About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

      Thank you Janet. It was a chilling day. That’s what I did. Chilled and didn’t cook. I did clean the house a little, ran the swifter, and dusted. The cleaning woman hasn’t come since the lock down. M vacuumed, and I did the sweeping etc. of the hard wood floors. This has become a norm for us anymore. Feels good after it is done. I went and visited the kids yesterday with flowers and a massage certificate; Sayeed wanted us to go there this morning and he would make his famous beignet and fruit salad. I told him, I just didn’t feel like getting out of the house. So we sat and watched a movie after cleaning and after lunch and then I took a long nap,(I was tired), and a sweet neighbour who loves Indian food, made some, and brought it over along with a wonderful piece of cake.
      So, it was a good day after all!

        That sounds perfect, Zakiah — doing just what you wanted, and not doing what you didn’t want! I’m re-domesticating myself these days, learning to cook again — today I tackled a dinner roll recipe that I used to love (I need to try it again and play with the recipe a little before I share it with anybody!). It was a gray day today, after all the heat we had earlier last week, so it was nice just to stay home!

  2. Happy Mother’s Day, Z!!!!!

    Happy Mother’s Day!! Your day sounds lovely (and filled with love)! I was able to lounge around today. Sparky bought lunch and let me putz around on the computer. The boys brought me a pizza for dinner and we had a good visit (even though we social distanced and there were no hugs or kisses)… I talked to my mother and she sends her greetings!

    • Zakiah says:
