Welcome to Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot 01.26.224

Welcome to another great weekend, and what better way to enjoy it in full than with a visit to Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot! What makes this link-up special is that we encourage you to link up not only your current posts and great ideas, but also the great stuff in your archives! 

Yes, that's right, older posts are not only encouraged, but appreciated!

Wait, did I hear that correctly?

Huh?, did you say, older posts are welcome too? Yep, we sure did. Lets give those older (and STILL great!) posts some recognition and respect. Because let's be honest, last month's or even last year's creative work is still great work, simply buried in the we encourage you bring them out and share it right here! 

At each Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot, we look forward to seeing all your great projects, ideas, recipes, and any family friendly blog posts you wish to share.

Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot is currently shared over three FOUR blogs, right here with Melynda@ Scratch Made Food! & DIY Homemade Household along with Marsha@ Marsha in the Middle and Lisa@ Boondock Ramblings a well as Sue@ Women Living Well After 50. 

We are continuing to look for for additional Co-Hosts to share in the creativity and fun! If you think this would be a good fit for you and you like having fun while being creative, drop one of us an email and someone will get back with you!

I invite you to follow our hosts on their individual blogs or any of the social media pages you visit, so easy to keep up to date with everything happening!

What's up next, on our property? Because are you ever really done?...

We have been socked in by rain! So much rain that Lake Livingston had to be opened to relieve the high water pressure. Lake Livingston is a huge lake, but with the current rain, it had risen over 2 feet, yikes. 

So much rain, that the first coat of paint on our shop doors, began to wash off...

So much rain there was little to no outside time. 

With that I cooked a pot of beans and we worked on a seed saving bank. In past years leftover seeds would be put into a sandwich bag and "put away safely" only for us to find them later and they had gathered moisture or worse, they had been put away so safely they were years old and no longer viable...

This system should help...

We are hoping the weather folks are right and the rain will stop when predicted!

If you would like to know why we are building a tiny house homesite here in East Texas, you can read about it here...

In case you missed them, here are two of our favorite recipes that we enjoy  from Scratch Made Food & DIY Homemade Household

  1. We've had so much rain this week on top of all our snow last week that there is a lot of localized flooding around here too. Thankfully it looks like today's rain has finally stopped. :)

    1. Hi Joanne, our rain as well, we have some flooding of our rivers into the pasture land surrounding them, which is a better flood than homes, but gosh the animals now have no place to roam until the water drains. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.
