Is there anything more homey than the sight of laundry drying on the line? I don't think so. Ever since I cloth diapered my youngest, and laundered the diapers myself I've been in love with line-drying.

Seeing what had been dirty and wrinkled become so clean and sweet-smelling and new again, with nothing but the power of the sun is so deeply satisfying. It makes this least-favorite and never-ending household job almost enjoyable.

Oh, I forgot there is one thing more homey than seeing your sheets drying: Gathering the whole family together and snuggling into your fresh, clean sheets at the end of a long summer day.
