If I had nothing to do, I’d probably be tucked inside my cozy blanket either reading or sleeping. Simply because the weather is not very conducive for a active day but a lazy one. Nairobi residents woke up to a chilly morning accompanied by dull clouds so as to say ‘you can stay in your beds all day’. Ha! Only if it was possible. Here’s how to be ready for cold weather.
If ever there was one thing that ladies would be rated for doing best, would be hanging out (in my opinion). There are tons of things that two or more women can find to do together, most importantly things that edify the Lord (yeah! I am that lady). Most times, my husband’s company is more than enough for me, but once in awhile I hook up with the girls, for some kind of activity. Even better are the days when we hang out as couples (each lady with her husband plus kids if any) it’s usually total bliss. The sad part is having to leave for our homes. Infact, recently we had such kind of a gathering, even after spending the afternoon together we were threatening to spend the better part of the evening hanging out as well. Those days, the only consolation we have is that, we will spend eternity together, where time won’t define our fellowship. Never to part no more! Glory! I am starting to feel religious already.
Hello! It’s Thursday, do you know what it means? Pizza…?? Wait, is there any pizza joint that has an offer on thursday? I wouldn’t know, maybe Debonairs, not sure.. Ok turns out I have been posting recipes here on thursday consistently without knowing, so I am thinking I might keep the trend, you never know. Today we are featuring fish fillet, and this is a special one from my sweet darling sister (love love to the moon and back). I mentioned here how our family has very talented cooks, sometimes I wonder why none of them never trained to be a chef, it is a mystery. Back to my sweetest sister, not to mention she is an excellent cook, one of the reasons I love her :-). Her meals are super delicious, you will find yourself licking your fingers, literally! I am thinking it might be a good idea to feature her on the blog sometime. I’ll try and convince her and if you are reading this dear, put it into consideration.
Fish fillet meal to cook in under ten minutes (if you know your kitchen so well) . Let’s get down to it shall we?
He said that he wanted us to watch a movie, I looked at him so as to say, “you gotta be kidding”. Turns out he was pretty much serious. I was still skeptical even as he was busy setting up and all. Why? We don’t usually watch movies for leisure only for specific reasons, mostly for a good lesson. For me, It was quite a journey before I got there, but I did. Want to know how? Read on.
Hey! It’s kitchen time, are you ready? Who me? I was born ready. Being a sweet tooth mama is very cool and enjoyable for the kids until they get cavities. My mum loved baking, I believe she still does, only that her sweet little girls (even the boys) succeeded her in the baking game. I wasn’t that much of a baking fan, mostly I would gladly devour what my siblings had made. I hopped into the baking bandwagon after I got married (you gotta spoil the guy man!). See getting married has to be the best thing that happened to anyone, I am a tried and true testimonial guys.
I’d wake up in the middle of the night and always find him in the sitting room. Tucked in his favorite sweater, sweet slippers and his eyes glued on his ipad. What time does he sleep anyway? I wondered and never confident enough to ask. After dinner we always had family time where we would all sit in the living room listening to each other’s stories. Whether bored or not most times I found myself grasping the couch with my little arms trying not to fall off. Yes, at that time my eyes are heavy with sleep I can almost peep into the dreamland window.
I’ve always wanted to be the best wife I mean the most supportive one. The number one fan and cheerleader of my prince charming. I figured to do that I had to come up with small habits to help me gear towards my goal. On that note I always try my best to celebrate him whenever he achieves or even when he fails to achieve (he rarely does but well). This time round I surprised him with a self made pizza (my own recipe, teren teren). I wasn’t sure how it would come out but I was sure he would love it!
So I am up working through my daily routine then my sweet prince charming offers to make breakfast for me. That had to be the sweetest thing I heard today. With a broad smile on my little face and feeling guilty about it (he still goes to work after that and I stay at home) I accept the generous offer. Cause he is so much of a chef, he lists the items he wants to use (sometimes his sweet little wife is picky) I am like yeh!
If you are anything like me, you would know it’s never that easy. Yes! That one thing that you wish you had, a boyfriend. Throughout primary school, high school even campus I’d watch my fellow girls hanging out with their so called boyfriends not knowing what it meant to be one.
Have you ever thought about something so profoundly that you felt like walking into space? I have. My thoughts about setting up this blog have been lingering in my mind for so long now such that I had to go ahead and make it happen. Now that I am back to work after my five months or so maternity leave I am super charged.
