Here's how my day is going: 

I'm about to go out and get my laundry. My washing machine is outside because I live in a travel trailer and couldn't get it to work in here. The travel trailer has been a great home for me and the little washing machine is a blessing. If there's one chore I don't like to do - it is going to the laundromat. The one thing I missed the most after the forest fire ate my home - it was my laundry setup - washer and dryer. 

Here in my travel trailer I have a drying rack set up. I dry most of my clothes on it. I hang some to dry on hangers. I wash my blankets too and lay them across the top of the rack, usually for about two days. I want to make sure they're good and dry before I put them in the closet to store them. This drying setup works well for me. 

The washing machine is small. It is something I bought in desperation off Amazon. It holds one blanket at a time... or about eight pieces of clothing (shirts/pants). Truly I'm so grateful for it. At first I thought I could use it next to my sink here inside the trailer. It fit, but I couldn't figure out how to connect the hose to the sink as there's a screen in the faucet stopping it from connecting. I didn't have the tool to pull out that screen. 

No matter - it is hooked up outside to a garden hose and that works fine. I'm very happy with that washing machine and use it almost every day. I like to keep on top of the laundry pile, for sure. And I love having clean blankets!
