Joy Pockets

It`s been another hot and fairly non-eventful week here in Marrakech so I have had to dig deep for some pockets of joy but they are there if you look hard.

 Joy Pockets
 an unopened big fat envelope from the States
finding inside a tower of new pretty fabrics
Kumari Garden fabrics by Dena Designs for Freespirit
comparing my 3 year old`s efforts at removing his T shirt to Houdini extracating himself from a straitjacket
sitting with my husband on our bedroom balcony late at night
generous comments from incredibly talented women
the stillness of normally busy streets after the fast breaks
my son`s capacity to siest anywhere
 a lovely recipe book and feeling inspired to cook something new
 a cool shower in the heat of the day

Joining in with the weekly fun over at Monica`s.

Lovely photograph of your sleeping son.

Wouldn't it be great to be able to fall asleep anywhere!

I'm dead jealous of Zaki. Because he is so beautiful and more so his ability to sleep anywhere.

Carin said...

Such nice pockets. The balcony in particular seems particularly wonderful!

Catherine said...

Isnt it amazing how kids can sleep anywhere! Jealous of your weather, although it is sunny here today, but yesterday it hosed down!

You find joy is so many things. What a wonderful outlook you have. The balcony is especially joyful. Z looks so sweet. There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping child!

Beautiful, Beautiful pockets! Your son is gorgeous. I wish I had a balcony off my bedroom! :) The t-shirt removal description is the best!! Have a lovely weekend!

Your son really is the cutest thing ever. Enjoy these moments - they pass so fast...before you know it he'll be looking cool wearing trousers that hang off his backside and having Justin Bieber hair...I know, it happened to me!

Napping is a wonderful art!
Well done Zaki!

Today is my day for discovering wonderful new blogs - I found you after you won Diane's giveaway. Have enjoyed reading and looking here - Marrakesh is one of those places I've always wanted to visit, but haven't managed yet.

I love that you get to sit late night with your husband on the balcony, that is divine. I do not have a balcony but when ever we travel to Sedona, az, the our room at the hotel has a balcony and we sit out late into the night and have the most wonderful deep conversations. Thanks for triggering that memory for me! Have a fabulous weekend!

hello. said...

got a chuckle from the comparison of your son to houdini :) sitting on a balcony in the still of the night sounds so romantic + lovely! + i love the possibility of a whole stack of pretty patterned fabrics! have a fun-filled weekend annabella!

i can just feel your joy over that fabric pile.
i also admire and rather envy little ones' ability to sleep so easily.

These are all so wonderful-what a great way for you and your husband to slow down from the day and connect with your nights on the balcony.
