My custom-made mattress arrived last night! My son-in-law brought it home and it is in my room. We’ll set it up today on a temporary frame until mine arrives in a couple of weeks. Bedroom furniture is custom-made to order as well. Soon I will have my own “space” in the villa! We get up at 3:45 am for salat-ul-fajr (the morning prayer) and I have been staying up afterwards for my morning cup of joe and a couple of fogs (I WILL quit, inshaAllah).
This is also my “me-time” for writing, doing my stretches, walking, and going over the plan for the day with my daughter. The grandkids are still doing exams at school so every day one or more of the 4 of them has to go for testing until May 22.
We are experiencing a “cool spell” for a few days – 80s during the day and 60s at night with no humidity. NICE! My granddaughter S will have a friend over for pizza at lunch, a little end of school celebration. R and M are graduating from the 9th and 6th grades, respectively, and there will be a bigger celebration at the end of May for them. Later this evening, my daughter and I will attend the housewarming (for ladies only!).
