Saturdays with Dee

I am an early riser on weekends. A fresh pot of coffee always put me in the mood to kick start my day.

Breakfast is usually Eggs 🍳, bacon 🥓 and toast 🍞.

Chores:

✔ Laundry

✔Cleaning my apartment

✔Grocery Shopping

✔ Bill Payments

✔ Shopping

The streets are always chaotic on a weekend, the malls are super busy and it’s funny I’m seeing Christmas decorations everywhere. I would love to get my gifts early this year.

Chores may vary dependent on the weather. I try my best to get as much done so that I can just relax for the rest of the day.

My favorite spot in the house is in my bedroom in my little chair by the window with my books in arms reach. This is where I spend most of the time until late at night. My books are keeping me sane these days and I’m happy I’ve started reading.

What’s your routine like on a weekend?

Met in an Accident….

I thought everything was going great for the most part. It’s crazy how one minute you feel like you have total control and in the space of a second you lose it.

We had a little fender bender the other day, a few scratches to our car and the other vehicle. We were a bit shaken up but everybody is okay. We exchange information and took pictures, you know the usual when you have an accident. Both parties agreed that we weren’t going to solve the matter through our respective insurance companies. Fine, cool.

We got an invoice from the other party to fix the damages; sizable fee, we paid and thought everything was good.

Fast forward to today, I just got an email from my insurance company, they are asking for a detailed report of the alleged accident that occurred almost 3 weeks ago.

Now of course I’m about to blow a fuse, why is John Doe claiming for the accident when we sorted everything out. Called my husband and vented to him.

John Doe says it’s a simple misunderstanding he just mentioned it to the insurance company as a common courtesy he sent them a follow up email to let them know he’s not seeking a claim.

I’m still thinking about how I feel about all of this. I haven’t even touched my books or done any reading as you can imagine.

On a happier note I’ve started reading The Family Upstairs-Lisa Jewel and my interest is already peaked.Currently on Chapter 2. I got this book in my Book of the Month Subscription. Use code BOOKUP to get $9.99 for your first order.Book of the Month

When it Rains…

It’s raining where I am. The sounds of the raindrops is very soothing to the ear. Its as if each droplet is in a rush to see who’s going to catch the ground first. I laugh because I’ve never thought of that before.

I love the rain, especially now that I’m snuggled up in my room with this book 📖. We’ve already had dinner; shrimp pasta and garlic bread, yummy!.

I can hear the sounds of frogs and crickets moving about. They’ve been displayed by the rain. Trying to find somewhere warm and safe.

When it rains I reflect more. I think about the present, the future and all the amazing things that I want to achieve. Its important to never take anything for granted. You are enough, you are important and you can be the change you want in this world.

Talking about the change I’m not certain if you’re aware of what’s happening in Nigeria 🇳🇬 What is SARS?. I’m saddened by all the persons who are being killed for standing up for what they believe in. Let’s pause and say a prayer hoping that things will change soon. #PrayforNigeria #EndSARs

Give thanks that you’re in a better space and never take anything for granted.

As always, I hope you’re Ok and safe😊.

I’m miserable, that’s the truth….

You’re always reading, 😑 annoyed my husband said to me. He’s been nagging me to spend more time with doing anything else other than being tucked away in our bedroom reading books.

It’s been several months since the pandemic. We would be much busier trying to maneuver our respective jobs , raising a toddler and making things work.

It’s not easy, things are not the same or as they used to be. Our lives have been uprooted and so we have to get used to the new norm. We have conflicting schedules, online schooling taking care of a sick parent. Listen, I’m always cooking, juggling being a wife and caregiver but this sh*t is just too much. I thought I was going to lose it. Things got tighter, financially and while we’re still okay I had to cancel most of my subscription boxes, yes I had to make sacrifices we both had.

So, on October 5 I created this blog. I didn’t know what I was doing, still don’t ,but like all things before I’ll figure it out. I started reading books. One good book led to another, and another you get the picture. Book Reviews came and like this post in between ramblings. I haven’t set up a schedule just yet but I’m working off my mood for now.

How has Covid-19 affected your life?

Reading books and posting on my blog has been helping me not to go completely insane.

That’s all for now, I’m currently reading #WIldGame by Andriene Brodeur-

Until next post….
