About Me

Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Wash Day at the cabin

Just a quick post to show about the day I did laundry at the cabin. I am at the public library in Casey County checking email and doing this post. Hopefully I'll be coming into town once a week to check email and blog a bit. Without further ado - here is the first wash day at the cabin.

My bathtub doubled as a washtub for doing the wash.
And the agitator is my trusty sponge mop.
My boiling water bath canning pots served as my rinse tubs.
The load was too big to do all of the rinsing in one tub.
Here I've finished rinsing half of the load and the other
is waiting to be rinsed.

Here's the rinsed load with my basket of wooden clothes pin.
It's ready for hanging on the line.

And - TA-DA - here is the clean laundry hanging on the clothesline
that I had to put up that day - it was about 5 p.m. when I finally got
the laundry hung out to dry, and it stayed out overnight
and all the next day to dry.

Not a very exciting post today, and I don't have a lot of extra time to spruce it up. Thanks so much to all of you for following this blog, and leaving comments - they are much appreciated. I'm gonna try and be more organized to get postings done on the day I come to town. I'm still unpacking, and also getting ready for the Winter. I've been able to get some wood delivered, and will get two or three more loads delivered by the end of the month.

Blessings to you all - have a wonderful week. We're gonna have great weather so I can get some things done outside, as soon as I get over this cold. Thanks for stopping by and reading this post today. Have a blessed Monday. Take care, from Casey Co.
