Outside my window...Sand and lots of it. A bunch of men playing cricket in the lot next door. Scooters and men. The temperatures have begun to drop here though. Funny, but "only" 100 degrees out doesn't make me pass out like it used to!
I am thinking that my week looks too busy for comfort. I hate when I am so overwhelmed that I feel like I can't do anything. The proverbial deer-in-the-headlights scenario.
I am smelling chocolate brownies and cinnamon room spray. I create for myself Fall in any way that I can!
I am thankful for friends, both old and new who hold me when I'm down and make me laugh.
From my kitchen- Moroccan Chicken and couscous, baked ziti and garlic bread, chicken pot pie with homemade pie crust.
I am wearing comfy pajamas after ridding myself of my ironed school clothes.
I am creating a better schedule to live by. Life with a baby is tough on my study habits. And also, a fall wreath. Because the two go hand in hand, don't you think? No time to study? Eh. Might as well make a wreath.
I am going along with the flow of things. Nap time for Grace means nap time for me!
I am reading my Arabic text books, the book of Luke, and
I am hoping Grace sleeps through the night. And that I complete my homework.
I am hearing my new neighbor drilling holes in the wall, Grace crying from her crib, the click of our ceiling fan.
We Decided on what our family devotional should look like. Now to implement....
Our Music- Jack Johnson, worship in Arabic, classical music
Our Viewing- the entire Bourne trilogy, Eddie Murphy's Imagine That, and an episode of Dance Moms!
One of my favorite things- my new food processor! I'm so excited for all of the things that it can do. It is no KitchenAid Mixer (ahh, one day!) but it made mixing pie dough, dicing chicken, and chopping onions, all that much faster. And it will soon be put to use making baby food!
We're looking forward to getting caught up on things that we have let slip. These past two-three weeks have been a whirlwind and hopefully things will settle down/fall into a routine.
A Glimpse Within-(I'm a good wife. Even though we live in a divided household, with me being a lifelong fan of the University of Florida and Ian being a fan of the University of Georgia, I'll dress my daughter in his team's garb to make him happy.
Even if she'd look a lot cuter in blue and orange.
And even if my team is better.)
