Musing : NOTD : Pumpkin Cream

It's been a long time since I really painted my nails with much consistency. Honestly it just hasn't been on my mind. My days and mind are usually filled with so much that when I look down at my hands during the beginning of another week only to sometimes realise there is only bits of polish on nails in a helter-skelter patches, I'd be lying if I said I was particularly bothered. I've really got much bigger fish to fry than peoples opinions about my chipped nails as I rush from class to class.

I love this colour!! I almost forgot I had it really, it's called 'Pumpkin Cream' and it really does remind me of delicious pumpkin soup, which is very much on my mind lately. I was going to do a fun seasonal design but then I broke my 15 year old bottle of Qurius Yellow polish and was very sad because I loved that shade and can't cant get my hands on a new one at the moment . :( I suppose it's just another lesson in the truth: that even the beloved bits of our lives can break and be lost forever. A bit of a morbid lesson I know but don't hate the playah hate the game bruh....

I've also taken to grabbing a photo before I do my final nail clean up because if I don't grab it in that moment when I'm forced to be still lest I smudge them, I feel like I'll never get it! I'm extremely easily distracted after all made only worse by the multitude of things I have to do. My brain is on fire!

Peace. Love. Pumpkin Cream Goodness yum.

Throw Back Thursday :: That time i went to Sandy Island

 This is a little island just of the coast of my own. It is a part of our territories and so though generally uninhabited, locals often make the ten minute trip by boat to visit the island and cook a meal together with the fresh fish caught just footsteps from the sand. That day in 2011 I went with a group of friends and it was lovely. I really ought to consider going back now that I think about it, the little island is so beautiful!

In the picture you can see ruins of a great house left over from the days of colonial rule. I love walking into places like that....the walls speak to me of different norms, different fashion trends, feelings of people long gone who  wondered at me as I now wonder at them, though never the two shall meet.

Peace. Love. History.

Lately :: Rainy Season

Here we have two seasons dry seasons (spring and summer) and rainy season (fall and winter)

I enjoy the rain. especially when it pours and it makes it cool. When goats feel they must stand on old tires because they feel like they will drawn in the dirt...sink and disappear into the very thing that just yesterday, perhaps even just moments ago, sustained them.

I strangely savour those moments when the sky is so dark you can not tell if it is six am or six pm and there is thunder and there is lightening and the streets of the city are littered in umbrellas of every colour like a big bright banana yellow circle that looks to be dancing its way through the spectrum of grey.

Oh what a sight it is when nature forces the movement of man to slow and remember that she is only letting us think that we are in charge...Days like this make me wonder if He placed his love in obvious places in hopes that we would see it.... So on days like these I feel very loved, I enjoy the rain. I enjoy the little spontaneous down pours miraculous living sustaining rain.

What sudden titbits of beauty do you enjoy?

Peace. Love. Droplets of Beauty.
