Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot 02.23.2024

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: 
along with Marsha@ Marsha in the Middle 
and Lisa@ Boondock Ramblings as well as Sue@ Women Living Well After 50. 

We would love to have 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 (come on, who doesn't!) 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 water into the Utility Kitchen! We picked up the last of the needed plumbing supplies yesterday. And took a couple not needed, back. The dryer is already installed, as power went in before water. 

I love having my dryer on a pedestal! Less twisting and bending to get the clothes up and out of the washer and into the dryer! We had just enough scrap wood around and my hubby built this one for me.

The utility sink is ready, to be placed against the wall, the only task to complete first is plumbing to take water OUT of the building! This sink while a great buy, was a bit too low to be used for dishes. So a pedestal was built for the sink as well. 

The drains, one  for the washer and one for the sink are on today's schedule! Our next need? A tankless propane water heater. And during my investigation of which one to consider I learned that those puppies are expensive, so we shall see if that plan needs to be amended. If only there wasn't a budget to follow...

We have also been purchasing berries for our garden, so far we have 4 large blueberry bushes, three raspberry canes, and two blackberry canes. We have also planted strawberries in towers, they are beginning to come up! 

We will be needing to use purchased soil mix for our planters as we build garden beds using a Hugekkultur method for raised garden beds using composting materials and all the leaves that have fallen. 

This weekend? We are hoping to start building a goat pen. Goats are main source of brush clearing here in East Texas, plus they are pretty cute!

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

  2. What a great idea to put your dryer up on a pedestal; I bet that helps a lot. Good luck finding a water heater that works for you.

    1. Joanne, it sure eliminates some of the bend, lift, rise, twist, bend and release actions. And as I age like fine wine, my back appreciates it! Thanks for joining us at WTJR!
