Wash on Friday, Iron on Saturday

Washing and Ironing. Two words I usually Do Not Enjoy, especially when put together. I used to iron everything years ago, the way my mother taught me, and her mother before her…but then life got busy. Now, ironing is a reserved activity for something truly special: the mens’ suits, daughter’s dresses, and my above the normal clothes.
