I'm still stitching on the American Flag Quilt. It's a good way to while away the hours...
So this newest block is Utah, the Beehive State. It joined the union on January 4, 1896, making it the 45th state. (Seriously, only 5 left?!)
So I thought I'd give you guys a better picture of how Ramadan has been going this year: we sleep all day long (my husband's still on leave recovering from his arm surgery, and I'm on summer vacation, so this part is easy!). By the time we wake up, we've only got a few hours to kill before sundown.
Then it's cooking time. Ramadan has a menu entirely of its own, very different from our meals the rest of the year. We break our fast with buttermilk, some dates, soup, and different kinds of samosas. At this point I'm usually full - when you haven't eaten all day, your stomach shrinks. We wait about an hour and then have a normal meal, where I'll make lasagne or a casserole or a stew, whatever. We'll eat little things off and on all night, staying up until dawn, when we have one more meal, usually a kind of breakfast food, before we have to stop. Then it's to bed to start all over again!
Wish us luck!
