Random Echoes of My Neighbourhood

Many weeks have gone by and I’ve not shared a post on Echoes of my neighbourhood. I miss doing so and blame it on the infernal heat in this place.

I have barely taken decent photos in the past weeks due to efforts to avoid heat stroke, melting into a puddle and baking in the sun.

I am one of those waiting for Autumns’ gate to open so I can dash out and play in nature. These past weeks have been from air-conditioned house to air-conditioned car, to air-conditioned locations and it’s getting a bit old for me.

So, I’m just going to stick some random shots taken here and there.

School Apparel, Bags, Children, Academics

 

We are getting ready to go back to school next week.

Father and Son, Smiling, Happy

 

At the aquarium. I love this photo. Their smile made me smile 🙂

School of fish, aquarium, sea life

I wonder if the school of fish is going back to school as well? Ha, ha! I couldn’t resist that pun.

 

Happy Dance, Hershey's

I guess when you eat the Hershey’s you feel sweet enough to dance the happy dance.

 

Fashion, Summer sales, clothing

Summer clearance sales at every nook and cranny to make way for Winter wear.

 

 

The Dying One’s – Echoes of My Neighbourhood

It simply has to be the searing heat, ‘cos I’ve seen far too many dead birds this past couple of weeks. The poor things.

When I look at them, they always seem to have their feathers ruffled out of place and their beaks open in an attempt to get more air – my thoughts.

However, I preferred not to take depressing photos of the dead birds but sharing bits and pieces of my week. No one can convince me that the Earth is not gradually over heating.

Pamela took us to Jax beach and I must say that I’m a tad envious of those enjoying a good-natured weather at their end right now.

Lady Tee shared some delicious slices of her world with us.

So, how’s your end holding up?

 

A Promenade, A little Show and Some Fake Snow…Echoes of My Neighbourhood

  • I thought that I would have a quieter week this week with the children being on a mini-vacation from school. I lied!

There were lots of pending activities to fit into our busy days – church matters and meetings, school projects, getting my daughters hair fixed (a major project) etc, etc.

Phew! I didn’t know when we hit Thursday but we did manage to squeeze in fun along the way. That’s what living is, isn’t it? Balancing all the nuts on your fire 🙂

City walk Dubai is a beautiful location to visit anytime. There’s so much that aesthetically pleases the eyes’ and there are loads of people to watch. I took lots of photos that I don’t even know which one’s to use.

Lady Lee shares some leche flan with us. Do you know how to make one?

Gravity When we were young we defied gravity, now when I think of falling down my heartbeat halts to a stop. Like an Igbo adage says, when broken bones are mentioned the old woman sighs in pain 🙂

One body, many souls Interesting read.

I have come to recognize that I am a multi-layered human with a million facets of me used for different occasions. We are one body and many souls.

Mental break in progress This post touches me on so many levels. I am just HAPPY to read this. Here’s are snippets from Cavelle’s post.

About eight months ago now, I went through some serious life changes and in the process I felt it necessary to delete my blog entirely. In hindsight, I wish I had given it some more thought before hitting the delete button. Two years of written work gone. Just like that!

PLEASE, I urge you to read.

Small, little tiny shacks Painstaking piece of art that evokes inspiration of all manners of stories in my mind. I see folklore, I see ghostly haunting, I see little people and so much more.

Central Souk and The Walkabout – Echoes of my neighbourhood

One fervent thought that is crystal clear in my mind is to enjoy where ever I am at each point in time. To be at peace with myself and my environment.

Sometimes people ask me ‘how do you cope with living in a predominantly Muslim society,‘ and I smile in response with a simple statement ‘I’m loving it.’

The differences in culture and society are certainly there but the real truth is that this place is a potpourri of nationalities and there’s so much to learn from being around others.

My message here is that wherever you find yourself – even if it’s in your good old hometown, live with open eyes’ embrace each day with positive energy.

My weekly meanderings took me to the central souk in Sharjah. I always try to find a new location within a day’s travel at most from me to visit and I enjoy a leisurely train/bus ride to the place. Sometimes, I drive myself as well but most times, I just enjoy the process of the journey – that’s the fun part.

Lady Lee shares her weekly smile with us. Do take a make and grab a smile 🙂

If you would like to show us your neighbourhood, the challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.
