Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?
Answer: One floor house. There was a time when multiple levels were the core of my dreams. Not anymore.
If you have a TV, would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?
Answer: preferably I would like another room for it, but I want a small two bedroom house, so the living room will do.
When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time? Explain your answer.
Answer: I am a person who firmly believes in “Waste not Want not”. I hate to keep lights burning un-necessarily when a room is not in use. I prefer keeping one central light on, in the hall, and I switch it off when I go to sleep in my room.
What’s your favorite room in your home?
Answer: My bedroom, and secondly my kitchen where most of my time is spent.
Here the kitchen forms part of a bigger room — a dinning area, kitchen, and living room.
Back home the kitchen is built to one side where you can close the door to the rest of your home, which I do, and maybe others don’t. There was a time when a kitchen with pantry, and store rooms was built as a separate entity from the main house, which is no longer done.
I dislike cooking smells when meal times are over, and the smell still permeates the house.
I love a big kitchen which mine is. I always create a sitting area, and a niche for cooking books. All my gadgets have their own places (I am a gadget freak). I don’t have to search around when they are needed.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Answer: I am grateful to God for my life: past, present, and future. Thank you God (Shukr Alhamdulillah) for everything.
I had gone with my daughter to the Aquarium in downtown Houston. This fish kept on staring at me.
This week’s topic is roadscapes, the only requirement is that a road must be the main focus of your photo. So have fun with this topic and I look forward to seeing what all you bloggers come up with. Use your imagination and creativity with this topic.
This is my first time submitting photographs for Cee’s Photo Challenge. I don’t take many photos, but I had these on my IPad, so thought why not take part. I took those in August 2013, when I visited New York.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned
Ruins of a Temple, Cambodia. This photo was taken by my granddaughter M2 on a recent trip to Cambodia.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Show a photo that says GOOD MORNING.
I flick the comforter away and thrust my feet into the slippers. The next step is my mad DASH to the bathroom. If I don’t rush to the bathroom this next minute, my dear, sweet grandson H will HOG the bathroom for the next thirty five minutes. That will be an awful long wait for me.
“Good Morning,” the first part of my DAY is beginning.
I do my Wadu (Ablution), which is a must for saying my morning prayers called FAJR Prayers.
There I am standing in front of GOD. The prayer mat lies in the direction of KAABA, which is in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
Wherever you are in the world with the help of your compass you know the direction to face. I have recited my prayers in the privacy of my bedroom. There is no one to stop me from a meeting with my CREATOR. I don’t have to go anywhere to meet him.
God is Kind. God is Merciful. God is Great.
I peruse my beloved Book, “The Holy Quran.”
I can now go back to bed and sleep till eight or nine, whatever I feel like. When I wake up the second time I will be having my morning cup of tea.
To Start My Day
I am housebound, depending upon my son to take me out. Taking a photograph is a monumental or say formidable task for me. So what did I do?
I took five of my dopattas from my clothes. Hanged them and here is a kaleidoscope of colors.
