Traffic Flow in Your Room

TRAFFIC FLOW

Traffic Flow in Your Room

My Story

I have no traffic flow to my rooms. Any diyhomegoddess who doesn’t have flow, needs to change it up now. I have this habit of putting all my furniture against the wall. Why? Because I’m a klutz, and don’t want to be tripping over everything. Plus my family likes to leave things lying around anywhere. The coffee table will block the view of that book on the floor.

But if you think about it, the best setup for a formal party is to have food in sprinkled places with access on both sides, drinks in another area, tables in the middle, with plenty of walking space all around.

What To Do

According to several websites, you should have a traffic flow to your rooms. The best one I found is a website about apartments. Yes, it’s called Apartment Therapy. It’s a good website. I promise. You can link to it here.

Here is a Few Quick Tips

Shari Randall Writes Curses, Boiled Again!

Curses, Boiled Again by Shari Randall

General Introduction

Shari Randall has come up with a fun book here. There’s no such thing as a brand new book idea, just putting your own spin on an idea already out there. This author does it in spades. A restaurant, a food festival, and reality television? I’ve seen plenty of combinations for two of these, but all three? Not too many at all.

The one thing missing from this book is a lobster roll recipe. I got to find one, since this book made me hungry for one!

The Review

The Characters

Allie Larkin is a fun character. I automatically felt for her with the injury crushing her dreams for the moment. She is fully developed, and I enjoyed her bit of a scatterbrained attempt at solving the murder. She feels more realistic that way.

I love Aunt Gully, because she is a feisty broad. And she’s caring of others. The right personality for a restaurant.

The sister Lorel is one I love to hate. She seems too perfect for me, too put together, has no clue the insecurities she creates. Reminds me of my own sister. Doesn’t everyone have one of these in the family? I hope in the sequel she gets accused of the murder! Sorry Shari!

Love Yourself On Valentine’s Day

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? What does one do if they have no significant other? Or even if they do? And what is Valentine’s Day?

l am of the opinion a diyhomegoddess should celebrate herself on Valentine’s Day. Why? Because she can, and who else loves you better than yourself?

History of Valentine’s Day

What is the history of Valentine’s Day?

Catholics claim St Valentine was someone who married soldiers against Claudius II rules of having soldiers single. Or there was a man named Valentine in a prison, fell in love with a woman jailor, and sent her the first valentine. Pagans state there was a festival for fertility called Lupercalia on February 15th and women’s names were placed in an urn, bachelors drew a name, and they courted for the next year, with many getting married.

Leslie Karst Writes A Measure of Murder

General Introduction

A Measure of Murder

Another cozy mystery that has cooking as a subplot! I love it! And it’s got great humor. And well written.

Sally tries out for a chorus singing one of Mozart’s famous pieces. Something she always wanted to sing. On top of running a restaurant left to her by an aunt. And helping run her father’s family restaurant. Fortunately, or unfortunately, the two restaurants are not similar, one is more casual, one is more sophisticated. And on top of this, she gets involved in a murder. Again. And I tried THE SPAGHETTI CARBONARA RECIPE, which was wonderful!

Anyway, about the review.

The Characters

Sally is a woman of middle age, who is going through what most women of middle age go through. Leslie Karst was smart and didn’t gloss over it. It became part of her character, like it should.
