I hang laundry while standing on the bench so I can reach the line. I feel a bit rebellious since someone once told me I should be careful.
I admit that I do have a preference for using the same colour pegs for each item — I even back-track and change the pegged colour if I’ve messed up. I also choose the peg colours to suit the colour of the item I’m hanging. Where does that come from? And why?
It’s very comforting to hang according to some order/some personal rules, whatever they may be.
I choose to put the heavier items first because they take longer to dry. I hang pants from the cuff, not from the waist which is often too thick for the pegs. I like to hang shirts and t-shirts across the middle of the torso so they leave less evidence of being captured by the pegs. I like to avoid ironing.
I hang towels and tea towels, etc. over the deck railing so there are no creases or peg marks, and to free-up space on the line.
When it’s time to bring them in, I have an obsession with tri-folded towels, tea towels and napkins.
I LOVE the smell.
I LOVE the colours.
When I take the pegs off the line, I just drop them into the bucket — sometimes they bounce out.
