After you have found the perfect spot, you want to shop for a shallow bowl that matches your decor. The garden section is a good place to start, though remember that the bowl must not have a hole in the bottom as most planters do. A ceramic bowl, or a terra cotta bowl is an excellent choice.
Next, pick out some rocks or stones that you like. The smooth ones are lovely and come in an assortment of colors. You need enough to fill your bowl.
A water feature cannot work without a fountain pump. They are usually found in the garden section of popular Home Improvement stores. The best pump is the small fountain pump (Beckett is an excellent choice) that is 120V, 60mz, and 4 watts. The pump comes with a little piece that fits in the spout, however, if you find you need more height for the flow, you may have to get a piece of tubing that will fit in the spout. Most likely, you will not have to get tubing.
When putting your water feature together, place the fountain pump on the bottom of the bowl in the center. There are suction cups to keep the pump in place. Fill the bowl with rocks and cover the pump. Make sure to leave room open around the spout for the water flow.
Fill the bowl completely so the pump is submerged and the water covers the rocks or comes to just under the top layer. The water flow is adjustable. You might want to do a test by the sink when you first plug in your fountain to avoid spraying water on your furniture. The flow does not have to be strong. A bubbling effect is lovely, and you can move the rocks to enhance the sound and flow.
The plug will drape over the side of the bowl towards the back and is usually not noticeable, however, you can hide it with the use of artificial plants.
Make sure the flow aims towards the room and not out the back. That will help to bring wealth and prosperity into your life.
Mix oil, maple syrup, and eggs with a mixer and blend together.
Add oatmeal, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and milk and mix until well blended.
Pour all the ingredients in a 9x13 inch pan or pyrex dish, and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. For a little bit more of a crunch, you can bake for a slightly longer time.
Can be served warm or cooled. Super healthy, too!
For those who are not concerned with sugar intake, you can add optional ingredients such as apples, craisins, raisins, or any other fruit items. You can also replace the sugar free maple syrup with 3/4 cup sugar, honey, or regular maple syrup. Regular milk can be substituted for the non-dairy milk, as well.
