I’d like to take just a minute and introduce you to The Idea Room’s latest sponsor…Home Talk.
Home Talk is a FREE online home improvement community that can answer all your home improvement questions.
This is a great resource for helping you with your home improvement, home remodeling, or home repair questions and concerns. A place you can go to get real answers from real people and from Home improvement and design professionals. Home talk can also be used to get questions you may have about gardening and lawn care. It is like having a group of homecare professionals right on hand to help you along with all your projects. You can also upload your own photos and share your tips and advice for certain home projects that you have had great success with to help others who may want to accomplish something similar.
Here is an example of a question posted by a Home Talk user and some of the answers they got in response to their question.
This question was particularly interesting to me as I have been Bermuda grass in my own yard. Now I know how to solve the problem.
So go ahead and check out Home Talk. It is a great resource. I am so glad to have been introduced to Home Talk and look forward to using it frequently. What are you waiting for? It’s free and super user friendly!
We just got home last night from a family reunion over the Fourth of July weekend. We spent the weekend with my husband’s family and their my kids cousins back where my husband grew up…a small town in California.
We had so much fun playing together and were able to do a lot of fun things. There are 19 cousins and they all enjoy being together.
We spent Saturday (which was also my birthday ) up at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort (where my husband grew up snow skiing). We hiked to see Devils’ Postpile which is an amazing rock formation. Then we continued on hiking another 2.5 miles to see Rainbow Falls. The kids did so great on the hike and it was so worth it to see the Falls at the end. That is a lot of water coming over those falls. There were also quite a few snow drifts that we were able to enjoy a friendly snowball fight with.
We also spent a day at a Pond by my husband’s childhood home (in which his mom still lives in). We swam and jumped into the pond on the rope swing.
My Mother-In-Law is an excellent cook and made us some yummy food and breakfasts…a couple of which I plan to share with you in a few days!
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!
