Taking a Break till August!

Hello everyone! I am really having a hard time juggling all my responsibilities and blogging duties! With all the kids here everyday and with the heat it's has become very hard for me. Most of you all know I have Fibromyalgia and Hashimoto disease. Daily life is hard period! But the heat really slows me down.

Wow Us Wednesday Link Party

Is it really Tuesday night?! Another week has gone by?! Wow I can't seem to catch up, no lazy summer for me, too much to do! Yesterday was my oldest sons birthday and I made him a favorite from scratch meal and his favorite from scratch cake. Invited the family over. It took me all day to cook and bake while watching the kids. I was really beat by bedtime. How are you doing this summer? Lots to do or can you relax and slow down? Happy Independence Day!

Hacked and Hijacked

Dear readers, I wanted to let you know that recently my blog and email were tampered with....or hacked. I'm not sure exactly what happened but one day I tried to log into my blog and it was locked by Google for suspicious activity. I have had tons of robot hits on several post lately too, maybe they are connected. Anyway, I experienced the panic that I have heard others describe when you can no longer enter and manage your blog! It is scary, we bloggers invest a lot of time and effort into our blogs. 

Soon I was able to log in though thanks to having a cell phone on file that Google could text a code to and I thought all was fine again. However, I have been receiving emails from friends saying my email has been hijacked and you all are receiving emails from me that I DID NOT SEND!  I am very sorry for that.  If you have received an email that is a one liner asking you to check out a link it is a hijacked email! I hope soon all will be back to normal.

My suggestion on the other side of this problem? When we are told to use new passwords on our accounts occasionally...on any online accounts...it's a really good idea. It makes it much harder for hackers or web bots to find a way in. I will be doing it every month or so from now on. A lot of extra work but so worth it to keep info safe.

Thanks for reading.

Bibs from Drop Cloth & Fabric Scraps

Super easy and fun bibs for from drop cloth and fabric scraps! A great way to use up scraps and a fun way to use drop cloths too. Things need not cost a lot and free is always good. Like I always say, use what you already have. You can do that to make these bibs. See the tutorial over Hill House Homestead.
