Spread the love

This week, we have some great projects at Tuesday Turn About #103 Summer Fun DIYs.


June is here, and we said ‘hello’ at last week’s party!

Welcome to the party! I hope you all are doing well!

As I’m writing this post (Monday night), I’m also preparing in my mind for tomorrow’s (today’s) ‘surprise’ surgery appointment with my mom. She is having some complications with healing from the last surgery, so there may be an emergency surgery tomorrow. Prayers are appreciated, as there are many layers to this situation. Thank you so much!

This past week, so many projects caught my eye, so I decided to share a few summer DIYs that you might enjoy putting together, too!

There are three posts being shared here at MWA, but remember…

Now, let’s take a look at our weekly tips, shall we?

Weekly Household Tip

Do you love watermelon? It’s in my top-three fave fruits! And watermelon season is upon us!

Before you cut your watermelon, be sure to wash the outside rind with soap and water and make sure to rinse thoroughly. This will remove any dirt and/or bacteria from the rind before you prepare it.

Weekly Blog Tip

We’ve talked about getting a secured site certificate before. However, I just read this little ‘nugget’ in a Facebook Group from a seasoned and very successful blogger:

Do you have a secured site? If not, it’s a MUST! I have been to two huge sites this week (that aren’t secured) and now that Google has rolled out site warnings, it’s more imperative than ever so that people reach your site. If you’re not sure, log out and then Google your site in a private or incognito window.

This is just another reason why Tuesday Turn About only features those sites that are secured. We all want to keep our sites safe… for ourselves and, foremost, for our readers!

If you don’t know how to secure your site, contact your site provider (I.e., Siteground, Bluehost, BigScoots, etc.)

Now, let’s party!

Summer Beach Day Scene

This sweet little beach scene from My Home of All Seasons is just adorable. It reminds me of days-gone-by, and I love how Denise uses lanterns in unique and unexpected ways!

    1. Isn’t the lantern cute? So happy to have your here, Jenna… love that watercolor you shared this week!

  1. Thanks, Julie, for hosting once again! Thank heavens my site is secure and has been for a couple of years. I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that now with all the new analytics Google has rolled out and is now penalizing many for. My views have sure gone down the past 3 months but it is from Pinterest due to their new analytics. Now I have to go back and change all my old Pinterest pics and make them new again. It is tough to stay on top of things! It is heating up here in Arizona pretty quickly, but this weekend we are staying in the low 100s. Next week is supposed to get to 115! Yikes! Hope you have a nice week!

    1. Oh no! I just saw that your mom was having emergency surgery tomorrow! How scary! She will certainly be in my prayers! I hope all goes well with her and pray she feels better soon. Please keep us all posted!
      Many hugs to both of you,

      1. She DID have the surgery, and it has been a little more difficult than the last one. They actually did some minor plastic surgery, as well… her face is quite swollen and red. We are praying that this will subside soon and she will feel ‘normal’. Thank you for praying!

    2. Yes… I agree with all you are saying, and I am experiencing the same issues with Pinterest (I think most of us are). And, it’s heating-up here too!

  2. Hope things go well if the surgery goes through – and praying!
    There’s an easy way to check if your site is secure. If you have a little lock at the beginning of your URL, click on it. It will tell you site info and if you are certified secure.
    So many changes from Google, so thanks for keeping all of us informed.

  3. Sending prayers for your mom, and for you, my friend. Thank you so much for featuring my project this week and for hosting! xo

  4. I’ll be thinking about both you and your mom and hoping things go well. Taking care of aging parents is so hard.

    xoxo Niky

  5. Thanks so much for hosting Julie and I’m thrilled to be featured today! I am so sorry that your family may be dealing with yet another surgery! I feel so bad for your mom and all of you. It’s been a lot! You are all in my prayers! Hang in there and please keep us posted. Thanks again!

    1. Thank you, Denise! It’s been rough this time around. We are asking the Lord for quick healing!

    1. Thanks, Leanna! This surgery has been difficult, but we trust the Lord will heal her… praying it will be quickly!

  6. So sorry to hear about another surgery and I am praying for you and your mom, Julie. If you need some time off I think everyone would understand as this is so stressful of a time for your family and you.

    1. Thank you so much, Fernie. TTA is really not difficult at all, and I appreciate ‘seeing’ you all each week! Mom is having a more difficult this time, but we know the Lord is in control!

  7. Julie,
    Thanks for taking the time to host this charming party every week! I appreciate the time and effort that you put into it! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

    1. Thanks, Marie… the surgery was a bit more difficult this time. We are praying for the swelling to go down quickly and that she feels stronger, soon!

  8. Thank you for hosting again, Julie.
    I hope everything goes OK with your mom’s surgery – sending healing prayers and love your way.


  9. I’m so late to the game this week Julie, but I hope if your mom had to have surgery that it went well, and she’s recovering. I hope you get some downtime too – it’s just as hard on you!

    Thanks for the great features and for hosting as always! Take care my friend – sending good thought over to you and your mom!

    1. We are always happy to have your here, not matter what time, my friend. Mom DID have surgery. It was more difficult this time, and the recovery is a bit difficult this time. Will def have an update at the party.
