Neferneferuaten Nefertiti (ca. 1370-1330 BC) was an Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife of Akhenaten, an Egyptian Pharaoh. She and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped 1 god only, Aten, or the sun disc. They were responsible for the creation of a whole new religion which changed the ways of religion within Egypt. With her husband, she reigned at what was the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history. Some scholars believe that Nefertiti ruled briefly as Neferneferuaten after her husband’s death and before the accession of Tutankhamun, although this identification is a matter of ongoing debate.
She was made famous by her bust, now in Berlin, Germany’s Neues Museum. It’s one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt. It was attributed to the sculptor Thutmose, and it was found in his workshop. The bust is notable for exemplifying the understanding Ancient Egyptians had regarding realistic facial proportions.
#1370“Everytime I start panicking and my anxiety is overpowering me, (with all my rituals, and counts, and numbers and thing that must be done in the same exact order everyday…) I like to imagine Thorin hugging me from behind and holding me until I calm down. Then we lie down together on my bed and he sings to me in Khuzdul until I fall asleep.”

Time to be kinder to myself.
So what if I gained weight.
I’m still a healthy weight.
I’m not scared of certain foods anymore.
I’ve enjoyed the foods I’ve eaten.
I’ve enjoyed the wine I’ve drunk.
I’ve enjoyed the company I’ve kept.
I’ve fueled my new strength training plan.
I’ve fueled my long days at work.
I’ve nourished my soul.
I’ve tried new things.
It’s been great.
So why feel bad?
I may have got the balance a little wrong, but no one gets its right all the time.
So instead of feeling glutinous and lazy and down on myself, I’ll just pick up some better habits again. A little less sugar and fat. Still enjoy ‘soul foods’ everyday, but just make sure they don’t outnumber wholesome grub. Keep an eye on my salt, drink plenty of water, move a little.
It’ll come with time and practice. But I’m healthy. Now to let myself just be happy.
based on a request. I’m so sorry it took so long. I hope you like it.

„Carol.“ Daryl had suddenly appeared behind her, not sure whether to ask her for help or not until the very last second. “Yes, what is it, Pookie?” She turned around with a loving smile on her face. As far as Daryl could tell she probably already knew why he was here. “She said ‘yes’.” “She did!?” Carol’s smile grew bigger. “See, I told you. And you were all nervous.” She giggled. “I always knew you two would end up together.” “I know. I’m sorry I didn’t believe ya. I’m not sure I believe it now.” “She agreed to spend the rest of her life with you, Daryl, you better start believing.” She gently placed her hand on his arm, a reassuring gesture, loving, caring, just like the mother he never had. “I’m so happy for you”, she said pulling him closer, placing a kiss on his forehead. “But you did not come here for the sole purpose of telling me about your engagement, right!?” She stepped away giving him an amused once over. “I need help.” Daryl stepped from one foot to the other, biting his lower lip. “Of course I’ll help you, Pookie. I want this to be the best day of her life as well. I love both of you like family, I’ll do whatever I can.” Carol laughed in excitement. She hadn’t had the chance to go through all this with her daughter so she was more than happy and willing to take on this part for both Daryl and his beloved fiancée.

This is an impressive double page, measuring a staggering 74 x 95 cm when open, from a lavish copy of the Qur'an made in Egypt c. 1370. It is on loan from the Chester Beatty Library whose conservation team shared this photo of it being installed. The Mamluk Sultans, who ruled Syria, Egypt and the region of Hijaz in Saudi Arabia between 1250 and 1517, were responsible for some of the most impressive copies of the Qur'an ever produced.
Casimir III the Great was the only Polish King to receive the title of “Great”.
He built extensively during his reign, and reformed the Polish army
along with the country’s civil and criminal laws, 1333–1370.
Casimir inherited a kingdom weakened by war and made it prosperous and
wealthy. He reformed the Polish army and doubled the size of the kingdom
through conquest. He reformed the judicial system and introduced a
legal code, gaining the title “the Polish Justinian”. Casimir built extensively and founded the University of Kraków, the oldest Polish university. He also confirmed privileges and protections previously granted to Jews and encouraged them to settle in Poland in great numbers.
