#158 After the dinner party


I invited 14 of the volunteers from school to dinner last night...making 16 of us. I wouldn't allow them to help with dishes so here's my dishes all clean and drip drying. It's a good thing I enjoy washing dishes. I have good memories as a kid washing dishes with Mom or with Grandmothers. Same with hanging clothes on the line. It's the memories that make the chores so pleasurable for me.

HOLY COW! That's a lot of dishes....for me, the memories of doing the dishes weren't so great, and because of that I hate doing it with a passion...Now I'm right there with you with hanging out the clothes! Love hanging them, but hate taking them down...wish I had a clothesline somedays....just love that smell!

Yep...definitely LOVE the smell of clothes dried on the line!! And I'm with you, I don't mind doing the dishes at all.....not complaining about all the help Ashley gives now-days in the kitchen, but still....I don't mind.
