No school tomorrow! I want to wake my kids up! But then they will be awake and then all this lovely silence will no longer be. Allah Yihfath’hum (God keep them safe) I will let them sleep. They canceled schools tomorrow because it has rained almost non stop all day mashallah. And I guess they expect it to go on all day tomorrow. We are not equipped to deal with the rain. We are a dry dry dry country here and its a happy happy day when it rains.
Just go to YouTube and type in ‘Rain in Riyadh 2011’ and you will see how excited we all are about it. I have included here what is probably one of the most boring videos I have seen in a while but it serves the purpose. Once again, I lost 40 mins of my life trying to embed the damn video :-( if you want to see it please click here.
Horray Horray I did it!
I found out there is no school tomorrow when I was at my grandmother’s house and just managed to get S on the phone before he nodded off to tell him. I told him the King said he doesn’t have to go to school. He didn’t believe me! Ok, the King didn’t specify S per-say but never the less. Today was J’s last day but she was none the less excited about their being no school tomorrow.
Referring back to the ‘Stuff J Says About Work’ she ended up wearing jodhpurs a white polo shirt and a helmet and was happy she was the only ‘horse trainer’ there. According to J the rest were “Just Dr’s or Kitcheners” (Chefs).
So… a little annoyed we spent an hour on homework… but anyway. Watch tomorrow be a lovely sunny day. It poured, mashallah, and poured and poured all day today and was (is) freezing. (Our freezing which means its 7 degrees Celsius). My feet are cold. It seems to have all cleared up now anyway.
So Happy Rain Day all of Riyadh :-)
