Organizing a playroom can be a daunting task for any parent. We love our children and we want them to have all the things that make them happy. However, in the same case as the rest of your house, if you bring new things in, each item needs to be assigned a new home or you have instant clutter. When it comes to toys, we don’t usually think about where it will live, once you bring it into your home. Read the rest of this entry
Nobody wants to think about it, but we have to!!!
For the past couple of weeks, me and my husband both experienced having our aging parents in the hospital. It is hard for us to see our parents getting older. They are the people who raised us and taught us to become responsible, loving & independent human beings.
They are our children’s grandparents, and our grandchildren’s great grandparents and are an important and vital part of all of our lives.
My husband’s parents are older than mine, so we assumed that we would be confronted with difficult issues concerning their health sooner than mine.
Even though my parents are younger, we still had a scare with my dad this past week. He stayed in the hospital for a few days and came home feeling great. Whew!
The day my dad came home from the hospital, we got a call telling us that my husband’s mom fell and had been rushed to the ER. Her fall caused her to break her pelvis bone and she will be in a rehab facility for weeks or months. Which leaves us with my father-in-law to look after while he is home alone.
I told you all of this for a reason!
These turn of events caused my husband and I to look inward and think of our own children if this had happened to us. As a result, we spent the weekend creating a binder that organized copies of all our personal information into categories.
I am not talking about having your will done. But you should. I am talking about organizing necessary information that our
We do not want our children to scramble and search for things, so we made it easy for them. children would need if we were in an accident that lands us both in the hospital at the same time. Especially if it is for an extended period of time or ultimately worse.
What did we put in our binder? Things our children may not know!…….. Read the rest of this entry
Granite is a strong, beautiful stone created from volcanic magma. Granite is known to be an excellent building stone. It ranges in color, and provides a beautiful organic surface especially practical for kitchen counter tops.
Granite counter tops are a gorgeous addition to any home. Each piece is a natural work of art and is as unique as our fingertips. Because granite is available in so many colors, homeowners have many options to choose from. Granite is also very durable and resists heat. This makes it great for kneading dough, making roll-out cookies, and other tasks that need a cool counter top for best results.
Your granite counter top requires regular maintenance. Besides just cleaning, you’ll need to make sure the granite is sealed periodically. Stains can be difficult to remove, but not impossible. Counter tops may also be susceptible to cracking.

Myia got a new sewing machine for her 10th birthday. This video is one week later. She has wanted to learn for a long time and I have been working with her for a while, but now that she has her own machine, she is taking off. I am so proud of her. Read the rest of this entry
I found this video at HGTV, that really inspired me to freshen up a few things around my house for spring. I think you will enjoy this video as much as I did and maybe have a WOW moment like I did.
There really is no limit to what we can do with the things we already have when we are able to look outside of the box and repaint or repurpose our decor.
