the rise and fall

We have enjoyed the simplicity of farm life so far.  I won’t say it’s been easy.  It’s just not complicated.  We have central AC for the first time in 7 years.  I love it.  It will be more costly though.  I think after working in the hot dry heat all day it’s worth keeping.  I decided not to give myself the option of a dryer to save money.  I know if I have it I’ll use it more than I want, and since we were going to have to buy an electric one (our old one is gas) I figured I could live with nothing but a clothesline.

Nick (we’ll call him future farmer) did a great job of buying, digging, cementing, leveling me a real nice line.  I couldn’t wait to use it…but I did.  Two whole days just to make sure the cement cured well.

Yesterday, I finally put it to use.

It didn’t go as I expected.

I guess the land that’s soft and easy to farm is too loose for a small hole with lots of weight.  At least the clothes were dry by the time it fell.  Here’s to round two.
