I had yesterday all planned, I was going to watch EY ep14 and then spend rest of the day marathoning Arsenal Military Academy but I did nothing of that and ended up going on a long drive, chasing snow instdead!

I live in one of the hottest countries in the middle east so snow is rare.. like, really, we don’t even get much rain! So when we heard it snowed on the mountains (top of the highest mountain in the country), without giving it a second’s thought we got in the car and drove, 3 hours to get to the mountain, 1 more to get to the top.. but being our unlucky selves there was nothing but muddy, slippery roads, snow had all melted already! Still it was worth it, the cold (7°c) was a nice change to our usual 40+ degrees, a girls-only trip (also, rare! We never seem to find time to meet up), we laughed and sang till our voices went hoarse, and danced the cold away, the most fun I had in a really long while!

Also, this view .. our beautiful rocky mountains!

      Yeah, we wanted to see it so bad, but it’s okay, it was still fun.. getting those girls together (finally) in itself was worth it 😂

    That’s a breathtaking view, azzo. And I envy you for the cold day. We are waiting for rain here, hoping it will chase away some of the sweltering heat.

      It is, thank you! Yes, summer seems to be finally ending, it rained last week so the weather is getting a little better, still in 30s during the day, though, but not complaning, LOL!

          You’re welcome! Not yet, on my TBR.

          The writer is actually the cousin of a friend of mine but (shame on me) I haven’t read it yet, she won the Man Booker prize for it so everyone was really proud of her for being the 1st Arabic-language writer to win it!

      Yes, it did, and the best thing the girls are already planning what to do next, all it needed was to just get them together for once and now they want more, LOL!

      Oh, thank you! I’ll check your wall once I’m done with all of my notifications, 90+ are waiting for me, pretty sure most are because of my AMA spam, haha!
