dill and fennel are able to hybridize with each other so I'm not surprised they look similar. (I couldn't get the quote button to work)

The other: the lint never gets filtered out or blown away, nor the dog and cat hair.
I used to run them 10 minutes without heat, but in my current homeless state I have been doing laundry here and there, and am finding that many new and modern dryers don’t even HAVE an ‘air only’ setting!
Anyone have any suggestions how to clear the lint from time to time? The best I can figure so far is when I take dry clothes off the line is to shake them, if possible producing a snap, as in shaking a rug…

Get your clothes on for the day-pajamas may seem nice but it's not good for your sense of time.
Keep a schedule-eat on time, do your morning chores/routine.
Go to bed early+get up early. Keep your circadian rhythms consistent.
Craft projects+handy projects are fun but be very careful not to overdo it, I have a bad habit of working on yarn projects all day and then my carpal tunnel acts up for a couple days.
VERY IMPORTANT to make yourself get outside at least once a day!!!
Get projects done indoors that you don't ant to in the summer, like home repair.
Go visit friends!
