A Heavy Hearted Post



Yesterday marked the beginning of our Lent. Christian Australian's usually celebrate it as Ash Wednesday
with the mark of the Cross on your forehead but as a Maronite Catholic we have it on Monday.
It's the beginning of 6 weeks until Easter when we celebrate the crucifixion of Christ and his Resurrection three days later. For me, it's a very personal time.

The past three weeks many things have been revealed to me which are very disturbing. I won't go into depth
but I realise now that our perceptions on the world are based on lies which are fed to me by t.v.
They call it television PROGRAMMING for a reason. Basically what we see on t.v and read about what has happened in the world is being fed by evil people who have tons of money and want more. They don't tell us about the slaughtering of innocent people in parts of the world where they want the land. They tell us what they want us to believe to incite hatred to other races and have civil wars and unrest. I feel sick just thinking about it.

Now my eyes are opened I will know that there is always another side to the story and that evil does exist. The devil's plan is working and we are all blinded by it. Did you know that some religions also believe that Jesus Christ is coming back? You don't have to believe in Jesus or God but know that our humanity is greatly suffering right now. They've predicted London bombings which would have you believe that we are under a terrorist attack. What a load of bull. Did you notice how perfectly the Twin Towers came down like a controlled demolition? Think about it. Now the U.S can control their people by taking away the First Amendment. They're coming for the rest of the world. My eyes are open now. My heart is aching.

It's time for me to nourish my soul. My body is just a temple for my soul and I've been too busy with life to  notice that I've not looked after it.They want us to be distracted from the truth but for me, no longer. I know what is to come and I don't want to be scared but I will be. I just hope you are ready too.

I'm not sure if I'll continue posting in this space. It's a bit like stepping back into the Matrix. We're so busy with gadgets and internet that we're not noticing the control they have over us. I don't want to sound so gloomy but we shall see what happens this year.

God Bless us all.

  1. Hello Kim,

    I dont usually post comments but I felt moved to say something to you. I read your blog sometimes. I think it is inspiring that you have 4 little ones and continue to be able to eech out a little bit of time to sew. I enjoy seeing your projects.

    I hope that you are alright. I dont really understand what your post is about but clearly something has disturbed you. I hope you find some peace. I find it helpful to worry about things that you can affect and to not worry about fixing the bigger world around us. Yes there are sad, tragic and scary things going on around the world but we all have a little bit we can do to affect and care for the people around us.

  2. Thankyou Miss M for your caring words. I realise that I am not able to change the world or re-write history but that I am in control (so far) of what I can do right now and make good use of my time here however long it may be. I realise that my soul and spirit need to be looked after as much if not more than my physical body. I am so grateful for your kind words.

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …
