Re-jiggering!

It was a GORGEOUS day today! Warm, sunny, and overall perfect. It's the kind of weather that makes me want to wash all my laundry and hang it outside, so it can capture the scent of the sun and wind.

I have strange pleasures.

But sadly, I couldn't hang my laundry. I loaned out my portable clothesline to a friend whose dryer had broken, and it got tossed by a heavy wind, bending one of the tripod base legs. (If you can't click through the link, it looks like a standard umbrella style clothesline, but on a tripod base. Very handy for apartment dwellers, people who dry indoors, or people with small yards.)

I was briefly upset, but then I realized that the clothesline part was still fine - I just needed a way to mount it. I mentioned it to my husband, and today I came home to this treat on our back deck!

Just because PART of something is broken doesn't mean it's totally worthless. In fact, this is better now, because it takes up much less of our back deck than it did when it still had a tripod, and I can use my handy IKEA FROST rack in the middle of the deck, allowing me to dry up to 3 loads of laundry at a time! (the clothesline takes about two)
