So in case you are wondering why I haven't been blogging I have been BEYOND busy. I am about to start a new job while wrapping up the one I already have which means changing visas and doing alot of paperwork ect on time I DON'T HAVE. I have been teaching full-time (by Omani standards anyways---that means from 7am-1pm) this month with classes of 20 students [mixed---boys and girls in their late teens], I have been getting orders finished for my online abaya business, and I have also, of course, been one full-time Mommy and ;) a part-time wife. I am also moving inshaAllah at the end of this month so apartment/house hunting. And unlike the majority of working Moms in the Khaleej, I don't do maids. So my little Zz has daycare with a nanny who is not the live-in type.
These are some photos of the place I will inshaAllah start working at soon as my class grads in time for Ramadan:
|Semi-shaded pathway between the Administration building and the library/archives building|
|Looking Up going into the Grande Ceremonial Hall (which I haven't photographed yet)|
|My favourite place to sit. Just detached from the Library and student cafeteria is this cool shaded courtyard complete with Omani-style lightly gushing fountains styled like a "falaj" system and date palms. So peaceful here.|
|Same courtyard area (not my photo) from another angle.|
|Design of the Uni buildings.|
|I believe this is the courtyard entrance coming off of the student cafeteria.|
|The Omani/Khaleeji history department wing of the library (not my space but ooh la la it is BEAUTIFUL)|
|Pretty dreamy work area within the historical section of the reference (history section again) area of the library.|
Bye for now.
