The Stuff Of My Heart


Our ranovation work is moving to it's final round thankfully. Painters are painting the rooms for now . It can take one and half or two weeks to paint whole hous. My younger son long ago has suggested the purple colour which I have found elegant after little googling. But hubby is against of one colour theme for whole residence so we chose middle way so purple is for living room and veranda, green for bedroom and blue for study room. I will show pictures once everything is done.

Weather is mild and absolutely beautiful! A little coolness is felt after midnight which makes us replace covering sheet with blanket though it doesn't happen if we eat fish in dinner. It reminds me a question that i want to ask from long time but forget once start typing my mind.

 Do you guys eat river fish or sea fish?  Or both ? Which one do you find tastier? Or which one you think is healthier? 

 Hubby has trimmed down whole Neem tree and few plants that have got thick layer of dust due to construction work and it  makes me sad little bit as we used to trim it in mid December mostly. 

 November is month of hope for me as a mother as my kids living far away  promise that they will visit  and we will be able to spend some family time together by the grace of God! 

For a person of faith Hope is everything as it has infinite  sense of peace! 

Sitting on the sofa in living room I can't look at my joyful Neem tree across the window right now though it is still there in my imagination. This is astonishing that things we see in our imagination look more vivid than reality.

 Soothing glow of sunlight showering over freshly washed plants feel perfect glory of the season and comfort to the eyes . Listening to the birds chirping gives  feel of village in winters. In summers fan running in full speed snatch away these soulful sounds but silence of winter retrieves them. 

We have to attend a marriage ceremony tonight. A beloved sister of one of the hubby's friends is being married. A kind former student of hubby who made us stay in his personal residence few times when we had started to visit Islamabad regularly 7 to 8 years ago. We rent our house now though but it is possible because that kind man find the place for us already and try to support us necessary furnishings too. His wife and four children joined him this year and i felt so happy that family is living together now as his wife seemed sad as she was living with her in laws for ten years while her husband had job in Islamabad. Finally she is with him and looked happy and satisfied when came to invite us for the ceremony. She just like her husband is very sweet lady with big heart as she had hardly let us cook our food during our stay in their neighbourhood in Islamabad. She would send us delicious dishes every day almost. I have photos few of dishes but they are in Google photos and i don't know how to bring here when using phone. 

Posting via phone so avoid mistakes if any please.

Wishing you all health peace and happiness in each day of life dear friends. 

Nobody knows perfect way to lead happy life but everyone is agreed that what we do comes around so why not doing good and being kind to all we encounter as this is only thing that we leave behind and it matters most!

  3. When a teacher I worked with a religious congregation of men in a school they ran. I I said to one of that group one day, “We live in hope,” and he commented, “And die is despair.” It spoke volumes I thought! I have never forgotten it or him. That is not how I chose to live or die!

  5. What great news about the renovations almost being done and about your son suggesting purple for the house color. It's my favorite possibly as my birth month is February with the amethyst as the birthstone. When we lived in VA, I painted the downstairs bathroom in that color! Looking forward to seeing the photos when you are able to post them.

    While it is unfortunate that your favorite Neem tree had to be trimmed, but it seems that it was most likely best for it and the plants with all the construction dust. And, hopefully they will grow back even better.

    As to your question about what fish we eat, it is most likely from the sea as we buy it in the local supermarkets. Favorites are cod, shrimp, and salmon. We eat fish and chicken most often both when at home and even when dining out.

    Nice to read about the wedding that you and your husband will be attending. I hope that your family will be able to get together soon.

    1. Purple is among my favourite though using it as paint was Ida of my younger son. I am so liking the first hand of purple in veranda workmen do the second hand tomorrow to make it darker. Glad you too like to have purple around: )
      My Neem tree is my third best companion in the yard after Hubby and sky :)so It hurt me for while to loose it's branches early but now I agree with you that it was for good.

  7. Fish? We live on a vast prairie. there are some lakes and rivers with fish. We don't get fresh seafood. One cannot compare fresh fish to frozen fish. It also depends on the species of fish you have. Some species are definitely better than others.

    1. We have attend some invitations by acquaintance of my eldest son in Karachi where sea fish is eaten because city has close by .we are river fish here which is less salty and less oily than sea fish. I think it will take time to be fond of sea fish for us as taste seems unusual quite rich

    2. I also meant to say we eat fish from the sea, so delicious and nutritious :)

    3. Great!
      I think it is more matter of being habitual. As when after fifty years of my life when I tasted sea fish it's taste was totally unfamiliar for me and little weird for my kids.i managed to eat piece of it as all dishes by host lady were delicious so must be the fish .She was curious how we found the sea fish specially and i replied that it is different yet good: )

  9. You are doing an excellent jog blogging on your phone, keep up the good work Baili.
    The room colours sound inviting and should look lovely and fresh when all is painted.
    Hopefully you and your family (sons) can all be together in the holiday time coming up, fingers crossed for you.
    I guess you will be pleased when all the renovations are complete.
    Fish, I believe fish from the sea is tastier as the fish have more variety of food to eat.

  10. It sounds very busy at your place, Baili! Lots of good work. We've been busy in the past few weeks but this week we're going to take it easy. Time to relax and just enjoy life. The painting of your home sounds wonderful. Everything will look so fresh, and you've made some pretty colour choices. And I know you will be so happy to have your kids at home to spend time as a family! Wishing you a beautiful and blessed week ahead.
