Connecting, Friday’s Fun Read is simply comprised of a myriad of topics, as varied as a conversation with friends. Because over the last 7 years of blogging, I have a solid base of readers that I value. So today, it’s just a conversation with my friends.
So Friday’s Fun Read, Connecting is just a simple blog. One that gets you thinking about all the conversation, tips & experiences you & your friends have shared over the years (and the places you’ve shared them at!)
Tips come in many categories. From gardening, decorating, DIY projects, organizing, and exercise to cooking, clothes, hair products, food products, favorite book, a shortcut, a new store, a fashion find, packing ideas, vacation spots, good restaurants, tv shows, sports, and movies. As you can see this list can go on and on.
Over the years, I’m sure you have shared things that make your life a little easier with your friends as I have with mine. It’s that give and take that makes a friendship work. And sometimes you can give more but then again, sometimes you can’t. Through it all, your friends understand that too as we’re all navigating the ebb and flow of life.
Conversations can bounce around so fast but that’s the fun of it all! What paint color did you use in your Family Room? Did you know about that new exercise studio that just opened? Or, that Hair Salon that specializes in color? Have you been to the local Farmer’s Market, they have the best vegetables. We just stumbled on a fabulous bagel place. Have you tried the new Thai restaurant? Your nails always look great, where do you go? What kind of plant is that? Great yoga mat, where did you find it?
Of course, we can Bing (or whatever browser) it, but there is more weight when a friend says, yeah that place has the best burgers!
So here are a few fun tips from my friends …
Use white vinegar to kill weeds. And you know, it really works. So much so that my thistle weeds did not return the following year.
Throw your eggshells into the garden to keep deer away. Another tip that actually works. We have a little bit of a deer issue in our backyard. They have eaten whatever they can. It’s a tough one. But just last week I tried the eggshells and it worked so far!
Organize your closet all the time. Keep a bag in your closet when you try something on and it doesn’t fit, has a stain or you just don’t like it, immediately put it in the bag. When it is full, take a second look and donate what you are ready to.
Reduce stress at the airport by being organized. Save time, check-in online. Have your documents easily accessible and keep your carry on organized.
Packing tip, pack an extension cord. Because it makes it easier to use your hairdryer in front of a mirror.
There are so many more tips, conversations & information sharing. But these are just a few off the top of my head today. However, more importantly, when we begin sharing we begin developing friendships. And friendships are key for all of us. So treasure them, always.
