Ankara Train

Tribal 1 by

Hi everyone, How was your weekend? Hope your week started on a good note.


Why do Mondays have to be so long? Each time I looked at my watch, it felt like it never moved a second and everyone at work looked so drowsy, tired and quiet…I guess it was the “Monday Blues”. To add to this, the office was freezing and I had no jacket. All I could think about was my bed, blanket and a cup of hot chocolate or capuchinno. 🙂

Anyway, this is my weekend recap. I had a nice relaxing weekend which started Saturday in the afternoon as I worked a few hours earlier that morning. After work on Saturday, I went for a photo shoot, which was fun with the exception of the blazing sun and heat wave which was unbearable. My photographer friend Paosin and I looked like we seriously needed a cold drink and nap. At the end, I was happy because the pictures turned out great.


Leaving the photo shoot location in a haste, I forgot my brogue on the floor, right next to my car and drove away to my friend, Vera’s house. When I got to her house, I realized I left my brogue…I was so exhausted and probably dehydrated that I didn’t know whether to cry or laugh at that moment. Thank goodness Vera rode with me and I was fortunate to find my shoes in the same spot. She made some food, which was nice because I badly needed a meal at that point.

Vera was supposed to assist me with email related questions, but instead, we chatted late till the AM…yep, girl talk never ends. In all, I had a nice time at her place, had an amazing meal and took some home LOL!

On Sunday, after church, I planned to relax and edit some pictures, while hubby went out on a video gig (you can check out some of his wedding videos here). Instead, I ended up mounting two new rolling garment racks, which I bought from Target as the one I had kept falling…blame it on Walmart’s cheap sale LOL! Again, rather than assembling the racks, I suddenly found myself organizing the whole closet and by the time I realized it, I had spent almost 3 hours doing God knows what in that room. At least now, I have an organized closet 😉
