Many years ago a Kentucky grandmother gave a new bride the following recipe for washing clothes....
Build fire in backyard to heat kettle of rain water. Set tubs so smoke wont blow in eyes if wind is blowing. Shave one whole cake of lye soap in boiling water. Sort things, make 3 piles. 1 pile white, 1 pile colored, 1 pile work britches and rags. To make starch, stir flour in cool water to smooth, then thin down with boiling water. Take white things, rub dirty spots on board, scrub hard, and then boil. Rub colored, don't boil, just rinse and starch. Take things out of kettle with broomstick handle, then rinse, and starch. Hang old rags on fence. Spread tea towels on grass. Pour rinse water in flower bed. Scrub porch with hot soapy water. Turn tubs upside down. Go put on clean dress, smooth hair with hair combs. Brew cup of tea, sit and rock a spell and count your blessings.
Hang this above your Automatic Washing Machine, and when things look bleak, read it again -- and count YOUR blessings!
If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you.
11 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!
