I do it whenever I can to avoid using electricity. Today was a perfect day for it - about 75 and breezy.

Sounds like you and Webster had a wonderful day. I was with my parent's in the morning for a doctor visit and lunch with them, then checked the progress of the addition and off with a girlfriend to chair hunt for her new house that is being built. Fun day!

I was thrilled to be able to still have a day this week that I could hang out laundry--mid 50's with a stiff breeze. I'm hanging onto line-dried sheets as long as possible! I despise the dryer and the "burnt" smell and wrinkles it imparts on everything it touches!!

I have clothesline envy!

Did you take the apple picture with your iPhone, it's very, very nice? The apple, the plate, the leaf on the apple all in all a perfect Fall composition.
