Make Do {and Make Lovely} Monday

It is Monday and I am already thinking about Friday. Is that bad? It is because I am off Friday and I have BIG plans. Want to know what they are? I know you do!
 I have HUGE plans to putter around my house doing all sorts of domestic chores, like laundry.  Fingers crossed.  Exciting huh? Well, for this over committed gal it is. A little domestic respite is just what the doctor ordered. Hmmm... I wonder if I could get a laundry line hung up by then in the back yard? I think the Hennies would approve, don't you? Do you think it would motivate me to do laundry more often if I had a laundry line? Does anyone know how to keep your clothes from getting so stiff when they dry outside? 

I love my hens. They are a funny lovely trio and I haven't spent nearly enough time with them this summer. It has just been too darn hot. Slowly, but surely, the weather is cooling off a bit - at least in the mornings and the evenings, and I have been trying to pay them daily visits. A recent rash of rain storms made the previously pitiful grass grow 5 inches seemingly overnight. Even though it is out of control at least is is green. I don't know about you, but I will happily take a wildly overgrown green yard over a short, pathetic brown yard any day. I think the girls like it. they love to run through it, and peck at it and brush their feathers in it.

Speaking of Hennies. Look at this adorable tape dispenser I found online today. Too funny. Like those creamers that are cows. Though I am not sure what chickens have to with tape.

o that is what is lovely to me today, the hennies and the promise of a domestic day, perhaps a little laundry line in the mix.
What about you? What is lovely to you today?


  1. It was a grand day because I had a full line of laundry blowing in the wind - nothing like hanging clothes on the line!!
