A Thing of Beauty


Today I put away my laundry. I had been admiring it for several days before actually putting it away.

When Hubby took over most of the household duties, it became clear that there are things he believes must be done right and things he believes don't need to be done at all. Laundry is one of those things that must be done right. First each item is inspected for spots and sprayed with spot remover. Then if there's any cat hair on the item, and with two cats that's pretty much a forgone conclusion, he runs the lint roller over it. Once the item is washed and dried, he folds it. That's where he is truly an artist. Me? I just quickly make a couple of tucks and I'm done. Hubby places the item flat on the table then with each fold he creases the item flat with his hand. He even has a special tri-fold that he uses for his shirts so that they fit perfectly in his drawer. Those piles of clean laundry are a thing of beauty when he's done.

And he does it day after day and never complains.
