Cave Under Construction

This week has been so busy for me! We got a few new book shipments in for the next school year and some things for the classroom (more on this later, InshaALLAH), including a couple of surprises thrown in from the husband (what a nice guy).

It was also confirmed that there is no gestational diabetes this pregnancy (woohoo!)so I thank you tremendously for your du'a. I spent about two and a half hours downtown at the hospital waiting to get my Rho(D) immune globulin injection so I couldn't fast that day. I hardly ate anything though. Once you get into the fasting mode, the appetite comes back a lot slower than one expects. I have to get these injections every pregnancy since I am Rh negative.

Here is our Cave of Hira.


Cave of Hira

It should be good with one more coat of paint. I am using it as practice for my daughter's Qur'an recitations. Each time she has to recite a different surah to get some goodies for herself and her brother and sister. So far there has been a bit of candy and an assortment of dollar store treasures. They are pretty excited about the whole thing so I am glad that we did it. Now I need to find a moment to finish painting it!

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sister Nakia,

OH this is so awesome!! I love it :D Definitely very 'cave' looking.. at least one of us got it right..hehe May I live this post to my site? And I like your idea of using for your daughters Qur'an recitation. You may also want to check out 'Party Packagers'.. they have great little things (very cheap) to add.

I'm also very happy to read your health is good, May Allah continue to bless you and the baby with good health. Ameen.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam
Love Farhana

Wa 'alaikum as salaam wa RahamatULLAHI wa Barakatuhu Farhana,

lol - the cave was okay. We - meaning me, never got around to painting it again.

AlhamduLILLAH, it was very good news for me, gestational diabetes is too much stress, so I'm glad that I don't have it this time.
