Carbon Monoxide – the Silent Killer

They say that carbon monoxide is the invisible killer since carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, tasteless and a non-irritating toxic gas. It can be found in our homes, in the workshops and just around our surroundings.

Carbon Monoxide is a very dangerous chemical compound especially in our homes since it can be just found from any appliances at home like  gas ranges, stoves heaters and when automobiles or engines from lawn mowers emit this toxic gas enters the home. Since it is colorless and odorless, we may not know that it is accumulated already in our homes so it is very important to have carbon monoxide alarms installed to determine and detect the presence of this poisonous gas.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is also considered as one of the common types of fatal poisoning. But we can protect ourselves and our loved ones from this silent killer. We can do regular inspection and maintenance of all fuel-burning appliances in the house. Gas stoves, ranges, oven and clothes dryers should be used for its purpose and not for heating the homes, and these appliances must be used properly. Should you suspect anyone in your household suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, bring immediately to the nearest hospital to avoid complications, worst, death.

Wood Blinds for the Summer Heat

Now that the summer is here, the heat is also on!

Lately, it has been so hot and humid that even the air conditioning system could no longer give out the coolness that sweating bodies need. Offices and even homes have already placed faux window blinds to shade the rooms from the glaring heat of the sun.

Thankfully these blinds have been created to cover areas in a room from the direct heat of the sun. Blinds also serve as a block against too much bright light, and because summer just gives off all these, blinds now come in very handy, and by using blinds, we get to save on water and detergent and electricity since we don’t have to wash them.

Rustic Decors at Home

Just lately, I received a compliment, I rather chose and thought as like that than a negative comment, that I am really weird. According to them, I have that uniqueness in thinking which is very different from the others.

This is not the first time I receive words like these. I know I am different. I am weird. I am unique. In almost all aspect, be it personal to anything, I do not know but I really deviate from the crowd. For instance, when we’re still planning to have a new house in our province, mom was fetching ideas from us, her children. My siblings were sharing almost the same designs and concepts. However, mom looked at me differently when I suggested a rustic decor and theme at home. All of them were staring at me with a blank and a question marks on their faces. Haha.

I love rustic decor since it’s kind’a unique, elegant looking and very vintage. The house will be looking like an antic museum filled with abstract thoughts depending on how visitors see the house.

Do you agree? I don’t think so because even my family did not agree with my idea. Haha!

Empty Apartment

Since I moved in my new apartment, I keep thinking how to make this empty apartment a fully-packed one like those I used to see over the internet like the Houston lofts.

I know, it’s very hard for me to have all what I want for the apartment since I am yet a student. However, it feels so boring and dull to live and very dry to look at every time I arrived home after classes like no kitchen to check for yummy foods, no sofa to lie down. What I just do is to immediately go upstairs in my room. The living room is really empty if I don’t have my 2 aquariums there. Think of it!

I actually chose to stay in an apartment rather than in a dormitory for me to feel like am just in our house comfortably studying during the night. But it seems like I am missing more home when I see the Townhomes in Houston over the internet. I’m getting envious to it!

Ah oh! I don’t know how to get my apartment fully-packed with stuffs here.
