This post has been in draft for a few days now. Just can’t get to it because this sore throat and head cold is getting to me real bad. I know, Lee, I know, it’s all my fault for not looking after myself better.
Not much has been happening in these parts apart from the usual. The house needs one massive spring cleaning which I will get started just as soon as this nasty cold leaves. The kids are A-okay. Exams results are trickling in and they are good. They need a bit more focus on Maths but everything else is good. Viel is on her mid-terms soon and will be sorting out her passport renewal and travel documents so she can come home in March and celebrate her birthday here.
Last Friday, we went out to Safa Park to hopefully try and catch the monthly flea market. However the aroma of the barbecue distracted us all and all thoughts of fleas flew out the window. I had a nice visit from two knitter friends, Hala and Jackie (and her adorable twins and hubby).
And of course I had fun with the camera.
There has got to be a whole new universe of life in here
Even the tiniest spray of flowers look beautiful up close
An orange this time, the only apple in the place got snatched up quickly!
And pine cones! Yes, we have pine trees in Dubai, just not the fancy ones
This was as close as the bird would let me go
Not a very good photo but I love the light peeking through the clouds
This next set of photographs were taken by my daughter Aibi.
Oh yes, she did! She made me pose with her Japanese apple a la Twilight.
I’m such a sucker too!
She was working on some math problems before lunch
A pretty yellow bougainvillae
I don’t know what this is but I love this shot
It warms my heart that she found these things and photographed them well
Not the healthiest bunch of leaves but I like the angles
She makes her Mama proud!
