The Striking Beauty of The Handwoven Beni Ourain Rug ( Momimhar posted on May 30th, 2019 )

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. Every single person who buys these rugs has the satisfaction of knowing they are bringing something home they can have around for many years. All such rugs are made with beautiful materials that are wonderfully durable at the same time. Each rug has been by experts to stand out in a room and show off the owner’s personal sense of discernment and love of craft.

The Right Rug Today

The Moroccan Berber rug is the right rug today for so many reasons. It is one rug that people can count on in order to create a room that everyone loves. Those who love rooms that show off who they are and demonstrate how much they love beauty find this a good choice for any room. The rugs work well with other kinds of beautiful objects such as classic sofas and works of art. Each one has lots of marvelous and yet understated color, helping it come to life in all the right ways. Each one is a work of art by itself. It’s also a work of art that shows off the lovely qualities of other works of art in all rooms. This is why the rug remains one that is truly popular for home decor all over the globe.

Simple Yet Effective Home Remedies For Cough And Colds ( Momimhar posted on December 15th, 2017 )

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.

Keep a Humidifier Handy In Your Home ( Momimhar posted on January 9th, 2017 )

It is always during the fall and winter seasons when allergies hit my household.  I know it is normal but I admit it is very irritable.  What should we do to reduce or perhaps prevent allergies and sickness from getting worse? Stock up allergy medicines in our medicine cabinets, exercise more weekly, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink lots of water daily, and get a lot of rest whenever there’s a chance.  These are very helpful.  But winter time is not very friendly when it comes to health issues.  This is the time we get struck with common respiratory sickness like cough and colds.

Air-conditioning sometimes doesn’t help on this depending on the level of humidity inside our homes.  I am glad that the use of a humidifier can help balance the humidity level in the house.  The very first humidifier my dear husband and I bought three years ago was an invisible mist humidifier.  A couple of things I didn’t like about that one were buying filters and loud sound in the room.

I am thankful that Influenster has given me the opportunity to try Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier for free.  It was one of the amazing gifts I received in December 2016.  It came just in time because we needed a new humidifier in the house.  We haven’t had a cool mist humidifier before.

Humidifier Demineralization Cartridge (TWT500) to help prevent white dust.

Pros

Quiet operation

Easy Fill

Easy to clean

Lightweight

No filters needed

Requires demineralization cartridge (hard water)

Vapor pads slots

Cons

Bigger than the average-sized humidifiers

A little pricey

If you want a quiet humidifier and you don’t want to buy filters more often, I recommend Vicks EasyFill Cool Mist Humidifier.  As for me and my household, this device is very helpful.  I have a child who is very sensitive to low humidity so I say this product is a keeper.

 

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing and review purposes.

Winter In Texas – Snow Today ( Momimhar posted on January 6th, 2017 )

Collecting snow for a snowball.

We got a bit of snow this afternoon around 1:00 P.M. here in North Texas.  My darling daughter kept telling me since this Tuesday about the possibility of snow because her teacher said so.  I checked the weather forecast and it was clear all week and the freezing days are Thursday to Saturday.  I found no chance of  snow or rain whatsoever.

We lit up the fireplace yesterday because it’s freezing.

But when I was entering Walmart store to buy a pair of mittens for K close to one o’clock this afternoon, I saw flurries falling from the sky.  I thought it won’t last long.  As soon as I got home, the flurries turned into snow.  So when my darling daughter arrived from school,  we put on our winter coats, winter boots, and mittens then went outside and play in the snow.

Snow covering the weeds in the flower beds.

The water in the bird bath got frozen.

Throwing snow at me. 🙂

You know children are naturally curious individuals.  They always check on little things wherever they go, and whatever they do they will always ask  questions.  And we should be keen and ready to answer their inquiries.  One of the things that amazes them is snow.  What is snow made of? Why does it snow?  We know that snow is composed of snowflakes.  So K was checking the snow and saw snowflakes formation.  She said to me,

“Mommy, snowflakes have different shapes right?

“Yes,” I said.

Naturally formed snowflakes differ from one another through happenstance of formation. (Wikipedia.org)

She found two and pointed at them so I can see.  I won’t even see them immediately, those tiny little snowflakes on the plastic chair. 🙂

Two tiny snowflakes. K’s pointing at one of them.

We had fun playing in the snow.  K’s most favorite thing was when she found two beautiful snowflakes.

Boots – Crocs (gift from Na-Na and Paw-Paw)

Mittens – Faded Glory
