Day 24 - Laundry Day


Monday is our laundry day most weeks. I know a lot of people especially with large families don't have one day dedicated to doing laundry. It's pretty much a load a day in their homes. Considering I live in an apartment though and have to use my kitchen sink to run the washing machine, we have a laundry day. I'm sure those in the snowy states wouldn't mind experiencing the toasty warmth created by the dryer, but in our little apartment and our 70+ degree temps it gets a little too warm in here.

BTW, thank you everyone for the feedback on the comment replies. I don't check back for replies to my comments either so good to know we are all on the same page. If I do get a question though I will try to post my response on that person's blog. Thanks again for all the comment love. :)

And you made laundry day looks really pretty :)

We usually do ours on the weekend. With the deep freeze here Hydro is asking everyone to use as little electricity as possible so I don't imagine much laundry is getting done today.
Nice choice for black and white.

I like how you've made an every day object look appealing. Black and white is perfect for this one....

When people question whether soemthing is or is not "normal," I simply tell them that, "'Normal' is a dryer setting." Your photo proves that point.

And yes, livig in frigid New England, I'd LOVE that extra warmth" Right now, I keep running back and forth between the computer and the woodstove. It's sort of like running from one era to another!

This is such a mundane object that you've made completely appealing. I LOVE the angle and the B&W conversion!!

Every day is laundry day at our house. With 5 of us, we make A LOT of laundry! Plus we have a well, so I can't go crazy and wash 16 loads in one day or we won't have any water left for anything else. :)

Anyway, great shot!

I'm every few days on mine. 5 in our house, too. But, we homeschool the youngest two. Lots of pjs in the wash! LOL Thanks for the reminder, gotta go switch loads!

Ha! I almost did a similar shot of the Washing Machine today! Great capture, and yes I washed all day today too!

You made a blah everyday sight very exciting! This is just awesome....love the angle you shot this at and the black and white tones!

Mel said...

Wow, good job making such a mundane task look appealing! We used to have one day, but after our third it became two. I swear laundry is the one thing that I have truly been tempted to hire a maid for!

Great shot of an everyday item that in 20 yrs time will be an "old-fashioned" memory. Nice to have it then.

Great angle! I love how you made such a normal object look interesting!

Like the B&W. We pretty much do a load a day around here. If I only had one day to do it - I don't think it would EVER get done!
