Perennial plants and flowers (LONG)

I have literally 10 garden beds; 14 if you count the ones around trees where I have planted shade plants. We moved into this house 4 summers ago and there was no landscaping —and no grass —so I have...

Netflix shows

My husband and I really like Atypical as well. And Ozark really drew us in, which I did not expect. We just started Locke and Key but I am intrigued so far.

Natural Method for Cleaning Oven

I had good success cleaning my oven with a baking soda and water paste. Buy a large bag of baking soda — like from Costco or Sams — and, in a bowl, add water a little at a time until you have a...

Gift Exchange for Women

I’m not familiar with a yankee swap. Are there any guidelines? Is the gift supposed to be holiday-themed?

If you can buy anything at all to exchange:
