The long winter is now behind us and we need to start the spring yard cleanup so we can have that beautiful yard all the neighbors will be envious of. This means cleaning the hedge and the bushes, trim the dead limbs, get rid of the leaves we were too lazy to clear in the fall and give our front walkway area a fresh Eucalyptus layer of mulch from “Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch”.

If you live in Florida I recommend using “Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch”? This is because it is 100% natural and made from eucalyptus trees that grow faster than the traditional Cypress trees. The mulch is grown on plantations and is free of construction, demolition, pallet, or other waste material. Also this prevents from weeds growing naturally and helps your soil to retain moisture longer.

The Eucalyptus Mulch is the best option for your landscape because it is good to create a sustainable gardening and plantation grown Eucalyptus this is considered a renewable resource because it re-grows up to 4-times faster than Cypress. Eucalyptus Mulch is guaranteed free from any construction, demolition, pallet, or other waste materials and this helps conserve soil moisture and moderate soil temperature. And it also helps support the Florida local economy, because it is 100% Florida grown.

All you need to get started is some Fresh Plants and/or flowers of your choice (pick some bright colored plants/flowers to line in front of larger bushes and/or around trees), Good clean soil, Shovel Gardening Gloves, Post hole digger, Rake, Wheel Barrel and Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch.


If you do not live in Florida you should consider Scotts Nature Scapes mulch as an option for their landscaping needs this spring time season and this comes in 3 different colors: Classic Black, Sierra Red, and Deep Forest Brown and they’re natural forest products - no waste wood and come in a variety of textures. Scotts Mulch helps create a groomed landscape all year long. You can find it at your local hardware in with the gardening supplies.

Finally We Have Sunshine Today



We finally have sunshine today here in Michigan. Hope it will stay this way, so that we can start enjoying our spring time season. I have seen green leaves on trees and flowers growing already. I know that there are people that are complaining about our weird weather in Michigan. We either have snow or rain and we are already in middle of April which is supposed to be spring time and it feels like winter still.

We have so much rain and moisture this month of April but instead of complaining we have to be thankful that we have this moisture as what the sayings says that April shower brings May flowers. Having the rain and the moisture this should be good for the plants and crops to grow perfectly. 

Farmers might be happy to have this kind of weather, this will help them to have a good harvest this year for the fruits and vegetables that grow here in Michigan. Everybody is looking forward for a nice weather so that we can start our outside project this spring. 

I think we have enough for the snow and cold weather already for our winter months. We are ready for spring time and we need some sunshine to brighten our day and not feeling depressed because it’s gloomy and cold outside.  The cold weather is what holds us up from being active and doing our spring time projects and plans. Hope it will start to warm up this week and enjoy on what is left on this spring time season.

I absolutely love to travel but one of the worst experiences with traveling is getting to and from the airport, and finding that perfect parking space.

Because of this many times I have almost missed a flight because I could not find a parking spot and when I finally found one, I was running while trying to lug a 50 pound luggage bag.

4 Things You Didn't Know About Walking

First it keep you sharp. Brisk striding seems to partially reverse age-related memory loss and may enhance mental function according to research from University of Illinois.

Second it's most successful in the morning. Calling all birds: An informational survey showed that the 75 percent of people who worked out early in the day stuck with their programs, while only a quarter of the night time walkers did.

Third it doesn't require expensive shoes. No need to break the bank on sneaks. They found that the cheaper shoes wear as good as expensive ones- sometimes better.

Fourth, every steps counts, Of course you should count those 30 steps to the bathroom. Research from University of Michigan shows that people who log every step are more likely to enjoy walking- and stick with it longer than those who just track the steps they take during walks that last 10 minutes or longer.

Remodel Your Kitchen With A Kiran Spot Rest Faucet

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Moen, Incorporated for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Many of us like to do home remodeling so we feel like we have a brand new house to live in or to customize our home to fit our very own taste. Recently I decided to take on the project of remodeling our kitchen. This included a new style sink and faucet fixture. This meant I need to go look at all the new styles available and decide which would fit my remodeled kitchen and most of all my tastes.

What I came a crossed was amazing. There were so many styles to choose from, but the style that caught my attention was made by MOEN and the model was the Kiran Spot Resist one-handle pulldown kitchen faucet. The one-handle pull down kitchen faucet is a great fit to our newly remodeled kitchen. This faucet is stainless steel so it will match the appliances we have already updated, and the ones we will update in the future. It will also match the knobs on our cabinets, so I think it will go great with the design of my kitchen.

The Kiran Spot Resist faucet is spot and fingerprint resistant, so it will look clean with less effort. Also the Moen Kiran Spot Resist Kitchen Faucet wand’s aerated stream and powerful cleaning rinse is sure to make after-dinner cleanup quicker and easier

For more information on the Moen Kiran Spot Resist Kitchen Faucet just stop by MOEN’s website or you can see it in person by visiting your nearest Lowe’s Hardware Store. If you like it as much as I do Lowe’s is the place to purchase one today. And don’t forget to check out Moen on Facebook and give them the old thumbs up!

Start Thinking Our Spring Chores



Most of us love spring and we are looking forward for this season especially that we are tired of shoveling the snow and bundle it up every day during winter months. I don’t mind the cold that we have once in a while during this spring that we have but I am still looking forward that it will gets warmer again.

Spring is the good season to start doing our household and outside chores that we can’t do during winter months. We need to have a checklist of our things to do during spring in order get done and organize our schedule.  We have so many things to do and get things done when we have schedule and figure it out ahead of time.

We always heard people saying that it is time for spring cleaning and fixing things when spring comes. It is true, we can do so much and make things done when we get outside and we can perform our chores without the freezing cold. We can also schedule our family clean out and sort things that we don’t need and have a garage sale.

We can start looking and have a tour in our house and evaluate what things that need fixing and replacing while we have the good weather condition. Organized and clean home will makes us feel better and healthier. Enjoy and have fun doing your household and outside chores during this spring time season and thanks for stopping by.
