As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved Asiatic Black Bebies!!!
I just thought of something this morning I could write about that is in line with the homemaking format of this blog!!!
That really made me excited because I still think about that.
This is SUPPOSED to be a homemaking blog.
At least, that is the title.
Even though when I started it, my intention was to get you to read Message To The Blackman in America by The Honourable Elijah Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). As that is THE most important thing we can do in this time of the end of this world as we know it.
However, personally, I had to read another book before I was ready to read Message To The Blackman in America.
So, I thought I would start the blog as maybe a prerequisite to someone else reading Message To The Blackman in America.
I realize how powerful a book it is and that some people may not be ready for the life-changing effect it can have on your life.
So, I started a homemaking blog as my first priority is Blackwomen and helping Our Beloved Messenger in his duty of delivering the Message of Allah to our people.
But anyway, when I first got a place to stay in New Orleans, I was really taken by the attention to luxury in the home. I was staying in a transitional housing unit and this aspect of decorating was noticeable even in the face of such privation.
One of the things that stood out was that the shower curtains consisted of both a curtain and a liner.
Now, I was familiar with the concept of the dual layer shower curtain, but being from L.A., Idk, it never seemed to matter.
But now I am living in my SECOND transitional shelter and this one also has the dual shower curtain. The first transitional housing unit also had a fancy stand for the toilet paper which I know is due to the French roots New Orleans is built upon.
As homemakers, we are responsible for providing a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere in our homes for our families to enjoy and this is a small detail that can make a big difference.
Of course, rugs and decorative pictures go without saying, but adding a liner to the shower curtain adds a nice touch and also makes so much sense!
The liner stays inside the tub and the curtain hangs outside. That way you don’t have to worry about it being outside when you take a shower and water ruining your home!
Simplify your life and save yourself the hassle by purchasing liners for your shower!
I was so dissatisfied with the images for shower curtains that came up on Google, so I G’d mansion bathrooms because I knew I had seen some nicer bathrooms than the ones that came up.
But the ones that came up for mansions, don’t even have shower curtains. They all have glass doors. So, just to give you a little something to look forward to… 😀
I love how SPACIOUS this next one is. (below)
When I shower or bathe, it’s like a ritual.
You know ABLUTIONS are big for Muslims. Five times a day at least. I may take two showers a day. Or a shower in the morning and a bath at night and another shower in the morning. It’s spiritual.
Ablutions are like prayers. We are not only cleansing our bodies, we are asking Allah to remove and forgive us of any sins we may have committed with our bodies since our last ablution.
So, needless to say, the bathroom is like my sanctuary. I HAVE to have music. Candles are nice. Incense too. Lavender essential oils are essential. 😉
But, because I spend so much time in there, I would really love a bathroom like this.
I have been known to lay down on the floor and take a nap on my bathtowel after getting out of the bath. I get so relaxed. LOL
Anyway, check it out!
That looks like it could be a pantry, which would also be cool because you know I take snacks in there with me. Frfr. 😛 Maybe even a microwave or oven would be cool too. I could bake cookies while I’m in there. No joke. I would.
I keep my bathroom clean enough to eat out of.
M.G.T. are instructed to clean the commode after every use. And I get down on my hands and knees and CLEAN.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Okay, okay, okay, I’m gonna be honest.
The REAL reason I like how spacious that bottom bathroom is, is because I like to dance in the bathroom too.
And sometimes, I can get a real modern dance “FAME” like type of a groove going on, doing “splits” and kicks and taking up a whole lot of room. I would love this bathroom for that option.
Yeah, I know. Sometimes, I can be really honest.
But admit it. That’s why you love me. 😀
btw If you take a shower or bath and get out and parts of your body are not wet, you cannot call yourself clean.
