This may sound weird, but I love my clothesline. It gives me an excuse to go outside and enjoy the sunshine and birdsong while still feeling productive. And sometimes the five (yes five) little kids who live next door come to the fence and visit with me. Other times I just get to eavesdrop on them playing at the swing set. And then there's all that other good stuff about saving money, helping the planet, and the fresh smell of clothes from the clothesline. Yup, I love my clothesline.
