It’s Time To Get Unstuck From Your Story: Let It Go! Release It!

Iyanla Vanzant is one amazing and inspiring woman. Here on the link below she talks about how to get unstuck from our stories. I call it living based on the past 99% of the time and holding on tight, repeating and reliving a sad part of your past.

It’s high time to let go and be free from the burdens and hurts of the past. No longer captive to these stories. Yes I’ll hurt with you and will cry with you but only for so long. The world keeps moving right along too. So it’s about time to Let it Go!

So you can move onto the next phase of your life. God has wonderful things for your life and my life. Good or bad, happy or sad.

I refuse to wallow!

Making Love In The Ocean

A rose can say I love you and want you to be mine, A rose can say I thank you for being so very kind, A rose can say congratulations, whatever the occasion may be, A rose can say I miss you and wish you were here with me, (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“The scene I had just witnessed (a couple making love in the ocean) brought back a lot of memories – not of things I had done but of things I had failed to do, wasted hours and frustrated moments and opportunities forever lost because time had eaten so much of my life and I would never get it back. I envied Yeoman and felt sorry for myself at the same time, because I had seen him in a moment that made all my happiness seem dull.”

by Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary


Making love in the ocean is something I never ever done, nor had the thought occurred to me. But could you imagine having done something so wonderful and amazing as that, with the one you love.

………but without almost drowning of course. LOL! I tell you this is the second book on my list to read by H.S.T.

Life’s Journey & The Grave

living life with purpose

(this image is at:

“Life should not be a journey to the grave

with the intention of arriving safely

in a pretty and well preserved body,

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke,

thoroughly used up,

totally worn out,

and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

~Hunter S. Thompson~


I said to myself wow! I almost like this quote. I must read his book.

The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

Romance, Dancing & Moving To My Favorite Tunes: Is So Amazing!

Lovesongs (Luther Vandross album)

Lovesongs (Luther Vandross album) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


So Amazing”

So, it’s really possible

to dance really well while standing in one spot you know

Why my husband and I do it all the time

I hold onto him tightly

WHILE he holds onto me

we move, groove and synchronize

And if I feel like I am going to fall……..

he catches me in his arms. (Hee, hee, hee)


It’s the types of romantic love songs that I adore with that perfect SMOOTHE UPBEAT to it that groove me and encourage me to move this BODY of mine! (while standing in place)

English: I love growing Roses, hope all enjoy.

English: I love growing Roses, hope all enjoy. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

You know there’s nothing like good music….. and it has always been the source to get me moving. I always used to enjoy doing everything to music and still do. So I used to dance right in the middle of the floor to an entire song non stop, no breaks and if really feeling it, I’d dance to at least 3 or 4 more songs easy.

Now you may think to yourself ah that’s nothing…. but just try free style dancing to a few incredibly upbeat songs and you’ll see what I mean, especially if not in good shape and you will be all out of breath my friend trust me. LOL! But it will be a good out of breath feeling! And knock the kinks out and get your body flowing and ready for more. LOL! So really moving my butt is a must, because I sit a lot due to having bad knees and arthritis which cause me to have soreness when it’s time to sleep and I don’t like nor want that.

So when doing in place dancing, I mostly rotate my hips, shake my booty from side to side, raise my hands up in the air and wave them side to side. It’s kinda hard if not used to it, but not so hard when done to the right kind of music. It’s motivational!

Only Time... (49854383)

Only Time… (49854383) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

So after one or two upbeat songs, I tone it down to a slower song and then pump it back up again with an upbeat song once more (switching the pace up and down helps me go for a longer period) so before I know it, 20 to 30 minutes has passed because each song runs about 8 to 10 minutes.

For me, having bad knees means being creative about getting exercise done that motivates me to keep doing it because of the pain.

So I stand in place and just move my upper torso by swaying from side to side, waving my arms and just pumping up my body as much as I can so to raise my heart rate.

So moving until I am completely out of breath then to slow it down a bit until I’m done is a fantastic way to get a complete 20 to 30 minute workout and to do it at least twice a week works because I like to do something different each time so I don’t get bored with my routines since working on weight loss and getting fitter is taking me some time.

Eating not so much, eating smaller portions and hanging around the house photo’s of what and where I want to be in a year from now and what I want to look like are goals I want to achieve. I will never give up! Never!

So it’s really possible to dance really well while standing in one spot you know. Why my husband and I do it all the time, I hold onto him tightly WHILE he holds onto me, we move, groove and synchronize. And if I feel like I am going to fall……..well he catches me in his arms. (Hee, hee, hee)

Money House Blessing: The Sweetest Of Fragrance

Home Blessing Kit - 3 Candles

(this image is at:

This isn’t one of those instant “luck producing, mojo money making potions” but back in the day I used to know people who really used to believe it could work in that way.

I remember friends I knew who used to spray it in their homes with the hopes that a huge windfall of money would come their way and “Mrs. Houston” who lived next door used to buy special green tall “money candles” and burn them in her house all the time to create wealth. But you know what for her it must have worked because that lady always seemed to have windfalls of money for some reason and used to do very well financially. Figure that!

Anyway….. for years when expecting company we’d tidy up and then spray the house with “Money House Blessing Fragrance” I tell you it is the most long lasting, exotic and sweet smelling fragrances in the entire world in my book! It seems this stuff has been around for as far back as I could remember.

Even “Glade” and all these other “so called fragrances companies” out there have nothing on MHB. I’ve only tried two kinds “Indian Fruit” and the other is “Cherry” and OMG! OMG! It leaves your house, car, bathroom or office space smelling so, so incredibly delicious and sweet. It only takes a few sprays and walla! But the area or house just cannot be funky to start with or else you will have a sweet smelling stink you cannot believe. So it works best in a clean and airy space.

And whats so cool is every room in the house need not be sprayed. So I just target the four corners of one bedroom in the back of the house, the four corners of all the bathrooms and the four corners of one room in the front of the house and that fragrance is so amazing that it travels through out the air quickly and the entire house smells wonderful. Especially if you turn on the fans or the air conditioning too.

Magnet Works, Ltd. Bless This

I must be honest….. I do enjoy trying all sort of things when it comes to making the house smell nice, like burning my favorite candles, incense sticks, putting a few drops of essential oils on an oil lamp, boiling orange, grapefruit or lemon peels and boiling cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. All these fragrances leave me intoxicated, LOL! But there is just something extra special about “Money House Blessing.” It’s one of my all time favorites that I like to quickly spray around at least a few minutes before the door bell rings with guest arriving.

It’s too bad you cannot readily find it in the stores like Walmart or Target. It’s one of those old school fragrances that is incredible.

So when people give me compliments about my house being so sweet smelling. I always grin and love it, but I never tell them. Well, except till now. So my secret is out. LOL!

Thank Goodness For Preps In Moments Like These

A meat sauce on spaghetti. The sauce contains ...

A meat sauce on spaghetti. The sauce contains tomato puree, diced tomatoes, diced beef, and bell peppers (red, yellow, and green) with the seeds included. A portion of the beef is intentionally over-cooked. The sauce is seasoned with fresh garlic, basil, oregano, paprika, onion powder, cajun seasoning, crushed red pepper, parsley, chili powder, olive oil, and possibly some additional seasonings. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today I was thinking how thankful I am that we have consistently prepared because lately we ran into a financial situation. I am so glad we were partially prepared and although we will be ok, our finances took a bit of a hit, so it’s nice to have food security.

It’s nice knowing we have enough food stocked up so that we could eat to our hearts content in moments like these which is amazing.

So today we cooked and ate angel hair pasta, turkey meat balls with Ragu spaghetti sauce for lunch and corn, greens and sausage for dinner with lemon flavored seltzer water.

Then this week the water filter was not working properly and so I was so glad we didn’t have to rush out to buy a new one, although they are not that expensive. So we were able to take from our supplies of gallons of water. It’s nice to know we can hold off till the next time we shop to pick up another new filter.

And one crazy thing is that I am so used to always buying everything we need as soon as we run out, not realizing I could use our storage items till we could get to a store on a later date and time. That helps to keep life moving smoothly along. So with plenty of gallons of water to choose from I used my storage water to cook and drink from at moments like these.

I tell you prepping is the best hobby in the world! You never really know when your supplies will one day come in handy and for us this week they came in real handy, till things go back to normal.

Herbal Remedies/Concoctions

herbal medicine

(This image is at:

It’s always been my dream to become an herbalist one day and so for now I am fine with just learning all I can by reading about herbal medicine and experimenting all the time with mixing herbal remedies and concoctions. It’s such a nice hobby. My husband teases me that I should become some crazy scientist. LOL!

But I have always been in love with the notion/idea of helping to heal the body safely and as naturally as possible. I dream of the day I could grow my own medicinal garden one day.

So it’s that time of year again when I get busy preparing herbal concoctions/remedies for the coming fall and winter months because it takes a while for herbs to steep. Most of the ones I like to blend and prepare require at minimum a six (6) to eight (8) week period for them to set before you can start using them.

Herbal medicines are made

(This image is at:

So, thus far this week I prepared two quart jars of regular “Old Sour Puss” and of “Everything Old Sour Puss.” I added at least ten herbs to the everything OSP recipe and just add up to three herbs to the regular OSP recipe.

Plus I prepared for my neighbor a quart jar of “Pine Honey” again this year, she manages to catch such horrible colds during the winter months for some reason. I think it’s because she stays on the go and runs her body down.

We are so lucky because around here is a huge abundance of pine trees to harvest the pine needle tips. We have a couple of huge and beautiful pine trees out back and I always get my husband to snip some up for me to wash, dry and prepare.

I have a few of my mother in laws cold and flu remedies too and I remember what she used to say about her remedies “it will either cure ya or kill ya!” LOL! Sorry but I am sticking with only the ones that cure…. LOL!

So we were lucky because for over the past ten years my husband and I rarely catch colds/flu’s and I am really surprised about it but except for last winter, I caught a really bad cold/flu and it was the worst one I had yet. It was really horrible and lasted for weeks, but considering the fact that I haven’t had one in over a ten (10) year period I guess it was not so bad.

But this winter I vow to be more organized and to have all my herbal concoctions/remedies all ready.

Love Walked Through The Door: A New Love Story Blossoms Between Professor Rahul & Geet (Kirti Nagpure) on Ek Veer Ki Ardaas

Cottage Art Sweet Home

(this image is at:


“A House Is Not A Home”


A chair is still a chair, Even when there’s no one sittin’ there. But a chair is not a house. And a house is not a home, When there’s no one there to hold you tight. And no one there you can kiss goodnight ~Luther Vandross~ love songs


English: A red rose with dewdrops Français : U...

In his spirit he knew she was the one for him….

the one that he’s been waiting for her his whole life long.

It was something in the way she moved him…..

Her gentle simplicity and quiet spirit won his heart over instantly.

And as quickly as he fell for her he charmed and won over her little daughter.

He wanted a wife who’d turn his house into a home, and did not want to return to London alone.

He found here, his luck changed, he will never be the same.


I know in my heart that Rahul and Geet (Kirti Nagpure) are going to be absolutely perfect for each other. Yes it sounds so sweet! Rahul and Geet.

Hey! Who is this new hunk of a guy Rahul? Anyway!

But I have a feeling that theirs is going to be the newest, fresh, sweetest and hottest love story on Ek Veer Ki Ardaas for a little while anyway.

Geet’s, a young widow with a cute adorable daughter named Deepu (Vrudhi Jakra) and Badev’s family is trying to get her remarried. As it turns out and to her good fortune this amazing kind and sensitive man’s love walked right through her door steps, Rahul turns out to be the perfect man for her and her daughter.

Pssst….let me pull your coat tail for a minute. Have you ever fell for the type of guy who is hungry for you then you married him? Well Rahul is just that kind of man, a good looking and charming hunk who is ripe for love! And you wanna know how I know? Well first of all he pours the romance on a lovely Geet kinda thick! If I may be allowed to use that kind of lingo. LOL!

I tell you once the man laid his eyes upon her face and he wasn’t even in the door for five minutes before he started telling Baldev (Vishal Vashishtha) and the family how very much he was looking for a woman capable of turning his house into a home. Whew girl, now that’s hot! I had to get out my trusty little fan for a second to cool me down….LOL! Then right away once he found out she had a small girl child, he went upstairs to introduce himself right away to Geet’s sweet little daughter Deepu and just that quick he won that little girls heart.

He’s promised little Deepu that he will keep her lovely mother happy always and promised Geet to keep her sweet daughter little Deepu happy always. Oh how sweet! I had to break out the tissues cause a tiny tear was forming in the corner of my eye.

Rahul is a Professor from Veera’s (Digangana Suryavanshi) school, and he’s a devout man who prayed he’d not return home alone and so he might have just gotten his hearts desire this time.

This man did not let up for one moment as he was working his charm on Geet’s entire family! Baldev, Veera, Balwant (Yajuvendra Singh) and Bansuri (Vishavpreet Kaur) are all impressed by this man’s sincerity and eagerness to marry lovely Geet and there’s one thing I know for sure, that is, the way to a woman’s heart is through loving and treating her little babies well and knowing to do that right from the very start is smart. And so I tell you that this man makes you want to ask and say….. Wow! Is he for real? Or pinch me because this feels so good and seems almost too good to be true. But it really is true, he’s the real deal!

Close up yellow rose

It was so nice to see how Rahul did not waver not even for a moment and nor was there one ounce of doubt in his mind. He had no problem expressing his strong emotions and feelings for the beautiful and lovely Geet.

He made it known right away that he wanted to marry Geet from the second he laid eyes on her and it was so cute and romantic to watch as he went down on bended knee asking Geet to marry him. Oh so sweet it was! This man is such a Prince charming! I cannot wait till tomorrow’s show to see her as she replies. I hope she says yes.

I tell you Geet deserves every bit of the genuineness this guy is showing towards her, he is kind, simple and seems like such a loving man too. So just as she’s gentle and her daughter Deepu is so sweet as can be, you just couldn’t help but to fall in love with their love story.

Geet and her daughter Deepu was adored from day one when Ranvi (Shivin Narang) found Deepu as she wandered off from her mother that day and from the moment they arrived in Pitampura Village.

Rahul’s kind spirit, charming ways and good looks will go a long way and it feels like their relationship can grow into something quite amazing. I cannot wait until the day he finds out that Geet has an amazing voice as Gujan found out Ranvi was that charming singer she adored.

It would be nice to see Geet and Ranvi sing again too because their music duet was so beautiful and such a lovely tune. But I don’t want to put my heart out there on it because it won’t be happening any time soon since Gujan (Farnaz Shetty) feels this innocent woman wants to take her Ranvi away from her.

Poor Gujan, but you can’t really blame her for being so insecure because her husband is such a wonderful guy and she does not want to loose Ranvi. And then again Geet has such qualities that makes a man weak in the knees, if you know what I mean. LOL!

Rose rose

It sure would be nice to see more of this lovely couple to be. The only problem is that Rahul’s home is in London, and it’s too bad because “if” they marry and I say “If” because the show ended today with him proposing to Geet and waiting for her reply. I just hope she says yes to him.

But London is too far away. So I hope if they marry they’ll stay in Pitampura Village at least for a little while.

Also at first I felt sorry for Geet because she’s kinda being forced into getting married for a second time due to Gujan’s request and her insecurity about Ranvi and her.

Plus with Ratan’s (Sneha Wagh) sad death, they are filled with sorrow, loss and raw emotion over losing her so suddenly. I know if Ranvi ever finds out who killed Ratan that person will have hell to pay. I sure hope the truth comes out about who was behind Ratan’s murder.

And by the way where is Veera and Ranvi’s sweet Aunt Moti Chaiji (Shagufta Ali)? Haven’t seen her on the show these days. I hope she comes back soon.

But anyway I am just thinking how so nice it is to see Rahul and Geet’s fresh and new relationship for now, just wishing to see them as they grow close and fall deeply in love with each other further on down the road.

Well I guess I’ll just have to continue watching, hoping, praying and keeping my fingers crossed that they will stay for some time, even a little while will be nice.

A House Is Not A Home (lyrics)

“A House Is Not A Home Lyrics”

A chair is still a chair

Even when there’s no one sittin’ there

But a chair is not a house

And a house is not a home

When there’s no one there to hold you tight

And no one there you can kiss goodnight

Woah girl

A room is still a room

Even when there’s nothin’ there but gloom

But a room is not a house

And a house is not a home

When the two of us are far apart

And one of us has a broken heart


Now and then I call your name

And suddenly your face appears

But it’s just a crazy game

When it ends, it ends in tears

Pretty little darling, have a heart

Don’t let one mistake keep us apart

I’m not meant to live alone

Turn this house into a home

When I climb the stairs and turn the key

Oh, please be there

Sayin’ that you’re still in love with me, yeah

I’m not meant to live alone

Turn this house into a home

when I climb the stairs and turn the key

Oh, please be there, still in love

I said, still in love, still in love with me, yeah

Are you gonna be in love with me?

I want you and need you to be, yeah

Still in love with me

Say you’re gonna be in love with me

It’s drivin’ me crazy to think

That my baby couldn’t be still in love with me

Are you gonna be? Say you’re gonna be

Are you gonna be? Say you’re gonna be

Are you gonna be? Say you’re gonna be

Well well, well well

Still in love, so in love, still in love with me

Are you gonna be?

Say that you’re gonna be

Still in love with me, yeah

With me, oh

Still in love with me, yeah
