From spring to snow

Today was a cold and gray day. Unlike yesterday when the sun was shinning and the flowers still bloomed. What a different a day can make. Now the sidewalk is covered with snow and there is yet again a cold breeze outside. It may go without saying but we stayed inside today. Even though I desperately need to make a trip to the grocery market because our fridge is running empty soon. Other than staying inside today I managed to clean a little, take an afternoon nap and start a new sewing project. Hopefully I’ll be able to share the process and result with you soon. I’ll be heading off to bed in less than twenty minutes so I’ll say goodnight now.

Fresh baked rolls & Marie Claire

img_1076
To be honest I haven’t read my new Marie Claire magazine but I did go out to buy fresh baked rolls this morning. We have a tiny little bakery a few minutes from where I live and they bake the best bread and rolls. I usually don’t splurged on bread like that but it is a national holiday here. Even though we don’t celebrate or have anything to do with easter, it’s nice to do a little bit extra sometimes. It also reminds me of the best breakfasts we had with my late grandmother. The smell of fresh coffee and bread is just so satisfying. 

Other than that today was an uneventful day. Spending the day on the couch feeding and the frequently diaper change there isn’t much news to my life. A little guilt has sneaked up on me since it’s been a while since I’ve updated you, but right now there isn’t much to tell. As we speak the little one is asleep and today’s football game is on, Bayern v. Real Madrid. Not that’s of my interest. Other than that I will enjoy the quit sounds of the night.

Dear sister


When we live in a world
were being ‘ugly’ is a crime
and you gotta be hot to survive
You just have to submit before
the angel of death arrives

You may think it’s ugly
or i doesn’t fit your shoes
but on the day of judgement
this wont’ be any excuse

People may tell you it’s a sign of oppression
and under a man’s command
but it’ll come a day
where everyone will be asked a question
Will you then have the answer in your right hand?

Even though hijab isn’t in style
neither on the first page on a magazine
I promise you’ll smile
because this world lasts only for awhile
and with this smile
you can walk through every mile

So dear sister, do yourself a favor
Start to fight your own Jihaad
and don’t let your last day
be the first day you wear the hijab

Where I left off..

I’ve come to the conclusion that my post on the 10th of October was a bit premature. I most often get carried away and think bigger than big of what I’m capable of doing. But in the end I come around and try to pull up that red string and find out where I left you all.

Lately I’ve just been writing about my “planned” topics, like Music Monday, Workout Wednesday, and Fashion Friday. But I do what to get into my old routs writing about much more than those three things. Even if that’s what occupy me most of the free time I have left I have so much more I want to share. At least I think I do.

So let me start with my latest project; redecoration my room. I’ll give you a sneak pick now but look out for a room tour soon.
