Big Blur Sunrise

By the grace of God, I have been up since 5 this morning. Once I stopped jet-lagging, it was no longer so easy to get up and exercise. I have been hating myself, knowing I really NEED this, but not enough to actually do it.

So I prayed. And there I was this morning, wooo hoooo, wide awake at 5. I got up and went to the pool, which was CHILLY, and I exercised. I had a note from my niece, Little Diamond giving me lots of encouragement yesterday – thanks, Little Diamond, I think it worked!

I was waiting for the sun to come up, to take a photo, but all I have is this big grey-yellow blur. Whatever is in the sky – dust? sand? – the sun cannot break through it. At 0600, however, it is still only 88°F / 31°C, and comfortable.

Whatever is in the air is worse now than it was an hour ago. Yesterday, my left eye felt like it had a piece of sandpaper in it; people tell me they get that all same thing all the time, or headaches. Thank God, I don’t have a headache, and today my left eye feels better but my right eye feels a little gritty. What is this???

I have a million projects lined up today, and time to do them! I love it when I get up early; the day has more hours, I get more done!

Hang in there, my fasting friends. Today is supposed to be a little cooler than it has been – only 105° F / 41°C – not the scorching temperatures of earlier in the week, and apparently not the humidity, either.

  1. Good luck with all the projects! The dust is getting to me too. The one blessing is that it’s not mixed in with humidity!

  2. You are right, Zahra, but it was kinda depressing, just dark grey to light grey and now back to dark grey again! I miss COLOR!

  4. Yes, Abu Yousef, thank you for asking. I really had to thank God! He gave me time yesterday to get everything done that I needed to get done. I am asking today for more of the same. 🙂
