I mentioned in my last post how I'm surrounded by eye images here. Well these are a couple of my good luck charms, tho that may not be the proper terminology for them. They are protection against the evil eye. Both the eye shape and the color blue are symbolic of that.
Emotionally, I'm in a countdown until we leave Egypt. I had a long honeymoon period of being thrilled to live here - it lasted two years. But now that I know the end is in sight, I'm more annoyed than ever by silly things. Our tour is up on October 6th, tho we may get out of here a tad earlier than that. So we've got six months left. Trying to get all my "exit shopping" done, tho for the most part I don't have any major items left on my list. Now it's more a matter of all the places we haven't seen.
I've finally decided to start planning day trips and little holidays, rather than waiting for my husband to tell me when is a good time to go. I'm done with that - I'll pick and he gets to go. We've lived here 2 1/2 years and have only been to the pyramids at Giza once and that was just after we got here and were still jet-lagged and my sweetie had a cold. So we need to do that properly and he's never been to the Egyptian Museum here in Cairo. Pretty silly when he works just a 15 minute walk away from it. Our big trip will be in April - a trip south to see Abu Simbel and more of Luxor. Assuming we can get there that is - we're wait-listed for flights.
What else is up? I've gotten a couple more blocks quilted on "Space 4 Rent." I decided to test Bonnie's theory of every fabric works so long as it's cut into small enough pieces. I have a bunch of 1 1/2" squares and I still don't like the fabric, but they aren't sewn yet, so I need to be patient. I'm thinking of a 9-patch leaders and enders project. Something mindless.
I'm watching "Dead Like Me" which I borrowed from a friend. I was pretty surprised at how much I enjoy it. Very quirky and very much about living in the NOW. Of course it's been cancelled already. Saw M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" and boy what a pointless movie that was. A great big "so what." I love "The Sixth Sense" but every movie he's made since then has been incrementally worse.
