Wow! I have no idea where June went! It seems like time is flying by lately. But it is clear that summer is in full swing. School is out and the pools in Lebanon are starting to fill up. The heat is growing and when you don’t have electricity all the time, you don’t have AC all the time. Yikes! We got a fan last night that will run on the generator and that helped a lot in the sleep department.
My arabic lessons are coming along well. We haven’t had as much time to practice this last week but I have learned lots of new words and I am excited to hopefully be able to understand more by this time next summer. It is challenging to learn a new language but also fulfilling at the same time. 🙂
I made banana bread the other day and it was so yummy! I am having fun trying new recipes and also learning to cook Lebanese dishes. There is a lot I still need to learn about Lebanese cooking but my mother-in-law is such an amazing cook that I can learn from her. And all my sisters in law are also great cooks so there is no way I won’t learn soon. 🙂 I am glad I already loved to cook. That helps!
Many of you have shared that you enjoy reading the blog and keeping up with the new experiences and life in a new country. I wondered if there were any questions anyone has. It might be fun to have a question and answer post. So, comment and I will do my best to answer them.
Happy reading! 🙂
