How To Adjust Washing Machine Water Levels – One of my biggest frustrations of late has been my new front load washing machine. I recently bought a whole new set, shiny and pretty to look at, with all of its futuristic buttons that light up and make Close Encounters of the Third Kind music. I guess they have to add all that new fandagled stuff to keep you from paying attention to the fact that you will no longer be getting clean laundry. Can I please have my 1990s machine back, now?
When I see suggestions out there to hide presents in my underwear drawer, I have to laugh. People, underwear is no deterrent for a determined child! I guess I feel like that because, I was one of those kids that went on a scavenger hunt during the holidays to locate my presents. Actually, there were several of us, and not only did we search for the gifts, but if we found them we would very carefully open them. Then rewrap them to hide the evidence.

Blogging can be an amazing and wonderful career. It can also be a great way to moonlight for a bit of extra monthly cash. Several years ago, I made the leap into the world of blogging, and I have been loving every minute of it! However, I didn’t go into it thinking that is was going to be a temporary thing. Nor did I look at it as a hobby. I didn’t know how much I would earn as a blogger, but I was determined to give it a go and to stick with it for at least four years. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a beginner’s guide to starting a blog.
Recently, I was searching through Pinterest looking for some good pins to add to my flooring board. (BTW – I highly recommend following me). 😉 What I noticed were so very many articles on cleaning wood floors that were offering some very wrong advice. Now, I don’t claim to be a professional flooring installer, but I know my way around wood, and I have done my fair share of flooring installs and repairs. So, I just wanted to offer my two cents on how to care for wood floors, and what you should not do.
Knowing how to frame walls with doorways is a skill that can open up a wealth of options for the DIYer. In a world where the open concept rules, and walls are shunned, focus on how to construct a proper wall isn’t at the top of list for most home improvement gurus. Yet, this knowledge can be used to create new storage spaces, to define areas, or to change a floor plan’s layout.
