Monday...wash day

Monday and another week begins. I'm glad I don't have to do my laundry with a tub and wash board. I have my mother's old wash board hanging in my laundry room and seeing it reminds me how fortunate I am.  Even if I don't much like my washer. ( Don't get me started!!)

I have spent three days coughing and feeling rather awful. I'm ready to feel better and get on with life. We have had a lot of rain and wind but mild temperatures. Needless to say I haven't been out walking but hopefully I'll feel up to it soon. I noticed some bulbs are starting to poke their heads out and it's time to get a load of nice "garden mix" soil and spread a couple of inches over  everything.

I hope we all have a great week ahead.      Granny Marigold


  1. Hi GM! I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering from a cough. Yuck! I hope you are well very soon!
    My dryer just buzzed. It's time to put the fuzzy sheets back on the bed.
    Rest and drink lots of tea in pretty teacups!

  2. I have an old washboard that has lots of "character". I agree, it wouldn't be fun to have to actually use it to do wash! I just bought a washing machine for $50. It's not pretty, but it seems to do the job. I don't like the feeling of not having one, even for a short time! Hope you feel better soon. Like Pom Pom said! :)
