I went a bit nuts today with the shopping. Spent too much money. I'm normally very cheap (I may be cheap but I'm not inexpensive - ha ha ha) and don't splurge but today I decided to go ahead and buy some blue and white Palestinian pottery that I've wanted.
If I'd actually bothered to translate the prices into dollars, there's no way I would have bought the tray (ouch). I think it was the acquisitive part of my brain that refused to do the math so that I could go ahead and just buy it. Now that I have it, I'll enjoy it. To look at anyway. We entertain so infrequently that I can't justify buying anything using that excuse.
The phrenology head on the left is from London, England. I've now brought back two large ones and a smaller one in my carry-on luggage. No, that's how many I have; I brought back another one as well for a friend who collects hats. Don't ask me why, I just love these heads. Phrenology is the "science" of reading bumps on the head. Kind of like palm reading only different.
We had a wicked amount of rain yesterday and the night before last. Just amazing. Now there are enormous mud puddles everywhere and the trees and bushes all look incredibly bright and green. Usually all the foliage is covered in dust/sand and looks dirty.
I don't know if it's the rain causing problems with the plumbing, but our water pressure is low. Had to wait ages before I could take a shower this morning and we were out of hot water last time I checked. Ah, apartment living. It's just too hard for the water to make it all the way up here to the fifth floor.
I'm goofing off instead of sewing. I did do some of that earlier and my excuse now is that I have to ponder my next move. Yeah, that's it.
