Tuesday Turn About #153 Summer At Home

At this week’s party, we have some wonderful summertime decorating and entertaining ideas to share with you, along with a tasty treat! Tuesday Turn About #153 Summer At Home

As a mom and a fourth grade teacher myself, it’s hard to write a post that is meant to celebrate life at home when it has been such a heartbreaking week and my heart is feeling so heavy. I am turning to my faith and sending my love and prayers to the families, the community, and our country.

Let’s love the people in our lives.

Let’s make connections and nourish those relationships.

Let’s show patience, grace, and kindness.

Let’s work together for a safer and healthier nation for our children.

Let’s show the world that love wins.

Weekly Household Tip

Is your garden starting to become over run with weeds? Get rid of them without toxic chemicals.

A couple of years ago, I participated in a Pinterest Challenge and tried this DIY Homemade Weed and Poison Ivy Killer. By mixing 3 cups vinegar, 1/2 cup salt, and 1 tablespoon of Dawn dish detergent in a two gallon sprayer, I was able to get rid of weeds in my garden, along those pesky unwanted weeds that grow in the cracks between the sidewalk. Just mix, spray the weeds on a hot, dry day, and let it work.

Weekly Blogging Tip

Here is a quick reminder.

Don’t discourage yourself from posting about a certain topic, craft, or DIY, simply because another blogger (or 12) have written about it. Remember, your readers are YOUR readers. They may not have heard ANYTHING about the subject you want to share!

Just a little side note… Always remember to put your own “twist” on your post!
