Our dryer finally went out on us. We've been expecting it to for the last few months. It got a loud banging noise and it wouldn't turn off by itself. I had to set the timer or just keep track. That didn't always work. When this all started happening, we considered buying a new one then, but at that time money was a little tight and I thought we could just wait. It dried the clothing very nicely.
But Sunday it went out and money is more plentiful right now. The weather is beautiful and I also have friends. The jean loads I dried outside. This is another use of my backyard. I don't have a clothesline. With the help of capable sons, my new dryer should be all ready to go this evening. And it's propane, not electric. I hear they are much faster.
This is one of two hydrangea bushes I own. The other has no flowers. This one has 2.
It is in a shady spot and this is only it's second summer. Maybe that's the problem. But the flowers are gorgeous.
