Some people talk to their plants. Some people talk to their pets. Some people even talk to themselves.
I talk to my house.
And first thing in the morning, when all the house is silent….
….before four children need lunch money or hair bows tied or permission slips signed or family fun night forms filled out or great discussions on why Abraham Lincoln was such a great president or that president is spelled p_r_e_s_i_d_e_n_t not p_r_e_c_e_d_e_n_t.
Before chaos reigns.
When all is still.
And it’s just me and the house and a really good cup of coffee.
I wake it up.
I tiptoe quietly from room to room….
…..and turn on one lamp, then another.
Silently encouraging the house to be the best house it could possibly ever be.
Fluffing and refluffing and placing and poofing.
And maybe even picking up a backpack or homework or tiny piece of paper or cheerio or a toothbrush or….
……a stinky sock or two.
Sometimes….if the house and I are feeling extra adventurous, I open the french doors and let the morning right in.
And say, “Welcome to the world little house.”
But that’s only on special days.
That’s only when we are feeling really crazy.
My house and I.
But I’m not the only one.
Did you know there is a whole community of home talkers?
People who form a community of over 100,000 homeowners, home bloggers, renters and home improvement professionals….
…..people just like you and me.
That’s 7106 home talkers.
People like this homeowner who wanted to know if vinegar would really get rid of weeds and she needed some answers.
And she got them.
58 answers to her question.
Home talker answers.
People like this expert (one of my favorites) who listens and answers questions and gives really good advice on super exciting topics like how to use an electric sander and home security and how to lay paving slabs and what tools to buy and how to hit a nail without hitting your fingers.
Important things like that.
Things only home talkers can understand.
And the best thing about Hometalk?
You can ask questions and share your projects and be inspired….all in one place….but the best thing about Hometalk….the thing makes me smile and wiggle my eyebrows and whistle the Cheers theme song, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”……what keeps me coming back to visit again and again and again….
…..are the conversations.
So let’s start talking.
