MPM and more.. February 10, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — shezahasan @ 11:43 pm

Alhamdolillah, warm water has been helping tons. I’ve been gargling once every hour with warm water (as hot as your throat can take it) and salt (this is an amazing disinfecting concotion!!) and drinking only warm water and no juices etc. Alhamdolillah, I think another two days and inshaAllah, I should be as good as new! =)

I mentioned previously that I would be MPMing from this week inshaAllah. Here is my MPM for this week. Feel free to do yours and leave a message with a link to yours!

Tuesday:  Chicken, mushroom pie

    alhamdulillah, we’ve been green for a while. since we moved into our apt we’ve been staunch recyclers and we used to conserve water and energy (which was a challenge at times since we knew we weren’t charged by consumption). since we moved to our home, we’ve continued those traditions and try to conserve more water and energy (which is easier now since we know we have to pay for what we use). we replaced every single bulb with energy savers and bought reusable bags at loblaws and no longer use plastic bags. i try to remember to take the bags with me to every store so that i can use those instead of getting more plastic bags (even though they are free). i also try to reduce the amount of packaging from stores (free tissue paper, free gift boxes, etc) if i don’t need it since it adds to our waste. i’m praying milton hydro switches us to smart meters soon so we can conserve (and save) more as well Inshallah. also for gift giving, i try to use it in gift bags i already have as opposed to boxes and gift wrap that usually get thrown out after one use, as the bags can be reused.

    as for meal plans, it’s a work in progress. i saw tons of yummy recipes while sifting through my magazines so i plan to sit down with z one evening (when he’s hungry so he’s more enticed) and get him to put a post-it on every recipe he’d want me to make, and then i’m gonna make a list of it and decide my menu from there. i’m bored of making the same old things and wanna try something new.

    Asalaamu Alaikum

    I have to clean off my desk too. I bought wall shelves from CT to hang for this purpose. Haven’t put them up yet.
    But I did paint my room and hang new curtains.
