You might think this post belongs to Foodie Mondays but I’m actually focusing more on the sustainable aspect rather than the food itself, but of course I won’t leave you without giving you a recipe 😉 Being sustainable is ultimately being balanced and having resources continue in your lifetime as well as the lifetime of those who’ll come after us. One of the main things I love to do is just making everything at home. I’ve mentioned it before in a few blog posts so you might be tired of me saying it, but it’s true.
Reflection time! It’s been a while since a #Deep Thursdays blog was written and this looks like it’s the right time. It won’t be long, I promise, and it won’t have pictures, I apologize.
From the title you pretty much get the gist of it all.. basically time is going by SUPER fast and we’re held accountable for what happens during this short amount of time. It’s crazy how you think you got all the time in the world when really… you don’t.
So this blog post is just about a week late since Ramadan already started but I still think, and believe, that some people don’t have their Ramadan decorations up yet (if that’s the sort of thing you do). The month is going by super fast but there’s no excuse not to celebrate the month and put up some decorations. I’m here to help with that 😉
After the St. John beaches reviews in a previous blog post, I thought I’d continue and talk about the food/accommodation there. St. John is mainly a national park that occupies more than half of the island. The rest of the island is made up of beaches, gift shops and shacks, places to drink/restaurants and some homes up on the hills with a few companies here and there.
There are certain desserts and drinks that come out on during the holidays. Why? I have no idea. I’d much rather have all this goodness everyday but because we’re “health-conscious” I’ll just thank God they only appear once a year 😛 During Ramadan there are MANY different desserts that are taken to the next level with people’s creativity. I, personally, like to stick to classics.
Since we’re in the month of Ramadan, I thought this would be a great opportunity to talk about money. We try to save money as much as we can but it’s so ironic that in the month of giving, we often waste a lot of money rather than putting it to use. This happens all year round but, unfortunately, I’ve come to witness it most during this holy month.
Quilling has been around for quite some time but somehow it’s starting to die out. It’s pretty sad that not a lot of people appreciate the time, effort and creativity that goes into it For that reason, I thought it would be cool to share some quilling pieces that have been made by myself, my mother.
