I went to the laundry mat today. I used the largest washer for the whites and lights and the small one for the darks. I brought the clothes home to put in my own dryer. I hope my clothes don’t reek of fragrances of other peoples detergents. I am very sensitive to fragrance. I had a headache after thanksgiving from candles and plugins. Also, my lady friends from church wear perfume and my eyes burn and water when I’m near them. As far as fragrances go, I have to live in a bubble.

The wet clothes were so heavy, a lady helped carry my basket to the car. I used several trips to carry them in the house. I dried the dark clothes first because that is the smallest load. I divide the whites and lights into two groups. One group has the king size sheets and mattress pad that I put over the quilt for Danny in case he has dirty feet or he gets sick. That group will be last because I have to stop the dryer every so often to untangle the sheets. They get into a big ball and don’t dry properly.

I have a few flowers still blooming near the house; Chrysanthemums and gerbera daisies. I’ll take some photos.

I surely loved the beautiful nativity scenes in your church. I have a very nice set too that I cherish. And, of all things, I found it in a garage sale years ago. I have always wondered why someone would have gotten rid of this beautiful nativity set? We never know the whys and so on with some of the choices people make. But, I guess we can be fortunate that we can all make decisions in our country that wouldn't be possible in other lands. The Nativity set made me think about that. I'm thinking in some countries getting rid of something that was considered sacred to them could cause them to be exiled or tortured. We're so fotunate to be free to make choices. Let's hope things stay that way.

Going to the laundromat is not fun after having our washer and dryers in our homes. Hope you don't have to go there too long. Ruth
