Of Easter Traditions… Happy Easter Weekend Y’all!

Source

It’s the infamous Easter Weekend!

Not sure if it’s such a big deal out there, but here, the most exciting part about it for most is getting a free day of off work! People love public holidays, it’s always a great reason to over indulge in food and mostly alcohol! I bet most started getting ready for this Weekend when the month began.

We have such a strong drinking culture in Kenya it’s no longer something we can conceal. On most other normal Weekends, Partying Starts on Thursday evening(Cause Thursday is the new Friday) and ends on Sunday Evening.I was guilty of this back then when I was in corporate. We’d get so excited at the thought of the weekend approaching.

Now, I can only imagine how excited most offices were this entire Week. This was and most likely will be the longest Weekend they will have for the rest of the year. I guess when you think of it as such, then there’s no shame in indulging as much as anyone possibly can.

The point of this post however, was to ask you guys what Easter Traditions you have wherever you’re from. I see people talking about Easter eggs & Easter bunnies on my timeline, and quite frankly, I have no idea what that’s all about, but it’s great to see people get excited over colorful eggs & bunnies. They are beautiful.

Besides the drinking and the partying, those that don’t really indulge tend to go to church, especially on Good Friday, and just praise & worship, remembering that God is the season for the season. Depending on where one is, it sort of feels like a Mini Xmas. And who doesn’t like Christmas right?

While personally I’ll not be indulging in anything (I will be here creating & pushing as always), it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. In fact, I want to encourage you to go out there and enjoy this long a** Weekend, do that one thing you have been wanting to do but putting it on hold. Personally I don’t have any of that at the moment, but if I did, I would so be jumping on it.

Other than that, I just wanted to take a minute to Wish You All An Amazing Easter Weekend! Have a Blast!

Lotsa <3, Elsie.

Daily Food Photography Challenge| Tuesday’s Lunch..

Wednesday the 16th, April 2019!
Can you believe how fast into the year we already are? I have my mind blown away every single damn time I think about how fast I’m growing old!

Stay positive Elsie, Stay Positive!

I’m trying, I really I’m. One of the things that I have found that tends to help me do that is my simple daily photography and doing my daily vlogs. Also, to know me is to know I love my food as much as I love my life!In another life I’d probably be a food vlogger or photographer, but as it is, I am neither given my circumstances. But who knows, I might actually explore that side of my life in this lifetime.

But like the title of today’s challenge suggests, we are dailg the #dailyfoodphotography challenge courtesy of @jznsamuel. I am a couple of hours late for the Tuesday’s Lunch entry, but don’t they say better late than never?

I think this dish is very popular in very many parts of the world, the only difference is on how people prepare it, and probably how they call it. On my part of the world, we call this beef stew. There are alot of ways to make it also, it’s usually a mix of beef, potatoes, carrots and sometimes peas. How do you have your beef stew?

Normally we accompany it with some rice, or chapati, like I had mine yesterday. Here’s some chapati.

I am not that big a fan of chapati, but it makes for a great meal once in a while. Not sure if you guys have this where you’re from, but it’s just dough flattened and cooked with cooking oil on a pan. Maybe a recipe one of this days, who knows.

To New Beginnings & Broadening Horizons..

FINALLY!

I can’t tell you guys how excited I am to finally have my wordpress blog set up. It’s been a long time coming and not even enough words can express the joy in my face for getting this done.

Sadly or fortunately, I get to start over this venture from the ground up once again. I am more excited than scared, and that’s probably because writing has always been a welcome hobby since I was a small girl. It’s not because I am great at it, but because it was the best way I could express myself. You see, I am not much of a talker in real life, I think I live in my head most of the time and that’s perfectly fine.

I had to let my old blog go (www.lifecatalogs.wordpress.com ) because upgrading and maitaining it would have been too expensive for my taste. And I’m sad I have to leave my following behind, but I am comforted by the thought of this being a new different niche so they probably wouldn’t be entertained as before. But just for the few that might be interested to follow along, I will be sharing a post once in a while in a bid to drive them here.

Being on the blockchain has been the greatest event of my life so far. I am always left speechless when I think of the endless opportunities this new tech has to offer and this blog will be mostly revolving around creating amazing content that will be shared on to the STEEM BLOCKCHAIN.

That’s not to say it won’t be fun and provoking,if anything, it will be a lot more than that! You can expect a lot of photography, humor, motivational and informative posts. I have recently found myself very interested in photography and I have been getting my camera out more than I thought I could. And on some days, maybe a vlog here and there 😉

Talking of photography… Here are some magical sunset moments from my trip back in December at the Maasai Mara Conservancy Reserve,Kenya.

This has got to be a MUST have trip at least once in your lifetime. It almost felt like being in durastic world and the fresh African jungle air was refreshing!

There was so much to see and do and I will probably make that my next post so stay tuned.

To end this post, You can call me El. I’m a digital lifestyle enthusiast, wine lover, humorous and just basically out to inspire. I believe inspiration comes in different form, doesn’t have to be through text or words. So whatever inspires you, do it more often.

If you would like to be part of my journey, do hit the follow button. I’ll try my best not to disappoint. Until the next one.

Welcome to My Blog.
