On September 15, 2018, I took my daughter and my two nephews to watch the Paniolo Parade in beautiful Kamuela, Hawaii. I usually make it a tradition to take my daughter to go and watch as it
Washing Day For Mistress Bunny
There were several nursery rhymes we all learned as children that talked about so many of our mothers' daily chores. They mostly placed washing as the Monday activity, rub-a-dub,rub-a-dub. And of course, Mama Animals also had chores, whether they were bunnies or kittens.
Aah, a washer and dryer. At least having a washing machine is convenient, even if you hang all your clothes outside.
When I was first looking at property here in Kona, I was surprised to see washers and dryers (W/D) outside of the house. Coming from an area with a definite four seasons, this was new to me. I drive by a house occasionally that has a washing machine and drying line under a tarp on the side of their house. Really practical, just not particularly pretty because it's on the street side of their house. I also have seen older homes with the W/D on a pallet in a protected area, very practical again.
Next step up in laundry areas is the W/D in the carport or garage. Houses on my cul-de-sac were built last year and most of my neighbors have them in the garage. I have to sort my laundry into piles on the floor so I chose the house style that uses up 60 sf of space for a laundry room. Here are some pictures from some local homes I saw recently. A carport laundry in a cute cozy home; and a up-scale home in a new development with an interior laundry with a granite folding table.
Thankfully, we don't wear that much here in Kona, sundresses for the gals, t-shirts and shorts for the guys. Some days, it's a bathing suit all day. Easy-peasy laundry care. If that sounds appealing to you, let me know. I'd love to discuss living in Paradise with you.
