I bought a clothesline this past weekend. That's one goal met for the summer. I think I better splurge for the water filter ASAP. For some reason, having clean water is foremost on my mind, and I am not prepared in that respect! KI (Potassium Iodide) also comes to the forefront of my mind......don't have that yet, either. I probably should move that to the front burner, too.
