Free Fall Desktop Wallpapers / Fall Screensavers

Use these free Fall desktop wallpapers / Fall screensavers to decorate your workspace.  If you can’t be outside, you can dream about it right?

A couple of years ago I compiled some of my favourite desktop wallpapers/screensavers into one easy, clickable blog post.

That post continues to see traffic today, so I figured I’d create a few more Fall inspired wallpapers so you can change out your dreary desktop for something crisp, cool and Autumn.

Click on any of the individual images to […]

How much does it cost to run a blog?

What costs/expenses should you expect when running your own blog.

This list is not at all comprehensive, and is reflective of the expenses on 100Things2Do.ca, but it will give you an idea of the costs involved in running your own blog.

If you are considering starting a blog, or are wondering if you are paying out too little or too much, this might help you in your research.  I’ll order them by “Necessary”, “Good-to-have”, “Optional” and “Extras”.

How much does it cost to […]

WORX – Making yard work easy

Is it Spring where you live?

Here in SW Ontario we went from Winter to Summer and have only just settled in to more seasonal temperatures which has me outside as much as possible.  Come July I’m sick of gardening and watering and weeding – but May/June I’m on it like a dirty shirt!  That’s why I contacted WORX to see about testing out their NEW GT Revolution 20V 4AH 12″ String Trimmer / Lawn Edger / Mini-mower.

We have […]

DIY Garden Gate – ever wonder what goes into a blog post?

I’m showcasing building plans for a gorgeous tongue-and-groove DIY garden gate over on JenWoodhouse.com, but I wanted to share with you the behind-the-scenes work that really goes into a blog post like this.

It’s more than just the build – WAAAAAAAAY more.

First, for me anyways, I need a project that I need/want to do.  No point building a headboard if you already have 5  in the house right?  My most recent “need” was a new garden gate.

Happy Birthday Madison!

Twelve years ago today, well yesterday actually, I was admitted to the hospital to be induced because the little lump in my tummy refused to move out.  She was stubborn even before she came into the world.  Somewhere around 16 hours, a fainting Hubby and a c-section later, Miss Madison blessed our lives.

Today I/we want to wish her the very best 12th birthday any little girl young lady could ever have:

To my beautiful baby girl that I accidentally dropped on […]

Tips for Bloggers: How to streamline your social media

*This is a sponsored post in that I received a discount on my Cinchshare membership and am part of their ambassador program.  I will tell you that I approached Cinchshare after having tried their service for a couple of months and being thrilled with the amount of time and work it has saved me.

100 Random Acts of Kindness

A dear friend reminded me that I haven’t posted my 100 Random Acts of Kindness list this year!

I’m so sorry that it slipped my mind!

Not to worry – there is still time to do a few pre-Holiday good deeds, and RAK’s really don’t have to end on Christmas day….

why not make it a challenge to do 100 Random Acts of Kindness in 2018?!

 

Here is my list, please print one for yourself and share on Facebook and Pinterest so that others […]

(Faux) Metal sign

Are you a Joanna Gaines fan?

I’m not really country or farmhouse chic – but there’s something about her style that appeals even to me.  Maybe it’s the warm and welcoming feel.  Maybe it’s the metal sign she hangs in every house.

Smooth lead-in right?  (not entirely cohesive, but I got the “metal sign” in there lol.)

Houseful of Handmade made a gorgeous hammered metal sign that looked so much like the real thing I had to give it a try myself…. […]

Grace & Frankie – Jane Fonda’s Wardrobe

Have you seen the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin?

Grace and Frankie

It is SO good!

This ‘older woman odd couple’ has Jane Fonda (Grace) as the uptight preppy and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) as the weed-smoking hippie.  The two are thrown together when their respective husbands come to terms with the fact that they are gay and in love with each other.

It’s about friendship and family and acceptance and denial – all in […]

Where did I go?

I’m sorry I was AWOL last week – I promise I wasn’t abandoning you for binge-watching Grace & Frankie (although I did do that) – last week was a bit crazy with “stuff to do”.

We went to Florida for March Break, so last week was all about ‘catch-up’ – the worst part of coming from vacation.

Swimming pool, Floridian 5 star, Florida

Yes, given that this was my vacay-view, I certainly won’t complain […]

Free Fall Screensavers / Fall Wallpapers

The blog post I did over the summer – the one where I gave links to a few sites that were giving away desktop wallpapers / screensaver – well, it is still getting traffic?!

Now that Fall has “officially” arrived, I thought maybe I’d try to create a few of my own for you to use.

For my  desktop wallpapers, I like a lot of white space to house my files.  I don’t want to cover over my daughter’s eyeball with blog images, or […]

Plants and Pets

Before bringing plants into your home, check to make sure they aren’t toxic to pets or children.  This “Pet-friendly plants” list is a great starting point.

I’d seen this listing of common house plants that are “Pet-friendly plants” and “Toxic plants for pets” at my Veterinarian’s office the past few times I’ve been.  Each time I thought “this would make a GREAT blog post!”  I’ve taken photos with my iPad and made a mental note to post something…

Then I build something […]

Cozi Family Calendar – the solution to extracurricular mayhem!

I want to start this by saying this is NOT a sponsored post.  This is an app I came across in an effort to find a family-friendly calendar that can be accessed by everyone in our household, no matter where or on what machine (desktop and mobile) they were using.

Do you have a constantly fluctuating calendar?  One where from moment to moment new dates, events and plans need to be added, removed or edited?

We have the large MotherWord Magnetic Wall Calendar […]

Bee Allergies

I’m allergic to bees.

Rather, I WAS allergic to yellowjackets, but am no more.

When I was in my 20’s I was stung several times after mowing over a yellow jacket nest that was hidden under the roots of  a tree.  (Did you know yellowjackets will build nests in the ground?  Neither did I until this incident.)

Anyways, I immediately broke out into large hives all over my arms and chest.  I’d been stung by the occasional bee as a child, but this […]

Nagging Projects…

Do you have a list of nagging projects?

Little things that need to get done, but you lack motivation to do, so they sit undone for months and months and possibly years?

I do.

For the most part I forget about them until I glance over and notice say…

Nagging projects - 1

that the satellite dishes that we attempted to use about 5 years ago (with very little success) are still hanging from the wall. […]
