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 […]

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.

Y’all know how much I love a Klutz book, right?  See HERE and HERE if you’ve forgotten. Klutz was our go-to publisher of fun-time kids books in the summer or whenever we needed something fun to do.  When I find a book with a title and tagline this great, I gotta buy it: Kids Shenanigans: […]

Everyone Needs a Straw

Glass Straw Dispenser
