Hope it has been a good start to the year for you all. Here are our stories from this week
January 1, 2021
I have not hosted many parties or get-togethers. Earlier, it was because my house was really small. Once we moved to a bigger house, Covid ensued no one comes to our house haha. So to change the status quo, I began my new year by hosting my cousin. 😀 Alhamdulilah
Later in the evening, we went to a nearby park where we saw this beautiful sunset. The orangish-red hue of sunset time cannot be clearly shown through a lens or given justice to its beauty by words.
I do not have big dreams for this year but I do have small plans for myself InshAllah. Let’s see where it goes.

My brother got me some quirky finds from Ali Express and I just started using this today – A Mini Nano Facial Steamer (Amazon Affiliate Link). What a silly but useful product haha. It gives off a cool mist helpful in summers to combat the heat and helpful in winter by helping in hydrating and moisturising our face. It also has a skin analyzer which shows the level of hydration and grease on our skin besides a power bank

Back to Zoom. Back to Online class. On March 9, 2020, Qatar closed all schools and educational institutions. My daughter hasn’t stepped into school ever since! (Though Since Sept 2020 schools are working in 30% capacity and now with 50% capacity, considering her age and school situation, we felt it was better for her to continue online school) Her younger sister too joins her for the online classes for any interesting videos haha.

One of my small goals for this year is to – Move More! I frankly do not know if I can incorporate a fitness routine daily in my life with our current situation but I certainly can move more. Trying to incorporate 10 000 steps daily isn’t really easy as it looks. I either walk around the house, take my kids to a nearby park or do the Leslie Walk on Youtube. Voila

I am currently reading (Amazon Affiliate link) ‘The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Caroll’ and I am hooked. Though I have seen posts about Bullet Journal Method in the blogosphere, I did not really think of incorporating it into my life – Well, what do I do more than cooking, cleaning and clinic?! I was highly mistaken, I understand now. Bullet Journal Method is great for mothers and for people who have worrying thoughts running over their head always (like me). It is a to-do list, planner, diary, gratitude log all in one book customised to our own daily needs and life. You can doodle and make it artistic but if you want a plain-looking Bu-JO that’s fine too. Anything that works for you and your life.

Scary to climb uphill,
When you cannot see the zenith,
And do not have the will,
Often famished and not replenished.
The pink hue at the peak,
Makes me seek.
The path less travelled,
But so gravelled.
Reminding myself, one step at a time
To reach there, that goal, so mine!

In the Middle East, our weekends are on Friday and Saturday. So it is a lazy weekend mode for us. Meanwhile, I am getting into Bullet- Journal step by step!

I know some countries around the world are going into their third lockdown. Meanwhile a few thoughts on the way Qatar handled the pandemic. Thank you, Qatar
That’s all from us for this week. Stay safe 🙂
(Planning to do the Project 365 this year. Hope I stay consistent since consistency is something I struggle with…)
