Surah Takathur is finished, AlhamduLILLAH

SubhanALLAH it has been nothing but busy times around here lately. My husband was on vacation the past few weeks so this is our first real week without him here during the day. Twice a week I have the Women Scholars course and I need to devote time for it daily. Also, I've stepped up my own memorization - something that I've been neglecting, and I'm trying to fit in a tajweed course as well.

On a personal note, I mentioned some time ago that I have been tracing my family tree. AlhamduLILLAH a cousin that I didn't know before has been tracing our tree for about ten years or so! He has so much information that I don't have time to enter all the information into the database. I've been obsessing over it for about a week (and so has my mom and a couple of uncles, lol).

We had a power outage for most of the day and it got so cold! SubhanALLAH, it's 20F here (-7C). My daughter managed to learn Surah Takathur on her own this evening after the power returned (using Qur'an Explorer), so I think that we will be adding Q.E. to our morning routine from now on, InshaALLAH.

Since we grew grass a few weeks ago, my daughter has the gardening bug. This is her bulb of garlic, see the sprout? I hope that we can really keep it alive. We have a history of getting them going and then they die! Any advice?
