DIY/HOME

In past Saturday Greetings, we talked about outside herb gardens. Today, I thought it might interesting to review houseplants. The first post will present ten houseplants for your bedroom. Since I noticed that several of the recommended houseplants might be toxic to our beloved pets, I am also providing links to posts identifying such plants.

KNITTING/LOOM KNITTING

Today, I have an introductory video about loom knitting. If you have hand problems and can no longer use a crochet hook on knitting needles, you might want to give loom knitting a try. Even if you aren’t having dexterity problems, you might be surprised how much fun loom knitting can be. Kristen Magnus of Good Knit Kisses created this introductory video.

I have written some blog posts about loom knitting. Be sure and check them out, too! I still wear the cowl that I made. Sadly, at the age of 18, Baxter, the Cat in the Hat, passed over the rainbow bridge.

If you are like me, you may be wondering if your routine laundry and cleaning habits are enough to protect your family and yourself. So Sew Easy has put together a list of Five Ways to Disinfect Clothes and Fight the Virus. I think this virus is going to be around a while longer.

This week’s Saturday Greetings 106 has two recipes.

The following recipe is definitely on my “Must-Try” list. Meal Plan Addict has created an Instant Pot Ginger Beef Stir Fry that is keto-friendly but should please all who like beef stir fry.
