Put On Your Red Dress, Baby!!!

~~~~

Put on your red dress, baby. Lord, we’re goin out tonight

Put on your red dress, baby. Lord, we’re goin out tonight

and bring some boxin gloves case some fool might wanna fight

~Tommy Tucker~

High Heel Sneakers”

~~~~~~

I have to say that it’s sometimes painful

when a friend or relative or whoever hasn’t called or stopped by in a while.

It makes you say things like “what’s up with them”

But the truth of the matter is that we have to give people room

and plenty of space so that we can see how much we mean to them.

So I say, in times like these you have to “put on your red dress baby”

(you know what I mean!)

in order to improve and change things in relationships sometimes.

As my momma used to say… “it’s not wise to chase people, leave them alone.”

So that’s why we need to consider some valid points from the law of attraction.

We should hope to attract more better friends and better people in our lives

and know it’s much healthier to face the truth about

ones relatives, friendships and relationships.

~It’s A Sin For A Woman To Have Desires~ Learning To Sing “Raja Yaman” From Behind A Curtain: On Balika Vadu

BOLLYWOOD SONGS MEDLAY OF RAG YAMAN

COVERED BY ALPANA MEHROTRA

~~~

Wonderful! After hearing you, I think… your base has become strong. We can continue. Lets start. Well start with the melody (raga). Raga Yaman! May I ask you something? Your voice is so melodious. Have you really not learnt music before this? [Niranjan]

No. [Gehna Basant Singh]

Even you know that…. you’re good at music. You have a beautiful voice too. Did you ever feel to learn music before? [Niranjan]

Do you have a sister? [Gehna Basant Singh]

Yes. I have a younger sister. [Niranjan]

Does she sing? [Gehna Basant Singh]

She practiced with me before she got married. But now…. ooh. I can understand. There are many limitations for women in our society. Its a big thing that they breathe to live. Learning music is not easy. [Niranjan]

If she is from a poor family.. its a sin to have desires. [Gehna Basant Singh]

Which village are you from? [Niranjan]

Which raga were you talking about? [Gehna Basant Singh]

That was Raga Yaman. Before starting this raja I want to give you something. Take this. This is Goddess Saraswati’s photograph. If you keep it in front of you and practice….you’ll soon be a master in music. [Niranjan]

Thank you. Henceforth, I shall keep it in front of me and practice. [Gehna Basant Singh]

This is Raja Yaman. It has to be sung only at evenings. [Niranjan]

No Money For Flooring (DICB) Do It Cheaply And Beautify

I know people who just absolutely cannot afford to put down any type of new flooring at all in their homes. The cost for doing so is just way over their heads. Whether its buying wood floors, bamboo, linoleum or putting down wall to wall carpeting. Some people just do not have the funds and so they settle with living with ugly unsightly floors. Ugh!

So now, rather then live with ugly patched up looking floors I say it’s possible to do something about those ugly floors when covering them is just absolutely not in the budget right now.

I found these few YouTube videos and these brave women inspired me so much. I wish there were more about using contact to cover floors. I have to say using contact is a inexpensive, quick and easy way to beautify your home in so many ways.

I can remember growing up in a poor family and my mother used to use contact like crazy to help beautify our home. Not only was our home spotless, it was so cozy and warm. She used pick some pretty contact paper to cover the walls, kitchen cabinets, shelves and even tables. And wow did the house look so clean and beautiful all of the time. My mom would hang some really cute curtains to the windows to match and she used to buy pretty sheets and turn them into curtains and hang them to windows and closet doors and they looked amazing. Back then no one was doing this with sheets and you could buy sheets so cheaply. Even buy them from the thrift shops and re-purpose them. I tell you my mother was shrewd, LOL!

Well I have to tell you that I spent so much time trying to think of a way to cover our floors without having to spend a fortune. And so when I saw these YouTube videos I was so amazed with the idea. So I went ahead and purchased some plain glossy white contact and at first we tried it out on the floor in our guest room. Lo and behold it looked amazing! And so so pretty and clean. And so we went on and used it for a few other rooms in the house except for the kitchen. And I have to tell you we covered up to four (4) other rooms and a bathroom too and the total cost was only one hundred dollars. ($100.00) Yes that’s right only $100 dollars.

Now I have to tell you we had estimates for the floors for the entire house and it ran from the cheapest of $2000 to the highest of $10,000. And I am a cheapo. I tell you I would rather hold onto my money and let it grow in my savings account rather then spend it in one sweep on some floors right about now. Especially when there is a way to extend the time of having to do it by choosing a less expensive and easy way to cover them up and they look just as great. And they are so easy to keep clean. So now I use a damp dust mop or a small broom to keep them clean. And we always never wear shoes in the house as they are always left at the doorway. I am so impressed and feel so good that I didn’t have to spend excessive amounts of money.

Now who knows sometime in the future we may go ahead and bite the bullet and spend the money on redoing all the floors but until then this way works and no one will know it’s contact paper unless we tell them or you tell them now that you know our secret. (LOL!)

So our next project is to shop for a mint colored contact paper to cover the kitchen floor to match the freshly painted mint color kitchen cabinets. I’d love to find some contact paper that has sprinkles of red cherries in it. Like this fabric below…….

Just imagine how pretty that will be on the kitchen floor, I know I can!

So as you know I also chose to cover our bedroom floors with thin beautiful quilts in the winter and I do it because I absolutely just hate wall to wall carpets or any carpets because they cannot be washed in a washing machine and so I like the idea of being able to pick up the quilts as they get dusty and dirty and toss them in the washing machine and then put them back down on the floors again after they have been washed very well in some amazing smelling soapy laundry detergent and some great smelling fabric softener. (I posted about how I use quilts on floors, see 2 links to it at end of this post if you’d like to read it.) These quilts I purchased look so amazing and help to keep our house warm and our toes toasty by keeping the cold floors covered with them.

So I am not afraid to experiment the way I do and to try and do things differently then the norm. After all I learned from the best (my mom) how to improvise and re-purpose things. Especially when it will help me save my money and makes the house look better and cozy at the same time.

~So I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by my blog!~

Prepping: Adding A Good Emergency Crank Radio To My Preparedness Arsenal

Did you know that having an emergency crank radio will allow to get signals that most modern technology cannot receive?

Staying connected to get updates on a disaster situation and weather updates from the National Weather Service that you may not get with a standard radio helps to stay on top of information on hurricanes, tornadoes, and flooding. I want to be ready in any catastrophes or events for when the power goes out or for when the SHTF.

So that’s why I added an E Ready Emergency Crank Radio to my prepping arsenal. This radio has a hand crank in case it runs out of a charge but it also has a rechargeable battery and solar energy options. It charges your devices and has an SOS flashlight.

Being prepared is my number one reason for adding this to my prepping arsenal.

Prayer Is The Most Powerful Tool: My Constant Prayer Vigil For My Family And Others

I like to and been keeping my family in prayer for many, many years. And so I decided to step it up a pace this week by holding prayer vigils for them from time to time. I’ll set aside time, each and every day to pray for my family members at least for 10 to 15 minutes or more per person each one of my waking hours. The first hour I might pray for one member and the next hour another member and so forth and so on. So each waking hour I am praying for every last one of them. Also I might decide to turn away from my plate and fast for each one of them as well a few days a week. And of course while I am praying I am praying for my own relationship with them to be improved where it needs to be and to grow and blossom into something better and amazing everyday. If they ask me to pray for a need they have I do lift it up before the Most High.

The best part about all this praying is getting to witness answered prayers in their lives.

I have to tell you doing this feels so good and I know that the Most High hears me when I pray and I like knowing my prayers is like a blanket of protection of love and care for each individual.

Prayer is the most powerful tool on the face of the earth.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and reading my post today.

What I’ll Read This Fall & A Peek At My Latest Hobby Prepping Thingee’s

Two of My Latest Prepping Items are:

1. A collapsible 11 liter “Bucket” which is a portable folding water container to be used with my….

~and~

2. Hand held portable “Camping Shower” kit.

The main reason I purchased these two items is for their convenience. It is so nice to know we will still be able to enjoy a steamy hot shower when the water is shut off for whatever reason. I like it because all we will have to do is fill a bucket with warm water and be able to take a nice shower in any situation.

The last time our water was shut off due to a water main break we had to go two days without running hot water and so we had to settle with splashing our selves down and using a water filled bucket while standing in the bathtub and while it did the job it just did not work for me at all. I have to tell you that there is nothing like a steamy shower. So I searched and found this thing and it is something I wish we had the last time we were without water but anyway next time we will be ready. Plus I like that it can be taken in the car on camping trips or for when the day the SHTF.

~~~

Five Books On My To Read List For Fall are:

1. “What We Lose” by Zinzi Clemmons (this will be next)

~and~

2. “There Is No Good Card for This: What To Say and Do When Life Is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love” by Kelsey Crowe

~and~

3. “Henna House” by Nomi Eve (I will save this one for last)

~and~

4. “Secret Daughter: A Novel” by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

~and~

5. “First Love, Wild Love” by Madeline Baker (I’ve started reading now and it is hot!)

I tell you I fell in love with the idea of reading all five of these books after reading their reviews, the first few pages and the jackets of these books, not to mention how beautiful the cover looks on them. Don’t they look so amazing. So I could not resist.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

On Prepping For Hurricane Irma~ Getting Out Of Dodge! Get To Safety!

~~~

I been watching the news and the weather channel on Hurricane Irma and they were saying that there are three (3) storms brewing at the same time now and heading for the Florida area. Also there was a massive earth quake Thursday night off the coast of southern Mexico and there are Tsunami warnings for the Pacific coasts of several Central American countries. It seems like since this total solar eclipse there have been nothing but serious happenings. First there’s hurricane Harvey and how it has brought Houston to nothing and now this earthquake while hurricane Irma and the other two that are brewing and on the way to touch down in Florida. I tell you this is so frightening!

Anyway I have opened my doors to family members that live in the Florida area that must evacuate. So my husband and I have been getting the guest room ready, comfortable and pretty. We also picked up a few extra groceries and snacks for them once they arrive.

I also just wanted to say this to people. Please don’t try to ride this storm out. Leave, get out and get to safety. Don’t play around with your life. These storms are dangerous and are killing people.

THREE THINGS TO DO

If you don’t do anything else but these three (3) things it’s better than having done nothing at all.

So if you haven’t done so start now! Don’t freeze up or panic.

#1. Gas up your vehicle! Or prepare and set up to hitch a RIDE out of dodge!

#2. Gather all your important documents like birth certificates, and what ever else and put them in some strong Ziploc plastic baggies and keep them with you. Also write in a small phone book or a piece of paper or notebook all your contacts in case you loose your cell phone and put it with your important papers.

#3. Get a strong back pack and pack it with small bottles of water, some non- perishable food, healthy snacks, a can opener, a flash light and batteries, a change of clothes, some cash and credit cards. Be sure to put it near the door or inside your get away vehicle.

~~~

~~~~

HERE’S A LIST OF IDEAS OF WHAT WE WOULD DO IF WE LIVED IN THE AREAS OF THAT MUST BE EVACUATED 

My husband and I already have a plan (we like to call it a bug out plan) for what we would do if we had to evacuate immediately. We plan so that we can live out of our vehicle for a few days if we have to and plan to have a place to end up at like either a hotel or to stay with a family member or a friend until things are somewhat back to normal again.

~~~

~~~

#1. WE WELL PACK OUR VEHICLE

If we could gas up beforehand (we do it at the first sign of trouble) but if no time we would gas up on our way out. So we would load up our truck or SUV with the following items:

1. 3-5 days supply of water in gallons per person and a cooler with ice for drinks.

2. An extra container of gasoline.

3. Two large storage boxes/containers (those gallon sizes) filled mostly with all types of things such as:

In Box #1: Foods we like such as canned goods (don’t forget a can opener) fresh fruits, healthy snacks, plastic plates, plastic forks, spoons and napkins.

In Box #2: Utensils to cook with, a basic cook pot, a skillet, a crock pot, a camp cook stove and a box of cans of fuel to run the cook stove. Pot holders, dish towels, dish cloths, a small plastic container to wash dishes with. A water pitcher with a filter and small garbage bags.

4. Two suit cases packed with things such as:

Suit case #1: put our change of clothes per person, also an extra pair of shoes or boots or sneakers. Rain jackets, nighties, Pj’s, socks, hats and gloves.

Suit case #2: 1 Sheet set, 2 light blankets, personal items such as tooth brushes, tooth paste, floss, personal wipes, sanitary napkins or tampons, toilet paper, 2 towels, a few wash cloths, bars of soap, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, powder, lotion, oil, combs and brushes. All needed medications, first aid kits, nail clippers, reading glasses, a small sewing kit, bug and mosquito bite lotion.

~~~

~~~

ALSO to bring

5. One or two good sleeping bags, a tent, large and small garbage bags, large pieces of card board (to cover the windows if we have to sleep in our vehicle) masking tape, scissors, small cutting knife, bug spray, small personal battery operated fan for summer or a propane heater for winter.

6. A portable generator with solar panel, small chargers for phones and ipad. Extra batteries, 2 flash lights and a led lantern. Water proof matches and a few small candles.

7. For entertainment: A box of cards, one or two board games, coloring books, markers, notebook, pens, a good book to read and a magazine, a lap top and a crochet kit.

8. Each one of us will have our own back pack with us up front with some individual snacks, a small water bottle, a non perishable food item, cell phone, I Pad, extra cash, couple of credit cards, any pain medicine, hand sanitizer, and a few personal items in them.

So it would not take us more then an hour to put these items all together and into our vehicle and having a check list always ready helps it run a little smoother.

~~~

~~~

#2. SECURE THE HOME:

We bring in doors from the yard anything that can be flown into something. Board up the windows, close shutters and secure the house and hit the road.

#3 IF STAYING PUT:

But if we don’t have a mandatory evacuation to follow we would try to make sure that we have all the above things that are needed inside the house way beforehand. So keeping a full pantry at all times is a must for us.

ALWAYS HONING PREPPING SKILLS

That’s why honing ALL my prepping skills and leaning how to be prepared have been such a joy and so important to me. Although I like to make it a fun thing to do as I have turned prepping into one of my favorite hobbies. It’s like having insurance and peace of mind. So when I look at the people in the stores now on the news channels. They are all in mobs rushing around in fear and in a panic like state. Some are reduced to fighting each other and so are running around like “chickens with their heads cut off” for things they could have had already in their homes for emergencies such as this. They really don’t have to be out there with the rest of the unprepared folks therefore putting themselves in dangerous and uncomfortable situations. I tell you preppers don’t look so crazy now.

So when I see this panic going on now I just hope this storm will be the one to teach some a vital lesson of how important it is to be prepared somewhat.

I like the fact that I can relax a little better knowing we are all set if anything were to happen suddenly. We are stocked with gallons and gallons of water that we already purchased a long time ago. And we have ample amount of food, batteries, flash lights, fuel for cooking etc, if anything were to come our way. That’s why it’s always best to make a plan and be as resourceful as best you can.

~~~

~~~

~~~

Just a reminder:

Be sure to fill the bathtubs with water and any extra buckets and pails you have around to use for flushing the toilet, because there may not be any water to flush. Also have a few basins set aside to put water in them to bathe each day.

As a last resort you may need to drink from this water from the tub you stored. If you can get a water pitcher with a filter that would help. Or else start filling up all the pitchers and clean bottles you have in the house to use for drinking water if you could not buy any water at all.

BE SAFE PEOPLE! MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU!

There’s Nothing Like A Mother’s Heart: Piya Rangrezz

Okay you don’t want me to play games. I won’t. Neither you nor me. If you are calm now, then may I say something? Do me a favor? [Bhanwari Devi Singh]

No mom…. [Thakur Sher Singh]

I knew it. I knew you would say no.

She hasn’t been here for too long but your so madly in love with her. That you forgot your mother’s affection of 25 years. You must have heard this story………

A boy fell in love with a girl. The girl said “get me your mother’s heart.” The boy ripped his mother’s chest and took her heart out.

While returning he fell down. Do you know what the mother’s heart said? There was just one sound from his mother’s heart. “Dear, are you hurt?”

That is a mother’s heart.

You won’t understand. [Bhanwari Devi Singh]
