Well Butter My Biscuits
This is another reason why I hang our clothes outside to dry--the south winds are nearly always blowing. Not only does line drying cuts down on the electric bill by $150+ month but, the winds keep the clothes from becoming stiff. I use vinegar (in a Downy ball) because our well water may have bacteria along with fabric softener (another Downy ball) each load.
The vinegar does not leave a smell and neutralizes any ICK stuff and odors.
CAN YOU SEE THEM?
Today, the house-leveling men came back out to recheck their work and made adjustments. I am happy, one more check then we can start shopping for new siding and windows. LOL We are locking this big ole barn down tight with energy efficient products. I knew when January's electric bill was over $400; we were going to be in for a long ride paying the San Patricio Co-op. OUCH Can you image our bill in June, July, August and September? I would have to do something drastic like dance nekkid in the pale moonlight to bring on the rain since the temp is nearing the 90s almost every day now.
