Sock on the Line

To make our household more eco-friendly, George started hanging all our clothes on the line instead of using the dryer. For a time, I resisted. I told him I would wash the laundry, but he would have to hang it. I caved in, though. It seems like a small effort for a large payoff. And here, in Arizona, the laundry dries much faster outside than in the dryer, though I don't particularly like how stiff the clothes are.
It's always so funny to see the clothes hanging outside. I often wonder what the neighbors think!

My Birthday Horoscope

Freewill Astrology by Rob Brezney

CANCER (June 21-July 22): To celebrate your ramble through the most wildly independent phase of your astrological cycle, I'm offering you three inspirational quotes. The first is from poet e.e. cummings: "To be nobody but yourself in a world that is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle that any human being can fight." Your second shot of motivation is from Clarissa Pinkola Estes: "If you have ever been called defiant, incorrigible, forward, cunning, insurgent, unruly, or rebellious, you're on the right track. If you have never been called these things, there is yet time." Lastly, here's a Hindu proverb: "There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self."
