Fixin the little things is a page where I can share family and handyman information. Basically, this blog is all about me. Shameless self-promotion: of my family photos, of my services, of my writing, of my future, of my amazing ability to come up with clever ideas on photos of my life experiences . . . And also, a blatant visual aide when it comes to colors, spelling, formating, editing and computer stuff.

Happy Mother's Day!


Real Mothers don't eat quiche;they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensilsare probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors,filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know whatthe vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?'and get their answer when a little
voice says, 'Because I love you best.'
Real Mothers know that a child's growthis not measured by height or years or grade...
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...

The Images
of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.
16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!
35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she
carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she
shows,and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

A featured video on Kim Komando's Video of the day:

This great YouTube video shows the beauty of the American west. And it really is beautiful, especially when seen through time-lapse photography.

This video spans the West from California to Idaho to Nevada. It features bustling cities and serene landscapes. Travel to snow-capped mountains and remote dirt roads. It’s really neat to watch. Enjoy.

This puts my time lapse weather photos to shame!

Sand Fantasy - You've got a friend

Enjoy this great video! Have a great Week! it is stormy here so I may get a few breaks this week! Yippie!

Business is picking up for me as the weather improves. Today I got more sunshine than I needed and if not for borrowing some sun screen I would of burnt crispy. I repaired a fence for a client that blew down in the last wind storm. Replaced one post and started adding the fence slats to the two sections and ran out of energy and will have to finish the last section next week. The last several weeks I was lucky if I had three 4 hour appointments and now I am working a full week plus weekends.

I revised my Sunrise Sunset video with some new photos and different music. Take a look at it. Have a nice weekend!

Stopped by Brandon's yesterday for a visit and he has become quite the aeronautical engineer using a sheet of foam from Home Depot to make a flying junk jet! He and Gayla have become pretty proficient at photographing and putting together a great video to document this historical event which is nothing short of viewing the invention of the first TV.

He and his family are doing good and face a new challenge this week as they are caught up in Citi Bank's cutbacks. Now he will be a 'fwequent flyer' at the employment lines. Wish him well!

Doing Dishes

This is a motivational video and was created by FlyLady. Don't watch it unless you want to do your dishes.
Please wait for the video to load from Jumpcut, then click on the arrow to begin playing.

The music was composed by Amy Lacey. It is on our FLY CD! For more help with your shiny sink go to

Now all I have to do is fix the kitchen faucet that has been broken for 2 months.

SunRise - SunSet

(Now with background Music)

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

(chorus, Fiddler on the Roof)

Series of shots spliced together of sunrise and sunset in Salt Lake City, Utah taken from a local Weather camera facing west. the taller buildings are the downtown area. 1600 X 1200 pixels

What Ant Subterrain Structure's Look Like?

This YouTube video will change how you think about ants. You’ve all seen ants crawling from cracks in your driveway. But there are more powerful breeds of ants.

Ants live in underground kingdoms. We see the relatively small exits on the surface. But you won’t believe the structures they build below. A group of researchers, armed with tons of cement, will show you.
