Broccoli leaf stir fry

My friend and I were talking this morning about how people cook broccoli some only used broccoli head (flower) but there are a few who also cook broccoli leaf. We have broccoli garden and most of the time I only cooked the broccoli flower but then again lately I experimented and this morning I cooked stir fry broccoli leaf with steak. I took a picture after I cooked it. Can't wait to show it to my friend.

Hit the snooze a little more...

A good night's sleep revitalizes our tired body and getting rest during the night gives us more energy that helps us think clearly and move on with activities throughout the day. It's the basic necessities of life. It plays a major role in preparing our body and mind to become alert. Although there were many reasons why people don't get enough sleep, I believe that another reason why some people don't get the right amount of sleep they need is using a wrong kind of bed to sleep. Choosing a comfortable bed has a role in getting eight or more hours of sleep.

Based in my own experience before, I used to complain how bad my sleeps were when I get less than eight. So I and my husband agreed to replace our old bed then my sleep had change. I get more sleep now than before. I feel refreshed and ready to go in the morning.

This kind of bed will work perfectly also if you were thinking of changing or buying your new guest beds since it has these kind of styles that will fit in your kind of taste and more importantly the comfortability that you were looking for in beds.

What makes the rainbow colours in a soap bubble?

As a kid I used to play soap bubbles and I think everyone does at their younger age but even now I am still amazed by its rainbow color surface. The rainbow in a bubble is caused by light reflecting on the surface which create a wonderful color. My son was playing in the pool yesterday while mommy was blowing bubbles him trying to catch it. Its so funny when he held up his water gun and trying to shoot the bubbles and he squeals with delight as he awaits for it. This is a good picture of him in the baby pool.

The Chipmunks

It's so neat to watch the chipmunks running around in our backyard. It is so fun to watch them looking for food. Chipmunks are funny because they have a balancing problem when eating. Every time he stuffed his cheeks he would go a few steps, list to one side, then stop and dart for still another nut or two to balance the load. Chipmunks make their homes away from houses and barns and have tidy habits that's why they were tolerated even if they were rodents. One day we saw a chipmunk in our backyard just outside the shed. He went inside the small whole and disappeared from our sight. My son Jarred was so amazed by the little creature and ran towards the spot where it went. He was staring at the small whole waited and waited but no chipmunk comes out. He was a little disappointed by that. Maybe next time we will spot him again.

Kitchen Sinks

In today's world of renovations there's so many great products out there. We started renovating my mom and dad's old house, it was built in the 1940's. When it came to the kitchen we were all set with the maple cabinets and counter top after weeks of changing our minds. Originally we had picked out a stainless steel double basin drop in sink. But after my mom went for a visit to my aunt's house and discovered an under the counter sink mount that my aunt had installed she changed her mind on what type she liked. There are so many different undermount sinks to choose from to match up with any style counter top. It's amazing from stainless steel to the latest ingenuity the sink itself actually kills germs with its coating.

The wonders of peppermint

Our garden needs a lot of water especially during the hot days because the sand sucks the water in easily. On the other part of our garden we grow peppermint which my mom-in-law gave me last year. It gradually takes over the garden. They must have liked the water for they grow so fast. Peppermint plant is very useful so I don't want to eliminate them I just need to replant them on the far side so they won't take over and covered our other plants. Just for information that I want to share to you guys peppermint is excellent for promoting blood circulation or to take when you are not feeling well. Some brew the leaves as a tea or use them as a beverage garnish. It's a wonderful digestive aid- the reason after-dinner mints are so popular.

Baby Bedding

Three years ago I was one of the new moms who are so excited in preparing for my baby's wardrobe and completing the list of my baby's needs by far the most fun I have. Before my baby shower, friends and families asked what we want for the baby's needs and I thank them all for the generosity in giving tons of cute baby stuff. After checking on the gifts that we received from them we realized that we only need to buy a few things to complete our checklists. Since we have a hand me down antique crib from a friend all we need to do is buy the right Baby Bedding Sets. We choose a stylish Baby Bedding with colors and patters that we like and the ones that is safe and comfortable for the baby.

Tile murals for kitchens

What's your favorite place in your house? Mine is the kitchen because I love to cook and because this is the spot where I can be the boss. I am happy when after bugging my husband to replace our back splash with Tile murals, he finally made it. Now it's color and design looks more appealing since it stands out. Cleaning our backsplash is so much better also. I really admire the people who hand painted and created these unique decorative tiles.

Part II- scam

Okay remember the previous story that I posted here? This free trial Easy Google Profit Kit that I signed up for is really gets me. I am very upset about the whole ordeal them sending me a bill that says I owe them 72.21 this month so to resolve my problem I called the company. Waiting in line for about 10 minutes wasn't so bad when a customer service answered my call. I explained my present predicament and that I am requesting for my money back because I didn't sign up for the monthly subscription and I am not paying for that price. The representative told me that when I signed up for the 7 day free trial which costs me 1.95 it says there on the bottom of the page that I agree to paying the monthly charge for the subscription after 7 days if I didn't cancel. Waaaa...How come I didn't see it before? So I went back to their website and scroll down the page and there is the "terms and conditions" written in the smallest font size on earth at the very bottom of the page. They should write it more clearly to be visible. Lesson number one be aware what you are signing up for (lol!). Lesson number two: Always scroll down the page at the very bottom to make sure there is no hidden agenda in there.

Hummingbirds Are Coming!

If you want to be rewarded by beautiful sights of hummingbirds you can attract and bring them in your yard. The best way to attract them to come is to have a bird feeder hanging around for these fascinating creatures.

Picking the best hummingbird feeders for them are so much fun from choosing the bright colors then installing them. We have three different bird feeders on our property all at different window views. Such a wide selection of colors and different styles at Birdfeeders.com, it took us about forty five minutes to select our last one.

They're like aquariums in a sense they seem to give you that calm feeling in today's hectic world by just watching them. It is also fascinating to watch different kinds of hummingbirds every morning in our yard and telling their kind of species. I'm sure my mom in-law would be so happy to have one of those bird feeders. She had some bird feeders at their place and she loves watching birds visiting her every day. Birdfeeders are great gift for someone especial and perfect gift for all occasions.

We learned a lot their characteristics from online information's. For people who are also interested to find out the hummingbird's specie's specific information a great site to visit is the hummingbird library which you can find online.

Scam...again?

After I checked my account last night I didn't get to sleep at all after that thinking who the heck charged me 72.21 dollars in my account? I didn't recognize this unauthorized person charging me that big amount. For me working hard for that money and someone will just take it from my pocket is so frustrating. I don't really know where it came from. So I went through my inbox in my email and check for old transactions that I made. I've seen an old email dated a month ago me signing up for a free trial on "EASY GOOGLE PROFIT KIT" which promised me to earn easy google cash. I signed up for the trial which only charged me 1.95 but now it comes to me as a surprise when same company is charging me. When I signed up for the trial there wasn't a disclaimer on that page saying I should pay 72.21 after every month or I wasn't going to sign up for it. This serves as another lesson not just for me but for everyone to always check the background of the company your signing up for. I will try to dispute this case and I hope I can take my money back.

How to put a model ship inside a bottle

Watch this picture closely and figure out how to put this model ship inside this bottle. I know, its crazy because I can't figure that out myself until my husband told me. (lol)

Well here is the answer. The masts are on hinges and are pressed flat against the deck when the ship is passed through the neck of the bottle. Once inside, they are pulled upright by threads that are snipped off at the neck of the bottle and then glued. I think that's pretty smart.

Fun plate for my kid

The smile is there on my son's face when I served him breakfast. He loved using the plate and bowl that my husband's niece gave to Jarred. Jarred loved watching the show on TV "Bob the Builder" and he is so happy to see Bob on his plate. Can you believe that the plate is 17 years old? Now it is easy to get my son to eat his veggies. Having fun plates around definitely helped my son eat more.

Is broccoli leaves edible?

I was staring at our garden and the broccoli that we planted already had a tiny head on it but the broccoli is full of leaves. It makes me wonder if the leaves are edible. I observed that the leaves had similarities to collard greens which is full of fiber. One must be able to eat these. I'd like to find out before it come to waste.

Vacuum Pumps

My husband's friends at work called him as McGuiver because if problems arise at his work he always comes up with idea to fix that problem. At home, we don't like to see things come to a waste so he will do anything he can to make almost anything work. Our vacuum cleaner has helped our small business immensely. It makes my other job so much easier when I bring it at work and it was frustrating when one day it has been acting up. I hate to see it go the dumpster so my husband looked at it and found out that it needs a readjustment of rotary vacuum pumps. I was happy when after he repaired the vacuum I am back into business again.

Exterior shutters

It started when we decided to buy an old house and turn it into a two family house. Rented it and somehow work our way up to earn a little bit from it. After everything was all set and done it turned out that we need to inform the office so they could check if the house will pass through the inspection. So Daddy started all over again and inspect the house for some other fixer upper. Inside the house, everything was okay but some of the exterior shutters needs a replacement. Old age makes them deteriorate but after a few days everything looks great when Daddy installed the new ones. Now, our mind is at ease. We have a certification as proof that our house passed through the inspection.

Perfume on paper

Everyday free leaflet and magazines are in our mail box. Imagine how many trees are used to make these papers? Well anyhow, speaking of magazines the best part of receiving these is for me to collect the smelly perfume on the paper which was inserted on the magazine. They are pretty smart in catching every one's attention. They advertise their products by actually enclosing the fragrance in a magazine page. But have you wonder why when you rub or scratch the paper surface the perfume is released? What would be the method they used? Anyone? You may leave your message at the bottom of this post.

Why superglue sticks?

Back in my younger days at school, our teacher likes to give us a home work. The famous assignment that I remember is for us to make a card for Valentine's day so we can give it to our parents. To make that of course we need scissors, pencils, art paper and glue. Back then every penny is important to us. We have to be very thrifty. Instead of buying a glue I used the leftover rice boiled it until it's soft and very sticky. Believe it or not it really works but you have to wait half an hour to make it dry then it will really sticks. But these days when you compared rice paste to superglue the latter works like a miracle. Modern glue stick so well. Most glues are wholly synthetic. They dry quickly and form very strong bonds. The fastest acting ones are what they called super glues and instant glues which set in seconds. Amazing!
