I'm Such a Good Wife

My husband never gets up for hotel breakfast, ever. Me, on the other hand, can not forgo those breakfast included offers. I gave up trying to get my husband up and am fast giving up with my daughter too. So this morning I was able to fix him a tray from the buffet and bring it back to the room for him (see photo). With thanks to the lovely helpful staff at Ibis Styles Diplomatic Area, Bahrain, which is a new, fabulous, well-priced hotel that we got at an irresistible price and are really pleased with our choice. Okay, so I get back to the room having had breakfast alone (no problem so used to it now) and tap on the door for a few minutes with my foot as carrying a tray of breakfast and as I didn't take the key - because didn't want the a/c in the room to go off and wake my sleeping beauty. Bed-head husband finally answers the door and is a bit grumpy at being woken up. He slowly realizes I have food for him and starts perking up a bit. After his first sip of perfectly made cappuccino he asks how to spell my surname for the wi-fi connection. Surprisingly, we have a great 30 years long wonderful relationship even if he can't always remember how to spell my name. 

Compromise, love and laughter are key. Happy new year.

Filthy from our recent trip to the farms in Abdally. 
Note to self never to wear these again to a farm.

Ready to roll: Brush to remove all the dirt and dust. 
Toothbrush, soap and water to scrub the white base. 
Black polish for the leather and the fabric part.

Not bad at all. Feeling pretty chuffed with myself for saving these guys. 
Now to go re-pot the orchids.

Wisdom and Enlightenment from Eckhart Tolle


People don’t realize that now is all there ever is; there is no past or future except as memory or anticipation in your mind.”  ~ Eckhart Tolle

Life is the dancer and you are the dance.

Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.

What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.

Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.

Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world.
