There are many recipes, patterns, and a multitude of other things to make our homes cosy and welcoming. This is my cosy corner of good things to eat and other "creature comforts"; things just to make our families, and ourselves, feel good.
A great activity to keep kids outside and the lawn watered this time of year. I bought a bit of rubber tubing from Peavy Mart and cut it into 3 pieces. Scared up 3 jugs out of recycle. Cut a tiny hole to fit the hose near the bottom of each jug and figured out how to stack them so the hoses fed one into the other. My friction fit abilities are not stellar so there was a certain amount of leaking going on but it still works.
Provides kids with a fun way to get wet and discover the joy of water fountains.
Another benefit of this is that I only have to store the hoses. The jugs go back into recycle until next time.
