Weekend Traffic Jam Reboot 03.29.2024

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: Let us introduce ourselves! We all offer a different perspective on life and hope you enjoy not only this link-up, but all that you find here!

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 still 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, making it easy to keep up to date with every happening! And there are many...

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

Yikes, still dealing with the Internet outage from St Paddy's Day...but trust me we have been so busy, I have so much to share, and can't wait to have some internet available to see me through! But here are a couple of photos of what has been been up to! Around here we cook with what we have, and we DIY with what we have as well!

My husband found this thick walled plastic barrel on the property, along with a few ceramic sewer tiles. I had the idea to make a Garden Tool Barrel. 
All it took was a few holes in the bottom of the barrel for water to exit, then add enough ceramic sewer tiles for weight in the bottom and to keep the handles of the tools from tangling and we have a convenient garden tool storage barrel. 
Put a few shower curtain hooks around the edge, and you have a handy place for hand tools, garden gloves and a pair of scissors. 

Easiest boundary marker ever! Perfect for gardens or the edge of a drive way. One cinder block and one pool noodle bent in half and placed in each of the open spaces in the cinder block. Currently this is the edge of our garden space so that when we have the tractor nearby, we know exactly where the garden begins. 

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

From time to time I write about it all, good, bad, otherwise, or from years ago, if you have any interest you could take a gander here

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