Wedding Dance Lessons

It is our dream to be wed to the person we love. As much as possible, as long as we have a budget for it, we try to make it beautiful and a memorable one. For me, as a conservative woman, I only get married once and better make a memory of it which happened ten years ago. Back then, we had money dance but that wasn’t really something we practiced or neither was there a dance show. Had I known that we could take wedding dance lessons? But anyway, ten years have passed and we are still happily married and that is all that matters to me. My wedding was beautiful, shall I say!

Black Friday Sale at Goodwill

So you think only popular retailers will have their Black Friday sales? I didn’t know that thrift stores like Goodwill also participates that event. I didn’t know that until I subscribed to their newsletter, it was in my email they sent me that I knew they were having a BF sale today. So, there I went and the girls this morning. When we arrived at past ten, their parking lot was half full.

Practical shoppers chose to shop at GW instead of burning money at the mall or electronic stores. They were also having 50% off entire store, I didn’t buy much there today, I got out from the store and paid with just under $8. One of the few items that I think is a really a steal is this 4-piece set Christmas theme place mats. I really wanted to buy this kind of place mats to add life to our dining table, I’ve seen a few at other thrift store but they were old and faded, this set is like new and unique. Instead of the common poinsettia theme, these are ornaments or balls that I really like.

I am happy of my find today, for just $1.49 minus 50% off, that’s just awesome!

Last Harvest of Peppers from the Garden

These are the last harvest before our first froze I had from our garden for this year. I got quite a lot of these peppers in our fridge for winter. Thank God for organic gardening, we get to enjoy this harvest for much longer. Save us money too.

Along with it, I also harvested my lemon grass and put them in the freezer. I think I have enough supply of lemongrass until the next gardening season.

I feel bad for my 4 squashes for they were left out to freeze and couldn’t do anything to save them. The squash is the the last and only vegetable that kept making produce until the last day of heat and now they got bad due to winter-like temperatures we have. I didn’t want to harvest them too for they are are too young to cut off from the stem, I doubt if they taste good when cooked so I just left them to go bad. photo peppers_zps8ec73479.jpg

Christmas Tree and Decors 2014

Pardon me for it’s not Thanksgiving yet but our tree is already up. It’s up a week before one of America’s biggest Holiday. My girls and I had worked on putting up our two Christmas trees for 3 hours last weekend. Not only that, I also managed to put up some decors for our table doing the DIY and green and red colors table cloth.

My husband helped me putting up the three big wreaths by our outside windows and gate. We still have four lights need to be put up but they can wait until the weather warms up a little bit to work outside. I wanted to have some series lights but I just have to wait until Christmas is over and avail the 50% off discounts most stores offer after the occasion. Hopefully I can buy them this year so we will be sparkling next Christmas.

The Trial Against AKAL CORP.

Yesterday, we attended a trial of our lawsuit we filed against AKAL CORP. After 2.5 years, we finally had to put Parminder Singh, Harminder Singh as well as Keenan McCarty on trial. Face to face in a courtroom. The feeling of “satisfaction” I get looking at those “vacant dummies” being grilled with our attorneys is just heavenly.

As soon as they entered the court room, I couldn’t stop staring at those three faces who caused us so much misery, frustrations and all. That “sharp-knife” look in my eyes obviously made them uncomfortable, I made it obvious to them that I was staring at them without blinking a second the whole three hours I was there so that they may know, I wasn’t happy with them. Those dummies couldn’t even look at me in my eyes. I stare at them in point blank, they turned their head away.

I did it memorizing every detail of their faces so I will never forget them, if one day I bumped into them, I will be able to recognize them that once we chased them in court for they chose to keep our money and not putting a single nail or metal on our roof! How could these people sleep knowing they took people’s money and expecting we won’t fight back?

On the witness stand, they were shivering and mumbling. They were obviously nervous and eating their words like they just had a stroke that looked so funny. Nothing is more satisfying than that, yeah? Keenan specifically, looked like a lost kitty in the rain, taking his deep breath before walking into the witness stand. His once big mouth is gone, I could barely hear him from the back. Before, when he was still  trying to get our business, he was always proud, friendly and pretended nice.

Unfortunately,  my baby and I had to go home. I couldn’t listen/watch to Parminder on the witness stand but hey, good thing I didn’t have to go through another two hours of that trial because I would only know how CONFUSED he is than his brother Harminder. I looked at those people as little creatures while in the court room because of what they have done to us and not having an intention of returning our money unless sued.

Keenan though is dismissed from the case, good for him though so he can go on with his life. Now it’s just us and the SNAKE brothers!

We are awaiting judge’s decision, before then, I can only pray that God will be with us until it ends. He knows everything and I lift it all up to Him. Bad Karma will come to those who do evil to other people.

The Industry Secrets to Keeping your Blinds Clean

Having window blinds and shutters installed in the house is a creative way to add style to the home. It’s also an excellent way to increase the value of a property and keep utility bills low.

The right set of powered blinds is a brilliant way to keep UV rays out of the house, for instance, as well as being a marvelous way to keep privacy in the home.

There are thousands of shutters and blinds to choose from, and custom, bespoke designs can enhance a home extensively. Bu it’s essential to keep blinds as clean as possible and maintain them to keep them in pristine condition.

There are a number of ways to keep window blinds tidy, clean, and beautiful including:

Keeping doors closed when necessary

People that have blinds and shutters in the kitchen often keep their back doors open to access the garden. However they leave them open most of the day at times. The same can be said for windows staying open when not in use.

It’s worth keeping doors and windows close to blinds closed when they’re not being used to stop dust particles, dirt, small pieces of debris and more drifting toward and sticking to blinds and shutters.

Keep dusting them

If people want their blinds to stay as clean as possible then it’s wise to brush over each slat with a dry cloth regularly to keep them clear of dust and dirt.

Depending on the materials used then cleaning tools should also be used – polish, for instance, on wooden shutters. Also, to reduce the build-up of dirt and dust, close the blinds and pull them up when they aren’t being used.

Choose materials carefully

As above the type of material people choose to have for their window blinds and shutters will have an impact on how often they have to be cleaned.

Some materials attract dust more regularly than others, for instance, while materials such as metallic shutters may have to be polished less frequently than others when it comes to keeping them clean.

Invest in conservatory cleaning

Blinds and shutters in the conservatory are a wonderful way to keep the home private and add style to one of the finest rooms in the house. But as conservatories are typically large, it can be tough keeping so many blinds clean on a regular basis.

Pink, Red/Orange and Blue Autumn Lipstick Sage in Fall

It’s the time of the year again when my flower gardens look beautiful and attractive. Thanks to my blooming pink, red/orange Autumn lipstick and blue sage for they give my garden some colorful life. Although there’s my yellow gold lantana and roses but they are not having as many flowers like the former flowers.

Truly it gives me joy seeing colors in my front yard, not to mention these flowers are looking healthy and could continue to bloom maybe until the first frost. I could also see some bulbs are growing, I thought it was weird, they were planted and meant to grow in Spring but there they are now, sprouting.

So what do you think of my flowers? Aren’t they pretty? Not forgetting, they are perennials, meaning they come back year after year and give me that joy and happiness every time they are these big and colorful!

Order Your Guitar Now

Whenever we see a commercial or show that has people playing a guitar or any musical instrument in it, my girls especially my first born would tell me to buy her this and that so she can also play it. But the problem is, she doesn’t know how to play anything yet. I think buying her a guitar will come after she knows the basics of playing guitar. Hopefully, next year I can have someone to teach her how and find that someone who can help me pick the right guitar suitable for her age.

As for now, I am browsing through this popular music online store and looking at the beautiful stuff they have available for sale. Are you planning or looking for a guitar to buy? You can visit this website and order now for that very guitar you have been wanting to get.

Saving Seeds for Planting Next Year

These are the seeds I have been saving for next year’s gardening. I got quite a lot of vegetables seeds namely; Asian spinach, okra, squash, long yard beans as well as flower seeds. It pains me to throw them away so might as well save them and send them out to a few friends who wish to have a vegetable garden too.

I may not be able to send them what I have but at least they will have some seeds to start. Nothing is more exciting and rewarding having your own food in your backyard, I tell you. That way, we can feed our children fresh homegrown organic veggies.

I would like to do the same to my friends, seeing them growing their own food and enjoying their plants as much as I do. That will be awesome to see them posting of their harvest too mid next year. I shall see who among them can follow what I do out here.

Playing Guitar at a Function/Event

Someone I know whose source of income is to play a guitar with his band in different functions or events such as weddings, birthdays, baptism or any kind of events. I heard that he stopped doing that for a while for he had his guitar amplifier stolen. Poor man! I opened up to him about this certain website that is selling amplifiers guitar and let him browse the entire site. He was thankful and amazed of the products they have online. He wished that he can buy one of those amplifiers that are on sale but he lives on the other side of the world. The cost of shipping will be double than the price of the item itself.
