New around here…

Subhana’Allah….

There are many verses in Quran that guide us to find out God’s signs in nature…..

He causes to grow for you thereby herbage, and the olives, and the palm trees, and the grapes, and of all the fruits; most surely there is a sign in this for a people who reflect

Chapter 16 Verse 11

I can never get enough of seeing new flowers in my garden…subhanaAllah

and I know that the magnolias will make an appearance shortly too….just bare branches and one or two leaves for now but I know I will not be dissapointed when that first flower is there…subhana’Allah….nothing beats Spring and all the newness of it…mash’Allah

And this one is new…the plan is to cover the ugly wall and metal fence at the front…the climbing clematis should do the trick insh’Allah….

And a new corner in my garden…a place to sit and ponder…sit and read…sit and crochet…sit and get my daily dose of Vitamin D…..

The missing ingredients on the top picture are olive oil and 4 triangles of The laughing cow cheese.

Oh and before you say anything..yes I have shared my produce with friends and neighbours…still plenty of courgettes for us…alhamdulilah…

Any other suggestions? What else can I make with courgettes?

Our first camelia japonica …I wish I could fast forward 20 years to see what this little plant of mine looks like when is fully grown and full of flowers…

My first experience of fuse interfacing…sure is a learning curve…a couple of times I have wanted to throw the towel but with the help of my online friends/mentors I’m getting there…there’s more to sewing a simple dress than I ever imagined…

and the very first time I share my weight here….and I wish it was the first time I dieted…I’m so tired of battling with my weight …tired of being overweight…tired of trying and actually many a times getting to my goal and then downhill again…tired of being unhappy with my body…anyways ….here we go again…going on a carb free lifestyle…maybe I should start a new page to track my progress or lack of it…and maybe if I share my ups and downs here…maybe an element of public humiliation might do the trick…or maybe I’m meant to be fat …..que sera sera…
