The party is going on! It’s Tuesday Turn About #88 Spring Begins!

TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #88 Spring Begins

If you missed last week’s party, it was all about February Fun!

This week past week has been a whirlwind… I may have taken on a wee bit more than I should have.

My mom is doing quite well, and she is back at her assisted living community. Upon settling her back in, we were happy to find out that minimal social activities had started again. This is a good thing!

The weekend was very busy with some family ‘happenings’, and I just discovered that I can’t find my external hard drive. This is not good, as I have all my photos on the drive. Seriously… 3 years for photos! I *do* have it backed up, but I’m going to need to see when the last back-up happened. Prayers would be so appreciated!

UPDATE: Hard drive has been found! Praise God! My IT son-in-law says it’s time for another option. I think it’s his nice way of saying I’m getting old! LOL! 😉

Spring Begins

With all the ‘weather happenings’ across the country and the world, it seems many of us are ready for spring. So this week, I’m sharing some spring fun, and maybe a tip or two!

And remember…

But first, some tips!

This post may contain affiliate links, at no additional cost to you. For more information, see my complete disclosure HERE.

Weekly Household Tip

When baking for gift-giving, I use disposable paper baking pans/trays. They are cute, easy to use, and make just the right size serving for a little gift! (Think hostess, teacher, or employee holiday gift.) You can pick them up at Target, too!

Weekly Blogging Tip

Have you thought about checking for broken links on your site?

My son (who is an SEO manager) suggests using Screaming Frog to check and fix broken links on your blog. Links that work make for happy readers and happy Google! Use it once a month or so to keep your site moving smoothly.
