Indoor House Plants That Aren't Too Much Trouble

Guest post written by Sidney Brooks

I remember when I was a little girl, one of my household chores was to water all of our houseplants. It seemed like a huge task then because we had several of them, even though now in retrospect it probably wasn't that much work. So I had a lot against houseplants for a long time because of that. But I'm tired of feeling that way and decided that I would just take the plunge and buy some houseplants for our home anyway.

I went online to figure out some of the houseplants that would require the least amount of maintenance. While I was looking through that, I saw the website I looked through it some and after that I decided to switch over our home internet access to the service.

Some of the indoor house plants are supposedly the ones that require the least amount of maintenance. But I also fot a few that require a little bit more just as kind of a test to see how much maintenance I can handle with the plants.

A New Blog?

I know I said things before that I will not add or create another blog. There was a time that I completely pay no attention to my blogs. I have no desire to continue writing or sharing anything. I put all my attention to my husband and job.

But then before I get too busy, I started to revise a blog which I created July 2008. Imagine the trial and error I made just to get the right password to access this old blog. I would like to introduce my food and travel blog - Flavorful Exploration. I know I can't travel right now to show you spectacular places I want to visit but in time, I will be able to share something in this "old-new" blog I am launching. So come join the fun where food and travel is my adventure. 

Consult Professionals

I don't like people who drives so fast. They can caused an accident which lead to any injury such as whiplash or broken arms. If you have been to an accident and you need to file a case for that person who caused you the injury, there's a dedicated team that can handle your case to help you. The professional representation and personal guidance will lead you to get a support for claim. Whiplash calculator shows guidelines for each particular personal injury. In United Kingdom, thousands of people made a claim for whiplash. The compensation can be given to a person with severe disabilities in the range of £38,175 to £76,350. Check out the website for more information.

A Blessed Easter!

Only God could have created
All the loveliness of spring.
Made the bough to bud and blossom.
Taught the robin how to sing.

Only God could have remembered,
Through the winter, cold and gray,
How to renew the earth with beauty
And give us the Easter Day.

Wishing you a Blessed Easter Season! myspace graphic comments

Hoping the Easter Bunny brings you lots of delicious goodies. May the spirit of hope that Easter brings help you find contentment in little things and restore your faith in the Lord above who gave His life for the ones He loves. Happy Easter, everyone!

Fabulous Sinks and Faucets

After a long day at work, I still manage to clean our bathroom in just five minutes. I make sure that our bathroom is the cleanest among any other places in our house. Our bathroom needs a minor renovation. The need of a new Undermount Sink is really expected as soon as possible. The old sink that we had is rusty at the bottom and stained with soap scum that cannot be removed by thorough cleaning, plus some scratches on the side. No matter what I do to clean it, it still the same.

I check Undermount Sinks online that will be perfect for our bathroom. Maybe I should find a perfect faucet that will accentuate to my fabulous sink.

What Season is Your Soul?

You Are Spring

You can't help but be influenced by the world around you. 
You are open to change and growth.

You are optimistic and trusting. 
You expect the best from people and usually get it.

You are autonomous and fulfilled. 
You know how to make yourself happy.

You are sweet and angelic. 
You try your best to never harm or hurt others in any way.

Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday. Sierra and I went to church and attend the Palm Sunday Mass. The Sunday before Easter is know as Palm Sunday. It is the beginning of the Holy Week. It celebrates Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem at the back of a donkey. The people from the streets, welcomed Him with palm branches.

It was also nice to see some good friends at church today. Sierra is excited for the Easter Sunday. Lots of activities plus the fun of egg hunting. We can't wait!

    Chic in Black Monday

    mytotsexactly CIB Monday

    Here's another fun meme - Chic in Black Monday. What is so magical about black things? Black is the most misunderstood color. In some cultures, black symbolizes something bad. The color black convey elegance, mysterious, sexy and sophisticated. It goes well with almost any color. Black is beautiful, gorgeous, exquisite and chic! 

    Featuring is my black stockings and coat that goes well with my red accessories. I was wearing a black dress too. The photo was taken last year (2010) during our Valentine's date in Tyler, Texas. We ate at Red Lobster and watched a movie - From Paris With Love. Join us every Monday and showcase fashionable and chic black.

    Happy Birthday, My Sister! myspace graphic comments

    God sent us to be sisters. So we can be best of friends. A sister is someone who is caring and sharing. A sister can understand things you never said. She can understand pain which is not visible to anyone. I love my sister. I wish you the best in this world. Happy birthday! I miss you and see you real soon.

    A Woman's Thing

    Alright, leave it all to the women. They're the one who budget everything in a household. They're the one one who maintains the cleanliness inside and outside of the house and most of all, they do the grocery shopping. I spent my half day doing some grocery shopping today. Though the weather is still not cooperating but the good thing is, the snow are slowly melting down. I can see that most of the snow are gone and it won't be long now we can see green grass for the next coming days. So, we can go shopping for new plants and some vegetables to be planted in the garden. Oh spring and summer, where art thou?

    Get Into Shape

    Every year, I make it a point that I get back in shape. I have been watching TV ads about diet meals and diet pills that will make a person lose weight under the lose weight program. It has been a struggle to lose weight. Maybe I should start soon by watching videos of HCG Diets on YouTube. I can get ideas how everything work. I admit that I love to eat and sometimes, thinking about food makes me forget about working out. HCG Diets might give me great results on losing weight. There has been a lot of people who testify how Diet HCG work for them. I should give this a try.

    Signs of Spring myspace graphic comments

    It has been two weeks now since the start of the Spring that I had been whining and looking for signs of real spring. I woke up this morning and my husband said that spring is starting to show. He saw about five to ten robins in our backyard and thousands of snow geese flying headed north. Though there's still some snow, we have high hopes that it will melt soon. 

    Spring is peeking and it won't be long now that we see some trees starting to bloom, colorful flowers to add beauty and critters will come from hibernation. The cabin fever should stop now and we can finally go outside without freezing to death. We have been waiting for this day, and it will be our moment to have a good time and celebrate spring season!
