This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Iron Mountain

Can you guess how much I love to iron clothes? Let me give you some hints:

1. I did 16 items in a little less than 2 hours.
(I didn't even finish the pile)
2. My father-in- law saw my pile once and asked what it was.
3. I was ironing summer dresses in the winter.
4. I took out 5 items that have been outgrown by the kids or were maternity.
(I haven't been pregnant in over a year now!)
5. I was ironing my son's Hawaiian shirt and almost cried because I wanted to be on that little island with a surfboard.
6. As I set up the ironing board my kids asked what it was.

If you correctly guess the right answer I will iron your clothes the next time I iron mine.
(Don't hold your breath.)

I'm going to add a ticker to the top of the blog to see how many days go by until I iron again!!

My guess is that you love to iron about as much as I love to fold!! We should get together and have a laundry party! BTW: Can I add your blog to my blogroll?

An iron is a fancy door-stopper.
