Kiss Some People Goodbye! Friends…

I thought I’d share some really cool short video’s I’ve grown to love by T.D. Jakes…. the topic friendships.

I love it when he says learn how to kiss some people goodbye and be a 360 thinker. Know who your friends are. Learn how to work with people who come and go in your life. Consider them to be like scaffolding. Scaffolding holds up a building for a time until its completed and then it’s removed right. He says love em when they come and love em when they go. Just don’t get bitter over constituents and comrades, because you must realize that if they leave they were never with you.

If you find a person who will be really happy for you then they are your confidants. Praise God for the people he sent to you not the ones who left.

Then here he says avoid people who seek to control and silence your personality. And advises that people exercise their bodies and minds. He says don’t exercise for appearance sake but for longevity. And for your mind you must read, read and read! So these are my favorites.

Good News! Jaggi’s Back On His Feet And Saves Gopi: Saath Nibaana Saathiya

there’s a magic that must be love….

just take it slow, we got so far to go….

you know that love survives, so we can rock forever…

~Rock With You~

~MICHAEL JACKSON~

~~~

Jaggi (Mohammad Nazim) forced himself up as he rose from that wheel chair to help Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) as she was hurt badly in a fall and so he not only got up, but he picked her up in his arms as well and proceeded to carry her to the hospital in his bare feet. I just couldn’t believe it! But I saw it! It was an amazing sight to see. Oh Wow! It was so amazing to watch how he loves and cares so much for Gopi.

Earlier in the soap, Gopi had been visited by Ahem’s (Mohammad Nazim) ghost (bhoot.) You would never believe it but she was tying a ribbon around the banyan tree for him and thinking of him as Jaggi was sitting nearby. Well Ahem took the string out of her hands and started walking in the opposite direction so as to unwind the thread she’d just tied. Then he explained to her that she must move on in life and allow Jaggi to love her now. Good advice he gave her as he told her to let his spirit go.

And so who would have guessed that it would have to take Ahem’s ghost (bhoot) to cause her to think sensibly because it seems like everyone else’s words have been falling on deaf ears.

I tell you, I am so looking forward to seeing great and amazing things for Gopi and Jaggi and it’s such good news that he is back on his feet again, just in time as their love is blossoming. All the amazing scenes of them getting closer and falling in love with each other. I can’t wait to see their budding romance progress all the more.

I Love DIY Cosmetics

“How To Make Crayon Lipstick – Easy DIY Recipe – Ms Toi”

~~~

I love growing and learning various ways in which to pamper myself, incorporate and make healthy changes in my life a little at a time.

I experimented with simple ingredients and learned how to create my own lotions, face cream, deodorant, tooth pastes, mouth washes and soaps. Then I realized the expensive makeup I had been purchasing all these years was not good for my skin and overall health. I figured there has to be a better way…. so I began to learn how to make my own mascara, lip balms, lipsticks, bronzing powder, wet and dry foundations and nail polishes in a way that is much more healthier and less expensive.

Lipstick or Lip Balms

1. Storage containers, lipstick holders or a lipstick mold. 2. Healthy oils, and vitamin E. 3. Mica powder or various colorful powders. 4. Plain 100% bees wax or 100% bees wax crayons.

Black/Color Mascara’s and Eye Liner

1. Activated charcoal powder or 2. toast some almonds til they turn black and grind them up in a coffee grinder or 3. by catching the black suet from burning a wick on a clay or stainless steel tray or diva.

Healthy oils, like castor oil, vitamin E, and/or some aloe vera gel etc.

A clean empty mascara tube with brush.

Different colors can be made with various powders or mica powder instead of the charcoal, almonds or black suet.

Bronzing Powders, Dry or Wet Foundation,

I did not realize how easy it is to make your own by using simple ingredients in the kitchen.

I blend powders like cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, turmeric, hibiscus or beet powder and a bit of cornstarch or clay to make an amazing bronzing powder or a dry or wet foundation by adding healthy oils. You could even use mica powder as well. But I prefer to not use mica powder on my face.

Eye Shadow

Beet or hibiscus powder with coco or any color mica powder into a small container with a bit of oil to create a soft eye shadow.

Frankin Nail Polish

4 or 5 free nail polish suspension base, various color glitter for nail polish or mica in various colors. Nail polish bottles that contain stainless steel mixing balls in them and nail brush.

The first time I mixed my own nail polish I tried using a kit as they come with everything you need to get started right away. Even the kits are much cheaper then buying the expensive vegan nail polishes which I used to buy sparingly because I wanted the better nail polish that did not contain those 5 dangerous chemicals or I’d wear nothing at all.

A simple base coat and top coat still needs to be purchased and I still buy my nail polish remover from Zoya or Spa natural.

Anita’s (Ira Soni) “Daughter” Sameer- Back For Her Mother’s Revenge: Saath Nibaana Saathiya

And so as if the Modi’s don’t have enough troubles right now….

Who’s the new girl on Saath Nibaana Saathiya? Well it turns out she’s Anita’s (Ira Soni) daughter.

Anita, Ahem Modi’s (Mohammad Nazim) old flame from back in the day. I tell you, just the sight of Anita’s daughter brings me back to the good ole days when Saath Nibaana Saathiya was a brand new show. Back then Ahem and Anita was in love before Kokila (Rupal Patel) stepped up and arranged for the alliance of Gopi (Gia Manek) and Ahem’s marriage.

Ahem, the good loyal son, obedient to his mom Kokila abided by his mother’s wishes and married Gopi instead of his love, Anita. I tell you Anita did put on a great performance back then as she tried her best to stop Ahem’s marriage to Gopi but finally Ahem’s relationship with Anita came to an end and so poor Anita was left broken hearted and for a while Ahem hated Gopi and took out his loss on Gopi. I tell you I felt so sorry for both Anita and Gopi back then, it was a sticky situation, but yet I was so happy to see Gopi getting married to Ahem.

The marriage progressed as Gopi went through a lot while Kokila who was very strict worked on transforming her daughter in law by teaching her how to win the love of her son.

Midway through their marriage Anita wiggled her way back into Ahem’s life and moved into the Modi Mansion disrupting Gopi and Ahem’s marriage as she tried to get her love back but her attempts failed in the end.

I tell you, I thought perhaps one day Anita (Ira Soni) was going to make a come back once more just as Mansi (Kajal Pisal) did to take out revenge on the Modi family. Anyway I never expected Anita would have a daughter who would show up years later for her mother’s revenge.

So my questions are…. Who is this girl Sameer anyway other than her being Anita’s daughter? Who is her father? Is she Ahem and Anita’s daughter? Didn’t Anita move on and get married to someone else? Is the revenge she hopes to get really worth all the trouble? And why is she using Ricky who recently arrived on the scene just as she did?

Ricky’s (Rohit Suchanti) troublesome ways is causing havoc in the Modi household just as recently everyone finds out that he is Gopi and Ahem’s long lost son. But lately Ricky’s innocent looking nanny showed up on the door steps of the Modi mansion and little do they know, his nanny is not so innocent after all because she is sneaking poison in the oil Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) uses to massage into Jaggi’s (Mohammad Nazim) feet as Gopi is trying to help Jaggi learn to walk again. So this nanny is bent on trying to derail Jaggi and Gopi’s hard work. She’s wants revenge because she feels Jaggi and the Modi family have mistreated her favorite child Ricky. But it’s amazing that the other night Jaggi startled Ricky’s Nanny when he came out of no where as he caught her stealthy at the door giving money to a creepy looking old lady. She told Jaggi she was getting some medicine.

So now that Jaggi’s suspicions have been aroused, hopefully the Nanny and her evil intentions will be exposed before any further damage is done to Jaggi by her. I hope the Modi’s will soon send this old hag on her way just as they exposed and gotten rid of crazy Gaura (Vandana Pathak) that caused the accident that put Jaggi in the wheel chair in the first place. As he is having some bad luck with these two “old hags” trying to ruin his life here lately, hopefully his luck will soon change for the better in that regard.

It is so nice to see how Jaggi and Gopi are experiencing some cute, romantic and loving moments together and that they are getting closer. I think Jaggi is really the best thing that has ever happened to Gopi. He’s such a nice guy! He keeps her happy and his amazing happy personality is contagious. He seems to be such a pleasure to be around. Who in their right mind would not love a happy go lucky kind of guy. He is really so handsome and just right for Gopi and Gopi is just right for him.

You gotta love, admire and adore Kokila’s personality so much too as Kokila is always being a strong amazing presence in Gopi’s life. Helping to guide her, she wants Gopi to see how amazing Jaggi is for her in stressing that Gopi should try harder to move on in making a life with Jaggi.

I tell you I am so addicted and in love with this amazing show!

Easy Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

~~~

It turns out that eggplant is now one of my most favorite foods and it runs neck and neck with yellow squash. I have to tell you that this wasn’t always true. As a matter of fact I used to hate eggplant and squash until I found a way to cook them to my liking.

It was my step mom’s delicious yellow squash recipe that caused me to fall in love with squash. And it was a crock pot Indian recipe that I tried years ago that made me love eggplant.

While this recipe tastes so good you would think the cook was in the kitchen all day making it but instead it is so quick and easy to prepare. All you need is four (4) major ingredients: spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, croutons and eggplant.

And I have to tell you that my husband absolutely loves this recipe too. So if you make it and like it let me know.

~~~

My Easy Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

Ingredients:

1 extra large eggplant (peeled and sliced slightly thick)

8-10 cups of garlic spaghetti sauce

3-4 cups of shredded fresh mozzarella cheese

3-4 Tablespoons of cooking oil

1-2 Tablespoons of Lawry’s seasoned salt, garlic powder and onion powder

2 cups of ranch style croutons (or any kind of croutons you may prefer will work) or

1 cup of Italian bread crumbs (sprinkled over the sliced eggplant)

Utensils:

1 large oblong glass dish/pan

1 sheet of aluminum foil (enough to cover)

Directions:

Preheat oven at 345 degrees.

1. Oil the pan.

2. Place eggplant slices onto pan evenly.

3. Sprinkle seasonings/spices and bread crumbs across the top of the eggplant slices.

4. Add spaghetti sauce over the eggplant slices.

5. Spread/sprinkle the mozzarella evenly across the top of spaghetti sauce.

6. Cover pan with foil.

7. Let dish bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until done.

8. Remove pan from oven and if using croutons instead of the bread crumbs place them around the edges of the pan into the spaghetti sauce, cover again and bake for another 2-5 minutes only. Then remove from oven.

It’s ready to serve and enough for 5-6 servings. With a side of butter toasted crusty french bread and a salad it was delicious if I must say so myself, LOL!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’d like to try this recipe with thin sliced green tomatoes added next time. I will let you know how it goes. Also you can play around with this recipe by adding some fresh mushrooms too.

Jaggi Parag Modi (Mohammad Nazim) Is Having A Love/Hate Relationship With Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee): Saath Nibaana Saathiya

Every night she walks right into my dreams

since I met her from the start….

I love you more then he, love you endlessly…

“The Girl Is Mine”

~Micheal Jackson/Paul McCartney~

OMG! I cannot believe it but Jaggi (Mohammad Nazim) has been confined to a wheel chair after the accident and so he’s in the mode of having a love/hate relationship with Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) which is a miracle to see because the man has been nothing but in love and crazy about her right from the start.

So once again I am feeling for Gopi because now Jaggi is really treating her unfairly and right about now he is reminding me of the way Ahem (Mohammad Nazim) used to treat her by being a little rough with her.

I know it’s true he’s in a lot of pain right now and it’s understandable but once again Gopi is in the place of having her heart broken. He cannot see how his behavior is breaking her heart just by the act of him pushing her away from him.

I know he is trying to maintain some dignity and retain his manhood. But goodness gracious of life! He keeps saying he doesn’t want her sympathy. I really am so surprised to see him acting toward her in this way. Then the way he grabbed her close to him, basically he was letting her know he is getting tired of waiting. He wants her more now then ever before. Wow that moment was hot! Wasn’t it. LOL! What woman on earth don’t want to be loved by her husband. Come on Gopi you better recognize!

But who knows, maybe this will be the catalyst to bring Gopi to a place of finally accepting him. And start letting go of Ahem and what once was. You know steadily living in the past. She has a live man before her now and he looks just as amazing and handsome as Ahem. So maybe now she will realize how much he means to her and they will come together and act like their marriage is a real one instead of just a friendship. Come on Gopi! I hope with all of this she will start to see that it’s time to really love him.

What Precautions Do You Take In Public Restrooms?

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 said this but at least she did turn back to the sink and began to run some plain water over his hands. So then I said please don’t forget the soap. I had a serious look on my face because I felt bad for the little child. I gave her a piece of paper towel to dry his hands with. It took a few seconds out of my time but I hoped it will cause her to think the next time.

And yes I know there are more important things in the world to be concerned about but even the little things such as this do matter.

Later I told my husband what I witnessed. I thought the child was way too young to be left to manage in a stall by himself in the first place. I tell you that I am amazed at how some people are unaware of how unsanitary the public rest rooms can be. And this is not the first time I saw something like this happen. I see people do it all the time. I hate to see how some people don’t wash their hands after using the facilities. So I figured why not post about it. So this is for the people who need a quick eye opener and lesson on what not to do and what to do when using a public restroom.

~~~

~~~

Never sit on the toilet seats.

Never touch with bare hands door knobs/handles.

Never touch with bare hands toilet handles/buttons.

Never touch with bare hands toilet locks or lock switches.

Never touch with bare hands sink handles/buttons.

Never touch with bare hands soap dispenser handles or pumps.

Never touch with bare hands paper towel handles or buttons.

Never touch with bare hands toilet paper compartments.

Never touch with bare hands the trash cans.

Never touch with bare hands diaper changing stations.

Never touch with bare hands the floors or put anything directly on the floors.

All of these don’t do without taking hygienic precautions beforehand.

I prefer and travel with my own hygienic supplies to help lessen my exposure to some nasty bacteria and harmful germs. I keep these seven (7) items in my car at all times.

(1) Clorox or Lysol disinfectant wipes, (2) hand sanitizer, (3) a roll of toilet tissue, (4) strong paper towels, (5) paper toilet seat covers, (6) Liquid hand soap, (7) Personal Wipes.

~~~

~~~

MY NINE (9) STEPS WHILE USING A PUBLIC RESTROOM FOR PERSONAL HEALTH

(1) Once I enter a public restroom I grab their paper towels if available about ten sheets. I check the stall and avoid walking or stepping into puddles of water or any kind of spillages. I use the paper towels to throw down on a very small area that is wet if it is close to the toilet. (Or I will just go ahead and report it to the janitor and sometimes they will come in and clean up the area quickly or I will go else where.)

1. I’ll use one paper towel to open and lock the stall door then dispose of that piece.

2. If I don’t leave my personal belongings in my vehicle, I’ll cover a diaper changing station or sink with a bunch of paper towels so I could lay my belongings there. Or I’ll pick the cleanest and driest area on the floor to cover with paper towels but only if in a disabled stall or a private facility so my belongings don’t get stolen.

3. Next, I’ll flush the toilet at minimum twice, being careful to use a paper towel on the flushing handle and discard.

4. Next wipe the toilet seat with Clorox or Lysol disinfectant wipes and discard. I’ll also use one or two wipes on the metal safety handle bars and safety grips located on the wall.

5. Next dry off the bars/grips and then the toilet seat with a couple of paper towels and discard.

6. Next, I’ll cover the toilet seat with a couple of toilet seat paper covers making sure to use enough to cover the entire toilet seat from front to back.

If the sink is located outside the stall

7. Before leaving the stall area I’ll be sure to remove and dispose of the toilet seat covers.

I will again lay fresh paper towels over the sink so I could lay down my belongings while I wash my hands.

8. I wash my hands and use a couple of paper towels to dry off my hands, then use another paper towel to turn off the faucet and another paper towel to open the door as I leave (so that I do not recontaminate my hands) and dispose of it.

9. Once I am completely out of the bathroom I’ll squeeze a bit of hand-sanitizer onto my hands just in case.

So each one of these steps takes a little thought at first if your not used to doing them, but they become automatic and habit once done often enough.

Also, another option to toilet seat covers is long strips of toilet paper or paper towels and if no disinfectant wipes to clean the seat or nothing to cover the seat then the ole squat method will work just as long as to not let any part of the skin touch the toilet seat at all.

I like when I run into the facilities that have motion sensors and automatic everything in them! From the doors opening and closing, hands free toilet flushing, hands free soap dispensers, hands free paper towel dispensers or warm air blowers to dry hands to hands free water flowing sinks.

But in any case I still carry in a small pouch the things I need. Now if I walk into a rest room that is way over the top in that the stink is unbearable and it’s obviously a filthy grime pit hole, I’ll walk right back out and go else where.

And even with the ones that look fairly decent, look and smells a little nicer, it is still a contaminated area. Anything that is for a large scale populations use, it should be used with precautions and considered contaminated with lots of nasty bacteria and germs not visible to the naked eye.

Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) And Ahem (Mohammad Nazim) Has A Long Lost Son: Saath Nibaana Saathiya

I just love me some Gopi on Saath Nibaana Saathiya. Devoleena Bhattacharjee has just taken on this role, coveted it, transformed it and made it all her own as she is such an amazing actress.

Lately there is new drama in the Modi household. Gopi and Ahem (her first and deceased husband) has a long lost son, Ricky (Ramakanth/Rohit Suchanti). She travelled to Singapore and found that apparently the babies (Vidya/Sonam Lamba) has been switched at birth by Gopi’s relative Antara. So she and her new husband Jaggi (Mohammad Nazim) brings him back home with them and now she is trying to reform him because he is a troubled young man/spoiled brat as per Antara. Well with all of this I know Gopi might be successful in getting her son on the right track. Only time will tell though. Good luck to Gopi.

Here’s Goes My Favorite Deviled Eggs Recipe

Not everyone is a fan for deviled eggs I know. But for me, they are a childhood favorite and every so often I get to yearning for a taste. So today they were great to have along with a plate of cooked fresh picked collards and turnip greens from our garden this week. I tell you those greens were so tender and didn’t take as long to cook as the ones brought in the grocery store (those grocery store greens are tough) and drinking the liquor from them is best.

This combination was so delicious to have for a change. I like the taste of the spicy mustard in the yolks which reminds me of sour or dill pickles, another food I love and this meal was so easy to make. Which reminds me further that my husband should plant some cucumbers in our garden this time because last summer a family member gave us a basket full of huge cucumbers they grew in their yard and so we made a few jars of cucumber pickles which was so easy to make. But there is one I must try the next time….. that’s jalapeno pickles. Anything hot and spicy is what I like. LOL!

Deviled Eggs Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon of Distilled White vinegar

1 Tablespoon of Kosher Salt

2-4 Tablespoons of mayonnaise

2-4 Tablespoons of Spicy Brown Mustard

1 Tablespoon of Plain Yogurt

a dash of smoked paprika

a sprinkle of salt (as preferred)

12 large eggs

boiled water

Utensils:

1 sauce pan (3-6 inches deep)

deviled egg tray

or a serving tray (covered with a paper towel so the eggs don’t slide)

small mixing bowl

fork or potato masher

tea spoon

Directions:

1. Add eggs, kosher salt, and vinegar to sauce pan and add enough water to cover.

2. Bring to a roaring boil for 1 to 2 minutes then turn off flame and cover pot with top and leave eggs sitting in the boiling water for at least 5 to 7 more minutes.

3. Put pot with eggs into the sink and allow cold water to run over then for at least one minute and then let them sit in the cold water for a few more minutes to completely cool down.

4. Peel each egg being careful to preserve the egg white skin in tact (so they will look smooth and pretty.)

5. Slice eggs in half’s and remove the yellow yolk and place yolks in bowl.

6. Lay each egg white on egg tray or serving tray with the insides facing upwards.

7. Mash the yolks then add the mustard, yogurt and mayonnaise and continue to mash/mix and blend together until it’s smooth like mashed potatoes.

8. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of the mixture to fill in the egg white center hole.

9. Just a sprinkle of salt and smoked paprika across the tops.

Then they are ready to serve.
