If there is one thing we learned during quarantine, it is we need to be self efficient. Exactly a year ago we got chickens and that has been the best decision we have ever made. We have taught Franco how to care for them, how to collect eggs and how we cook the eggs. (I am better at homeschooling than I thought!)
Gardening is something I want to get better at and also teach Franco along the way. I decided to give our gardening activity a twist so we stay interested and have fun with it.
I created this pizza garden kit that includes seeds to grow our own pizza toppings, how could we lose interest in that!? To know that a homemade pizza is within our reach is worth the wait!
This pizza garden kit is great to gift someone as well, I am providing a free printable so you can create your own and give to someone who wants to learn how to garden (and loves pizza!).
Here is what you need to make your own pizza garden kit:
An empty egg carton, I used a four pack, but you can up to a dozen based on which seeds you want to plant.
Used coffee grinds
Garden labels printable
Tooth picks for the garden labels
Fill holes of egg carton with some gardening soil, place seeds in and add more soil. Top with coffee grinds and pat down.
Cut out garden labels and tape each one to a toothpick. Place label in each prepared soil.
Water garden and let each plant germinate according to package directions for each seed. When it is time, bring them outside to continue growing.
By the end of the season, you will have everything you need to make a delicious pizza! Stay tuned for a delicious pizza dough recipe to make the ultimate homemade pizza.
The work landscape has changed dramatically this past year and more than ever, companies are hiring people to work remotely. According to FlexJobs survey, 65% of respondents report that they want to work fully remote post-pandemic, and 31% want a hybrid remote work environment. As a total 96% desire some form of remote work.
It has been reported that with working at home there are fewer interruptions, more focused time, quieter work environment, more comfortable workspace, and not being involved in office politics. Another benefit is that people who work are realizing that they have more real estate choices and opportunities.
As full time working parents, working remote has provided my husband and I flexibility while taking care of Franco. It is not easy, but we are thankful to have that option. The layout of our house is not ideal for remote work since there is a lot of open space and not much room for an office but we do our best to make it work.
I was talking to my husband the other night and we talked about what we would do if we were to buy a house today. We talked about how we would want more office space and more of an ideal location than where we are now. We used a mortgage calculator to compare and and get a better estimate if this is something we are seriously considering. According to Home Ownership Matters buyers want enclosed or flexible spaces within their home that can serve as a private home office. Homes that offer an additional bedroom or a finished basement or attic space are often in greater demand.
Because of working remotely, we are spending more time in our homes and it’s changing the way we look and the criteria we use when we shop for a new one. I have had friends move to another state this past year because their job would allow it. They finally got the dream they always wanted by leaving Upstate, New York and moving to the beach in North Carolina.
According to flexjobs.com these states have the most work-from-home-friendly counties:
The pandemic and remote working went hand-in-hand in changing the way people conduct business and live their lives. The pandemic didn’t force us to embrace remote work; it accelerated our embrace of being a remote worker.
As more companies decide to extend remote work opportunities in the coming months, and as more people realize they’re not tied down to their locale for their jobs, the residential real estate market is likely to continue its shift. If you’re ready to hit the road, do your due diligence to make sure moving is your best all-around option.
I am vocal about my mental health and always share about my struggles and advocacy.
Therapy and medication is my main source of coping with my struggles but I have also learned the benefits of CBD.
According to Medical News Today, cannabidiol oil comes from the Cannabis plant and has become a popular alternative therapy for a range of conditions over the past few years. It has been reported that CBD oil can help reduce pain, anxiety, inflammation sleep issues and more.
Although studies report very few side effects with Using CBD, its effectiveness for various medical conditions requires further research and is not known to curing diseases. Different spectrums of CBD include:
CBD isolate: CBD isolate is the pure form of CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD: This CBD contains all the phytochemicals that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. It also contains some trace amounts of THC, which is the compound that gives you that ‘high’ effect.
Broad-spectrum CBD: This CBD contains all the phytochemicals in the cannabis plant with little or no THC. Some broad-spectrum CBD may contain trace quantities of THC.
Any product made from hemp seed oil will not contain CBD. Hemp seed oil is high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega fatty acids which is still can be very beneficial.
CBD products with less than .3 percent THC are legal on the federal level, but are still illegal under some state laws. Check your state’s laws and those of anywhere you travel. Keep in mind that nonprescription CBD products are not FDA-approved.
With a lot of research, I have found CBD products that have benefitted me physically and mentally. Once again this is not my main source, but has provided as an aid in my beauty and health care.
