I was home almost all day yesterday. I actually did a lot of organizing and cleaning. It felt good.
One of the things I did was wash clothes. My apartment has a new stacked washer and dryer. I like using them.
They do have a quirk though: when the load of laundry is finished in either the washer or dryer, it plays a tune – a looong tune. It’s almost comical how long it lasts.
I went on the internet to find out what it was, and was pleasantly surprised to find out it’s a song written by Franz Schubert called “The Trout”. We’re studying the Romantic Period in Music History class! Ha! I played these two videos for my students:
Also interesting is that this song appears in one of the Sherlock Holmes movies.
