Duvet Schmuvet, No More!

Taking the Mystery out of a Duvet Cover

Confession Time: I’ve wanted a generously large goose down comforter for years, but have failed to fulfill that wonderfully fluffy dream because I’m scared of duvet covers.  Yep, scared.  They are totally bewildering to me.  I’ve looked at them with no understanding. Yes,  I see you’re a cover that protects my goose downy investment.  Yes, […]

Take a Hike

Matador Pocket Blanket

Are you a hiker?  A hitchhiker?!  DON’T DO THAT! I mean more like a person who hikes and then likes to sit and rest a bit as you enjoy the scenery. How about taking walks with the kiddos?  Do you like to do that? Impromptu picnic planner?  A park day with your pup?  Sitting by […]

Do Yardwork Like a Boss

Help to lighten Your Yardwork Load

OMT! loves yardwork.  No really, I’m not joshing.  I love to get my hands dirty and wack at things, plant things, build things and use chipping hammers to dig out things (like an old concrete foundation).

Cover Their Tracks!

Pet Car Seat Cover

Got a dog that likes tagging along for car rides?  Heck, got messy kiddos who snack, track dirt from sports, or snack some more, leaving stains behind on the seats?  Have I got a solution for you, that is if you’re like me and are always looking for ways to clean less, live more! ~ […]

Inexpensive DIY Outdoor Patio Drop Cloth Curtains

Drop it like it’s hot, like it’s hot, oh so hot! This has been the year of backyard DIY projects (HERE and HERE) one of which I have wanted to do for a few years: Drop Cloth Curtains! A few years back, we had a neighbor whom I nicknamed Cletus.  His creep factor from 1-10: […]

It’s How I Roll

Core Stability Ball Uses

If you’ve read here for any length of time, you know that I have an ongoing tweaky back issue that I’m working hard to resolve. I use my foam roller, I do strengthening work, and because I sit for a large part of every day, I have started using my stability ball as a chair […]

Is Your Steak Done?

SteakChamp is *THE* Champ

Father’s Day seems like yesterday and while I offered a few fun thangs for dear old dad, I hadn’t come across this WHAT-WHAT?! gadget yet, so I’m telling you about it now. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links.

U.S. Flag Primer

U.S. Flag Flying Primer

I have written on this subject before, but I thought it important enough to offer a flag primer once again.  Kinda like getting a yearly checkup with your doc; it’s always nice to be educated on the important stuff. Coincidentally, I’ve seen a growing number of confused facebook posts regarding the proper/improper way to fly […]

Wadda Ya Know…You *CAN* Take it With You!

What Grandma Drinks I always feel like a bit of a lush when I write that title.  (need to catch up on what grandma drinks?  check these out: WGD, WGD, WGD, WGD,and WGD) I’M NOT!  And neither are you.  We just understand the soothing effect a well-timed libation can have upon one’s soul. Yet, what […]
