The month of Ramadan is more than half way over. It's been hot the entire month, well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit every day and today we had 75% humidity too. Thirst, not hunger, seems to be the thing that's bothering most people this year.
I try to stay inside as much as possible during the day with the ac set to the lowest possible temperature. This makes visiting my mother in law difficult because although she has air-conditioning she uses it sparingly. She has the idea that you can get loza tain (tonsillitis) or a cold in your kidneys if you use the ac. I'm not looking forward to spending Eid this year at my in-law's in the heat.
We're still in the process of moving. I'm glad we're doing it a little at a time because the house isn't a mess. We just move enough every day or so to easily sort though and keep organized. We're also still shopping for furniture. Today I bought some houseplants to put in the area near my desk. The kids are calling it a forest now. I still need some plants for the kitchen window. I'm not going to attempt the garden until the weather cools off (and the house is painted). It's getting there… slowly but surely.
There will be shopping for Eid and school clothes and supplies in the next few weeks. Life would be so nice if there were a Target or Walmart here – one stop shopping…. Sigh.. the heat is getting to me.
