Oh, finally! I couldn’t get on this site for like a week! My computer was all wonky and stuff and I was at my wits end…but alas, this fairy princess came along sprinkling happiness dust and astounding wit all over the place and helped me out. Thanks to Hasina, everything seems to be fine on my side again. And in good timing, I was about to throw the damn thing out of the window.

So talk about climate change! Last week this time, I couldn’t get out of bed, it was bloody freezing because it was snowing on the Drakensberg mountains. I even sat around the house with a huge blanket. Then WHAM! Come this week and if it gets any hotter I’m sure I’m going to melt, literally.

To beat the heat, we went on a picnic yesterday. Actually we went swimming and just took snacks along. It was DIVINE. The swimming I mean. Did I ever mention how much I love swimming? First one in, last one out…that’s how it is, always has been. I could swim for hours, days even. Even all the cuts and bruises from climbing in and out of the 22 meter diving pool doesn’t bother me. I have to go back next week.

Anyway, this is just a short note wishing everyone who celebrates, a joyous and blessed Eid-Ul-Adha…and a Happy Thanksgiving to those observing too. I’ll be with my family and extended family, as usual, and there’s even talk of breaking the rules and swimming tomorrow afternoon, if the heat persists. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend, no matter where you are. And by all means, over-indulge ;)
