Sometimes I feel that I am talking to a brick wall. I talk and talk and talk but I am talking to myself and no one is ever listening (i.e. my children and the housemaid).
“Mama why do my pancakes smell like chicken nuggets?!?” Well, now babies it’s because I had no butter to cook the pancakes with and only had the leftover oil from the nuggets that I made for lunch yesterday.
What makes me happy?
The color yellow and the scent of lemons
Things I Am Thankful For…
Alhamdulilah for everything, my health, my family, and that I am a Muslim. Alhamdulilah.
I am thankful for air conditioning which is a necessity and not a luxury living here in the Middle East.
Deodorant…gosh can you imagine what it would be like if everyone was all stinky? in a crowded room?
Fresh fruit…juicy oranges, Granny Smith apples, watermelon, cherries, apricots, peaches, pineapple, cherries, and grapes.
My handblender for making smoothies…my blender is broken and Alhamdulilah for the back-up.
My husband…he is a wonderful man, MashaAllah. Who, with Allah’s blessing, works hard to provide for us.
And starting today with no whiney-hineys, cold water, iced tea, fish and rice for lunch, and staying home.
