Snap Shot of My Life


So this is what I have been up to… A few pictures for show and tell.

First my husband took me to the Aquarium of the Pacific at Long Beach, CA. I loved it! Of course I have to say thank you to my sister and nephew. Why because my nephew volunteered there during the summer and my sister thought of us to give those tickets too. These little glow in the dark creatures lively the ocean bottom. I also was able to feed some birds they had their!’

Life in Darkness

Remeber the sewing machine my dad gave me? Well I have been using it and now it is not wanting to work right for the second time. I already sewed up one bag and I am almost finish with my second but it seems like I have a quirky machine. I think it just misses my dad so it gives me attitude so he’ll come and visit hmm…

Sewing maching

Yesterday I finally was able to color my hair with henna.. This is the first time that I have done coloring in my hair on my own. Usually I pay someone. I think it turn out okay… It’s not the red I wanted but in the sunlight you can tell, so for. Now I’m happy. The one benefit I also get is that I’m not harming my hair with chemicals and my hair comes out soft and shiny! So this will most likely be my way of coloring my hair, I just need to practice more to get it the right color.

Henna Dye

Say hello to my new little friend! I love this stuff! I put it on my hair heated it up for 30 minutes. My hair was soo soft and shiny!!’ I think with the combination of henna and this coconut oil my hair will be growing and be more healthy! The treatment for this is twice a week then as the hair gets softer and shiner reduce it to once a week then once a month…

Softer Hair

Of course with this heat I haven’t been feeling to well, my migraines are back and I haven’t been cooking or juicing as much. This week though I started walking with hubby then started my first juice today! I have to get back on it. I want to be healthy and if we want a family we both need to stay on the healthy wagon…

My writing is still going, I know I have not published a lot on here.. I will do my best to come on here.. I dropped my iPad a while ago (again) so when I try to use this app it closes on me. Right now I. Using the safari website but it’s a bit more complicated to use on a small screen… So please forgive me for not being in here that much.

I hope all of you are doing well and living life to the fullest!! I have one project I want to start soon but I’m not going to say it right now (I don’t want to jinx it).. Once I’m ready and have crossed all my T’s and dotted all of my i’s I’ll make sure I post it on here.

until Next time?

Take my Legacy, You are our new Generation


Needles, strings, and bobbins

I hear the call of the soft humm

I feel the cotton between

my itching fingers
Combine them together

Go slowly at first, if you press to hard

You might break the needle
Sixth generation through and through

Making clothes, fixing holes

This table has seen many of years

Families have enjoyed my labor of love

Now I pass my torch on to you
Our new generation; that is you

I give you my tools that I used long ago

Needles, string and bobbins
I pass to you our legacy

That was passed down to me

This is your badge of honor

This runs through your bloods
Get ready to hear your call

Get ready to pick up the cloth

Measure, cut and sew
You; the seventh generation

Take your legacy, my legacy

To thrive and sew away
  
This is my father’s sewing machine that he had when he first started his business. When he moved to his new place he did not have the space for it so he asked me if I would want it. He is a 6th generation taylor in his family, when I was a kid I asked him to show me but he told me that he wanted something bigger for me. Now that I have his sewing machine and I pretty much have a lot of time on my hands, I am going to learn how to sew a few things.. Need to start off slow before I get to the big projects Insha’Allah.

Wish me luck!!
Until Next Time,
