Shadow Shot Sunday

This week's shadow comes from our basement....something that is lovely to have....but full of dread. Can you guess??
I've seen a lot of it today....and will see more of it tomorrow {and I guarantee there will be a load of work ahead!}

It's our laundry chute!

The other day we heard this joke....so we thought we'd pass it along today ~ it seems to fit well!

One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?" "It depends," I replied. "What does it say on your shirt?"
He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma."

{Come on....you saw it coming didn't ya?!!}


Visit more great shadows on Hey Harriet this weekend....you'll have Loads of Fun!!

The dreaded laundry!
It never ends does it. I always thought a chute would be nice if for no other reason than get the laundry out of sight.

Loved the joke! :)

You're full of the jokes tonight! lol:D I hadn't a clue what it was...even with the "load" hint. I'm a little slow on the uptake:}

Now if that was my laundry chute you wouldn't see it for the laundry!!! I love the colours of your chute, white and green and of course the shadows, at least its nice to look at even if we don't like the work associated with it, lol!! Happy Sunday girls :0)

I also love your name: "Summer Kitchen Girls".

Hey Harriet said...

Cool shot! I would never have guessed it was a laundry chute. Laudry chutes are not very common over here.

I liked your joke btw. It made me chuckle :)

Bwahahahahaha! I can't let my husband do the wash because "he doesn't know how" to take out stains! Love the shadows! :)

maryt/theteach said...

Oh and yes, your blog header "rocks." Mimosa is the color and the Pantone company calls it the color for 2009. I've chosen that color for my blog and I'll go back to it when Valentine's Day is over. I LOVE that color! :)

Raven said...

Neat shot and I laughed at the joke. Laughing is always good.

PJ said...

Here's another good hubby joke:
Men are like dogs, they have an irrational fear of vacuum cleaners.
This reminds me of the laundry chute in one of my childhood homes, I thought it was awesome. I love the photo. Happy SSS!

Alissa Nicolau said...

Your shadow shot if very nice. However, your laundry tale is perfect.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Ha! We have one of those! I got such a kick out of it when I first moved in; never thought to photograph it, though. Very original!

Sandra Ree said...

All husbands use the same life handbook don't they? lol And how cool is it to have a laundry chute! :)

Twinkle Star Art said...

Love the colours. We don't have a laundry chute, sometimes I just throw our laundry out the back window of our house. We moved our laundry to the shed in our backyard. I'm actually sitting in our old laundry now, it's my art studio ;)

Ms. Tee said...

How funny! I'll have to remember that one for sure! Hope you have a wonderful week~ :)

Dianne said...

I love that joke!

I used to carry it down not I throw it down the stairs

Gina said...
