I was in the middle of reading the Bible and sharing thoughts and notes... that was a while ago now! I have since bought a duplex, found a renter, moved our family, and unpacked during Ramadan.... even after all of that, I thought I'd share some things that are keeping me busy, and inshaAllah I can come back to a normal pace in life and take the time to read for pleasure again.
Coffee and my Kindle... a combo I am becoming very comfortable with! Right now I'm reading Ibn Kathir's Stories of the Prophets for a class I'm teaching. In one level of the class, I'm starting at Adam (as) and the other level is starting at Musa (as). My goodness, there is so much I could write about what I read from this. But alas, I don't have the time to really put the thought into it.
My two kids at a nature center about 30 minutes from our home. My oldest is doing a journal activity that I assigned as part of a homeschool assignment. My youngest... well, she's trying to play with wood chips and probably sneak in eating some dirt while I'm not looking. Homeschooling this year is keeping me busier, and alhamdulilah, I love it! I love being a part of her learning, and taking her on many trips (like today, we went to the arboretum and tomorrow we are going to a pick your own apple orchard)
Last, but not least, I'm trying to keep on top of the bountiful harvest we are getting from our CSA... but only when I can get the food from my youngest, who will snuggle with anything. Apparently, this squash was going to be her cuddle buddy while she took a nap this day.
So, I haven't forgotten about the journey I started, nor have I given up! InshaAllah when I finish a class I'm taking, I can pick some things back up. Life happens... and all to fast at that!
