My heartfelt apologies...

So I've been a bit AWOL.
I don't know if I have any blog readers in these past few months, but I don't really blame them if they've given up on reading this blog.

I've been moving continents, visiting family and friends, actually managed to watch a few Fifa World Cup 2010 matches in between all of that, and now I'm finally settling in back to the life that I'm used to in good 'ol South Africa.  It feels like I've never left, which is quite strange.  Did I really live in the USA for  10 months?  Did I really love using public transport?  Who was that person?  *sigh*  I miss Boston a whole lot, yet I'm quite happy to be home :)

Now that Ramadan is coming up, I'm thinking a lot of what I need to get done over the next month.  That means Deen (my religion, Islam) will take priority over Dunya (the everyday, mundane trappings of this world)  right now.
I'm on the search to become a better muslim, a better wife, a better daughter, a better sister and a better aunt, and overall, a better person.  I seem to have a serious case of the 'internet blahs' and I just can't seem to get that interested in it anymore.  I guess it's a good thing.  I haven't been able to pursue the things that I love as much as I would like to, so this is the time to focus on those subjects.  Quraan, Tafsir, my never ending studies at Unisa, and of course my never ending search to find the perfect baklava cheesecake recipe, will take preference over everything else at the moment :)
So I'm working on everything slowly, starting with this blog which I'm working with in offline mode.
I have plenty to do and even though I do hope I can finally kick this blog off properly, I don't see it happening until the end of September.

My apologies to whoever still reads this.

    By the way, with regard to that "Reviving the Islamic Spirit" conference in Cape Town - it's still undecided at this time. I'll let you know whether it's going to go ahead or not.

  3. Fatima,
    Stop at nothing at your quest for that Baklava Cheesecake. That sounds delicious.
    Creamy tangy, cheese ensconsed around Flaky buttery layers of phyllo, topped with carmelised pecans and walnuts with hints of Rose Ryrup.
    Wahhh, HELP!
