Life Lately: Taking Stock 4



Hello my Loves! I've missed you so much. I stopped Taking Stock/Diary on a daily basis because,I had a slight anxiety that perhaps I might be giving out too much info and might be crossing the privacy/blogger line. And, majorly because I felt that who in the World will come here everyday to read how you spent your day?
Well, I was wrong, at least that's what my stats on those previous posts state. Thank you for your support even if most of you prefer to come and see what's new here, read, and go without commenting. Just so you know, we have since passed the 25,000 views(and counting) benchmark, and iBlogWithGrace has over 47,000 and counting. All organic views, ha! We are growing y'all. Indeed, God is great!
Special Shout to one you I met the other day, Chimamaka.

Wanting: to get to Lagos, and literally stab the new tailor I was introduced to in the eye with a fork. Dude has held my material and money hostage for one month and some days now. He promised 2 weeks! If only I listened to my guts and stuck to my tailor. You will understand my predicament if you have ever encountered a Nigerian no-show Tailor.

It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss
