Sarah View More What have you been watching? I find myself binge watching old shows that I never caught during their first run, but it has also been great to find some new original programming on Netflix and Prime. Just recently signed up for Hulu as well, but so far have not watched anything. Please suggest what my next series should be! Show or movie suggestions Name Email Submit Thanks for submitting! Read Along! Several years ago I began the Reading Challenge hosted by Goodreads and sometimes I surprised myself with how many books I had read by December. Some years I didn't do as well...especially last year. I am hoping that 2021 allows me a little extra time to settle down with a good book, especially at bedtime. Currently I am reading two career related books for groups I am involved in at work. I expect to be joining a third book club at the office soon, so I am excited to start their selection, The Savvy Ally. For leisure books, I do enjoy a good suspense thriller. I also like books set in quaint towns, almost like a Hallmark movie on paper, but I tend to get tired of reading too many romance novels in a row. Occasionally I will grab a celebrity biography that catches my eye. Please send along any suggestions you have for books to add to my shelves.

- How to Crack an Egg
I love finding little tips and tricks that make things easier around the house or in my crafting. Even things that seem so simple and obvious, sometimes don't always occur to me, so when I try something new that has helped me, I want to share it. I'm hoping to post a "Tuesday Tip" each week and maybe some of these will be new and helpful to you, as well. Today's is a really simple change, but it has made things a lot easier for me in the kitchen. I grew up watching my mom crack eggs with ease against the rim of her mixing bowl, then I would watch as she tried to fish out any small pieces of shell that may have slid in the mix. It always seemed inevitable (and frustrating), until I recently saw this tip. The old way: Next time you crack an egg, don't use the rim, but instead tap the egg against the inside of the bowl. Just a little bit of a quick tap on the flat part of the bowl below the rim will crack it open, but rarely send the broken pieces into the mix with the egg. Look no shell!!! An additional benefit - there won't be any egg running down the outside of the bowl, like would sometimes happen when cracking it on the rim. If some pieces do end up in the bowl, the other trick I learned is to use a larger piece of the shell to fish it out. Somehow it just works! Hopefully this tip helps someone out there! If it does, drop a comment down below.
- Soak Less, Fold More!
My husband and I are great at doing the wash. Notice I didn't say we are great at doing the laundry, because that would imply getting through the whole process of washing and drying in a fairly reasonable time. Unfortunately in our house, gathering up the dirty laundry, carrying it down to the basement, sorting it into whites, darks, and colors, then starting the washer is all we can muster. We have a tendency to go upstairs then forget about it for days. DAYS. When we do finally remember, we usually have to run the load a second time so they don't stink of mildew. We have even triple washed. Yes, we are that lazy. We also use a lot of Downey Unstoppables. Laundry was much easier for me when I lived in my condo because the units were in a hall closet right near the bedroom. It was hard to ignore when you walked by it several times a day. My husband always wonders why I miss that small condo when we now have much more room in our house, but the convenience of the washer and dryer is high on the list. Even when we do remember to switch the wet laundry over to the dryer, we still bring the full baskets upstairs and stare at them for several more days until someone caves and folds them. I am lucky enough that it is usually my husband that gives in before me. There are two reasons for this - first, I usually leave the baskets in the den where he spends most of his time, so they are hard for him to ignore. Second, he is the only one that leaves the house on a daily basis for work, so his need for clean clothing is a little more pressing than for my son and I. My pandemic work-from-home outfits are definitely more forgiving when it comes to the need to be clean. Now, once he has it all folded, it will stay like this on the den table for hours until I acknowledge his good deed. Of course I appreciate it, but do I really have to say thank you for doing something that clearly benefits him as well? I digress....... The other night I went down to the basement for something in the pantry and I glanced over to the laundry corner. The washer cover was closed, which meant there were wet clothes just waiting to be rescued. As much as I wanted to ignore it, deep down I knew I had no choice but to swap them over. As I pulled the clothes out that were sitting in the dryer (who knows how long they had been in there) I found myself using the closed washing machine as a table and I folded each piece as I removed it. I was able to quickly get the dryer emptied and the entire load folded and ready to be put away before it even got upstairs. Brilliant! What an efficient way to complete a task that we monumentally hate! Of course, when I got upstairs I brought the folded pile into the den and smugly told my husband "see, I can fold too, and I don't even need to take up an entire room or get kudos for it!" (Yes, I recognize the irony of that statement). Next I found myself humming a tune from Hamilton, but with some new lyrics, Soak Less, Fold More! Of course I had to turn it into a sign design. I think I may need to create a whole collection dedicated to laundry in my store. I think I could have a lot of fun with these This may not help us remember to check the washing machine more often, but at least it will encourage us to be more efficient when we do. Now, I just need something to prod us to match up that overflowing basket of socks...... (If you want to see any of these signs produced for JoatmonCreations.com, leave a comment)
- Link to the Old Blog
As I make my way over to this new website and blog platform, I'm going through a lot of old site pages to link them to the new ones (not an easy task when you have over 600 products). I came across my old blog host, so I figured I'd post a link to that so I won't lose some of my favorites, especially the post I made after my son's 5th birthday party with the Indiana Jones theme. I definitely wasn't a regular poster, and it definitely seems like a brain-dump of sorts, but it is interesting to see my old ramblings. Not much has changed over the years, I suppose. Now I think it may be time to take a break and revisit some of those old cookie recipes I had posted in there...... Anyone in the mood for Chocolate Peppermint Cookies?
