Herbal tea for nicotine addiction

Herbal tea for nicotine addiction

When you know someone who has nicotine addiction, and you have a garden full of herbs, a productive thing one could do is, what if perhaps if I could make tea that could help someone quit smoking, and reduce their nicotine addiction?

This could really work.

Reads: Rich Habits by Thomas Corley



I work in a day care. I work as a Montessori teacher in a Montessori day care.

Watching children repeat the same habits every day in the school. Habits like pushing your chair in when you get up from the table. Put your place mat away after meals. Put your dirty dishes in the sink and clean it. Flush the toilet after using it. Mop up the floor when you spill some water.

You'd think that this is a given and all grown people automatically do it....

Carrots, and Beetroot.

With the weather heating up much recently in Melbourne for summer, I decided to recently dig out my crops. 

Among the crops were carrots that I had grown from cut carrot-tops, and beetroot seeds over the winter months.

As this was my first time growing them, and with the differing information online that I found, I was not really sure what to expect. It was however a pleasant find to know that many carrots can be grown from just carrot tops, and beetroot can be grown from just seeds.

It is just a matter of time, and consistently watering and feeding them with nutrients.

December update

December update

It's been about four months since I have written a post.

I've been trying to get my website up and running, but that has taken ages to update and set-up. Nothing seems to be running on time anyways! I am still in the midst of changing more features about the website.

Let me just update you on the important stuff that has happened to me in the last four months.

Perfect love casts out all fear

Perfect love casts out all fear

Today I received a call that finally put my mind to ease.

It has been difficult for me to put into words the emotions that I have been going through in the past two weeks, but today it felt like the dam had finally  broken.

Every woman, regardless of difficulties in their monthly cycles, still has a womb with a 1% of conceiving.

With my past history of menstruation  absences, irregular cycles, and sleeping through biology classes which didn't help matters either.

And yet, it is that 1% that still makes the difference....

Compassion - a prayer of desperation.

Compassion - a prayer of desperation.

For his anger endures but for a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. (Psalms 30:5) 

I returned from Sydney last week. Out of sheer desperation to find solutions to the issues I was facing, I undertook a 7 day one meal dinner fast from 1st April.

Marie Claire- Autumn Beauty box


This apparently is the Autumn beauty box - The Parcel edition by Marie Claire

Cost: AUD 25. 
Value: Is it worth it? Hmmmm. Not sure at this time. 

It came in the mail on Thursday. The postman left it at my front door.  

I'll make a review on this later when I have more time.

I missed my flight back to Melbourne.

I missed my flight back to Melbourne.

So a fortnight ago, I made my trip to Sydney. It was a good time of catching up with old mates from Lentils, as well as some from my meetup group. I actually even missed my flight.

My mind was in the clouds, perhaps). So this is the story of what happened.

Fulfilment of a prophecy that is due.

23/03/2017

Fulfilment of a prophecy that is due.

I had a hard time falling asleep on Wednesday night due to the Autumn heat, and had to open the door of the hall to let some fresh air in.

It seems to me that everything seems to be coming together all at once. The Lord brought to my remembrance that exactly ten years ago, in 2007, when I was at uni, a housemate of mine, Norine had decided to knock on my door one fine day, and prophesied into my life that she had seen me in a vision wearing a wedding dress.

It was not so much about the vision that I actually would have believed her, but rather she had actually accurately described to me exactly what I was thinking a few days before that, and the emotions that I was going through even when I had kept silent about it to everyone, which had been the truth.

Due to the busyness of life, and its many distractions, I had forgotten about this said prophecy which I had thought was probably my housemate crapping and trying to mind her own business...

However, when I started fasting in February this year, I started to feel in my spirit that I kept getting this unction that the Lord was preparing me for the next season in my life; which was to meet the person that He had been preparing for me to walk down the aisle with.

And again, the Lord brought to my remembrance this prophecy from 10 years ago...

This distinct feeling has got even stronger today as I was writing down in my notebook, as the Lord brought into my remembrance the dream where I had received the strict letter from Aaron.

For me, it was the sense that not only had I been given a warning, but the fact that some doors are to remain closed in order for me to pursue specifically this prophecy that He had already given me.

This actually did lead me to ask, why did the Lord specifically asked me to pray for the salvation of one, but not the other?

Why is he preventing me from getting entangled with one, but not the other? Should we not be praying for the salvation of each unsaved person we come into contact with?

Is there a purpose the Lord knows that only by my being that link in the middle, and praying for the salvation of this person, that He could ultimately achieve His purposes into this person's life?

I feel the winds of change blowing, and in my spirit, that upon my return to Melbourne, more things I have been praying for will start to come to pass, with the arrival of a new season, and a new assignment to task.

It is not just about you.

It is not just about you.

On 9th March, when I was still getting up from bed that I had complained to the Lord.

Why did I have to intercede in prayer for the salvation for HT? He was NOT the most noble of men, and he too had bad intentions..

My TFN adventure at Commonwealth Bank

My TFN adventure at Commonwealth Bank

On Saturday afternoon, I went to the Commonwealth Bank branch at a local shopping mall in Werribee to have my Tax File Number applied to a business savings account (the one that generates interest) I had opened in Dec 2016.

Apparently the system had mysteriously withdrawn a total of $7 from the interest generated. Considering I already pay $10 account keeping fees every month, the thought of them further withdrawing $7 from the interest generated didn't sit well with me.

God's Valentine's Day gift to me.

God's Valentine's Day gift to me.

Today I bring into remembrance this incident that happened to me in 2008. Reading it, I realised that when I had spoken to my unit counsellors on that very day in December 2007, I had known in my heart and my spirit that I was going to graduate.

Gardening in Melbourne Summer

It was a sunny morning in Melbourne today. Last night, I bought some mulch from Bunnings Altona, and decided to tend to my garden. My water bill actually advises people to mulch their garden to save on water costs. That which I have done.
