Sun, Rain, Sun, Rain Very Hard, Repeat

Monday, August 4th, 2008

That is pretty much the story of the last several days around here. It’s making planning a day out rather difficult.

Pants or shorts? Sandals or boots? Wash hair or why even bother?

Since it’s naptime and dinner is a salad and therefore practically already made, I am sitting on the couch with my feet up (not a bon-bon in sight, what the hell?) searching for WordPress themes for this site. It is in serious need of an overhaul. You may have noticed this for yourself, and if so, I say thank you for being polite enough to not say anything about it. Trust me, I know already.

Turns out there are 76 bajillion WP themes out there. Who knew?

If anyone has a favorite theme or an idea for this site, feel free to share. I’m a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing.

I think I’ll just go wash up this new lemon-yellow melmac tea set I picked up for the shop the other day. Time to get it photographed and listed. That, I think I can handle.

Hope the sun is shining where you are.

Knotty Clothes

Saturday, August 2nd, 2008

Does anyone else ever have this experience? You go to fold a basket of freshly washed and dried laundry, only to find this:

And this:

That’s four different articles of clothing thoroughly intertwined in one of the most intricate knots I’ve ever had the pleasure of undoing. And I had already removed two other shirts from the knot before I took the picture.

What I want to know is, does this happen to everyone else? Is there some housewife laundry trick that I don’t know about that would save me from spending 30 minutes unwrapping my clean and dry clothes before I can even fold them?

Anyone have any ideas?


As a side note, my king-size sheets always come out of the dryer in a twisted ball, so if this is some laundry-related mistake that I’m making, at least I’m making it consistently.
