wooden clothespins

"we should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting the laundry" --E. B. White

I tore that quote out of a real simple magazine, and put it up in my kitchen. I don't agree with it completely, but I really really like it.  we should do what gives us joy, but we should also bring joy to others, and serve, and a lot of other things.
we used to have a grape vine at the house I grew up in on milford church road.  but I remember liking to pick honeysuckle better than picking grapes.  and sorting laundry was NEVER my favorite.  however, the smell of fresh laundry dried on the line, or watching my mom hang it with wooden clothespins in her mouth in the big backyard...those memories definitely bring me joy.  
since I started cloth diapering charlotte we recently put up a small clothesline.  and it makes me happy every time I see it.  I love hanging her diapers up to dry in the sunshine.  we have had some beautiful weather and I've taken advantage of it as often as I can.  swinging, sliding, drying diapers, and just being barefoot in the yard bring me joy.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
