It was about time. I have missed being in this space. Kerry’s Blog may have been quiet for a while but I have been trying to keep up with everyone via Twitter. Though my schedule will still be hectic over the next couple of weeks, I am committing to posting at least once a week because my readers are important to me. Over the next couple of weeks, there will be a couple of tweaks here and there to improve your experience on this space.
So this is what I have been upto lately….
Watching endless YouTube for healthy eating ideas and trying to satiate my planner addiction. Loving Domestic Geek and Jenny Penton .Plus anyone in social media especially if you want to up your YouTube game, you should watch Amy Schmittauer on Savvy Sexy Social
Reading journal article after journal article. Now I know why PhDs stand for Permanent Head Damage.
Making couscous salads! Seriously, recipes can’t get easier than this. I never knew that such a grain existed in my life. The first time I heard couscous, my mind went back to the DeeDee and her imaginary friend called Cousy who had incurable laughter ..remember from Dexter’s Lab….in Cartoon Network ( Yo! Shout out to the kids who grew up in the ’90s). Anyway, this grain is super-cheap, nutritious and its is a perfect substitute for rice. Does anyone know where I will be able to get in Kenya? Next on my cooking list….quinoa.
Missing Kenya (without the floods and terrorism) like crazy. I can almost hear Jean Valjean singing “One Day More”
Eating chocolate and vanilla ice lollies. I never thought that summer would roll around.
Drinking lots of water. I am finally raising my water drinking game.
Needing xoxos from my family plus all-day train ride across Scotland or England. Every time we pass through the countryside, I feel like someone threw me on the set of some Jane Austen movie. Well, this one reminded me of the Count of Monte Cristo
Loving the Swahili translation of hashtag (alama ya reli) and social media (mitandao ya kijamii)
Marvelling at the flower bush across the street from window. Every time I peep outside, someone is taking time to smelling the roses, literally.
Thinking Plotting my Post-Glaswegian life including the future of Kerry’s Blog
Feeling anxious about my dissertation.
Listening to Josh Wilson and Laura Daigle. I recently discovered Mercy Me’s new album. The jury is still out on this one. But I can see why Shake got incredible reviews. I think I Can Only Imagine and Crazy will be my top picks from them. Special mention goes to Myleik Teele’s #MytaughtYou Podcast. I have been ploughing through her podcast over the last week and I think I am that I am almost done going through. I definitely love her #MyleikBookShare on Instagram.
Wondering what it would have been like to live in 1940-1950s era. I love their fashion. Think Mad Men.
Noticing that my hair needs some more TLC. The Scottish elements have not been kind to it….Yes, I am on the shea butter bandwagon but I am definitely giving my tiny locks extra attention. Watch this space.
Enjoying the sporadic Scottish heatwave
