Christmas decorating is one of our favorite things to do and it’s the time of year again to do so. As soon as we got home from the Thanksgiving Day visit with the family we helped our daddy bring all the Holiday decorations down from the attic. I bought a new Christmas tree from Target when it went on special last year. From $69.00 for a 7-foot tall tree, it went down to $25 with free shipping.
Darling daughter loves decorating our Christmas tree. I let her put some of the ornaments on the Christmas tree while I look for the special ones I kept in my closet. “Good luck,” said the hubby. 😀 Fortunately, I found it in no time. DD took a break from decorating so I took the opportunity to rearrange the ornaments and finish up trimming the tree.
Presenting our Christmas tree for 2019. We’re so delighted with the result. Ninety five percent of the hanging ornaments were from the previous years’. I didn’t buy any new ones this year.
This morning we saw our scout elf on the mantle. Pinkie Elf is back. Darling daughter was wondering when will Pinkie be back. She was talking about her elf during Thanksgiving Break. DD went to sleep happy.
It was a very pleasant morning today. The temperature this morning was in the 70s so I decided to spent some time enjoying it on the front porch. My dear husband came out of the house from the garage and checked the yard. He said the grass needs mowing. He didn’t want to wait for the coming weekend to mow because those grass stalks will two feet tall by then.
“Good idea,” I told him. “Also, the feeder needs a platform so the birds can at least perch on to peck on the seeds. I saw a small bird earlier having a hard time bending its head to get some seeds in there,” I added.
“It’s a cheap bird feeder from Home Depot and the maker I guess didn’t think about it,” he said.
So he got a piece of wood and trimmed it to a size where the bird feeder could be glued with more space for the birds to perch. Hearing the noise in the garage, my curious darling daughter came out. When she learned about the plan, she volunteered to help. She helped gluing the bird feeder onto the square wood. After an hour, they refilled the feeder and hung back to the tree. Teamwork makes it work. 🙂
I was just watching my loves while they work–savoring the happiness in simple things.
Beauty takes a great many forms. One form is that of items that have been by hand by experts. This the case for the wonderful Berber rug. The Moroccan Berber rug begins as a handful of very fine wool in the mountains of Morocco. After that, using techniques that have been developed over centuries, the wool is turned into a Beni Ourain rug of unique and impressive quality. The wool that is used in the creation of such rugs is wool that yields results that have been sought after for many years and continues to be sought after today by so many. Of all the many qualities that such rugs have, it is perhaps their very beauty that is why they are such a wonderful addition to any modern home.
So Many Different Facets
Every single Berber rug has so much to admire. Each rug is made from fibers that begin wool grown in a totally natural environment. As such, a Moroccan Berber rug offers a great deal for every person to appreciate. The rugs are created by carefully taught experts who pass their skills down to each generation. Each group of weavers of a Beni Ourain rug is one who was taught by someone else who spent years mastering the craft and true art of making rugs. When they take the wool in front of them, they are able to see how to make this wool come to life. The results are rugs that are sought after by people who love high quality.
A Rug for the Ages
Once the Beni Ourain rug has been completed, it’s a rug for today and for all the years to come. It’s also a rug that adds impressive beauty to any room.

I had a very busy week…’know why? My darling daughter was sick for four days and I had to sub in a Kindergarten class today.
Sometimes, it is very depressing when our kids are sick. We don’t get much sleep at night. I myself keeps waking up checking my darling daughter’s temperature every couple of hours. When she is coughing at night, I wake up also and try to soothe her coughing. I feel restless. I worry a lot.
Her congestion is not too bad this time, though. I am relieved about that. No severe nosebleeds either. We are keeping ourselves as healthy as possible because of the flu season and I heard many cases of it this year. Last winter was quite a challenge for us, health wise.
There are also absences at school due to sickness. Teachers are getting the flu. Some students go to school even though they are not feeling well. They should rest at home for three days, at least, if they are coughing and running a fever. I just feel bad hearing some kids coughing non-stop in the classroom. 🙁
Home remedies to soothe the cough and colds are not that difficult. I always give my child freshly made lemonade or Calamansi juice daily. At night, before going to bed, I rub Vicks Vapor Rub on her back. I put a little amount of Petroleum Jelly in her nostrils and spray Saline Nasal Spray to keep her nose moisturized because she is prone to nosebleeds. The linings in her nose are thin. Our humidifier runs full blast overnight. It helps keep the moisture in the air (humidity) in her bedroom. My husband and I keep this routine every night diligently. I think it is effective.

Safe for Use in Home Decoration
People living with various allergies are particularly choosy when it comes to home interior décor materials as animal products are likely to bring them nightmares due to high amounts of allergens. Cowhide rugs present the best choice ever for any person who wishes to decorate their home using animal products that will not bring about any form of allergens. Cowhide rugs are the best option since their natural fibers do not encourage the accumulation of dust that triggers their allergies.
