Earlier this year I planned to remodel our bathroom but found that it wasn’t in our budget. Soon after I did realize that a “reskinning” or refresh was affordable and it would get us most of what the gut job would have provided.
I love podcasts. You probably love podcasts. The problem is finding time to listen to them. I’ve started listening to some when I mow the lawn but the sound of the mower drowns out the sound of the podcast. I won’t wear my nice noise-canceling headphones out in the yard where they would probably get dirty, sweaty, and damaged. What to do?
After watching this video by Nighthawk in Light, I realized that I had to try making giant bubbles. They are beautiful to look at, easy enough for anyone to try and difficult enough to master, that folks both young and old will be entertained making and watching them for much longer than you’d first believe.
Due to technical difficulty, I have not been able to upload a cool slow motion video of these giant bubbles. I’m working on it and I’ll do a post once I get it on my YouTube channel to let you know it is ready to watch.
Building a spice rack had taunted me from my to do list for many years but not anymore. We cook most of the food we eat and have accumulated many spices over the years. It always takes more time than it should to find the ones you want. Let’s eliminate some frustration from our lives!
I have been hurriedly completing some exterior maintenance on my house and yard before it gets insanely hot and buggy. One of the last things to do was to replace the crawlspace cover that I made out of pressure treated plywood when we first moved in to the house 15+ years ago. It was in rough shape. One corner had rotted away and I had to put two bricks there to close up that hole.
My ears perked up when I found out that our good friends oldest boy is such a Harry Potter fan that they are going to both HP theme parks in Orlando for his birthday. I thought I’d have just enough time to construct a wand for him before they left.
