finding the silver lining

This morning it occurred to be that although I can be a worrier, I'm probably not the closet pessimist I always thought I was.
I mean, would a true pessimist look at these skies......


...... and hang these clothes?..........


I think not.

P.S. It hasn't rained yet either!

No, that's truly impressive optimism. Well done!

Thank God, I'm not the only one who does that...funnily enough it works, too. The washing always gets dry...

Elaine said...

... and anyway, if it does rain, you get your clothes given another rinse free.

What do they say? A pessimist is just an optimist with experience.

Isabelle said...

(and I love your blog too.)

My verification word is "poring" - trust this didn't turn out to be what happened with the weather...

Stomper Girl said...

I do that too, like Elaine says, a rainwater rinse is quite nice for the clothes!

Jellyhead,
The optimist believes that if it rains the clothes will be softer! ;-)

Hahahaha - I do that too. Works for me too.

My word verification is nortsp - absolutely no meaning, but I wanted to follow the trend :)

Now when I do that, it rains! Lol.
Glad you got your laundry dry :)

I know you're busy, Jelly, but when you get a moment, I've left something for you on my blog.

Heidi said...

You are cute! And the clothes got done!

Hey, Jelly... check by my blog in comments where you just left a comment, if you have a minute.

i would have hung them out too - surely it wouldn't rain for a whole week!!

Alice said...

So that's where I've been going wrong...I've been hanging out the washing, and sure enough, it hasn't rained. I'm such a slow learner.


I hope you haven't suffered any damage from all the rain you've had.

You are a true optimist, Jelly. 'Glass half full', 'there must be a pony', and all that :)
