While this is a great TEMPORARY fix, we don't recommend leaving a fence like this indefinitely!
Here's a general guideline, if the stake has had time to weather (turn gray) then it's time to just fix the fence.
New special feature or problem? That's for you to decide!
Make sure you check on your sprinklers at least once a month to make sure no heads have busted or pipes are leaking or water is spraying where it shouldn't. While a system on a timer is nice, you really should NOT "set it and forget it"!!
When it's this hot outside, we like to use the cooling towels soaked in ice water to help combat the heat. What's something you do to stay cool outside?
When I was a teacher we learned how to use a file folder for many different things, only some of which involved filing papers. 😆
One of those was as a wall pocket. Sure you can buy pre-made ones that are fancier, but what’s the fun in that! This will get the job done for practically free and I get to feel industrious at the same time. Woohoo!
1. Cut the bottom along the middle folds about 1” from each side.
2. Fold back the edge on the front flap on each side.
3. Fold that edge again, accordion style.
4. Staple front flap in place creating a pocket
5. Staple to wall or bulletin board as needed.
It’s hot outside, which means we are drinking lots of water. We were going through around 4 bottles of water a day, so we switched to using refillable water bottles. Now we can stay hydrated and be just a little better to the environment too!
We don't run across them often, but here is a dog poop box in a yard! Kinda like a compost pile, but for dogs!
Not quite sure how we feel about these, what do you think?
Comment if it's a great idea, you think it's genius or if it's terrible, you would never use something so ridiculous!
As promised yesterday, here's a great lesson in repairing a garden hose. Enjoy!
After a long winter of being put away, you might get out your hose this summer only to discover some small issues. If your hose looks like this, don't worry and don't throw it away! We will show you how to fix a hose (without using duct tape) in tomorrow's video!
Similar to Facebook, only useful
This is a great place to find interesting pictures, quick little notes, and funny memes. Just like posts you would expect to find on social media.

Or, just if you don't want to get sucked into the never-ending time-sucking vacuum of the Book of Face. Whichever.
Of course, you can get updates by following us on Facebook too. If you are "in" to that sort of thing.
