Cup Of Coffee For The Day and Cup Of Tea For The Night

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

I should be sleeping in bed but for some reason, here I am in the living room, wide awake. Sipping on tea. Thinking about everything and anything. I’m really tired. I kid you not on how tired I feel yet here I am wide awake and blogging away.

Okay maybe not entirely wide awake because I can feel the heaviness of my eyelids setting in.

Okay my brain is starting to turn to mush now. Let’s see if I can blog anything decent.

Oh! I had a lovely surprise today! Well, actually, yesterday since it’s past midnight. My undercover boss dropped by my workplace to have a cup of 100% Arabica with me. I still remember the first time we had one together there when we were just starting to know each other. We were just immediately comfortable with each other. Which is nice. And now I feel like we’ve grown since we last met at the place. He’s less tense now. I still remember feeling like there was a burden he wanted to share back then but he shook it off when I pressed him. As for myself, hmm, while I’m still busy with work, I’ve learnt not to get too caught up with the load and I’ve also learnt to appreciate everyone’s hard work — not just my colleagues but my vendors as well.

I think that place is going to be nostalgic for me. Anyway, I digressed. Yes, he mostly came for the coffee and hot ladies but hey, the fact that I’m given the honour of sharing a cuppa still counts as a lovely gesture. So cheers to him for that!

So that turned my day around positively and made it so much more bearable for me. I managed to get through the seemingly neverending laborious task of unpacking clothes from the boxes.

I also think I strained a hand muscle or a finger joint? It’s slightly painful when I open and close my left fist. My pinky knuckle does look slightly red and swollen. I hope it simply goes away when I wake up in the morning later. Haha.

Another lovely surprise is when my husband told me when I reached home that he saw a bigger sign of growth of my Holy Basil! Check it out!

I seriously don’t understand plants. Just this morning, I was struggling to photograph the tiniest signs of life and now, boom!

Speaking of plants, I was also greeted by seeds in the mailbox sent by the government! I received Lady’s finger seeds and Chinese Spinach seeds!

I’ll read the instructions in the morning. For now, I’m too beat to be absorbing any information.

So yeah. A day full of surprises. Ihana!

I’m very thankful. So very thankful.

Alhamdulillah, thank You, Allah, for Your blessings on me. – MM
