Already a is week gone since I wrote my last little post… mashaallah, time flies and there are so many things to do, alhamdulillah :
- praying Istikhara about all those things to come,
- organizing some medical visits for our little girl who has a very bad hearing since her birth. We already removed some growth and put some grommets in her ears (your treatment recommendations are very much appreciated if you have some experience with the same problem!) but need now to see if things go better or if there is a deeper problem (please keep her in your dua’. JAK).
- leading the enrolling for the next school year.
- a lot of things to plan and to think about for the future of the school, about exams and a curriculum to prepare and about the youth project in general (inchaallah I will write more about it soon).
- keeping care of our new little rabbit family and an extended garden with a lot of things in growth, alhamdulillah (thanks God we had a lot of rain during the last week).
- a whole pile of things to store, to mend, to clean … and some many other ideas in my head about what I want to re-organize, to sew, to make new, inchaaallah.
I got a pile of really great new books from friends which are a wonderful inspiration and which I recommend to you.
So when I find a little moment to just be, I try to calm down, to re-center my thoughts, I drink tea (yes, I got a new Swiss mug) and I read in those books:
John Seymour: “Das neue Buch vom Leben auf dem Lande” (“New complete book of self-sufficiency”),
Naomi Aldort: “Von der Erziehung zur Einfühlung” (“Raising our children, raising ourselves”),
Susanne Fischer-Rizzi: “Medizin der Erde” (“Medicine of the earth”) and “Mit der Wildnis verbunden”,
Ursel Bühring: “Mit Ursel Bühring durchs Pflanzenjahr”,
and the ever great Sisters-magazine, which is a wonderful way of boosting my ‘deen (faith).
Happy week’s end, happy reading and happy May to you!
