Amazing Day

Yesterday turned out to be one of those days that surprise you. I didn’t have a lot of hope for the day, I started off feeling negative and thinking about cancelling appointments. My head has been a little stuffy, I have a mild cough, altogether, I am not in peak form.

I decided to keep my appointments, which required preparation, and the prep turned out better than I had expected. In fact, the entire day was full of unexpected blessings.

First – I know not all of Kuwait experienced it, but the storm! Lightning! Rain! Rain in late late April! Whoda thunk?

Then, the light – drama drama drama – dark dark clouds, but sunlight on the white-capped water, bringing out all the shades from turquoise through jade and lapiz into deep purple – oh, what joy! Last but not least, the wonderful breeze that kept everything from being hot and sticky – what a day! What I might have missed!

  3. Hello, Kinano! What are you reading these days?

    Darya, yes! Around Ahmadi, in fact I was afraid some of the oil thingies were going to get hit! It was very dramatic – you would have loved it! 🙂

  4. I thought I heard thunder rumbling just before I woke up (working nights still). Had to see it if it was really there so I looked out my window – no clouds, no rain, nada, nothing! Thought it might have just been the wind making noise through the vent shafts in the apartment. Glad to know I was completely bonkers!

  5. *sighs in rapture* ohhh the blue of the water…the many times did I walk along those? And I think back to the thunder..the our neighborhood, the children would be out running in it, giggling and laughing and screeching for joy, maids chasing after them, lol..SO much fun. I MISS KUWAIT!
