How to Get Pee Stains Out of a Mattress:

You need a measuring cup, tablespoon, funnel, and heavy duty spray bottle.

8 ounces/237 ml hydrogen peroxide 3% (this can be found in a brown bottle in the first aid aisle of most pharmacies or stores)

3 tablespoons/45 grams of baking soda

1 drop of liquid hand dish washing soap

Mix all ingredients into the spray bottle, swish ingredients, do not shake the bottle, and use within 20 minutes. Do not attempt to store the leftover solution. because it will leak out of the bottle. The mixture only works if you use it immediately, because the cleaning byproducts are active for only a short time period. You should see the stain lift and disappear within 5-10 minutes. Once the mattress dries, if a baking soda film remains, then simply wipe or vacuum it off. Reports I read also indicate this method works well for pet urine stains, but I have not tested it yet in this capacity.

Ambivalent

is an adjective we use to show when we’re uncertain about how we feel about something or we’re unable to decide what to do. People sometimes use it to show that they don’t care one way or the other. … Indifferent is an adjective, which means not interested or not thinking about something or someone.

Benevolent

comes from the Latin bene “well” and volent from the verb “to wish” so you can imagine that this word brings goodness with it. A benevolent society is a charity group organized to serve a community through programs, sponsorships and donations. The expression, benevolent dictatorship, may seem like an oxymoron, but it is a political term for an authoritative government that works for the good of the people under its rule.

Instrinsically

Something that is intrinsic is an essential part of a whole, so intrinsically describes something closely connected to or inseparable from something.
For example, if you believe people are intrinsically good, you think goodness is a part of being human. The Latin root is intrinsecus, which means “inwardly, on the inside.”

Intrinsic

Anything intrinsic comes from within.

Belonging to a thing by its very nature

“Even though people have the feeling that you are avoiding them, don’t hesitate to zone out if you are so inclined. It is likely that you need peace and quietness in order to ponder over your problems and to sort out what is real from what is imaginary. You also need solitude to assess the situation and to find the right answers to your questions. Silence helps you deepen your thoughts about spirituality and also encourages your meditation. Take full advantage of this short constructive retreat to recharge your batteries.”

“ENJOY THE VIEW: Remember the old analogy of life being a tapestry?

I have been on an incredible journey to get to this place in my life. I can see that I’ve done an amazing job. I may have stumbled along the way, but I’m here and I’m alive and I’m remarkable.”

“Your icy voice put out the stars
it cracked my heart, and broke it in splinters
your tone as cold as Colorado winters
but I promise to soon forget
the contract we almost made…you’ll feel
the swift response of an equal
as the dream begins to fade
I’ll drown you in pseudo kindness
and a casual, friendly glance
I can almost imagine your blindness
as I watch and wait
for the chance
to suddenly – cruelly – make you know
how easy it was to let you go”

We each have a darkness and a light and many shades of gray that filter in. Illness of any kind really puts us to major tests and we warrior on the best we can.

Clo·vis
‘klov?s/
nounArchaeology
noun: Clovis

a Paleo-Indian culture of Central and North America, dated to about 11,500–11,000 years ago and earlier. The culture is distinguished by heavy, leaf-shaped stone spearheads.

Watched a good show on the First real Americans on National Geographic. They were known as the Clavis and came into the America’s too a new land via Siberia. The Native Americans who were first thought to be the First are descendants from them. They have discovered a cave in the Yucatan that holds so many treasures in the deepest and darkness depths. Ice age mammal bones and a human said to be at least 13,000 years old.

I thought about how things change seemingly so suddenly.

More than likely an outcome already set in motion.

Like Old Home being razed too make way for new development. When people we love withdraw from us, the school shootings that yet again took innocent lives.

Illness that we have no real control over. At the mercy of Doctors and medical teams that are often time as clueless as we are.

I made a OLD HOME video.

I had hominy, an egg and cottage cheese with apple butter for early breakfast.

I made Fish Baja Tacos for my solo dinner last night.

I know I won’t be around to see it but I can easily envision a world made of skyscrapers where beautiful land once was, little space craft used as transport, gardens grown hydraulically in the sky. Perhaps 25-50 more years.

Of course there is that major possibility of an all out wipe out of what we know as Earth, our home.

So much going on in today’s and futuristic technology that we are not privy to have knowledge of. Just little crumbs thrown our way here and there.

The weather here has been lovely and the Iguana’s are soaking up the sunbeams.

We have our memories.
I guess when you come down to it we can be thankful and blessed that we still remember.

Cynthia says~We don’t always need a KING in our lives, but we do need to remember we are always the Queen. Never treat yourself as a pawn in someone else’s game.

If you ‘assume’ something, the universe will provide those things or conditions.

Just a reminder to be gentle with yourself whatever feelings arise.

The feelings are hard enough to endure, so do not add to them by berating yourself.

Self-kindness will get you through.

Synchronicity is a “happen chance” that occurs that is in perfect alignment with your thoughts or ideas. Often mistaken as coincidences, synchronicities are universal nods, confirming that you are on the right track. Synchronicities can also be road signs that help steer you on to the right track if you are feeling confused or lost in some way.

The Broads

Click here for awesome photos of Broads in all their awesomeness.

http://www.sarah-bishop.com/girls/index.html

Someone asked me yesterday if I had ever been A BROAD.

I replied “I’ve been a BROAD my entire life.”

“So, what is a Broad?

A Broad is a gal who takes no crap from anyone.

A Broad is smart, loyal, honest, supportive, sassy, funny, and knows who she is.

A Broad can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan, regardless of whether or not a man is in her life.

A Broad doesn’t have time to be jealous of the women around her.

A Broad doesn’t have time to gossip nonstop, though a Broad is extremely capable of dishing some good dirt (the only difference is she’ll dish it to your face).

A Broad knows the true meaning of the word vent; she can lend an ear while her friends vent, and let out a good scream of her own with her fellow Broads.

Basically, a Broad is as real as any woman can get, and I’m proud to have known a few real Broads in my life.”

It’s a mind boggling world we live in. Hence we have addicts, homeless and persons so tied up in Reality TV they don’t see the Beautiful Real World just outside the cage, a cage we have made for ourselves.

This This and This

© C. m ART z  2015

My Reality most days ~ my perception of it.

Than again There is no such thing as reality.

There is only ‘your’ version of it which is essentially your perception.

Personal thoughts.

The mask we wore oh so well.

The tracks of the tears, fears and years that led me here.

“Hello darkness my old friend, I’ve come to talk with you again”
Simon and Garfunkel “Sounds of Silence”

Osho on my brain.

Wonder if they will finally be legalizing the weed?  It does help many people and it is after all a god grown herb in the wild.

It is also used for everything from fabric, rope to ethanol fuel.

Unfortunately, the government makes so much money off of it. They allow it.

Then they arrest you and put you into over crowded prisons because they have to keep those people employed. Reminds me of the 7 prisons closing here in Florida. Now,when they transfer to a new prison it is packed to the walls.

There are so many dust bunnies here, under the bed in the corners. China Kat (almost 4 years old) eats them. Lord knows what else she eats.

She is a maniac. No, not like crazy, just hyper as hell.

Oh, and I am a fanatic about hair balls, dust bunnies, dust.

Where does it come from?

Oh yea, birds, cats, the wind from outside. The screens are in a bad need of saying ”Clean me”  but hey, the electric bill sure looked a lot better this month, no AC running, running,and running higher and higher.

It was broken.

I thought that kept the dust and dust makers at bay but I believe the AC ducts are saying “Clean me” too.

Is not finding something that is supposed to be where you left it last considered losing it ? I suppose for a time it is lost. It will reappear some time, because I know it’s here.

Just a another incident of a reality shift.

While I was unplugging the scanner I see my post-it container underneath the photo paper. Those refills are astronomical.

Tags, why does a moped that does not need insurance have to pay for tags?

I Love Cuties

“Cuties” are a form of a tangelo with no seeds and very sweet. They make great blender smoothies because you don’t have to worry with the seeds.

My last batch wasn’t sweet so I complained and I got my coupon worth a free 5 pound box of them. They are not inexpensive. A 3 pound bag is around $6 – 7.

The netting off the Cuties worked perfectly  on the tops of the Betta vases. Since Betta’s are air breathers.They need access to the top without a cover denying them there oxygen. They have a special breathing apparatus. At any rate after reading about how they breathe I decided to go with the netting.

“Bettas have a special respiratory organ that allows them to breathe air directly from the surface.  In fact they inherently must do so. In experiments where the labyrinth organ was removed, the fish died from suffocation even though the water was saturated with oxygen. For this reason, Bettas must have access to the water surface to breathe air directly from the atmosphere.”

I have read  Osho’s “No Water, No Moon” and still have many others I want to read.

I made a new playlist for the computer and the TV’s through Uverse.
Haven’t played it yet.
Tonight, before sleep.
It is mostly Manose wooden flute, Deva and Miten, a lot of message and relaxation, Zen, Moroccan, Indian music.

I am playing it now. It is amazing.
Wish everyone could hear this. Earphones make the experience magnified.

Every time I hear this specific one, a rendition of the Gayatri Mantra. I feel like dancing.
It would be great to play early in the morning as the rainbow prism sunbeams are dancing on my walls.

I might even clean house.

Looking for the eye lens cleaner I did find the missing battery charger.

Born and raised in Frederick,Maryland

I’m just a country girl dressed in city clothes

It’s been a Hell of a ride and I am hoping to be on it for some time to come

Loving the island life, been in Key West since 1992.

I fly in my dreams and float without using a mat in regular or salt water.

I play in RAIN puddles every chance I get

I love walking in the Rain and Full Moons.

Persons may think I am bored, not boring mind you…I am far from it.

Prose I wrote:

I have my amazing thoughts, memories and creativeness whirling in my brain

I have had the fever and furious lovemaking,the lies, the betrayal, complicated maze

Nights of undeniable bliss

I have witnessed many an azure sky with winking stars and mysterious neighboring mists

In too many cities wandering and erratic in between the twilight shadows

My journals speak of days and nights
sometimes blended as one
Kaleidoscopic pictures of the Maze in fragmentary facts

Raised on religious rhetoric
Isolated and Detached
Waiting for an END that never came
Disillusioned youth, fractured family

I have no interest in babbling gossip
He said, she said, they said, who cares
But seriously speaking, what is the use of it?

Ex friends that remind me of sandpaper
with their critical judgment,vigorous invective

They rub the wrong way
No time for the maddening monotony
