It is already 17th Ramadhan and in all honesty, mashallah it is going fast...I think even faster than last year. Then again, This Ramadhan has been more busier than normal,  with having to fix water issues around the home, electricity then went crazy owing to someone in family, hoping by some miracle the broken boiler would suddenly work.. of course the boiler had  tripped off the electricity causing all fridges, Tv and the wireless cable box to switch off.. then the young lady kept opening and opening again and again.. until we  were like  helloooooo, stuff is actually getting damaged around here and thus without internet connection etc.

Well seems to be okay now, but at a cost of course! And, if that wasn't enough, I had just finishing paying for fixing pipes and the like around the house.

The good thing about all this though, is over the years I have gained the experience in getting things done.. at least I don't stare  waiting for it to get done lool.

Everyone has also had coughs and colds... maybe allergy or something ( mine was anyway) some maybe not....Hubby's  has the  sneezes now too... when any of the boys ( since they have to go to work) see anyone sneezing.. they cover their faces... grandkids think this is so funny and have a good laugh. When they have a cold, they would chase after one of their uncles who would cover their faces and run away from them lol.

Fasting has been in God Great Grace, and Al handulilah,  quite good.. its almost 6 pm and just now really to feel thirst... only because now I have had time to sit and moan about it lool. When you busy... time flies but one major thing is to avoid going out as much as possible during Ramadhan...that way, you won't feel as thirsty.

Neighbours have sent Harees, little sandwiches, rice dishes etc etc.. today I  made yummmm… grilled fiish which is  put on a bed of herbs and lemons and just teaching my maid a couple of important recipes as when I am out, she will have to make them--however, found my self having to make emergency corrections when I get back  from an appointment .  I made the daily al lugainmat,  shurba,  and little meatball bbq sandwiches, and  beef pasties which my family demand if they have just missed it for one day... well... have to buy the meat of course on one of those days !

My daughter in law  mother from Sharjah and who I have known for many many years, sent us really beautiful tasty hares Mashallah, and anyone will tell you the Samon ( slightly spice butter [turned into a ghee] is made to perfection there mashallah.

At fatoor one time we were discussing food etc ( of course last couple of minutes before the Azan ) and my hubby brought up the subject of Charmi ( a kind of delicious curd ), which I now craved lol. Also, the daily ' Al Shara' show on Emirates around 11 pm, brought it  up again as the local woman on the show was about to  make it Mashallah!

I haven't been able to watch Tv or even follow anything this year as either too busy or when I do sit, I fall asleep. I have caught glimpses of some good shows though that I would like to watch but if I did, I usually pick one and that is it.

Last night at Suhoor my young grandson made an appearance for suhoor...asking for rice Krispies-he is too young to fast but it is all about getting use to the Ramadhan Environment and to experience  waking up for suhoor… it is fun and exciting for kids at this age, as they get to be awake at unusual times. So, he called out to me all proud Mashallah :). My granddaughter fell asleep... she will probably take it out on her dad today !

Well have to get going now, to prepare the table...everyone will probably mashallah go out after Taraweeh prayers, quite frankly... don't mind staying home!!   People Mashallah are already buying new clothes and shoes for  Eid,  I managed to get some beautiful textile pieces but had not time to get them done... and not one for going out to kharaat and the  mall for long period of times..wondering how people can spend hours at the malls hmm... I get what I want and out lol! Guess I would be boring!

well everyone, take good care....bye for now.
