Cleaning our Cistern at the Farm

Springtime is that time of year where you get some of those bigger cleaning jobs done after the long winter.  Every year I put together a list of things that need to be done on the family farm, and between me and my siblings, we work to get everything done.  Working together as a team …

Prepping for Tonight’s Party

It’s late.  It is hard to believe that it is coming up on 6 PM already and the party guests will be here in a little more than an hour.  There is still a lot of work to be done in the kitchen before they arrive, and I’m starting to panic. I always panic at …

Making Moving a Pleasant Experience

I have never really enjoyed all of the work that goes into moving.  Packing everything that is in your home, cleaning and taking care of the logistics required to move all of your possessions from one place to another is a lot of work.  While moving my own stuff was the only thing that I …

The Perfect Fashion Accessory for your Strapless Bra

One of my favorite outfits that my girlfriend wears would have to be her little black dress with a strapless bra.  She looks like princess, or a movie-star. She is the most beautiful woman that I have ever seen. But one of the problems that she has had with my favorite outfit has been her …

Looking Forward to a Perfect Summer

Summer is my favorite season of the year and I enjoy spending my days out on a boat fishing.  At least that is what I see in my head when I close my eyes.  A warm summer day out on the water is really what I would call heaven on Earth. The last couple of …

Starting a Condo Renovation Project

The theme of this year is getting small tasks (or “projects” done).  I have a list of things that I put together at the start of the year and I am working down the list as quickly as possible.  My jobs are prioritized based on their importance (for example, painting my home is further down …

An Early Melt

Winter used to be my favorite season of the year.  I love snow on the ground, the relief from allergies the time of year provides and just how quiet things get when the temperature is below freezing.  As a child I spent a lot of my time outside playing in the snow, and winter for …

An Open House Day

For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed going to open houses.  For me, it is an opportunity to see many home designs and get a feel for the good and the bad as it comes to houses.  Each and every one of them brings some good and bad things to the table, …
