Not much to share today. My hubby got hurt yesterday and is out of work until Monday at the very earliest. We’ll see what happens on Monday. Since he’s home, he’s on parenting duty while I work on Etsy & Ebay listings (something that is harder than you might think with a super helpful 4 year old). He didn’t do it AT work, so this is time off without pay, so trying to make up the difference from what will be missing from his paycheck.

We cannot catch a break,I swear.

Just wanted to share these tips today for drying clothes without an electric dryer or when you have the power shut off. This is one of those things people ask for tips on quite often. I think Mom with a Prep covers it well. We didn’t have a dryer for years and last year at tax return time got the old one repaired. In the summer, drying was easy. In the winter (NY) , not so much… and having a big family probably made it trickier. Pretty much if there was a place that could have a rope strung, it became drying space. The thick cloth diapers were hardest to dry inside but I found that the standard wooden drying racks worked best if I placed them really close to the heater and flipped them occasionally.

How to Dry Your Clothes Without Power - Mom with a PREP //  Whether you are existing in a post-disaster situation with no power or you are choosing to rely less on the grid that provides power for your home, finding ways to effectively dry your clothes, in no matter what amount of space that you have, can be daunting if the only option you've seen is the large telephone-like limbers that take up the entire backyard of someone's home.

How To Dry Your Clothes Without Power

Ironically, it’s raining like crazy here today and I just threw a load of laundry in the dryer.
There’s flooding in parts around us. I peeked out into the garden and some parts are underwater. Sigh.

Nick Drake is always my rainy day music…
