Berry Quiet Weekend

Hey Double D's!

I know this isn't my first post of the year, but let me use this post to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I wish every one of you a wonderful year in 2015. May your heart's desires be aligned with God's purpose for you and be fulfilled! May your hearts be full of joy in all circumstances! And may you keep reading my blog, telling your friends to read my blog, and your friends tell their friends' friends to read my blog. And we all say... :D

We had a loooooooooooooooooooooong weekend. January 1st and 2nd were holidays, so I looked forward to a fun fun time, hanging out with friends and just generally chilling.

The original plan was to be at church for Crossover Service. Alas, Cakes and I had been up very very early on New Year's Eve, so after work and visiting family friends, we decided to go home and rest for a little bit before heading out to church. By the time he tried to wake me up at 10pm, my body was just uninterested in leaving the bed. The next thing I know, it's 12:50am and blawdy neighbors are shooting knockout, firecrackers, and fireworks outside - meanwhile, Cakes is fast asleep beside me. The knockout noise went on till about 3am or so, and that's when I was finally able to go back to sleep.

By New Year's Day, my throat started feeling funny. I kinda pushed it aside, and we went visiting family and friends (and my godchildren). Unfortunately, by the following day, I was quite sick. Sick enough that Cakes entertained friends in our apartment and I was too sick to leave the bedroom. Yeah, it was that bad. I had planned to attend this music event (The Music Lounge, which holds periodically) with Bex and StyleFash, but by late afternoon, it was clear that leaving my bed would be a bad idea. So I decided to stay home and attack the illness with rest, fluids and medicine.

*FYI - No, I'm not pregnant [yet]. It was a fluish coldish sore-throatish thingy*

Enh heh, so I attacked and attacked and attacked, and guess what? FLAWLESS VICTORY!!! Okay, that's a lie. Yeah, I felt a whole lot better by Sunday morning, but there was still a general weak feeling and just needing meds. I was able to go to church with Cakes, and later in the afternoon, we headed to Terra Kulture to watch a play. Towunmi Coker is a medical student, who has a heart for literary arts, has been showing "Promise of The Future" across different theaters in Lagos; it's based on her novel of the same title and is about a young girl whose unfortunate circumstances force her to become a housemaid. It was very engaging and I'm super impressed by Ms. Coker. I also met a lovely reader at the play - Hiya Toyin!

Sooooooooooo, apart from the play yesterday, I didn't do a darn thing. I promise I'll do better next weekend.

Have a berry pretty week!
