Thursday Thoughts: Woolzies Giveaway

Have you ever learned a new word, then noticed it in practically every conversation you had and article you read?  Recently I had the same experience, except instead of new vocabulary, I learned a new laundry method.

One of my facebook friends posted her surprise in a laundry care label which mentioned drying the item with tennis balls.  Then I read an article which also suggested tennis balls in the dryer, to fluff the clothing and speed up the drying time.  I considered purchasing tennis balls, but then I learned of an even better solution:  Woolzies.

Woolzies are simply balls of wool, which, when added to the dryer, help eliminate static and also decrease the time required in the dryer.  The Woolzies company recently sent me a box of Woolzies to try.  With the plumbing problems I've had--both we and the plumbers are really hoping that the project is finished today!--I haven't been able to do a thorough job of testing, but I have used the balls for two small, hand-washed loads.  Both loads dried quickly and without static cling.  I thought that perhaps the dryer would be especially noisy, but it really wasn't.

Even the packaging makes me smile.


I like the fact that Woolzies are a chemical-free alternative to fabric softener sheets, and I'm looking forward to using these all-natural wool balls for many loads to come.  (The information sheet sent with them says they will last for 1000 loads!)

The Woolzies company has generously offered to send one lucky reader a box of Woolzies.  To enter this giveaway, simply comment on this blog post.  I will use a random number generator to pick a winner next Wednesday, February 6th, at 9:00 p.m. Pacific time and will announce the winner on Thursday, February 7th.  Good luck!
Thanks for modern laundry conveniences.

  4. I've never heard of these! But the sound very good! Even with dryer sheets, there is so much static in our air right now, everything sticks together! lol Maybe this is the solution for that winter static frenzy!

  5. Our dryer takes twice as long to dry the clothes as our washer takes to wash them. Pick me! Pick me! Oh, I can't wait for warmer weather, when I can get my clothes back outside on the line where they belong.

  8. Sounds like a great alternative to dryer sheets. I don't like the smell and the ones which are scentless don't really do a very good job.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
