Maison garage: old parking as tiny home in Bordeaux, France

Looking at small houses, I may have to share a home with my mother soon, and since I have kids and we both need space I'm researching ways to share expenses but still have our independence.

Spotted: Mason Jar Planters

Spotted: Mason Jar Planters:

mason jar planter

How precious are these mason jar planters from Not Just a Housewife? She mounted the jars onto reclaimed wood using hose clamps, then filled them up with potting soil and planted herbs in a sunny hallway! In her tutorial, she says she used new mason jars, but I bet that this would work with eclectic glassware from the thrift store, too! Or, you can start saving jars as you use them up in the kitchen.

The only change I'd make to the design is to fill the bottom 1/4 to 1/3 of the way with rocks, to give the plants some drainage. After drowning a perfectly healthy oregano plant this summer, I've learned my lesson!

Weight Watchers

So, I have been doing Weight Watchers for the past four weeks. I have lost 7 pounds so far. This past week I fell off the wagon and although I didn't completely abandon my new eating habits I indulged in more sweets than I should have. The sweets are a big problem for me, I love sugar. I also didn't go the YMCA at all last week. I was just too tired and busy. I really feel awful about not going but I did alot of yard work and housework over the weekend which kind of makes up for missing the gym, right?

Well anyway, this week I am definitely back on my weight loss/lifestyle plan. I want to make sure I do everything I can to live a full life and be here for my children and their children (when they get old enough to have them) for many years to come. So wish me luck, I'm going in :)
