Tidbits Here & There

I haven't posted much because nothing has been happening. Now the boyos are off school my whole life revolves around them. I'm spending most of my time at home, unless I have to go out for a meeting or errands. So yeah... I'm going to post about them a lot! and bore you with the adventures of my boyos ;p
A picture is worth a thousand words!
Oh! I have become an Aunt! 3amma!!! There was a conflict on the name, my brother always wanted Yazeed, and it was Yazeed this and Yazeed that, but at the last minute he changed his mind and named him Ahmed. So we have another Ahmed in the family. My Ahmed is protesting. He says "Ana Ahmed! hatha baby!"
Baby Ahmed is 3asal...and it was love at first sight with him!
As of next week my boyos are starting at their health club… I finally managed to brave the sun and heat outside and go to renew their membership. I might also join them, still thinking about it. We spend our mornings studying and working on a special project or cooking. Or sometimes when they are bored and restless and ready to start a war in my living room, I take them out. Their new addiction, Bowling! We've been spending a lot of time at Cozmos. Ahmed has become a pro at it.
The ball is bigger than his head!
Abdulaziz trying his hand at Billiards... Still needs practice.
I love the Winchester Brothers!
Afternoons, after lunch, I'd lock myself in my room the drapes drawn and its dark and cool, and I catch up on TV Shows I've missed. I think I've mentioned it before, I love paranormal and fantasy shows, always fascinated me. I watched Supernatural season 5, I found it better than season 4, but my favorite were the first two seasons which I watch from time to time, and I love the music! I also watched Blood Ties, based on Tanya Huffs books. I never read them, I'm still not that interested. The show is so and so… Nothing beats True Blood!!! I wish they make something for Anita Blake Vampire Hunter, even if crazy Lurell K. Hamilton doesn't want to sign anything with Hollywood. I loved her first 9 books, but then everything went down hill. The problem she is still being published even with all the negative reviews.

I'm reading Osman's Dream: The Story of the Ottoman Empire 1300-1923 by Caroline Finkel. It is a fun way to brush up on my history. I just love anything related to the Ottoman Empire. It is a 500+ pages book, with lots of references and notes. Very very interesting. If you like History then you will like this book.

Can I say I'm leaving the best for last??
