I bought some curry powder from iherb and my husband immediately thought of a particular recipe he’s found online a week ago. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the other spices required so, we had a quick grocery stop. This was in Danube, Panorama Mall in Riyadh.
He was able to cook something indeed! A super spicy meal!
Indian food is quite popular in our home but he made it exaggeratedly spicy that I settled with chicken nuggets instead. My tongue can only tolerate the pepper kind of spicy. His version will get me to the hospital for sure.
It was extra special because it’s very rare that I get to go out. YES, I am at the office daily since we resumed the regular office set up but that’s all I ever go. Being with husband doing errands is something I have missed so much. We were so overwhelmed by our concerns that we forget to enjoy the zen like feels of grocery shopping together.
I want to share a song that I have learned at the Bible camp when I was in Primary School. It’s called It’s a Happy Day,
It's a happy day, and I thank God for the weather It's a happy day, living it for my Lord It's a happy day, things are gonna get better Living each day by the promises in God's word
This song reminds me of God’s goodness and love because despite the circumstances, there are people who still love and support us unconditionally. I am forever grateful!
Speaking of happiness, one of the things that certainly makes me happy is being remembered by our thoughtful blogbuddies like Yonna of JustYonna. She is an inspirational blogger who is also a medical student. Her about me section is so awesome that I want to share it with you, exactly as how she has written it,
A young girl reawakening her unexplored passions. My name is Kamsiyonna. It’s an igbo name and it means, ‘as I ask of the father.’ Yonna, the site name was gotten from my name. Sometimes as a young writer it can be hard getting inspirations on what to write on or what to share. Whenever in doubt, ask the Father (Yonna). For those who may not understand who the Father is, the Father is God. I really hope my posts help you find inspiration and the boost to live your best lives.
She’s nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award and since I have probably ran out of people to nominate having tagged almost everyone, I am inviting whoever loves Q&As to answer Yonna’s question and ping us back once done so we can read your answers too! You can find the rules from her post:
1. What does sunshine mean to you?
Sunshine means anything that gives me warmth and those that brighten up my life!
2. What inspires you the most?
Knowing that I am still being blessed by the Lord despite my imperfections. Who am I to live uninspired?
3. Are there any type of thoughts that pop up in your mind frequently? If yes, what do you think is the reason behind it?
I used to have something every waking hour. I am unable to sleep because of it. I was uneasy and restless. But thank God for the comfort that He’s given me recently. It was as if He’s literally touched me and reminded me how my thoughts are filled with worry and concerns instead of casting everything upon Him and not leaning on my own understanding! He truly is amazing. Now my thoughts are filled with gratefulness because despite everything, He didn’t allow for me to get eaten by loneliness.
4. What are your opinions about the phrase “Reflect on life?”
Sometimes, when people tell me to reflect on life, it does come a little condescending. It depends on how they say it.
Reflecting on life in its very essence is something we have to do once in a while. This will make us appreciate the things that we have and don’t have and the things we want to strive for. It is also a good time to ponder on the choices we have made and the paths we have taken. To reflect on life is to assess our current state of being.
5. Do you spend some time with yourself? If yes, then how?
I do have my ‘quiet time’ in the morning, when everyone is still asleep. But after work? It is hard because my husband and son are both so clingy! But these days, my husband generously allows for me to have an alone time without interruptions while I do some stretching with meditation – sounds like yoga right?
He also allocates some quiet time for me to write entries for my blog and do some content writing for a brand that I’ve reconnected with recently. After that, we’re back at homeschooling, house chores, Animal Crossing, reading, streaming… the things we do in my super little time available at home.
