I make stuff. ALL the time. Here’s an example of my ridiculous need to vent my creativity!!
We thought having a truck and plow would be easy, but it’s all our first time, EVERY time!
I have started gardening my 1800 square foot basement. This is easier said than done. Over the summer, when we were still financially flush, I ordered some LED grow lights and Happy Frog potting soil and a bunch of seeds, planning to plant them in the Spring.
Well, I couldn’t wait, and now there’s stuff growing in my basement. Strawberries, Mint, Calendula, Marigolds, Begonias, and now I’ve planted spinach, carrots and peppers and am awaiting their germination 🙂
I hung a canvas cloth 2/3 of the way into the basement (which has been likened by a friend to a bowling alley!) to help retain heat on that end, since it contains a huge old radiator, which is heated by our outdoor wood furnace.
In this video, I tell you about some of the things I make and show you my Etsy Store. Do you have one? Link it below. I’ll check it out, and probably tweet it!
When it first became apparent to me that our kids were with us to stay, I decided I was going to afford them every possible opportunity to teach them all I could so they could be the most awesome humans possible. Unfortunately, I lack knowledge in the music category. I decided it would be best if I learned how to play something. I fired up Amazon and looked around and settled on the harmonica. I knew a little bit about them, and knew the name Hohner, a German manufacturer. Much to my surprise, I found one for under $10. For a beginner instrument, it was all I needed. Although, I would also recommend a case. I have taped the box many times over, and finally got myself a little case. It pays to keep it clean. After all, you do put it in your mouth!
I then proceeded to watch YouTube videos. It certainly is harder than it looks to blow in one of those ten tiny holes! Watch me below 🙂 I really Do try, though! I’m hoping that in a year my playing will be much better and it will be fun to look back on this.
I decided to teach the kids how to play and I bought a DVD instructional by Hal Leonard to teach us all. It even comes with a Hohner harmonica. I highly recommend this little set. However, while it is good for me to learn, that doesn’t work for the kids. SO instead, I have been teaching them how the tablature works. I go to Harptabs.com and we pick songs and try them from there.
I never knew I would enjoy it as much as I do! At 48, any sense of accomplishment is fuel for more progress. I suggest that you give it a try. Just get the cheap little harmonica and pull up some Youtube vids. It could be fun 🙂
So I got complacent and learned my lesson:
So we fixed it with what we had.
