I'm not asking for too much am i?

The news lately has been packed with the wild weather that's being experienced in the US, UK and Europe. Frankly, i wish i were there! Where i live, it snows only one day in the year, and i'm usually stuck in classes or an exam therefore don't get to go out and enjoy the ankle deep snow that's covering the city. 

This past week, we've also been experiencing some wild weather.  No, it hasn't been snowing. My friends in other parts of the country have been raving about the fabulous weather they've been having, but here in Dunedin, it has been raining non-stop for the past week. Off course rainfall is barakah, but it always puts me down. I just become lazy, and tend to stay home in my pj's and do absolutely nothing.

I had planned to go out and take a nice shot of the city at sunset, but all this rain forced me to put that idea on hold.  And what's worse is that they predict the rain would stay over us for till at least the weekend. I'm not going to be in town over the weekend, and i'll probably miss the sunshine. It's been a while since i've sat down in my front yard with an engrossing book in one hand and a chilled drink in the other.

Oh how i wish i lived in a warmer country. I could really use the heat, and no, the heat projected from the fireplace does not do it for me.

It's finally brightening for us, but we're going to Chch tomorrow and it seems like we're taking our weather with us, it's forecasted to rain all weekend =(

I miss you too Shahirah!! Your pics from Umra are gorgeous! Makes me want to go.

If it's not too much trouble then i just need some hijab pins like the ones the Malay girls wear, not many, just maybe 5 or 6. Also, if i'm not imposing then if you see a mustard-yellow rectangular hijab i would love it if you got me 2, one for me and one for Zainab!

Come back already... i have BIG news!!

Hijab pins.... like brooches? Or pins from a pin-wheel? Maybe you can show me some pics so I don't get the wrong ones. Haha, mustard yellow hijabs, inshaAllah! With patterns or or plain?

BIG news? Ok, I'm nervous. Should I be? Is this about someone we know? You? Me? A friend? Family member? I need to know, the suspense is killing me!!!
