Only the first week of October and it has already been a very busy month.
My oldest son turned 19 on the 3rd and Eid Al Adha was celebrated from the 4th to the 6th. We've done lots of visiting with friends and running around over the past several days. Although my husband went back to work today, schools are still closed for the rest of the week which makes me very, very happy.
Whenever I have down time, I am still crocheting and doodling. And Jingles is my constant companion doing what she does best. Did you know that October 4th was World Animal Day?
Yesterday we spent the entire day with Kuwaiti friends at Khiran Resort which was built in the 80's. I walked a total of about 2 hours and then we biked for an hour so it was a very active day. A bit humid, but bearable.
The weather is slowly changing, still very hot in the afternoon, but nice in the morning and evenings. We made a trip to the plant souk where there was lots of color. Always so happy for the planting season to begin here.
Still much to look forward to in October -- our 20th wedding anniversary is on the 20th, my youngest boy will turn 16 at the end of the month and we will have another day off for Islamic New year. Lots of friends are having birthdays this month, too. And it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I think some pink crochet is called for. And let's not forget Halloween. A busy, busy month indeed.
Hope you are having a lovely month so far.
Best wishes and blessings,
