Today is Eid for us. My MIL has been cooking since early morning. I’ve been  hiding out. I never was much for holidays so I try to be as invisible as possible. It helps that I work nights and sleep during the day so for the most part I can get away with not making an appearance.  My husband and […]

Time for Indie Ink writing challenge again. This week I was challenged by Diane and I have to admit when I first read her challenge I drew a total blank. It was way outside my writing style and I had no clue what to do with it so hopefully I did a little justice to it. I challenged Tara. You’ll […]

I know this past week must have been torture for you. Having to wait, wondering what the news was. I’m sure it was all you could think about. Well I FINALLY got things sorted and am so excited to announce that what started out as a little side endeavor is officially a DOT COM.  That’s right Indie Designz (http://www.indiedesignz.com/), my […]

A little late this week, but here’s my weekly Indie Ink writing challenge post. This week I was challenged by Transplantedx3 and my challenge went to Allison. You’ll be able to read her reply HERE. This week’s reply is slightly different. It’s all non-fiction; a first for me. Prompt will be at the end. ~~~~~~~~~~~ When I first read the […]

I have big news and I am super excited about it. I’m not gonna tell you yet. Yea I know I’m mean, but I couldn’t contain myself and had to tease you because I am super excited about all of the things that have happened in the last couple days. Once I get everything all sorted out I’ll be sharing […]

I have moments of weakness. When doubt creeps into the crevices of my mind and causes me to wonder if I truly am capable of being loved, appreciated, cared for.  Most of the time when these creepers come, I can quickly throw them out  and shut the door before they have a chance to rush back inside. However, some days […]

Now that I am starting to get back into a bloggy routine I thought I would again start my Writer Spotlight, but this week I am doing things a bit differently. I don’t have a “writer” to spotlight. Instead I wanted to share with you a couple blogs and writers who are doing amazing things to help writers promote/market/sell themselves […]

After months of being away from the Indie Ink writing challenge and worrying they would kick me out forever because I wasn’t able to participate, I am finally getting back on the II bandwagon. To get my feet wet again, Feisty Cat challenged me. The prompt was “no fancy espresso drinks for you”. My challenge went to Wendryn. You can […]

I posted a few days ago about the month of Ramazan. There are always lots of special treats  that are made during this month and some main foods which are typically eaten to begin the fasting day (sahoor “morning meal”) and to open one’s fast (iftar “evening meal”).  Usually in the mornings, a light meal is eaten. Fried paratahs are […]
