Simple Pleasure

One of my very favorite activities is hanging laundry on the my clothesline.  It's even more wonderful when the only company I have while I'm doing it is my dog.  Scout understands the command "Let's go do laundry!"  With great enthusiasm she runs to the back door, slipping out underneath the basket I'm carrying.  Sometimes all I have to do is open the clothes washer and she shows up, all bright-eyed and lookin' to "help".  There's something about the subtle creak of the clothespins, the movement of fabric, the figuring out how to get the most hung on the line...for me it's the bliss of the process.  Sigh...
