Laundromat Ho!

I thought a project would be good for me on Veteran's Day, so I bundled up the slipcovers for the couch and the chase lounger, as well as all our heavy bedding, and trundled everything to the laundromat where I could use the much larger front loaders. There, I read a good book while things washed and dried.

The slipcovers had to air dry, unfortunately. It was a sunny day, so I hung them outside. The day turned cloudy and I checked the weather report which did not mention rain. "I'll just watch for the first drop of rain" I told the cats, as I put in a movie to watch. Unfortunately, I fell asleep and when I woke up, it was raining. I hurried out to bring in the covers and set them up in various places to dry. I think the rain more than undid whatever drying happened outside.

Always good to have a bit of a project. I am wondering, did everything smell better becasue of the rain blessing?

It would have smelled better if I had been able to dry them entirely outside, but because I didn't, they just smelled normal. I've made a mental note to wash and dry the slipcovers on a very hot day. Then they can be done in one day instead of four.
