"Homeschool Classroom: Decorating Your Home on a Budget"

We are a home-based family. We homeschool, we work from home and run a business from home, so we need functional spaces where we can do our responsibilities without feeling like everything is work. People get curious when we say we homeschool and want to know how our “school” looks like. I’m giving you a glimpse of our working spaces at home.

When you read or hear people say that you’re taking the world too seriously, they may be right. If you can’t at least make one person smile every day, rethink how you want to be remembered, in case you’re the first to go in a zombie apocalypse.

When Heather Von St. James got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to help her with a cause that meant the world to her as a mesothelioma survivor, I said yes right away. All of us could be affected by this invisible killer in our environment and the more we know about it the more we can help others understand why asbestos should be banned completely. Please read on and share.

Homemade Orange Soda {Because Sugar Will Kill You Faster Than You Think}

I know people who can’t live without soft drinks while also admitting that they know how dangerous these drinks are. A 12-ounce can of regular Coke, for example, has 39 grams of sugar -- that’s equivalent to 9 ⅓ teaspoons of sugar. You can ignore that, but consider also that that is way, way more sugar than you need for a day.

And no, kids can’t have as much sugar as they want just because they’re kids. Kids are human beings who acquire taste and develop diseases if we don’t train them early enough to stick to healthy options in food and drinks.

Why should parents consider having bird feeders at home? One, it is a great way to bring nature closer, especially at a time like this when children are wired and too connected with the virtual world.

After a few weeks, our new friends finally started coming. I said we would only take a few pictures of them and we will leave them be. They come early in the morning and then again at lunch time and late in the afternoon. One of them, I noticed, likes to come in our house once in a while and spend a few seconds with our reclining Buddha.I believe that having birds visit your home is a rare opportunity, and one that should not be missed.
