IS THE NEW THING WORKING?

Last week Friday 9/7/18 (grandson’s birthday so I would remember) was just my first day at trying to switch out my coffee for green tea.  Here are the things that I have already noticed: I have been battling my first kid came home from school cold, and it’s been an ugly one. The worst part … Continue reading IS THE NEW THING WORKING?

THEY DID IT AGAIN – YEAH!

I love getting emails from other how-to-er’s (yes, I just created a new word, and a lot of you are not going to like it – get over it.) all over the world.  One of the first places that I connected with is https://thewhoot.com/.  They have brought me so many wonders over the last ten … Continue reading THEY DID IT AGAIN – YEAH!

TOO MUCH TRASH? This can help!

No, I am not talking about garbage in the normal sense.  I am talking about news trash: Politics (just awful over the last couple of years – and NO, I do not approve of our Commander and Chief). Natural disasters (floods, volcanos, hurricanes, fires, and even a huge iceberg). Violence (I swear there is at … Continue reading TOO MUCH TRASH? This can help!

FREE NOW – what a crock!

I get tons of emails on a daily basis. Granted it is all my fault as I have subscribed to most of them.  However, in my defense, I found that when I find an interesting post, go in, sign up and hope to receive more “interesting” posts; I get a load of garbage instead. I … Continue reading FREE NOW – what a crock!

How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?

I have taken a ton of classes over the years.  Many of the classes were just to gain extra knowledge in a specific area.  The funny thing about me is that I never received an actual degree for anything. To this day, I still feel that having that piece of paper hanging on a wall … Continue reading How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?

Top 5 Ways I Beat My Holiday Blues.

Just when you thought it was safe to start hanging all the decorations, it hits- The Holiday blues.  They get me every year about this time.  I always start out so excited going into Halloween.  I make most of my gifts all year long, then around Halloween I start wrapping them up.  After that, Thanksgiving … Continue reading Top 5 Ways I Beat My Holiday Blues.

Are Small Towns Just Big Families?

I was at our local Walmart the other day. It was about mid-morning, and I was in no rush. I got to the checkout aisles, and there was only one checker available (they are trying to push us into the automated ones – yuck!). I was just about ready to start unloading when a weathered … Continue reading Are Small Towns Just Big Families?

Will You Wear Purple Now?

I stopped making big bedspread size works years ago.  I would find the colors I liked, or that I thought a friend/loved one would like.  Then I would spend months crochet or knit it together.  When done, everyone seemed under-whelmed. Yes, they were grateful, but the darn thing had exhausted me from completing (or even … Continue reading Will You Wear Purple Now?

Do You Fear Weird Too?

I consider myself pretty weird.  Never really doing the normal things you would expect a child, never-the-less an adult, to do.  Perhaps that is one of the reasons my dad’s nickname for me was Dumb Shit.  (Remember back a few posts – this was not a bad thing, but a very loving way of telling … Continue reading Do You Fear Weird Too?
