Keep It Alive
|Today’s Cuppa is with Sadje of Keep It Alive|
I started my blogging journey on 6th September 2018. It was a whimsical decision inspired by Dr Tanya’s blog. Initially, I planned to write about empty nesters like me and the issues women over 50 faces. But as I went on, my blog evolved into something more. I started writing poetry and fiction in addition to my health/occupational-related posts.
Gradually my focus has shifted, and now I write in response to the many weekly and monthly prompts hosted by my fellow bloggers. I write meaningful and inspiring posts that convey a message of positivity. I love writing poetry and can better share my message in poetic form.
|What inspires you the most, and are there subjects you write about more than others?|
Life inspires me in general and people, in particular, inspire me to write about their issues, their attitudes toward life, and how people deal with them.
What do you do for relaxation?
Blogging is my most considerable relaxation. The connection with the community here and sharing our concerns and experiences is such an enriching experience.
I also find walking, listening to music, and reading relaxing.
A book you could read over and over and why?
I read the Holy Quran every day! I’ve read it many, many times throughout my life. I gain so much knowledge and guidance from reading Quran every day. It also answers the questions that arise in my mind and gives me the confidence to do the right thing in life.
Do you prefer to cook for friends or go out to a restaurant?
When I invite a few friends for a meal, I prefer to cook it at home. The cosy ambience of the home is much desired to the noisy environment of a restaurant. Besides, my friends want me to make my unique dishes for that meal. But we go out for a meal if I’m short on time. I love going out for breakfast with my friends and family.
Do you have a signature dish you enjoy creating for friends and family? What is it?
Over the years, I’ve learned to cook quite a few dishes. Haleem is one of them. It’s a hearty dish of meat ( chicken), lentils, porridge/ wheat, and rice. For desserts, I make a few dishes well. Apple pie, bread and butter pudding, caramel custard, and fruit trifle are the ones I’m asked to make.
What do you like best to do with your hands?
I like to write with my hands on my phone/ laptop these days. Formerly, I liked to sew, knit, and do other handicrafts, but now the aching joints prevent me from doing that.
What is your favourite way to while away an hour?
Blogging is my favourite way to spend time. Reading the posts posted while I was away from my blog, commenting on them, and answering the comments made in response to my comments or on my posts are delightful ways to spend time.
What is a question you never tire of being asked?
I love talking about theology. I always enjoy discussing faith and its implications on life. Since blogging, I’ve learned much about the different religions people follow. And it’s such an enriching experience.
What is your favourite flower?
I love flowers that have a sweet scent. Roses, narcissi, and tuberoses are a few grown in my country. Narcissi are my favourite because they are available in winter, near my birthday.
