The Self-Care Day

Two nights of long and deep sleep, and a wake-up for morning coffee with this girl, in town from Afghanistan. Spending time with her was a perfect way to roll into my day of absolutely nothing.

Excellent coffee.
Better food.
And a night cap with a favourite movie.

Feeling as though things are finally balancing for the foreseeable future inshAllah.

Today, I am grateful for:
1. Home-cooked meals. Everything just tastes better when from momma’s hands.
2. The smell of newly laundered sheets. I always think of Janey and her weekend laundry ritual when sinking into my newly covered bed, a little sea of fresh air.
3. Eid walnut stuffed pastries, dusted with powdered sugar. These are really the absolute perfect night caps.
