The Lighter Side
I got out a new roll of toilet paper the other day and saw that it was noticeably narrower than what has always been the standard size. What the heck?
Ah, fall in Colorado! Sunny days with cool, crisp air, blue skies and colorful foliage. Unfortunately we never know how long this weather will last. Thus now is the time to winterize your home and yard.
Recently I received an email from a reader named Randy from Loveland. He noted that since becoming petless he has started talking to imaginary friends from his childhood. He said he wasn’t sure what this says about him. I’m sure his imaginary friends are probably more...
“How hard can buying a couch be?” you ask. Well, you can really screw it up. I suggest trying to buy a piece you actually like. Thus, consider:
Most all gardens are wonderful, but some hold a special place in your heart. For my husband and I, this was our sons’ pee garden.
Have you felt a wee bit of socialization reentry stress? Answer these questions to assess your status.
How can it be that an organized person such as myself spends so much time combing our house, trying to remember where I have set things?
As relationships become increasingly complex, more than ever people are turning to advice columns for answers.
One home trend on the downswing is the popularity of wall signs with inspirational or saucy quotes. You know, those signs that say things like: “Live every day like it’s your last,” or “It’s wine-thirty somewhere!” Thank goodness!
Many of us thought when the pandemic (mostly) ended that things would just snap back to normal. Unfortunately, this is not exactly the case buying home goods.
Something strange is going on here this summer. Besides our foliage initially growing like it was on steroids, there are more critters in our neighborhood.
While pondering our new home appraisal, I started wondering if we need to slick up our house to match its new value.
The Lighter Side: Home inspections – They’re not as scary as you think (but they can find weird issues)
If there’s one thing that strikes fear in the hearts of homebuyers and sellers alike, it’s the home inspection.
So many things in life should make you happy but don’t. Then there are the unexpected pleasures that surprise you. For me, one of these is our electrical box panel labeling which is both functional and attractive.
When you’re a kid growing up, you don’t think too much about how your grandparents live
Staying at home for so long has changed how we live. We’ve become rather used to our new home-related conveniences. Why should we give them up now?
But as much as we know that all creatures are doing their part in nature, we just can’t help hating some or at the very least being freaked out by them. People seem to fall into some very distinct camps in terms of who gives them the willies.
If there’s one thing quarantining at home has made abundantly clear, it’s that my husband and I have way too much stuff. This got me thinking: How do we all get so much stuff in our homes?
Thanks to vaccines, soon we’ll once again be socializing in person without masks with fellow homo sapiens. Thus it’s time to take stock of what bodily mayhem has occurred during the last year of our pandemic isolation.
Recently I was FaceTiming with my son Nick who was showing me his new apartment. When he got to his desk area he said, “Ignore my cable management. I haven’t done that yet.” What? Cable management? This is a thing? And indeed, it is a thing.
Life transitions: Sometimes you see them coming, sometimes you don’t. The last time our youngest son Nick, 25, stayed with us, he volunteered to clean the house.
Along with spring, the start of the big home selling season is here. Thus I’d like to give homeowners some advice to help sell their properties quickly while maximizing profit.
With this end in sight I have a new found enthusiasm to finish up home projects, some of which I began when we initially quarantined.
As the world and relationships become increasingly complex, more than ever people are turning to advice columns for answers.
