On Thursday’s, I share pictures about ‘Echos of my Neighbourhood.
I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.
This week has truly been a bit rough on my emotions, but work and attending a three-day digital photography workshop helped to take my mind a bit off things.
I am working at honing my photography skills and see where this road leads. It was a lot of fun that by the time I got home each day, I was numb enough not to think too much about all the ugly incidents going on all over the place.
I met some delightful people and interacted with one of the attendees, a beautiful Turkish lady. My heart felt so sad for her when her eyes brimmed over with tears as she talked about the bombing at ATATURK. She was scheduled to travel home to Turkey this week and her thoughts were filled with trepidation which was quite understandable.
what are the 3 things you are truly thankful for today
My quick to do list
Revise for the end of year exams with the children. I have to quiz them and go through their subjects before shooing them confidently out of the door to go and get those grades.
Conclude my monthly bulk cooking of stews, soups, and stuff: I always prepare at least two batches of our native soup amongst other stews to ease life a bit. These could serve as quick dinner or lunch on busy days. It earns me some hours of putting up my feet 😉
Continue partying on my blog and mixing with fab folks. Come on in 🙂
Place some calls to family in Nigeria.
Writing quick drafts of some of my blog posts for the coming week so that I can face my other writing works.
Tweak my second self-hosted site a little bit. Not yet ready to run.
Do some research work for work on Mastermind Learning and Development strategy.
I am excited
That school Summer break will commence over here in a couple of weeks. Don’t have a holiday plan yet but looking forward to working out something.
Some new ideas are cooking in my head and it makes me feel all warm at the thought.
Getting my teeth into my second book. It’s been a bit slow.
A 3-day self-improvement workshop that I’ll be attending. Okay, I’ve overshot the 3 things.
I am thankful:
For my husband and children. They are kind and supportive.
The blog World and the great supportive people I meet here. I’ve learnt so much in this space.
For life in general. Each day is a splendid opportunity.
So far so good and so not good. I had to slip that in there 😉
I feel naughty and guilty for not having stuck to the ‘treat your body better rule’ that I set for myself. My weight loss has been sitting put like the Sitting Bull, but it’s my fault 😉 Okay, I’ve got that off my chest. Now to the good part.
My published poetry book makes me very happy.
The decent growth of my blog in just a year of blogging always amazes me. It’s just wonderful.
The endless burst of inspiration keeps me bubbling. I wish my fingers could work half as fast as the ideas that are streaming through my head.
Thank you, Duchesse. I enjoy your promptings.
P.S. You can join our Summer blog party by clicking the link. It’s taking place right now and really bubbling. It’s fun and you get to meet fantastic folks. Looking forward to seeing you
