All about me and mine- Answer 4

A few weeks ago I opened my blog up to you to allow you to ask me questions about me that you would love to know so today I am sharing Andrea's questions 

ANDREA: I'd love to know - what is your favorite book in the Bible?  to be absolutely honest I love Psalms and Proverbs, no matter what you are going thru, you can be uplifted and encouraged by God's word. 
Some of my favorite verses in Psalms are:

  Psalm 23- the Lord is my shepherd,  meaning he watches over me, he protects me and loves me 
Psalms 5: 22-Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

Psalms 121: 1-5

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 

2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. 
3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; 
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 
5 The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand; 

Proverbs 3:5-6 
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 
6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 18:10-
The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

There are so many more I could share but my break is over so I best be headed out. 


Being a home owner

We bought our first home last summer, so we have spent one year in it.  It is fun to find the perfect d├ęcor, wall colors, art, furniture, blinds, curtains, rugs etc.

Instead of doing it all at once, it is recommended to buy 2 great pieces that you just love and cant live without per year
Shop around, don’t grab something just because you are tired because 6 months down the road you will regret it, shop til you find the perfect piece

Blinds or Curtains: I am not a curtain person, I mostly enjoy my blinds and some of the windows in my house are oddly shaped and I went looking for some blind websites and I came across Velux 
Some of the ones that caught my eye

They have all you need for blinds and for any room and what I truly love is that you can buy extra cloth to go with the blind for the spring cleaning :) 

Are you a blind or a curtain person? 


Gift Giving

Today I want to talk to you about something that I am sure probably frustrates every newlywed at gift opening time.
Gifts, presents or whatever you want to call it can be stressful for any one, when you are buying it, I struggle with it as I want to give a WOW gift each time. I am in a busy wedding season, my best friend got married back in June and my son gets married on Aug 21, I was matron of honor for my best friend’s wedding, so I wanted to give her the best gift.. I struggled with it, had no idea what to get her, I googled for hours to find something for her as she did not have a registry which is fine as they had a house together and didn’t need anything, so they got a lot of money, quilts, frames, that kind of thing

My son on the other hands went a different route and he signed up for a registry. So when I was looking for a bridal shower gift, I went to the registry and within 5 mins I had a present picked for them, I also know what I am getting for the wedding gift.
If you are a bride to be, you need to check out Zola for all your wedding needs…  They have everything for your home in one place, you can do a wedding registry in a few hours if you wanted to keep it all one place, plus lots of worthwhile hints and tips on there. 

That being said let’s talk Budgets.. you can spend however much you want
So, Really, How Much Should You Spend On a Wedding Gift?

SO my question is when you go a wedding,  how do you determine what to giv Do you stick to the registry or do you give something that has worked well for you, I know some people like to give their favorite kitchen gadget... for me, I would prefer to stick to registry as you know that is something they want or need. 


5 tips to getting around when you have a disability

Getting around when you are disabled does not have to be a burden. There are tools and resources that are available to help you get around with ease. Whether you are planning to travel or are just navigating through your daily routine, there are ways in which you can make your life easier. This article will provide some tips on getting around when you have a disability.

Consider how you will get around. If you are in a position where you are challenged by your mobility, you may want to purchase an electric scooter than can help you get around. While it is not a car, the scooter can still help you get to places that you would be unable to access in a standard wheelchair. For more information and to see options that are available, check out electric scooters for sale.

Plan ahead. If you are setting off on an adventure and you have heard that the destination you are going to has limited accessibility, it is important to consider this before you arrive. Be sure to plan ahead and take into consideration that you may run into some challenges due to your disability. Try not to let the disappointment damper your spirits and focus on what you need to do in order to be able to enjoy your day. By planning ahead you can be prepared and you will know what to expect. Getting to a place and learning that the accessibility or the accommodations that you need are unavailable can be disappointing and quite a letdown. Avoid all of this by planning ahead.

Plan your route. If you are traveling, be sure to map out your route. If you are unfamiliar with an area, you want to make sure that you know the areas of the town that make it accessible.
Have a backup plan. Things can go wrong at any time. There could be a road closure or perhaps part of a building is closed or the elevator is broken. You can never plan for every single thing that could happen but is best to be able to think on your feet and come up with a backup plan. Whether it be enlisting the help of others who will be traveling with you or signing up for an app that provides helpful directions, there are ways to have a backup plan in case something was to go wrong. Sometimes backup plans end up being better than the original plan.

When traveling stay in accessible accommodations. When you are traveling to another state or country, it is important that you make the hotel staff aware of your needs. Be sure to book a room that offer features that are accommodating. For example, if you are blind but not deaf, perhaps the staff will provide you with a room that has a door bell so that people can ring it to get your attention. 

Another great asset would be if the room offered braille communication from the hotel staff.
There are many ways to get around when you have a disability and they do not have to be overwhelming. 

Time, patience, and perseverance will help you find a good routine.
