Your Daily HomeScope for January 30, 2023

If home is where the heart is, why shouldn’t it follow the same stars that we do? Our relationships with our homes are sacred, and like most, could use a bit of counseling here and there. Tap on your sun sign and start making your house more of a home today!


Though your ambitious side tells you it's time to get back to the gym, your life has been so physical lately you're still in pretty good shape! It's amazing what simple household routines such as scrubbing tubs or gardening can do for your physique. Remember to bend at your knees not lean over with a curved back when at all possible to avoid injury to your spine.


A fun gathering may get a little cloudy as you and a friend squabble over the best way to make serve brie -- toasted or cold. Let your friend have her way, even if her taste is vastly different than yours. Try to appreciate a new spin on an ultimately delicious thing. Have raspberry sauce or preserves to serve with the brie.


A recent barbecue followed by an ice cream social has you feeling a bit overwhelmed by heavy foods. Look to the lighter side for menu options this week. Steer clear of dripping oils or anything breaded with flour. Stick with raw vegetables. Steam the vegetables and season with lemon and crushed garlic.


You're in a bit of a spending pickle today. You never buy bargain-basement household items, but you don't want to blow all of your money on a high-end food processor when you should be saving for your vacation next month. There are ways to be frugal and not cheap -- it's time you make that discovery! Save pin money, by putting your loose change in a pretty yet inexpensive vase or bowl.


You may come across as being introverted, napping in the hammock in the yard or sitting sullenly in the shade. But you know an important moment is right around the corner -- you're simply opening yourself up to its possibilities. Surround yourself with cook and craft books, close your eyes and pick one.

At an evening with friends, you can't help but realize that the people seated around your dining room are getting louder and louder and louder! Don't try to control the volume or the increasingly raucous conversation. You're hosting a very memorable dinner party! Keep a towel handy as people who talk with their hands are likely to spill.


Think about the bigger picture today; don't let yourself get bogged down in the details. If you want to make a huge Italian feast, don't worry about the steps involved. Just plan the menu! You can figure out the how to fill a cannoli when you get to it. Sometimes you can buy fresh pasta directly from an Italian restaurant.


Work out stressful issues on the phone with a friend or with a relaxing stretch on the porch before your guests arrive. As much as you try never to let your guests see you sweat, your stress will actually be apparent in your food if you don't deal with it before dinnertime. Enlist a close friend's aid in the kitchen if necessary.


You may have memories of the tomato crops from your youth. With your fortuitous crop this year, though, you may be taken back to your childhood, the tomato plants bulging with fruit even more than you remember as a kid. Add fresh jalapeno, onion and garlic for a grown-up salsa.


It's not all that surprising that on the hottest day of the year all of your popsicles disappear. It won't take a detective to figure this one out. In the meantime, you'll have to make do with ice cubes and something delicious to pour over them. Make flavored ice cubes with fruit juice or fruit slices frozen in trays with water.


Use common sense today, being particularly aware of things that contradict each other. You wouldn't use silk fabric if you were sewing dishtowels, after all, and you certainly wouldn't use bleach on your colored clothing. Double-think everything you do, lest you make a silly mistake.


Not everything can be learned in books. Whether gardening is something you enjoy doing on your own or with a good friend, you can never underestimate the advice of others. Talk to your neighbors and the people at your local plant nursery to get the real scoop on what grows best in your neighborhood. Herbs need plenty of water.
