Day 235

Not my idea of a delightful laundry day!



And this, because it's just so incredibly moving and inspirational!

Can you believe our ancestors had to do that? We have it good!

It's a good thing they didn't have hobbies back then, the laundry would have never gotten done. ;)

I would def be a nudist if I had to do laundry like that for a family of 9. Heck No. I even hate using my machines that do absolutely everything for you.

Yikes! We had a wringer washer at our summer cottage, but at least it was a washing machine, and not the boards. I do see the wringer in the back, though. I can't believe all those women had to do just to get through a day.
