When I had my house refurbishing, I ensured that my kitchen get that tidy and clutter free appearance. The plates, glasses, and other kitchen utensils are placed in shelves and organizers. The organizers inside the shelves were made to be pulled out with less effort. Getting and putting back the plates and other kitchen utensils are made easy by simply pulling out the organizers which were installed using sliding rulers. My regrets that I was not able to plan out for a sliding door in my kitchen. But, soon I will be able to fulfill this plan when I have my house repair. I do not know how this is done but I read about this sliding door gear for apartments that I can recommend to my foreman. My house repair will start after the house blueprint shall have been finished by the one I commissioned to do it.
Last weekend I had fever and flu. It started with a sore throat and body aches. Good thing my home remedies were effective. I was able to attend the out of town conference in Subic. My home remedies were:
1. Plenty of fluid intake.
2. Whole day rest.
3. Hot chicken soup.
4. Nasal decongestion by inhaling hot vapor from boiling water.
5. Took paracetamol.
After two days, I was up and about again.

By heart, I am a music-minded person and so are my children. Way back when my family's budget was tight I settle for the cheap and the not so quality stereo system. It was better than nothing. I did not know much then about quality stereo systems. I gained more experience about it when I joined the choir group in my Office. I listen to how our music operator would converse to his friend officemates about the quality sound of stereo systems. I came to know that an adam audio is a quality studio monitor speaker that delivers quality audio from a compact design. For a quality-conscious user why not look this up.
The movie marathon I have planned for today did not materialize. I had four new DVD family movies to watch but the power outage constrained my family's enjoyment. It costs me less to watch movies at home. We get the same movie experience like the display and sensurround for sound effects at home. I simply hook in my LCD (liquid crystal display) projector to a laptop, connect the jack from my laptop to the music mixer and speaker for the audio and voila, we are in for comfy movie entertainment. We can watch a series of movies, pause whenever we want for a break and repeat the movie all over when we want to. The whole family stays and watch together. This is what I always look forward to during weekends. I hope there will be no more power outage during weekends.
Every year there are always parties to plan about. What with all birthday celebrations, excluding mine because I am not planning to hold a special celebration for me this year, planning ahead will smoothen out every detail and ease away all creases and jitters during the day of celebration. It would not look well if what I have in mind, of holding only one celebration for all my children's' birthdays, will be followed. My children do not conform so I won't bother thinking about it. It pays to plan ahead so as early as now I already have the checklist of things to do. I do this so I could prepare the amount of money I should need for each birthday celebration. In this year's birthday celebrations, the venue will just be at home. This gives me more leeways on food, decors and exciting stuff preparations for less money than holding it in a rented venue. I find it challenging also to transform the house space for the birthday reception into an elegant and cozy party area. I can do this by simply choosing the right linens, flowers and the interplay of the linen colors with the light. Picking the quality linen fabrics, table runners, tablecloths, table skirting, chair covers and sash is very essential. My standard of home party linens is similar to that of custom linen rentals premiertablelinens.com. Quality linen and fabrics for tables and chairs are found here. Tablecloths and table linens are for rent and or for sale in this site. For me, I do not like to buy new tablecloths and linens as the storage after the party is a problem. I would rather rent so I can always pick the fresh and good looking linens and tablecloth. The internet is a rich source of ideas and concepts for party decors and arrangements so from food to physical arrangements and other stuffs the parties I will be planning will surely go best.
What do you do in case of a thirteen-hour power outage on a Sunday like today? This was a pre-announced power outage so I had preparedness activities done. Last night, I have fully charged the electric fans, the flashlights, laptops and cellphones and mosquito swat. I have prepared the candles and anti-mosquito lotion, too. The power outage was announced to be from 6am to 6pm but it did not get back until 7:30pm. The longer I wait the more I became anxious. The electric fan was good only for three hours so the rest of the time I did some manual fanning. The laptops power went off so fast. The flashlights illuminated all the parts of the house. The mosquito swat did a perfect mosquito killing performance. The mosquito lotion repelled the pesky mosquitoes in my skin. The whole time from 5:30 pm to 7:30pm I was killing the mosquitoes inside the house with the mosquito swat. The pesky mosquitoes thrive in a hot and humid evening but not with my mosquito swat. They puff to death when hit by the swat. It was a relief when finally the power outage got over and it was time to eat a sumptuous dinner served hot. This power outage reminds me to contact the generator set technician to troubleshoot the problem of its malfunction so that next time the power outage happen, we will still have the convenience of using our house utilities for comfy living.

It is amazing that many people are more talented than the others. Some are born musicians. Some are made. My uncle who was born blind was a born musician. He can play any instrument without much effort. Maybe it is in my family's genes to be musicians only that some of my kins lack the practice and effort to excel in this craft. Like for my two sons, how I wish they could both play the marimba as there are only very few people who know how to play marimba. They could be distinct and unique from their peers. I would have invested in acquiring different musical instruments and get the latest marimba for sale in the net. Not that I am not proud of my sons for the achievements to the art of music they have done this far, but I would have been the proudest mom on earth to have sons who know how to play all musical instruments there are.
I am afraid my other blog is near its deletion. Time and again, I forgot to pay the cost of renewing its domain name. Many times have I gone to the mall but dumb me I forgot to pay at the payment center. I am confronted with the dilemma of letting it go and give its natural death or contact the server host and ask the cost of reviving it back to life? It has not been receiving any paid tasks lately due to its low page rank. The cost of its domain renewal is quite higher than the renewal cost of this site. I hope to seek the solution to this dilemma, soon.
