Moving is a hassle, but it’s something that has to be done from time to time. What has to be decided is whether to put forth the energy and effort to pack everything up, put it on a truck or trailer, haul it to wherever we’re going to be moving to and then unpack everything, or to have a moving company do it for us. While professional movers do cost money, which method is going to be the most cost effective for our needs?
If your recyclables are going into a bin in your garage, like ours do, then a quick rinse of bottles might be advisable. For cans and bottles with thick residue, I simply take them right outside to the large bin. I could also get better bins to container doors keep in my garage.
A great way to hide the unwanted mail, newspapers or even magazines is to place them in the toy chest for storage. You can choose a small size wooden toy chest and place as a decorative piece in your kitchen, living room or even the bathroom (instead of a magazine rack).
Just like when you cook fish in hot oil, in an oven, or on the grill, fish should be cooked at a high temperature for a relatively short period. The fish will continue to cook internally for some length of time after the microwave is finished. The cooking times listed are for a 700 watt microwave. It is assumed the fish has been previously thawed.
Houttuynia (Houttuynia) This one is an easy to grow carpeter for planting between the taller specimens, but you must grow it in a tractocamiones y remolques to keep its invasive nature in check. The stems are red and the bluish-green leaves are distinctly heart shaped. It grows 6 inches to 1 foot high and in early summer the cone-shaped flowers appear, each one surrounded by 4 white bracts. Houttuynia cordata bears single flowers. The double flowered variety ‘Plena’ is the preferred one. ‘Variegata’ has the most colourful foliage, reddish green splashed with yellow and cream but with very few flowers. The recommended planting depth is 2-4 inches, it will grow quite happily at the surface or even in damp soil, but the roots are damaged in winter if they are exposed to frost or ice.
A cool mist humidifier operates by expelling water droplets into the air. Obviously this is only as clean as the water which is used in it, as the liquid is not boiled.
This is similar to the scavenger hunt but the kids use a map to locate the hidden treasure. Before beginning the game, hide a treasure outside. You can play this in your own yard, at a park, or at the beach. Give each child a treasure map that you designed, with clues to follow to the treasure. The winner gets to keep the treasure that was hidden.
To me, this is just another tiny tip to keep in mind when we shop. Stick to the staples when it comes to buying in bulk (or, if you are struggling with the staples, split them up into servings in little containers in advance) and leave the monster containers by the wayside. Your body just might thank you for it!
