As our country is learning to become more cleaner and sanitary I thought today a perfect time to repost this because I have always been very careful about how I do things. I wrote this post back in 2017 and the attached video might be of some use to someone.

How to Wash Your Hands Properly to Kill Germs | Regents Park Boca Raton

~~~

While in the public restroom the other day I saw this little boy struggling to fix his little pants while coming out of a stall. He must have been only two years old. The adult with him did not go into the stall with him as she was waiting at the sink and was yelling out to him to hurry. I tell you my heart went out for that little darling. I wanted so much to help him if I could.

Anyway the little child went running out of the stall and as they both proceeded to walk out of the restroom, I stopped the lady at the door and asked her to at least help him wash his little hands before leaving please. She looked at me with a look of surprise that I…

Loving Memories: Balika Vadhu

~~~

~~~

Memories are in slumber in some corner of the mind.

When they awaken they sometimes give us pain

and sometimes happiness.

Our eyes fill with tears but

our mind fills with joy.

Homemade Chicken Soup for Our Dogs To The Rescue

~~~

~~~

One of our dogs was doing a lot of coughing and so much so that I went to the door to check on him. But he ran away into the woods once he heard the door being opened. I yelled out to him to get him to come back but he ignored my calling out to him. So later that day my husband went out to feed him and the other two dogs and so when he came over to eat, my husband put him on a leash and brought him back over to his own dog house to stay for a while. We wanted to make sure that he is no longer free to be running all over the place because it was apparent that he needed rest since it is obvious he was coming down with a bad cold.

Well, I said to my husband, thank goodness that the rest of the dogs were just fine and showed no symptoms of a cold too but we had to not only care for the one who was sick but to do some preventive care for the other two. So I put together some echinacea, elderberry, ginger, Hawthorne berry, and vitamin C capsules to go in their food every day, baked a large tray of unseasoned chicken thighs for the dogs, and seasoned a whole chicken for us. Once the meats were cooled I removed the bones and put the thigh meat and it’s drippings into a crock for the dogs and the whole chicken meat and it’s drippings into another crock for us, then added to both crocks, water, frozen mixed vegetables, frozen carrots, some fresh chopped celery and a few chicken bouillon cubes for flavor and allowed the soup to cook slowly over the next few hours. Then made a pot of egg noodles for us and plain rice for the dogs.

My neighbor wanted some and so we shared some with her. Our soup was so delicious with the egg noodles and we had a few saltine crackers on the side as it was made at the perfect time because the temperature was down in the low 30’s all week long.

So we loved our soup and it was so amazing to see how all the dogs loved theirs and to see that it helped chase away our sick dog’s cough and cold within just a few days. I was so happy he got better and so we managed to avoid having to take him to see the vet for treatment and buying antibiotics. And for that, I am happy and thankful.

Having Great Chemistry At Least Once In A Lifetime: The Payal Dev Mashup

~~~

~~~

The Payal Dev Mashup

DJ Kiran Kamath | Hina K, Shaheer S | Mohsin K, Shivangi J | Surbhi C, Sharad

~~~

I tell you great chemistry is intensity, romance, magic, and magnetic attraction between two people in love.

I always believed that chemistry is vital to a budding loving relationship and marriage or what else is there to life.

Something just clicks between the two of you emotionally and you spend time thinking about each other when the other one is absent. It’s huge when you understand each other and always have consideration of how the other is feeling at all times.

Just imagine a relationship so close that you are in sync with each other, not to mention the intense physical attraction that makes you want to make love and not want to come up for air.

It seems some people can go through their whole lives without it but for me…

if the truth would be told, I would have to say I’d be miserable if I couldn’t experience it at least once in my lifetime.

Yes, at least once in my lifetime.

Great Chemistry…

Past Has Passed…Let It Go: Balika Vadhu

Past is just a part of time that has passed,

which can never turn into present.

If a person stays attached to it

then the path of moving ahead in life

with a new energy is blocked.

Words Come To Life: Balika Vadhu

Words give life to thoughts.

When bitterness drips from words

the truth inside starts showing on the outside.

That is when the difference in real and apparent natures begins to show clearly.

Is It Possible That Love Can Heal?: Humko Tum Mil Gaye

~~~

~~~

A… loving woman is a gift…

Ecclesiasticus 26:14

I never thought for a moment that love was powerless. I believe with all of my heart that love is a force that can heal in all kinds of ways and miracles can happen, but you have to believe.

So in this music video “Humko Tum Mil Gaye” a love story comes to life about a couple that is quite amazing. I had to watch it a couple of times to really take in what happened here. And each time I watched it I was so overtaken with emotion by how the love between them was so strong that healing took place.

Do you believe love can heal? I tell you that as a young girl growing up in my mother’s house I witnessed love so strong at times and its power happening over and over again in the lives of people in my family and friends as actual healings took place. It was a good thing being surrounded by the power of love at such a tender age and so I can never be afraid to love and receive love knowing what it could do. Anything is possible and can be achieved with love.

Yes, I do believe love can heal.

… kindness is on her tongue

Proverbs 31:26

Winter… My True Love

~~~

~~~

Winter, spring, summer, and fall, I just enjoy all of the seasons but I believe my true love is winter.

And although I don’t like the cold, I like that in the midst of the cold I can easily sit by a fire or a heat source to stay warm.

So far my true love has brought us some very warm days and cold, chilly nights because here in the South early winters are kinda mild and become harsher as winter progresses and so I like that too.

I enjoy looking out my window watching tiny little birds hopping across the snow seeing blankets of snow on the trees, and wearing warm, comfortable, soft clothing indoors, and putting on a wool scarf, hat, mittens, boots, and coat to go outdoors and snuggling under soft blankets as I sleep.

My fridge is stocked with lots of eggnogs and on my kitchen counter is a little canister of mixed holiday hard candies as days go by I sip on various kinds of beverages like hot cocoa, chai tea, or frothy caramel coffee in some of my favorite winter mugs. My husband loves it when I stick an apple or cherry pie in the oven to bake on the weekends. There’s nothing like a slice that’s topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I love looking through cookbooks all winter long picking and choosing what types of meals we should make. But our favorites are the standard hot oats, or eggs, toast with beef bacon, grits or pancakes for breakfast, and lots of different kinds of homemade soups for lunches, and we love having pots of mild chili with beans, or lasagna, or spicy tomato meat sauce over thin spaghetti for dinners with crusty rolls or bread and vegetables like kale, collards, mustard’s or turnip greens, string beans, broccoli, pumpkin, squash, and baked sweet potatoes all winter long which nourishes and builds us in body and soul.

~~~

~~~

Winter reminds me of the way life should be, slow but steady in that it’s time to slow down a bit and take time to care for me and mine. It says it’s time to go into pamper mode, so I love taking more steamy hot showers and stocking up on body scrubs, shower gels, and yummy lotions as a reward for doing body stretches and exercise. And I love soaking my feet in toasty warm scented water doing mani’s and pedi’s and applying beautiful nail polish on my toenails and fingernails afterward. And deep conditioning and washing and caring for my hair as I like to slowly brush my hair and play soft music as I prepare for sleep at night.

My favorite body scrubs, lotions, and potions are from Victoria Secrets. I’m hooked on it…

1. Honey lavender soothing body lotion with pure honey and lavender extract

(this one is my most favorite, it smells amazing and it’s rich, creamy, and goes on smooth on the skin, making your skin so soft and the fragrance lingers for a long time. It smells like the sweetest honey but laced in lavender 💜)

2. Coco vanilla comforting body lotion with vanilla bean and coconut oil

3. Honey cranberry glow-boosting body lotion with pure honey and cranberry extract

4. Basic comforts body lotion in pumpkin spice latte and whipped cream

5. Basic comforts body lotion in basic vanilla with toasted marshmallow and warm chai

(I carry this one in my bag/purse to apply to my hands several times a day, it smells amazing and keeps your hands baby soft)

6. Honey lavender body scrub with pure honey and lavender extract

~~~

~~~

I tell you all I need is to read poems about winter and snuggle up with just a few charming and delightful books. I picked up…

1. The Feast Of Roses by Indu Sundaresan

2. Shadow Princess by Indu Sundaresan

3. The Twentieth Wife by Indu Sundaresan

~and~

4. Kade by Madeline Baker

(I’m so hooked on Madeline Baker’s Indian romance novels, she writes so well that I don’t want to put her books down)

Does anyone care to join me in reading these particular books? Well, you certainly are welcome to do so. I hope you do.

And I have a few beautiful and colorful diamond paintings, crossword, and jigsaw puzzles to complete as well.

~~~

~~~

I also think that wintertime is one of the best times to get help with deep cleaning, decluttering, and decorating each room. There’s nothing like slow and deliberate house blessing. I feel that a house should always stay fresh smelling and clean all winter long so that by the time spring rolls around more time can be spent enjoying the outdoors and not be stuck indoors cleaning.

Here’s a list of some of the names of my favorites scented candles and wax melts I have going throughout the house:

Wax melts:

1. Blueberry cheesecake

2. Waffles and Ice cream

3. Sugared donuts

4. Pecan butter tart

5. Pineapple cake pop

6. Wild berries

7. Pumpkin caramel swirl

Candles: (3wick)

1. Sweet potato marshmallow

2. Strawberry cake pop

3. Cotton candy

4. Strawberry lemonade cupcake

5. Sugared pink dreams

6. Hibiscus fruit punch

7. Carrot cake

8. Cherry cobbler

9. Wildflower ginger

10. Ribbon candy

11. Wonderland

12. Snowman cookies

13. Lovely leaves

14. Honey vanilla

15. Unicorn

One Lifetime Is Never Enough: Mohabbat Hai

~~~

~~~

If I could get a silver dollar for every time in my life that I felt “Deja Vue”

I’d be a rich woman.

Well here’s a music video song “Jeet Gannguli’s Mohabbat Hai” which is so telling.

A love story…

It’s quite different in that it leaves a person wondering if the past lifetime’s notion

is true or not.

I guess you can say I’m being greedy

because all I know for sure is that sometimes…

I feel like living one lifetime is never enough.
