Trail to Go Biking

Aside from a quiet location of our property, we are also pleased to know that there is a trail located just right in front of our property stretching as 20 miles East and West. That is a lot of land to go riding a bicycle in any direction you want to go.

I have done 4.5 miles bike ride so far and plan on going longer rides as days to come. I ride my bike in the mornings while the temperatures are cool but cool enough to make me comfortable at the same time basking in the sun to make sweat.

It is with great pleasure using this public trail, I love it. It enables me to enjoy the outdoors at the same time getting my leg exercise. Such a great way to admire the wooded and shaded part of this little town too. Just let yourself loose on foot or on the bike and be thankful for God’s wonderful gift of life.

Windows and Doors Installation

It is winter time and not very many people know that in order to save some money on energy bills is to have new windows and doors installed. Doors like hampton doors are great to keep the cold out. We are one of those that are still using the antiquated windows and doors of our house. I get closed to the windows or the door especially the back door, I could feel the cold air coming in because of the huge gap between the door and the door jam. Definitely needs sealing or a new door, that is.

Finding the Right Dust Ruffle for Your Child’s Bed

Whether your children sleep in a twin size beds, full size beds or toddler beds, dust ruffles can serve both aesthetic and practical functions in the bedroom. It certainly can add a more unified look to a bedding ensemble, of course, but it also helps prevents dust from collecting under your child’s bed. A dust ruffle can neatly conceal the clutter that tends to accumulate under the bed, as well as those items that have been neatly packed for storage under the bed.

Many bedding ensembles offer coordinating dust ruffles, either as part of the same package as the ensemble or as an accessory that you can choose to purchase. Many bedding manufacturers offer bedskirts in classic patterns and trendy solid colors. You or your child can select one that matches one of the colors in the comforter or the pillowcases. Make sure to check the package to confirm that it is the proper size for your child’s bed; a dust ruffle designed for a twin bed would be far too large for toddler sized beds. Measure the distance between the bottom of the mattress and the floor, and make sure that the “drop” on the dust ruffle is no longer than this distance.

Another thing to consider when shopping for a new dust ruffle for your child’s bedroom is the pleating. A finely-gathered and pleated dust ruffle, especially in a pink or pastel hue, may look more suitable in a feminine bedroom. The smoother look of a tailored bedskirt can suit either a girl’s or boy’s room. Selecting from the wide variety of dust ruffles available does not need to be a chore; just make sure that the one you choose is the right size for the bed and a color that coordinates with the bedding.

Garden Focal Point

We went out of town last weekend and I loved it even though the long drive is so tiring. We went to this place where there was a big fountain in front of the building. It was so nice and birds would come to the fountain and drink water from it. Having waterfall fountains in front of our garden makes it look beautiful , fountains truly soothe us and they are the focal point of the garden . I only see very few houses in this neighborhood have fountains in their yard or garden, I wonder why?

Cushions For Our Dining Chairs

I am tired of picking up those thick padding of our chairs in the kitchen. Both of our girls keep taking them off the chair and every time I go to the kitchen, I see the cushions and padding on the floor so I have to do the same thing over and over again. We are in a cushion for chair real bad. I need at least five of them soon. I may ask to the husband if I can shop cushions online so our dining chairs will a little better than what they are right now.

Upgrade To Energy Efficient Lighting

Months ago we switched energy company from Atmos to Reliant for one reason, we chose the company that is a bit cheaper. Also we had our roof done using a white metal material as white is known to effectively reflect heat, we had our attic foamed and completely replaced our A/C system into a new one. Hopefully we will be able to see the effect of these major jobs done in our house in order to save money for our energy bill. We expect those jobs will pay us back in ten years time.

Aside from making improvements to our house that could positively impact our bill, we are also slowly changing all of our lighting into energy efficient lighting. In some rooms or areas of the house there are still incandescent and old technology lighting which we don’t use. Anyhow, LED products are such a great idea to be using in residential and commercial areas for energy efficiency purposes.

Satin Feels Good On The Skin

It gets real hot here in Texas during Summer so a real nice Satin bed sheets is a must during these long hot months in order to be comfortable when sleeping in the bed. We don’t have a satin bedding but I am looking forward to buying a set for us to use next year. I saw a great deal online one time but California King size was not available.

I guess I know now which specific online store to go and buy us a satin flat sheet. This store offers an array of colors to match any bedroom d├ęcor: white, black, red, champagne, pink, gold, jewel blue, lavender, grape, burgundy, sage, pewter, brown.

Log Bedroom Furniture

There is something about with woods/logs that make people want them in their house like this log bedroom furniture shown below. It is so refreshing and it is like bringing the outdoor in. Log furniture are best used in cabins so if you have a cabin up in the mountain, you might consider changing all your old furniture into logs. Very pretty, neat and most of all unique. If I had a house in the country, I definitely would want to use this kind of furniture because I find it just gorgeous!

Standing Coat Rack

I know someday we will need to buy a standing coat rack. Although we have a closet right at the hallway by the front door but it is a bit full already. It is just a small closet where we put all our thick coats so we can have something to wear and easily grab on during cold winter days. An extra standing coat rack will be useful when there are visitors coming over to our house so they can have a decent place to hang their coats.
