happy ayyam-i-ha!

Happy Ayyam-i-Ha to all you lovely people out there!!!
Been to several Ayyam-i-Ha parties so far. Tonight’s party was in Sector 1 (East-end Ottawa) and included truckloads of yummy food like zereshk polo and kookoo sabzi. OMG I love kookoo sabzi. um anyway. lots of hanging around and chillin and being all friendly and together and having fun and eating. On Saturday night I had the pleasure of hanging around at Julie and Fanfan’s place after our weekly children’s class, after which they invited family and friends for an evening of togetherness and amity and eating lots of Haitian food. You know—plantain, grilled salmon, and a delicious dish made with beans and rice. We played Jenga until we went nuts. Fanfan was crowned Jenga King, with Paul coming in a close second.

Wednesday night is the Feast of Alá, and after that, the Fast starts. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to print out your very own list of sunrise and sunset times, and check out some fasting tips to help you get the most out of the Fast this year. Got some tips you’d like to share? Post a comment!

  1. Ah…technology.

    As I sit finishing up my Healthy Servings Ezine, the last one before I start the Fast, when all of a sudden on my screen pops this Google Alert wishing me a “Happy Ayyam-i-Ha”.

    Naturally I click the link to see who is sending me these greetings and here I am now at your blog.

    Happy Ayyam-i-Ha back to you.

    Hope your Fast is a good one too. Personally I have never had a bad one, though some have been more “challenging” than others:)-

    Well, its 3:45 a.m. so I better get back to it…

    This third shift is a mess, but I’m loving it.

    This is Lo and I gotta go … ’cause I’m runnin for my life.

  2. Да уж, судя по комментариям тут на сайте, никому не повредит умение ярче высказвать свои мысли, поддерживать интересную беседу, быть остроумным в конце концов… 🙂
