May 18 – Visit Your Relatives Day

 
Today is Visit Your Relatives Day!

Today it’s easy to lose touch with our relatives. A lot of us only get to see our relatives around the holidays or maybe not at all if you live far away.

Either way, we need our families and they need us. They are our support system through hard times. They are there for celebrations and to create family memories during the important milestones.

Celebrate this day by sending a relative a free ecard, calling a relative who lives far away or stop by and visit a relative you haven’t seen for a while.

Get Your Cleaning On

 
*****I posted this during the holidays and was asked to re-post to share the earth friendly cleaning supplies recipes below. We all should be conscience of what we are doing to the earth*****
 
 
 
I really didn’t want to write this because I hate cleaning, I know it has to be done, and I do it, but I hate it.

I thought my cleaning recipes might help everyone get their house ready for their Holiday guests.

Recently I have started to use homemade products to clean. It’s much cheaper than store-bought and they do just as good of a job and sometime even a better job.

Some of these recipes may not smell nice all the time but will dissipate when they dry. I’m writing this in hopes that you all will feel better knowing you did something good for the environment.

The environment is really the reason I started making my own cleaning products. I hear all the talk on the news and talk radio about how we need to take care of our environment. All that made me think about what my niece and nephew and their kids and so on, will have to look forward to in later years. Will they be able to pack a lunch of tuna sandwich’s and grape soda, like my mom and dad did for my family and go to the lake for the day and spend quality time together? Will there be water in the lake for them to even enjoy? Will gas be $8.00 a gallon?

It all starts with us and trickles down to the generations. If our kids see us trying to be green and recycle they will too and so on.

These are my favor recipes.  I use them weekly, if not daily.

All-Purpose cleaner – dissolve ½ cup washing soda in a bucket of warm water.
USE: Kitchen/Bathroom – wash surface, then rinse. Not recommended for aluminum surfaces or no-wax floors. Cleans walls, counter tops, refrigerators, appliances, tiles, sinks, tub/shower, and toilet bowls.

Baby clothes – Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to the laundry rinse cycle.
USE: Baby clothes – Helps break down uric acid and soapy residue, leaving baby clothes soft and fresh.

Bathroom mold cleaner – Mix 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) and 2 parts water.
USE: Spray on areas with mold; wait at least one hour before rinsing or using shower.
Warning: Be careful with hydrogen peroxide; it can take the color out of fabrics

Dishwasher Detergent – mix 1 cup baking soda with 1 cup borax (use sparingly). You can use 2 packs of sugar-free lemonade, if desired, for scent.
USE: 2 – 4 Tbsp per load, dependent on how big the load.

Floor Cleaner – Add ½ cup vinegar to ½ gallon warm water & mop. No need to rinse!
USE:To clean no-wax floors.

Multi-Purpose “Greener” Cleaner – Add the following ingredients to a 16-oz spray bottle, shake well: soap (flakes, powder, or liquid), 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar, 16 ounces (2 cups) water.
USE: Multi-Purpose

**DISCLAIMER: PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP ALL CLEANERS, EVEN GREEN,  AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS**

National Corn Chip Day

I just love these off the wall holidays.
 
I absolutely love corn chips, a snack food of cornmeal either fried or baked. I love the aroma and flavor of roasted corn. Typically they are seasoned with salt. Be very careful of the salt though.
 
C.E. Doolin entered a cafe in San Antonio, TX in 1932 and purchased a bag of corn chips. Later he discovered the manufacturer of the chips wanted to sell his business.
Mr. Doolin purchased the recipe for $100 and began to sell Fritos Corn Chips from his Model T Ford. The rest is history!
 
To celebrate this holiday enjoy some corn chips with:
 
Easy Guacamole
 
Salsa
 
Nachos
 
Taco Salad
 
Frito Pie

Order Your Valentines Cookies Early

This is a day of love to tell the special people around us how much we love them.

We show them by sending cards, candy, flowers and gifts. We can celebrate by taking a loved one to dinner.


Valentines cookies should also be a part of the celebration. Valentines cookies are the perfect sweet to send to someone special.

This is a perfect idea for the hard to buy for. Cookies are always a way to put a smile on someone’s face.

Chocolate Cake Day is today.

Chocolate lovers UNITE!!!

Prepare to indulge yourself.

Today gives you the OK to treat yourself to your favorite chocolate cake.

This, unfortunately, has not been declared a national holiday by Congress but, it is a day that chocolate lovers will gladly celebrate.

The 3 objectives of today are to bake a chocolate cake, decorate it and then eat it.  Of course if you’re to busy then eating some cake will do.  Yummy!!!

I was unable to find any information as to who created this day or even the origin.  This leads me to believe it was created by a bakery or a card company.

Oh well, however it came about whose gonna argue with chocolate. 🙂

Enjoy.

Enjoy my blog.  I love feedback so please let me know if there is information you’d like me to add or delete.  It is very much appreciated.
