Ramadan - Day 24

Had really good sleep, can't remember the last time I felt this well in the morning, Alhamdullilah.
Day worked like this:

Slept at 01.00 - zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz get up for Sehri at 04.45 - eat (consuming special K, yep watching my figure!), Salat
Back to bed at 05.50 - more zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz up at 09.05 - Not late for work, had a Dentist Appointment
Dental Appointment at 09.30 - No drilling, toothpaste, or water going down, the mouth was open the throat was closed for action, it was a Brother Beyond who was checking my teeth, so hey he knows when the mask comes in handy when a fasting brother hits his chair!
...Back to work at 10.35...and ground hog day as far as work is concerned, emails, meetings, more emails, more meetings, testing, walk to the Mosque, emails, testing, oh hey its 18.00!
By 18.25, packed my desk to be out of the work, mind you been mentally out of work mode by 17.00! Suppose thats what Dolly Parton means by "working 9 to 5", its mental not the physical.

Read more of the Qur'an when I got home from Taraweeh, was really not feeling as motivated but once I opened the Al Furqan, motivation flowed like the the Aguazu Falls! Was rather disappointed as I missed the time to perform Tahajjud prayers (pre-Fajr) as got up late a few minutes before Fajr Adhan.

Completed Jus 20, in the early morning of Thursday. Masha'Allah, 10 to go and in 5 days or less....the heat is on....
