Dear June

  • If you have a clothesline, listen up! If not, then invest in one!!! Did you know that line drying your clothes not only saves quite a bit of energy costs in your utility bill, but it also prolongs the life of the fabrics in your clothing and linens? AND sunshine is a wonderful, natural whitener and brightener! To keep clothes soft when line drying, simply add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle... the scent dissipates in the air, and your laundry is naturally brightened and disinfected as well as softer!

    Well, I'm all for sneaking quiikces and having late night or early morning romps but I like swinging from the rafters sex. :) That sort of stuff we can't do with her here. Right now the issue is more with him being over-worked and over-stressed. Tonight he asked why I was being so nice (I think we still have some old junk to move past because I'm not really ever mean to him anymore). I told him that I'm trying to do more to make things more comfortable for him at home in hopes of reducing some of his stress so that I might have a better chance at 'getting some' more often. lol.

    I posted an earelir thread about purchasing a juicer, and growing my own garden in the spring. Many people who responded, said that it would be best to grow organic fruits and veggies. I would love to do this, but I dont think I know how. I assumed that if I planted seeds in my yard, and took care of them properly, than they would grow into organic produce. I assume this because I wont use chemicals or pesticides. Am I right, or is there something special needed to grow organic foods?
