not with sticks and string, or SMART revistied


in which our plucky heroine sets self a challenge to get entirely caught up on my SMART goals this month (SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely) My goal for the year is sixty each of make something, fix something and discard something, or approximately five each per month, which is reasonable... Rather got lost on the "timely" aspect in the last several months, which means now making ten things, fixing twelve things and discarding sixteen grocery sacks to either Goodwill recycling or trash over the month of May... can she do it, yes she can! Just watch me!!

Yesterday, as well as the usual work, there was a productive trip to the hardware store with the intention of replacing former collapesed clothesline from last year with something slightly more sturdy. Waited until after sunset for putting together an equally strange contraption...

I attached these closet rod shelf brackets to the side yard fenceposts with dual hose clamps, with the intention that they would serve far better as clothesline brackets than the previous years kludgy makeshift held in place with dowels and scrap wood lashed together...

the new clothesline holds all but the largest of the laundry quite successfully...
